Hello there, welcome to the 'pedia! I hope you like the place and decide to stay. If you need pointers on how we title pages visit Wikipedia:Naming conventions or how to format them visit our manual of style. If you have any other questions about the project then check out Wikipedia:Help or add a question to the Village pump. Cheers! --maveric149

Hi Anon, would you mind checking out Talk:University of Berlin --snoyes 00:23 Mar 1, 2003 (UTC)

Hi Anon! Thanks for the help with the literature pages. If you could add to the template * [[Nobel Prize for Literature]]: it would be great! Danny

Hi Anon! I cheat. I just take the info off of the regular years pages, most of which have a small section called "year in literature." I then copy and paste that. I also copy and paste all the relevant birthdays and deathdays. Once we have the twentieth century done like that, I plan on extending the information by going through other materials, but for now it's a good start. Danny 17:24 Mar 2, 2003 (UTC)

Hello, again. Just stick around for a while until people get to know you. Then you can request it on the mailing list. Very rarely is anyone turned down, but it's a good idea to have people know who you are. Danny

BTW, thanks for starting Jackie Coogan. I've been meaning to write something about him for a while, and you started me off. :-) Danny


Hello, Daniel, if that's your name. No, I am not the same Deb as on a-i.com But thanks for telling me about it. Deb 19:17 Mar 6, 2003 (UTC)


Hi there. See Margarine. -- Tarquin 09:34 Mar 8, 2003 (UTC)

I didn't update margerine -- I found that what you'd put in was copied from another site. Did you have copyright permission? -- Tarquin 17:11 Mar 8, 2003 (UTC)
get your dad his own login ID! and tell him off for not reading the GFDL warning that's below the edit box! (ROTFL ...!!!! ;-) -- Tarquin 19:00 Mar 8, 2003 (UTC)
GFDL issues aside, there isn't any policy that prohibits multiple people from using a single account.

Article Licensing[edit]

Hi, I've started a drive to get users to multi-license all of their contributions that they've made to either (1) all U.S. state, county, and city articles or (2) all articles, using the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike (CC-by-sa) v1.0 and v2.0 Licenses or into the public domain if they prefer. The CC-by-sa license is a true free documentation license that is similar to Wikipedia's license, the GFDL, but it allows other projects, such as WikiTravel, to use our articles. Since you are among the top 2000 Wikipedians by edits, I was wondering if you would be willing to multi-license all of your contributions or at minimum those on the geographic articles. Over 90% of people asked have agreed. For More Information:

To allow us to track those users who muli-license their contributions, many users copy and paste the "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" template into their user page, but there are other options at Template messages/User namespace. The following examples could also copied and pasted into your user page:

Option 1
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions, with the exception of my user pages, as described below:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

OR

Option 2
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions to any [[U.S. state]], county, or city article as described below:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

Or if you wanted to place your work into the public domain, you could replace "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" with "{{MultiLicensePD}}". If you only prefer using the GFDL, I would like to know that too. Please let me know what you think at my talk page. It's important to know either way so no one keeps asking. -- Ram-Man (comment| talk)
