Thanks for the welcome. I'll expect to just be fixing any spelling and grammar errors that I spot on pages I read. It's not much, but it's something. :-) Stelio 15:49, 1 February 2006 (UTC)

Lorien Trust: Bears' Website[edit]

You are quite correct, I've updated it to the current address. By the way, which faction are you in? ;) --JiFish(Talk/Contrib) 20:59, 15 February 2006 (UTC)

I'm a Bear, with no title or status. However, if you ever hear of the Clan McGeef, you'll know I'm in there somewhere. ;) --JiFish(Talk/Contrib) 22:06, 15 February 2006 (UTC)


To let you know in advance, I changed the capitalisation of this article from "Allen's Swamp Monkey" to "Allen's swamp monkey" and similarly updated all article links to the page. If I find the time, I plan to do the same for other monkeys' names as there is currently an inconsistent approach across articles (compare say Blue Monkey and Spider monkey).

Let me know if you disagree and I'll revert the changes (or you can do so yourself). I'll hold back on any more monkeying around until I hear from you either way. :-)

Thanks, Stelio 15:10, 10 April 2006 (UTC)

Please see WP:PRIM before you go messing with the existing capitalizations. - UtherSRG (talk) 15:10, 10 April 2006 (UTC)
Please don't. See WP:PRIM. Blue Monkey is a single species. Spider monkey is a genus. - UtherSRG (talk) 15:12, 10 April 2006 (UTC)
Ah, I see. That makes it a lot clearer now, thank you, and adds another layer to the experience of reading the articles. Now I can tell whether a term refers to a single species, or a group or genus, just from the capitalisation. Useful. :-) And indeed section] clarified the policy in detail. Thank you again.

Ancient Greek Wikisource[edit]

I understand from your userboxes you're interested in Ancient Greek. I've submitted a proposal to add an Ancient Greek Wikisource on Meta, and I'd be very grateful if you could assist me by either voting in Support of the proposal, or even adding your name as one of the contributors in the template. (NB: I'm posting this to a lot of people, so please reply to my talkpage or to Meta) --Nema Fakei 20:10, 24 May 2006 (UTC)

(NB - I didn't tag the image, just spotted it and thought you should be told about the possible deletion of your picture) Carre 11:17, 21 November 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know. I already contacted Miss Parish for further detail on the ownership and copyright of the image, and will clarify when I have this. If the image gets deleted in the meantime, this is in accordance with Wikipedia policy and I will certainly not complain. If I get the appropriate formal acknowledement of permission, I will either update the tags on the image, or (if it has already been deleted) re-upload the photograph. Thanks, Stelio 11:49, 21 November 2006 (UTC)
