Here are some useful tips to ease you into the Wikipedia experience:
- First, take a look at the Wikipedia Tutorial, and perhaps dabble a bit in the test area.
- When you have some free time, take a look at the Manual of Style and Policies and Guidelines. They can come in very handy!
- Remember to use a neutral point of view!
- If you need any help, feel free to post a question at the Help Desk
- Explore, be bold in editing pages, and, most importantly, have fun!
Also, here are some odds and ends that I find useful from time to time:

Trude Dybendahl merger with Trude Dybendahl Hartz
Hi. I read about Abdel Frasheri in my Polish book and I based an article in its. This book is meant like "The Chronicle of Sport". Regards, Szoltys 08:35, 25 August 2006 (UTC)
Thanks for catching the errors on the Swedish relay team in 1954
Thanks for catching the Arthur Olsson link for the 1954 FIS Nordic World Ski Championships. An article on Olsson has been created. I also put the link for Stephanie Böhler as well. Have a nice day. Chris 14:21, 4 December 2006 (UTC)
Thanks for the catch on Skobov
Thanks for the correction on the Yuri Skobov article. With User:SndrAndrss being blocked right now and in the process of getting himself indefinitely blocked right now, we may be able to repair some of the damage that he is done which is quite extensive from what I have seen so far.

All the right moves
I agree that those moves were crazy. I have left a note for an administrator interested in Russian transliteration issues. You may also want to apply for help to another admin, Alex Bakharev. --Ghirla -трёп- 14:46, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
Well, lucky you; you have found the person who actually enjoys doing this kind of cleanup :) I'll take care of the cases above and go through the category. If you find anything else of this sort, please don't hesitate to let me know—I'll help gladly. Cheers,—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); 15:37, 15 March 2007 (UTC)
- OK, the cleanup is now complete. Bring more! :)—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); 16:57, 15 March 2007 (UTC)
- Well, the "mistakes" are not necessarily mistakes—there is more than one system for romanizing Russian, with each one having its uses. The problem is not that those systems are wrong (they are not), but that using more than one system in something that's supposed to be a standardized reference is confusing. That's exactly why one system has been adopted, and that is WP:RUS. There is, of course, room for exceptions (common English usage, personal preferences of the person about whom an article is written, etc.), but overall, the more standardized the spelling is, the better.
- Anyway, Kiselyov is now taken care of. If you find more in future, just drop me a note. Thanks!—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); 20:21, 15 March 2007 (UTC)
Gunnar and Harald Eriksson
I did not know that they were separate people. I got most of this information off of FIS. If you can fix this with the information you have, then by all means do so. Thanks. Chris 19:52, 30 March 2007 (UTC)
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
