DO NOT TALK TO ME ABOUT:[edit]

Picayune little details about why I used a twelve hour clock instead of military time or why I used American spelling (because I am an American!) and not British for color. Anything trivial along those lines will be ignored and probably erased from this page. If you don't like that I wrote "Such and such happened at 2:43PM", don't ask me why I did it. If it bothers you enough to leave me a message about it, then make the effort to change it to 14:43. If it doesn't bother you enough to change it, then it isn't worth the effort to leave me a message.

Save your efforts for things that are more important like whether or not an article should be deleted or "Hey, the article you wrote said that Sam's Bar & Grill owned by Celebrity A is in My Town, CA when I really thought it was in Your Town, CA. Can you help me figure out which it really is?"Postcard Cathy (talk) 06:14, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

Sweat the big stuff, not the small stuff - bottom line. Postcard Cathy (talk) 06:36, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

C'mon, Cathy.[edit]

Don't let 'em get you down. Did you look at the AN thread? For the most part, you'll see experienced editors supporting you. (One even pointed out the edit that I placed on your talk page pointing out what Jenuk1985 said about changing Wikipedia.) Just shrug it off, it's all going to pass.

Competence[edit]

If you cannot fit into the collegial, collaborative nature of Wikipedia, you will be shown the door. I don't know if this was to prove a point or not, but doing exactly the opposite of what I asked for - a simple explanation of your reasoning - shows extremely poor communication skills, at best. Explain yourself, or I will block you for disruption. Tan | 39 15:04, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

I've created an edit notice for this page, in the hope that this will help to resolve this issue. Uncle G (talk) 16:44, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Lawrence H. Cooke[edit]

Hello Cathy, you tagged back in April the above article with a "merge" tag. At that time, I did not understand your proposal because the tag, as it was used, seemed to propose the merger of this article with itself. By chance I discovered now that you probably added the tag to the article "Lawrence Cooke" to be merged with "Lawrence H. Cooke", so that the tag message read at Lawrence H. Cooke the same as at the doublet, which did not make any sense to me. (This might be an inherent fault of this tag.) However, you are absolutely right that there are two articles on the same subject, and I will merge them somehow. What actually happened was that on October 14, 2008, I started to complete the listing of Chief Judges, and "Lawrence H. Cooke" (red-linked, with middle initial) was already in the list. I searched for Lawrence Cooke (without initial, that is standard procedure, exacly to avoid this type of thing) and found nothing. Later, I created articles on all red-linked Chief Judges without again checking. Now I found that somebody created on October 28, 2008, an article on Lawrence Cooke (without middle initial) without checking if there was already a red link somewhere. Things like this are rare, but can happen... Kraxler (talk) 18:45, 24 September 2009 (UTC)

Department of National Defence Colombia[edit]

Dear Cathy,

I'm probably note doing this correctly, so please go ahead and delete this entry as soon as you have read it.

I have only just stumbled across the note on my talk page from you concerning the deletion of the above article. I don't mind that it was deleted, because the purpose I made changes to it have been served anyway: to make it accessible to the almost 300 million people who write Defence rather than Defense. There is now a redirection to the main article and since it was written as Defense originally, who cares. As long as searching for it using British-type spelling will find it, that's all that matters. Forgive my bumbling attempts to modify stuff, but I need more spare time to become familiar with the most efficacious way to do it.

Regards, Carey T-F. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ctayfor (talkcontribs) 16:05, 2 October 2009 (UTC)
