Disambiguation link notification for October 2

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited L’Égaré II, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Falmouth and Halifax (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.

Mick Fleetwood

Hi there, just a heads up. This is a good example of the stuff that surrounds Fleetwood Mac. On Facebook, there's been a bit of a rant about the Mick Fleetwood article, specifically that it doesn't mention the late Bob Welch enough. I happen to think that given it's an article specifically about Mick, the current mention of Welch is enough, but some may disagree. Some people may have mistaken the Mick Fleetwood article for the Fleetwood Mac article, and can't see why Welch isn't mentioned more.

The background is this: there's a fair-sized movement to get Welch inducted into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame, which is experiencing some mysterious opposition from Mick, Christine McVie and probably elsewhere. The pro-Welch folk are seeing conspiracy in a lot of places, including Wikipedia. Welch's widow is a part of it, but she is a lovely lady who's been through a lot of hard times, so it's important not to be too critical of her or come down on it too hard, but you should be aware that some people might come along and try to change the article. Hopefully they won't but we'll see. I've already had to clarify to Mrs Welch that Mick didn't write his own article!! If you need anyone to back you up, just ask. Cheers, Bretonbanquet (talk) 20:02, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

No worries, every respect to Bob and his family. It just needs to be accurate, neither overly pro-Mick or anti-Bob. But I'm sure I'll see any changes and can raise anything that seems overly one way or the other to the community and consensus will prevail! Ta, --S.G.(GH) ping! 19:08, 2 October 2013 (UTC)
Exactly my thoughts. Cheers! Bretonbanquet (talk) 23:36, 2 October 2013 (UTC)

Louisiana Highway 1019

Thank you for assessing the article, however there are several specific subprojects for highways in different countries; we have WP:USRD for the US for example. Also, that article is most certainly not a Start-Class article; it is a single-paragraph stub. Imzadi 1979  19:47, 8 October 2013 (UTC)

Ah, I didn't know much about the subprojects. Ta. S.G.(GH) ping! 18:38, 9 October 2013 (UTC)

independent port of strasbourg notes and references

hello you said me I can't put the only link of wikipedia as a reference, but I m not the author, I just actualise numbers and translate the article which was already existing in french. That's why I didn't put the other link. By the way I would like to make an infoboxes like on the french one but I can't — Preceding unsigned comment added by Billy Elio (talkcontribs) 16:20, 26 October 2013 (UTC)


Billboard End of Year Charts Directory

Response to your comment on the page I created Billboard End of Year Charts Directory.

The reason I did this is so that I can quickly navigate to a specific year of the Billboard End Year Charts without having to scroll down and/or clicking anything else like on Billboard Year-End, and List of Billboard Year-End number-one singles and albums only shows the top song and album of three genres per year.

Thanks, MM5 (talk)

Personally I'm not sure a page with only the template itself adds, when you can go to the template alone on several other pages - but that's only my own thoughts on it. If others find it useful, then who am I to say otherwise :) thanks. --S.G.(GH) ping! 18:48, 21 October 2013 (UTC)

October 2013

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Dick Warlock may have broken the syntax by modifying 3 "()"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

Thanks, BracketBot (talk) 23:21, 22 October 2013 (UTC)

So I did! Good spot, Mr. Robot. All fixed. --S.G.(GH) ping! 23:29, 22 October 2013 (UTC)

Hello. As your name is listed under History on the Wikipedia:Peer review/volunteers page, I wonder if you could please take a glance at Fortress of Luxembourg, for which I have requested a peer review. Thanks in advance. Dr Gangrene (talk) 12:55, 28 October 2013 (UTC)

Conflict of interest discussion

Out of fairness, I should reach out to you about a comment I've left at Wikipedia talk:Conflict of interest#Clarification of WP:REWARD. It would be nice if you could weigh in. Personally, I would say that you engaged in paid editing, but not paid advocacy editing, so is that the new standard? Is it okay for corporations to hire paid editors, as long as they don't engage in "advocating", "lauding", or "promoting" the subject? -- I'm not that crazy (talk) 13:11, 24 October 2013 (UTC)

You've actually latched on to the reason I wrote that article on Silgan Holdings. I find the debate quite interesting, and I thought I'd attempt to do it once so I knew what it felt like before I weighed in on the idea. I'm probably going to get the money sent to charity. I'll weigh in. S.G.(GH) ping! 13:17, 24 October 2013 (UTC)
Here's something that seems strange. I asked Jimmy Wales to reveal his opinion about your creating the Silgan Holdings article for $75. While he answered other topics on his Talk page, he didn't answer mine. So, I moved it to a new section, in hopes that it would get greater visibility and a response from Jimmy. Thus far, it's only drawn a hostile response from one Camelbinky. Do you think Jimmy simply hasn't seen the question, or he's gathering more info before responding, or that he intends to not respond for political reasons? -- I'm not that crazy (talk) 03:22, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

Well we ought to be careful that the discussion doesn't end up happening simultaneously in 3 different places. Perhaps put it all at the once place? You could link Jimbo to it on his talk page. --S.G.(GH) ping! 18:40, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

Jimbo indicated that your creation of Silgan Holdings was "extremely problematic", "not healthy", and "corrosive to the moral fabric of our endeavor". Personally, I think Jimmy is coming a bit unhinged. The Reward Board has led to numerous accomplishments of good content (Wikipedia:Reward board fulfilled requests#Fulfilled requests), including yours, and until he realizes that all sorts of undocumented paid editing is going on all the time, this bent of his to discredit disclosed COI editing is just nutty. And now there some loony attempt to delete the Reward Board. It's like all Wikipedia is going insane. -- I'm not that crazy (talk) 14:35, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
Well at least it prompted discussion! In the mean time, I had the user give the $75 to the Rabbit Welfare Association. --S.G.(GH) ping! 14:49, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
Just checking - did the user actually send the check yet? I predicted at WT:COI that you'd be stiffed! Let me know in either case. Smallbones(smalltalk) 01:55, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

Was sent to the Rabbit charity, yes. S.G.(GH) ping! 12:19, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
