Moved sandbox[edit]

Hi, Angela Sandy. I've moved Angela Sandy/sandbox to User:Angela Sandy/sandbox 2. Let me know if you need any help. Peter aka --Shirt58 (talk) 02:41, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

"Userspace"? "Articlespace"? What's all that about?[edit]

Hi again!

Just to explain a bit of Wikipedia jargon. Wikipedia has a number of "namespaces." To start with the two you need to know about are

  • "mainspace" or "articlespace"

and

  • "userpace"

"Mainspace" is where the Wikipedia articles are. "Userspace" is where users can put information about yourself, start "sandboxes", and get messages for other Wikipedia users (who are often called "editors").

One way to thing about it is like this. In some encyclopedias, there is a section at the back that is not part of the main content, that gives some information about the contributors. For example, Michael X. Smottlethwaite a lecturer in Invertebrate Zoology at the University of Sydney. (Articles that that author contributed in the main section might be marked "MXS" or similar.) That's what "userspace" on Wikipedia is like.

Unfortunately you've created a few things in "articlespace" that should have been in your "userpace". This would be like "The Australian Encyclopedia of Ants" including an article on Michael X. Smottlethwaite in its main section. (I should point out that "The Australian Encyclopedia of Ants" and Michael X. Smottlethwaite are mostly fictitious.)

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any problems.
