Need some help here :-)[edit]

Hello Jeff, would you know if there are examples of sentences where "an huge" is used instead of "a huge"? I simply ask this because of this description: responsible for an huge health crisis. Thank you so much for your time. :-) Lotje (talk) 13:54, 23 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Lotje: There are not, it should be "a huge".   — 🇺🇦Jeff G. please ping or talk to me🇺🇦 09:59, 24 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

List markup[edit]

Your edit here is detrimental to people who use assistive software, such as the sightless, because it makes your comment a separate list in the HTML markup to those that precede it. en:WP:LISTGAP touches on this, but in short you are putting extra steps in the way of them hearing your comment read out by their software. Please undo it. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 21:01, 24 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Pigsonthewing: I was replying to the OP. Bullets are not meant for that purpose, see en:WP:THREAD.   — 🇺🇦Jeff G. please ping or talk to me🇺🇦 21:06, 24 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'm very familiar with that section, and indeed the one following it, where you will find:

Some pages (deletion discussions, for example) use asterisks (*) rather than colons for indentation. Generally, colons and asterisks should not be mixed; if you see asterisks are being used in a page, use them as well.

The several !votes preceding yours all used asterisks. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 00:25, 25 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
