Thanks for the invitation!
Thank you for the invitation. I will definitely check it out. Just a comment/quick post related to some of the other posts I see above.
I felt a bit frustrated as well at first. I contributed, after signing up, wanting to share something I thought interesting, related to a topic/person. The bit that frustrated me most is that the other Users were so quick to revert. The first revert, I totally understood, and knew why... copy paste Copyright. A NO NO!
The Second, I believe was due to an external link where I didn't post the ref at the bottom. I edited my first post, which was now in my words now with refs (just missing the one for that external link). Right after I saved it, I edited to add the ref, but it was already reverted.
However, the user was very cool. I posted on his talk page and asked what was wrong now, and also what was the correct way to ask someone who reverted. He wrote back, that he saw the added ref, reversed his revert, and explained that the Talk link is the correct communication method for that.
Another, one that bothered me a bit, mostly because I just dealt with those 2, was that I viewed a wiki page from a wiki link within my post. I saw the other page didn't link the persons name to the person that the article was about's wiki page... so all I did was add [] around the name on that page, to link to the person's wiki page... Someone reverted it??? WHY??? WHO KNOWS? I DON'T CARE... unless there is a valid rule for it.
My point being, I can identify with the frustrations of some of the negative comments on here... however Copyright, first of all, and going by the rules is crucial.
Here is a good place to start for any question/problem... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Wikipedia_help_forums. People who know that info in and out, are going to make sure we abide by them. So, don't give up. I didn't and my main contribution is there, up and staying. It just took a little frustration and most importantly education by a couple of members to get there. Now I know, be thorough, use your own words, add a ref for every outside statement, link, picture, piece of info you used... and make sure you have a reference for your info. DON'T GIVE UP!

invitation from user on wikibreak
Thanks for the warm welcome!
Thank you for the invitation.
I am trying to edit the company page where I work, and I know that it currently reads like an advertisment. I would like to build upon what is already there, but I also need to see what is on the page before I modify or delete it. Would you suggest starting over, or editing the existing page? Thank you for your assistance. 
Thank you for being so welcoming
Dear Hostbot I definitely need your help. I am trying to edit a page Amanda Eliasch and there are some people who are very negative and it is about to be deleted when it is properly researched with articles from the Times, The Mail, Huffington Post etc. Good articles. I am trying to make it less flashy and so it falls into the limits that Wikipedia enjoys. If you can help me with hiding URLS, I would love it. I am very good once shown but not so great following instructions. I will do my best. Thank you for any ideas and your assistance. Thank you also for the welcome to The teahouse. AERATBAG
