Disambiguation link notification for December 9[edit]

An automated process has detected that when you recently edited List of seamounts in the Marshall Islands, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Crater, Talus and Slump (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

(Opt-out instructions.) --DPL bot (talk) 09:34, 9 December 2018 (UTC)

Done and also fixed a table issue. It also seems like the content I was planning to copy from that list to Ruwitūn̄tūn̄ was already at the Ruwitūn̄tūn̄ article so left that alone. Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk, contributions) 09:52, 9 December 2018 (UTC)

Wōdejebato scheduled for TFA[edit]

This is to let you know that the Wōdejebato article has been scheduled as today's featured article for January 15, 2019. Please check the article needs no amendments. If you're interested in editing the main page text, you're welcome to do so at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/January 15, 2019, but note that a coordinator will trim the lead to around 1000 characters anyway, so you aren't obliged to do so.

We also suggest that you watchlist Wikipedia:Main Page/Errors on the day before and the day of this TFA. Thanks! Jimfbleak - talk to me? 14:49, 9 December 2018 (UTC)

Is it a coincidence that I've got 4 featured articles under my belt and already two were on TFA or are scheduled to go there? Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk, contributions) 16:05, 9 December 2018 (UTC)
The delegates have to work from Wikipedia:Featured articles that haven't been on the Main Page, and have to pick from a range of categories to avoid imbalance, and within those categories need to try to maintain a geographic spread. Because there isn't much to choose from in WP:FANMP#Geography and places, and almost all there is to choose from there is about either the UK (indeed, six of them are about districts of Manchester) or US, if you write a geography article that isn't about the US or UK it will be fast-tracked unless you complain. (Of the other two non-Anglosphere entries, I assume Istanbul is being saved for a significant date of some kind and Socialist Soviet Republic of Abkhazia is too contentious.) If you want to avoid constantly being picked for TFA, the best thing to do is find some pretext to reclassify your articles as "warfare". (When I complained, the delegates did agree to leave me alone, but that was after I pointed out that I'd written the second-most-viewed TFAs of 2015, 2016 and 2018 and if they carried on expecting me to put up with them shoving me against my wishes into the main page crapflood I'd just withdraw all cooperation from FAC altogether.) In my experience, provided you have a legitimate reason not to see something run—either because you won't be around to maintain it on the day, or because you feel the topic is overrepresented—they're always willing to withdraw it. ‑ Iridescent 16:36, 9 December 2018 (UTC)
(edit conflict) Not really. Currently the number of newly created FAs is insufficient to replace those used at TFA (which is why we now also have occasional reruns). Unless your FAs are in a particularly well-supplied topic area, like video games or Banksias, the chances are now pretty good that they will have their place in the sun. Following on from Iridescent's comment, even some of the existing FAs can't run because of editor objections, or they're too controversial or have simply not been well enough maintained Jimfbleak - talk to me? 16:44, 9 December 2018 (UTC)
