Six Thinking Hats disambiguation[edit]

Is there a specific redirect you're trying to catch here? We should only disambiguate to "did you mean these other hats" if there's a chance that the user will have typed in a URL or search query expecting to read about Buddhism, but ending up at Edward de Bono. I'm not sure I see that here. --McGeddon (talk) 19:39, 20 November 2009 (UTC)

BUMMMFITCHH may be on its way out[edit]

At Talk:BUMMMFITCHH it has been suggested that the page may be a candidate for deletion, since it lacks reliable sources. If you have anything to add to that discussion, sooner will be more useful than later, I think. Best regards, __ Just plain Bill (talk) 14:47, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

Articles for deletion nomination of BUMMMFITCHH[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

I have nominated BUMMMFITCHH, an article that you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/BUMMMFITCHH. Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time.

Please contact me if you're unsure why you received this message. --jpgordon::==( o ) 16:53, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

Erev redirect[edit]

FYI, I added a redirect from "Erev" to Eruv, so searching for erev will return Eruv like you expected. "EREV" (capital letters) still redirects to Chevrolet Volt. --Vossanova o< 18:36, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

edit to Honey bee[edit]

Hi. Just to clarify why I reverted your addition: (1) only a few species of honey bees live in hives, and that particular article is generalized to features shared among all species - since talking about old bees dying inside the hive is not pertinent to most honey bee species, it would - if anywhere - belong in the Apis mellifera article (2) honestly, as a bee researcher, I'm not so sure that your supposition is correct; old bees DO die in the hive all the time, as an old bee may be able to return from a foraging trip and then be unable to get airborne when she tries to leave on another. There is, in plain fact, a special "sub-caste" of workers whose task in the hive is to find and discard dead or dying bees, known as "undertakers". If you can find a published reliable source that says that bees dying of old age do so outside of the hive more often than not, then that would be fine, but otherwise this sounds like original research - a conclusion that is not supported by published evidence. Dyanega (talk) 16:24, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

You asked why I don't add information on sub-castes of workers, and it's simple: this material pertains ONLY to the Western honey bee, and does not belong in the Honey bee article at all. No one knows for certain how the other species act, but one clearly wouldn't expect this behavior in the species that are not cavity-nesters. The only other article where it might belong is Honey bee life cycle, which is itself badly in need of additional material. In that respect, it is that the material was inappropriate for the particular article you placed it in. As for original research, it's not really open to a lot of philosophy or debate; editors are supposed to follow WP policy whether they approve of said policy or not, and this particular policy is one of the cornerstones of Wikipedia. Without it, Wikipedia would be swallowed up in utter chaos. I'm a world authority on bees (among other things), and there are virtual textbooks worth of original research I could contribute to Wikipedia, but I am 100% behind the policy that prohibits me from adding any of this - because that same policy prevents all the crackpots from destroying the whole endeavor ("I have proof that the government is controlling us all with nanotechnology!"). It's a double-edged sword, and I for one am all for it. Sure, it can stifle genuine contributions, but since we cannot have an objective and enforceable method to determine which contributions are legitimate, there is no real option other than prohibition. If you want to make original contributions to public knowledge, then publish peer-reviewed articles (which I do) or write a blog. Dyanega (talk) 00:41, 3 September 2010 (UTC)

Your contributed article, Professorial degree[edit]

Imbox notice.png

Hello, I notice that you recently created a new page, Professorial degree. First, thank you for your contribution; Wikipedia relies solely on the efforts of volunteers such as you. Unfortunately, the page you created covers a topic on which we already have a page - Professor. Because of the duplication, your article has been tagged for speedy deletion. Please note that this is not a comment on you personally and we hope you will to continue helping improve Wikipedia. If the topic of the article you created is one that interests you, then perhaps you would like to help out at Professor - you might like to discuss new information at the article's talk page.

If you think that the article you created should remain separate, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. Additionally if you would like to have someone review articles you create before they go live so they are not nominated for deletion shortly after you post them, allow me to suggest the article creation process and using our search feature to find related information we already have in the encyclopedia. Try not to be discouraged. Wikipedia looks forward to your future contributions. Lothar von Richthofen (talk) 10:05, 1 October 2010 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Pericles and "squill-head"[edit]

The identification of the plants which corresponded to classical plant names has long been a source of both puzzlement and fascination. I think that "Squill" is considered to be the plant now called [[Drimia maritima], which was at one time put in the genus Scilla, but isn't currently. So your addition to the Scilla article isn't quite right. I don't currently have access to a book by Raven which discusses what plants correspond to classical names; when I do, I'll check whether I'm right in thinking that squill = Drimia maritima. If either of us can find a source, then you could put a note about Pericles in that article. Peter coxhead (talk) 04:08, 7 June 2011 (UTC)


Captain Scarlet Template[edit]

  • Hi Neuralwarp, I am writing to tell you that I have reverted one of your changes to the Captain Scarlet Template, where you changed the list order and some colour schemes. This is because I felt that the template, didn't look as interesting as the previous version, and the fact that the majority of it was red seem to correspond with the series rather than it being black. But thank you for you links to the Angel Interceptor.

Jcamts (talk) 20:02, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

  • It was mainly to do with the colour change. It works well with the spectrum logo, plus it's one of the most colourful things on this website. I recently reversed another change to the template by a user who just took out the entire colour leaving it with the standard light blue of Wikipedia. So I think the template takes quite a few people by surprise when they first see it.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited DRACO (antiviral), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Cell (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).
