Float around for awhile until you find something that tickles your fancy. One easy way to do this is to hit the random page button in the navigation bar to the left. There are also many great committees and groups that focus on particular jobs. My personal favorite stomping grounds are Wikipedia:Translation into English and Wikipedia:Cleanup for sloppy articles. Finally, the Wikimedia Foundation has several other wiki projects that you might enjoy.

There are a few crucial points to keep in mind when editing. Be civil with users, strive to maintain a neutral point of view, verify your information, and show good etiquette like signing your comments with four tildes like this: ~~~~ If you have any more questions, always feel free to ask me anything on my talk page or ask the true experts at Wikipedia:Help desk. Again, welcome! -- Draeco 20:41, 27 January 2006 (UTC)

Islam by country[edit]

Firstly, you need to cite scholarly sources. Secondly... please learn syntax... if you're worried about an article's neutrality add {{NPOV}} to the top of the page and write why on the talk page. Please read the welcome FAQs from above. Thank you. gren グレン 00:01, 18 April 2006 (UTC)


Christianity[edit]

Geotheone101, please stop removing a sourced population figure to replace it with your own unsourced one. If you feel the current figure to be an underestimate, find a credible source that says so, and we can present the figure as a range, as was done on Islam and Muslim.Timothy Usher 19:38, 12 May 2006 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 5[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited North Governorate, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Koura. 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.
