Disambiguation link notification for April 30[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited List of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero episodes, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Sheik (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.

Disambiguation link notification for September 3[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Homer Watson, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Kitchener (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.

Thank you![edit]

You deserved a barnstar if I did. Nonetheless, I hope you'll accept my sincere thanks - work's so much lighter when it is shared, and I agree that behind-the-scenes work on something as valuable as the RD is satisfying for its own sake. There are many who don't seem to appreciate what a welcome the RD can be to many users (I've seen comments at Village Pump etc), yet I'll bet there are a fair number of new editors who make their first steps on the RD, then move to content (hard to track if that shift is accompanied by creation of a username). Cheers! -- Scray (talk) 01:41, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link fixing one-day contest[edit]

I have decided to put on a mini-contest within the November 2013 monthly disambiguation contest, on Saturday, November 23 (UTC). I will personally give a $20 Amazon.com gift card to the disambiguator who fixes the most links on that server-day (see the project page for details on scoring points). Since we are not geared up to do an automated count for that day, at 00:00, 23 November 2013 (UTC) (which is 7:00 PM on November 22, EST), I'll take a screenshot of the project page leaderboard. I will presume that anyone who is not already listed on the leaderboard has precisely nine edits. At 01:00, 24 November 2013 (UTC) (8:00 PM on November 23, EST), I'll take a screenshot of the leaderboard at that time (the extra hour is to give the board time to update), and I will determine from that who our winner is. I will credit links fixed by turning a WP:DABCONCEPT page into an article, but you'll have to let me know me that you did so. Here's to a fun contest. Note that according to the Daily Disambig, we currently have under 256,000 disambiguation links to be fixed. If everyone in the disambiguation link fixers category were to fix 500 links, we would have them all done - so aim high! Cheers! bd2412 T 03:06, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Inspirer[edit]

Hello Matt Deres. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Inspirer, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: The reason given is not a valid speedy deletion criterion. Thank you. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 03:36, 31 December 2013 (UTC)

you're welcome...[edit]

You're welcome, and thanks for saying so! —Steve Summit (talk) 18:25, 17 January 2014 (UTC)

Commons[edit]

Could you upload/donate 1/2 of those shark tooth image at Commons? TitoDutta 20:07, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

I suppose, but they're really not very good (shot with an iPhone camera) and their use is limited because they haven't been properly identified yet. I would retake the shots with a proper camera, but my daughter turned the tooth in to the school office. Some poor kid evidently brought it in for show and tell and then lost it and she wanted to make sure it got back to them. Matt Deres (talk) 11:35, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
I've uploaded them:

  • I specially liked the way you measured it using scale. Excellent approach. Thank you for uploading. TitoDutta 15:47, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

Comment on the Gazetteer Idea[edit]

There is, of course, the "political" problem that if you propose more than one of these things at a time (e.g. schools and places) the opposition to the concept doubles as the two interest groups support each other. A piecewise approach would probably deliver better results. RomanSpa (talk) 17:02, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
