Article talkpage[edit]

Wanted to check in. Did you intend to add the Novels Wikiproject to the article overview on the talk page? I want to make sure before I remove it. Generally, this is something that a vandal adds to a human trafficking article, as a way of asserting that human trafficking concerns are based on fiction. Let me know. Hope all is well.

  • Hi Cindamuse! I did not mean to add that. :) I copied that banner off the human trafficking page so that my class page for the PPI would be linked to it and I guess it came with. Please feel free to remove it. I am doing well. I added some more content to the page and tonight is the deadline for final content so I will be adding more information this afternoon. Please check back in a day or two and provide any feedback or suggestions if you see fit. I do have a question though, some of my classmates have an article feedback pilot box at the end of their articles and I noticed it was on the main human trafficking page too. Is this something associated with the Public Policy Initiative? Should I include it on my page too? Thank you for your help! And thank you for the award!!Jesswest (talk) 16:00, 24 April 2011 (UTC)
    • Sure, go ahead and add the feedback box to the article. We're trying to make sure they are added to the new articles. It's a new trial attempt at standardizing assessment of the articles. Not sure if it's working yet, but it's worth a try. Cind.amuse 16:20, 24 April 2011 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
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.
