Hello, and welcome to Ckatz's user page. I've been an editor on Wikipedia since January of 2006, and an administrator since February of 2008. Much of my work here involves proofreading, revising and updating pages as I find them, removing vandalism, and other such tasks. I'm particularly interested in articles relating to astronomy, science fiction, television, and Canadian issues. If you have any comments on my edits, or any questions about Wikipedia in general, please leave a note on my talk page. I'll try to respond as best I can. Thanks.
Typically, links are removed because they fail the external links guideline. Although many links are deleted because they were placed by spammers, links to good sites are also removed on a regular basis. This is because Wikipedia isn't a directory service; the mere fact a site exists does not mean it warrants a link.
Why was my article deleted?
Pages can be deleted for many reasons; there are very specific criteria that govern the process. Please review this article for more information.
Why was information relating to my company or organization removed?
Wikipedia's Manual of Style recommends the use of regional varieties of English, based on the topic and the article's contribution history. Please avoid changing spellings unless they differ from the appropriate version. Most spell checking software can be configured to use British and American English; some extend this to include other varieties such as Canadian or Australian English.
For your continued diligence and hard work towards Greater Vancouver-related articles. :) -→Buchanan-Hermit™/?! 03:54, 11 June 2006 (UTC)

Often, you'll be editing an article and will need to make a link to a plural. For example, suppose you wanted to link "Fred Foo was famous for his study of puddles" to puddle, you could link it like so: [[puddle|puddles]]. However, you can save time instead by writing [[puddle]]s. This does not confine itself to plurals, but also works with adjectives (for example, [[Japan]]ese), regular verbs in present or past tense (for example, [[dance]]s or [[dance]]d) and any other suffixes or prefixes. It does not, however, work for some irregular verbs ([[try]]ied does not work; you have to enter [[try|tried]]).
