QuestionEdit

Just curious, why did you revert this edit.? Thanks - wolf 21:34, 30 November 2020 (UTC)

@Thewolfchild: Thanks for asking. I reverted it due to the external link policy, more specifically WP:ELPOINTS rule 2:

With rare exceptions, external links should not be used in the body of an article. Instead, include appropriate external links in an "External links" section at the end of the article, and in the appropriate location within an infobox, if applicable.

Howver, I probably should have turned the link into a ref instead of reverting the edit and warning the user. Again, thank you for your time. Opal|zukor(discuss) 06:29, 1 December 2020 (UTC)

RevisionEdit

Hello. I updated a citation on the article on the Maquis Star Trek page to more accurately reflect the source being cited; the name of the author, the date it was written, the name of the website. This was a simple tidy-up, but it made the citation (to my eye) a lot neater and easier to read? I apologise if I got some code wrong - although it didn't appear wrong to my eye in the published revision - but would it be possible to reinstate the editted information in a format that you deem more fitting? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.19.148.146 (talk) 12:11, 2 December 2020 (UTC)

Hi there User:78.19.148.146, and thanks for asking. After reviewing my reversion, I realised that I had made a mistake. I originally reverted it becuase of the change from "website=them0vieblog.com" to "website=The m0vie blog". After reviewing how {{cite web}} works, I realised my mistake. Your edit should be restored and your UW gone. Many apologies for your time. Opal|zukor(discuss) 12:17, 2 December 2020 (UTC)
Not at all! I'm on your turf. Thank you for your time and your continued work! comment added by 78.19.148.146

Regarding user warning template changesEdit

Hi Opalzukor! I noticed that you recently listed {{uw-vandalism1}} and {{uw-disruptive1}} for merging at TfD. Just a heads up: If you plan to make a possibly breaking change with warning templates, please be sure to notify the tools which use the template, such as Twinkle or RedWarn (as taken from both templates' documentation pages), through their respective talk pages (WT:TW and WT:RW, respectively). Thanks, and happy holidays! Chlod (say hi!) 14:27, 3 December 2020 (UTC)

@Chlod: Many apologies, will do. Happy holidays. Opal|zukor(discuss) 17:26, 3 December 2020 (UTC)

This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay.

PT Perkebunan Nusantara IXEdit

If you think this article is for deletion, please feel free, it was my last article I ever wrote, not worse the time, I think there is no contribution appreciated.

If my article, in which I only intended to summarize a short history and the branches of an important Indonesian state-owned company is worth for delete, so thousand of others are e.g. PT Perusahaan Perkebunan London Sumatra Indonesia

Im still a beginner, but there was zero support, if an article is not sufficient to any rules, others would call this little ..., I am sorry, but seems to me political and personal reasons are more important than simple facts.

I could start a deletion orgy now, but as I stated, not worse the time ...

"Welcome ! I hope you like the place and decide to stay" was just a joke as well as happy new year good bye Joachim Lutz (talk) 14:30, 6 January 2021 (UTC)

@Joachim Lutz: If you would like to contest the deletion of PT Perkebunan Nusantara IX, please remove the PROD tag. Thereafter, I shall take this matter to AfD. Thank you for your time. Opal|zukor(discuss) 22:06, 6 January 2021 (UTC)

Royal Institute of the Architects of IrelandEdit

Hi! I've noticed that the copyvio tag you but on this article hasn't been addressed since - what is the best way of resolving this? I'm afraid that these sort of Irish articles don't get a lot of attention, so the tag could be there a very long time! Smirkybec (talk) 16:35, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

@Smirkybec: That's a reasonable concern. I'm hoping that an admin (or another volunteer) will see the article on WP:Copyright problems, and deal with it from there. However, the page seems to have a massive backlog. The only option seems to be waiting. Opal|zukor(discuss) 10:51, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
Can I ask how you assessed the article? Using Earwig, the results seem to point to strange mirroring site, and not the site of the RIAI. Smirkybec (talk) 20:07, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
@Smirkybec: I see. This is very peculiar. I'm still inclined to believe that the removed content had a promotional phrasing; but when I run the diffs through Earwig, nothing seems to show up. Opal|zukor(discuss) 21:13, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
Oh, I just realised; the only "copyvio" content was 1 or 2 sentences; copied directly. The content is technically still copied, but it is questionable whether it's an actual copyright issue. Thanks for bringing my attention to this matter. Opal|zukor(discuss) 21:15, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
Just hoping to see it resolved :) I've been working on some Irish architecture and architects articles, so I've been linking to this article a bit - it's on my long list of articles to expand and improve at some point! Smirkybec (talk) 21:28, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
