The Signpost: 29 September 2016[edit]

Link in See also section[edit]

I learn (or unlearn) stuff every day. Regarding this: For years, I thought that piped links are discouraged in "See also" sections. Your revert sent me hunting, and now I find absolutely no reference to any policy like that. So it's time to recalibrate my assumptions, once again. Thanks! — Gorthian (talk) 17:54, 29 September 2016 (UTC)

It's very confusing as dabs are so different to the rest of WP. See also items being not piped in dabs, but piped in articles. See also being "," separated in dabs and "–" separated in articles. The weirdest bit is piping in dabs where at the beginning of the entry even the part in () is italicised (following style), whereas if a link is in the description the () is hidden with piping. Regards Widefox; talk 18:04, 29 September 2016 (UTC)
I think my problem is that I've been working on dabs so much that those formatting constraints bleed out into everything I do. :-P — Gorthian (talk) 21:15, 29 September 2016 (UTC)

Deprodding of The Klingon Way[edit]

I have removed the {{prod}} tag from The Klingon Way, which you proposed for deletion. I'm leaving this message here to notify you about it. If you still think the article should be deleted, please don't add the {{prod}} template back to the article. Instead, feel free to list it at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion. Thanks! noychoH (talk) 22:05, 29 September 2016 (UTC)

I hasn't been removed. Widefox; talk 22:26, 29 September 2016 (UTC)
It has been removed, only due to some time delay (for technical reasons unknown to me) it came into effect later than you changed your proposal for deletion to AfD. Reverting my edit you have removed all my numerous corrections to the article. Now please be kind enough to restore them and only afterwards add your AfD. noychoH (talk) 23:15, 29 September 2016 (UTC)
No, you're mistaken. You removed the AfD which you are not allowed to remove. Instead of debating this on here, the talk, and AfD, suggest you don't create articles if they fail WP:GNG, by using WP:AFC you will get guidance without risking deletion. Widefox; talk 23:25, 29 September 2016 (UTC)
