Invite to contributeEdit

Hello! I have currently started a discussion on member sections over at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Musicians#Create_Member_Section.2FTimeline_Standards, and I was wondering if you were interested in contributing and willing to help get more people to voice their opinion on the matter? Have a great day/night! Thanks! 75Indians75 (talk) 02:47, 8 November 2015 (UTC)

Yes I am very interested in contributing! Thanks for the heads up. Attempts at this have been made before unsuccessfully, but I would love if we could finally reach a consensus. – DLManiac (talk) 21:18, 8 November 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for November 12Edit

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Def Leppard, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Ian Hunter. 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.

The Story So Far – The Best Of moved to draftspaceEdit

An article you recently created, The Story So Far – The Best Of, does not have enough sources and citations as written to remain published. It needs more citations from reliable, independent sources. (?) Information that can't be referenced should be removed (verifiability is of central importance on Wikipedia). I've moved your draft to draftspace (with a prefix of "Draft:" before the article title) where you can incubate the article with minimal disruption. When you feel the article meets Wikipedia's general notability guideline and thus is ready for mainspace, please click on the "Submit your draft for review!" button at the top of the page.

Merging templates of the WDF with the BDOEdit

Hello can you explain why your merged the templates of the world governing body of Darts the World Darts Federation with a national governing body of darts the British Darts Organisation. National federations have the same objectives as an international federation, but within one country example Great Britain who are just members of the world body. For example the United States Tennis Association is the national body of tennis for the United States which is a member of the International Tennis Federation the world governing body. I accept you were trying to streamline the template but it is not correct to merge the two because there over 80 other national bodies that also have their own locally ranked tournaments.--Navops47 (talk) 03:58, 8 March 2019 (UTC)

Just letting you know in relation to merging information regarding world and national governing bodies of sport together per WP Project Sports guidelines I have raised this at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Sports.--Navops47 (talk) 04:22, 8 March 2019 (UTC)
I see where your coming from but I think that does not apply here. The point of navigation boxes is navigation between articles. 2 navigation boxes that have 90% overlap do not achieve that goal. The BDO and WDF deserve to remain separate and have separate pages, but that does not mean that they’re navboxes should be distinct. And I believe it is kept clear in the template which ones are not part of both organizations. DLManiac (talk) 06:52, 8 March 2019 (UTC)
An additional point to make, is that the BDO ranks various international tournaments, and not just ones in Britain. That is the reason for much of the overlap.DLManiac (talk) 22:46, 8 March 2019 (UTC)

Classic Aerosmith: The Universal Masters CollectionEdit

Thanks for double checking that release date. As it's a European release, I think Tuesday December 5, 2000 is an import date for the USA. I have many November 2000 dates in Europe for that release, the first of which is the 2nd of November for Denmark. I'm going to change the date to Nov. 2, 2000, as that is the first release date I can find. If you have any different info, please let me know.PPAACCMAN4 (talk) 04:23, 10 May 2019 (UTC)

Google Code-In 2019 is coming - please mentor some documentation tasks!Edit

Hello,

Google Code-In, Google-organized contest in which the Wikimedia Foundation participates, starts in a few weeks. This contest is about taking high school students into the world of opensource. I'm sending you this message because you recently edited a documentation page at the English Wikipedia.

I would like to ask you to take part in Google Code-In as a mentor. That would mean to prepare at least one task (it can be documentation related, or something else - the other categories are Code, Design, Quality Assurance and Outreach) for the participants, and help the student to complete it. Please sign up at the contest page and send us your Google account address to google-code-in-admins@lists.wikimedia.org, so we can invite you in!

From my own experience, Google Code-In can be fun, you can make several new friends, attract new people to your wiki and make them part of your community.

If you have any questions, please let us know at google-code-in-admins@lists.wikimedia.org.

Thank you!
