Hi, welcome to the Wikipedia! Glad to have you around. Anyway, a few hints:

  • You can read how to format articles at Wikipedia:Manual of Style
  • You can read all the official stuff at Wikipedia:Policies
  • You can sign your name using three tildes, like this: ~~~ . Adding a fourth one puts in a timestamp as well.

Have fun, and happy editing! Yours, Meelar 22:17, 6 Mar 2004 (UTC)


Hi Eoghan

Unfortunately I don't speak Gaelic, but I wondered if you've seen http://gd.wikipedia.org - if not, you might be interested in contributing to it.

In the meantime, keep up the good work here on English Wikipedia! Warofdreams 18:31, 6 May 2004 (UTC)[]


Hi Eoghan. Edits from 209.234.96.194 have now been reattributed to you. Regards Kate Turner | Talk 07:19, 2004 Sep 4 (UTC)

Hi[edit]

Hi Eoghan!

Whoops...[edit]

Eoghan, I am extremely sorry for this belated response. I got your messege on my talk page, but somehow forgot about it when other stuff was posted below it. I like your proposal, it has a lot of merit. I have begun to suspect that it is very difficult to enact technological changes to Wikipedia. For instance, for the 4 months I've been here, I've been hearing about how the software is going to automatically turn double hyphens -- into actual en- or em-dashes for us, but it hasn't happened yet. User:Kate has mentioned how the developers are often busy and over-worked, (which is odd, considering how much free help they could get from all of the programmers in the community). In any case, I just feel awful about not having responded earlier, I don't know where my head was, sorry. func(talk) 00:43, 19 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Re: Glasgow East[edit]

My issue with the piece was its content and tone - the way Labour's selection battle was described, the conversational/commentary style. Wiki is neither newspaper nor is it a blog. If you look at other by-election articles, you'll see that the campaign details are not always described in the manner of your edit. doktorb wordsdeeds 17:19, 12 August 2008 (UTC)[]

Hi,

I'm not sure which specific stylistic convention you're referring to there. I made some effort to be factual and give citations. If you have an alternative phrasing that allows the facts of the selection process, etc. to be presented, I would be happy to see it. Eoghan (talk) 19:05, 12 August 2008 (UTC)[]

Hello. I have looked at your example, and having re-viewed the deleted text, I think the best resolution is for your section to be reinstated, and then for it to be edited from there. I was perhaps hasty in my deletion doktorb wordsdeeds 21:16, 13 August 2008 (UTC)[]
