A belated welcome![edit]

Sorry for the belated welcome, but the cookies are still warm! Face-smile.svg

Though you seem to have been successful in finding your way around, you may benefit from following some of the links below, which help editors get the most out of Wikipedia:

Also, when you post on talk pages you should sign your name using four tildes (~~~~); that should automatically produce your username and the date after your post.

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! If you have any questions, feel free to leave me a message on my talk page, consult Wikipedia:Questions, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and ask your question there.

Again, welcome! Piguy101 (talk) 22:01, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for "affluent"[edit]

Thank you for adding "affluent" to the Porter Ranch, Los Angeles, article, along with the citation. There has been an effort on the part of many editors (and I don't say they are acting in concert) to remove the "affluent" description from a number of articles, almost all of them in the San Fernando Valley. My own opinion is that a neighborhood should be described the way that WP:Reliable sources describe it, and in the WP:lede if that description is important to a quick understanding of just what kind of place we have here.

Copying within Wikipedia requires proper attribution[edit]

Information icon Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you copied or moved text from Resignation from the British House of Commons into John Pitt (of Encombe). While you are welcome to re-use Wikipedia's content, here or elsewhere, Wikipedia's licensing does require that you provide attribution to the original contributor(s). When copying within Wikipedia, this is supplied at minimum in an edit summary at the page into which you've copied content, disclosing the copying and linking to the copied page, e.g., copied content from [[page name]]; see that page's history for attribution. It is good practice, especially if copying is extensive, to also place a properly formatted {{copied}} template on the talk pages of the source and destination. The attribution has been provided for this situation, but if you have copied material between pages before, even if it was a long time ago, please provide attribution for that duplication. You can read more about the procedure and the reasons at Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia. Thank you. If you are the sole author of the prose that was moved, attribution is not required. — Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 15:45, 3 September 2017 (UTC)

Noted, sounds like a good rule. Thanks for adjusting the article to conform. --NoApostropheInIts (talk) 15:15, 5 September 2017 (UTC)
