WikiProject Canada rating[edit]

I've reverted your change to the Lethbridge rating - see my reasoning. Mindmatrix 22:12, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

Re: Lethbridge College[edit]

I added the "not to be confused with University of Lethbridge" hatnote to the top of Lethbridge College because both institutions are in the same town, Lethbridge, Alberta, and share a similar name. Someone unfamiliar with the schools or the area (like me) might be looking for a college or university named "Lethbridge" that is in Lethbridge unaware that there are two (in the United States there is no established difference between terms "college" and "university"). If you disagree, please let me know why. -Mabeenot (talk) 22:10, 1 December 2009 (UTC)

The only thing similar about their names is the word “Lethbridge”. In Canada, where these two institutions are located, there is an established difference. Lethbridge College doesn’t even offer degrees. I feel that such a practice could lead down a slippery slope, especially given the American usage. After all, it wouldn’t make sense to create college redirects for every US university article, and university redirects for every US college. --Kmsiever (talk) 03:46, 2 December 2009 (UTC)
Fair enough. You're more familiar with Canadian higher education. In response to your slippery slope comment, we already have redirects and disambiguation pages that mix universities and colleges in the United States (for examples, see the hatnotes for Boston University and Trinity University (Texas)). -Mabeenot (talk) 05:44, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Redaktor Wikipedia 600px.png

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, will be commencing a two-month trial at approximately 23:00, 2010 June 15 (UTC).

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under flagged protection. Flagged protection is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Karanacs (talk) 03:41, 16 June 2010 (UTC)

Cool. Thanks! --Kmsiever (talk) 15:50, 16 June 2010 (UTC)
