Disambiguation link notification for February 6[edit]

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

Your edits on Alexander the Great[edit]

Hello. Your edits on the article have been reverted since a) they replaced a correct link with a link to a disambiguation page, and b) the article was historically correct before you edited it, not "with a Greek bias" as you claimed (Alexander the Great and the ancient kingdom of Macedonia has very little, if anything at all, to do with later entities named Macedonia). - Tom | Thomas.W talk 17:32, 28 October 2016 (UTC)

Hi. On "Macedon" vs "Macedonia". This has nothing to do with "Greek bias" or whatever. "Macedonia" is the Latinized form of Greek Μακεδονία, in use since Roman times; "Macedon" is a somewhat archaic, but relatively modern English form, deriving from the French form "Macedoine".
