However, I am homeschooled and still available on weekdays. You may try to contact me on my talk page, but there is no guarantee I will get back to you in a timely manner.

SerendipiteeSerendipitee said:

Just an observation that edit descriptions such as "tweaking a bit" and "a few fixes" which are non-specific are generally not useful. I say this, having looked through article histories that are hundreds of edits long for a specific addition only to find that often it is not called out by the edit summary.

At 14:44, Dec 23, 2013

SerendipiteeSerendipitee said:

Yes, Abro, I think that the type of edit summaries you mentioned would be perfectly appropriate. To be quite honest, I would leave more specific summaries in quickedit mode except that even a massive edit does not get included on the leader board if you put any edit summary. I have suggested that this needs to be changed, but it will likely not be changed any time soon. My contention is that editors ought to be encouraged to leave the appropriate edit summary and one way to do that would to be to increment a visible number-- if an editor got double credit, it would not be inappropriate. On the other hand, discouraging good edit summaries by not counting such edits on the leader board (number of quick edits) is going the the wrong way.

It used to be that big-time editors had an extensive set of abbreviations for their edits. I am not sure what they all were, but I have seen rm=remove, m=minor edit, +=add, ce=copyedit. Since the software now accumulates past edit summaries and supplies those as "look ahead" fill-ins, it is very easy to build and maintain a set of appropriate edit summaries within your history. This is done be putting accurate summaries and shift-deleting those that will likely not be reused.

I actually think that if the edit summary history worked the way it does now and everyone had taken the time to put in appropriate summaries from day one, less time would have been spent on the combined effort of labeling edits and searching for specific edits. This is hard to prove, but it is my feeling. (Maybe no one else has spent a lot of time trying to find which editor added a video, say, or instances of misused tags.)

I try to lead by example, but do make the observation that, to me, "tweaking a bit" adds exactly no useful information to an article history. It just says an edit was done and takes up space. However, improving flow, eliminating awkward phrasing, replacing weak verbs, at least properly attributes the work done. Such summaries say a bit more than a little work was done or a lot of work was done.

This is all my personal opinion and I will likely edit my words to you and reuse them when I make a formal suggestion in the forums or elsewhere. So please don't think I am too crazy by airing my thoughts so extensively. And thank you for the awesome, meticulous additions/corrections you make to the articles.

Joanna-ramsayjoanna ramsay said:

don't ever delete the passage that reminds you how to be lying is a confiedent feeling that expresses emotionally vacant to any one never gets and gets trouble. pretend trouble is a laxative. do not get trouble with any one that someone bullies you that make you feel uncomfterable. be appropriate. be considerate. how to be nice is the thing when you make friends they will go out and they will relate to you. do not remove the passage because it hurts other feelings and be scared and people will not even notice you. try to get new friends like popular friends be deciving to your friends what they convey the problem. it is not someone who owns the apology and something you get rid of when you do not get along with your friends because when you do make friends even worse it will become is no good when someone is not around. do not make a entering that people who really likes just be confident be like people who intrest you do not be crazy with your boy crush because people will be obsessing with boys who likes or dislikes and he will come uncomfterable and make friends with another person if you want to get anther person do not go crazy and be weired or anything be nice to our boy crushes or girlfriends and boyfriend that have no problems and who has problems. this might help to get along with friends.

Hey Abrog!

I got your wikiPhoto feedback - thanks for passing it on! I'm a bit confused about the images in Keep Your Guinea Pig Cool in Hot Weather - can you help me out so I can be sure to pass on the right info? It looks to me like that's a wire cage with a plastic floor. Is that still not okay? I saw they had added new images, but I thought that was probably better than what was there before. Is it still a problem?

I'd be happy to try to pick out some of the titles that need redoing and pass that info on, but if you have ones specifically in mind, let me know the titles and I can send them along. Thank you for your diligence with it!

At 19:04, Jan 02, 2014

AnnaAnna said:

Scratch that - I see the wire now. I saw the plastic and didn't make out whether the wire was just the sides of the cage, or above the plastic, too, but I think you're right that it's above. I'll remove the images on that article and pass the feedback on!

Do you have links for the other affected articles so I can do the same? You are welcome to remove the images (or I can if you prefer not to), and you can email me any titles at anna@wikihow.com, so I can ask for them to be redone. Or you can leave feedback directly on the relevant images by clicking the "helpful" button in the lower left corner. The images are obtained in bulk, so we rely on great feedback like yours to remove any that aren't helpful.

It'd also be great to improve the written accuracy on these articles, too. If you see any that are unclear in their guidelines, please do add written warnings so folks know about it! That will actually also help with future photographs, since the photographs are based on the article contents and advice. It can be a win-win to help keep the pigs safe :)

I'll talk to the wP team right now about it so they can be on the lookout for any images that are off, too. If you can pass along the relevant titles or do the "helpful?" feedback, we can get those fixed up, too. Thanks Abrog!

At 21:44, Jan 02, 2014

AnnaAnna said:

Ok, that's great, thank you! I'll pass on that list - and no problem, you can just send them right to me or the WP talk page, and I'll pass them on. Thanks for looking out for the guinea pigs! :)

Good luck at the dentist! I have to make my check-up appointment soon, too - yuck. Happy New year!

AnnaAnna said:

Nice catch! All fixed:

Thanks for starting a new article here! Unfortunately, I noticed that your article doesn't appear to have enough content to be useful to readers, so I nominated it for deletion as incomplete, because we don't generally keep articles that don't provide written instructions.

If it's just that you weren't finished with it, please edit the page and write {{inuse}} at the very beginning. This will tell our editors that you need another week or two to finish the page. Don't remove the {{nfd}} tag, though! When you've finished writing the article, someone else will remove it for you.

If you're not sure what to write, read our article on how to use information from other sites and how to cite it properly.

I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any questions.

Hi, You may be correct about the edit http://www.wikihow.com/index.php?title=Start-a-Dog-Walking-Club&diff=next&oldid=12590285 being correct for walking dogs, I reverted since it looked like the category was added, not moved, and Starting a Dog Walking Club would seem more in line with clubs category, since it isn't about working with dogs, it is about starting a club (I also am not sure how a doggy doodoo bag is needed for starting a club, but that is another story.

Cheers!

Hey Abro,

I see by BR's message that there are many ways to look at something and that he properly went by the title, whereas I was going with the content and by my perception of the intent of the author.

Anyhow, I wanted to give you a "heads up" about your reversion of the Hasbeen400 edit (as seen in this history: [3].) I would have expected that the rollback would have gone back only one edit to Adele's second edit, but, apparently, it reverted one of Adele's edits as well, going back to her first edit. To me, this was highly unexpected. You don't have to do any adjustment to the article, though, because I am editing it substantially.

Dude cheek out my new article called how to get rocket boots in terraria

BRBR said:

Hi! Thanks for your feedback, and because I went back and actually read the article, I placed a {{accuracy}} on it, there really isn't anything about a dog walking club on it, it is about making money walking dogs, essentially a duplicate of another article.

It does boost my confidence knowing concerned people are checking my edits and patrolling, we all do make mistakes, so knowing you checked and questioned the roll back is appreciated!

Yep, I think that'd be a fair removal! Those topics aren't necessarily that closely related anyway - seems like you wouldn't be going from one to the other, since the audiences are pretty different. Sometimes Relateds do need checking over and altering as time goes on, so good call! Feel free to remove it!

Thanks for your edits on Travel in India.

I noticed you were manually undoing these ones - were you having trouble with rollbacks there? I'm investigating an issue where some rolllbacks don't work, so let me know - if you can provide any insight about what you saw happen, it might help us fix it. Thanks! :)

Hi,

They seem to have mounted an attack last night, with about 100 edits and 15 or so accounts, I posted a message here http://forums.wikihow.com/discussion/9005/a-new-joint-spam-attack-we-need-to-be-watchful-of-this-tactic./#Item_4 and sent an email to checkuser@wikiHow.com to get the IP blocked if they are using an individual ISP, but haven't heard back. They are pretty smart, since their link cannot be blocked in the spam blacklist, so all I know to do is to keep blocking them and undoing their edits. The thing that makes it bad is they work in pairs, one marking the others spam edits patrolled....

Thanks for your great diligence, and for the message, hopefully the link they are promoting will expire soon, or they will give up!

As a matter of fact, thanks for a lot of great work you do!

Cheers!

Hey Abrogation,

Thanks for your Administrator notice! I sent the user a warning, but I just wanted to let you know this can be done by you too, and isn't an "admin-only" thing.

Just place the template {{username}} on the user's talk page and he'll get the warning. If nothing happens after that, further action is always available, but just use the template to start off with ;)

Great work reporting, and everything you do! Keep it up!

Thanks for notifying me. I placed a protection on it for now, so unregistered users wont be able to edit it. This only lasts for one day though. If it gets more vandalism edits, it can be protected longer.
