Hi! I came across your article Make an Independent Film. Were you not finished with the article? If you weren't finished with it, you can put a {{inuse}} tag on it. I added one for you, just remove it when your done. :)

Let me know if you need any help!

Can you give me the title of the article and when it was written?

If you weren't logged in, it will probably show up as an anonymous IP rather than your name.

If you hit the back button before you hit publish, the article may not have saved. In that case you would have to do it again.

I try to write articles in a text editor and keep them until I know it published.

The article is there. Click here: Make-an-Independent-Film. There is no content in the article, but the inuse tag is there, so you have about 2 weeks to work on it before anyone will bother you. Just go back and rebuild the article.

If I can help, let me know.

Could have been a glitch in the system at that point. It's rare, but it happens when there's a sudden spike in server activity. You published it right when the system had an excessive demand spike. It caught the title and your comment in the introduction section and dropped the rest.

I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

Please don't remove merge tags from articles you've started. When someone places a tag like that on an article page, community members get an opportunity to state their opinions about the possible merge on the article's discussion page before a final decision is made. When you see a merge tag you disagree with, please do this! Say "Oppose merge" and explain why you think the articles should remain separate. Just removing the tag means that the dialogue is shut down, and that kind of removal can be considered vandalism.

Thanks, and I hope you keep contributing to wikiHow!

Hey there Adam!

Yes, the article seems to have been deleted on the 6th for having no content. I retitled Independent Film Making as Make an Independent Film, as this title is clearer and will be more commonly searched!

Great job on the article! Keep up the good work! :)

Hey Adam!

No problem! Yes, only administrators can change the title of a page, so thats why you had trouble figuring it out.

If you come across an article that needs a title change, you can add this tag: { {title|Name of New Title} } (without the spaces) and an Admin will review and change it if necessary!

If you have any other questions, feel free to let me know! :)

Hi there Adam,

I just came across How to Direct a Movie for Under $10,000 and thought it was awesome! I love how much detail you went into. I can't believe the actors in Paranormal Activity were only paid $500! Anyway, one of the reasons I stopped by is because I made a few edits to the page and wanted to know if you'd look them over and make sure they're alright, you can check them out here. I hope you find them helpful but if not, or if you have questions, please just let me know :)

I just chose your article on how to Direct a Movie for Under $10,000 to be a Rising Star. That means it is one of the best new articles on wikiHow. Congratulations, and thanks for the great contribution!

Hey there Adam R Riggs!

It appears that you may have forgotten to assign a license to the pictures you recently uploaded. I just wanted to verify whether you made these pictures yourself or got them from somewhere else: and

If this is a screenshot of computer software, let me know so I can tag the image as Fair Use. If you got it from a search engine, like Google or Bing, or a website you found, please let me know which site - images that are copyrighted can't be used on wikiHow and have to be removed, but you can search for images we already have permission to use by entering search terms in the Search area instead of uploading using the "Browse" button. For more information, see Import Freely Licensed Images Into wikiHow. If you're searching for images on the web, check to make sure they have a "Creative Commons" or "Public Domain" license associated with them (might be found near the picture, or in the site's Terms of Use), rather than "All Rights Reserved". If using Google Images, you can click on "Search Tools", then "Usage Rights", then "Labeled for Reuse".

Thanks again! If there's anything I can help you with now or in the future, don't hesitate to contact me or someone else in the wikiHow forums. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Hi Loser! I'm giving you this award, which is pretty much the highest honor someone can get on a wiki--and despite the fact that anyone can give one, it doesn't get passed out that often, so I hope you appreciate the sentiment. Most people display their barnstars on their user page, but that's up to you. Either way....

High Quality wikiHow Contributor
Hey, you are totally awesome, which is why I am totally giving you this award. You chould be very honored, because it's not everyday that a fucking cunt like you gets one of these. So enjoy it, and bee proud, because you never know when some admin might take it away because you turned out to be a fucking asshole.
