While we're glad to have you here, please not that this is not just a clearing house for external links. If you contribute an article, please make it an actual article. -- GWO

I understand. Is it considered better to have nothing at all rather than a link? -- RB

Yes, in general. External links aren't entries, but they might look like one on a page count, so it is confusing. --MichaelTinkler

Fair enough. -- RB


Now I have to decide whether or not to have a crack at Oor Wullie. He might stand out a bit from the rest of the stuff I've been writing, though that's never stopped me before. I suppose it will depend on whether or not I can find any history on him on the web. It's been a wee while since I've read the comics myself.... -- Paul Drye

I must admit I found Oor Wullie a bit hard going. But for some reason I kept coming back. Must have been that bucket. (And if that isn't reason alone for a page, I don't know what is.) -- RB


In an effort to clean up the main namespace, I've moved your old userpage to User:Robert Brook/old, as there's some edit history you might want to keep. Otherwise just delete it. --fvw* 12:13, 2004 Dec 31 (UTC)

Welcome...[edit]

Noticed your message on User_talk:Mrsteviec, just thought I'd say welcome to the (informal) guild of Inner London contributors/clean-up crew. I'm mostly working on Hackney and Islington boroughs (if you think Bermondsey needs work, see Stoke Newington, that needs a total rewrite that I keep putting off, not to speak of Shoreditch and Hoxton). I worry about stepping on toes too, but there are a number of us you can ask if you're not sure. I'm pretty new, but there's also User:Mrsteviec and User:Justinc who does a lot on Camden and Islington. Tarquin Binary 11:27, 19 October 2005 (UTC)

Thank you! -RB

Your old talk page[edit]

Hey Robert, I've moved your very old user talk page to User talk:Robert Brook/Old, to preserve the old history. I would try preserving the history of your user page, but at the moment it's corrupted because of bug 19990. Hope you don't mind. Graham87 04:56, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

I've fixed the history of your user page. Graham87 11:16, 28 August 2009 (UTC)
And ditto for your user talk page. Graham87 06:55, 20 December 2010 (UTC)

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) 17:05, 15 March 2011 (UTC)
