Support request with team editing experiment projectEdit

Dear tech ambassadors, instead of spamming the Village Pump of each Wikipedia about my tiny project proposal for researching team editing (see here:, I have decided to leave to your own discretion if the matter is relevant enough to inform a wider audience already. I would appreciate if you could appraise if the Wikipedia community you are more familiar with could have interest in testing group editing "on their own grounds" and with their own guidance. In a nutshell: it consists in editing pages as a group instead of as an individual. This social experiment might involve redefining some aspects of the workflow we are all used to, with the hope of creating a more friendly and collaborative environment since editing under a group umbrella creates less social exposure than traditional "individual editing". I send you this message also as a proof that the Inspire Campaign is already gearing up. As said I would appreciate of *you* just a comment on the talk page/endorsement of my project noting your general perception about the idea. Nothing else. Your contribution helps to shape the future! (which I hope it will be very bright, with colors, and Wikipedia everywhere) Regards from User:Micru on meta.

NHRP detaggablesEdit

So, I ended up here: User:The Anome/NHRP detaggables because of this redirect, Skeleton Cave Massacre Site. I recently created Skeleton Cave (Arizona), and when I was linking other pages to the article, I found the detaggables page. In scanning your list, I came across Work, John, House and Mill Site which I then linked to John Work House and Mill Site which has existed since 2006.

It occurred to me that there may be a number of pages already in existence, but since they are not formatted the same as what's on this page, they aren't being identified as being done. I'm trying to think on how to solve this problem. --evrik (talk)

Dont blind revert without justificationEdit

Im undoing ur vandalism reverts to my editrs to Exclusive economic zone of India. Remember you must justify reverts, cite the policy violation to support your justification, prove intention to collaborate iteratively by offering sugegstion. blind reverts without justification and without informing the other editor is pure vandalism. You could be banned. Refain from such outright vandalism. Respect all editors, including IPs. Thanks. (talk) 13:12, 4 July 2020 (UTC)

Hello! I'm a bit unsure what you find problematic about this. Here are the diffs for the edits in question. As you can see, my revert reverted an edit by my own bot (in effect, a self-revert) and I think the edit record makes it clear what happened, without needing an extra edit comment. The combination of my bot edit and my revert, taken together, left the article exactly as it was before. -- The Anome (talk) 16:39, 4 July 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for the response. In hind sight, I think your bot had also reverted my "see also". I had reinserted those yesterday and all is gine now. Please take a look at bot codes to ensure it reverts only the offending edit and not all the contiguous edits by the same editor. Apologies if I came across harsh, I do not want to make you feel discouraged specially when you are doing a great selfless work. Thanks for your contribution and hardwork. Keep it up. Big salute with a warm hug. Cheers buddy. (talk) 17:10, 5 July 2020 (UTC)
Hello again! If you take a closer look at the diffs, here and here, you can see that the only text added, and then removed in the next edit, was the tag {{coord missing|India}}. It's possible that you had an edit conflict with one or the other edits, but neither added or removed anything but the tag. -- The Anome (talk) 09:46, 8 July 2020 (UTC)

Hi, You recently blocked User talk:AnmunBot, because username contains the suffix "-bot". However this is actually a bot account created for bnwiki (please see bn:ব্যবহারকারী:AnmunBot). The bot owner recently made a usurpation request for this bot account on bnwiki & per Instructions here, bot owner user his bot account to leave a message on the talk page of the target account (user should have been used his main account rather that bot account for this). Because of this block on enwiki, usurpation request was denied on bnwiki. As far i know this bot won't edit on enwiki. Could you please unblock this bot, so that usurpation request can go ahead or should a formal request needed from bot's account/from bot owner? --আফতাবুজ্জামান (talk) 17:18, 12 July 2020 (UTC)

@আফতাবুজ্জামান: I've unblocked the account. Good luck with your efforts. -- The Anome (talk) 19:06, 12 July 2020 (UTC)
Thanks. However i'm still seeing it is blocked. --আফতাবুজ্জামান (talk) 19:18, 12 July 2020 (UTC)
