Welcome, Stef![edit source]

Good design for the Arm Lamp, and thanks for contributing it at Appropedia! I hope we see more of you! --CurtB 09:34, 3 December 2006 (PST)

thank you

I am working on a construction manual


Sounds great, I look forward to it! Here are a couple of suggestions:
  1. Use the "Show preview" button at the bottom of the edit page. It saves you time (fewer clicks) by showing you the results of your work, but also leaving the edit window open. It also reduces the chances of having "edit collisions", so it's a useful approach.
  2. You can sign your name using 4 ~'s (also on the edit toolbar, 2nd from the right). It will leave a signature and a timestamp like my signature below. (And if you don't want the timestamp, just use 3 ~'s.) This is a good way to sign your name on Talk pages, so that others can follow the link to your user page.
Glad to have you on board! --CurtB 17:07, 3 December 2006 (PST)

Thank you

This lamp is very simple to make with simple tools

But I think this manual is to big, in the future I will try to compress the drawings more. so there is more information on one paper.

I have to make some drawings to explain the benefits of this lamp system.

I know there are some assemble drawings for the lamp base missing, I will make this one this weekend.

My English is not good enough to put assemble text

Hello! I am a member of the studentworkforce, which tries to help reinder at demotech. I am here to port content from the demotech homepage to appropedia. Did you see that demotech has its own category? see: Category:Demotech

If you want you can add yourself to the category. To do so, you have to add [[Category:Demotech]] at the bottom of your userpage.

Interesting work and photo sizing[edit source]

Hi Stef,

Very interesting work. I look forward to seeing more. Please feel free to ask question if you need help. In addition feel free to try asking in English or Dutch, as there are other people on Appropedia from the Netherlands.

Please see Talk:3th world arm lamp, where I have made some examples of photo sizing.

Thank you, --Lonny 09:34, 19 December 2006 (PST)

Response to your comments at User_talk:, which I think were for me at User_talk:Lonny[edit source]

Hi Stef,

I added {{copyedit}} to your pages. This adds your pages to articles asking spelling and grammar review so that others may help. I made some changes to your Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamps page. See the part Benefits of tube lamps in PET bottles for how to use the * for lists, and see Remove labels and bottle top for an attempt at using tables. Thank you for your very interesting work. I look forward to building one of these.

--Lonny 17:19, 21 December 2006 (PST)

Just for the record - note that Category:Articles asking spelling and grammar review has been moved to Category:Articles in need of copyediting. --Chriswaterguy 03:51, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

Thank you, Lonny

I have no text for the Pet bottle page and arm lamp page so feel free to edit text. I will check often the pages if the changes are going in the right direction. I hope the drawings are clear, if there is something not clear, please let me now ?? If you have questions, please let me know ??

My skypename is "WorldArmLamp" for everyone who want to speak with me ?

I am from the Netherlands,
