Missing information regarding 1979 Tulane Green Wave football players who played in NFL[edit]

Hi Lindsay tried to update info on Wikipedia and really sucked at it. I am Nolan Franz. I played on 1979 Liberty Bowl Team as wide receiver. At time I was a sophomore. I signed as FA in 1981 with Buffalo Bills. I played in USFL as NFL with Greenbay Packers in 1986. Research it and maybe you could edit it to be more accurate. Two years later in 1981 I led the team in receptions and we were 6-5. My last game at Tulane we beat our arch rival, LSU 48-7. Can't undue history. :) Nolanfranz (talk) 23:27, 3 January 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for supporting my RfA[edit]

Thank-you-word-cloud.jpg Hawkeye7 RfA Appreciation award
Thank you for participating in and supporting my RfA. It was very much appreciated. Hawkeye7 (talk) 21:02, 1 February 2016 (UTC)
Hey, Hawkeye7, you're welcome. No matter what the 'crats decide (or decided, it's some time since i looked at the chat Avi started), may i just say that i admire the restraint you showed during the course of the RfA. Lots of people were saying things that can't have been good to read about yourself, but you showed a great deal of dignity and classiness in your responses; cheers, LindsayHello 21:22, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 23[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited M5 motorway (Pakistan), you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Ahmedpur and Daur (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.

Edit to Cyclopia page[edit]

Hi LindsayH. You reverted the page to say "1 in 250 in embryos" are affected with cyclopia. That seems ridiculous to me since we are all from embryos, so 1 in 250 people would be cyclopic. I edited it to accurately say (as it says in other sources) "one in ~250 miscarried fetuses". This was rejected, I think quite incorrectly. I have re-edited this page and added a source also and changed the number to 200 since that's what Leroi says. Cheers and thanks for helping make wikipedia great. - JH — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jiuk (talkcontribs) 22:01, 25 March 2016 (UTC)

Yeah, Jiuk, i've taken another look, and you are quite correct: I was in error. My apologies, and thank you for following up and correcting me. I was tracking IP edits at the time, so the fact that you were not signed in is what led me to (a) see your edit and (b) wrongly view it as vandalism: The benefits of being signed in, eh? Thanks; cheers, LindsayHello 08:07, 26 March 2016 (UTC)

Lajitas, Texas[edit]

Hi there. I reverted your edit, then noticed yours was also a revert, so I reverted to the last clean version. Cheers. Magnolia677 (talk) 00:30, 24 April 2016 (UTC)

Beverly Gray cleanup[edit]

Hi, thanks for cleaning up the errors in the Beverly Gray page! One minor note: In the Plagiarism section, you changed "Indeed it does" to "Indeed, it does." The edit makes sense, except that the part changed was part of a quotation from Beverly Gray at the World's Fair, and in the book it the phrase appears without a comma. Worth keeping in mind for future edits, but anyways, thanks again for your work. --Usernameunique (talkcontribs) 09:42, 26 April 2016 (UTC)

Usernameunique ~ fair enough, it does; i missed that. I would point that out, if i were you, with {{sic}} or some such mechanism so another doesn't make the same error i did. Also, are you aware of signing your talk page posts? If you use ~~~~ the magic of wiki will sign and date your comment; cheers, LindsayHello 15:21, 26 April 2016 (UTC)

Glarus Sud[edit]

Hi. You edited the article Glarus Sud with the comment Repair CS1 error(s), replaced: work=KGS Inventar → work= KGS Inventar using AWB. You did make the change described in the comment, but you also unlinked a number of links in the history section. I'm not sure why, as you unlinked some previous municipality names but not others in the same paragraph, and there doesn't seem to be anything that connects the ones that are unlinked and/or distinguishes the ones that are not. Given the lack of an explicit or obvious explanation, I rather assume an accidental mis-edit. I've therefore reinstated the links. If this wasn't accidental please feel free to repeat with explanatory comment. -- chris_j_wood (talk) 12:54, 9 August 2016 (UTC)

Chris j wood, hi there. Yes, i did unlink some names; generally, while using AWB, i'll remove words that have three or more links (i.e., i'll remove links down to two); my usual practice is not to count (or unlink) those in templates or image captions, and leave the first in the article, as the earlier a link is made the better for the reader, i reckon. The only general exception is if a fairly simple word is linked more than once i'll remove all but the first ~ in the Swiss articles i've been doing, for example, Hamlet (place) is linked quite frequently, as is Parish, and i have unlinked quite a few of them.
Quite true, i don't explain that in the edit summary; on the other hand, there are other, essentially silent, changes made, too, such as replacement of templates, removal of whitespace, &c., which also do not receive a mention in the summary. I won't replace the removal (hmm, that's a poor construction), reverting your reinstatement, but i shall probably continue removing links, barring a change to OVERLINK or further objection. Happy days, LindsayHello 13:10, 9 August 2016 (UTC)
In fact, as you can see here, i have added a note to the edit summary; hope this helps! Happy days, LindsayHello 13:23, 9 August 2016 (UTC)
I did wonder if this was an OVERLINKing issue, but as all the places in the history paragraph were also linked in the lead paragraph, and you only unlinked some of them, that didn't seem to make sense. I'm in too minds about whether this is overlinking or not; the lead para refers to a list of places within the current municipality, whilst the history para refers to a list of former municipalities that were merged to create it. Conceptually different things that could have separate articles, but, as it happens, don't in this case. However the reader isn't to know that, so does (s)he perceive it as overlinking or not. Hum. Needs a ponder, I think. -- chris_j_wood (talk) 14:23, 9 August 2016 (UTC)
