Hello Technist,

Americana Washington DC 3072.jpg
Thanks for riding along on patrol today!
I have a techy (tell me how to spell it if I'm wrong) problem for you -- with my talk page :) Garshepp sent me a few messages as well as Gracie (Gracelinhappy), Emma (Fathimah) and Krystle. Garshepp sent me the only current message; the others are from last year! But, they didn't do it on the current talk page! They did it on this strange talk page. Could you help me find out what they did?

I just chose your article on how to Quickly Determine the Equation of a Parabola in Vertex Form to be a Rising Star. That means it is one of the best new articles on wikiHow. Congratulations, and thanks for the great contribution!

Thanks for your edits on Grow Long Hair if You Are a Black Female.

We, being a global website, should specify American? I really don't think so, but then again, I grew up in a different age?>

Nope, for most templates it's always been that way (well, during my time here, anyway!) - there are a couple of templates that I think it doesn't work on, like notifiedcopyvio I think - but for the basics, it should work :)

Hi! I saw that you put "form" instead of from - I thought that you meant put from, as it would make sense in the sentence, but if I was wrong, I'm sorry. :)

AnnaAnna said:

Hey again,

Just wanted to give you a heads-up that I went ahead and demoted Create an Epay Account because it's the kind of spam we get all too much of around here - folks just creating accounts to try to promote their often somewhat obscure products or services (often in tech!), and not contributing to the mission in any other way. We used to keep that kind of article but unfortunately they really don't help readers very much, since they're not neutral and are often essentially not much more than ads. Judging by the reader feedback that kind of topic gets, they tend to be pretty disappointing to folks wanting helpful, neutral advice :/

A good rule of thumb is that if the contributor doesn't have a long history of contributing neutrally/helpfully to wikiHow, and the product isn't something you've heard of (e.g. Amazon, Ebay, etc would be okay, because they're well-known and commonplace), it's best not to promote it. If you have more questions about that, though, let me know - cheers!

Hey! I'm not sure why you reverted this categorization? As far as I understand, the article is about musical instruments :) Let me know if you disagree!

At 16:07, May 01, 2016

AnnaAnna said:

Hmm gotya, yeah - tricky one. I'd say that they're almost merge candidates, since the ingredients besides the toppings look very similar. I'm not much of a chef, though, so I'm not sure if there's a big meaningful difference in process/outcome from the whipped topping. My guess is they're referring to something like Cool Whip there, though, rather than whipped cream, so maybe we should tweak the title to "Whipped Topping" instead? What do you think?

Hello, I have learned that my Daughter had posted an article on or about 4/28/2016 titled "How to Fold a Paper/Origami Crown". She received an email saying that that there was a potential copyright violation. I have looked at what she posted and she did in fact post an article that was from another site without changing it or citing it. She is 11 years old and did not understand the concept of plagiarism. I have talked to her and she understands that she made a mistake and will cite her sources in the future. This issue was not done intentionally. Please feel free to remove the article. Thank you.

Heya Technist,

We just got back, on Sunday, from our annual meetup, and I'm still buzzing at having seen everyone in person. I don't know if it's your kind of thing or not - meeting everyone face to face - but if it might be (we have a ton of fun!), you should check out some pictures of the weekend here, and more importantly chime in with any suggestions you have about a location, here. I forget whether you're located in North America? If not, I know it can be a trek to make it out, but there are some parts of the country easier to get to than others, so even then, it's worth making some suggestions if you might be interested in going next year! It'd be neat to connect in person one of these days :)

Heya Technist,

First of all - happy wikiBirthday! Congrats on the milestone!

In light of your anniversary here, would you like to be in the "Meet a Community Member" widget? If so, go ahead and fill out this form. Hope you do!

And if so, could you upload an avatar of yourself? It doesn't have to be a close-up (for example mine doesn't show my face), but since the widget is about meeting people, visitors really enjoy seeing a photograph of the person in the widget. Congrats again on your wikiBirthday! :)

Heya Technist - long time no talk!

I just happened upon you name on a list of the folks who've been helping with Q&A answers since we launched that feature, and it inspired me to come over to your talk page and say thanks... and hey! How's everything in your neck of the woods?
