On 3 Sept you added to blues the following:

Other influences on rock and roll are often cited, especially country music and R&B. It is more accurate to say, however, from a musical perspective, that artists in these musical subgroups adapted blues structure and harmony to their distinctive styles, accents, and vocabularies.

Another editor has not understood what you meant and has changed it to:

Other influences of the blues are often cited, especially country music and R&B. It is more accurate to say, however, from a musical perspective, that artists in these musical subgroups adapted blues structure and harmony to their distinctive styles, accents, and vocabularies.

Perhaps you would like to reword it to reinstate your intended meaning but making the paragraph easier to understand. cheers. Nurg 05:50, 26 November 2005 (UTC)


Thanks for your additions to the Dachshund articles. Could you identify the source(s) for the statements about the popularity of the breed in the U.S. and in NYC specifically so that we can have a "Reference" section listing the source? Thanks. Elf | Talk 16:46, 19 February 2006 (UTC)

Tip of the day project update[edit]

Just trying to get things better organized around there. Toward that end, I've created a task list template for the project. If all the contributors to the project placed it on their user page, we could all keep in touch more easily (with announcements, alerts, etc.). It, and the latest announcements can be found at:

I'm sorry you're feeling a bit offended, but you shouldn't get too frustrated at it. Yes, I basically just cut out all your work, but this is Wikipedia. Anything you type in can be changed or removed. Also, just because it's valid info, does not mean it should go in that particular section. While reading it, I interpreted the description as an variety that belongs to a very specific region. There are probably hundreds of varieties of oranges out there, and we can't list everything. Giving a small list of the most common varieties seen throughout the world is the starting point. This isn't a US centric Wikipedia. We can't apply some sort of bias at all. This is a fundamental policy. - Zero1328

I was reading Chewco, and there's a sentence of yours that doesn't parse:

Additionally, as investors became more wary of Chewco, Michael Kopper, an Enron employee who reported to CFO Andrew Fastow.

There must be something missing there. Evercat 23:50, 9 October 2007 (UTC)

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Winslet attitudes.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed.

However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

History of taxation in the United Kingdom[edit]

A useful article. As it goes back to Roman times and is mostly not to do with the UK, I'm wondering what we can do about the title. Would you be happy with History of taxation in Britain? Moonraker2 (talk) 01:40, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

Sworn vs. unsworn declarations[edit]

Would you please take a look at my comments at Sworn_declaration#Isn.27t_this_completely_backwards.3F? Thanks. jhawkinson (talk) 05:39, 13 July 2013 (UTC)


Sorry, I'm not very active on Wikipedia any more and I just got this. I did a full response on the page. In a nutshell, this is a massive headache because the terms are not used consistently across jurisdictions.Apollo (talk) 20:04, 13 August 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 14[edit]

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