Milwaukee Public Library[edit]

Hello.. I noticed you created a new article for the Milwaukee Public Library and just wanted to say welcome to Wikipedia! You might be interested in Wikipedia:WikiProject Wisconsin and also reading the Wikipedia:Manual of Style. Take care! Sulfur 01:25, 20 September 2006 (UTC)

Welcome, newcomer[edit]

Welcome, Wistungsten! I seem to have located you as a new editor, somewhere lost and alone in the vastness that is Wikipedia. Never fear, you have found yourself a guide! If you are lost or confused, you might want to take a look at this FAQ.

If you find yourself with a great deal of time, you can start out at the Introduction and work your way through the many pages listed in that page.

I cannot stress enough the necessity of reading - it is absolutely fundamental to your understanding of Wikipedia. I know it's complex and overwhelming, which is exactly why I want to help you. Please feel free to ask questions liberally; the Newbies' help page and my talk page are perfect places to post your queries. Just edit the page using the tabs at the top, and ask away!

In addition, here are some useful links:

I noticed you made an edit without using an edit summary. While it's not required, it's very useful to use edit summaries to let people know what you intended to do. It not only helps other editors to assume good faith, but it makes it easier to identify the edit where a specific change took place without having to wade through the history for hours. It's totally optional, but I would strongly suggest using edit summaries so that everyone knows what you're doing. On a similar note, you can also tag edits as minor, which also helps other editors understand your edits. Again, totally optional, but hopefully you'll keep these tools in mind.Happy editing and good luck! —Keakealani·?·!·@ 02:36, 27 January 2007 (UTC)


Location of Mission San Xavier del Bac[edit]

Hi! thanks for correcting the location of Mission San Xavier del Bac for its photo on the WP:NRHP page. You corrected it to being in Arizona, from New Mexico, or the other way around, i really confuse those states. Frankly i have no idea which is to the west or east of each other, for example. Cheers, doncram 00:08, 24 October 2007 (UTC)

Multnomah County Poor Farm[edit]

Thanks for correcting the architect. Even though I wrote the article on Frederick Manson White, I'm not convinced he's notable, has done everything attributed to him, or is even who he says he is. Cheers! Valfontis (talk) 20:35, 17 February 2011 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Pride[edit]

You are invited! Wiki Loves Pride

You are invited to participate in Wiki Loves Pride, a global campaign to create and improve LGBT-related content at Wikipedia during the month of June, culminating with a multinational edit-a-thon on June 21. The project is being spearheaded by two organizers with roots in the Pacific Northwest. Meetups are being organized in some cities, or you can participate remotely. Wikimedia Commons will also be hosting an LGBT-related photo challenge.

In Portland, there are two ways to contribute. One is a photography campaign called "Pride PDX", for pictures related to LGBT culture and history. The Wiki Loves Pride edit-a-thon will be held on Saturday, June 21 from noon–4pm at Smith Memorial Student Union, Room 236 at Portland State University. Prior Wikipedia editing is not required; assistance will be available the day of the event. Attendees should bring their own laptops and cords.

Feel free to showcase your work here!
