Hi Leschnei this is regarding the @@The inclusion of Dying in the hatnote for Dyeing is to help guide readers. Can we put this tag in Dying if it is really necessary?Rajiv Sharma (talk) 02:49, 9 August 2018 (UTC) Hi Leschnei I have seen the changes and you are right they are appearing better now, thanksRajiv Sharma (talk) 02:44, 9 August 2018 (UTC)

@RAJIVVASUDEV: the hatnotes should be (and are) in both articles. Many people mix up the spellings of 'dyeing' and 'dying'; the hatnotes are designed to get people where they need to be with a minimum of clicks. And PLEASE put new edits at the bottom of the talk page. I keep having to move yours down. Leschnei (talk) 11:42, 9 August 2018 (UTC

Got it, ThanksRajiv Sharma (talk) 17:54, 10 August 2018 (UTC)

Recent link changes from Popsicle to Popsicle (Disambiguation)[edit]

Recently you created a double re-direct situation by changing several hat note links from Popsicle to Popsicle (disambiguation) (which now redirects back to Popsicle). Please note that throughout Wikipedia the references to Popsicle are about even on their intention to mean either Popsicle (brand) or a generic ice pop in addition to a mix of several other meanings. Therefore the solution was to make Popsicle the disambiguation page, as prior to that the brand page was buried. Is this the best way? I don't know, but that's the rationale used. Looking through your edit history it seems you have more experience with dab pages than I do, so I defer. I've never come across a situation where the intended meaning of a word is about split.

@Lexlex and Certes: I have been following the various disambiguation discussions, including at styrofoam (disambiguation), and the battle over whether (disambiguation) redirects should also lead to set list articles, and it's all a bit of a mess. It seems that the community at large is changing/refining their views on how disambiguation works and how that will guide article titles. I have stayed out of the fray because I'm really not sure what the best (or least worst) solution is.
With respect to Popsicle (brand) and Popsicle (song), I changed the links in the hatnotes according to WP:DPL. By linking to Popsicle (disambiguation), it shows that the editor is intentionally linking to a disambiguation page. The edits really had nothing to do with the question of whether Popsicle or Popsicle (disambiguation) should be the disambiguation page. As Wikipedia grows and becomes more international, I suspect that more articles that were once considered primary will be moved to disambiguated names, like Popsicle (disambiguation), and disambiguation pages (or lists, or whatever) will take the primary name.
