Hi Pfctdayelise,

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:Pfctdayelise).

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!

I'm glad you succumbed!

I was thinking - I've met you in Taiwan and Egypt, but never in Australia. But in late 2009 before or after ConFest, or whenever I get back I to get to Australia, I will definitely get to Melbourne. (I know Sydneysiders don't usually say this, but I love Melbourne.)

Looking at your user page:

  • Re menstrual cups - have you seen Wikipedia:Papyrus sanitary pad? (Not the oddest article I've started.) I'll probably import it here with a bunch of other stuff, to work on from a different angle.
  • Xubuntu: you can [install LXDE with Ubuntu] - it is really nice code (and I believe in lean code), and the way it sits comfortably with existing distros is impressive. I'd strongly suggest trying it out - I'm now in touch with the LXDE team, and they are connected in with ICT4D efforts, and efforts to get manufacturers installing Linux.
  • Cycling - would love to do that, and will when I'm in a country with sane roads. I want to see analyses of the net impact of cycling from economic and quality of life perspectives, individually and on a societal level. Need to get economic people enthused about Appropedia.
  • Bokashi bins sound awesome! I dented that page. --Chriswaterguy 03:10, 8 December 2008 (UTC)
