Welcome!

Welcome to Wikipedia, Pinikas! My name is Ryan, aka Acetic Acid. I noticed that you were new and haven't received any messages yet. I just wanted to see how you were doing. Wikipedia can be a little intimidating at first, since it uses different formatting than other sites that use HTML and CSS. In the long run, though, you'll find that the WikiSyntax is a lot easier and faster than those other ways. Here are a few links to get you started:

There are a lot of policies and guides to read, but I highly recommend reading over those first. If you have any questions, feel free to leave me a message on my talk page. Please be sure to sign your name 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 nice day. Sincerely, Acetic Acid 09:08, August 26, 2005 (UTC)


Peanut butter and jelly sandwich[edit]

As you may know, Wikipedia is not an indiscriminate collection of information, and trivia sections contradict our manual of style. The article in question could probably benefit from a scholarly and well-sourced analysis of the importance of PB&J in contemporary Western culture, and, when such a section is written, the Family Guy and Seinfeld factoids could be integrated as valuable references. Until that time, I see no prospect of integrating them as recommended by {{trivia}}. Feezo (Talk) 09:40, 22 December 2007 (UTC)

I know you are right, but, there are thousands of articles in Wikipedia with trivia sections. I preffer to see {{trivia}} more of a general guideline rather than a strict regulation. Following the rules in such a strict manner is not always constructive. Nonetheless I just want to copy here a comment by User:Kapuchinski from Talk:Pringles/Archives/2012#Pringles_have_a_lot_of_flavors._Get_used_to_it.

"Wikipedia does not have the paper limitations of a normal encyclopedia. So there is less of a need to omit data, and I don't think there's any need to omit fun facts. Isn't Wikipedia a great source for fun facts? The main page is devoted to them. I am going to restore the flavors section because it has these tantalizing, delicious facts. I would be grateful if someone would rewrite it without omitting any crazy rice-infused, strawberry-flavor fun facts. Otherwise just keep them in their poorly-presented glory, as per the guidelines."

Thank you, pinikas (talk) 10:49, 22 December 2007 (UTC)
Okay. We can leave it in; it's mildly interesting, and doesn't actually hurt the article. :) Feezo (Talk) 14:30, 22 December 2007 (UTC)




Orphaned non-free image File:Ugh Computer Game Screenshot2.png[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Ugh Computer Game Screenshot2.png. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 09:59, 19 May 2012 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Ugh Computer Game Screenshot2.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Ugh Computer Game Screenshot2.png. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 13:42, 19 May 2012 (UTC)

Nomination of Microsoft Diagnostics for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Microsoft Diagnostics is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.
