Hi, StBedes2XL, Welcome to Wikipedia! Wikipedia-logo.png

I hope you like this place — I sure do — and want to stay. Before getting too in-depth, you may want to read about the Five pillars of Wikipedia and simplified ruleset. If you need help on how to title new articles check out the naming conventions, and for help on formatting the pages visit the manual of style. If you need help look at Wikipedia:Help and the FAQ , plus if you can't find your answer there, check the Village Pump (for Wikipedia related questions) or the Reference Desk (for general questions)! There's still more help at the Tutorial and Policy Library. Plus, don't forget to visit the Community Portal. And if you have any more questions after that, feel free to post them on my user talk page or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and someone will be by to help you shortly.

Additional tips[edit]

Here's some extra tips to help you get around in the 'pedia!

  • If you want to play around with your new Wiki skills the Sandbox is for you.
  • You can sign your name followed by a datestamp using four tildes (~). You should do this after all your posts on talk pages.
  • You may want to add yourself to the new user log.
  • If you ever think a page or image should be deleted, please list it at the votes for deletion page. There is also a votes for undeletion page if you want to retrieve something that you think should not have been deleted.
  • If you're still entirely confused, or would like to get a better grasp of your wikipedia skills, and you have an IRC client (or don't mind getting one), check out the Bootcamp. It's not what it sounds like, but it is fun and can help you with your editing skills.
  • If you're bored and want to find something to do, try the Random page button in the sidebar, or check out the Open Task message in the Community Portal.

You can help improve the articles listed below! This list updates frequently, so check back here for more tasks to try. (See Wikipedia:Task Center for brief guides.)

less than XL-lent[edit]

Your article 2xl cherry hinton hall project left much to be desired:

  • Bad capitalisation of title
  • Almost total lack of context - what/where is Cherry Hinton Hall? (I know of course but no one could tell from your article.) Absolutely no explanation of what "2xl" means.

I suggest that you add the content of your article to the Cherry Hinton Hall article. If you include a reference to 2xl, make sure you explain what it is. -- RHaworth 12:17, 20 June 2006 (UTC)

Recently my account (I represent a school gifted and talented group) recieved a message from you describing "flaws" in one of our articles: 2xl cherry hinton hall project *1*. We are certain that we did use proper capitalisation, but seeing as the article is apparently no longer present on Wikipedia (anything to do with you?) *2*, we cannot check and correct if necessary. The message was also, quite frankly rude. A return email including details of what has happened to the article, as well an apology for the message would be appreciated. -- James Lamont-Abrams, St Bede's School Gifted and Talented Group. (Via e-mail)

I have been accused of biting the newbies. But the most I will admit is that perhaps I growl at them rather more than some other editors! Now read my comment above carefully, is there anything that Michael Martin would object to in another place? I claim that there is not.

  • *1* - is the title "2xl cherry hinton hall project" correctly capitalised?
  • *2* no longer present - I provided a link thus: your article - did you not follow it? anything to do with you? - look at the history - you don't need to ask.

But what objection do you have to my suggestion that you should expand the Cherry Hinton Hall article rather than creating a new article with a strange title? -- RHaworth 12:15, 8 July 2006 (UTC)
