Edit Summary Request[edit]

I have noted that you edit without an edit summary. Please do your best to always fill in the summary field. This is considered an important guideline in Wikipedia. Even a short summary is better than no summary. An edit summary is even more important if you delete any text; otherwise, people may think you're being sneaky or even vandalizing. Also, mentioning one change but not another one can be misleading to someone who finds the other one more important; add "and misc." to cover the other change(s).

Help request[edit]

I am writing my first page on Wikipedia, and am having trouble locating a pic where I want it on the page. Specifically, I wish to move the picture "bocksbeutels.jpg" to the right margin next to the viniculture entry.

Can you assist?

Thanks! --NDM 04:57, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

Well, it'd be easier to do this if I could see the page. But, typically, you can change an image's alignment by adding information in the tag. So you would say, [[Image:EXAMPLE.jpg|right|thumb|150px|CAPTION GOES HERE]]. Does that help? -- Merope Talk 05:20, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

I got it! Thanks!! --NDM 05:30, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

Great! I did some clean-up of the article, formatting it per the Manual of Style. Let me know if you need anything else! Oh, and I wanted to remind you that when you leave messages on talk pages, be sure to add ~~~~ at the end of your post; this will automatically insert your signature and the time. Thanks! -- Merope Talk 05:32, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

I need to move the first line on my article "eltmann" that says "table adapted..." to a location immediately under the table on the right margin.....right beneath the mayor's name. This is an attribution footnote for this table.

As this is my first page, I would appreciate any help.

Thanks!--NDM 18:25, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. Just incorporate it into the table itself. --  Netsnipe  ►  19:30, 9 October 2006 (UTC)
Hello. I tried to add it in at the bottom but this seemed to just break the table. As its from another Wikipedia anyway, I'm not sure it's that important to say it came from de:. — Gary Kirk // talk! 19:34, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

Thanks to all who helped. I think this article looks great!--NDM 07:55, 15 October 2006 (UTC)

Your message[edit]

Hello, Expertfp1!' The best way to leave me a message is to click this which will enable you to create a new section on my talk page, so I'll see it more easily. If you need more help, try the IRC channels or if you can't, ask at the help desk as I'm going offline now. — Gary Kirk // talk! 20:12, 9 October 2006 (UTC)


You may want to convert the references listed at Eltmann to the Wikipedia:Footnotes format using <ref> tags and {{cite news}}/{{cite web}}. See my userpage for an example if you're still confused. --  Netsnipe  ►  05:41, 10 October 2006 (UTC)


I reviewed the edit you complained about at WP:AIV, and it does not appear to be vandalism. It appears this user broke up your comments to respond to them individually, but did not delete any of your comments. By using a colon (:) at the beginning of each of his comments, he indented them and made it clear they were responses. The fact that he did not sign each separate comment was confusing, and I am leaving him a note to that effect. Please feel free to contact me if you have any other questions, and (belatedly) welcome to Wikipedia! --Ginkgo100 talk · e@ 00:31, 19 October 2006 (UTC)


I hardly did anything to Eltmann. But that edit was part of a concerted effort to improve articles on German localities, which you are welcome to join. Agathoclea (talk) 21:37, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

Medal of Honor citations[edit]

I notice you are adding the medal of honor citations to boxes. Please stop doing that.--Kumioko (talk) 20:53, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

I am confused. It seems that the inclusion of the actual citation for the MOH is most appropriate on these pages. Or is your concern simply that the citations are being placed in boxes?
As an observation: the MOH pages show a bewildering diversity of formats; perhaps an effort should be made to standardize the formats of these articles? At the very least, I think that an image of the correct MOH should be present in an appropriate place in every MOH article. Your thoughts? NDM (talk) 10:21, 9 July 2009 (UTC)
Your right there are some differing formats bu typically the MOH Image goes in the infobox next to the image of the individual or alone if we don't have a picture of the recipient. In order for the article to get to Good article status the citation should be in blockquote format so I usually go with that. The boc citation formay is rarely used and its almost always required to be removed if the article goes to GA review. If you want a couple examples take a look at the MOH articles for Smedley Butler or Michael J. Daly. I hope this helps and please let me know if you have any questions. --Kumioko (talk) 11:04, 9 July 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for the informative answer. Now I understand better your previous comment and will edit these citations with that in mind.
I feel strongly that each article should have a very prominent MOH image somewhere, so that it is instantly apparent to the reader that the subject individual was someone quite extraordinary. I have made this edit to those articles that I have come across that are lacking a clear visual depiction of the MOH.NDM (talk) 02:06, 12 July 2009 (UTC)
