Some cookies to welcome you! Face-grin.svg

Welcome to Wikipedia, Koloheshark! I am Sticky Parkin and have been editing Wikipedia for quite some time. I just wanted to say hi and welcome you to Wikipedia! If you have any questions, feel free to leave me a message on my talk page or by typing {{helpme}} at the bottom of this page. I love to help new users, so don't be afraid to leave a message! I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are some pages that you might find helpful:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Oh yeah, I almost forgot, when you post on talk pages you should sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); that should automatically produce your username and the date after your post. If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Questions, ask me on my talk page, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and ask your question there. Again, welcome! Sticky Parkin 22:37, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

Ten Dollar Dinners[edit]

I did go to the official network source, found at [1], and took the spelling from there. Also, which is something I didn't realize at the time, apparently Wikipedia has a problem with page titles that begin with a dollar sign, so when you moved the page to $10 Dinners it actually moved to Dinners, which would have been very difficult for anyone to find; I think it probably would have had to be listed as beginning with "Ten" regardless.

Thanks for your note; as I mentioned above, I went to the official website and took the spelling from there. I think it would be very difficult to work from a screenshot of the broadcast programme, especially since it hasn't yet aired AFAIK (I think it would be original research to do so), and also because something screwy seems to happen when a page name begins with $ -- in fact I can't guarantee what's going on, all I know is that you seemed to have moved the page to Dinners and I could only explain that by thinking that something was weird about pages that begin with $. But now I note that the redirect page starts with $, so I don't know what the heck is going on. Anyway, we have an official source that we can point to that says it is spelled "Ten Dollar Dinners", so let's go with that. Incidentally, I did assume good faith and think that you were honestly convinced, I just wanted to go with something for which I had verifiable proof.

User page[edit]

You've made a couple of edits creating pages that start with "Koloheshark:", which I've changed for you. Please don't create articles like that; even though you're putting your name in front of them, they would appear in the main article space. They must begin with "User:Koloheshark". Please take a look at the changes I've made on your user page for examples, and let me know if you have any questions.  Frank  |  talk  18:40, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Europe 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Europe/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like Germany, Italy, the Benelux countries, Iberian Peninsula, Romania, Slovenia etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. If you would like to see masses of articles being improved for Europe and your specialist country like Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon, sign up today and once the challenge starts a contest can be organized. This is a way we can target every country of Europe, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant and also sign under any country sub challenge on the page that you might contribute to! Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 09:24, 6 November 2016 (UTC)
