Hi XitGotTheBetterOfMeX,

Thanks for joining our community.

Since you're new, feel free to take the wikiHow tour to learn about how things work around here.

Please leave a message on my talk page if you have any questions about contributing to wikiHow!

Hey Liz,

Thanks so much for helping out with patrolling! I know it can be a bit tricky at first, but don't worry - it's normal to get feedback, ask questions, and skip the edits you're not positive about. Do you have any questions so far?

I did want to ask why you undid this edit here? Technist's changes seemed helpful to me. What were your concerns about them?

I hope you stick around and keep enjoying editing! There are tons of ways to lend a hand, if you're interested. Have you checked out the other Community Dashboard tools yet?

At 18:01, Oct 26, 2015

AnnaAnna said:

Ah got it, okay! Thanks for clarifying -- if you've patrolled an edit you didn't mean to, you can always go back and find it in your Logs, or if you've reverted one, you can find it in your Contribution list. I know that can get tricky, so just let me know if you think you've made an accidental patrol or revert, and I can help sort it out. In general, if you're not sure, just skip the edit, and you'll be smooth sailing :)

Cheers for chipping in around here! Have you edited on wikis in the past?

Hey there Liz! Awesome copyedit on Rite a Poim About Deathe. Thanks so much for doing that :) Have you tried out the Copyedit Greenhouse yet?

Nice rewrite on Rite a Poim About Deathe. I changed the title, too. Still needs a lot of work, but boy was it atrocious before!

At 20:06, Oct 26, 2015

AnnaAnna said:

Oh gotya - well, I'm glad you decided to join now that you're old enough. Welcome to the community!

AdelaideAdelaide said:

Hey, awesome expansion on Write a Poem About Death! How accurate is this article?

At 23:53, Oct 26, 2015

AnnaAnna said:

Great question! You’re welcome to use outside sources, as long as you put them in your own words and reference them. Basically, it's good to use references for information, but you'd want to synthesize the info from multiple reputable sources and use them more as references than as direct sources for advice, idea for idea. Does that make sense?

At 00:14, Oct 27, 2015

AnnaAnna said:

Sure, no prob Liz - thanks for asking!

Thanks for your edits on Give Signs to Your Crush You Like Him. Cheers for undoing that tip - sometimes some more obvious ones get through! Are you patrolling on the mobile site? How do you like it?

At 21:17, Nov 04, 2015

AnnaAnna said:

No worries at all for the delay - life is busy busy, I'm sure! Cool - if you do decide to patrol more from your computer, you'll find there are lots more options for improving articles on the desktop site (like, the option to Quick Edit an article and improve upon the edit, rather than just approving or undoing it). If you have any questions about them, let me know - happy to help as you go :)

Heya,

Thanks for your edits on Make Money Selling Books at Half Price Books. I wanted to check on your rollback here - it looks like Donagan's edits cleaned up the writing and helped get the article into our format? Did you spot issues with the changes that made you undo them? Let me know your thoughts - thanks!

AnnaAnna said:

Oh ok, thanks for the reply. If you realize you've pressed the wrong button after a patrol, your best bet is to hit the back button in the tool (not your browser but the tool back arrow) and open up the article or its history page to fix it. You can also use your contribution list to find accidental rollbacks and your patrol log to find any accidental patrols and fix them from there. It's important to follow up on any mistakes like that to make sure they get undone. But in future if you can't find the issue, feel free to reach out so I can help :)

At 20:58, Nov 28, 2015

AnnaAnna said:

Yep, I'm not sure on those messages either - looks like they might be a bit confused about how talk pages work. You can ask them, if you'd like, or you can just leave it be - either way probably okay :)

Thanks for helping to clean up the vandalism going around today!

At 21:01, Nov 28, 2015

AnnaAnna said:

No worries - I already blocked the account, so hopefully that'll give some rest for now. I'm going offline for now, so if you see more repeat vandalism you can definitely report it on the Admin Notice Board - but hopefully he'll go find some other community to bug! :)

Congrats on starting your first wikiHow article!

I just wanted to touch base in case you were wondering what happens next :) All new articles go through a quality review process to ensure they follow our community guidelines. If your article meets those guidelines, you'll get a note letting you know that it's been promoted.

In the meantime you can continue editing to improve your article, or try visiting our Community Dashboard for other ways to help. You might get a kick out of flipping through the Topic Greenhouse to find articles in your area of expertise so you can add your knowledge there, too!

XitGotTheBetterOfMeX, strange name but this is what I do I click on the word and read the spelling in the definition and both spellings default to Decor as the spelling so when or the article actually mentions French or France I will leave the accent mark other wise it is written in English and I will use the default spelling as used in the dictionary and reference books I’m using. I have a MacBook Pro 4.1 it uses spell check so you can hold down the control key and select Look up and you are given the definition with spelling or I copy the word and paste it into my Reference Books where both spellings default to Decor my Reference Books list as this All Dictionary Thesaurus Apple Wikipedia I also copy and paste names that I don’t know that are suppose to be titles or business in to my web browser using Bing or Google I prefer Bing so now do you understand that Decor is the default spelling and when used in a document written in English without mentioning France the accent mark is not necessary it is written in English I have OCD and am very Thorough when checking Facts sorry if this is causing you trouble by my way is factually correct.

Thanks for your edits on Discussion:Date a Piano. Your comment here made me giggle! If it was written from a relationship perspective, I'm glad it was deleted!

Hi there,

I'm running an official wikiHow editor survey and I was wondering if you could help out by participating? This survey should take you about 5 minutes to complete. You can learn more about this research here. I would really appreciate it if you could take it within a week. We have a wonderful community here and I'm eager to get a better idea of who contributes and why :)

http://qeasttrial.co1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_e5MtnDeIIrsUP7T

Let me know if you have any questions at all about this!

Oops! It looks like you accidentally added a less helpful tip while working on Tips Patrol just now. That's okay though; you're still learning, and it can be tricky at first!

If you haven't already, read our article on How to Use the Tips Patrol Tool on wikiHow and give it another try! If you have any questions about adding tips, don't hesitate to reach out to the Help Team. And remember, if you're not sure what to do, just press the "skip" button and you'll do fine :)

Hey! Welcome back! How did the exams go?

For the kudos, you get messages about fan mail on any article you've ever edited - including rollbacks and things like that. So there may well be quite a few there! But if you want to remove any that you don't feel are relevant, you can just edit and remove them, no worries :)
