::::::::::If a ''newbie'' (which none of us here are) were to read the "'''author''': ..." part you mention ''in isolation'' (which no one should be doing, ''especially'' as a basis for mass-editing), I could see that as being "unclear", but the fault would be with the user, not the documentation. These are not the cases here (I hope). &nbsp;&nbsp;<b>~</b>&nbsp;<font style="font-family:Monotype Corsiva; font-size:16px;">[[User:Tom.Reding|Tom.Reding]] ([[User talk:Tom.Reding|talk]] ⋅[[WP:DGAF|dgaf]])</font>&nbsp; 13:36, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
:::::::::::I can only repeat that I find the documentation of the template unclear. It says {{para|author}} should "never" be used to hold the names of more than one author, whereas the use of {{para|authors}} is only "discouraged". Now it may well be that {{U|Dcirovic}} should have understood that changing from {{para|author}} to {{para|authors}} isn't the correct fix, but I really don't see how it can be claimed that this is not acceptable according to the documentation. Changing from "never" use to "discouraged" appears to be a minor improvement. If it isn't, change the documentation. No more from me on this subject!

== IASS_logo.jpg ==
Hi Dcirovic. First of all, thank you for your help with the Iass article and with starting editing at Wikipedia. I have a question, the File:IASS logo.jpg was accidentally uploaded at Wikimedia Commons. Perhaps I was not clear enough in my uploading request, but the IASS is the owner of this image and it is protected by copyright. So it should not have been uploaded on Wikimedia Commons. Is it possible to change the image from Wikimedia Commons to Wikipedia (only for the article [[Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies]]) and maybe to set the licensing to logo? (https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:IASS_logo.jpg)
--[[User:Sabine Iass|Sabine Iass]] ([[User talk:Sabine Iass|talk]]) 17:30, 8 December 2016 (UTC)
 
: {{re|Sabine Iass}} You could upload the image to [[Wikipedia:File Upload Wizard|enwiki]] and request image deletion at Wikimedia Commons. You may also want to notify [[user:Brianga]], who uploaded that image to Commons. --[[User:Dcirovic|Dcirovic]] ([[User talk:Dcirovic#top|talk]]) 17:42, 8 December 2016 (UTC)

== This IP 79.75.127.247 puts false info on artictles of [[Galkayo]] and [[galmudug]] ==
 
This IP 79.75.127.247 keeps putting false information on articles of [[Galkayo]] and [[Galmudug]] . He deletes reliably sourced true information and he replaces it with false information while keeping some of the original sources. He puts information that is not verifiable on articles of [[galkayo]] and [[galmudug]]. Please keep an eye on those articles for fake information. This user keeps coming back to put fake content while deleting the true content. He always deletes large chunks of data from these articles.

Please realise that IP addresses are shared by thousands of people and attempting to use them to identify people is ridiculous. They have no relevance. Please stop leaving messages aimed at particular IPs.
:{{re|149.254.235.8}} I am fully aware of how IP addresses are used on Wikipedia. It is meaningful and necessary to leave messages on the IP user talk pages. While IP address assignments are subject to change, that does not take place instantly. A message left for a reasonable person, who unintentionally made mistake, usually resolves the problem. In the cases of outright vandalisms, the record of warning messages helps patrollers and administrators in suppressing vandalism. --[[User:Dcirovic|Dcirovic]] ([[User talk:Dcirovic#top|talk]]) 12:56, 18 February 2017 (UTC)

Hi! Thank you for all your work adding {{tl|short pages monitor}} to brief dab pages. It does not go unnoticed!
 
I'm here because of your [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Council_of_Ministers_(Ukraine)&diff=next&oldid=769222084 edit summary]. No, all links do not need to be blue but, per [[MOS:DABRL]], every entry in a dab page ''must'' have one blue link. A red link with no blue-linked article is useless to anyone trying to find an article. Cheers! — [[User:Gorthian|Gorthian]] ([[User talk:Gorthian#top|talk]]) 20:25, 8 March 2017 (UTC)

Hi! I noticed you changed some articles from Level 2 to Level 4, such as [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Construction&oldid=873984217 here]. I couldn't find, in the link you provided in your edit summary, [https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/List_of_articles_every_Wikipedia_should_have/Expanded], discussion about moving these articles from level 2 to level 4.

I was under an impression that '''enwiki''' page [[Wikipedia:Vital articles]] corresponds to the [[:m:List of articles every Wikipedia should have|list of one thousand articles]] that are considered vital to '''all''' languages.
