Hey Nick. Since you're on the wikiHow help team, I have a question for you. Originally, my user name was Wikismart, but I changed it to D-force. I was wondering if there's any way that I could make all the links to my old username link to my new one?

Nick,

How goes? Thanks for everything you are doing on wikiHow. BTW, I noticed you uploaded this cool looking image and licensed it CC-BY-SA http://www.wikihow.com/Image:Lightshorz1.png

Great, but you forgot to list the attribution link where you found the image.  :) With freely licensed images we need to have attribution links, so we can guarantee the image is really freely licensed and not just taken from another website and given the CC-BY-SA license. If this was done by accident, than don't worry about it, but in the future, be sure to link to the original source of the image.

Thanks so much for all your fine contributions to wikiHow.

This award is presented to Nickzeke for his work in improving wikiHow's current templates and creating new ones. He is always coming up with new ideas for useful templates, and changing the existing ones in ways such as adding new images. WikiHow would not be the same without Nickzeke's skill and creativity.

JackHerrickJack H said:

Nick,

First, big congrats on your new barnstars! Wow. Woot woot!.

Since you are one of the most prolific welcomers on wikiHow, I wanted to show you this new feature which can be added to your custom welcome message. Basically replace the links you have on your welcome message with {{welcomelinks}} which will then create:

Learn About wikiHow
Have a Question?
Things You Can Do
Explore & Experiment


on your welcome page. It can also be formatted to fit different color schemes as seen here:

If we can encourage all heavy welcomers, to start doing this, it will provide some uniformity in the links we offer new users. In addition, since the welcomelinks template is editable it will allow us to modify it over time as we have new improved help resources to show new users. Thus when we add features like the wikiHow Tour, we will find ways to show this to new users without having to modify each wikiHowians custom welcome.

Anyway, I hope this is something that you'd be willing to add to your custom welcome message. I'll try and encourage some other people to do this too :) After trying this, please let me know how it goes and if the templates need improving.

Thanks again for all you do for wikiHow. And thanks for all the people you have welcomed to our community.  :)

At 00:26, Nov 29, 2007

JackHerrickJack H said:

Oh, well. Thanks for thinking about it. Someone might want to make a more concise version of this, but for now I won't bother.

Since you aren't incorporating it, could you at least add a link on your welcome to wikiHow:Tour and remove the link to the admin noticeboard. THe admin noticeboard is great, but it isn't the first thing we want to show a brand new user. At best it will confuse them, at worst it will scare the heck out of them! The Tour is a good first place for all users though.

Thanks again!

Nice game!! =P

Tie 28 each during the 4th quarter. We made a touchdown at 44 seconds left, making us at 35 points.

You guys were 1st & Goal for the last 12 seconds. We did an interception in the touchdown zone at the last 3 seconds of the game.

Dear Nickzeke,

Hello there. I have noticed that Jenora lia c. has been asking wikihow contibutors personal information. I feel that Jenora lia c. should be blocked from wikihow for good. I cannot block him/her because I am not an admin, that is why I am asking you. So, may you please block that user from wikihow? Thanks for your time

Sincerely, LuckyBear

Hey Nick,

Thanks so much for patrolling RC. I saw you placed some username vios on names with just a few letters and numbers. I understand your intent, but those names seemed OK to me. I think we get more concerned when the names are like fhakjhfkjahdfkjah fjkahfhakhfa kjhjk

but something like gh34hs2 is OK since it can be identified. Sort of like Khluvr621  :)

Hy Nick! I had tried putting it in that category (speedy delete) for a few reasons. I will explain using the codes mentioned in the policy guide. The article in question could fall under the following categories:

1. MEA 2. HAT (Not within the categories on the nice little table) 3. Nonsense 4. Childish 5. Violation of "What Wikihow is not" quoted: "Understand that wikiHow is not a place to post instructions on activities that are hate based or obviously damaging..."

So sorry for kinda screwing up there and filing it for speedy deletion, it seemed like the right way to go about it, and frankly, I didn't quite understand how to do the nfd.

Thanks for the welcome, I look forward to working with you in the future!

Apologies for slow reply, I have been away. In response to a question you asked me some time ago, things should be way they have always been on IRC but in addition to this, everyone should remember to be mindful of each other and be civil and show respect. I think the best thing you should use to steer usage of IRC is commonsense. Thanks for asking anyway.

Hello Nickzeke:

My username is Yasmine81. Lucky Bear left a message on my talk page listing you as someone I could ask for help. I seem to have a problem, I can’t log in.

Every time I try it says I’m logged in, but then when I go to do something I’m not. This morning it says I have the wrong password, but last night it would just say I was logged in and then I wasn’t as soon as I did anything. What am I doing wrong?

Hi! I got on IRC for the first time this past week... and was immediately asked if I'd reg'd a nick? I'm lost... What's a nick and how would I reg it? Can you point me in the direction of a good explanation of how IRC works so that I can "get it"? Thanks!

Loiswade42Lois Wade said:

<Laughter> Read "just that page" you say? The document is 28 pages long! Good thing I read fairly fast... <grins>

Thanks for the link... seriously. While it may be long, I'll at least have a decent understanding of what's going on when I try IRC next time. Thank you.

Hello!

I was completing a major edit on the Induce Vomiting site. The nfd tag there was there at my suggestion. I did plan to leave it up following the edit but removed it when removing the other tags following the edit. When I went back to replace it I see you already had and sent the lovely nfd removal tag warning. It was not an intentional bad faith edit. Just wanted you to know.

I'm very familiar with it. I patrol regularly. I confess, I am also feeling put off that I received the note. I edit often and patrol regularly and I also post the same message on deserving talk pages.

I was in the process of editing and feel you acted hastily. It was a major edit and I did catch the removal and was attempting to put it back. My talk page now has a negative remark from a valued editor and it is discouraging.
