Disambiguation link notification for January 15[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Kerning, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Sort (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Hello -- thanks for your message! I'm in the midst of searching for specific evidence that VirtuMall was indeed a very active online shopping website that while getting significant notoriety in 1995, was nonetheless very visible and active in 1994. I can tell you this based on first-hand, personal experience. Indeed the Hickory Farms site was launched in 1994 as well as a number of others. It was the first to use some now common shopping cart technologies and payment technologies. While I don't doubt that the Google searches are not turning up anything earlier than January 1, I would argue that's because much of the web was not indexed prior to that date. I'm looking for Usenet articles that can substantiate those claims. In the meantime, I give you my word about the company's formation and its value and presence prior to 1995. But the page you are editor of will be lacking if it neglects to mention sites that were formative in the creation of the Internet and Web as we know it.

Alright, I'll leave it alone for now. Thanks for your contributions. Battling McGook (talk) 18:27, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

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.
