Hello, Fellow de-orphaner![edit]

Nuvola filesystems folder home.svg

I noticed you've been helping out trying to de-orphan the vast number of orphaned articles out there, and I'd like to say that we really appreciate your help. You might want to consider adding your name to the list of participants in WikiProject Orphanage, the WikiProject concerned with de-orphaning articles.

Here are some things you might want to do to get even more involved:

  1. Read the Wikipedia:Orphan page, especially the section marked "Criteria". The page contains a lot of good advice on de-orphaning, as well as the standard procedures we are using to de-orphan articles.
  2. Look at {{Orphan}}, and {{Multiple issues}} closely and make sure you know how to use them correctly. (It's not difficult, but it is easy to screw up. Trust me, I have.)
  3. Keep de-orphaning! Category:Orphaned articles contains all orphaned articles organized by month and there is a large backlog we need to clear out so we appreciate any help we can get.
You may have already known all of this, in which case sorry for the spam! Either way, Let me know if there's any way I can help you contribute more to the project. Thanks again!
