Cadell/Sinden trivia[edit]

Hi, I'm happy to be corrected, but isn't an apostrophe after the name 'possessive'? So surely it should be correct? Manxwoman (talk) 00:05, 17 March 2012 (UTC)

I stand corrected and your explanation's'(!) were very clear. Thank you! Manxwoman (talk) 16:56, 17 March 2012 (UTC)

Baron[edit]

What a lovely article on Baron. I've been meaning to create it for a while. Do you know of any more sources for Marcus Adams? Gareth E Kegg (talk) 11:02, 8 June 2013 (UTC)

Fermat's little theorem[edit]

Your edit preserves exactly the meaning of the sentence, so if you believe it's right now then you should also believe it was right before. (I think that your edit has probably made it clearer.) --JBL (talk) 14:58, 17 September 2015 (UTC)

In the statement "X if and only if Y", the "if direction" is "Y implies X" and the "only if direction" is "X implies Y". So, to abstract slightly, the previous version was "in the expression 'X if and only if Y', the implication 'X implies Y' is true but the implication 'Y implies X' is false." You've changed it to "in the expression 'Y if and only if X', the implication 'X implies Y' is true but the implication 'Y implies X' is false." So you have not changed the content at all. However, I agree with you that the previous wording was a confusing way to express this content, and that the way you've rephrased it is clearer and less confusing. --JBL (talk) 18:36, 17 September 2015 (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.
