I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Oh yeah, I almost forgot, when you post on talk pages you should sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); that should automatically produce your username and the date after your post. If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Questions, ask me on my talk page, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and ask your question there. Again, welcome! --Flex (talk/contribs) 12:40, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

Helen Gardner[edit]

Thank you for all your useful corrections to my references. I'll try to be more careful in the future! Amandajm (talk) 06:22, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

and yes, I agree with you about British quotation marks. I use British spelling and punctuation for all my European/British/Australian articles. Amandajm (talk) 06:26, 15 January 2009 (UTC)
And thanks for the articles! The one on St. Peter's is really good. --Margin1522 (talk) 15:21, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

Trados[edit]

I think it's got a reasonable chance of survival. I repeated the survey link in the first line to make it clear that the market leader bit isn't just spam. I tweaked a couple of bits, including spelling out what TM means, and chopped Ext links, since both items now linked in text. it would be a good idea if you could give references for both sides of the criticism section. jimfbleak (talk) 16:49, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Haken giri[edit]

I guess you are native English speaker and can understand Japanese, please correct the article of Haken giri about words, grammar in flowing English style.ピノキオ (talk) 03:04, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

I'll try. I wish I could do it today, but it may have to wait until next week. I agree that we need an article about this, so that people will realize that it is a very serious situation. --Margin1522 (talk) 06:41, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Thanks you, I appreciate your reply.ピノキオ (talk) 12:35, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Social Software (computer software)[edit]

I noticed you've been editing the above article. Plan on sticking around a while? I've been working on it for a while (offline). Can you tell me on my talkpage if you'll continue, so we can coordinate. If not, feel free to erase this to keep your page neat! Mxvxnyxvxn (talk) 19:50, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

Response copied from my user page: :Actually, I wasn't going to do more than correct the article itself. I'm learning about it on the wing. I won't be ready to discuss merges and the like until after I'm satisfied with what it looks like. If there are other articles that are overlapping this one, would you mind linking me? Maybe I'll know what you're talking about after that. As I said, I'll tell you when the article is beyond my help. Mxvxnyxvxn (talk) 01:31, 23 June 2009 (UTC) Mxvxnyxvxn (talk) 23:34, 23 June 2009 (UTC)
Update- Someone else stopped by and finished the grammar. Feel free to do what you feel is needed. I'll be gone for about three weeks. Mxvxnyxvxn (talk) 14:39, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

Copyediting barnstar[edit]

I award you this CopyEditor's BarnStar for insisting on clear, comprehensible, and grammatically correct articles. —James Chenery (talk) 12:44, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

Though, you are more than just a copy editor!

I live not far from 西船橋市、myself, and will be moving to into deepest, darkest Tokyo fairly soon. I hope you are surviving the 右翼 and ヤクザ without incident. --James Chenery (talk) 12:44, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

Thanks! No problems with the uyoku (where have they been lately?), but watch out for the election cars! With municipal and national elections coming up, this is going to be a big one. :) --Margin1522 (talk) 13:21, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
The usual places. In front of train stations, parading about Tokyo on national holidays, and occasionally, on Sundays, one group likes to rant about "Anglo Saxons" through their loudspeakers while making a pathetic display in front of the British Embassy. I had a Junior High School kid who wore a Seiji Dantai uniform to school every day with an enormous mon embroidered in gold thread on the back, and my current school has a few Yakuza kids, too. I am not terribly interested in Japan's politics though, as the Yakuza and the construction companies seem to have everything pretty much sewn up. My friends are currently bemoaning the proposed "family allowance", which they reckon will drive consumption tax up to 12% over the next couple of years. Still, nothing serious enough to give me a bout of culture shock. ;) --James Chenery (talk) 19:00, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

Cite shuffle[edit]

I wrote and cited most of the Sawant article. If you're confused why footnotes are at the end of particular paragraphs or sentences I might be able to help. GraniteSand (talk) 19:57, 16 November 2013 (UTC)

Thank you. The dissertation is pretty long, and I doubt most readers are going to be able to find the information being cited without page numbers. One approach might be to add a References section, put the dissertation there, and then add footnotes to in the main text, citing author (Sawant), title, and page number for each piece of information.

Disambiguation link notification for July 8[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Gigon/Guyer, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Prime Tower. 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.

Helping New Users Barnstar Hires.png The Helping Hand Barnstar
Thank you for helping me out with my userpage. It's nice to know there are Wikipedians out there always willing to lend a hand. I won't forget it! The Free Editor Anyone Can Cite (talk) 14:15, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thanks for your message. I'm still learning, and still a bit overwhelmed by all the policies and rules. I really admire your work on the Soka Gakkai page. --Daveler16 (talk) 04:53, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

Don't worry about it. Be bold! If you screw up there's always somebody there to fix it :) -- Margin1522 (talk) 14:36, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for your help with Edward Perl page[edit]

Thank you for your help with the new page on Edward Perl. And thank you for your encouragement through the offer of a Barnstar! I've a lot to learn (and am a little nervous about the whole Wikipedia process), but feedback and help such as you've given makes it all worth it. B Taylor-Blake (talk) 20:20, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

My pleasure. That was a fine article. And good luck with the image. Ideally the best copyright release is from the person who took it, but if that's not possible let's not give up. I'll look around and try to find out what's acceptable in a case like this. --Margin1522 (talk) 20:43, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

Soka Gakkai[edit]

I didnt want to hurt your feelings, as I share them. Compare Talk:List of scientists opposing the mainstream scientific assessment of global warming or the last changes with regard to Ozone depletion - I mean if a group of authors denies one to improve an article with valid sources, since the y fear for their POV, there seems to be something wrotten in the state of Wikipedia. I however wanted to provide some quality sources and I doubt the Bundestag report is much of use if better and larger good sources are at hand. Best regards Serten (talk) 17:00, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

You didn't . I read the EKD Zentralstelle entry, and it was quite good. Life goes on. There is plenty that I can do to improve the encyclopedia without needing to ask for third opinions. --Margin1522 (talk) 22:55, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
