Second paragraph of introEdit

has incomplete sentences in it. Needs fixing. --Pi zero (talk) 13:25, 4 November 2012 (UTC)

My apologizes. I'm not sure what happened last night.--William S. Saturn (talk) 17:51, 4 November 2012 (UTC)

Embassy attacks reportEdit

This was a sticking point during review of the first summary paragraph. The source verifies that officials reported details, at the time indicated between debates, and this clearly did stir up the issue, but I find nothing to indicate officials at that time were confirming it was planned rather than resulting from protest of the trailer. I'm not at all confident that revelation was at that time; seems like it should have been a week earlier. And the timeline on all that stuff is wildly contentious, looking at the folderol about it in the second Obama/Romney debate. So I tried to make a minimal edit to excise what I could not confirm while keeping all I could. --Pi zero (talk) 00:31, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

Ballot access mapsEdit

The maps disagree greatly with the source. With no confidence in the maps, I've pulled them for now. --Pi zero (talk) 07:03, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

Edit request - disambiguationEdit

{{editprotected}}

Please disambiguate links to ABC News to point to ABC News (United States). Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 02:23, 24 July 2019 (UTC)

@DannyS712: There are lots of these; on my category-work to-do page I've got a link to the complete list (generated by Special:WhatLinksHere), so there's no need to mark them individually. --Pi zero (talk) 03:33, 24 July 2019 (UTC)
@Pi zero: is there anything I can do to help with these? (i.e. is there any user group other than admin that allows trusted users to edit protected pages?) --DannyS712 (talk) 03:35, 24 July 2019 (UTC)
@DannyS712: Not atm. My (overly) grand vision of semi-automated assistants includes a variety of tools that would either directly help admins do various maintenance tasks, or would support a streamlined editprotected process that would be easier for both non-privileged requesters and privileged responders. But none of that exists yet. --Pi zero (talk) 03:56, 24 July 2019 (UTC)
