By the same token, if I leave a comment on your talk page, please respond to it there. Remember, we can use our watchlist to keep track of when responses are made.

Need help undoing an edit I madeEdit

Hi! I made an edit on this page: I'm an idiot and shouldn't have tried to edit something that is obviously beyond me. I tried to undo it and I think I made it worse. Sorry about that, and thanks for all the edits you've done...I learned a lot on that page!

Also, I put the squiggles here (I'm not sure where they go). I'm going to go off and learn how to actually use wikipedia before I mess anything else up 😅 Labofoz (talk) 01:02, 9 January 2019 (UTC)

No problem, it's easy to fix. I've switched the article back to the version before your edits. The situation with A/ is complicated because those objects have all been reclassified (some more than once). I'm not sure the current version of Naming of comets is strictly correct due to those reclassifications, but haven't tracked down the latest IAU guidance.

Main PageEdit

Thanks for passing on the wisdom on elections on the Main Page . . . didn't know! Cheers. Chris vLS (talk) 22:51, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

No problem. It's not a rule that's written down anywhere, just general practice. Modest Genius talk 15:19, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

November 11 2018 seismic eventEdit

Hi Modest Genius, A few more references have been added to November 11 2018 seismic event which I think would now pass WP:GNG, just in case I've missed something could you please review and remove the template if you agree or leave a reply here if you don't think there is still not enough? Regards Hughesdarren (talk) 10:50, 26 January 2019 (UTC)

Thanks. The new material you've added does demonstrate coverage in multiple third-party reliable sources, so I've removed the tag. Modest Genius talk 17:59, 27 January 2019 (UTC)
Cheers for that. I was pretty sure that article could be salvaged with a few more refs. Hughesdarren (talk) 04:17, 28 January 2019 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for July 31Edit

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Stereoscopy, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Anaglyph (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)
