Or, you can just type {{helpme}} on this page, and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Here are a few other good links for newcomers:

Your recent edits[edit]

Information icon Hello and welcome to Wikipedia. When you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion (but never when editing articles), please be sure to sign your posts. There are two ways to do this. Either:

  1. Add four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment; or
  2. With the cursor positioned at the end of your comment, click on the signature button (Insert-signature.png or Button sig.png) located above the edit window.

This will automatically insert a signature with your username or IP address and the time you posted the comment. This information is necessary to allow other editors to easily see who wrote what and when.

Thank you. --SineBot (talk) 10:12, 17 September 2013 (UTC)

Contacting editors for purposes of research[edit]

Hello, User:Wkmaster. :) I'm Maggie Dennis. I'm the Senior Community Advocate for the Wikimedia Foundation. I wanted to touch base with you briefly about your research project. I see on Meta (m:Research:Finding a Collaborator) that your project does not yet show support from the Wikimedia Foundation, and I need to ask you if you have submitted your proposal as required for subject recruitment (see m:Research:Subject recruitment). If you have not, you need to get approval from the Research Committee prior to recruiting people on our sites to take part. --Maggie Dennis (WMF) (talk) 10:59, 17 September 2013 (UTC)

I just wanted to update you - pending verification of that approval for subject recruitment, I have removed the invitations you placed on English Wikipedia. Once this approval is verified, I am happy to help restore these. Either way, I'm sorry for the confusion here and hope to help straighten it out. --Maggie Dennis (WMF) (talk) 11:15, 17 September 2013 (UTC)

I just wanted to leave a quick note about this. Wkmaster has documented this project on meta and received approval from RCom to continue with the described recruitment strategy. See m:Research:Finding a Collaborator. This note comes quite late as approval was confirmed on Oct. 9th. --EpochFail (talkcontribs) 16:53, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

Notice on discussion at WP:ANI[edit]

Information icon There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. The thread is User study - returning again. Thank you. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 17:42, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

Sorry for any misunderstanding. The only remaining issue appears to be a minor clerical cleanup of needing to update the "timeline" section on the page at meta:Research:Finding a Collaborator. You had updated the dates in the Infobox in the upper right of that page; but not in the section at the bottom of the page. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 17:59, 9 January 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for your message. I have just updated the dates in the section at the bottom of the page as you suggested. Wkmaster (talk) 22:12, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

Finding collaborators (humour/curiosity)[edit]

Out of curiosity, I'm wondering about the extent to which you're aware that "collaborator" has historically been perceived as a highly negative term? See attached Commons category (note some images are extremely graphic, though only in sub-categories). --Demiurge1000 (talk) 20:17, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for pointing it out! I learned that the vocabulary has historically been perceived as a highly negative term from the attached Commons category. Wkmaster (talk) 00:05, 13 February 2014 (UTC)


You have a new message here. --Gryllida (talk) 14:33, 25 January 2014 (UTC)

Jesimon, if that's actually you, please note that evading your block will prevent you from returning. You need to login to your account and make an appropriate unblock request on your usertalkpage. It will then be evaluated on its merits. Editing talkpages as you are now will prevent you from being unblocked DP 10:29, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
