Although I am semi-retired from editing, I do still look things up on Wikipedia so I still see messages to this page.
I have semi-retired due to the nonsense of the date linking/delinking wars. Wikipedia is fundamentally broken. There will never be consensus (i.e. Wikipedia's definition of consensus, which is apparently that everyone agrees on everything**) on this issue and since Wikipedia is not a democracy where majority can rule, nothing will ever be resolved.

- Quote: See voting is evil. See also WP:NOTDEMOCRACY. The results of polls where only a majority is defined (and not a consensus) should be the start of more discussion, not the end of it. —Locke Cole • t • c 05:58, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

the United States, etc
It has nothing to do with the ArbCom case and you are free to follow the style guide in this respect. Just don't do too much too fast, or mow through article in a way that appears to be consistent with a single-theme process. I certainly remove links to major anglophone countries, and "English" (language), and "Internet", and "horse", and other dictionary terms, unless in rare cases where they pass the relevance test. You're doing the project a good turn. Tony (talk) 04:47, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

- Yep. :) But my goodness it makes disamming easier. :) One of the best simple tools I've found. --User:Woohookitty Diamming fool! 07:11, 12 September 2009 (UTC)
As Halloween is my favorite holiday, I just wanted to wish those Wikipedians who have been nice enough to give me a barnstar or smile at me, supportive enough to agree with me, etc., a Happy Halloween! Sincerely, --A NobodyMy talk 16:35, 31 October 2009 (UTC)

IP 184.108.40.206 is from County Library of Los Angeles, Lakewood branch. I am not the person who has vandalized a school wikipedia entry but there's no knowing who really did it due to the vandalizer using a public library PC. --220.127.116.11 (talk) 21:10, 20 December 2009 (UTC)
Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference
Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.
On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion, guidelines for use at WP:MINOR). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was
true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to
false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and all users will still be able to manually mark their edits as being minor in the usual way.

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.
