Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Doolittle Report, 1954, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page The Doolittle Report (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.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 10:47, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

Note: the disambiguation link was intentional as it is referring to other Doolittle reports. I guess in this situation it often becomes a category; but a Disambig. Page is more suitable in this case. Mediation4u (chat) nb: editing is fun 09:28, 11 October 2012 (UTC)

Doolittle Report, 1954[edit]

Hey there, Mediation. Can you explain what happened at this submission? I think it was just copied, right? I just don't see why you didn't move it, which is quicker and cleaner. :P In general, we move the submission once we decide to create it so the history stays. Nolelover Talk·Contribs 01:38, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

In the past I've had the move button available, and get the chance to give it a new name before creation - which would have worked in this case. It all works usually in a "wizard-like" way and moves across the timestamped AfC template to the talk page, preserves history, etc.
However for some reason the move button was not click-able for me this time. Am I missing some permissions? Or did I miss a step this time which enables the "move" link for me usually?
So instead, I followed the instructions >>here<<. Where I thought the move was done by copy-paste. and I moved the TS across manually, as the preload talk was also not available.
It's left at AfC review stage >>here<< if an Admin wants to go ahead and delete Doolittle Report, 1954, create it as another page, e.g., Doolittle Report (1954) then fix the link on The Doolittle Report disambig page to point to that new page. Then history will be preserved and also red links tidied. Mediation4u (talk) 09:34, 15 February 2012 (UTC)
Hmm...that's odd. Well, do you use a script? There's a great one I've copied below - just paste it into your .js file - that makes it incredibly easy to review submission. Right under the normal 'Move' button will be a 'Review' button. Click that, and it will give you four choices: accept, decline, comment, or mark as in use. All but the in use button have separate submenus for things like explaining your decline reasoning, putting templates on the talk page (if you accept), and stuff like that. Whenever you decline it automatically notifies the submittor, and when you accept it notifies them, creates a talk page, and updates that "Recently created AfC's" page. Pretty useful. I'll go ahead and try to move the Doolittle page. Dunno if it will makes a difference, but it really can't hurt. Thanks for the answer :) Nolelover Talk·Contribs 13:44, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Done....can you look it over to make sure I didn't miss anything? Nolelover Talk·Contribs 14:20, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

Checked, as requested. All looks v. good. nice work. Thanks for the .js, productivity++ from now on. Mediation4u (talk) 14:40, 15 February 2012 (UTC)
Great! Ping me if you have any other questions, whether about AfC or in general. Nolelover Talk·Contribs 15:37, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

Template:Did you know nominations/James Baldwin: A Soul on Fire[edit]

Meditation4u, there were a couple of issues with your review of this DYK nomination, most notably your edit summary, which seemed to contradict the review proper. Can you please address these, and give an icon that matches both new text and edit summary? Many thanks. (Under the circumstances, I didn't feel I could promote the hook into a prep area at the time, but would be happy to do so once the article is approved definitively.) BlueMoonset (talk) 03:15, 19 October 2012 (UTC)

I think my edit summary was optimistic and written before I got cold feet. The article may or may not be good enough for the main page. It is the weakest I have reviewed so far, so I think it is best taken up with the experts at WT:DYK for a third opinion. A worthy cause, but may need a bit more polish for the main page.
