I do recent-changes patrolling. If I've undone your edit and/or left you a note about your contributions then please take a moment, think, and:

  1. Take seriously the possibility I might be right. If I've left you a message linking to Wikipedia guidelines, read them, and see how they might apply to you.
  2. Take seriously the possibility I might be wrong. - don't panic, don't scream at me. If you leave me a message explaining what you're trying to do, I promise to take the time to read it, and if appropriate help you to do it without causing confusion.
  3. Repeating your edit without explaining anything will probably get the same reaction from me - right or wrong - as before. There are a lot of people here, inlcuding me, who will help you if you ask.

I've written a short No-links beginners' guide to Wikipedia, that should contain the bare essentials for someone new to editing.

I'm running PseudoBot, to keep some of the easier-to-spot nonsense off the date pages. I'd like it to be as good as possible, so please leave me a message if it makes any mistakes or if you have any ideas to improve it (though you'll need to be patient for anything apart from mistake fixing).

A quick guide to where anonymous editors are editing from (mainly over the weekend)
