Welcome to my talk page. Here are some tips to help you communicate with me:

  • Please continue any conversation on the page where it was started.
    • Thus, if I have left a message on your talk page please DO NOT post a reply here. I will have your talk page on watch and will note when you have replied.
  • Add or respond to an existing conversation under the existing heading.
    • Indent your comment when replying by using an appropriate number of colons ':'.
    • Create a new heading if the original conversation is archived.
  • To initiate a new conversation on this page click on this link.
  • If you are expressing a concern about edits made by RussBot, it is extremely helpful if you include a link to a specific page or, even better, a link to a diff showing the actual edit that the bot made. This makes it much easier to diagnose and correct problems.
  • You should sign your comments. You can do this automatically by typing four tildes (~~~~).

A bowl of strawberries for you!Edit

  I apologize for my silly error, and hope this bowl of strawberries will help to make amends. Thank you for your work reverting vandals, and sorry for confusing you with the original vandal. ~Adjwilley (talk) 04:12, 18 May 2012 (UTC)
Thanks! No harm done. --R'n'B (call me Russ) 10:39, 18 May 2012 (UTC)

Zigomar (comics)Edit

I have recently started ticking away articles from the very end of "Articles With Multiple Dablinks". In principle, the special characters and the Z are done (but new supply is coming often). But I am a bit stuck with Zigomar (comics). That has a link to a disambiguation page in the headnote for a move discussion. I do not know how to fix this, otherwise than shooting down the proposed move what might be a bit rude. Do you have any advice on this? The Banner talk 09:42, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

My advice would be to wait for the move discussion to wrap up. It was only opened five days ago. --R'n'B (call me Russ) 14:53, 14 October 2020 (UTC)
So no bypasses. Yep, then I have to wait. The Banner talk 18:14, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

For entertainment onlyEdit

I repaired the DABlink to Lincoln University in Ina Chan Un Chan, which we'd both struggled with - check the citation... Narky Blert (talk) 09:55, 17 October 2020 (UTC)

It doesn't even seem to be a notable degree mill. I'll buy my well-researched ref for WP:V but not WP:N.
"Philanthropist" is a buzzword which annoys me in WP articles, and categories. There's a major difference between people who give money away for no personal advantage (except possibly in the hereafter), and those who do so for the tax breaks or because it looks good on a celebrity CV.
