Here's wishing you a belated welcome to Wikipedia, TheFreeWorld. I see that you've already been around a while and wanted to thank you for your contributions. Though you seem to have been successful in finding your way around, you may benefit from following some of the links below, which help editors get the most out of Wikipedia:

Also, when you post on talk pages you should sign your name using four tildes (~~~~); that should automatically produce your username and the date after your post.

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! If you have any questions, feel free to leave me a message on my talk page, consult Wikipedia:Questions, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and ask your question there.

National varieties of English[edit]

Information icon In a recent edit to the page Scramble for Africa, you changed one or more words or styles from one national variety of English to another. Because Wikipedia has readers from all over the world, our policy is to respect national varieties of English in Wikipedia articles.

For a subject exclusively related to the United Kingdom (for example, a famous British person), use British English. For something related to the United States in the same way, use American English. For something related to India, use Indian English. For something related to another English-speaking country, such as Canada, Australia, or New Zealand, use the variety of English used there. For an international topic, use the form of English that the original author used.

In view of that, please don't change articles from one version of English to another, even if you don't normally use the version in which the article is written. Respect other people's versions of English. They, in turn, should respect yours. Other general guidelines on how Wikipedia articles are written can be found in the Manual of Style. If you have any questions about this, you can ask me on my talk page or visit the help desk. Thank you. Chris Troutman (talk) 20:36, 14 January 2017 (UTC)

February 2017[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Iryna Harpy. I noticed that you recently removed some content from Denial of the Holodomor without adequately explaining why. In the future, it would be helpful to others if you described your changes to Wikipedia with an accurate edit summary. If this was a mistake, don't worry; the removed content has been restored. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks.

Please be sure to provide a summary of every edit you make, even if you write only the briefest of summaries. The summaries are very helpful to people browsing an article's history.

Edit summary content is visible in:

Please use the edit summary to explain your reasoning for the edit, or a summary of what the edit changes. You can give yourself a reminder to add an edit summary by setting Preferences → Editing → check Prompt me when entering a blank edit summary. Thanks! 220 of Borg 05:47, 6 February 2017 (UTC)

Manual of Style[edit]

I recently left you a rather obnoxious warning message for editing against the Manual of Style when I was, in fact, wrong about the guideline and you were right. I have reverted myself but I wanted to apologize anyway, since you may notice the message removal. --Spike Wilbury (talk) 11:04, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

No need to "fix" redirects[edit]

Hi, I noticed you changing links to the Second World War to World War II. There is no need to do this, and in fact the practice is discouraged. See WP:NOTBROKEN for more information. DuncanHill (talk) 11:22, 9 May 2018 (UTC)

Need to engage with others[edit]

pls read over WP:NOTHERE = Little or no interest in working collaboratively.--Moxy (talk) 12:32, 28 July 2018 (UTC)
