Removal of POV tags[edit]

You're doing a grand job! Matt Stan 15:55, 29 October 2005 (UTC)

Liberty Dollar[edit]

I've nominated the page "Liberty Dollar" for nomination and am notifying you accordingly since you are a contributor. BrianGCrawfordMA 23:15, 17 February 2006 (UTC)

G. Edward Griffin[edit]

I think that the article on G. Edward Griffin may violate copyright law as it is lifted almost word for word from the biography on the book jacket of The Creature From Jekyll Island. If this is the case most of the information should be reworded so that it does not need to be removed. As you are a major contributor to the article, I would like to hear your thoughts before I do anything. -FurciferRNB

Adoption[edit]

Hey! I saw that you offered to adopt me and teach me about wikipedia. Thank you! Where do I go from here? --Alizera 02:17, 11 February 2007 (UTC)

Ask me questions via one of two methods #1: simply add your question or questions to my user talk page (likely the easier and best option) or #2: Goto my my user page and click on "E-mail this user" link in the left sidebar (in the box labelled 'toolbox') or go there via a link (either of which will only be an option if you have confirmed your email address via the 'email box' under 'my preferences').

Alrighty. How exactly do you start your own article from scratch instead of editting something that's already there. Also, how do these template thingies work?--Alizera

What would you suggest would be the easiest way for newbies to contribute? Like what specific tasks do you think would be easiest? --Alizera Do you ever just edit an article without knowing what the article is about? Maybe clear up grammar and such?--Alizera 23:03, 15 February 2007 (UTC)

Why sure, so long as the article is written in comprehensible English. Thane Eichenauer 23:20, 15 February 2007 (UTC)

Adopt-a-user[edit]

Hi there,

I have a query regarding your experience to be an adopter as your edit count is very low. Please see the guideline criteria here Wikipedia:Adopt-a-User/Adopter's Area. Either reply here or on my user talk page. Cheers Lethaniol 12:48, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

Okay you acknowledge you have a low edit count. Generally a user with such a low edit count would not be an appropriate adopter because they did not have the experience needed to help answer the questions of their adoptees. Now sometimes users have a large amount of experience elsewhere of Wikipedia, from other Wikis, anon editing or other accounts. My question is whether you have such experience, and are confident that you will be able to help your adoptees. Cheers Lethaniol 22:29, 7 March 2007 (UTC)
