Here are some tips to help you get started:
- Read the Tutorial, and feel free to experiment in the Sandbox.
- Eventually, you might want to read the Manual of Style and Policies and Guidelines.
- If you need help, post a question at the Help Desk or ask me on my talk page.
- To sign your name on a talk page, please finish your comments with ~~~~ (four tildes). The wiki will insert a link to your userpage and the timestamp.
- Not every subject needs its own page. Sometimes it is wiser to deal with certain subjects together on one page. See Wikipedia:Merge and Wikipedia:Redirect for some background. You may want to review Avoiding common mistakes to get started quickly.
- Explore, be bold in editing pages, and, most importantly, have fun!
PS About the external links: I do not doubt your motives, but placing links everywhere is considered spamming. Perhaps the other links should also be removed. Wikipedia has too many external links. Ideally external links should only be used as references or if they are completely crucial to a topic (e.g. AMA website on the page about the American Medical Association). Advice boards, support groups etc. come thirteen in a dozen, and should rely on Google, not Wikipedia, for their traffic. JFW | T@lk
- Thanks for your message, and I'm glad you understand my point-of-view. I don't think placing the Anxiety Zone URL on two pages is a bad idea, but I have a habit of automatically reverting brand new users whose sole aim of joining Wikipedia seems to have been to increase site traffic. Trust me, it happens very often.
- I think Wikipedia is even better served if you manage to include un-biased and well referenced information to the articles you know things about. After all, as an encyclopedia the project aims to provide a good general outlook on a most diverse set of topics. I could spend all my time adding references to medical journals, but the project is better served if I quote the most relevant points from these articles, so the reader understands the bigger picture.
- Enjoy your work on Wikipedia. JFW | T@lk 00:33, 30 May 2005 (UTC)
