If an article needs references but you are unable to find them yourself, you can tag the article with the templates {{unreferenced}} or {{Primarysources}}. It is often more useful to indicate specific statements that need references, by tagging those statements with {{fact}}, which can be placed in the same place you would place an inline reference.

• Talk to this hand:

• {{Citation needed}} = {{fact}}
• {{todo}}
• {{Book reference | Author = [[]] | Title = | Publisher= Macmillan | Year = | ID = }}
• <tt>typewriter font</tt> typewriter font
• <code>code font</code> code font
• $\sum_{n=0}^\infty \frac{x^n}{n!}$$\sum_{n=0}^\infty \frac{x^n}{n!}$
• Superscript: x<sup>2</sup> or x &s u p 2; x2 or x²
• & nbsp; - non-breaking space (rm space!!)
• <br clear="all"> - to make sure tables etc don't overlap
• ;Bold :Indented next line

Hi, welcome to Wikipedia! We're glad you've decided to help out here--the grammar errors just don't stop coming. Anyway, if you have any questions about editing, you might want to check out Wikipedia:Tutorial or Wikipedia:FAQ, or ask questions at the Wikipedia:Help desk. Good luck, and happy editing!

Welcome to the Wikipedia

Here are some links I find useful

Feel free to ask me anything the links and talk pages don't answer. You can sign your name by typing 4 tildes, likes this: ~~~~.

I saw that you appreciate policy links, so I thought I'd give you my standard intro. Cheers, Sam [Spade] 20:03, 17 Jun 2004 (UTC)

no trouble

I had that on hand, I provide it to new users. I saw you'd already been greeted, but you showed such enthusiasm for policy I felt giving you my welcome couldn't possibly hurt. I agree that the policy rox. Some of the users are expletives, and some of the descisions made by democracy (rather than by concensus) suck, but the policies are generally quite good. Glad to have ya, Sam [Spade] 20:41, 17 Jun 2004 (UTC)

Correcting Grammatical Errors

If you are interested in correcting grammatical errors, please help in fixing all of the usages of fly common names (for that matter, usages of all insect common names). The common name for Tabanus sp. is "horse fly" not horsefly or horse-fly. This standard applies to 100% of true fly (Diptera) names and the converse applies to 100% of non-Diptera (ex. dragonfly, sawfly, scorpionfly, whitefly, firefly, etc.)

In addition, common names should be redirected to their appropriate scientific taxanomic level (ex. long-legged flyDolichopodidae {curently no page}; house flyMusca domestica {currently Musca domestica is directed to the incorrect version of house fly, "housefly"}; flyDiptera {right now they are two separate pages}.
