I am aware of Britishisms, and have corrected a few myself, but I believed "period" was simply the proper name for a full stop- and that there wasn't anything exclusively British about that. Just as we say "forward slash" instead of "solidus". Sorry for any misunderstanding, but as a Brit, I've used both. RavenclawDBS (MCKA DevilboyScooby) 17:52, April 19, 2016 (UTC)
