Re: Geoffrey Nunberg: When creating stubs, please try to include a little bit more context so that the stub can be expanded by someone else. I see you're new, though, so: Welcome!

Stubs[edit]

Your instincts are quite right, Ph7five, and adding a stub template and category is absolutely the right thing to do. The only thing I would suggest beyond what you're doing is to include a complete sentences or two with some context: the person's name in bold (by writing '''linguist's name'''), profession, maybe where they teach, perhaps a book title or two (as you've done) and preferably why the person or the book matters: "She is influential in the field of cognitive psychophonetics" or whatever. See the section "Ideal stub article" at Wikipedia:Stub for more information. Again, your instincts are great. Let me know if I can be of any assistance. Chick Bowen 00:52, 6 November 2005 (UTC)

P.S. I've already gotten Geoffrey Nunberg started in that direction. Chick Bowen 00:53, 6 November 2005 (UTC)

February 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Juggernaut may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "[]"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • this way range from [[H.G. Wells]]<ref>{{cite web |url=http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/juggernaut] |title=Wiktionary |accessdate=2014-02-13}}</ref> and [[Henry Wadsworth Longfellow|Longfellow]]<ref

Thanks, BracketBot (talk) 18:39, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for February 14[edit]

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

Dear DPL_bot, You sher think like a machine! Maybe the link really would have been okay to the disambig page, where the first link was to wagon and fingered the others as derivative but I fixed it to bandwagon effect, which is okay (Just look at the picture: Can you bots do that yet?) and should satisfy your algorithmic approach. So tnx 4 the headsup... - phi (talk) 09:48, 14 February 2014 (UTC)
