Variations of spelling in English[edit]

Hello IP user, I have reverted your edits to the following articles:

And if I see more, they will be reverted as well. In the spirit of respecting variants in English spelling, please do not change the spelling of measurements in articles about plants native to only the US. I'm sure there are those in America who would change "metre" to "meter" on the article London, but that wouldn't make any sense either, and would also warrant reversions. Otherwise, happy editing!

Final warning[edit]

In a recent edit to the page winemaking, you changed one or more words from one national variety of English to another. Because Wikipedia has readers from all over the world, our policy is to respect national varieties of English in Wikipedia articles.

For a subject exclusively related to the United Kingdom (for example, a famous British person), use British English. For something related to the United States in the same way, use American English. For something related to another English-speaking country, such as Canada, Australia, or New Zealand, use the variety of English used there. For an international topic, use the form of English that the original author used.

In view of that, please don't change articles from one version of English to another, even if you don't normally use the version in which the article is written. Respect other people's versions of English. They, in turn, should respect yours. Other general guidelines on how Wikipedia articles are written can be found in the Manual of Style. If you have any questions about this, you can ask me on my talk page or visit the help desk. Thank you. ~Amatulić (talk) 21:47, 22 November 2011 (UTC)
