A new editor on the right path
Because you have made many spot-on edits and other contributions in just a couple of months; your user page is cool--I love the bit about human behavior--so true!; you gave me a great suggestion at the Teahouse; and you have contributed to an article involving my ancestral clan - MacQuarrie (spelling varies). I took that as a Jungian synchronicity thing. Cheers! - Mark D Worthen PsyD 12:28, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

probably in wrong spot but...[edit]

Why did you delete my question on teahouse? --DangerousJXD (talk) 02:58, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

DangerousJXD I am sorry; I did not delete your question intentionally. If I did it accidentally, then you have my profound apologies.
The situation was this: another user had left a question which overlapped with the Teahouse headings, so I edited the whole page (normally I would just edit one section at a time). When I went to save my changes, there was an edit conflict - that was probably you asking your question. I thought I had recovered all the input, but perhaps I missed yours in the conflicting changes. My fault completely.
I see that you asked your question again, which is great - the Teahouse is a tremendous resource which has helped me a lot and I hope I didn't put you off using it. Did you get the answers you needed? If not, I can help with those ones. --Gronk Oz (talk) 07:14, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

That's fine. Everyone is so nice on Wikipedia! You deserve a cookie. --DangerousJXD (talk) 07:42, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

Welcome to Wikipedia from the Anatomy Wikiproject![edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia from WikiProject Anatomy! We're a group of editors who strive to improve the quality of anatomy articles here on Wikipedia. One of our members has noticed that you are involved in editing anatomy articles; it's great to have a new interested editor on board. In your wiki-voyages, a few things that may be relevant to editing wikipedia articles are:

  • Thanks for coming aboard! We always appreciate a new editor. Feel free to leave us a message at any time on the WikiProject Anatomy talk page. If you are interested in joining the project yourself, there is a participant list where you can sign up. Please leave a message on the talk page if you have any problems, suggestions, would like review of an article, need suggestions for articles to edit, or would like some collaboration when editing!
  • You will make a big difference to the quality of information by adding reliable sources. Sourcing anatomy articles is essential and makes a big difference to the quality of articles. And, while you're at it, why not use a book to source information, which can source multiple articles at once!
  • We try and use a standard way of arranging the content in each article. That layout is here. These headings let us have a standard way of presenting the information in anatomical articles, indicate what information may have been forgotten, and save angst when trying to decide how to organise an article. That said, this might not suit every article. If in doubt, be bold!
  • Lastly, why not try and strive to create a good article! Anatomical articles are often small in scope, have available sources, and only a limited amount of research available that is readily presentable!

Feel free to contact us on the WikiProject Anatomy talk page if you have any problems, or wish to join us. I wish you all the best on your wiki-voyages!

Thanks for your points on List of medical mnemonics. If you happen to be surfing past any more anatomy-related articles, a very untended lot, please feel free to leave a message on the talk page, make improvements, or contact us at WP:ANATOMY! Cheers, --LT910001 (talk) 02:01, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

Welcome to DYK[edit]

Hello, Gronk Oz. New DYK nominations have to have their own individual templates and then transcluded to the main nominations page (like below). We created that template for you by copying and pasting what you had left onto a template. Here's hoping you submit more nominations to DYK. But next time you do, just go to Template talk:Did you know:To nominate an article. Then input the article title in the blank where it says "Your Article Title", and click Create Nomination. It then takes you to a page where you input the rest. After you've created the template, transcluding it is simple. If you open this thread I'm typing into your edit window, you'll see how to do the transclusion. I've transcluded the nomination template here on your talk page. Good luck, and thank you for contributing to DYK. — Maile (talk) 21:13, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

Maile66 (talk · contribs), you are a truly wonderful human being. You have no idea how grateful I am for your assistance with this. Since I wrote the article, I have spent two days trying to penetrate the convoluted, contradictory instructions for DYK. In the end, I chose to follow the instructions at Wikipedia:Did you know/Nomination but obviously they were not the right ones. Now that I know which instructions are the right ones, it's all smooth sailing from here on! Thank you so very much! --Gronk Oz (talk) 01:00, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

BLP expansion[edit]

Hi, I suggest you familiarize yourself with two other pages, Wikipedia:Did you know (the basic rules) and Wikipedia:Did you know/Supplementary guidelines. On neither of these pages is the 2x BLP rule spelled out, but in my years of working on DYK, I can tell you that other experienced editors always point out that the BLP must have absolutely no refs to qualify for the 2x expansion. Even an external link counts as a ref. Good luck, Yoninah (talk) 00:21, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the information, Yoninah - I will read up on those. As a relative newbie, it is frustrating to keep bumping into all these conflicting instructions and rules, so I appreciate you taking the time to clarify it for me. --Gronk Oz (talk) 01:01, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
I've been around since 2005 so hardly a newbie, but I share your frustration with policies and processes. There's loads of them, they often poorly documented, and they are also constantly changing. So don't take it personally. We are all travelling in the same leaky boat! :-) Kerry (talk) 21:19, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

Readable page size[edit]

Hi again. When we calculate page size, we don't look at the byte totals, but at character counts. I paste the text (excluding headers, footnotes, charts, text boxes, and captions) into this tool to get the character count and figure out 5x expansions. Best, Yoninah (talk) 00:28, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

A kitten for you![edit]

Thanks for the work you are doing on the demographics!
