Welcome![edit]

Welcome!

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. I noticed your work on Princess Alexia of the Netherlands when someone corrected her birth time - this seemed like a great oppertunity to find and add a verified source, so I did so. I hope you are enjoying your expierence with Wikipedia editing. Thank you for your contributions. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! By the way, you can sign your name on Talk and vote pages using three tildes, like this: ~~~. Four tildes (~~~~) produces your name and the current date. If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question to the village pump or ask me on my Talk page. Again, welcome!

VWN en WCN[edit]

Beste allemaal Al enige tijd is er een Nederlandstalig chapter in oprichting, te vinden op http://nl.wikimedia.org . Dit wordt de Vereniging Wikimedia Nederland (VWN). Je kunt je interesse om lid te worden van deze vereniging hier aangeven.

Deze vereniging gaat eind augustus/begin september een Wikimedia Conferentie in Nederland (WCN) houden, volgend op Wikimania in Boston, gedeeltelijk erop inspelend middels een aantal discussiegroepen. Om iets dergelijks te organiseren is imput erg gewenst. Dus als je wilt meehelpen, of als je interesse hebt om bij een dergelijk evenement aanwezig te zijn, geef dat dan aan op nl.wikimedia. Ik hoop daar snel je imput tegemoet te zien! Met vriendelijke groet, effeietsanders 13:39, 25 February 2006 (UTC)

Capitals[edit]

Why is "de Bruijn sequence" not written as "De Bruijn sequence", with capital D? At least in Dutch, the first character of a name has to be a capital, even if it is something like "de" or "van" (so meneer (mister) De Bruijn, but Nicolaas Govert de Bruijn) and I never learned that that's different in English. And after all, De Bruijn was a Dutchman.DaanAlberga 13:15, 8 June 2006 (UTC)

Then why is the initial d in lower case at [[1]]? Michael Hardy 23:52, 12 June 2006 (UTC)
It's lower case when in "Nicolaas de Bruijn", because then the name doesn't start with "de". It's upper case in "De Bruijn", so without first name.

Joseph Wolfe[edit]

I noticed your comment on User talk:Tizio and as he doesn't seem to be editing much these days I thought I'd look into it for you. The article at Joseph Wolfe that Tizio deleted back in 2006 was not actually about the composer you mention; it was a vanity article about a 'supply chain management professional' that was quite worthy of deletion. It doesn't look like Wikipedia has ever had an article on the particular Joseph Wolfe you were looking for, so if you have some relevant, sourceable info you might wish to create a page on him.
