Smallpipes, SIA vs DABCONCEPT[edit]

Sorry for not catching that the Smallpipes page had been turned into an SIA. I've run into this sort of resolution once before, but I'm still unsure how to apply WP:DABCONCEPT or when something can be appropriately turned into an SIA. For instance, sometimes you get geographical name dab pages that list a whole bunch of places that have the same name. I suspect this is not a suitable SIA, but how is that different from two different, but related, musical instruments? This seems to be a big hole in my understanding, this is not just some esoteric detail that I've missed. Is there anything I can read to learn more, or is it just a matter of watching long enough to grok it?  —jmcgnh(talk) (contribs) 19:20, 14 August 2016 (UTC)

WP:DABCONCEPT basically asks if you can discuss all the topics under the umbrella of a single broader idea. If you clearly can not (see, e.g., Mercury, Battery, Seal), then the solution is disambiguation. If the topics are closely enough related that you can, then the solution is either a broad concept article or an SIA. bd2412 T 19:36, 14 August 2016 (UTC)
Thanks, helps a little.  —jmcgnh(talk) (contribs) 19:39, 14 August 2016 (UTC)

Hillary Rodham Clinton[edit]

I see you have made multiple edits changing Hillary Rodham Clinton to Hillary Clinton. These articles were on my watchlist:

I have reverted your edits to the first two articles as they mention Hillary Rodham Clinton in the '90s context and "Hillary Rodham Clinton". With the last one we could go either way. I will refrain from making more reverts, but I will ask you to reconsider how your edits fit into the context of each article. Also WP:NOTBROKEN. Or if there is a centralized discussion about this topic somewhere and you think I made a mistake, please let me know. Politrukki (talk) 12:11, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

  • I am not aware of any "context" wherein we refer to historical figures by any variation of their common name based on the decade in which they are being discussed, outside of their own biography. Perhaps we do so with popes and kings if they adopt a completely different names, but this is not that situation. In this case, in particular, the subject has always been referred to in at least some sources as "Hillary Clinton". bd2412 T 12:29, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

Save NPP some time[edit]

I think it would be reasonable for you request (or give to yourself) autopatrolled. After having created thousands of articles you've met the requirement. Chris Troutman (talk) 08:15, 17 August 2016 (UTC)

BD2412 is an admin.. That should be part of the userrights. unlsess the software doesn't automatically do it. Pyrusca (talk) 15:01, 17 August 2016 (UTC)

Second opinion requested[edit]

Please review if you have a chance. I don't want to get into an edit war unnecessarily, but it seems to me that the other user misses the point entirely. --R'n'B (call me Russ) 13:06, 17 August 2016 (UTC)

Fashion (film)[edit]

Thank you for using AWB to fix the links to Fashion (film), which I have redirected to Fashion (disambiguation) per WP:INCDAB, to point to Fashion (2008 film) instead. The first edit was Special:Diff/734796603 to 10th IIFA Awards and the last one was Special:Diff/734798275 to Wendell Rodricks. GeoffreyT2000 (talk) 18:58, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

HI, I recently moved Achene to Achene (fruit). I did that because I was writing a draft that became Achene, Belgium. On second thought, I should have kept the accent mark above the E at "Achêne". So I was wondering if you can move Achene (fruit) back to Achene. Thank you. Pyrusca (talk) 21:00, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

"We work diligently with volunteers to expand our efforts at building an open source, open access, legal research ecosystem" - that sounds an awful lot like a wiki. bd2412 T 19:02, 25 August 2016 (UTC)
