Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Alfred and Emily, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Appendix and Epigraph. 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.
- Czy znasz może jakieś badania na temat wpisów na Wikipedii, dotyczących sytuacji lub postaci literackich? (w dowolnym języku). Pundit|utter 14:40, 2 February 2015 (UTC)
- Thank you, Pundit! Btw, by "fiction" I do not mean fictional situations or phantasy characters, but "fiction" like in Polish "literatura" (as opposed to "piśmiennictwo"), like in Category Utwory literackie (not much in use in plWP). How would I have to phrase it to make sure this particular group of articles is clear? --C.Koltzenburg (talk) 16:53, 2 February 2015 (UTC)
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.
