"Two Guys" picture[edit]

I removed the picture of "a typical help desk," as it added nothing to the article and didn't seem to be anything other than somebody posting a picture of themselves on WP for fun. If others feel that it was of worth, go ahead and make your case. Deadsalmon 02:24, 1 November 2005 (UTC)


Removed * SimpleTicket - Open Source Ticketing System produced by Architel Advertisement for a product doesn't belong here.


I created a category for help-desk related stuff. Cwolfsheep 20:30, 9 July 2006 (UTC)

More about help desk[edit]

I've found here very useful information about help desks ( software mainly): Iterating —Preceding unsigned comment added by Stefaniaramona (talkcontribs) 18:42, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

Removed the link to Atkins[edit]

This seems too specific to this general article. meshach 04:41, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

Spelling and capitalization...[edit]

I came here trying to find out if "help desk" should be capitalized as "Help Desk" or not.

Instead I found the article "Help desk" starts with "A helpdesk is" and ends with talk about a "HelpDesk."

Ok, I researched it, and "helpdesk" seems to be slang or a misspelling of "help desk." Googling "define: helpdesk" shows definitions of "help desk" and's definition redirects to "help desk." Mariam Webster doesn't even have an entry "helpdesk." Then there is this Therefore I am fixing this article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Skintigh (talkcontribs) 21:04, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

Looks like this doesn't belong here (talk) 17:39, 16 June 2010 (UTC) Honestly, WHO CARES!?!? Its part of Wikipedia why don't you plz just write an article or email someone that is whats best to do instead of giving some one a really random question...--Kayla4858 (talk) 20:44, 5 October 2011 (UTC)Kayla4858

Produce Key Code Number[edit]

To Whom It May Concern:

I purchased Windows Live One Care back in July sometime of 2009. I had to restore my computer and need to get my produce code key number again to reentry it into the program so I can start and use it again. I am paid up until July 2010 and as it is right now I have a subscription that I paid for but can't use because I do not have the Produce Code Key Number that I was sent when I first purchased it online in July. So, if you could resend it to me that would be great and I will start and use it again. If you have any quesitions for me here is my cell number 757-615-9367 or my email Please let me know the answer to this question as soon as you can. Because like I said I can not use the product right now and my computer is not safe. I have already paid for this product back in July '09.

Help Desk Companies Guidelines[edit]

ManageEngine done a well marketing by putting themselves at the top of internal links. In my though that's a perfect violation of what could be a respectfull edit of wikipedia and a terrific marketing. There is a page for people to announce their products. I can't delete competitor's ManageEngine link.

How do you post an Article?[edit]

I am quite new to Wikipedia and in need of some assistance.--Kayla4858 (talk) 20:38, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

Kayla4858, please have a look to the answer and links I posted on your talkpage. This is NOT an Help Desk for problems editing Wikipedia.--Dia^ (talk) 21:02, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

how do you make an automatic redirect. if you know how, give it to my talk page —Preceding undated comment added 07:56, 6 February 2012 (UTC).

Reverting insertion of speculation.[edit]

I am reverting User:Michael8678's insertion again. It is oddly phrased as speculation, though it may be intended as instruction, contrary to WP:NOTMANUAL. Michael also appears to be trying to construct a reference to two editions of a self-published book in breach of WP:RS, but is linking to the Amazon listings for the book in breach of WP:SPAM. The promotional text on those Amazon pages suffers phraseological difficulties quite similar to Michael's insertion so I have to ask; Michael18678, have you read and understood WP:COI?
