User talk:

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search


Hello, 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:

Here are some other hints and tips:

  • I would recommend that you get a username. You don't have to log in to read or edit articles on Wikipedia, but creating an account is quick, free and non-intrusive, requires no personal information, and there are many benefits of having a username. (If you edit without a username, your IP address is used to identify you instead.)
  • When using talk pages, please sign your name at the end of your messages by typing four tildes (~~~~). This will automatically produce your username (or IP address) and the date.

If you have any questions, check out Wikipedia:Questions, ask me on my Talk page, or type {{helpme}} on this talk page and a user will help you as soon as possible. I will answer your questions as far as I can. Again, welcome, and I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian. CWC 07:33, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

Your recent edits[edit]

Hi, there. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. On many keyboards, the tilde is entered by holding the Shift key, and pressing the key with the tilde pictured. You may also click on the signature button Button sig2.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your name and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you! --SineBot 07:07, 31 August 2007 (UTC)


I am very familiar with the Apostrophe article and I know the rules of its use. I am know that the 's for all plurals, mainly those already ending in s, is not completely agreed on. However, the apostrophe has no pronuciation, it is simply a symbol. Access' is simply pronounced access, as there is no final s to give that final syllable. As such, I won't pronounce it Access uses when Access's uses is correct. A subject expert on every article is not necessarily a punctuation expert. "Articles written by other people" is irrelevant as this is a collaborative encyclopedia and no one owns articles. I retain the right to edit pages for punctuation.
