A lot of them do belong there, yes. But a lot of them also belong in the subcategories of Category:Classical composers by nationality, and they're not there just yet. This is an intermediate step...when I have time I hope to go through and create/fill a bunch of those by-nationality categories, and in the process move these over as well. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 03:03, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

Thanks – good work! Sorry if I over-reacted! --Deskford (talk) 07:42, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
Not in the least - the more the merrier. :-) It's a pretty huge task - please do move over more as you see fit/come across 'em. I don't know when I'm going to have the wherewithal to tackle the job properly.
Keep up the good work, and happy editing! --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 09:10, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

Byambasuren Sharav → Byambasürengiin Sharav[edit]

Hi, I've requested that Byambasuren Sharav be moved back to Byambasürengiin Sharav. Maybe you didn't notice WP:MON? It explains how to correctly transcribe Mongolian names. Unfortunately, no modern Mongolian composer has had enough international success to have a "commonly known name" in English, so we should stick to the Mongolian conventions. Thanks for your help! --Latebird (talk) 14:33, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the message. I've explained at Talk:Byambasuren Sharav why I think the article should remain at Byambasuren Sharav. Best wishes. --Deskford (talk) 20:29, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

Who are you?[edit]

Uhhh, who are you and why did you revert a talk page message that I left on someone else's page? Please don't do that. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 02:25, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

Sorry, that was unintentional. Not sure how that happened; now reverted! --Deskford (talk) 02:37, 6 April 2015 (UTC)
Oh, I've done that. I accidentally reverted a bot yesterday when I was trying to revert vandalism. I still don't understand how that happened, because I was sure I hit the right button. Sorry I was testy, but it was kind of a surprise. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 02:50, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

articles in need
Thank you for offering "the occasional contribution where necessary", for quality articles on rural settlements in Scotland such as Cortes, Aberdeenshire, for diligence in the spelling of names (composer Ján Zimmer), calling for citations, updating, for example List of classical pianists (recorded) - you are an awesome Wikipedian!
