Sorkin disambigs[edit]

Who the hell are you to remove the disambig/distinguish from the two Sorkin pages, namely Andrew Ross Sorkin and Aaron Sorkin ??? Clearly these are required to ensure that the proper Sorkin is referenced, especially for TV viewers who confuse the two. I will not go away or back down from your unjust and unapproved reversals either. Govern yourself accordingly. 173.50.106.27 (talk) 23:56, 2 February 2012 (UTC)

There is nothing ambiguous about those two names, other than what is resolved on the Sorkin page. I don't think that there is enough potential confusion that makes the message necessary. In fact it may even cause some confusion to people that are at the right place. And there is nothing unjust about my edits. Those don't have to be approved, just like no one had to approve your edits. It's all part of how the editing process works. —Akrabbimtalk 00:22, 3 February 2012 (UTC)
Bollocks!!! Your commonsense is lacking in your recent edits to Andrew Ross Sorkin and Aaron Sorkin, which are nothing short of Vandalism at this point. Please desist from future edits here unless you have a compelling reason other than "I still don't believe this belongs".

Did you read my reply? I've already explained some of my reasoning why "I still don't believe this belongs". Also, vandalism would imply that my intentions lie in an attempt to detract from the quality of the project, which is not the case. We simply disagree; no one is vandalizing here.
Simply put, I don't see any ambiguity in these two articles that require an disambiguation. Andrew and Aaron are completely different names. We have these notices for cases like George H.W. Bush/George W. Bush and John Woo/John Wu, not Aaron/Andrew. If we put a hatnote on every single person's article that shared a last name with somebody else, then it would be overkill. Once again, I think it could be an additional cause for confusion where there wasn't one to begin with.
Maybe someone hears Andrew Ross Sorkin's name on the news. They punch it in to Wikipedia, and the first thing they see is something telling them that they might be confused with Aaron Sorkin. Now, since they recognize Aaron's name (for being a famous person and all), now they must do additional reading to make sure they were in the right spot all along. If all they could remember was a last name, then Sorkin takes care of everything. I think those cases are much more common than someone wanting to look up Andrew and only remembering Aaron's name. —Akrabbimtalk 23:06, 6 February 2012 (UTC)
You reasoned: "Maybe someone hears Andrew Ross Sorkin's name on the news.

That's the reason as to exactly why the disambigs should also remain on both pages. Thanks for understanding. 173.50.106.27 (talk) 23:52, 6 February 2012 (UTC)
You misunderstand me. In my example, they ended up at the correct page, without confusion, but then the hatnote caused confusion when there wasn't any to begin with. The purpose of these messages should be to resolve potential confusion, not generate questions. —Akrabbimtalk 23:59, 6 February 2012 (UTC)
I've brought this up at the article talk page. —Akrabbimtalk 15:02, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

page review[edit]

can you please review this page: sakib

thanks :)--Historyfeelings - talk 06:57, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

Maybe. Why me though? —Akrabbimtalk 16:05, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

if not you, who would be?!! why you are a reviewer then?--Historyfeelings - talk 21:57, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

Oh, I see now. Actually, the reviewer status is a user right that is left over from when we were trying out the pending changes system (see Wikipedia:Reviewing). It doesn't actually have to do with peer reviewing articles. But if I have time I'll still take a look at the article. —Akrabbimtalk 23:25, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

Some baklava for you![edit]

Baklava - Turkish special, 80-ply.JPEG Great job on the map on the State University of New York article! Kind regards, DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 18:33, 15 March 2013 (UTC)

Ha, thanks! And just so you know, I plan on adding the community colleges before deciding if it needs to be broken up or expanded on in the List of State University of New York units page. At the very least it could do with an accompanying NYC mapAkrabbimtalk 18:43, 15 March 2013 (UTC)

Euroscepticism[edit]

I stumbled across your edit here - care to explain? Widr (talk) 16:50, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

Ha, oops. this is what I meant to do. I have a Firefox extension that replaces every occurrence of the word 'election' with 'eating contest' (among other things) based on this comic strip. It's meant to make reading the news funnier, but it turns out that it replaces them in WP's edit window too. I'll make sure that it's disabled when editing going forward, thanks! —Akrabbimtalk 17:11, 21 January 2014 (UTC)
Hehe, thanks for that. I knew there had to be a logical explanation. :-) Widr (talk) 17:30, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Personhood, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Maori (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.
