Welcome new user
Hello, User:Jwyates, I see you've opened an account and have begun to make edits to the encyclopaedia. You are most welcome and thank you for the constructive edits you have made .
I'm Lumos3, one of the numerous editors here. I voluntarily work as a welcomer to newcomers. I'm posting below a standard welcome box with lots of useful links. I hope you get pleasure from editing and making Wikipedia an even better resource for the community.
I myself have come to the conclusion that editing and watching a topic is a great way to learn about it in depth and stay on top of current developments in a field.
Wikipedia encourages new members to jump in and make corrections and contributions to articles. I found the Be bold guideline particularly encouraging when I was getting started. I also found the Wikipedia:Cheatsheet a useful quick reference for editing the source text but our new VisualEditor makes editing much easier (This needs to be turned on in your user preferences under beta features).
If you have any questions about the project don't hesitate to contact me on my talk page here :- User_talk:Lumos3.
