Sorry for the belated welcome, but the cookies are still warm!  

Here's wishing you a belated welcome to Wikipedia, Challenger l. I see that you've already been around a while and wanted to thank you for your contributions. Though you seem to have been successful in finding your way around, you may benefit from following some of the links below, which help editors get the most out of Wikipedia:

Also, when you post on talk pages you should sign your name using four tildes (~~~~); that should automatically produce your username and the date after your post.

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! If you have any questions, feel free to leave me a message on my talk page, consult Wikipedia:Questions, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and ask your question there.

Citing interviewsEdit

This help request has been answered. If you need more help, you can ask another question on your talk page, contact the responding user(s) directly on their user talk page, or consider visiting the Teahouse.

How do I properly cite a source that's a recorded interview on video, or such?

For non-controversial information, you use {{Cite interview}} for inline citations.
If it might be controversial or challenged, you'll need to use a more balanced source. --I dream of horses @ 08:42, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
Thank you! I was wondering how to do this. It was something that involved information that was directly from a lengthy TV interview. Challenger l (talk) 10:55, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
No problem. :-) --I dream of horses If you reply here, please leave me a {{Talkback}} message on my talk page. @ 20:34, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

Victor J. Stenger - citation for deathEdit

Thanks for your recent changes to Stenger's article. However, it is vital first to establish whether he has died, and nobody has been able to provide a reference to support this. Please either provide such a reference or revert your changes until such a reference is found. --Gronk Oz (talk) 00:39, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

GamerGate Discretionary sanctions noticeEdit

  Please carefully read this information:

The Arbitration Committee has authorised discretionary sanctions to be used for pages regarding all edits about, and all pages related to, (a) GamerGate, (b) any gender-related dispute or controversy, (c) people associated with (a) or (b), all broadly construed, a topic which you have edited. The Committee's decision is here.

Discretionary sanctions is a system of conduct regulation designed to minimize disruption to controversial topics. This means uninvolved administrators can impose sanctions for edits relating to the topic that do not adhere to the purpose of Wikipedia, our standards of behavior, or relevant policies. Administrators may impose sanctions such as editing restrictions, bans, or blocks. This message is to notify you sanctions are authorised for the topic you are editing. Before continuing to edit this topic, please familiarise yourself with the discretionary sanctions system. Don't hesitate to contact me or another editor if you have any questions.

This message is informational only and does not imply misconduct regarding your contributions to date.

Disambiguation link notification for January 29Edit

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of sushi and sashimi ingredients, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Beltfish. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
