Torte reform[edit]

Thanks! If I ate any of that I'd have to eat it all and be hooked on sugar again (ummmm, sugar). I will pass it on, and continue the cycle of torte destruction-by-fork. Appreciated, Randy Kryn 17:24 30 November, 2014 (UTC)

Enjoy![edit]

A barnstar for you![edit]

Great work on the idea of connecting historical events to eclipse occurrences. Doug Coldwell (talk) 18:32, 19 April 2015 (UTC)

Problems with your signature[edit]

Your signature line as it appeared in this edit was missing the closing SPAN tag, which meant that whomever posted next ('twas me) had their entire message appear in green-glow shadowed text. If this isn't just some one-time hiccup, you may want to fix it. --Nat Gertler (talk) 15:32, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up. Don't know why. Probably an ill-formed cut-and-paste from the Village Pump. 7&6=thirteen () 15:42, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

Yacht racing[edit]

Hello 7&6=thirteen. PLease check that all articles previously categorized under Category:Yachting races have enough categories either under Category:Sailing competitions or one of the subcategories. Can you tell me what's the need for this category if you are putting only sailboat (not motorboat) yachting events there ? Why do you thing sailboat competitions doesn't suit ?. Best regards--Banderas (talk) 11:50, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

Banderas That you ave decided to eliminate the category from

doesn't mean that the category was unneeded. If the category goes down, let it be on its own merits, not because you systematically emptied it. 7&6=thirteen () 11:53, 26 April 2015 (UTC)
Hi again Hello 7&6=thirteen. Please use my discussion page to answer me. I went one by one through those articles to categorize them in the best way. Only took them out of Yacht racing into other categories more related with sailing itself, as yachting can be done by sail or motor. After all the work, I found no article referring to motoryacht racing, therefore left the category empty. Now, they, or their tank category (like America's Cup) are categorized under a sailing category (mainly sailing competitions or subcategories). I'd love to discuss with you any case in which you don't agree with the new or left categories. It's not a matter of deleting for no reason, it's a matter of making articles easier to find. Best regards--Banderas (talk) 14:20, 26 April 2015 (UTC)
Having an extra category does not make the article less easy to find. To the contrary, a specific category (many of these actually use the word "Yacht" in the title) is helpful, not harmful. If you feel strongly about this, do a for real proposed deletion. Doing it surreptitiously (in the back door without notice and without input from relevant participants) does no one a favor. 7&6=thirteen () 14:27, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

No back door at all. I read every article to categorize on the right category. I was trying to avoid several same meaning categories per article. Just at the end of simplifying every case, it showed up there were no articles left in the yacht racing category. They all fitted under other sailing (sport) categories.--Banderas (talk) 15:35, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

I must have missed the announcement? If I did, then I apologize. If I didn't ... You may feel confident about your assessment. Of course, you and I disagree. We will see what others have to say. Deleting all the pages first and then deleting the category is Bass ackwards. Rather like dealing with the Red Queen. First then execution, then the trial. 7&6=thirteen () 15:58, 26 April 2015 (UTC)
