Disambiguation link notification for January 1[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Japanese festivals, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Sakai River. 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.

MOS:NOTSEEALSO[edit]

That doesn't really what you want it to say, at least not categorically: it is a "general rule" but worse, "Thoughts and prayers" is in the article but it's piped, and I actually don't agree with that piping, which pretty much renders it invisible. Besides, there's MOS:LWQ, which advises us not to use wiklinks in quotations in the first place. Drmies (talk) 04:04, 15 February 2018 (UTC)

I don't think the "Thoughts and prayers" article seem like a notable enough article to be included in the "See also" of the Douglas High School shooting in the first place. It's a little trivial. I suggest taking it up on the article's talk page. Fortunatestars (talk) 04:52, 15 February 2018 (UTC)
That was not my point but thanks for the advice. Drmies (talk) 15:59, 15 February 2018 (UTC)

March 2018[edit]

Information icon Hello. Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia.

When editing an article on Wikipedia, you will see a small field labeled "Edit summary" shown under the main edit box. It looks like this:

Edit summary (Briefly describe your changes)

 

I noticed your recent edit to Military history of Asian Americans does not have an edit summary. Please be sure to provide a summary of every edit you make, even if you write only the briefest of summaries. The summaries are very helpful to people browsing an article's history.

Edit summary content is visible in:

Please use the edit summary to explain your reasoning for the edit, or a summary of what the edit changes. You can give yourself a reminder to add an edit summary by setting Preferences → Editing → check Prompt me when entering a blank edit summary. I see in the edit without an edit summary a link to Anti-Japanese sentiment in the United States#World War II was removed. Why?--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 01:58, 15 March 2018 (UTC)

Here is the diff for the edit in question.--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 01:59, 15 March 2018 (UTC)
I removed the link because it had nothing to do with Japanese American service in World War II. If there is, it should be mentioned in the text rather than a see also. Fortunatestars (talk) 04:49, 15 March 2018 (UTC)
