Hi, thanks for welcoming users. When I first started doing this, a year ago, it was suggested to me that I not welcome users simply upon account creation, but on first edit, and this is what a number of experienced Wikiversity users do. I can think of quite a few reasons for this, but what do you think? See also Wikiversity talk:Welcoming committee. --Abd 12:49, 2 June 2011 (UTC)
Jacob Frank. I'd like to be your mascot and welcome you to Wikiversity. Even though I was a plain and untutored man back in 18th-century Europe, that still didn't stop me from contributing my ideas to the world. Neither should it stop you. As a religious leader who developed the doctrine of "purification through transgression," my advice to you is to be bold and to ignore all rules—yes, these are two of Wikiversity's official policies! Happy editing.
I am glad to have seen that there is another active wikiversitan in the UK. I have been trying to get otherwikipedian to engage with wikiversity particularly as regards developing learning resources for the Wikimedia UK GLAM initiative (See GLAMcamp London). Would you ne at all interested in this?Leutha 17:40, 3 July 2011 (UTC)
Minor bug in Template:=
When you added documentation to the Template:=, it ended up adding an extra space to the output, so that "=" passed in a URL from Template:UPC ended up splitting the URL. Please watch when adding noincluded information that you don't add whitespace this way. But still, thanks for upgrading the templates! Wnt 17:55, 5 December 2011 (UTC)
Star Stuff from a Newbie
- You greeted me shortly after I started contributing to the Wikiversity. Thank you for your support. I noticed that you have an empty section titled "Star Stuff"! I have been working on a large lesson plan for folding and constructing a variety of "starry" ornaments and mathematical models. I hope you can enjoy it!
- However, I am not yet very good at maintaining Wikiversity pages, so I have a problem I could use your help with. I have created a page titled "RCB_DanceWithTheStars". This page is OBSOLETE, incomplete, and with several serious mistakes. Also, my wife fears that a title like that would attract viewers interested in choreography, instead of those interested in paper crafts. Would you please delete it for me?
- I tried to replace the above named file with another file, whose INTENDED title was
supposed to be "RCB_FoldingWithTheStars". But, I inadvertantly called it "RCB_DancingWithTheStars", by mistake. Can you also please rename this file with the title "RCB_FoldingWithTheStars", as I really intended?
- Yes, the most recent file still contains mistakes and missing content, but I think I will be able to remove these from small sections more easily than I could revise the entire work. Your advice will be most welcome.
- Oh, yes. I have found a quick course on setting up one's User page from User:planotse,
and I'm wondering if computer programming skills can be adapted to the "Wikiversity: the Movie" project. I accept encourgement, if you think any is due.
