Excellent Contributions[edit]

Thank you for correcting my misunderstanding about the layout of Tahrir Square. Looking at your contributions, it looks like you're doing a great job of editing articles about Egypt at a time when many of us want to learn more. (talk) 19:48, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

Non-existent categories[edit]

Please observe WP:REDNOT and only create links to categories that exist. If they don't exist, either create the category, or don't create the link in the first place. Just the act of creating a new category will often highlight mistakes - for instance here you created a red-link category Category:Geography of French Southern and Antarctic Lands - if you'd either used HotCat or gone up to the parent category, you would have seen that there's an existing category Category:Geography of the French Southern and Antarctic Lands. Not only are you making life more difficult for maintenance bots, you're also creating a lot of work for other Wikipedians, who have better things to do than correcting your mistakes. Cheers. Le Deluge (talk) 13:22, 20 August 2017 (UTC)

Sorry for category I semi-created & used mistakenly. I think I later found the existing Category:Geography of the French Southern and Antarctic Lands & used it on relevant articles, but mistakenly forgot & left the incorrect 'semi-created new one' on a/some edits not closed until days later, my apologies.
Please try not to overdramatize just one REDNOT mistake with "making life more difficult" & "difficulty for bots" & "creating a lot of work" — it is the first WP:REDNOT mistake I've made in hundreds/thousands of new categories I've created over many years, and only a singular humble human error of this type. Thanks for your suggestion, but I have no idea how to use HotCat nor its function/purpose unfortunately. Thank you — Look2See1 t a l k → 19:00, 25 August 2017 (UTC)
@Le Deluge: Look2See regularly creates more work for other editors by wrong categorizing work. The multiple notices posted to this talk page by multiple editors and Look2See's usual silence (Granted they replied here) has had me on the verge of bringing all the complaints to ANI in order for the community to assess his contributions around here. BTW Look2See, when are you going to fix the problems as you were asked here[1]?...William, is the complaint department really on the roof? 16:15, 26 August 2017 (UTC)
@Look2See1 - it's far from the first red category I've fixed of yours, I just don't complain about it normally. But this one would have been easily caught if you were using WP:Hotcat - got to Preferences | Gadgets to enable it, it puts buttons by the category links which allow you to change them with the help of autocomplete. It stops errors like this and allows you to see what other categories are available.Le Deluge (talk) 00:54, 28 August 2017 (UTC)
Thanks @Le Deluge:, for the link to WP:Hotcat & set up steps, and also for quietly correcting the other red-link categories I've mistakenly created in past. Sometimes I begin & then pre-populate a 'soon to be' new cat before the final creation, adding Commonscat, & hitting 'save changes.' I won't delay with pre−populating hereon, so neither you nor other editors are not put in a quandary or feel put out to do the final creating set up & save themselves. — with appreciation Look2See1 t a l k → 03:40, 5 September 2017 (UTC)

Your good-faith edit of template:Tubestation[edit]

Please be extremely careful that other templates transcluding such templates are exceptionally susceptible to unnecessary line break at the end of the transcluded content and the noinclude tag, which breaks many Wikipedia:Route diagram templates. In most cases, the noinclude tag should follow immediately after the last byte of character unless a hard line break is intentional. Thank you. -- Sameboat - 同舟 (talk · contri.) 06:46, 12 September 2017 (UTC)

Thank you Sameboat, for explaining correct 'noinclude tag' positioning. — Look2See1 t a l k → 06:50, 12 September 2017 (UTC)

John Saladino[edit]

Thank you very much indeed for your edit to John Saladino. You left the modest summary, (copy edit, links, refs, cats.) for this edit, in which you basically wrote the whole article based on the sources I haphazardly left on the talk page to ward off hasty deletion. Essentially you did the job I was supposed to do. I'm humbled and I award you this Rescue Barnstar* (in the hope that it isn't premature), with the promise that I will also contribute to expand the article as you have done.

thank you for rescuing John Saladino Edaham (talk) 07:42, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

*-I couldn't find your name at Wikipedia:Article_Rescue_Squadron, but the star can be awarded by and to anyone as far as I'm aware Edaham (talk) 07:42, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

Thank you very much @Edaham:, for your noticing efforts & appreciation. Saladino's Montecito project is quite amazing, as is his much of his other work, so a potential deletion was 'alarming.' A Rescue Barnstar, wow, thanks — Look2See1 t a l k → 07:52, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

Category:Botanists active in North America[edit]

An interesting question about Category:Botanists active in North America is whether "North America" should have the same meaning as in the flora distribution categories, i.e. the same as in Category:Flora of North America. If so, neither Category:Botanists active in the Caribbean nor Category:Botanists active in Central America should be subcategories of this category.

(I've long thought that it was a serious mistake use "North America" rather than "Northern America" in the name of the category Category:Flora of North America; it continually misleads editors not familiar with the WGSRPD system, and leads to the kind of mismatch found here.)
