Welcome[edit]

Welcome!

Hello, Akari no ryu, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions, especially what you did for Edain McCoy. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are some pages that you might find helpful:

Again, welcome! --Dynaflow babble 14:03, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Citations[edit]

Just a quick note on one of the citations in the article you were working on. Wikipedia articles should not use other Wikipedia articles as sources, lest we stumble into a spinning cycle of circular citations. See Wikipedia:Verifiability and Wikipedia:Citing sources. Thanks. --Dynaflow babble 14:12, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Edain McCoy and Citation[edit]

Thank you for your correction, it was intellectually weak of me to have cited wikiepedia and it won't happen again. If I have an email from someone, do I have to host it on the internet before I can cite it?— Preceding unsigned comment added by Akari no ryu (talkcontribs)

You could try forwarding it to OTRS. --Closedmouth (talk) 12:12, 21 January 2009 (UTC)
  • If you have the permission to reveal its contents, hosting it would be a good idea. That way the information is also available to other editors. You still need OTRS to confirm it's indeed the transcript of an actual email conversation (and if possible proof of who the participants are if the addresses don't make it clear) - Mgm|(talk) 12:18, 21 January 2009 (UTC)
I have copied this thread from my userpage to yours. In the future, you can put the {{helpme}} template here on your Talk page, so that the Helpdesk can respond to you directly. Please also sign your Talk page posts with four tildes (~~~~) so that respondents can tell from whom they came. Thanks. --Dynaflow babble 20:04, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

Reply[edit]

No, I do not use that website. No-one "owns" the articles on here - they are contributed to by a lot of people. For example, see all of the registered users (and anonymous IP address users) that have contributed to that page by clicking here
