Ten odd things about me[edit]

As you can see, having brushed against notability for much of my life, I have successfully managed to avoid it for myself!

And now?[edit]

I work as a lecturer and researcher in psychology at the University of Hull in Yorkshire, England. Despite my first name, I am in fact male! So far most of my edits seem to have involved Neopaganism or military history. I have made major revisions to the Wicca article, removing large chunks of it out into sub-pages so as to drastically shorten it. I do not have as much time for main space editing as I would like, so in small chunks of free time I contribute to discussion of articles for deletion and candidates for adminship as well as doing some new page patrolling. I have an account at Meta here.

Another Tip of the moment...

Using templates

Templates are a type of page that contain boilerplate text that is intended to be displayed on more than one page in Wikipedia.

This Tip of the day box is an example of a template (there are several versions actually), and besides being displayed here it is displayed on many userpages as well.

Template names start with the prefix "Template:" followed by the page name. The main version of the template you are reading right now is called "Template:totd".

To display a template on a page, go to the target page, click "edit", and add the template's name (with or without the prefix) surrounded by double curly brackets to the page's source text. (The text you see in the edit box when you click edit this page is called "source text", because it is a lot like programming code, which is called "source code").

Including a template on a page in this way is called "transclusion". Here's an example:

To include the Template:Philosophy topics, type this at the end of the philosophy article you wish to place it on::

{{Philosophy topics}}

To add this template to your user page, use {{Totd-random}}.
