Thanks for your additions to [[Oman]], but '''please''' don't write in first person on Hitchwiki ("I paid 10 OMR to get to Telegraph Island", "I didn't hitch on the roads in Musandam"). On a community-edited site like a wiki, it is not clear who "I" or "me" is, so we must keep everything in a generalized, third-person tone. Could you please go back to the [[Oman]] article and fix your edits? Thanks! [[User:CRCulver|CRCulver]] ([[User talk:CRCulver|talk]]) 11:33, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

Yes, you should be writing "Tonypro thinks it's likely...", linking to your username page. That's how it's generally done here. Please do this in the future. If other editors see someone repeatedly writing in first-person, they may be more inclined to simply revert the edit entirely; it's not fair to one's fellows here to force them to clean up a mess that one has left, when doing it the right way requires just a few keystrokes more.  [[User:CRCulver|CRCulver]] ([[User talk:CRCulver|talk]]) 17:01, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
