Question on the Newcomers help page[edit]

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[edit]

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

  1. <math>L = \frac{(N^2 - N)}{2}</math> produces this:
  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 <math> and </math> 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[edit]

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.

External links[edit]

To get numbered external links, simply put one set of square brackets around them, for example:

[http://www.google.com] will produce text that looks like: [1]
[http://www.google.com Google homepage] will produce text that looks like: Google homepage. The key thing there is the space after the url, this space ensures that the text following the space is shown on the page, but it will still link to the url.

Hope this helps. - Akamad 21:56, 1 April 2006 (UTC)

New article[edit]

Have a look at Help:Starting a new page on how to create a new page. It's a pretty simple process. You can request feedback on your article using the Wikipedia:Requests for feedback page. All the best. - Akamad 10:08, 22 July 2006 (UTC)
