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)

New to dab'ing[edit]

Can I over disambiguate? Like the template says on British folklore (disambiguation)...I'm not sure how to exactly interpret what it says. I want to edit the disambig. page to redirect to Category:British folklore, but that strikes me as probably wrong. Also, should some articles sometimes links to a dab page? If I don't get rid of all 10 or 11 links, say I only do 3 or 4, I should leave the listing alone? Sorry if I'm unclear. Xaxafrad (talk) 07:12, 31 December 2014 (UTC)

I don't know what you mean about the template on British folklore (disambiguation), but no, a disambiguation page should never be redirected to a category. I'm not sure what you mean by "over disambiguate," either, but WP:Disambiguation has a whole section on what does not belong on a disambiguation page.
Should some articles sometimes link to a dab page? Yes, but rarely. This is covered in the section on links to disambiguation pages.
If you can't resolve all, or almost all, of the existing links to a dab page, then don't edit the monthly listing. --R'n'B (call me Russ) 10:11, 31 December 2014 (UTC)

Robert Shirley, Russo-Persian War (1804–13)[edit]

I had to remove the changes that were made by a banned user (Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Beh-nam/Archive & LouisAragon). You can make your disambiguation fixes again if you want to. Oh and Happy New Year! Bladesmulti (talk) 07:16, 4 January 2015 (UTC)

Correcting the spelling of the 'Hurdy-gurdy' category in Commons.[edit]

Dear Russ, Face-smile.svg

Happy New Year; I hope you are keeping well?

You helped me sort out some categories on 12 September 2014 and I wonder if you'd be kind enough to help me once again, please? Thank you in advance for your consideration.

I have been working for some time on the article about the Hurdy-gurdy. One of the changes I wanted to apply to this article (and others associated with this instrument) for quite a while, is to make the spelling of the name conform to the entry in the Oxford English Dictionary: hurdy-gurdy (plural: hurdy-gurdies); that is, with the hyphen.

Our friend ChrisGualtieri has very kindly helped me with renaming the titles of all the relevant articles, but we also need to correct the spelling of the name as it appears in the category, by adding the hyphen: {{commons category|Hurdy Gurdy}}.

Is this something you could do for me, please Russ? I'd be very grateful to you if you would.

Many thanks for your time and assistance; this is, of course, not urgent, so I will wait patiently for your reply.

Until then, please keep well and happy.

With kind regards for now; Face-smile.svg

Article On Tv Chennel[edit]

Sory For broken english :(

dear! Madni Channel is a Tv Channel, but this article redirect to dawat e islami, why? plz rollback to thais article. --Obaid Raza (talk) 16:37, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

You would have to ask TheRedPenOfDoom. The article that used to be at Madni Channel was merged with another one called MadaniChannel, then moved to Madani Channel, and then finally redirected by that user to the current target. I know nothing about all this. --R'n'B (call me Russ) 16:56, 16 January 2015 (UTC)
