Old discussions are moved to User talk:Crazytales/Archive9 sporadically. I'll respond here to comments left here, to avoid fragmenting discussions, but I usually remember to place {{Talkback}} at your talk page. I also might edit/combine/split headings for purposes of readability or organisation.

File Mover[edit]

Would you mind looking over the current requests for File Mover permission? -- TOW  16:21, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Done. I chose not to give you file mover permission; I don't have any issues with what you've moved to Commons, I just would prefer to see some more experience. Keep up the good work and ask file mover permission again in a while. ~Crazytales (talk) (edits) 20:37, 27 July 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for dealing with my request. I will keep moving files to commons and just use the rename template if I want a file renamed before a move. -- TOW  05:48, 28 July 2013 (UTC)

Dreams by partridges[edit]

We may not be Doctor Doolittle. But you ask a good rhetorical question. And I in turn ask: Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? FWIW, I feel intuitively that dogs dream. A thought that occurred to Patti Smith. So do Dolphins and Whales. And I extrapolate downward, albeit I have not an iota of proof. Talk about anthropomorphic. Happy editing. {:>{)> 7&6=thirteen () 15:58, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

Hi Crazytales,

I just wanted to leave a message saying thank you for assisting and moving the page "W H Smith" to "WHSmith". Appreciated :)

Calling Lake[edit]

Hi Crazytales, can you elaborate on how MoS prevents this move? Cheers, Hwy43 (talk) 07:08, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

Per WP:Manual of Style/Disambiguation pages, if there's a primary topic associated with a page title, then the article for the primary topic should be at "Page title", and the disambiguation at "Page title (disambiguation)". I think the primary topic for Calling Lake would be the lake itself. Again per MoS, the town would be at Calling Lake, Alberta, the airport at Calling Lake Airport, etc. I don't think the Calling Lake (Alberta) title makes a whole lot of sense because there aren't any other Calling Lakes (the lakes themselves) that have a Wikipedia article. ~Alison C. (Crazytales) (talkedits) 15:27, 11 June 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for elaborating. The reason I requested the db-move was that I wasn't convinced either the lake or the community was the primary topic. I'll consider a formal RM. Cheers, Hwy43 (talk) 05:25, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
Just reviewed article traffic stats. Calling Lake was viewed 391 times in the past 90 days, while Calling Lake, Alberta was viewed 1,555 times. Would this be sufficient grounds to re-request a db-move? BTW, no need to TB on my talk page. I'll keep an eye out for your reply. Cheers, Hwy43 (talk) 05:56, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
I'm not sure. I'd say yes to the db-move if the difference was like an order of magnitude, but here it's only about a factor of 4. I would still suggest opening a formal RM. ~Alison C. (Crazytales) (talkedits) 14:20, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
Okay. Thanks for the help. Cheers, Hwy43 (talk) 19:19, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
