If you are stuck, and looking for help, please come to the New contributors' help page, where experienced Wikipedians can answer any queries you have! Or, you can just type {{helpme}} and your question on this page, and someone will show up shortly to answer. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

We hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! By the way, you can sign your name on talk and vote pages using four tildes, like this: ~~~~. If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question to the village pump or ask me on my talk page. Again, welcome! -- TRPoD aka The Red Pen of Doom 13:59, 12 May 2013 (UTC)

Attribution language[edit]

I’m “100% certain” that you’re correct about the need for attribution. We can’t say “Swartz hanged himself”; nor can we say “Swartz reportedly hanged himself”. The language we’re discussing does meet the guideline: “A spokeswoman for New York’s Medical Examiner reported he had hanged himself.”

I’d now like to draw your attention to the Arrest and state charges section. See Talk. And do reread WP:ER (more than once) before editing. --Dervorguilla (talk) 23:59, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

my Former User Name[edit]

I had the User:Mr.grantevans2 user name but have not edited in a long time and have forgotten my password for that user name. May122013 (talk) 02:27, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

Edit first, ask questions later[edit]

Go ahead and add the material. If it isn’t removed, you can add more.

You can also remove material. If it’s restored, discuss at Talk. --Dervorguilla (talk) 05:03, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

thanks, I never really understood this process before. May122013 (talk) 12:13, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

Edit warring at Rob Ford[edit]

Your actions there seem single-mindedly to undo what appears to be a consensus at the talk page. You have already filed multiple actions and the consensus seems be against your perspective here. Please note if you continue to try to war against consensus by reverting, WP:BLPBAN, a block or other sanction may be the result. This is a final warning.

ok, thanks for the warning. May122013 (talk) 11:17, 7 June 2013 (UTC)


Your comments at WP:BLPN are, even if you don't feel they are, accusations of sockpuppetry. I suggest you either submit a WP:SPI or retract your comments. Regards, GiantSnowman 16:17, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

I responded on GiantSnowman's talk page May122013 (talk) 21:17, 7 June 2013 (UTC)
  • I wholeheartedly agree with GiantSnowman here. Leaving the comments without SPI or striking is unacceptable. Dennis Brown / / © / @ 16:21, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

Hello. There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. Thank you. — The Potato Hose 16:39, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

I responded at ANI May122013 (talk) 21:17, 7 June 2013 (UTC)


For retracting your baseless accusation. That shows character. — The Potato Hose 04:02, 8 June 2013 (UTC)

Agreed, many thanks. GiantSnowman 08:40, 10 June 2013 (UTC)
