November 2009[edit]

Welcome, and thank you for correcting spelling on the One Ring page on Wikipedia! However, both spellings of the word you "corrected" are acceptable.

Please familiarize yourself with American and British English spelling differences before making further spelling corrections to articles. Wikipedia has 33,405,484 registered users on this English Wikipedia. These editors use different versions of English including American English and British English. The list of dialects of the English language goes on and on.

When many styles are acceptable, avoid changing from one style to another unless there is some substantial reason for the change. It is only acceptable to change between American and British spelling if the article's topic is particular to one country or the other, or if you are making the article internally consistent.

More information is available at Wikipedia's Manual of Style. Enjoy your time on the encyclopedia. Thank you. Carl Sixsmith (talk) 19:23, 3 November 2009 (UTC)
