May 2011[edit]

A belated welcome![edit]

Sorry for the belated welcome, but the cookies are still warm! Face-smile.svg

Here's wishing you a belated welcome to Wikipedia, Grammarspellchecker. I see that you've already been around awhile and wanted to thank you for your contributions. Though you seem to have been successful in finding your way around, you may benefit from following some of the links below, which help editors get the most out of Wikipedia:

Also, when you post on talk pages you should sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); that should automatically produce your username and the date after your post.

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! If you have any questions, feel free to leave me a message on my talk page, consult Wikipedia:Questions, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and ask your question there.

Again, welcome! —This lousy T-shirt (talk) 23:30, 30 May 2011 (UTC)

Rumpole of the Bailey[edit]

I have reverted your change to this article. Rumpole of the Bailey is an article about a British television series, and British English should be used in this article per Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style#National_varieties_of_English. "Ageing" is therefore the correct spelling. memphisto 10:25, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

Quotes[edit]

Hello! Thanks for the clean-up work on James Russell Lowell and other articles. Are you aware of Wikipedia's manual of style for punctuation inside/outside quotation marks? See WP:MOSLQ. Some of the changes you made are, as I understand, incorrect according to the MOS. Take a look at the Lowell article, particularly the second half of your edits, and see what you think. --Midnightdreary (talk) 13:54, 17 September 2012 (UTC)

Hello, fellow Wikipedian! I'm responding to your message on my discussion page. One tool that might help you is adding pages to your Watchlist. Take a look at WP:WATCHLIST. When you add pages to your Watchlist, you can see all at once which pages have had any recent changes. You can then click on "diff" to show how that page has changed with that particular edit. Alternatively, you can find the page which was changed, click on "view history" and compare different versions. The screen that comes up will show both the old version, the new version, and highlight the difference between them. Play around a bit and you might find these useful. --Midnightdreary (talk) 11:14, 4 August 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for December 30[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Ken Norton, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page World heavyweight champion (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

August 2013[edit]

Information icon Hello, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. I've noticed that you have been adding your signature to some of your edits to articles, such as the edit you made to Gary, Indiana. This is a common mistake to make and has probably already been corrected. Please do not sign your edits to article content, as the article's edit history serves the function of attributing contributions, so you only need to use your signature to make discussions more readable, such as on article talk pages or project pages such as the Village Pump. If you would like further information about distinguishing types of pages, please see What is an article?. Again, thank you for contributing, and enjoy your Wikipedia experience! Thank you.

Wyatt Earp[edit]

Thanks for your contributions to the article on Wyatt Earp. Unfortunately you introduced some errors, like changing the case of the title Deputy U.S. Marshal--which is properly capitalized--or otherwise merely reflected your personal preference (e.g., "when the cowboys accompanying the cattle drives arrived" to "when the cattle crews arrived") and didn't contribute to improving the article. I reverted your edits. — btphelps (talk to me) (what I've done) 20:50, 30 September 2013 (UTC)

Signature[edit]

Hi! When you leave comments on a talk page, don't forget to add four tildes (~~~~) so others know who left the message. — btphelps (talk to me) (what I've done) 07:45, 15 October 2013 (UTC)

Hi. Sorry for what seem like confusing info on signatures. You ALWAYS add a signature to anything you leave on TALK pages. But you NEVER leave a signature on content you add to an ARTICLE page. Does this clear things up?
And when you leave messages for people, add it to their talk page, not their user page. There's a difference.
Everyone appreciates your contributions to Wikipedia. If you have more questions, please feel free to drop by the Help Desk. Hope this helps. — btphelps (talk to me) (what I've done) 16:50, 29 May 2014 (UTC)
