In these cases as this one (as you pointed out was a snowball) at en for deletion a QD can happen instead. The only people who keep editing it are IPs but the page is only protected for 2 days. This could just be an admin decision because as soon as it gets unprotected it will get vandalized again. I did ask an admin in private and they will get back to me later tonight if the RfD can be turned into a QD under non-notable. PotsdamLamb (talk) 23:32, 10 June 2022 (UTC)

@PotsdamLamb: That's fair, I see no claim of notability about the subject either. I usually prefer to see a thorough deletion discussion when one is opened. — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 00:42, 11 June 2022 (UTC)

please read this. disambiguation page links.Edit

Links to disambiguation pages from mainspace are typically errors. In order to find and fix those errors, disambiguators generate reports of links needing to be checked and fixed. Because these reports cannot distinguish cases where an editor has made such a link with the intent to point to the disambiguation page, the community has adopted the standard of routing all intentional disambiguation links in mainspace through "Foo (disambiguation)" redirects. This makes it clear that such links are intended to point to the disambiguation page.

For example:

  • In text or in a "See also" section of an article that is not itself a disambiguation page:
    • Incorrect: There are many places named [[Springfield]]
    • Correct: There are many places named [[Springfield (disambiguation)|Springfield]]
  • On a disambiguation page, an intentional link to another disambiguation page that does not contain "(disambiguation)" in the title:
    • Incorrect: [[Springfield]]
    • Incorrect: [[Springfield (disambiguation)|Springfield]]
    • Incorrect: [[Springfield|Springfield (disambiguation)]]
    • Correct: [[Springfield (disambiguation)]]
  • In a hatnote:
    • Incorrect: {{other uses|Springfield}}
    • Correct: {{other uses|Springfield (disambiguation)}}
    • Correct: {{other uses|Springfield (disambiguation){{!}}Springfield}}[a]

It may be necessary to create the redirect ("Springfield (disambiguation)" in these examples) if it does not already exist. This is described below.

When to link to a disambiguation pageEdit

With few exceptions, creating links to disambiguation pages is erroneous. Links should instead point to a relevant article. The purpose of a disambiguation page is to give a list of articles that is likely to include what a reader is looking for when they have typed an ambiguous term into the search box. Disambiguation pages are not articles and so should not be tagged as orphans per the Orphan criteria.

The exceptions, when an intentional link to a disambiguation page is appropriate, are:

  • Links from set indexes: Laing (surname) contains a link to John Laing (disambiguation).
  • Exceptionally, in a "See also" list of interesting internal links where several different articles might be of interest to the reader and multiple ones are listed on the disambiguation page.
  • In a redirect page (below)

How to link to a disambiguation pageEdit

To link to a disambiguation page (rather than to a page whose topic is a specific meaning), link to the title that includes the text "(disambiguation)", even if that is a redirect—for example, link to the redirect Springfield (disambiguation) rather than the target page at "Springfield".

  • If the redirect does not yet exist, create it and tag it with {{R to disambiguation page}}.
  • If you are linking within a template, such as a hatnote template, you can still use pipe syntax so that the link does not show the new qualifier. To do this, use the {{!}} character-substitution template.

This helps distinguish accidental links to the disambiguation page from intentional ones. (For use in navboxes, see the {{D'}} template.) There is nothing wrong with linking to a redirect instead of linking directly to the disambiguation page; redirects are "cheap" and are basically transparent to the reader.

Redirects to disambiguation pagesEdit

Valid causes for redirecting to a disambiguation page include:

  • Incomplete disambiguation (see above)
  • Redirects from misspellings: Britian redirects to the "Britain" disambiguation page.
  • Redirects from alternative spellings if separate disambiguation pages are not warranted: Türk redirects to the Turk disambiguation page.
  • Redirects from variations in capitalisation, word separation, or punctuation, if separate disambiguation pages are not warranted: Bullet Proof redirects to "Bulletproof (disambiguation)".

The rule about linking through a "(disambiguation)" redirect does not apply to redirects to disambiguation pages: Do not create a double redirect, but make a redirect to the disambiguation page directly (thus Bill Cox, a redirect from an alternative name, redirects to the disambiguation page and does not go through the redirect William Cox (disambiguation)). Although it is permissible for this redirect to be made, it generally should not be linked to in an article for the same reasons direct links to disambiguation pages are discouraged.

See Category:Redirects to disambiguation pages.

Visualizing links to disambiguation pagesEdit

Links to disambiguation pages can be displayed in orange in the settings under "Gadgets" by checking "Display links to disambiguation pages in orange". 2405:8D40:B11:10F3:8AD:80BD:ABF6:C201 (talk) 05:53, 17 June 2022 (UTC)

That's enwiki's guidelines. This is the Simple English Wikipedia. We don't have to always follow what they're doing. Don't copy paste guidelines on my talk page without giving context, I couldn't figure out what you were trying to say. — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 05:58, 17 June 2022 (UTC)

Reverting VIPEdit

FYI you don’t have to revert your reports on WP:VIP. The admins do it by clicking on the “clear” button you see on the screen. This way it also doesn’t add to your reversions count either. In my archives there was a post from an admin for me to not do that as well so just wanted to let you know. PotsdamLamb (talk) 08:28, 19 June 2022 (UTC)

@PotsdamLamb thanks for the heads up. — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 08:40, 19 June 2022 (UTC)

hey, why you nominated Jertaker article for deletion? JoseReber (talk) 22:26, 19 June 2022 (UTC)

@JoseReber After reading the article, it appears that the subject is not notable, and does not meet the notability requirements to be included in Wikipedia. Please read the General Notability Guideline for more information about notability. — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 22:28, 19 June 2022 (UTC)

TagsEdit

Hey please do not undue my tags for canvassing, etc. They are there for a reason and they can be repeated as a reminder, especially when the RfA becomes as long as that one. Please reinstate the tags that you removed. I am asking you respectfully to stop reverting my changes, as this is not the first time you have undone my work. Thank you! PotsdamLamb (talk) 22:54, 19 June 2022 (UTC)

@PotsdamLamb that wasn't your tags I removed, they were added to my, your, Rubbish Computer, and IP172's comments by another IP user, which I construe as being done in bad-faith. — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 22:57, 19 June 2022 (UTC)

How to Play GolfEdit

Did you want to expand the article? I put it up for QD and the IP who created it removed the notice and I was doing the revert and got a conflict with your version. If so, that is cool. They are making articles that are just one sentence or even just part of the sentence coming from enWP. PDLTalk to me!OMG, What have I done? 02:39, 21 June 2022 (UTC)

@PotsdamLamb yes, I'm still working on it. I've dealt with them before when they were making large copy and pastes from the English Wikipedia, they will persistently remove any QD tag. Looks like they're now creating low quality articles instead of copy pastes. See Wikipedia:Administrators'_noticeboard#Disney_and_television_copy_pastes. It's a waste of our time to patrol articles like these honestly. — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 02:41, 21 June 2022 (UTC)

Page movesEdit

When you move pages, as you did with the works of multiple classical composers recently, you need to check what is linked to the pages to confirm that there are no double redirects - A redirect pointing to a redirect pointing to a page. They are often created with a page move is a redirect was already pointing to that page since the move creates a new redirect. Special:DoubleRedirects shows all recent double redirects. I just repaired a dozen or so you page moves created. Pure Evil (talk) 20:38, 23 June 2022 (UTC)

@Pure Evil: I thought we had a bot that would eventually take care of those. -- Auntof6 (talk) 22:40, 23 June 2022 (UTC)
@Pure Evil: I'm sorry about that, I should've paid more attention. @Auntof6: Yes, that would be User:Xqbot, though that bot doesn't appear to run that frequently. It wouldn't be terribly difficult to set up a local bot to do this at a higher frequency (daily or twice every day). — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 23:36, 23 June 2022 (UTC)
I don't know if we get many double redirects, so I don't know how often we really need it. -- Auntof6 (talk) 23:38, 23 June 2022 (UTC)

Removing of short description off 1983-85 North American droughtEdit

Was there some reason for removing the short descriptions off that article listed above? We're the short descriptions not needed or too long? Can whoever removed the short description please clarify? Angela Kate Maureen Pears 18:11, 24 June 2022 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Tropical Storm Angela: Short descriptions are not meant to be used here. They are only supported on enwiki. Unless there is another wiki using short descriptions that I am unaware of, every other wiki (apart from enwiki) uses Wikidata for short descriptions. --Ferien (talk) 18:13, 24 June 2022 (UTC)
Indeed, I'm inclined to believe zhwiki's statement: {{SHORTDESC}} 仅在英文维基百科使用 (Shortdesc is only used on the English Wikipedia). Maybe one day we'll use shortdescs for simpler short descriptions, but as they are, the descriptions from Wikidata suffice. — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 10:41, 25 June 2022 (UTC)

YGMEdit

I corrected it because at the end it reads as “you have got mail!” which is not correct. Which is why I changed it so it reads with the correct grammar. Can you kindly go back to my edit please? Thanks, PDLTalk to me!OMG, What have I done? 10:51, 25 June 2022 (UTC)

@PotsdamLamb, your version of the template would've displayed "Hello (username), Please check it at your convenience!". I'm not opposed to rephrasing it, but you did remove the part of the sentence that lets the recipient know that they got an email ("Check your email"). I'm not a native speaker, but isn't "You have got mail" correct? "You've got mail" is the same sentence, but the "have" has been contracted. How about "Hello (username), You've got mail! Please check it at your convenience" ? — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 10:57, 25 June 2022 (UTC)
Actually it did not remove it at all. If you look at the template in the preview window, because it’s calling the page title is why it looked weird. I strictly only changed the last sentence. I would use the sentence you stated but I believe it is copyrighted or patented or something which started when AOL had it then it went to Microsoft whom I believe still has it. That’s why I went with the slightly longer version. PDLTalk to me!OMG, What have I done? 11:09, 25 June 2022 (UTC)
@PotsdamLamb, the wikicode was Hello, {{#titleparts:{{PAGENAME}}|1}}. Please check it at your convenience!. {{#titleparts:{{PAGENAME}}|1}} would be substituted with the name of the page (sans namespace) the template is placed in. In the template's own page, the title of the page would be "You've got mail!", thus the output would be "Hello, You've got mail! Please check it at your convenience". If "You have got mail" part is to be displayed as well, then the code should be Hello, {{#titleparts:{{PAGENAME}}|1}}, you have got mail! Please check it at your convenience!. In the template's own page this will look odd ("Hello, You've got mail!, you have got mail! Please check it at your convenience"), but it will look fine in user talk pages. Here's how it looks here:
Hello, Fehufanga, you have got mail! Please check it at your convenience! — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 11:26, 25 June 2022 (UTC)
 
Hello, Fehufanga. You have new email! Please check it at your convenience.
You can take off this notice at any time by removing the {{You've got mail}} or {{YGM}} template.

CoercionEdit

Hi Fehufanga. Because you gave useful advice about gerunds and relative clauses, I wanted to ask you something else. Looking at coercion, the first sentence seems unsimple to me. In particular, what do you think about the phrase "to get someone to do something"? Is this an idiomatic use of the word "get" that would be difficult for English learners to understand? If so, can you think of a better way to phrase it? Lights and freedom (talk) 05:41, 26 June 2022 (UTC)

@Lights and freedom: At the 8th grade level here, such idiomatic uses should already be taught to some extent. One way I would rephrase is to use the causative make: Coercion is using force or threat to make somebody do something against their will - not doing something is doing something after all. I'm not quite sure how to rephrase that in another way. — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 05:57, 26 June 2022 (UTC)
@Fehufanga Ok, I didn't know, thanks. Lights and freedom (talk) 06:03, 26 June 2022 (UTC)

Hey Fehufanga how are you doing today? Eyetsjued (talk) 16:14, 28 June 2022 (UTC)

Sorry, are you an admin?Edit

Maybe I got it wrong. Are you an admin here? Admins adjudicate QD requests, right? There is a process to use "Wait." If you are an admin, maybe add that to your profile, so it is clear. Thanks --Gotanda (talk) 04:20, 29 June 2022 (UTC)

@Gotanda: Except that's not obvious advertising. It's not saying only good things about the organization or only promoting the organization. Any editor, except the author of the page can remove QDs, especially if it's invalid. If it was tagged A1? Maybe I wouldn't have removed that, but it's definitely not advertising. — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 04:23, 29 June 2022 (UTC)
