Welcome[edit]

Hello, Ctufarolo and welcome to Wikipedia! It appears you are participating in a class project. If you haven't done so already, we encourage you to go through our training for students.

Go through our online training for students.

If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Questions, ask me on my talk page, or ask your question on this page and then place {{Helpme}} before the question. Please also read this helpful advice for students.

Before you create an article, make sure you understand what kind of articles are accepted here. Remember: Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, and while many topics are encyclopedic, some things are not.

Your instructor or professor may wish to set up a course page, if your class doesn't already have one. It is highly recommended that you place this text: {{Educational assignment}} on the talk page of any articles you are working on as part of your Wikipedia-related course assignment. This will let other editors know this article is a subject of an educational assignment and aid your communication with them.

We hope you like it here and encourage you to stay even after your assignment is finished! Jprg1966 (talk) 22:02, 14 January 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Natalie Smith Henry[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Natalie Smith Henry requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. BiH (talk) 20:41, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

Sorry about that, Chelsea. We have some aggressive nominators here. I've declined the deletion nomination on your article. I hope you can add more content about Natalie Smith Henry soon. -- Y not? 21:34, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for February 14[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Natalie Smith Henry, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Malvern High School (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

BBC mention[edit]

You are in a story on the BBC news site! http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-26828726 --Marjaliisa (talk) 00:37, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

Great work on the Natalie Smith Henry article and for helping highlight an important Wikipedia editing issue. Aw1805 (talk) 03:49, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

I also read the BBC article today and checked out your article as a result. Great work! --Andrewssi2 (talk) 06:24, 8 April 2014 (UTC)
Hello Chelsea: I just read the BBC article online on the BBC app on my I-Phone. Congratulations and welcome to Wikipedia!!
As a 74-year old Englishman, longtime a resident in the US, I've been a Wiki editor since I retired in 2005 (and am glad that I didn't discover it when I was working, since it can become compulsive!). I write about opera and belong to the WP:WikiProject Opera group which is led by User:Voceditenore (who you might think is a man with a "name" like that (given that it means "voice of a tenor" or "tenor voice"), but it's actually a woman who loves the tenor voice! So there may be more female editors out there than it appears!!
Since opera articles cover female as well as male singers - and also women composers - last year, with encouragement from our leader to expand certain areas, I did a lot of work on the Ethel Smythe article, and have recently done some expansion and reorganization of the Renee Fleming and Joyce DiDonato article, both of whom are my favourite opera singers right now!
Don't be put off by what sometimes looks like arbitrary revisions or changes - and be bold! Feel free to contact me via my "Talk" page if you need any help on anything. From John in Santa Fe, who writes as Viva-Verdi (talk) 13:57, 8 April 2014 (UTC).
I read the article, too. Thank you for your work, Ctufarolo, both on and off-wiki, and congratulations! Acalamari 19:55, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

A cup of tea for you![edit]

Meissen-teacup pinkrose01.jpg I spotted your great work, too! Well done, and I hope you're encouraging other girls/women to join in too. Cheers. -- Trevj (talk · contribs) 19:27, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
