January 2012[change source]

Nuvola apps important.svg You looked like you were in an edit war. Take care, because the three-revert rule does not let users make more than three reverts on a single page in a single day. Any user may still be blocked for edit warring and disruption, even if they haven't broken the three-revert rule. When you disagree with another user, you should first try to talk about changes in order to work together to improve Wikipedia and reach consensus. But, if you decide to continue to disrupt the page, you may be blocked from changing Wikipedia. TBloemink talk 09:11, 7 January 2012 (UTC)

Categories[change source]

I have replied to your message on my talk page. I have created categories for 'Animal phyla' and 'Groups of phyla'. So far, I have not (one exception) created separate categories for phyla with only one general article. They could be grouped together under 'Minor phyla'. I think articles on 'maybe phyla' are tricky. We could put them under phyla all the same. Force-fitting into regular phyla is not a good idea. One just has to go with the current literature, and as I said, the whole of taxonomy is in flux today. Macdonald-ross (talk) 11:32, 7 January 2012 (UTC)

Quick deletion of Katey Sagal[change source]

Ambox warning pn.svg

The page you wrote, Katey Sagal, has been selected for quick deletion. This is because the page was copied from another Wikipedia. If you think this page should be kept, please add {{wait}} below the line {{QD}} and say why on the talk page. If the page is already gone, but you think this was an error, you can ask for it to be undeleted. Auntof6 (talk) 05:23, 20 January 2012 (UTC)

The article was simplified to the point that it dropped down to a 6th grade reading level (starting a bit over 9th, ended at 6.7). That is actually in the middle of our target reading level and 2 1/2 levels improved from where it started. It looks the same, but reads a lot more easily now (barring the random typo/grammar/spelling mistake on conversion). (talk) 11:47, 20 January 2012 (UTC)

Big Airport Weekend[change source]

Thank you for your work on airports It would help the bean counting and would draw more participants if we could all start our edit summaries with "BAW". Again, thanks! (talk) 03:28, 21 January 2012 (UTC)

Actually I just wanted to add the template to the top US airports.. but as I'm not a fan of leaving a page as a one line stub I tossed in a quick intro translation here and there.. and the translations should be easier with a page to link to the commonly used though nowhere near simple terms that crop up.

Category Scottish location map templates[change source]

Just letting you know, I changed the templates in this category to be in Category:Scotland location map templates instead. This kind of category is named with the country name, rather than the nationality. Cheers! --Auntof6 (talk) 21:06, 22 January 2012 (UTC)

Location map[change source]

Could you please take a look at the Virginia location map in Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. I believe the coordinates are correct, but the icon is too high and too much to the right. Perhaps you can double check the template? Thanks, Racepacket (talk) 19:54, 29 January 2012 (UTC)

Readability scanner[change source]

What are you running to get these figures and how do I get me one? Osiris (talk) 06:35, 11 February 2012 (UTC)

I tend to just use this site. (talk) 06:38, 11 February 2012 (UTC)
Sweet, thanks! Osiris (talk) 06:42, 11 February 2012 (UTC)
