The Special Barnstar
For sticking around after all. GregorB (talk) 15:03, 4 August 2020 (UTC)

Good to see you back! GregorB (talk) 15:03, 4 August 2020 (UTC)

I suppose "sticking around" describes it as well. I think I've scaled down my editing, these days I'm trying to enjoy it more. GregorB (talk) 00:39, 6 August 2020 (UTC)



I noticed that in this edit (diff) you referred to some authors as "dubious figure". That is clear violation of WP:BLP. Will you please be so kind not to repeat such violations in future. All the best.--Antidiskriminator (talk) 20:22, 7 August 2020 (UTC)

Did you also notice that this was a post on an article's talk page rather than article itself and hence WP:BLP does not apply? All the best. Timbouctou (talk) 21:44, 7 August 2020 (UTC)
BLP applies across the entire project, not just article space.-- Jezebel's Ponyobons mots 21:46, 7 August 2020 (UTC)
Lol so this is how it's going to be. Wikipedists wikilawyering to keep articles of zero encyclopaedic value masquerade as articles. Laughable. Timbouctou (talk) 21:49, 7 August 2020 (UTC)
I'm not wikilawyering anything or trying to keep any article. You made a statement regarding a core policy that was flat out wrong and I corrected you.-- Jezebel's Ponyobons mots 21:54, 7 August 2020 (UTC)
This was never a core policy, but perhaps times have changed. Yes, there is such a thing as dubious figures and yes I will keep calling them that. Thanks so much for your correction. Timbouctou (talk) 21:56, 7 August 2020 (UTC)

Custom signature fix neededEdit

Hi there! You have a custom signature set in your account preferences. A change to Wikipedia's software has made your current custom signature incompatible with the software.

The problem: Your signature contains a syntax error, specifically formatting tags that are in the wrong order.

The solutions: You can reset your signature to the default, or you can fix your signature.

Solution 1: Reset your signature to the default:
  1. Find the signature section in the first tab of Special:Preferences.
  2. Uncheck the box (☑︎→☐) that says "Treat the above as wiki markup."
  3. Remove anything in the Signature: text box.
  4. Click the blue "Save" button at the bottom of the page. (The red "Restore all default settings (in all sections)" button will reset all of your preference settings, not just the signature.)
Solution 2: Fix your custom signature:
  1. Find the signature section in the first tab of Special:Preferences.
  2. Change the signature as shown below, or make other edits to make the signature appear how you want it to appear.
  3. Click Save to update to your newly fixed signature.

Current signature:
[[User:Timbouctou|''<span style='font-family: Georgia, serif; color:#639;'><em>Timbouctou</em></span>]] ([[User talk:Timbouctou|''<span style='font-family: Georgia, serif; color:#639;'><em>talk</em></span>]])

Fixed signature:
''[[User:Timbouctou|<span style='font-family: Georgia, serif; color:#639;'><em>Timbouctou</em></span>]] ([[User talk:Timbouctou|<span style='font-family: Georgia, serif; color:#639;'><em>talk</em></span>]])''

More information is available at Wikipedia:Signatures#Customizing how everyone sees your signature. If you have followed these instructions and still want help, please leave a message at Wikipedia talk:Signatures. Thanks. – Jonesey95 (talk) 23:56, 13 September 2020 (UTC)
