Avoid using meta-templates - Scope creep[edit]

Thread with comments from User:BlankVerse re scope creep and related clearness issues in WP:AUM moved to Wikipedia talk:Avoid using meta-templates.

Bottom of Page - Please Insert Comments Above![edit]

Edit this section to add your talk comments above by inserting a --new topic-- above this one. Having a section at the bottom, saves having to edit the whole page, just to add new. Ditto the top entry: only minimal lead paragraph (which can remain constant). Editable intro text goes into Sect#1.

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.
