Disambiguation link notification for April 5[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited List of Children's Book Series, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Jay Williams, Avi and Artemis Fowl (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.

Links have been fixed. Thank you, DPLbot. Listmeister (talk) 13:34, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

Bochum[edit]

Thank you for your recent edit to this page. However, this sentence doesn't quite make sense: "A total of 2007 live on an urban area of ​​145.4 sq km in total 376 586 inhabitants." There were another couple of mistakes, an English word left out and a German word (well, part of one, in any event) left in that I removed, but it would be nice if you could take care of this one yourself. Thanks. Marrante (talk) 06:02, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for catching that. I pulled the data from the German version of the page, and tried to Anglify it, but it seems I missed a couple things. Should be fixed now. Listmeister (talk) 14:14, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

Amerind[edit]

The HUGE embedded list is not helpful but effectively breaks the readability of the article. If you think it is important that readers have acces to the putative members of this unsupported language family I think you should build a list and place a link to the list in the article. The MOS clearly says to avoid embedded lists of this size.·ʍaunus·snunɐw· 19:43, 15 July 2012 (UTC)

  • Not only is the "huge embedded list" helpful, but it's the whole point of the Amerind hypothesis. Whether you agree with the hypothesis or not, an article about a hypothesis should say what the hypothesis, well, hypothesizes. The Amerind theory says "the following languages are related...." List
    The list is not a list of individual languages, it is a classifiction scheme of language groups. When I produced the list, I tried to make it as short as possible based on which groups already had Wikipedia articles. For the most part, it is only the "leaves" of the tree that are blue-lettered. That's because higher-up groupings don't have articles. (That was the plan anyway; more has been added by people who thought that a more extensive list would be even more helpful).
    I don't understand why you just removed such a huge chunk of content without discussing it on the talk page first. Listmeister (talk) 20:45, 15 July 2012 (UTC)
    • Hey there, I just saw this discussion. I don't know much about the topic/subject matter, however I think you'd be better off using Template:Clade in its place. I know it's quite an undertaking updating the to this type, but it'd be the best way to fit the manual of style, and tighten it all up. In all honesty, most language-oriented articles with etymological and origination validation should use this to explain the sources, but I digress. I haven't the time to update this, so I'd recommend having a look at how you can implement this. Also, as it's a table, it can be made collapsible; perhaps even nesting the collapses might have some merit (if you're savvy enough with how to do this using wiki; I haven't looked at your edit history to ascertain your skill level). Good luck, and for any pointers, just ask me on my talk page. --rm 'w avu 02:07, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
