I am curious what tool you are using to make your reference edits? Some of them seem to be getting done so fast its hard to believe they are all being done by hand. -DJSasso (talk) 03:01, 31 January 2018 (UTC)
- Just multiple tabs, I tend to leave the edit window open and move to the next page, and then go back and review the edit a second or third time before saving. That way I tend to catch more errors. It may seem that they are closely time, its just a result of my work flow. Nunabas (talk) 03:50, 31 January 2018 (UTC)
Use of 12-hour clock times in articles[change source]
Hi, the next time you encounter times in articles, please express them in lower-case am/pm format (dots in the case of a.m. and p.m. are optional). This is to ensure consistency with our manual of style. Thanks! Chenzw Talk 15:16, 27 February 2018 (UTC)

template:Greek alphabet sidebar sported wrong links to all individual articles about letters, so it was fixed already anonymously. Simply removal of "uc lc" from template was better, simply because ANY SVG will fit it now. It was fixed already. Qoppa should be renamed to Koppa to match English Wikipedia. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 17:05, 4 December 2018 (UTC)
- Yeah, I know the template had a lot of issues. I tackled one, and left a note on the importing admin's talk page about it being broken. Nunabas (talk) 18:08, 4 December 2018 (UTC)
- For example, Stigma linked to Digamma, Pamphylian Digamma linked to fake letter absent in Unicode, etc... All this was already fixed by anonymous editors. Can you move Qoppa to Koppa (letter) according to w:en:Koppa (letter) at en-wiki? Unicode itself says Koppa, see official pdf, article too primarily says Koppa in itself. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 18:45, 4 December 2018 (UTC)
Hi, Nunabas. Thanks for your recent work in categorizing. However, I noticed that in some cases you put a page into two categories where one category was above the other in the same branch of the category tree. That is called overcategorizing, and should not be done. For example:
- On Perses (Titan), you added Category:Greek gods and goddesses. However, the page was already in Category:Titans, which is a child of the one you added.
- On Clifford Irving, you added Category:American people, Category:American fraudsters, Category:American writers, Category:People from Manhattan, and Category:Writers from New York City, but the first in that list is a parent of all the others. You also added Category:Fraudsters, a parent of Category:American fraudsters. (You also added an incorrect category, Category:American literature, but that is a different issue.)
- On Crosshair, you added Category:Optics and Category:Optical devices, but the first is a parent of the other.
Those are just a few examples. Please don't overcategorize. For more information, see Wikipedia:Categories#Choosing the correct category. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 18:25, 30 January 2019 (UTC)
Other notes about categorizing[change source]
Stub categories should not be added directly to articles. Those categories should be added only by including stub templates.
The category Category:Women is not for entries about individual women. See the description in the category for more information.

First, why did you change ISBNs in citations from 10-digit to 13-digit? Sometimes the same book can have multiple ISBNs, because different editions have different ISBNs. Unless you have verified that the 13-digit ISBN also supports the statement that is being referenced, the 10-digit ISBN should be left.
Your change introduced some duplicate parameters into a citation template. It looks like you were trying to add archiveurl and archivedate parameters. However, the template already had those parameters, albeit with null values. The result is that the parameters you added are being ignored because the ones that were already there are after the ones you added. When you add parameters, it's a good idea to make sure the template doesn't already have them. You can find the duplicate parameters by editing the article and doing a preview: a message appears at the top. I went ahead and fixed this one.
