Responded[edit]

I have responded to your message at my talkpage. S. Dean Jameson 16:48, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

  • I have responded again. They were my edits. I mistakenly thought that they were simply date vandalism. S. Dean Jameson 01:21, 4 August 2008 (UTC)
    One thing I would recommend is using edit summaries, that explain what action you are undertaking with a given edit. This would clear up a lot of confusion, especially when changing dates, removing content, or other such actions. Let me know if there are any specific articles you would like help working on, or any other ways in which I can help you. S. Dean Jameson 02:33, 4 August 2008 (UTC)

link changes[edit]

Hi Yaquifox,

I changed the links because, though the articles do not exist, they are much more likely to get created if there are redlinks to them. Even a stub article on the english page would be useful; those stub articles can definitely link to the spanish versions in the sidebar, as is normal for encyclopedia articles. But this is the English language Wikipedia, and it should link to subjects here where possible, as well as encourage the development of new English-language articles. I appreciate that these articles don't exist yet in English, and there is much more information available in the Spanish-language articles. But they SHOULD exist in English, and to encourage that process we should encourage the creation of english-language versions of those articles. Graft | talk 18:31, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

Hi Yf,
I appreciate what you're saying, but this is something WP is usually pretty clear on - external links should be avoided in the article, and links to same-language content are preferred. And while you may be right that it'll be a long time before someone will get to making those articles, I still think the redlinks are more appropriate - they exist for a reason, to encourage people to create articles, and they work. People fill in gaps when they see them, whereas they're much less likely to do that if there is no single-click creation link there. This is necessary for the growth of the encyclopedia - imagine if other-language WPs with much fewer articles followed such a policy, most of their links would be to English-language articles - which would discourage readers and editors both.
I'm glad you worked on the Cajeme article - if you'll note, I was the one who created it a long time ago, but never knew enough to really flesh it out. Maybe a descendant of Ramon Corona will make a similar improvement in time to that article. In the meanwhile, I think we should leave the tempting redlink there.
