My apologies for the belated response, but, as I'm sure you probably noticed, my activity on this site has been little to none for almost a year now. If I may say so, I'm happy to report that, thanks to time and effort I devoted to my school work and community involvement, I have lately been awarded a plethora of scholarships and financial aid to further my education into college. :) My only regret is that I have not been able to contribute much here as a result. I've been aware of the conflict you've been having with the powers-that-be here, though, for a while now, and I am truly sorry it has all come down to this. :( I have no doubt in my mind that you conducted yourself accordingly as your own conscience guided you, and I see nothing in your actions that you should feel shame for. Evidently, you feel the same way. :) I may not have been as active here as I was once, but even I recognized the trouble brewing within this community back then. I am sad to see you go. You are one of many I heavily collaborated with over the years on projects for this encyclopedia who have since been run off. This reflects badly on the encyclopedia itself to be responsible for the loss of so many clearly qualified members. I have contemplated several times on returning to my formerly frequent contributions here; this, and several similar scenarios with a similar outcome, have convinced me to think otherwise. To paraphrase Jesus Himself, "What is important is that you follow the spirit of the Law, not the letter." The lack of common sense and good naturedness amongst editors here in regards to the guidelines is proving detrimental to the Encyclopedia itself, and, despite what you or I or anyone else does to combat it, will only continue. Maybe it's best that you are leaving, so that you don't have to be a part of it — a cog in the machine. =/ You aren't the first to leave because of something like this, and you definitely won't be the last. :(
But it has been fun with you, my friend. I'll admit that. :) I've enjoyed collaborating with you, and I wish you the best on your departure. Thanks for being so willing to collaborate with me in return; you've really helped me out around here, Ted! Goodbye, and God Bless Your Life!! :) — Cinemaniac (talk • contribs) 21:35, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

Audie Murphy birthday
So I guess his fake DOB got registered in Social Security? (Social Security Death Index) I guess this is possible considering the SS program debuted in 1936... Of course, the way to resolve this would be to see his actual birth certificate which may very well be in existence... that'd be an interesting project! Wikkitywack (talk) 06:57, 6 October 2010 (UTC)
Dispute resolution survey
Dispute Resolution – Survey Invite
Hello Tbrittreid. I am currently conducting a study on the dispute resolution processes on the English Wikipedia, in the hope that the results will help improve these processes in the future. Whether you have used dispute resolution a little or a lot, now we need to know about your experience. The survey takes around five minutes, and the information you provide will not be shared with third parties other than to assist in analyzing the results of the survey. No personally identifiable information will be released.
Please click HERE to participate.
You are receiving this invitation because you have had some activity in dispute resolution over the past year. For more information, please see the associated research page. Steven Zhang DR goes to Wikimania! 01:40, 6 April 2012 (UTC)
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.
