My edit just now[edit]

Apart from the fact that the Wiktionary links don't work in edit summaries for some reason (MediaWiki bug?), I got the second part wrong; it should read, "in British English, 'resume' only means 'restart' ".

This means that an earlier revert of an edit to the same purpose was in error, since the "justification" that "the author [of this template] chose the spelling 'resume' " is false; the author chose wrongly, as noted above (and in the Wiktionary definition of "résumé"), "resume" has a totally different meaning from "résumé" over here.  (This to my mind is an instance of what I for one call "we-are-the-world syndrome"; the arrogant assumption by too many Americans that American ways are prevalent worldwide, or ought to be.)

Appropriate links?[edit]

Why is "like a resume" linking to WP:COI? Articles can be written that way for example by including a full list with hundreds of publications, which make the article look like, umm..., a resume, but don't necessarily mean they were written by someone with a COI. Also, why is "encyclopedic" linking to WP:BLP, shouldn't it link to WP:NOT? Tijfo098 (talk) 18:41, 10 November 2010 (UTC)

I created the WP:NOTCV link. Tijfo098 (talk) 18:49, 10 November 2010 (UTC)
