Hi Diane, great to have you here. Hope you have a good experience here, and have a chance to share your knowledge here as well.

Let me know if you have questions, or need help.

Where are you currently? --Chriswaterguy 01:55, 20 March 2012 (PDT)

Welcome![edit source]


Hi Diane Emerson,

Welcome to the Appropedia wiki. Please make yourself at home! If you need a general wiki-tutorial, see the main help page (or the more in-depth one on WikiEducator).

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. You may want to upload a photo or information about yourself to your userpage (which is at User:Diane Emerson).

If you have a particular interest or project in mind, go ahead and start it! If you have questions or suggestions, the best place to leave them is at our community discussion page, which we call the Village pump - you should get a fast response. Or, feel free to leave me a note on my talk page if you have further questions, need help finding your way around, have a cool idea for a project, or just want to chat.

Glad to have you here!


Hi Chris. I am glad to be here, and am currently in Portland, Oregon, enjoying the permies here immensely.

User page[edit source]

Oregon is a beautiful part of the world. Love that you're giving free hugs, too. Urban farming, time banks, compassionate communication... - love everything you're into, actually.

Re what to put on your user page, maybe you're thinking of MediaWiki:Create a userpage. Let me know if that's unclear.

Also, in the toolbar when you're editing, there's a squiggle in the middle that represents a signature (next to the crossed-out W). Press that and it adds a --~~~~, which turns into a signature with date when you save. Handy for talk pages. It looks a bit geeky at first, but it's not so bad, and you're obviously getting the hang of it, which is great. --Chriswaterguy 22:00, 21 March 2012 (PDT)
