Hi Twerty,

Thanks for joining the wikiHow community. Since you're new, you might want to take the wikiHow tour to learn about how things work around here.

Please leave a message on my talk page, by clicking the link below, if I can help you with anything on wikiHow!

Rob S said:

Thanks for the helpful edits today.

Nicole Willson said:

Thank you for marking that article as speedy.

Rob S said:

Sure. Check out Wikihow:Templates for all of the templates [including those for discussion pages, etc.].

Wikihow:Templates/article has the list of templates that you can use on article pages. Hope that helps.

Destiny said:

what article???

Jack H said:

Hey there,

Thanks for patrolling recent changes. I noticed you just marked http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Sweat-Bath-in-the-Wilderness

as a speedy. When you looked at it the page was only vandalized. It is smart to always check page history, before placing NFD or speedy tags. Usually blank pages are good articles that have been temporarily vandalized. You can learn how to Revert Vandalism in wikiHow to help with this. many thanks for your efforts here.

Destiny said:

ya i was

Jack H said:

Don't sweat it. I caught it really fast. :) We all make these mistakes. :)

Destiny said:

i like that article

Rob S said:

I saw what happened. :P Don't feel bad. There was a time that we were featuring Calculate Pi by Throwing Frozen Hot Dogs and someone did the same thing. However, given the first appearance of the title [which almost seems to be a joke], one of the admins accidentally deleted it!

I guess they became generally more watchful as a result. But anyway, thanks for continuing to help out.

Rob S said:

Don't mention it.

I'm long used to the whole rebellious "I own the Internet!!1" group by now. There's nothing to be pitiful about, really. That's all that they are, half the time—children.

Apparently not.

Richard said:

I think things will be taken care of.

Daniel H said:

Hey Twerty, I see you are a good editor. Perhaps you could help me with my latest project? I need all the help I can get. I am trying to get rid of all the dead-end articles. Read my profile to see more! :)

Richard said:

Thanks for helping wikiHow grow into something beautiful.



Thanks for all the hard work you have doing... I hope you stick around!!


Katie R. said:

I know their not destructive, and I see what he's trying to do: add 'Option One', 'Option Two', and 'Option Three' to the steps. However, he's not going about it in the correct way and it's messing up the formatting. I was rolling them back because I was trying to do that, except in advanced editing. However, it kept creating an edit war. Sorry if you thought it was too hasty. =(

Katie R. said:

You weren't bothering me. I was taking the information he was adding and trying to format it correctly. Thanks for pointing out my mistake. =)

Richard said:

Hi there, Thanks for reverting those spam pages. Can you copy and past the offending links to the page of an admin, asking them to put it on the spam blacklist?

Thanks

Krystle said:

Hey! Only URLs can be added to the spam blacklist. Could you give me links to the discussion pages that they spammed? IP addresses can be blocked, and I might do that, too, but it's more important to block the site(s) they're trying to promote, because they can always sign in under a different IP address and do the same thing again =/

KnowItSome said:

Thanks for your good work here. I see that you nominated this article for deletion:

http://www.wikihow.com/Tell-if-Carlos-Resindez-Is-Straight

that is certainly appropriate, however in this case, we can let this one go faster due to its vanity nature (it names specific individuals who are not famous). For this kind of thing, you may place the speedy tag. Let me know if you need more information.

Thanks again for all you are doing.

Krystle said:

Cool, thanks! You'll get the hang of it. I appreciate the help you're providing (although I'm sure the spammers don't, ha!).

KnowItSome said:

My policy on "celebrities" I have not heard of is either to google them to find out if they are in fact a celebrity, or, more likely, to delete if it seems on a quick read-through, that they are likely to be a non-celebrity. My personal opinion is that the burden lies on the writer to let us know who it is they are writing about. This comes up often in the case of TV characters, etc. Again, that is just my personal approach, not official policy.

Vanity pages can always go speedy, so don't spare the speedy tag in that case.....but yes, many other areas are a bit blurry.

Krystle said:

I think only admins can do it--I believe this is to prevent the spammers themselves from editing the spam blacklist. Here's how it's done. Have you considered becoming an admin? If so, check out How to Become a wikiHow Admin. =)

Krystle said:

Yep, it is more of an additional responsibility than anything else. Good for you for realizing that and not biting off more than you can chew!

Hello Twerty,

Congrats on your wonderful contributions to wikiHow!

You are truly an asset to the site.

The Weekly Improvement Project needs your help!

Brandywine said:

IMO, I don't see how getting music off MySpace is universally illegal. There are quite a few artists who advertise on MySpace and offer free downloads on their pages.

Horses4Ever said:

Its okay - I understand :)

Rob S said:

Hi Twerty. The main reason that I changed your speedy to an NFD is because the page was created by a registered user. Even if the article is still low-quality, I'd rather allot some time for new users to recognize that their articles are being removed, rather than to remove it without notice. Better that, than have them create more articles that will only be removed later.

But that's just the way that I see it, personally. Anonymous authors who contribute a fatal lack of content, on the other hand—fair game, more or less. :P

Brandywine said:

Replied as well.

KnowItSome said:

I doubt that Glutted added the chocolate article back in. he was probably editing it for relateds at the time of the second deletion. happens sometimes, an accidental recreation of a delete. Since another admin has now stubbed this, I will not be deleting it again. But if you want to place an NFD, no one will stop you.

KnowItSome said:

We have that message during standard edit collisions......which you may have run into by now once or twice. Your idea about extending this message to accidental deletes might be worthy of posting in the tech feedback forum. But I don't think it happens very often and anything accidentally recreated will go through proper channels again, just as did the first article.

Good thought, however. I will leave it up to you to decide whether to pursue that.

Brandywine said:

I am not one to argue either. We both have very valid points.

I would like to say that it is great to see you taking an active role here at wikiHow. Your involvement and interest is greatly appreciated. Feel free to msg me should you have any questions (though you're getting schooling by some of the best already). :)

B.

KnowItSome said:

You mentioned this in a talk page note:

They get paid. Anyway, the funny thing about categories are that only the articles that the leaders/admins put there are included in categories.

Just wanted to make sure that you know that the overwhelming number of our articles have been placed in categories. Only the very new additions will be waiting to be categorized......

Only 21 are currently uncategorized pages:

http://www.wikihow.com/Special:Uncategorizedpages

KnowItSome said:

We do have some categories which could use a substantial amount of work. Some people take an interest in learning one category well, and then helping to post requests for what is missing, or helping to flesh out any stubs we may have. Maybe CARS could use someone like this.........

KnowItSome said:

That is really okay, Twerty. I was a bit confused by your note to me, since I had did not seen whatever it was which prompted your first comment. I am enjoying working with you.....
</div

KnowItSome said:

No...not cumulative. The end date for the block remains the same. Good point, though. Thanks, Twerty, I am continuing to enjoy seeing your good work here.

KnowItSome said:

I am quite sure that this was not I, Twerty.......

KnowItSome said:

don't worry about that one iota, Twerty. This place and all the edits and revisions and so on and so forth can make one's head spin.....

Ms.Prez said:

I don't believe we've met. I'm Ms.Prez.

Ms.Prez said:

Don't worry it's fine. I have seen many of your accomplishments of yours as well.

Ms.Prez said:

You wrote:

I must say, I find it dismally amusing how you (and others, judging by my talk page) think I add to this website; all I'm truly doing is keeping bad away, instead of adding good. Attacking others by simply defending my own, if you will. Over 200 'contributions' and nothing added.


I think that we need more people to keep the bad away...because we can't start making good until the bad is gone. I think you're a great editor and you are making your edits very worth while.

How are you?

1guitarhero2 said:

Oh ok.

Ms.Prez said:

True

Jack H said:

Many thanks for your help on recent changes. It is really making a difference. :)

Krystle said:

Hey!

Was there any particular reason you rolled back this person's comment on the talk page? If it's because of the vulgarity, it might be better to leave it and just put the inappropriate discussion tag at the top of the page. I'm not sure exactly what the policy is for patrolling discussion pages is, but I think that we only roll back comments when they're gibberish or utterly unconstructive (e.g. "f*!# u"). In this case, there's actually an opinion buried within all that name-calling! =P

Katie R. said:

Hey! It's nice to have a fellow patroller around here. I saw that you rolled back a bunch of spam edits - good job! It gets kind of lonely on patrol sometimes, its nice to have you there. =)

KnowItSome said:

Hi Twerty,

I continue to be impressed by your dedication.

Two things. I wonder if we could get just a bit more gentle in our comments to users? I know that some of them are real pieces of work, but it is even more important, in relations with such users, to take a very toned-down approach.

And two, no matter what we might have to tell a registered user, it is a good idea to be sure they have first been welcomed by someone. If they have not been welcomed, you may welcome them first, by placing this on the talkpage:

{{welcome}}

I usually place that welcome in one message, and then come back and place the warning or whatever in the next message. You know about our warning templates, do you? Takes a lot of the guesswork out of the job of communicating with these users.

{{warning}}

{{unwanted}}

Dave Crosby said:

Hi Twerty, re KnowItSome's comment above we also try and be nice to anon users. http://www.wikihow.com/User_talk:24.129.81.94

Dave Crosby said:

Ok, thanks for that. You'll get used to it, plenty of that goes on.

Richard said:

Hi,

Just wondering if you got my email?

Richard said:

No, thats fine! I was just wondering because sometimes it may be counted as spam.

Nikki Block said:

Thank you very much Twerty!

KnowItSome said:

thanks for your note to 11wicki. I have a hunch that editor is very young. Did you get my note about toning down your messages? I am afraid you may have scared him.

KnowItSome said:

Hey, Twerty, do you by any chance speak three languages?

KnowItSome said:

It pays to be extra gentle with any newbies. Often they just don't know the rules. Thanks for anything you can do.......

KnowItSome said:

no spanish, then? and not getting ready for a big event soon?

Krystle said:

That makes sense, but there is an opinion buried in there, wrapped in all that aggression: whats wrong with you u dont have to wear designer clothes to be popuplar like everyone knows me in my school and loves me because i have compassion and care and help me siblings. I think it was a good idea to ask the contributor to tone down the vulgarity, but like I said, we typically don't roll back angry comments; only gibberish and direct, ungrounded attacks. In this case, she was very upset because apparently her contribution was erased, and though she didn't handle it as gracefully as she could have, it's still a valid concern to bring up on the discussion page. Another alternative is to ask the person to edit and reword the comment themselves, and let them know that you'd be happy to help address their concern, but it's difficult to understand it when it's written so angrily. Just some ideas! =)

Nicole Willson said:

Did you know that you can put a title tag on an article even if you don't know what the new title should be?

Just a friendly FYI :).

KnowItSome said:

No, of course you don't......good luck with the big day.

Katie R. said:

Grrrr, you beat me to that speedy page...we almost had an edit collision. ;)

Katie R. said:

It's happened so many times...some wikiHow users reach some amazing speeds when rolling back edits. Makes my head spin. =P

Katie R. said:

Yup! In fact, that's what happened with you. I clicked on "Edit This Page" and there sat the {{speedy}} on the top of the page. Wikis are magic...=)

Flickety said:

Hi & thanks for your message. This is not a change of category but a new category to be created. And I still think Krystle's suggestion works whether or not any other manufacturer exists. I'd suggest that there is nothing to stop a homemade version... WDYT?

Flickety said:

You'll be surprised how creative some users can be. :)

KnowItSome said:

Are you in any position to review that article and to recat it and to place the relateds? I tried to edit it but I gave up because since I did not know even which sport this was, I really had no idea how to make the instructions make any sense.

KnowItSome said:

I am sure you will do well with this. Maybe later you can help with a diving article, or something, if one comes up, if you know anything at all about that.

KnowItSome said:

Nice work Twerty.......

Looks really good. I knew I was out of my element when I read the part about landing on the nose. I thought I was editing a gymnastics article. You have done a nice job.

As for the high expectations, you do kind of remind me of someone I once knew......not too long ago. Someone very capable, and someone I have been missing.

KnowItSome said:

Right. Well, I did the category. You want me to show you how to do relateds?

KnowItSome said:

http://www.wikihow.com/Add-Related-wikiHows

KnowItSome said:

I got your message, Twerty, and I am so glad you have come.

KnowItSome said:

Oh, that happens. Close enough duplication for immediate deletion (word for word) do you think? Or is it just a merge candidate?

KnowItSome said:

Q and D, do you think?

KnowItSome said:

bedtime, I suppose.......good night.

KnowItSome said:

Yes, Twerty, that would be standard practice.

Callan said:

thanks

Richard said:

LOL yep, thats true!

Flickety said:

No worries - it has happened to all of us. Just a sign we're all doing a good job. We know it's not you. :)

Brandywine said:

No problem - it's almost as much fun as edit collisions. ;)

Richard said:

LOL we had another edit collision.

KnowItSome said:

You have said this:

"Hm, that just seems a little bit odd; I would think that the article should be left there to compare to the information"

I guess what you are telling me here is that you are unaware that all prior revisions remain available for viewing.

Mariah22 said:

i know i just was giving a summary of it

Katie R. said:

Grrrr. You beat me on the speedy again!

Must type faster...

Katie R. said:

I can actually get 112 wpm, but with only 92% accuracy. I'm also slightly OCD so I feel compelled to go back and fix my typos. =P

I will beat you next time! Lol. =)

Katie R. said:

Same here. I don't like that the typing tests that I take don't let me backspace. I have to type very carefully until the typo is out of my sight. =P

ashley said:

I'm sorry that I wrote an article of how to do homework in the morning, I thought it would help people.

ashley said:

ok, sorry.

Tomboyy said:

Hi twerty i was talking to you earlier i changed my name to tomboyy i was 64.203.167.187

1guitarhero2 said:

What article is the one where it is like almost completely the same?

Doug McDaniel said:

Well Twerty, I've been using the internet since 1973, before it was called the internet. More importantly, I've been raising children since 1984. To understand why this article exists, you must understand that there is a lot of abuse that happens under the guise of "spanking". We hope that this will promote tollerance and prevent abuse. It is not primarily intended to promote spanking for parents that would not otherwise spank their children, although we have recieved notes from people who have used the article with success, when they otherwise would not have spanked.

Thanks for your note.

Doug

Jonathan Thorne said:

Thanks for catching the date on that NFD for me.
ok, I changed my password! I promise ot god I did not do what you're talking about, bye.

ashley said:

what did I say? Oh I need to tell you somthign, at the bottom of the user page, contact pg. there is somewierd stuff, I meant to tell you about that. oh my gosh I'm so sorry I don't know how that happened, I did not do i have to go, bye ok, how do I do that?

ashley said:

ok, I'm back, I really do not know how that happened, I'm real sorry about it, but can you explain to me what it is?

ashley said:

ok, but I don't get on wiki how at school.

ashley said:

ok

Rob S said:

Hi Twerty. Just to keep you informed, that "Smoke Weed" article, while not universally illegal, still promotes recreational drug use, thus making it grounds for a speedy.

Thanks.

Popular4ever said:

hi twerty! watssup! :)

Rob S said:

Hahaha!

I crack up every time I find one of these. It's like a scavenger hunt or something—they just keep appearing.

ashley said:

Hi, How are you? I have an important question to ask oyu, let me know when you're ready.

ashley said:

Thank you, but I already have my answer!

ashley said:

what's your point?

ashley said:

Well, I'm sorry, I think I'm finished with wikihow. Thank's for your opinion, but I"m gone.

ashley said:

I am loiek other people, wikihow is screwed up and you don't have to block me for saying that because I'm gone.

ashley said:

I though you ment by the persn I am, but I'm still gone, bye.............how do you know my age?

ashley said:

ok........I'm really sorry I took my anger too far....I hope you forgive me...........I love wikihow and I'll stay..It was just some comments Sondra said that set me off.

ashley said:

Do you thingk the bad stuff I said will make me look less of a person?

ashley said:

ok, thanks..I'll try my best...Do you think people on wikihow will still come to me for help or do you think they'll treat me different and hting I'm a bad person?

ashley said:

ok.....thanks! :) your a good person..I sen Sondra an apology I don't know if she has read it yet.

ashley said:

Can I have wikihow templetes?

ashley said:

thanks! :)

ashley said:

so i can use anyone I want?

ashley said:

I mean the templetes like http://www.wikihow.com/User:Horses4Ever has.

ashley said:

Oh no..

ashley said:

Sorry, I meant http://www.wikihow.com/User:Misskatie

ashley said:

you have to scroll down to the bottom of the page.

ashley said:

got to go, bye!

ashley said:

how do you put them on your author page?

KnowItSome said:

Twerty, I have changed your speedy here to an NFD because it does not fit speedy policy:

http://www.wikihow.com/index.php?title=Hook-up-Your-Video-Ipod-to-Play-Through-Your-Television&oldid=624627

I used a reason we are currently discussing in the forums, which appears as if it will be voted in:

"This page is incomplete and has apparently been abandoned by its author"

Doug McDaniel said:

Hi Twerty, thanks for your note and thanks for taking another look at the article.

-Doug

Jack H said:

Twerty,

Many, many thanks for your fantastic efforts on RC.

Just wanted to give you a tip, which you can take or leave. Please only use Speedy delete very rarely. While everyone has different views on this, I think speedy is really for topics that are incredibly offensive and beyond any hope of saving. I saw you placed it on the DVD page, which I think I would have just done a normal NFD on. The page deserves deletion certainly, but it is best to plave pages like this in the 7 day NFD process to allow them a shot at redemption.

Again, thanks so much for all you are doing on RC. You are really helping wikiHow become a much better place.

Jack H said:

So I think you are asking if a good title, has bad content, should we delete it? Well, you can use the {{nfdinc}}in these cases potentially. The community is still trying to work out what "sub-stubs" might qualify for deletion under these rules. So I can't give you a solid answer on that one yet. :) Sorry.

BTW re"universally illegal" our standard for what is "universally illegal" is things that are illegal in almost every country on earth. THings like murder, stealing, etc. Things which are not illegal everywhere like copying DVDs generally don't qualify for this standard.

Thanks so much for taking the time to research how all this works so we can all collaborate on this better together.

KnowItSome said:

How are things?

Katie R. said:

"It's a natural sub-conscious response against people in your age group, because, well, they are infamous for their destructive behavior, (they are probably the most common vandals on wikiHow) bad grasp of the English language (heh), and bouts of anger and insults. " - Left on Ashley's talk page.
Ow! I take offense to that, being as I am in Ashley's age group...;]

KnowItSome said:

CAn you provide a rationale for your speedy tag here?

http://www.wikihow.com/Record-a-Dvd-While-Playing-It

Katie R. said:

Ahhh...

Sorry for jumping on you. =\

KnowItSome said:

Oh, I see......you were thinking of this as advertising, I guess. Yes, an article which was solely advertising, and placed by the advertiser, could go out right away as a speedy. I see this as a person recommending a product..which is just a little bit different....so that is why I personally would NFD it....but this is a close call. Thanks for getting back to me.

Falafel Wrap said:

Well, thats only if you're wearing an ugly pair old chap. Usually cops don't mind if you give them some eye-candy.

Connor Ness said:

Sorry twerty I'm just trying to help out.

Connor Ness said:

thanks for the help :).

Nicole Willson said:

Hi! A word of advice: when someone vandalizes an article, sending them the warning template will suffice. You don't need to editorialize about what the user should/n't do with their spare time.

Nicole Willson said:

lol... true but you don't want to give them more to work with than what they have already. And also you don't want someone going around whining "so-and-so NFD'd my article because they didn't like me." etc.

KnowItSome said:

Hi Twerty: whenever you copy and paste a message onto a talk page, or into an article, this will happen. I don't know why. But if you go through the message and insert a space in a few lines, that seems to get the whole text back in line.

Thanks for the question, Twerty. Always glad to help out.


YOu asked this:

Hello KnowItSome! I have a question on editting, and since you're probably the most experienced person that won't mind me bothering you with questions, here it is: When messages somehow get cut off go past the standard border ( the one that the words would normally just move down to the next line ) and evnetually off of the page, what causes this? Or more specifically, how can this be fixed? For

example, the bottom of this page has this problem.

Jack H said:

Thanks for helping wikiHow grow into something beautiful.



I've been doing a lot of RC patrolling tonight and I've seen many of your helpful edits all over the place. Thanks so much for taking the time to polish the pages you find so that other readers can enjoy them. It is greatly appreciated.

hi i am new. if you know stuff on spying can you please send it to me.thanks

76.177.8.110 said:

It can. I tried and I moved my pencil. THE TABLE WAS NOT SHAKEN.

Sondra C said:

Twerty, I do not think that you and I have met as of yet, although I have seen some of the very good contributions you have been doing on wikiHow. wikiHow thrives on caring and giving contributors as yourself. I am so pleased that I finally had a chance to greet you and welcome you.

I just read the message you posted on the discussion page of the article I was saving from deletion. I commend you for using the discussion page for the purpose it was intended for. Discussions about the article itself.

Your questions and thoughts were extremely well formed and written which meant you gave much thought to the article itself as well as how it might pertain to yet another article.

I responded on the discussion page directly, so as to link to, and respond to your questions.

It is a pleasure to meet you. If I can ever be of assistance, please just ask!.

http://www.wikihow.com/Discussion:Be-a-Gold-Digger

KnowItSome said:

Thanks, Twerty. I have looked into the matter and have determined that this article is a new one. A completely different article was deleted earlier. When we delete an NFD, we normally keep the discussion page on hand so that we can refer to what has happened and what the votes were, and why the NFD decision was made.

Someone created a new article under the same title (Cheat at Miniature Golf), and this automatically linked to the same discussion page, which does look very confusing. I have posted a note on the discussion page hoping that others will not be confused in the same way that you were. If you feel the new article needs to be deleted, you may certainly place an NFD.

24.20.203.245 said:

Well, Twerty, I don't want to split hairs. But my comment (that not everyone looks good in a sari) was no more irrelevant than the previous author's claim (that everyone looks good in a sari). Neither of these statements is directly relevant to the topic, which was how to wear a sari. Sorry.

I was just attempting to create balance between two differing viewpoints, rather than just editing out the viewpoint I didn't agree with. I hope you agree that's a far cry from "vandalism" or "spam." Maybe you would have done it differently but that is what makes the world interesting.

I'm not that attached to posting on wikiHow and will happily and voluntarily forgo any future contributions. IMHO the site would be better and more useful if you admin types backed off just a notch or two, so that well-meaning contributors weren't incredibly turned off by accusations of criminal behavior...but hey, what do I know? I'm just four little octets in a great big world.

Please look at the last message on ym talk page, it's very offensive, please block that person.

*drops jaw* You're too fast!

Thanks a bunch

ashley said:

Oh! I also see that user left the message on knowitsome talk page too. How long is that user blocked?

ashley said:

Thanks! I have to go take a shower now and then I'm going to watch ghost whisper at 8:00. Bye and goodnight! :)

never mind, I'm back, I have 10 more min.

Bye!

Destiny said:

i did not let her do that i don't tell her whant to do i wasn't not even there i was a home

Nicole Willson said:

Hi! Heal People Through the Power of Jesus Christ was an answer to a request. The person who wrote it was trying to help someone else. It wasn't someone just telling people to pray more. The way you wrote the speedy sounded a bit hostile and may put off that user from contributing to wikiHow further.

Also, it's not a speedy because it's not out and out vandalism, not a vanity page and doesn't seem to violate any policy guidelines. Also, it has the potential to be improved upon or merged with something else.

Nicole Willson said:

Also re: Do Hypnosis to Make People Do Stupid Things I would contact Tom Viren about why the article wasn't deleted, since he's the one who removed the NFD back in late August '06.

Nicole Willson said:

Well you can still NFD the article. I agree that it may not go anywhere, but the point is to let it stay there a week or so in the event that it can be fixed. But it's not a speedy and that has nothing to do with can-do optimism, but proper enforcement of wikiHow policy.

Maybe using the term "biting the newbies" was putting it too strongly, but we need new people here to answer requests and help the site grow. Maybe their contributions aren't perfect, but if people didn't contribute we'd have nothing to patrol. You have to remember that on the Internet it's easy to take things a variety of ways as people are faceless and voiceless here.

Nicole Willson said:

Biting newbies is a figure of speech. It's common in a lot of wikis, including Wikipedia. I'm sorry I offended you, I was just trying to provide some constructive criticism in order to help you (even though I can tell you don't see it that way). On a wiki, you have to work with a lot of different people who won't always agree so civility is important. And as someone whose cancer prevention article was NFD'd (but not deleted), I can say with experience that it's off-putting to a newbie to have something NFD'd or speedied.

And a lot of people have ade the mistake of mismarking articles as speedy. It's just something you learn after a while. Like I said, you could have NFD'd it, but speedy is usually reserved for things like adult content, articles that are downright illegal, personal attacks etc.

Jack H said:

Twerty,

I've noticed that you and Nicole seem to be having an animated discussion. It is always a shame when I see two good contributors here disagreeing. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

Flickety said:

Hey Twerty, I hate to see you leaving us? Is there something we can do? I have appreciated your efforts here and hope that you will reconsider and return to wikiHow.

Cheers, F

Hey, Twerty, hope my comments to you didn't have anything to do with your decision (?) to leave the wikiHow community.

I did think (and still believe) that your approach to telling people their contributions could be improved could use a little refinement. You were very blunt in telling me I was wrong, you were right, and if I didn't like it I should just go away because there was nothing I could do about it. I was totally turned off, and said I'd leave wikiHow voluntarily. I wondered then, and still wonder, how many other potentially valuable contributors had left the community because of your utterly forbidding attitude.

That said, I'm back. After some consideration, I think the wiki community is better with me than without me, even though I am imperfect, opinionated, and frequently wrong. The same is true of you, my friend. Please don't bail on us just because people said unkind things to you, about you, or about what you have contributed. Just keep an open mind, look for the good points in even the worst posts, and try to respect the person behind every contribution. Remember one of the primary values of any wiki is that everyone has something valuable to contribute!

I probably won't agree with every decision you make as an admin, but chances are excellent that overall, you make the wiki community a better, more readable resource. Hope to see you around.

We were just talking about that in the forums......we have quite a few committed patrollers. So hopefully you will nestle into one of the many other interesting areas and stay awhile!

I can now see why what I have said above does not actually make sense. I am glad you stuck your head in for just a sec, but no one can really expect anyone to want to stay.

Try the blue food coloring instead of the green on you green beer. I think you might need a little less and it makes the article more interesting for some readers.
