Hello, Kledsky, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are some links that can help you get started editing:
And for more detailed information:
- Help pages - the instruction manual, contains everything you could possibly want to know
- The five pillars of Wikipedia - our principles, or how to get on with other editors
- Manual of Style - how to format articles, where to place pictures, and other stylistic matters.
All of this information can be daunting, but if you have a question and can't find the answer, you can always ask me on my talk page or go to Wikipedia:Where to ask a question. One last thing: please sign your name when leaving messages for others on article and user talk pages using (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date. I hope you enjoy editing! --Malthusian (talk) 13:08, 19 February 2006 (UTC)
Please don't alter British spelling to American spelling on the basis that it is a 'misspelling'. Articles should be consistent, but that doesn't mean they should all follow American conventions. You may like to read these two articles: WP:spelling and Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style#National_varieties_of_English. Thanks. garik (talk) 10:58, 15 July 2009 (UTC)
Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference
Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have enabled.
On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was
true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to
false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being 'minor'. The only thing that's changed is that you will no longer be able to have them marked as minor by default. For more information on what a minor edit is, see WP:MINOR or feel to get in touch.
