Please bear these points in mind while editing Wikipedia

The Wikipedia tutorial is a good place to start learning about Wikipedia. If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question to the village pump or ask me on my talk page. By the way, you can sign your name on Talk and discussion pages using four tildes, like this: ~~~~ (the software will replace them with your signature and the date). Again, welcome!

This is the sort of thing that should only be done after discussion with other editors. I've started one at one of our Wikiprojects, see Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Ancient Near East#ASPRO chronology. You clearly know how to make edit summaries. Please use them for virtually all your edits to explain your edits without using sonic screwdrivers. They work even worse here than they do on wood.

BC→BCE at Neolithic Revolution[edit]

WP:ERA, which you quote in the summary for this edit specifically instructs editors not to "arbitrarily change from one era style to the other on any given article", and the established style at Neolithic Revolution is AD/BC, which you can see from a recent discussion on that article's talk page. I'll assume good faith and take this as a mistake, but please read policies fully before you use them to back up your edits! joe•roetc 18:53, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

  • Thanks for drawing my attention to this Joey Roe. You have made an excellent assistant. I will ensure that I do not arbitrarily change eras again on your good guidance. A Timelord (talk) 19:17, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

ASPRO chronology[edit]

Please stop adding this now, as other editors have agreed it's not appropriate - see the discussion at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Archaeology. Thanks. Dougweller (talk) 18:50, 16 January 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Timelady[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute to Wikipedia, introducing inappropriate pages, such as Timelady, is not in accordance with our policies. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

  • The terminology to describe a female who lords over time would appear to be the same as that for a male. The fictional character called Romana seems to reference herself as a Timelord too. So it would seem that your nomination for deletion is supported by fact. Thanks for your help exterminating this alien species. A Timelord (talk) 01:44, 17 January 2012 (UTC)

January 2012[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute to Wikipedia, at least one of your recent edits, such as the one you made to Time Lady with this edit, did not appear to be constructive, and has been reverted or removed. Please use the sandbox for any test edits you would like to make, and read the welcome page to learn more about contributing constructively to this encyclopedia. Thank you.

You are deleting sourced text - the source you deleted, [1], refers to Romana as a 'Time Lady'. This is disruptive and if continued will lead to a block. Dougweller (talk) 14:53, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
The full link for your source text [2] refers to Romana as a Time Lord giving equal balance to the argument and hence I AM not being disruptive. A Timelady (talk) 13:50, 21 January 2012 (UTC)
He's right, you know. There is no reference to a time lady in the source. (The concept, imo, doesn't exist.) --regentspark (comment) 17:34, 7 March 2012 (UTC)
