Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia!

Someone using this IP address,, made test edits on the page Ayn Rand which have been reverted or removed. If you did this, please use the sandbox for any other tests you may want to do. If is a shared IP address and you did not do this, you may wish to consider getting a username to avoid confusion with other editors and further irrelevant notices.

Here are a few good links for newcomers:

Here are some other hints and tips:

  • I 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.

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Where to ask a question, ask me on my talk page, or type {{helpme}} here on your talk page and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Again, welcome! HiLo48 (talk) 05:06, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

August 2014[edit]

Stop icon You may be blocked from editing without further warning the next time you vandalize Wikipedia, as you did at Cockroach. Binksternet (talk) 05:24, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

If this is a shared IP address, and you did not make the edits, consider creating an account for yourself so you can avoid further irrelevant notices.
