Wikilink piping

Hello Geopolitician, thanks for your edits. Please see this edit -- I have made several others like it. You have been unnecessarily piping internal links, and it is good practice to use as little code as necessary when adding internal links. Thanks. --1990'sguy (talk) 17:44, 17 August 2018 (EDT)

Thank you, 1990sguy. I always thought that using only brackets would cause them to show up in the WikiText. It always pays to check instead of making assumptions! :) --Geopolitician (talk) 12:27, 18 August 2018 (EDT)
Just so you know, the wiki software assumed you want links when you use bracket pairs. The only ways I know of to get it to show brackets are to either use them unpaired (just on direction, like this [ but not the other) or to enclose it in <nowiki> tags, like this: <nowiki>[bracketed text]</nowiki>. (Personally, I would prefer if you didn't use them unpaired either, since it drives my bot crazy.) Anyway, don't hesitate to ask if there is anything else you ever wonder about! --David B (TALK) 15:50, 18 August 2018 (EDT)

Accidental block

For the record, that Minuteman block was an accidental block bot that was probably triggered by some algorithm. It has nothing to do with any conduct on your part. --1990'sguy (talk) 11:19, 13 September 2019 (EDT)

I found out about the block after it got lifted, and I already knew it was a bot before you commented here, so no worries. Thank you.--Geopolitician (talk) 13:08, 13 September 2019 (EDT)
Sorry about didn't like the tone of your language, and particularly your use of the "c-word." It shouldn't give you any more trouble. --DavidB4 (TALK) 13:12, 13 September 2019 (EDT)
That's okay, and thank you. I've dealt with less tolerant bots on other sites in the past. A few minutes ago, I posted on Disqus and the comment was automatically blocked because it contained the word "kill." It wasn't even used in a literal context. It was used in a symbolic context, such as "gun control will kill the Republic."--Geopolitician (talk) 21:34, 13 September 2019 (EDT)
For the record, I didn't see that DavidB4 lifted your block, so I thought you had to sit through the whole 1 hour 30-minute block. --1990'sguy (talk) 13:24, 13 September 2019 (EDT)
I was only blocked for about ten minutes, and I wasn't even online when it happened. No worries. --Geopolitician (talk) 21:34, 13 September 2019 (EDT)
