October 2013[edit]

Information icon In a recent edit, you changed one or more words or styles from one national 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 a subject exclusively related to the United Kingdom (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 another English-speaking country, such as Canada, Australia, or New Zealand, use the variety of English used there. For an international topic, use the form of English that the original author used.

In view of that, please don't change articles from one version of English to another, even if you don't normally use the version in which the article is written. 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 Manual of Style. If you have any questions about this, you can ask me on my talk page or visit the help desk. Thank you. Bailmoney27 talk 15:55, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

Your edits to Android (operating system)[edit]

Hi. I see that you restored your section on App Ops to Android (operating system). I removed it because it was completely inaccurate. You write that this was an application introduced in 4.3, it was not, it was a hidden preferences pane that Google used as "an internal testing and debugging tool". Some end users discovered and published a trick to un-hide it in 4.3. You then write that it was removed in 4.4.2, which is again inaccurate, it is still there, Google just made it more difficult to access. However, it can be accessed if you have root access on your device. The alternative apps that you link to also require root access so add no benefit for a non-rooted user, and the benefit of these tools for a rooted user over re-enabling app ops is not explained.—Jeremy (talk) 15:46, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
