Welcome[edit]

Hello, OkMonika and welcome to Wikipedia! It appears you are participating in a class project. If you haven't done so already, we encourage you to go through our training for students.

Go through our online training for students.

If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Questions, ask me on my talk page, or ask your question on this page and then place {{Helpme}} before the question. Please also read this helpful advice for students.

Before you create an article, make sure you understand what kind of articles are accepted here. Remember: Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, and while many topics are encyclopedic, some things are not.

Your instructor or professor may wish to set up a course page, if your class doesn't already have one. It is highly recommended that you place this text: {{Educational assignment}} on the talk page of any articles you are working on as part of your Wikipedia-related course assignment. This will let other editors know this article is a subject of an educational assignment and aid your communication with them.

We hope you like it here and encourage you to stay even after your assignment is finished! Jprg1966 (talk) 22:02, 14 January 2014 (UTC)

A big welcome to everyone from the new class led by the renowned Fuzheado (talk · contribs).
The template above talks about course pages, so I followed the link and found yours, (in case you or Jprg1966 didn't find it already), at
* Education_Program:American_University/COMM535_(Spring_2014)
Did your instructor ask you to add talk page templates (aka banners) to the articles you edit as assignments? I am adding one or two where I think they are relevant.

January 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Duke Ellington School of the Arts may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "()"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:

stierch talk[edit]

hi, i saw your question at User:SarahStierch's talk page. sarah's moved on to berkeley, and she's not responding on wiki (she may stop by when in town). i would suggest you look at meta:Wikimedia District of Columbia; [1], which has some meetups, and a to do list from the latest editathon Wikipedia:Meetup/ArtAndFeminism. there's a meetup on Feb 11 (on your schedule). the WMDC board members can answer questions [2], or myself). in general, most articles are lacking multimedia, lots to do. an example of how external media is linked is at Berthe Morisot (down at the bottom).

February 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm SummerPhD. I wanted to let you know that I undid one or more of your recent contributions to Michael Clarke Duncan because it did not appear constructive. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. I'm assuming an incorrect spelling change to a proper noun labeled "grammar." SummerPhD (talk) 03:02, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

Washington DC articles seeking editors[edit]

Hello, OkMonica, I'm an occasional editor on DC topics. Perhaps this can get you started:

These "stub" articles all need help! Just click on any that sound potentially interesting, and take a look. If you find some you think are really important that you're not going to get to, you can make a list with the links and post it here:

So welcome, and we're looking forward to seeing you at some WikiDC events! Djembayz (talk) 19:51, 15 February 2014 (UTC)
