Has miscellaneous always been empty?[edit]

Out of curiosity, I just had a quick look at the box headed "Miscellaneous" but it was empty. Has this always been empty? If so, I wonder about the point of this sub-section. Vorbee (talk) 14:25, 4 September 2017 (UTC)

Where is the box you refer to? I couldn't find an empty box headed "Miscellaneous". PrimeHunter (talk) 20:52, 4 September 2017 (UTC)

I was referring to the blue text by a circle with a question mark in it, but I see that there now are topics for discussion in there. Vorbee (talk) 08:09, 7 September 2017 (UTC)


Is this a good place to start? --LUTENTE DUNBAR (Dance with Wolves) (talk) 22:00, 16 May 2018 (UTC)

No, try WP:TWA. — xaosflux Talk 04:32, 4 July 2018 (UTC)

List of Masses by Anton Bruckner[edit]

Before moving Masses (Bruckner) to List of Masses by Anton Bruckner I made mistakes, i.e., I blanked Masses (Bruckner) and its talkpage, and put its content into a new page List of masses by Anton Bruckner, which has been deleted in the meantime.

The move of Masses (Bruckner) to List of Masses by Anton Bruckner is now correct, but, because of my mistakes, that of the Talk:List of Masses by Anton Bruckner is not. Its should content the last revision of the Talk:Masses (Bruckner) before my mistakes of 1 August 2018.

Could you please fix it? Thanks in advance, --Réginald alias Meneerke bloem (To reply) 09:54, 1 August 2018 (UTC)

@Meneerke bloem: Why is Masses capitalized unlike List of masses by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and List of masses, passions and oratorios by Johann Sebastian Bach? It seems against WP:LOWERCASE. If it's only because your account couldn't move over List of masses by Anton Bruckner at the time then I can fix it at the same time. PrimeHunter (talk) 10:49, 1 August 2018 (UTC)
It was indeed because my account was not allowed to move it over List of masses by Anton Bruckner at that time. Please fix it too at the same time. Thanks in advance. --Réginald alias Meneerke bloem (To reply) 11:12, 1 August 2018 (UTC)
@Meneerke bloem: Done. PrimeHunter (talk) 11:20, 1 August 2018 (UTC)
Thanks a lot! --Réginald alias Meneerke bloem (To reply) 11:48, 1 August 2018 (UTC)

Female composers from Ukraine[edit]

Hello, I tried to create a subcategory Female composers from Ukraine under Category:Composers from Ukraine. It did not appear directly under the subcategory Male composers from Ukraine where a space for it exists. Its sitting further down on the page in Pages in category "Composers from Ukraine". I don't know how to move it. Could someone help with this? Thank you. Nicola Mitchell (talk) 18:09, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

@Nicola Mitchell: This is the English Wikipedia. You are referring to pages at Wikimedia Commons. You created commons:Female composers from Ukraine. That is a mainspace page at Commons and not a category. You have to create commons:Category:Female composers from Ukraine. You can request deletion of commons:Female composers from Ukraine with {{speedydelete|G7. Created by mistake instead of [[:Category:Female composers from Ukraine]].}} PrimeHunter (talk) 18:30, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

Is there an instant messenger service I can use to get help? I used to teach English and study skills I also know a little HTML. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jonas 82 34 (talkcontribs) 12:48, 21 February 2019 (UTC)

Doom 3: BFG Edition[edit]

Why isn't mentioned that DooM I & DooM II are included on the disc (Xbox360)? Or the differences between (for example) the ports? My English is OK, but I'm a bit afraid to add such a big portion of information.. Anybody? Oxygene7-13 (talk) 18:01, 27 February 2019 (UTC)

This page is for discussing the Village pump. I've copied your comment to Talk:Doom 3: BFG Edition. the wub "?!" 00:11, 28 February 2019 (UTC)

Village Pump?[edit]

Shouldn't "village pump" be considered a proper noun, i.e. "Village Pump"? I believe I've seen it capitalized when referred to. I make the same observation about "help desk". There is a village pump somewhere, but the specific Village Pump; likewise a help desk vs. the Help Desk. I realize it may be too late to change this, but it still looks funny to me. Thanks. –Roy McCoy (talk) 05:07, 30 May 2019 (UTC)
I've since noticed "the Teahouse" vs. "the village pump". This is so clearly inconsistent that I suppose it's practically too difficult to correct it. But could someone please inform me on this, whatever? Thanks. –Roy McCoy (talk) 15:44, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
