A new Oxbridge user box[edit]

Sjb90...I am currently in the process of writing a user box for all of the colleges that are part of Oxbridge. This template is meant to replace your current college template. Please take a look at the work in progress and comment on it. My main concerns are college abbreviations and color choice. I am using scarf colors for the colleges. Thank you. - LA @ 17:27, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

Do not send irrelevant messages making accusations to people just based on their IP address..[edit]

Dear Mr SJB90

This morning I received a message from you stating that you'd changed an edit that "I'd" made to some guy called James Whale on Wikipedia as I'd put my own personal opinions on there and they are not welcome on Wikipedia.

I noticed that the James Whale article you were referring to was last edited by this IP address in 2007.

Did it not occur to you that maybe since 2007 the person with that IP address might not actually be still using it, and that sending messages telling the person off in 2013 might just annoy someone else who has been re-allocated their IP address. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:06, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

Hi there! Looking at the timestamp for my message, it appears that I actually left it in 2007, very shortly after the edit in question. At the time, I was part of a nifty project to spot inappropriate edits within a few seconds of them being made. Sorry if you thought that I'd only just left it in March of this year -- that wasn't the case, as you'll see in the history of the talk page. It's a shame that Wikipedia doesn't remove the message after a short amount of time! – Stuart. (Sjb90 | talk) 22:08, 21 June 2013 (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.
