Varieties of English used in Wikipedia[edit]

I have reverted your recent edit to Laurence Graff. There are many varieties of English; no one variety is more 'correct' than any other. In Wikipedia, all varieties have equal standing; there is no 'default' or 'proper' or always correct version. However, when an article is about a person or place or subject that is tied to a place that uses a particular variety of English, then that is used for the article. So an article about Sydney is in Australian English, the one about Barack Obama is in American English, and the one about Laurence Graff, an English jeweller, is in British English. WP:ENGVAR provides more information on the varieties of English used and how to edit respecting them. It's perhaps worth checking up on, as people sometimes don't take too kindly to being told their perfectly correct way of spelling is incorrect, and having an incorrect 'correction' made instead ...

July 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Fritz Kreisler 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:

Changing other people's comments[edit]

Hi. I notice you've been correcting some spelling errors, which is great! But it's not really done to change people's comments on Talk pages, even to correct spelling errors - it changes the historical record of what people actually said, and it also tends to be seen as a bit rude.

Licia Albanese[edit]

Can you please discontinue edit warring about her date of birth, and instead contribute to the discussion about the issue on her talk page. Thanks. -- Jack of Oz [pleasantries] 23:42, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for December 17[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Dunnville, Ontario, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Mudcat. 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.

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.
