Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being 'minor'. The only thing that's changed is that you will no longer have them marked as minor by default.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. If you are familiar with the contents of WP:MINOR, and believe that it is still beneficial to the encyclopedia to have all your edits marked as such by default, then this discussion will give you the details you need to continue with this functionality indefinitely. If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 19:40, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 10[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Kurt Austin, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page NUMA. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Please follow this contributor[edit]

Good evening/day,

This is not a real question... As a global renamer, I was asked to perform a renaming on the account Kerri McCoy (which I do not want to notify). It appears that this contributor is endorsing the identity of his/her boss. I have therefore suggested to pick a username which would be more personal. I cannot monitor all the renaming resquests, so could you please keep an eye on this account to ensure the chosen name is correct? Thank you! Litlok (talk) 20:44, 10 April 2017 (UTC)

User hasn't edited for two weeks now, so has probably given up and moved on. I've watchlisted their talkpage and will let you know if they ever return and pick a suitable username. Yunshui  08:24, 25 April 2017 (UTC)

Thank you![edit]

Just wanted to drop a line and say thanks for fulfilling my request, I greatly appreciate it! —LRG5784 (talk · contribs · email) 23:13, 18 April 2017 (UTC)

Query[edit]

Just out of interest, I wondered what the purpose was of this move, Litlok moved page User talk:The Toy Bank to User talk:Christie Maria James: Automatically moved page while renaming the user "The Toy Bank" to "Christie Maria James"

The block summary says that an unblock request is needed for a user name change, which will only be granted if certain undertakings are made. I appreciate that your move doesn't unblock the account, but that leaves me unclear why the move was made. I'm not criticising, juct seeking enlightenment.

FWIW, I've now indeffed Shivam16sethi as a sock of these accounts

thanks Jimfbleak - talk to me? 14:19, 22 June 2017 (UTC)

User:Mz7YamlaHuon[edit]

User:Mz7 blocked the former User:IFIstaff. User:Yamla and I declined the unblock requests. While they say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, I'm not happy with the new username, and going by the user talk page, the user didn't plan it this way either. Was this renaming deliberate? Huon (talk) 22:17, 24 August 2017 (UTC)

Thanks,[edit]

User:HIPPEAS[edit]

Hi there. I just wanted to make an enquiry about something. You recently renamed the user HIPPEAS to Linda at HIPPEAS after they had been blocked for username violation. I'm curious as to A) where that request was made, as I don't see it anywhere and B) why the rename was performed as the name is still promitional and a violation of the username guidelines due to being clear that the account is about a real world organization that the user is trying to promote. The user is still blocked anyway, but I'm curious. Thank you. Canterbury Tail talk 00:12, 12 October 2017 (UTC)

User rename question[edit]

Hi, I see you renamed User:xxx to User:SandraHatman789. The signatures on talk pages of xxx now link to a non-existent page. Is this normal practice? DuncanHill (talk) 22:20, 26 August 2018 (UTC)

DuncanHill: in some cases, especially when privacy is explicitely required by the requester, yes, this is a normal practice among global renamers.
