Piped links on disambiguation pages[edit]

I noticed and reverted some obviously good-faith changes you made to Matthew. In this case, Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style_(disambiguation_pages)#Piping_and_redirects states that piped links can be appropriate in order to create italics— not, of course, to change anything else about the appearance, of course. — Chromancer talk/cont 10:33, 5 September 2010 (UTC)

L'Arche Link Issue[edit]

I understand why the link to "L'Arche Atlantic Region (Canada)" was removed, since it belongs to a localised wing of the L'Arche organization. But why would you remove the link to L'Arche International (www.larche.org)? None of the organizations currently listed as External Links in the Developmental disability article (with the possible exception of the IASSID) have the international scope of L'Arche, so your concerns about L'Arche being "too localised" are mystifying to me. Worldwide, L'Arche is one of the most significant organizations serving persons with developmental disabilities. Aside from having homes and programs in the U.S. and Canada, it operates in over 35 other countries (and counting)! In my opinion, adding the L'Arche International link would be a welcome addition to a list of links that is currently far too limited in scope.Njodonnell (talk) 15:15, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

4'33"[edit]

Thank you for the message at the talk page; it did get a lot of discussions about the piece itself. It was high time for archiving the page, so I did that and added a "not a forum" template in the process - hopefully it will help.

Best,

Agree with your proposal[edit]

You recently requested my article Rubber News to be deleted, I see why it should be deleted but I don't know how to delete it, if you know how to, could you delete it? Thanks. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Comedy Dan (talkcontribs) 22:07, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the reply and I will wait for the article to be deleted. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Comedy Dan (talkcontribs) 16:00, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

Siouxsie and the Banshees[edit]

I read your comment. In fact, most of their studio albums were released under the banner Siouxsie "AND"... So it would be more relevant to make "AND" appear instead of "&". Let me know if you can make the change. Carliertwo (talk) 13:25 31 January, 2010

Wolf Brother[edit]

Thanks, I was shocked to see what bad condition the page is in! I will be working on it over the next few days untill it is in alot better condition. But I must ask, can you help me with the page? The page needs ALOT of work and im afraid i wont be able to fix it up myself. If you want to help please let me know! I need to work on EACH of the COAD books and they are all in very bad condition. I will also be making an entirley new wikipedia page for the list of all the charcters in the series. I need all the help i can get! D: (Moviedude346 (talk) 18:02, 21 August 2010 (UTC))

Thanks. And no, I havent the slightest clue, but I can check the chronicles offical "wiki" for you. In the meantime, can you please start cleaning up Spirit Walkers wikipedia page? Im hoping i will be done with Wolf Brother by the end of today. Spirit Walker, Soul Eater, Outcast, Oath Breaker, Ghost Hunter, then the COAD's wikipedia page, THEN Michelle Pavers wikipedia page. Thats alot of cleaning up D: (Moviedude346 (talk) 17:49, 22 August 2010 (UTC))

Re: Spirit Walker. Thanks a bunch. I have been using the wikpedia page for the 1st harry potter book as the template for Wolf Brother, so you can use the second HP book as a template. Unfortunatly COAD isnt as big as Harry Potter so there is no way the COAD pages will ever be as big and informal as the HP pages. (Moviedude346 (talk) 20:49, 22 August 2010 (UTC))

I have made alot more tweeks to Wolf Brother and spirit walker. please correct my terrible spelling and grammar like you always do D: (Moviedude346 (talk) 01:41, 24 August 2010 (UTC))

Do you know how old Torak is by the end of Ghost Hunter? Wolf Brother took place over the course of two months and then Spirit Walker takes place six months after Wolf Brother. I am re reading the series as I clean up each page and Im half way through Spirit Walker. When im done with spirit walker i will offically begin the cleaning up of that page. Do you know how much time passes throughout the entire series? In the beginning torak is twelve but how old is he at the very end? (Moviedude346 (talk) 06:17, 27 August 2010 (UTC))


Italian Renaissance painting[edit]

I reverted your edit and I'm just letting you know the reason. Generally articles in the "see also" section are may be fairly loosely related to the main topc, but in this case, the articles about themes in Renaissance painting is tightly linked to the main. It expands upon and illustrates the Main topic in a way that is too lengthy to be done in a single article.

As for its presence in the See also list, I am of the opinion that all the relevant articles ought to be there, even if they are linked under a Subheading as a Main. It's better to have two links to an important article than have readers unable to find what they want. That See Also list ought to be an invaluable asset to the reader, but often the most important links have been removed by someone who has noticed that a link has been made twice.

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being minor in the usual way.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. With the script in place, you can continue with this functionality indefinitely (its use is governed by WP:MINOR). If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 18:14, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

Talkpage deletion[edit]

Heyo; I've just repeatedly deleted and undeleted your talkpage to include the content found at Talk:Live in Bonn, which was created when you evidently accidentally moved your talkpage there. Now fixed. Ironholds (talk) 18:05, 27 August 2011 (UTC)

Deletion of content[edit]

When removing links to deleted pages, delete the bracketing, but please don't delete content, as you did at Primeval and other pages, when you removed "by [[Impossible Pictures]]" in toto.[1] Please also note that even though you have nominated something for deletion, it's not guaranteed to be deleted, so deleting links to the page is premature and shouldn't be done, as you have done with links to {{Impossible Pictures}}.[2][3]This edit summary is actually misleading because the page was NOT deleted at the time you removed the link and in fact wasn't even prodded until 22 minutes later. Leaving the links active alerts readers of the articles to the fact that the template is proposed for deletion. --AussieLegend (talk) 16:39, 2 September 2011 (UTC)

I have restored and revised the Impossible Pictures article. So please do delete related links to that article or related template unless and until it is deleted again. Barsoomian (talk) 18:15, 2 September 2011 (UTC)

Siouxsie and the Banshees ratings boxes[edit]

Hi. I noticed you removed the ratings box from all the Siouxsie and the Banshees album articles after I put them back in. Why is that? Practically all other artists on Wikipedia have ratings boxes for their album articles, why not the Banshees? Shaneymike (talk) 00:04, 19 August 2012 (UTC)

"teenage thesis"[edit]

Hello,

I noticed you correctly and appropriately reverted a piece of unsourced original research over at Gravity (film). But for your edit summary you used "deleted teenage thesis".

Siouxsie[edit]

I saw two mistakes for the titles of these two following articles :
