United States Pacific Fleet[edit]

While your contributions to this article is appreciated, your edit is not correct. Husband E. Kimmel was a four-star admiral when he was serving as Commander-in-chief, U.S. Pacific Fleet before the attack on Pearl Harbor. You may or may not know, three and four-star ranks are only temporary ranks and go hand-in-hand with the positions the ranks are linked to. It was because of the attack and his disregard to warnings prior to the attack that got him removed from office. Like I mentioned before, the rank of a four-star is temporary and linked to his assignment as Commander-in-chief, U.S. Pacific Fleet. Since he no longer occupied a four-star assignment/position, and he was not given another four-star assignment, he was demoted, or the more correct term reverted, back to his permanent two-star rank of rear admiral and subsequently retired as a two-star.

My changes[edit]

"the World War 2" is not English. Beyond that, we have no evidence whatever that September 1939 is a characteristically Western notion, or Eurocentric; it is the view of about 95% of the sources in English, and by WP:V we should assert it, and no other date. (We should mention that other opinions exist, and we do.) Details may be found on Talk:World War II, which indeed consists now of little else. You left the choice of tagging your version and continuing on the negotiation of the single sentence now in dispute; I chose not to tag it as unsourced, unsupported, inaccurate, and unEnglish, but to propose a novel form. Septentrionalis PMAnderson 15:34, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

World War 2 is merely substandard; the World War 2 is illiterate. Septentrionalis PMAnderson 15:42, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

The beginning of the article now says, and I cut and paste:

World War II, or the World War 2[dubious ] and the Second World War,

I reserve the right to ignore any further messages of this kind. Septentrionalis PMAnderson 15:56, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

Mexican Americn Article[edit]

Your ignorant comments have no importance in our article. Mexicans have a European hertitage as well as Amerindian. Mexican Americans form the largest group of White Hispanics in the U.S. and the Mexican American group contains one of the largest segments of White Americans. Please do not change photos without first seeing the talk page. Cali567 (talk) 21:28, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

Mexicans are a mixture of different groups of people. The Mexican constitution states that it is a tricultural country: Amerindian, European, and a mixture of both, Mestizo. Most Mexicans and Mexican Americans have European forefathers as well. "Brown" means nothing. Europeans are not all Nordic... You have no sources for your comments. There are sources for ours.

computer software[edit]

I changed a few words in computer software from "shouldn't be sold for a money" to "should be sold for money"[1].

Is this something that needs to be discussed on Talk:Computer software ? -- (talk) 14:48, 8 October 2008 (UTC)

Toyota article[edit]

Sorry I had to revert some of your edits. You had made a total of fifteen edits to the Toyota article when I looked at it. Many of the edits were fine. Unfortunately some were not. The only way I could simply fix the ones that were problematic was to revert them all. I've since restored some of your edits. However, the references to the Toyota site were not adequate as citations. Sources have to support exactly what is said in the article. Those two did not provide the information that is in the article. Now I know someone could sort through the Toyota site and find the information. However, that is not what a citation is for. Otherwise, your edits were mostly pretty good. There were a few minor grammatical errors, but those are now corrected. For example "Head Office" was better than "headquarters office" (a headquarters is an office).

Since you seem to be a serious editor, perhaps you could read up on sourcing. It really is a useful skill and you have the ability to be very good at it. The other thing I was wondering was why you don't take a user name and join us. There are some advantages. Whatever you decide on that score, good luck with your editing, and once again, apologies for my heavy hand. Sunray (talk) 08:27, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
