I have contributed an article on "Size of groups, organizations, and communities."

## Question on the Newcomers help page

To upload a file, use the upload file link. However, it's probably easiest to simply copy and paste the text of the file onto your userpage. Alternatively, you can create a subpage and copy and paste the text to that page and create a link to it from your main userpage. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me on my talk page. - Akamad 03:02, 28 February 2006 (UTC)

You're welcome. I had a look at the formatting of the page. To create the headings, delete the period at the end of the ==heading== text. I've changed one of them to show you what I mean. - Akamad 21:12, 28 February 2006 (UTC)

## Parse error

Hi there. I had a look at your parse error. There are two ways to write it:

1. $L = \frac{(N^2 - N)}{2}$ produces this: ${\displaystyle L={\frac {(N^{2}-N)}{2}}}$
2. ''L'' = (''N''<sup>2</sup> - ''N'')/2 produces this: L = (N2 - N)/2

The first method is using latex code, the other is simply html. When putting the $and$ tags on, it means everything inside those tags has to be latex code. That's why you were having a parse error, because inside the tags you had html instead of latex. Wikipedia:Manual of Style (mathematics) gives more info on writing maths equations, and Help:Formula gives help on writing latex code in particular. I hope that helps. - Akamad 19:56, 9 March 2006 (UTC)

## Text box

Hi there. The reason there is a text box around the text is because there is a space before the first word:

For example:

Putting a space before the first word produces text like this:

Testing some stuff


Simply get rid of that leading space and the problem is solved.
