Hi Metalloid, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thanks for your contributions to the coolest online encyclopedia I know of =). I sure hope you stick around; we're always in need of more people to create new articles and improve the ones we already have. You'll probably find it easiest to start with a tutorial of how the wikipedia works, and you can test stuff for yourself in the sandbox. When you're contributing, you'll probably find the manual of style to be helpful, and you'll also want to remember a couple important guidelines. First, write from a neutral point of view, second, be bold in editing pages, and third, use wikiquette. Those are probably the most important ones, and you can take a look at some others at the policies and guidelines page. You might also be interested in how to write a great article and possibly adding some images to your articles.

Be sure to get involved in the community – you can contact me at my talk page if you have any questions, and you can check out the village pump, where lots of wikipedians hang out and discuss things. If you're looking for something to do, check out the community portal. And whenever you ask a question or post something on a talk page, be sure to sign your name by typing ~~~~.

Again, welcome! It's great to have you. Happy editing! --Spangineer (háblame) 19:21, Jun 13, 2005 (UTC)

You're welcome =). Hope you enjoy your time on wikipedia, and of course, any questions, let me know. --Spangineer (háblame) 22:29, Jun 13, 2005 (UTC)


Hello Metalloid, very nice job on the ferredoxin article, I was like yeah baby, this is nice! But then I edited it too some, because the old version did contain something meaningful in laymen's terms that I could instantly grasp - you may want to override some things in my edit because they might be incorrect. I see you have some very nice edits in the biochem area, but please consider laymen like myself when writing these articles. Also I have a question about "In hydroxylating bacterial dioxygenase systems, they serve as intermediate electron-transfer carriers between reductase flavoproteins and oxygenase [2]." What does the [2] stand for? You may want to be more careful with such things ;) It's always nice to have references, if you have any, if it's not all just accumulated in your head.

Sergent Garcia[edit]

The article had been deleted for the same reason by another editor prior to me for the same reason. It had no independent references to show that it met the Wikipedia:notability (music) guidelines, it said his music is a "new fashion that he defines as salsamuffin." It says his second album " is a success in France", but no evidence, and his third is "judged less flavored by the public and becomes much less popular." There's nothing to support restoration Jimfbleak - talk to me? 07:03, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Arco Iris (samba band)[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Arco Iris (samba band) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a band or musician, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for musical topics. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
