Combinatorial Theory (journal) Edit

Which GNG coverage? None of the sources are independent. And zlb and mr are not really very selective, but rather inclusive. At best, this is TOOSOON. --Randykitty (talk) 21:40, 29 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Use of the guideline Wikipedia:Point Edit

I noticed that you reference Wikipedia:Do not disrupt Wikipedia to illustrate a point quite often in discussions. However I just wish you were more a bit clear with how an action constitutes disruption to Wikipedia when you cite that guideline and what point the referent is trying to make with their actions. I think your comments will sound friendlier this way. Cheers, Ca talk to me! 03:51, 30 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Just to be clear, I don't think you are doing this in bad faith. Others were quite incivil with you in NJOURNAL discussions and whatnot, and I can see myself saying something akin to this too. Ca talk to me! 11:59, 31 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Format Edit

I've changed your edit to [1]. I'm not sure if that is preferred. If you switch it back, however, the colon is preferred. Iterresise (talk) 08:21, 13 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

If you want to add a colon, by all means do so, but that's not a reason to remove entries from a dab page. I have reverted your removals. These are highly inappropriate. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 09:45, 13 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
What was inappropriate about this? The article doesn't exist. Iterresise (talk) 02:46, 14 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
And this? No article exists. It's a red link. Iterresise (talk) 02:47, 14 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
For the first, that the article doesn't exist doesn't matter. It's a notable journal, and there is a possibility of confusion with the other journals, and so it should be mentioned. For the second, you can simply unlink the redlink since there's information in Union of Communist Students about the JCR of that line.

Red links lend people to believe that the article is not notable. I prefer to see articles written before they are linked. Iterresise (talk) 00:41, 15 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Iterresise But Wikipedia prefers there to be a red link, to encourage future writing of articles and provide the link instantly when the article is created. PamD 06:12, 15 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Iterresise, +1 to what PamD said. --Rosiestep (talk) 06:40, 15 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
My concern is that some articles will never be notable. Iterresise (talk) 09:16, 15 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

By the way MOS:DABINTRO states that the colon needs to be included. Iterresise (talk) 06:44, 30 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply] Edit

Respectable? Bon courage (talk) 04:11, 16 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It's, as far as I can tell, a mostly unmaintained mirror of Beall's original list. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 07:25, 16 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Seems to have been quite a bit of activity recently.[2] And MDPI seem very upset with them.[3] Bon courage (talk) 07:38, 16 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
