Welcome!Edit

Face-smile.svgWelcome Mrandrew16!

Now that you've joined Wikipedia, there are 36,757,364 registered users!
Hello, Mrandrew16. Welcome to Wikipedia and thank you for your contributions! I'm W.carter, one of the other editors here, and I hope you decide to stay and help contribute to this amazing repository of knowledge.
Some pages of helpful information to get you started:
    Introduction to Wikipedia
    The five pillars of Wikipedia
    Editing tutorial
    How to edit a page
    Simplified Manual of Style
    The basics of Wikicode
    How to develop an article
    How to create an article
    Help pages
    What Wikipedia is not
Some common sense Dos and Don'ts:
    Do be bold
    Do assume good faith
    Do be civil
    Do keep cool!
    Do maintain a neutral point of view
    Don't spam
    Don't infringe copyright
    Don't edit where you have a conflict of interest
    Don't commit vandalism
    Don't get blocked
If you need further help, you can:
    Ask a question
or you can:
    Get help at the Teahouse
or even:
    Ask an experienced editor to "adopt" you

Alternatively, leave me a message at my talk page or type {{helpme}} here on your talk page, and someone will try to help.

There are many ways you can contribute to Wikipedia. Here are a few ideas:
    Fight vandalism
    Be a WikiFairy or a WikiGnome
    Help contribute to articles
           
    Perform maintenance tasks
    Become a member of a project that interests you
    Help design new templates

Remember to always sign your posts on talk pages. You can do this either by clicking on the   button on the edit toolbar or by typing four tildes (~~~~) at the end of your post. This will automatically insert your signature, a link to this (your talk) page, and a timestamp.

The best way to learn about something is to experience it. Explore, learn, contribute, and don't forget to have some fun!
To get some practice editing you can use a sandbox. You can create your own private sandbox for use any time. Perfect for working on bigger projects. Then for easy access in the future, you can put {{My sandbox}} on your user page. By the way, seeing as you haven't created a user page yet, simply click here to start it.

How to alert other editorsEdit

When someone is posting on your talk page you get an automatic notification. That notification is a red square followed by a long yellow box (for most browsers and settings). In all other cases you have to alert the other editor in some way, either by "ping" or by mentioning them in a link. This will result in a just the red box notification on that users pages. So even if you respond on your talk page you still have to alert the editor you are addressing. If you want to get hold of me you write {{ping|W.carter}} resulting in @W.carter: or [[User:W.carter|W.carter]] resulting in W.carter and sign with the four "squiggles" ~~~~ at the end and hit "Save". There are some more, but these are the basics. And when you ask something on someone's talk page, you also create a new section so your question don't get entangled in some other conversation. If you are having a conversation with another user on some page, it is also customary to add that page to your Watchlist in case someone in the discussion forgets to alert.

The policy is to leave an answer on the same page as the question, keep the conversation intact unless there is some reason for moving it elsewhere. Like complicated questions at the Teahouse can be continued on the appropriate talk page. Best, w.carter-Talk 18:14, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 2Edit

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Toni Nadal, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Grand Slam and Roland Garros. 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.

Unification of country codesEdit

Dear Cordless Larry, Fyunck(click) Excirial and other tennis editors! I would like to draw your attention to the following striking and obvious deviation which I experienced during editing and/or uploading data to the historical lists of champions/winners etc. of any Grand Slam tournaments. The unification and using of the certain country codes does not seem to follow any rules and is not standardized. E.g. if Wikipedia is using the ISO/IOC code for Ilie Nastase as ROM which was applied btw 1956–1960, 1972–2006, why is used ROU for Virginia Ruzici or Florenta Mihai in the same era? Not to mention the fact that Nastase's nationality was marked ROU in the list of the finals/champions, and his nationality was listed as ROM among the countries of champions... All three Romanian players' active careers were in the same era with the different Romanian country code? I consider it is something undoubtedly wrong. I appreciate if any of You can clarify this and resolve this contradiction. Thank You! --Mrandrew16 (talk) 23:42, 15 July 2019 (UTC)
