After the main meeting, pizza and refreshments and video games in the gallery!

Didn't notice it was a draft on Huggle--sorry about that! Kharkiv07 (T) 21:14, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

No problem. Happy editing! — Earwig talk 21:17, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

Itycene vs. Iptycenes[edit]

First of all, thank you for your contribution to the Iptycene article. When creating the article I was thinking about wether to use a singular or plural form. A find the plural form more logical, since iptycene is a general name, several compounds with varying constitution qualify as an iptycene. I understand that e. g. arene and alkene articles are also in singular, but I don't really understand why. Is it simply a matter of consensus? Thank you. Rob.HUN (talk) 10:04, 4 July 2015 (UTC)

@Rob.HUN: Yes, it basically comes down to consensus. Here is the relevant guideline, which lists some exceptions, but none of those seem to apply to this case, so I went with the singular. Usually when you are debating something like this, the manual of style is useful – just try to find the appropriate section. — Earwig talk 18:32, 4 July 2015 (UTC)

2015–16 Gibraltar Premier Division[edit]

Hi, I was about to create 2015–16 Gibraltar Premier Division and saw you deleted it as CSD A3 just two days ago. I have worked at in in my sandbox for a while, see User:Qed237/sandbox4, and I think it is ready for use. I just thought I should check with you, since you deleted it recently. Qed237 (talk) 11:45, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

Looks good, go ahead. The version I deleted was basically just someone saying "this article should be created." — Earwig talk 16:03, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
Okay, thanks. Thought it was best to check since it was deleted so recently. Qed237 (talk) 20:58, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

TfD closure[edit]

Hi, wondering why you reverted your closure here? Alakzi (talk) 23:30, 17 July 2015 (UTC)

@Alakzi: I thought the TfD was relisted on July 1 since that's the date it was filed under (which would have made it over two weeks old and way overdue for a close) but it seems the relist happened yesterday. While consensus seems clearly against deletion to me, I don't have a strong reason to override Plastikspork's decision here and I didn't want to get into a pointless argument over it. I'll redo the closure on the 23rd assuming no one else does in the meantime. — Earwig talk 23:48, 17 July 2015 (UTC)
I don't think anybody would've taken issue with it, but fair enough. Alakzi (talk) 23:57, 17 July 2015 (UTC)

Template:Anne Frank[edit]

Re [1], please could you undelete Template:Anne Frank it to my userspace and I'll have a look what might be merge-able; or even populate it to the various articles that aren't covered by the others. —Sladen (talk) 21:49, 23 July 2015 (UTC)

@Sladen: Sure, it's here: User:Sladen/Template:Anne Frank. — Earwig talk 21:52, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
Cheers! —Sladen (talk) 21:52, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
Looking over it, it appears it must have been forgotten mid-way through an editing session in the mists of time. I've updated + expanded the links (covering in particular not covered by the other similar navboxes, and (Special:Contributions/Sladen) populated {{Anne Frank}} transclusion into the relevant articles—so that it's no longer orphaned. Thank you for the help and indirect prompting! Cheers, —Sladen (talk) 23:01, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
