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.

Correct, solved it. Fnorp (talk) 11:51, 16 July 2015 (UTC)

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.

Cheers.

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

Holland[edit]

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)

Frank A. Ludewig[edit]

Hi Fnorp. As you can see, I've moved your draft into article space and added a few tweaks to it. Thank you so much for creating this. Note that you are an autoconfirmed user on English Wikipedia which means you can create articles directly without having to go through the Articles for Creation process which can be a bit "hit and miss", as you've discovered. If I can be of any further help, please let me know. Best wishes, Voceditenore (talk) 07:55, 20 October 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for not only saving the article but for improving it as well! I had no idea I could skip this procedure, but with this experience in mind next time I will. Fnorp (talk) 12:39, 20 October 2015 (UTC)
You're welcome! For your next article, you can either create it in user space, as you did with User:Fnorp/Frank A. Ludewig and when it's complete move it directly into article space by using the "Move" tab. Or, if you were the only author of the draft you can create a red link for the article title, click on it, then copy/paste the contents of your draft there and click "Save". Best, Voceditenore (talk) 13:25, 20 October 2015 (UTC)
Thanks, I used to do it like that on the Dutch Wikipedia but with all the rules and guidelines here I thought it wouldn't be that simple. Good to know I was wrong. Still puzzles me why that other person chose to make it difficult. Fnorp (talk) 10:18, 21 October 2015 (UTC)

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.
