wikiquote searches


Hi, thanks for posting good info for editing Wikiquote on my Talk page, especially Village pump. In my keyword searches for Wikiquote it seems like Google/Bing search engines require very specific keyword search to list Wikiquote at all. For example, using personal name "charles darwin" will score entry of Charles Darwin high but not quotes. Do you know why is that? It'd have to be more specific search, such as "charles darwin," to show Wikiqute for that person; other websites that provide collections of people's quotes have no issue. Let me know what's the story behind it; thanks; Pradeepwb (talk) 19:05, 27 October 2015 (UTC),Reply

VP: Remove over-broad spam blacklist entry


Hi Cirt,

Per WQ:VP#Remove_over-broad_quotes.com_spam_blacklist_entry, could we modify the spam blacklist to avoid over-broad matching? Thanks!

Could I get your opinion as to whether my citation fixes are "subtle vandalism" or if is rather Daniel Toms uncivil and disruptive behavior warrants correction?


[1] I have a very long and sorted history with Daniel Tom, and although they normally have some basis for their reverts, this is a very clear cut matter of whether my recent citation fixes are correct or not, which I believe they are as every single style guide suggests ending citations with a period and my other grammatical fixes such as italicizing titles and using commas between entries (or periods in the case of the APA) are also near universally implemented. I've been copying their language substituting meat back for incompetent as I assume all editors are made out of meat, while incompetence is in fact a legal term.

Sorry for bothering you with this mess, I thought being a wiki gnome was welcomed, but I guess not. I wouldhave at least liked knowing what I did wrong from DT, but I guess I don't deserve that as "the most incompotent editor ever". CensoredScribe (talk) 18:04, 27 June 2016 (UTC)Reply
