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.

Disambiguation link notification for October 1[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Elijah Burke, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Storyline. 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.

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)

Hello Trafford09,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Cub reporter for deletion, because it doesn't appear to contain any encyclopedic content. Take a look at our suggestions for essential content in short articles to learn what should be included.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

Hello[edit]

Hello you recently reverted some changes on this page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nolan_Bushnell

The user had corrected Nolan Bushnell's number of children from 7 to 8. Text on the actual wikipedia page already supports this, so unless that text is incorrect (in which case that should be updated) this is a correct edit and I feel you should re-implement those changes.

The text on that page supporting this is the follow: "Bushnell's first marriage was to Paula Rochelle Nielson with whom he has 2 children. Bushnell's oldest child, Alissa, worked with him at uWink. His second marriage was to Nancy with whom he has 6 children."

The text currently contradicts what is in the personal information box so I'll leave it up to you to decide which you change, but as it stands it's worse than the edit you reverted. — Preceding unsigned comment added by ZZZIMAWAKE (talkcontribs) 13:11, 29 March 2017 (UTC)

Hi there, techie friends!

I'd like to correct Murder of Tim Bosma which, as you'll see, has Cite errors.

I wonder if you'd be good enough to correct it, and then I'll scan your edit to learn how you did it?
