Talk page comments, and Ubuntu
I think a paraphrase is a better idea. It needs some copyediting though (I will take a look soon). Why did you remove my comment from your talk page? It can be seen as bad faith to remove it and is generally frowned upon. Why not leave them there and archive your talk page on a regular basis? -Localzuk (talk) 22:48, 19 January 2006 (UTC)
- Oh, and also, please do not mark changes such as those you have made as minor edits as they are actually quite substantial. -Localzuk (talk) 22:49, 19 January 2006 (UTC)
Daphne Rosen controversy settled?
You updated the Daphne Rosen page claiming you'd confirmed she didn't attend Amherst College. How do you know?
- I went and checked the rosters for the past 10 years as well as the alumni database. It's a small school and the information is available if you know the right people. Euphrosyne 01:36, 7 November 2006 (UTC)
Euphrosyne, goddess and asteroid
Ah, but the asteroid is named after the goddess, so...Maybe you'd like the user box worded differently? :-) Urhixidur 01:28, 21 March 2007 (UTC)
The Yousef Abu-Taleb page had a tag that said the issue needed to be resolved by an admin. Are you an administrator? Do you have the permission to remove that copyright notice? --JayHenry 00:50, 25 March 2007 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference
Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.
On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was
true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to
false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being 'minor'. The only thing that's changed is that you will no longer have them marked as minor by default.
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.
