User talk:Western Fortean
Welcome to Wikipedia!
Dear Western Fortean,
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!
