Thank you for your contributions. Please go carefully. Edits such as this do not help. Wevill was a poet. I took this to be vandalism, but assume it was a good faith mistake. Span (talk) 21:12, 3 March 2012 (UTC)

I Apologise, I looked at her categories and assumed she was famous for the murder-suicide. Decathlete (talk) 21:16, 3 March 2012 (UTC)
No worries. She is most famous for being the partner of poet Ted Hughes. Go gently. Best wishes Span (talk) 21:34, 3 March 2012 (UTC)

Noticed you addition to his entry and was wondering if you or anyone you know speaks German and could do a translation from the German version of the page? It's a low-attention kind of topic and I doubt my request on its talk page will catch many eyes. User:Natty10000 [Stop me before I edit again!] 12:59, 28 April 2012 (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.
