February 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Bob Costas may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "()"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • html "'Conan': Bob Costas not a fan of NBC's Olympic closing ceremony coverage"]. [[Zap2it]]). Retrieved September 16, 2012.</ref>
  • devoted baseball fan. He's been suggested as a potential [[Commissioner of Baseball|commissioner]]) and wrote ''Fair Ball: A Fan's Case for Baseball'' in [[2000 in literature|2000]]. For his 40th

English translations of French titles[edit]

Hello, Craigrottman. Many of your recent edits to the Jacques Brel article have improved the article. Regarding the presentation of English translations of French titles, however, your edits are not consistent with the Chicago Manual of Style (16th edition) which states:

14.108 Translated title supplied by author or editor

If an English translation of a title is needed, it follows the original title and is enclosed in brackets, without italics or quotation marks. It is capitalized sentence-style regardless of the bibliographic style followed. (In running text, parentheses are used instead of brackets; see 11.6.) See also 14.110.

The translations of foreign titles should be presented in sentence-style (capitalize the first word only and proper nouns). Please go back to the article and correct these edits. Thanks. Bede735 (talk) 21:41, 25 April 2014 (UTC)


There is no need to rewrite every sentence using the conjunction however; however, the correct usage includes a semicolon. Rmhermen (talk) 21:05, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

A belated welcome![edit]

Sorry for the belated welcome, but the cookies are still warm! Face-smile.svg

Here's wishing you a belated welcome to Wikipedia, Craigrottman. I see that you've already been around a while and wanted to thank you for your contributions. Though you seem to have been successful in finding your way around, you may benefit from following some of the links below, which help editors get the most out of Wikipedia:

Also, when you post on talk pages you should sign your name using four tildes (~~~~); that should automatically produce your username and the date after your post.

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! If you have any questions, feel free to leave me a message on my talk page, consult Wikipedia:Questions, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and ask your question there.

Again, welcome! Wikih101 (talk) 00:57, 2 March 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.
