Doctors (2000 TV series)[edit]

Hi, Just wondered why you have changed to the name of the above article? It has been going by Doctors (soap opera) for a long time and is a more accurate name for the article, as it is a soap opera. I am unaware of any discussion on the change as a proposal. Thanks. Adamiow (talk) 19:25, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi Adamiow, it's per the naming guideline at WP:NCTV#Additional disambiguation, which doesn't advocate disambiguation by genre. --Rob Sinden (talk) 09:59, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
Also, I'm assuming that the reason that it isn't at Doctors (TV series) is because of the ambiguity between it and various programmes called The Doctors (TV series). Therefore, Doctors (soap opera) isn't sufficient disambiguation, as The Doctors (1963 TV series) is also a soap opera. --Rob Sinden (talk) 10:06, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
Sorry for the delay - been away. Personally, I think having Doctors (soap opera) or with a year added if necessary is more accurate. Nevertheless, having considered it further, do you feel that the names are different enough to have the article at Doctors (TV series), with a hatnote to The Doctors? Thanks. Adamiow (talk) 20:35, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
Hi again Adamiow, the naming guidelines don't allow for "soap opera" to be used as disambiguation. But personally, yes, I think Doctors (TV series) is sufficient enough, in the same way that Doctors (novel) would be disambiguated enough from any novel called The Doctors (novel). --Rob Sinden (talk) 08:03, 7 August 2014 (UTC)
Or indeed, the same way that Doctor (film) is considered suitably disambiguated from The Doctor (1991 film) and The Doctor (2013 film). --Rob Sinden (talk) 08:06, 7 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for your reply. That's great. I will move it over when I have a chance. Thanks. Adamiow (talk) 08:48, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for December 9[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Supernatural (1977 TV series), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Simon Langton. 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.

Bond template[edit]

Stop edit warring: you're being disruptive. This is simple common sense, not an exercise in mindless wiki-lawyering. You have an issue with the status quo, then open an RfC - ditto with the tom thumb article. - SchroCat (talk) 10:25, 18 February 2015 (UTC)

The edit warring at the Tom Thumb (film) article is all you. The status quo on the was with the house style, not the lowercase. You have yet to come up with a guideline that supports your move to lowercase. --Rob Sinden (talk) 10:33, 18 February 2015 (UTC)
No: It was in place from 2006 to 2013, so perhas you could try to stick to honesty on this one, rather then try and mislead by selectively decising what the sq is? - SchroCat (talk) 11:06, 18 February 2015 (UTC)
I think 18 months in a state which conforms with our MOS counts as status quo. --Rob Sinden (talk) 11:13, 18 February 2015 (UTC)

Rex Ray[edit]

Good catch there! But I must apologise: I didn't check the talk page, as I should have done, before removing the copyvio and rewriting a mini-stub. That means that your (even stubbier!) rewrite has not been used. I'm sorry about that, it was careless of me. Moving forward, would you like to incorporate anything you want from it into the page, and then blank the temp version - which should then fairly quickly disappear? I'd be grateful. Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 00:49, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

Thanks @Justlettersandnumbers: - I don't think there's much on my stub that isn't included on your version! --Rob Sinden (talk) 08:59, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
OK, thanks. If you clear all content from it, or add {{Db-g7}}, it should gracefully disappear. Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 11:08, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
