LeCrud Jam[edit]

Hey! I'm a new Wikipedian... if you read my user page, that was my little sister messing around. I went to get a snack and found her typing in my user page. It's kinda funny though. My real name is Rebecca. I love Justin Timberlake, Tennis, Waffles, Golf, Horses, and the Cayman Islands. I have a few Wikipedian friends: Jimmy's bananooz, Abbopa, Trig trigonometry, and Tsubasa Wings. I'd love to get to know more of you better! LeCrud Jam 22:10, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

Hey guys.[edit]

You know the drill: I'm new, I'm scared of breaking secret rules i don't know, etc. If anybody wants to say hey, leave me a message, and if i can figure out how to get to it I'll totally read it.

What's up?[edit]

Hi. I'm new (duh.) If any older, wiser Wikipedians want to give me tips, or if anyone wants to say hey, leave me a message. RollingStone122 03:50, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

Hi, I'm Tolerant666[edit]

I'm (sort of) new to Wikipedia, in that I've been using it for forever but I haven't *actually* started editing until now. I really need to play with Wiki markup in the Sandbox; for now, I'm a little overwhelmed by the complexity of simply making an article, let alone following standards and guidelines.

I'm an admirer and occasional user of Wikipedia, so I thought I should sign up, in case I have something to add or offer. Also, I want to see how it works from the inside. I work as a biologist studying the immune system. Maybe I could help out with a project here when I retire in 5 years or so. David C Parker 21:22, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

KudzuLou[edit]

I've made significant corrections and other changes to the entry on kudzu to correct misconceptions about how to control or eliminate kudzu. Here's where I'm "coming from".

I graduated from LSU (Baton Rouge) in 1980 with a Ph.D. in physics, worked in the research division of the textile company Milliken & Company in Spartanburg, South Carolina, for 19 years, then retired in 2000. I joined "The Spartanburg Men's Garden Club", and became interested in a club project about kudzu.

A club member discovered that it is unnecessary to dig up the roots of a kudzu plant to kill it. It is only necessary to remove the crown, which sits on top of the root, and is the source of kudzu vines. Cut off the crown, and the roots wither away. This is an important discovery because most people believe that killing kudzu is next to impossible. They think that all roots must be dug up; a considerable feat because roots can weigh hundreds of pounds, and are 10 to 20 feet deep.

So a volunteer project called "The Coalition to Control Kudzu Without Chemicals" was established late in 2004 to make the public aware that it is not hopeless to control or eliminate kudzu. Volunteers began working in urban locations in the city of Spartanburg to eliminate isolated pockets of kudzu "without chemicals" by manually cutting off kudzu crowns. Spartanburg was in past times a major railroad hub in the southeast, which explains the presence of over 1,000 acres of kudzu in the city: The railroad planted kudzu on track embankments to control erosion. With that foothold, it began to spread everywhere.

I joined the Coalition early in 2005, work weekly "in the patch" to remove kudzu, am the webmaster for our website KOKudzu.com, and I am also on the board of directors.

The Coalition has successfully eliminated kudzu from several sites, and is on schedule to fully eliminate it at over 40 other locations within the next two years. The Coalition travels to other locations to educate and train people how to deal with kudzu, runs regularly scheduled training classes for the public, participates in "The Southeast Exotic Pest Plant Council" (SE-EPPC), and communicates with specialists at Clemson University, The U.S. Forest Service, and other organizations.

Our volunteers continue to actively investigate new herbicide-free methods, which are fully documented on our website.

Hello all. I am overwhelmed by the quantity and, for the most part the quality, of the information available through Wikipedia. Thanks for giving me something to do when I don't feel like doing what I am supposed to be doing.

I live in California, am a New York native, and a HUGE Met fan. I don't know the extent to which I will be able to contribute to the betterment of Wikipedia, but am looking forward to finding out! Cheers! Fristenskyk 17:31, 7 June 2007 (UTC)fristenskyk

wegobad[edit]

Hi, I've loved wikipedia for a couple years now. I grew up in Chicago, and now live in Tacoma (in the U.S. Pacific Northwest). I hope to contribute useful content about the game of go, which I have been playing and reading about since the mid-1980s. Eventually I may feel qualified to add something about snowboarding or sea kayaking, or content specific to my locale. Other interests are graphic design, math and the other sciences, photography, biodiesel, hiking -- you know, the usual stuff. If you see me committing faux pas, please let me know. Wegobad 19:36, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

Hi![edit]

Just joined today, though I've been lurking for some time. My interests include languages (I speak 12 with varying degrees of proficiency), movies (especially classic movies) and kids tv (I have a niece and nephew). I'm interested in anything Wikipedia has to offer. I'd like to be tutored, I guess is the word, in how the site works. Thanks.TobiasHarrington 02:57, 8 June 2007 (UTC)

MorganchartesT[edit]

I was a graphic artist for 10+ years. I get along with everyone. I like fixing things like mispellings and switched words and the like. Have learned a bit of respect for everyone who contributes to a community like this.

I'll think of more, I have been quite busy this lifetime. morgancharlesT 12:38, 9 June 2007 (UTC)

[edit] My concern about your username

Hello, About Chitra Ramanthan, and welcome to Wikipedia!

I hope not to seem unfriendly or make you feel unwelcome, but I noticed your username, and am concerned that it might not meet Wikipedia's username policy. After you look over that policy, could we discuss that concern here?

Concern: Your username appears to have a type of advertisement in its title

I'd appreciate learning your own views, for instance your reasons for wanting this particular name, and what alternative username you might accept that avoids raising this concern.

You have several options freely available to you:

  • If you can relieve my concern through discussing it here, I can stop worrying about it.
  • If the two of us can't agree here, we can ask for help through Wikipedia's dispute resolution process, such as asking for a "third opinion", or requesting comments from other Wikipedians. Wikipedia administrators usually abide by agreements reached through this process.
  • You can keep your contributions history under a new username. Visit Wikipedia:Changing username and follow the guidelines there.

Let me reassure you that my writing here means I don't think your username is grossly, blatantly, or obviously inappropriate; such names get reported straight to Wikipedia:Usernames for administrator attention or blocked on sight. This is more a case where opinions might differ, and it would be good to reach some consensus — either here or at Wikipedia:Requests for comment/User names. So I look forward to a friendly discussion, and to enjoying your continued participation on Wikipedia. Thank you.

Soulnebula[edit]

Hi, I have just started using wikipedia. I have been readnig through discussions for a few weeks now before I made any changes. Then i started with correcting puncuation and syntax. I still havent doen any realy major edits and have only worked on articles with a B status or lower.

I think I'll like editing comedy articles, music and nature articles. As obviously these are my interests. I have had a go at going through the recently changed pages and editing out some vandalism/typos.

I'm always up for an interesting chat, I like meeting new people and learning about new cultures. I am always keen for new experiences in life as I think life would be pretty mind-numbingly boring with out them! Soulnebula 04:22, 24 June 2007 (UTC)

I'm somewhat of a newbie to Wikipedia, but not to Wikipedia itself

Hi,

My name is Jessica and I'm currently 25 yrs old. Currently still live with my parents and my fraternal twin sister as well. Born with an speech/learning disability. I'm older then her in age (4 min), but not in school because of my disability. Been suffering from depression/anxiety since 9/2001. Currently, I'm an clerical volunteer, which I love, but feel I need the money at the same time.

Think thats it for now.

Hope to get to know all of you in the future.
