Eponym[edit]

"Undoubtedly" seems pretty strong. If it's being wrongly anywhere applied, you can always...:

Thank you for your suggestion. When you feel an article needs improvement, please feel free to make those changes. Wikipedia is a wiki, so anyone can edit almost any article by simply following the edit this page link at the top. The Wikipedia community encourages you to be bold in updating pages. Don't worry too much about making honest mistakes — they're likely to be found and corrected quickly. If you're not sure how editing works, check out how to edit a page, or use the sandbox to try out your editing skills. New contributors are always welcome. You don't even need to log in (although there are many reasons why you might want to).

The Lord of the Rings film trilogy[edit]

Information.svg In a recent edit, you changed one or more words from one international 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 subjects exclusively related to Britain (for example, a famous British person), use British English. For something related to the United States in the same way, use American English. If it is an international topic, use the same form of English the original author used.

In view of that, please don't change articles from one version of English to the other, even if you don't normally use the version the article is written in. 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 Wikipedia:Manual of Style. If you have any queries about all this, you can ask me on my talk page or you can visit the help desk. Thank you.

Not sure if you were aware or not. Please also provide edit summaries. Alientraveller (talk) 09:25, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

War on "eponymous"[edit]

Greetings, Tomwhite56. I noticed that you've edited several articles to remove the word "eponymous". Here's one example. I'm just curious as to why. Did those articles use the word incorrectly? If so, how? Or, should the word be avoided entirely for some reason? Not a huge deal, I'm just curious. If you reply here, I will see what you say. Thanks.

Wall of Sound (Grateful Dead)[edit]

Alençon/Anjou[edit]

Thanks for suggesting to explain he was formerly Alençon. It was indeed quite odd as it was, because Henri of Anjou is mentioned directly before. Cheers. Buchraeumer (talk) 19:17, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Sharps rifle, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages True Grit and Rooster Cogburn (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
