This editor is a Master Editor and is entitled to display this Platinum Editor Star.

Just wanted to show my support for your tireless contributions to hndis-cleanup, for both you and your alter-ego. The recent criticism is completely unjustified, I have always found your edits to follow WP:MOSDAB scrupulously. Editorial differences will always occur but this should never have gone beyond the pages concerned or your talk page. Keep up the good work! Tassedethe (talk) 08:30, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

Editor of the Week[edit]

Editor of the week barnstar.svg Editor of the Week
Your ongoing efforts to improve the encyclopedia have not gone unnoticed: You have been selected as Editor of the Week, for excellent work in a largely un-rewarded subject area. Thank you for the great contributions! (courtesy of the Wikipedia Editor Retention Project)

User:Northern Antarctica submitted the following nomination for Editor of the Week:

As a 6-year veteran editor with over a 150,000 edits, Boleyn has quietly been creating tons and tons of disambiguation pages. This is an important area of work, but it doesn't generally get much attention, so Boleyn is probably well overdue for a bit of recognition. After all, users who faithfully work to improve the encyclopedia — yet don't get very much of the limelight — are the people that this award was designed for.

You can copy the following text to your user page to display a user box proclaiming your selection as Editor of the Week:

Your advice please...[edit]

Hello!

You are the disambiguation guru. It used to be piped links were discouraged on disambiguations pages. That made sense to me. Is that still what is recommended? HMS Toronto has several piped links. Should I unpipe them?

Thanks! Geo Swan (talk) 20:13, 4 October 2014 (UTC)

Hi, Geo Swan, I hope you're well. Yes, WP:PIPING is still discouraged, so that readers can see the real link and have less chance of ending up at a disambiguation page again by mistake, and can more easily go directly to the right page. On the page you mentioned, some of the links need a blue link on their line (WP:DDD). Best wishes, Boleyn (talk) 20:20, 4 October 2014 (UTC)

  • Thanks again for the advice. Geo Swan (talk) 18:22, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

Your tireless efforts to identify and eliminate useless WP:TWODABS pages are very much appreciated. Of course, even if they were not, they would still be bettering the encyclopedia - but they are, anyway. Cheers! bd2412 T 17:17, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

Chandrasekhar[edit]

Hello Boleyn, I'm curious to know which templates you'd apply on Chandrasekhar. It's currently tagged as hndis, but I'm not sure that's quite right. I believe that one should only be used for people names with matching first and surnames. On this particular one however, the name is being used both as a first and as a surname. Rgds, --Midas02 (talk) 21:05, 13 November 2014 (UTC)

Hi, Midas02. I've admended it to a surname and given name page, it doesn't seem to be for those sharing the same personal name. Best wishes, Boleyn (talk) 21:08, 13 November 2014 (UTC)

Abadie[edit]

Hi Anne, can you turn this into a dab page? Cheers.♦ Dr. Blofeld 19:23, 23 November 2014 (UTC)

Also can you create a dab for Church of San Francisco and also link Chiesa di San Francesco (Orvieto) and Chiesa di San Francesco (San Marino) and redirect Chiesa di San Francesco to it?♦ Dr. Blofeld 20:24, 23 November 2014 (UTC)

Both done, Boleyn (talk) 14:17, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

Peter Stead architect[edit]

Ah, I see you and I have spent the last few minutes following the same lines of search and you've created the article. I may expand, but am wary of the attribution of the Farnley Hey house complimented by Pevsner, as elsewhere I see it attributed to Peter Womersley. AllyD (talk) 08:36, 7 December 2014 (UTC)


Glacier Lake School[edit]

The Glacier Lake School is interesting, and I have improved it in various ways, but I am afraid that the AfD is going to succeed. Consider Wikipedia:When in doubt, hide it in the woodwork instead.--DThomsen8 (talk) 17:05, 8 December 2014 (UTC)

About the Cotswolds big cat article[edit]

Hi Boleyn!
I agree that it is akin to a WP:1E article. And that it is also just darn silly: there. are. no. big. cats. at. large. in. the. Cotswolds. (I fully admit that, being a small cat like Smart's Jeoffry, I am a mixture of gravity and waggery, and rather like silly stuff.) I'm leery of contesting the PROD and sending it to AfD - unreliable references from internet forums and blogs might sway the closing admin - admins, those loathsome creatures! - to close it as "no consensus".
The references I used in the article were taken straight from a Google News search for the "Cotswolds big cat" as a search term. There may be more history outside of these, and I'll see if I can find more. Until I can find anything else out, the WP:PROD tag is fine by me.
Peter "loathsome creature + mixture of gravity and waggery" AU aka --Shirt58 (talk) 10:49, 11 December 2014 (UTC)

Boleyn, in your prod rationale for the article, you said you would have merged it if you had found an article on this sort of topic. There are articles on this topic, specifically British big cats and Phantom cat. I think the same story as in the Cotswolds big cat article is mentioned at British big cats#DNA evidence (the last sentence in that section). Perhaps the article should be redirected to that section rather than deleted? Calathan (talk) 16:02, 11 December 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for your help, Boleyn (talk) 17:24, 11 December 2014 (UTC)

SVU episodes: questions[edit]

My email's ralphaelturtle@yahoo.com

Since you were editing information on SVU season 5, I'm wondering if you would be willingly to communicate with me on email becuz those Episodes just won't leave me alone? I have too many episodes on DVR. I need your help please? Do you have free access to every SVU season on DVD or DVR or computer? It's hard for me to understand those Events, so would you be willing to help me?(50.173.3.170 (talk) 17:41, 15 December 2014 (UTC)).

Thanks for catching that. I could swear I thought he did a page move and not a C&P move! CrowCaw 23:34, 15 December 2014 (UTC)

Nat, Nate, Nathan, Nathaniel Moore[edit]

I'm happy to start a discussion about this, but it seemed like such a basic thing to condense and simply. It's makes for a better Disam page as well. These are all short forms of the same name, is having a discussion going to change that? --Scalhotrod (Talk) ☮ღ☺ 18:08, 24 December 2014 (UTC)
