Welcome[edit]

Information.svg Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you recently copied the contents of a page and pasted it into another with a different name. This is what we call a "cut and paste move", and it is very undesirable because it splits the article's history, which is needed for attribution and is helpful in many other ways. The mechanism we use for renaming an article is to move it to a new name which both preserves the page's history and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. In most cases, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page. If there is an article that you cannot move yourself by this process, follow the instructions at Wikipedia:Requested moves to request the move by another. Also, if there are any other articles that you copied and pasted, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut and paste move repair holding pen. Thank you. —Elipongo (Talk contribs) 10:14, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

Hello Elipongo, thank you for your advice. Perhaps if I explain further what I did you could clarify whether it was the right thing to do, or whether there was a better way to do it.
There was an article (about a band) entitled 'Youthmovie Soundtrack Strategies' (the original band name) and another article entitled 'Youthmovies' (the band's newer shortened name) which redirected to the first article. It seemed more logical for the redirect to happen the other way - i.e. for 'Youthmovie Soundtrack Strategies' to redirect to 'Youthmovies', especially since the article itself begins "Youthmovies (also known as YMSS or Youthmovie Soundtrack Strategies) are an English rock quintet..." Hence my edits. I look forward to your further advice, thanks! Slim cop (talk) 10:58, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

Hello.[edit]

Hello Andy, hope you get this message! Can you tell me/point me at advice on how to ref a chapter by one author in a book edited by another? Can't quite figure out how to use the templates to do this. Many thanks, Simon.

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.

Photo request in Wexham[edit]

Hi! I'm looking for somebody to take a picture of the Teikyo School United Kingdom (Framewood Road, Wexham, Buckinghamshire SL2 4QS UK), a boarding school for Japanese people, so it can be used in its Wikipedia article. Is it okay if you photograph the main entrance (seen in this image)?

If they let you photograph the campus buildings that would be a bonus :)
