Temp links[edit]


The Seasons (poem)[edit]

In this edit you inserted a sentence saying that the poem's meter is iambic hexameter "as often used for Latin and Ancient Greek poetry" (even though the meter of classical epics was dactylic hexameter). On the other hand, the poem is given as an example in our article on dactylic hexameter. Iambic or dactylic? I know nothing about Lithuanian poetry, but there seems to be a conflict here. Deor (talk) 15:20, 3 July 2017 (UTC)

Controversial moves[edit]

Hi, Anthony. Could you please help revert my category moves? Just the category ones (from "Category:Czech electronic music groups" to "Category talk:Russian techno"). These moves I made were deemed controversial and need to be undone. - TheMagnificentist 14:27, 4 July 2017 (UTC)

Mass disruptions[edit]

Have you ever noticed that by your unthoughtful moves of "pro-democracy camp" and "pro-Beijing camp" you delinked and disrupted hundreds of articles that link to the Hong Kong's pro-democracy camp and pro-Beijing camp? Additionally, your choices for "pro-xxxx camp in Hong Kong" instead of "pro-xxx camp (Hong Kong)" are very questionable, as it is not the common practice for naming an article here on wikipedia. Lmmnhn (talk) 01:53, 5 July 2017 (UTC)

The links were fixed because I did it. Before my edits all the articles linked to "pro-democracy camp" were linked to the disambiguation page. No offence but I do not oppose to the intention of whoever wanted to make it more specific or clearer but to delink hundred of articles by moving a page is just a unthoughtful move. Lmmnhn (talk) 08:58, 5 July 2017 (UTC)

Toby fox (artist) listed at Redirects for discussion[edit]


An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect Toby fox (artist). Since you had some involvement with the Toby fox (artist) redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you have not already done so. UnitedStatesian (talk) 14:08, 7 July 2017 (UTC)

Common Sense (pamphlet)[edit]

I'll try and relay that sentiment to the IP (again). But I don't intend to be middle man indefinitely. Four years and 2 months is quite a while? Martinevans123 (talk) 20:03, 7 July 2017 (UTC)
I didn't plan to do anything there. I just wondered if you could unprotect it as a test, to see if vandalism (or anything else bad) started up again. (talk) 20:56, 7 July 2017 (UTC)

It is a good idea to check the talk page history for earlier moves[edit]

Talk:Facade#Requested move before making a WP:RM/TR -- PBS (talk) 13:57, 11 July 2017 (UTC)

Talk:Most Girls[edit]

Can you please move the deleted history of Talk:Most Girls to Talk:Most Girls (Pink song)? The page should have been moved, not deleted, to make way for a move from Talk:Most Girls (disambiguation). GeoffreyT2000 (talk) 01:28, 12 July 2017 (UTC)

Merge request[edit]

I've heard you are the merge expert. Wikimedia has received a couple of requests through OTRS (ticket:2017062110025561) regarding Cision and Cision Inc.. I promise to look into seeing if I could move this along. Is this something you can help with?--S Philbrick(Talk) 16:38, 17 July 2017 (UTC)

Sony TEN histmerge junk[edit]

Can you please revert histmerge junk on Sony TEN? You forgot to do this earlier. GeoffreyT2000 (talk, contribs) 04:56, 19 July 2017 (UTC)

A page you started (Operation Bayonet) has been reviewed![edit]
