Adoption offer[edit]

Hello Ivejustbegun, I saw that you wanted to be adopted and thought that I might offer myself. I have been on Wikipedia for nearly twelve months, in which I have made over 2,200 edits, created three articles (two of which have been displayed in the 'Did You Know?' section of the Main Page), and improved an article to GA status among other things. How about it? Thanks HarrisonB - Talk 06:51, 2 February 2008 (UTC)

  • Hey there - let me chip in by saying that Harrison will make a great adopter for you - and I note that you have accepted - that's great - good luck you two. Cheers--VS talk 08:00, 2 February 2008 (UTC)
  • Excellent, thankyou for accepting me as your adopter, and thankyou VS for those kind words of endorsement (VS 'unofficially' adopted me when I was starting out). I apologise for not getting back to you earlier, I have had a very busy weekend. Now for you're first lesson; always provide an edit summary after an edit. An edit summary makes it a whole lot easier to go through the revision history of a page, basically a whole lot more convenient for other editors. A good tip is to go into My Preferences (which is located at the top right corner when you are logged in), click the Editing tab and check the box that says Remind me to provide an edit summary (or something on the lines of that). Now I will check your contributions often, and just to warn you I will hound you on it. Thanks, and tell me about yourself. I see that you are interested in celebrities? Thanks HarrisonB - Talk 10:39, 3 February 2008 (UTC)
  • Ah, I am a male 14 year old from Sydney. Are you male? Female? HarrisonB - Talk 04:56, 4 February 2008 (UTC)
  • Ok; feel free to ask me questions anytime. Do you know about Manual of Style and other wiki-rules? HarrisonB - Talk 08:43, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

Setting Up[edit]

Hi Ivejustbegun, its HarrisonB. I think it is time for you to start setting up on Wikipedia, e.g joining WikiProjects , creating a layout for your userpage, setting up Talk Page Archiving and the like. Have a look at the links and after you have read them talk to me. Thanks HarrisonB - Talk 05:47, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

Your recent edits[edit]

Hi there. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. If you can't type the tilde character, you should click on the signature button Button sig.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your name and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you! --SineBot (talk) 00:31, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Paris Hilton's My New BFF (season 2)[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Paris Hilton's My New BFF (season 2), requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be blatant advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an encyclopedia article. Please read the guidelines on spam as well as Wikipedia:FAQ/Business for more information.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.

Request to participate in University of Washington survey on tool to quickly understand Wikipedians’ reputations[edit]

Hello. I'm part of a research group at the University of Washington. In April, we met with Wikipedians to learn what they would like to know about other editors’ history and activities (within Wikipedia) when interacting with them on talk pages. The goal was to gather feedback to help design a tool that could quickly communicate useful information about other Wikipedians. We have now created a few images that we feel represent some of what our participants thought was important. We would appreciate it if you took a few minutes of your time to complete an online survey that investigates whether or not these images would be useful to you. Your quick contribution would be very valuable to our research group and ultimately to Wikipedia. (When finished, the code for this application will be given over to the Wikipedia community to use and/or adjust as they see fit.)

We are particularly interested in feedback from new editors! We want to make sure this tool meets your needs.

Willing to spend a few minutes taking our survey? Click this link.

Please feel free to share the link with other Wikipedians. The more feedback, the better! The survey is completely anonymous and takes less than 10 minutes to complete. All data is used for university research purposes only.

Thank you for your time! If you have any questions about our research or research group, please visit our user page. Commprac01 (talk) 23:16, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 29[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Jessica Jung, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Model (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.

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.
