Thank you for your edits to patriarchy, I see you are well read in sociobiology, just the kind of editor the article has always needed. I will read, mark and inwardly digest. I trust your experience of Wiki will be as pleasant for you as it may be informative for readers. Regards Alastair Haines (talk) 11:42, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

Thank you Alastair. Jimtaip (talk) 11:45, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

Light pollution#Energy waste[edit]

Wonderful picture, very appropriate for the season. I'll bet those people's power meter was spinning like a top. My wife says I'm a scrooge but I really hate Christmas lights.Trilobitealive (talk) 00:14, 17 December 2009 (UTC)

Wikilinking England[edit]

Hi, I noticed your edits on the Plymouth article as well as many others. Per WP:OVERLINK, "England" should not be wikilinked. The idea is that wikilinks are meant to help the reader understand the subject of the article; while I appreciate that not everyone knows what England is, the majority of people on the English Wikipedia will know enough for it not to hinder their understanding of the article's subject. Moreover, the majority of people reading the article are probably from England. Wikipedia's policy on overlinking is as follows: "Unless they are particularly relevant to the topic of the article, avoid linking terms whose meaning can be understood by most readers of the English Wikipedia, including plain English words, the names of major geographic features and locations, religions, languages, common professions, common units of measurement" (own emphasis added). Too many links detracts from the important ones. Linking England at the start of an article is not a big issue, and not worth edit-warring over, but please do respect the consensus. Thanks, Jolly Ω Janner 19:01, 20 December 2009 (UTC) (comment originally made by Nev1 at 18:45, 20 December 2009 (UTC))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.
