Disambiguation link notification for April 18[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Religion in Scotland, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Gerald Gardner (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.

Request for mediation rejected[edit]

The request for formal mediation concerning Honorific nicknames in popular music, to which you were listed as a party, has been declined. To read an explanation by the Mediation Committee for the rejection of this request, see the mediation request page, which will be deleted by an administrator after a reasonable time. Please direct questions relating to this request to the Chairman of the Committee, or to the mailing list. For more information on forms of dispute resolution, other than formal mediation, that are available, see Wikipedia:Dispute resolution.

Restoration (Scotland)[edit]

I see you have been doing sterling work on Restoration (Scotland). As you can see, I have just completed a small clean up, and have some requests.

If you add a short citation please make sure that you give the short citation the same date as the long citation. I have fixed several short citations which had different dates from the long citations. In each case I have set the short to the the long after checking that the date used in the long is the same as that in the World Cat entry for the ISBN. If in fact you used a different edition and the short citation carried the correct year then please adjust the short and long citations to that year and alter the ISBN, publisher etc used inthe long citation.

If you remove text as you did with this Revision of 22:35, 19 April 2015 then if you remove a short citation please either remove the long citation, (unless of course the long citation supports other short citations), or as an alternative move the long citation into the "Further reading" section.

Also the templates {{sfn}} and {{harvnb}} used to generate links for short citations use pp=, but templates such as {{cite book}} used to create long citations use pages=. What can one expect as Wikipedia is a horse designed by a very large ever changing committee (or "Arn't standard wonderful? Ther are so many to choose from.")

Hi. Thanks for that. A couple of things I did not know here, but I am now better informed. I was also planning to come back to the citations and sort out a few problems that remain after a suitable length of time in a darkened room. You may have made the most accurate summary of the difficulties so far seen. I can also honestly say that as bad a job as I might have made of them, the time spent on them outnumbered the time spent writing text by about two to one. All the best.--SabreBD (talk) 16:03, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
