Your recent edits
Hello. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. You could also click on the signature button or located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your username or IP address and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you. --SineBot (talk) 21:10, 11 September 2011 (UTC)
Thank you for your attention to the Passchendaele page
- Fine by me. Seems to be a matter of personal preference. Serial comma. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 03:28, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

- I couldn't find it in the New York Times article, which was cited for the September date. This Washington Post article (fn 11 on Eva's article) says: "By mid-October, many in Washington's music community were aware of Cassidy's illness, though few knew its severity. Because she had no insurance, a benefit was scheduled at the Bayou, with dozens of bands and individual musicians volunteering their services." I see that your article does give a specific date however, September 26. Given the specificity of that the prior text may be better, as the Washington Post article is not explicit, but the article you cite should be cited instead. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 01:12, 22 December 2011 (UTC)

- Actually, it was constructive, as it inserted the actual time of the crash as listed in the cited source. Please take time to read the source-- you will find the time at page 45 of the .pdf.
Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia. However, talk pages are meant to be a record of a discussion; deleting or editing legitimate comments, as you did at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents, is considered bad practice, even if you meant well. Even making spelling and grammatical corrections in others' comments is generally frowned upon, as it tends to irritate the users whose comments you are correcting. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. Calabe1992 02:57, 15 November 2011 (UTC)
- No, by this edit I corrected the ungrammatical heading of some kind of straw poll. I doubt that changing "does protects" to "does protect" would irritate anyone, but if it does, perhaps that person needs grammar lessons.
- And speaking of irritation, surely you have something better to do than reinstate the error, and come here with this trivial complaint.
