How do you reference an edit to a page?
- Hi, to reference an edit to a page, first, go into the page's history. You can do that by clicking "View history", which is typically at the top right of your screen. If, for example, I wanted to reference my last edit to this talk page, I would first click View history, then I would click the radio button on Johnny Au's edit on March 30, then the radio button on my edit on March 30, then click "Compare selected revisions". I would then copy/paste the URL from that page and that will be the "diff" or the referenced edit. If you want to reference a diff in your watchlist, it's a little easier, because there is a link to "diff", which you can right-click on and "copy link address". Hope that helps.

How can I create an article?
- I've posted a welcome message on your talk pages that has a bunch of helpful links. Creating a new article from scratch is a fairly difficult task - that is, if you want to create an article that is not summarily deleted. The best thing to do is spend time improving other articles for a while to learn the ropes (but you've been here a while, so maybe that doesn't apply to you). There's also the advice in WP:your first article. — jmcgnh(talk) (contribs) 04:02, 27 October 2017 (UTC)
Hello, Hamiste076. I wanted to let you know that I’m proposing an article that you started, Mark Hamister, for deletion because it's a biography of a living person that lacks references. If you don't want Mark Hamister to be deleted, please add a reference to the article.
If you don't understand this message, you can leave a note on my talk page.
Please do not write about yourself
Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. We welcome and appreciate your contributions, but it appears you have written or added to an article about yourself, at Mark Hamister. Creating an autobiography is strongly discouraged – see our guideline on writing autobiographies. If you create such an article, it may be deleted. If what you have done in life is genuinely notable and can be verified according to our policy for articles about living people, someone else will probably create an article about you sooner or later (see Wikipedians with articles). If you wish to add to an existing article about yourself, please propose the changes on its talk page. Please understand that this is an encyclopedia and not a personal web space or social networking site. If your article has already been deleted, please see: Why was my page deleted?, and if you feel the deletion was an error, please discuss it with the deleting administrator. Thank you.
