As long as you hit no, it won't go live on an article, so it should be a-okay. If you prefer not to see those images though, I totally understand- I'd just use a different tool instead! Personally I'm not a huge fan of Picture Patrol either so no worries if you want to skip it!

Embed a Google Drawing

Thanks for starting an article on wikiHow! I just wanted to let you know that it's been categorized as a stub, meaning that it's a good outline (and we're glad you started it!), but still has some room to grow. We want to be sure that the article has enough step-by-step details in it so that a person reading it can accomplish this task from start to finish.

Do you have any more information you can add? You can also get details from other sites, as long as you put them in your own words and reference them. Either way, it's off to a good start. It'll be great to see how it develops! If there is anything I can do to help you expand the article or get around on wikiHow, please let me know!

Thanks for starting a wikiHow article! I was wondering, would you be able to add step-by-step pictures to the article? Here's a guide, if you're interested:

How to Take Photos for wikiHow

Once you're ready to upload them, just look for the "Add Image to Steps" button. If you need help or run into any problems, take a look at the instructions here or ask me. I'll be happy to lend a hand!

If you're not inclined to add photos yourself, hopefully the tag I left on the article will catch the attention of one of our community's photographers. Either way, thanks for sharing your know-how with us!

Thanks for starting a new article here! Unfortunately, I noticed that your article (How to Send an SMS with PHP) doesn't appear to have enough content to be useful to readers, so I nominated it for deletion as incomplete, because we don't generally keep articles that don't provide written instructions.

If it's just that you weren't finished with it, please edit the page and write {{inuse}} at the very beginning. This will tell our editors that you need another week or two to finish the page. Don't remove the {{nfd}} tag, though! When you've finished writing the article, someone else will remove it for you.

If you're not sure what to write, read our article on how to use information from other sites and how to cite it properly.

I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any questions.

Oh, very cool! The Maltese project isn't quite up and running just yet as far as I know, but if you signed up on the page, the international team will let you know when it does happen one day :)

Hey there, I wanted to let you know that I just promoted your article on How to Share Your Google Drawing. That means it's now fully published and searchable so that readers can find your good advice! Nicely done :)

No prob- happy to help!

AnnaAnna said:

Sure - check out Categorize a wikiHow Article. I'd suggest doing a separate article for Google Sheets, since folks tend to search by the program they're using, and the two topics are distinct :)

AnnaAnna said:

I think 6 methods is fine but you'd just want to make sure to flesh them out with detail and explanation so that the reader can follow along without any questions about each one :)

Watermarks are only added to images uploaded by the Wikivisual bot from our visual team - but no worries, adding screenshots without watermarks isn't a problem at all!

Create a Datebase for Numbers Online(via Gooogle Sites)


I noticed that an article you started doesn't really follow an instructional format. Can I offer some advice to help it from getting deleted? Since we're a how-to site, it's important that in each of the steps of the article, you give the reader an action to take. It's good to provide background information, but without actual instructions, it's more of an encyclopedia or blog entry than a how-to.

Can you revise the article with this in mind? For more information and tips on writing on wikiHow visit our Writer's Guide and How to Format a wikiHow Article. I hope they're helpful! Let me know if you have any questions, or if there's anything I can do to help.

Hey Darren!

Congrats on being featured in our Community Achievements. Do you use Microsoft Excel? :)

At 01:25, Nov 22, 2015

AdelaideAdelaide said:

No problem, but I'm not the one who added you :) You would have to thank Krystle, our awesome community support person, for that. All I did was notify you that you were featured so you could come check it out! :)

AnnaAnna said:

Ah, that template won't work well on such a big chunk of text. Check out the options for bigger sections of code in How to Write a Programming Article on wikiHow instead :)

At 20:37, Dec 02, 2015

AnnaAnna said:

Do you want me to go ahead and remove the article? If you copied the code from another source, it can't be shared without permission from the copyright holder.

At 18:19, Dec 04, 2015

AnnaAnna said:

In theory, that's doable, but the site that our copyright violation bot found wasn't the Pastebin one; it was this site. So it's hard to tell who actually owns the copyright to that code. Perhaps you could email that webmaster and ask him if he wrote the method or if he got it from the pastebin?

At 14:58, Dec 05, 2015

AnnaAnna said:

Thanks for pointing out the pastebin link- I didn't see that! Ok I've removed the copyvio template and placed attribution instead :)

There isn't an active site for that just yet but our international team is rolling out languages one by one, so maybe one day!

Nothing has changed there so it should work the same as ever. What happens when you try?

Hello! I was wondering if you wanted to discuss the change you made to Be a Stylish Tween. I undid it while I was patrolling recent changes, as the video really doesn't fit with the article. but perhaps I misunderstood what you were trying to do. Can you explain?

At 06:46, Jul 06, 2016

InfernoTerraStephen said:

That's okay, I'm sure it was an accident or misjudge just please make sure you are watching at least the beginning of the video to make sure it fits with the article. We wouldn't want a music video on a how-To or something silly like that.

Make sense? If I can be of anymore help please feel free to ask. Until then happy editing!
