Hello Dialh,

I've noticed that you wish to be adopted by a more experienced user. I could adopt you if you like, take a look at My user page if you are interested, and reply yay or nay here by clicking 'edit this page' and then typing your reply under a suitable heading title ==like this==. Many thanks, and I hope to hear from you soon and be able to answer any questions you may have! Welcome to wikipedia. SGGH 11:01, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

How can I help you then?[edit]

Hey there Dialh,

Though you have already been adopted, if you ever need any advice or help please let me know here. For starters here is your edit count. So, what are you interests? You might want to take a look at some of the wikiprojects we have here, or see Wikipedia:How to edit a page or perhaps Wikipedia:Requested articles. To avoid getting into difficulty early on, might I suggest that you go to your 'my preferences' at the top right of the page, and check 'Prompt me when entering a blank edit summary' under the 'edit' tab, as that will help with your minor edit marking early on! any other questions please don't hesitate to ask any user, SGGH 00:31, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

Editing articles[edit]

If you're refering to fully protected pages, then you can't edit them unless you become an administrator. Semi-protected pages can only be edited by users who have edited over 4 days, and not by anons or newly registered users. Sr13 (T|C) Editor review 01:41, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

Re: Your question(s)[edit]

Just add {{Adoptee|Sr13}} to your userpage. I will do it for you... Sr13 (T|C) Editor review 02:53, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

Depends on the amount of contribs you make to Wikipedia. Sr13 (T|C) Editor review 03:25, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Stewart Bradley[edit]

An editor has nominated Stewart Bradley, an article on which you have worked or that you created, for deletion. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not"). Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Stewart Bradley and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~). You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate. Thank you. Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it.

Wikipedia:Wikipedia Loves Art[edit]

First off, I apologize for the spam. You are receiving this message because you have indicated that you are in Southern California or interested in Southern California topics (either via category or WikiProject).

I would like to invite you to the Los Angeles edition of Wikipedia:Wikipedia Loves Art, a photography scavenger hunt to be held at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) on Saturday, February 28, 2009, from 1:00 to 7:00 PM. All photos are intended for use in Wikipedia articles or on Wikimedia Commons. There will be a prize available for the person who gets the most photos on the list.

If you don't like art, why not come just to meet your fellow Wikipedians. Apparently, we haven't had a meetup in this area since June 2006!

If you are interested in attending, please add your name to Wikipedia:Wikipedia Loves Art#Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Please make a note if you are traveling to the area (train or plane) and need transportation, which can probably be arranged via carpool, but we need time to coordinate. Lodging is as of right now out of scope, but we could discuss that if enough people are interested.

Thank you and I hope to see you there! howcheng {chat} 23:47, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

In addition, to insure verifiability, all biographies should be based on reliable sources. if you were to bring this article up to standards, it would greatly help us with the current 1,336 article backlog.

Turning Ten[edit]

On Saturday January 15, 2011, Wikipedia will turn 10 years and people all over the globe will be celebrating Wikipedia on that day. No event is currently planned for Orange County Wikipedians, so I am leaving a message with some of the currently involved editors listed in "Wikipedians in Orange County, California" and "Wikipedians in Southern California" to see if we might want to meet on that day, lunch, dinner, group photo or other ideas welcomed? I will start a "Turning Ten" discussion thread on my Talk page to see if any interest can be planned for and determined. I am located in Old Towne Orange off the circle.Tinkermen (talk) 21:07, 5 January 2011 (UTC)
