Please watch the notes on the section before changing apparently incorrect spelling on Annie in Wonderland. You aren't the first, and I don't suppose you'll be the last, but I rendered the sleeve notes verbatim for a reason.

Complicated Page Move[edit]

Got a bit of a complicated page move for ya. WEQP has switched it's callsign to WWEQ. While WWEM has switched it's callsign to WEQP. Thanks in advance. :) - NeutralhomerTalk • 22:52, 29 March 2015 (UTC)

No problem - I've got your back. I've been doing a huge TV listify project because of some CfDs for the last month or so. As a result, I have a massive backlog of radio call sign changes to work through, but I'll add this to the list. Cool? Mlaffs (talk) 22:46, 31 March 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, that will work just fine. :) Lemme know when you do the page moves, so I can update them right quick. :) Take Care...NeutralhomerTalk • 01:16, 1 April 2015 (UTC)
There you go. I even updated a couple of your sub-pages, too, to keep them in sync with the renamings. :>) Mlaffs (talk) 04:33, 5 April 2015 (UTC)
Thanks and double thanks! :) Much appreciated! :) - NeutralhomerTalk • 05:09, 5 April 2015 (UTC)

Heads up[edit]

Just wanted to let you know I created and implemented a new template, {{Mexico TV networks in state}}, to replace the old manual tallies of TV stations by network in each Mexican state list article. It is future proof for Cadena Tres and Radio Centro (should the latter pony up).

Also, I want advice on something. Should I remove the US border lists from such articles as Television stations in Coahuila? They're yet more proverbial dust magnets. Raymie (tc) 05:21, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

Sorry, just saw this one too - yeah, there's probably a better way to skin that cat if they're not being updated. Why not keep the narrative about the existence of the border stations, and then say something like "See List of television stations in Texas for stations in the x, y, and z markets.", with x, y, and z being some of the border towns?

Thanks for updating the WZDV page. I've been meaning to do that but have been busy. Thanks again...NeutralhomerTalk • 03:06, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

No problem - just working my way through the March call sign changes report. Couple of swaps to take care of, but been relatively quick work otherwise. Mlaffs (talk) 03:33, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
In a move that makes little sense, WZDV has changed it's callsign back to WMPW. Since there is a redirect in the way now, could you do the move on this one, please? Thanks in advance....NeutralhomerTalk • 07:28, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
Looks like someone beat me to it, although the links still need to be cleaned up. Mlaffs (talk) 23:02, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
Didn't even notice it had been moved, shows how much I pay attention. :) Fixed the links and templates. - NeutralhomerTalk • 04:24, 8 May 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 13[edit]

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

WP:Edit warring and WP:3RR[edit]

I know it is always good to be aware of the rules; You know them; I think you should read these before proceeding further. Happy editing. 7&6=thirteen () 01:11, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

Thanks; having been around here as long as you, and dragging this mop around, I absolutely needed the reminder about 3RR. I particularly appreciate you doing it in such a non-pointed manner. In the same spirit, I'd suggest you might want to give WP:BLOGS a quick once-over. Enjoy your weekend. Mlaffs (talk) 02:46, 10 May 2015 (UTC)
