User talk:CmdrObot: Difference between revisions

 
: Oh dear. Thanks for catching that. I did in fact make some changes to my bot on Monday evening to prevent it from ever editing the cover parameter in those templates, so it shouldn't happen again. Before the changes I kept an eye out for those kinds of change, but obviously that one slipped through. Sorry! [[User:CmdrObot|CmdrObot]] ([[User talk:CmdrObot|talk]]) 23:33, 17 November 2010 (UTC)
 
==Alternate vs. Alternative on music articles==
Cmdrobot has been correcting "alternate version" to "alternative version" on music articles, per a guideline which favors British English in general for this variant. However, "alternative" has a specific meaning in popular music (see [[alternative music]]), and the bot's last few dozen edits show at least several cases of this correction being made on articles by alternative rock artists. Naturally, this is quite confusing (e.g., on [[Steal This Album!]], where "alternative versions" makes it sound like the band has recorded the songs in a particular genre, rather than being a separate take). This grammar fix should be nixed for music articles, or should be corrected by hand. [[User:Chubbles|Chubbles]] ([[User talk:Chubbles|talk]]) 21:05, 18 November 2010 (UTC)
