How could you not fail to sense the lols in the Canada troll?
Hi, Eurodyne. Thanks for the disambiguating you've been doing. I noticed that you disambiguated quite a few links to point to Wiktionary.https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:Watchlist Please try not to do that. In many cases, the better way to deal with those is to reword the sentence. For example, in Hair iron, there was the phrase "less damage and dryness than the earlier methods", and you changed the link to point to Wiktionary. A better way to handle that would be to change it to "less damage and dryness than the way things were done before". Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 06:56, 23 April 2016 (UTC)
- My apologies. Would removing the links work as well? I tried to preserve the links by linking them to Wiktionary, but it seems like I have done more bad than good. Thanks for the heads up. eurodyne (talk) 15:04, 23 April 2016 (UTC)
- Thanks. The other issue is that if we ever got an article here that we could link to, we'd probably never find all the Wiktionary links so we could change them. Just unlinking would resolve the disambiguation, but not all these links have to be resolved right away. In some cases, that would leave a complex word, which may or may not be better. Sometimes the best thing to do is leave the link to the dab page, as much as we might not like that. --Auntof6 (talk) 17:29, 23 April 2016 (UTC)
Are you interested in being an admin?
- As of right now, no. I haven't been the most active around here, I'm currently focusing on other Wikimedia projects. I appreciate your kind words! eurodyne (talk) 17:04, 12 June 2016 (UTC)
- Sorry that I can't reply to you on IRC; it's late over here, and the computer which has IRC access has already been turned off. Chenzw Talk 17:25, 28 June 2016 (UTC)
