Thanks for your help with Spinoza[edit]

You're a good editor! Good catch on the grammar!--Tomwsulcer (talk) 18:55, 9 September 2009 (UTC)

Thanks![edit]

Great catches on Jimmy Wales, I appreciate it!  Skomorokh  07:35, 29 December 2009 (UTC)

sporange[edit]

The term sporange is dated. It used to be used in the literature, but isn't used any longer. You can refer to the sporange entry on Wiktionary for supporting quotations. However, as the term is indeed dated, I certainly agree that it is not needed as an alternative word form in the sporangium article. --EncycloPetey (talk) 06:40, 21 January 2012 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

How can you have edited here for so long, yet have no barnstar? This is long overdue for all your diligent efforts! -- EncycloPetey (talk) 06:43, 21 January 2012 (UTC)

2011 Norway attacks[edit]

Great edits and great edit summaries, keep them coming. These were not minor edits though, please don't mark such edits as minor. Let me know if you need any help. --John (talk) 21:40, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for the kind words, and for the helpful link. I have read the minor-edits page, and I'll keep it in mind. TypoBoy (talk) 21:53, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

Dangling modifier[edit]

TB, nice catch on this fix! Thanks. --76.189.98.15 (talk) 02:05, 17 July 2012 (UTC)

Sechele I[edit]

Thanks for the fix. Quite right, but as for the dad that you mention in your edit summary...... you have left me wondering. Amandajm (talk) 07:08, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

I was thinking of this Lonely Island song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gAYL5H46QnQ . I suppose I should not assume that nobody ever reads the edit summaries! TypoBoy (talk) 11:47, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

KAL 007: I believe it was a (rare) correct use of comprise, and it is less wordy. Michaelmalak (talk) 19:14, 1 September 2013 (UTC)

Oh look: Merriam-Webster agrees that yours is a valid meaning, and says objections to it (like mine) are wrong.
