re: Descent from Habsburgs[edit]

Hello, Poko. Welcome to Wikipedia. In answer to your question about Marianne Faithfull's roots and descent from the Habsburg dynasty, Faithfull writes openly about this in her autobiography Faithfull (Cooper Square Press, 2000). Her mother was the Baroness Eva Erisso. Just quickly perusing online sources, the TimesOnline refers to this as well:

"She was a convent girl. Her parents were a bit exotic – father a former spy, mother a declassée baroness from the Habsburg dynasty."

Poko, it's Wikipedia! Feel free to make the changes you mentioned on my page to the article. I have no qualms with any of the changes you proposed. Simpy edit the page and include the source and the claim. However, the bit about giving creedence to it "just being her own claim" will need sourcing as well. Otherwise, feel free to contribute to the article as you see fit. I have no issues with what you would like to see changed =) Cheers, ExRat (talk) 21:01, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

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.
