Welcome back! Edit

It's good to see those question-marks disappearing.

But have you noticed the renaming bug? See Help:Renaming pages. Maybe it hasn't affected (infected?) you? Your last set of page moves seems to have left an OK page.

  • Yeah, many of my relatives I have worked on I didn't know very much about a few years ago! I have not seen any issues with renaming pages. The moves have gone smoothly. — AMK152 (Talk • Contrib) 18:59, June 7, 2016 (UTC)
(Pardon me for jumping in, but..) you are suffering from the "page move bug", you just haven't noticed it: the problem mainfests in the SMW properties being duplicated. If we look at Carmello Conti (1904-1922), a page you recently moved, and you read the "mini-bio", we see that it starts off "Carmello Conti, Carmello Conti was born 1904, 1904 in Villarosa, Province of Enna, Sicily, Italy, Villarosa, Province of Enna, Sicily, Italy" and stutters on in the same way. If we look at the /tree page Carmello Conti (1904-1922)/tree, we see that it is completely broken. The reason Robin thinks you might be okay is that he doesn't seem to have noticed that I have already fixed Bessie Harrington (1882-1899) for you. Have you moved any other pages? Will you fix them yourself (see the above "Help" link), or do you want me to do it? Thurstan (talk) 22:13, June 7, 2016 (UTC)
Ah, I had seen what looked like AMK's latest move (ten entries in the move log!) and looked to see whether AMK had fixed any himself. Didn't check everybody's fixes! Good work, again, Thurstan! -- Robin Patterson (Talk) 06:34, June 8, 2016 (UTC)
I went back through and it looks like everything is fixed now. — AMK152 (Talk • Contrib) 12:31, June 9, 2016 (UTC)

Tauberscheckenbach Edit

Tauberscheckenbach is now in Bavaria, not Baden-Württemberg, but it's very close to the border. You may want to delve into the history to see whether there have been boundary changes. I'll be showing Bavaria on a couple of "your" pages. -- Robin Patterson (Talk) 00:11, June 9, 2016 (UTC)

Yes, Tauberschenkenbach is Bavaria. It was only within the last year I realized this on my FTM database and fixed it. — AMK152 (Talk • Contrib) 12:51, June 9, 2016 (UTC)
