Regarding adoption[edit]

Hi Les733! I'm Twinzor, and I noticed you were interested in being adopted, and I thought I'd offer myself as an adopter. You are of course free to choose whether you'll accept me or if you'd rather want someone else as your adopter. What I have in mind would be a kind of freeform adoption program, where we could concentrate on whatever you feel you need help with. Please drop me a message on my talk page (you may disregard the info about talkback at the top of the page, simply head to my talkpage and click the button for starting a new discussion)! :) — Twinzor Say hi! - Do I suck or rock? 10:09, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for accepting me as your adopter! :) I've created a subpage on my userspace for us to discuss matters related to your adoption, so that it's easier to follow and wont clutter our talk pages. You can ask any questions you'd like there! The page is located here: User:Twinzor/Adoption/Les733 and I've written my reply to your message there. See you there! :) — Twinzor Say hi! - Do I suck or rock? 18:34, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

Long time no see![edit]

Hey Les! Haven't heard from you in a while. How have you been? I hope the holidays and your exams went well. Hope to hear from you soon! :) — Twinzor Say hi! 17:04, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

In general, a person or organization added to a list, as on Comparison of free web hosting services, should have a pre-existing article to establish notability. If you wish to create such an article, please confirm that your subject is notable according to Wikipedia's notability policy. Thank you. OSborn arfcontribs. 23:52, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

I'm using User:MiszaBot_III to archive my talk page, I added:

|archiveheader = {{talk archive navigation}}
|maxarchivesize = 40K
|counter = 1
|minthreadsleft = 4
|minthreadstoarchive = 1
|algo = old(31d)
|archive = User talk:OSborn/Archive %(counter)d

to the top of the user talk page, it should work for you too (just change "OSborn" in there.) There's a how-to page about it at User:MiszaBot/Archive HowTo. OSborn arfcontribs. 18:47, 27 March 2011 (UTC)

Nice to meet you at the edit-a-thon :)[edit]

Hi Leslie, it was so nice to meet you at the Wikipedia Art And Feminism Meetup this Saturday in San Francisco. I'm glad to know I'm not the only editor who finds references to be a little tricky! :) Thank you for contributing to the topic of Feminism and modern architecture and Feminist theory. What a unique and important perspective you're sharing with Wikipedia. :) Hope to get to talk with you more at the next meetup. Sincerely, Msannakoval (talk) 03:57, 3 February 2014 (UTC)
