Sorry, I thought the revised link would be more helpful - will not do again. Regards Denisarona (talk) 15:26, 29 March 2016 (UTC)

No worries! The interlanguage link template has the advantage that it becomes a link to the English article if/when someone creates it, whilst still providing the link to the article in the other language in the mean time. --Deskford (talk) 15:45, 29 March 2016 (UTC)

Sean Shibe[edit]

Is there a reason you removed the prod from Sean Shibe? Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 23:54, 18 June 2016 (UTC)

I was unsure whether he would meet notability criteria. Most of WP:BAND, which you cited, is not relevant for a classical performer and I'm not sure if we have more suitable criteria defined anywhere. If we have, I can't find them. Sean Shibe is a young musician at the start of his career, but has established a reputation and is well known in the UK, particularly Scotland. The AfD process gives others more chance to evaluate the sources to assess his notability. My feeling is that PROD should only be used for clear cases of non-notability, not for a borderline case like this. --Deskford (talk) 22:26, 19 June 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 21[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Ensemble Musikfabrik, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page David Lang (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.

Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge[edit]

Hi, at Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge we're striving to bring about 10,000 article improvements and creations for the UK and Ireland and inspire others to create more content. In order to achieve this we need diversity of content, in all parts of the UK and Ireland on all topics. Eventually a regional contest will be held for all parts of the British Isles, like they were for Wales and the Wedt Country. We currently have just over 1900 articles and need contributors! If you think you'd be interested in collaborating on this and helping reach the target quicker, please sign up and begin listing your entries there as soon as possible! Thanks.♦ --MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:40, 28 September 2016 (UTC)
