Welcome to Wikipedia!

Welcome to Wikipedia, Oakwood! I'm Celestianpower. I noticed that you were new and/or have yet to receive any messages so I just thought I'd pop in to say "hello". Hello. Wikipedia can be a little intimidating at first, since it's so big but we won't bite so Be Bold and get what you know down in microchips! If you do make a mistake, that's fine, we'll assume good faith and just correct you: it'll take a few seconds maximum! Here, however, are a few links to get you started:

There are lots of policies and guidelines to get to grips with but they all make your life easier and your stay more fun in the long run. If you have any questions, feel free to leave me a message on my talk page or add {{helpme}} to your userpage - someone will come very, very quickly to your aid. Please be sure to sign your posts on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~) to produce your name and the current date, along with a link to your user page. This way, others know when you left a message and how to find you. It's easier than having to type out your name, right? ;)

I hope you enjoy contributing to Wikipedia. We can use all the help we can get! Have a great time, all the best, sayonara and good luck! --Celestianpower hab 09:56, 15 August 2005 (UTC)

WP:PHYS[edit]

Hello Fabio, I notice that you had some interest in physics. Might I interest you in joining WikiProject Physics? I am Gaëtan BTW.Headbomb {ταλκκοντριβς – WP Physics} 07:09, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

Well I won't ask too much of you. The first thing you could do is sign up on the member list. People usually list their areas of expertise/interests so when people are looking for help on a topic, they can reach people who knows something about it. The second thing is watching the WikiProject Physics talk page. There's no need to reply to everything, but there will probably be some topics which will interest you. And the last thing is watching the Article alerts (you'll need to click "show bot edits" in you preferences as well, since a bot updates that page), which gives a list of current things going on with physics articles (such as peer reviews, proposed deletions, etc..). Again there is no need to reply and give feedback to everything on that list, but there will probably be some discussions you'll want to join. Simply keeping an eye on things is a great help. If you want to do more, then browse WikiProject Physics' homepage and see if something interests you. Thanks a bunch.Headbomb {ταλκκοντριβς – WP Physics} 15:45, 23 March 2009 (UTC)
You can also place {{Physics Member Navbox}} on your user page and you'll get a list of useful links.Headbomb {ταλκκοντριβς – WP Physics} 15:46, 23 March 2009 (UTC)
Hi Gaëtan I am sorry of this really late reply. As a Wikipedia contributor I am a very sporadic one, as you can see. I put my name in the WP:PHYS project page. I'll try my best, consider that in the next couple of months I'll work at the thesis for my PhD, so I'll be (supposed to be) very busy.. :-) . BTW, your name sounds really familiar to me, since it is very popular in my hometown, Napoli. Cheers Oakwood (talk) 01:29, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

February 2010[edit]

Information.svg Please do not replace Wikipedia pages with blank content, as you did to the page Newport Corporation. Blank pages are malicious to Wikipedia as they often confuse readers. If it is a duplicate article, please redirect it to an appropriate existing page. If the page has been vandalized, please revert it to the last legitimate revision. If you feel that the content of a page is inappropriate, please replace it with appropriate content. If you believe there is no hope for the page, please use the deletion process for how to proceed. 5 albert square (talk) 01:49, 5 February 2010 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for January 8[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Holevo's theorem, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Mixed state (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.

Speedy deletion nomination of The People's Voice (internet TV station)[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on The People's Voice (internet TV station) 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 web content, 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 read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. Nat Gertler (talk) 04:41, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

Move, instead of copy/paste[edit]

Hi Fabio - I've requested an admin to merge edit histories from your sandbox to The People's Voice. This is nothing to worry about. For more info, please read and enjoy WP:MOVE, and for what all this is about, read WP:HISTMERGE. Now, the standard template message:

Information icon Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you tried to give User:Oakwood/sandbox a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into The People's Voice (internet TV station). This is known as a "cut-and-paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page. This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut-and-paste-move repair holding pen. Thank you. --Lexein (talk) 19:00, 8 December 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for December 10[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Bruno de Finetti, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page National Institute of Statistics (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.
