Proper disambiguation[edit]


I am here about your contribution #676730401 in Bower (software) article. I am afraid it was rather sloppy and I had no choice but to undo it. For how we do disambiguation in Wikipedia, you can study Wikipedia:Disambiguation §§ Is there a primary topic?​ and Disambiguation page or hatnotes? but in summary, articles whose titles have disambiguating suffixes like "(software)" do not require any disambiguation.

Best regards,

Sorry, Lisa, I realize my entry was unusual. I use the English Wikipedia to learn English, and had not known the word bower. My fried Peterson had translated Die Gartenlaube in his book with bower, not as you do with Garden arbor. Looking for bower I had wound up with this piece of software, and felt that a the entry "Bower (software)" looked like an ad for the software, and it might have needed a disambiguation or some sort of back link right from the start. In fact there is a disambiguation for bower! Why not let the reader of "software" know that? Later I went to Pergola, and had found what I had looked for, but with no mention of »bower« there. Perhaps the word bower ought to b added to the pergola entry? Thank you and nice greetings from Germany! – Fritz Jörn (talk) 11:14, 19 August 2015 (UTC)
