Just wanted to say thanks for your mediation, cool demeanor and coming up with the obvious yet timely solution in the Abortion debate on "unborn human". - RoyBoy 800 05:01, 17 Jun 2005 (UTC)

You have not reverted my page![edit]

User:Pancasila has vandalized my page and you have NOT reverted it!!! Where is the "Message to the Administrators" that I had on my page prior to that user's vandalism???

That user has vandalized my page and you did nothing to warn HIM or fix my page. Instead, you warned me, ignoring the fact that my page was vandalized by him first without any provocation! John Hyams 13:44, 14 December 2006 (UTC)

"instalment" is UK spelling[edit]

Information.svg In a recent edit to the page Doctor Who missing episodes, you changed one or more words from one international variety of English to another. Because Wikipedia has readers from all over the world, our policy is to respect national varieties of English in Wikipedia articles.

For subjects exclusively related to Britain (for example, a famous British person), use British English. For something related to the United States in the same way, use American English. For something related to other English-speaking countries, such as Canada, Australia, or New Zealand, use the appropriate variety of English used there. If it is an international topic, use the same form of English the original author used.

In view of that, please don't change articles from one version of English to the other, even if you don't normally use the version the article is written in. Respect other people's versions of English. They in turn should respect yours. Other general guidelines on how Wikipedia articles are written can be found in the Wikipedia:Manual of Style. If you have any queries about all this, you can ask me on my talk page or you can visit the help desk. Thank you.

As prominently noted in two hidden-text notes in the article, "instalment" is the proper UK spelling. See here. —Josiah Rowe (talkcontribs) 04:30, 23 November 2008 (UTC)

Sorry if I got a bit tetchy. It's just that I've been fixing that "correction" all evening, and I had put two hidden text notes (with pointers to the Oxford dictionary site) in the article, and still people are "correcting" it! —Josiah Rowe (talkcontribs) 04:38, 23 November 2008 (UTC)
