Welcome to Wikipedia!
Hey there, NBSTVM! I'm glad you decided to register a new account here on Wikipedia. We're always looking for new editors to help improve the project, because believe me, there's always something to be done! Wikipedia often seems very large to newcomers (it did to me, at least), so I've put together this little guide to help you get started. I hope this helps, and as always, happy editing!

Some Quick Tips

  • Don't be afraid to make mistakes - Be Bold! That's how things get done, and there is always someone around to help you out if you need it.
  • Remember to sign your posts on talk pages, like this one. You can click Button sig.png this button on your editing toolbar, or just type in four tildes (~~~~) That way, people know who they're talking to and who to go to if they have a question for you.
  • Take some time to read a few of the help files, especially if you're new to Wikimarkup. Knowing the basics can save a lot of time and frustration down the road. I've provided some of these pages, as well as some common policies, at right.
  • If you ever have a question, there are plenty of places to ask! You can come talk to me, add the code {{helpme|your question}} to your talk page here, post a question on the talk page of the article you have a question about, or post something on the Help Desk or Reference Desk.
  • Check out the ways to get involved below - each of these suggestions are good ways for a new editor to get involved in the Wikipedia project.
  • Most importantly, get out there and edit! Thanks again for signing on!

Unhelpful edits[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to make constructive contributions to Wikipedia, at least one of your recent edits, such as the one you made to Marshmallow, did not appear to be constructive and has been reverted or removed. Please use the sandbox for any test edits you would like to make, and take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. In particular, please review the guidelines at WP:POINT for information as to why this kind of edit is considered inappropriate. --Icarus (Hi!) 04:39, 6 October 2007 (UTC)

Information.svg Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did to Marshmallow. Your edits appear to constitute vandalism and have been reverted. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Thank you. --Icarus (Hi!) 04:54, 6 October 2007 (UTC)

In response to the comments left on my talkpage: I was going to do my best to assume good faith (as per Wikipedia guidelines) despite my personal incredulity as to your sincerity, but the unbelievably over-the-top nature of the comments you have left on Talk:Marshmallow make that a pointless formality in this case. While the onus of evidence is usually on those making a claim, toasting marshmallows is such an incredibly common practice that you might as well ask for a source that the sky is blue. You are certainly free to provide a source to support your claim that this is a widely abandoned practice if you want to maintain your position. --Icarus (Hi!) 05:17, 6 October 2007 (UTC)

Nuvola apps important.svg Please stop. If you continue to vandalize Wikipedia, as you did to Marshmallow, you will be blocked from editing. --Icarus (Hi!) 03:24, 7 October 2007 (UTC)
