Thanks for your help with Spinoza[edit]

You're a good editor! Good catch on the grammar!--Tomwsulcer (talk) 18:55, 9 September 2009 (UTC)

Thanks![edit]

Great catches on Jimmy Wales, I appreciate it!  Skomorokh  07:35, 29 December 2009 (UTC)

sporange[edit]

The term sporange is dated. It used to be used in the literature, but isn't used any longer. You can refer to the sporange entry on Wiktionary for supporting quotations. However, as the term is indeed dated, I certainly agree that it is not needed as an alternative word form in the sporangium article. --EncycloPetey (talk) 06:40, 21 January 2012 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

How can you have edited here for so long, yet have no barnstar? This is long overdue for all your diligent efforts! -- EncycloPetey (talk) 06:43, 21 January 2012 (UTC)

2011 Norway attacks[edit]

Great edits and great edit summaries, keep them coming. These were not minor edits though, please don't mark such edits as minor. Let me know if you need any help. --John (talk) 21:40, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for the kind words, and for the helpful link. I have read the minor-edits page, and I'll keep it in mind. TypoBoy (talk) 21:53, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

Dangling modifier[edit]

TB, nice catch on this fix! Thanks. --76.189.98.15 (talk) 02:05, 17 July 2012 (UTC)

Sechele I[edit]

Thanks for the fix. Quite right, but as for the dad that you mention in your edit summary...... you have left me wondering. Amandajm (talk) 07:08, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

I was thinking of this Lonely Island song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gAYL5H46QnQ . I suppose I should not assume that nobody ever reads the edit summaries! TypoBoy (talk) 11:47, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

KAL 007: I believe it was a (rare) correct use of comprise, and it is less wordy. Michaelmalak (talk) 19:14, 1 September 2013 (UTC)

Oh look: Merriam-Webster agrees that yours is a valid meaning, and says objections to it (like mine) are wrong.

State name removals[edit]

Why are you removing state names from articles, as you did here? I see nothing in the cited guideline to support that. Gatoclass (talk) 07:28, 4 April 2015 (UTC)

The linked guideline says, "This page describes conventions for determining the titles of Wikipedia articles on places and for the use of place names in Wikipedia articles. [ . . . ] Cities listed in the AP Stylebook as not requiring the state modifier in newspaper articles have their articles named City unless they are not the primary or only topic for that name. [ . . . ] The cities listed by the AP are Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Honolulu, Houston, Indianapolis, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, New Orleans, New York City, Oklahoma City, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, Salt Lake City, San Antonio, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington, D.C.." TypoBoy (talk) 12:07, 4 April 2015 (UTC)
If this were an Associated Press article about USS Advance, it would be required to say "she was decommissioned at Philadelphia", rather than "she was decommissioned at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania". Wikipedia:naming conventions (geographic names) tells Wikipedia contributors to do the same (though it is a guideline, so Wikipedia contributors, unlike AP writers, are not required to use that style). TypoBoy (talk) 12:27, 4 April 2015 (UTC)
This blog post discusses the AP Stylebook's directions for naming cities. TypoBoy (talk) 12:36, 4 April 2015 (UTC)
I think you are labouring under a misapprehension here. The section in the guideline dealing with naming American cities is referring to the correct disambiguation method in article titles, not to preferred usage in main body text. Gatoclass (talk) 12:58, 4 April 2015 (UTC)
To me, it seems clear that that guideline covers both the names of articles and the use of place names in articles. (After all, the first sentence of the lead is, "This page describes conventions for determining the titles of Wikipedia articles on places and for the use of place names in Wikipedia articles.") But the language in the section about U.S. cities is indeed about article names.
I have created a new discussion about this at Wikipedia talk:naming conventions (geographic names)#U.S. city names in the text of articles. Let's talk about it there. Naturally, I'll wait for the outcome of that conversation before making any more edits like this. TypoBoy (talk) 21:55, 4 April 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. Gatoclass (talk) 03:58, 5 April 2015 (UTC)

Don't let it shatter your sense of typo-self-worth...[edit]

...and I'm sure it will not: There's an errer, sort of a typographical one, in your excellent rewrite of the Displacement article. I don't remember the exact location, but the words "in fresh" are in there twice in a row at the end of a sentence a sentence. Other than that, it's perfect.  ;-) Lou Sander (talk) 02:11, 18 April 2015 (UTC)
