Hi Connor - Thanks for posting an underage user on the Admin Notice Board. I just wanted to remind you to use the {{userlinks}} template and to sign your posts on the board, as it really helps admins deal with problems efficiently. Just read through the instructions for the section you're posting in; they'll tell you all you need to know. Thanks!

Thanks for helping out on Recent Changes Patrol!

Patrolling is wikiHow's first line of Quality Control, and it's awesome you want to lend a hand! There's a lot to learn when you start patrolling, but a few guides can help:

How to Patrol Recent Changes
Interactive RCP Tutorial
How to Do a Manual Revert
Expert Tips & Advice on Patrolling

Some Patrolling Basics to Get You Started:

  • Article edits: If they're accurate and helpful additions, hit Mark as Patrolled. If they're vandalism or involve unnecessary inclusions of brand names or external links, hit Rollback. If they are helpful but are not in wikiHow style or format, or the edit contains mistakes, do a Quick Edit to fix the change.
  • Articles needing lots of help: If you come across an article with many mistakes, you can use Quick Edit to fix them up, or add templates for further editing. If you're not sure what needs fixing, just go ahead and skip it so someone else can add any necessary templates.
  • Talk pages: Generally, messages between talk pages that aren't vandalism or abuse are fine, too. You can mark them as patrolled, most of the time.
  • Discussion pages: Generally, most comments here are fine to patrol, but if you see obvious or repeat spamming, abusive or offensive content, you can remove it.
  • User pages: Most edits here are okay. Only rollback or question the edit if it's clearly vandalism by another editor or contains abusive content.

If you have questions, just let me know, or you can ask the Help Team. Thanks for helping out!

Hi there, I noticed you left this note for someone but I didn't understand it. Which article were you referring to? Did you place a merge tag?

Hello, I've noticed that you are really helpful here and I have a simple question. I need to write a formal letter and I'd like you to tell me how could I tell someone I don't know that I'm writing to ask them for money support (let's say for my sports club). I'd really apreciate any help. Thank you.

Most of the following doesn't apply to you (its a template), but I just wanted to ask if you wanted to join the welcome team, and that you read the following links.

Here is a link to an article on how to welcome new users: [[1]]

Here is the site dedicated to the welcome team: [[2]]


I noticed that you have been welcoming new users to wikiHow, which is great. Welcoming new users is vital to ensuring that new members will know how they can get started here, or where they can turn for help with a question they may have.

However, I do have a concern that I would like to share regarding the way that you are currently welcoming people to wikiHow. It's very important that we leave a great first impression with new people on wikiHow, and there are some things that we want to be sure to include in a welcome message:

  • Use proper grammar, including punctuation and spelling
  • Use complete sentences
  • Do not use anything too bright and flashy; we want to represent wikiHow professionally

One very easy way to leave someone a professional welcome message that will represent wikiHow well, is to leave someone the {{welcome}} template. This will include several helpful links to help the person get started, as well as a friendly introduction to wikiHow.

If you have any questions about how you can improve your welcome message, please feel free to leave me a talk page message, and I would be happy to help you out. Again, I appreciate your enthusiasm for wanting to help wikiHow, and I am glad you're here.

Ah, got it. It was just confusing because the article mentioned was at the end, so it's not clear whether that was the article you tagged for merging, or that was the article that the new one is a duplicate of. The {{merge}} tag is actually designed to include titles on talk pages, so if you write {{merge|Make a Fashion Line}} it will show up as follows (and it will be much easier for a new visitor to understand!)

Hi Connor Fleming/archive1. Thank you for starting a new article on wikiHow!

I noticed that a title you started (How to Make a Fashion Line) is very similar to a title we already have. It looks like they might be duplicates! On wikiHow, we consider two articles to be duplicates when their titles are practically interchangeable (even if the content is different). When we find a duplicate, we then work to make make sure all the information ends up consolidated on one page, typically the one with the simpler, more commonly searched title. That way, our readers can find everything about that particular topic in one place.

If you agree that the title you started is a duplicate, you can help by adding your how-to advice to the other page. The duplicate page will eventually get redirected to the other page, and we don't want to lose all the great information you provided. If you don't think your article is actually a duplicate, feel free to leave a note on the discussion page (which you can find here) explaining why, and let me know, too. Sometimes we make mistakes, and we definitely don't want to merge it if it is different!

If you have any questions or need help with anything, just reply to this message. Thanks again for contributing!

Connor, thanks for posting on the Admin notice board.

Since the user took down the "threat", I'm going to assume good faith and just think he was testing the wiki software. If this changes, post again and we'll deal with it then.

Hey Connor, I noticed you've been including the {{safety}} template along with the welcome template. You don't have to do that unless the editor posts personal information on a wikiHow article, as contributors are welcome to add whatever they'd like to on their user pages (within reason). Thanks for helping out!
