Style problems etc.[edit]

Eep, sorry. Meant to get back to you earlier, but I got sidetracked.

Regarding the first question: I'm not sure, to be honest. I've seen it a few places myself, but never have been entirely sure how to get around it. If you click on "My Preferences", you have an option on the "Appearance" tab which allows you to choose a default setting for thumbnails. That might help.

Regarding the second question: You can use MLA guidelines; I've seen it done, though not frequently. Personally, I don't use it, because I think it looks a bit odd in context. But it's not wrong, in and of itself. Wikipedia:Citing sources explains some of the options available. I tend to use a modified MLA formatting; rather than putting the name and page number in parentheses, I write the footnote as if it were the MLA citation and stick the page numbers in at the end.

There isn't really one overarching standard; just so long as what you do looks good and gets the information across you should be fine. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 05:06, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

Re: Article Deletion: Kreayshawn[edit]

Re your message: There is no need for me to restore the revisions from May. The article has been expanded by many editors and there would be nothing to gain in restoring the deletion revisions. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 03:10, 14 July 2011 (UTC)

Re your message: Not a problem. I didn't remember that I had deleted KREAYSHAWN, too. I had only looked at Kreayshawn. Generally speaking, if a person becomes notable sometime after their article is deleted, a new article is written and the old version is not restored since the old version would not have anything to establish their notability. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 05:28, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for October 18[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited K. Venkatappa, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Ravi Varma. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
