Disambiguation link notification for June 22[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited German submarine U-53 (1939), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page MAN (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.

German submarine U-71 (1940)[edit]

Hi, ÄDA - DÄP. When you recently added a reference to this page it caused a citation error, as the page had no {{reflist}} template. I've now added one. Using Preview before saving, if you didn't use it, may have allowed you to see this. Just FYI. --220 of Borg 04:16, 4 July 2014 (UTC)


On second look, I'm afraid to say that reference is pretty useless. You may know what book was written that has info about this submarine, but just saying "Busch, Röl" is far from informative without the actual book's title, with publisher, ISBN, etc being put in a source, bibliography or similar section. I've searched for a book under that author and found nothing. :-\ --220 of Borg 04:28, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

It seems likely this is the source you meant:
Busch, Rainer & Röll, Hans-Joachim (2003). Der U-Boot-Krieg 1939-1945 - Die Ritterkreuzträger der U-Boot-Waffe von September 1939 bis Mai 1945 (German) Hamburg, Berlin, Bonn, Germany: Verlag E.S. Mittler & Sohn. ISBN 3-8132-0515-0.
No wonder I couldn't find it, it's two people, not the surname/first name of one author. :-o --220 of Borg 04:38, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for pointing it out. I only edited the sub-heading, so preview did not show any problems with references. Plus I forgot to add the book to the bibliography, which did not exist then of course because I only added it just now. BTW Would you rather use a & then a colon in the reference then? ÄDA - DÄP VA (talk) 05:21, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
Usually only a colon (;) to separate different authors, which if you use the cite template, as you did, is how it appears. I found the ref above somewhere on WP and it is a bit non-MOS in that area. Having a comma is what made me think it was surname, firstname. All good now! :-) --220 of Borg 05:41, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
