What is Go?[edit]

Go (?), known in Chinese as weiqi (simplified Chinese: ; traditional Chinese: ; pinyin: wéiqí; Wade-Giles: wei ch'i) and in Korean as baduk (hangul: 바둑), is an ancient board game for two players that is noted for being rich in strategy despite its simple rules.

Phenocryst inline citations[edit]

On 8 April 2013‎ you tagged the Phenocryst article for its lack of inline citations, a good move. The article has been rewritten with some inline cites, and I'd appreciate it if you could take a look and mark any spots that you feel would significantly benefit from a pinpoint citation using, ideally, Template:Citation needed. Thanks in advance. --Bejnar (talk) 21:31, 11 December 2013 (UTC)

Ah, great - that's much better. Kudos to you. BTW, I know nothing about rocks! Yes check.svg Done. Trafford09 (talk) 23:23, 11 December 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the new help. I corrected "Charlse" to "Charles", and added several citations to the previously unreferenced section. I added a new image as well. Again, thanks. --Bejnar (talk) 16:56, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Francis Goold Morony Stoney, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Clyde (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.

SUL tool query[edit]

Bonjour, et je m'excuse d'ecrire en anglais, mais c'est bcp plus facile pour moi!

Hi. I was in en.wp, in an editor's wikipedia contributions. At the bottom, there was a link to SUL.

I clicked on it, thinking it might tell me what SUL meant. Sadly, its title said SUL in big letters, but gave no description of its meaning, nor link to the same. I've since, being WP-savvy, been to wp:SUL which explains it. But don't you think that the tool should have at least a description of SUL, at least expanding it from its 3 letters? Also, a link to wp:sul would be great.

Thanks for your time. Merci, Trafford09 (discuter) 27 novembre 2013 à 13:38 (CET)

Neanmoins, si vous voudriez repondre ici, en francais, ca m'est egale. Je le comprendrais bien. Trafford09 (discuter) 27 novembre 2013 à 13:43 (CET)

Ah - je vois que vous ne travaillez pas ici, il y a des semaines, selons vos Contributions. Trafford09 (discuter) 27 novembre 2013 à 23:05 (CET)

Hi. In fact I'm coming back from a period of inactivity. I'm now available to help you. Can you please provide me the page where the definition of SUL would be helpful ? We could at least have a link to wp:SUL. Thank you for your suggestion. Regards, -- Quentinv57 09:43, 8 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi Quentin. thanks for making contact. Sorry for my delay - I've been taking a Wikibreak. To clarify my point, please do the following. First, bring up a page of a user's contributions - say Special:Contributions/Trafford09. Go to the bottom of the page of contributions, and you will see a line of links: " Trafford09: Subpages User rights Edit count Edit summary search Articles created Global contributions / log SUL / accounts".

Then click on the letters 'SUL'. That brings up a page [1] entitled 'SUL'.

My suggestion is that that page would say, instead of just 'SUL', 'Single User Login (SUL)'. Also, the letters'(SUL)' could then be a link to Wikipedia:Unified_login. Hope all that makes sense? Cheers, Trafford09 (talk) 11:45, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Evan Bird[edit]

Hello, Trafford09. I wanted to let you know that I’m proposing an article that you started, Evan Bird, for deletion because it's a biography of a living person that lacks references. If you don't want Evan Bird to be deleted, please add a reference to the article.

If you don't understand this message, you can leave a note on my talk page.

Clever folks, could you make this edit work? Trafford09 (talk) 11:29, 19 November 2014 (UTC)

It looks OK for me, what's wrong/what are you trying to do ? Nick (talk) 12:46, 19 November 2014 (UTC)
It does work, but the little box it produces is treated as an image, and put over to the right under the infobox. I think {{Wiktionary-inline}} will do what you want. JohnCD (talk) 18:25, 19 November 2014 (UTC)

Thanks to both of you for checking. I'd not noticed that (as John said) it had put it over to the right under the infobox. So I've changed it to use John's suggestion. Cheers, Trafford09 (talk) 22:19, 19 November 2014 (UTC)

Rainbow/Pink List[edit]

Turns out that they've renamed it to the 'Rainbow List', so I went ahead and created the article there. It's pretty basic right now, but let me know what you think! — Sasuke Sarutobi (talk) 09:46, 26 November 2014 (UTC)

RE: Afroman's 'slap'[edit]

I left a response to your post on my talk page.

I also reworded and updated the article in question with more recent information. I hope that it satisfies what you had originally intended to describe in your edit.

He or she[edit]

Hi, Trafford. It makes sense that Wikipedia already has an official stance on gender-neutral language. I should have realized I wasn't the first person to realize this was an issue.

The Wikipedia style guide asks us to use gender-neutral language where it can be done with clarity and precision, but I agree that writing he/she/they is clunky and distracting. The singular they is just as inclusive, and much more natural to employ. The page defining gender-neutral language says that there is no consensus either for or against the singular they, so I'll make that change to preserve the flow of the original article. Sorry for making things more complicated than they needed to be! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:6:8080:2F5:21D8:906E:B349:8C16 (talk) 04:07, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

Recent AGA edit[edit]

"BBC covered the event on its Newsnight programme" Do you have a citation for that, even just a youtube video?Dairyfarmer777 (talk) 15:49, 3 March 2015 (UTC)

Sorry; at this moment, no. I watched the programme though, and indeed 'borrowed' several screen-shots where they used painted Go stones as analogies for, say, parts of the Sino-US economies. The 30-minute article played on the Obama gift throughout, to examine Sino-US relations. It's very frustrating that, up to now, I've had no success on web searches, Newsnight & indeed my own pc archives. I've not given up though. Maybe I can search my own pc better!

Tuanzebe[edit]

I understand what you were trying to do – Axel Tuanzebe redirects to Manchester United F.C. Reserves and Academy, so the logical thing to do would be to bold "Tuanzebe" in the article per WP:R#PLA. However, I don't think WP:R#PLA applies to text that comes halfway down the page; it even says "insignificant or minor redirects can skip this". The only reason Tuanzebe redirects there in the first place is that he's not notable enough for his own article yet. Furthermore, bolding Tuanzebe's name and not doing the same to any others makes the reader wonder what's special about Tuanzebe; the answer is, nothing. – PeeJay 11:05, 2 November 2015 (UTC)

Oh, and I've just noticed per the above link to Axel Tuanzebe, that article doesn't even exist, let alone redirect to the reserves page... – PeeJay 11:06, 2 November 2015 (UTC)
Hi Tom. I'm glad you understood what I did. Btw, it's not Axel Tuanzebe that redirects, it's Tuanzebe. What distinguishes Tuanzebe from all other Academy players is, I think:
  1. he's United's incumbent Young Player of the Year, and
  2. he's been selected for the first team bench, for a PL game.
But it's prob. not worth falling out over an emboldening, so I've taken the bold off. BW, Trafford09 (talk) 11:47, 2 November 2015 (UTC)
