Welcome to my talk page. Here are some tips to help you communicate with me:

  • Please continue any conversation on the page where it was started.
    • Thus, if I have left a message on your talk page please DO NOT post a reply here. I will have your talk page on watch and will note when you have replied.
  • Add or respond to an existing conversation under the existing heading.
    • Indent your comment when replying by using an appropriate number of colons ':'.
    • Create a new heading if the original conversation is archived.
  • To initiate a new conversation on this page click on this link.
  • If you are expressing a concern about edits made by RussBot, it is extremely helpful if you include a link to a specific page or, even better, a link to a diff showing the actual edit that the bot made. This makes it much easier to diagnose and correct problems.
  • You should sign your comments. You can do this automatically by typing four tildes (~~~~).


A bowl of strawberries for you![edit]

Erdbeerteller01.jpg I apologize for my silly error, and hope this bowl of strawberries will help to make amends. Thank you for your work reverting vandals, and sorry for confusing you with the original vandal. ~Adjwilley (talk) 04:12, 18 May 2012 (UTC)
Thanks! No harm done. --R'n'B (call me Russ) 10:39, 18 May 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguations on The Acting Witan of Mercia article for resubmission[edit]

I've looked at your suggestions for the disambiguations of "English" and "British" early in the above article and am struggling to find any ambiguities. Could you explain them, please? Thanks.Snoobysoo (talk) 18:02, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

  • Please see the pages English and British, respectively. Those pages list all the articles on Wikipedia that might conceivably be referred to by either of those titles. Our goal is for internal links to take readers directly to the correct, relevant article. --R'n'B (call me Russ) 18:40, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

Madonna discography (disambiguation) listed at Redirects for discussion[edit]


An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect Madonna discography (disambiguation). Since you had some involvement with the Madonna discography (disambiguation) redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you have not already done so. Tavix | Talk  17:50, 15 May 2015 (UTC)


Hi R'n'B, I'm so sorry for reverting you - I had put a plate on my desk and I'm assuming that it somehow hit the mouse button which then reverted you, I was absolutely confused when I sat down to see "Action completed" Face-grin.svg,
Anyway just wanted to apologize :)
Happy editing, –Davey2010Talk 20:00, 20 May 2015 (UTC)

No worries at all. Stuff like that happens to all of us. --R'n'B (call me Russ) 20:30, 20 May 2015 (UTC)

Revert of a link from Bowser to Bowser (disambiguation) even if that redirects directly to Bowser[edit]

Hi, you undid two of my edits linking Bowser directly to Bowser. You changed them back to Bowser (disambiguation) even if that is a direct redirect to Bowser. Please explain why to keep these two unnecessary redirects. Thank you. --ProloSozz (talk) 21:52, 24 May 2015 (UTC)

As I said in both of my edit summaries, see WP:D#HOWTODAB. To save you the trouble, that page says, 'To link to a disambiguation page (rather than to a page whose topic is a specific meaning), link to the title that includes the text "(disambiguation)", even if that is a redirect—for example, link to the redirect "America (disambiguation)" rather than the target page at "America".' (Emphasis in original.) --R'n'B (call me Russ) 23:00, 24 May 2015 (UTC)

Re-run User:RussBot/Disambiguation not needed/001 (and 002)[edit]

Greetings, friend. Can you re-run this list? There should be under a thousand by now. Cheers! bd2412 T 13:42, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

  • I would be happy to, except that I'm having trouble finding the script that I ran to generate it. It looks like it wouldn't be too hard to re-write it, but it might take a few days until I have the time. --R'n'B (call me Russ) 14:02, 26 May 2015 (UTC)
    • No problem. It does seem like this would be the kind of thing where, over time, old instances will be fixed and new instances will accumulate. bd2412 T 15:04, 26 May 2015 (UTC)
