Welcome to Wikipedia!

It's great to see someone here who's interested in children's literature. You've been doing some very nice work tightening up those articles. Feel free to send any questions my way. You can access my discussion page by clicking the link that says "talk" in my signature. Joyous! | Talk 21:55, 7 June 2008 (UTC)


{{adoptoffer}} Cheers, --Mizu onna sango15/珊瑚15 21:56, 7 June 2008 (UTC).

Thank you, Mizu onna sango15! I'll do a proper thank you once I've figured out how to do a "talk page response".

To do a talk page response, all you must do is click the "new section" tab at the talk of the talk page and create a new heading, or, if you're replying to a comment on the page, click the "edit" tab next to the appropriate heading; much like editing an article page. Don't forget to sign your posts with four tildes (~~~~)! For more information, see WP:TALK. Cheers, --Mizu onna sango15/珊瑚15 22:05, 8 June 2008 (UTC).


Hello, Queenmomcat (I didn't see your message on my talk page because you didn't place it under a new section; always remember to put new comments under a new heading unless you're replying to a comment on the page). To begin the adoption program, take a look at User:Mizu onna sango15/Adoption. Any questions you have, I'll be happy to answer. Alternatively, you may also always just leave me a note on my talk page. If you have any questions about the program, feel free to ask me. Happy editing! --Mizu onna sango15/珊瑚15 00:23, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

Nationality, ethnicity, or geographical information do not matter for joining into the project. :) Not every members are of Korean heritage nor have a relation with Korea (trip, friends, studies etc). You like Korean food and improve the grammar as reading relate articles. That's matter a lot! Wikipedia:WikiProject Korea/Cuisine. I hope you enjoy getting to know of Korean dish with the project! Thanks. --Caspian blue (talk) 16:03, 12 June 2008 (UTC)


You edited quite a lot of articles related Korean cuisine today (many of which are initiated by me, so I really appreciate your fixing grammar and polishing sentences). Do you want any particular article(s) related to Korean dishes to be created? If you have, you can request it to Wikipedia:WikiProject Korea/To do, Wikipedia:WikiProject Korea/Cuisine/Redlist or directly to me! :)

Also I notice that you're interested in cuisine articles as whole, so I also recommend you to join in Wikipedia:WikiProject Food and drink. You can find interesting articles from there. Thanks--Caspian blue (talk) 20:12, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

[1] was a damn fine job of copy editing. --mboverload@ 01:48, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

Thank you! high praise, indeed.Queenmomcat (talk) 13:33, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

Shorthand not appropriate


Changing "For example, he" to "FHE" as in the Swami Kalyandev article is not appropriate:


Ryoung122 01:06, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

Um, actually that wasn't shorthand...that was just a plain old stupid typo--"For example, he..." is correct. Queenmomcat (talk) 14:19, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

Shame and thanks

Ta for that correction (Liberty Horn). Hangs head in utter shame and wishes the Firefox spell checker had been installed then.... Peridon (talk) 17:10, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

Just in case you're checking here: I love the spell checker, and we all make typos. (My bugaboo(s) is 'guarantee'; I never got it right before the spell checker...) Queenmomcat (talk) 17:16, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

Spelling corrections

Hello! From the looks of your contributions list you're doing excellent work at fixing all manner of typos around Wikipedia. However, I'm writing to draw your attention to a revert I've just done on Rootes Arrow. You changed the spellings of "carburettor" to "carburetor" and "matte" to "matt". These were both, in fact, correct spellings in British English, the variety of English used in the article. You're probably already aware, but just in case you're not, the manual of style has a little to say about preserving national varieties, and in short, they shouldn't be changed except where an article jumbles two different varieties. If you're using any kind of automatic tool to help with these corrections, you might want to remove US-specific words from its dictionary, or devise a means of checking the variety in use in the article. Regards, – Kieran T (talk) 23:17, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

Duly noted. I'm not using an automatic spell checker, and was not aware that carburettor was the correct British spelling for the automobile part. Queenmomcat (talk) 11:41, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
Thanks! I must confess that it was only after writing the above that I noticed that you've already mentioned on your user page that you're aware of this issue. Sorry for not spotting that in advance. Cheers, – Kieran T (talk) 13:40, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
(shrugs) That's why I added it to my page. You have inspired me to go find the list of differences between American and British spelling...and see if there's one on punctuation as well. Queenmomcat (talk) 13:49, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

Late Roman army

I don't mind you editing in general, but I have to reword some of your edits on this article because they add meanings that aren't factually accurate. Wandalstouring (talk) 12:38, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

I spent 40 minutes correcting your edits. Please do me a favor and ask AnnaFrance (talk · contribs) to give you some guidance on copyediting. You violated the content several times. That's an absolute no for a copyeditor. I honor your intentions and you made some good contributions, but you can do better. Wandalstouring (talk) 13:28, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
(humbly) Thank you for checking my work; that is the article for which I was least sure of my changes. Is AnnaFrance (talk · contribs) back online? Queenmomcat (talk) 13:34, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
Just write her and she will answer when she is back. Wandalstouring (talk) 09:16, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for Wallonia

Thank you. I am a Walloon and my English is bad and I need help. But this sentence was corected by an Americain or an English:

A German vehicle exploded just before the Bayard rock when it triggered a mine laid by American soldiers.

The sentence (corrected) was

Said that etc.

Because it is perhaps a legend. Many people in, Dinant are speaking of that but I am not sure it is true. Sincerely, José Fontaine (talk) 16:11, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

You're welcome; translating from one language to another is hard! I'm sure your English is better than my Spanish, much less my French of the Walloon dialect.
I'm sorry about the sentence; I was the one who changed it, and I'll go un-change it to the best of my ability. Check the page again in a moment. Queenmomcat (talk) 16:23, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

Small ring (Brussels)

Hi. The "typos" you corrected were in fact just Canadian English spellings. -Oreo Priest talk 00:25, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for letting me know; duly noted! Queenmomcat (talk) 13:56, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

Spelling and infoboxes

Hi. Please be careful when changing the spelling fields in Infoboxes, such as your changes on the Saipan class aircraft carrier page, per this diff. Some templates, such as Template:Infobox Ship Characteristics, are very complicated. In some of the fields have alternate spellings, such as the ones for "draft"/"draught" and "armor"/"armour", to accomodate regional speeling variations. Other fields may not be standard English for the nation of the article, but still should not be changed. Thanks! - BillCJ (talk) 01:32, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know. Queenmomcat (talk) 13:01, 2 November 2008 (UTC)
