August 2011[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia, and thank you for your contributions. One of the core policies of Wikipedia is that articles should always be written from a neutral point of view. A contribution you made to Calbert Cheaney appears to carry a non-neutral point of view, and your edit may have been changed or reverted to correct the problem. Please remember to observe this important core policy. Thank you. Wikipelli Talk 14:17, 19 August 2011 (UTC)

August 2012[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Please do not replace pages with blank content, as you did with this edit to PM Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (WIN-T), as this is confusing to readers. The page's content has been restored for now. If there is a problem with the page, it should be edited or reverted to a previous version if possible; if you think the page should be removed entirely, see further information. Thank you.

Out of line comment?[edit]

My advice to simply scrap the drive of the computer is borne out of a long history in computing and I believe is the correct response. If they haven't used the stuff in ages and copiesd everything over they thought useful before then they are losing part of their life by persisting with the old computer and should be advised of that. Even if they succeed it will be simply to waste spacew keeping something they won't look at and of minimal value compared to the costs. Dmcq (talk) 14:36, 18 March 2013 (UTC)

(ec)You may not remove other users' edits from talk pages or other discussions as you did in this edit. Disagreeing with others or feeling their reply isn't appropriate isn't remotely sufficient cause for doing so. By all means reply to the comment, or discuss the matter with the user in question or on the relevant talk page. But simply removing that comment was, bluntly, vandalism; if you repeat that, I'll block you from editing Wikipedia. -- Finlay McWalterTalk 14:39, 18 March 2013 (UTC)

Hello, I'm Josve05a. I wanted to let you know that I undid one of your recent contributions, such as the one you made with this edit to Mike Rice Jr., because it didn’t appear constructive to me. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks, Josve05a (talk) 20:00, 2 April 2013 (UTC)

EM Space[edit]

This is just my curiosity, but why are you using EM-SPACE (%E2%80%83)? It looks incredibly strange when reading Wikipedia/the Refdesk, even more-so than the non-breaking space (U+00A0) when trying to force doublespacing after a period. Again, just my curiosity. Thanks! -- 143.85.199.242 (talk) 15:45, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

Em spaces are what “doublespacing” is meant to emulate. Briefly, I am not a fan of the simplest traditions being butchered despite the technological era we occupy. I prefer separating sentences with em spaces both for traditional reasons (because we did, and if people who cared about conventions existed/made typewriters then, would probably all still), as well as functional reasons (like the original reason [to more easily distinguish between sentence starts and ends] and even new [programmatic distinction]). I also try to use real apostrophes and real quotation marks, and as soon as I get around to it, dollar signs with two vertical lines instead of just one (I s’pose specifying a particular popular font face that used two would suffice). ¦ Reisio (talk) 19:55, 15 April 2013 (UTC)
