I hope that you, as a new Wikipedian, decide to continue contributing to our project: an encyclopedia of human knowledge that anyone can edit. If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Questions, or you can click here to ask for help on your talk page, and a volunteer should respond shortly. We also have an intuitive guide on editing if you're interested. By the way, please make sure to sign and date your talk page comments with four tildes (~~~~).

March 2017Edit

  Hello, I'm Herostratus. I noticed that you made a comment that didn't seem very civil, so it has been removed. Wikipedia is built on collaboration, so it's one of our core principles to interact with one another in a polite and respectful manner. If you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. Herostratus (talk) 20:04, 20 March 2017 (UTC)

If this is a shared IP address, and you did not make the edits, consider creating an account for yourself or logging in with an existing account so you can avoid further irrelevant notices.


Yes, it says "please do not", not that it is forbidden under penalty of death. If a user has a good faith reason to reopen it, they can (but not just for the sake of doing so.)331dot (talk) 17:20, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

September 2017Edit

  Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to vandalize Wikipedia, as you did at Wikipedia:In the news/Candidates, you may be blocked from editing. 331dot (talk) 09:27, 28 September 2017 (UTC)

See above, if a user has a good faith reason to reopen, they can.
