Howdy, Gracenotes/Archive 1, Welcome to Wikipedia!

Thank you for your contributions, you seem to be off to a good start. Hopefully you will soon join the vast army of Wikipediholics! If you need help on how to title new articles see the naming conventions, and for help on formatting the pages visit the manual of style. For general questions goto Wikipedia:Help or the FAQ, if you can't find your answer there check the Village Pump (for Wikipedia related questions) or the Reference Desk (for general questions)! There's still more help at the Tutorial and Policy Library. Plus, don't forget to visit the Community Portal. If you have any more questions after that, feel free to ask me directly on my user talk page.

Additional tips

Here's some extra tips to help you get around in the 'pedia!

Be Bold!!

You can find me at my user page or talk page for any questions. Happy editing, and we'll see ya 'round. Smile icon.png

A personalized newbie template! I’m not sure whether I should feel flattered or insulted. After all, I do consider myself to be well-versed in WikiMarkup and the Wikipedia pages are my other Bible. My sandbox edits were to test my nifty sig, which (in this case) relied upon a lynchpin solution and not some deeper error in syntax. But thanks, Joe! I guess I’ll put a “Welcome to Wikipedia” thing on your user page too. Or not. :)
Best wishes, Gracenotes T § 23:59, 22 February 2006 (UTC)

It was flattery of course. I didn't look at the sandbox, but i did see ur contribs. I like to make sure everyone has a welcome message, cause then they can't complain they never got one. See Wikipedia:Welcoming committee/members, there's at least a few. :) Joe I 00:33, 23 February 2006 (UTC)
Oh, all right. Thanks, then! I'm more of a wikignome, but it's great to know that a well-compounded meet 'n' greet welcome has reached little ol' me and others who don't want to feel left out. Now that my signature works, this is Gracenotes T § signing out at 20:18, 23 February 2006 (UTC).

Influenza FAC

Hi there. I hope I've dealt with the stylistic problems you noticed in the way you wanted. Any other suggestions or comments would be most welcome. Thanks for contributing to this FAC. TimVickers 16:21, 24 October 2006 (UTC)

Coca tea

Hi Notes! You asked me how come the Coca tea is not addictive; well, it is not more addictive than playing Quake, or more accuratelly, not more than drinking coffee. There is a very good site I found, sadly in Spanish, that explains a lot of things, and makes the analogy between grapes and wine; it doesn't metter how many grapes you eat, you will not end up drank. I will try to source the article a bit more. Mariano(t/c) 07:49, 27 October 2006 (UTC)

Welcome to Esperanza!


Welcome, Gracenotes, to Esperanza! As you might know, all the Esperanzians share one important goal: the success of this encyclopedia. Within that, we then attempt to strengthen the community bonds, and be the "approachable" side of the project. All of our ideals are held in the Charter, the governing document of the association.

Now that you are a member you should read the guide to what to do now or you may be interested in some of our programs. A quite important program is Stressbusters, which seeks to support editors who have encountered any stress from their Wikipedia events, and are seeking to leave the project. So far, Esperanza can be credited with the support and retention of several users. We will send you newsletters to keep you up to date. Also, we have a calendar of special events, member birthdays, and other holidays that you can add to and follow.

In addition to these projects, several more missions of Esperanza are in development, and are currently being created at Esperanza/Proposals.

If you have any other questions, concerns, comments, or general ideas, Esperanzian or otherwise, know that you can always contact our administrator general Natalya by email or talk page. Consider introducing yourself at the Esperanza talk page! Alternatively, you could communicate with fellow users via our IRC channel, #wikipedia-esperanza (which is also good for a fun chat or two :). If you're new to IRC, you may find help at an IRC tutorial. I thank you for joining Esperanza, and look forward to working with you in making Wikipedia a better place to work!

Your user name...

Your user name is pretty similar to that of another editor here, User:Grace Note. Would you mind changing your username? There's currently a discussion on the administrators' notice board about you and Grace Note, and how it would be easy to confuse your names. At minimum, you should probably post a note on your user page saying that you are not Grace Note. --Idont Havaname (Talk) 01:06, 30 October 2006 (UTC)

"Possums are irrelevant to how polite one's maternal parentage is" made me snarf my coffee! Thanks! :) - UtherSRG (talk) 15:04, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

Historical Examples of Victory Disease

The changes to Historical Examples of Victory Disease looked OK to me. I likewise found the terrorism material a bit questionable, and I'm a religious freethinker who never voted for anyone named Bush.

Edit summaries

Hi there! Thanks for reverting the Mick Box article. One comment though: Please take care with calling people's edits "vandalism" in edit summaries, as you did here. If the person makes a mistake or was trying to get something to work (it looks like they were trying to insert an image but couldn't figure it out) it can be sort of harsh to call it vandalism. Also, it is important to place proper warnings on user Talk pages - in this case you could use {{test}} or {{test1}}. Thanks! --Aguerriero (talk) 22:49, 4 November 2006 (UTC)

Sorry! I'm usually careful about when to use "Restore" instead of "Rollback Vandal" using popups. In this case, was probably testing. This IP has only made 2 edits, so it's hard to tell. I suppose that I was noting that incongruity of the constructive edit with the nonconstructive one, and shorthandedly noted the latter with the buzz word "vandalism." I'll add the {{test1}} notice on their talk page. Thanks for noticing! Gracenotes T § 22:59, 4 November 2006 (UTC)

November Esperanza Newsletter

Program Feature: Admin Coaching (needs coaches!)
Admin Coaching needs coaches!!! If you are an administrator, or even a generally experienced user, do consider signing up to be a coach.

Admin Coaching, now being coordinated by HighwayCello, is a program for people who want help learning some of the more subtle aspects of Wikipedia policy and culture. People are matched with experienced users who are willing to offer coaching. The program is designed for people who have figured out the basics of editing articles; they're not newcomers any more, but they might want some help in learning new roles. In this way, Esperanza would help keep hope alive for Wikipedia because we would always be grooming the next generation of admins.

What's New?
The Tutorial Drive is a new Esperanza program! In an effort to make complicated processes on Wikipedia easier for everyone, Esperanza working to create and compile a list of tutorials about processes here on Wikipedia. Consider writing one!
A discussion on how Esperanza relates to the encyclopedia has been started; please add your thoughts.
Many thanks to MiszaBot, courtesy of Misza13, for delivering the newsletter.
  • The list of proposed programs has been updated, with some proposals being archived.
  • There is now a new program: the Tutorial Drive! Consider writing a tutorial on something you are good at doing on Wikipedia.
  • The suggestion of adding a cohesive look to all the Esperanza pages is being considered; join the discussion if you are interested!
  • In order to make a useful interlanguage welcome template, those involved in translation projects will be asked what English Wikipedia policies are most important and confusing to editors coming from other language Wikipedias.
  • A discussion of Esperanza's role in Wikipedia is being held, with all thoughts of all Esperanzians wanted!
  • Shreshth91 informed everyone that he will be leaving the Esperanza council as life is rather busy; his spot will be filled by the runner up from the last election, HighwayCello.

Although having the newsletter appear on everyone's userpage is desired, this may not be ideal for everyone. If, in the future, you wish to receive a link to the newsletter, rather than the newsletter itself, you may add yourself to Wikipedia:Esperanza/Newsletter/Opt Out List.


Hi, you just revered to a vandalised version. Have corrected it. --Michael Johnson 01:16, 7 November 2006 (UTC)


The proof assumes that the limit of the linearized form is equal to the limit of the original function. That is non-trivial; in fact, it requires the same epsilons and deltas as proving the original rule. It's a helpful way to understand the rule; but it's not a proof.

First edit day

Esperanza congratulates you on a first edit anniversary!!
On behalf of all Esperanza members, I wish to take this opportunity to congratulate you and thank you for your wonderful edits to Wikipedia in your first year!!!!!--File Éireann 15:55, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

I hope you continue to contribute for many more wonderful years to come, as you are a talented and friendly user! Enjoy your day! Jam01 05:38, 16 November 2006 (UTC)

Hi, I wanted to make sure that you saw another nice orange box at the top of your screen. Oh yeah, and the first edit day thing too. Congratulations, and thank you for sticking around Wikipedia. Far too many people sign up for an account, make a couple of edits, and then disappear. --Kyoko 06:45, 16 November 2006 (UTC)


Wishing Gracenotes/Archive 1 a very Happy First Edit Day!

Have a fantastic day!

From the Wikipedia Birthday Committee

Happy edit day! And I absolutely agree with Kyoko. Randfan 20:17, 16 November 2006 (UTC)

Hey thanks for the explanation...but i think ill stick to just editing mistakes in content and wont be adding any original content from now on...too much of a bother thanks again (Lashonda 02:48, 23 November 2006 (UTC))


Hi Gracenotes!

This fat spectacled old pedagogue has left you a message concerning the "eithers" and the "ors", on the featured articles page.

A common little problem that needs addressing, band-wise, is the misunderstanding of the "number", as in "The band were singing at the Rushcutters' Bay Stadium." (ah, those were the good old days!) "The band released their first album", "The band were given the keys to the city". Take a look at Acker Dacker. I've only corrected the first few sentences.

Can I also suggest that you do a blitz on the use of "likely"? As in "Leonardo was likely a homosexual". "It was likely the loudest explosion ever to occur on the planet."

Go for it...

--Amandajm 08:41, 28 November 2006 (UTC)

Hi Gracenotes!

Thanks for getting back to me.. Yes, I really am a bit of a pain at times!

All the best! --Amandajm 23:24, 28 November 2006 (UTC)

An orange box, just for you.

You voted for Kelly Martin for Arbcom? --ElaragirlTalk|Count 19:12, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

Vandal stuff.

Thumbs up.jpg
EdBoy congratulates you on finding/having your first vandal! Yay! ☺
He says:

Congratulations! Yay, etc. Rawr. :)

Thanks for the Riemann Sum Stuff

It is useful. I have a test on it tomorrow, and I plan to see how much of what you wrote I can comprehend in the next hour. Thanks a lot for the help. Sashafklein 03:43, 7 December 2006 (UTC)

  • cc: Anyone else viewing my talk page :)
  • Subject: IRC cloaking under wikipedia/Gracenotes

This terse paragraph is simply to confirm a requested cloak on freenode channels, in order to show my wikipatriotic red, green, and blue. I would request the cloak wikipedia/Gracenotes. Thank you.

My IRC nick is the same as my username: Gracenotes. My alt nick is Gracenotes_. I also have accounts on Wikibooks (which sadly has been too much for me, with school and all, wikibooks:User:Gracenotes), Metawiki (with one edit, m:User:Gracenotes), Wikimedia Commons {commons:User:Gracenotes, nothing significant yet) and... there was one other one... oh, Wikipedia. I now have, not including this one, 745 edits.

I would appreciate the cloak. Thank you for your time.

In order to not be pestered by the autosign bot, I add my Gracenotes T § 03:47, 8 December 2006 (UTC)

An Interesting Edit...

Hello Gracenotes, I recently reverted an edit of yours to User:Buickid. But it seems like you are indeed no notorious vandal...heh, hopefully this is just a running joke between you and the user. But I do not believe he would appreciate the wordage of what he wrote changed, then again its late and my eyes are getting blurry :P....¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 07:55, 10 December 2006 (UTC)


Could you please help me to check up the grammar of the article of Cúcuta?

I hope you have a great christmas and a happy new year!--§Sir James Paul<<--wikiholic§ 17:07, 21 December 2006 (UTC)


Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. Thank you for your contributions.

Currently, you are editing without a username. You can continue to do so, as you are not required to log in to Wikipedia to read and edit articles; however, logging in will result in a username being shown instead of your IP address (yours is Logging in does not require any personal details, and there are many other benefits for logging in.

When you edit pages:

  • Please respect others' copyrights; do not copy and paste the contents from webpages directly.
  • Please use a neutral point of view when editing articles; this is possibly the most important Wikipedia policy.
  • If you are testing, please use the Sandbox to do so.
  • Do not add unreasonable contents into any articles, such as copyrighted text, advertisement messages, and text that is not related to an article's subject. Adding such content or editing articles maliciously is considered vandalism.

The Wikipedia Tutorial is a good place to start learning about Wikipedia. For now, if you are stuck, you can click the edit this page tab above, type {{helpme}} in the edit box, and then click Save Page; an experienced Wikipedian will be around shortly to answer any questions you may have. Also feel free to ask a question on my talk page. I will answer your questions as far as I can! Thank you again for contributing to Wikipedia.

Execution of Saddam Hussein

Thanks, I'm aware. :-) Now it appears that it was actually at Camp Justice, Kazimain (hopefully the sources are correct). Khoikhoi 23:46, 30 December 2006 (UTC)

Uber problem, execution of saddam

Ok, this guy has a way with words and keeps on pointing to something on talk page, God knows what, but I added few simple words and I can leave with that now, somebody did it yesterday. Viewer discretion advised. Also important links which have been here, which administrator stefans himself reverted to, have been under attack. I do not see anything wrong with that, especially saddam's last hours, again, I am calling on administrators to ban uber from screwing up this site. It is self evident this guy has self interest on this site, he keeps on spending hours and hours on it, reverting, sure he is polite, because he knows he will not last long here. Administrators, many times make a mistake, when somebody goes ranting, they side with the other guy, but again, you may be uncivil, but you are still correct, that does not change fact or anything else, there is no doubt in my mind this dude has personal interest, the way he is defending himself, the time he puts into this clearly says something. For example sfacets reversed a good website that uber reversed... (cur) (last) 21:52, 4 January 2007 Sfacets (Talk | contribs) (Undo revision 98501627 by UBeR (talk) The Times of India is spam?) There are other contles examples and I suggest good administrators start doing something for a change.


On my talk page you said Wikipedia is not a discussion forum about "impeach really predominantly from the political left", but I think that phrase is used in the first paragraph or two of the article I was talking about. That is, this was not a general thing to talk about, but I was curious if this is a correct statement to make in the article. 03:26, 9 January 2007 (UTC) Jordan
