Linking disambig pages[edit]

"Holocausto (disambiguation)" is linked explicitly like this (WP:HOWTODAB), so that wikibots do not report this wikilink as needing actual disambiguation (as in your talk page just above :-). Staszek Lem (talk) 17:30, 7 June 2018 (UTC)

Also, please see MOS:DABPIPE: redirects are valid entries in disambig lists. Staszek Lem (talk) 17:35, 7 June 2018 (UTC)

On the other hand, you are partially right; please see Talk:Holocaust (disambiguation). Staszek Lem (talk) 17:46, 7 June 2018 (UTC)

Mike Lester page[edit]

Hello! I sent you an email yesterday, but I read that I should also post here in case you didn’t see the email.

I am friends with Mike Lester, who is a cartoonist for The Washington Post. He has a page that keeps getting vandalized with personal details that are not relevant to his career. He asked me if there was a way to protect his page to prevent further edits for this? I'm not an admin, but I see that you are, so I wanted to reach out to you to see what is the best way to accomplish this goal. I appreciate any help or advice you can give.

Thank you!

Hello Paula. What is happening on the Mike Lester page is not "vandalism" as Wikipedia defines it; Wikipedia's definition is here. Also, biographical articles typically contain "personal details that are not relevant to [the subject's] career"; Wikipedia biographies are not supposed to be a curriculum vitae or résumé. That said, last month I brought the issue to the relevant noticeboard here; please feel free to comment there if you wish. Jayjg (talk) 17:16, 18 June 2018 (UTC)
