In response to the message you left on my talk page...[edit]

You did nothing wrong! I noticed your edit to Political status of Puerto Rico and thought it was very well written. I simply left you a welcome message (specifically Template:WelcomeMenu), which is a common thing to do for new editors. Well you should usually fill out edit summaries, the message was not a warning at all.

If you need any suggestions about what to help with on Wikipedia I would be glad to give you some suggestions!
Sorry for the confusion,  Liam987  20:02, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

One thing you could improve about your editing (if you want suggestions) is that you should fill in the references you add instead of just leaving them as bare references. For example [1] or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page are bare references, while
"Main Page". Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia. Wikimedia. Retrieved 12 April 2012.
is a filled-out reference. Of course doing this by hand is annoying, and so there are tools to help you. The tool I used right there is a template called Cite web. A very useful tool which is even easier to use then a template is Reflinks. The best way to use this tool is to copy-and-paste
addOnloadHook(function () {
 addPortletLink(
  "p-tb",     // toolbox portlet
  "http://toolserver.org/~dispenser/cgi-bin/webreflinks.py/" + wgPageName
   + "?client=script&citeweb=on&overwrite=&limit=20&lang=" + wgContentLanguage,
  "Reflinks"  // link label
 )});
onto User:LuisGonzálezVale/common.js. This will add a link called "Reflinks" to the toolbar on the left of the page. Clicking this link will automatically fill in all bare references on the current page you are on.
Hope this helps,  Liam987  09:59, 12 April 2012 (UTC)
