Hi David Woodward, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thanks for your contributions to the coolest online encyclopedia I know of =). I sure hope you stick around; we're always in need of more people to create new articles and improve the ones we already have. You'll probably find it easiest to start with a tutorial of how the wikipedia works, and you can test stuff for yourself in the sandbox. When you're contributing, you'll probably find the manual of style to be helpful, and you'll also want to remember a couple important guidelines. First, write from a neutral point of view, second, be bold in editing pages, and third, use wikiquette. Those are probably the most important ones, and you can take a look at some others at the policies and guidelines page. You might also be interested in how to write a great article and possibly adding some images to your articles.

Be sure to get involved in the community – you can contact me at my talk page if you have any questions, and you can check out the village pump, where lots of wikipedians hang out and discuss things. If you're looking for something to do, check out the community portal. And whenever you ask a question or post something on a talk page, be sure to sign your name by typing ~~~~.

Again, welcome! It's great to have you. Happy editing! --Spangineer (háblame) 16:03, Jun 10, 2005 (UTC)


Hi David, could you have a look at the Echidna page and my comment on the discussion page about the distribution claim. All best :) 04:02, 2 January 2006 (UTC)


Hi... you put this on the clean up page, and I was wondering if you'd be willing to take cracks at it with me. I started to prosify and refize this monster, and just now once I had some actual content built up moved all the inbody link farms (nearly all look like GOOD resources) to the talk page for storage and use. I left the massive external links section for now--this article looks to be overflowing with good RS stuff. Any help would be appreciated. · XP · 15:32, 29 August 2006 (UTC)

i'm not bored[edit]

So i'm not putting an edit in here. I'm frequently individually pathosed by cedillas.[1]

thus i here buy !declare:
what WP:sandbox is not
Sandbox Manifesto 0.1
WP:user:David woodward:notDavid woodward'sockpuppet
rool 0)outside, in Wikipedia: every edit you make, when you are adding text, you must make at least one typo or smellling mistake to feed the editors.
rool 1)play in the sandbox
rool 2)rip off that guy who wrote that book about kindergardens & stuff
rool 3)if you mark your line breaks by a single return, you can write pottery in the source which DOES NOT EXIST in the article.
rool 4)dont shit in the sandbox, and dont let your Farnarkling cat shit in the sandbox.

It might sound like fun, everybody screams because you did something, soooo disgusting -- and thats grate -- but then all of a Soudan, youse are all laughing sooooo hard, Somebody FORGETS where exactly it was the shit you did or you let your fucking cat do* is, and Somebody steps in it, or puts Their Hand in it or WORSE. ill leave it up to your imagination .

no Shit In The Sandbox.^
  • no, i'm serious here,

they give you toxoplasmosids or summat, make a mouse into a super-fucking-hero this stuff does - - mouse has no fear, then blam . cat doesn't care that mouse has courage of three large Admins + a Cabalist + two jimbos + probably Larry Wall's second cousin once removed#. Cat proposes the dialectical points of several teeth AND but not OR claws . Toxo gets into cat where it needs to be to reproduce -- cat shits in the sandbox and we get back to the laughing so hard bit. Such is life. I'll see you where I am going.

^this also works preety well outside the sandbox, in Wikipedia, butt im completely WP:NPOV aboot what you do in RT.

  1. when you're adding up the courage points,

you only get to count the cousin once, though ? right ? because, because he IS a second cousin, but only once removed.

My apologies to the kind Wikipedians[edit]

Any Editors, Admins, Wikipedians and visitors to the Wikipedia namespace. I would like to apologise for my errant behaviour over the last few days. I must say i do recommend the therapeutic benefits of playing in the Wikipedia:sandboxes; but please learn from my mistakes and don't take your enthusiasm too far in the sandbox, and remember, your Wikimanners when you go back to the editing.

Waterbowl offerings, Maitreya Project[edit]

This waterbowl offering has been made in December of 2007, personally by me and several other FPMT members. DO NOT WORRY. Information may be available at the Root Institute main website. Although I clearly understand Wikipedia policies ("'I heard if from somewhere' is not acceptable" - Jimbo Wales), do not worry. Information is accurate. Guaranteed. 100%. (smiles) Prowikipedians (talk) 08:32, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Hello. Sorry for not replying recently, as I have been fairly busy recently. The waterbowl offerings were made during December 2007, at the original site, which is in Bodhgaya. I will try to make the appropriate source available, but please do not consider it vandalism. I fully understand Wikipedia's policies, however, I really wish to make it known, since FPMT may not post everytime. =) But definitely, I WILL try to find a reference.

Rothbury Pics[edit]

Thanks David for contributing those memorial photos for the Rothbury Riot article which I started 2 years ago and for adding some wikilinks. Afraid I just don't leave Melbourne enough to chase up some of the sites I write about and take photos myself. --Takver (talk) 09:23, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

NSW articles[edit]

David, would you be willing to work with me on any New South Wales articles? I'm trying to find editors to collaborate with on things at the moment! Ta --Litherlandsand (talk) 14:24, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

Wood Pellets: USA[edit]

There has been a lot of work done recently in my area of Maine to bring bulk pellet delivery, and wood pellet heating to the public. Maine is one of the poorest states in country (old population very little industry) however there are many trees. ~80% of the state heats with heating oil and too many people have to make hard decisions when winter is particularly cold or long. Numerous state bureaucracies, tasks forces, non-profits, and a couple of educational institutions and private businesses have been involved in trying to build the regulatory and commercial environment that would allow Mainers to heat with a local and renewable fuel. For sometime Maine Energy Systems the primary business involved with this movement was mentioned on the wood pellet page. I appreciate that WP is an encyclopedia of sorts and not a marketing tool, however I believe it is worthwhile to have more in the US section of the wood pellets page than ...some companies import European boilers.

Could you help me to understand what would be appropriate in this section that is more informative to people interested in wood pellet heat? I am completely new to Wikipedia and really would like to make sure I practice proper etiquette. In case you haven't guessed the idea that my neighbors know they can heat with a fuel that they can afford, creates jobs, keeps money in the region, and is renewable matters to me. And I think that it is notable information, I just would like to know what I need to make sure I say (and keep out) when I try and make sure it is included on Wikipedia.

Sorry for the long talk, this probably isn't even the correct forum to discuss this, sorry for that as well. I have and will continue for answers for myself, but any response you can give me will surely prove helpful. Thanks Nineteen85EAGLE (talk) 18:22, 19 July 2011 (UTC)

Hey Nineteen85EAGLE, your account seems to be closed down, so i will reply here. The reason i was editing that page is that i am in favour of wood pellets, but if the arguments come across as marketing, or trying to push a point; they are likely to put people off. Please read about Wikipedia policy: Wikipedia:Neutral_point_of_view is a good place to start re this issue.
Rather than just list companies, do some research on the companies, what are they doing, how big are they, were do they sell, etc, and then put this sort of information in but without highlighting the company names - use good sources, company pages are usually good for that, and people can follow the links to get the marketing information - it just doesn't belong on WP. David Woodward ☮ ♡♢☞☽ 05:36, 20 July 2011 (UTC)

Hello David, I have been working on putting together a Maine Energy Systems page and believe that I have put together a fairly good Wikipedia page. If you have a moment could you take a look at it and give some feedback it is User:Nineteen85EAGLE/Maine Energy Systems. As I mentioned before I am trying very hard to explain the notable work being done in my area in a way which is appropriate for wp. This is my first page, and I want to make sure that it is a sensible use of wp before I hunt down the rest of the references and realize I can't put it up for WP:SOAP reasons. Thanks very much for your helpful advice earlier, I believe I have followed it well. Nineteen85EAGLE (talk) 18:10, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

More Joyous[edit]

More Joyous inquiry is bigger that just Tom Waterhouse or the horse. So expecting that it would become a significant item like Fine Cotton. Alternatively, do you think it would be better to have a heading called Controversial events. for me the More Joyous inquiry stands alone and is better outside of betting or media heading.Reflexio (talk) 04:08, 14 May 2013 (UTC)


Please use high quality references per WP:MEDRS such as review articles or major textbooks. Note that review articles are NOT the same as peer reviewed articles. A good place to find medical sources is TRIP database Thanks.

Disambiguation link notification for September 26[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Coalbed methane, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Decommissioning (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.

Coalbed methane confusion[edit]

I note that you added a section on a water pollution site in Pennsylvania to the Coalbed methane article. However, your text says that the pollution was due to shale gas extraction, which is a subject very different from coalbed methane. Could you clear up the contradiction? If it was indeed due to shale gas, then it properly belongs in either Shale gas in the United States, or better yet, in the Marcellus natural gas trend article. Thanks. Plazak (talk) 13:06, 9 October 2013 (UTC)

thanks Plazak, i have removed from CBM article and moved to shale gas. David Woodward ☮ ♡♢☞☽ 13:44, 9 October 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for moving it. Looking at the (properly referenced) quote you added, I'm afraid that Prof. Vengosh is woefully confused about the various US environmental laws. When I have time, I'll have to quote US EPA sources that contradict him. But yours is a good addition. Plazak (talk) 14:11, 9 October 2013 (UTC)

OER inquiry[edit]

Hi David Woodward, I'm sending you this message because you're one of about 300 users who have recently edited an article in the umbrella category of open educational resources (OER) (or open education). In evaluating several projects we've been working on (e.g. the WIKISOO course and WikiProject Open), my colleague Pete Forsyth and I have wondered who chooses to edit OER-related articles and why. Regardless of whether you've taken the WIKISOO course yourself - and/or never even heard the term OER before - we'd be extremely grateful for your participation in this brief, anonymous survey before 27 April. No personal data is being collected. If you have any ideas or questions, please get in touch. My talk page awaits. Thanks for your support! - Sara FB (talk) 20:38, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
