Autopatrolled[edit]

Because of your edits to and time on the wiki, Autopatrolled has been added to your user rights. This lets you bypass most of the abuse filters, bypass the CAPTCHA, and edit more frequently. If you have questions, bleat ask away.

We hope you enjoy your newfound ᴘᴏᴡᴇʀ — and these external tools:

  • Rbutr shows user-submitted rebuttals to your current webpage.
  • Google Scholar Button (Chrome, Firefox) searches your highlighted text in Google Scholar. Easily check academic citations!
  • web.archive.org and archive.is can save permanent copies of webpages. Never lose a crank website or racist Tweet ever again! Bongolian (talk) 04:38, 16 August 2018 (UTC)

Adam Perkins is mad[edit]

See Talk:Adam Perkins. You're the one who created the page on him, so I'm reaching out to you to read what the user has said and I'll let you decide if you should engage with him or not. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 23:16, 19 August 2018 (UTC)

Archiving[edit]

Don't do this, it will be archived automatically in due time. There is literally no need to manually archive pages if they have an archive template. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 23:49, 28 August 2018 (UTC)

You need to do this when you create articles about people[edit]

Say you've created an article about someone called Robert Brown. At the end of the wiki text, you should add this: {{DEFAULTSORT:Brown, Robert}}. That then means that the article is listed on category pages under B for Brown instead of under R for Robert. If you create an article about someone called François Calderón de Maraña, don't include accents in the defaultsort, like this: {{DEFAULTSORT:Calderon de Marana, Francois}}.
