Disambiguation link notification for February 14[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Paganism, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Pluralism (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Improving references for readability with Wikidata[edit]

Hello, I saw your proposal on village pump, and am really interested in helping make this happen. I'm a designer at WMF and have been working on future ideas to improve the readability of references. I would love to hear your opinion on the ideas there on the talkpage! I've also been working with the Visual Editor team to build a better citation dialogue that makes it easy to add a citation using a template. I wonder how this dialogue to grow in the future help editors easily pull existing Wikidata entries or create new entries. What are your thoughts on this?

@KHammerstein (WMF): Hi, there. Thanks for your support. While there was some interest, I thought my proposal might have died. I would love to further contribute to the discussion on reference readability. And, you're right to bring up the Visual Editor. Any system which allows users to enter less information makes GUI implementation easier. I think what I proposed could be applied to make citation via the Visual Editor far more user-friendly. —Sowlos  19:35, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
