Recumbent bicycle[edit]

Hi... Your recent edits to the article leave me wondering as to the source. The edits you have made imply that the entire paragraph "Safety" is supported by the "Landis, Bruce; Petritsch, Theodore; Huang, Herman (2004)" source, but I don't think that's the case. Could you please take a second look at your edits and clarify sourcing as needed? Thanks! — Twisted86 - Talk - at 22:36, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

Okay, I will check that. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

January 2013[edit]

Your recent editing history at Air France Flight 447 shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in you being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection. Δρ.Κ. λόγοςπράξις 23:40, 21 January 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 30[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Felony murder rule, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Merger doctrine (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

October 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Safe harbor (law) may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "()"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • Modest Suggestion (July 18, 2013) 16-18, available at SSRN: http://ssrn.com/abstract=2295245. ] </ref>
  • which protect [[Internet service provider]]s from the consequences of their users' actions. (Similarly, the EU directive on electronic commerce provides a similar provision of "mere conduit"

January 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Geotargeting may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "()"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

OER inquiry[edit]

Hi Michael Frind, I'm sending you this message because you're one of about 300 users who have recently edited an article in the umbrella category of open educational resources (OER) (or open education). In evaluating several projects we've been working on (e.g. the WIKISOO course and WikiProject Open), my colleague Pete Forsyth and I have wondered who chooses to edit OER-related articles and why. Regardless of whether you've taken the WIKISOO course yourself - and/or never even heard the term OER before - we'd be extremely grateful for your participation in this brief, anonymous survey before 27 April. No personal data is being collected. If you have any ideas or questions, please get in touch. My talk page awaits. Thanks for your support! - Sara FB (talk) 20:45, 23 April 2014 (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. For the Election committee, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 16:38, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

Martin Shkreli - Now or Later?[edit]

Hi! Just noted you changed "came" to "have been". This means that the text effectively loses temporal validity the moment you press the Save button. We need to write our material in the past tense to preserve its validity into an unknown future. If the investigation ends, your text is immediately outdated. So please consider reverting your edit. Thanks. sirlanz Sirlanz 03:18, 18 December 2015 (UTC)

Optimizely[edit]

Hi, you recently edited Optimizely's page saying "Optimizely's work inevitably focuses on advertising". I don't see why this is the case? Perhaps it is true of media companies that use the product, but a typical ecommerce or b2b company or non-profit is not going to be using Optimizely for advertising. This is even less true for A/B testing within mobile apps. A/B testing is simply a method of testing two versions of a page to see which one performs better, there is nothing which "inevitably" links it to advertising.
