Feedback Dashboard task force[edit]

Hi Fyrael,

Since you were a part of the WikiGuides project, I thought I'd give you a heads-up about a new way you can help/mentor newbies on we've recently released a feature called the Feedback Dashboard, a queue that updates in real time with feedback and editing questions from new registered contributors who have attempted to make at least one edit. Steven Walling and I are putting together a task force for experienced Wikipedians who might be interested in monitoring the queue and responding to the feedback: details are here at Wikipedia:Feedback Dashboard. Please sign up if you're interested in helping out! Thanks, Maryana (WMF) (talk) 21:53, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

Atmospheric duct[edit]

I've proposed a merge of Atmospheric duct into Anomalous propagation. Could you give your opinion. Pierre cb (talk) 00:44, 29 November 2011 (UTC)


Hey, I'm curious as to what you are using to repair links to disambiguation pages. Thanks, Ryan Vesey Review me! 16:26, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

I'm glad you asked. I use a tool called Dab_solver found right here. The tool is actually supposed to put a link to itself at the end of the edit summary, but I'm using Internet Explorer at work with specific settings that make the tool not always function perfectly. Also, if you don't know already, there's a whole disambiguation project here on the wiki at Wikipedia:Disambiguation pages with links. Happy editing! -- Fyrefly (talk) 16:35, 12 December 2011 (UTC)
Oh, I've actually used Dab solver as well but I was confused because it didn't link to itself. Ryan Vesey Review me! 16:39, 12 December 2011 (UTC)
Yep, it's just one of the joys of Internet Explorer. -- Fyrefly (talk) 16:40, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

Sourcing at Agnostic atheism[edit]

I saw that you reverted my removal of an extended quote that seemed of limited value to the article, could you please engage on the talk page with a rationale of how it is relevant? Thanks! unmi 02:26, 14 December 2011 (UTC)

Burn Notice[edit]

My source for Season Six is Bruce Campbell. Bruce Campbell plays Sam Axe in Burn Notice.


I see you tagged this guy for unsourced edits. In the time it took you to do that, he reverted, so I tagged him for vandalism. We may need to keep an eye on this one. --Drmargi (talk) 20:19, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

Do you honest spend your time to see what people write? But you will not read a person's explanation for it. I got the Information about Season Six from Bruce Campbell. Bruce Campbell plays Sam Axe in Burn Notice. Thanks for your time. — Preceding unsigned comment added by TruthSeeker123 (talkcontribs) 20:23, 23 December 2011 (UTC)
Doesn't matter what I do. You're repeatedly adding unsourced (and telling us you got it from Bruce Campbell is in no way an acceptable source) content. Please learn the rules before you continue to edit. Drmargi (talk) 20:26, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

I talk to him face to face at Central Michigan University. Thanks for your help. — Preceding unsigned comment added by TruthSeeker123 (talkcontribs) 20:29, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

And we have only your word for that. Unless you can provide a reliable, verifiable secondary source that supports what you say, you cannot add the content. --Drmargi (talk) 20:32, 23 December 2011 (UTC)
If you would please read Wikipedia:Verifiability, you'll see that Drmargi is correct. Wikipedia requires that information come from a published source, so that we can verify it. -- Fyrefly (talk) 20:35, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for pulling you comment off my talk page. I didn't notice he'd done that rather than you. --Drmargi (talk) 20:50, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

Watch this: — Preceding unsigned comment added by TruthSeeker123 (talkcontribs) 20:54, 23 December 2011 (UTC)
This discussion probably should have all happened on the Burn Notice talk page, but since that didn't happen, I propose directing all further comments to TruthSeeker's talk. -- Fyrefly (talk) 20:59, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

Unnecessary correction[edit]

Recently i changed the words on the 'Edema' page so the word read 'Odema', and you have felt it necessary to change it back. However, in your arguement for doing so you pointed out the very reason your correct was pointless, as you said pages viewed by more than one country exclusively should be considerate of the different forms of English. Yet when i wished the page to have the English spelling of the disorder, and having every right to do so as a representative of the page's British viewers, you seem to be so outraged that you changed it back almost instantly. I find this highly injust and hypocritical, and would like an explaination to why you did so? p.s I'am aware that my other changes to the page (using the words 'correct English') may have been seen as offensive, so apologise for their appearance and acknowledge that i understand why they were removed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:11, 31 January 2012 (UTC)

You are misunderstanding quite a bit here. First of all, let me make something clear about the message left on your page. You seem to believe that I angrily wrote up a paragraph-long diatribe in response to your edit. In reality, I simply copied in the template {{subst:uw-lang}}, which put all of that text onto your talk page. I'm neither the author of the policy, nor of the template and I was not at all enraged by your edit. Secondly, choosing to replace "British" with "correct" isn't particularly offensive in my opinion, but it is simply wrong. There are many local variations of English and none of them are correct or incorrect. The reasons that I chose to simply revert your edit are that your edit was not constructive at all and that the alternative was to manually replace the word "correct" and then change the spelling of the entire article to British spelling in order to match your change. This would've been quite a waste of my time. As the policy states, it is a waste of everyone's time to change an entire article from one variation to another when the subject does not apply to a particular location. Hopefully we understand each other and can be done with this. -- Fyrefly (talk) 17:18, 31 January 2012 (UTC)


I am sorry. I was going to continue to make constructive contributory edits to Wikipedia but I have retired my account. (talk) 12:45, 1 April 2012 (UTC)

Community Discussion: Muhammad[edit]

I am unable to edit or vote in this discussion. Why is that? Thanks Thepoodlechef (talk) 23:49, 1 April 2012 (UTC)

I assume you're talking about the discussion here: Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Muhammad images. This discussion is semi-protected, which means that only users with a certain level of experience may participate. You can still read the proceedings though, and see how this kind of activity goes on Wikipedia. -- Fyrefly (talk) 13:58, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

Elektra (comics)[edit]

Would you please expand upon how you feel the article is clear about the character being dead and then continuing her activities anyway? As I was reading through the biography I found no explanation at all. -- Fyrefly (talk) 14:04, 26 April 2012 (UTC)

Sorry, I thought the tag was referencing the differing versions of her death. From the talk page, I believe the answers are in Daredevil #190, but I do not have the issue. I've replaced the tag. Argento Surfer (talk) 14:10, 26 April 2012 (UTC)
Yes, I see how the title I chose for the tag might be a bit confusing, given the other contradiction. At any rate, I found what you referred to on the talk page and tried to add it in. Hopefully, this is now resolved. -- Fyrefly (talk) 14:20, 26 April 2012 (UTC)

Giant squid[edit]

I had changed the date format because someone had tagged it for change. Personally, I prefer the original format, but thought Wiki preferred the latter.Gigemag76 (talk) 13:24, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

Can you read it and leave a comment on my talk page it really good you should read it i give it five stars what would rate it as one, two, three, four, or five


To be perfectly honest, I don't know what review you're talking about, but please don't put your own personal reviews into Wikipedia articles. That's not what this site is for. The very best way for you to help Wikipedia would be to read the links in that big blue box that I posted on your talk page. Here is a great link for you to start with. -- Fyrefly (talk) 15:30, 2 November 2012 (UTC)

I did indeed think better of it[edit]

...and I hit the stop button a second after I hit upload, rewrote the summary and hit upload again, but it was too late. So I agree with you. That said, it was more than plot bloat; he had added what looked like deliberately silly plot details. You're right, as well, about each of us having irate moments. In my defense, though, you oughta see this guy!   : )   --Tenebrae (talk) 11:23, 20 December 2012 (UTC)

Critical heat flux[edit]

I with regards to the disambiguation tag, I suppose that sentence could be rephrased. It is actually referring to the Leidenfrost effect. During normal boiling, the liquid is in contact with the heating element. However when the heat flux is too high, the liquid becomes vapour immediately and as vapour has a lower thermal conductivity than liquids, the boiling suddenly stops and the heating element stops getting cooled by the liquid, resulting in "burnout". Know that the term burnout is not an actual engineering term but rather critical heat flux is. Perhaps you can help to rephrase that paragraph. Venny85 (talk) 03:12, 21 January 2013 (UTC)


I appreciate the input. It appears someone has already reverted the additions - which is fine for now. The reason for the add was that it was reported by National Geographic recently and I found the link which I referenced that summarizes the species in question. At the very least it's worth keeping an eye on if anything develops in the coming months/years. Stylteralmaldo (talk) 12:22, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, I agree that it's at least an interesting find, even if it's not encyclopedia worthy yet. -- Fyrefly (talk) 22:30, 10 April 2013 (UTC)


In this article you removed a section because "none of this is relevant to the article's topic". Surely a better way would have been to add a "may refer to" tag at the top of the article instead of just removing stuff. Jodosma (talk) 22:18, 19 April 2013 (UTC)

I considered making the article a disambiguation page as you seem to be suggesting, but none of the other uses of the word actually have their own wikipedia article, so that option didn't really make sense. -- Fyrael (talk) 22:22, 19 April 2013 (UTC)

The COPS page move[edit]

Chevrolet Big-Block Engines[edit]

I do not think there is anything ambiguous about the usage of the word "centerline" in this context. It need neither linked or disambiguated. If you know what a cylinder is, in most any use, it's not hard to imagine what it's centerline is. If you applied that level of explanation to every engineering term in a page like this you'd end up with half the article linked with many of the links unsatisfactory for explanation, as the page for centerline is in this usage. I think this one is unnecessary and contributes to the ever increasing clutter endless citations are bringing to wiki. Jackhammer111 (talk) 04:01, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

You are misunderstanding the disambiguation needed tag. I put that tag there because there was a link to the disambiguation page centerline, which there shouldn't be. The two ways to resolve the issue are to change the link to the specific centerline-related article that was intended or to remove the link. So, in short, I have absolutely no problem with you removing the link and of course the tag along with it. I would agree that no link was really needed in the first place, but I try not to be overzealous when I'm disambiguating. I'm glad that the tag caught your attention and that you resolved the issue. -- Fyrael (talk) 05:54, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

Albuquerque Plaza ‎[edit]

hello. there's a couple things about your last edit....1) you shouldn't introduce unnecessary redirects into articles, 2) it likely would have taken you less energy to determine the Albuquerque Plaza GSA is the U.S. General Services Administration; and more personally, 3) you should take a glance at wp:DTTR. cheers! --emerson7 06:40, 11 July 2013 (UTC)

I didn't stop to check if you were a regular editor because I assumed that a regular wouldn't remove a dab template without actually disambiguating the link. And no, it would not have taken less energy to go research this plaza than to put the tag there. Please do not try to advise me on how to disambiguate links. Also, is there a reason that you have not edited the link, since you seem to know where it should point? -- Fyrael (talk) 17:00, 11 July 2013 (UTC)

Blizzard Entertainment change[edit]

My good sir, this was not vandalism, what I did last night by adding Diablo III: Reaper of Souls. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dremord1 (talkcontribs) 17:12, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

I never claimed that your edit was vandalism. You added information without giving any kind of source for it, so I removed it. Even the source that you've now given doesn't make the claim that this is the Diablo 3 expansion. They simply mention it's a possibility. -- Fyrael (talk) 20:19, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

Many changes on a "Burg"[edit]

Hello, you did a step-by-step complete revert on my edits at Burg. It was not hard work, but serious work, that I did there. Let me tell you what made me start this.

I first wanted to find out something about the name Lewandowski, as for Robert Lewandowski is a Polish footballer who plays for German Bundesliga club ... In German wiki, there was no information, but English wiki helped. The surname is derived from the Old Polish word lewanda, ...section of the Warsaw right-bank suburb of Białołęka.

Then I came to Burg, Burg is the word for castle in various Germanic languages. various Germanic languages? Which? And really castle? And a castle is "eine Burg"? And the next one, I find okay, like the Lewandowski article:

Bourg is the French rendering of the Germanic root *burgs (cf Danish, Swedish and Icelandic borg; English burg, burgh, and borough; German Burg), related to the Germanic root *bergan "to protect, shelter"; and may refer to:...

Well, there is one wrong link that can be easily removed, but I like the rest. And I just wanted to give some additional information for Burg to an 'English' reader.

And the long list of Burg-places with names ending burg --- In central Europe there are many towns and cities wit German names the end with -burg, including Luxemburg, Salzburg, Freiburg im Breisgau, Regensburg, Augsburg,

Würzburg, Magdeburg, Duisburg, Wolfsburg, Oldenburg, Hamburg. I would - to some extend - say that Burg is their family name, that is why I put them there. (I hope I cah find Jack Brown (cricketer) at Brown, even so Jack B. starts with J). And it were only the very big ones, See the List of cities in Germany by population.

I think quite some Americans know Rothenburg ob der Tauber, which I didn't metion. A good night from Europe, it's reallly late. --Schwab7000 (talk) 21:26, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

I tried very hard to not just do a full revert because I realize that you meant for all your edits to be constructive, but I admit that the end result is pretty similar to how the page looked before your edits.

For the various words in various languages part, perhaps that is something that would be useful on the Burg page, but not the disambiguation page, which is meant to help readers find various articles that could be named 'burg'. Similar reasoning on the list of cities ending in -burg. As far as I know, none of them would simply be referred to as 'burg', so a reader really wouldn't come to that page looking for those cities. In addition, the page already has a link to a list of every article with 'burg' in it.

I'm not sure what you're talking about with Rothenburg ob der Tauber. -- Fyrael (talk) 22:43, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

Hello, how many readers will look at the →Burg article to find small cities and very small cities (towns) that are almost completely unknown, except for their neighborhood area. (Did you know Salzburg or Hamburg before?) It is a disambiguation page, but it is not →Burg (disambiguation), it is just Burg. And as I mentioned above, wiki says, burg is a 'special' English word. (besides the words burgh=borough). But burg has no article.
It is about the introductory part. I thought, it should be more clear, because (GER) Burg is only a castle, but not a palace, which could be "Schloss". This is what you find in dictionaries, printed and online (castle ... Burg, Schloss)

Please have a look ath my new page, User:Schwab7000/Burg and castle

But this is more with the French word «château», the English-German interwikis are clear. But still I think, the dk/sv/no borg should be in the introductory part, so a reader more easily understand why it is at See also
  • Borg (disambiguation)
  • Berg (disambiguation) (why?)
  • Burj (disambiguation)
  • Burger (disambiguation) really? Like Hamburger?
  • Bourg (disambiguation) yes!

You proposed, perhaps that is something that would be useful on the Burg page, but this is impossible now.

cities ending in -burg. ... In addition, the page already has a link to a list of every article with 'burg' in it. Yes, but you don't find Hamburg there, because it is Hamburg, not Ham Burg or Ham-Burg. Well, this is already long now. --Schwab7000 (talk) 16:19, 16 August 2013 (UTC)

Albion (disambiguation)[edit]

Please, do NOT revert but edit the page instead (if possible). know it is easy to "push the button" but reverted edits are counted as beeping deleted edits, thank you.
About my edit on Albion (disambiguation), I've forgot to add the square brackets and make Albion Records a red link because there are 53 articles within the main namespace pointing to it right now. Happy editing! –pjoef (talkcontribs) 18:33, 22 October 2013 (UTC)

What is "beeping deleted edits" supposed to mean? And as far as adding a red link for Albion Records, that sounds perfectly fine to me. -- Fyrael (talk) 21:28, 22 October 2013 (UTC)
I made some 47K edits here on the English Wikipedia, and 940 of them are deleted edits. 99.99% of the deleted edits are pages I've created for WP:MOTD, which will be deleted by a bot after a year or so. In any case, it doesn't matter, have fun and happy editing! –pjoef (talkcontribs) 13:10, 23 October 2013 (UTC)


A person who is a slasher, slashes. I added it to that page as slasher is already on there for Ice Hockey (as "Slashing"), so why delete NBA Slasher, who slashes, and does Slashing, but not ice hockey (who does neither!). — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bullblade (talkcontribs) 17:09, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

I was not aware that basketball had a move called a "slash" and the wording of the entry didn't make that apparent. I've re-added the entry with wording that makes it clearer. -- Fyrael (talk) 17:43, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

Hi Fyrael,

You have removed my biography add on "Tom Swoon" because of copyright issues etc. But please note that I am the manager of Tom Swoon and all content from Biography is 100% legit and I used the website as reference (and my company Knockout Artists Management) owns this website. Can you please help me to put back the biography?

Kind regards,

Kind words[edit]

Hi Fyrael, just wanted to say thanks for taking the time to write and impart some friendly words of wisdom. I deeply appreciate that. It shows me that there are people here that do come with good intentions to write proper information, are open minded, and easy to talk to. Everything you said, I will highly take under consideration moving forward. So truly, thanks again. And if I have any queries, I hope I can come here from time to time and maybe ask you. All in all, take care. NYCWikiKid (talk) 04:56, 16 November 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link fixing one-day contest[edit]

I have decided to put on a mini-contest within the November 2013 monthly disambiguation contest, on Saturday, November 23 (UTC). I will personally give a $20 gift card to the disambiguator who fixes the most links on that server-day (see the project page for details on scoring points). Since we are not geared up to do an automated count for that day, at 00:00, 23 November 2013 (UTC) (which is 7:00 PM on November 22, EST), I'll take a screenshot of the project page leaderboard. I will presume that anyone who is not already listed on the leaderboard has precisely nine edits. At 01:00, 24 November 2013 (UTC) (8:00 PM on November 23, EST), I'll take a screenshot of the leaderboard at that time (the extra hour is to give the board time to update), and I will determine from that who our winner is. I will credit links fixed by turning a WP:DABCONCEPT page into an article, but you'll have to let me know me that you did so. Here's to a fun contest. Note that according to the Daily Disambig, we currently have under 256,000 disambiguation links to be fixed. If everyone in the disambiguation link fixers category were to fix 500 links, we would have them all done - so aim high! Cheers! bd2412 T 02:24, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

Brahma Kumaris[edit]

Hello, Fyrael. I'm assuming your good faith in editing the disambiguation for "BK". FYI, "Brahma Kumaris" is the exact same thing as "Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University". It's not that one is a group inside the other. They are the same thing, and it's the name of a new religious movement, you can check it out here: Brahma Kumaris. The percentage of women over man is not so high as to pick this very point to describe the group in a disambiguation. The most notable aspect by which the NRM is known is that it is a NRM. The other description present on their article is "spiritual organization", and frankly I don't bother if you prefer that one, but anything else is too specific for a disambiguation. Thank you. GreyWinterOwl (talk) 18:12, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

The article read like one was a group within the other, which is why I stated it that way on the DAB page. I'm fine with the wording as you have it then, but obviously we'll need to remove the second link, per MOS:DAB. -- Fyrael (talk) 22:05, 27 November 2013 (UTC)
No problem, now it's fine, thanks. GreyWinterOwl (talk) 01:28, 28 November 2013 (UTC)

Ask Me Anything[edit]

About a year ago, you reverted the disambiguation at said title back to a redirect on grounds of the second entry lacking a blue link. What, if anything, prevents rewriting that entry to be specifically about Reddit and inserting a link to Reddit#Subreddits?

I know there are other reasons it is undesirable to have a disambiguation page. Could the issue be clarified using hatnotes instead? --SoledadKabocha (talk) 05:15, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

I would completely support a DAB entry pointing to the Subreddits section you linked for Ask Me Anything. I also think that there isn't really a primary topic here, so making the redirect back into a disambiguation seems like the right thing to do. Would you like to go ahead and make those changes? I could do it, but it would have to be later today. -- Fyrael (talk) 16:57, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
I will take care of it ASAP. --SoledadKabocha (talk) 17:03, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

Just to clarify... ^_^;

As explained in my edit comment, that bit is redundant: see a bit further, with "Esper (mythology)". It really is the exact same thing. I see no reason to single the Akira Espers out, really. I don't even remember them being called that exact term in the story (not in Japanese anyway). Erigu (talk) 05:34, 19 June 2014 (UTC)

Ok, I see what you're referring to now. I couldn't figure out which other entry would have covered it, but I didn't bother checking the one labelled "Mythology" because I wouldn't expect such an article to be about fiction. I think I'll start a discussion on there about the naming, since it seems so inaccurate. And I'll remove the Akira redirect again. -- Fyrael (talk) 07:01, 19 June 2014 (UTC)
I agree with you, regarding the "mythology" term. I'm also somewhat mystified by the first paragraph of the article, which doesn't seem to relate to anything else. Erigu (talk) 07:15, 19 June 2014 (UTC)
Yes, my thoughts exactly. -- Fyrael (talk) 16:32, 19 June 2014 (UTC)

I restored the text you removed from Wiener, which for some time had stated that it is the German word for Viennese, since that statement seems to be correct, and since you provided no explanation in an edit summary. If you feel the change improves the article, please raise the issue on the article talk page and see if there is a consensus. Thank you for your work on the encyclopedia. Regards, Edison (talk) 18:55, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

Oops. Sorry for undoing the rest of your edit. I restored the article to your last version except for leaving in the part about it being German for "Viennese."I see that most of your recent edits get an automated edit summary, but in the ones you do manually, you often do not add an explanatory edit summary. Please add more edit summaries, so that other editors know what your intent is. Edison (talk) 19:02, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
What was the point of this edi? I had already restored your "uncontroversial changes." Please look before you edit. Maybe it was just an edit conflict. Edison (talk) 19:11, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, we made basically the same change at nearly the exact same time. Oddly, it didn't inform me of a conflict. -- Fyrael (talk) 20:36, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

Rockstar North[edit]

Hi. I noticed this edit. I notice you referred to the essay WP:BRD in your edit summary and I thought I would point you towards another essay, WP:DRNC which points out how very poor form it is to revert solely because of your belief that there is "no consensus". I notice you have not given a reason at article talk for your revert. WP:OVERLINK is definitely also worth a read if you are going to defend your revert. See you in talk! --John (talk) 18:17, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

The essay you linked does not really apply at all. The person who initially reverted your edit gave a reason for doing so and is engaging you on the talk page. I did not revert "because there is no consensus". I reverted in order to stop you from circumventing standard procedure. If you read BRD, then you would know that you never should have put your edit back until the discussion had played out. I also have no intention of joining the discussion, as both versions seem fine to me. -- Fyrael (talk) 19:13, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
Of course I have read BRD! If both versions seem fine to you, why are you reverting? That does seem, pardon me, somewhat stupid. --John (talk) 19:29, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
Then you aren't understanding what BRD says. It's Bold-Revert-Discuss, not BRRD or BRRRRRD, which is what ends up happening when people ignore the procedure and instead just insist that their version is right. -- Fyrael (talk) 21:05, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
Hmmm. WP:BRD is an essay. WP:NOTBURO is a policy. I believe my version is right for the reasons I have very clearly explained at article talk. You on the other hand seem to be reverting merely to make some sort of WP:POINT, do I understand correctly? --John (talk) 21:21, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
No, you do not understand correctly. -- Fyrael (talk) 23:29, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
Good, that's a relief, and well done for proving that you do know what the D stands for, I was beginning to wonder. --John (talk) 06:21, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
And thanks for demonstrating that you still have not at all grasped the point here despite it being spelled out for you. -- Fyrael (talk) 10:54, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Partial title matches[edit]

The dab page is replete with what you refer to as "partial title matches." As is common on most dab pages. Can you point me to the guideline mandating your deletion? Tx. --Epeefleche (talk) 20:28, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

The guideline that I'm trying to follow is at Wikipedia:Disambiguation#Partial_title_matches. It looked very much to me like the two entries I deleted would not commonly be referred to simply as "weiner". It's possible that the same is true of other entries on the dab page and if you want to remove them on the same grounds, then feel free to do so. Based on the reactions of other editors, it seems like I take a stricter interpretation of what should remain on dab pages than others do, so I try to only act when it's a clear case. I'd have to say that a title like "Wiener Takes All: A Dogumentary" is a pretty clear case. -- Fyrael (talk) 11:25, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
That's interesting. I see what you are referring to as to the words. Practice doesn't IMHO follow that language at all. Across most dab pages I've looked at -- and I've looked at many. For example, it is completely common for all people by that surname to be included on a dab page, if there is no separate dab page. I would guess that a substantial chunk - perhaps most - of the entries I've seen on dab pages would be deleted if we were to engage in strict application of that section.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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.

Thanks for reverting the vandalism. What a pain. Please keep up the surveillance and good work. PraeceptorIP (talk) 22:10, 28 March 2016 (UTC)

Bob's Burgers :)[edit]

As long as they keep airing episodes with plotlines revolving around the burger of the day, its not resolved. But hey thanks anyway! :D --RThompson82 (talk) 03:12, 7 April 2016 (UTC)

After I saw how many comments you had made under that section, I figured you would think I was talking about burger of the day. That's my mistake for assuming you had only responded to one topic. I was actually referring to the way late comment about the Belchers living in New Jersey, which had already gone through official dispute resolution. -- Fyrael (talk) 03:48, 7 April 2016 (UTC)

Your reversal of DAB entry on Lucifer (disambiguation)[edit]

Hi Fyrael.

May I ask why you reverted the non article entry on Lucifer (disambiguation) ? What is wrong with a no article entry, thereby showing the reader that there is not yet such an article and saving the reader time looking for one ? Aoziwe (talk) 10:24, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for reaching out, Aoziwe. In short, disambiguation pages are just meant to direct a user to other existing Wiki articles. If a topic is not mentioned anywhere else on the Wiki, we would consider it not notable enough to be mentioned on a disambiguation page. You can find out more about what types of entries we do and do not want to include at the Manual of Style, and more specifically MOS:DABRED (even though you didn't include an actual red link, having no link at all is pretty much equivalent). I hope that clears things up a little bit. -- Fyrael (talk) 16:13, 8 July 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the prompt response. I would thought that a DABRED is not the same as a unlinked dab entry. Almost every article in wikipedia mentions subjects that have no wikipedia article, so why not a DAB page. Such an entry tells the searcher that what they are looking for is not hidden under another title but none the less they are looking for their subject under a recognised title. (FYI, it was not my unlinked dab edit you undid.) Aoziwe (talk) 10:32, 9 July 2016 (UTC)
I appreciate the clarification there. I probably shouldn't have made assumptions. And to clarify something in return, I'm not trying to defend my edit here. The manual of style makes it very clear that each entry needs to direct the reader to a Wikipedia article. I'm just trying to explain why I believe the policy is that way. And it really comes down to a couple of lines right at the top of that style page: 1) "Disambiguation pages are not articles; they are aids in searching." and 2) "This style guideline is intended to make the search more efficient... by avoiding distracting information." If we allowed Mercury (disambiguation) to include every youtube personality, local band, and minor fictional character then the list would grow from already too long to just about unusable. So, a line has to be drawn somewhere and it was decided that a topic had to at least be mentioned somewhere in an existing article (and again, DAB pages are not articles). -- Fyrael (talk) 22:18, 9 July 2016 (UTC)
Thanks. Fair point. Aoziwe (talk) 11:54, 10 July 2016 (UTC)
