Ethnic groups[edit]

I see that the user Sesshomaru keeps bringing the section Ethnic groups to the old variant, first saying it is cleanup unnecessary overlinking and other redundancy, then Rv nonsensical edits.

In fact Sesshomaru's variant contains redundancies: Ruska Roma, Gitanos, Norwegian and Swedish Travellers and the Romnichal are already supposed by the first entry Romani people. Then he deletes the Lom, Lyuli, Dom, the South Asian groups, all known as Gypsies. I invite him to explain his view on this issue, otherwise we go to 3RR.

Reasons are: Romani people is a redirect, Lom and Dom are disambiguation pages and say nothing concerning the dab term, Quinquilleros fails MoS:DAB#Red links and Category:Fictional Gypsies does not belong per MoS:DAB#Categories. The rest does not meet the requirements of MoS:DAB#Individual entries. That make sense? Lord Sesshomaru (talkedits) 20:15, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
Good you pointed out about Lom and Dom, I'll direct them to the proper pages. However, Roma people is in process of moving to Romani people. As you can see the introduction of the article presents the Romani people, sourced.
Don't worry Roma will not be moved to Romani people since it was proved on talk page that the terms are equivalent Rezistenta (talk) 07:58, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

And Quinquilleros will stay out for a while, until an article will be made. OK? Desiphral-देसीफ्राल 20:22, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

Ok. May I suggest a partial rv? Lord Sesshomaru (talkedits) 20:24, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
Ah, I already did something. Tell me how do you consider it. Desiphral-देसीफ्राल 20:26, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
Lom and Dom should not be masked per MoS:DAB#Individual entries, Anatolia and Armenia should not be linked, the fifth entry should only have one relevant blue link, and the category should go. Other than that, it's fine. Lord Sesshomaru (talkedits) 20:31, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
Right Desiphral-देसीफ्राल 20:40, 3 July 2008 (UTC)


This is not conforming to the dab guidelines as the user claims. If anything, this disambiguation page is much worse than it was before. How is removing legitimate items (as well a useful category) helping here? Lord Sesshomaru (talkedits) 06:31, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Please have a read of WP:DAB and WP:MOSDAB. In particular, please note WP:DAB#What not to include. A dab page is only supposed to disambiguate between different bluelinks, not add content that belongs on the article pages themselves. If I have removed any items which you believe belong in the dab according to dab guidelines, could you please point them out individually so we may discuss them and come to agreement? Thank you.

Also please note that I removed the category per WP:MOSDAB#Categories. OttoTheFish (talk) 06:41, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
How dare you?! Please do not treat me like I'm some kind of idiot. I'm well aware of the dab guidelines thank you very much. Have a read of WP:MOSDAB#Categories yourself (it clearly says that name-related cats are fine). In fact, read all of WP:DAB and WP:MOSDAB. Inclusively, point out the exact section(s) that says a dab page should only consist of blue links. Lord Sesshomaru (talkedits) 06:49, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

I've removed the clean-up tag as it's been on a while and the clean-up section is swamped. I can't see that it needs anything specific. If anyone can think of improvements, please edit it or re-tag. Thanks, Boleyn2 (talk) 19:24, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
