American English[edit]

Just wondering, why is this article written in American English as opposed to another variety? SFSSAnimating (talk) 00:06, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

@SFSSAnimating: There is a custom within Wikipedia that the variety of English which is first used when an article is created is kept. This is to prevent constant battles between people switching between British and American variations. The exception is when the topic is specific to one country, so for example an article about an Australian city should be in Australian English. You can read more about it here.
