List of drainage areas
Thanks a lot for your help, Rmhermen. As far as I understood, if there is a conflict between the interwikis (if the page added wikidata before) you have to first remove the incorrectly added data page and then add the correct one. Am I right? My most additions are interwikis in English wiki and I did not know the recent changes (wikidata - interwikis and infoboxes). Could you also provide a help page for these info? Regards, Emre
Hallo, I see you have restored a set of redlinked list entries with the comment that redlinks are good.
First, let me agree that in some situations redlinks ARE good. For instance, in a scientific article, a redlink to a species that does not yet have a WP article is a good thing: the species can readily be proven to exist, and an article will be welcome when it arrives.
The same is not necessarily true of possibly small, possibly WP:hoax items such as bogs. The function of the list here is to assemble for convenience a way of accessing the existing WP articles on those places which have already been established as notable. Each one should therefore have a bluelink (and probably a citation too). It is therefore inappropriate to include redlinks; articles should be written first, then linked. I'd like therefore to restore my changes, if that's all right with you. Chiswick Chap (talk) 08:26, 30 May 2014 (UTC)
- I disagree entirely with your supposed definition of what a list is for - and note that you have removed U.s. national landmarks! Rmhermen (talk) 03:30, 28 June 2014 (UTC)
Refiloe Maele Phoolo
Sorry for, as it turns out, needlessly getting you to delete the page Refiloe Maele Phoolo. :-\ It was only after looking at the page creator's other edits that I realised they were apparently trying to create a redirect to Cassper Nyovest aka 'Refiloe Maele Phoolo'. Hence I recreated it with the proper redirect syntax. --220 of Borg 04:09, 27 June 2014 (UTC)
@JamesBWatson: @Ronhjones: Just out of curiosity, did you look at the articles talk page (and the links there) before declining this speedy? You might disagree with if it's 'highly promotional' as is, but you're basically 'validating' this editors evasion of the actions taken by other administrators. If nothing else, fix the page histories and put it back under the right name, please. Reventtalk 06:44, 27 June 2014 (UTC)
- I did read and article and the talk page. It looks pretty much like a standard company article to me. Rmhermen (talk) 03:32, 28 June 2014 (UTC)
