Reverted my edit[edit]

This is absolutely not a big deal, but I wanted to let you know that I was just editing a single sentence to make it sound better. I was not the Wikipedia editor who provided the original information, so therefore, I am not able to provide a "citable source" on the Trammel_hook Wikipedia page. Thank you.

@Beauty School Dropout: Sorry about that. I misinterpreted the diff and thought you'd added the sentence. Pburka (talk) 22:37, 7 December 2017 (UTC)

No problem. I'm the witch who is always scolding newbies about citing their sources, LOL. Beauty School Dropout (talk) 23:15, 7 December 2017 (UTC)

"non-diffusing categories"[edit]

Hi User:Pburka, re your restoring edits here, here and here, I wonder could you direct me to the defintion of "non-diffusing categories" and to where the applicability is made apparent at the pages of those three Categories? Many thanks. Martinevans123 (talk) 15:11, 28 May 2018 (UTC)

Sure! There's a good explanation here: Wikipedia:Categorization#Non-diffusing subcategories. There's also a relevant discussion specifically about categories of women here: Wikipedia:Writing about women#Male is not the default. Pburka (talk) 15:15, 28 May 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. Assuming that one hasn't ever see those discussions, how is one expected to realise that Category:Pseudonymous writers is not a simple parent Category of Category:Pseudonymous women writers and thus redundant? Thanks. Martinevans123 (talk) 15:18, 28 May 2018 (UTC)
The categories Category:Pseudonymous women writers and Category:Victorian women writers both include boxes at the top (via a template) which indicates that they're non-diffusing subcategories. Pburka (talk) 15:20, 28 May 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. It must have been a case of "box blindness" on my part. Many thanks. Martinevans123 (talk) 15:43, 28 May 2018 (UTC)

Suggest merger[edit]

What would you think about merging the Tearoom Trade article with the one about Laud Humphreys? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tearoom_Trade to be merged with https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laud_Humphreys The Tearoom Trade article is pretty outdated, and it is poorly sourced. It is also unbalanced in that it focuses on the research ethics issue, and not on the study itself. You seem to be the last editor who commented on the Tearoom Trade article, which is why I am pinging you.AnaSoc (talk) 04:09, 21 June 2018 (UTC)
