Link[edit]

Why must I have a disambiguated link? aṅgrej(ī) simply means "English", anything English, not specifically the English language. Tuncrypt 21:19, 26 May 2007 (UTC)

Alright. It shall remain unlinked then. Tuncrypt 21:30, 26 May 2007 (UTC)

America[edit]

Hey thanks for supporting my attempt to get America to redirect to the United States. Unfortunately it just closed, with no consensus found. I guess this is site is slowly turning into the "Please-The-World" Wikipedia as opposed to the English Langage one. BH (Talk) 18:21, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

I just checked that link you put on my talk page. I don't know why people don't realize that this is an English language site. BH (Talk)
You know I'm starting to think that one day we'll be forced into a debate over the use of the term "North America". I already see the argument being made that since Native American's were here first, we should use one of their names for the continent. BH (Talk) 14:19, 5 June 2007 (UTC)
Good Point, that would make more sense since wikipedia is anti-US Imperialism. BH (Talk) 14:34, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

About "fixing" redirects[edit]

Hi Disavian, please read this: WP:Redirect#Don't fix links to redirects that aren't broken. Thanks. --Tkynerd 21:44, 9 June 2007 (UTC)

I'm aware of that page; however, I'm not doing it for performance reasons; I'm trying to clean up the Special:Whatlinkshere for Georgia Institute of Technology, a tool I've used a few times in order to expand related categories and articles. Is that a valid use for bypassing redirects? —Disavian (talk/contribs) 21:47, 9 June 2007 (UTC)
Why are you trying to "clean up" incoming links for Georgia Institute of Technology? Articles, unlike dab pages, are supposed to have incoming links. I'm confused; enlighten me! :-) --Tkynerd 22:07, 9 June 2007 (UTC)
When using Special:Whatlinkshere, redirects that have links to them have those links pasted into that page. Right? For pages with redirects containing a significant number of links (ex: Georgia Tech), the Special:Whatlinkshere page doesn't follow the rules on how many links to list on a page, making link counting difficult. In addition, if a page links to both Georgia Tech and Georgia Institute of Technology, it will appear twice on the Special:Whatlinkshere for Georgia Institute of Technology. These are all minor complaints, I know, but it seems worth it to me to take care of these problems. Also, there is no "Georgia Tech University," so that one should *always* be bypassed. —Disavian (talk/contribs) 22:14, 9 June 2007 (UTC)

Djokovic Name Change[edit]

Do you find it at all discouraging or suspicious, as I do, that everyone opposing the Djokovic name change happens to be a Serbian national making the same fallacious argument ad infinitum? I'm fairly new to editing WP, but both the letter and the spirit of the policy are conclusively on our side here. Should we contact a mediator? -- Yano 22:17, 10 September 2007 (UTC)

Isn't plotting against users fun and exciting? ;-) --GOD OF JUSTICE 04:49, 11 September 2007 (UTC)

You shouldn't thank me. We both know this is more trouble than it's worth. :-) -- Yano 04:31, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

Reverting the deletion tag[edit]

Don't reinstate the deletion tag that was on Novak Djokovic. It says not to do so if it is removed -- which anyone can do for any reason whatsoever.

Also, avoid an edit war. It is undignified. -- Yano 03:56, 15 September 2007 (UTC)

I didn't mean to suggest you were edit warring. No harm in warning against doing so, however, especially in these circumstances.
Also I must say, your prose is the most brilliant I have read in a while. Too bad no one else will appreciate it. -- Yano 05:19, 15 September 2007 (UTC)
At this point, I am fairly content. In any other forum, our proof would have been considered conclusive. Indeed, had our position been the status quo, most courts would have dismissed any case against us without trial, the matter being so common-sense. I daresay logicians such as Bertrand Russell and Kant himself would have praised our logic and our eloquence in expressing it. (Tongue somewhere in cheek!)
There is some truth to it, of course. While enforcement is outside our hands, that is no fault of our own. To our credit, every power alloted to us, as editors and as arguers, we handled well. What comes of it is outside our hands.
As for me, being of a very judicious nature, it is less than ideal that I cannot enforce policy and reason once it is plainly and patiently explained. These circumstances will likely affect my desire to edit here in the future. For the time being, I will continue getting acquainted with things, hopefully to see if there are not arbitrators to whom we can submit judgment for common-sense matters such as these.
What I have seen as an editor so far, however, is not as pleasant as what I saw as a reader. -- Yano 23:43, 15 September 2007 (UTC)

You are welcome...[edit]

Thank you for changing the link, there will no doubt be an article started regarding this. Cheers, --Bulleid Pacific 12:12, 15 September 2007 (UTC)

Nobel Prize[edit]

Since you stated in the survey that "it annoys me that this prize is known as a Nobel Prize when it isn't one", could you please help explain to Vision Thing in Talk:Nobel Prize#Economics why the econ prize is not a Nobel Prize? It is currently included as one in the Nobel Prize article due to his edit and he is steadfast in his belief regardless of what evidence I present. Thanks! –panda 17:15, 2 October 2007 (UTC)

Nobel Prize related articles[edit]

Could you comment about using "Nobel Prize in Economics" instead of the prize's official name in an article's content/template? I'm thinking specifically about:

Should the name of the prize in these templates be "Nobel Prize in Economics" instead of "Bank of Sweden Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel" (or "Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel")? The current argument for using "Nobel Prize in Economics" is that it is the common name. It's the same argument for using "Nobel Prize in Economics" in other articles. –panda 03:44, 9 October 2007 (UTC)

panda has initiated a discussion at Template_talk:Nobel_Prize_in_Economics. I think you are a pretty objective editor (despite my initial qualms). You might wish to participate. --Anthon.Eff 23:39, 20 October 2007 (UTC)

Duotang[edit]

I notice that you have edited Duotang. I'd be grateful if you could keep an eye on it because there is an anon IP address that keeps adding nonsensical unreferenced stories into it. Thanks. Hu (talk) 23:48, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

I've added it to my watchlist and will do the best I can, but I'm not confident that I'll be able to reliably identify the nonsensical edits very well, since I'm not that familiar with the subject matter (I only disambiguated a link in the article). But I do review edits to articles on my watchlist with popups, so maybe I'll be able to see stuff that doesn't make any sense. I'll particularly keep an eye out for anons on there. --Tkynerd (talk) 06:00, 22 January 2008 (UTC)
OK, now I feel a bit silly because I've reviewed the edit history, and I clearly see the unsourced nonsense that keeps getting added. I'll try to help keep it clear. --Tkynerd (talk) 06:04, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

Rollback[edit]

Hello Tkynerd, I have granted rollback rights to your account; the reason for this is that after a review of some of your contributions, I believe I can trust you to use rollback correctly by using it for its intended usage of reverting vandalism, and that you will not abuse it by reverting good-faith edits or to revert-war. For information on rollback, see Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback and Wikipedia:Rollback feature. If you do not want rollback, just let me know, and I'll remove it. Good luck. Acalamari 22:26, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

That's excellent, and you're welcome. :) Good luck. Acalamari 20:27, 19 February 2008 (UTC)


This edit was brought to my attention, as was the edit war on that page. Can you please explain why you used rollback on that edit? That's not the correct usage of rollback, as Allstarecho's edits weren't actually vandalism. Acalamari 16:23, 3 March 2008 (UTC)

Well, as long as you plan to be more careful with rollback, and remember not to use it when in a dispute, you'll be fine. Acalamari 16:31, 4 March 2008 (UTC)
That's good to know. Thanks. Acalamari 19:13, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

Staten Island Railway[edit]

Hi Tim!

I notice that you have added the Staten Island Railway to the list of rapid transit systems. It has been discussed before, whether to include or not include this line. And I have started a new discussion at Talk:List of rapid transit systems#Staten Island Railway. Please leave a comment there! --Kildor (talk) 08:41, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

Hey you! Thanks, done. Sorry to have caused the trouble; I wasn't thinking about the criteria when I added it. --Tkynerd (talk) 18:20, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

Template talk:European topic[edit]

While DABing the Romanian page, I saw your note on this page. It seems that the intent of this page is to point to all the "peoples" of European countries. There appear to be articles for most of the "peoples" of Europe, i.e Romanians, Danish people, etc. Do you see any problem with changing the DAB page links in this template to the corresponding "peoples" articles? - Canglesea (talk) 03:07, 29 June 2008 (UTC)

That sounds excellent, thanks. When I looked at the template, I wasn't sure what the intent of all those links was, which was the reason for my note. By all means dab them, and they'll (finally!) stop showing up as incoming links on the dab pages I work on. Thanks, Tkynerd (talk) 04:06, 29 June 2008 (UTC)
I have copied our discussion over to the Template talk:Europe topic page to verify my understanding of the purpose of the template. If no objections, I will make the changes in the next few weeks.

Stanley Street, Liverpool[edit]

Hi, I got a messgage from yourself saying that my article Stanley Street, Liverpool should not be deleted, but there is a deletion notice on it. Could you please help me, and remove the deletion notice from my article? (Richie wright1980 (talk) 01:11, 10 July 2008 (UTC))

I did not argue that the article (and BTW, please see WP:OWN) should not be deleted, but that it did not qualify for speedy deletion. There is now a discussion about deleting it, linked from the template on the article page. Please make your voice heard in that discussion. You may also find Wikipedia:Help, my article got nominated for deletion! helpful. --Tkynerd (talk) 04:10, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

Leave it to Beaver[edit]

Consensus is required for both the removal and addition of content. The section you put back was added without discussion 4 days ago. I didn't see you protest the major change that time. Note that the anon who added it, did the same on 21 June, when it's need was questioned by User:Lazylaces and was removed by User:Dudesleeper. --Atlan (talk) 10:44, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

Not entirely conceding your point. Major additions should reach consensus on whether they're to be kept if they are questioned; major deletions should always be discussed first. In any case, the appropriate place for this discussion is at Talk:Leave It to Beaver, not here. Finally, it's not my responsibility to monitor every page on my watchlist for every change that's made, and your imputation of responsibility is ridiculous. --Tkynerd (talk) 18:21, 20 August 2008 (UTC)
Well, I didn't mean to imply that that's your responsibility, sorry about the confusion. I just wanted to inform you that the section was a recent addition, which was already deleted a few months ago. I thought you might have missed that. Yes, the appropriate place to discuss this is the article talk page, but I doubt it will attract more editors than just you and me.--Atlan (talk) 23:51, 21 August 2008 (UTC)
It already has. :) Thanks for the clarification. --Tkynerd (talk) 17:54, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

ucla[edit]

why do you keep deleting my changes to the establishment of ucla? i have researched the topic at great length and it seems pretty clear that 1881, is the correct date, given that the state normal school was changed to the southern branch of the UC. please compare this history of Ariz State, SDSU, SJSU, SFSU and chico state, and you will see they are all former normal schools and trace their establishment to the creation of the normal school. same thing should be true with ucla. also, take a look at the history of the outlook, the forerunner of the daily bruin; and the history of the ucla's graduate school of education - both trace their roots to the los angeles state normal school

Chips[edit]

Thanks for your comment on the Talk:French fries page. You title your comment "Strong Oppose", but the content of your comment appears to say the opposite. The proposal is that the Chips article (covering the U.K. definition of chips) should be merged into the United Kingdom section of the French fries article. Strong Oppose means that you want to keep a separate (U.K.) Chips article. I think you meant Strong Support. --macrakis (talk) 17:56, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Hey! Thanks for your comment. :) Actually I'm in favor of the status quo, so I oppose the merge. Currently there is no Chips article -- it's a redirect -- and that's what I want to keep. --Tkynerd (talk) 21:43, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
In the status quo, the merge has already happened -- confusing, I know. "Strong Oppose" means that you want a separate UK Chips article. --macrakis (talk) 22:54, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
That takes us beyond "confusing" and into the realm of "stupid." Why are we having a discussion on something that's already happened? Anyway, I will clarify my position...thank you for clarifying the discussion for me! :) --Tkynerd (talk) 22:57, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Disambiguation link fixing one-day contest[edit]

I have decided to put on a mini-contest within the November 2013 monthly disambiguation contest, on Saturday, November 23 (UTC). I will personally give a $20 Amazon.com gift card to the disambiguator who fixes the most links on that server-day (see the project page for details on scoring points). Since we are not geared up to do an automated count for that day, at 00:00, 23 November 2013 (UTC) (which is 7:00 PM on November 22, EST), I'll take a screenshot of the project page leaderboard. I will presume that anyone who is not already listed on the leaderboard has precisely nine edits. At 01:00, 24 November 2013 (UTC) (8:00 PM on November 23, EST), I'll take a screenshot of the leaderboard at that time (the extra hour is to give the board time to update), and I will determine from that who our winner is. I will credit links fixed by turning a WP:DABCONCEPT page into an article, but you'll have to let me know me that you did so. Here's to a fun contest. Note that according to the Daily Disambig, we currently have under 256,000 disambiguation links to be fixed. If everyone in the disambiguation link fixers category were to fix 500 links, we would have them all done - so aim high! Cheers! bd2412 T 02:06, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
