Welcome!

Welcome to Wikipedia, Buxtehude! My name is Ryan, aka Acetic Acid. I noticed that you were new and haven't received any messages yet. I just wanted to see how you were doing. Wikipedia can be a little intimidating at first, since it uses different formatting than other sites that use HTML and CSS. In the long run, though, you'll find that the WikiSyntax is a lot easier and faster than those other ways. Here are a few links to get you started:

There are a lot of policies and guides to read, but I highly recommend reading over those first. If you have any questions, feel free to leave me a message on my talk page. Please be sure to sign your name on Talk Pages using four tildes (~~~~) to produce your name and the current date, along with a link to your user page. This way, others know when you left a message and how to find you. It's easier than having to type out your name, right? :)

I hope you enjoy contributing to Wikipedia. We can use all the help we can get! Have a nice day. Sincerely, Acetic Acid 01:27, August 19, 2005 (UTC)

consistency
Thank you for quality contributions to articles such as Charles and Ray Eames and Concertgebouw, and for gnomish work, taking care of consistency, correcting the spelling of names, watching for vandalism, - you are an awesome Wikipedian!

A year ago, you were the 881st recipient of my PumpkinSky Prize, --Gerda Arendt (talk) 06:30, 9 June 2015 (UTC)

Two years ago, you were recipient no. 881 of Precious, a prize of QAI! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:32, 9 June 2016 (UTC)

Videos[edit]

If you enter videos to Bach works, please place them in a section External links, - create that if it doesn't exist. "Sources" means sources which have been useed for the article. In any case, the scores belong on top. - Happy Easter! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 11:18, 5 April 2015 (UTC)

O.K., I will create/use External links. Except I can't see why the scores should come first in the External links section. I imagine most visitors would like to hear the work performed, not study the score. Buxtehude (talk) 11:26, 5 April 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
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.

DRN on Bach[edit]

I am trying to close the RfC since its 30 days have expired. I included you as an interested person because in the statement of the RfC, Fountains-of-Paris had used your name to refer to a paragraph from last March 27 2015 which I believe you deleted on 30 March.

Recent RfC on JSB closed; next steps about it.[edit]

Please see the new section in Talk:Johann Sebastian Bach, "Second RfC closed Feb. 22, now what?"

You may be happy that the anecdote misnamed for you is now no longer in play. Marlindale (talk) 01:41, 23 February 2016 (UTC)
