Disambiguation link notification for December 19[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Great Mell Fell, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Brittonic language (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.

Your reverts reverts[edit]

Why on Earth did you revert all my edits to Lake District fells sub-headings and then revert them again? That was a sheer waste of time wasn't it. FYI, however, the term "view" is not a good word for any sub-heading, it invites editorialising because a "view" from a hill depends on where you look and what your perspective is, as well as when the view was witnessed - views can change due to construction, deforestation, natural shifts, no view now is exactly the same as when Wainwright wrote his pictoral guides, for example, because of environmental changes, development and so forth. Whereas a "Summit" is a fixed geographical point and is all we need to focus on in an encyclopaedic manner to avoid subjective "I can see my house from here" type descriptions of "views". A lot of the descriptions of views in those articles are full of puffery, personal ideas about the "spectacular" sights, which are not supported by citations and such descriptions should really only be used when quoted from people like Wainwright, rather than editor POV. As such I cut back the sub-headings to produce a less dramatic format throughout the range of articles. You should respect that and leave off the trigger-happy Undo option next time you're uncertain about why such edits have been made - ask, it's not only good manners but will save you from wasting a lot of time - mine and yours, as you now know. I gather by your self-reverts that it finally dawned on you the reason for my edits. There were 214 articles to work through, I don't have the patience to type tons of edit summaries in addition to improving the content, life's too short - if they're that important ask the wiki-software designer's to make summaries mandatory rather than optional.

Thank you for your explanation, 82.8.252.13. But why on earth are you hiding behind an IP address, and not logging in to Wikipedia? I'm actually in agreement with your views. What I find difficult is the way you have gone about your edits, with no explanation and no opportunity to talk. I don't know if you'll see this comment - placing it on my own talk page is not a very reliable way of making contact! Silence-is-infinite (talk) 16:54, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

"But why on earth are you hiding behind an IP address, and not logging in to Wikipedia?" – don't want to use an account, anonymity isn't "hiding" it's a choice, IPs are human too you know, but when I have an account you'll be the first to know. I saw your reply though, glad we're in agreement, makes things easier. If you need to talk to them IPs do have a talk page too, you know, and receive "new message" notifications so long as they still have that IP next time they visit. My IP will remain this one for now. But as the discussion started here it may as well continue here if needs be. 82.8.252.13 (talk) 20:04, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

OK? before GA?[edit]

Hi Sii, you can qualify for dyk if your article is less than a week old or its a new GA. I suspect that your Mine article is bound for GA. My comment about "OK for GA" was to deter others who may propose that it waits until its a GA. Im keen to get it through before this. Do feel free to interfere in the DYK process if you think you can help. Thanks for the article. (I also improved the article on Head's adopted heir). Victuallers (talk) 22:00, 2 October 2014 (UTC)
