Thanks for correcting my typo[edit]

U:TTPORTING has over 1,500 page views and you were the first to spot my typo. Welcome to Appropedia. I deleted the other pages you marked with {{Delete}}. Let me know if you have any questions about the site, or you can ask on Appropedia:Village pump. --Teratornis 20:18, 25 August 2012 (PDT)

Thanks a lot. I'm still experimenting, but it seems like you have a community with a great deal of potential, some of it already being realized. As a veteran of template porting internally among Wikipedia languages, I found your discussion of the problem scope quite illuminating, and I hope to be able to help a bit once I become more familiar with Appropedia. — 03:28, 26 August 2012 (PDT)
You might like to review the results of User:Chriswaterguy's attempt at an automatic template import; see User talk:Teratornis#Importing templates with dependencies. I am generally not comfortable with automatic methods of template importing, due to the need to customize a large fraction of templates from Wikipedia to make them work here. I'm glad you found something useful in U:TTPORTING - I wouldn't at all consider myself an expert at template porting/transwikiing because I still get frequently stuck somewhere. It would be nice to have a template debugger; templates in MediaWiki can become as complex as computer programs but we don't have the wikipedia:Integrated development environment tools that modern programmers take for granted. --Teratornis 11:41, 26 August 2012 (PDT)



Hi Objectivesea,

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

Check your preferences. It's a good idea to verify your email address and turn on email notification - then you'll be notified when you get a message on your talk page, or when 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:Objectivesea).

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. If you just want to know how things work here, check out Appropedia:Policies and Appropedia:FAQ. We're a relaxed and friendly bunch though, and you can also just pick things up as you go.

Glad to have you here!


I see you're a wiki veteran, but I thought I'd give you our standard welcome anyway. Good to have you here.

A graphic designer - very cool. If you're interested in using those skills to help Appropedia, let me know. --Chriswaterguy 18:42, 6 September 2012 (PDT)

Thanks, Professor Grafman. I haven't checked in at this site for a while, but I'm glad I could help a bit.
