Edits to Ernest Hemingway[edit]

Hi, I just wanted you to know that according to the Manual of Style, quotation marks are only placed after the punctuation if the quoted material includes the punctuation. The changes you made to Ernest Hemingway were to quotations that are fragments, and thus correct with the punctuation outside the quotation marks. Thanks. Truthkeeper88 (talk) 15:33, 26 June 2010 (UTC)

Dear Truthkeeper88, thanks for correcting me. I disagree with the Wikipedia Manual of Style regarding placing punctuation sometimes inside sometimes outside of quotation marks, but will adhere to the Wikipedia Manual of Style on future Wikipedia edits/contributions.

Yes, I do too. For Ernest Hemingway to pass featured article candidacy I had to go through the entire article multiple times fixing the punctuation because I always do it wrong. I'll wanted you to know that I wasn't reverting good edits, before making the fixes. Truthkeeper88 (talk) 02:34, 29 June 2010 (UTC)

Never Say Never Again[edit]

Please read WP:BRD. When one of your Bold edits is Reverted, you Discuss, not re-edit. There is nothing wrong with the current wording and it does not need changing. - SchroCat (talk) 23:26, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

hp v PS[edit]

Hello Billy, I saw your edits to the Honda D engine page but reverted them. The reason that the Si's output is in PS is because it is not a North American market model - all of the world (besides the US and UK) use metric horsepower over the non-metric "hp", and this definitely holds true for all JDM cars. The Civic Si referenced in the article is a JDM car and thus its output is in PS. Not elegant, I agree, but at least precise. Cheers,  Mr.choppers | ✎  05:39, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

August 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Dinotefuran may have broken the syntax by modifying 2 "()"s. If you have, don't worry, just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • | IUPACName = 2-methyl-1-nitro-3-[(tetrahydro-3-furanyl) methyl)] guanidine
  • | OtherNames = (''RS'')-1-methyl-2-nitro-3-[(tetrahydro-3-furanyl) methyl)] guanidine; MTI-446
