Re: your edit, you stated that no edit summary isn't a reason to revert - yet if you look around the project you'll see that it actually is, quite often and regularly. With this particular editor, you'll note that multiple editors have reverted him for this very reason and he has been warned about it repeatedly. You also said check the article - that is what the editor should have done. It's not my job (or anyone else's) to vet this editors contributions by checking source articles, providing reliable sources when needed and supplying edit summaries to explain his edits. This is just enabling him, not helping him. Have at look at the histories... - theWOLFchild 03:18, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

Oh, welcome back after the block! As you can see, I'm no newbie, but the only two instances I've seen of reverting "just because they didn't put an edit summary in" have been yours. It completely goes against the very idea of an encyclopedia that anyone can edit, and we have a duty as editors to check if the edit stacks up before reverting. Why? Because, as in this instance, they might be right, and you might be wrong. You've recently been warned about your behaviour here, so if this is what you've been waiting to say, I suggest you either learn the lesson, or move on. ‑‑YodinT 19:48, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for October 4[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Fear the Walking Dead: Flight 462, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page The Walking Dead (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.

Strange stories about Strange Stories[edit]

Thanks for your work to straighten out Strange stories from a Chinese Room! I apologize if I made things worse by trying to handle it myself before I realized that I was in over my head. I got lost in the Redirects and double Redirects, but I think it's ok now (including the links to the Chinese, Norwegian, and other Wikipedias that were lost when the article was frivolously renamed). Userfahne Contributions] shows that he has not quit his other contributions, which stretch the boundaries of AGF. Cheers!ch (talk) 20:35, 8 November 2016 (UTC)

That's ok CWH, glad you stepped in, and thanks for all of your other editing! Also good to see from his talk page that lots of admins are now aware of what he's doing (not to mention he seems to have given up at least on the Strange renamings for now – hope I don't jinx it!). And it does somehow feel like it could be the prelude to some modern cyber-horror story! :) ‑‑YodinT 22:55, 10 November 2016 (UTC)
