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.

Speedy deletion nomination of 123-reg[edit]

Hello Edward,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged 123-reg for deletion, because it doesn't appear to contain any encyclopedic content. Take a look at our suggestions for essential content in short articles to learn what should be included.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. AssortedLiquorice (talk) 10:22, 1 December 2015 (UTC)

Nathanael Kapner[edit]

I just undid a piping of a link you had put in at Nathanael Kapner. The existing Wikilink for War on Christmas was already being redirected to Christmas controversy, to which you piped it. For the reasons discussed at WP:NOTBROKEN, it's best to let such redirects do their work, rather than piping to the redirected page. Thanks for your efforts to improve Wikipedia! --Nat Gertler (talk) 19:49, 11 December 2015 (UTC)

May 2016[edit]

Mesoamerican region[edit]

Hi Edward - I see you've been mass linking Mesoamerican articles to Mesoamerican region - however, that article is an article on the modern economic region, not the cultural region, and it is not relevant to the vast majority of the articles you have linked - please check the target article before performing mass links like this. Thanks, Simon Burchell (talk) 19:05, 31 May 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know, much appreciated. Edward (talk) 19:30, 31 May 2016 (UTC)
