Editing "top"Edit

I've been here a few years and have never figured out how editors manage to edit the lede as a section "top". How do you do that? SlightSmile 23:48, 28 April 2017 (UTC)

All I remember was that long ago—more than ten years ago, they made this possible, but you had to change something in your settings to enable it. Don't know if that's still how it works. Sorry I couldn't be of more help. Unschool 13:43, 29 April 2017 (UTC)
Hey I've always wondered this too. You can write the {{Help}} template on your talk page, and an experienced editor will be able to assist. Vaselineeeeeeee★★★ 19:26, 11 July 2017 (UTC)
Ya know one day I might just do that. SlightSmile 19:43, 11 July 2017 (UTC)
Do you wanna do it now, I don't see why it needs to wait. Or I'll copy this to my talk page and ask someone there. I mean editing "top" can be very useful if it lets you edit only the lead, especially if it's on larger articles that may take longer to load the whole thing. Thanks. Vaselineeeeeeee★★★ 19:49, 11 July 2017 (UTC)
This help request has been answered. If you need more help, you can ask another question on your talk page, contact the responding user(s) directly on their user talk page, or consider visiting the Teahouse.

In the "gadgets" section of the preferences there is a "Add an [edit] link for the lead section of a page" option. That seems to be what you're looking for. Huon (talk) 20:20, 11 July 2017 (UTC)
Perfect! Vaselineeeeeeee★★★ 20:38, 11 July 2017 (UTC)
Wadya know it works. Thanks. SlightSmile 21:27, 11 July 2017 (UTC)

A subpage of yoursEdit

Regarding: User:Slightsmile/Quotes

I absolutely love them!!!! They are the most fantastic and wonderful quotes! Thank you!!! Bloody brilliant! Anna Frodesiak (talk) 13:10, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

Thank you I appreciate that. I think they're kinda cool if I say so myself. I've noticed cafe anna since I was new here. SlightSmile 13:17, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

Sandwiching text between images and infoboxesEdit

Hi, I'm not sure if you're aware of MOS:SANDWICH, but your edits to Tegenaria domestica resulted in classic sandwiching all over the article. Alternate left and right placement looks good, but only works when the sections are long enough so that the images are vertically far enough away from each other. Peter coxhead (talk) 16:34, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

Sandwiching. Oh great now I'm hungry. SlightSmile 17:02, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for December 16Edit

Malays (ethnic group)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Haji Lane, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Malay (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 10:03, 16 December 2017 (UTC)

Angled cross listed at Redirects for discussionEdit

An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect Angled cross. Since you had some involvement with the Angled cross redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you have not already done so. — Godsy (TALKCONT) 08:53, 24 June 2018 (UTC)

HelloEdit

I see post from you that is not written to me. But I have possible answer.

Saddle shoeEdit

Here is the consensus I'm referring to. Please don't defend lists of random pop culture "sightings." They're junk. 24.7.14.87 (talk) 22:10, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

That wall of words does not constitute consensus. Take it to talk page and get consensus there. I don't know why you're so worried about this. It's a nice clean section and as one editor pointed out it gives the readers a perspective about saddle shoes. There's lots of ways you can make a contribution without being confrontational. I look forward to seeing your good work here. SlightSmile 22:44, 3 October 2018 (UTC)
RFCs are a component of Wikipedia's dispute resolution system and they most certainly do represent editor consensus. WP:CONDD: "Be familiar with policies, guidelines and past discussions." So you can't just dismiss that wall of text; at least read the closing decision at the top of the page. If you're going to urge discussion then I suggest that you not revert the article again without participating in such. I use Wikipedia's search box to find articles needing trivia cleanup and then edit them. This is one article I found. 24.7.14.87 (talk) 04:38, 6 October 2018 (UTC)
Hi, 24.7.14.87. I do hope we can work this out. I must say, by your edits, you certainly do not like those sections. If there is an RfC that broadly prohibits them, please do point it out over at the saddle shoe talk page. Best, Anna Frodesiak (talk) 05:40, 6 October 2018 (UTC)

When did they start being referred to as myths?Edit

In the Adam and Eve article. If they're going to be referred to as "myths," then why not their children Cain, Abel, and Seth? And then also their grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and so on? The descendants of alleged myths are then also, logically, myths as well, no? Shouldn't Wikipedia be consistent? 67.4.76.65 (talk) 02:25, 1 September 2020 (UTC)

Okay we see the term Creation Myth in the Adam and Eve story but it's not Wikipedia's place to refer to any other parts of the Bible as mythological or any other changes we may deem as logical. An encyclopedia describe religions as they are in their original form and not according to the editors' interpretations. SlightSmile 15:04, 1 September 2020 (UTC)
Oh, so just the one part can be referred to as mythological. Makes perfect sense. Not. 67.4.76.65 (talk) 20:47, 1 September 2020 (UTC)
