Ti'iti'i and Maui[edit]

Hi. I've procedurally closed your RfD nomination at Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion/Log/2017 February 7#Maui (Samoan mythology) as what you appear to be requesting is the move of Ti'iti'i to Maui (Samoan mythology). This is generally beyond the scope of RfD. You're welcome to start a requested move, see WP:RM#CM. Noting that your rationale makes sense given the current content of the article, but this used to be very different prior to this edit from 2015. Le me know if I got anything wrong. Cheers! – Uanfala (talk) 02:24, 13 February 2017 (UTC)

Millenia and years from now[edit]

Hey Serendipodous!

I didn't realize there was one table that included pre 12,000 CE years (astronomical events). All the other tables seem to start at 12,000 (12,017) if one were to take the label "Ten thousand years from now" at face value. In any case -- it's cool that there is a page that coalesces far future events like this. I was thinking about maybe starting a "Futurist Club" in my area for occasional coffee / meetups.

On using Wiki (was just reading your user profile): I agree -- if there was a local mentoring/Wiki group I would attend, as I have made some minor edits here and there, but have always had the intention of getting in deeper, mastering the formatting codes/markup, and be able to participate in some of the moderation. I frequently try to convince people on the value of having an account, and contributing occasionally / at least becoming familiar with some of the basic fundamentals of how Wikipedia works (there are so many misconceptions of what "notability" requires, accuracy and reliability and so many other topics.)

Your feedback matters: Final reminder to take the global Wikimedia survey[edit]

Uranus#Edit proposals[edit]

Just to let you know I've finally got round to adding those links. (The Firefly link is a nice touch, BTW) Regards, Moonraker12 (talk) 17:41, 26 February 2017 (UTC)

Gliese 710 in the far future[edit]

With the new Gaia data, Gliese 710 will be passing much closer than 1 LY to the Sun. I can't remember the source for this information, but I would urge you to find it is it's more important to be accurate than to keep things consistent. 2605:E000:141B:18D:6CBA:635D:8171:D165 (talk) 16:25, 3 March 2017 (UTC)

You might have seen it in the project talk, but I did the report that was missing. Any rewrites, or contributing an intro text, is welcome! igordebraga 05:14, 13 April 2017 (UTC)

Kuiper belt scheduled for TFA[edit]

This is to let you know that the Kuiper belt article has been scheduled to be rerun as today's featured article for May 12, 2017. Please check the article needs no amendments. If you're interested in editing the main page text, you're welcome to do so at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/May 12, 2017, but note that a coordinator will trim the lead to around 1100 characters anyway, so you aren't obliged to do so. Thanks! Jimfbleak - talk to me? 13:56, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

  • Congrats on the TFA! :-) [From the user who used to be Ling.Nut].  Lingzhi ♦ (talk) 02:17, 12 May 2017 (UTC)
    • I'm still here, for now. For now at least, trying carry a project through to completion. After that, not sure I have much reason to hang around. We'll see.  Lingzhi ♦ (talk) 05:02, 12 May 2017 (UTC)
  • Joining the choir of praise for the article. Lingzhi, if see no purpose, you might work on my red links (one a day) or Precious praise (one a day), or review my latest FAC ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:18, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

Top 25 report[edit]

I've finished up my Top 25 draft for the May 7-13 week, so if there's any errors, feel free to let me know or even correct them. But other than that, I think it should be ready to go. Thanks again for letting me participate in the report. Cheers :) Soulbust (talk) 21:12, 18 May 2017 (UTC)

Thank you for the kind words & sorry to hear about the cat; sleep is definitely deserved here, so sleep well. Soulbust (talk) 22:38, 18 May 2017 (UTC)

Cut-and-paste moves[edit]

Information icon Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you tried to give 3500 (song) a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into another page with a different name. This is known as a "cut-and-paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page (the tab may be hidden in a dropdown menu for you). This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Requests for history merge. Thank you.

List of stories set in a future now past[edit]

Sorry about that! In my enthusiasm / carelessness, I didn't notice the alphabetical ordering of the previous entries. I'm in the process of reordering my additions now. GusF (talk) 14:01, 9 July 2017 (UTC)

Ways to improve Herschel family[edit]

Hi, I'm Boleyn. Serendipodous, thanks for creating Herschel family!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. This has been tagged for 3 issues.

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse.

An essay and a book[edit]

The Planet That Wasn't. I can't remember who else we were talking to about that. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 19:49, 11 September 2017 (UTC)

I was there. Some of those old 1950s-70s paperbacks with "cool" space-related covers can go for decent money on Ebay. Edwardx (talk) 09:14, 14 September 2017 (UTC)
