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.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 11:34, 5 November 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Theonym[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 Theonym, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G4 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to be a repost of material that was previously deleted following a deletion debate, such as at articles for deletion. Under the specified criteria, where a page has substantially identical content to that of a page deleted after debate, and any changes in the content do not address the reasons for which the material was previously deleted, it may be deleted at any time.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, 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 from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.
