Hello, Howard "Dib" Montjio, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few links to pages you might find helpful:

As for your change to Piano, the article says that Cristofori is credited with the invention, - and we don't link countries such as Italy (especially as the current Italy didn't even exist at the time). Happy editing, and don't get frustrated when perhaps reverted. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 16:13, 15 August 2017 (UTC)

Copying within Wikipedia requires proper attribution[edit]

Information icon Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you copied or moved text from Fiat S.p.A. to Fiat Automobiles (your addition has since been removed). While you are welcome to re-use Wikipedia's content, here or elsewhere, Wikipedia's licensing does require that you provide attribution to the original contributor(s). When copying within Wikipedia, this is supplied at minimum in an edit summary at the page into which you've copied content. It is good practice, especially if copying is extensive, to also place a properly formatted {{copied}} template on the talk pages of the source and destination. If you have copied material between pages before, even if it was a long time ago, please provide attribution for that duplication. You can read more about the procedure and the reasons at Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia. Thank you. — Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 17:33, 27 September 2017 (UTC)

I see you are still not adding the required attribution, as required under the terms of the CC-by-SA license. Please have a look at this edit summary as an example of how it is done. Please leave a message on my talk page if you still don't understand what to do or why we have to do it. Thanks, — Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 13:32, 4 December 2017 (UTC)

October 2017[edit]

Hello, I'm Rich Smith. I noticed that in this edit to Gormiti, you removed content without adequately explaining why. In the future, it would be helpful to others if you described your changes to Wikipedia with an edit summary. If this was a mistake, don't worry, the removed content has been restored. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks. RichT|C|E-Mail 19:04, 19 October 2017 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 2[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Bigfoot in popular culture, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Tex (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)
