My Previous User Edit

Sure, go ahead and delete the user netmadman54@comcast.net. I will not be using it any more. About that image I uploaded. Oops, sorry. My bad. Guess you can trash it too if you must. --Madman 00:30, 1 April 2006 (UTC)

Alright, I'll get on that. Don't worry about the image and article; everyone here learned as they went and we all made mistakes. We still do, of course. :) For the record, though, you can still use an unrelated image if you host it from another site, such as Photobucket or Imageshack, so long as it is only used on your user page. :) --From Andoria with Love 00:35, 1 April 2006 (UTC)

Moved from previous user talk pageEdit

Getting Started Edit

It's going to take some practice for me to learn wiki text and how to edit an article. Till then, I have a couple of questions:

1. Is there a template that can be easily used to help me start a user page? Until I get more adept at this, it would be nice to at least have a standard looking user page. I am checking out the tutorials, as I find time. But this would really help.

2. How do I get set up to just be known as my nickname, and not have my whole email address at the top of my user page?

Hi Madman,
  1. There really aren't any templates or "standard" guidelines for a user page; you can choose to reveal as much or as little info about yourself as you'd like. If you're looking for ideas, I'd suggest visiting the user pages of some of our more frequent contributors; there are some creative ones out there.
  2. Unfortunately, you cannot change your login name at will, just the display name inserted when you sign talk pages with tildes. You'd need to create a new account to remove the e-mail address.
Welcome again! I look forward to working with you. If you have any other questions, feel free to contact any of your fellow archivists; we're all happy to help! -- SmokeDetector47( TALK ) 07:56, 31 March 2006 (UTC)
