How do I find an editor's contributions?[edit]

This should be an FAQ. (By the way, I would like to know the answer, since I forgot how to do it.) Kdammers 06:26, 30 September 2006 (UTC)

In the search box, type "user:" and then the person's username. Once at their user page, click the "Contributions" link on the left.

Chasey Lain[edit]

My edits were taken off, and the comment was that she probably did not die. I listed the source, and the website that it came from. It was my first edit, and then it was gone.

If you want to dispute another editor's actions, you should take this up on that user's talk page. If you don't know who reverted your edit, post a question on the article's talk page.

External Link[edit]

How do I add an external link to a town page.

Margaret —Preceding unsigned comment added by Alltheinfo (talkcontribs) 21:01, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

See Wikipedia:External links. Also read the part about which links are appropriate, for example "You should avoid linking to a website that you own, maintain or represent". PrimeHunter (talk) 22:40, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

How can I add pictures to pages?[edit]

This section needs a major update. --—— Gadget850 (Ed) talk - 14:54, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

"How do I add a link?" Section[edit]

As with much of Wikipedia help, I found this section quite unreadable for people who don't use the program frequently. When help says "the "page name" can come from a URL," it is simply utterly unclear to someone who doesn't know the syntax already. There is no reference made to the text that is being edited, so, there is no context. One must say explicitly what code is is to be inserted (or even that code is inserted) and what it will do. It would be REALLY nice if when one goes for help, there is a simple list of the possible commands and what they do. I have never been able to search for help and find what I wished without clicking about five more links. Sorry, rant for the day. I love Wikipedia otherwise! If my replacement is unclear, please change. I had no clue from what was written how you use the search command to make a link, and the link from there was not helpful.

However when I looked at your list the knights of the order he is not included. if you can you look into this and edit the list to include him I would be grateful. On behalf of myself and in his memory I thank you .

But I wanted ya'll to know that there is an error in article: South_Carolina's_4th_congressional_district There are actually two congressional districts in Spartanburg County. The 5th and 4th. The article states that all of Spartanburg county is district 4. — Preceding unsigned comment added by SaveTrees2Breath (talkcontribs) 14:49, 21 March 2017 (UTC)
