|Squeamish Ossifrage, communication, and you:
Whenever possible, I will ensure that talk page communications are threaded. This means that I will continue conversations on the talk page they begin, whether that be here or somewhere else. I watchlist talk pages where I am involved in conversation. If you are involved in conversation on my talk page, please consider either temporarily adding it to your watchlist, or at least checking in regularly while the conversation is ongoing. Communication, after all, is what makes this project possible!

Hello. Back in February the article that I re-wrote on the TV sitcom Temperatures Rising was promoted to GA status. Since then the article has had some further refining, including a"once-over" by the Guild of Copy Editors. I have now submitted it as an FAC. Care to take a look?
