Helping at Freemasonry[edit]

I got your message. New editors are always welcome. My advice... start off slow with a few simple spelling corrections etc. Participate in the talk page to get a sense of where things stand and what the current concensus is. Then, as you become more comfortable with editing, contribute a bit more. And if you don't know how to do something, just ask someone. Blueboar 19:38, 10 October 2006 (UTC)

If you go to your user page (click on the tab), there are some links there that you can follow to get to various pages on Wikipedia policies, Wikipedia usage, and other useful information. All the articles will still be there by the time you're done reading those, and it is far better to do things correctly than to let your enthusiasm get the best of you and make mistakes that are harder to correct.

deletions and reverts at Freemasonry[edit]

Bolognaking, I got your message re: my edit summary on reverting your deleting a line at Freemasonry... my concern here is primarily to maintain a firm hand on how major edits are conducted on the various Freemasonry pages... they should be discussed first. Any edit involving a citation is a major edit... so I reverted and added my comment just so you would know I think it should be discussed first. In reference to the specific edit, I admit to a little bit of knee-jerk conservatism. I did not fully look at what you were editing as much as that you were editing a citation. Reflecting on it, I do not remember why that particular line is part of the citation, and you are probably OK in deleting it... but as this is a highly controvercial section, I want everyone to be awair of edits to any citation... so my revert is also a way of highlighting your edit for others in case they want to comment. Here is my general advice... go ahead and be bold. Make any edit you wish. But be prepared for such edits to be reverted when someone wants you to slow down or to discuss what you are doing. When they do, post something about why you want the edit on the talk page. Given your record so far, you should find others agreeing with you once they understand your logic. Remember, it is better to go slow - make a few edits and pause to see how people react... then continue with a few more and pause again. Rince. Repeat. (as the shampoo bottle says). If you are not sure, ask first and edit after. Good luck. Blueboar 02:22, 1 November 2006 (UTC)

Grey Cup changes[edit]

Bestghuran probably didn't see the message you left on the talk page, just leave him a note on his own talk page explaining yourself, that should clear things up. Qutezuce 22:02, 21 November 2006 (UTC)

Bestghuran does have a talk page, every user does, its right here: User talk:Bestghuran. Qutezuce 23:29, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

60th Grey Cup[edit]

You might want to check back on this - you've got Hamilton winning over Saskatchewan, but you have box scores for Edmonton-Montreal. Denni talk 18:32, 24 November 2006 (UTC)

Ancient vs. Antient[edit]

I have created and expanded an article titled "Ancient Grand Lodge of England," as opposed to the previously existing article "Antient Grand Lodge of England," with the incorrect spelling of the name "Ancient." This has caused some discussion on Talk pages attached to both articles. Please take a look and weigh in on the discussion. I value your opinion. PGNormand 02:52, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
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.
