April 2012[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to make constructive contributions to Wikipedia, your edit to Mariska Hargitay did not appear to be constructive, and has been reverted. The passage in question is a direct quote by Hargitay, and the source indicates that she said "live", not "leave". While it is certainly possible that this may have been an error on her part, it is also possible that it was not; the word "live" may have referred to the lives the mentioned that her organization were helping people reclaim. In any event, we do not know which it is, and even if we did, the proper procedure when transcribing direct quotes with errors is to place [sic]] after it, and not correct it ourselves. Please use the sandbox for any test edits you would like to make, make sure you use the Preview function before saving changes you're not sure about, and read the welcome page to learn more about contributing constructively to this encyclopedia. If you have any other questions about editing, or need help regarding the site's policies, just let me know by leaving a message for me in a new section at the bottom of my talk page. Thanks. :-) Nightscream (talk) 20:01, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
