Hash Bash article[edit]

I'm curious - with your recent edits of the Hash Bash article, I wondered if you actually travelled all the way to Michigan to view the event, or were simply touching up the page and adding extra information. Thanks! Daisuke0kun 03:43, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

While I didn't attend the Hash Bash this year, I'd been a couple times previously. Basically I was touching up the page and trying to add some extra info. (And since I was recently motivated to create an article for Chef Ra, I wanted to make sure that it was linked.) Hope you got to attend, and hope you had a blast! -- Hiplibrarianship 17:51, 12 April 2007 (UTC)
I have attended this years and last years Hash Bash, and both times, while laid back, were loads of fun. Thanks! Daisuke0kun 14:39, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

Musicals infobox[edit]

Hey -- I just wanted to thank you for your input on the Infobox. After reading my edit summary, I realized that it kind of sounded condecending, and I didn't want you to think I was being an asshole. That infobox took MONTHS of debate and, as generic as it is, I'm not really sure if it can be improved. You might want to stop in to WikiProject Musical Theatre if you're interested in working on musical theatre-related articles. Might give you some ideas!
And, since no one's officially welcomed you.... —  MusicMaker5376 21:06, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

Alphabetization and collation[edit]

Holy Saturday and Easter Saturday[edit]

Thanks for your comment. In Australia, the day before Easter Sunday is nearly always called Easter Saturday - a google search will confirm this, I think. I agree that it's erroneous, but it's very common, and official, so it needs to be in the article. I'm so glad you found a reliable source that we can quote - the blog won't work, but the liturgical commission the the ABC acknowledgement will. StAnselm (talk) 22:04, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

I Happen to Like New York (disambiguation)[edit]

This is really not necessary and just makes it cumbersome. Since there is no article for the song, the better solution would be to use a hat note. I hope you agree. --Muhandes (talk) 17:27, 5 May 2011 (UTC)

I've been creating the stub for the song. Though your message is making me think that the article for the song could perhaps be the default landing page, with a hat note to the album, and no disambig at all. Thoughts? — HipLibrarianship talk 17:39, 5 May 2011 (UTC)
Sorry, I did not realize you were creating the song stub, better start with it first in the future, to prevent misunderstandings. Anyway, it still holds that when there are only two articles, either one can serve as the default (with no qualifier) and the other appear in a hatnote, and a disambig page is not required. I don't care which one. It can also be done the way you did it now, both articles having a qualifier, one of them serving as the target of a redirect, with a {{redirect}} hatnote, and again, the dab page is redundant, though I find this less preferable (making both articles cumbersome). --Muhandes (talk) 18:03, 5 May 2011 (UTC)
Addendum: I had a look at the song article, and I agree with your choice that the song deserves to be the primary topic. The way I'd do it is ask for removal of I Happen to Like New York through CSD, then move I Happen to Like New York (song) to I Happen to Like New York, as it is the primary topic. Then mention I Happen to Like New York (album) in the hatnote. I'd say it's a personal preference though, you can also leave it as it is now if you prefer it. No matter what you decide, I think a CSD on I Happen to Like New York (disambiguation) is required. --Muhandes (talk) 18:15, 5 May 2011 (UTC)
I'm not really familiar with CSD templates, or the CSD process, but I took a stab at it. Both the (song) and (disambiguation) should be gone soon, with the relevant content in the unqualified article. Thanks for helping make these improvements.
If from some reason it doesn't work, go with {{db-author}}, it requires less administrative judgement ;) Happy to have been of assistance. --Muhandes (talk) 18:56, 5 May 2011 (UTC)

Emmys awarded to Whitney Houston[edit]

Once again to say, the number(two) for Emmys to Whitney is correct. It's just difficult to find a reliable source cited her second Emmy exactly, not even on Emmy's searchable database as you said. Since 1988, all media have just cited the number like this. The award's exact title, "Outstandning Musical Performance in a Sports Program" (at the Special Olympics), was said on Houston's tour book. crowded(talk) 11:18, 25 February 2012 (UTC)

Gor[edit]

Why did you put unofficial sites above official sites, and obscure the distinction between the two? -- AnonMoos (talk) 06:39, 6 December 2012 (UTC)

The Chronicles of Gor site is not owned or managed by John Norman or people working for him to manage the site, but on the other hand, it is John Norman's main chosen conduit for unfiltered general-subject communications to his fans (going beyond unadorned book publishing schedules). John Norman has no responsibility for the non-Norman-communiqué content on Chronicles of Gor, but on the other hand, he has chosen to issue his communiqués through Chronicles of Gor. Given this, I see no problem with calling it a "semi-official site" (as it was described on the "Gor" page). The World of Gor site played a similar role for a number of years until 2007, when it was the official site of Norman's main publisher at that time. I'm not too sure what you meant by the remarks you left on my user talk page, since right on the homepage of http://gorchronicles.com/ it refers to itself as "the new home for John Norman on the internet" and links to World of Gor as "in many ways" his former "home on the internet".

Inline external links[edit]

First off, IMDB isn't an authoritative source. Second, an inline link of any kind should go to where the link says- if it's to a wiki page, it should be a page about that subject; if it's to an external page, it should be to the item in question. A link titled IMDB that goes to imdb.com is one thing, but a link titled "US Steel Hour" that doesn't go to "US Steel Hour" itself, but instead goes to an imdb page about it is no good. That's just advertising for imdb. Third, why would just one item of hundreds in a table have a link to imdb?

In general, though, you'll find that for GAs, FAs, and FLs, there's just never any inline external links. They're in references and an "external links" section only. Better to just create a Wikipedia page for the subject, and use the external link as a source there. --PresN 19:30, 2 August 2013 (UTC)

Title of List of information schools page[edit]

Someone commented on the Talk page of List of information schools that the title should be named List of iSchools, because of your edit that changed the content of the page to a list of iSchools. "Information school" has a broader meaning that members of the iSchool organization. If the page is going to be about iSchools, then the title of the page should reflect that. Perhaps a list of LIS schools would be appropriate in addition. I think you should go to the talk page and respond. Rlitwin (talk) 13:30, 30 May 2016 (UTC)
