Hi there. You can put almost anything that you want on your user page, which is User:GSL-Nathan - it is up to you. Some people say a little about themselves, others prefer to remain anonymous. As you mentioned, you shouldn't put too many personal details, or advertizing, or anything 'offensive'. See Wikipedia:User page.
Some people put userboxes on their user page, which are small stylized boxes mentioning their interests - for example, putting {{User:N4nojohn/Userboxes/Mozart}}makes the box shown here; See Wikipedia:Userboxes/Gallery.
Wolfgang-amadeus-mozart 1.jpg This user's favorite composer is Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

Your talk page, this one, is used for communicating with other Wikipedians, just like we're doing now.
You can also create user subpages, and you might like to put links to those on your user page, so that you can easily get to them - these are areas where you can test things out or work on a proposed article before making it live. For example, if I put here [[User:GSL-Nathan/testpage]], it will look like this: User:GSL-Nathan/testpage. That will be a red link because the page does not yet exist - but you can make it just by clicking it. Thus, you might want to put something like this on your user page;
My subpages are:
* [[User:GSL-Nathan/testpage]]
* [[User:GSL-Nathan/test]]
* [[User:GSL-Nathan/something else]]
For more help, you can either;
  • Leave a message on my own talk page; OR
  • Use a {{helpme}} - please create a new section at the end of your own talk page, put {{helpme}}, and ask your question - remember to 'sign' your name by putting ~~~~ at the end; OR
  • Talk to us live, with this or this.
Best wishes,  Chzz  ►  15:46, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Welcome and introduction[edit]

Hi, GSL-Nathan. This is NOT some automated's from a real person. You can talk to me right now. Welcome to Wikipedia! I noticed you've just joined, and wanted to give you a few tips to get you started. If you have any questions, please talk to us. The tips below should help you to get started. Best of luck!  Chzz  ►  15:46, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

  • You don't need to read anything - anybody can edit; just go to an article and edit it. Be Bold, but please don't put silly stuff in - it will be removed very quickly, and will annoy people.
  • Ask for help. Talk to us live, or edit this page, put {{helpme}} and describe what help you need. Someone will reply very quickly - usually within a few minutes.
  • Edit existing articles, before you make your own. Look at some subjects that you know about, and see if you can make them a bit better. For example, Wikipedia:Cleanup#2009.
  • When you're ready, read about Your first article. It should be about something well-known, and it will need references.

Good luck with editing; please drop me a line some time on my own talk page.

There's lots of information below. Once again, welcome to the fantastic world of Wikipedia!

First page/article[edit]

{{helpme}} When adding the links to my first post, I noticed that we have no page for "Online Marketing Development" so... would it be OK for me to make a start on one?

As I am new here I wouldn't want to jump in just incase I am only ment to add to old pages to start :) Plus would it be best to do as chzz said and start the page on a test page of my user page's'?

Thanks! GSL-Nathan (talk) 20:48, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

Well, perhaps rather than an entirely new page, you could just work on market development and expand it with content about online market development? That article is rather poor at the moment- any help you can give would be great, and don't forget to cite your sources! You're welcome to join us on the IRC channel (see the link in Chzz's welcome message above) if you'd like to chat to us in real time. If you need any further help, you're welcome to contact me or Chzz on our talk pages, or you can use the helpme template again. J Milburn (talk) 22:05, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
Oh, and also, if you do add some content about online market development to the market development article, you could make online market development into a redirect to that page. J Milburn (talk) 22:06, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute to the encyclopedia, one or more of the external links you added such as to the page Pool (cue sports) do not comply with our guidelines for external links and have been removed. Wikipedia is not a collection of links; nor should it be used as a platform for advertising or promotion, and doing so is contrary to the goals of this project. Because Wikipedia uses nofollow tags, external links do not alter search engine rankings.

Multi-Gaming Clan[edit]

GSL-Nathan, welcome to Wikipedia. Good work on the Multi Gaming Clan, but I don't think there's enough material to write about a multi-gaming clan that isn't already included in Clan (Computer Gaming). At one point, I had tried to have a separate article about multi-gaming clans and it eventually got deleted and the material moved into the Clan article. --Habap (talk) 14:32, 10 December 2010 (UTC)

Multi Gaming Clan[edit]

Hi GSL-Nathan. I have no problem with you taking the content that was in Multi Gaming Clan and incorporating it elsewhere. A good way is usually to propose whatever you want to include on the target page, and if nobody raises any objections in a couple of days, go ahead and merge the information in. It's also usually a good idea to note in the edit summary where the information has come from. If you need any assistance in doing this, please let me know.
