December 2012[edit]

Hello, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. I noticed that you recently added commentary to an article, ITunes. While Wikipedia welcomes editors' opinions on an article and how it could be changed, these comments are more appropriate for the article's accompanying talk page. If you post your comments there, other editors working on the same article will notice and respond to them, and your comments will not disrupt the flow of the article. However, keep in mind that even on the talk page of an article, you should limit your discussion to improving the article. Article talk pages are not the place to discuss opinions of the subject of articles, nor are such pages a forum. Thank you. GSK 04:29, 4 December 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for February 11[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Vera Drake, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Liz White and Alex Kelly (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.

Logical quotation and serial commas[edit]

Hello, thanks for your edits to Vera Drake. While your changes of the position of quotation marks in that article were generally fine, please note that Wikipedia uses logical quotation, so whether the punctuation is inside or outside the quotes depends on whether it is part of the quoted text. I've reverted your edit to The 51st State for that reason. Also, Wikipedia takes no official position on serial commas as long as each article is consistent about their use, but I don't think there's any need to revert your edit to Stronger (Kelly Clarkson album).

Kula Shaker discography[edit]

On 3 February 2014 you added information about Kula Shaker's compilation album "Kollected" but stated within the article itself that you didn't know how to format it correctly. These comments are better placed in the talk section where other users can help you. Alternatively, you can read the help section. Danielklein (talk) 22:36, 16 March 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for June 18[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Pat Buchanan, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page John McLaughlin (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.

A barnstar for you![edit]

Thanks for adding the Oxford comma. It drives me crazy when people don't use it :) Powermugu (talk) 07:13, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

"Oxford commas"[edit]

Please stop adding so-called "Oxford commas" to articles on British and Australian subjects. This form of punctuation is not standard in these forms of English. In these countries, especially in Australia, commas are normally only used before an "and" if needed for grammatical clarity. Thank you. Anglicanus (talk) 08:06, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
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.

Oxford Comma[edit]

Hi. Please take more care over addition of "Oxford Commas" to articles. These are not commonly used in British English, so there is no requirement for adding them to articles where the subject is primarily British\UK associated, per guideline WP:ENGVAR. There is also no preference for the Oxford Comma in Wikipedia's Manual of Style, as explained here. Why do you feel the need to introduce it to articles without it? Thanks. --Escape Orbit (Talk) 20:20, 10 January 2016 (UTC)
