Welcome![edit]

Hello, Chris.Bristol, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are some pages that you might find helpful:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your messages on talk pages using 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 your question on this page and then place {{help me}} before the question. Again, welcome!

March 2012[edit]

Information.svg Hello. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, such as on Talk:Boeing 377, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. You could also click on the signature button Insert-signature.png or Button sig.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your username or IP address and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when they said it. Thank you. Compdude123 03:30, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

Signature[edit]

I know I've been bothering you a lot but I promise this will be the last time. I just wanted to let you know that your signature needs to have some sort of link to your user account page and/or talk page, per WP:SIGLINK. To do this click "My preferences" at the top right and in the area where it lets you choose a custom signature, make sure that it's formatted as wikitext, or you can leave the custom signature text field blank to use the default signature. Thanks, Compdude123 03:31, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

Perhaps I should mention why it's important to do this. It will allow people to easily access your user page as well as your talk page with links to both so that you can be contacted. This page is pretty much where others can send you a personal message. —Compdude123 03:37, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

Will do! Chris.Bristol (talk) 13:59, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

Pyynikki Circuit[edit]

Hi Chris. Thanks for translating Pyynikki Circuit. I see that you added the note "Content in this edit is translated from the existing Dutch Wikipedia article at Pyynikki Circuit; see its history for attribution" to the end of the article. This should actually have gone in your edit summary so that it appears on the article's history page (see Wikipedia:Translation#How to translate). Could you make an edit to the article and use the note as your edit summary? You could use the edit to remove the note from the text of the article. Cordless Larry (talk) 07:55, 25 May 2017 (UTC)

Actually, you'll need to change the wording slightly, to something like "Content from previous edits is translated...". Cordless Larry (talk) 07:58, 25 May 2017 (UTC)
