Thanks very much from editor of Artlink trying to change my site. Yours is the voice of reason. Still struggling with how-to-do this thing, and get around this idea of verifiability, but have just changed my name to Artsandculture, and will insert a revised draft in my sandbox. Thank you and would appreciate your continued advice and assistance with this. Artsandculture (talk) 04:23, 29 March 2015 (UTC)
