Talk:Roman numeralsEdit

Thanks for "butting in' here - I am feeling a bit overwhelmed in this "argument", and the lightest of support is very welcome. Since the "sections" or "sub-topics" on this page were getting a bit extended I have done a little editing to make things clearer - including putting your comment into a separate thread. Realise I have probably broken a few "rules" (laughs hysterically) about what one usually does to a talk page but I couldn't see how anyone was going to be able to follow stuff as it had gone. --Soundofmusicals (talk) 10:30, 25 May 2020 (UTC)

Invitation to RedWarnEdit

Hello, Martin of Sheffield! I noticed you have been using Twinkle and was wondering if you'd like to beta test my new tool, RedWarn, specifically designed to improve your editing experience.

  • Easy to use - Unlike other tools, RedWarn uses easy to interpret icons and simple summaries for common actions, reducing both learning and reading times.
  • Supports rollback and rollback-like functionality - Unlike Twinkle, RedWarn supports both rollback and rollback-like functionality for users will rollback permissions. This decreases waiting times during rollbacks.
  • Making life easier on the battlefield - Ever been in the middle of a vandalism war or campaign, frantically reloading the history page to see a new edit? No more! Enabling RedWarn's "Alert on Change" feature will automatically send you to the latest edit when a new edit occurs - and if you're working on something else, RedWarn will send you a notification while the tab is still open in the background. No time wasted.
  • Rollback previews - If you're ever worried about the changes a rollback will make, especially in the case of reverting good faith edits, you can click the rollback preview button to preview the difference a rollback will make, with the version that will be restored on the right, and the latest revision on the left.
  • Always the latest revision - RedWarn will automatically redirect you to the latest revision if the rollback is no longer for the latest revision - no more frustrating errors.
  • Fast - RedWarn can automatically select a warning level, and, on vandalism and content removal rollbacks, automatically select a warning template.
  • Built on your feedback - RedWarn is receiving frequent feature additions and changes based on your feedback. If there's something you don't like, or would like to see, just say!
  • and many more features ...but I don't want to fill your userpage.

RedWarn is currently in use by over 50 other Wikipedians, and feedback so far has been extremely positive. If you're interested, please see see the RedWarn tool page for more information on RedWarn's features which I haven't listed here. Otherwise, feel free to remove this message from your page. If you have any further questions, please ping me or leave a message on my talk page. Your feedback is much appreciated! Ed6767 talk! 14:08, 10 June 2020 (UTC)

Hi Ed6767. I'm a bit busy at the moment, but will have a look at it in a day or so. One thing I'm a little concerned about: does it rely only on icons for the actions or is it possible to add human language to the machine's squiggles? Martin of Sheffield (talk) 14:59, 10 June 2020 (UTC)

Talk:Roman numeralsEdit

Thanks for fixing the mess left by our (I suspect, largely mischievous) friend. I am not so hot on "tricks" with hidden text etc. And, incidentally, thanks for your constructive work on the article itself - while battling someone like [that person] the odd rational remark and sensible suggestion comes like balm from heaven! --Soundofmusicals (talk) 23:00, 5 July 2020 (UTC)
