Disambiguation link notification for December 2[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Vanessa Baden, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Georgia. 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.

Redirects[edit]

May I ask why you keep ignoring WP:NOTBROKEN and MOS:NOPIPE (the latter of which is a guideline and part of the Manual of Style) in the "Pilot (Body of Proof)" article? - JuneGloom07 Talk 00:55, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

I see that you continue to ignore WP:NOTBROKEN, also WP:SPECIFICLINK; therefore, Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia, and thank you for your contributions. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, please note that there is a Manual of Style that should be followed to maintain a consistent, encyclopedic appearance. Deviating from this style disturbs uniformity among articles and may cause readability or accessibility problems.

Please stop violating WP:NOTBROKEN. —Granger (talk · contribs) 01:22, 21 February 2017 (UTC)

Information icon Please do not use styles that are unusual, inappropriate or difficult to understand in articles. There is a Manual of Style, and edits should not deliberately go against it without special reason. Thank you. —Granger (talk · contribs) 13:20, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

No reason to bypass the redirects[edit]

Hello,
I have noticed this modification. This is not compliant with several guidelines, see WP:NOTBROKEN and WP:SPECIFICLINK. They explain that redirects should be kept. In your modification, the previous link [[Emmy Awards]] was better than [[Emmy Award]] because it was more precise. Moreover, if [[Emmy Awards]] becomes an article about the Emmy ceremonies, the previous link would be OK whereas your new link would have to be corrected.
Several people have already mentioned redirects in your talk page. These guidelines reflect consensus. Do you intent to go to Wikipedia talk:Redirect to change the guidelines?
Regards --NicoScribe (talk) 21:40, 12 July 2017 (UTC)

Hello, have you seen my message? Your first edit after my message was to replace a redirect. --NicoScribe (talk) 09:06, 26 July 2017 (UTC)
I thank you for your answer in my talk page, but the discussion began here so it is simpler to continue it here. You wrote "I still just don't understand what the big deal is; I hate redirects & my edits should b helpful as I'm clearing most of them away to help clean these articles up. Why exactly does it matter so much?", but:
  1. Have you read WP:NOTBROKEN and WP:SPECIFICLINK?
  2. Why do you think that "Henson at the 1989 [[Emmy Award]]s" is better than "Henson at the 1989 [[Emmy Awards]]"?
  3. At least 5 users have already explained to you the benefits of redirects: JuneGloom07 in this edit on 17 August 2015, AnemoneProjectors in this edit on 17 August 2015, Redrose64 in this edit on 19 February 2017, Mx. Granger in this edit on 21 February 2017 + this edit on 22 February 2017 + this edit on 22 February 2017, me in this edit on 12 July 2017 and other users have reverted your edits with clear edit summaries. Have you read Wikipedia:Consensus?
