Welcome to Wikipedia, Christy747! 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, Ryan 06:21, August 5, 2005 (UTC)

Hi Ryan~ I don't yet know how to respond properly to a point on a talk page (that is, as a bullet point below the previous one, instead of as a separate heading), but I appreciate the introduction. Wikipedia is definitely different than UBB/PHPBB or HTML, but I think I'll learn my way around eventually. Typing four tildes is much easier than typing out information manually! I had typed out my information that way on a page earlier. Whoops. Anyway, thanks again! :) Christy747 07:39, 5 August 2005 (UTC)


I saw your VfD on Hector trevino. Just wanted to let you know, you can speedy that sort of thing also. Speedy is quicker and easier than VfD. I added the {{nn-bio}} tag to it which is meant for speeding articles about people with no assertion of notability. Once the speedy tag is there, it just takes an admin to come along and actually delete it. Happy wiki-ing. Friday (talk) 19:26, 24 August 2005 (UTC)

  • Thank you! I am still learning my way around. Christy747 19:30, 24 August 2005 (UTC)

Scouting Wikiproject[edit]

A number of wikipedians have started a Scouting Wikiproject. Currently, GSUSA is woefully underrepresented, and since yours is the few user pages linking to Gold Award, I thought you might wanna join up and help out. -- Thesquire (talk - contribs) 20:24, 1 March 2006 (UTC)

US Collaboration of the month[edit]

You have voted for Omaha, Nebraska on the USCOTM. It was selected to be this months's collaboration. You are invited to help to contribute in order to improve Omaha, Nebraska in any way possible.

Nice to meet you![edit]

Christy, it was really a pleasure to meet you today! Seemed like a whirlwind meetup and I didn't really have enough time to get to chat with everyone I would have liked to. I hope we can get together again to talk more sometime! Estreya 00:21, 30 October 2006 (UTC)

Watch those links[edit]

Hi Christy, thanks for your edit on Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness -- it reads better now. However, you broke the link. I fixed it, so no worries for now. Thanks! -- R27182818 15:16, 30 October 2006 (UTC)

  • OOPS! Sorry about that, and thanks for pointing out my mistake. Christy747 15:33, 30 October 2006 (UTC)


Congrats on finding my first secret page (the easy one) in a series of increasingly harder to find secret pages. =) Have you looked for the second, much more difficult to find page?  hmwith  talk 16:11, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being 'minor'. The only thing that's changed is that you will no longer have them marked as minor by default.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. If you are familiar with the contents of WP:MINOR, and believe that it is still beneficial to the encyclopedia to have all your edits marked as such by default, then this discussion will give you the details you need to continue with this functionality indefinitely. If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 18:56, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for May 5[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Spanish language in the United States, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Sweethearts (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.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 16:12, 5 May 2013 (UTC)

You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.
