'bout some dem redirects

So I've noticed you've been going around adding redirects to articles, that's fine, but I'd ask you to be a little more careful in what you make a redirect and what you make a disambiguation. On three separate occasions today (Conscience, Sallet helmet and Bauble) you've created a redirect where a disambiguation would be more appropriate. I've fixed this now, but please be more careful when creating redirects in future. Thanks, -Mr. Magoolachub 02:10, 13 January 2012 (PST)

Oops, you're right. Been too enthusiastic about those redirects. Tabs 02:12, 13 January 2012 (PST)


Please only create redirects that users are likely to type into the search box or are useful in some way. Nobody will ever type out Dispense-O-Matic 9000 Provisions Dispenser or Sentry mechanical firing device instead of Dispenser or Sentry, for instance. i-ghost 03:59, 13 January 2012 (PST)

Oh. I have, just to see if they redirect, and someone else had redirected Uhlman Build-Matic Wrench to Wrench so I thought it was okay. Tabs 04:02, 13 January 2012 (PST)
Please stop making mixed case and/or acronymic redirects; they are useless at best. A reader is more likely to search for a part of a word rather than use acronyms as they would have no idea the acronym redirect would have existed anyway, and they are never going to be inserted into pages. Thanks. i-ghost 08:08, 25 January 2012 (PST)
Consider this your third (or more maybe) and final warning, your redundant redirects have now caused me to delete a page due to it being entirely case insensitive (referring to That '70s Chapeau). I have deleted both. -- Lagg Backpack Stickybomb Launcher.png 15:40, 16 November 2012 (PST)


Thanks for fixing those mistakes in PDA of mine. Editing at 1 in the morning can produce some wacky results.Atonement 14:58, 4 March 2012 (PST)


I'm glad for all the work you're doing on the redirects, but it would be great if you could tag them with the minor edit label. Darkid (Talk | contribs) 06:30, 7 March 2012 (PST)

Sorry, I'll remember that. Tabs 20:18, 7 March 2012 (PST)


Hey, I noticed you've been doing a lot of edit on the disambiguation pages and there are a few things I'd like to point out... First the items are ordered in release date and not alphabetical order, like on the Fedora page, you alphabetize only if two items are released at the same date.
I don't understand why on disambiguations like this you replaced the link to the weapons page to the class page, when the class page is already link with the class name, 3 words later ? If you want to be more precise why not link to Weapons#heavysecondary instead of Heavy#Secondary ? It links 2 pages and just shows all the secondary weapons for the Heavy what is to be expected if you click on "secondary weapon" in my mind.

Oh. Someone had alphabetized some of the disambigs, so I assumed that was the norm. And I'll link to the weapons page from now on. Tabs 10:43, 9 March 2012 (PST)
Thanks ! If you see someone alphabetizing those pages, please tell him we keep a release date order. :) Tturbo Killicon ambassadorhs unused.png (Speech voice.png / Intel neutral pickedup.png) 12:12, 9 March 2012 (PST)
I knew you would come through for me tabs, atta boy! Nocturne 20:27, 11 March 2012 (PDT)
Aww. :) Tabs 20:29, 11 March 2012 (PDT)


I see that you have made some changes in the zh-hant pages, most of them are small changes. However I can tell that you are probably not a native speaker of Chinese, so I have to confirm that you are able to read, or write the Chinese words without difficulty. Please give me a reply about the zh-hant contribution or changes you want to make in the future, and your ability to understand Chinese so that I can have a better thought about what you are going to do, or any suggestion that I can give you. Thanks. ~www~ 07:26, 2 April 2012 (PDT)

RE: Nah, I just want to be sure that every translators can understand Chinese before editing. My translate partners and I had an experience that someone (not you) used Google Translation to translated the zh-hant pages, and it was annoying. After that incident I thought that I need to check and stop the one who doesn't understand Chinese want to make the place a mess. Your edits are good fix to several pages, and it's not troublesome at all. My partner and I are not offended, so you can do the edits in zh-hant whenever you see any place need to be improved, and make zh-hant become better : ) ~www~ 09:56, 2 April 2012 (PDT)
ps. It's always nice to put something interesting in your own User page by yourself.

Re: Main Page

It's okay, I later knew you misunderstood my intention.. never mind =)

Disambiguation pages

So I'm questioning some of your edits to the disambiguation pages. I admin that release date has some merit for sorting, but the average person who uses one of these pages is not going to care what the release date is, and will want an alphabetized listing, which makes sense. I'd ask that, as per things like the painted hats listing, keep disambiguation pages in alphabetical order. Darkid (Talk | contribs) 16:35, 18 May 2012 (PDT)

Alphabetical order may look neater, but I think a person looking for an item might, for example, search for "shoes" with "those new shoes for the Spy" in mind. Anyway, TTurbo dictates that items on disambiguation pages be in release date order. :) Tabs 21:17, 18 May 2012 (PDT)


Thx for the help on the kong king links, its really helpful :D
