January 2011[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, you may not know that Wikipedia has a Manual of Style that should be followed to maintain a consistent, encyclopedic appearance. Using different styles throughout the encyclopedia, as you did in Degrassi: The Next Generation, makes it harder to read. Please take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. 117Avenue (talk) 23:22, 5 January 2011 (UTC)

Oh, okay! I see, I see. So the "U.S." was wrong according to the Manual of Style why? I'm confused. Is it because the style of the Degrassi page is Canadian English, not American English?Woolfy123 (talk) 23:33, 5 January 2011 (UTC)
Because the latest edition of the Chicago MOS says the use of periods has depreciated, and other forms of English (Degrassi related articles are written in Canadian) do not use periods. 117Avenue (talk) 23:47, 5 January 2011 (UTC)
Okay, that's what I thought. So, even though Chicago MOS decided no one uses periods in "U.S.," on American-English pages, that's still acceptable, even based on the Manual of Style page "In American English, U.S. (with periods) is more common as the standard abbreviation for United States"? I get that Degrassi-related pages are Canadian and therefore use that style of English, thoughWoolfy123 (talk) 23:52, 5 January 2011 (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.

Disambiguation link notification for April 9[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited States of Grace, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page God's Army (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.
