Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. In your recent article edits, you've added some links pointing to disambiguation pages. 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.

Alanmaher, you are invited![edit]

Carnegie Heritage Centre and geog context[edit]

Until such time as some other similarly-named establishment has a Wikipedia article, or is redlinked in one, my understanding of the system is that there does not need to be a disambiguation in this article title. Plenty of articles on organisations or structures give no indication as to their geographical location, and as long as this is clear in the opening sentence it is not a problem. I've just stub-sorted Army Air Forces Bombardier Schools, which until I amended it didn't mention "United States" in the opening sentence. By your logic its title should probably have been United States Army Air Forces Bombardier Schools. (I very often find myself having to add "United States" to opening sentences, as there seems to be a tendency among some editors to think of WP as an American encyclopedia!).

Cannons (house)[edit]

Are you projecting recent times onto the 18th century? I guess for James Brydges it is a matter of historical record but I'd have thought if there was a battle (part of a continuing war) on near where he was he is likely to have taken his carriage and a party of friends with a picnic to eat and watch.

I think your edit is quite mistaken, you should have checked his record first. Eddaido (talk) 23:29, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

Note: After discussion of this (less than helpful?) contribution, I reverted my edit (which was a deletion) and inserted an icon to indicate the need for a citation to support the "factual" statement in question.

Disambiguation link notification for December 6[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Barrow-in-Furness Main Public Library, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Carnegie Foundation (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.

Note. I still need to check "The Times" (the source in question), as Carnegie set up various charitable foundations. -Alan (talk) 13:21, 18 February 2013 (UTC)

Notification of proposal to ban Spanish articles from Did You Know?[edit]

Dear WikiProject Spain member,

There is currently a proposal to ban articles concerning a large area of southern Andalusia from appearing on the Main Page of Wikipedia in the Did you know? section. This would affect a significant number of articles within the scope of WikiProject Spain. If you have a view on this proposal, please see Wikipedia talk:Did you know/Gibraltar-related DYKs‎#Proposal for one-year moratorium on Gibraltarpedia DYKs. In addition, you may have a view on an alternative proposal to lift restrictions on Gibraltar-related articles on DYK - please see Wikipedia talk:Did you know/Gibraltar-related DYKs#Proposal for lifting the restrictions on Gibraltar-related DYKs.
