Salamanca[edit]

I saw your comment on the talk page as I went there to explain my bold edit. I see you are a wiki gnome but in such cases of POV pushing like that sentence, we can be bold to rectify it Anarcho-authoritarian (talk) 23:31, 8 April 2017 (UTC)

Regarding your question on the missing comma[edit]

Regarding your question on the missing comma, Wouldn't it be a comma between a subject and a verb?, I'm not sure what you mean, but have you read WP:Copyedit#Punctuation?

It you take the sentence "The British North America Act of July 1, 1867, united the colonies of ... " (with commas per above), there is only place to insert the parenthetical expression "(now celebrated as Canada Day)", and that is between "1867" and the comma.

HandsomeFella (talk) 06:46, 4 July 2017 (UTC)

The example in the rules has an adverbial at the start of a sentence (On September 15, 1947, she began her first year at Harvard.), whereas your example puts two commas between a subject and a verb. I'm sure one of them is correct (July 1, 1867), but I'm not really familiar with the second one. Would you like to point out any rules about it?--Adûnâi (talk) 14:57, 4 July 2017 (UTC)
Please see MOS:COMMA, the "Burke and Wills" example. HandsomeFella (talk) 20:01, 4 July 2017 (UTC)
It's a completely unrelated example. If in your sentence, it was the Act that united the colonies, I don't see how you could put the second comma between them. And I can't see why it wouldn't be the Act. It would be exactly like in your example if it looked like this, "The Act of July 1, 1867, today called the Constitution Act, united..."--Adûnâi (talk) 13:43, 6 July 2017 (UTC)

Libyan Desert[edit]

Hello
I noticed your edits on this page, which I've just had occasion to go back to. Your edits were reasonable enough, but the text you found was the result of a bad change (here) which was imperfectly corrected (here). I've put it right, but have had to undo some of your changes in the process. I trust you are OK with that. Regards, Moonraker12 (talk) 22:51, 5 October 2017 (UTC)
