Archie McKellar[edit]

Hi - I'm sorry if in my inexperience of editing I've caused friction between yourself and user:David Underdown. He obviously meant his reference to the “talk” page to mean the Archie McKellar page and not the Runnymede one. I've amended my contribution to talk:Archie McKellar to include a link to the Air Forces Memorial page in the light of your remarks about helping the less experienced. Regards, and thanks for your welcome on my talk page.--Mabzilla (talk) 13:39, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

Hey, don't worry - no friction, just a question of clarity. He's a good editor and contributor, and this "remote" format of communication creates those "opportunities." As it says in the rules here, Assume Good Faith - lots of squabbles and disputes here are often down to a misunderstanding in communication because of the narrow tendencies of this format. Look after yourself! Rgds, - Trident13 (talk) 04:46, 20 January 2008 (UTC)

Hornblower Talk Page[edit]

Hi there, I just happened to revisit the Hornblower (TV series) talk page this morning and I saw your comment "If I agree with "152.23.196.162" that the writing for the "Hornblower" TV Movies was poor (unlike C.S. Forester's superb original work (my opinion)), will he withdraw the unpleasant remark about "mind rotting" UK television, comic books and books for young adults?" I was '152.23.196.162' before I registered, but I didn't make the comment. I've made a post on the talk page to that effect. I realize you made that post in November of last year, but I just found it and figured I'd lay the issue to rest; take a gander at the talk page and you'll see what I mean. Have a good day. =) Panzer V Panther (talk) 09:28, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

And thanks for adding that note on the Young Hornblower books. =) Panzer V Panther (talk) 20:37, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

RE: Q about apostrophes[edit]

See Wikipedia:MOS#Possessives. Either style is permitted, and as the article is already in one style, it is silly to attempt to change it to the other. --Izno (talk) 14:48, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

Edit[edit]

Everyone makes mistakes. I didn't take it seriously. Thanks for the comment. Best wishes -- Raziman T V (talk) 11:07, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

"Catcott Burtle station"[edit]

Thanks for letting me know - I'm not sure if the bit about the station was my doing, but I've revised it now. I can't access the RM web site - but I'm glad it gave them a chuckle. Perhaps you could point out that one of the great advantages of wikipedia is that if people spot errors they can correct them.— Rod talk 17:18, 27 January 2011 (UTC)

Wells's[edit]

I've noticed in the article history that you've repeatedly changed the possessive form of Wells from " Wells' " to " Wells's " in the H. G. Wells article. Do you also write the possessive plural of " boys " as " boys's " -- pronounced "boyses"? In your editing comment you justified the last edit as "established form". Established by whom? In which part of the world is English spoken and written in this manner? — QuicksilverT @ 22:57, 21 October 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for November 13[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Edward III of England, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page King John (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
