I see that you are replacing a lot of images in the infoboxes of cities with montages. I just reverted the change at Los Angeles, and will probably change a few more back: I personally don't find them attractive, but more importantly those kinds of changes are so big that they need to be taken up on the talk page. Thank you. Drmies (talk) 04:22, 9 November 2010 (UTC)

As (from a cursory glance) you have been editing sporadically since you began, remember that potentially contentious issues are built on consensus. Also, barring nonsense, while you should not generally edit with hesitation, caution may need to be exercised when controversy may arise. I do not know the Wikipedia policy shortcut links, but the ideal and harmonious (river crab, anyone? LOL) process is:
  • One editor decides upon a major (even minor) change.
  • The change attracts enough negative attention that another editor overrides that change.
  • The original editor, that is, the one who made the change to begin with, brings the issue on the talk page.
  • Other editors comment on the proposed change.
  • After some time, a conclusion is reached. Remember that WIKI is NOT a Democracy. If it were, it would be ruined! Conclusions are reached based upon the validity of the arguments presented.
The process outlined above is to reduce the chances of edit warring from occurring. I avoid it with dread because it wastes time and is often always inflammatory. --HXL's Roundtable, and Record 05:17, 9 November 2010 (UTC)

Montreal Montage[edit]

I see there are comments from other users about this so I won't go into too much detail. I have reverted your change to the Montreal article. Changes like these need to be discussed and although there were a couple of users that wanted a montage, that doesn't mean you have reached a consensus.

I would love to have a montage, but this particular one doesn't look good. There is a HUGE focus on the Montreal Stock Exchange Tower. If you like, you may get others to contribute to the discussion and we can all have a discussion on what images to use and how the montage should be arranged. Having said that, in the end, there might be too many people that do not want a montage, so one will not be implemented. Please take that into consideration. Thank you for your contribution, but you are going to need to reach consensus. Nations United (talk) 19:52, 14 November 2010 (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.
