From looking at your recent edits, you probably don't need the above references, but figured they're useful as a start for a talk page. Normally, edits from an account with a red-linked talk page and red-linked user page get higher scrutiny, as they are almost certainly new accounts. In your case, you've been editing for a while and creating a talk page for you removes one of those (literal) red flags. Regards, Tarl.Neustaedter (talk) 02:13, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

Category alphabetization[edit]

Hi Papyrus-winged ninja Akil, I noticed that you had recently tried to alphabetize a number of articles by changing the target of their category linkage to "licensed, XYZ" (for example you changed "Popeye 2" to "licensed, Popeye 2". I'm not sure if you're aware but the effect of this is to locate all of the "licensed, XYZ" games under the letter "L" in the main category ("Game Boy platform games"). So we'd see something like:

Aardvark, Amsterdam Armadillo
Basket, Bedroom, Bismuth
Candlestick, Candy cane, Caramel
Asterix (1993 video game), Laughter, Licorice, Locomotive, Popeye 2, Yogi Bear's Gold Rush

I assume that's not what you intended so I've reverted your changed. If you need help with how to properly categorize or alphabetize articles, I'd suggest asking at WP:HELPDESK. -Thibbs (talk) 10:32, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

  • One other thing: Please be more careful about your edit summaries. Comments like this are unhelpful because they don't accurately reflect the nature of the edit you've made. Only say something like "typo fixed" if you are truly fixing a typo. -Thibbs (talk) 10:34, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
I've noticed a similar problem with a number of mammal articles. Some of the changes are reasonable, so I've left those alone, but I've reverted those that create problems with the categorisation. Anaxial (talk) 19:28, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for November 8[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of rodents of the Caribbean, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Cuniculus. 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.
