Мой аккаунт логин Intersetuz был заблокирован бессрочно, по причинам: Обход блокировок администраторам Q-bit_array. Я редактировал другие вики-сайты (аналог Википедии) имеющий схожесть к этой википедии. Здесь в главную википедию просто интерес у меня не было. Зарегистрировался и задал вопрос: "Узбекский википедии заблокировали в Узбекистане. С прокси не могу редактировать. Что сделать", Q-bit_array все мои вклады откачивал и заблокировал. Как такой может быть? Какой ещё обход? Вы меня с кем-то перепутаете. Мой IP провайдер texnopromsistem в прошлый год, новогода, бесплатно раздавал статический IP для создание серверы. В результате некоторых IP блокировались в другие аналог вики (ссылку не дам, спам). Пришлось подать заявку на получение Ташкентский IP и вот дали от 185----197. Я понятые не имею действие администратора Q-bit_array. Если надо, я могу подтверждать свою личности, что он меня перепутает с других вандалов. 16:38, 4 ноября 2018 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk)

Умммм... Это не правильный страница. Я не знаю, куда идти. Кто-нибудь? Herostratus (talk) 18:27, 4 November 2018 (UTC)


If one wanted to nominate a mainspace DAB page for deletion, which venue is the appropriate location? John from Idegon (talk) 03:36, 12 November 2018 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion. Flooded with them hundreds 07:45, 12 November 2018 (UTC)
@John from Idegon: Or Wikipedia:Deletion policy#Proposed deletion for uncontentious cases, or speedy deletion WP:G6 for disambiguation pages that don't really disambiguate anything. Shhhnotsoloud (talk) 12:52, 22 November 2018 (UTC)

Lists of people sharing a common name[edit]

Please see, and comment at, Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Anthroponymy#Lists_of_people_sharing_a_common_name. – Fayenatic London 12:00, 22 November 2018 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of disambiguation pages[edit]

A proposal has been opened at Wikipedia talk:Criteria for speedy deletion#Proposal: Move deletion of disambiguation pages from G6 → A12 to move the speedy deletion criteria regarding disambiguation pages from a sub-criteria of G6 to a new criterion A12. This would not change what pages are eligible for speedy deletion. Please leave any comments in the linked discussion. Thryduulf (talk) 12:07, 6 December 2018 (UTC)

DAB page Reticulation[edit]

I stumbled across this and wondered whether to fix as a disambiguation or classify as a stub broad-concept article. I'm not sure, I would welcome opinions in the discussion on the talk page. Thank you. MegaSloth (talk) 13:13, 6 December 2018 (UTC)

Sourcing on Great White Hope[edit]

Great White Hope is a set index. At present it cites several dictionaries for the etymology of the nickname, but neither the set index nor most of the linked pages include references to verify individual holders of the nickname. Comments are requested at Talk:Great White Hope#Sources for individual people? Cnilep (talk) 08:31, 7 December 2018 (UTC)

Tracking click count of a disambiguation page.[edit]

Is there a tool to view click counts of each links in a disambiguation page? e.g. which one of the links in Peter Adamson get clicked the most by the user? I feel this will be useful to inform whether there should be a "primary article" for a disambiguation page. HaEr48 (talk) 00:28, 11 December 2018 (UTC)

I think the information is available to the devs and a Phabricator ticket has occasionally been raised for important cases. Alternatives include diverting the links via redirects that are not used elsewhere, then viewing pageviews for those redirects. Usually we just estimate them from the existing pageview totals.

Sectoral: is this useful as a list of partial title matches, or does its presence hinder the use of Search? Shhhnotsoloud (talk) 07:49, 12 December 2018 (UTC)

The fact that the page was created by Neelix rings alarm bells but it was checked. I would disagree with the top line Sectoral can refer to…; I don't think that single word can refer to any of the meanings listed. As you say, they're PTMs, and several other titles beginning with "Sectoral" are not listed. I'm always reluctant to delete content but I'm not sure that this page is helpful. Certes (talk) 12:25, 12 December 2018 (UTC)
Neelix actually created it as a redirect to Sector, which makes a little bit of sense. It was converted to a "dab page" later. I've reverted to the redirect, but if anyone disagrees, feel free to revert my edit. I also have no objection to deletion. Station1 (talk) 20:27, 12 December 2018 (UTC)
@Station1:I'm happy with that. Shhhnotsoloud (talk) 14:01, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
