A Note on threading:

Interpersonal communication does not work when messages are left on individual users' talk pages rather than threaded, especially when a third party wishes to read or reply.

Being a "bear of very little brain", I get easily confused when trying to follow conversations that bounce back and forth, so I've decided to try the convention that many others seem to use, aggregation of messages on either your talk page or my talk page. If the conversation is about an article I will try to aggregate on the article's talk page.

  • If the conversation is on your talk page or an article talk page, I will watch it.
  • If the conversation is on my talk page or an article talk page and I think that you may not be watching it, I will link to it in a note on your talk page, or in the edit summary of an empty edit. But if you start a thread here, please watch it.

I may mess up, don't worry, I'll find it eventually. Ping me if you really need to.

please note this is a personal preference rather than a matter of site policy

Disney train articles[edit]

Thank you for your recent copyedits to the Disneyland Railroad article. At some point in the future, consider looking over the Walt Disney World Railroad article, also. It's the sister attraction of the Disneyland Railroad and its article got upgraded to featured status just yesterday. Jackdude101 (Talk) 16:51, 1 August 2017 (UTC)

I took a corresponding look at this article and made several of the same copyedits a second time. Thanks for the heads-up. --John (talk) 18:55, 1 August 2017 (UTC)
