I wonder why you reverted this [1] edit? Call of Duty is a video game, you use Steady aim by pushing the shift button on a computer keyboard. Nerf is an actual shooting game, there isn't a keyboard, mouse, or any other computer game equipment involved, so in my opinion, it had nothing to do with the subject, and that is why I removed it.

Hi 80_Calo. I think the article is high quality -- but I'm not sure the title best describes the content. This article is about more than drinking 3 cups of milk per day. Should it be a different title?

Hi 80_Calo,

Welcome to the NFD Saviors, and thanks for helping by fixing articles.

This author is a doctor at the
Article Hospital and invites you to help!

I'm wondering why you would have a "Featured Author" ribbon on your user page but no FAs on your articles started list?

We didn't start measuring the age of accounts till 5 years ago. So the very earliest contributors don't get "aged" correctly. It's basically a bug.  :)

I've been here since the start.  :)

I just chose your article on how to Recite the Spanish Alphabet to be a Rising Star. That means it is one of the best new articles on wikiHow. Congratulations, and thanks for the great contribution!

At 19:21, Aug 22, 2011

JackHerrickJack Herrick said:

Yes, it can be possible to do that. It involves some busy work for an admin to help. I'd suggest finding a nice admin who has the time to help you do that.  :) The forums are a good place to ask.

ManiacManiac said:


I'm sorry, but I'm not entirely sure how to modify the articles on your userpage. I think that there's a way that you can disable that automated listing and create your own table with a list, I've seen some users do that before. However, I've never implemented that sort of thing into my userpage so I'm not totally sure how to do it.

Like Jack said, your best bet might be the forums, or if you can go through the list of Administrators and find someone who has their own created "list" of articles on their userpage, you could try asking them how they did it.

ManiacManiac said:


I was going through the patrol log and noticed an edit that you marked as patrolled without reverting it - this edit - and was unsure why it wasn't reverted?

Any links that editors add without adding additional content should be reverted, as they're considered spam most of the time. These editors generally are here just to self-promote their own websites, so they add links to a bunch of articles at once without adding and constructive content to the site...and that doesn't help our mission of creating a high quality how-to manual. =)

Thanks for taking the time to patrol!

Hi 80_Calo, Thanks for your message. The photo booth article is off to a great start. I'd suggest a bit more detail in some steps to bring this article up to a standard that is as good as, better than any other explanation of photo booth that you can find online. For example, with respect to the different backgrounds, it might help to show a few and to give some troubleshooting tips about why the backgrounds don't always work (they break up etc.) and where to stand/what lighting to use etc. Thanks for more great work!

Hello Yarden,

and thanks for your welcome message! Yes, there are two issues that I would like to address and that are related to Wikileaks.

1) I have suffered injustice in my country and have come to the conclusion that I would like to have it publicised by Wikileaks. I did turn to Mr. Assange in a letter sent to his "home"- address in England about a week ago, but am a bit worried that it is not going to be answered since I seem to have turned to the organisation in a way that may not have been accepted for safety reasons. Do you think you could give me an advise as to my question? I would be very grateful!

2)I am interested in working or volunteering for the organisation and would like to know if there is any help needed and what I could do. I am far from good at compution but have been working for a governmental institution where I was recommended for future employments.

I hope you will be able to answer my questions!

Kind Regards!

We have a page of articles that haven't been boosted that non boosters can access and get a taste of it.

That is the forum thread for it.

Also, you need to learn more about wikiHow and its policies, like titles, merges, nfds. Take some time and become familiar with those also.

Hello again,

and thank you for the message! I got your site wrong, I am afraid but it certainly looks interesting anyway!

I am in Sweden, which is far from being a model country when it comes to Justice I am afraid.

I will stay on your site, because it really looks nice. Is it possible to make friends through this site or is it only about exchanging information?

At 17:01, Aug 23, 2011

ChangingthingsChangingthings said:

Hi and thank you for your prompt reply! I am a Lutheran and the maltreatment that i have been subjected to has got nothing to do with religion but rather with freedom of speech at a very well renowned university. It is really crazy! I have trusted the system but it is impossible to assert one´s rights against some institutions, no matter how wrong they are.

Thank you for your friendship- you have got mine in return! Hope to hear from you again!

At 17:05, Aug 23, 2011

ChangingthingsChangingthings said:

Oh, are you Jewish! My best friends in Argentina where I have spent quite a lot of time are Jewish. I really love them. I certainly like the focus on the intellect in your religion- and that you take care of also an uninvited guest!

At 17:22, Aug 23, 2011

ChangingthingsChangingthings said:

I think that you are right about Muslims, that they can certainly be discriminated. There are many successful Jewish in Sweden, but there are those who mean that Sweden has not dealt sufficiently with the collaboration with the Nazis during the war. Myself, I am very positive towards Jewish and Jewish culture.

TtrimmTeresa said:

How did you 'boost' it? I don't see anything. It actually is in pretty good shape. Unfortunately, not a good example of a non-boosted article. They don't all look that good.

At 19:19, Aug 23, 2011

TtrimmTeresa said:

How do you mean, 'practice boost'? What you need to do is find articles on that list and edit them so that you think they are good enough. I happen to know that most, on that list, are not.

Hey there! Looks like Dave removed the copyright flag from Deal With Days Getting Shorter. Even if you provide a citation, you should not copy anything from Wikipedia; you must put it in your own words (and still provide a citation). Let me know if there's anything else I can do to help you out!

About Drink-3-Cups-of-Milk-Per-Day I looked it over, and also noticed Flickety's feedback - I agree with all of her suggestions and can't think of anything new to add :) She is our expert Featured Article editor so following her advice would be wise!

Hi Yarden, you can add your previous anon articles to your own user page as a list. Otherwise, I don't know how to add them to the official article box and if there is away, then you'd need to ask someone who has the know-how technical skills to do that. Perhaps ask Chris Hadley for help there. Thanks!

Hey there, I noticed your edits to How to Make a Ponytail when Braiding. I'm a bit confused if you know how to use sources properly. I noticed that you copied word for word from the original article you used - which is actually plagiarism. When you're using sources, you just simply use their ideas and turn it into your own words and ideas. Please read How to Reference Sources on wikiHow for more information, ... and unfortunately, I had to revert your edits on the article. Thanks.

At 18:46, Sep 01, 2011

MaluniuMaluniu said:

I don't see any copyediting in all four edits, expect for adding an additional sentence in the introduction - which you can re-add. But the main concern was the eHow inserts, which is what I was referring to.

ManiacManiac said:


I saw you patrolled a vandalism edit and I wasn't sure if I might have been missing something?

The information added in this edit does not positively contribute to the article and is an act of vandalism. Edits like these should always be reverted before patrolling through. =)

Hey 80_Calo/Torterra:

If you know you're not very good with patrolling, do you think you could work on something else, like QG or articles? We want people to do what they're good at to maintain the best quality.
