Welcome![edit]

Or, you can just type {{help me}} on this page, followed by your question, and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Here are a few other good links for newcomers:

Speedy deletion nomination of Pcbworm[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute to Wikipedia, introducing inappropriate pages, such as Pcbworm, is not in accordance with our policies. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. The page has been nominated for deletion, in accordance with Wikipedia's criteria for speedy deletion.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay.

Your recent edits[edit]

Information icon Hello and welcome to Wikipedia. When you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion (but never when editing articles), please be sure to sign your posts. There are two ways to do this. Either:

  1. Add four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment; or
  2. With the cursor positioned at the end of your comment, 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 necessary to allow other editors to easily see who wrote what and when.

Thank you. --SineBot (talk) 12:10, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

April Fool[edit]

Regarding your creation of Pcbworm, incorrect information is not permitted in the encyclopaedia, even for a joke, even for April Fool's day. Please don't do that again.

We do, however, feature surprising articles in the "Did you know" section of the front page on 1 April. On this day we run facts that sound like they are jokes but are actually true. To get in this section you need to do rather more work. You need to write a real article and submit it at WP:DYK well in advance. You have missed the boat for this year, but if you are interested you can start thinking about a subject for next year. You can see past April Fool DYKs on this archive page by clicking on April for any year. SpinningSpark 12:43, 1 April 2014 (UTC)
