Disambiguation link notification for February 23[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Water polo, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Swimming (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.

Speedy deletion declined: Fasination[edit]

Hello JZCL. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Fasination, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: WP:CSD#R3 is only for recently created redirects, but this has been here for six years. Take it to WP:RFD if you like, but redirects from misspellings are usually kept. JohnCD (talk) 19:02, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

Hi John, yes I can certainly understand why this does not count for this CSD. It was just that I thought that this might be a guideline (about the "recently created" redirect) since yesterday I placed a CSD tag on Familt guy and it was promptly deleted, despite having been there for possibly about 8 years. I do understand that it is probably more of an implausible typo than "fasinating"; however doesn't seem to serve as a particularly useful redirect since it has only had 17 views over the past 30 days, and I thought that redirects for misspelling often had a note explaining this such as this. But please correct me if I'm wrong. JZCL 19:12, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
The point of "recently created" is that if a redirect has been in place for a long time there may be links to it from outside WP which would be broken. Advice about when to delete redirects is at WP:RFD#HARMFUL, the general principle being that they are very cheap and worth keeping if there is a possibility they could be helpful. The explanatory note on Athiest is put there by the {{R from misspelling}} template, which is a useful one and I have added it to Fasination. It probably wasn't there because the "Template:R from" family has been developed since the redirect was created. You can read some interesting arguments about redirects at WP:RFD.

Thanks a lot. That's really useful to know. JZCL 21:39, 16 December 2014 (UTC)


Thank you very much! --The Theosophist (talk) 20:23, 30 April 2015 (UTC)

April Fools' Day redirects[edit]

Hi JZCL. No matter how obvious it seems, you should probably add at least a brief deletion argument to the April Fools' Day redirects you nominated at RfD. I wouldn't be so pedantic, but I've seen editors close such nominations as speedy keep on the grounds that it "fails to advance an argument for deletion". --BDD (talk) 21:30, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

Ah yes sorry, I intended to do that later but forgot! Thanks for the heads up. JZCL 09:15, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
