August 2008[edit]

Information.svg Hello. Please don't forget to provide an edit summary, which wasn't included with your recent edit to BioShock. Thank you. triwbe (talk) 08:22, 2 August 2008 (UTC)


Both of these spellings are commonly used for small discordant intrusions. 'Dike' is used in the USA, while 'dyke' is used in most of the rest of the english-speaking world. Try googling on 'dike geology' versus 'dyke geology' and you'll see what I mean. The rule is normally that whoever originally starts an article, sets the spelling. In the case of Rhyolite, the original spelling was 'dike', so your edit was correct (it got changed about a year ago). I'm just telling you this so that you don't change all 'dykes' to 'dikes' in geology articles, such as Sheeted dyke complex (note the link to Dike swarm in the See also section, as that's how that one started out). It may not seem very consistent but both 'dike' and 'dyke' refer back to the same dab page and 'dyke (geology)' redirects to 'dike (geology)' so it really isn't a problem IMHO.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
