My name is Richard. I'll keep you updated if things change.

First Edit[edit]

Thanks for letting me know about your first edit. You're a real Wikipedian now! The only thing you forgot to do is sign the message you left on my Talk page! Also, you didn't have to give me the URL for the wikipedia page you edited. All you needed to do is put the name of the page in double square brackets. --Greentina (talk) 04:11, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

Back to the Start Video[edit]

What a great little video, "Back to the Start." I've reposted it, thanks. SockeyeSam (talk) 05:33, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

Useful source for your WP article[edit]

I just came across a very useful source. Have a look at this MA thesis (esp. the first chapter). I am writing this message to your group so you can talk about it. The MA thesis is available online, through the UBC Library's databases. You will be able to download the PDF. Go to a database called Proquest Dissertations and Theses: http://resources.library.ubc.ca/32 and search for David Vogt, 'Every Drop of Water will be Desired': the Lake Minnewanka and Spray Lakes Controversies in Rocky Mountains National Park," MA thesis, University of Northern British Columbia, 2011. It has a good bibliography too. It takes on some of the arguments in The River Returns and so is useful. --Greentina (talk) 23:07, 9 March 2012 (UTC)

Invitation to Vancouver meetup[edit]

Hello,

You are invited to an edit-a-thon at the Prophouse Café on Sunday March 25, as part of Women's History Month events all over the world. If you wish to attend, please see Wikipedia:Meetup/Vancouver WikiWomen's Edit-a-Thon and add your signature to the list.

Thank you! InverseHypercube (talk) 10:04, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

Sandbox[edit]

Hi Richard, I was able to view your Sandbox and saw two draft paragraphs there. Maybe one of the Online Ambassadors might be able to help Drummond sort that problem out? Perhaps he is clicking on the "My Sandbox" tab up top, and not on the "Sandbox" hyperlink that is part of your bio on your userpage? SockeyeSam (talk) 00:27, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

Hey folks. I just changed the link from the "my sandbox" template to a regular wikilink. That template is pesky; it will always link to the sandbox of the person clicking it, rather than the user whose page it is on. Maybe spread the word to stop using it.
