Problem Background:

  • I moved "American Democracy Project" to "American Democracy Project (527 group in Florida)". This automatically created a "Redirect" page.
  • Someone added an article about a different "American Democracy Project" (of the AASCU) to the Redirect Page. The new text was invisible.
  • I updated some links in other articles to point to the article about the 527 group, instead of the "redirect" page.
  • I removed the "#Redirect" tag on the "American Democracy Project" page, and did some other edits.

Problem: When the "Discussion" tab is clicked on the "American Democracy Project" (AASCU), it links to the article about the 527 group. Clicking on the "Article" tab on that page will go to the article about the 527 group.

How can the article about the AASCU effort be given its own talk page? A) Can the links be fixed? B) Should the newer article be moved? If it is moved, will there be a similar problem with the links?

Also, the new article hasn't been placed in a category.

Thanks.

When one moves a page, the talk page is moved too and replaced with a redirect. The problem was that the talk page was redirecting. To fix that, one clicks the link at (Redirected from ____) and edits the non-redirected page to remove the "redirect" text. I've done that for you, and I think that should fix most of the problem. Hope that helps and feel free to leave a note at my talk page if you have more questions! --Keitei (talk) 02:51, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

Choke[edit]

Please reconsider your definitions. One of the many definitions of "choke" in most quality dictionaries, and the one relative to sport, is "to be seized with tension and fail to perform well". Note the inclusion of two things at once: tension and inhibited performance. It refers always to an individual and almost never to a team and has virtually nothing to do with odds or favorites. When a basketball player is on the free throw line with no time left on the clock and sinking the free throw will win the game then he "chokes" if he sends a clunker off the front of the rim. It is derived from the choking feeling people get when they are under great stress... as in fear. The stress can close their throat down and inhibit breathing... choking.

Trust this 75 year old sports writer. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ronsmith100 (talkcontribs) 01:20, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, Ronsmith100, but I don't understand the context of your remarks about choking. Can you point to a relevant page? SlowJog (talk) 03:46, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
