Miscellany[edit]

Jeff Benjamin, "AKB48, Morning Musume Win Big at Billboard Japan Music Awards" (January 09, 2014) Mega J-pop girl group AKB48 -- currently boasting more than 80 members -- snagged four awards, including "Artist of the Year 2013" which is given to the act who made the biggest impact on the country's music industry. The Japanese idol group won the same four awards last year. Watch a preview video of their most recent Japan Hot 100 No. 1 "Suzukake No Ki No Michi De uKim…," the last chart topper of last year from the Dec. 28, 2013 chart.

Last-name-first redirects[edit]

For hundreds of years, reference works tended to list human names by last name, comma, first name (as in Washington, George). It is therefore permissible to create redirects following this formula, as some readers may expect to be able to find names this way.

Wish list[edit]

  • Academy Award-winning Wikimedia feature-length documentaries on scientific and historic subjects (perhaps even theatrical releases).
  • A 24-hour Wikimedia broadcast station.
  • Brick-and-mortar Wikimedia centers in ever major city where people can come together for events, classes, or just to edit.
  • 3D printing files from Commons.
  • 3D rendering from Commons, which can be embedded in Wikipedia articles (e.g. see a Geneva mechanism or Michelangelo's David from all angles; see a tiger from all angles and see internal layer views).
  • Live cameras with 24 hour broadcasts of zoo animals, monuments, works of art. When I go to the article, Tiger, I want to see a 3D rendering, a short film, and a live camera feed of a tiger habitat in a zoo.

I find it problematic that we have three different Wikiprojects that contain substantially overlapping (but uncoordinated) material on proverbs.

Revisit[edit]

Two link discography indexes[edit]

Recently I have noticed that there were a small number of pages titled "Foo discography", tagged as disambiguation pages, and containing links to lists of different kinds of discographies by the same artist. I have changed all of these to media index pages, since they are obviously not unrelated for disambiguation purposes (see WP:DABCONCEPT), but I doubt that they need to exist at all. Of the 3,451 pages in Category:Discographies by genre, 3,379 are titled "Foo discography", while only 26 are titled "Foo albums discography". An additional 34 are titled "Foo singles discography", and some of these have long existed where the main article is titled "Foo albums discography".

An example of a page currently presented as an index of only a few links is Mariah Carey discography, which states that the title may refer to Mariah Carey albums discography, Mariah Carey singles discography, and Mariah Carey videography. Putting aside the question of whether "discography" refers to a videography at all, it is incorrect to suggest that the term "discography" refers to one or the other kind of recording, as opposed to referring to both kinds of recording combined. By contrast, see Annie discography for a proper disambiguation page containing links to multiple unrelated artists or collections that happen to share the name "Annie". For this reason, and because many of these pages only have links to two or three articles collecting different kinds of recordings by the same artist, I do not think they need to exist at all. In each case, I would presume that the discography most likely to be sought was the album discography (since most tracks released as singles are also released on albums), and would move all articles currently titled "Foo albums discography" to "Foo discography", with a hatnote to indicate the existence of a separate "Foo singles discography" as needed.

Disambiguation nightmares[edit]

A disambiguation nightmare is a disambiguation page for which it is very difficult to fix the incoming links because topics on the page are excessive, poorly described, poorly delineated, overlapping, or generally incomplete. A disambiguation nightmare can occur for a common human name like John Smith because there are so many people by that name that it is very difficult for a reader coming to that page to quickly find the John Smith mentioned in an article linking to the page.

Disambiguation link fixing one-day contest[edit]

I have decided to put on a mini-contest within the November 2013 monthly disambiguation contest, on Saturday, November 23 (UTC). I will personally give a $20 Amazon.com gift card to the disambiguator who fixes the most links on that server-day (see the project page for details on scoring points). Since we are not geared up to do an automated count for that day, at 00:00, 23 November 2013 (UTC) (which is 7:00 PM on November 22, EST), I'll take a screenshot of the project page leaderboard. I will presume that anyone who is not already listed on the leaderboard has precisely nine edits. At 01:00, 24 November 2013 (UTC) (8:00 PM on November 23, EST), I'll take a screenshot of the leaderboard at that time (the extra hour is to give the board time to update), and I will determine from that who our winner is. I will credit links fixed by turning a WP:DABCONCEPT page into an article, but you'll have to let me know me that you did so. Here's to a fun contest. Note that according to the Daily Disambig, we currently have under 256,000 disambiguation links to be fixed. If everyone in the disambiguation link fixers category were to fix 500 links, we would have them all done - so aim high! Cheers!

Proposal for fixing links to potentially ambiguous primary topic redirects and primary topic titles[edit]

I propose to amend Wikipedia:Redirect#Do not "fix" links to redirects that are not broken to permit "fixing" links from potentially ambiguous redirects, where doing so makes it easier to find and fix mistaken links to that redirect.

For example, CIA redirects to Central Intelligence Agency, and it is not disputed that the primary topic of "CIA" is "Central Intelligence Agency"; nevertheless, there are many other lesser-known meanings of "CIA" to which editors sometimes intend to link, such as The Culinary Institute of America, Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, and Calgary International Airport. In order to find and fix accidental links to CIA that are intended for one of these other meanings, I would like to change all existing links intended to point to Central Intelligence Agency to piped, direct links to that target (i.e., [[Central Intelligence Agency|CIA]] links).

I would further like to do something similar for primary topic titles for which other prominent uses exist. For example, links are often made to Apple and Mouse that are intended for Apple Inc. and Mouse (computing). I would like to change all of the links that are intended to point to Apple and Mouse into redirects that are piped through Apple (fruit) and Mouse (animal), so that it will be easier to find and fix accidental links to these pages that are intended for the other pages at issue.

DAB AWB wish list[edit]

I would like:

  • AWB disambiguation to recognize disambiguation redirect titles.
  • AWB disambiguation to fix titles in {{disambiguation needed|Foo}} templates.
  • The ability to get all the "what links here" lists for a list of articles at once.
  • The ability to generate lists of solutions for multiple disambiguation links at once, and see those in the disambiguation window.
  • Recognize and fix dab links in {{sortname}} templates.

DAB points[edit]

With close to a million incorrect links to fix, the most effective way to do it is with a program like AWB that loads up all links to a particular page. By excluding the tens of thousands of intentional links from this process, we save enough time that we are actually finally getting ahead of the curve. As long as there are disambiguation pages, there will be errant links to them, and we will need some means to avoid the distraction of those intentional links.

A redirect that does not contain the phrase "(disambiguation)" would not show up on the "what links here" page as redirecting through a "foo (disambiguation)" page. For a page like John Smith, if the dozens of intentional incoming links did not redirect through John Smith (disambiguation), people trying to fix incorrect links would waste hours checking pages containing intentional links that could not be fixed.

In Darmok, Data was not very helpful just reeling off a list of topics with no sense of relative usefulness to the situation at hand.

http://www.senate.gov/artandhistory/history/minute/Committee_Grills_Nominee.htm

On January 24, 1925, five days after the Senate Judiciary Committee had recommended Stone's confirmation, Senator Thomas J. Walsh—Wheeler's Montana colleague and legal counsel—convinced the Senate to return the nomination to committee for further review. Although President Coolidge refused to withdraw the nomination, he agreed to an unprecedented compromise. He would allow Stone to become the first Supreme Court nominee in history to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee. On January 28, 1925, Stone's masterful performance during five hours of public session testimony cleared the way for his quick confirmation. Senator Wheeler soon won acquittal of all charges. Not until 1955, however, did the Senate Judiciary Committee routinely adopt the practice, based on the precedent established by the Stone nomination, of requiring all Supreme Court nominees to appear in person.


, a Maryland Transit Administration bus route from North Avenue by Calvert Street|North Calvert Street in the north end (behind the old 1912 Baltimore Polytechnic Institute high school building - now the Alice G. Pinderhughes administrative headquarters of the Baltimore City Public Schools) in the mid-town area (near the newly developed and designated "Station North" district) through the downtown central business district, past the "Inner Harbor" and old South Baltimore/Federal Hill peninsula, across the Hanover Street Bridge and the Middle Branch of the Patapsco River, to East Patapsco Avenue, the main northwest-southeast commercial strip of the adjacent community to the west of "The Bay", known as Brooklyn, where the line runs a circuitous route after turning right (to the south) through the Brooklyn residential streets up 10th Street to Church Street then to the intersection of the Curtis Bay neighborhood's main commercial drive - Pennington Avenue and Spruce Street in the northeastern corner of the Curtis Bay residential area in Baltimore, Maryland. Evolved 130 years from the former Baltimore and Curtis Bay Railroad line of electrified streetcars first began running in 1893 after the mid-century became the old Number 6 line from the days of the streetcars of the old United Railways and Electric Company which merged out of several competing lines in 1899 to the later successor merged Baltimore Transit Company after 1935. The modern state MTA was formed after the state takeover of the BTC in 1968. By the mid-1980's, the old Number 6 line was split into several routes, #61, #62 and #64 serving different southern ends and terminuses of the old combined line in various sectors of the surrounding southern Baltimore neighborhoods of Brooklyn-Curtis Bay-Fairfield-Wagner's Point and the U.S. Coast Guard Yard at Arundel Cove.


DLQ: The statement of Lord Mansfield is obvious. If a person was allowed to bring two or more actions against another for causes which might have been joined, on its being shown to the Court that the double or plural proceeding is vexatious or oppressive, the Court will consolidate them : that power has always laid in its ordinary and de cursu jurisdiction to prevent abuse of its own powers. Also when two or more actions are brought by the same plaintiff against different defendants but the questions in dispute are the same, the Court will on the application of the defendants stay proceedings in all the cases but one. This kind of consolidation can only be obtained at the instance of defendants, yet a somewhat analogous proceeding has been adopted in the converse case. Where a number of plaintiffs have commenced actions against the same defendants on the application of the plaintiffs, the Court may enlarge the time for taking the next step in the rest of the actions until one of them has been tried as a test action, or as just stated, it may on the application of the defendants, as was the former practice, consolidate them. —Amos v. Chadwick (1877), L. B. 4 C. D. 869. The advantage of consolidation is very clear. It prevents several suits for the same matter, thus entailing waste of public time, and also when a person by an act of his, has given rise to a right of action against him by a number of other persons, if successive actions were allowed, it might become uselessly unfair and oppressive to him. In the case of Amos v. Chadwick, previously herein quoted, there were 78 plaintiffs.
