Nice work around here tonight!

John Comeau said:

Hi, before I go back and revert the changes: I'd like to know why you thought it better to remove my link to Bidstrup's site, which gave a concrete example of what people can do to reduce their own carbon footprint, and changed the wording on my other link from something immediately useful to something obscure. If you're working for one of these companies selling "offsets" I understand, but otherwise it doesn't make sense. Thanks -- jc

John Comeau said:

My apologies, that was Jack who made those changes... I gotta learn how to read those history pages... just ignore me. Thanks -- jc

Sorry idin't describe very well, how did you know are you an EMT? said:

Hello everyone, wanna be part of some kind of community, possible here? anyone here?

John Comeau said:

Hi, thanks for accepting my apology. I was referring to the article on "Buy a Carbon Offset". I had mistakenly thought you had deleted my links, then later realized it was Jack who had done it. I've since talked things out with Jack and added back the links. Thanks again -- jc

Congrats, Mighty Mouse, you have helped the Patrol Please project reach its goal, to get it at zero. You received this award because you did a lot of patrolling. As a big helper, you will get to go to one public IRC party on wikiHow, one just for the winners, this award, and something special.

We appreciate all your help!

Hi, Melodie. Just wanted to let you know why I rolled back the changes to How to use Commas. After some discussion with Krystle (see the Comma discussion page), I changed any and everything that might be construed as copied from Warringer's Engligh Grammar and Composition, which I relied upon as a referrence. The changes weren't superfluous. Thanks for keeping an eye out! -- Darth_Pipe

Thanks for bringing life into wikiHow...
Congratulations on Becoming a wikiHow Author Congratulations! You have made your first handful of edits on wikiHow and are now a co-author of our shared how-to manual. Of the millions of people who read wikiHow every month, very few overcome their initial fear of participation to make it this far. I, and the other volunteer editors here hope you will continue editing and help us fulfill our mission of building a complete, high quality, multilingual how-to manual. Again, congratulations on becoming a wikiHow author!

Bo said:
Good job patrolling!
Blabla96 said:

Hi. I removed some offensive comments off of your page that I caught patrolling. I'm sure you saw a few of them, but this one I just deleted, I missed the rollback button in patrol in case you wonder why I'm telling you this, Thanks,

There is a big difference between school policy and a violation of universal law. Violations of other organizations policies is not the responsibility of wikiHow. As long as it is no a violation of Law in most countries then it is not considered a violation of the wikiHow deletion policy. The seduction of a teacher is legally no different then any other person, unless it is specific to minors. This article clearly could by applied to a University or College environment where all parties are adults.
Nicole Willson said:

Done. Thanks :).

And thanks for all your great work here thus far. Have you considered adminship?

I think you might make a good admin at some point if you're interested. The next round of votes probably won't take place until the early fall, so you have some time.
KevAvatar said:
Is this the place to ask why you rolled back my addition to "Choose a Cell Phone Service"? It was my first contribution to WikiHow, but I've been a reader for months. The smackback without any explanation stinks--especially since my point regards a way by which cell phone providers tack on additional charges.
Heather said:

Congrats Mighty Mouse,

You're a champion!! Thanks for helping us to get the number of unpatrolled edits Down 2 Zero!! You're receiving this award due to your major role in patrolling. Thank you for watching out for wikiHow!!

P.S. We had no time for a party. We'll let you know about the DOUBLE PARTY!! Hope you'll help out again on our next campaign to patrol! You were great!

Have You Heard About...

Behavior Saviors Project?

The wikiHow Behavior Saviors Project needs your help!

Our goal is to get all teenage subculture articles fixed to perfection and to help kids fit in with a certain group. It's a universal truth that teens want to fit in - as does everyone else. Many people are contributing to wikiHow through articles that teach how to fit into a specific "group" (e.g. Goth, Prep, Punk). While there is no need to expel such articles, we can always do more to improve their standards.

To offer your help...

Please contact D rae or Tugging Heartstrings for more information.

If you are a teen (or young adult)
take a look at our Project Page and help lead a category.

If you are not a teen, but would love to help, consider the
Behavior Saviors Copyediting Team.

Hey, edits like this are actually okay and don't need to be deleted. Discussion pages are used for writing about the article. If you feel the content in not appropriate, then leave the content and add an {{ID}} tag. to the top of the discussion page. :)

Well, Mighty Mouse. I would really appreciate it if you could tell me what abusive behavior I have been exibiting. Because, frankly, I don't think I've broken any rules. And if I have, then you guys are WAY too strict. This is a PEOPLE'S how-to manual, now for some "strange" reason, I come to the conclusion that PEOPLE should be allowed to post the articles of their choice. I can respect that you and the board of administrators are trying to keep a clean and sensible place. I can only imagine what kinds of articles there would be on here if there was NO set of guidlines and rules. But it only seems fair that there should be some leniency, in that we should be given a just reason for why our articles do not fit the quota.

I look forward to your reply. -Me

However I think you need to clarify your Thai article you typed in something like

Hello... (a thai word)
Sawadeekrap... (a thai word again)

I know Hello and sawadeekrap means the same thing, but why are there two thai words? Do they have the same meaning?

Hey! You did an amazing job with the 1940s style article! Wow!

At 22:04, Dec 17, 2007

KrystleKrystle said:

Hey Melodie! I wasn't aware of the copyedit tag. I think someone put it up there solely in reference to the apostrophe issue. I don't remember apostrophe usage being country-specific; do you remember when this thread came up? I'm usually pretty good about keeping up with the forums but I might've missed this one. Anyway, I check out the apostrophe entry on Wikipedia and it says:

While British English formerly endorsed the use of such apostrophes after numbers and dates, this usage has now largely been superseded....For groups of years, the apostrophe at the end cannot be regarded as necessary, since there is no possibility of misreading. For this reason, most authorities prefer 1960s to 1960's...

Please share if you know otherwise. Also, the tag is in no way a comment on how much time you invested into the article. Here at wikiHow, no article is ever finished. There will always been people seeking to build upon and improve, and sometimes others can see room for improvement where the previous contributor didn't. That's a good thing, because it keeps articles improving over time. =)

JackHerrickJack H said:

Nice rewrite on 1940s fashion!

At 22:37, Dec 17, 2007

KrystleKrystle said:

I'm sorry, did I say that I believe Wikipedia has the answer to everything? I didn't mean to imply that. I was just sharing the knowledge I had immediate access to, and asked you if you could reciprocate with knowledge you had access to, with no presumption that Wikipedia's was any better or worse than yours.

Perhaps the contributor who added the tag did not happen to notice that you'd made a significant contribution to the article? It's not customary to check page history before adding a tag. I'm sorry if the tag made you feel like your significant contribution was any less significant. I don't believe that was the contributor's intention, but I prefer to assume good faith. =)

Finally, I'm sorry if I misinterpreted your concern. Removal of tags is something that those who are possessive of their contributions often do, so I may have misjudged your intentions based on past experience. If so, I apologize.

Let me know if there's anything I can do to help. My hope was to pay a compliment, and address your concern about the tag; I'm sorry if my attempt to help was misinterpreted negatively.

Oh, I am so sorry as I wasn't aware that you were just formatting. It really looked like you've written all those Thai words. Nevertheless, I am still happy to see you making each article better and better!

KrystleKrystle said:

Ah, are you referring to my brief conversation with Rob S. about the placement of the apostrophe? If so, please let me explain. I was asking Rob because he's written several articles about punctuation on wikiHow, and he's more familiar with wikiHow's historical punctuation standards than anyone I know. I also wanted to brush up on my own punctuation skills, so I turned to someone who I already knew was keen on punctuation usage. If I knew you were a stickler for punctuation, I would've asked you, but I wasn't aware. It was an innocent question about proper punctuation usage, and it was his idea and his choice to apply a tag - I didn't suggest it in any way. I was just curious. That being said, I'm sorry if you felt excluded; perhaps I should've left my inquiry on the discussion page, and let anyone answer who felt qualified to do so. That's certainly how I'll handle it next time. Thanks for understanding, and explaining your concerns. I really do appreciate it. =)
