If you feel that I have reverted an edit or issued a warning in error, please click here and let me know. I do make mistakes. Please don't interpret a reversion or warning on my part as a personal attack on you; it's not. Please bring any error to my attention as I am always open to civil discussion. (I will respond here on my talk page unless you request otherwise.) No worries, mate. Geoff

Reverted an edit I did not make[edit]

Hello Geoff, Recently you reverted an edit that you said I made. I am confused because I never make edits to Wikipedia--I am a passive user. Please explain why you think I made an edit (I am unfamiliar with editing, so I'd like to learn more about this). =) Thanks! (talk) 22:49, 17 November 2015 (UTC)

Can you tell me which article was involved? I suspect that you accessed Wikipedia using a dynamic IP address, that is, without logging on as a registered user. As ISPs often reassign dynamic IP addresses as users log on and off the internet, it is quite likely that you accessed Wikipedia using an IP address that had once been used by another person who made an edit which was reverted and a notice posted on that IP user Talk page. If you then happened to access using that same IP address, you would see a notice about an edit you never made. You can avoid these extraneous notices by creating an account. I encourage you to do so, even just to read the encyclopedia. It is free, has no obligation and hides your IP address from immediate view. Besides, if you become tired of the fundraising banners, you can set your User Preferences so you never see them again when you log on with your account. To learn more about editing, look at this page. Cheers! Geoff | Who, me? 23:01, 17 November 2015 (UTC)
IP user deleted the message exchange with the edit summary: "Nevermind--my school's IP made changes, not me specifically... this makes sense now (troublemaker kids)... =P)" - Not a problem - we'll leave this up for the record. Geoff | Who, me? 03:25, 18 November 2015 (UTC)

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.
