Inappropriate links include (but are not limited to) links to personal web sites, links to web sites with which you are affiliated, and links that attract visitors to a web site or promote a product. See the external links guideline and spam guideline for further explanations. Because Wikipedia uses the nofollow attribute value, its external links are disregarded by most search engines. If you feel the link should be added to the page, please discuss it on the associated talk page rather than re-adding it. Thank you. MilborneOne (talk) 21:02, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

March 2013[edit]

Stop The links you have been adding to cruise-ship articles are inappropriate for Wikipedia. Please do not add them further; as this appears to be the sole purpose of your account, continued additions of these links may lead to it being blocked. - The Bushranger One ping only 21:32, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

My link updates and changes were motivated by observing that the majority of official site links were either broken or missing altogether, and many had little else to contribute of relevance or importance to the visitor. The links for reviews and locations are unique and added with this in mind. If this is not appropriate I will be pleased to reverse all/any that you instruct but it will take longer than the entries as they were prepared from a spreadsheet for efficiency.

Many of the cruise ship pages are either Stubs or sadly lacking so I am currently constructing one on all the cruise ships specifications to do in a similar update in the near future. My other conributions take a lot longer so appear sparce by comparison and will be more frequent in future, but my efforts are at all times altruistic and genuine, you have my assurance on that. - Sardine Sam 23:46, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

In the future, just limit yourself to official sites. Critic and review sites simply have no place in external link sections. Thanks! Huntster (t @ c) 22:02, 15 March 2013 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
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.
