Hey, it's my pleasure, Tom. I always enjoy your pieces.
Hi, Tom. Per the B/R stylebook, any quoted material has to be properly attributed to the person providing the information by way of a citation and/or link. Always glad to help.
You're welcome, Tom! Always glad to help.
Hi, Tom. Thanks for following up. I believe that at the time I was editing it, we were still within the 24-hour mark.
No worries, Tom. For what it's worth, I just had to add "www." in each URL. Keep up the good work.
You got it, Tom! I'm here to help. Keep on writing!
Yeah you're completely correct Tom, sorry. I've just started the job and am still getting to grips with the standards! Thanks for that and my sincerest apologies.
Thanks for the clarification, Tom :)
Will Tom Urtz Jr. ask a question in his title that he doesn't answer rhetorically?
Sure thing, Tom. Where age constructions are concerned, only post-noun adjective phrases ("23 years old") are not hyphenated. Nouns ("the 23-year-old") and pre-noun adjective phrases ("the 23-year-old blueliner") are hyphenated.
