Re: Guinea Grass, Guinea grass etc.[edit]

Hi. See my edit partly undoing one of your edits, which includes an explanation as to why. Thanks. Cheers, Infrogmation (talk) 12:36, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

Well, OK, if you think it's better to have two pages differing only by one upper/lower letter. I had already created the page "Guinea Grass, Belize", so by reverting my change to "Guinea Grass" you made a redundant page. In any case, i've gone ahead and created "Guinea grass" (lower case) to redirect to Panicum maximum.Ben (talk) 23:35, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

OK, I changed it back into a redirect. Distinguishing by capitalization seems not uncommon in Wikipedia. Note that if you think an article is at a wrong title, please don't "copy and paste" it, as that can lose article edit history and create other problems. Use the "Move this page" function instead, and it's generally a good idea to leave a message on article talk pages for possible discussion a few days before moving. See Help:Moving a page for details of best practices for moving article titles. If you have any questions you can't find an answer to, feel free to ask. Hope this helps. Thanks for your work.

Articles for deletion nomination of Forbidden Warrior[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

I have nominated Forbidden Warrior, an article that you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Forbidden Warrior. Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time.
Please contact me if you're unsure why you received this message. Orange Mike | Talk 05:28, 7 November 2009 (UTC)

Hajarin[edit]

Hi Ben, sorry about the delay. I'm sorry but I took that photo many years ago and I can't remember details about it. I labeled it as Hajarin because that's what someone told me it was called at the time, but we just drove past it, I haven't actually been in the town and I don't know anything substantive on it. However, it does appear to be a real place, and a google search turns up some neat pictures of the buildings there, on Flickr and elsewhere. Unfortunately my brief search has not turned up the exact location, but I believe it's quite close to Sanaa (I could be wrong on that too though). Hope that helps, TastyCakes (talk) 20:14, 19 July 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited The Serpent's Egg, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Ride (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.

Disambiguation link notification for October 17[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Gate of All Nations, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Assyrian (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

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! bd2412 T 01:55, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

Hawaii edit-a-thon[edit]

Hello. I'm interested in attempting to put together an edit-a-thon for Hawaiian cultural topics something during the Makahiki festival perhaps around the month of November. The hope is that our lackluster coverage of Hawaiian mythology could be improved with help from the Bishop Museum, Hawaii Pacific University, and the Honolulu public library. I am in the process of making initial contacts with these organizations as well as Wikimedia DC's GLAM project. If this sounds like something you might be interested in participating in, or perhaps helping to coordinate, could you please add your name to 2014 Makahiki Edit-a-thon?--v/r - TP 21:21, 9 June 2014 (UTC)
