Welcome![edit]

Some fruit for the only non-cookie user I've ever met! ;-)
Welcome to Wikipedia, Roddie Digital! I have been editing Wikipedia for quite some time. I just wanted to say hi and welcome you to Wikipedia! If you have any questions, feel free to leave me a message on my talk page or by typing {{helpme}} at the bottom of this page. I love to help new users, so don't be afraid to leave a message! I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are some pages that you might find helpful:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Oh yeah, I almost forgot, when you post on talk pages you should sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); that should automatically produce your username and the date after your post. If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Questions, ask me on my talk page, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and ask your question there. Again, welcome!

Help Request[edit]

{{helpme}} I'm needing assistance in changing Guardian Unlimited over to guardian.co.uk; it won't let me move the article because that page already exists as a redirect for The Guardian. --roddie digital (talk) 22:05, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

Hi there! I have changed the re-direct at guardian.co.uk so that it now points to Guardian Unlimited and have added a little line at the top to prevent confusion. Although I can't find the right policy now, I believe it is more accepted to name an article about a website using the site's name and not it's URL (Example: Google instead of Google.com or Wikipedia instead of en.wikipedia.org). Hope this helps! If you have any other questions or would like more detail about what I did, feel free to contact me here or on my talk page. Cheers! --omtay38 23:23, 13 February 2008 (UTC)
Aha! Now I understand! Then I would suggest going through Wikipedia:Requested moves. You could use the template {{db-move}} (to have that page deleted under criterion for speedy deletion G6), but this is usually only used to revert vandalism or to remove bad re-directs. As always, if you need any help with this, let me know. --omtay38 23:32, 13 February 2008 (UTC)
The proposal looks good! I've also given you a welcome template since it appears you've never been formally welcomed! --omtay38 00:39, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Guardian co uk frontpage 2008 02 14.png)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Guardian co uk frontpage 2008 02 14.png. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media 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 media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' 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 "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BetacommandBot (talk) 19:41, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

User subpage[edit]

There is a thread over at the Administrators' noticeboard about the version of the Guardian Unlimited article in your userspace. It is currently categorized into article categories, which is a no-no. See Wikipedia's editing guideline on categorization in namespace for details. Please remove the categories from your working copy of the article. Horologium (talk) 12:16, 24 February 2008 (UTC)

Hi there. Sorry, I've been away from Wikipedia for a short while so I'm a bit late responding to your message. I see someone took out the categories and I've put the page in for speedy deletion now that it's no longer needed. Regards --roddie digital (talk) 23:37, 2 March 2008 (UTC)
