Disambiguation link notification for September 16[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Nailsea and Backwell railway station, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Portishead (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.

List of Star Trek Novels[edit]

Dear Mattbuck:

First, the new Strange New Worlds 2016 is an e-book. I indicated that; you deleted it.

Also, the List of Star Trek Novels page is a list for Star Trek Novels (as well as Short Stories). There have been numerous (possibly hundreds) of books about Star Trek including various reference books or even fictional reference books that did not contain stories. The Miscellaneous Section of the Star Trek List of Novels page has for some reason included a few of these books.

These include: The Ferengi Rules of Acquisition (Ira Steven Behr), July 1995 The Star Trek Cookbook (Ethan Phillips and William J Birnes), January 1999 The Hologram's Handbook (Robert Picardo, with art by Jeff Yagher), 2002

Additionally, for some reason the Miscellaneous section included books that are not "Miscellaneous" but are listed under The Next Generation. These include: Articles of the Federation (Keith R. A. DeCandido), May 2005 A Singular Destiny (Keith R. A. DeCandido), January 2009

Additionally the Miscellaneous Section included books that are merely Omnibus volumes of DS9 books already listed in the DS9 section (if anything they should be listed in the DS9 section):

Twist of Faith - DS9 "relaunch" reprint omnibus (S. D. Perry, David Weddle & Jeffrey Lang and Keith R. A. DeCandido), July 2007 These Haunted Seas - DS9 Mission Gamma reprint omnibus (David R. George III and Heather Jarman), June 2008

There have been hundreds and hundreds of Star Trek comic books. Many of these have been re-printed in "book"form (IDW constantly comes out with them). Why list just the Manga comics and not all the others? None should be listed as comics are not novels (or short stories).

It is for these reasons that I deleted the other "Miscellaneous" books

One volume missing of short stories (although parodies) that I had added is: Treks Not Taken which can be found here. https://www.amazon.com/Treks-Not-Taken-Vonnegut-Generation/dp/0060952768

UCL Institute of Education[edit]

UCL Institute of Education street address, please. Is it on Gower Street or Bedford Way? (Duplicate question on Wikimedia Commons.)--Dthomsen8 (talk) 20:29, 18 December 2016 (UTC)

Dthomsen8 I don't know. Perhaps you could consult their website? If you're referring to my photo, it's geocoded, go look at it on a map. -mattbuck (Talk) 22:30, 18 December 2016 (UTC)
