Hi Doniasis, and thanks for your copy editing of the culture shock article! Your help is really appreciated. I had a quick look through your contributions, and it looks like you're mostly interested in copy editing rather than writing in a specific topic area (let me know if I have got this wrong). If you are so inclined, might I suggest that you take a look at our Guild of Copy Editors? Yes, that's right, Wikipedia does actually have a whole community based around copy editing. Actually, copy editors are very much in demand on Wikipedia, and you'll probably find all sorts of editors will ask you to look over their nominations for good articles and featured articles if your name gets around - all optional of course. We also have a project for wikifying articles and for disambiguating links and article titles if that happens to float your boat. If you have any questions about editing Wikipedia or about any of the projects, then please feel free to ask - I'll be happy to answer. You can reply here if you want, as I'll be watching the page. All the best — Mr. Stradivarius ♫ 15:03, 12 December 2011 (UTC)
- Hello Mr. Stradivarius. That sounds great, thank you for the invite! Just one question: as a member, would I be expected to limit other types of editing in the future, or otherwise focus on strictly copy editing? Doniasis (talk) 17:54, 12 December 2011 (UTC)
- Hi again, and sorry that it's taken me so long to reply! I must have missed your message on my watchlist somehow. Your answer is, you can do whatever you want, you don't have to limit yourself to copy editing :) For all the stuff you can do, try having a look around our WikiProject directory. Best — Mr. Stradivarius ♫ 07:24, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

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.
