Hi, Bob bobato, Welcome to Wikipedia! Wikipedia-logo.png

Welcome to Wikipedia! I hope you enjoy the encyclopaedia and want to stay. Before getting too in-depth, you may want to read about the simplified ruleset. If you need help on how to title new articles check out the naming conventions, and for help on formatting the pages visit the manual of style. If you need help look at Wikipedia:Help and the FAQ; plus, if you can't find your answer there, check the Village Pump (for Wikipedia related questions) or the Reference Desk (for general questions). There's still more help at the Tutorial and Policy Library. Also, don't forget to visit the Community Portal. And if you have any more questions after that, feel free to post them on my user talk page.

Additional tips[edit]

Here are some extra tips to help you get around in Wikipedia:

  • If you want to play around with your new Wiki skills the Sandbox is for you.
  • You can sign your name using three tildes (~). If you use four, you can add a datestamp too.
  • If you ever think a page or image should be deleted, please list it at the votes for deletion page. There is also a votes for undeletion page if you want to retrieve something that you think should not have been deleted.
  • If you're still entirely confused, or would like to get a better grasp of your wikipedia skills, and you have an IRC client (or don't mind getting one), check out the Bootcamp. It's not what it sounds like, but it is fun and can help you with your editing skills.

Thanks for uploading Image:800px-Writing systems worldwide2.png. The image has been identified as not specifying the copyright status of the image, which is required by Wikipedia's policy on images. Even if you created the image yourself, you still need to release it so Wikipedia can use it. If you don't indicate the copyright status of the image on the image's description page, using an appropriate copyright tag, it may be deleted some time in the next seven days. If you made this image yourself, you can use copyright tags like {{PD-self}} (to release all rights), {{self|CC-by-sa-3.0|GFDL}} (to require that you be credited), or any tag here - just go to the image, click edit, and add one of those. If you have uploaded other images, please verify that you have provided copyright information for them as well.

AfD nomination of Cold Y Generation[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

An editor has nominated Cold Y Generation, an article which you have created or worked on, for deletion. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Cold Y Generation and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to address the nominator's concerns but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate. Thank you. --Law Lord (talk) 02:03, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

Clarification on Template:Canadian federal election, 2011A[edit]

Your edit to the aformentioned template, which I assume was done in good faith, has been reversed by User:117Avenue. As I was the original contributor of the edits you changed, and your changes seem to have come from confusion surrounding the policy regarding the template, I thought I should write something here to explain it to you. Simply put, there is no policy in place that bars any political party from being listed in the template, no matter what their seat count is or how much of the popular vote they received. All parties are to be listed, but to be listed they should have an article listing the candidates they are running in the election, which only the Communists, out of all the minor parties, currently have. To quote User:117Avenue: "navboxes link to all related pages, when the other parties have candidate articles, they will be added too". I hope this has help made this clear to you. I appreciate your attempts to improve the template, but please keep this in mind when conducting future edits. Comrade Hamish Wilson (talk) 09:35, 3 April 2011 (UTC)

Articles for deletion/Adultism[edit]

Hi Bob,

The "Adultism" page is up for deletion (I saw you previously took an interest in it).

I just created the election redirects you requested at WP:AFC/R. Was there a reason for you not to create them yourself? Huon (talk) 12:32, 10 August 2012 (UTC)

I'd never made a redirect before and I thought that the procedure was for it to be reviewed by another editor first.theBOBbobato (talk) 17:04, 10 August 2012 (UTC)
While you can go that route, there's no need, except for unregistered and very newly registered editors who cannot create articles - be bold! Redirects are cheap anyway, so there's no harm in accidentally creating more than we need. Huon (talk) 17:54, 10 August 2012 (UTC)

Talk:Bradley Manning/October 2013 move request[edit]

Greetings. Because you participated in the August 2013 move request regarding this subject, you may be interested in participating in the current discussion. This notice is provided pursuant to Wikipedia:Canvassing#Appropriate notification. Cheers! bd2412 T 21:30, 4 October 2013 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
