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:Where to ask a question, 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!

Thank you again for contributing to Wikipedia. I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian. Mermaid from the Baltic Sea 23:09, 7 February 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. If you can't type the tilde character, you should click on the signature button Button sig.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 (talk) 23:36, 16 November 2008 (UTC)


Thank you for your desire to contribute to Wikipedia. I think you might wish to read WP:BLP. Labelling content about a living person "propaganda" can be construed as violating the policy of adding potentially libelous material to a biographical article.23:54, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

I have once again reverted your deletion of the classification of siddha yoga as a lineage. The classification is there to 1) disambiguate the siddha yoga that she is head of from other siddha yoga lineages (there is a siddha yoga disambiguation page that lists a few). 2) your deletion (according to your edit summary) appears to be based on a person opionion not on scholarly research. Your edit summaries to do not need to be addressed to me, I appreciate the sentiment, however it seems a little strange and quite frankly downright weird. I will not have discussions about myself on any article's talk page (let alone this one), if you wish to speak to me personally then leave a note on my talk page. If you wish to discuss the article's content on the talk page I will gladly participate. Once again, regarding the classification of siddha yoga as a lineage, if we can't come to an agreement then I think we should seek a third opinion.

Information.png Welcome to Wikipedia. The recent edit you made to Emmanuel de Merode has been reverted, as it appears to be unconstructive. Use the sandbox for testing; if you believe the edit was constructive, please ensure that you provide an informative edit summary. You may also wish to read the introduction to editing. Thank you.

Speedy deletion declined: Itzhak Bentov[edit]

Hello I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Itzhak Bentov, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: unclear what is being promoted here. Thank you. (talk) 08:00, 2 September 2010 (UTC)

I also note your tagging of other related pages for "blatant promotion or advertising" and the same concerns apply to these as well. You can edit the pages yourself to remove material that is overly promotional in tone, if any, or take it to WP:AFD if you feel deletion is still warranted. (talk) 08:02, 2 September 2010 (UTC)
