This wikiHowian has done plenty of work backstage on tasks that often go unnoticed, but are just as important. This award recognizes your humble and continued dedication.

Patrolling, copyright violations and deletions, oh my!

Thank you for all the amazing work you do behind the scenes!

Hello Dave

In the article http://www.wikihow.com/Use-Photoshop-to-Retouch-Facial-Photos where did you get the photo/video from?

I'm the girl in the photo and have the right to know the individual who uploaded the video.

Permission would have at least been appreciated. Please let me know ASAP or I would need to take legal action.

Hello Dave

This is my first time ever doing something like this, I have 2 guinea pigs that were given to my husband and me and we r learning about them and quite fast I made add. I'm trying to learn what to feed them and not to feed them, what to use for there bedding and not to use, I think we will be ok just takes time getting used to taking care of an animal I have never had before. I know I can do it, it just takes practice. Practice makes perfect. Thanks for listening to what I have said and if u have any advice we would love to hear about it.

AnnaAnna said:

Thanks for the wikiVisual note, Dave - much appreciated! I had already responded to the lady, pulled down the videos in question (the current ones are a different version, of a famous actress), and we've been emailing, so no worries - I guess she just wasn't sure where to go for help, so she went everywhere :)

Anyway, I removed the videos and we'll be reviewing where the original came from. Wikivisual generally sticks to public domain/freely licensed or self-made as the basis for image manipulation type screenshots, so I suspect that the original photographer had shared her image somewhere online in the public domain or with a CC license (unfortunately, without her knowledge, it sounds like!), but if there was an error here, we'll address to avoid it in future. Thanks for the heads-up!

Recently i have bought a SPCinternet 853 mp4 player(4Gb) on it. I just put 400 songs (3.5 gb) and 3 .txt files from 1 mb. The problem is that when i want to play the music (on shuffle) each 3 song the device crashes, restarts and comes back to the clock/menu. What can i do to solve this because the concept is really cool but it annoys me the music stops 3 songs. Also sometimes when i press *music* it says 'please wait' and then crashes, and restarts. Hope we can fix this

Hello Hello Mr Crosby,

Funny story, actually - Random as it might be, I was just thinking of you, because I googled something the other day, found myself on Quora, and there you were, with a helpful answer to my query. Turns out you're a pretty helpful guy, eh? :)

Nice to see you around here again!

Glad to have you around for a bit then! I know things might look a bit different here and there, so if there's ever anything I can help with, you know where to find me.

Hi Dave, I am back! sorry to pester you, however I would like your views on this article Use Comfy Birds. I originally demoted it with an nfd adv template because the links go to a commercial site layershift.com. Since then I have had messages from the person who submitted it here and here. Sooooooo, I've removed the nfd template for now. Clearly the article needs work done to it, however I would value your opinion on whether I have taken the right approach on this submission. Thanks, Sarah

Hi Dave, thanks for looking at this one for me. The contributor has seen your responses to me and understands the situation and is considering starting to new articles that are how to Hey! sun is till out, are you in Devon?

You are correct, even though I have a very slight nagging doubt about the marketer possibility - sad world we live in eh? Well here in the sunny MK postcode it is another glorious day, in fact a bit too hot for me.

AnnaAnna said:

Ah fun, when you have a lot of notifications piled up, this version of the Mediawiki notifications system can be kind of a pain, to be honest! The way it works is that the number lingers until you've checked them - if it's 5 or fewer, then using the drop-down menu (and just "seeing" them there - you don't have to click) clears it out, but if it's more you have to go to the notifications page and "see" them there. I'm guessing from your hiatus that you have a lot of older stuff that the system doesn't think you've checked.... I'd try going to Special:Notifications. There, the bold ones are the "unseen" ones, so keep scrolling until they're not bold anymore... I hope it's not too many!

Thanks for your edits on Make Mushroom Muffins.

Just wanted to ask you about this one - it may well not be a joke but it doesn't really look like it's going to provide much help to readers? It doesn't include quantities, temperatures, or time. I reckon by current standards, we'd want to keep this one stubbed... Whatya reckon?

At 16:03, Aug 19, 2016

AnnaAnna said:

Great, I'm so glad that fixed the notifications issue - hope it wasn't too many eons of scrolling :)

Okay sounds good - I'll add the stub. Thanks Dave!

Thanks for sending me the links Dave, I remember reading about content farms when I first started here and was trying to understand how things work here, I even made some notes and then ......whoooooosh, my brain forgot all about using the policy in the manner it was designed for, I guess I was still trying to get to grips with using templates!
