Tilman?[edit]

Hi....you carried on a conversation that made it seem like you might be related or involved with user:Tilman. It's not really my place but if you do have access to two accounts please be careful how you use them given all the concern over sockpuppet accounts, etc. Thx. Wikidemo 15:17, 8 July 2007 (UTC)

Huh? Oh... hopping in on your conversation there over about Aleksy. No, I'm not related to him at all. I woke up this morning and noticed the Vayner article's destruction. I did a middling amount of work on it and hate to see it go to waste, so when I saw Tilman post a link to the Answers.com version I thought it would be helpful to at least have it preserved in case we need it for later reference.

In regards to the chicken and rice disambiguation page[edit]

Hi,

I noticed that you were removing a template on arroz con pollo and Hainanese Chicken Rice. The halal guys, arroz con pollo, and hainanese chicken rice are all commonly refered to as chicken and rice. A google search will confirm it. Prior to me making a disambiguation for chicken and rice it redirected to arroz con pollo so there was reason for me to add the double redirect to the halal guys and the other chicken dish on top. Now that the disambiguation page has been made I have no problem removing halal guys and the other chicken and rice from both pages. However, because all three are still commonly referred to as chicken and rice a template link on top to the disambiguation page is appropriate. I hoped to have cleared things up. Cheers!

I've left my thoughts in the Talk sections on those pages (reverting Hainanese Chicken Rice, but noticing your comment to avoid edit warring on Arroz con pollo). I'd appreciate a response, but my position is still that the "About" backlink is excessive and should be moved down to "See also". 04:44, 8 March 2014 (UTC)
