Hi Hal Marie,

Thanks for joining our community.

Since you're new, feel free to take the wikiHow tour to learn about how things work around here.

Please leave a message on my talk page if you have any questions about contributing to wikiHow!

Hi there! good to have you back using wikiHow again. Thanks for the TU on those 3 articles. Hope to see you around the wikiHow site, kind regards, Sarah

Hi there, great to hear that you are settling back in so well. Kind regards, Sarah

AnnaAnna said:

Ah, welcome back, Hal! Nice to have you back with us.

Thanks so much for helping out with patrolling. I know it can be tricky to remember all the ins and outs of the policies after you've been on a long wikibreak, so I thought I'd drop by and see if you have any questions? I'm happy to help if you do :)

Have you checked out How to Patrol Recent Changes yet, since your return? It has some really good advice about what to do with different kinds of edits - in case it's helpful as a reminder, here are some basics out of the article for you:

  • Article edits: If they're accurate and helpful additions, keep them. If they're vandalism or involve unnecessary inclusions of brand names or external links, roll them back. If they are helpful but are not in wikiHow style, format, or the edit contains mistakes, do a Quick Edit to fix the edit.
  • Articles that need a ton of work: If you see an article with a ton of mistakes in it, you can use Quick Edit to fix them up, or you can add templates for further editing.
  • 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.


I'm always curious to hear - what brought you back to wikiHow? I'm glad you came back to the community!

AnnaAnna said:

Oh neat! What kind of writing do you focus on?

At 15:49, Sep 04, 2015

AnnaAnna said:

Great! Glad to have you back :)

AnnaAnna said:

You mean the Unit Guardian edits? Those come out of the Unit Guardian] tool and add a template to convert measurements into both metric and imperial units. You don't have to check the math; that should be right, but it's worth checking the context and whether having a conversion there is helpful and makes sense in context. If it isn't a good addition, you can roll it back :)

Nice patrol work. :) I'm seeing a lot of your edits while on patrol.

You're welcome! That's great to hear, you seem to be doing a great job already.

AnnaAnna said:

Do you mean the Writer's Guide and formatting guidelines? Those'd probably come in handy. We do have a lot of guides on how to get back to school, back into the routine, etc, though, so that might be a duplicate topic :/

Thank you for putting my talk page back the way I like it. I appreciate it.
I'm around here quite a bit. We'll probably see each other's work again soon. I hope so. You seem a very conscientious contributor. Happy wikiHow-ing.

KrystleKrystle said about Tidy a Workplace Cubicle:

Congrats on starting your first wikiHow article!

I just wanted to touch base in case you were wondering what happens next :) All new articles go through a quality review process to ensure they follow our community guidelines. If your article meets those guidelines, you'll get a note letting you know that it's been promoted.

In the meantime you can continue editing to improve your article, or try visiting our Community Dashboard for other ways to help. You might get a kick out of flipping through the Topic Greenhouse to find articles in your area of expertise so you can add your knowledge there, too!

Tidy a Workplace Cubicle

Hi there welcome to wikiHow and thank you for starting an article for wikiHow! I see Krystle has already explained the process that all new articles go through before they are fully published here on wikiHow. I am one of the editors who review those articles and I have read your article and it looks like the article at the moment doesn't have steps that are "actions" for the reader to take. It also helps to make sure there are no errors in the writing or grammar and flesh out your ideas as much as possible, using research sources if possible. Would you mind trying to reword those starting with verbs, as instructional steps for the reader to follow?

Please read our Writer's Guide and formatting wikiHow articles editing basics it is very important to Cite Sources to validate your instructions and Avoid Using Personal Reference on wikiHow for more information to help you through this process. Regards, Sarah

Hello there! I'm Tinkerbrain, a welcomer on wikiHow. I certainly hope that you're having a great time here! Got any questions or comments? Post them on my talk page. I love hearing suggestions, questions, and input from all of my fellow users! Your contributions are fantastic. Keep up the great work, Hal Marie!

SarahBSarahB said:

Hi there, thanks for the message! You can add pictures, just check out Put a Photo in a wikiHow Article; it's pretty easy! Just a reminder: taking images from elsewhere on the Internet is generally not allowed, because they're usually copyrighted. But you can import your own images (ones you've taken or created), or you can use the images you find from Flickr and Wikimedia in the image upload tool (you'll see a spot to search for them). Those ones are freely licensed, so they're fair game to use here. You can also request images from our team if you prefer.

At 16:54, Sep 06, 2015

SarahBSarahB said:

Hi there, thanks for asking me to put some images into your article. I really don't think I can help there as I am really not sure what images you want in the article. I hope this makes sense. Have you tried logging out and back into wikiHow as I am not having problems with editing. If you are still experiencing problems you can report it on the Forums here Regards, Sarah

At 17:42, Sep 06, 2015

SarahBSarahB said:

Hi there and thanks for asking about wikiHow admins and what the wikiHaus is.

Read this article Become a wikiHow Admin about our admins and explains about wikiHow staff and the wikiHaus which is the name of the place where the most of the Admins and employees work. I hope this helps? Kind regards, Sarah

Moosey9Liana said:

I think the current title is sufficient. However when you add Comfort with Décor, the article becomes more than just tidying your cubicle, it's basically customizing it. So you could maybe go for How to Tidy and Decorate a Workplace Cubicle. The workplace cubicle is probably necessary just so people know it's your cubicle at work but of course you don't really have a cubicle anywhere else... Also, yes, the article is off to a good start and I think it does definitely has room for improvement.

Thanks I only thought of that because I disabled email! And yes the deletion policy is always good to remember xD Sadly sometimes I wish articles wouldn't qualify for an NFD. My absolute favorite article, How to Understand Humans (for Chickens) is going to be deleted. I know why but it's quite a tragedy isn't it? All chickens need to understand humans.

Did you explain to them that my motive was to encourage teenagers aged 13-14 to start practicing, with the parents around, handling babies for practice? Before babysitting. To me, when I read the new article, it touches on baby-sitting! I think your pictures, wording, etc were great! Don't get me wrong, but the intro leads the wrong way, and 3,4,5 touch on babysitting. I doubt Adelaide saw the article previously so she wouldn't know the difference.

Thanks for your edits on User_talk:209.73.137.173.

Feel free to avoid engaging with him. If you suspect any more sock puppetry, feel free to report it on the wikiHow:ANB so an admin can take care of it!

It looks like they received a number of warnings and haven't vandalized since, so hopefully they're all done with that! If you see more, though, the quickest way to get admin help us to report it on the wikiHow:ANB. Thanks Hal!

You just need to make sure that the capital letters and spelling are exactly the same as on the original article. In this case, the lowercase "n" instead of "N" was the issue but I adjusted it :)

"I guess he vandalized or something or just made a lot of negative comments about wikihow...?"

He did both, and he had been blocked multiple times for that in the past. That's part of why he was blocked for a year. Bummer!

At 02:35, Sep 22, 2015

AnnaAnna said:

Hey Hal - if you come across edits like this where the whole thing isn't very helpful, would you mind rolling it back rather than quick editing? With quick editing, it's easy to miss some details, which is what happened here. I edited them out after your patrol, here. Does that look okay to you now?

Cheers for catching that the edit was unhelpful! It's just often easier to undo the whole thing with a rollback, than to try to fix each part, if it was all unhelpful :)

Hey there again, I noticed your nfd on this article. Thanks for helping, at first I thought it was a joke topic as well; but after I searched for it, I found that the title was a misnomer (see actual disease here) and the article could be helpful. For now, I'm removing your {{nfd|jok}}—because it doesn't seem fit— and cleaning up the article or nfd-ing it for accuracy. Once again, thanks for concerning! If you have any other questions, feel free to reply back.

At 22:08, Sep 22, 2015

SkyllfulCarter said:

Ya, that's looking okay. If you can though, I'd like to see bits of info suggesting how the existing steps relate to the topic—otherwise, people might think the article is inaccurate—and if you're up to it, add more steps directed towards using the computer. I'll put an {{accuracy}} on it for now, because it seems like it doesn't exactly complete the task; if you're gonna' edit it, remember to put a {{inuse}} template, so other edits don't conflict.

At 22:13, Sep 22, 2015

SkyllfulCarter said:

Thanks so much for saving that article! You basically made it from scratch, I'm impressed. Once we get those improvements going, it should basically be ready for promotion.

At 22:24, Sep 22, 2015

AnnaAnna said:

It looks like you guys are collaborating on it already - that's great. I think it's looking better but could still use some editing to keep the steps on topic and address those accuracy concerns :)

Hi Hal Marie!

Thanks for marking the article "Have Kids" as NFD. For future reference, don't be afraid to mark articles as a speedy, especially ones like that! If the article is nonsense, add the speedy template and it'll be deleted pretty quickly :)

At 23:37, Sep 23, 2015

AnnaAnna said:

That's because there's a daily limit on some accounts for patrolling, to make sure the focus is on quality, not quantity. You already patrolled 200 edits today, which is a lot! You'll be able to patrol more tomorrow, though :)

Krdd1308Krdd1308 said:

Thank you!

At 23:58, Sep 23, 2015

AnnaAnna said:

You've been patrolling a ton, and that's for the most part very helpful, but I spotted a few patrols where you marked things without making sure they were totally up to our standards. For example, in this edit, it would have been good to Quick Edit a few errors in the addition, like this - or, even a more helpful full edit, like this. Does that make sense? It's important to keep quality in the forefront of your mind while patrolling, and make sure that anything you approve is free of errors, particularly on a promoted article. Slowing down will probably be helpful for that :)

At 00:03, Sep 24, 2015

AnnaAnna said:

Yep, I sent you my diffs to show you the parts of that edit you marked patrolled that needed fixing; it contained some errors in punctuation and capitalization. Those, at least, should be fixed before you approve the edit.

The last diff I sent was an example of how you could improve the whole article with a bigger edit, beyond just fixing that most recent change.

I'm glad to hear you skip when you're not sure - that's always good!

At 00:08, Sep 24, 2015

AnnaAnna said:

Sounds good! And yes, limits expire in a month if there's no reason to reset them :)

AnnaAnna said:

Thanks for your edits on Make Carrot Cake. I wanted to ask about this edit you marked patrolled. I saw your Quick Edit afterwards - glad you decided to fix up the grammar! But to me, it seems like this whole change could have been undone? It removed several working links and replaced them with one that doesn't work, and added a fairly obvious warning? What were your thoughts on that one?

At 17:49, Sep 24, 2015

KrystleKrystle said:

Aw, thanks!

At 19:55, Sep 24, 2015

AnnaAnna said:

Sorry, my wording must be confusing - Look at the diff here - it removed the Related wikiHow links on the left, and replaced them with one that doesn't work, on the right. Does that make more sense?

At 20:23, Sep 24, 2015

AnnaAnna said:

Generally we don't edit other talk pages messages, but if it's just something small like a spacing issue, you're probably okay to fix it :)

At 20:29, Sep 24, 2015

AnnaAnna said:

And on your other message: Yep, I think anyone reading a cooking article is already going to be aware that ovens are hot, so there's no need to call it out individually on that topic. It's not specific to making carrot cake, and for folks following along a complicated recipe, I reckon it's a given :)

Don't worry - I know you're making lots of great patrols, too! It's just part of my role here to give feedback to patrollers as they go. Thanks for taking the feedback well :)

Hmm, tricky. I guess to me I don't see the difference between being yourself and being your authentic self? After all, if you're being a non-authentic version of yourself, aren't you just... not being yourself?

As for the depression-focused angle -- we could change the title, but the bar is definitely very high for health and mental-health related topics, so I'd advise getting a lot of reputable medical sources in there to back up the advice :)

Hello Hal Marie. I just stumbled upon your edit to Invite a Girl to the Prom as I was doing recent changes patrol and I undid it because I think it violates one of wikiHow's policies. I'd be happy to explain in further detail, if you'd like to know. I'm also willing to consider that I misunderstood your edit, and that maybe it isn't against policy after all. Write back if you think that's the case.die.

Thanks for contributing here! I was patrolling recent changes just now, reviewing all the edits made on wikiHow and deciding which ones stay and which ones go. I think your edit to Make a Fountain from Small Clay Glasses might be inconsistent with one of wikiHow's policies, so I undid it. But, I could be wrong! Reply if you'd like me to put it back, we can talk about it.

Character articles are only for articles on how to act like others. Is there a reason you put it on there?
