Hi[edit]

When are you coming back? We need you and your work on disam links :)--BabbaQ (talk) 12:10, 16 November 2014 (UTC)

Good to see you back! :)--BabbaQ (talk) 12:54, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! -Niceguyedc Go Huskies! 01:10, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for the yeoperson[edit]

cleanup you did at List of United States post office murals. We , Buster and I, have taken on a large task of data entry here and (speaking for myself) often am as interested in just getting the job finished as going slowly and carefully and checking everything. It is comforting to have someone doing what you are doing behind us. Einar aka Carptrash (talk) 04:08, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

YOU magazine etc[edit]

Thanks for the fixups of the redirects for You (magazine). In trying to clear the mess, I thought I'd checked all the existing redirects (and a fair few articles did link to the wrong magazine) but obviously hadn't checked the What Links Here to "You (magazine) itself.

I was in two minds whether to put them on the existing DAB, so I thought it better initially to create a separate DAB which could then be easily merged if necessary (as indeed you have done). But I was remiss not to check those incoming links. Si Trew (talk) 08:21, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

It's all good. There were only 10-12 links. -Niceguyedc Go Huskies! 08:25, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

Sunderland[edit]

Just a note to say that Sunderland, County Durham is a better link than Sunderland, Tyne and Wear for the timescale before 1 April 1974. Keep up the good work! Mjroots (talk) 10:31, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Ah. That makes sense. I'll keep that in mind. -Niceguyedc Go Huskies! 10:38, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Rollback of Hz disambiguation[edit]

Please see edit summaries at [1] and [2] for explanation. SpinningSpark 17:24, 11 January 2015 (UTC)

It only "broke" 37 links, which isn't all that bad, and I fixed those links. There was little reason, however, to revert my disambiguation of those links, even if Hz is back to pointing to Hertz. -Niceguyedc Go Huskies! 19:20, 11 January 2015 (UTC)
There might be "little reason", but there is some reason: forcing the links to be piped unnecessarily adds, albeit slightly, to the "code clutter" in the edit window, which on some pages makes them virtually unreadable. SpinningSpark 20:31, 11 January 2015 (UTC)
This is not code clutter. The links are correct and what Niceguyedc did was right. There is much worse "code clutter" that this. Most importantly, Hz shouldn't point to Hertz, as explained at Talk:Hz. --Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 08:13, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

Sacramento[edit]

I didn't realise how many incoming there were! It took me ages to do the first well you said 21 but I think I managed about 50 in the end. But the place in California is obviously primary, and I am not American, so I have no bias that way, but patently it is. I have just done the usual BRD and so my B, your R and now the D, thanks for doing so. Si Trew (talk) 12:00, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

You are a bot?[edit]

You always do the same in all the items I have on my watchlist O_o.--McVeigh / talk 13:34, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

Nope, I'm not a bot. But the list I work off of is the recently added list of ambiguous links. What pages are you referring to? -Niceguyedc Go Huskies! 19:26, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
No, I am not referring to any particular page, just wondering, as I always see you do the same on many items.--McVeigh / talk 20:03, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

I have granted rollback rights to your account. After a review of some of your contributions, I believe you can be trusted to use rollback for its intended usage of reverting vandalism, and that you will not abuse it by reverting good-faith edits or to revert-war. For information on rollback, see Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback and Wikipedia:Rollback feature. If you do not want rollback, contact me and I will remove it. Good luck and thanks. 00:44, 20 January 2015 (UTC)– Gilliam (talk)

Epiphany[edit]

Hi Niceguyedc. I am confused. this page is nothing but a disambiguation page - it is even listed as such in the categories section at bottom. Did you have a look at it? I had a feeling that the copy-paste route is not how it is done, but I did it because the content of the page is 100% a disambiguation page. Please have a look. Thanks for your time. Rui ''Gabriel'' Correia (talk) 22:16, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

When there is no primary topic and many different possibilities for the target of a title, the base title (in this case Epiphany) is where the disambiguation page goes. The (disambiguation) title (Epiphany (disambiguation)) is used to redirect to the disambiguation page. The redirect should only be linked by pages intentionally linking to the disambiguation page (for example, the hatnote on Epiphany (holiday) links to Epiphany (disambiguation) because it is an intentional link to the disambiguation page). What this does is let those of us at WP:DPL (and the bots that help us) know that the link is intentional.
What was the intention of your copy-paste move? Were you planning to put something else at Epiphany? -Niceguyedc Go Huskies! 22:33, 21 January 2015 (UTC)
I still don't understand. So is this one wrong? There is no primary (what appears here to be a primary is actually redirected), but it does not redirect to "Inside Information". Besides the technical aspects, don't you think that Epiphany (holiday) does in fact warrant being considered the primary? Thanks for your patience. Rui ''Gabriel'' Correia (talk) 23:01, 21 January 2015 (UTC)
@Rui Gabriel Correia: Inside information is the primary topic for that title, and it points to the article on the subject, which is called Insider trading.
As for Epiphany, if you want to put Epiphany (holiday) at Epiphany, you'll need to start a discussion on the talk page, following the procedure laid out at WP:RM#CM. You'll want to use this template (filling in the reason you want to make the move):

{{subst:requested move
| new1 = Epiphany (holiday)
| current2 = Epiphany
| new2 = Epiphany (disambiguation)
| reason = Place here your rationale for the proposed page name change, ideally referring to applicable naming convention policies and guidelines, and providing evidence in support where appropriate. If your reasoning includes search engine results, please default to Google Books or Google News Archive before providing any web results. Do not sign this.}}

which will ask for a discussion to move the disambiguation page to Epiphany (disambiguation) and then to move Epiphany (holiday) to Epiphany. -Niceguyedc Go Huskies! 00:06, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

Thankyou for that. I will be adding more species for couple of weeks. Can you return then ? All the best and thanks again 86.174.118.54 (talk) 12:03, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

If there are more links to disambiguate, I'm sure I'll be there. :) -Niceguyedc Go Huskies! 12:09, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

Request for cleanup[edit]

Hi, I appreciate your assistance in cleaning up the disambiguation for the surname "Sonti". Thank you for your contribution. I have recently made edits to make the description more concise, such as a disambiguation should be. Could you go over it for me?

Thank you — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:9:7300:86B:4DE5:38E:16D1:6B3B (talk) 08:55, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

The second sentence uses POV language ("historically influential", "well known"), but other than that it looks fine. -Niceguyedc Go Huskies! 09:26, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thanks for fixing the DAB links on the various "xxxx (year) in British music charts" articles, much appreciated - the DABs are old but because I've been restructuring the tables and updating the articles they appear on your watchlist as "new" DABs. I try and review every link to make sure they are correct, but with one hundred titles and one hundred names to check on every article, the odd one or two slip under the radar. Apologies in advance for the years 1990 to 2004, which I have yet to update: I'm sure I'm going to unintentionally give you more work to do. Cheers. Richard3120 (talk) 15:06, 24 January 2015 (UTC)

It's all good. With WP:CLEANER, it's pretty easy to clean up links. -Niceguyedc Go Huskies! 23:24, 24 January 2015 (UTC)

Thank you, disambiguator of fame, for quality articles such as List of 2002 Seattle Mariners draft picks, for repairing thousands of links to disambiguation pages, creating redirects and dab redirects, for updating sports, especially the Seattle Mariners, for welcoming, warning and being a nice guy, - you are an awesome Wikipedian!

Lupton family[edit]

Thanks for your help. Can you please check the Lupton family page Cheers Mike — Preceding unsigned comment added by 121.219.105.232 (talk) 09:06, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

Just one (Trinity College, Cambridge). Other than that all links are good. -Niceguyedc Go Huskies! 09:10, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi there Mike again and thanks. I have done another Lupton family edit - can you please check? Mike — Preceding unsigned comment added by 121.219.105.232 (talk) 09:52, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

All links are good. -Niceguyedc Go Huskies! 09:54, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

sorry - I have done a few edits on Charles Roger Lupton page and one more on the Lupton gfamily page - please check them all. The Lupton family edit is not quite right Thanks Mike - o — Preceding unsigned comment added by 121.219.105.232 (talk) 10:18, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

Lupton family looks good. I linked the post-nominals on Charles Lupton. I see a few instances of "O.R.", but I'm not sure what that refers to. The paragraphs on Charles could use a couple inline references, as you've done on the other Lupton articles. -Niceguyedc Go Huskies! 10:31, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

Me again!

I really need your help please! Half way done the Lupton family page, I would like to have the heading Lupton Family in Leeds - and then, in ever so slightly smaller lettering underneath the word "Georgian". Then the following headings -- "Early Victorians" - and - "Later Victorians" - and - "20th century"- should be the same size as the Georgians heading do you know what I mean? Thanks Mike — Preceding unsigned comment added by 121.219.105.232 (talk) 10:51, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

Check the article. Is that what you wanted? -Niceguyedc Go Huskies! 11:01, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

you are so good to do this - it is ALMOST right! I may not have explained it too well.

I have tried to fix it up footnote number 32 and - Could you please put "italics" on the subheadings of the following men- Francis Martineau and descendants Arthur and descendants Charles and descendants Hugh and descendants

Thanks so much Mike — Preceding unsigned comment added by 121.219.105.232 (talk) 11:39, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

One last thing! Please check my refs on "Aspendale" (Australia) page Were you OK with those 4 sub-headings (4 men) in italics with the Lupton family page? Thanks Mike — Preceding unsigned comment added by 121.219.105.232 (talk) 11:47, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

The refs look fine, and so do the subheadings. -Niceguyedc Go Huskies! 11:56, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

Hello Nice Guy Please could you check the ref number 33 on the Lupton family page- it has a "Help" sign in red at the end of it, so I am sure that it is not quite right Thanks again for your help. Mike — Preceding unsigned comment added by 121.219.105.232 (talk) 08:34, 28 January 2015 (UTC)
