Generalized linear mixed model[edit]

I do not believe it is refspam, and I explicitly asked to discuss on Talk first. This is how Wikipedia is supposed to work. Kindly follow that. SolidPhase (talk) 21:49, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

You are starting an edit war for which an admin may temporarily block you. Yes, we will discuss your edits on the talk page. @Qwfp: has asked you to add text to the article that would make your added reference relevant. Please do that. Until then, the reference alone does not belong. Tayste (edits) 22:04, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

Revert[edit]

Re [1]: Both "1000" and "1,000" are written in that section. I don't care which is used but inconsistency isn't desired (as stated in the MOS section in my comment). Plus you gave no reason why "standard deviation" shouldn't be linked or why ".3" is preferred, again contrary to the MOS. —Mrwojo (talk) 02:55, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

Sorry, I was too hasty and careless; I shall have a closer look. Tayste (edits) 23:37, 10 May 2015 (UTC)
No worries. Thanks for copy editing that article. —Mrwojo (talk) 15:46, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

Cookie[edit]

I object to your removal of redlinks. Already having an article is not a test of notability. See also WP:Red links. Rmhermen (talk) 02:38, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

It's true that not every notable subject has its article yet, tho I suspect most of them do when it comes to notable varieties of biscuit. Notability is one of the criteria for the existence of an article, so it seems to me to be a reasonable test of notability in this context. The occassional red link to an article title that clearly satisfies that criterion would be acceptable, but not the large number of red links that were at Cookie.
Note that according What Wikipedia is not, "Wikipedia is not a directory of everything in the universe that exists or has existed." So, I think that a comprehensive list of all varieties is unencyclopaedic. An article about cookies in general shouldn't be burdened with such long lists. Leave that to the list of cookies article.

Disambiguation link notification for October 27[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Alan Davies, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page The Telegraph (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.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
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.

See also[edit]

You have just removed an annotation in the See also section of Tabetha S. Boyajian with the edit summary "should only include wikilinks to other wikipedia articles". This is usually the case but not always required or appropriate as MOS:SEEALSO says: "Editors should provide a brief annotation when a link's relevance is not immediately apparent." Clearly the OP's use of a subheading for links sharing the same clarification is reasonable here. I will restore it. --Mirokado (talk) 23:35, 15 May 2016 (UTC)

Oh, I see it was intended as a subheading, rather than an item. Still, with such a short list, such a subheading seems unnecessary to me. If the reasons for including the seealsos needs elaboration, that can be done more clearly by adding text within each line after the wikilink. Tayste (edits) 02:50, 16 May 2016 (UTC)

New Challenge for Oceania and Australia[edit]

Hi, Wikipedia:WikiProject Oceania/The 10,000 Challenge and Wikipedia:WikiProject Australia/The 5000 Challenge are up and running based on Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge which has currently produced over 2300 article improvements and creations. The Australia challenge would feed into the wider region one and potentially New Zealand could have a smaller challenge too. The main goal is content improvement, tackling stale old stubs and important content and improving sourcing/making more consistent but new articles are also welcome if sourced. I understand that this is a big goal for regular editors, especially being summertime where you are, but if you'd like to see large scale quality improvements happening for Oceania and Australia like The Africa Destubathon, which has produced over 1700 articles in 5 weeks, sign up on the page. The idea will be an ongoing national editathon/challenge for the region but fuelled by a series of contests to really get articles on every province and subject mass improved. The Africa contest scaled worldwide would naturally provide great benefits to Oceania countries, particularly Australia and attract new editors. I would like some support from existing editors here to get the Challenges off to a start with some articles to make doing a Destubathon worthwhile and potentially bring about hundreds of improvements in a few weeks through a contest! Cheers.♦ --MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 02:12, 24 November 2016 (UTC)

SPSS Delete[edit]

Please discuss on the SPSS talk page, why you rolled back such a useful link. Cheers, Bellagio99 (talk) 02:16, 24 May 2017 (UTC)

WP:EL clearly says "Wikipedia articles may include links to web pages outside Wikipedia (external links), but they should not normally be placed in the body of an article". There's already an official link under External Links at the bottom of the page, which is where it belongs. Tayste (edits) 02:20, 24 May 2017 (UTC)
