Belated welcome[edit]

Saw some of your edits today, and just wanted to give a much-belated welcome and thank you. Cheers, Steven Walling • talk 22:46, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

Thanks![edit]

I don't think I have actually edited an article in several years.

Compact TOC[edit]

It isn't clear to me why you are using the Template:Compact ToC on Scottish island featured lists, which, on my browser at least, simply removes the TOC. I am removing the template from these articles. Ben MacDui 10:41, 24 November 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for December 5[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Seleucid Empire, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Hellenic Polytheism (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.

Villa Angela - St. Joseph High School - Disambiguation tag needed.[edit]

Thanks for pointing out the oversight, re: the need to specify that which was meant by "Society of Mary." I have corrected the problem by modifying the link so that it points to the specific WP article (both in the body of the article and the infobox) and I have removed the tag. Thanks again!  :-) NorthCoastReader (talk) 02:13, 16 December 2012 (UTC)

December 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Hogmanay may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "{}"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • , and as such established to denote the end of the natural year, and the beginning of the new year.}

Please stop[edit]

Hello, please stop adding unnecessary categories to articles, like you've done at Bumblebee. Articles shouldn't be added to parent categories that are already in a more specific subcategory. Graham87 03:36, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

As you haven't paid attention to my message, I've blocked you. Graham87 03:50, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
Hello Graham. I have just now seen your message. Please explain your objection further, and I will fix it.Kibi78704 (talk) 03:58, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
I've only just noticed your message, as well. For more explanation, see the subcategorisation guideline. Graham87 04:01, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
I believe understand the problem, and I believe I know how I should have fixed it. Apologies.Kibi78704 (talk) 04:05, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
Describe it in your own words, along with how you would have fixed it. Graham87 04:07, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
I should have verified that the parent category Apinae had a subcategory Bumblebees, and made sure each of the parent categories listed the subcategory up the chain, rather than adding in each child node to all categories. The problem was that I was giving each node multiple parent categories rather than defining a hierarchy.Kibi78704 (talk) 04:15, 31 August 2014 (UTC).
Thanks, I've unblocked you. Please be careful when mass-adding categories ... the current category structure is there for a very good reason. (For future reference, to make a category display inline, put a colon before the category name like Category:Bumblebees ... see the wiki-markup). Also, I don't think adding the same navbox to zillions of articles is a good idea without restructuring it or making new ones, but you'd have to talk to the people more experienced with navboxes about that. Graham87 04:22, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the information. I will try to be more careful in the future.Kibi78704 (talk) 04:28, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
While checking your earliest edits from yesterday (UTC), I noticed your creation of categories such as Category:Apidae, :Category:Nomadinae and Category:Xylocopinae. Hopefully I've preserved all the articles in the last two categories during my mass-rollback of your edits, but I accidentally removed almost everything from Category:Apinae. I don't know anything about this subject (the bumblebee article is only on my watchlist to protect it against vandalism), but it seems that almost everything in Category:Apidae can be wholesale moved (not copied!) to Category:Apinae, but I'll leave you to do that if you like since you know the subject better. Tools that make these category manipulations far easier are HotCat and AutoWikiBrowser; if you'd used those tools (especially the first one), I might've understood what you were doing a bit bit better). Sorry if I was a bit heavy-handed earlier, but your rapid changes without explanation completely freaked me out. Graham87 07:18, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
Actually, I believe I created the categories ApiNae, Nomadinae, and Xylocopinae, which are subfamilies of ApiDae. It took me most of the day to do that work, and I no longer have the time (or heart) to repeat it. I was trying to make comprehensive lists in the categories of the all existing bee articles. I am sorry I did not create a clean hierarchy. Kibi78704 (talk) 18:10, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
