RicGloria1 and Supdiop, this page is a place to discuss the operation of the Teahouse itself. I doubt that many new editors view or read comments posted here. Were your comments supposed to be directed at a particular editor or group of editors? Cordless Larry (talk) 19:27, 20 October 2015 (UTC)
I wasn't expecting newbies to read those comments. I added that advice for time pass. 😀 Supdiop (T🔹C) 22:53, 20 October 2015 (UTC)
Hi! I'm trying to host an editathon in NOLA and am new in the area. In New York it was easy to find administrators and wikimedians to join and help us. Any advice on finding people to help? It will be November 17--Heathart (talk) 18:11, 28 October 2015 (UTC)
Hi Heathart. Two places you can check are the New Orleans meetup page and the Wikipedians in New Orleans category. Hope that helps! Cheers, Jtmorgan (talk) 20:22, 28 October 2015 (UTC)
Thanks!--Heathart (talk) 22:26, 28 October 2015 (UTC)

Hello, ChangerOfGames, and welcome to the Teahouse. Note that if you have any questions that you want to ask the Teahouse hosts about how to edit Wikipedia, the place to do so is Wikipedia:Teahouse/Questions‎. Cordless Larry (talk) 18:49, 18 November 2015 (UTC)


Not sure why someone asked me... I guess they are confused as to what was placed on there page today...Did you guys want to spam the Tip of the day... on your {{Welcome-t}}?? -- Moxy (talk)

Host image[edit]

It is easy for the image of a host at the top of the page to deceive a visitor into thinking that that is the one on duty. Could it be clarified that that is not the case? I do not know how to attempt it. SovalValtos (talk) 21:29, 20 November 2015 (UTC)

As demonstrated here. I thought we were back to the invite signing issue here, until I saw that the host mentioned wasn't the one signed on the template placed on the user's talk page. Cordless Larry (talk) 21:41, 20 November 2015 (UTC)

Asking question[edit]

Hello, I can't submit my questions to the teahouse because despite signing the ask question link is still dead.The questions I want to ask are is it true there are 25million pages on wiki including all languages?and is an autobiography a reliable source?Thanks84.92.84.254 (talk) 14:08, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

I'm not sure why you are unable to post on the question page,, but I will copy your question there for you. Cordless Larry (talk) 17:26, 29 November 2015 (UTC)
