Here are some useful tips to ease you into the Wikipedia experience:
- First, take a look at the Wikipedia Tutorial, and perhaps dabble a bit in the test area.
- When you have some free time, take a look at the Manual of Style and Policies and Guidelines. They can come in very handy!
- Learn about some of the Wikipedia landmarks by trying our Wikipedia scavenger hunt!
- If you need any help, feel free to post a question at the Help Desk
- Wikipedia has a vibrant community of editors. The village pump is a great place to see the goings on.
- Remember to use a neutral point of view!
- Explore, be bold in editing pages, and, most importantly, have fun!
Also, here are some odds and ends that I find useful from time to time:
Feel free to ask me anything the links and talk pages don't answer. You can most easily reach me by posting on my talk page.
You can sign your name on any page by typing 4 tildes, likes this: ~~~~.
Greetings from the MCB WikiProject!
Look, I have tried to be nice and just archive your endless posting, but I am getting tired of it. I do not quite know how to get it through your mind that nothing you can say or do will convince any administrator to move the page back. It is like you are willfully ignoring me.
In any case, I am formally warning you to stop posting long comments about how "obvious" it is that calling the country Macedonia is wrong and how much of an injustice it is that Wikipedia is obstructing The Truth™. Such posts will not do anything except create more totally pointless flame-wars, which believe me, we already have more than enough. You had an opportunity to post your evidence to the Arbitration case, but you declined to do this, so do not continue posting inflammatory comments to Talk:Macedonia.

Your recent edits
Hi there. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. If you can't type the tilde character, you should click on the signature button located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your name and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you! --SineBot (talk) 20:00, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

Improving Immunology Articles
Hi Braindamaged, I am simply an editor who thinks some of the immunology articles on Wikipedia are far from complete and the quality can be easily improved. I'd love to do it all by myself, but it'd be even better to do it in a team, to be more efficient as well as to get a wider viewpoints (from the medical, molecular and cellular viewpoints for example). If you are interested, please go to here and just start editing. The purpose of the page (it's a new page) is simply to get everyone together and collaborate, as to ensure there's editors for different topics. I look forward to working with you soon, any help would be greatly appreciated. 00:37, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
