I noticed that you haven't edited in quite some time, so I just wanted to let you know that your efforts here were greatly appreciated and are missed! TDL (talk) 05:40, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
Seconded. I hope everything is OK, and look forward to seeing you around for more excellent country related work in future!  — Amakuru (talk) 13:11, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
Thank you TDL and Amakuru for your messages; they are appreciated. Put simply, I was growing increasingly tired of Wikipedia editing and the conflicts that came with it, and so decided to leave for awhile. My life has since moved on, and having more time I hope to pop around more often from now on. Glad to see you both still editing. Regards, CMD (talk) 22:34, 7 February 2016 (UTC)
Good to see you back! I'm still doing what I can, when I have the time, which is not as often as I'd like, sadly. All the best, and looking forward to seeing you here when you pop in.  — Amakuru (talk) 14:26, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
Welcome back! Yes I know the feeling well. It's often hard to stay motivated around here. TDL (talk) 03:44, 9 February 2016 (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.

Small Potatoes ( grammar )[edit]

Pentecost falls on the tenth day after Ascension Thursday (40 days after Easter). The sentence above is formally confusing , on its face . This sentence is the last line of the introductory paragraph . I could delve into the formal reasons for this structure/meaning confusion ,but the obviousness of the problem , would argue against any such tiresome chore . The , all too apparent , shoddy syntax , could be easily remedied by the deletion of the parentheses and the addition of 2 words to render the phrase therein as a clausal construct . Well , " eezy-peezy " you might think - if your inner dialogue included late 90's idiom - but , as it turns out , not so . The last time I engaged in this sort of ad-hoc syntactical smoothing for the purpose of clarifying , not changing , a writer's meaning - I believe it was , as basic as, noun-verb number agreement - my virtual knuckles were smartly rapped with a threat to report and then brand me with some odious Acronym . Needless to say , I refrained from reverting , nor did I engage in disputation , for a number of reasons . At this point , I could go on , concerning the distinction between proof-reading and editorial concerns , but I won't -- And I won't alter the confused and confusing sentence that occasioned this overly prolix diatribe .Bjhodge8 (talk) 05:44, 27 January 2016 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bjhodge8 (talkcontribs)
