It's a false positive caused by the filter detecting that you were adding a string of CAPITAL letters (i.e., PRINT). It doesn't detect this as a removal of a space, but a removal of a whole line and replacement with a new line. QuiteUnusual (discusscontribs) 08:25, 13 September 2019 (UTC)

Auxiliares de Conversación, Language and Culture Assistants in Spain Survival Guide (filter log)
Description
Add links to free activities that teachers in the program could use. All of these activities (except for the podcast) are linked on the program's actual page- which the wikibook sites as the source- i.e., " All this information can be found by going to: (website)". I thought adding these activities to the book would save people a click, and because I haven't seen the podcast mentioned anywhere, figured I would do so here.

Additionally- I didn't know that "linkspamming" was a thing.

This is used for setting the working directory, also known as the current directory. The directory name is specified exactly like in DOS and long file names aren't supported. For example:
 CHDIR "C:\DOS"
Note that this doesn't change the current drive and every drive has its own working directory. You can set the current drive like this:

Interesting and thought provoking, particularly the history of tools creating tools. As for the future, have you looked at fab lab? CNC machines and 3D printers might make the booting processes easier and faster. Also how about genetically engineered crops to produce better raw materials? Some sort of nano-cellulose with organic resin binder might give a very high strength to weight ratio material. This type of composite could be used a room temperatures and replace metal for many applications.

Thanks again.

I linked the official website to download the drivers, which made the guide a lot easier. This also made the drivers easier to install for users who use different operation systems on their calculator (because now you don't need a calculator to install the USB drivers).

I also removed the 'resetting of the calculator' step from the 'driver' segment, because it has nothing to do there since a calculator is not needed anymore. I did place the 'resetting of the calculator' as the first step though, since it's a crucial step.

New editors adding links are most often (90%+) here to spam, so adding links is blocked.

wiki/HTML_5_Programming_and_Web_development/HTML_5_Elements (filter log)
Description

Upon seeing an incorrect output of rendering an example of html tag usage, I corrected what should have been shown as a result. It had several incorrect capitalizations, omitted a word, failed to bold the text, and left off the period at the end. After previewing the fix, I summarized this fix in the field for titling the edit, and finalized the edit.

When looking back at the output from previous tag examples, I noticed another capitalization error of a single letter of a two word output. A very minor error of a single miscapitalization. I similarly clicked on the toolbar to edit this one, fixed the single letter, previewed it, and summarized the edit to title it, and finalized it.

I got incorrectly captured as attempting to try something worded similar to testing trial edits from the toolbar. And I saw the hint that I should have tested edits using the Sandbox instead. Which I had used just previously to verify what capitalization should have been output from a ‘b’ tag example.

Further, attempting to report this false positive continued to trigger an error. It looks like I am unable to be allowed to publish an edit, even if that is how to report a false positive.

ugggg! Disgusting that my false positive cannot be reported because it contains the url of the page I edited, which was requested to fill out this report, and was flagged as ‘vandalism’ for spamming urls all over this wiki. JUST TRYING TO FILL OUT THIS REPORT OF A FALSE POSITIVE! *breathes heavily*

Hi 209.159.230.169 have you thought about getting an account? You'll find it far easier to edit as there will be less edit filters, especially after you become autoconfirmed. Just a thought. Jules (Mrjulesd) 17:09, 20 September 2020 (UTC)
