Wikiproject Disambiguation banners don't need to go on every dab page's talk[edit]

Of course, you might disagree with that, but there's a relevant discussion at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Disambiguation#WikiProject Disambiguation banner discouraged on discussionless pages?. Uanfala (talk) 09:47, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

@Uanfala: Ah. I hadn't seen that on the project page. Well, less work for me then... -Niceguyedc Go Huskies! 09:52, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

S-line templates[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your suggestion. I appreciate it. I certainly think your idea is correct and reasonable as you mentioned, however, I'm afraid that Japanese rail geeks won't agree with the idea. That's why I changed the Tawaramoto Line station succession boxes as other Kintetsu lines with multiple train services. Well, I will change the succession boxes again according to your suggestion. Thanks. BTW, I manually undo your correction for Local rail linking to a disambiguation page since I fixed the true problem. Thanks again.–KU (talk) 00:37, 29 June 2016 (UTC)

@KU: After looking at more of those, it probably shouldn't look like the boxes I put on your page. The key point, though, is to not link to Local and Express, as those are both disambiguation pages. -Niceguyedc Go Huskies! 23:39, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

This (The Motels album)[edit]

Responding to message left on Mburrell's talk page:

I see that you reverted my change to the hatnote at This (The Motels album). When intentionally linking to a disambiguation page, the link should go through the (disambiguation) redirect per WP:INTDABLINK. This allows those of us who fix ambiguous links at WP:DPL (and the bots that help us) know that the link is intentional. -Niceguyedc Go Huskies! 22:09, 30 June 2016 (UTC)
Intentionally linking to a redirect page to get to a disambiguation page sounds like the type of logic only a computer programmer would understand. It is not my intention to be disruptive. My goal is to minimize the amount of re-directs. For example, if a disambiguation page is labeled "This", it does not make sense to me to go to another Wikipedia page labeled "This (disambiguation)", just so Wikipedia can then redirect the user to finally get to the originally desired page labeled "This". The word "disambiguation" is used in the label as the visible link title, but just not in the hyperlink path. However, if you insist that you have bots that this would mess up, then I guess I should let a little bit of programming over rule common sense naming and linking. This is not a matter I am invested in much, so if you revert my edit, I won't make a fuss. I am glad you explained why you are doing what you are doing, even if the logic is programmer logic only. Mburrell (talk) 22:40, 30 June 2016 (UTC)
@Mburrell: Please be careful in your goal to "minimize the amount of re-directs." Please read WP:NOTBROKEN. -Niceguyedc Go Huskies! 22:47, 30 June 2016 (UTC)
I know of that policy. I consider it one way that Wikipedia is broken. Was there a debate on creating that policy? In my mind, it is a bad policy. How can I debate it, or challenge it? Wikipedia does many things right, but imposing bad rules, or forcing super-editors opinions on every-day editors is one of the things Wikipedia does wrong. Wikipedia encourages multiple re-direct pages rather than encouraging editors to use correct terminology.
The other thing Wikipedia does wrong, the major sin in my eyes, is removing articles for lack of notability. Lack of references, or poorly created are good reasons, but lack of notability is a poor reason. My reason for editing most days is music albums and artists. What I want Wikipedia to have is a list of every album out there, with a list of album length, song titles, song lengths, writers, guest appearances, instruments used, and other information. I want this for every album I own, or every artist who I am interested in. However, due to lack of notability, there are many albums that do not have their own pages, and are only listed by album title on the artist page, with no other information, or minimal information. Then I have to go to, or, or hunt down other sources. AllMusic sometimes does not list song composers, and sometimes (rarely) gets something wrong, but because it is not a wiki site, it cannot be corrected. Wikipedia should be that one stop shop for all information, but has decided not to be. Maybe it is a space issue on the servers, or maybe they cannot deleted poorly created articles without an objective criteria that also encompasses less than notable albums, but this lack of information due to deletion has taken a bit of the shine off of Wikipedia. It is not the one stop shop for all information, just another stop. Sorry for the rant, but if I was explaining one thing I dislike about Wikipedia, I thought I would mention my main grievance as well. Mburrell (talk) 00:09, 1 July 2016 (UTC)

Glee season articles[edit]

Someone reverted all the glee seasons articles back to the way they were before and removed the notes showing which main cast members appeared in every episode and which were absent for some, please revert them back. I can't I use a phone to edit. It was very unnecessary. Zhyboo (talk) 19:38, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

@Zhyboo: The user that reverted the changes was BlueMoonset. You'll need to discuss the issue with them. -Niceguyedc Go Huskies! 20:20, 7 July 2016 (UTC)
As I have just pointed out on my talk page, that level of excessive (and unsourced) detail is not appropriate to Wikipedia articles, which is why it was removed. The Glee wikia might have it, and if you want to know Glee down to the last minor detail you'll probably want to go there, but we don't (and shouldn't). BlueMoonset (talk) 20:57, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Re: Tucson Roadrunners[edit]

The reason I did that was because the name of the disambiguation page was just Phoenix Roadrunners, and so I felt it was unnecessary. I was unaware that it was important. Thanks for letting me know. Sparkyb10123 (talk) 15:07, 10 July 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation - Jitendra Singh[edit]

Hey, I'd just completed a move of Jitendra Singh (disambiguation) to Jitendra Singh. The latter was originally Jitendra Singh (Congress politician). I looked in to see and fix the links but then I saw that there're far too many and although the original title was for the congress politician, the incoming links are to all and sundry and not just that article. I've never used WP:Cleaner and was wondering if you could run that on this. cheers. —SpacemanSpiff 03:50, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

@SpacemanSpiff: A template was causing most of the links, but I got the rest. All links are good now. -Niceguyedc Go Huskies! 04:17, 13 July 2016 (UTC)
Thanks, this is one of the reasons I rarely close RMs, I shudder to think of the links that I'd leave behind. —SpacemanSpiff 04:20, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

Closing panel for New York naming debate[edit]

A debate is underway about moving New York to New York (state) and placing either the city, the dab page or a broad-concept article at the "New York" base name. Would you be willing to exercise your wisdom and participate in a closing panel tasked with adjudicating this 15-year-old conundrum? Apply here: Talk:New York/July 2016 move request#Closing panel. Note that the move was first approved on June 18 then overturned on July 7 and relisted as a structured debate to gather wider input. You might want to read those prior discussions to get a feel for the arguments. (Be sure to have your cup of tea handy!) — JFG talk 19:57, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

@JFG: I'll be happy to help. -Niceguyedc Go Huskies! 20:48, 20 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Congratulations, you are on the panel - Future Perfect at Sunrise, Niceguyedc, and Newyorkbrad. I will hat the discussion an about 6 hours, and the three of you can begin your determination of the outcome of the discussion. Cheers! bd2412 T 17:19, 26 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Note: I have now hatted the discussion pending the outcome. Cheers! bd2412 T 23:24, 26 July 2016 (UTC)
    • @BD2412: Excellent. I have read over the main discussion page once. I'll be looking at the related pages (previous move requests that were mentioned, all relevant policies, etc.) later this evening. There are other (non-New York) links to fix! -Niceguyedc Go Huskies! 02:30, 27 July 2016 (UTC)

American Authors discography[edit]

Not a big deal, but you replaced a dab link for Oh, What a Life to a non-existent article Oh, What a Life (American Authors song) when it should have been the album, Oh, What a Life (album). I assume you were been going a little too fast and mis-typed it, so I've changed it. I only wanted to bring it to your attention in case WPCleaner (or some bot) made a bad suggestion that could be repeated in the future. Hoof Hearted (talk) 18:39, 27 July 2016 (UTC)

@Hoof Hearted: What I should have done was to create the song title as a redirect to the album. Either way, linking to the album is good for now. Thanks! -Niceguyedc Go Huskies! 18:53, 27 July 2016 (UTC)
