I believe I've dealt with this editor before when he was editing similar articles using a different IP. He made the same "kids who know nothing hassling smart old me" comments. At the time, he claimed to be a University Professor in Media or some such, posting from his office. Of course, his IP info said differently. He was blocked then, and this new instance is blocked.

Thanks for all the info and the links JoeSperrazza. I appreciate you taking the time to do this and it will be good to have it in one place. In the AN report Binksternet supplied the link to a previous ANI discussion seen here Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/IncidentArchive887#IP troll Stubbornness or trolling either way it is a shame really. Oh, flunking students that disagreed with you is the opposite of what being and educator is about. Thanks again and cheers. MarnetteD|Talk 21:46, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

(edit conflict) Ah - thanks for the explanation P. The flipping out in the edit summaries is familiar. If my memory dredges up any names I'll let you know. MarnetteD|Talk 22:22, 3 November 2017 (UTC)
Excellent Sro23!! Thanks for posting. MarnetteD|Talk 22:22, 3 November 2017 (UTC)
Thanks NinjaRobotPirate. This is all ringing some bells - I think you may have told me about this before. If so I'm glad you refreshed my memory. Cheers. MarnetteD|Talk 07:23, 4 November 2017 (UTC)

A Newcastle for you!Edit

Thanks DQ. I realized I hadn't been through our DW articles for a few years and decided it was time to take a journey through Time and Space :-) Cheers. MarnetteD|Talk 17:22, 11 September 2019 (UTC)

Hello. Help improve the article. Thanks you. Vtukol (talk) 00:45, 15 September 2019 (UTC)

Hello V. I'm not sure what I can do as the subject isn't my forte. I can say that it looks pretty good to me. You could make a request for input and assistance at any of the wikiprojects listed on the talk page Talk:Akane Yamaguchi. MarnetteD|Talk 00:52, 15 September 2019 (UTC)

Raw linksEdit

Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know that I've been having an issue with Reflinks for a few months ago. I keep getting a python code error when I attempt to use it, and so have had to rely solely on Refill. My apologies for putting you and another editor to having to clean up articles I tag and can't completely scrub. But thanks for taking care of them. Onel5969 TT me 00:37, 27 September 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for your note Onel5969. I hope you are well. Yeah I've seen it go out of service (so to speak) when it is being worked on. At those times it feels like we are trying to fix those pesky bare urls with one hand tied behind our backs :-) No need for apologies - you know working on them helps scratch my wikignome itch. I do appreciate all your efforts here at the 'pedia. Best regards. MarnetteD|Talk 01:17, 27 September 2019 (UTC)

Thanks Doug Weller. I did check a bit of that thread. I was heading off to report the socking but saw that Floq had already applied the block. A crazy Friday so far :-) Cheers. MarnetteD|Talk 16:33, 27 September 2019 (UTC)

AfroCine: Join the Months of African Cinema this October!Edit


After a successful first iteration of the “Months of African Cinema” last year, we are happy to announce that it will be happening again this year, starting from October 1! In the 2018 edition of the contest, about 600 Wikipedia articles were created in at least 8 languages. There were also contributions to Wikidata and Wikimedia commons, which brought the total number of wikimedia pages created during the contest to over 1,000.

The AfroCine Project welcomes you to October, the first out of the two months which have been dedicated to creating and improving content that centre around the cinema of Africa, the Caribbean, and the diaspora. Join us in this global edit-a-thon, by helping to create or expand articles which are connected to this scope. Also remember to list your name under the participants section.

On English Wikipedia, we would be recognizing participants in the following manner:

  • Overall winner (1st, 2nd, 3rd places)
  • Diversity winner
  • Gender-gap fillers
For further information about the contest, the recognition categories and how to participate, please visit the contest page here. For further inquiries, please leave comments on the contest talkpage or on the main project talkpage. See you around :).--Jamie Tubers (talk) 00:50, 30 September 2019 (UTC)

The Ocean RaceEdit

Usually, after I run ref fill, the "Bare URL" notice is automatically removed. I assumed there was some problem (that I wasn't seeing) which caused it to not be removed. Frequently, someone else comes by, runs ref fill again, and fixes more references. I can't explain it. I don't know how or why, but I have seen it happen. Cheers. 7&6=thirteen () 14:37, 8 October 2019 (UTC)

No worries 7&6=thirteen . I've found that there are several different bare url tags and refill isn't programmed to recognize all of them and that can cause them to get left after we've run it. Also the new "Refill 2" misses some that the old refill didn't. Cheers and happy editing to ya. MarnetteD|Talk 17:38, 8 October 2019 (UTC)
