Welcome to Wikipedia![edit]

Dear ToaTPM,
Hello, and let me be first to welcome you to this great glorious mess we call Wikipedia.
I have created your account, and I hope you will take a few minutes to peruse a bit of reading material before you get to editing with your shiny new tools.

  • First off, you can learn the basics of editing Wikipedia at How to Edit a Page. There is a chart showing basic commands in Wikimarkup, the formatting language which Wikipedia uses, at the Cheatsheet, and you can find answers to frequently asked questions at the FAQ
  • It would also behoove you to learn about "Wikiquette"- that is which behaviors are appropriate here and which are not. You can find this information at Etiquette.
  • If you are editing Wikipedia with the screen reader JAWS, there is a page dedicated to keyboard shortcuts and other tips called Using JAWS. If you use a different screen reader or have a different disability and need assistance of any kind, make sure to drop us a line at Wikipedia Accessibility or WikiProject Accessibility to let us know how we can help you out.
  • Due to persistent misuse of the system, several features of Wikipedia have been disabled for very new users- including uploading a picture, and editing a semi-protected page. Some features, including the addition of an external link, will require the entering a CATCHPA. After four days have passed and you have made ten edits, these features will be enabled and/or you will no longer be required to enter CATCHPAs.

If you have any questions about anything at all, don't hesitate to leave me a message on my talk page. I usually respond very quickly, and if I don't know the answer... well, I'll find someone who does! You can leave a message on a talk page by clicking the "new section" tab at the top of the page. Don't forget to sign your posts with ~~~~ which substitutes your username and the time you left the message.
Have a wonderful time, and once again, WELCOME!

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page. For the Election committee, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 16:53, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
