Lois Mailou Jones[edit]

Just couldn't help myself and went through and checked all the refs; removed some that were dead or just not WP:RS. There's more than enough good material in the chrono (which I have hard copy of) and official timeline (which is a abbreviated version with some different factoids) and in the good refs left to fill the article out nicely. Maybe I'll add refs from the hard copy chrono, getting some things in order and removing a couple of those unintelligible sentences/paragraphs that don't seem likely to be referenceable. And then let others play with the rest. :-) CarolMooreDC🗽 01:54, 30 March 2013 (UTC)

Great work! Thanks for updating me and I will also check in with the article to try to make the narrative read a bit better (such as maybe working parts into a legacy & reception section). I fleshed out an article/stub for Céline Marie Tabary and linked her back to Lois Mailou Jones. Hope to see you again soon! --meghaninmotion 03:00, 30 March 2013 (UTC)

Those Tildes[edit]

Hi :) Just a quick reminder, don't forget to sign all your posts with four tildes (~~~~), which you seem to have forgotten here (only once, it appears). This way you won't have scary bots following you. Thanks! – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 04:49, 30 March 2013 (UTC)

Yikes! Thanks very much for the reminder and looking out for "newbies" --meghaninmotion 11:09, 30 March 2013 (UTC)

No worries :) – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 17:06, 30 March 2013 (UTC)
Ok, it looks like I've got a bot following me now - I signed a comment/question on the talk pages for talk:Anne Marie Anderson and I used the "sign" with tildes symbol, which put in my signature, but the signature is not hyperlinked. Can you point me in the right direction to a) lose the bot and b) make sure my signature is wikilinked and correct? Thanks in advance for your help --meghaninmotion 17:42, 31 March 2013 (UTC) and for good measure meghaninmotion 17:42, 31 March 2013 (UTC)
Sure, I think I know what you did. At the very top of the page is a Preferences tab. Click on that (or right-click, open in new window, so you can follow along). You'll immediately be in the User Profile tab. Scroll down to the Signature section. "Existing signature" should show your signature as normal, and not hyperlinked. I believe you will also see that you have typed your name in the signature field, and then the "Treat the above as wiki markup" will be checked. Is this correct? If so, you need to delete your signature from the field (just leave it blank), and then uncheck the "Treat above as wiki markup". Scroll down and click save. When the page reloads, scroll down to signature, and you should see your name in the "Existing signature" field as a hyperlink. That's the most basic signature you can have, and from now on, four tildes will sign your name with date and time.
As you make your way around Wikipedia, you'll notice lots of fun custom signatures. That's where the signature field comes into play, and you can insert wiki markup or basic html in there to get colorful signatures. Hope that helps? – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 18:43, 31 March 2013 (UTC)
Yes, that's exactly what happened - thanks so much for your help! You have a great signature and I'll look forward to learning more and distinguishing myself via my signature in the future. Thanks again Meghaninmotion (talk) 19:29, 31 March 2013 (UTC)
Glad it worked. Someone around here has a collection of the more creative signatures, but I can't find it unfortunately. Anyway, glad to see you're up and running now :) – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 02:00, 1 April 2013 (UTC)
Found it. I came across it accidentally: User:Athaenara/Gallery and the sequel page User:Athaenara/Gallery/Beyond. – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 19:02, 26 April 2013 (UTC)
Thank you!! I can't wait to snazz up my signature. Meghaninmotion (talk) 14:35, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 4[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Anne Marie Anderson, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Shelley Smith (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.
