Check your preferences and be sure you verify your email address and turn on email notification if you'd like it -- you can find out when your talk page, or any page on your watchlist, is modified. This week you should submit some information (I like your current placeholder for the criteria) about yourself to your userpage and upload a photo as well.
Feel free to leave me a note on my talk page if you have further questions, need help finding your way around or on your project. Check out some of the other Engr305 projects. If you want to try different types of mediawiki formating, feel free to muck around in the 305 sandbox. Most importantly remember to be BOLD in your edits to pages. Others will come along and help out.
Good luck on your project, --Lonny
