WP:OVERLINKING[edit]

Hello, Katydidit. I reverted you here and here because, per WP:OVERLINKING, a Wikilink should generally only appear once in an article; however, there are exceptions. Read WP:OVERLINKING to see what qualifies as overlinking on Wikipedia and what the exceptions are. I reverted myself on this because you were right to link that.

I'm back at your talk page to state that the external female anatomy links you added are already provided or covered by the summary beginning at the Female anatomy and reproductive system section. Also, per MOS:QUOTE (scroll down to the Linking section as well), links generally shouldn't be placed within quotes. Flyer22 (talk) 18:48, 12 November 2013 (UTC)
I replied on my talk page. Flyer22 (talk) 20:24, 12 November 2013 (UTC)
Update here. If you reply there on my talk page, that is where any future replies about this matter will take place from me. Flyer22 (talk) 20:37, 12 November 2013 (UTC)
Heh heh, but not from me. I reply in disjointed fashion all the time. Hello Katy, nice to meet you. I sometimes stalk the Flyer's talkpage, and left a snippet over there, but I had something further to say over here. So here I am.  :-)   74.192.84.101 (talk) 22:46, 13 November 2013 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────First of all, totally agree with you about the five-bazillion-guidelines is in fact five-bazillion-too-many. That said....

Anyhoo, TLDR, the moral of the story is, after one of the BLP-specialists (User:David_in_DC) explained the dangers of links-inside-quotations stuff to me, I now religiously avoid it. There are *times* when you can 'safely' do it, but there are other times when you accidentally will misquote the source *and* simultaneously mislead the reader. Not Good -- better avoided. Hope this helps.

  p.s. And while I'm here, I glanced over your contribs, hey, thanks for improving wikipedia. I might argue that 'chest' and even 'stomach' are prolly not worth linking,[1] but I suppose it doesn't mess up the meaning of the text even if the coloration is a bit more difficult to read... as for aorta, definitely *that* one should be linked, thanks. (Who knew I had one of those? ;-)   Asked somebody to change the 'round' jargon into simply 'bullet' while I was in the area. — 74.192.84.101 (talk) 22:46, 13 November 2013 (UTC)


Pat on the back[edit]

Howdy Katydidit. Just a brief thanks for catching that Steve Webb resignation and making the change to the Mo. House Wiki. Any additional work you'd like to do in Mo. politics, i.e. creating Wiki's for House members that don't yet have them, would be awesome. I've done several but my Wiki work seems at times to be ADHD-driven. I find myself distracted to other areas / articles easily..oh look! PUPPIES!! I love cuddly pupp...er, see what I mean? LOL It's then weeks before I get back around to creating more. Anyhoo...THANKS again! Sector001 (talk) 14:05, 3 December 2013 (UTC)

Civility violation[edit]

On Talk:Franklin D. Roosevelt you have been in repeated violation of WP:CIVIL and will get banned unless you stop. Rjensen (talk) 13:49, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

I'll stop. Stop talking to you about it, because you won't discuss fairly in your stubbornness in refusing to acknowledge the other sources I cited. --Katydidit (talk) 15:00, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

Information icon There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. Thank you.

I replied to your assertion, with an explanation on how you refused to acknowledge my cites and links. --15:00, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

Confusing edit summary[edit]

Hi Katydidit, what does "Box, eps" mean? Cyphoidbomb (talk) 18:37, 19 January 2014 (UTC)

Talk:Sam & Cat#A special hour-long episode counts as a single episode[edit]

Animal House[edit]

Please refrain from edit warring. You may feel Animal House is his career highlight, but per the rule of three we've selected other films that highlighted his career more. Rusted AutoParts 00:54, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

Why is not his first one at least as important as the others? I'm not saying A.H. is his career highlight, but it was his first success in film, and there is no problem in listing it along with the others. Where is this explicit rule of three films only listed (link, please), so I can see it for myself? Who is this "we've" who get to decide what gets listed and what doesn't? Just curious, and want to know if there is a small cabal of editors who get to decide everything. Why aren't the other editors also not considered edit warring when another film is listed, but removed? Why is four prohibited, if there is a rule for that arbitrary number when a famous person has a number of significant achievements? Thanks for your answering all these questions in advance. --Katydidit (talk) 01:08, 27 February 2014 (UTC)
We pick three examples so that we don't go overboard listing his highlights, just ones that reflect his career the most. Groundhog Day reflects his writing better than Animal House. Vacation is his highest rated directed film, so that's why that's listed. As for acting. There's no question about Ghostbusters. It's not at all suggesting Animal House isn't important to Ramis, but since we've found the three that reflect on him more, it's excessive to add it. That's all.

Brian Bonsall[edit]

The death report appears to be a hoax. Usmagazine.us is not the URL of US Magazine; the domain was registered by a hoaxer just this morning. ==24.78.195.88 (talk) 16:32, 16 March 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, I didn't realize that it was a fake domain, and only added this morning. What slimeballs they are to do that! --Katydidit (talk) 16:44, 16 March 2014 (UTC)
