July 2012 Study of authors of health-related Wikipedia pagesEdit

Dear Author/Dcirovic

My name is Nuša Farič and I am a Health Psychology MSc student at University College London (UCL). I am currently running a quantitative study entitled Who edits health-related Wikipedia pages and why? I am interested in the editorial experience of people who edit health-related Wikipedia pages. I am interested to learn more about the authors of health-related pages on Wikipedia and what motivations they have for doing so. I am currently contacting the authors of randomly selected articles and I noticed that someone at this address recently edited an article on Age-related muscular degeneration. I would like to ask you a few questions about you and your experience of editing the above mentioned article. If you would like more information about the project, please visit my user page (Hydra_Rain) and if interested, please visit my Talk page or e-mail me on nusa.faric.11@ucl.ac.uk. Also, others interested in the study may contact me! If I do not hear back from you I will not contact this account again. Thank you very much in advance. Hydra Rain (talk) 21:54, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for January 7Edit

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited 8-Hydroxygeraniol dehydrogenase, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Cinc (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Interlanguage linksEdit

Hi there. I happened to notice you've been adding a lot of interlanguage links. I was wondering if you'd heard of the Wikidata project, and, if so, if you'd be interested in helping out. The links you add will all wind up there eventually, but you'd save the bots some time if you added your links to Wikidata directly – plus, with it going live on all other wikis on March 6, every link addition would have a global impact. — PinkAmpers&(Je vous invite à me parler) 22:46, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

Creating disambiguation pagesEdit

Hi Dcirovic. Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. I see you have been busy creating disambiguation pages the last couple of days. Before creating a disambiguation page please take a moment to rethink if these page are really needed and if these pages will follow the guidelines at Wikipedia:Disambiguation. For example, I have undone your creation of CLH and GEH because the enzym abbreviation is not mentioned within the linked article at the disambiguation page, see WP:DABABBREV. In general, usage of terms appearing on a disambiguation page must be supported by the linked articles. Another example with problems is Protein kinase (histidine), see WP:PTM (and WP:INCDAB, see also: CHST15 (gene)), but since I don't have any knowledge of enzymes and such I'll leave it up to you to decide what to do with Protein kinase (histidine). Thank you. LittleWink (talk) 18:20, 2 April 2013 (UTC)

Hello again. The changes you made to the articles are fine with me, I've restored CLH and GEH as disambiguation pages. About the other pages:
Since the article Protein kinase exists a disambiguation with the base name 'Protein kinase' should be placed at Protein kinase (disambiguation). But first read WP:DABCONCEPT. Again, I have no knowledge about genes and enzymes. But what I'm thinking is: are the topics listed on the disambiguation pages really so different/ambigious that it is necessary to have separate disambiguation pages for Protein kinase and Triacylglycerol lipase? Maybe it is better to explain the differences between them in the 'base name' articles, or is it sufficient to add them to a See also section? LittleWink (talk) 16:51, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

Lys-gingipainEdit

Hi. You created a page with this title, but it was a redirect to itself. I had a look at your contributions, but could not see any obvious target it might have been meant for, so I have deleted it, and let you know so that you can re-create it. Regards, JohnCD (talk) 15:21, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

Would you like to help with 3(or 17)b-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase)?Edit

On List of EC numbers (EC 1) appears the line

clicking on the above link redirects to 3alpha(17beta)-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (NAD+), which is not EC 1.1.1.51; it is EC 1.1.1.239. I believe the redirect is incorrect and Wikipedia needs an article and not a redirect for 3(or 17)b-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase. Would you like to do that? Respectfully, Anomalocaris (talk) 05:45, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for fixing it! —Anomalocaris (talk) 15:18, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

Your EC articles and other enzyme articlesEdit

I like how you've added content in Wikipedia articles for so many enzymes based on granular EC numbers. However, I've noticed that some of these articles are redundant with other Wikipedia articles about enzymes. For example, ADAM10 endopeptidase seems redundant with ADAM10 and collagenase seems redundant with interstitial collagenase. Each article pair shares the same EC number, and each article in those pairs only has only one EC number -- EC 3.4.24.81 for the former pair and and EC 3.4.24.7 for the latter pair.

Do you know roughly how many EC number articles of that form you produced? Based on the templated nature of those EC number articles, it looks like you might have created them through an automated process. Would it be possible for you to check where the articles you've created are redundant with existing Gene Wiki articles?

I think a relatively safe criterion for "redundancy" would be when one of the articles you created has the the 'EC_number' value in its 'Infobox enzyme' template as another Wikipedia article, and that other Wikipedia article has only one EC_number value. The list of articles that use Infobox enzyme is available at Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:Infobox_enzyme. Regards, Emw (talk) 21:38, 22 June 2013 (UTC)

Looking closer at those EC articles of yours, it seems you've got a way to detect which Wikipedia articles are likely redundant. The 'See also' articles listed in many of those EC articles is redundant. For example, Pappalysin-1 lists Pregnancy-associated plasma protein A in its 'See also' shown; the former seems like it should be merged into the latter. So checking the 'See also' article might be a simpler way to detect these redundancies. Emw (talk) 22:27, 22 June 2013 (UTC)

Monitored short pagesEdit

Hi. I wondered if you could direct me to some information about what this is and why we use it? Thanks --Dweller (talk) 12:35, 24 December 2015 (UTC)

Hi. I noticed that since Dweller asked that question, you have edited nearly 4,000 articles with the edit summary "‎added Category:Monitored short pages". Not that there's anything wrong with that, but I would also like to know what this is all about. I have read the discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents#Dcirovic, in which you said, "There is an established mechanism for handling short pages, that has been in place since 2008, or so. By adding a template Template:Short pages monitor and a short comment of ~300 bytes, short pages are moved out of the Special:ShortPages list, and placed into the Category:Monitored short pages." I've seen that before, but I have never understood the theory for what pages should be in the Category:Monitored short pages. It's also not true that adding this template moves a page out of the Special:ShortPages list. Every article, even the largest article in English Wikipedia, is listed on the Special:ShortPages list, as can be seen by largest articles. While the "next nnn" link is disabled if the 10000th smallest page, or larger, is displayed, the list keeps on going all the way to the end. And articles that you recently added to Category:Monitored short pages are on the list as well, as can be seen by 479–482 byte articles, which includes, among others, Brofeldt and Wang Ye, which you recently added to Category:Monitored short pages. —Anomalocaris (talk) 06:23, 25 December 2015 (UTC)

Hi. You edited E20 Norr adding a {{Short pages monitor}} template to a disambiguation page that did not even have an introductory line, viz. "E20 Norr may refer to:". I suggest that the lack of an introductory line means that this page did not meet a "minimum level of quality" and should not have received the {{Short pages monitor}} template. I further suggest that various other violations of the standards at WP:MOSDAB, such as multiple blue links per entry, are serious enough that they also mean that a page does not meet a "minimum level of quality". Please see the edit summary at my edit of E20 Norr for the list of the defects I fixed in this article. I hope I have convinced you that E20 Norr did not meet a minimum level of quality. If you wish to reply, please reply here with [[User:Anomalocaris]] or a {{Reply to}} template to notify me that you have replied. Cheers! —Anomalocaris (talk) 22:57, 25 December 2015 (UTC)

G1 speedy deletion tagEdit

Hi!
I saw that you tagged the page Dylan hagen for speedy deletion under WP:G1, "patent nonsense". Note that the G1 criterion explicitly does not cover "coherent non-English material", which that page was (coherent Dutch). If you're unsure whether something is gibberish or a foreign language, you can usually run it through Google Translate and find out. I also noticed that you didn't notify the page's creator, which is also strongly recommended. I have changed the tag to {{db-person}} and notified the author. Cheers. Kolbasz (talk) 19:57, 20 December 2015 (UTC)

Monitored short pagesEdit

Hi again. At Template talk:Short pages monitor, User:Gurch wrote that this template "only needs to be used on pages smaller than about 120 characters". Also, Template:Long comment says, "Use {{subst:long comment}} on very short articles (smaller than about 120 characters) which are legitimately that short, for example very short disambiguation pages or articles consisting only of {{wiktionary redirect}}." Therefore, I believe that it is incorrect to place articles in Category:Monitored short pages if they are longer than about 120 characters. Also, as I have said before, I believe that, whatever the merits may be of placing an article in that category, it is far, far more useful to edit the article to comply with Wikipedia standards. Please reply here, not on my talk page, with [[User:Anomalocaris]] or a {{Reply to}} template to notify me that you have done so. Cheers! —Anomalocaris (talk) 10:09, 27 December 2015 (UTC)

User:Anomalocaris Hi. The 120-character lower limit is likely to be too low. The pages are routinely labeled by various information massages that contribute to their size, without increasing actual data content. Also, a portion of the space is often taken by auxiliary components, such as categories in case of non-disambiguation pages. A more pragmatic choice of the lower boundary would be in the range of 200-250 characters.
I do not plan on spending much more time on this task, other than to occasionally trim the very top of the Short Pages report. --Dcirovic (talk) 18:45, 27 December 2015 (UTC)
I came here for the same reason, as you have been adding the long comment template to dozens (or hundreds) of pages. If there is a +- 120 character limit, then it shouldn't be added. Right now it's confusing if you're adding it, where others will remove it again. If you feel that limit should be raised, then please raise the issue at the appropriate place so that there is a clear guideline. But as far as I can see now, the guideline is roughly 120 characters (about two lines of text). --Midas02 (talk) 18:44, 28 December 2015 (UTC)
Midas02: Actually, over 39,000 pages!
Dcirovic: Sorry for editing in your archive, but this seemed like the logical place to make the comment. That's all I have to say, but should anyone wish to continue this discussion, let's start a new thread not in this archive. —Anomalocaris (talk) 09:15, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

Enzyme navboxesEdit

Hi. Thanks for adding navboxes to enyzme articles. However I think the {{Oxidoreductases}} (EC 1.1) is too broad and large to be used in most enzyme articles. It would be more effective to use one of the EC 1.1.x navboxes, for example {{Alcohol oxidoreductases}} (EC 1.1.1). Also each of the ECx.x.x navboxes contains a footer with links to the higher level enzyme articles. Hence there should be no need to include the {{enzyme}} infobox navbox in these articles. Cheers. Boghog (talk) 09:24, 30 December 2015 (UTC)

Hi Boghog. I agree with your first point. Those replacements will be done shortly.
In your second point, you are probably referring to the {{enzymes}} template (the {{enzyme}} is the box that goes the right hand side). I like the {{enzymes}} template because it gives a nice high level overview of the field, along with direct links to the full lists. That is much easier to follow than the overcrowded footer, so my preference would be to retain it. --Dcirovic (talk) 10:29, 30 December 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the agreement on more specific navboxes. My apologizes, but orginal post above had a typo. I meant the {{enzyme}} navbox that is normally placed at the bottom, not a infobox or sidebar. I can live with the {{enzyme}} infobox, but I do think it is redundant because of the footer information contained in the EC navboxes . Boghog (talk) 10:46, 30 December 2015 (UTC)
I think I agree with Boghog. Adding {{enzymes}} to all those articles should probably have been discussed first, e.g. on WP:MCB. Most articles already have a navbox more specifically aimed at that group of enzymes. JFW | T@lk 09:59, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

Feature – Ebola articlesEdit

 
Electron micrograph of an Ebola virus virion

During August we have translated Disease and it is now live in more than 60 different languages! To help us focus on African languages Rubric has donated a large number of articles in languages we haven't previously reached–so a shout out them, and Ian Henderson from Rubric who's joined us here at Wikipedia. We're very happy for our continued collaboration with both Rubric and Translators without Borders!

Just some of our over 60 translations:
New roles and guides!

At Wikimania there were so many enthusiastic people jumping at the chance to help out the Medical Translation Project, but unfortunately not all of them knew how to get started. That is why we've been spending considerable time writing and improving guides! They are finally live, and you can find them at our home-page!

New sign up page!

We're proud to announce a new sign up page at WP:MTSIGNUP! The old page was getting cluttered and didn't allow you to speficy a role. The new page should be easier to sign up to, and easier to navigate so that we can reach you when you're needed!

Style guides for translations

Translations are of both full articles and shorter articles continues. The process where short articles are chosen for translation hasn't been fully transparent. In the coming months we hope to have a first guide, so that anyone who writes medical or health articles knows how to get their articles to a standard where they can be translated! That's why we're currently working on medical good lede criteria! The idea is to have a similar peer review process to good article nominations, but only for ledes.

Thank you for helping me out yesterday, I just wanted to ask about the cells in the Discography table of Jack Douglass. I did copy the format in the SOURCE editing option, but the cells containing the year of release, the date of the release and the reference has moved one cell to the left. I immediately undid my edits. Please explain. Seelamviraj (talk) 14:17, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

@Seelamviraj: The rows are separated by "|-". The second column in that table contains cells that spans several rows. The second cell for 2014. is entered as |rowspan="5"|2014. If more rows get added for the a given year-segment the corresponding rowspan count would need to be adjusted. You may find more detailed instructions on editing tables in this page. --Dcirovic (talk) 19:37, 2 January 2016 (UTC)
@Dcirovic: Thank you and sorry if I overwhelmed you with my questions. I'm new here.

you removed my recent update I see thatEdit

Let me ask you a question surely you know whats happening in yemen right? I used to look at the man power and the page about the millitary of yemen before the civil war you know what it said 466,000 active 712,000 reserve and then the saudi led intervention started and wikipedia by coninsidence changed it to 71,000 active 66,000 reserve I dont know what type of game this site is playing the only question is are you lowering so you can increase morale for the saudi soldiers and there allies so when they look to see how big is the yemeni millitary it says these small numbers I thought this site was neutral and doesnt side with anyone who can it say on the saudi led intervention page 250,000 security forces baseically meaning millitary of yemen and here saying the yemeni army is less then 100,000 the republican guard alone is 100,000 the army is 4 or 5 times bigger stop taking sides in this conflict and put the correct information or I will report you I dont like lies of coarse youll say give me proof the yemeni millitary is as you say I have 5 articles backing me up so go look up this info and prove to me the millitary of yemen is under 100,000 Kumdano9 (talk) 22:10, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

@Kumdano9: The values 66,700 and 71,200 are listed in the corresponding reference. You are welcome to change those numbers for as long as you also enter the references in support of your entry. --Dcirovic (talk) 22:26, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

False positiveEdit

I see you have reverted my changes. I had made an honest mistake with the year of release of "Valentine's Day is a Lie" but my addition to the table was NOT vandalism and I even included a reference (Jack Douglass). Seelamviraj (talk) 23:16, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

@Dcirovic: Sorry Seelamviraj (talk) 00:06, 3 January 2016 (UTC)
@Dcirovic: I've observed my addition has been put back in the table. Just wanted to confirm if it was you. If you did, then may I proceed to ask ClueBot NG if I can resume with my editing as long as I cite the references? Seelamviraj (talk) 02:21, 3 January 2016 (UTC)
@Seelamviraj: I am not sure how long it takes to process a "False positive" report. If I were you, I would worked on other pages for few days. --Dcirovic (talk) 04:33, 3 January 2016 (UTC)
@Dcirovic: OK, but I wanted to know if you made the "My Music, Your Lyrics (YIAY #18)" addition to the discography table in Jack Douglass.
@Seelamviraj: Yes, I restored your edit.
PS. When the other day I said that it is fine to use {{Reply to| ... }}, I was referring to how you used it on your user page. When you are leaving a message on someones talk page that person automatically gets notified. The {{Reply to| ... }} is needed to ping the user when you write to them on other places, e.g. on your user talk page, an article talk page, etc. --Dcirovic (talk) 16:55, 3 January 2016 (UTC)

Nomination of Cooperative-based graph clustering for deletionEdit

 

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Cooperative-based graph clustering is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Cooperative-based graph clustering until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article.

This is only an obscure (uncited) subtopic of clustering. We still have Cluster analysis for the real thing. HelpUsStopSpam (talk) 21:06, 5 January 2016 (UTC)

Wikidata integrationEdit

Hello Dcirovic,

why did you undo my changes? I think it is much easier to change version and date by a central project like Wikidata.

So all available languages for Diaspora (software) could be changed at once.

Regards Holger

@HolgerFroese: The use of Wikidata has clear advantage. However, the format of the date should be consistent with the rest of the article. --Dcirovic (talk) 18:08, 10 January 2016 (UTC)
@Dcirovic: I see, the date property was deleted by w:it:Utente:Airon90
HolgerFroese (talk)
@HolgerFroese: I am not sure what that user intends to do. A possible way to streamline date formatting would be to split the date property on Wikidata into day, month and year. --Dcirovic (talk) 19:11, 10 January 2016 (UTC)

I'm so lostEdit

Hi Dcirovic! I'm SO lost on this backstage-like world of wiki. Sorry about the mistake you had to rectify. I don't even know how to reply to your comment on my page, that’s why I’m texting to you here. - Anyways. I wanted to ask how I can add an airline to the list of Venezuelan airlines. The one I want to add is Albatros Airlines, but when I tried to do it, it takes me to the page of a turkish one that closed years ago. They both have almost the exact URL except one is in english and the other in spanish (this is the one I want to add) but I have no clue of how to do it properly. Could you help me out? Or who do I talk to? Thanks in advance x


Eliiferrer (talk) 15:17, 13 January 2016 (UTC)

@Eliiferrer: The Wikipedia in English language currently does not have an article about that company. Perhaps you could make one. I have tentatively named it "Albatros Airlines (Venezuela)" in order to distinguish it from its Turkish counterpart. --Dcirovic (talk) 17:05, 13 January 2016 (UTC)

Recent edit to Resistance in German-occupied CzechoslovakiaEdit

Hi Dcirovic. I've indeed removed some content from the page Resistance in German-occupied Czechoslovakia. It was not by mistake and I explained why I did so in the Talk page to this topic Talk:Resistance in German-occupied Czechoslovakia. When I joined wikipedia several years ago, this was the way how to discuss changes.

The reasons for my edit are simple - the bibliography is rubbish and the items I removed are just a review of the main historical research book mentioned as a source. This is not a correct way how a resource to an article should be cited - i.e. to cite one book and three reviews of that book as four diferent sources is very poor practice. The more so when the original book is more a one person's view of the subject than rigorous and balanced description. I intend to re-work the whole page (if time permits) as the article is incomplete, inbalanced and misleading. It has became almost a "sport" thing of few czech historians to defame this period of Czechoslovak history, and while I agree that view of historical events should be critical, it must be also balanced and picured in the historical scope. So when a Czechoslovakian resistance is being evaluated, it should be compared with comparable states (Belgium, Netherlands). In this comparison one can see that the idea of a "little formal resistance" is simply not true.

I also don't agree with the name of the article - both in the Czech and Slovak wikipedia pages this topic is reffered to as as "Czechoslovakian Resitance" (or more precisely "Second Czechoslovakian Resistance"), so I don't see any reason, why it should be different in the english version.

Recent edit to Dandelion WineEdit

Hi! Why is the deletion of the reference to the (second) band better than the proper link to the band's homepage? Otherwise we'd need to discuss whether we'd need to make the Dandelion_Wine_(band) page should be for the Australian or the (older) Canadian band - or a disambiquation page itself. Or how are such conflicts resolved?

@Vtanger: Wikipedia disambiguation pages do not contain external links. You could enter in Dandelion Wine (disambiguation) internal links to (future) pages about those bands, and you could make use of the link to http://www.dandelionwine.ca/ in the corresponding article. -Dcirovic (talk) 22:25, 24 January 2016 (UTC)

Recent change to "One More Chance" by Michael Jackson...Edit

Actually, I am correct in changing "his" to "her." In the following sentence "Janet Jackson also made a version of the song on the album Victory in his single "If" as a B-side."

Janet Jackson had the single titled "If" therefore using "his" is incorrect as this does not refer to Michael Jackson. It is her single.

Kerry Committee ReportEdit

Hi Dcirovic. Not sure of the Wikipedia convention on quotation but a number of formats, like APA (I believe), require brackets for changes of letter-case in quotations. The source cited capitalizes "P" of "payment" because it is given in a list of numerous facts (each of which is capitalized on the first letter) so I believe the article ought to bracket "payment" as "[p]ayment" so as not to alter source material (even if trivially).

@NAS Ohio: I understand your point. The brackets look rather confusing, as if they were a broken external link. Perhaps, the quote could include only the list item, i.e.
The Kerry Committee report found that the Contra drug links included "... Payments to drug traffickers ..." --Dcirovic (talk) 17:47, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

How's this: The Kerry Committee report found that "the Contra links included[,]" amongst other connections, ". . . Payments ..." ? I did not want to unquote "the Contra links include" because it is directly from the report. Again, not sure how you feel about [,] though but that is how the standard formats would do it. Finally I'm torn on a 3-period or 4-period ellipses because, on the one hand, what is omitted are points by author ending in a period like a sentence (hence 4-period ellipses), but on the other hand, none of these points are complete sentences (hence 3-period ellipses). Your call.

@NAS Ohio: This is fine by me. You might want to leave a note on the talk page of the article, in case someone else wants to comment. --Dcirovic (talk) 18:44, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

sr:Lejkvil (Njujork)Edit

Hi, you seem to be most active here, so I'm contacting you here :)

I was editing American settlements on Wikidata and noticed that a page you created, sr:Lejkvil (Njujork), is now a redirect to sr:Livonija (Njujork). That seems wrong since Livonia is a different settlement a few kilometres away. I don't speak Serbian so I don't feel confident editing there, but maybe you think the page and redirects should be restored. If you do decide to restore it, could you add the sitelink to d:Q5969597? Thanks :)

@Nikki: It seems that Lakeville is now part of Livonia, although it is considered as a distinct entity for census purposes. --Dcirovic (talk) 21:15, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
The page you linked is for the town, but the population statistics and FIPS code on sr:Livonija (Njujork) are for the village (Livonia (village), New York). The village doesn't include Lakeville or Livonia Center (sr:Livonija Senter (Njujork)). - Nikki (talk) 13:59, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

Recent edit to Eeny, meeny, miny, moeEdit

Hi Dcirovic,

I hope I am posting this reply in the right place... messaging is not easy to figure out (not sure if you would get notified if I edited my own talk page). I appreciate the vulgarity of the *N* word - however the article is currently factually inaccurate with it replaced by 'whitty'. I saw it as clear vandalism by the prior editor, but would be happy to talk more on the talk page (which has a lot of discussion on this matter in particular). 'whitty' was not ever used from what I can tell and was written as a form of provocation/vandalism. I realize there is a lot of tension around these words - however I hope we can reach a consensus.

Thanks!

Luke FriendEdit

Hello, I edited the entry on Luke Friends page as I am a dedicated fan of his and he has never mentioned in the 3 years of knowing him that this is his favourite sport or sportsman. Where did you get that information?

@Lipsandrouge: Your edit was undone because the sentance seemed to be referenced, and because you left behind a broken heading.

Therefore, the "Personal life" section is removed from the article. --Dcirovic (talk) 20:17, 3 February 2016 (UTC)


Recent edit to Cheshire, ConnecticutEdit

  Hello. I noticed that you recently made a contribution to the Cheshire, Connecticut article that seemed to be a test. Your test worked! However, test edits on live articles disrupt Wikipedia and may confuse readers. If you want more practice editing, the sandbox is the best place to do so. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you! Dcirovic (talk) 17:36, 8 February 2016 (UTC)

Dcirovic, The change that I made was to clarify what I found to be a confusing town motto. perhaps it would have been better to add a new section which describes the motto, but that seems onerous, obtrusive and may confuse readers (I also do not have the requisite knowledge to do so). my change made the phrase "bedding plant" a link to the article about bedding plants. I was interested in Cheshire and their motto is "The bedding plant capital of Connecticut". Well not being a gardener I was confused by the motto, do they have a plant, or factory, that makes bedding? (what an odd thing to celebrate, we love duvets!!) do the plants grow in beds? what does it mean. I felt the most direct answer to that question was by placing a hyperlink within the motto.(Tommyborsh (talk) 19:38, 8 February 2016 (UTC))

@Tommyborsh: Hello. There is nothing wrong with adding that link. However, please note that internal links are normally added using [[ ... ]] syntax. The [ ... ] notation is used for external links, i.e. links to sites other than Wikipedia. --Dcirovic (talk) 20:25, 8 February 2016 (UTC)

Fizz BuzzEdit

Hi Dcirovic. More then happy to discuss. :) I am not sure exactly how or where to post so I am trying here.

This is in regards to Fizz Buzz: The example given above the javascript program is ... 13, 14, Fizz Buzz, 16, 17, ... There is a distinct space between Fizz and Buzz for number 15. As the program stands now it produces FizzBuzz (as in one word, and no space). So the current program does not fulfil the requirements as laid out above, and therefore is incorrect. So either the sample results should then be updated to reflect the lack of the space, or the program should be updated to produce the above result.

Example of the current program running in Nodejs: Fizz 13 14 FizzBuzz 16 17

Recent Edit on Boerboel by 166.172.60.171Edit

I use my boarding school's wifi, so there are a lot of people using the ip address 166.172.60.171, including myself. I do not know who made that vandal edit, but it was not me. I will try to pass the message along to the person who did it (if I figure it out). EDIT: Actually, it turns out I am using my hotspot. So I can't guarantee I'll pass along the message. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Theforgottenfischer (talkcontribs) 20:51, 10 February 2016 (UTC)

Taa languageEdit

Hi!

I saw you reverted my own revert on taa language. I understand what you did, since I was also very doubtful at first when I wrote that. But if you read carefully, the sentence I changed is supposed to be a translation of a taa language sentence.

At first I was confused because the taa language sentence was followed by a word-by-word translation : "give||MPO:4PRO||two||genital:22-P||ASS:3||stench:3||DAT:3PRO||COM:2||fat:22".

After that, the sentence fully translated was : Give them their sandwiches.

Which does not match with the word-by-word translation. I went back in the history of the article, as far back as I could, to the original sentences and tranlations, thinking maybe there had been a vandalism in the word-by-word, and hoping I could restore the original word-by-word translation (thinking that, yes, the taa sentence meant "give them their sandwiches").

But if you go back in the article's history you can see that the original sentence is really about... genitals or something. That's why I changed the sentence to "Give them their stinking genitals with the fat!"...

I do understand that this sentence does not make a lick of sense and... looks weird. But it has been there for years... I don't know if the sentence or translation are a prank or a vandalism so old I found it for years in the article. Or maybe I didn't go sufficiently back in time to find the original sentence.

Can you make heads or tails of this situation?

Thanks a bunch Mnemosyne (talk) 12:52, 11 February 2016 (UTC)

@Euterpia: I do not have access to the literature source that might contain that phrase. Assuming that it is valid, it still does not qualify as a representative example of that language. While in any given language an odd looking phrase could be pulled out of context, such phrases do not merit inclusion into encyclopedia. --Dcirovic (talk) 13:50, 11 February 2016 (UTC)
Then do you think it's okay to delete the full second example in Taa language#Example phrases? The introductory sentence of this section says those phrases were compiled by Anthony Traill (one tof the linguists who studied Taa) but no specific references are given. Your revert was reverted by an IP address. So maybe deleting this dubious sentence would be preferable, to prevent any further confusion or whatever? I don't want to delete anything right away on my own, I'm more familiar with fr.wp as I'm an admin there and only seldom edit the en.wp, I don't want to trample over rules or customs unknowingly.Mnemosyne (talk) 13:54, 16 February 2016 (UTC)

You removed my Dominican editEdit

Hi there Dcirovic. Thanks for reaching out to me. I'm not sure yet how to respond directly so I am posting here. Why did you remove my Dominican edit? In your response to me you indicated you removed it but did not provide any historic, linguistic, logical reason for the change. I am very well read on Dominican history. What is your experience? Often on Wikipedia.org people that seek to remove the truth about how Europeans abused non-Europeans remove such edits. Many articles that I wrote or edited, to remove racist ideologies, have been removed and I have often been blocked for simply trying to end racism on Wikipedia. Often outrageous claims are made about European accomplishments and the same people that flag and block non-racists ignore the obvious violations in the racist articles

@172.56.19.248: Dominican is a disambiguation page. Your addition of the word "Platano" on the top of the page does not improve it. Assuming that you would like to say that there is a type of banana that is known as Dominican, you could make an entry somewhere down the list. --Dcirovic (talk) 13:15, 19 February 2016 (UTC)

Harvey Boulter PageEdit

I started the page yesterday and was busy adding references and links when Dcirovic when this user started deleting my info! I am trying to build the page but cannot do so in a fair manner if he creates havoc. How am I at fault? Surely he must be reprimanded for deleting content that I am busy referencing? I cannot be expected to have it perfect in such a short space of time. Look at the history, I was making good progress until he started deleting and editing.

@Ccboshoff: You have an option to place template {{Under construction}} on the top of the page while you are working on it. --Dcirovic (talk) 16:08, 14 February 2016 (UTC)

Thank you very much for the info. I really appreciate it. I have added the words to the top of the page and will start work on it. Can I undo the changes that he made? When I try undo it I get threats about being removed from Wiki. Really dont understand how this is possible. He is not responding or undoing the changes. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ccboshoff (talkcontribs) 16:23, 14 February 2016 (UTC)

@Ccboshoff: You should not be removing references, unless they are invalid. The {{citation needed}} templates should be replaced by the references. The disputed sections, such as "Legal dispute with 3M" should be discussed on the talk page of that article, and removed only if an agreement is reached. --Dcirovic (talk) 16:35, 14 February 2016 (UTC)

Thank you very much Dcirovic. I am new and still learning. I hope to be very actively involved with Wiki so your advise is appreciated.

OSLEdit

Optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) is a dating method and should be referred to as such. Someone reading an archaeology paper mentioning OSL dates, then going to the disambiguation page looking for what it is, would have no idea that OSL involves ionizing radiation.

John Laurens RevisionEdit

Hi! I just wanted to ask why my good faith edits were reverted in the Laurens article? I know the article has faced a lot of vandalism recently (like, ridiculous amount), but the edits I made to the new section on Laurens sexuality were for clarity and a misleading link. I've read the letter in question, indeed I've studied all of Hamilton's personal letters, and in the case of Hamilton describing his positive qualities (like that fabulous nose...), he's asking Laurens to tell any qualified women about what Hamilton has to offer. The current article text, as I read it, says that he is asking Laurens to tell potential "suitors." In this case, Hamilton would be the suitor; the word exclusively refers to a male. Hence I changed it to the gender neutral word "candidates." On the link removal on the reference to letters: the link takes readers to an article for love letters which is misleading, because it implies the Hamilton-Laurens letter is an undisputed love letter. Unfortunately, there is no scholarly or textual evidence to definitely mark these letters as love letters in the modern sense.

I'm genuinely interested in improving and maintaining the Laurens article, he was a favorite historical figure long before the musical even got workshopped, so I wanted to make the case for these minor edits.

@178.42.79.67: Hi. Your edits were comments that should be placed on the talk page of that article. If you could find couple of minutes to master few basic editing rules, you could easily encorporate that content into the page. --Dcirovic (talk) 20:33, 16 February 2016 (UTC)
@Dcivrovic: Ok, thanks!

LeatherneckEdit

The section regarding Royal Marines at the bottom of the article is frankly just plain wrong. As a former British soldier (note Army not Royal Marines) I have never heard a marine referred to as a "roughneck", Royal Marines generally refer to themselves and one another as "Royals" whilst members of other services generally call them "Bootnecks" i'd imagine stemming from the same reason the USMC are called "Leathernecks"-allegedly due to the wearing of a leather stock to improve posture or alternatively as a guard to prevent sailors from slitting their throats whilst they slept as marines originally acted as a ships' police and were better paid and enjoyed more privileges than sailors and thus were not particularly well liked by them. You can find the relation between a Royal Marine and the term "Bootneck" by means of a simple Google search whilst a similar search for connection between them and the term "Roughneck" returns no such results. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.135.97.100 (talk) 01:59, 17 February 2016 (UTC)

Shades of GreenEdit

I was wondering why you undid my edit to the Kelly Green subsection that added the fact that Cary High School uses the color kelly green?

@DCTransit: Wikipedia receives a large number of edits that are not constructive.

Hi

You left a message for me apparently in February relating an apparent change I made to a page on someone called Huw Merriman. I do not know what you are talking about and am now really concerned what might be happening as I work in a university and am bothered that someone is doing something on my account. I don't actually even know if this is the right place to be asking you this/commenting on this but I tried to follow the directions on the Help: Using talk pages page. How can I find out what was done, apparently in my name? Thanks

The Tin SyndromeEdit

Hi there, you recently left a message for me (markaustin234) in regard to my efforts to restore a photo to the article on The Tin Syndrome. I think you may have misunderstood me. It was not meant to be a test - I was actually trying to get the photo back. If you could take a moment to reread the comment I wrote about this on my own talk page and perhaps reply to me as to why the photo was removed and how to get it back, I would be grateful. There is a grieving family involved here and I am keen to avoid them distress. Thanks and regards, Mark. Markaustin234 (talk) 11:43, 10 March 2016 (UTC)

@Markaustin234: That image was deleted from Commons because: "No permission since 8 February 2016". You should resend the figure to Commons with a valid license. --Dcirovic (talk) 11:54, 10 March 2016 (UTC)

Further to The Tin Syndrome article - I realise you may not have been able to see the comment I posted because I didn't sign correctly with the four tildes. Essentially what I said was that I was the original provider of the photo that was removed. I am an original member of The Tin Syndrome and a fan approached me several years back, asking for a photo for the wikipedia article they were writing. I supplied this photo from my personal collection. It was one of several taken during a photo shoot for the cover of TOM magazine in 1983. The editor of TOM magazine, Gary Steel, commissioned the photos and provided me with the copies. I contacted him again when asked to supply the photo for the wikipedia article and was given his permission to supply it. Please advise if someone has contested this. I could provide another photo if required but this one did suit the purpose well. Unfortunately the timing is bad because one of the band members has just passed away and I am concerned his family will be distressed by the removal of the photo at this time.

Hello Dcirovic,

My first edit was related to punctuation. The original version has two extra commas. Please tell me why you think the original version is correct. If my edit is OK, please bring it back.

My second edit was related to Skoplje/Skopje. English-language Wikipedia uses the Skopje variant (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skopje), Macedonian website URLs also use this variant (http://skopje.gov.mk). While Skopje had many different transliterations/pronounciations throughout history and one of them was indeed Skoplje, the canonical form in English-language Wikipedia at present time is Skopje. Please tell me why you think I am wrong on this. If my edit is OK, please bring it back.

Constant editing of WikipageEdit

Hello. Thank you for your help in reverting the edit on the page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anavryta_Experimental_Lyceum which was very helpful. I notice that constantly user(s) (I have the suspicion that it is the same user, with Dynamic IP) try to remove part of the "history" of the page, I don't know why. How can we prevent that from happening? Jason1998 (talk) 16:14, 12 March 2016 (UTC)

@Jason1998: Users who make edits that are not constructive should be notified (e.g. using test templates), and after they receive three warnings they may get blocked. When a page is frequently vandalized, a page protection request could be made. --Dcirovic (talk) 16:49, 12 March 2016 (UTC)

@Dcirovic Well, technically they cannot be notified on this occasion, since they have Dynamic IPs. Jason1998 (talk) 20:27, 12 March 2016 (UTC)

Your revert on SavarkarEdit

Just fyi, the edit you reverted here was not really vandalism. I don't speak the language, but a little searching based on a hunch shows that the added text translates to something like "freedom fighter" or an analogue thereof. The revert was probably still justified, because that is not a formal honorific, but a little more caution would not go amiss, and using the "Good Faith revert" button is easy.

Why undo the Everest (disambiguation) page...? — 2601:183:4000:D5BD:C870:AA8:FEB0:9B4B (talk) 18:09, 13 March 2016 (UTC)

@2601:183:4000:D5BD:C870:AA8:FEB0:9B4B: The internal links to disambiguation pages are not allowed. People who accidently enter them are normally asked to resolve disambiguities. In the particular case of your edit the link should point to the article about the film. --Dcirovic (talk) 18:14, 13 March 2016 (UTC)

Constant editing of specific WikipageEdit

Today, the Wikipage https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anavryta_Experimental_Lyceum has been changed again by the same dynamic IP. I reverted the edit again. Can you warn the specific IP (78.87.220.52) or do something to prevent this IP from changing the page? (possibly report the IP?) Jason1998 (talk) 18:38, 13 March 2016 (UTC)

@Jason1998: I have already explained the process. The person who rolls back an edit should notify the other party. The simplest way to generate a message is to use test-templates in sequence (e.g. 1st time {{test}}, 2nd time {{test2}}, ... ). After the third message the report could be filed at Wikipedia:Administrator intervention against vandalism. --Dcirovic (talk) 18:37, 13 March 2016 (UTC)

ReversionEdit

Why did you revert my edit? Was Brain Age: Concentration Training really released in the year 20. You might dislike the fact that anonymous users can edit pages, but that doesn't give you free reign to revert pages made by anonymous editors without review. This would be worse than vandalism because it's done under the guise of patrolling. I'm going to assume good faith, so this is all hypothetical.--73.204.121.183 (talk) 15:09, 16 March 2016 (UTC)

I wanted to let you know that one or more of your recent contributions to Ryuta Kawashima has been undone because it did not appear constructive. Does this imply that you actually reviewed the edit? How else would it not appear to be "constructive"? How do you know it didn't appear constructive?--73.204.121.183 (talk) 15:14, 16 March 2016 (UTC)

I don't know what method was used to determine that my edit did not "appear constructive," but it's clearly unreliable, as how would it not appear constructive if someone changed "20" to "2012?"--73.204.121.183 (talk) 15:18, 16 March 2016 (UTC)

This might be excusable if this were a bot account, but the page doesn't say that. It says this is a user page, implying someone is consciously controlling the account. The edit summary for the revert says you used a tool, but if you aren't reviewing each and every edit, there's little advantage to this account over a bot. If that isn't the case, why didn't you review my edit? Did you review my edit and not realize I was replacing the year 20 with the year 2012? Am I wrong? Did that game actually come out in the year 20? What about punctuation? Does that not apply for whatever reason?--73.204.121.183 (talk) 15:23, 16 March 2016 (UTC)

Please refrain from making further hostile remarks and accusations on my talk page
This implies I made any hostile remarks or accusations, which isn't the case. I am assuming good faith. You didn't answer the question whether you even reviewed the edit before you reverted it.--73.204.121.183 (talk) 15:40, 16 March 2016 (UTC)
It's bad enough that you reverted my edit when it was clearly constructive, but you've now implied that I made "hostile remarks or accusations." Which of my remarks were hostile or accusations?--73.204.121.183 (talk) 15:44, 16 March 2016 (UTC)

BuoyancyEdit

When a IP makes an edit that says "Submarines are long and hard and full of sea men", it's pure WP:Vandalism, i.e. a deliberate attempt to damage the encyclopedia. You're not helping the project by calling it a "good-faith edit", because it's not - it's a puerile attempt at sexual innuendo. Surely you've been around long enough to recognise that? --RexxS (talk) 20:25, 18 March 2016 (UTC)

{ {reply to |RexxS}} Thank you for sharing you opinion with me. Unfortunately, on this occasion, I do not agree with you. Since the edit was made using a shared IP address, one cannot state with certainty, whether it was a malicious endeavour, or a random outburst of a mischievous child. --Dcirovic (talk) 20:52, 18 March 2016 (UTC)

Re: March 2016Edit

Hello from an IP address :)

One of your recent edits was a reversion of my revision to Toaster, which I made in good faith, given my understanding of the single word I changed (from "single" to "singe"). I do believe that it is still justified.

Merriam-Webster's dictionary gives the following definition of singe:

to burn superficially or lightly : scorch; especially : to remove the hair, down, or fuzz from usually by passing rapidly over a flame

A much larger definition of single from the same source does not contain any part of this definition.

The source cited on the page for that quotation appears to be a subset of:

The noun's standard meaning -- sliced bread singed by heat, from the Latin torrere, to burn -- is being temporarily overrun by its slang meaning.

The word "single" is emphatically missing from that document.

As I wish to avoid an edit war, I will not revert your contributions, but I will note that the revision that you restored the page to has notable factual inaccuracies and does not faithfully represent the source cited.

Thank you for your time. 2604:6000:1101:E020:39EF:A961:B8D5:2B8E (talk) 17:49, 20 March 2016 (UTC)

Re: Aesop editEdit

Just recently you reverted my edit to the Aesop page. That edit was to the IPA pronunciation of "Aesop" in English, which is EE-sop according to the English pronunciation respelling key. But the IPA pronunciation was listed as /ˈɑːsɒp/, when that would actually indicate the name is pronounced AH-sop, with the AH representing the "a" in "father". That is not the correct pronunciation; the correct pronunciation is EE-sop, or in the IPA, /ˈiːsɒp/. 71.246.155.127 (talk) 14:15, 26 March 2016 (UTC)

Systematic names of enzymesEdit

Thanks for adding the List of enzymes link to the phrase "systematic name" in the enzyme articles! I'm not sure that's the best link, but the only article about systematic naming (as a concept) I could find is Enzyme Commission number. But I'm actually here because while looking I also came across List of EC numbers, and wonder if you have thoughts about merging those two "List of..." articles. DMacks (talk) 01:29, 31 March 2016 (UTC)

{ {reply to| DMacks}} The article Enzyme Commission number is used in the EC number template, which is present in the majority of the enzyme articles.

Water in CaliforniaEdit

Hi!

I'm leaving you a message regarding this message I received from you after making an edit to the page "Water in California" : "Hello. I wanted to let you know that one or more of your recent contributions to Water in California has been undone because it did not appear constructive."

The contribution I made was correcting an improperly written number that is off by three orders of magnitude. The Groundwater section within Water in California cites that 850,000 acre feet of water is stored in California's aquifers. However, this should be 850 million (850,000,000) acre feet of water. I double checked this correction with the source book, and it is in fact, 850 MAF. The problem becomes very apparent as later in the paragraph, where overdraft is cited at 12 MAF, which would be far more than 850,000 acre feet. Therefore, I think the correction is more than appropriate.

Thanks! Tiffnk (talk) 20:24, 11 April 2016 (UTC)

Hi Dcirovic, I made the edit to sacrament ( not logged in, so via my IP address) which you reverted.

My edit was cleaning up the leftover vandalism from two edits by 101.99.29.8 (this one and this one). As you can plainly see, one of the edits was vandalism/unsourced/sandbox-edit, and the other was a partial revert (leaving the two changes that I undid with my edit).

Your edit to revert my mistaken deletion and a question...Edit

Thanks for your help with my page.

I'm relatively new to Wiki articles. I'm trying to revert an error I made to an article I posted. I was wondering if you would give me a hand with something. It may help to take a look at my talk page for David O'Keefe (author).

I tried to begin with a proposed change for David O'Keefe (author) → David O'Keefe (historian) When I created the article, David O'Keefe (Historian) erroneously moved to David O'Keefe (, which was mistakenly moved to David O'Keefe (author), as a temporary move until this error was remedied. Re: KeeferCeltic (talk) 20:47, 17 April 2016 (UTC)

It came up in my talk page discussion with another user that the point of disambiguation for another David O'Keefe who is may not be the primary page for this name for notability reasons. I think trying to build consensus for a move would help.

So the short of it is: David O'Keefe (author) → David O'Keefe as a matter of precedence.

I hope this makes sense.

Hi Dcirovic. Yes, I used the sandbox before copying over to production. This was my first wiki submission. I spoke with Brandon and he took the picture with his camera. Thanks for helping me learn the Wikipedia world. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Joshyates1980 (talkcontribs) 01:53, 28 April 2016 (UTC)

{ {re|Joshyates1980}} You should use "Move" menu option to rename page. That way the page change history gets preserved, as opposed to blanking one page and making a new one. This time, I suppose this is not much of an issue since you just made the page. --Dcirovic (talk) 02:04, 28 April 2016 (UTC)

Please have a look at User talk:80.212.105.111 Regards 80.212.105.111 (talk) 12:27, 25 April 2016 (UTC)

{ {re|80.212.105.111}} The interwiki links should be placed on Wikidata. --Dcirovic (talk) 14:12, 25 April 2016 (UTC)
Too dificult for me AND why didn't you do that instead of reverting a constructive edit with comments "testing"? Was it so difficult to see that this was no "testing"? Possibly a bot may have picked it up and done it properly. I can clearly see why Wikipedia is loosing editors. Thank you. 80.212.105.111 (talk) 15:47, 25 April 2016 (UTC)
{ {re|80.212.105.111}} If I understand you correctly, you do not want to make an effort to learn the most elementary editing conventions, and you demand that other editors volunteer their time on cleaning after you. --Dcirovic (talk) 18:16, 25 April 2016 (UTC)

Welcoming usersEdit

Hey Dcirovic. I saw you welcomed and thanked this IP for his contribution, an unsourced genre change that is generally considered nonconstructive. Please could you, in future, check to see whether edits are constructive before thanking them as this should probably have been a "test edit" welcome. Thanks! Robvanvee 17:55, 25 April 2016 (UTC)

{ {re|Robvanvee}} The starting information about genre was not explicitly sourced. The second reference from that article lists several ganres: "Alternative Metal, Hair Metal, Heavy Metal". Therefore, I am not persuaded by your argument. --Dcirovic (talk) 18:12, 25 April 2016 (UTC)

GangEdit

Hello Dcirovic

With regards to your previous message on an article i edited that you are working on, i was wondering if we could talk privately about the article that you are editing, this is because a number of the statements included are incorrect.

Logged out page changes to the luka stateEdit

Hiya, I made the previous changes to the luka state's page whilst logged out. I'm the bands manager and label representitive. We've decided to prune the content dramatically as it's just not relevent any more.

{ {re|Wallywallyy2k}} I am not sure that the removed content is irrelevant. You should read Wikipedia:Conflict of interest guidance before making further changes to that page. --Dcirovic (talk) 13:13, 27 April 2016 (UTC)

BandidasEdit

I hope this is dcirovic.Sorry I had to delete it(the bandidas). It was an honest mistake. I hope you understand. I also have to mention that you are very kind and cool after the mistake was made.

Inappropriate warningEdit

Your warning re T.C. Harvey was wrong; the editor who blanked the page was the article creator.TheLongTone (talk) 13:55, 27 April 2016 (UTC)

Armidale High SchoolEdit

User "KjellKnable" made a malicous edit towards one of the students at the school. I'd appreciate it if my edits and Kjell's edit were deleted so thata no student would be ridiculed.

Reverted edit on Champions League T20 pageEdit

Hello,

you recently reverted a change I made on the Champions League T20 page. I think you were wrong to do so. The Criticism section was not worth having, was unsourced, and biased. I gave my reasons for removing it in the talk section.

I am going to remove the section again. If you think the section is worth keeping and meets Wikipedia guidelines, please try and argue its case in the page's talk section. 146.162.241.241 (talk) 14:51, 28 April 2016 (UTC)

Iden Green (near Benenden)Edit

Hi, thanks for your input. I made Iden Green (near Benenden a divert page, because the copy now exists at [Iden Green]]. Hope this is ok? VixenNo9No9 (talk) 14:39, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

{ {re|VixenNo9No9}} You have redirected "Iden Green (near Benenden)" to itself, instead "Iden Green". --Dcirovic (talk) 14:44, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

Hi, yes. the page should be called just Iden Green as this is the name of the village. there is also a very small hamlet (just 3 or 4 houses) called iden green, but this should be names Iden Green (near Goudhurst) as it is a tiny place. Hope I've done this right and understood correctly? VixenNo9No9 (talk) 14:48, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

Revert [5]Edit

Hey, just wanted to let you know [6] was a valid edit - usually there's no need to include the name in a taxobox template unless the name is different from the systematic name - if no name is included, the taxobox italicizes the article title by default, which the IP editor explained.

Receptive Fields EditEdit

Hi there Dcirovic. I was checking the page on receptive fields (I am currently teaching neural networks and needed to point my students to the resource). I found that the 'receptive field theory' addition appeared as a self-serving self-referenced set of highly mathematized content that did not add to the understanding of what is a receptive field. Moreover, there has been extensive literature on the topic, starkly neglected by those edits. Rather than give the false impression to the potential reader that this is fundamental, I decided to edit it out.

As it is, it is heavily biased and heavily overlooks a rich literature. I want to edit a more complete version, but as I was in the train as i made the edit, and i kept my explanations minimal. Indeed, my edits could be much better reasoned! In the near future I will introduce myself as an editor for neuroscience, as i noticed they are many pages needing attention. MNegrello (talk) 12:52, 2 May 2016 (UTC)

{ {re|MNegrello}} I do no share your view. The 'receptive field theory' and 'Computational theory of auditory receptive fields' sections are not too mathematical and they are not out of place. These sections are relevant and should remain in the article. I agree that those topics could be outlined in much greater detail in separate articles, however, that does not preclude the need for having concise summaries on the "Receptive field" page. You could address your concern with the emphasis of the articles by expanding it, without deletion of useful content. --Dcirovic (talk) 15:20, 2 May 2016 (UTC)
{ {re|MNegrello}} I maintain that the 'useful content' is a partial view that is not of broad interest in neuroscience and does not advance understanding of receptive fields in any relevant dimension (this comes from a computational neuroscientist). For relevant mathematical concepts compare with scholarpedia's page for receptive fields, for example. I will recommend that the article needs multiple kinds of attention.

Zach stoneEdit

I am Zach stone and those statements are not what defines me as a person, I ask that you please remove them and allow me to provide more accurate information as to who I am as a person Stone1990zach (talk) 19:04, 2 May 2016 (UTC)

{ {re|Stone1990zach}} This article should definitely be expanded. While doing that, the referenced statements should not be removed. Also, please note that writing about yourself is a bad practice, see Wikipedia:Conflict of interest. --Dcirovic (talk) 19:17, 2 May 2016 (UTC)

No they need to be removed this information has nothing to do with what I do now. Stone1990zach (talk) 22:35, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

Rigger (Industrial)Edit

You reverted my changes.

I blanked out the sections about etymology of the word Rigger and the description because it was not sourced and is incorrect. I don't have the time to put together an article about Rigging to substitute that information with, are you suggesting that Wikipedia would rather have incorrect information instead of no information at all? — Preceding unsigned Etherwar (talk) 20:04, 2 May 2016 (UTC)comment added by 96.83.54.81 (talk) 19:51, 2 May 2016 (UTC)

{ {re|96.83.54.81}} It is true that those sections lack inline reference, and there is a possibility that some of it is wrong. However, in this case, I do not see the need for removal. The warning info box is sufficient. --Dcirovic (talk) 20:12, 2 May 2016 (UTC)
@Dcirovic: "All material in Wikipedia mainspace, including everything in articles, lists and captions, must be verifiable. All quotations, and any material whose verifiability has been challenged or is likely to be challenged, must include an inline citation that directly supports the material. Any material that needs a source but does not have one may be removed." - Wikipedia:Verifiability
According to the above information from the foundation it seems that the information should be able to be removed. Can you please explain why my previous challenge to the information is not sufficient to warrant its removal? --Etherwar (talk) 17:31, 3 May 2016 (UTC)
{ {re|Etherwar}} You are taking this far too literally. It is meaningful to remove speculative, far-fetched, promotional, malicious, deceiving and alike content. On the other hand, removing easily verifiable material, does not benefit the project. For example, it took me a couple of seconds to locate this link, which confirms most of the content that you are content on removing. --Dcirovic (talk) 18:03, 3 May 2016 (UTC)
@Dcirovic: I'm not trying to remove useful information. There is no mention of the etymology of the term Rigger on that site, and I have searched online for far more than couple of seconds trying to verify that information. Because it was posted on wikipedia, I gave the information some credence. I have replaced the description section with one that, in my opinion, accurately expresses what an Industrial Rigger is and does. If that's what you're basing your couple-of-seconds research confirmation on, then thank you! The previous information under that heading was either highly esoteric or misinformed, and as such I believe it should have been removed rather than perpetuate false information. --Etherwar (talk) 18:26, 3 May 2016 (UTC)
{ {re|Etherwar}} These links could help with etymology: [7], [8], [9], [10], [11], while this one tentatively useful for the description section: [12]. --Dcirovic (talk) 18:41, 3 May 2016 (UTC)
@Dcirovic: I appreciate your assistance in tracking down some links that mention Etymology and Rigger. Unfortunately, none of your provided links would be suitable for the citation of the information currently residing under the Etymology heading on the Rigger (industry) page. I am content to leave that information as-is, since I have corrected the overly narrow description section and I am uncertain and unfamiliar with the necessary reasoning for deleting content on Wikipedia. Again, thank you for your assistance. --Etherwar (talk) 19:33, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

Question from a new userEdit

Hello. I have recently received on my Talk Page an advisory for you. Thanks for taking time to writing it. I am very new to wikipedia and i didn't know about sandbox and also I didn't know that I will affect everyone if i'll just delete my test on that article. I am planning to write a very elaborated article about ROvACC which is a non-profit organization and it's part of VATSIM Network . I was assigned by ROvACC director to write a Wikipedia page. I am sorry for any discomfort made.

About the title, I have a few questions, I did read about reliable sources and I didn't find anything about e-mails. The ROvACC Director is providing me via e-mail any information needed, signed, about the past and present of ROvACC. I just need to know if i can use simply e-mail as a source or attach screen-shots from an e-mail client on the conversation between me and him on Wikipedia topic.

Thanks for reading it and I am waiting for an answear on my talk-page. PanescuStefan (talk) 06:19, 4 May 2016 (UTC)

@PanescuStefan: The personal communication is generally not considered to be a reliable source, see WP:USERGENERATED. You could use that information as a starting point to locate published sources. --Dcirovic (talk) 06:51, 4 May 2016 (UTC)

Robotics Society of IndiaEdit

Hey Dcirovic! Hope you're doing well, I was a little concered about the page called RSI, because it has no 3rd party referencing at all, how can a page exist on Wikipedia without even a SINGLE 3rd party reference? Beats me. Thanks and take care! :) EditorBoring (talk) 16:44, 5 May 2016 (UTC)

@EditorBoring: The page is already labeled as not having references, among others. Your edits did not improve the situation. Reducing the page to a single unreferenced sentence does not make it referenced. --Dcirovic (talk) 16:51, 5 May 2016 (UTC)

But technically, without a single reference, this page is dangerous for Wikipedia, we have no clue if the page is full of untrue information, I think reducing it to 1 single line atleast reduces the risk posed to wikipedia, also, wouldn't it be better if this article was tagged for deletion? — Preceding unsigned comment added by EditorBoring (talkcontribs) 16:53, 5 May 2016 (UTC)

@EditorBoring: If you feel so strongly about it, you should nominate the page for deletion at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion. The content removal is not a solution. --Dcirovic (talk) 16:57, 5 May 2016 (UTC)

Reverted one editEdit

Hello. You have just reverted one of my edits, here, although it was decided by other users to remove an infobox from that article to avoid an edit war. As has been pointed out on the talk page, the infobox attracts a disproportionate amount of nationalist bias and edit-warring. FullertonCA (talk) 16:34, 9 May 2016 (UTC)

@FullertonCA: That was in 2009. Perhaps, after all this time a more productive agreement could be reached. --Dcirovic (talk) 16:47, 9 May 2016 (UTC)
That is highly unlikely, given that the subject of the article is a hot issue among nationalists. Only time will tell if your decision was a good one, but I'm afraid that we will have to remove the infobox again. FullertonCA (talk) 17:16, 9 May 2016 (UTC)

Hello. You have just reverted one of my edits, Incidents at CNL Income Properties parks, although it was cleary valid becuase of the fact that the ride no longer exists. I will now redelete it. 12:12 PM, 10 May 2016 (UTC)

Edit of Thomas Gabriel (composer)Edit

Why do you mean that it did not appear constructive? Because i am "new"? You didn't read the Text like the editor before my edit: Thomas Gabriel is not living in Wiesbaden and he wasn't born in Würzburg. You reversed correct information into wrong information seconds after my edit! Why?

The Picture was on the same Place a version before. Why you reversed it with the reason "it did not appear constructive"? I know the sandbox, i know a lot about wikipedia. I am a german guy like Thomas Gabriel (He is a german composer). Because of the same country i know the facts a bit better than you :)

In relation of the short time frame i suspect, that this edit was reversed by a bot. You can contact me better over IRC Der_Keks @ chat.freenode.net/#wikipedia-de,#wikipedia-en or query

Is it forbidden to correct information because you are here since june 2010? I can't understand that...

--Der Keks (talk) 16:05, 11 May 2016 (UTC)

@Der Keks: Your edit is removed because you removed the infobox. If it contains information that is out of date, you should updated it, and back your edit with references. --Dcirovic (talk) 16:12, 11 May 2016 (UTC)
First, I am not permitted to remove a infobox? Second: You didn't said why you reversed to wrong information. Please read the article and you will see that e.g. he was born in Essen, a German Town in Nordrhein-Westfalen.
Trust me I'm not a newbie but now a bit sour.
Why I have to prove if an information is wrong? The guy before me has to prove that the information are correct and he must set references. I described why i removed the infobox: too few information. In Germany a infobox for musicians is not welcome because there are too few information like here. Another reason is, that the picture is very small in this box. --Der Keks (talk) 16:27, 11 May 2016 (UTC)

MAGNET-The Manufacturing Advocacy and Growth NetworkEdit

Hi. I notice you reverted the blanking of this article because it had removed a speedy tag. That is quite OK, so long as it is the creator of the article that has done it. (The opposite of the usual situation...) When this happens, don't revert - just tag G7 (deletion requested by article creator) as blanking is taken to be a request for deletion. It mightn't seem to matter, but it can be important in situations where salting is being considered. Peridon (talk) 19:25, 12 May 2016 (UTC)

Reversion to Nicolson Institute editEdit

Dear Dcirovic

Thank you for informing me that you 'reverted' my most recent edit (to the Nicolson Institute article) 'because it did not seem constructive'. Allow me to explain the situation. This afternoon my son proudly informed me that he had 'vandalized' the Wikipedia page for his school (the Nicolson Institute). He had deleted the name of his school house (Addison) and had inserted his own name (Anton). I thought that I had better rectify the situation before one of his teachers noticed and thus I reverted it. If you would care to look at the Nicolson's web page, you will see that the correct name of the house in question is in fact Addison and not Anton. Your utterly mindless and very irritating intervention has thus resulted in incorrect information being left in the article in question. Might I suggest that before you fiddle with other people's work on the grounds that it doesn't seem constructive you should at least do a little basic research to see whether their work was, in fact, constructive after all? Duh! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 164.215.104.156 (talk) 23:49, 12 May 2016 (UTC)

Steve Clarke (drummer) editEdit

Hi Dcirovic,

Thank you for your message. Please could you tell me how to make sure my article on Steve Clarke (drummer) does not get removed, as I was very surprised to find that he did not already have an article on Wiki, and thus attempted to create one about him. Your help will be very much appreciated, thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Danielfreeman42 (talkcontribs) 11:49, 13 May 2016 (UTC)

@Danielfreeman42: There is a good chance that this article is going to be retained. The references should be improved, i.e. duplicated and broken ones should be removed, and in addition to those that point to web pages the article would benefit from references to journal articles and books, if possible.

I don't understand why you reverted my edit to Ricky Martin's page where I added that he is a gay Puerto Rican singer, given that he is LGBT. Due to him having been massively popular around the world I felt that the topic of his sexuality should be mentioned early on, especially considering the rarity of LGBT musicians in Puerto Rico and his musical genre. 82.32.148.174 (talk) 17:06, 13 May 2016 (UTC)

Marla MaplesEdit

"best known for her six-year marriage to celebrity businessman." makes no sense. Both "best known for her six-year marriage to a celebrity businessman." and "best known for her six-year marriage to celebrity businessman Donald Trump." do make sense. But "best known for her six-year marriage to a celebrity businessman." will only prompt the question "who?".

Jamie Foxx

You stated that my edit was not constructive but he is credited as Dean "Motherfucker" Jones in the film. Therefore, it should not have been reverted. Refer to the film Horrible Bosses - and look at his character's name. AjayTO (talk) 23:21, 13 May 2016 (UTC)

Alexis TexasEdit

Hi Dcirovic, I was not the one who made changes to Alexis Texas, but I am seeing notifications from you and that the edit made said "she dated Eric Koni". I think this guy might be my neighbor. There is a Comcast wifi hotspot in this area, is it possible that he made the edits but I'm seeing that you removed it -- simply because we might be on the same wifi range? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 50.141.33.36 (talk) 00:43, 14 May 2016 (UTC)

@50.141.33.36: IP addresses are often shared, i.e. someone else might have used that IP few days ago when the edit in question was made. That is less likely to happen, if you work as a named user. --Dcirovic (talk) 00:52, 14 May 2016 (UTC)

AuthorsEdit

Hi, why are you making edits like this? Where there is a single author for the work, |author= is valid, there is no reason to alter them to |authors=. --Redrose64 (talk) 08:05, 14 May 2016 (UTC)

@Redrose64: I would like to reduce the number of articles in Category:CS1 maint: Multiple names: authors list. Most of them are placed in there because |author= is assigned a list of people. The template syntax supports the use of |authors= regardless of the number of authors. I agree with you that for a single author |author= is valid. However, the automation would be somewhat tedious. --Dcirovic (talk) 08:29, 14 May 2016 (UTC)
There has been a discussion on this matter at Help talk:Citation Style 1#Multiple authors, which goes back several weeks, where I do not see any consensus for the kind of edits that you are making. Furthermore, your editing rate (one every five seconds) is twice as fast as a bot would be permitted to work at. Please cease these edits, file a WP:BRFA, and get approval before continuing. --Redrose64 (talk) 08:34, 14 May 2016 (UTC)
@Redrose64: Not a problem. --Dcirovic (talk) 08:37, 14 May 2016 (UTC)
Note that in your haste you're making edits such as [14] and [15] which don't actually fix anything (pages were still in the CS1 maint cat due to other citations, not the ones you edited), but just hide the single corporate author from the metadata by changing |author= to |authors= - Evad37 [talk] 08:51, 14 May 2016 (UTC)

You have made approximately 3500 edits like this. Please revert them all. Now would be the best time to do that while most of your edits are still current. —Trappist the monk (talk) 09:07, 14 May 2016 (UTC)

I think that on balance it's a positive move to change |author= to |authors= if, and only if, more than one name is listed as the value of the parameter. But it's unhelpful to make this change when there is only one author, whether a person or an organization, and all such changes should be reverted. This requires a lot of checking, unfortunately. Peter coxhead (talk) 12:59, 14 May 2016 (UTC)

I will replace |authors= with |author= in the references having single author. That will be done in all articles that I recently edited. --Dcirovic (talk) 16:06, 14 May 2016 (UTC)

That is inadequate. You should revert your edits. |authors= does not include author information in the template's metadata. Even though malformed, it is better to have some author metadata than none at all. For the time being, |authors= and its aliases should be reserved for multiple author names that also include role information; 'Jon Smythe (director); Bob Roberts (producer)' and the like. Please just revert.

Zachysnykiv Ukrainy (Kharkiv Metro)Edit

Hello, I use National standard, adopted Ukrainian Commission for Legal Terminology (UKPPT) in 1996 and RESOLUTION OF THE CABINET OF MINISTERS OF UKRAINE dated 27 January 2010 g. № 55 "About harmonization of transliteration of Ukrainian alphabet in Latin." (http://zakon4.rada.gov.ua/laws/show/55-2010-п) In international practice used for transliteration of Ukrainian names of geographical objects - in use at the UN.

To view the correct transliteration of Ukrainian names of toponymic objects you can use an online transliteration words in Ukrainian Latin name on the site: http://translit.kh.ua/?geo or http://www.slovnyk.ua/services/translit.php

Accordingly, the name of the Ukrainian underground station "Захисників України" transliterated as "Zakhysnykiv Ukrainy", and the metro station "Армійська" as "Armiiska".

Dog FoodEdit

Hi; You just reverted an edit I made to Dog food. I see your message here: User_talk:199.116.174.120 You said my edit "did not appear constructive". I believe the edit was indeed constructive, since the title of the target article, Eating your own dog food, is truly the common and proper term for the phenomenon, not "dogfooding". What is the objection? Is there some compelling reason we should use some title other than the article's proper title in this link? Is "Eating your own dog food" considered too long for a link in a disambig line? Even if the improvement is very minor -- and I certainly can't argue otherwise -- it's still an improvement. What's to be gained by reverting? I think you'd have to be able to argue that reverting an edit is constructive! Cheers, 199.116.174.120 (talk) 22:39, 19 May 2016 (UTC)

Can we talk about Huggle?Edit

Hi Dcirovic. I’m reaching out because our logs tell us you’re a highly active Huggle user (top 20, actually). The Wikimedia Collaboration Team is researching a project that we hope will be useful to people who use Huggle and others engaged in edit-review and anti-vandalism. Using artificial intelligence programming (in ORES) and other means, we believe we can create feeds of Recent Changes that are better tailored to the type of work you do, helping you to be more effective and efficient. (The technology will have other benefits as well, which we can talk about.)

We're in the early stages of planning this and want to speak with people like yourself to better understand your work, goals and issues. If you’re interested in helping, I’d like to set up a time to meet by video conference, so that you can explain and demonstrate (via screensharing) some of your workflows, and we can ask and answer any questions.

To participate, please email the following information to me, jmatazzoni wikimedia.org, or send it to designresearch wikimedia.org:

Hi. I appreciate that under usual circumstances, a wholesale deletion of a page's contents should be reverted as you did, but these are not normal circumstances. Please review the page history and edit comments at Soarin', the other contributions of Ness Playz MC (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log), and the comments at that user's talk page. Deleting the content at Soarin' Around The World was Ness Playz MC (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log)'s way of concurring instead of re-reverting. I have subsequently nominated Soarin' Around The World for CSD per G7.

Page blankingEdit

In re: ESSA - Sport Betting Integrity Body: When an editor's new page is tagged for deletion, they often react by blanking the page. It is common in this case to accept this page blanking as the editor's acceptance of the speedy deletion message (i.e. "Oops, I didn't know that would break the rules. Let me take that back.") and rather than undo the blanking, to mark the page with {{tl:db-author}} and just allow the page to be deleted. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 15:58, 23 May 2016 (UTC)

Porsha FergusonEdit

Hi Dcirovic,

This is Porsha Ferguson. I received a message about my Wikipedia being deleted. I was wondering what is the article or production is it saying that would cause the deletion? Please contact me at your earliest convince?

{ {re|2602:306:8B8A:4650:FCB4:A694:240A:7699}} Perhaps, you could talk about it with the editor who nominated that article for deletion. --Dcirovic (talk) 16:21, 30 May 2016 (UTC)

One person into twoEdit

Your 'cleanup' script is making a mess of author names that have 'Jr.' in them, thinking that there are two authors there when there are really just one. See multiple instances of E. J.

Koala editEdit

In this edit, you inserted over 900 characters, yet you marked it as a minor edit. I realise that you were just adding some parameter names but I'm sorry, there is no way you can justify calling an edit of this magnitude "minor". Please be more careful in future. - 17:39, 1 June 2016 (UTC)

Turkish populationEdit

Hi Dcirovic, I removed the bibliography list because all the citations are now in the References and notes. I placed the remainder of the bibliography, which is not cited at all in the article, on the Talk:Turkish population page. It seems pointless to have a bibliography that does not correspond to footnotes. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 109.145.21.207 (talk) 20:53, 1 June 2016 (UTC)

{ {re|109.145.21.207}} Most of those references seem to be closely related to the topic and potentially useful. Such references are usually retained in a section titled "Further reading". --Dcirovic (talk) 21:16, 1 June 2016 (UTC)
I do not object to a "further reading" heading. Perhaps you should change it to that as it clearly isn't suitable as a bibliography. Best.

AuthorsEdit

Hi. When you're changing multiple authors names in a single author field into multiple author fields, if the original text had "and" or an ampersand (&) in it, could you please add the field "lastauthoramp=yes" so the new reference will duplicate the text of the old one as closely as possible? It would be appreciated. BMK (talk) 23:54, 1 June 2016 (UTC)

{ {re|Beyond My Ken}} The addition of that parameter seems to generate an error, eg: ref>Georgiev, V.; Milovanov, P. (2001). "Volcanism in the Momchilgrad Volcanotectonic Depression".

VauthorsEdit

Hi, Dcirovic, I noticed your activity on various articles, cleaning up citations especially, and I certainly appreciate it! But some of the changes (from the "authors" parameter to "vauthors") are creating Vancouver-style cite errors. I don't know what it's like working with AWB, but if you could take a second to make sure those errors don't show up in the final version of each article, it would save time for everyone. Thanks! — Gorthian (talk) 01:33, 2 June 2016 (UTC)

page and pagesEdit

Hi and thanks for your attention to toilet. I had added some references, and you changed something inside. I have a feeling that I have not quite grasped how to format references in the ideal way, and I wonder if you can advise. The ref template for books has a field for "page" and one for "pages". I took that to mean that the former is for the exact location of the information I am adding, and the latter indicates the length of the book. But you've compressed both the numbers into one field. I don't think this is right, but I'm not sure what the right thing is. Any ideas? Carbon Caryatid (talk) 16:01, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

@Carbon Caryatid: If you use both fields, an error gets generated. It is reported in red, next to the reference. The length of the book should not be included. The field 'pages' allows you to list individual pages and ranges of pages. They are normally separated by comma. --Dcirovic (talk) 16:07, 3 June 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for your prompt and informative reply. So if I am adding facts from only one page, then I should use the "page" field; and if I am adding from multiple pages, the "pages" field? I'll amend toilet accordingly. Carbon Caryatid (talk) 16:12, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

VauthorsEdit

Hi. Thanks for replacing the deprecated |author= parameter. I noticed however that you have stopped replacing |author= with |vauthors=, presumably because of the occasional errors this replacement was causing. The problem of replacing |author= with |authorn= is that it often changes the citation style. I would gladly monitor and fix any Category:CS1 errors: Vancouver style myself if you would resume using |vauthors=. Thanks. Boghog (talk) 21:33, 5 June 2016 (UTC)

{ {re|Boghog}} I did rearrange the code, so that vauthors had lower precedence. I just restored the prior state, upon your request. --Dcirovic (talk) 21:44, 5 June 2016 (UTC)

recent AWB editsEdit

Hi Dcirovic - you recently ran AWB on a number of Spanish conquest-related articles: Spanish conquest of Petén FA, Spanish conquest of Chiapas GA and Spanish conquest of the Maya GA. In doing so, you broke single authors into multiple authors where Spanish naming conventions were used e.g. "author=Laporte Molina, Juan Pedro" (a single author with paternal and maternal surname) was broken into "author1=Laporte Molina |author2=Juan Pedro" instead of "author1=Laporte Molina, Juan Pedro". Although AWB edits are on the whole helpful, they do need to be checked before saving. Spanish conquest of the Maya was particularly badly affected. Simon Burchell (talk) 09:30, 6 June 2016 (UTC)

@Simon Burchell: Thank you for writing to me. It is rather unfortunate that Spanish naming convention mandates use of comma within names. That character, along with semi column, is used as a separator in the vast majority of other names. I have made sure that the pages listed in your message are not any longer in Category:CS1 maint: Multiple names: authors list. --Dcirovic (talk) 14:42, 6 June 2016 (UTC)
OK, thanks. Simon Burchell (talk) 14:50, 6 June 2016 (UTC)

I've also seen false positives in your separating authors work. [20] (the second one) and there was another that you thought The Sacramento Bee was an author. Sorry I can't find it now. - Mnnlaxer | talk | stalk 22:12, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

Regarding the situation on the saltwater crocodile articleEdit

Hello, hope this message finds you well. There has been a vandalism issue on this page, therefore has gone through a reporting process and reverted back by a fellow editor to the last version by me to filter out all the vandalism.

You are welcome to make ADW edits according to this last version of the article since all the necessary sources are available at the moment. Berkserker (talk) 22:00, 6 June 2016 (UTC)

CLosed AfDsEdit

Closed AfD discussions must not be edited, and other editor's comments should not be edited - it's quite likely that the editor concerned was making a point by introducing deliberate mis-spellings. I've reverted your edit. Please take more care in your use of AWB. Thanks. PamD 07:41, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

@PamD: I know that. The spelling correction was unintentional. My objective was to correct the references, so that the page ceases to be listed in Category:CS1 maint: Multiple names: authors list.--Dcirovic (talk) 07:48, 7 June 2016 (UTC)
Then that category should be fixed so that it doesn't include pages which mustn't be edited, like closed AfDs. Editing those creates noise on a lot of people's watchlists, apart from anything else. It doesn't matter if a closed discussion has a mildly incorrectly formatted ref. Just don't edit those pages. And if you're unintentionally correcting spellling I hope you're taking care not to "correct" spellings inside quotes, media titles, etc. PamD 07:54, 7 June 2016 (UTC)
At the very least, please be more accurate in your edit summary message. In the examples I just looked at, your edit summaries do not reflect your edits, and if memory serves, when doing automated editing, that's a quick way to get an indefinite block to prevent further disruption. - jc37 08:48, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

do not use vauthorsEdit

{ {re|AManWithNoPlan}} There are a number of editors who insist on 'vauthors'. Their argument is that it preserves formatting style. You should probably pose your question at Help talk:Citation Style 1. Should you succeed in reaching consensus for not using 'vauthors', it would be quite simple to replace it with alternative notation. --Dcirovic (talk) 14:42, 9 June 2016 (UTC)

I'm really confusedEdit

Heyy there. I noticed that you reverted this page because it was an "unexplained removal of content." However, the user who created the page before has made the same action, and I reckon the anon was his. Based on history, it looks like the user doesn't want the page deleted, so I thought that subsequent blankings were vandalism or blanking out on the page, so I've reverted the edits with warnings. I thought reverting bad faith edits could bypass 3RR, but I guess not because I got warned by another user. After my warning, I said I would take full blame for the situation, removed the warnings, and left another message to which the user didn't respond (again). Could you clarify what I'm doing wrong here? Thanks. 3primetime3 (talk) 06:16, 16 June 2016 (UTC)

{ {re|3primetime3}} That page is a duplicate of Football Federation of Cambodia, so I just nominated it for deletion. When the editor who created the page blanks it, that is normally understood to be a request for deletion, and such page should be labeled as 'g7' deletion request. --Dcirovic (talk) 06:29, 16 June 2016 (UTC)
Okay, I see you've marked it for deletion again. The user blanked it before and it was marked by deletion here and I had no idea how to react. It doesn't look like he wanted it deleted. 3RR is always a problem for me. It's edits like these that get me into trouble, and I need to be cautious. I've also taken care of any noticeable vandalism while you were looking into this. I thank you. Happy editing! 3primetime3 (talk) 06:32, 16 June 2016 (UTC)

Authors, againEdit

Further to this notice (now archived at User talk:Dcirovic/Archive 1#Authors and also referred to in this discussion - where was it agreed that you could resume making edits like that, specifically, changing |author= to |authors=? Did you file a WP:BRFA, or was there agreement at Help talk:Citation Style 1? --Redrose64 (talk) 14:35, 14 July 2016 (UTC)

@Redrose64: What seems to be the problem? I am not changing |author= parameters containing single author name. I had no need to file WP:BRFA, because all changes are done manually.--Dcirovic (talk) 16:15, 14 July 2016 (UTC)
Without commenting on whether or not the edits are appropriate, see WP:MEATBOT. Not saying it applies here, but it could. Headbomb {talk / contribs / physics / books} 16:58, 14 July 2016 (UTC)
The problem is that you were asked not to change |author= to |authors=. You are now doing exactly what you were asked not to do. --Redrose64 (talk) 18:13, 14 July 2016 (UTC)
@Redrose64: That is not true. Nobody has ever requested that multiple authors should remain in |author= parameter. --Dcirovic (talk) 18:19, 14 July 2016 (UTC)
@Redrose64: Dcirovic is following the documentation for the cite templates, see e.g. Template:Cite book#Authors. How can this be wrong? Peter coxhead (talk) 18:34, 14 July 2016 (UTC)
Trappist the monk (talk · contribs) wrote, and I quote, |authors= does not include author information in the template's metadata. Even though malformed, it is better to have some author metadata than none at all. For the time being, |authors= and its aliases should be reserved for multiple author names that also include role information; 'Jon Smythe (director); Bob Roberts (producer)' and the like. The sort of edits that you have been making (e.g. Camponotus cinctellus) do not involve role information - they are just names. --Redrose64 (talk) 18:58, 14 July 2016 (UTC)
All I can say is that the situation and the documentation seem to be very muddled to me. How can it be right to include a list of authors under |author= but not under |authors=? On any commonsense basis, |author= should be used for a single author and |authors= for a list, unless they are made aliases of one another, which might be sensible. As far as I can see, the problem doesn't lie with Dcirovic but with the state of the templates. Peter coxhead (talk) 09:19, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
Dcirovic is defeating the purpose of Category:CS1 maint: Multiple names: authors list. We are trying to clean up the cite templates by splitting out multiple authors, preferably into last/first pairs like |last1=|first1=|last2=|first2= etc., or where that is not feasible, into single authors like |author1=|author2= etc. By simply altering |author= to |authors= the page is taken out of Category:CS1 maint: Multiple names: authors list but no actual cleanup is performed - the problem is swept out of sight and is then much harder to find and clean up properly. --Redrose64 (talk) 10:53, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
Ah, right, that makes excellent sense now. I do agree that the correct action is to split up lists of authors. It's a pity that your clear explanation isn't more prominent. Peter coxhead (talk) 11:40, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
It's clear to me that the documentation at Template:Cite book#Authors & Category:CS1 maint: Multiple names: authors list prefer |author= over |authors= and why. I don't see how it can be misinterpreted.
It's also clear at User talk:Dcirovic/Archive 1#Authors where Trappist the monk wrote: For the time being, |authors= and its aliases should be reserved for multiple author names that also include role information; 'Jon Smythe (director); Bob Roberts (producer)' and the like. Please just revert..
Fortunately, this situation can be tempered by the fact that authors & editors will get their own tracking category soon.   ~ Tom.Reding (talkdgaf)  12:48, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
@Redrose64 and Tom.Reding: but at Template:Cite_book#Authors it says "author: this parameter is used to hold the complete name of a single author (first and last) or to hold the name of a corporate author. This parameter should never hold the names of more than one author." So on this basis, if |author= has as its value the names of more than one author, this should be fixed. How is a different matter. Peter coxhead (talk) 18:08, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
That's the point: it should be fixed, and not hidden away. --Redrose64 (talk) 08:05, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
If someone's first response is to then change multiple names in |author= to |authors=, when they continue to read Template:Cite_book#Authors they will find
  1. OR [because this follows first:]: for multiple authors, use last1, first1 through lastn, firstn where n is any consecutive number for an unlimited number of authors (each firstn requires a corresponding lastn). See the display parameters to change how many authors are displayed. Aliases: surname1, given1 through surnamen, givenn, or author1 through authorn. Then
  2. authors: Free-form list of author names; use of this parameter is discouraged because it does not contribute to a citation's metadata; not an alias of last.
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).   ~ Tom.Reding (talkdgaf)  13:36, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
I can only repeat that I find the documentation of the template unclear. It says |author= should "never" be used to hold the names of more than one author, whereas the use of |authors= is only "discouraged". Now it may well be that Dcirovic should have understood that changing from |author= to |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! Peter coxhead (talk) 09:15, 17 July 2016 (UTC)

This IP 79.75.127.247 puts false info on artictles of Galkayo and galmudugEdit

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. 75.172.2.253 (talk) 11:29, 30 January 2017 (UTC)

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.

@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. --Dcirovic (talk) 12:56, 18 February 2017 (UTC)

Dab pagesEdit

Hi! Thank you for all your work adding {{short pages monitor}} to brief dab pages. It does not go unnoticed!

I'm here because of your 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! — Gorthian (talk) 20:25, 8 March 2017 (UTC)

Downgrading level 2 articles to level 4Edit

Hi! I noticed you changed some articles from Level 2 to Level 4, such as here. I couldn't find, in the link you provided in your edit summary, [23], discussion about moving these articles from level 2 to level 4. Can you point me to that please? Thank you. Levivich (talk) 16:24, 16 December 2018 (UTC)

@Levivich: Hi. You have a valid point. I was under an impression that enwiki page Wikipedia:Vital articles corresponds to the list of one thousand articles that are considered vital to all languages. That is apparently not the case. The two lists partially differ. Therefore, I will revert my edits shortly. Thank you for drawing my attention to this matter. --Dcirovic (talk) 18:24, 16 December 2018 (UTC)
Thanks, and cheers! Levivich (talk) 18:26, 16 December 2018 (UTC)
