Opting in to VisualEditor
As you may know, VisualEditor ("Edit beta") is currently available on the English Wikipedia only for registered editors who choose to enable it. Since you have made 100 or more edits with VisualEditor this year, I want to make sure that you know that you can enable VisualEditor (if you haven't already done so) by going to your preferences and choosing the item, "
Enable VisualEditor. It will not be available on talk pages and some other namespaces.". This will give you the option of using VisualEditor on articles and userpages when you want to, and give you the opportunity to spot changes in the interface and suggest improvements. We value your feedback, whether positive or negative, about using VisualEditor, at Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Feedback. Thank you, Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 18:21, 11 October 2013 (UTC)
What is your source for replacing the Union Flag with the Red Ensign to represent Canada or parts of Canada in the info. boxes for the War of 1812 or battles which took place during it (or even British generals born in Canada)? There seems to be no rationale for this sort of change. From your recent edits, I cannot see that you have made any properly researched and substantial changes to the body of any serious article, merely tendentious and disruptive changes to information boxes. I would advise you to amend this behaviour. HLGallon (talk) 13:50, 23 November 2013 (UTC)
- I'm seconding HLGallon's request. I'd like to understand your justification for the myriad changes you've been dropping in. Better for all if it can be worked out here. 15:26, 23 November 2013 (UTC)
Welcome to Wikipedia, and thank you for your contributions. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, please note that there is a Manual of Style that should be followed to maintain a consistent, encyclopedic appearance. Deviating from this style, as you did in United States Navy, disturbs uniformity among articles and may cause readability or accessibility problems. Please take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. Hello. The specific Manual of style is MOS:INFOBOX. Infoboxes are for key features of a topic. Individual ship engagements do not qualify in this regard. If you want to add the battle to the infobox, you ought to get consensus from the community. I started a discussion. Join in. – S.
