Thank you for fixing all incoming links to punk (I'm assuming it was you since you put it in the "Done" section...). I usually keep an eye on that one, but I was busy with school. Keep up the good work. ~EdGl (talk) 02:09, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

Iron maiden[edit]

I had to make a few tweaks there. You accidentally took off the disambig tag. Can you check and see if you made this error at other dabs? Please reply on your talk page, Lord Sesshomaru (talkedits) 05:38, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

Oops, really sorry. I must have removed it when removing the clean-up tag. ­Puceron (talk) 05:40, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

Disambiguating Play[edit]

Whenever my page uses the word "Play" in one of its tables, someone immediately notices, and comes over and disambiguates it.

  1. How is this noticed so quickly?
  2. Does this matter? No one, and I mean no one, will be looking at my List of war films page, and wanting to know what a "Play" is.

I'm guessing an automated process notices this "problem" and you happen to be the one who is fixing the "problem", is that correct?

What if we solve our mutual "problem" by excluding my page from checks for this class of problem? Since this is hardly the first time people have come over to fix the perceived problem.

People, for sure, have better ways of spending their time and more important problems to look into than my war films page, where it happens to say whether a movie is based on a "Novel" or a "Play".

Disambiguation link fixing one-day contest[edit]

I have decided to put on a mini-contest within the November 2013 monthly disambiguation contest, on Saturday, November 23 (UTC). I will personally give a $20 gift card to the disambiguator who fixes the most links on that server-day (see the project page for details on scoring points). Since we are not geared up to do an automated count for that day, at 00:00, 23 November 2013 (UTC) (which is 7:00 PM on November 22, EST), I'll take a screenshot of the project page leaderboard. I will presume that anyone who is not already listed on the leaderboard has precisely nine edits. At 01:00, 24 November 2013 (UTC) (8:00 PM on November 23, EST), I'll take a screenshot of the leaderboard at that time (the extra hour is to give the board time to update), and I will determine from that who our winner is. I will credit links fixed by turning a WP:DABCONCEPT page into an article, but you'll have to let me know me that you did so. Here's to a fun contest. Note that according to the Daily Disambig, we currently have under 256,000 disambiguation links to be fixed. If everyone in the disambiguation link fixers category were to fix 500 links, we would have them all done - so aim high! Cheers! bd2412 T 02:33, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
