Disambiguation link notification for October 3[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Continental climate, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Rainbow Bridge (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.

Wikilinks[edit]

Hi User-duck. When pluralizing a word involves adding a simple 's' or 'es', there's no need to pipe the link. For instance, instead of typing [[Bamboo|bamboos]] to yield bamboos, you can simply type [[bamboo]]s; the result is exactly the same: bamboos. Hope this makes editing a little easier!

The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process.

The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail.

If you wish to participate in the 2017 election, please review the candidates and submit your choices on the voting page. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 18:42, 3 December 2017 (UTC)

Nomis[edit]

Hi User-duck, I've recently updated a Nomis citation you added to Melton, Suffolk, with a new template I've been involved in that may be of interest. {{NOMIS2011}} hopefully makes it easier to create quality cites to Nomis Local Area Reports Search. I hope this is useful for you.TiB chat 00:35, 10 March 2018 (UTC)

John W. Campbell Jr.[edit]

Hi -- I see you're working on John W. Campbell, and I just wanted to give you a heads up. You're changing the citation method to {{sfn}}, which is fine with me, but generally you should get ask on the article talk page before doing. Per WP:CITEVAR, these things should be done only with consensus for established articles. No problem here, just wanted to make sure you knew about it in case you wanted to do the same to other articles. Mike Christie (talk - contribs - library) 19:32, 26 March 2018 (UTC)

And elsewhere - I'm afraid this is an unashamed cite-bandit. Wholesale reversion is probably the only way. Johnbod (talk) 21:24, 26 July 2018 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for June 23[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited John C. Wells, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page CV (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)

Image size[edit]

User-duck, I'm a bit perplexed as to what is the point of all these images size and placement changes. This article constantly attracts attention of users, who jump out of the blue and in a big way start to change the various aspects of the article, this pushy approach is unfortunately nothing new, and also in this case, I don't see a strong reason why long standing image sizes should be changed, other than based on how they look on your individual screen. --E-960 (talk) 18:54, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

Your help desk question[edit]

Your question did not get any responses. Did you find the answer anywhere else?— Vchimpanzee • talk • contributions • 20:08, 8 October 2018 (UTC)

@Vchimpanzee: No, I did not get an answer. This has happened before. (I hope this is the correct method to reply) -- User-duck (talk) 06:18, 9 October 2018 (UTC)
It is. I don't know how to help you but I wanted to let you know you didn't get an answer. It's possible a question like this could be answered at WP:VPT.— Vchimpanzee • talk • contributions • 14:40, 9 October 2018 (UTC)
@Vchimpanzee: The Village Pump may very well be the correct forum. However, I see this as a "Policy" question rather than a "Technical" one. -- User-duck (talk) 15:56, 9 October 2018 (UTC)
Right. I couldn't remember if it was making it work. I thought of that.— Vchimpanzee • talk • contributions • 13:50, 10 October 2018 (UTC)
