February 2010[edit]

Information.svg In a recent edit to the page Roundabout, you changed one or more words from one international 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 subjects exclusively related to Britain (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 other English-speaking countries, such as Canada, Australia, or New Zealand, use the appropriate variety of English used there. If it is an international topic, use the same form of English the original author used.

In view of that, please don't change articles from one version of English to the other, even if you don't normally use the version the article is written in. 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 Wikipedia:Manual of Style. If you have any queries about all this, you can ask me on my talk page or you can visit the help desk. Thank you. Jeni (talk) 09:35, 4 February 2010 (UTC)

August 2010[edit]

Information.svg Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. When you make a change to an article, please provide an edit summary, which you forgot to do before saving your recent edit to Arsenal Technical High School. Doing so helps everyone to understand the intention of your edit. It is also helpful to users reading the edit history of the page. Thank you. Trafford09 (talk) 18:23, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

List of largest empires[edit]

Hi there. We're having a content dispute at the article above - the list of empires has a large 216 entries, and currently the article sees fit to repeat this list 6 times! Clearly a waste of storage and bandwidth. A better solution (saving at least 30% and making it much easier to read and use) would be a table with a column for each attribute, sortable, as used in many other articles (see the discussion). However, a silent editor keeps reverting attempts to clean up the article, without explanation. Please see the discussion (currently nobody disagrees). Your comments would be welcome. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.141.18.207 (talk) 21:21, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

Arsenal Tech History[edit]

Dear Jherbertz,

We need to work together regarding Tech's history, especially in light of the recent information you have entered regarding the campus buildings. In particular, you describe "The two gymnasiums created in the 1970s". The West Gym (renamed the Reuben D. Behlmer Gymnasium) was buit in 1928, I believe (the exact year should be looked up), and remodeled in the 1970s (after 1972 when I graduated).

Having been born in 1954 to parents in the Alumni Assoc. since 1931, having been taken to Tech and Alumni events and having heard stories of Tech since birth, I have much built-in knowledge of Tech history.

Let's work together!

Sincerely, ArsenalTechKB (talk) 22:38, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

P.S., I really like the format and much of the content of User:Jherbertz/Arsenal Technical High School draft, but I do feel that we need to tweak it a lot in terms of detail and form (builing names and the like). I like it much more than the way you recently entered the building info on the main page.

I'm glad that in User:Jherbertz/Arsenal Technical High School draft you gave "each" building its own header. For a long time now, I have been thinking about doing the same and incliding a picture of each building. Also, I was thinking that much could be said about the building in its header in an obvious and abbreviated manner such as:

Gaylord Allen Hall - The Barn, 1869-Present (original arsenal building)

William F. Moon Hall - The Cafeteria-Music Building, 1965-Present

Disambiguation link notification for January 6[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Contrabass trumpet, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Mouthpiece (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Your Blue Devils edit[edit]

In referring to a drum and bugle corps, the term "junior" is not an adjective, it is a classification. Drum and bugle corps are either junior (with all members being under 22 years of age) or senior/all-age (with no upper age limit). Thus, ALL articles on drum and bugle corps refer (or should) to the corps as either a junior corps or as a senior or all-age corps. GWFrog (talk) 15:27, 12 August 2014 (UTC)
