Dear Dan, Excuse me for answering you with such a delay! Of course you may use that Yarmouth postcard picture for the Dominion Atlantic Railway Digital preservation Institute. I am happy this old postcard, sent so many decades ago to my long deceased father-in-law, can have this historic value. Best wishes, Dolph Kohnstamm —Preceding unsigned comment added by Dolph Kohnstamm (talkcontribs) 18:59, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

Are you also Letterofmarque?[edit]

Hello. Judging by the near-identical user pages and editing history, it looks like you may also be editing under the name User:Letterofmarque. Is this so? If so, you might want to identify that, using the template found at WP:MULTIPLE. If not, please disregard. happy editing, Shawn in Montreal (talk) 15:43, 14 November 2014 (UTC)

Good point. Will do. Dan Conlin (talk) 23:13, 5 February 2015 (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.

Featuring your work on Wikipedia's front page: DYKs[edit]

Thank you for your recent articles, including Warsaw Fotoplastikon, which I read with interest. When you create an extensive and well referenced article, you may want to have it featured on Wikipedia's main page in the Did You Know section. Articles included there will be read by thousands of our viewers. To do so, add your article to the list at T:TDYK. Let me know if you need help, Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 07:24, 8 December 2015 (UTC)

WikiProject assessment tags for talk pages[edit]

Thank you for your recent articles, including Warsaw Fotoplastikon, which I read with interest. When you create a new article, can you add the WikiProject assessment templates to the talk of that article? See the talk page of the article I mentioned for an example of what I mean. Usually it is very simple, you just add something like {{WikiProject Keyword}} to the article's talk, with keyword replaced by the associated WikiProject (ex. if it's a biography article, you would use WikiProject Biography; if it's a United States article, you would use WikiProject United States, and so on). You do not have to rate the article if you do not want to, others will do it eventually. Those templates are very useful, as they bring the articles to a WikiProject attention, and allow them to start tracking the articles through Wikipedia:Article alerts and other tools. For example, WikiProject Poland relies on such templates to generate listings such as Article Alerts, Popular Pages, Quality and Importance Matrix and the Cleanup Listing. Thanks to them, WikiProject members are more easily able to defend your work from deletion, or simply help try to improve it further. Feel free to ask me any questions if you'd like more information about using those talk page templates. Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 07:24, 8 December 2015 (UTC)
