Disambiguation link notification for July 7[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Dyker Beach Park and Golf Course, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Greater New York. 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.

Singapore station pages[edit]

Hello Epicgenius, I think we have corresponded before.

I notice you have added via "next station" to every single layout on every MRT page. This is extremely unnecessary and it clutters up the information. There's already an infobox to the right showing the next and previous stations. If you do not mind, I would prefer to remove the via "next station" info by the end of the month. Thank you.

In the future, I would appreciate if you contact me or any of the other frequent editors of the Singapore MRT pages before attempting to edit 100 plus pages in unison to change a generally accepted style.

Thank you.

Seloloving (talk) 12:00, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

@Seloloving: I apologize that I have done it against consensus. However, if you look at Chinese and American station layouts, the next-stop info is present, and no objections have been raised there. The links don't take up much space.
However, I see no policy that says that you have to consult with other editors before making mass minor changes. Can you point to this for me, please? Epicgenius (talk) 01:12, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
Okay... no response... should we go about notifying WPs Singapore and Rapid transit about this? Epicgenius (talk) 01:40, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

Bowery Street listed at Redirects for discussion[edit]

Information.svg

An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect Bowery Street. Since you had some involvement with the Bowery Street redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you have not already done so. — Dmitrij D. Czarkoff (talktrack) 14:42, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

New huggle 3.1 is going to be released soon[edit]

Hi Epicgenius, we are to release a new major version of huggle, but we did receive almost no feedback from our beta testing team, which you are a part of (see https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Huggle/Members). It would be of a great help if you could download it (if you have windows, all you need to do is getting http://tools.wmflabs.org/huggle/files/huggle3.1.0beta.exe and putting it to a folder where you have installed huggle) and test it. You can always get a help with making it @ #huggle connect!

Major changes:

  • Multisite support - you can now log in to unlimited number of wikis in 1 huggle session and get a huge queue of all edits made to these wikis. This is good for smaller projects which gets overlooked often.
  • Ranged diffs - you can select multiple revisions and get a huge diff that display all changes done to them.
  • Fixes of most of bug reports we had so far

In case you found a bug, please report it to bugzilla: https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/buglist.cgi?product=Huggle&list_id=147663 thank you! Petrb (talk) 10:19, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

List of multi-sport athletes[edit]

You might want to give me a good reason for this revert? Did you take the effort to click on the link of Christa Luding? Just check her medal record in both Olympic Winter and Summer Games. Besides that she was world champion in track cycling and in speed skating. So please add

or some better phrase to the article again. Thanks. -- BTW, this was not an edit requiring "good faith", my contributions are always serious, substantial and based on cited sources. You rather control edits manually than shoot too fast with this automated tool. --80.221.207.252 (talk) 15:56, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

Sorry. Please note the source in your edit summary, though. Epicgenius (talk) 00:53, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
It is not that easy, that you just say "sorry" (and even add some instructions) and leave it to me to repeat my contribution and do that work again. You behave like a supervisor who is only here to control whatever others do, just see similar threads here on your discussion page. You will please move forward and build up again what you have torn down. Who are you to delete other contributors work without at least the simplest of a check and then tell them "Oh, you have to do your work again, I am sorry", telling them at the same time, if they don't comply with YOUR standards, you are going to do the same again. I may remind you that this is Wikipedia, not Epicgeniuspedia. --Goodgirl - talk to me 06:44, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

The Bowery[edit]

Please do not change other users' signed remarks without permission, as you did mine at Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion/Log/2014 July 25, even if you might think it's minor. I worded my comment exactly as I meant to. I know you think the Bowery is not called the Bowery, and you can write and link it however you choose in your comments, but it's wrong to change someone else's, especially when the link you changed is so relevant to the topic under discussion. 72.251.71.84 (talk) 16:05, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

I am sorry, I did not notice that it was part of your remark, but this seems pretty inconsequential, IMO. By the way, yes, I don't think that the Bowery is called "the Bowery" because that's not how I grew up saying it (see Talk:Bowery). I respect others' opinions, so that I now use "The Bowery" in all appropriate mentions of it, but I was simply trying to avoid a redirect in my comment; one may also notice that I have been fixing redirects to the Bowery inside the article namespace, so it's a pretty common editing style for me.

West End[edit]

Instead of engaging in an edit war, I strongly encourage you to discuss this change on Talk:West End Avenue. I support the merge, but there's no particular urgency to complete it, is there? Pburka (talk) 00:40, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

@Pburka: Yes. The problem is that I added a significant amount of data after the merge was made, too, so I tried to undo that part, which was pretty well referenced. I don't believe BMK wants to merge the articles, obviously, but I'm going to notify WP:NYC just in case. Epicgenius (talk) 00:43, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

You have a history of merging NYC street article pages without having a consensus to do so, and you have been warned by multiple efitors, including admins, not to do that. You did not have a talk page consensus to merge these two article (three people does not make a quorum for determining consensus for a major move such as that), and you certainly had no basis in policy whatsoever to revert to your version once I had undone your move. According to WP:BRD, your next step is to discuss not to revert. Please get a consensus, and do not revert again without one - that would be edit warring. The articles are now in the status quo ante, which is where, according to BRD, they shopuld stay while discussion goes on.

Since there is no agreement between us on whether there is a consensus or not to merge, I suggest your next step is to open an RfC, which will attract other editors to the question. BMK (talk) 01:30, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

I've already replied on Talk:West End Avenue. FYI, three times previously, I remember having merge discussions on this topic, and three times, I remember you being the only opponent of these merges. Epicgenius (talk) 01:32, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
You have reverted for the third time, this time on an edit that is wholly constructive and not about West End Avenue. If you keep doing this, reverting a legitimate expansion of the 11th Avenue article about the portion that is 11th Avenue, you will find yourself breaking WP:3RR. Epicgenius (talk) 02:02, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

Hell's Kitchen[edit]

The neighborhood in Manhattan is called "Hell's Kitchen". Alternately, it can be called "Clinton". There is no neighborhood in Manhattan called "Hell's Kitchen - Clinton". Use one or the other, or an expression such as "Hell's Kitchen, also called Clinton by some" or vice versa. We don't create neighborhood names out of whole cloth. BMK (talk) 02:32, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

OK, thank you. I thought they were really used interchangeably. Epicgenius (talk) 02:35, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for July 31[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Brooklyn Bridge, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Centre Street. 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.
