Sighting[edit]

Don't forget to sight edits like this! That's the second time in a row. It's no longer done automatically when a reviewer edits and already-sighted article; in fact, it hasn't been for some time. BRS (Talk) (Contribs) 11:43, 7 February 2015 (UTC)

Oh, am I allowed to do that? --Rayboy8 (my talk) (my contributions) 11:44, 7 February 2015 (UTC)
...Of course. BRS (Talk) (Contribs) 11:47, 7 February 2015 (UTC)
Sorry about that, I didn't realise. So I just hit the 'Accept revision' button to sight the edit? --Rayboy8 (my talk) (my contributions) 11:53, 7 February 2015 (UTC)
That's how it's done, yes.

Be very careful, when sighting your own edit, that somebody else didn't make another edit that you would also be sighting (the other edit would be visible in the diff, and it would say something about some number of intermediate edits not shown). Though it might sound wildly unlikely, I've found it can happen maybe once in a blue moon (and blue moons come around about once every fifteen months :-).

Adding your Wikinewsie category is thoroughly uncontroversial, and doing it with HotCat makes it well nigh inconceivable to accidentally do something different than intended; so, no problem whatsoever with self-sighting in that case. :-)  --Pi zero (talk) 12:29, 7 February 2015 (UTC)
