Hello this is my first attempt at writing a new article, and as such I've run into two snags- (a) I'm having trouble getting a reference number icon (the raised square bracketed number) to show in the body of text (I don't have access to a computer so I'm doing this on my tablet- but I don't think that that is necessarily the issue- more my lack of comprehension of code!;and (b) as a new history article covering a topic that hasn't been documented yet elsewhere that I can find on the net, I cannot provide good references to validate my work.

Hi Sam, I left an example of how to reference at User:Samsbanned/Sandbox 2, it shows how to just add a reference, and how to include a link within a reference. I suggest you read Referencing for Beginners, it has a video that will help too. There are citation templates that make the references look cleaner, and they are encouraged, but not mandatory. It is much easier to do on a computer than a tablet, however not impossible on a tablet. As for your second question, you should read the general notability guidelines for information on notability, basically the subject has to have been written about by a reliable source. --kelapstick(bainuu) 02:09, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

My article is ready to be submitted to see if it conforms to the guidelines for "publishing", but I don't know how to do this, nor how to change the topic to "First Reef" instead of Reefriders (it's ambiguous).

Wikibullying[edit]

Here's a good example.

Some bully is trying to scare me into keeping my 'view points' (hey, my view scores points?) to myself. sarcastically/ "Let's all propagate Eurocentricism so that the Myth of White Supremacy can extinguish native dignity". Yeah, like we're still living in the Colonial era of the British Empire! That was so last century, nay, last millennium.Samsbanned (talk) 04:52, 8 December 2015 (UTC) it reads as follows:

........ WP:ARBIPA Notification ........

Commons-emblem-notice.svg Please carefully read this information:

The Arbitration Committee has authorised discretionary sanctions to be used for pages regarding India, Pakistan, and Afghanistan, a topic which you have edited. The Committee's decision is here.

Discretionary sanctions is a system of conduct regulation designed to minimize disruption to controversial topics. This means uninvolved administrators can impose sanctions for edits relating to the topic that do not adhere to the purpose of Wikipedia, our standards of behavior, or relevant policies. Administrators may impose sanctions such as editing restrictions, bans, or blocks. This message is to notify you sanctions are authorised for the topic you are editing. Before continuing to edit this topic, please familiarise yourself with the discretionary sanctions system. Don't hesitate to contact me or another editor if you have any questions.

This message is informational only and does not imply misconduct regarding your contributions to date.

Please make sure that you read and follow all Wikipedia policies and guidelines. I think your statement on Talk:Indo-Aryan migration theory is quite a deliberate distortion of Wikipedia policies. If you continue pushing such view points, you may invite sanctions under WP:ARBIPA. Kautilya3 (talk) 10:31, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

I make no apology for my contrary beliefs. Tell someone who cares about preserving Wonkipedia double standards! Eg. there is no corresponding page: Aryan Invasion Myth, because it is stereotyped as a conspiracy theory, in direct contrast, challenging the Western 'scholarly' view. This whole topic is dedicated to perpetrating the false Aryan Race model. There is no Aryan "race". It is a state of consciousness. Samsbanned (talk) 22:31, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

Nasty Wikipedians[edit]

Really there are some horrible, disrespectful, demoniac lowlifes out there. One of Wikipedia's guidelines is 'be nice to newbies'. Another is 'don't edit just to make a point'. And of course it shouldn't even have to be said, not to swear, degrade, insult or attack someone's personality for expressing a differing point of view.

I am recovering from a recent episode where a "fellow" (?) Wikipedian of the aforementioned ilk mocked my very first efforts at creating a wiki page, "First Reef". Unfamiliar with the correct style of presentation, it took me several efforts to get it right, learning as I went, how to correctly format the page, how to use html markups, what could and couldn't be included, making links and references, etcetera, etc.

As trivial as the content may be, I was quite proud when finally it was accepted. As a sexagenarian who has spent many years away from a computer having suffered horrific PTSD from exposure to Windows 98, my return via Andriod has allowed me to venture once again into the murky waters of cyberspace. Alas, some things haven't changed - except now the attacks come from malicious people, not viruses aimed at Bill's toy.

Once again I have to remind myself that not all God's creatures are aware of their spiritual essence, and that the Material World is a place where atheists, agnostics, and one-eyed religious fanatics delight in hurting others.

As Śrīla Prabhupāda said, "This is no place for a gentleman".
