August 2013[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Razorflame. I wanted to let you know that I undid one of your recent contributions, such as the one you made with this edit to NZP, 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. Razorflame 23:25, 3 August 2013 (UTC)

Information icon Hello, I'm Peter Brown. It is not constructive to introduce piped links in order to avoid redirects, as you did in your edit to Sand Hill Road, replacing [[dotcom boom]] with [[Dot-com bubble|dot-com boom]]. Please read WP:NOTBROKEN for an explanation. If you thought it essential to introduce a hyphen, coding [[dot-com boom]] would have conformed to the guideline. Thanks, Peter Brown (talk) 21:09, 9 August 2013 (UTC)

Information.svg Hello, and thank you for your recent contributions. While the content of your edit may be true, I have removed it because its depth or nature of detail are not consistent with our objectives as an encyclopedia. I recognize that your edit was made in good faith and hope you will familiarize yourself with what Wikipedia is not so we may collaborate in the future. Thank you!

I have restored your edit, though I subsequently made a slight change in the wording. The criticism above is unacceptably vague. WP:NOT seems irrelevant. A reader who has heard of the Jefferson County bankruptcy and wants to learn more about it will welcome the clarification. Peter Brown (talk) 15:52, 10 August 2013 (UTC)

September 2013[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm In Transit. Wikipedia is written by people who have a wide diversity of opinions, but we try hard to make sure articles have a neutral point of view. Your recent edit to Jaipur Engineering College seemed less than neutral to me, so I removed it for now. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. Martinian Leave a message! 17:16, 26 September 2013 (UTC)

Bypassing redirects[edit]

Hello, there's no need to fix redirects that aren't broken, as you did at Civil engineering. Undoing your edits would be even sillier, so I won't do that, but the edits you're making aren't necessary. Graham87 03:07, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

Also, winding-up and liquidation are not quite the same thing: linking to the former term was often intentional. --Redrose64 (talk) 10:25, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

October 2013[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Kirachinmoku. I wanted to let you know that I undid one of your recent contributions, such as the one you made with this edit to Market trend, 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. KiraChinmoku 19:38, 10 October 2013 (UTC)

Information icon In a recent edit, you changed one or more words or styles from one national variety of English to another. Because Wikipedia has readers from all over the world, our policy is to respect national varieties of English in Wikipedia articles.

For a subject exclusively related to the United Kingdom (for example, a famous British person), use British English. For something related to the United States in the same way, use American English. For something related to another English-speaking country, such as Canada, Australia, or New Zealand, use the variety of English used there. For an international topic, use the form of English that the original author used.

In view of that, please don't change articles from one version of English to another, even if you don't normally use the version in which the article is written. Respect other people's versions of English. They, in turn, should respect yours. Other general guidelines on how Wikipedia articles are written can be found in the Manual of Style. If you have any questions about this, you can ask me on my talk page or visit the help desk. Thank you. Jim1138 (talk) 00:10, 11 October 2013 (UTC)

Do not "fix" links to redirects that are not broken[edit]

Please read WP:NOTBROKEN and stop "fixing" links to redirects that are not broken, as you did here, here, here, here, here, and hundreds of other places. I noticed that you have been warned about this before but have not stopped. Please stop now. Continuing to edit disruptively may result in your being blocked from editing. --Guy Macon (talk) 07:43, 22 October 2013 (UTC)
