To further enhance your wiki-browsing skills, learn about other navigation tools such as our Index of Contents, "All pages" tool and "What links here" tool. If you find two pages are related but do not link to each other, consider adding an internal link in the "See also" section or submit a link by e-mailing us at

Hi SMarie,

Have you had a chance to read this? It is posted on the "talk" page of the California Proposition 7 (2008) article. It's okay with me if you don't want to talk over your edits or reversions (where you delete information that others have placed in the article) on the article's talk page; it's up to you how you want to be seen as an editor. But, this does lead to a situation where others will tend to start treating you the same way; namely, just deleting your contributions without discussion. Trying to get other contributors to see your point of view--why you think something should be deleted, for example, is the type of behavior that often leads to a better article.
