Hi Rick,

welcome to Wikipedia :). Not everyone gets that loud feedback when joining Wikipedia to improve articles (on the other hand, there are people in this wiki who are doing such lovely work that one couldn't be loud enough to applaud them). I am quite confident that there are a lot of people around who will be offering their help in the policy jungle and style advises and explaining all the aspects of Wikipedia. Simply ask and someone will answer. I would love to hear from your experiences in Wikipedia after those days of work are over. -- Mathias Schindler 21:22, 23 January 2007 (UTC)

Citing reliable sources when adding statements to articles, and demanding citations for uncited controversial claims, that's the key. With proper citations an article about Nazi UFOs can survive a deletion attempt. Gazpacho 09:19, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

There were still some assertions in that article that seemed out of line with the available sources. For example, that you were asked to edit articles about "Microsoft products." I've edited it further. Gazpacho 22:54, 28 January 2007 (UTC)


For additional insight into wikipedia dynamics and passions read this Wikipedia mail message. Some people are willing to devotes hours a day to pokeman - others to diacritics. The questions used to further each side's arguments are very typical of Wikipedia debates. People will carry on about the most minute things you can imagine, and at the end of it all, many times, we have an article with an astounding level of detail and sources. Then again sometimes one side just gets angry and carries on in a way that forces us to block them. WAS 4.250 15:47, 3 February 2007 (UTC)

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Robert Harris (poet), and it appears to be a substantial copy of For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material; such additions will be deleted.

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) 19:27, 14 March 2011 (UTC)


Hi Rick. I blog for SocialFresh on paid COI editing on Wikipedia. You may have seen there is some discussion on whether it is a reliable source for Wikipedia per se, but I did want to see if you were interested in doing a Q&A for the blog. I saw your comment on the COI Editing article and figured it was about time someone get all the facts out.(sort of like I did here)

The blog post is up here and I've shared it on the Conflict of interest editing on Wikipedia page as a potential source to balance your section with your point of view. User:King4057 16:06, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
