Here are some tips to help you get started:
- To sign your posts (on talk pages, for example) use the '~' symbol. To insert just your name, type ~~~ (3 tildes), or, to insert your name and timestamp, use ~~~~ (4 tildes).
- Try the Tutorial, and feel free to experiment in the test area.
- If you need help, post a question at the Help Desk
- Follow the Wikipedia:Simplified Ruleset
- Eventually, you might want to read the Manual of Style and Policies and Guidelines.
- Remember Wikipedia:Neutral point of view
- Explore, be bold in editing pages, and, most importantly, have fun!
Don't worry too much about the protocols. The best thing Wikipedia is that it is extremely easy to undo any change. That's why it survives. You'll find that any "mistakes" you make are quickly corrected by someone else. It's all amazingly powerful and flexible... and fun really. I'm a bit of an addict. Tinkering with existing pages is a simple way of starting, but you'll soon get the hang of it. I'm happy to steer you in the right direction if you have questions (or you can ask the eclectic mix at the mess). ARDS has been getting a bit of a massage lately, thanks mainly to User:Aside. The 'don't publish original researh' policy is mainly to stop crack pots... "my research conclusively show asthma is caused entirely due to the use of underarm deoderant by mothers..." that sort of thing, I think. If you've got some research that has been published then that would be received well. I've been dropping a few articles into category:pulmonology as I find them. (to put an article in a category you just type [[category:pulmonology]] at the bottom (or [[category:medicine]] etc to put articles in another category. cheers Erich 00:34, 12 Jul 2004 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited British United Airways, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Sir Ronald Edwards (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
