Can you be a bit more polite than to go around writing "ignorant solecism" in edit boxes? A little Wikilove goes a long way, and not all our editors have English as a first language. (BTW, "comprised of" is definition 8c in the OED, and is not labeled as substandard in any way.)--Prosfilaes 21:44, 4 August 2005 (UTC)

Barnstar[edit]

Minor Barnstar.png The Minor Barnstar
For your abiding efforts to remedy grammatical and syntactic errors, I happily present you this barnstar; even as many of your edits may, individually, be minor, the import of those edits and the sum of your contributions surely aren't. Joe 16:20, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

(I intended simply to leave you a message apropos of your good work, but I decided you deserved a barnstar when I read the note supra; anyone who works to vanquish the horrid comprised of locution is altogether fine in my book.) Joe 16:20, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

Apology[edit]

It was pointed out on Talk:Main Page#Coronated or crowned? that I somehow "chastised" you "like an infant". Not sure why anyone would say that. I didn't. I had no such intent. I was just pointing out that the problem was fixed and suggested a way to view the fixed version of the Main Page. If you feel "chastised" in any way, I apologise. -- 64.229.7.39 20:24, 4 June 2006 (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.
