Hello, Bfoshizzle1, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few links to pages you might find helpful:

You may also want to complete the Wikipedia Adventure, an interactive tour that will help you learn the basics of editing Wikipedia. You can visit the Teahouse to ask questions or seek help.

Please remember to sign your messages on talk pages by typing four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically insert your username and the date. If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Questions, ask me on my talk page, or ask for help on your talk page, and a volunteer should respond shortly. Again, welcome!

As if that wasn't a lot, an extra recommendation: instead of making major changes to a featured article (highest quality class, you know by the little star in its upper right corner), all in one edit, better discuss plans to do so on the article talk page. Some articles are allergic to specific changes (such as reference style), and may revert just because of one little thing. If you don't want to discuss, split it up in smaller edits. - Happy editing. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 08:17, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

Please do not use "pg." for pages.[edit]

The standard notation for "page" is "p.", not "pg.". Please do not break it like here. — Mikhail Ryazanov (talk) 21:13, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

Ann Arbor[edit]

Please note that Ann Arbor, Michigan is a WP:FA article and has gone through extensive reviews. Making stylistic changes to existing articles should not be done, unless there is no uniformity to styles in it. That's certainly not the case with Ann Arbor. You may want to review WP:MOS.

Thank you for registering! We hope that you find collaborative editing enjoyable. Wikipedia, an online encyclopedia that started in 2001, is free for all to use and edit within the guidelines and principles users have established and adhere to. Many of these principles and guidelines are listed below. Click on the link next to the images for more information. REMEMBER - each policy and guideline page has a discussion you can join to ask questions, add input and contribute your voice towards any current policy or guideline change underway! Join the discussion by going to the talk page of the article. Please take a minute to view a number of quick start pages for an overview of how to work within these guidelines and more information to help you better understand the practices and procedures editors are using. These include: The Newcomers Manual and User:Persian Poet Gal/"How-To" Guide to Wikipedia.

Sometimes new editors become frustrated quickly and find their experience on Wikipedia less than enjoyable. This need not be. If you are having a difficult time for any reason, please feel free to ask me for assistance! Or, better yet, visit The Teahouse where veteran editors are waiting to assist you.

This is being posted on your talk page where you can receive messages from other Wikipedians and discuss issues and respond to questions. At the end of each message you will see a signature left by the editor posting. This is done by signing with four tildes (~~~~) or by pressing Button sig.png or Insert-signature.svg in the editing interface toolbox, located just above the editing window (when editing). You won't need to sign your contributions to articles themselves; you only need to when using talk pages. If you have any questions or face any initial hurdles, feel free to contact me on my talk page and I will do what I can to assist or give you guidance.
