Done! Thanks for the help. Illegitimate Barrister 05:19, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

I am back.[edit]

I actually had to leave a bit earlier, but now am back. I have tried reverting the Bush article using the HISTORY, which is the simplest way to correct massive vandal attacks such as have been going on, but you have been editing it piecemeal too rapidly for me to do that. Find the point in the history BEFORE the vandalism, press COMPARE and then revert to that. ~ Kalki·· 06:19, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

Damn it, I knew I should've left it alone. Well, I'll try to manually get rid of the vandalism as much as I can. Regards, Illegitimate Barrister 06:25, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

Image placement[edit]

I am just back from a brief excursion and have noticed you have been moving images, which is a desirable activity on many of the pages, but there are some things about their placement I have learned from experience on different browsers, computers, smartphones and other mobile devices. To move most or all images in a section to the top of that SECTION seems to be the best strategy for easy editing of them and the text, and they usually display well, but moving more than one or two images to the top of the PAGE above the first section is a problem on mobile devices (which I generally hate to use for wiki-work). On mobile devices this results in a long column of images BEFORE even the introductory text, which clearly is not desirable. I will probably be around much of the day, and able to do a bit of work here, and will probably show you what I believe is a more desirable arrangement on at least a couple of them soon. ~ Kalki·· 15:12, 24 January 2015 (UTC)

I understand. However, the reason I've been putting all the images at the very top is that doing otherwise would leave just a bunch of empty blank space at the bottom, which looks ugly on desktops and other similar devices. It looks better to have thumbnails surrounded by text, in my opinion. Regards, Illegitimate Barrister 15:15, 24 January 2015 (UTC)


Just a suggestion: it would be helpful if you could use edit summaries more. (It's not mandatory, of course, but it is good wiki "etiquette".) Cheers ~ DanielTom (talk) 16:49, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

Alright, my bad. I'll try to do that more often. Regards, Illegitimate Barrister 16:49, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

Abraham Lincoln[edit]

excuse me, but can you add that bit about the nightmare he had, of his own assassination? He told frends about it prior to it actually happening. check the wikipedia page, it talks about it. Thanks, everything here is wikilinked to make it easier for ya to go to the article I hope thats okay. Bye

If you can give me a source, date, and the quote itself, I'll be more than happy to add it for you. Regards, Illegitimate Barrister 15:24, 29 January 2015 (UTC)
