Disambig pages[edit]

Please do not alphabetize the entries on disambiguation pages. Per WP:MOSDAB, disambiguation page entries are to be in the order of most common to least commonly used. Check out the guidelines on disambig pages (link above), for more information on the correct formatting of these special pages. --Srleffler 20:18, 14 July 2006 (UTC)

Most common to least common is often pretty subjective and/or arbitrary. There are usually a few meanings that are obviously going to be quite common, and some that are clearly uncommon (like names of indie bands), and then a big group in the middle that falls somewhere in between, but can't be ranked in an exact order. Approximate is good enough. If one wanted for some reason to be really "retentive" about it, one could check the list of pages that link to the disambiguation page in question, and check some of them to see which meaning is intended, and rank the list accordingly. This is not likely worth doing, though. The ultimate goal is to eliminate links to disambiguation pages altogether. These pages exist only to catch "bad" links; links that should point somewhere else.--Srleffler 14:19, 15 July 2006 (UTC)

Re: Cyclone[edit]

Got it. Thanks for pointing that out. :) If you're curious, there's some helpful information at WP:REVERT. Cheers. Luna Santin 16:53, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

British anti-invasion preparations of World War II[edit]

I thought that you might like to know that British anti-invasion preparations of World War II, an article to which you have previously contributed, has been put forward as a featured article candidate. Thank you for your help. If you would like to comment on this article's nomination, please see here. Your opinions will be most welcome. Gaius Cornelius 12:35, 16 April 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for your proofreading[edit]

Hi. I was looking at your changes to Rokeby Venus. You're right, "goddess" is spelled with two "d's". However, according to [1], "emphasise" is a correct spelling, and I think (not completely sure) it's the British spelling. Since the article is about a European piece of art which is in London, I think British spelling is appropriate for that page. (See Wikipedia:Manual of Style (spelling).) So I reverted that. Maybe I shouldn't have even mentioned it to you -- it's not a big deal. --Coppertwig (talk) 02:36, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

Sourcing[edit]

I just wanted to let you know I undid your recent edit because it was unsourced, if it can be reliably sourced, I think it would belong on a different article. –xeno (talk) 00:30, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

Looks like you are talking about my entry on "nigger" about the term nigger rich. "Nigger rich" is defined in Wictionary - do you really want common dictionary terms sourced? Makes no sense to me. A quick Google give a ton of uses - in book titles, dictionaries, etc. I'm not an academic and have no time to be looking for some non-dictionary citation.

Fair enough. I've undone my rv. cheers, –xeno (talk) 02:51, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

Minor edits[edit]

I don't think this should have been classified as a minor edit. The minor edit function is only supposed to be used for small typos and such, if I am not mistaken. Not for corrections involving several words. Cordially, SergeWoodzing (talk) 10:43, 1 June 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for your resent contributions to the article, Wing (insect), of which I have been editing. I make a lot of grammar mistakes so it helps. Bugboy52.4 ¦ =-= 23:58, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for January 12[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Hildegard of Bingen, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Illuminations (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.

CANDE[edit]

Did you really create the subject as you indicate on its talk page? I have a project to recreate the Large Systems Arch as a layer of abstraction over linux and was just thinking about how CANDE would be done in it. I'm the IP on the talk page. Lycurgus (talk) 21:44, 9 April 2014 (UTC)


  • I wrote the B6500 version of CANDE, which was quite different from the 5500 version, and both have been heavily modified over the years. You can contact me at ivan at ootbcomp dot com.
