In the Dark

Greetings, Bkonrad. I've started a discussion about your most recent edit to the In the Dark disambiguation page. It's at Talk:In the Dark#Piping and redirects. Feel free to join in there. Thanks. Mudwater (Talk) 22:46, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

Your Edit

Hello Bkonrad, I noticed your revert of my recent edit. Please note the correct spelling of Rue de la Chevre = Rue de la Chèvre, so I am going to change this again. Thanks. Lotje (talk) 14:47, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

Sorry, didn't notice the diacritic. olderwiser 17:45, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

Human race

I agree there is no ambiguity, but tell that to these people Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Anthropology#Human_race.28s.29. I made the disambiguation page to avoid having three hatnotes on top of the page human.·ʍaunus·snunɐw· 16:35, 24 November 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for the fixes on Southern (country subdivision)

I appreciate you making the fixes on the articles linking to Southern (country subdivision). I don't know how that page got on the Disambiguation Challenge list. Thanks again, SchreiberBike (talk) 04:52, 30 November 2012 (UTC)

Reply on comment on Talk:Musa and Talk:Ibrahim‎

Hi Bkonrad, you have adviced me to proposed a multipage requested move on the Talk:Musa and Talk:Ibrahim‎. I would like to wait for a day or two to see if someone shows up. On similar note if no buddy shows up whether opposing or favouring the proposal for a week or so is it going to be wiser to make the move or there is still a need for consensus. -- Ibrahim ebi (talk) 14:31, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

Well, the normal route for moving articles is through WP:RM. To do what you suggest, you'd need to find an admin that is willing to interpret lack of participation as consensus. There might be some willing to oblige, but doing so would open them up to criticism. On Talk:Ibrahim‎, this would amount to overturning an earlier move discussion, which would be problematic. olderwiser 00:24, 13 December 2012 (UTC)
Hmm had filed a request move as you have advice. Hope to see positive feedback. Thanks --Ibrahim ebi (talk) 03:24, 13 December 2012 (UTC)


Actually, the dumb bot on that page keeps re-adding that notice only because the database has been lagging for the past few days. All incoming links are from one nav template, which has been fixed days ago; there is nothing else for the human editor to fix on that page anymore—removing the notice saves everyone time, is all. What bots are not supposed to do, however, is to repeat edits after being explicitly reverted. Cheers,—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); December 13, 2012; 14:13 (UTC)

Ooh, my bad i guess i was wrong making the move. Anyways Its been 10 days for the second move request. Should the one making the move ask for an uninvolved editor to review the request? or what is the procedure of closing the request? or is there a specific time after which its been closed? -- Ibrahim ebi (talk) 17:34, 26 December 2012 (UTC)

There is quite a backlog at WP:RM, probably in large part due to the holiday season. There is no magic number of days, in cases where the discussion is still active or if consensus is not clear, it might be relisted. This discussion might be difficult for a closer to read consensus because the discussion conflated several different proposals. olderwiser 17:51, 26 December 2012 (UTC)
Hmm so what do you suggest asking someone to review it? or wait a little more time. -- Ibrahim ebi (talk) 17:58, 26 December 2012 (UTC)


I am misunderstanding something I think. I thought generally DAB pages do not need the (disambiguation) that is the reason i made a direct around that. what did i miss? JGVR (talk) 22:54, 27 December 2012 (UTC)

Please see WP:DDAB and WP:INTDABLINK, which explain that intentional links to disambiguation pages should use the form with "(disambiguation)" even when that is a redirect. olderwiser 22:59, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
Thank you, likely not to see that from me again :o)

Hitler (disambiguation)

I have restored my edit at Hitler (disambiguation) which you blanked. My reasons for the clean-up were specified in the edit summary. If making changes to another user's contributions, please in future use the edit summary because a plain "undo" is not an act of good faith. If you would like to discuss the problem you had with my amendment, please do so here, on the article talk or on my talk. Thank you. Evlekis (Евлекис) (argue) 21:12, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

Point taken, thanks for your change/summary. Evlekis (Евлекис) (argue) 21:54, 28 December 2012 (UTC)


Hi, thanks for the corrections on 911 (disambiguation). I had overlooked the no-piping rule. --Austrian (talk) 23:26, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for January 1

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited State of Deseret, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page John Wilson (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.
