Hello, Electricmic, 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 name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date. If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Questions, ask me on my talk page, or ask your question and then place {{helpme}} before the question on your talk page. Again, welcome! 

By the way, I noticed you undid some vandalism on the Adobe page. It's usually a good idea to check the page history to ensure you undo all changes made by a vandal (in this case, the vandal did this). When you compare between revisions, you're also given the option to undo that change by clicking on the undo tab, and then confirming that action, which is a lot easier than searching the text for spurious vandalism. I hope this is info is useful to you. (Note: I've reverted all the other vandalism caused by that user in this case.) Mindmatrix 14:27, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the notice - I've deleted the page Category talk:Religion in Pennsylvania. Yes, it's tiresome dealing with vandals; I'd rather spend my time and effort creating or expanding articles, instead of reviewing other people's changes. I'll leave a warning for that user, but when a vandal edit comes from an IP address, it's likely that other users may see that message instead, because IP addresses may be shared in some environments.

I have done a pretty extensive rewrite on this page mostly from a solid state chemistry point of view and I'd appreciate if someone would have a look at it. It does not appear there are that many magnetism fans around, but I saw your edit on the page. So, would you do me favor?

Happy 2008! Jcwf (talk) 21:43, 31 December 2007 (UTC)

Eh yah, references... ouch Problem is I have not worked in this area for 20 years or so and this is mostly from memory... Classes I took as a grad and such. :-o. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jcwf (talkcontribs) 17:39, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

March 2010[edit]

Um, please don't make edits like this one. It has been identified as vandalism and reverted. You are welcome to submit reliably sourced criticism of the phenomenon for inclusion in the article if such is available. -kotra (talk) 23:47, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Dear Kotra, Thanks for the speedy clean up of my destructive edit. This was a test/demonstration performed for my class to show that, despite being inherently vulnerable to vandalism, Wikipedia is constantly improving thanks to thoughtful contributions of volunteer editors like yourself. Many students assumed there must be a paid staff of editors working to constantly snuff out vandalism. The success of the Wikipedia project is evidence that there must be more good in the world than bad. User: Electricmic (talk) 14:33, 12 March 2010 (UTC)

That's fine, and I see your intentions were good, but please don't in the future. If nobody had reverted it (as is sometimes the case), your premise would've been disproven, as I saw recently occur here. (by the way, I can't take credit for reverting you, it was an anonymous IP) -kotra (talk) 18:00, 12 March 2010 (UTC)

Your input is needed on the SOPA initiative[edit]

Hi Electricmic,

You are receiving this message either because you expressed an opinion about the proposed SOPA blackout before full blackout and soft blackout were adequately differentiated, or because you expressed general support without specifying a preference. Please ensure that your voice is heard by clarifying your position accordingly.

Thank you.
