Welcome![edit]

Hello, Dfgg, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions, especially what you did for Hillsboro Central / Southeast 3rd Avenue Transit Center. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are some pages that you might find helpful:

Agreed! Thank you for helping update the Trimet related articles. It is really a pain when they make a big change in fares like they did.
I undid your edits to Springwater Corridor because you added a see also for an item which was already linked. See WP:SEEALSO for details. Thanks again! —EncMstr (talk) 16:19, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

Issues with linking[edit]

Although you are welcome to contribute to Wikipedia, many of your recent edits have not been constructive, and have been reverted (or eventually will be), such as here and here. Most of these have involved your adding links to existing text, but most of those additions run counter to Wikipedia's guidelines, and some have introduced errors. The page WP:OVERLINK explains why common words (such as "bus") and names not closely related to the topic of an article should not be linked. Also, some of the words or names you linked (added double-brackets around) do not link to the correct page. For example, you linked Boring, but that goes to the article Boredom, not to Boring, Oregon, which should have been linked as Boring (a piped link), and you linked "Lake" in "29-Lake/Webster", but the Lake article has nothing to do with TriMet bus route 29 or with Lake Road. Before you add more links, please spend a little time reading Wikipedia's guidelines on linking. Please check all links you add to make sure they are correct before moving on; another example is your linking of Hollywood in the article Hollywood / Northeast 42nd Avenue Transit Center, which is a link to Hollywood, California, not the Hollywood being referred to in that article (and the latter is already linked in the first paragraph of the article, so should not be linked again in the Line 66 mention anyway). I also encourage you to use the "Preview" button to check any edits before you save them (even the most experienced editors do that), as that would prevent problems such as an accidental misspelling causing a link to come out red (non-functioning), as happened when you made this edit (which was later reverted for a different reason, given in the edit summary).

Lastly, a large number of the links you've added go to disambiguation pages (called "dab" pages for short). These have been reverted, and usually the person reverting your edit indicated the reason in their edit summary, but I don't know whether you've seen any of those, since you are new to editing and may not know about them. They are found in the page history for each article, and the summaries also display in other places. I noticed you haven't filled in the edit summary field for any of your edits, but it would be very helpful to other editors if you would do that. It takes awhile to learn the ropes of Wikipedia editing, and I hope you'll stick with it, but do please check out the links I've given here to WP pages that are designed to help new editors understand things better, such as "disambiguation" pages (I had never even heard that term before I began editing Wikipedia!).

Beaverton Transit Center[edit]

Please avoid overlinking per WP:OVERLINK. "Bus" is probably a workd that does not need linking. Also, it is not necessary to capitalize it mid-sentence unless it is a proper noun. Bus and bus both work. Cheers Jim1138 (talk) 01:22, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

Warning - January 2013[edit]

You were given a very clear and polite explanation above about linking, and in particular about overlinking and about linking to disambiguation pages, but I see that you are continuing to add such inappropriate links. Many of these edits have already been reverted by other editors, but I must now warn you that if you continue with this behaviour it might be considered to be disruptive editing, and in the extreme it could get you blocked from editing. Please take the time to read the links in the advice which you were given, and take notice so that you can make a constructive contribution to the encyclopedia. - David Biddulph (talk) 03:07, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for January 22[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that you've added some links pointing to disambiguation pages. 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.

Canby Area Transit (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver)
added a link pointing to Woodburn
North Prescott Street (MAX station) (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver)
added a link pointing to Swan Island

Nomination of TriMet Bus Line 55 for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article TriMet Bus Line 55 is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/TriMet Bus Line 55 until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion template from the top of the article. Baldy Bill (sharpen the razor|see my reflection) 23:46, 7 February 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Red Sea Market[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Red Sea Market requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organization or company, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
