Disambiguation link notification for April 23[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited U.S. Route 77 in Nebraska, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Lincoln Municipal Airport (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.

I appreciate the sentiment either way. :) Thank you for getting the junction table on Route 77 up to standards. --CrunchySkies (talk) 04:24, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

The Wikipedia Library: New Account Coordinators Needed[edit]

Hi Books & Bytes recipients: The Wikipedia Library has been expanding rapidly and we need some help! We currently have 10 signups for free account access open and several more in the works... In order to help with those signups, distribute access codes, and manage accounts we'll need 2-3 more Account Coordinators.

It takes about an hour to get up and running and then only takes a couple hours per week, flexible depending upon your schedule and routine. If you're interested in helping out, please drop a note in the next week at my talk page or shoot me an email at: jorlowitz@gmail.com. Thanks and cheers, Jake Ocaasi via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 23:41, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

Neighborhoods in Lincoln, Nebraska[edit]

Hey CrunchySkies,

I would more than welcome any help with the Neighborhoods in Lincoln, Nebraska article! Wikipedia is relatively new to me, so what just had happened and I guess what I did to make it happen is quite a bit confusing to me. I see that the page is still there, but how it works in the greater scheme of things and with the articles of creation is a bit beyond me. I'm good with editing pages (really happy to be able to help out on Lincoln! - my hometown for all my life except for a two-year stint in-between in China) but creating, not so much.

So I guess to sum it up... I don't think anything bad happened, but is there anything that needs to be corrected just to be safe???

Also, don't know if you noticed, but I nominated the Lincoln article for GA status. I know there will probably be quite a few issues with the article, but I thought it would at least give an idea of where the article stands if the changes needed for GA would be unmanageable within the allotted time period for improvements. Hopefully but we'll see.....

Thank you once again so much for your help in advance! Hanyou23 (talk) 01:26, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

Marion Stokes[edit]

Awesome work on the Marion Stokes article. I remember reading something about her after she died and thought at the time she'd make an interesting Wikipedia article subject. It's already an excellent article, Wikipedia needs more like this! Thank you! Andrew Lenahan - Starblind 12:44, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks! :) Glad you appreciate the new article. --CrunchySkies (talk) 13:20, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanksgiving (United States)[edit]

Oops, I thought I was addressing only a section blanking incident, but now I see that I also undid your thoughtful changes to Thanksgiving (United States). I would have discussed it first, had I realized. I like a format with 28 rows, so that the 28-year cycle is apparent. What do you think? Leegrc (talk) 14:55, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

I think it works this way. This format does make the table appear quite a bit larger, but I'm not opposed to it because it adds clarity in terms of the cycle, which wouldn't otherwise be possible. While this will have to be updated every year, I think the article receives enough traffic to where it won't be a problem... even in the month of May (which is about as opposite of Thanksgiving as possible), it gets as many as 1,200 daily views depending on the day.
Incidentally, I didn't even realize this table had previously been part of the article until after making my own table... that strange blanking happened several edits prior and I didn't notice it right away. I just figured there had never been a table there before. Thank you for your work on this. --→CrunchySkies« talk ± gawk » 08:14, 25 September 2014 (UTC)
The table auto-updates the year, so that viewers any year will see the then current year up front an center, and in bold. Leegrc (talk) 16:06, 25 September 2014 (UTC)
