Reverts to Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey
On the Wikiquote page for Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, I have responded to your second edit as of 22:58, 12 April 2017 by inserting a period after each episode number is listed in parentheses at the end of each of the thirteen episode image's captions. I didn't have the periods after each parenthetical episode number because they are not complete sentences requiring a period. However, I don't really care if the periods are in there or not. Now that they are, I'm curious - did you insert a period at the end of the caption for the Crab Nebula image because the syntax required it, or simply as a grammatical or visual formatting preference?
Also, you asked on my talk page, "2 Captions is an error, did you intend that one of them was an alt?" In the caption syntax for the first image on the page (the Helix Nebula, or NGC 7293) and the second image (the Crab Nebula), I've eliminated the two extra pipe characters and two duplicate names ("|NGC 7293" and "| Crab Nebula"). Let me know if this failed to address the reasons for your edit as of 21:15, 12 April 2017 and your first edit as of 22:58, 12 April 2017.
Thank you for pointing out ways that this page can be improved. Sorry it took me a number of days to respond to your question.
- I don't have a compatible browser, which was why I asking. Theregexp's for the search and replace fields should be obvious though based on my recent efforts. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 11:35, 14 September 2020 (UTC)
- Generally, I think MASSIVE edits like this are best done by an existing AWB user or a bot, that can be clearly monitored. I'll puase until there's a solution. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 11:37, 14 September 2020 (UTC)
Hi ShakespeareFan00: I see you around a lot cleaning lint, so was wondering if you would be interested in helping me recruit a new wikiquotian. If so, could you help User:Guy Macon on his user page - I have no idea what lint is, but maybe you can figure it out. Thanks in advance, Ottawahitech (talk) 04:27, 29 December 2020 (UTC)
