Big O

edit

Notcharliechaplin (talk · contribs) has reverted three times the removal of a piped link to a page that does not mention the dab title on Big O (disambiguation). Additional opinions from editors familiar with our disambiguation guidelines would be helpful. —David Eppstein (talk) 21:45, 22 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

Name of DAB for Ballantyne

edit

I think that Ballantyne needs to have a DAB and separate name page... should the current one become a surname page and the others go into a new DAB called Ballantyne (disambiguation), or the names go into a surname page titled Ballantyne (name)/(surname)? Laterthanyouthink (talk) 09:13, 29 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

Generally, I dont think standalone name pages meet WP:PRIMARYTOPIC. —Bagumba (talk) 09:33, 29 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
Thanks Bagumba. So do you mean make Ballantyne the DAB, and create Ballantyne (name) as a set index page? Laterthanyouthink (talk) 02:45, 30 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
@Laterthanyouthink: Per WP:APOTITLE, make it Ballantyne (surname). Regards. —Bagumba (talk) 07:55, 30 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
Thank you. Done (although it took me twice as long as it should because I managed to wipe out basically the whole article part after completion, by mistake!). Laterthanyouthink (talk) 02:29, 1 July 2024 (UTC)Reply

Hi folks- I don't know if this is the right place for this, but I got great help here for my previous query on the St Sophia stuff, so I figured I'd try again (I'm not quite sure of the distinction between this talk page and Wikipedia talk:Disambiguation).

京 is the Han character meaning "capital", and is also a disambiguation page, , since the character shows up in a number of city names. In the "See Also" at the bottom, there are a few further related topics. One of these links is to 西京, which is itself a redirect to the disambiguation page Western Capital. Right now, the link shows up as a "bad" link to a disambiguation page.

The usual way to make it clear that something is an intentional dab link is to append a "(disambiguation)" to it. However, since 西京 is a redirect, not a disambiguation page in itself, that would not seem to work? (or at least the new redirect 西京 (disambiguation) would need to be created). I guess that we could just link Western Capital (disambiguation) directly, but I like the symmetry of linking the characters (as in 東京 (disambiguation), another entry in the see also), to make it clear why it is being listed. The characters could be listed after the link, though? Or is this a case that could be an exception to piping links on a dab page?

Thanks for any assistance/contributions! Cleancutkid (talk) 22:47, 6 July 2024 (UTC)Reply

Just make the redirect 西京 (disambiguation). —swpbT • beyond • mutual 14:38, 8 July 2024 (UTC)Reply
  Done. Cheers! BD2412 T 15:50, 8 July 2024 (UTC)Reply
Thanks @BD2412, @swpb - that felt like the best approach to me, but I'm still new enough to this that I wanted to double-check. Cleancutkid (talk) 18:02, 11 July 2024 (UTC)Reply

A question about music single titles

edit

Hi, everyone. Am I wrong here? Because consistency wise for songs released as singles, every other DAB page I've looked at lists the release year of the single, and not the associated album. QuestFour (talk) 07:27, 10 July 2024 (UTC)Reply

QuestFour, this is probably not the best venue for questions about titles of music singles. Have you tried WT:WikiProject Music? I'm sure they can help. Mathglot (talk) 03:25, 11 July 2024 (UTC)Reply

Creating a primary disambiguation page for Hey, Rookie

edit

There is a page for the film Hey, Rookie however even tho mentioned on that page that the film was based on a WW2 GI stage review, there is no page for the original Hey, Rookie show, (most often referred to as just Hey Rookie due to its most prominent continued usage being as a adjectival phrase for the name of the swimming pool in San Pedro the cast financed). I am an interested party in that my father was one of the stars of the show. I came upon this issue when I discovered that someone had made a page for him where I wanted to add a Hey, Rookie reference given that it was his first acting experience which lead him to an acting career.

Hey Rookie had a unique and fascinating history, and given that its success resulted in the later film production, I believe that: Hey, Rookie (stage play) should be created and be the primary disambiguation page with the film's page renamed: Hey, Rookie (film). My family donated all the press and material my father collected about the show to the Fort MacArthur Museum's archive which has displays and some unpublished monographs on the subject.

I plan to create a Hey, Rookie (stage play) page When I gain access to the references in a way that I can properly cite and would like some direction on how to manage this disambiguation process.Nesdon (talk) 17:05, 22 July 2024 (UTC)Reply

The first thing to do is to write the article (Hey Rookie (play) may be the better title but I'm not familiar with the naming conventions in that topic area and Hey Rookie (stage play) isn't wrong). Once that's done you can create Hey Rookie (disambiguation) and request that it be moved to the base title. Thryduulf (talk) 17:18, 22 July 2024 (UTC)Reply
