Canadian spelling[edit]

Happy new year, my friend. Thank you for this edit. Canada uses w:Canadian spelling, which is a mix of British and US spelling. In the case of the edit you reverted, you were correct: all of the words are spelled the British way in Canada, although this is not always true. We use US spellings for the "-ize" words, and for some others like "tire" and "program". Regards, Ground Zero (talk) 02:34, 4 January 2021 (UTC)

  • may we all have a happy one, GZ! Thanks for this update, I was really unaware about this. Cheers, --Ibaman (talk) 19:07, 4 January 2021 (UTC)

Australian protection[edit]

I see that you protected Australia for more than a week. I cannot see any significant amount of reverts in the newer edits, but rather quite many edits to improve the article – i.e. it is not stable either. Is there some specific reason? I think we should welcome Australian editors, and I think there might be a chance to get more of them with the recent activity by a few. Is there something that I have missed? –LPfi (talk) 14:54, 5 March 2021 (UTC)

  • yeah, an anonymous IP number was keen on changing "Uluru" to "Ayers Rock", I know the modus operandi and opted to prevent further changes rather than engaging in discussion. I hit "one week" specifically, how odd that it came differently. That's what happened. I won't mind having the article de-protected as of this moment. Ibaman (talk) 16:19, 5 March 2021 (UTC)
    • OK, thanks for the explanation. I de-protect it now and hope the person won't insist. –LPfi (talk) 19:45, 5 March 2021 (UTC)

FYI on spambots[edit]

Please have a look at User talk:Ikan Kekek#Spambots, because that thread bears on one of your moderation decisions.

All the best,
