Your recent edits[edit]

Hi there. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. If you can't type the tilde character, you should click on the signature button Button sig.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your name and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you! --SineBot (talk) 22:45, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

Hello, Stwiso. You have new messages at Talk:Water Buffalo#Comment on edits.
You can remove this notice at any time by removing the {{Talkback}} or {{Tb}} template.

I just left a friendly suggestion there, you can ignore it if you want and I won't bother you anymore. Rgrds. --Tombstone (talk) 12:43, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

Stwiso – just wanted to apologise if you felt in the least that I was obstructing your edits or taking ownership of the water buffalo page in any way. Neither was my intention – I was simply trying to help ensure (as for any WP page) that only relevant, well-referenced material was included. In fact I think your edits have been a useful contribution, and for what it's worth I think your continued involvement in that page would be worthwhile.

on Ostia[edit]

Hi, Stwiso. Please see my comment here on your editing of Ostia Antica. Apologies in advance if I sound more testy than I mean to. Cynwolfe (talk) 18:22, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

Mount Tamalpais[edit]

Hi. I have reverted your recent edit of Mount Tamalpais. I'm sure the edit was made in good faith but lodging locations are not usually considered appropriate in Wikipedia. Please see WP:NOTTRAVEL. I think your information would be more welcome at Wikitravel, or Wikia travel. If I can be of assistance to you in anyway please leave a note on my talk page. –droll [chat] 08:23, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

re Leatherstocking Region[edit]

Hi Stwisto, thanks for the heads-up. I changed the reference in the Utica and Rome articles and a couple of US Route articles to reflect the change to Central New York Region. Herostratus (talk) 14:48, 14 July 2010 (UTC)

Hamilton village[edit]

Hi, I assume you're talking about the Hamilton village article? The best thing to do is to discuss it on the talk page with the other editor, and perhaps on their user talk page as well. If there is an enormous problem, you could take it to Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents, but hopefully that won't be necessary (actually that would probably make it worse and nothing would ever get done...). I don't see the problem though, it looks like all your changes are still there (unless I'm looking at the wrong article). Adam Bishop (talk) 03:44, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

Help Request[edit]

{{helpme}} I am looking for general guidance about how two editors can/should proceed after they have talked through their contrary opinions regarding a certain edit. I've read some "debates" (not including me) behind other articles and it seems that folks go back and forth forever, reverting reversions of reversions ... Rather than to spend time doing that, is there a quick resource by which a senior editor will take a look at the dispute and resolve it with finality? If you could point to me toward a source for that, I'd appreciate it. I've read Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents but as I understand it the scope of that page seems to be restricted to reporting allegedly egregious conduct, none of which I've encountered. My situation involves two guys disagreeing. I am completely certain that he is wrong, and he views my position similarly. Thanks for any direction you suggest. Stwiso (talk) 21:53, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

See WP:Dispute resolution. JohnCD (talk) 22:01, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
Thanks, looks like its right on point Stwiso (talk) 22:49, 27 July 2010 (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.
