Signature questions[edit]

Hi Cammie! Sorry I missed this before. You asked: "Hi Sara, Sorry for my late response to your welcome. I didn't have a chance to ask about this last week, but re: signature, why is it necessary to enter a signature when doing edits? In my past edits prior to the class, I always signed in my Wikipedia account so the edits would be identified as mine. I haven't accrued that many edits so I think I can go back and insert my signature retroactively if necessary -- do you advise doing that? Same question about entering my signature when making comments on a Talk page. Hope my questions make sense. Really enjoying the webinars."

I think I understand the question, and you've probably figured it out already, but the general practice is to insert your signature after a comment on a talk or discussion page only. That way the person you are speaking to can identify you and respond. Or, if you're asking why people would use their real name instead of just their user name, that is just a matter of personal preference. If I misunderstood please ask again on the TALK page where Pete will see it, or bring it to lab on Thursday! Thanks for your interest, Hope to see you in class shortly. -Sara FB (talk) 00:30, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

Hi Camellia wagashi, we look forward to seeing you in class in a few hours. We look forward to seeing you in class in a few hours. Here's the link to our Week 3 class page and to the live webinar.

PLEASE NOTE: If you're not in the USA, please double-check the class time. We have gone on Daylight Savings Time (also known as Summer Time) in the USA, so for some of you the class time will be an hour earlier. (If your country goes on Summer Time in the coming weeks, you will want to check again!)

This week we are going to start off with some basic review of all we've covered. So if you've been feeling behind or confused by all the details, we'll make sure we've got your questions answered before forging ahead! See you soon, -Pete (talk) 16:31, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 3[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Knife Fight (TV series), you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Tomahawk, Lamb and Prickly pear. 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.
