"Flamsteed designation"[edit]

Hello, I noticed you added the phrase "the Flamsteed designation of" to a number of star articles in a way that is problematic because it implies that the focus of the article is on the names of the star systems in question, rather than the systems themselves. Do you think you could tweak your edits in a similar way to how I did here at 55 Cancri? — Ƶ§œš¹ [lɛts b̥iː pʰəˈlaɪˀt] 20:50, 6 December 2015 (UTC)

If you are trying to imply in your edits that the designation is not a name then it is too subtle. But that seems wrong to me anyway. — Ƶ§œš¹ [lɛts b̥iː pʰəˈlaɪˀt] 15:02, 7 December 2015 (UTC)
Seems like a good solution. Would you like to alter the other star articles or would you rather I do it? — Ƶ§œš¹ [lɛts b̥iː pʰəˈlaɪˀt] 05:04, 8 December 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 29[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Alpha Crucis, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Americanism. 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.

Xi Andromedae[edit]

Hello Cuddlyopedia. You claimed that according to http://www.pas.rochester.edu/~emamajek/WGSN/WGSN_bulletin1.pdf for Xi Andromedae resp. HR 390 the name Adhil was now officially approved. However, HR 390 and Adhil are not mentioned in the bulletin at all. Please find another source or remove your claim. Thank you, --Gereon K. (talk) 12:11, 11 September 2016 (UTC)

IAU catalog[edit]

The URL you're using for the IAU catalog for star names (http://www.pas.rochester.edu/~emamajek/WGSN/IAU-CSN.txt) is problematic. That's a file in the personal directory of the current chair of the IAU Star Names committee - the tilde is an immediate red flag saying private copy. Certainly when the committee chair changes, that file will no longer be available at that location, and the form of the URL will attract attention suggesting it isn't WP:RS. I suspect a better URL to use would be the parent page (https://www.iau.org/science/scientific_bodies/working_groups/280/) even if it means an additional click by users to get the actual data. That URL is less certain to change, and doesn't look like a file stashed in some student's directory. Regards, Tarl N. (discuss) 13:20, 18 September 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for January 12[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Pi3 Orionis, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Earth-like planet (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)

8 Draconis[edit]

Just a suggestion, but you could probably create this article directly rather than through the draft process. Draft articles may take weeks or months to get approved (or rejected). This is an uncontroversial article about a star that is already in lists of probably-notable objects. I would move it myself, but I'm not formally part of the AfC team so it would be slightly unconventional. Articles created directly will still be reviewed, but this will almost certainly take place within 24 hours for any astronomical subject. If you aren't confident creating an entire visible article from scratch, you can always work in your sandbox. Just try to avoid putting the article into real categories: put a colon before the word category. You should really do this in drafts also to avoid weird stuff cluttering up the category lists.

Look at that! You're in already :) Lithopsian (talk) 21:43, 17 January 2018 (UTC)
