The "only" ones(?)[edit]

Thanks for your encouragement on editing the misuse of only. Sometimes I have thought I was the only one doing it. We only want to do what's correct! (The latter was a little humor, before you jump on me.) :-)

re:stub movement[edit]

No problem, if you are ever interested the list of current stubs can be found Here and the different categories that you can sort stubs into can be found Here. I hope you enjoy being a part of wikipedia and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to leave a note on my talk page or just ask one of the more experienced users here and I'm sure they'd be glad to help, dont' worry we don't bite. Welcome again. Jtkiefer July 3, 2005 07:23 (UTC)

Brazilian Pepper[edit]

Hi David - thanks for the note; I think I can see what you mean, though a scan through google images shows it to be quite variable . . . if the plants pictured are correctly labelled! Unfortunately, it isn't a species I'm familiar with (I know S. molle rather better). If it is any help, the photo on wiki is from Florida (USGS pic) in the first place - so if it isn't S. terebinthifolius, then there's more than one species at large in Florida (quite possible, of course; there's about 25-30 species in the genus, most of them South American). I'll take another look tomorrow. - MPF 5 July 2005 23:33 (UTC)

Daily Illini entry[edit]

Hi David,

Thanks for your comments about the DI entry. I was bored at work yesterday and thought I'd just spruce up the entry a little bit. You're probably right though, the Middle East entry probably is not too relevant. I just thought there was a lot of information about it online and that curious readers might want to know that it's a contentious issue on campus, among other incidents. There are enough instances where I thought it should go in the canon. I was hoping other entries about other controversies or things the paper did well would be added to balance it out in the future. As for the DI book entry, I didn't put it in there as an advertisement. I don't even have any involvement in it. I just thought it would be an interesting tidbit for readers. Take care!

Welcome!

Hello, DavidH/talk2, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date. If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Questions, ask me on my talk page, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Again, welcome!  (Moved to bottom)

Thanks for your edits. One problem you may wish to look out for is changing the article you link to when you adjust wording. For example, at New Orleans Mardi Gras you made many good edits, but at the same time you changed the relevent link to the American Civil War to "Civil War" -- try clicking on that latter link and see why that's not the most specifically relevent article in context. Videotape was also a more relevent link than "videos" (a redirect to video; articles are generally at the singular with a redirect to the plural). A link to Endymion does not go to the same article as one to Krewe of Endymion. Anyway, I hope you take the "constructive" part of this "constructive criticism" as the key point; there's always a learning curve for new users. Take a look at some of the links above, and I think you'll do great as a Wikipedian! Cheers, -- Infrogmation June 29, 2005 21:58 (UTC)

Hi. I responded to your questions on my talk page. Some users do use email to communicate. Personally, unless it is something that should be private, I prefer the talk pages as I look at them when I'm in Wikipedia mode, whereas I might get emails when I'm busy with other things. You use whatever you're comfortable with. I'm sure that at first look much of Wikipedia's policies and practices look needlessly abtuse, but with a bit of time I think you'll find that at least a good deal of it arose from due consideration and experience. Of course your feedback is welcome. Cheers, -- Infrogmation June 30, 2005 01:04 (UTC)
