James George Barbadoes[edit]

Thank you for your comments and corrections, I would like to make this wikipedia as accurate as possible. Once the corrections are made will the "disambiguation pages" warning be removed from the Top of the James George Barbadoes Wikipedia?

Re: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:RRawpower#Disambiguation_link_notification_for_March_26[edit]

"Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Gang of Four (band), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Sara Lee (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."

YES, this has ALWAYS been a most peculiar shortcoming of Wikipedia, especially at this late date.

While I am certainly prepared to concede that I could and should have thought of the likelihood that the particular link in question, Sara Lee, would have at least one more obvious reference to the well-known brand name, the site frankly puts the onus ENTIRELY on users to second-guess whether variations of a given link may, in fact, exist. Unless, that is, by some remote chance my latest version 7.1.4 of Safari browser running on Mac OS 10.9.5 is possibly failing to invoke some Javascript or other means of automatically cueing a drop-down menu by which users would logically be alerted to such variations and thereby given the blatant option to select the appropriate one for the edit at hand.

Protection at Nike, Inc.[edit]

Would you consider lifting the semi-protection at Nike, Inc.? It's been almost four years since you protected it indefinitely. Pending changes could work as a step down if you're still concerned about vandalism. Conifer (talk) 21:20, 4 April 2015 (UTC)

If You Listen[edit]

Thank you for your message. The boredom is that my knowledge in English is mediocre and I often turn to the on-line translator. So, I am always afraid that my texts are incorrect or incomprehensible. It is true that for London I shall have of notice some error. Regards Lézard (talk) 11:13, 18 April 2015 (UTC)

Bot notification for disambig page creators?[edit]

Would it be possible to create a bot that finds instances where an editor moves an existing page with incoming links, and then creates a disambiguation page at the original title, and leave a note (after a suitable time) asking that editor to please fix the incoming links resulting from that page move? An example of what I have in mind would be this message I recently left to a User who has been doing exactly that. Cheers! bd2412 T 16:44, 20 April 2015 (UTC)
