Hello, Fellow de-orphaner![edit]

Nuvola filesystems folder home.png

I noticed you added your name to the list of participants in WikiProject Orphanage. We really appreciate your help! The first things you could do to get started with us are:

  1. Read the Wikipedia:WikiProject Orphanage page, especially the section marked "Criteria". The page contains a lot of good advice to get you started, as well as the standard procedures we are using to de-orphan articles.
  2. Look at {{orphan}},{{do-attempt}}, and {{articleissues}} closely and make sure you know how to use them correctly. (It's not difficult, but it is easy to screw up. Trust me, I have.)
  3. Keep de-orphaning! Category:Orphaned articles contains all orphaned articles organized by month. Right now we're just trying to keep up with all the new orphans being created, so please start with the current monthly category. Once those are cleared out, we can start working on the backlog in reverse-chronological order.
Of course, you may have already known all of this, in which case sorry for the spam. Either way, let me know if there's any way I can help you contribute more to the project!--Aervanath lives in the Orphanage 15:05, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

\m/[edit]

Kickass, as if there are other cool people on Earth! Don't worry about the socialism thing, I just use that as a blanket term because it's the closest thing I know of :P In other news, you better only play Apocalyptica on cello haha.

Now, for Death Magnetic; I'm sorta apprehensive about it. Though so far I see good things (for example, they've gone back to that sick thrash-days logo instead of some polished typeface), after withstanding Load, Reload and St. Anger (courtesy of James's cat doing all his growling for him and Ulrich breaking his snare drum or something) I'm afraid this'll only send them down further into the pits of metal hell.

Hopefully it'll be a return to their garage days and we'll show these new-generation hip-hopping rappers what real music is. Master of Puppets Call me MoP! :) 21:53, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Hi[edit]

Hello and thank you for experimeting with Wikipedia, (Madras Middle School). I go to one of the high schools here. There aren't many teenage users in this area!Marshall T. Williams (talk) 00:42, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

Congratulations![edit]

Hey, I've been following the good article nomination for Roswell High School and was very happy to see it pass! None of the other articles for high schools in metro Atlanta are even remotely that good, so I'm very happy to see an Atlanta high school achieve good article status. One of these days I'm going to try to make the North Springs article that good, but I don't know if it will happen. ;) (North Springs is where I went to school.) --Hippie Metalhead (talk) 01:02, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

Thanks so much! I was really happy when it finally happened, as you can imagine I have been working on it a while. If you need help on the North Springs article let me know. I didn't go there but I can certainly offer advice and help with little things. Thanks again! AUburnTiger (talk) 04:54, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being 'minor'. The only thing that's changed is that you will no longer have them marked as minor by default.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. If you are familiar with the contents of WP:MINOR, and believe that it is still beneficial to the encyclopedia to have all your edits marked as such by default, then this discussion will give you the details you need to continue with this functionality indefinitely. If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 18:43, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link fixing one-day contest[edit]

I have decided to put on a mini-contest within the November 2013 monthly disambiguation contest, on Saturday, November 23 (UTC). I will personally give a $20 Amazon.com gift card to the disambiguator who fixes the most links on that server-day (see the project page for details on scoring points). Since we are not geared up to do an automated count for that day, at 00:00, 23 November 2013 (UTC) (which is 7:00 PM on November 22, EST), I'll take a screenshot of the project page leaderboard. I will presume that anyone who is not already listed on the leaderboard has precisely nine edits. At 01:00, 24 November 2013 (UTC) (8:00 PM on November 23, EST), I'll take a screenshot of the leaderboard at that time (the extra hour is to give the board time to update), and I will determine from that who our winner is. I will credit links fixed by turning a WP:DABCONCEPT page into an article, but you'll have to let me know me that you did so. Here's to a fun contest. Note that according to the Daily Disambig, we currently have under 256,000 disambiguation links to be fixed. If everyone in the disambiguation link fixers category were to fix 500 links, we would have them all done - so aim high! Cheers! bd2412 T 02:30, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
