OK, this is my first contribution so I shall re-edit accordingly and hope meet criteria.

Colouring of links[edit]

Why are some links coloured blue and some coloured pale purple?

Please can you reply to my page JVSmithson.

The links coloured blue are 'fresh links' you have not clicked on them before. The pale blue links are links to the pages you have visited before, and the link colours make it easier for you to distinguish the pages apart. CattleGirl talk 07:39, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

Don't believe I have done so, so assume this is just friendly advice? JVSmithson 08:27, 31 October 2006 (UTC)

Lansdown Crescent & William Beckford[edit]

Hi, just a note to ask you to stop linking to Lansdown Crescent - as it is a disambiguation page. The correct link is to Lansdown Crescent, Bath. Thanks you. DuncanHill 23:44, 1 October 2007 (UTC)


Hi, still a novice so trying to learn - thanks for advice re disambiguation, have just checked round Wikipedia and worked out what it means! Will observe in future . JVSmithson 23:54, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

Thanks, if I can help with anything else then just ask - Wikipedia can be VERY confusing at times! DuncanHill 23:59, 1 October 2007 (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.
