Nevill Drury[edit]

It seems no one informed you that an article you weighed in on before, Nevill Drury, has been nominated for deletion. Actually, and strangely, the Talk page has been nominated for deletion. Here is a link to the Miscellany for Deletion page: [1]. Much of the discussion is on the talk page of the article due to the confusion.

Ibid[edit]

Hi, you put a Template:Ibid tag on Gun politics in the United States in the Notes section, which has 9 items enumerated a thru i.

I couldn't find Ibid or Op. cit. anywhere on the page, and the only place Idem appeared was within the words epidemiology and epidemic. Where exactly is the problem? --172.162.120.171 (talk) 02:27, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

I have no idea what happened with putting the Ibid template in. Coincidentally, I ended up going over the article again with AutoWikiBrowser (AWB) a few hours later and it took the template out. AWB doesn't often make mistakes (or I've rarely caught it making mistakes like this) but this looks like one. No idea what set it off but it looks fine now.

Well, it moved the Ibid tag from Notes to References. I finally found the problem. The Ibid did not show up in the displayed text because it was part of a duplicate named reference.
I didn't find it until I clicked [edit] and checked the inner code. AWB should have caught the duplicate reference thingy. Anyway, problem solved. Thank you. --172.162.120.171 (talk) 17:43, 17 February 2014 (UTC)
Glad you found it. I went over the article when you brought it to my attention and couldn't find the "ibid" either. Then again, I didn't notice that AWB had only moved the template between edits so my attention to detail is apparently not too good at the moment. Cheers, Pigman☿/talk 17:49, 17 February 2014 (UTC)
