October 2010[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, adding content without citing a reliable source, as you did with this edit to Algal bloom, is not consistent with our policy of verifiability. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. If you are familiar with Wikipedia:Citing sources, please take this opportunity to add references to the article. JamesBWatson (talk) 19:40, 14 October 2010 (UTC)

Nuvola apps important.svg Please do not add unsourced or original content, as you did to Merry Pranksters. Doing so violates Wikipedia's verifiability policy. If you continue to do so, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. JamesBWatson (talk) 19:49, 14 October 2010 (UTC)

In case "Perpetual War Memorial" is deleted[edit]

Hello, MajorVariola! You and I have met at the page Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Perpetual war memorial. You haven't posted there lately, so I wanted to explain a suggestion I made there. I suggested that rather than outright deletion, they should "userfy" the article to you, which means saving it to your personal pages here. It will then not be in the Wikipedia "mainspace" as an encyclopedia article, but it will be available to you. The reason I suggested this is that I don't want you to lose the research you did, when you looked up all those different Iraq war memorials around the country and cited references for them. I would encourage you to use that information to create a new article called "Iraq War memorials" or "Iraq/Afghanistan war memorials" or something like that. The only problem I had with the existing article was its focus on the idea of a "perpetual war memorial" as one created while the war was still going on. But if you eliminate that unproven definition, and instead focus on the memorials to the Iraq and Afghanistan wars which is what I think you meant, you could very well come up with a useful Wikipedia article. If you decide to do this, put a note on the talk page User talk:Sandstein asking for the page to be userfied to you. I would be glad to help you with the new article. --MelanieN (talk) 15:43, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

June 2011[edit]

Thank you for your contributions. Please remember to mark your edits as "minor" only if they truly are minor edits. In accordance with Help:Minor edit, a minor edit is one that the editor believes requires no review and could never be the subject of a dispute. Minor edits consist of things such as typographical corrections, formatting changes, or rearrangement of text without modification of content. Additionally, the reversion of clear-cut vandalism and test edits may be labeled "minor". Thank you. --John (talk) 03:58, 14 June 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for June 8[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Gunpowder, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Shrapnel (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.
