Thank you thank you[edit]

I'll be here all week :) I like "big" projects like that. Thanks for the barnstar. --User:Woohookitty Disamming fool! 02:24, 3 March 2012 (UTC)

MIEE[edit]

I've undid your edit, because Moscow Institute of Electronic Engineering is also disambig. Is there another solution besides [1]+[2]? Alex Spade (talk) 12:00, 3 March 2012 (UTC)

Cross Keys, etc[edit]

I'm not very experienced with moving pages; I'm still not sure exactly what all you did to accomplish this merge. Any chance you could exercise your skill by moving Talk:Cross Keys to Talk:Cross keys? Thanks!! YBG (talk) 07:09, 4 March 2012 (UTC)

  • Done. Cheers! bd2412 T 13:42, 4 March 2012 (UTC)

Radio stations in Invercargill‎[edit]

Would like your opinion on Radio stations in Invercargill‎. This was originally List of radio stations in Invercargill‎, I had changed to List of radio stations in Invercargill, New Zealand‎ and a new editor changed to the current Radio stations in Invercargill‎. My understanding (as limited as that may be) is that my move was proper. I tried to explain why it needed to be "list of" on Talk:Radio stations in Invercargill‎, to which the editor just deleted my talk on that page. I left a polite for firm message on his talk page (trying not to bite), but I think it would be simpler if an admin with experience in this simply weighed in, and made a determination. This is your punishment for having a fruitful and polite discussion with me on Lists of extinct species. ;) Dennis Brown (talk) 20:24, 11 March 2012 (UTC)

  • He has deleted the no ref tag on the page once, and deleted his own talk (which just tells me he has been here). He doesn't seem very interested in communicating about the issue, and more into hiding the flaws. He is new, so I try to cut him some slack, but maybe a friendly explanation on his talk page would help, to keep him from getting discouraged. I've had to tag the article, revert two of his deletions, and CSD a logo he uploaded from a radio station's website. He probably won't be all that receptive to me at this stage. Dennis Brown (talk) 18:08, 12 March 2012 (UTC)

Biodiversity of New Caledonia, paleobotany forgotten[edit]

Hello, could you to work on this article, please? Biodiversity of New Caledonia. It is a very important archaic species group in Paleobotany and evolution.85.251.99.49 (talk) 08:15, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

Hatnote tip[edit]

FYI, {{Other people|Aaron Hart}} produces practically the same output as {{For|other people by this name|Aaron Hart (disambiguation)}}. --R'n'B (call me Russ) 14:23, 26 March 2012 (UTC)

Talk:Demographics of Greater China[edit]

Hello BD2412. Thanks for closing the move request. SchmuckyTheCat had deleted some of my comments and I have attempted to add my comment back. Jeffrey (talk) 15:34, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

  • Thanks for letting me know. Cheers! bd2412 T 15:47, 2 April 2012 (UTC)
    • Actually, Jeffrey had been edit-warring over his adding of inappropriate tags to the discussion for days. Despite multiple warnings and a 3RR report, he persisted and altered the discussion after closing. He's been blocked for 48 hours in response. NULL talk

  • Pleasure, BD2412. Unfortunately it was misidentified as edit warring by those who got a political agenda. Could you help review it? Jeffrey (talk) 18:33, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
  • Jeffrey, having looked over the edit history of this page, and some of your other recent edits and comments (notably your interaction at User talk:EdJohnston), my impression is that you have a very strong POV regarding naming conventions for China and its subtopics, and that your interactions here reflect an effort to press this POV on Wikipedia. bd2412 T 15:26, 6 April 2012 (UTC)
  • I just meant to restore my own comments that Schmucky and Null deleted for no reason. There's no POV issue here in this particular case. It's all about Wikiquette and disruptive behaviours. My POV is irrelevant. Jeffrey (talk) 18:45, 6 April 2012 (UTC)

Pro se[edit]

Hey, thanks for the comment on the Pro se page. To some extent, I agree with the point you make. I've got a couple of worries about the editor and the material though. The editor is almost certain a sock of User:Kay Sieverding based on timing, topic, familiarity with Wikipedia, use of court rulings over find solid secondary sources and general editing style. My worries about the material I think I mostly covered on the talk page. To a large extent, that's a common failing with Kay - she'll latch onto a particular ruling and won't go any further into it. In this specific instance, the ruling she's using was vacated when the court decided to hear the case en banc. I know there is a lot of information about pro se in good secondary sources - law journals, legal expert blogs, new articles, etc. To a large extent, I wouldn't mind Kay returning as long as she stuck only to secondary sources and avoided the soap-boxing that will sometimes creep in with her posts. How can I best handle this? I'm somewhat worried that the entire limits section of the article will end up dominated by primary sources (specific rulings).

User:Scottdelaney1067[edit]

An old friend of yours and mind, from List of radio stations in Invercargill. He's been asking a lot of questions and I've tried to answer them. Odd in themselves. But someone brought his contribs to my attention, which has raised some comp. issues. I had asked another admin a week ago (was the suggestion of the other editor) but no reply. Could you briefly look at his talk then his contribs? Something isn't quite right, at least to two of us who have looked. His questions were followed by talkback requests on my page, so directed to me. Dennis Brown (talk) 01:16, 10 April 2012 (UTC)

His edit history seems to me to be fairly typical of a newbie figuring things out by working through those areas with which he is most familiar. bd2412 T 01:56, 10 April 2012 (UTC)
It looks like he's also delving into the unfamiliar. This edit looks very peculiar. As do the series of edits to sockpupeteer template transclusions... Mojoworker (talk) 06:09, 10 April 2012 (UTC)
  • I think keeping an eye out is a good idea, personally. Again, it just looks "odd" to me, and my Spidey sense is tingling. Dennis Brown (talk) 00:49, 12 April 2012 (UTC)

Potsdam, New York[edit]

Hi bd2412 again. Potsdam, New York is on this month's DAB Challenge list and on 'your' villages within towns list. Can you process this one before someone goes disambiguating links to this one? Greetings LittleWink (talk) 18:31, 13 April 2012 (UTC)

Done, thanks! bd2412 T 21:46, 13 April 2012 (UTC)

Haslet[edit]

Hi. Although pickled onion or pickled cucumber could be eaten with Haslet, I think the sentence implies it's more usual to have pickled and spiced mixed veg as an accompaniment, which it is - there's no cite in the article for any of this of course. Perhaps a better dab would be to Pickling or to Relish - or to Chutney which is now not purely Indian as its article would have us believe. Best, Acabashi (talk) 10:11, 15 April 2012 (UTC)

Changed to pickling, as that will cover all possibilities. Cheers! bd2412 T 15:35, 15 April 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation page[edit]

Hi BD2412 – I saw you're an admin that works with disambiguation pages so I'd like your help if possible. Could you please give some input to Johnny Cash (disambiguation)? My edits have been reverted and I've put the brakes on editing there due to encroaching on WP:3RR. I've reasoned that disambiguation pages are for similarly-named articles, regardless of content, but it seems that some other editors are using this page as more like a category for Johnny Cash related topics. Thanks! matt (talk) 23:40, 20 April 2012 (UTC)

Seems to have been addressed. Cheers! bd2412 T 03:28, 21 April 2012 (UTC)

Ellis Bent[edit]

You dabbed to Richard Atkins (New South Wales) no idea where this should go, or even why I saw it - just thought you should know. Rich Farmbrough, 16:09, 1 May 2012 (UTC).

  • It should go to an article on Richard Atkins (New South Wales), who was governor of the colony before Bent, and for whom we have no article. Governors of New South Wales are notable, so there is no question that this article should be made. bd2412 T 16:12, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Administrator Barnstar Hires.png The Admin's Barnstar
Just wanted to give you Kudos on closing the AfD on the Obama-Biden campaign slogan. I thought you did a great job explaining the reasoning for the redirect and the merits of the comments that were made in the most neutral way possible. Wildthing61476 (talk) 18:17, 8 May 2012 (UTC)

Thanks! bd2412 T 18:39, 8 May 2012 (UTC)

Don't let it go to your head....[edit]

but you're famous. Nathan T 23:54, 8 May 2012 (UTC)

They have it all wrong. At the time the article was deleted, all of the substance of the page was already contained at the redirect target. If other information about the slogan merits inclusion in the encyclopedia, that discussion will take place with respect to the redirect target. Also, I did consider the arguments raised by the anon and new voters, and determined that their concerns were directed towards the information being presented rather than the title where it was presented. bd2412 T 01:05, 9 May 2012 (UTC)
I love how the Times off the bat tries to stir up trouble with the "Wikipedia kills article..." headline. You did a great job as I said before with the redirect and the explanation as to why it was done. Wildthing61476 (talk) 12:32, 9 May 2012 (UTC)
Thanks again. There are things that I could have explained in greater detail, but there's little point to going back to it now. The Times could have mentioned also that there is a process for requesting a review of an AfD closure, if an editor thinks that it was done wrong. Cheers! bd2412 T 14:21, 9 May 2012 (UTC)
Agree that you did a great closing on this AFD. Neutrality is getting criticized on this closing of Forward (generic name of socialist publications).[3] Wish he had been as careful as you were. While likely not his intent, he unfortunately comes off more like a partisan arbitrator rather than an unbias administrator - too bad. Morphh (talk) 15:04, 9 May 2012 (UTC)

Coincidence[edit]

   Re Coincidence and User talk:Jerzy#Coincidence and talk:Coincidence#Split and Dab.
   I'm pretty worn out, but i think i should respond here as well, before going off-line.
   Please recall that NPA is about communications relating to the project's content vs. relating to editors themselves, and that the relationship of the content of an edit to guidelines on content is what bears on whether the content should be reverted: those decisions are about the content itself, not credit deserved or offense given. Your mention of whether "common courtesy" was observed in my decision process is a personal attack (tho i doubt an intentional one) (whether you are accurate or not in saying it was missing) bcz your being right in that claim would not help justify your reversion of the edit.
   You may also want to recall "what a tangled web we weave" even by inadvertent imprecision about others' acts: when for whatever reason you indicate my action was an (unimplemented) proposal, at best you've complicated our colleagues' comprehension of the matter, by putting me in the position of having not only to explicitly contradict you, but even to mention otherwise irrelevant details that your account implicitly contradicted.
   (There's more that could be said about when an editor should proceed, and the hierarchy of WP behavior standards, but what we've had to say is IMO already kinda too much, at least for now.)
   Thanks for your attention to this attention-starved article.

Romanian names[edit]

Hey, I was wondering what you meant by "in this case this is doubly required per WP:TWODABS" here? I've pointed the redirect back to the album because I think Romanian Names is a marginally more likely intended target than Romanian name, but I could be convinced otherwise. – hysteria18 (talk) 21:03, 21 May 2012 (UTC)

WP:TWODABS says that if there are only two meanings, there should not be a disambig page at all, the ambiguity being resolvable with a hatnote. I suspect that the album is more obscure than the naming idea, but I won't press the issue. Cheers! bd2412 T 22:38, 21 May 2012 (UTC)

Tropical plants[edit]

Hello, How are you? I need your help. I thank you your help in the articles and I hope you help me again in future. I ask you: Can you find more people willing writing in tropical trees, genera and families? I ask you if you could enlarge some articles making better known this group of trees in Wikipedia, adding links to genera and families and writing information and asking people if they are interested in writing about topics as tropical trees articles, tropical forest articles or botanical or biodiversity articles. Do you know Wikipedia forums that could be interested about these type of articles? They are welcome too. I thank you very much.

I am from Spain and my mother language is not English language. Many country side areas, and Natural areas and Living beings are in Countries where population cannot collaborate with Wikipedia, but their Natural World and its highly economically valuable species are very important too in the human knowledge and developtment of the mankind. People should have information because these matters are important, not just a curiosity only. This unknow world is from Poles to ecuator, in unoccupied oceanic areas closely to Europe, in Deserts as Sahara, or whatever. But to me the main aim is to gather the abundant information disperse about living communities and living beings that have existed for millions of years because they are disappearing and in 20 years they will are not longer exist.Curritocurrito (talk) 12:00, 26 May 2012 (UTC)

Bad disambiguation at Petr Čech[edit]

Hi BD2412. Just to let you know you introduced bad disambiguation "fixes" with this edit. They have already been repaired, this message is just as a courtesy. Regards - Cloudz679 09:59, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Just to be clear, it was a spacing error rather than a disambiguation error. Cheers! bd2412 T 17:20, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for your help regarding disambiguation policy on radiation poisoning. Could you share your thoughts on what I just wrote on Talk:Radiation poisoning? Thank.--Yannick (talk) 02:29, 9 June 2012 (UTC)

Bluefin tuna[edit]

You recently changed the disambig page template tag on Bluefin tuna to an SIA, which I don't think is appropriate in this instance. The tuna article is not a list, it's exactly a dab page, it follows the dab page format, and while it's tempting to call all sorts of tuna lists of types, a cursory review of the articles show's they're all distinct species with very different habitats, characteristics, and ranges (and endangered statuses). But I haven't changed anything yet, I'd like to hear your thoughts. Shadowjams (talk) 18:41, 9 June 2012 (UTC)

They are all species of tuna. Distinctness of habitat or range doesn't make them ambiguous, and this page could easily be expanded with a chart to tease out those exact distinctions. There is a very simple test for this, which I call the "I'm an expert" test. It goes like this: could a person reasonably represent themselves as an expert in [term], without having to be an expert in multiple fields of knowledge? A person could be an expert in "bluefin tuna" without needing to specify a particular species so designated. Compare that to a person claiming to be an expert on "Mercury" or a "battery" expert. bd2412 T 18:56, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
That's an interesting point... could you point me to some more background on this SIA tag? I've been doing dab page formatting for a long time (not as extensively as you apparently) and I hadn't happened upon this particular distinction. In my experience, there are thousands of dab pages that need to be recategorized in this case. Is the SIA tag new, or has its meaning changed? I'm just confused that I've never noticed it before. Shadowjams (talk) 19:06, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
Sure, it's laid out at WP:SIA, which states that the SIA tag is to be used for different things of the same type. Here we are talking about species of fish, definitely the same "type" in line with the examples given there. bd2412 T 19:11, 9 June 2012 (UTC)

Super Disambiguator's Barnstar.png The Super Disambiguator's Barnstar
The Super Disambiguator's Barnstar is awarded to the winners of the Disambiguation pages with links monthly challenge, who have gone above and beyond to remove ambiguous links. Your achievment will be recorded at the Hall of Fame.
This award is presented to BD2412, for successfully fixing 5772 links in the challenge of March, 2012.

Immage uploads[edit]

Do you still do image uploads? I've got one that I think will be useful: An SSN card from someone I can proove is dead, and so can be published without having to be censored like the one currently on the page. 76.117.247.55 (talk) 20:22, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

Yes, but you'll need to wait a while - I'm busy with something else for the next few hours. Cheers! bd2412 T 21:49, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

3D film[edit]

Hi, as you go about your AWB clean up work on 3D film, I thought I should point out to you that the link you have been adding, to 3-D film, is merely a redirect to 3D film. thanks, Shawn in Montreal (talk) 17:40, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

Images[edit]

These are the files: Image:SSN-1943.png, Image:SSN-supplimental.png. Both are {{PD-USGov}}. You can check the SSN and name through any online copy of the SSDI, such as this one: [4]. These images should be able to replace the current censored image on the SSN page. Thanx, 76.117.247.55 (talk) 21:32, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

Okay - give me a few minutes. Cheers! bd2412 T 21:35, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
I downloaded the images, but unfortunately I get an error report when I try to access that page of the familysearch.org website. I need to be able to see the sourcing information to upload the images to Commons. bd2412 T 00:36, 9 July 2012 (UTC)
Familysearch is just to proove that the person/SSN is dead, unfortunately their URIs aren't persistent so I can't do a direct link. The source is me. Any SSDI website will show that that number belongs to a deceased person. Since people are (correctly) fussy about privacy here, I wanted to be able to show proof of that. 76.117.247.55 (talk) 02:06, 9 July 2012 (UTC)
Any developments? 76.117.247.55 (talk) 14:30, 28 July 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, I thought I was waiting for something from you. I don't think the source can be you, since you are not the author of these documents. Did you get these from that familysearch website? bd2412 T 17:22, 28 July 2012 (UTC)
I personally scanned them in. If the source isn't me, it's the SSA as the designer and/or the GPO as printer. Either way they're PD-USGov. 76.117.247.55 (talk) 03:07, 30 July 2012 (UTC)
I'll figure this out tonight. Cheers! bd2412 T 16:16, 31 July 2012 (UTC)

General Welfare clause[edit]

I'm going to ask you to intervene now, please. He's reverted substantive edits of the citations (as done here [5]) and appears to be intentionally misreading Story to support his own viewpoint.

In reference to List of federal judges appointed by Barack Obama[edit]

I noticed that an IP editor recently made a change to the List of federal judges appointed by Barack Obama article, wherein the background color for judicial candidates that had been reported from committee, but not yet confirmed, was changed to purple. I am not sure that this is an entirely helpful change, but rather than revert it myself, I thought I would ask for a second opinion from another editor involved in WP USCJ. Thanks. Safiel (talk) 18:08, 19 July 2012 (UTC)

I should note that I changed the IP editors choice of Barney purple to a less flamboyant silver. Safiel (talk) 06:21, 20 July 2012 (UTC)
I am fine with using a different color to distinguish nominees who are at a different stage in the process, so long as someone keeps up with where they are in it. bd2412 T 17:41, 20 July 2012 (UTC)
I will go ahead and leave it as is. Thanks. Safiel (talk) 21:40, 20 July 2012 (UTC)

Changing "Image" to "File"[edit]

Hi. On the principal of "If it ain't broke, don't fix it", it's really not necessary to change "Image" to "File" in image descriptors. Both words work exactly the same, and there's no indication that "Image" is going to stop working anytime soon (and if it does, a bot can make the changes en masse). As it is, if you make that change, it causes the article to pop on on people's watchlists, and they have to take the time to check out what the change is, only to find a needless edit. Thanks. Beyond My Ken (talk) 05:12, 20 July 2012 (UTC)

Actually, I'm fixing disambiguation links. The Image --> File change is just part of the setup, along with a few other common fixes that I implement while fixing the disambigs. Cheers! bd2412 T 17:40, 20 July 2012 (UTC)

Newly added disambiguation pages[edit]

I like sortability, but in terms of grabbing entries that are on my AWB list, I only need them to be in Wikipedia space. bd2412 T 19:55, 27 July 2012 (UTC)

Particulates[edit]

Following me asking for advice on whether particulates should be a disambiguation page another used made it a disambiguation page.

Indef[edit]

May I? This is a purely disruptive, even incompetent editor. Drmies (talk) 03:12, 13 August 2012 (UTC)

I think most of the edits made by this author have been efforts at simplification and rearranging of articles. Granted, he's introduced some fairly basic spelling and grammar errors, and has changed the basic meaning of sentences without changing the source identified, even though that source does not stand for the rewritten content. However, I don't think that it's clear that he is trying to be malicious. I suggest we give him a little more leeway and see if we can't bring some productiveness out of him. Cheers! bd2412 T 03:16, 13 August 2012 (UTC)
Good luck with it then... I see various types of incompetence and a terrible battleground mentality. Drmies (talk) 03:17, 13 August 2012 (UTC)
A little more leeway. I've offered some guidance on this user's talk page. If he continues his current pattern of behavior, further measures will be in order. I'm still not sure an indefblock is called for. Maybe he's young and can outgrow his current predilections in the course of a few months or a year. bd2412 T 03:27, 13 August 2012 (UTC)
In any case, it seems that this user has selected himself out. Cheers! bd2412 T 03:33, 13 August 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, I'm sorry I turned out to be right. Happy days, Drmies (talk) 19:23, 13 August 2012 (UTC)

Chevron Cars Ltd[edit]

In case you didn't know, Chevrons were a make of race car in the 60's and 70's based in the United Kingdom. The famous oil company did not make race cars. Thank you. --Hmdwgf (talk) 19:18, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

I did not know that - thanks for the information. bd2412 T 19:49, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

Dabfix[edit]

Hello, how are you fixing dab links? I am using dabfix, but, I am not getting points. For example if I fix dab of "Tamil" in 20 pages, I am getting only 1 point (for the first fix only), thus my points are much much less than it should be! --Tito Dutta 13:31, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

I'm not doing anything special, so it may be that there is still some lag in the list of fixes being reported. bd2412 T 15:52, 26 August 2012 (UTC)
I think the point Titodutta may be missing is that you only get points for fixing links to disambig pages that are on either the Monthly list or the Bonus list. Tamil isn't on either list this month. But of course, Titodutta, you're still helping improve Wikipedia by fixing these links, whether you get points for them or not. --R'n'B (call me Russ) 01:30, 27 August 2012 (UTC)
Of course, there is that. bd2412 T 01:31, 27 August 2012 (UTC)
I think the point Titodutta may be missing is... That's why my points are much much lower. See this edit– 105 dabs in one edit, and 0 point most probably! :) --Tito Dutta 02:52, 27 August 2012 (UTC)
Actually, with than number of disambig fixes, I would be surprised if at least some of them were not on the Bonus list. bd2412 T 03:16, 27 August 2012 (UTC)
I imagine so. One can see exactly which edits Titodutta got points for here. R'n'B (call me Russ) 10:51, 27 August 2012 (UTC)

Confession[edit]

I see that you turned Confession into an article. The problem is, there are still a whole lot of of links that got to Confession when they should be going to Confession (religion). It's a lot easier to fix those with the disambiguation tools, so should be leave it as a disambiguation page until all the incoming links are fixed? StAnselm (talk) 23:28, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

  • Good point, but the broad concept really should be an article. I'll go ahead and fix those links with AWB right after dinner. Cheers! bd2412 T 23:41, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for your edit on List of artistic media. — RW Marloe (talk) 13:40, 11 September 2012 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Plouhar.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Plouhar.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 14:17, 11 September 2012 (UTC)

Fixed, thanks. The fair use rationale was provided in the summary, but was not presented in a template. bd2412 T 16:00, 11 September 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for edits, and a request[edit]

Thanks for your edits to my United States v. Knotts entries on 9/20/12. That was my first entry. Just made more comprehensive entries to United States v. Jones (2012). Could you please look over it? Thanks Rybkovich (talk) 05:36, 26 September 2012 (UTC)

David William Hutchison edit[edit]

I ran across your edit of David William Hutchison. I couldn't find any evidence on line to support the thought that he received the Air Force Distinguished Service Medal. This website indicates that he received the Army Distinguished Service Medal back in 1945. And the article at this link confirms that he had the medal in 1951. The Air Force Distinguished Service Medal was not established until 1960. I wanted to check with you though before I change it. Thank you. SchreiberBike (talk) 20:13, 6 October 2012 (UTC)

I was probably in error, then. I assumed that the medal received would correspond to the branch of service of the recipient, so changed all the disambig links for Air Force personnel to the Air Force medal. bd2412 T 20:23, 6 October 2012 (UTC)
