I AM CUTTING way BACK ON MY EDITING FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE
and probably cannot help you Wikipedia-wise if you need it. Please try elsewhere. Thanks!
Let's make a pact, you and me...don't make assumptions about me and I won't make assumptions about you.
I try to think the best about others...so try to think the best about me, OK?!?
Assuming good reasons for our fellow Wikipedia editors' behavior should be the first thing we do BEFORE we reach for the keyboard...
Stating that "Our social policies are not a suicide pact" is not really a decent excuse for any Wikipedian's poor behavior.
And I really hate it when good editors feel they have to leave...I mean, I can understand retiring, but I miss so many people who aren't around any more for one reason or another.
Sometimes?...sometimes I adopt really crappy orphan articles and when others come along and change and/or improve my efforts,
I know I don't "own" the article and I don't edit war about it but it sometimes just breaks my heart.
True Confession: I am not a coder, I am not a computer-person. I do not understand Linux or Flow or liquid threads or almost any aspect of the technical side of Wikipedia...all I know Is that I love words. I love being part of this project. I love making knowledge accessible to people. So I taught myself by cutting & pasting the code from articles and from Wiki-gimmicks that I liked, from pestering people who knew their way around (especially User:Chzz). The high I got from mastering the language and learning how to make things look right?... PRICELESS.

Welcome and introductionEdit

Hi, Shearonink. This is NOT some automated message...it's from a real person. You can talk to me right now. Welcome to Wikipedia! I noticed you've just joined, and wanted to give you a few tips to get you started. If you have any questions, please talk to us. The tips below should help you to get started. Best of luck!  Chzz  ►  22:55, 10 June 2010 (UTC)

 
ようこそ
  • You don't need to read anything - anybody can edit; just go to an article and edit it. Be Bold, but please don't put silly stuff in - it will be removed very quickly, and will annoy people.
  • Ask for help. Talk to us live, or edit this page, put {{helpme}} and describe what help you need. Someone will reply very quickly - usually within a few minutes.
  • Edit existing articles, before you make your own. Look at some subjects that you know about, and see if you can make them a bit better. For example, Wikipedia:Cleanup#2009.
  • When you're ready, read about Your first article. It should be about something well-known, and it will need references.

Good luck with editing; please drop me a line some time on my own talk page.

There's lots of information below. Once again, welcome to the fantastic world of Wikipedia!

Picture of the Day - December 27, 2016Edit

I just liked the photos of this chapel so much I just had to keep them around. All the time.

 
Picture of the Day: The interior of the Romanesque Chapel of St. John in Pürgg, Styria, Austria. The frescos date from the 12th century, probably around 1160, the crucifix from the 11th century.
 
The exterior of that church
