User talk:

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


Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. If you are stuck, and looking for help, please come to the Newcomers help page, where experienced Wikipedians can answer any queries you have! Or, you can just type {{helpme}} on your user talk page, and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

If you want to have full rights here, get an account quickly!

I notice you are known only as an IP address; that means you are not signed up. It is imperative for you to get an account as soon as possible, instead of using various anonymous IP numbers (which reveal where you are located).

Jimbo Wales, the founder of Wikipedia, has written that:

  • users with "anonymous IP numbers do not have the same civil rights as logged in members of the community. If you want to be a good editor, get an account, make good edits." -- Jimbo Wales

To create an account, you only need to choose a username and password. You don't need to provide any personal information. If you sign up, you'll have a username that others can use to recognize you and leave you messages on the wiki. You'll be able to sign your name just by typing four tildes (~~~~) when you leave someone else a message on a talk ("discussion") page.

If you have any questions, see the help pages, ask at the Village pump, or feel free to ask me on my talk page. I hope that you will become a legitimate editor. Again, welcome! -- Fyslee (collaborate) 14:49, 8 March 2007 (UTC)
