Thanks for your edits on Use the wikiHow New Article Boost App. In a way, your edit is true. However, if you remember, in part of it, your edit wouldn't have been true, as Krystle uses email to send the other parts back and forth.

Ahh, I see what you're saying. I made an edit to modify that sentence as to avoid confusion :) I hope this revision helps!

Thanks for the wP feedback. Agreed on both fronts! I'll leave the distance one as is for now but pass the feedback on for both so hopefully we can get some improvements there :)

As for the printing problem - well, honestly, I don't that page is designed for printing, being a special page. Maybe you can copy the contents to a word doc before printing, or specify in your printing preferences that you only want to print page 1 of 2, etc? Sorry for the frustration!

Heh, your waistcoat - love it. No worries on the Internet, Chris! Hope you get it back soon but don't stress from our point of view.

I got the photo feedback, too. Thanks for the heads-up - those wikiHow screenshots look good but aren't right, hah! We'll do a redo. Sorry about the double upload on Kindle -- not intentional, just part of that glitch that comes through in the system sometimes. We're lining it up for screenshots or photos instead. Thanks, Chris!

At 19:51, Jan 11, 2014

AnnaAnna said:

Thanks for the wP feedback, Chris. Maybe that article would do better with some kind of math-based illustrations. The second part doesn't really seem to be as instructional though, so it might be harder to get good images there. I'll pass the feedback on, anyway!

Hey Chris!

I'm just snooping around articles with the {{attention}} tag on and came acrossthis article. Seeing as you are the last person to comment on the discussion page, do you have any further information if this is still the case? If it's not I'll lift the tag from the article.

Thanks!

Thanks a lot for your message, I only asked seeing as the latest post on the discussion page from you was in September 2013 (prior to today). Anyway, with that cleared I guess we'll just need to wait.

Thanks!

AnnaAnna said:

Thanks for the wP feedback - glad you liked several of the uploads. On the Diaper article, are there any images from before that might work (I realize not all will, with a bold rewrite)? If so, it might help to put certain ones back in, since I don't know if it'll be doable again so quickly after the images were added. But I'll pass it on anyway, and see if it's possible. Thanks!

If you haven't encountered a streaming problem, then why the hell are you commenting?

The function has nothing to do with an Internet Browser. It has to do with streaming via a streaming device such as a Blu-Ray player, etc. Hundreds of people, including myself, are encountering exactly the problem described in the article, i.e. the dropping away of the streaming signal.

And guess what? I've used Netflix's online reporting dozens of times with no results, ever! Not a single word from Netflix, and no improvement in the streaming signal. The problem reporting is just a bullshit to attempt to keep you happy.

Hi, Chris,

You marked this edit patrolled http://www.wikihow.com/index.php?title=Get-Senpai-to-Notice-You&oldid=12422720&diff=prev but it was categorized as pokemon XY, and Senpai is an anime character, not a game character. I am sure you have been around long enough to know better than to patrol miscategorizations, since it may never be corrected.

Thanks!

Bob

At 01:18, Jan 17, 2014

BRBR said:

It really doesn't help to assume good faith if the edit is wrong, does it? You know an article only goes in the categorization queue if it is not already categorized, and you know you don't patrol an edit if you don't know the topic well enough to tell if it is accurate.

It appears you also patrolled this edit http://www.wikihow.com/index.php?title=Draw&diff=12423326&oldid=12406351 , but the garbled text is obvious to me.

AnnaAnna said:

I was just adding the info about {{reflist}} in there, because it said it would automatically include the refs, but it won't without the {{reflist}} addition. This was also creating an error for a missing reflist on the upgrade in that particular article (ie, we had ref tags but no reflist, and it was creating a warning message)

At 05:37, Jan 18, 2014

Thanks very much, Chris! And thanks for fixing the ref for me - forgot about the closing tag!

ShinakoShinako said:

Hi Chris,

I was a bit confused about the batter one, and I agree, it shouldn't have been deleted. I am sorry for that.

  • Requested article Make Fresh Butter is essentially a duplicate of existing title Make Homemade Butter.. - I presumed that though the words are different, they mean pretty much the same in this context. You can make fresh butter when you make it at home- that's homemade, isn't it?... or am I missing something here?
  • Requested article Make Fruitcakes is essentially a duplicate of existing title Make a Fruit Cake..- They're the same thing, only singular and plural difference; so I believe that this isn't wrong.
  • Requested article Marble a Cake is essentially a duplicate of existing title Make a Marble Cake. ...- Marble a cake didn't really seem correct to me, and as the user stated, "To marble a cake, you must be making a marble cake; to make a marble cake, you must marble a cake--it's the same thing. " I would agree with that user.
  • Requested article Make Natural Peanut Butter is essentially a duplicate of existing title Make Peanut Butter. -- When you;'re going to be making peanut butter, it would possibly be natural since it;s us who would be making it (not the manufacturing companies or whatsoever), so, I thought they pretty much mean the same.

I agree that I might have done errors and I apologise for that. And, thanks for letting me know about this and for pointing out those policies.

Thanks for your edits on Discussion:Block Someone on wikiHow.

Hi Chris, I was wondering why you issued a rising star to this article? There is another established, and more informative article on this topic (Block Disruptive Users on wikiHow) that includes the actual steps to block a user. This article only tells how to place templates, and is not reflective of the actual blocking process.

Further, I have concerns with articles being written on administrative tasks by non-admin users, as their lack of experience in these areas would signal to me that the accuracy of the article would be in question due to the lack of privileges to actually do these things.

Maybe I'm missing something, but I'd like an explanation as to why you gave this article a Rising Star and removed the NFD template that was placed by BR.

I've re-added the NFD template as a duplicate of the established article on this topic.

Thanks,

Jeff

Thanks for your edits on Block Someone on wikiHow.

Hi, Chris, I wonder why you removed the nfd acc template here without discussion? I actually know how to block someone at wikiHow, and I can tell you without a doubt the article is inaccurate, and I do not believe NAB rights allow you to remove a justified template.

I also cannot believe you would give an inaccurate and duplicate article a rising star, but apparently Jeff has already discussed these points with you.l

BRBR said:

Hi, Chris,

I suspect you need to understand two things. First, I am not terribly concerned or bothered by your reaction to my suggestions or messages, we are who we are. I have people who work for me, if they don't listen, they no longer work for me. Here, we are collaborating together, and not in general directly accountable to each other for what we do. Second, my interests are in maintaining and trying to improve wikiHow, not on whether anyone particularly likes me, or the way I communicate. Anna and Krystle and others get paid to do what they do, so Jack can fire them if they do not present the image the job requires, I give about 4 hours every single day to wikiHow without expectation of thanks or pay, simply because I enjoy (most of) it.

You have been here long enough, and have been given trust to use NAB tools, that wikiHow deserves either your diligence when editing and contributing, or at least the expectation that you do your best in regard to following policies and guidelines at a higher level than new inexperienced contributors. Whether you are angry at me, or frustrated with me, or uncomfortable with the changes going on, or if any other issue is bothering you really doesn't concern me nearly as much as trying to keep spam edits, vandalism, or misuse of wikiHow to a minimum as much as one person can.

Thanks,

Bob

Thanks for your edits on Create a Permalink to a Single wikiHow Edit.


Hi, I was wondering why you rolled back the WikiPhoto images on this article? The new images reflect the new design of the site and appear to be accurate. Let me know.

Thanks,

Jeff

At 21:26, Jan 26, 2014

IsorhythmicJeff said:

While that's true, I don't understand how simply rolling back the images so that all of them reflect the outdated design was the best course of action. It seems like it might have been a better idea to notify WikiPhoto that some images still needed to be updated to reflect the current design.

I saw your most recent edit. I'm not sure I agree that no photos are better than outdated ones, so I suggest following through by notifying WikiPhoto that new screenshots are needed for the beginning of method 1.

Thanks,

Jeff

AnnaAnna said:

No prob on the bold fix - glad it's working for you, too!

The logs are basically more complete now, so that update is from the spellchecker log. However, there is no diff or edit or change in the article history, which there is if somebody actually edits (for example here), so I'm guessing that Divinewonton processed an edit there but hadn't actually changed anything - so, it gets logged, but there is no actual edit to see. If you don't get a diff, just consider it unchanged! :)

Yep, the system isn't "smart" enough to know whether a change to your Talk page done by somebody other than you was in fact a message or a revert/archiving/etc. So rest assured that in those cases, you'll get an extra notification, but it doesn't mean you've missed a memo! You can always check the history to be sure, but now you know the reason behind it, you should be good to go! Thanks Chris!

AnnaAnna said:

I can see that having both the photos and the text scrollers saying the same thing might be redundant. I wonder which one is better? Some folks seem to hate the scrollers. I could go either way. But you're welcome to keep whichever set of visuals in that you think is best.

and you are welcome... ButI can't remember a thing on this article. WHAT have I removed? Please remind me . I don't have the time right now to look closely inside it.

I am glad I helped. :)

Laura7491Laura said:

Oh, I see now. Got it. Thanks for the link.

I thought it was not appropriate to include it in the article.

I am glad I did the right thing. :)

Laura7491Laura said:

Chris, you confused me completely.

I thought I did the right thing. And you thanked me for removing this stuff. Now you said the editor should have rolled back??????

Listen, keep your mind clear pls on what you wanted to do. OK? LOL

SerendipiteeSerendipitee said:

Yep, Chris,

I am now adding detailed FB for WikiPhoto. Most of the pictures in the steps are correct, though not all. Overall, the pictures do not add a lot of value and they do get in the way of actually performing the steps a bit. (But that is my feeling about the pictures in a most of the articles.) The other way to look at it is if you had no idea what you were doing, the pictures (if correct) would tell you that you were on the right track.

Hi, Chris, unless something has changed an anonymous user can still opt to remove ads when viewing articles if they want. I am not sure that this was the issue in your message, but thought I would touch base to see.

Thanks

Bob

At 23:29, Feb 03, 2014

BRBR said:

That would be a switch, an anonymous user removing ads instead of adding them. There was a skip ads button in the past, I am not sure if it was before the redesign, or later, and in this case, it doesn't sound like it would matter.

Hi Chris! To follow up on the page design issue that we discussed in IRC, I did add a dog picture to Sofia's page, but all of the Justin Bieber images had copyright watermarks on them. I didn't want to violate copyright law by uploading one of them, so I just added the dog image. But, maybe there's a Justin Bieber image that doesn't have a watermark on it?

Hey Chris,

I looked over the Featured Author edit, but the widget isn't the same as being an FA, so I'm a little confused about its inclusion there? I kept the great tips you included about quality over quantity, but I've removed that document for now, since it's not related to being an FA. Maybe if we're still on two different pages we can chat about it in IRC later?

Thanks for your edits on Understand the Format of a Yelp Business Page - nice update! I'm glad your browser caught up to the changes :)

At 19:42, Feb 14, 2014

AnnaAnna said:

Hmm, I don't know either - in general, it doesn't hurt to have more how-tos out there, as long as the device is widespread enough to be helpful, which it sounds like it probably is? Mal would be the person to ask about categories -- you can always leave it blank if you're not sure at the moment. Good luck with the articles! I bet they'll help some folks who've lost their user manuals...!! :)

Thanks for your edits on Sell on Amazon.

Nice! I did some minor copyediting to cut down the words a little - I'm afraid that even though the tips are great, lots of words might become overwhelming (sadly, when there are a ton of tips, people just don't seem to read the details!). Have you considered maybe doing separate articles for some of the more detailed/nuanced areas?

I can ask for images, yes -- the way the bot works, it will override all the images on the page, rather than being selective in only doing the 25% that you haven't, but you can always "jigsaw" puzzle things together to combine the best of both versions in the end (yours and theirs).

At 21:15, Feb 20, 2014

AnnaAnna said:

Thanks for the photo feedback, Chris! It would definitely help on the Photoshop one to have directions that explain just what to click on, so the screenshots can follow along. Or if you'd prefer to get it just right, you can do them yourself - what do you think?

On the Facebook one, I think the last step was trying to illustrate what you're avoiding - so maybe an X overlay would help. Good idea!

Do what you think best on the Metro one. Since it's city-specific, it's unlikely we can get images of the actual Metro there. Some of the current images may be better than nothing, but it's up to you! Thanks for the feedback, and I'll pass it on!

Hey Chris,
I don't often answer and questions from the Help Team page, but do see the efficacy of supplying articles to describe the procedures and will try to conform to this ideal.

I am sorry, but I do not see any direction that says that the keypress template should only be used for keys that exist on a keyboard. Could you send me a screenshot of this and supply your reasoning? I think keypress is ideal for representing the clickable buttons on a screen and the selection items from menus or drop down lists. Why should the graphics be limited so narrowly?

Thanks for the wikiPhoto feedback, Chris! I'm wondering, on the Hotmail article, whether the steps have changed since you first wrote the article? It could be that the wikivids actually fit the process as it is now (since, they must have gone through the steps to take the screencasts, I can't imagine they'd be totally off). Maybe you can double check when you have a minute? The videos might actually fit the bill after an update there.

Glad you liked the Santa Tracking pics!

Thanks for the info! let me know if any menus or screens I illustrated are out of date or has undergone changes for kindle 2 so I can update them. There are a lot of info about kindle 2 out there but not a lot of images or illustrations showing what they look like on screen. That way we can help more people out there.

Thanks for your edits on Change Your Facebook Password.

You are exactly right, as far as the last items, unless there is a MagicWord thing, it does go below the interwiki links.

I really appreciate the fact you are willing to take time to help straighten those out!

At 14:32, Mar 08, 2014

BRBR said:

I actually knew you knew about the magic words...and that it didn't apply there, the main thing si that when you write an edit summary explaining why you do something, people who read the summary actually learn from it, not just by seeing the edit itself. It is unfortunate a lot of people don't read edit summaries.

Cheers!

Thanks for your edits on Make Friends with MeetPeopleOnline.com.

I reverted them because they are not from the website named in the title, they are from earned dating dot com....and I doubt they are screenshots, since they are licensed self. Since I trust Maluniu, I figured the safest thing to do was just remove them, it doesn't bother me the earlier images don't display, the code isn't messing up the format.

Honestly, I think you are wrong, but I could also see dumping the whole article in the garbage as trash or advertising.

BRBR said:

Thanks for your edits on Make Friends with MeetPeopleOnline.com.

By the way, I left your edit, even though for the reason above, I think they are wrong. I also think the license is wrong, that the images are illegal copies.

At 15:59, Mar 08, 2014

BRBR said:

Thanks for the message, Chris, that was one of those edits that is hard to decide on, as I mentioned, the thing that threw me was the fact he licensed the image cc/self, and it is obvious they were copied and pasted (not really screenshots), and to me were advertising the different site. I would probably favor removing the other image codes, but it isn't a big deal.

Have a great day!

AnnaAnna said:

Not sure, Chris - maybe you can just demonstrate it on one of the articles that already has them where they're a good fit? Up to you, though!

Okie doke, glad you found one!

At 00:51, Mar 09, 2014

AnnaAnna said:

Cool Chris! Don't worry about the temp file - it was a temporary thing, post-upgrade, before they could get all the temporary picture upload files stored away somewhere else. That "temp" file you see became an actual image that you did upload and is still on the site, but the temp one stuck in the logs for a little while post-upgrade - now, when you do the same thing, the temp file is logged by a bot instead; User:Imageuploadbot :)

At 00:58, Mar 09, 2014

AnnaAnna said:

It's complicated, but when you upload, the temporary file that initially gets uploaded as part of the process is logged in the bot's logs. Then the final result, after the upload, is logged in your own contributions/uploads. So you'll still be able to fine your uploads in your contribs, and you'll no longer find those temporary files there (but for the period of about a week after the upgrade, you did see temp files in everyone's uploads - which is why you still have a few temp files in your history). Long story short though, is it's fine, just a quirk of engineering, so don't worry about it :)

At 01:07, Mar 09, 2014

AnnaAnna said:

Most of the time, it should be working fine, in that the temp files are only getting logged by the bot, not in your contribs - but it looks like occasionally they show up in the uploader's (your) contributions too. I'll ask about it, but if it's not a common thing, it shouldn't be a big deal - just know that it's a-okay to see those; it's just a step in the upload process before the real final image is displayed and usable. You can just "skip over it" with your eyes, no harm done - and I'll get Aaron (the engineer) to make sure everything is working right from his end too. Going offline for now - hope you have a good weekend Chris!

SerendipiteeSerendipitee said:

Hey, Chris,
I saw you undid some edits on Install Jing. I was wondering about the reversion because the edit seemed good to me. The versions you put back are outdated. Also, I have not seen too many software versions in the articles. (I am guessing that is because it is a real pain to keep them up-to-date.) Similarly, a review of software has to be related to that software. How can it not be?

So, I was wondering what you saw that was cause for reversion?

Sure Chris, I'll put in the request. I can't guarantee what kind of stroller or approach the images will take, but I can request it and see what comes out :)

Thanks, Chris, for your response on Install Jing. What I was looking at in RCP was a total reversion. I see now that you did restore some of the edit - 49 hours later.

In the Warnings, I still do not understand

When scrolling through the list of programs that come up for Jing results, be careful of any Product Reviews. These are not related to the program.
Again, I ask how could a review of a software program not be related to that software program?

Hey Chris!

Sorry to hear about the videos - I understand your mom's concern, though. I'm never very comfortable having photos or videos of myself on the Internet, and it can get particularly tricky on topics like that (even though I'm sure your approach was good, with the teddy bear).

I'm afraid there's no other mechanism for uploading or embedding videos. It is what it is for now. Maybe you can find some other good ones through the regular embedding search? If not, the articles are probably okay without videos for now - I wouldn't stress about it. We can talk more in IRC next week about it if you want :)

At 20:14, Mar 16, 2014

AnnaAnna said:

Thanks for the wP posts, too!

To be honest, I'm not sure whether those articles can have wikivids added. They may be able to, but it's a tough subject to do properly without getting into any less appropriate imagery, so I'm not sure. I'll ask though!

I'll check on the vectors article, too. I'm not sure whether having both images and videos was intentional there, or if it's a glitch in the uploads, so I'll find out. Thanks for the heads-up!

Thanks Chris! I definitely agree with you on the code being tricky. Right now, we're just testing out this format to see how readers and contributors like it.

For now, it's just a test, but if we figure out more ways of doing this layout easily, I (or Anna or Krystle) will let you know!

Just checking in on this one - I don't think there's a chance to do more images at the moment, so I tried restoring the ones that seemed better out of the mix. What do you think? If you have other images you want to add instead of course go for it!

At 18:22, Mar 29, 2014

AnnaAnna said:

No prob Chris! I think a variety of screenshots makes sense for the customer service one. For the SWF article, you could always include whatever methods do make it possible (outside software that you mentioned, etc) - that way, if someone is searching for how, they can find some solutions, even if it's not directly possible through YouTube. I don't know how those uploads work myself really, though, so I trust your judgement on whether there's a useable method there or not :)

At 20:17, Mar 29, 2014

AnnaAnna said:

I'm confused on the HTML article - the tags are missing on the steps where it hasn't been added yet, because it's following the step-by-step of the article -- but they're there when it comes to the right step each time? Are closing HTML tags missing somewhere in the final product?

Hey Byankno!

So those images were removed after a review - the team suspects those images might not be unique and wants to be sure on licensing to avoid any inadvertent plagiarism. When they review uploads, if anything looks off, they take a "better safe than sorry" approach. Once it gets reviewed, hopefully they can either be added back or new ones can be uploaded instead. Thanks for your patience!

"Thanks for your edits on Do an Easter Egg Hunt Indoors. Easter egg hunts aren't just for a SINGLE egg, and they contain "trick" stuff overlying them (not out in the open). Haven't you ever taken part in an Easter Egg hunt before, when you were a kid?"

Hi Chris,

I'm not sure I understand why you're clarifying that to me :) All I did was remove the final image (of someone writing) so that the new final image would be one that contained an egg, which I thought would be a better thumbnail for the article than a picture of someone writing.

The picture shows a single egg in plain sight because the step says "The Easter eggs can be hidden in easy-to-spot locations for younger children, or in complex locations for older children. For example, if the children are toddlers, hide eggs in corners of rooms, or in Easter baskets within plain view." I think it is intended to show how you would "hide" an egg for a very young child who doesn't yet have the maturity to find eggs that are better hidden.

Hey, Chris,

Can you clue me in on your reasoning behind patrolling this diff? I was under the impression that there was to be only one video per article and that was supposed to be embedded unless there was an overriding reason for more videos. I was also under the impression that "further reading" links and such were also discouraged.

I am new and often get confused by the flip flop of policy interpretation and enforcement.

There are 3 of you already who don't know what blocking Firefox is about.

Well, I posted it on STtD for now. .

I'm afraid I don't know what they do for that, Chris - they have a lot of different types of screenshotting software, so chances are one of them does it, but I don't have the details. On my Mac, when I'm trying to capture something on a hover-over/drop-down menu, I use the keyboard shortcuts for screenshotting - does Windows have something like that?

Thanks for your edits on User_talk:Wikivisual.

Thanks Chris! Yeah, we know about this bug - and they're working on it. Thanks for checking in about it! I've replaced the images there - feel free to do the same if you see it in future! :)

At 23:41, May 06, 2014

AnnaAnna said:

Nice! You should send it to some of the bold editors who went out of the airport - maybe DvortyGirl or Elocina. They might have some great points to add!

For me, I noticed that it was really busy, even at 5 am - it took me an hour to get through check-in and security. And the tram - did you mention that part? I had to take a tram out to the terminal. I'll try to think of more and chime in on the article in due course :)

DvortygirlDvortygirl said:

Hi Chris, If I'd known we were writing an article on that subject, I'd have snapped a couple photos of the hotel and tram during the couple hours I spent waiting for my flight. Do try an image search in flickr Wikimedia Commons if you haven't yet. We can't have been the first bored passengers to file through an airport.

Which airline did you fly? I noticed that Southwest had lots of outlets on its gate furniture for plugging in electronics. If I knew whether that was an airport thing or a Southwest thing I'd add that to the article. I somewhat suspect Southwest, even though I asked the employees in Orlando and they thought it was airport. Southwest had identical furnishings in Chicago Midway. Another useful tidbit, if you can find it, would be a list of airlines that regularly fly in and out of there.

I also took a stab at rewriting in the article. Our insistence on leading with verbs seems to result sometimes in beginnings such as "Realize" and "Recognize," so I substituted some more active verbs and tidied up some of the sentences that felt clunky or roundabout.

Great to meet you, by the way.

JordanJordan said:

Thanks for the thumbs up! Nice article, by the way. MCO is definitely one of those airports that should have an article for navigating it.

P.S. Too bad we didn't cross paths at the meetup in Florida - it would have been great to meet you. I was there, but not with the group from Friday night through Saturday, so I guess it was the timing. Next time hopefully :)

Hi Chris! It was good to meet you on Friday. I looked at the article and I do have some possible tips based on my experience, but need to figure out the right way to phrase things.

Yeah, I tend to point folks in the direction of Collab Corner for article collaborations and Help Using wikiHow for wikiHow-related questions/suggestions. I think suggestions can sometimes go to Village Pump too, but in a way that's reserved for really big discussions. Does that make sense? No hard rule that I know of though - just my inkling!

Thanks for the kudos and reassurance on the closing a Yelp account page! I wasn't sure if you'd covered it before - glad it's not a dup. I had an old, old Yelp account that I forgot about - I don't think I'd ever posted any reviews, even! Anyway, I found an email from them, so I figured I'd close it. Since we didn't have the article, thought I'd write it - a nice quick one! :)

Laura7491Laura said:

Hi Chris,

thanks but... no, actually not all of the sudden. I knew it a long time ago, and I always recorded it in STtD.

It's just an issue regarding the duplicate articles, that I told you awhile ago, and I still think exists. .

I was confirmed in my opinion when I was about to answer a requested article "How to filter incoming messages in Yahoo mail" . I already did a draft when I found out that an article "How to create a filter in Yahoo mail" already existed, which in my opinion is a duplicate though a title looks slightly different. If I answered this request it WOULD have been a duplicate, The exisiting article described a process I was going to include in my article.

I did not record it on STtD list because they were NOT considered duplicates by you and some admin. and were deleted from the list in the past.

However I stick to my own opinion and will not change it.:)

A good 30% of the requested articles do have duplicates on wiki's database.

Hey Chris!

I saw your feedback on the printer article. I read it over and it seems like most of the steps match up? I know there's more than one way to get to "My Computer," so I think that's okay to have a different way up there - am I missing something?

I do see what you're saying about Step 5. The step is a little confusing to me as is - do you think you could clarify it a little? That might be where the screenshots are running into trouble. Or if you prefer, you could add your own images to that step, or all of them. What do you think?

I've reinstated the other images for now because they seem to match up. But let me know more detail if you think they're all wrong, and we can work through it. Thanks!

At 22:43, May 20, 2014

AnnaAnna said:

Ah yes, okay. Thanks for reminding me that it was a related issue. No problem - the other steps seem helpful, and hopefully we can get something better on Step 5 too. Thanks for the reply!

I'm not sure if Thom necessarily knows himself, but I can ask again! Can you give me an image example of the one you mean?

AnnaAnna said:

Ah, is that the case you're talking about? I can ask. When I get a dialogue like that on my Mac, I can use Cmd, Shift, and 3 to take a screenshot of the whole screen, and then use my software to take a screenshot of *that* image and add arrows. Does something like that work for you, or not so much?

At 22:53, May 20, 2014

So even if you press Print Screen or Function/Print Screen, it doesn't take a screenshot of your whole screen in that mode?

Hi, Chris,

I believe Matt is a trial editing fellow, or trying out for the position of editing fellow, so generally, his edits would be reviewed by staff at wikiHaus. As a general edit, I would also question the links, but there is a benefit to having actual citations to an item of content as far as improving the credibility of the fact shared in the sentence or step, so I would still be on the fence about that edit.

Thanks!

Hey Chris -- I just had an idea: It's totally up to you, but it might be best to use an edit summary if you undo photo additions, rather than just rolling back. That way you're less likely for it to be reverted, or to get questions like that above. People trust the edit more if they see a reason. Your call though, I know doing that is more steps than just rolling back!

Sorry about that, Chris! Sometimes if the images are removed quickly after upload, the bot thinks that there was just a mistake in uploading, and adds them again. It's annoying, I know! Thanks for rolling it back :)

And I agree about the screenshots there - that'd be a better call. Thanks for catching!

Thanks for your edits on Post a Blog for Business with Microsoft Sharepoint 2010.

Hi, Chris, your edit is correct, but I believe we need to correct the capitalisation in the title so it matches the correct capitalization in the article contents, don't you? I mentioned this to Leah, since the spell checker encourages correcting the spelling in the article content, and we need to remain consistent. Let me know what you think, and if you agree, it might pay to put a {{title}} on pages where the title isn't correct.

Great spellchecking edits, by the way!

The original spelling was correct, as the hairstyle is not a proper noun, but the people are. Ensure you check the context before spellchecking next time.

The original note made more sense in context, remember: more words doesn't make an article better!

Hey Chris!

Hmm well I know the rollback button is sometimes not there when all the edits so far need patrolling - so you should see the new edits on the right-hand side, and probably nothing on the left. But if it's not appearing at other times, there might be some bug or glitch. Can you take a screenshot next time you see that in RCP itself (not just the diff outside of RCP)? That'd be very helpful - thanks!

In the meantime, opening up the article history and rolling back from there if needed is probably the best way to go! Sorry for the workaround!

Thanks for the wikivisual info on the Lebenkuchen. Do you think you might be able to add some more advice/detail between steps 8 and 9? I think part of the problem in getting accurate images is that there's not much information about how to go from the two bowls of initial ingredients to the baking -- like, are the two mixed together, how are the cookies formed, how big are they, etc?

If you look at an article like the chocolate chip cookies one, you'll see more info like, "Drop spoonfuls of cookie dough onto a pre-greased or a lined baking sheet. Leave at least an inch of space between the cookies because they'll spread out when they cook. You can usually fit 12 cookies on a full-sized cookie sheet at a time." That kind of advice could really help both readers and Wikivisual :)

Hi Chris,

Thanks for reaching out about the images that I removed on How to Earn a Barnstar on wikiHow. I removed them because they didn't seem relevant. The last three steps of the article have pictures of someone sitting at a computer (and not of the screen itself); I don't see how those pictures could relate. I appreciate the concern, though - we definitely don't want to remove good images.

There isn't a set rule, since both will work regardless of location. Either way is okay. Personally, I tend to put the parts/methods and then the interwikis, because when interwikibot adds more IWs later on, they go to the bottom -- so if parts/methods is above, then IW, it stays more consistent later. But any location will work, so it doesn't really matter either way. Thanks for checking!

Thanks for your edits on Set Up a Christmas Tree.

Hi, Chris, I defer to Chris Hadley, he is the interwiki looney (I mean liaison, but cannot spell it), but I even see the interwiki people changing things, too. Until I here it from Chris, I just follow the habitual placement, here is his last answer http://www.wikihow.com/index.php?title=User_talk%3ABR&diff=13979621&oldid=13975020 from a week ago. That being said, he said after the text...the parts/methods may not be considered part of the article text? One more thing has evolved, Felicity is adding text to let the interwiki people (the bots don't count) know to place them below her message, I just haven't learned the passage or I would be inclined to add it, too.

You may also notice the scrambling of them, mixing them with relateds, or scattering them elsewhere. This only matters when someone is editing the page and doesn't understand what they are and tamper with them, but that doesn't happen often. Either way, I would rather there were a set place for them, but there really isn't.

Thanks for the message, and I noticed you were doing an awesome job with the refs earlier!

Yep, Reuben is working on the Flickr one - the company updated their API, so we have to reupdate the tool to work with it. Gotta keep up!

Thanks for the video about the sources thing. That has to do with the floating headers that are there for each part/method section (they hide part of the line that you've jumped up to). Hopefully at some point that can be fixed with some sort of adjustment, but with engineering time strapped as it is right now, I think we'll have to live with it for the moment. Fingers crossed in hope that it can be fixed eventually!

Your message said the entire document is in a language other than English, I don't think that that is correct.

Felicity was once the category manager, she put the original category below the ingredients here http://www.wikihow.com/index.php?title=Cook-Chicken-Tenders&diff=6486690&oldid=6240304 , guided editing always does, so I assume if there are ingredients the category should be below them, but the category itself works anywhere on the page, even in the middle of a step.

Chris,
I have started Empower Collaboration in wikiHow and have several versions in my drafts. I had asked Anna earlier if she would delete the title and she said it wasn't hurting anything to keep it around, so... However, my completion date is open and I am in no big hurry to finalize and publish (as you might have surmised).

I am glad you felt the need to express your opinion that the topic is super-dull.
That is just the kind of props that makes this site so great!

Anyway I, personally, think it important to share insightful ways to leverage each person's time and effort on wikiHow while raising the ability of others to contribute.

Hi,

I removed the redirect because Adelaide once sent me a message saying NOT to redirect.:

Adelaide said:

"Yeah, I just needed to move it quickly, so I thought redirecting it would be good (plus, if users go to the previous page, they can be redirected to the current page)."

Thanks for explaining! Unfortunately, I don't think that method of retitling a page is recommended, though. The old article will lose all its views, and I don't think the page histories can be merged. If a page is retitled following the steps in How to Change the Title of a wikiHow Article, the history and views of the page won't be lost. I could be wrong, though--let me know if I'm missing something!

Hey - I loved your article Visit Disneyland in California! As a Southern California native, I've been many times, and I always love it - but having a plan and knowing what's there is crucial to my enjoyment. I've been able to develop that through many visits to the park, but for a first-timer, I can understand how the park might be overwhelming. I thought your article did a great job of walking you through the park, exploring all the best attractions and providing some sense of the flow of the place - I like how you structured the article, where you start at the entrance and walk through each land one at a time. All in all, a great article. I made a few copyedits and added a little bit in the way of tips from some of my own experiences, but for the most part the article didn't need much attention at all. Great job with this one, and I look forward to seeing it grow even more as more and more people share what they love about Disneyland!

Chris, According to the FilmRatings which is supportive to the MPAA, there documentary says that PG should not unsettle a child around age 10. So it is up to parents. This includes PG-13 and R. But thank you for the notice. Please keep PG to ages 10 and up. It is true.

Chris,
Thank you for the notice of reversion on user name. My thinking on that is that username is appropriate when it is a data input field only, but user name is appropriate when it is an entity. Half a dozen of one,...

I am probably over meticulous on such things, but it is not worth going back and forth about. However, it is worth letting RG know that s/he should give notice of reversions in all cases so that understanding of the multiple thinking on various issues spreads.
All your work coming through the RCP queue is top notch!

Hiya. Since you've listed your name under Android on the Community Topic Areas page, I just wanted to get your opinion on an article I tagged as nfd|acc, Speed Up Your Smart Phone in Few Minutes. The article describes using Clean Master, an app on Android, to speed up a phone. I NFD'd it because there is dispute within the Android community that task killers can actually slow down a device rather than speed it up due to the way Android naturally handles RAM consumption. I posted my thoughts on the discussion page and would appreciate yours, as well.

Thanks! :)

IllneedasaviourIllneedasaviour said:

Sounds good. I've used Clean Master for its task-killing abilities. While it did help in getting rid of junk files, it was affecting my phone's performance, so I vouch for the side of the Android community that task killers can do more harm than good.

Yeah, when an article already exists - ie it was made after it was put on the list - the Proposed Redirect page skips it. To my knowledge, it usually removes it from the list, but it could be that since there's only one there right now, it isn't doing so. My guess would be that it'll either clear in time or when more articles are added to the list and processed. But if it doesn't, it could be one of those weird glitches that hangs around until we can get an engineer to clear it out from the back-end somehow. I just wouldn't worry about it - let it live on the list for now :)

It sounds like Mary just thought that you changed the title on the article she started, and didn't realize the title change was on the Chop-Onion-with-a-Vegetable-Chopper and you were just adjusting the link to match. While changing the link isn't totally necessary, as I understand it, it's "best practice" to clean up double redirects and indirect links after you move a page, so it's always something I've tried to do, at least when I have time.

So I think if you just let her know that it wasn't a change on the pressure cooker title - Here is the title change you did do, and here is the history on the article she started, and the only page move I see is hers. So that should clarify things. Don't worry - I'm sure she'll understand :)

I guess it partly depends on whether the one about the list would stick purely to that, or if it would venture into a letter, too (which might then merit a retitle, and earn it a dup). If you think you can make them distinct, I reckon they could stand alone/separate, but you might want to preempt any templating with a note on the Discussion page to clarify the difference.

I have prominent notices on Serendipitee and check it periodically. The last I edited from that account was September 1st.

Since most wikiHowians know me as Serendipitee and I had some thoughts about wikiHow that I felt were worth sharing, I opted to take my place in the widget now rather than wait.

It is sort of a trade-off because people seeing me in the widget might go to Serendipitee and see that I suspended activity there. No biggie either way.

(I see you are creeping up on 50,000 edits! Awesome!)

I've read http://www.wikihow.com/Add-Related-wikiHows and the writing guide. There is no mention of articles having to have links to other articles. I am kind to other articles, when I find one I like. Can you clarify simply: Good Article has links, Bad Article doesn't?

Okie doke - if images are added that don't work, just roll them back and let me know. Thanks!

That widget is a new way for Admins/Boosters/Staff to see helpfulness on articles more easily. Aaron is still working on it, so it isn't 100% done yet, and he might have to remove it again while he works more on it, but so far it's looking pretty cool. I think it'll come in really handy for recognizing when articles need to be better!

OK I am telling you the full story. Last night (might be a day for your timezone) I got an email from a user. So when you get an email through wikiHow then we get some links like to unsubscribe emails, some preferences, etc. etc. Clear till here? Now I have send quoted text will reply "marked as on" in my email account so whatever links wikiHow sent me, they went with the reply to that email. I thought the whole night about it and slept only 3 hours for the user to access my account?? However Adelaide said no and that is the story for it. Now what you think?

Hi Byanko. Thanks for your note! :) I removed the reference because these references to various os versions degrade over time. For instance I was searching today and I found many article references to iOS5, iOS6, etc (and we are at iOS8). I think if we can be general in what we say, our articles will grow seamlessly. Unless there is an exception for a certain version of the OS, it doesn't seem wise to call it out explicitly.

Hi Byankno!

First off congratulations on your above award! You are a very dedicated and quality author. Secondly, I just wanted to let you know that there is an article called Wish Your Happy Birthday that hasn't got a grammar orientated title and it is also written in a language like Japanese or something. I am not sure if there is a separate section for Japanese articles or something but I just wanted to give you a heads-up as you are a NAB. By the way, your journey through wikiHow has been very inspiring and your profile page is very interesting to read about. Anyway as I was saying, you might want to check that article out.

I didn't intend to raise a query, I was playing in the sandbox. If I chose to go into it and write dragoon 50 times, I can if I like. This is a do-cracy isn't it? When I want to ask a question, I will ask someone who I feel can give me a decent answer. I doodled my 'wish' in the sandbox so if the next experienced writer who was trying out formatting or something couldn't think of something to write to test out their formatting on, they would maybe see it and write what you felt unnecessarily obliged to reply to me Sir.

To be honest, I'm not really the person of interest who looks up any of my articles, as I can see them in my user page, I'm just concerned for anyone who searches for something and they find something don't want. For some, searching endlessly for an article doesn't work, they don't want to chase down for something that doesn't seem to exist. I feel as the average Joe to be able to search any article such as my How to Make Your Guitar to Feel like an Ibanez, and have it come up word for word, give our take a few mixed in articles. What I should not get is how to set intonation, how to choose a guitar, how to tune a guitar, how to be a guitar god, etc. This could steer people away from wikiHow, and wind up on other how-to sites, for example eHow.com.

The article used as an example above was deemed a rising star, and thumbed up, (however, unfortunately was not featured), but I'm mainly focused on articles that are not patrolled as you've stated, and I can understand that you need time to complete all articles that come up. I do know that many are mean spirited when they see that an article is uncomplete, just look at How to Set Up a Gibson Les Paul Electric Guitar discussing page, that last comment above mine really set me off, and I deleted the whole entire article in a fit of rage, someone did however undid my edit.

Yup yup Chris, about the Merge issue. I didn't do anything, just posted to the Help Team page with that short message, but if you check the Discussion page for How to Enjoy when Alone at Home (it needs a title change to correct the cap error in the title) you'll see my fully developed idea.

The gist of my philosophy on it is this: Neither article should be merged, but the other article is way too big and some of that info could easily go on the one with the Merge Template, which would cause them both to flourish more.

True that it's not the "exact" or "similar" title policy rule, but that's not the issue with my argument, it's the content. Shouldn't practicality play a role in all of this? By doing it that way, nothing is changed on the Search Engines, so that's not harmed, and folks should find both of them (I think they might already find them both with the right key words), and could choose exactly which focus they want to read about.

Run it by the Merge Team, Admins, Forums, and discuss as needed. That's all I ask. I'm not on the Merge Team. I didn't and won't make any Merge tagged article changes. I don't have time right now, though I've considered it, so I've studied the Merge Policy and Title Policy to the hilt. Thanks for getting back to me.

Is this thang still wurkin'???

PS: Check out this really cool Chrome extension to get the entire array of colors in Hexidecimal! If you try it, be sure to also look at the three option menus on the top right, the "Save to" button (looks like an old floppy disk cartridge) and the gear for settings. It works fine without any changes up there, but they're some pretty sweet options.

I'm going to let Anna and Krystle know, in case they haven't seen it.

Here's the URL to the Chrome Extension. Just paste it into Chrome (it might work on others but I havent tested them yet). Here ya go. Don't put in any http:// stuff, just this line, into the Chrome URL space.

It's built as an HTML file so it isn't harmful or anything and I've used it a long time. It's passed muster with Norton360 too, so it's perfectly safe:

No worries, Chris. It is abundantly clear that you were acting in good faith. With you concentrating on pumping out articles, you probably missed some of the back and forth that would have clued you in to the fact that the same man was behind both user names. It really is a gray area, though, because Bobbyfrank doesn't technically have admin status. I think the staff and other admins accord him admin equivalence, though. (I know I do.)

Hi, Chris,

You did the right thing, I got sick and tired of the political correctness b.s. involved with adminship when wikiHaus decided to run the show unilaterally and I gave up my adminship and other rights. There is something about telling people to kiss my (you know what) that doesn't behoove Ms. Krystle et al. On the other hand, I have redirected several blatant violation titles to the deleted article and only received thank yous for doing so, so either way is perfectly fine with me.

The redirect was a natural reaction to a title that would only be recreated if it is deleted, hence the redirect, but either way you decide to let it go is fine with me, so thanks for the messages!

Hey there,

Just wanted to give you two quick updates about patrolling!

First thing: You can now mark new articles as patrolled without adding templates or fixing them, if you want. We implemented a change which pretty much makes new articles "invisible" until they are boosted. You can learn more here: http://forums.wikihow.com/discussion/12783/step-1-of-operation-article-hatchery-de-indexing-new-articles-by-default/p1

Second thing: There's a bug in RC patrol right now that causes it to stall every 3-4 patrols sometimes. This is really frustrating and we're trying to fix it, but we still need to patrol edits and there's a way to get around it (described here).

Hope this info helps. Let me know if you have any questions! And please patrol if you get the chance! :)

I've already warned her not to curse/swear, and she responded on my talk page saying that she wouldn't do it anymore. I also asked her not to use personal reference, but she told me to let her write her articles in peace. I then responded saying that wikiHow discourages the use of first person language. She then responds again saying that she wasn't born yesterday. I then tell her that I know that she wasn't born yesterday.

I think her landing on the Administrator Notice Board is a good idea if she continues doing what she is doing.

Hey Chris, just wanted to give you a head's up that I have removed the most recent situation off the ANB. I have read the conversations between the three of you, and I was really surprised, in an awkward manner, how it played out. Rather than telling the person the article will in fact be deleted if it's not cleaned up, I would have asked them if they published the article as a mistake or as a test. Give people the link to the Sandbox instead of the Preview suggestion. That's what I would have done. I have also told McDonalds1 that I wasn't going to take action against the person -- it's best to allow them to calm down, rather than them seeing an official warning or block (which deems pretty silly to me when it's just a basic form of frustration from a new editor).

Thanks for trying here. I tried a couple changes on code in Template:Nfd Savior Member Memo‎, and it seems to have worked to fix the user group page overlap (which I like you had attempted to fix prev). I had just noticed a command without a slash to end it and a paragraph break that I removed and added another and added a /div because I've experienced that a doubled end command may be needed occasionally to end some code. Not sure what worked since I did several code changes at once (oops!). Gar

Hi Chris,

Thank you for the help with my article. I wanted to change the title back though-- how do I do that? When I think of "delivering a baby" I think of an actual doctor delivering a baby. I think the phrase "having a child" or "having a baby" is a better fit. Can you help me with changing the title back? Thanks.

At Error: Too many #time calls.

CrittlecratCrittlecrat said:

Generally speaking, at least where I'm from, the term "delivering a baby" has the connotation of a doctor or midwife assisting in the birthing process. Yes, I know there are multiple definitions for "deliver", however, unless speaking of a woman giving birth alone, generally it is said that women "give birth" and doctors "deliver babies".

It is my strong opinion that the term "delivering a baby" is not a good fit. The reason I initially chose the term "having a child" for the title is because it encompasses birthing and raising a child. The advice is designed to help those who get pregnant and plan to raise a child concurrent with attending college.

Perhaps you can change the title to "How to Finish College While Raising a Child", but then again, it may isolate readers who are searching for titles specific to being pregnant while in school.

Hi Chris,

Oh OK. I didn't know the new rules. I know that when we used "parts" for sub-steps the title used to pick up the right words, like "2 methods", or "2 parts". .

So we don't have to add "part 1, 2 3 etc" any more? just add "Parts" at the end of the article? Do I understand yu correctly?

AlabasterAlabaster said:

You were right about my first post to Wikivisual about the images on Supercharge Collaborative Meetings. I didn't look carefully enough. Due to an extensive edit, the original article had diverged from the specific process used by Google Ventures, so I split the article back to this version. As I was moving the images onto the original article, I examined each more closely and identified a lot of disconnects that were actually undoing the concepts laid out in the article, rather than reinforcing them. I was a bit inflexible in mandating that the image correspond to the step precisely, but, ideally, each would also enhance the understanding of what was being communicated. Apparently the individual(s) that created the images did not truly get the steps in the article or the process.

(I have found it to be fairly typical in a technical or a precisely written article that about half of the original Wikivisual images run counter to the step or have unacceptable inaccuracies. Case in point: Dano removed 22 or 23 of the 45 images from Prepare to Fly an Airplane in an Emergency and I removed another two or three plus had one redone.)

I guess my first comment to Wikivisual pertained more to whether the step would be more attractive to the reader, not whether the image helped to understand what was being said or reinforced it. I was definitely hasty in voicing that initial opinion.

No problem, Chris. I have a funny reason for knowing about that Oktoberfest thing.

Someone in my group pushed my husband forward and he ended up having to do the German folk dance! We got some pretty funny pictures out of the deal, and naturally remember the spelling of the word, to this day.

I never said you were late. How many articles do you write in a day? From where do you get new ideas to write about them?

What always discourages me from starting an article of my choice is the historical tag. I have a fear of Windows XP articles becoming a historic article in the next few years(maybe 4-5).

Hi Chris, Thanks for your message. It's good that you've kept up with the research, as maybe some day you'll reconsider buying that car. In the meantime, wikiHow is benefitting from your great knowledge. :) And it's good to know you've found an app that pleases you for your phone. Again, thanks for helping other readers by sharing what you've learnt - you are always very generous with your time and knowledge, and it's much appreciated. Felicity

Thanks for your edits on Put Up an Artificial Christmas Tree. I found a tree-topper pic - does that help? Hope you don't mind, I got inspire to do a little editing here, too, since we just put up our tree! I guess every one is a little different, so I tried to reshuffle a bit to match different kinds of tree. Let me know if you see any probs, though :)

Thanks Chris! It looks like Use Tom's Original wikiHow Article Format has a yellow background on the page itself, so that's probably why it showed yellow in the tool. Unusual formatting!

Thanks for the info about the blank example. I'll do some spellchecking and try to see if it's a universal problem. Cheers!

Hey Chris, I remember it was NFD'd as "joke" by a user. And I doubt it would be extended as it was a "joke". That is why I removed "stub". Quite odd to have "stub" and "nfd|jok" don't ya think? .

Hi Chris, Thanks for asking. On this occasion I am referring to a pattern template, one I hand drew in readiness for photographing and then somehow misplaced. I have some desk cleaning to do shortly, so it'll turn up. If not, I'll redraw it. :)

Hi Chris! The dog tricks tag was a test to see if I could use a filter to spot edits made within a certain category. A few months ago I asked people if they'd be interested in doing a category project and this would be one way we'd keep track of edits. I kept the filter even though there isn't a project so that if one day we do start one, we can use that filter as a model to create others. I hope this explains things!

Chris,

I saw that Anna mentioned the persistent footer I have in Mylinks. As she said in the forums post, I am more than happy to share my set of links. You can adapt and customize them to fit your needs. Also, if needed, I would be happy to help you fine-tune your set of footer links.

The persistent footer is really handy and can be quickly accessed from most of the wikiHow pages without having to scroll the page. I currently have 39 links. Mine use color-coding and I use abbreviations to fit so many links across the bottom of the page, but many more could be added.

This is the start of my Mylinks wiki/html code:

  • <div style = "background-color: #FFFFFF; padding: 20px; border:solid; border-width:2px; border-color:#C6C6C6; padding-left: 50px">{{User:Alabaster/PersistentFooter}}

This is the code for my current persistent footer which is contained on User:Alabaster/PersistentFooter.

And here is my somewhat incomplete explanation of the links and organization in the footer. The footer and explanation are used in conjunction with additional links I place on a newcomer's Mylinks. Together, they are designed to help advanced newcomers come aboard more easily and contribute quickly and more massively. (I still have some thinking and refining to do on this and each time I visit it, I make a lot of changes.)

AlabasterAlabaster said:

You have some neat links in your sidebar and, I can see that, if you drop them into the footer, they would not be nearly so easy to find. Perhaps, though, you could move a portion of them there.
