On The Rag[edit]

Adding an On The Rag link to Menstruation seems fit and tells quite a bit of history of the use of the expression since thankfully, most woman in our day and age no longer have to resort to the use of rags. Perhaps I could include a link to Feminine_hygiene? Marycontrary 10:31, 8 September 2007 (UTC)

The real question is, as I said in the edit summary: Would someone who was interested in menstruation really type in "OTR"? Or, is OTR a common abbreviation for menstruation? I don't think so in both cases. Per WP:Disambiguation, Disambiguation in Wikipedia is the process of resolving conflicts in article titles that occur when a single term can be associated with more than one topic, and per MOS:DAB, Keep in mind that the primary purpose of the disambiguation page is to help people find the information they want quickly and easily. These pages are not for exploration, but only to help the user navigate to a specific article. If we'd list every phrase on this dab page that can be abbreviated as OTR, this dab page would no longer be useful at all for disambiguation. Another point that is violated in keeping "On the Rag" linking to Menstrual cycle on the dab page is MOS:DAB#Piping, Do not pipe the name of the links to the articles being listed. I.e. in every way I can think of, "On the rag" does not belong here, and I still favor the removal of this entry. :-) – sgeureka t•c 11:59, 8 September 2007 (UTC)
The use of of the term "OTR" to mean "On The Rag" is spoken in this fashion so as not to be offensive, while at the same time, trying to make light of a situation Division of Sociomedical Sciences. It is not a short cut of texting but an actual part of vocabulary for many generations of woman throughout various societies museum of menstruation. Marycontrary 02:11, 9 September 2007 (UTC)
I guess you were quoting from those sources above, as your links didn't actually mention OTR or "On the rag". In either case, it's best to add the above to the menstruation cycle article, and then change the entry on the dab page to
Then you won't have any problem when the next dab editor comes by and tries to apply the same deletion rationale as I did. :-) – sgeureka t•c 01:21, 10 September 2007 (UTC)

Hi, sorry for a delayed reply. OK what about: What does OTR stand for? Thanks. Marycontrary 21:27, 11 September 2007 (UTC)

I am not doubting (anymore) that OTR means what you say it means. I was (and still am) questioning the entry's suitability for the dab page. At the moment, it seems more like a dictionary definition than a synonym or the title of a wiki article, so it should rather be included on wikt:OTR (which doesn't exist yet, hmm), not a dab page. See FTW and wikt:FTW for a similar case. The general rule among dab editors is "if it's mentioned in the linked article, then it's important for the dab page." But "On the rag" doesn't appear in the article, so I have reason to doubt the suitability/notability of the term for the dab page. You have enough sources, just be bold and add it to menstrual cycle, and this issue becomes a non-issue. :-) (On the other hand, I'll rather let this issue go than be the dab police and get into revert wars over such a silly thing. But my point remains.) – sgeureka t•c 01:00, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
Cool, I dig where you are coming from, and still, please consider the idea of NOT creating a new page just for "On The Rag" as why be redundant? I link to menstruation, logically. Why not have some humor in this, however, I do not find it silly a subject in general, do you? Thank you muchly for your input, I say :) Marycontrary 03:10, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
"Silly" was intended to refer to revert wars over dab page entries, not "On the rag" as a phrase. – sgeureka t•c 09:23, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

Off the Richter[edit]

Well, "Off the Ricter" and "Off the Ricta" might be supercool slang-spelling, I dunno. But they should refer to "Off the Richter" as in "so good that it defies any scale", the Richter-scale standing as an example of the scale which itself goes very far up to magnitudes of earthquakes that destroy the earth itself.
