Veteran Editor II

Animal shelters[edit]

Please give a specific reason for you reversion. Then revert your reversion and only change the bit you actually disagree with. I did extensive copyediting along with some more controversial (but accurate) changes. Reverting the whole thing without giving reason for any of it is against policy. (talk) 00:12, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

Thank you. One thing you may not have realised is that hadn't finished editing yet. It is my mistake to use so many edits instead of using the "show preview" button, but please allow me to finish my edits and then read final version. If you disagree with anything in the final version, you can change those parts back giving a specific reason for each of your changes so that it can be discussed publically on Talk:Animal_shelter. (talk) 00:20, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
I'm sure your edits are fine. I was quick on the draw when I saw this: someomtimes sick or wounded wildlife. Sorry about that. All the best. SlightSmile 00:27, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

Years (active)[edit]

From Keira Knightley

Here shows「1993--present」 while Chinese Wikipedia shows「1998至今」(1998--present).Which is right?--Mr.Sun Yat-sen (talk) 03:03, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

Deception Bay/Salluit[edit]

I would leave it. It is more useful than not having a redirect at all. What you could do is use an {{anchor}} in the Salluit article and have the redirect go directly to the sentences on Deception Bay. Cheers. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 00:59, 19 August 2015 (UTC)

No problems. Wikipedia is so large there are always new things to find. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 09:47, 19 August 2015 (UTC)

Debate on Bernard Shaw's nationality.[edit]

Was he "Irish" or "British" or do we need to define his nationality in some other way? A debate on the subject, to reconsider a long-standing consensus that he was Irish, has started at talk:George Bernard Shaw. Just in case you're interested. Current comments are at "Nationality", at the foot of the page - although an earlier thread at "Irish"? may also be relevant. --Soundofmusicals (talk) 06:01, 12 November 2015 (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.

about your reverts of my edits[edit]

Please stop reverting my edits. Instead you might create that category. Although it does not yet exist that category is in use. You can see that by clicking the link. You don't need to undo your reverts; I took care of that already.— Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

The edits he or she did are all messed up. This also seems to be a SPA, so maybe it's a newbie or someone who had an account but got blocked. They bear watching. DreamGuy (talk) 18:47, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
Thank you Slightsmile and DreamGuy for reminding me why I dislike editing Wikipedia. (talk)
Aw don't mention it 166. And thank you DreamGuy. I gotta step out for a while and I'll be back later. The best to everyone, even you 166. SlightSmile 18:59, 27 November 2015 (UTC)

78.26's RFA Appreciation award[edit]

Thank-you-word-cloud.jpg The 78.26 RFA Appreciation award
Thank you for the participation and support at my RFA. It is truly appreciated. I hope to be of further help around here, and if you see me doing something dumb, you know where to find me. Again, I thank you. 78.26 (spin me / revolutions) 01:29, 24 December 2015 (UTC)

You have a problem with my edits?[edit]

I don't hesitate to straighten out the amateurish, clunky, convoluted and turgid writing I find here on Wikipedia in abundance. Try reading the before and after and honestly ask yourself if it reads better. Reverting edits wholesale without thinking is a very bad idea. Zedshort (talk) 02:42, 21 February 2016 (UTC)

... gerund form of verbs makes the writing very clunky tells me that you are a serious editor regarding grammar and style improvements. Make the reading a little smoother. We've all encountered editors who unfortunately waste edits on minor unhelpful details (such as BC BCE). So I don't blame Rolfy or myself for being a bit quick on the assumptions here, especially seeing no edit summaries. Keep doing the good work. SlightSmile 17:01, 21 February 2016 (UTC)

Wikiproject United States Coast Guard Auxiliary[edit]

As a current or past contributor to a USCG Auxiliary article, I thought I'd let you know about WikiProject United States Coast Guard Auxiliary, a collaborative effort to improve Wikipedia's coverage of the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary. If you would like to participate, you can visit the project page, where you can join the project and see a list of open tasks and related articles. Thanks!

What's wrong with my edits?[edit]

This is regarding the Typosquatting article. I didn't do anything wrong, though maybe the John Oliver examples should be removed. Regards, (talk) 21:08, 12 April 2016 (UTC)

You removed a section heading for no apparent reason and the edit just looked overall messy. Also, get in the habit of giving edit summaries. I see you reverted me, how about you clean up your edit and put that heading back in. SlightSmile 21:21, 12 April 2016 (UTC)
