TheDaveRoss blanked own talkpage[edit]

@TheDaveRoss: you blanked your own talkpage. Did you mean to do that? 12:51, 18 November 2016 (UTC)

Yes? Not a lot of love for Flow, and it was starting to annoy me too. - TheDaveRoss 13:00, 18 November 2016 (UTC)
Why is that a question? Did you blank the page because you didn't like public access to that discussion? 13:39, 18 November 2016 (UTC)
It was because the Illuminati told me to. - TheDaveRoss 13:45, 18 November 2016 (UTC)
The ... the Illuminati. Which alleged Illuminati are you talking about? 14:35, 18 November 2016 (UTC)
I have already said too much. - TheDaveRoss 14:38, 18 November 2016 (UTC)
I hope everyone knows I don't believe in the Illuminati. The Illuminati is just an art motif, not a secret society. I thought that was clear. You were joking about the alleged "Illuminati". Do you want to get serious and say something? 14:11, 22 November 2016 (UTC)
"Later, his erratic love-life made him neglectful, and as Weishaupt passed control of the Munich group to Zwack, it became clear that Massenhausen had misappropriated subscriptions and intercepted correspondence between Weishaupt and Zwack." You couldn't have chosen a better secret society to make fun of. 11:41, 4 December 2016 (UTC)


Hi, please don't change {{lb|xy|musici}} to {{lb|xy|music}}, unless the definition isn't about a musical instrument. The former categorizes entries into "Category:xy:Musical instruments", and the latter categorizes into "Category:xy:Music". —Aɴɢʀ (talk) 16:40, 22 November 2016 (UTC)

Sorry, I saw that it was deprecated but I missed the categorization. I will change it to 'musical instrument'. Thanks for letting me know. - TheDaveRoss 16:43, 22 November 2016 (UTC)
I didn't realize it was deprecated. Thanks for letting me know! :) —Aɴɢʀ (talk) 17:01, 22 November 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, as far as I know there isn't a great mechanism for communicating what labels are good and what are bad. - TheDaveRoss 18:00, 22 November 2016 (UTC)

why did you revert my edit[edit]

I dont think was cool to revert my edit Munaah eleven (talk) 19:21, 23 December 2016 (UTC)

Because it was poorly formatted, had spelling errors, and looked protologistic. - TheDaveRoss 15:36, 25 December 2016 (UTC)


Hi TheDaveRoss. I've send you an email. Please take a look and reply. Thanks! Trijnstel (talk) 21:41, 6 March 2017 (UTC)

Module Error in Wiktionary:Wikimedia Tech News/2017[edit]

I believe the cause is things like {{#time:j xg|2017-03-21|{{#if:{{#invoke:Template translation|getLanguageSubpage}}|{{#invoke:Template translation|getLanguageSubpage}}|{{CONTENTLANGUAGE}}}}}}. It looks like #time is eating the error message so it's not visible on the page, but it's still cluttering up CAT:E, which is amassing quite an assortment of misfit odds and ends even without this. Is there anything that can be done about this? Chuck Entz (talk) 03:57, 18 April 2017 (UTC)

I am not sure why the WMF sent messages which included module errors (or if the module errors are due to something local here)... I removed the calls to the modules, since they aren't necessary. - TheDaveRoss 11:24, 18 April 2017 (UTC)


Daily tech news?

Nevermind. Freenode (so very oddly) hates TOR, and I am bored whilst watching system downloads and compilation. <sigh> - Amgine/ t·e 19:59, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

In today's tech news, tech continues to progress at a pace roughly comparable to the long term trend of tech progression. - TheDaveRoss 20:02, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
In a related story, tech news archives grow at the same rate as tech news output, a ratio which "Needs study," says tech news reporters. - Amgine/ t·e 20:06, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
