Your recent edits[edit]

Hi, there. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. On many keyboards, the tilde is entered by holding the Shift key, and pressing the key with the tilde pictured. You may also click on the signature button Button sig2.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your name and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you! --SineBot 23:05, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

September 2007[edit]

Information.svg Please do not delete content from pages on Wikipedia, as you did to the Interior design and Interior decorating articles. Your edits do not appear to be constructive and have been reverted. Thank you.

Before you delete significant sections of an article (such as deleting sourced content that was in one case supplemented by verifiable references), please discuss the proposed action on the article's talk page to gain a consensus for the proposed changes.

In addition, the statements "The distinction between Interior Design and Interior Decoration is controversial in the United States and not common elsewhere. Attempts to create a distinction between Interior Design and Interior Decoration does not exist in most of the world and non-Americans would be confused by the distinction" that you added to both articles can be read by users as a point of view position that has not been attributed to a specific source. For example, who says or claims that this issue is not controversial elsewhere? Or, non-Americans would be confused by the distinction -- again, who says this and where can this information be found? These statements add ambiguity to the article and implies knowledge of laws and customs in other countries that have not been supported in either or both articles. These statements and others like them require neutral, verifiable third-party sources to support the statements, so that readers of the article can go to these neutral sources to seek more information if desired.

Please see information on Wikipedia about the principles neutral point of view, using sources to support content and attributing those sources with clarity for creating and maintaining articles. Otherwise, the continued deletion of content in this manner might be misconstrued by some editors as vandalizing the article. Lwalt ♦ talk 17:55, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
