Would you be willing to go into further detail why you reverted my edit here? Thanks. Fran Rogers (talk) 01:39, 22 December 2009 (UTC)

If you don't explain your objections, I am going to assume you're OK with me reverting back to my version. Fran Rogers (talk) 03:51, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

Newfoundland Disambiguation Links[edit]

Hi. I've just reverted the "two other uses" templates on Newfoundland and Labrador and Newfoundland (island) again. The problem with the Newfoundland Island linkage is that Newfoundland Island is actually Ukasiksalik Island on Davis Inlet, Labrador; it is an apparently unpopulated island of limited notability, and "Newfoundland Island" is apparently an alternate name for it. I'm not sure where this came from, but it has created a huge amount of confusion (I have just reverted a whole bunch of links from historical articles linking to an unpopulated Labrador island when they actually meant the island of Newfoundland - some of these were particularly obvious cases and in a few the article actually linked to both Newfoundland (island) and Ukasiksalik Island under the old name). It isn't even on Groswater Bay, but a few hundred kilometers north of it, on Davis Inlet.

The "two other uses" templates on Newfoundland and Labrador and Newfoundland (island) were put there because those are the two most common uses of the term Newfoundland; they link to each other so that anyone searching for the one but getting the other can easily shift between them. The Newfoundland disambiguation page links to both of those plus the half-dozen or so other possible meanings, and is linked from each of them using the "two other uses" template in case the searching user actually meant something else.

The existence of the Ukasiksalik Island article (renamed from the old Newfoundland Island) has already created a second disambiguation page at Newfoundland Island, which is making matters worse. I have a WP:PROD tag on Ukasiksalik Island for notability reasons and assuming that goes through I'm going to request a speedy delete of the 2nd disambiguation page as a duplicate.

I'm not trying to edit war with you; I'm just trying to make sure the distinction between the island of Newfoundland and the province it is party of remains clear. The newfoundland Island article should (in my opinion) never have been created in the first place.Vulcan's Forge (talk) 18:34, 17 January 2010 (UTC)

Fair enough. However, the province's official name changed only recently to Newfoundland and Labrador - until only a few years ago it was the Province of Newfoundland (hence the confusion). There was a fairly extensive debate bordering on 3RR about where Newfoundland should redirect to (province vs island) a few years ago - see here for details. The eventual result was to tag both pages with the "two other uses" tag linking each other and the disambiguation page, which has served fairly well until recently (although I'm not sure it was ever formally agreed upon). I think this provides a reasonable response to the problem of identity, and gives the user a shortcut to the most likely alternative they were looking for (and I have to admit, it make for easier maintenance jumping back and forth between the two articles as well). Speaking as a Canadian and a Newfoundlander, I can also tell you that in colloquial usage it is generally referred to as Newfoundland (meaning the province, not the island), with a few notable exceptions.
If you really don't like it, we can bring it to the article talk page for discussion. I think, though, that there's enough grounds here to treat this as an exception to the WP:NAMB guidelines and leave it in.Vulcan's Forge (talk) 19:43, 17 January 2010 (UTC)

Removing *Data storage devices and their interfaces* in Database[edit]

You have removed the section and justified by "Tangential / beyond scope." This is true when viewing a database from above, as end-users and naive administrators and application programmers do. But for a more serious design, and of course for DBMS design and development, this information is very important. The Database article deals with the wide scope of the database subject, with all important aspects and views. Please bring to discussion if you do not see this. 65.96.201.116 (talk) 02:19, 12 April 2012 (UTC)

Fahrenheit 451[edit]

Hi, Cybercobra. I noticed that in the past you have been a main contributor to the Fahrenheit 451 article. I have recently been working on that article with the aim of submitting it for WP:GA review. If you are still interested in the topic, I'd be more than please to have your help if you are still interested in that topic. I just finished a revamp of the plot summary, which I think greatly improves upon the old version. I now intend to focus on the literary analysis sections and adding better references. This will be a slow, on-going process that may take months. I edit at a leisurely pace, making slow but steady process.

I looked at your user page. We are very similar people in many ways!

I prefer the reply at same location method of using talk pages because it keeps the discussion localized, so you can reply here. Cheers, Jason Quinn (talk) 19:35, 9 August 2013 (UTC)

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. This is a notice to inform you that a tag has been placed on -itis requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia.

Mark project defunct?[edit]

Cybercobra, I see that you created WikiProject Citizendium Porting. I am inclined to mark it as defunct, as there has been no work on it in a couple of years and it seems unlikely that Citizendium will be a useful source of content for Wikipedia articles any more. Any objections? (I would prefer that you answer here instead of my talk page). RockMagnetist (talk) 17:57, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
