Hello Ben,

You recently edited the article Speed up a Windows XP Computer. Please visit that discussion page to my message about that change. Thanks!

Sondra C said:

Ben, Create Your Own Cash Cow, the related I added were from the new system, and not ones that I myself chose...I could not imagine I using those wrong ones said:

How the heck can you have made 20,000 contributions to this? I couldn't even read 20,000 articles in 10 lifetimes!

Be Happy said:

Recently "Care for a Green Tree Frog" was nominated for deletion. The info seems okay. I know alot about frogs. Sondra C keeps saying that it will be merged or deleted because "Care for a Frog" has similar info. I disagree. There are many varieties of frog and the info is not similar. I contribute to the page and don't think it should be removed or merged. Please get back to me. Thanks

FYI - in the FTP Picasa Photos in One Click wiki, the program FTP Syncronizer - Home edition doesn't seem to exist, at least at the creators page. COuld probably find it elsewhere though.

Jeanine said:

Thank you for simplifying the article and improving it. I have been thinking about the title also. I am not quite sure what to change the title to. It does bring in religion at the end, but that last step seems so essential. Do you have title ideas?

Jeanine said:

Ok I fixed the title, thank you for mentioning it. Here is a copy of my reason for doing it.

This title is shorter and seems to fit the article better. The word guilt implies that the person is doing something wrong. In this case I feel that self doubt is more what homeschooling mothers suffer from. So what they need is more confidence. Thus "How to Homeschool with more confidence and less stress" fits this how-to better.

Sondra C said:

Congratulations for the Award you received.

You certainly earned it. Without you, wiki would never be the same. Your edits are done without fanfare, but make so much of a difference in creating a better wikihow.

Rob S said:

The article was one of about 4 or 5 that was split from one huge article that needed formatting. It seems that the first character of each line there was cut off, for an unknown reason.

Most of the ingredient amounts are self-explanatory [i.e. "/3 cup sugar" is "1/3"], but others, I'm not entirely sure.

I may just have to evoke my nonexistent culinary judgment. :P

Brandywine said:

Hi I know you are an administrator and I was wondering if you could answer a question I have. I was looking at the discussion page of "How to decorate your locker" and saw that there are many kids and pre teens giving out their emails which I am sure you know can be very dangerous. Is it WikiHows policy to remove these addresses? If so can anyone do it under the edit this page link, or should only an administrator do this? Thank you for your time. Alison King.

Bananapancakes101 said:

An easy way to know that you're producing your high notes correctly is to place a finger on your larynx (voice box or "Adam's apple"), then sing up a scale to see if your larynx moves up higher on your neck. If so, this is the INCORRECT method. This is the most common mistake made by ameatuer singers. To overcome this will take time, patience and a lot of staring in your mirror. My voice coach also made me hold my tongue with my fingers and sing to feel when my tounge was getting in the way of the sound. Don't take these methods overboard to "force" the correct sound to come out. Simply use this as a test like you would use a level to see if something is straight.

HI!! I READ THE ARTICLE ON THIS SITE ABOUT SINGING HIGH NOTES. I WAS TRYING Out the thing above and my larynx does move up. what do i do 2 overcome this??

Hi Ben. I am asking if my page is now acceptable: How to appreciate George W. Bush. If not, please advise me on how to fix it. Thank you.


Craig Burrows MBE said:

Thank you Ben. However I never saw any discussion when I was monitoring, which I did frequently and the page that has replaced it lacks a lot of the essential points that had been made and also garnered a lot of positive comments. It also always came top when searching for stress which is not the case with the page that has replaced it.

I am loath to start a new page as I do not want to be argumentative but I suggest the wikihow Admins look into this.

Thank you for our kind response.

"It's like a cartwheel but you don't put your hands down" said:

hi, First off i am the original auther of the page. If you dont believe that, oh well. Yes Japanese families do pass the bones of deseaced family members to each other with chopsticks.

Below is list of event that would happen at a japanese funeral. To se the original text go to

On the funeral day the body is cremated. The guests take a first meal during that time in the crematorium. Afterwards, the relatives pick the bones out of the ash and pass them from person to person by chopsticks.

The actual funeral ceremony is then held by Buddhist monks according to Buddhist rituals. Many guests are present at this ceremony. Each of them will pay about 20,000 Yen to the relatives and receive a small gift in return. At last, another meal is held.

The urn is put on an altar at the family's house and kept there for 35 days. Incense sticks (osenko) are burned there around the clock (special 12 hour sticks for the night exist). Many visitors will come to the house, burn a stick, and talk to the family. After 35 days, the urn is finally buried on a Buddhist cemetery.

The Japanese visit their ancestors' graves on many occasions during the year: especially during the obon week, the anniversaries, and the equinoctial weeks.

There are certain things (e.g. concerning chopsticks) one should not do in everyday life because they are linked to funeral rites and death, and are, therefore, suspected to cause bad luck.

KnowItSome said:

Thanks for your question on Take a Shower. Steps 4, 7 and 9 do not begin per wikiHow format as indicated in The Writer's Guide, where steps 3 and 4 call for verbs:

3. Begin each step with an active verb. For example, "Check the gutter for obstructions," not "You need to ensure that the gutter is unclogged." 4. Avoid use of introductory phrases, such as "In the next step", "The next thing to do is", "Next." "Now that you have done Step 1, here is step 2."

I notice a ton of new articles come in out of format in this particular way, so I have recently written this.

KnowItSome said:

I tend to agree with you. I think I am just reacting to a torrent of articles which completely ignore the rule...

1guitarhero2 said:

Hey Ben,

I don't think we've ever met before, but I've seen you around. I have a question. When you revert vandalism, and you click on the article that is good date, it says to click edit this page. When you do so, do you just leave something in the edit summary and then click save page? Or do you have to delete something before you click Save page? My question is probably a bit confusing. Please tell me if you don't get it.

Hey, no offense, but is there any way that you can merge before you nfd? It might make a better wikiHow site. Why not take the two articles and take it to one? It seems like a better idea than deleting the duplicate topic. Please give me your feedback on this. I want to hear what you think. Maybe it would help me understand what the reason was for your duplicate topic NFD on some articles. Maybe I won't be like "Huh? Why NOT MERGE?" when I see one of those tags. Really, please help me understand the reasoning behind the tag in the first place.
Blabla96 said:
Thanks for the clarification. Do you do the "block users" or "malicious sockpuppets"? (I have some that the result of my message has not came back to my talk page, and I'd like to know if I'm correct in my thinking.)

Hey Ben can I ask a question; you seem to be pretty "au fait" with wikiHow:

I added the merge template to Stop-Caring-About-What-People-Think-of-You. Do I have to add it to the one I suggested that it be merged in to, and when I have finished merging it am I supposed to redirect that page or leave it to an Admin like yourself to delete it or something?
Bennelliott said:
Thank you, I have almost finished merging it now; I have decided that the Not Care What People Think article suits it best. I shall redirect it if I can; is the syntax "#REDIRECT [[Not Care What People Think]]" ?

greetings, i have noticed that a recent edit of yours has not been conductive to the best wishes of wikihow. unfortunately, people frequently place spam, irrelevant, or abusive information on wikihow. this is lamentable because it detracts from our goal of creating a useful, free how-to manual. the article "how to scare your little sister" has been nominated for deletion seeing as it is mean spirited and harmful to the victim. okay, that's the auto response thingy, but this is a warning.

An article you worked on, How to Do Multiplication a Different Way, is presently being considered for a title change.
