Please see Talk:DRM#Digital rights management redirect[edit]

Though I reverted your edit at WP:DRM, citing WP:DABPIPE, I wanted to make sure you saw the talk page discussion at Talk:DRM#Digital rights management redirect since my edit summary didn't point that out. I didn't want to make it seem as though I was simply reverting without trying to discuss it. Cheers. - Aoidh (talk) 20:45, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

Empath[edit]

Even though it isn't mentioned at the target article does not mean it isn't used that way. We aren't a dictionary, and we're not supposed to have references on disambiguation pages. But it is clearly used as a synonym for "telempath" in fiction. [1] I fail to see why it should be removed from the disambiguation page, since it is actual usage and one not knowing that the term "empath" used in fiction means what we're covering as "telempath" should not be directed to the correct article that covers the subject. If we add every synonym to target articles, doesn't that turn the target articles into dictionary pages with lists of synonyms? Alternately, I could add references to the disambiguation page instead. -- 65.94.171.126 (talk) 04:59, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

It's removed from the dab because the dab is there for navigation, and the reader isn't served by navigating them to an article that doesn't mention the topic the reader is seeking. In this case, it would only be necessary to add the information to the article first, and then (assuming it raises no objections for notability, citations, neutrality, etc.) adding it to the disambiguation page. No references can be added to the dab page; all references go with the additions to the target article. -- JHunterJ (talk) 11:06, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

New York Theater redirect[edit]

Can you help with this? New York Theatre properly names a dab, but New York Theater improperly redirects to Bowery Theatre. Thanks a lot! Vzeebjtf (talk) 12:19, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

Thank you. I asked because I'm not sure what I'm allowed to change. Vzeebjtf (talk) 23:05, 27 July 2014 (UTC)
Ah, got it. You're allowed to change anything that you believe will improve the encyclopedia -- be bold. You are welcome to discuss changes that you think might be controversial on talk pages first (such as Talk:New York Theater), but it's not required. If someone reverts your bold edit, then definitely discuss it on the talk page. Cheers! -- JHunterJ (talk) 10:59, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

English Rose[edit]

There have been some major edits here, at what has been a disambiguation page since 2007. A new article has been written and claimed as the primary topic, which seems very dubious to me. I've discussed it with the editor in question, but I'm not sure where it's going. Any thoughts? I'm writing to you because you had some input at the talk page there years ago.
