Explaining[edit]

I patrolled your page. I went through the enormously-backlogged list of newly-created pages and confirmed that your page was okay: not spam, not an attack page, not a copyright violation, not any of the other reasons for which I would delete someone's page without asking. Then I clicked "patrolled" to remove it from the list of "pages that have not yet been patrolled", and moved on to the next entry. That's all.

"s" following possessives of proper names ending in s[edit]

Hi, the current correct usage for possessive proper names ending in "s" is to include the possessive s after the apostrophe. This has been the case for the past 20 or so years. Even though there are those that still do not use this format (like the serial comma, it has become somewhat optional), the possessive s is the preferred form, even for names like Jesus, Moses, Judas, etc. I'm letting you know so you don't end up wasting your time. I'm going to revert your changes to Jesus Christ Superstar. Thanks. If there's any clarification needed, discuss on that Talk page. Thanks, and happy editing!

While the "s" usually follows the apostrophe in most situations involving apostrophized possessives, there should be an exception in this situation. For instance, if the word already has a plural "s" before it becomes possessive, then when turned into a possessive, the apostrophe will come after the "...s" that was already on the word. If the word is singular, but already ends in an "...s" before it becomes a possessive, then, when turned into a possessive, the apostrophe comes after the "s." This is how it should look:
  • Mr. Fullerton's watch (regular singular possessive)
  • The Fullertons' car (i.e. the family--plural possessive)
  • James' car (possessive for singular word already has an "s" at the end)
It depends on the situation. Changes in placement of the apostrophe (for possessives) are done so that we can be clear what we mean. Garagepunk66 (talk) 21:04, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
Your argument would have to be taken up with Softlavender. I had done the edits s/he referred to according to the guidelines you suggest - that's the way I have always understood this situation. Softlavender suggests otherwise and appears to have the cred to back up the claim. Makes no difference to me either way. I just want to do things correctly and avoid unnecessary work during editing. Thanks for your input.THX1136 (talk) 01:35, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

Ultimate Spinach[edit]

Hi, you discussed this band awhile ago on its talk page, citing how much improvement it needed. I wanted you to know I did my best to rewrite it. I was wondering, if you have time of course, if you could read it and tell me if you are satisfied with its additions. I thought they deserved a better article and I gave an effort to do so, so hopefully you will like some of it.TheGracefulSlick (talk) 23:31, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

I'm glad you like the improvements. I always liked the band and thought it was a shame that the article did not equate to their importance. Thanks for fixing the grammatical errors, my mistake.TheGracefulSlick (talk) 23:21, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
