Please carefully read Talk:Michael Aldrich#Issues because I see that you have added more material that is somewhat non-encyclopedic in tone. Also, please review WP:BLP: good references are particularly important in a BLP. Johnuniq (talk) 02:59, 15 November 2009 (UTC)

January 2010[edit]

Information.svg In a recent edit, you changed one or more words from one international variety of English to another. Because Wikipedia has readers from all over the world, our policy is to respect national varieties of English in Wikipedia articles.

For subjects exclusively related to Britain (for example, a famous British person), use British English. For something related to the United States in the same way, use American English. For something related to other English-speaking countries, such as Canada, Australia, or New Zealand, use the appropriate variety of English used there. If it is an international topic, use the same form of English the original author used.

In view of that, please don't change articles from one version of English to the other, even if you don't normally use the version the article is written in. Respect other people's versions of English. They in turn should respect yours. Other general guidelines on how Wikipedia articles are written can be found in the Wikipedia:Manual of Style. If you have any queries about all this, you can ask me on my talk page or you can visit the help desk. Thank you. Rapido (talk) 17:01, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

Your recent edits[edit]

Information.svg Hello. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. You may also click on the signature button Button sig.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your username or IP address and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you. --SineBot (talk) 18:02, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, we would like to remind you not to attack other editors. Please comment on the contributions and not the contributors. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. Your comments and accusations aimed at me are disparaging and inaccurate. Please stop. Flowanda | Talk 10:54, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

Talk pages[edit]

Would you please spend some time looking at some other article talk pages and get a feeling for how they are handled on Wikipedia (see WP:TP and WP:TALK for the documentation). I mention this because it is quite hard to work out what is going on at Talk:Michael Aldrich. There is no reason to have all those level-1 headings (where you used a single =); if subheadings are required, use three = on each side of the heading. But the talk pages of lots of articles manage without lots of subheadings. Another issue is that editors expect a signature for the comment in each section (if I were to reply in one of the sections, it would look as if I wrote the section and then replied to myself). Finally, you should often be replying to the previous discussion, rather than creating new sections. Johnuniq (talk) 01:39, 6 February 2010 (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.
