Developing your user page - it is easy!!![edit]

Wikipedia is a megalopolis and like in any city, interactions are very important. I recommend that you develop your user page so that people who visit your page may know your interests and share in them. It could be a single line telling others of not only your name but what you like or a complex page with every single thing that interests you on it. This is a great way of building up work groups that facilitate the sharing of expert knowledge on articles, talks etc. Happy building!!!  CrossTempleJay  talk 21:13, 7 May 2011 (UTC)

Become a great editor through diligence.[edit]

Being a member of the welcoming committee on Wikipedia I encourage you to help Wikipedia in any way you can to increase human knowledge. If you have credible information about a topic with verifiable references please feel free to add to that topic. If there is no article on that topic, why not start it, with time others will add to it and it may even make the featured articles list. By doing this, I have been able to make over 7000 page edits in both new articles, article improvement etc. Furthermore, I encourage you to aim to be a member of the autoconfirmed users [[1]] group as this will greatly improve your Wikipedia experience. You can do this by making at least 10 credible edits on Wikipedia and remaining on Wikipedia for four (4) days. Check out this page for tips. CrossTempleJay  talk 21:13, 7 May 2011 (UTC)

Adding media to articles.[edit]

Media files, be it images, drawings or sound files are an integral part of Wikipedia's articles. They apart from enriching articles, make them more credible too. You can add media files to both your new articles as well as once you are editing. To do so you can search for it on wikipedia:commons or you can either upload the image if you have it using this file uploader or [commons uploader]. Please be informed that you must provide accurate information about the file being uploaded since they are reviewed and if if is found that the license given to the file is false, it will promptly be deleted.  CrossTempleJay  talk 21:13, 7 May 2011 (UTC)

Spotting bad edits and vandalism.[edit]

As you age on Wikipedia, one thing you will come across and probably address will the issue of bad edits or vandalism. There are several ways of spotting them:

  • by reviewing articles on your watchlist regularly and looking for bad edits
  • verifying new changes to pages and articles

If you happen to come across a bad edit you may:

  • ask an editor you trust to review the work for his/her inputs
  • you can rollback the change if you have credible information that the edit is indeed bad
  • request that the necessary change be made on the article's talk page.

Whatever you do, please be very careful about the changes you make, for a rule of thumb, discuss issues you are not sure of first before making changes. CrossTempleJay  talk 21:13, 7 May 2011 (UTC)


Speedy deletion of "Thorlabs"[edit]

A page you created, Thorlabs, has been tagged for deletion, as it meets one or more of the criteria for speedy deletion; specifically, it is about a company or corporation, but it does not indicate how it is important or significant, and thus why it should be included in an encyclopedia. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, and the guidelines for companies in particular.

You are welcome to contribute content which complies with our content policies and any applicable inclusion guidelines. However, please do not simply re-create the page with the same content. You may also wish to read our introduction to editing and guide to writing your first article.

Thank you. Kevin (talk) 08:51, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

Reference format in existing articles[edit]

Your recent additions to Airmass are helpful and welcome, especially with numerous references. But when adding references, please put them in the existing style, per WP:CITE#HOW; mixing reference styles makes an otherwise reasonably good article look unprofessional. The article currently follows Chicago author-date format, separates notes and references, and does not use templates (there currently is no template for Chicago-style author-date).

I’ve changed the citations and references to match the existing format; you might want to give them a quick look to make sure nothing was lost in the translation. JeffConrad (talk) 23:15, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

Ok I missed that. Indeed looks better now. 2pem (talk) 07:23, 3 June 2011 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Speedy deletion nomination of VirnetX[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on VirnetX requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organization or company, but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. ∫ A Y 13:07, 31 May 2016 (UTC)
