I see you are new here! My name is Macey Zill, and I'd like to welcome you to wikiHow, the world's largest How-To Manual. Just to be clear, I am "at your service." If there is anything I can do to help you, please let me know by clicking "Reply to Macey Zill" at the bottom of this message.

First off, I'd like to give you a list of links that I'd advise you visit. These links will help you contribute to wikiHow:

  • You can write an article after you become completely familiar with the Writer's Guide.
  • If you don't want to create an article, you can edit one of the existing How-Tos.
  • If you can't find something to write about, write a request, requested by somebody that needs your help.
  • Another way to write on wikiHow (and not have to come up with a wiki-Topic) is to edit articles marked as stubs. Stubs are articles that have been started, but are a bit short.
  • You can also patrol Recent Changes. The Recent Changes is where every edit on wikiHow is monitored by a RC patroller. You can be one, too!
  • Finally, you can talk about any ideas you have at the wikiHow forums.
You can help the largest How-To Manual grow!
Anyway, I hope you enjoy wikiHow! :)

Well, that is a quite interesting question, TheGirlThatShines. It depends what you are asking, the question itself was a tad hazy. I am part of the Help Team...which helps new users, so if that is what you are asking, yes. But if you mean an admin--(that is a user that haves a few extra tools) no, I am not--yet. :P

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.

Regarding: and

Hey there,

Just wanted to let you know that unfortunately, I had to remove an image that you have uploaded. Here's some general advice about images that may be of assistance:

  • Copyrighted images (most commonly found through Google Images, blogs, etc) cannot be used without explicit written permission from the original owner. These include video captures from YouTube or other videos uploaded to the internet. Please make sure to upload only images that you either created yourself (with a phone, webcam, or your own camera) or can confirm the license for.
  • If you wish to use a copyrighted image on wikiHow, you must obtain explicit written permission from the original owner before uploading it here.
  • Stock photography, even when purchased, cannot be uploaded to wikiHow due to the sublicensing terms applied. You can read more about it through
  • To find freely licensed images to share on wikiHow, you can check out How to Import Freely Licensed Images Into wikiHow.
  • If you have seen an image that is already on wikiHow (such as in an article) and you would like to use it, rather than re-uploading it, please click on the image to go to its image page. On the bottom of the picture, you will see a wikitext code that you are more welcome to use.

If you have any questions about images or need assistance to determine whether an image is copyrighted, please don't hesitate to contact me by clicking on the "Reply to Maluniu" link below.

"Gee... I wonder what article I should enter into the Back to School Contest?"

Back to School Contest

All you need to do is write or improve an article
about a school-related topic.

If you have a few minutes, why not give it a try?

\ Not really. It depends on the individual website, if they allow their pictures to be freely distributed to other websites or not. You can however try to find free images that you can use on wikiHow by going to this link. Or would you like me to search for something? I really hate to delete the images, but it would have to be a last resort if there is no license present.

Dreamgal2Sondra C said:

Someone thought that this is wikipedia....and he is extremely rude.

your article is a good one, however there is anther same article written, so yours and the other one will have to be merged to make one article.

Maybe someone else also answered the request.

I am not sure as I did not read both articles

Dreamgal2Sondra C said:

Thank you. I have been here almost 2 years now..but I started and did not understand either. it takes time.

If you are interested in a specific subject, then how about writing on that?

Think about something special. But make sure that it has not already been written

I'm sorry i was so sarcastic and ruined your page. I was having a really bad day and destroyed the first thing i saw. But still, my actions were too cruel to be forgiven that easily, and i truly am sorry. And maybe that person who commented negatively on your page was having a terrible day; maybe they were simply mean. But don't let people bring you down like that, because they most probably feel terrible soon after, like me...once more, i am sorry.

Well I just added the title page, so it will be changed.Good work. You wrote it well, and when you need help, please let me know. I will guide you.

The title should be: Memorize the song Complicated

thats a good title.

Add the name of the artist in the article itself.

Someone will now change the title for you and the article is completed.

Hey there TheGirlThatShines!

It appears that you may have forgotten to assign a license to the pictures you recently uploaded. I just wanted to verify whether you made these pictures yourself or got them from somewhere else:


If this is a screenshot of computer software, let me know so I can tag the image as Fair Use. If you got it from a search engine, like Google or Bing, or a website you found, please let me know which site - images that are copyrighted can't be used on wikiHow and have to be removed, but you can search for images we already have permission to use by entering search terms in the Search area instead of uploading using the "Browse" button. For more information, see Import Freely Licensed Images Into wikiHow. If you're searching for images on the web, check to make sure they have a "Creative Commons" or "Public Domain" license associated with them (might be found near the picture, or in the site's Terms of Use), rather than "All Rights Reserved". If using Google Images, you can click on "Search Tools", then "Usage Rights", then "Labeled for Reuse".

Thanks again! If there's anything I can help you with now or in the future, don't hesitate to contact me or someone else in the wikiHow forums. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

When you write an article, is is always best to make sure that we do not have same or similar articles.

We have many of the same, so yours will most likely be tagged merge

Dreamgal2Sondra C said:

If there is an article the same, then it is mentioned. if it is not mentioned, then there is no article the same.

Aside from that, when you go to create a new article, there is a message that tells you the other articles with the same name. so if there is one, then do not write the article.

I wish you'd come back. Even though I don't even know you. To be honest, NO ONE on here is a good writer. That's why we're here instead of out in the real world publishing best-sellers. I know you'll want to give up on here, but don't. The only way your going to become a good writer is if you keep practicing, and not only can you practice here, but you can get help from others without looking like a bonehead.

Missing you already,
