Your place or mine ...?

I generally prefer unbroken discussions. If you leave a comment for me here, I will most likely respond to it here — my talk page — as an effort to keep the entire conversation in one place. Similarly, if I leave a comment on your talk page, please respond to it there.

At the same time, feel free to send an alert to me on this page about a comment you have left elsewhere.

Thank you!

Thank you so much for your help at Mary Kessell. I left last night with the intention of making additional corrections today and was pleasantly surprised to see it in the queue (thanks to your work). Much appreciated. All the best, France3470 (talk)

Change the name of an article, please[edit]

Hi Mike You merged the "Karoo System" and "Karoo Supergroup" articles a while ago. I therefore presume you are authorized to rename articles with a geological flavor.

The article on "Table Mountain" in South Africa, is named just that. But all the links to "Table Mountain", and the Wiki search engine, take you to "Table Mountain (disambiguous)" from which you then have to pick the Table Mountain you want to read about. There is no direct way to get to "Table Mountain" in South Africa.

Would you mind changing the name of the South African "Table Mountain" article to "Table Mountain, South Africa". It would be a great help. Oggmus (talk) 10:26, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

PS. Please ignore the above request. Have a look at the Talk page on Table Mountain for reasons that make this request entirely inappropriate. Oggmus (talk) 14:01, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
Answered there. Mikenorton (talk) 15:45, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi Mike, Still on the same subject: Would it be possible (and advisable) to redirect all upper/lower case variations on "Table Mountain" (table mountain, Table mountain, table Mountain, table mounTain, etc.) initially to the "Table Mountain" page, please? This would be in the spirit of Wiki policy. When searching for a page, I (for one) am generally not overly careful (nor do I always know in advance) about which words need to start with capital letters - I suspect that I am not unique in this respect. If the person lands on the "Table Mountain" page they do not want, then there is an immediate option to go to the "Disambiguation" page to find the right table mountain they are looking for.
