Disambiguation link notification for July 16[edit]

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

The Netherlands vs Holland[edit]

Hello. Thank you for the correction and pointing out the difference. It is like the difference between the UK and Great Britain. I wrote the line you edited and fully admit that I wasn't aware of the mistake, and have never had the error pointed out during years of use verbally and in writing.

Nice to hear, thank you! Fnorp (talk) 09:52, 22 September 2015 (UTC)


Hi! I notice that some (or perhaps all?) of what you do here is to change the name of the country that in English we normally (well, always, really) call "Holland" to "The Netherlands". Do you have a sound editor consensus for these changes, or is this just a personal Giraffedata-type crusade? Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 19:49, 5 October 2015 (UTC)

No that's not all I do, but yes, changing Holland (when used incorrectly, like it usually is) into the Netherlands is an important part of what I do here. Fnorp (talk) 08:41, 6 October 2015 (UTC)
So do you or do you not have a sound editor consensus for those changes? If so, could you point me to it? Thank you, Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 08:48, 6 October 2015 (UTC)
Are you kidding me? Do I need a "sound editor consensus" for correcting errors? Fnorp (talk) 08:49, 6 October 2015 (UTC)
Of course not. But, I suggest, you do need to establish that it's an error before you go around correcting it. Have you done that? Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 17:46, 6 October 2015 (UTC)
Yes. Fnorp (talk) 06:16, 7 October 2015 (UTC)
