Vimy Memorial Bridge

The Vimy Memorial Bridge is a bridge in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Completed in 2014, it crosses the Rideau River, connecting Strandherd Drive in Barrhaven and Earl Armstrong Road in Riverside South. The bridge has three vehicle lanes, a dedicated bus lane and a bike lane in each direction. It is named after the Battle of Vimy Ridge.

Salt lamp disambig[edit]

I'm not sure what the appropriate way to disambiguate salt lamps (lamps made from salt) from the new SALt lamp article, but salt lamp almost always refers to the former, so I undid your redirect. --Ronz (talk) 17:46, 18 November 2015 (UTC)

Help needed at DRN[edit]

You are receiving this message because you are signed up as a volunteer at the Dispute Resolution Noticeboard. We have a number of pending requests which need a volunteer to address them. Unless you are an inexperienced volunteer who is currently just watching DRN to learn our processes, please take a case. If you do not see yourself taking cases in the foreseeable future, please remove yourself from the volunteer list so that we can have a better idea of the size of our pool of volunteers; if you do see yourself taking cases, please watchlist the DRN page and keep an eye out to see if there are cases which are ready for a volunteer. We have recently had to refuse a number of cases because they were listed for days with no volunteer willing to take them, despite there being almost 150 volunteers listed on the volunteer page.

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.

Although your recent additions to Hillary Clinton presidential campaign, 2016 were indeed well researched and written, they have almost nothing at all to do with the subject of the article. It is almost all to do with historical fundraising of the Clinton family and the associated foundation, and virtually nothing to do with the current campaign. -- Scjessey (talk) 13:22, 27 November 2015 (UTC)

You misunderstand

In this edit you show a misunderstanding of Shamus Khan's book. Please read it. User:Fred Bauder Talk 16:40, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

No misunderstanding[edit]

I understand exactly what he meant when I read what he wrote that elitism is earned. I am not a socialist by any means, but the empirical data from the bank and auto bailouts of 2009 onward do not support any such notion of earned elitism. Mr. Bauder, you need to be updated on recent history. User:Noblestats Talk Noblestats (talk) 13:12, 24 December 2015 (UTC)

Warning on POV editing[edit]

It is seriously irresponsible to put up an article that violates WP:NPOV as blatantly as Protests of Donald Trump presidential campaign, 2016. I hope that you will add some balance as you continue to build the article.E.M.Gregory (talk) 14:20, 13 March 2016 (UTC)

Rainbow trout transparent.png Whack!
You've been whacked with a wet trout.

Don't take this too seriously. Someone just wants to let you know you did something silly.

for starting an egregiously POV page, and, when called on it, doubling down with more exceedingly POV editing. You're better than this. I've looked at your edit record, an, really, you're better than this. E.M.Gregory (talk) 14:21, 14 March 2016 (UTC)

Nomination of Protests of the Donald Trump presidential campaign, 2016 for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Protests of the Donald Trump presidential campaign, 2016 is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Protests of the Donald Trump presidential campaign, 2016 until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. – Muboshgu (talk) 18:29, 14 March 2016 (UTC)

DRN help needed and volunteer roll call[edit]

You are receiving this message because you have listed yourself on the list of volunteers at Wikipedia:Dispute resolution noticeboard/Volunteering#List of the DRN volunteers.

First, assistance is needed at DRN. We have recently closed a number of cases without any services being provided for lack of a volunteer willing to take the case. There are at least three cases awaiting a volunteer at this moment. Please consider taking one.

Second, this is a volunteer roll call. If you remain interested in helping at DRN and are willing to actively do so by taking at least one case (and seeing it through) or helping with administrative matters at least once per calendar month, please add your name to this roll call list. Individuals currently on the principal volunteer list who do not add their name on the roll call list will be removed from the principal volunteer list after June 30, 2016 unless the DRN Coordinator chooses to retain their name for the best interest of DRN or the encyclopedia. Individuals whose names are removed after June 30, 2016, should feel free to re-add their names to the principal volunteer list, but are respectfully requested not to do so unless they are willing to take part at DRN at least one time per month as noted above. No one is going to be monitoring to see if you live up to that commitment, but we respectfully ask that you either live up to it or remove your name from the principal volunteer list.

We noticed though that when you edited Wyoming batholith, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Granite Mountains (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).
