Welcome to Wikipedia! I'm your campus ambassador Gabe and I enjoyed talking with you yesterday about Wikipedia. I've put a few notes and helpful links, particularly about how to find images here: Education Program talk:Boston College/History of the American West (2013 Q1). Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about editing Wikipedia. I hope you enjoy this assignment and I look forward to seeing your contributions.

Help us improve the Wikipedia Education Program
Hi Vanacoca! As a student editor on Wikipedia, you have a lot of valuable experience about what it's like to edit as a part of a classroom assignment. In order to help other students like you enjoy editing while contributing positively to Wikipedia, it's extremely helpful to hear from real student editors about their challenges, successes, and support needs. Please take a few minutes to answer these questions by clicking below. (Note that the responses are posted to a public wiki page.) Thanks!

Your article Prairie madness
Hello, Vanacoca, and welcome to Wikipedia! I wanted to let you know that I just reviewed the "Did you know...?" listing for your article "Prairie madness" and I thought the article was excellent. You have a real skill for encyclopedic writing and I hope you will continue to edit Wikipedia as you have time. Wikipedia always needs people to write and improve articles, even if it is just to make minor improvements in articles you happen to read (that's called being a Wikignome). Warning: Wikipedia editing can be habit forming!
About your "Did you know" nomination, you can find it here: Template:Did you know nominations/Prairie madness. At some point a volunteer will move it from the "nominations" list to the Queue, from which it will be moved to the "Did you know...?" listings on the Wikipedia mainpage. There is a table at the Queue telling you when it will be on the mainpage - usually for a period of 8 hours - so that you will know when to look for it.
DYK for Prairie madness
|On 18 April 2013, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Prairie madness, which you created or substantially expanded. The fact was ... that settlers of the American frontier in the 19th century sometimes fell victim to prairie madness, in which social isolation and other hardships of life on the prairie caused them to develop mental illness? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Prairie madness. You are welcome to check how many hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, quick check) and it will be added to DYKSTATS if it got over 5,000. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the Did you know? talk page.|
