Welcome to Wikipedia!Edit
Hello, Buaidh/Archive 2006, and welcome to Wikipedia! I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few good links for newcomers:
- The five pillars of Wikipedia
- How to edit a page
- Help pages
- How to write a great article
- Manual of Style
I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian!
When you contribute on talk pages or in other areas, it is important to sign your posts by typing four tildes ( Seicer (talk) (contribs) 17:09, 20 November 2006 (UTC)); this will automatically produce your name and the date.
Just so you know, the reason that those articles say "U.S. state" in their introductions is not everyone who reads Wikipedia lives in the United States and might need clarification as to the location. So you might want to rethink some of your edits. Katr67 00:06, 21 November 2006 (UTC)
Please get into the habit of using edit summaries. Edit summaries are particularly important in situations such as your recent edit to List of city nicknames in the United States, in which you removed a large amount of content without providing an edit summary. Yes, I was able to use the edit history to figure out that you were doing something very worthwhile, but it would have taken me and other contributors less time to figure things out (and I would be in a sunnier disposition right now) if you had provided an explanation in an edit summary.
There is a setting in "my preferences" (look under "Editing") to "Prompt me when entering a blank edit summary." I use that setting to help make sure that I provide summaries. I suggest that you do the same. --Orlady (talk) 17:23, 21 March 2008 (UTC)
Two articles about the same topicEdit
I will create a new map illustrating Cheyenne, WY and related areas. Remove current map if you haven't already done so and I'll upload one tomorrow.
Category added to Robert McHenryEdit
Buaidh, regarding the category you added to Robert McHenry, categories should not be added to articles about living people unless the justification for this is clear in the article text and this has been sourced. I've left it in, but if you can't supply a source for this, it will have to be removed (WP:LIVING has further details). Alan Pascoe 22:00, 27 December 2006 (UTC)
