UK Delsort[edit]

If you include an AfD within the England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland delsort lists then it is automatically also included on the UK delsort page and you don't need to include it in the UK list too. The UK delsort list is only for those articles which refer to the whole UK, not specifically to one of the four Home Nations. Regards. -- Necrothesp (talk) 15:09, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

Usernames - Name with com fail UFAA unless promoting/shitty edits[edit]

This falls under the username policy exception "usernames are acceptable if they contain a company or group name but are clearly intended to denote an individual person"

Ref Dates[edit]

MOS:DATEFORMAT allows yyyy-mm-dd as a valid date. MOS:DATEUNIFY says all dates in an article should be of the same format but allows for references to use yyyy-mm-dd regardless of the format used in the rest of the article. WP:DATERET says not to change the date format without consensus or strong national ties (note that Asian countries usually use yyyy-mm-dd in their native languages but are all over the place when using English).

FOR TALKPAGES - Your opinions on bus operators[edit]

Hi ,<br /> There are plenty of big name bus operators that provide shite services, But in general you should keep your opinions away from here,<br /> If you have issues with a bus company - Your best bet is obviously to complain to them directly instead of here :)<br /> Cheers, ~~~~

FOR TALKPAGES - Linking[edit]

Hi USERNAME & Welcome to the 'pedia!,<br /> I see you're having issues with linking ....<br /> Different link names are fine if they're different from the article name (IE [[Wikipedia|'pedia]], [[Bus|Public service vehicle]],<br /> Using the same name as the article is generally not useful or helpful,<br /> If I've not made any sense then please visit [[WP:LINK]] for a better understanding,<br /> Thanks and Happy Editing! ~~~~

FOR TALKPAGES - Images[edit]

Hi, Thanks for adding images to [[]],<br /> The image you've added tho serves no purpose as it only shows a front door to a building,<br /> We try to add images that are A. of significant interest, and B. the whole building,<br /> Thanks, ~~~~
