Disambiguation link notification for April 25[edit]

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

It may seem silly to reply to a bot, but I might as well justify myself. In edition Telomerase_RNA_component, I wanted a wikilink to the word template to clarify the meaning of that word in the context of the article (especially to readers for whom English is not the native language). Disambiguation pages often contain entries to Wikipedia pages that are specific to the meaning desired, but in this case the meaning desired was in the "Molecular genetics" section — which only contains links to DNA and RNA. Moreover, for reverse transcriptase, RNA is serving as a template for DNA, not for protein. But linking to the disambiguation page gives lots of relevant information that will make the concept of "template" clear enough to non-English speakers or children. --Ben Best 13:12, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 6[edit]

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

The link to Biennial was done consciously. That page is not simply a disambiguation page, because the definition given at the beginning (which is the reason I made the link) is not contained in any of the subsequent links on that page. --Ben Best 12:33, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

Your signature[edit]

Hi Benbest, I noticed that your signature lacks any links to your user page or user talk page. Per WP:SIGLINK, editors must have at least one internal link to either your user page or user talk page. —/Mendaliv//Δ's/ 19:48, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
