Welcome to Wikipedia, MediaAddict! Thank you for your contributions. I have been editing Wikipedia for some time, so if you have any questions feel free to leave me a message on my talk page. You can also check out Wikipedia:Questions or type {{help me}} at the bottom of this page. Here are some pages that you might find helpful:

Also, when you post on talk pages you should sign your name using four tildes (~~~~); that will automatically produce your username and the date. I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian!

Your recent edits[edit]

Thank you for contributing to Wikipedia. As I was going through your your contributions log, I noticed that some of your edits were not in line with our policies concerning reliable sources and external links. Here are a few tips that you should bear in mind:

  • External wikis are almost never considered reliable because they can be edited by anyone, and there is often no way to know whether the information is true or not.
  • Adding references to Wikipedia itself is also discouraged for the same reasons, and because it would be easy to fabricate information by simply adding text to one article, using that article as a reference in another article, and then using the second article as a reference for the first article.
  • Primary sources should also be avoided because they are often unreliable.
  • Original research is discouraged because it is often subject to opinion, and the main goal of Wikipedia is to create a neutral, reliable encyclopedia that is easy to use.
  • There are several websites that should be avoided as sources if possible.
  • There is a proper way to add references to other materials (click on this link to learn more).
  • The minor edit checkbox should only be used when the edit is superficial and would be very unlikely to be subject to dispute (such as fixing a typo or improper formatting), since it causes some people to not see the edit on their watchlists.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask me on my talk page. I hope you have fun editing Wikipedia! Face-smile.svg — SamXS 23:58, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
