Hello and welcome to Wikipedia!

Here are some tips to help you get started:

Good luck!

P.S. One last helpful hint. To sign your posts like I did above (on talk pages, for example) use the '~' symbol. To insert just your name, type ~~~ (3 tildes), or, to insert your name and timestamp, use ~~~~ (4 tildes).

Addition[edit]

I saw you requested southern hospitality. Might I direct you to Wikipedia:U.S. Southern wikipedians' notice board, as well? Mike H 20:18, Oct 8, 2004 (UTC)

Hey, cool. I was about to ask if you have anything better to do than monitor the new articles page for updates, but looking at your user page... Bigpeteb 20:29, 8 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Urusei Yatsura[edit]

The UY anime is called "Urusei Yatsura" in the USA but the USA manga releases were called "Lum". WhisperToMe 16:18, 31 Oct 2004 (UTC)


Insidious Big Brother Database[edit]

I've added the "{{prod}}" template to the article Insidious Big Brother Database, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but I don't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and I've explained why in the deletion notice (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia, or, if you disagree with the notice, discuss the issues at Talk:Insidious Big Brother Database. You may remove the deletion notice, and the article will not be deleted, but note that it may still be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached, or if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria.

(The proposed deletion notation of this is not connected to my username. The IBBD application does not appear to be notable and does not assert such). StoptheDatabaseState 17:41, 14 December 2006 (UTC)

As a general rule, software is notable once it has been written about independently (outside of Wikipedia and its own website and promotion). The full details are at WP:SOFTWARE. If you can show that it passes this 'notability test', then it will probably get through an Articles for Deletion (WP:AFD) process. StoptheDatabaseState 18:47, 14 December 2006 (UTC)

Hello,

Thank you for your stub submission. You may wish to note that it is preferable to use a stub template from Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Stub types instead of using simply {{stub}}, if you can.

Thanks! --Vox Causa 22:38, 14 December 2006 (UTC)

WP:TECH[edit]

WikiProject Georgia Tech

As a current or past contributor to a related article, I thought I'd let you know about WikiProject Georgia Tech, a collaborative effort to improve Wikipedia's coverage of Georgia Tech. If you would like to participate, you can visit the project page, where you can join the project and see a list of open tasks and related articles. Thanks! —Disavian (talk/contribs) 04:58, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

Ryokan article[edit]

Thanks for tidying up after me. Your changes are quite an (appreciated) improvement. Best regards, Jim_Lockhart 04:14, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

"IH" instead of just "I"?[edit]

I recently came accross references to "IH-35", instead of the normal "I-35" abbreviation, and I see it's mentioned once in this article. Is this a Texas thing? Is it common? Why do they even do this... what's wrong with plain "I-35"? --Bigpeteb (talk) 15:45, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

It's a Texas thing. TxDOT uses two-letter abbreviations for each type of highway it maintains. {{TxDOT}}, which is one of the reference templates used, has a chart of those abbreviations, which includes IH for the Interstates. Imzadi 1979  02:04, 3 March 2013 (UTC)
Did you mean to reply on my User page, and not the article's talk page? --Bigpeteb (talk) 05:05, 3 March 2013 (UTC)

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Charles Askegard may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "()"s. If you have, don't worry, just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

License tagging for File:Shi DeRu and Shi DeYang.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Shi DeRu and Shi DeYang.jpg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information.

To add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia. For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 19:06, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 17[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Japanese honorifics, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Kami-sama (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Jalapeno varieties[edit]

I notice that you re-added a bunch of nonsense about jalapeno varieties to the article jalapeno. This material, obviously made up, was added by an IP editor and then removed by the same IP address a day later. You re-added it shortly thereafter. I just removed it, but you should take a look at it before putting it back in, because it's obviously a hoax. Cheers!198.72.143.40 (talk) 22:48, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

Wow, I must have been drugged up at the time. I have no idea why I looked at that and thought it needed to stay. Maybe I just saw the "section blanking" tag and reacted based on that without looking further into the history. Thanks for pointing out my silly mistake! --Bigpeteb (talk) 14:25, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Deletion discussion about InformaCast[edit]

Hello, Bigpeteb,

I wanted to let you know that there's a discussion about whether InformaCast should be deleted. Your comments are welcome at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/InformaCast .

If you're new to the process, articles for deletion is a group discussion (not a vote!) that usually lasts seven days. If you need it, there is a guide on how to contribute. Last but not least, you are highly encouraged to continue improving the article; just be sure not to remove the tag about the deletion nomination from the top.

Thanks, ubiquity (talk) 16:18, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 5[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited InformaCast, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page RTP.
