  • Boleyn, why did you remove a link to Loran's diagram from the disambiguation? It is described in the article on Lichtenstein's painting. And your choosing Lichtenstein's painting overCezanne's is wrong: I believe the latter is more important, and the only reason there is an article on the former is that it is bizarre. Wikisaurus (talk) 07:58, 27 May 2018 (UTC)
Hi Wikisaurus. I deleted one entry as it had no incoming links to its red link, so did not meet MOS:DABRL or MOS:DABMENTION. If there's a good blue link to add where it is mentioned, that's great. I didn't choose one over the other, I formatted the page epr MOS:DABPRIMARY, where the article at the primary page is written at the top. If you think there needs to be a change of WP:PRIMARYTOPIC (and they often could do with a change) you may want to request it at WP:RM. Thanks for your reply, Boleyn (talk) 12:35, 27 May 2018 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for June 9[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Beauxbatons, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page French (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.)

Speedy deletion nomination of Template:Булева функция[edit]

A tag has been placed on Template:Булева функция requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section T3 of the criteria for speedy deletion because it is an unused duplicate of another template, or a hard-coded instance of another template. After seven days, if it is still unused and the speedy deletion tag has not been removed, the template will be deleted.

If the template is not actually the same as the other template noted, please consider putting a note on the template's page explaining how this one is different so as to avoid any future mistakes (<noinclude>{{substituted}}</noinclude>).

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.

List of women, who obtained doctoral degree before 1800[edit]

Hi, I found the list you created because it is linked to Elena Cornaro Piscopia. I believe that the Italians listed received laurea degrees, which were the only degree issued by Italian universities until the 20th century. Do you think it would make sense to list the Italians separately and add an explanation of what a laurea was?TSventon (talk) 16:48, 8 June 2019 (UTC)

  • Hi! TSventon, you mean that laurea was like doctorate, but now it is equivalent to magistrate? Yes, please add it to the article, but I do not think we should separate them: firstly, as far as I know, there was nothing like Bologna Process in Middle Ages, so the correspondence between degrees in any two countries was rather informal; secondly, in English-language sources they are called Doctor of Philosophy/Medicine/Laws, not laureas. Maybe a solution is to add a column with a native name of degree? Wikisaurus (talk) 18:05, 8 June 2019 (UTC)
Hi, I need to do more research but my current understanding is that before the 20th century laurea was the only degree awarded by Italian universities so it is best translated as degree. Since the introduction of higher degrees in the 20th century a laurea is equivalent to a bachelor's degree. I will focus on adding to the Cornaro article to start with as the first female doctorate claim has been added and removed a couple of times.TSventon (talk) 15:19, 9 June 2019 (UTC)
Hi, I would like to move the article to List of women who obtained doctoral degrees before 1800. The article refers to "women who obtained doctoral degrees before 1800" and similar articles do not have a comma.TSventon (talk) 11:37, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
  • Hi, of course, I've moved it. Wikisaurus (talk) 11:42, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for that. I am curious about women Doctors of Divinity. Were there any before 1800? If not, why exclude them?TSventon (talk) 09:20, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Penshootoutbox2[edit]

If you want to delete a template, please take it to templates for discussion, not articles for deletion. That said, this does seem to meet a speedy deletion criterion instead, so I've gone for that. Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 07:29, 21 October 2019 (UTC)

  • Oh, sorry, I forgot that there is a special page for templates. Thank you. Wikisaurus (talk) 07:31, 21 October 2019 (UTC)

Google Code-In 2019 is coming - please mentor some documentation tasks![edit]

Hello,

Google Code-In, Google-organized contest in which the Wikimedia Foundation participates, starts in a few weeks. This contest is about taking high school students into the world of opensource. I'm sending you this message because you recently edited a documentation page at the English Wikipedia.

I would like to ask you to take part in Google Code-In as a mentor. That would mean to prepare at least one task (it can be documentation related, or something else - the other categories are Code, Design, Quality Assurance and Outreach) for the participants, and help the student to complete it. Please sign up at the contest page and send us your Google account address to google-code-in-admins@lists.wikimedia.org, so we can invite you in!

From my own experience, Google Code-In can be fun, you can make several new friends, attract new people to your wiki and make them part of your community.

If you have any questions, please let us know at google-code-in-admins@lists.wikimedia.org.

Thank you!
