Restraint orders[edit]

Hi

You reviewed my draft article on restraint orders. You have suggested that a page on the topic already exists. With respect you are mistaken. My article is on 'restraint orders' which freeze the bank accounts and assets of suspected criminals who are believed to have profited from crimes such as theft, fraud, drug trafficking, etc.

The existing page refers to a different topic "restraining orders" which are orders to prevent alleged sex offenders from pursuing / contacting their victims. The names are confusingly similar - but the orders are quite different!

It was for precisely that reason that I thought it would be useful to start a wiki page on restraint orders. (I have also now edited and improved the article originally submitted and re-submitted it.) — Preceding unsigned comment added by DavidwinchUK (talkcontribs) 12:03, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

Excirial , Many thanks for sorting that for me. Much appreciated! DavidwinchUK (talk) 13:11, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
You are very welcome of course. I did take the liberty to add two {{confusing2}} templates on the article though. Those are used in cases when there are two or more similar topics which a reader could easily confuse for the other subject. Seeing that i bumped into that issue nose-first myself i figured i might not be the only one.
Also, i must say that this page is an excellent piece of work for a new article. Since i patrol the newest AFC submissions first it is fairly rare to run into something that is f decent enough quality to accept in one go. Keep up the great work!
