Here are some tasks awaiting attention:

County Board Member vs County Supervisor vs County CommissionerEdit

In Illinois there is a difference between a county board member, a county supervisor and a county commissioner. I have changed categories to distinguish this. A county board member is a member of a county board in a township form of government. They are elected from districts. Their chairs are also board members, they merely preside over meetings and act as a first among equals. A county commissioners only exist in the sixteen counties with a county commission form of government. Cook County Commissioners take this title, but since they are a separate category I didn't bother changing their category. County supervisors date to the day before Illinois changed how it elected county legislators to a first past the post. It was basically a committee of township supervisors.

Featured Article Review for Shimer CollegeEdit

I have nominated Shimer College for a featured article review here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets featured article criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks. If substantial concerns are not addressed during the review period, the article will be moved to the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Delist" the article's featured status. The instructions for the review process are here.

Illinois' or Illinois'sEdit

Not a native Illinoisan, but thought this would be the most appropriate place to ask this question. The possessive form of Illinois is Illinois', no? Saw a few articles titled "Illinois's..." and thought I'd inquire to double check before editing. Thanks. --PerpetuityGrat (talk) 02:34, 22 September 2021 (UTC)

Nvm, ignore this. --PerpetuityGrat (talk) 03:12, 23 September 2021 (UTC)

My name is Yoshikage KiraEdit

My name is Yoshikage Kira. I’m 33 years old. My house is in the northeast section of Morioh, where all the villas are, and I am not married. I work as an employee for the Kame Yu department stores, and I get home every day by 8 PM at the latest. I don’t smoke, but I occasionally drink. I’m in bed by 11 PM, and make sure I get eight hours of sleep, no matter what. After having a glass of warm milk and doing about twenty minutes of stretches before going to bed, I usually have no problems sleeping until morning. Just like a baby, I wake up without any fatigue or stress in the morning.

I was told there were no issues at my last check-up. I’m trying to explain that I’m a person who wishes to live a very quiet life. I take care not to trouble myself with any enemies, like winning and losing, that would cause me to lose sleep at night. That is how I deal with society, and I know that is what brings me happiness. Although, if I were to fight I wouldn’t lose to anyone. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 209.174.227.146 (talk) 16:57, 3 December 2021 (UTC)
