Local Currency[edit]

Hi John,

I saw your revert of the anonymous edit on Local currency. The edit had changed the Simec link in the article, which is to a disambiguation page, to go instead directly to the article on Giacinto Auriti, which is one of the four redirects on the disambiguation page. But, in fact the article on Auriti is the correct disambiguation in this case, because Auriti was the originator of the Simec local currency. The last section of the article on Auriti is about the "The experiment of SIMec". So the edit makes sense. I am pretty sure that it was a good-faith edit and arguably is a good edit. So far as I can tell the section in the Auriti article is the only place on Wikipedia which talks about the Simec currency in any detail. I will leave it to you to decide whether your revert should perhaps be reverted. Best, Person54 (talk) 01:48, 11 March 2017 (UTC)

Hey, great solution! I didn't know you could link to a specific section like that. I learned something. Best, Person54 (talk) 20:20, 12 March 2017 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 15[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Peer (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.

John, I am no expert, but, regarding the New Style Calendar, I can not imagine that the King would adopt anything from the Pope. Even if the New Style calendar is equivalent to the Gregorian, I do not think it proper to state the King adopted the Gregorian. Possibly a minor point to us today, but, I suspect, quite important in its day. Are there any comparisons to determine if there are minor differences? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Chicspandex (talkcontribs) 20:24, 2 April 2017 (UTC)
