Military brat (U.S. subculture)[edit]

Hi Grouchy, I responded to your criticisms on the Military brat FAC---but I honestly do not understand the one about poor grammar. Grammar isn't my strong suit, so it may be that I'm being dense, but I was hoping that you could respond to my question on the FAC page? If there is a problem, it needs to be fixed, I just don't see it.Balloonman 06:07, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

Grouchy, I was wondering if there was anything else that you thought was needed before you could change your vote from reject to support? It sounds like you liked the article and I fixed your stated concerns, so I'm not sure if there is anything else?Balloonman 07:42, 2 February 2007 (UTC)


if we are going quibble about grammar i don't think wiki articles have mechanics...


1 a (1): of or relating to machinery or tools <mechanical applications of science> <a mechanical genius> <mechanical aptitude> (2): produced or operated by a machine or tool <mechanical power> <a mechanical refrigerator> <a mechanical saw> b: of or relating to manual operations

2: of or relating to artisans or machinists <the mechanical trades> 3 a: done as if by machine : seemingly uninfluenced by the mind or emotions : automatic <her singing was cold and mechanical> b: of or relating to technicalities or petty matters 4 a: relating to, governed by, or in accordance with the principles of mechanics <mechanical work> <mechanical energy> b: relating to the quantitative relations of force and matter <mechanical pressure of wind on a tower> 5: caused by, resulting from, or relating to a process that involves a purely physical as opposed to a chemical or biological change or process <mechanical erosion of rock>

so maybe you used the right word, though not literally the right word...! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:11, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

I've read this entry relating to mechanics many times, but never have been able to understand what I did to earn this fine elucidation. That is, I don't know which of my edits you're referring to. Sorry. GrouchyDan (talk) 04:08, 22 June 2009 (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.
