Template editor[edit]

I've ignored the guidelines for granting 'templateeditor' and given it to you given the special circumstances involved. Please don't make any sweeping changes to high-profile templates. Please read Wikipedia:Template editor, and, in particular, the section on abuse. Good luck, and thanks for fixing HTML issues! Reaper Eternal (talk) 12:59, 16 November 2013 (UTC)

Talk page header[edit]

Please don't add the talk page header to talk pages. It's just a very wasteful use of space. I would like to see it deleted altogether, but there are cases where there are archives that it lists. If a talk page doesn't have any archives, it has no value whatsoever. Greg Bard (talk) 20:08, 22 November 2013 (UTC)

Hi Greg, I've never had a Wikipedia talk with someone before and do not know whether to respond here or on your own talk page.
  • Question: I believe that talk pages may encourage discussion, and that is a good thing. Of course, I don't actually know and will defer to other's better judgment.
    • I've looked at the archives, and some support wider use but there is no consensus. See 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9
    • The current Wikipedia:Talk page guidelines state There is no need to add discussion warning templates to every talk page, or even to every talk page that contains a discussion which doesn't help determine when or why they should be used. See 7
  • As for taking up space, I'm wondering if the entire header could be made invisible on a per-user basis (i.e., via CSS customizations) as it is done for other notices.
    • Perhaps Wikipedia should have a novice/expert toggle that could be applicable to numerous notices?
  • As for consistency, I've noticed some projects use it religiously, while other are haphazard and some never at all.

Go for it, I just closed this discussion. When you are done, move it to the 'ready for deletion' section in WP:TFD/H. Thanks! Plastikspork ―Œ(talk) 21:25, 23 November 2013 (UTC)

Emergic cognition[edit]

I deleted the Emergic cognition page for you. Usually for this purpose, we use the speedy deletion templates - next time you can just tag the article with {{db-g7}} if you're the only editor of the page. Best — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 04:24, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for November 5[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Reinforcement learning, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Exploitation (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.
