Typos Quake Before Me,(That is how I find them)

My pleasure! Remember, I do the easy stuff to save you for the tricky manoeuvres. Some of the ones I got today were oddities caused by the typeface of the particular mimeo machine they used. Don't feel bad at all!

I have been linking the References directly to the specific issues of the zines, etc. Should I continue? Theory is, it makes it quicker for the reader to find the proper page. Bobdog54 (talk) 22:03, 14 March 2016 (UTC)

Yes, it's a very difficult typeface to translate. I've tried a number of different things with The LOC Connection -- some more successful than others. I love the fact you have my back on this, Bobdog. Regarding direct links to specific issues, I agree it is much neater and much more helpful when they go right to the issue. If you're up for continuing, I'm all for that plan. --MPH (talk) 22:43, 14 March 2016 (UTC)
I stand in appreciation of all of the work that you have done recently. Should I send you some soothing eyedrops and equally soothing chocolate?
I shall continue as I have been dancing through to this point. For variety, I dip into the list of stories from way back when, work on that list and then swing over to the recent changes. Keeps me from getting bored. Take care.** Bobdog54 (talk) 19:53, 15 March 2016 (UTC)
Eyedrops, yes. A cold pack for my wrist would be good, too. :) --MPH (talk) 20:13, 15 March 2016 (UTC)
My hands are having sympathy pains! Would you like me to take a look at the West-Con pages? I can alternate between The Clipper Ship and the Conference. That Clipper Ship guy sure does like to whine! He has a very unique outlook on life, by golly. Be kind to yourself. Bobdog54 (talk) 21:50, 27 April 2016 (UTC)
You mean MediaWest? Why don't you hold off a bit on those; I'm doing a major revamp and organization which will take me a few weeks, and then I'm going to add a lot more -- I don't want to have you do work you don't need to as they're still in a big state of flux. When I get to a sort-of stopping place, I'll let you know and then you can work your magic. --MPH (talk) 22:21, 27 April 2016 (UTC)
Good Interpretation Skills there - I will await your command :-) Bobdog54 (talk) 22:27, 27 April 2016 (UTC)

I can look at that article

Doing this work keeps me off the streets and out of trouble. :) Bobdog54 (talk) 20:24, 12 April 2016 (UTC)

Would you have a look at the new material?

I've started adding some new material to Queen (Dragonriders of Pern story). I haven't really done much yet on the discussion of FFA/Coal wank. However, I've added the exchange of comments on AO3 on which most of the wank was based.

You said you'd take a look over my shoulder as I wrote this up. If you have time...? --Greer Watson (talk) 11:05, 14 April 2016 (UTC)

I will, Greer. --MPH (talk) 11:55, 14 April 2016 (UTC)

New changes!!

The thumbnails are now appearing really big... I know there is an upgrade, so I am just going to assume it's a temporary blip and that they will go back to the size they were rather than trying to adjust... Hope that's right. I'm in the chatroom, but nobody else is :( --Aralias (talk) 20:12, 26 April 2016 (UTC)

Icon Re-Size

But you make a darn cute monster! Bobdog54 (talk) 19:48, 30 April 2016 (UTC)
It's the little purse that does it. --MPH (talk) 20:07, 30 April 2016 (UTC)
That gave me the most amazing mental picture...it is definitely the little purse. I almost spit my lunch all over the screen. thank you for that. Bobdog54 (talk) 20:12, 30 April 2016 (UTC)

FF.net and a "safe heaven"

Good evening! I have been wandering around in my brand new gardener boots and ended up in Fanfiction.net. I changed the phrase 'safe heaven' to 'safe haven' and if you wrote this and I am wrong, I revert myself in embarrassment. This is much shorter than the original tortured explanation. (god, it stinks being new) Bobdog54 (talk) 01:04, 5 May 2016 (UTC)

While "safe heaven" is rather poetic, you are correct it was a typo. Thank you for fixing it. And welcome aboard as a new gardener. :) --MPH (talk) 11:51, 5 May 2016 (UTC)

I thank you Fourth Times

Thanks for taking care of that. Lord only knows what I was doing wrong. Bobdog54 (talk) 01:02, 13 May 2016 (UTC)

Descriptions of Art/Covers?

Do I remember reading something about providing descriptions of artwork with a level of detail "Like it was a friend sitting next to you"? Should I start paying attention and doing that with the zines that I come in contact with? Thanks Bobdog54 (talk) 17:03, 14 May 2016 (UTC)

Certainly. It would be a good addition. --MPH (talk) 11:05, 15 May 2016 (UTC)

Sorry about that -

Wasn't using my brain and looking closely at context. I did not erase the storm pilot redirect page so shouldn't that have been a blue link without the need to make a new page? Certain pages like the Bigot/Saint page are linked to the Poe/Cameron page through multiple pages/redirects. Do you know why that might be? Bobdog54 (talk) 20:54, 17 May 2016 (UTC)
