- No. You didn't create that material. You can't release that work under the Creative Commons license! --HappyCamper 19:06, 1 December 2011 (UTC)
Now that you mention it.... what is the difference between wikibooks and this, I mean i found tutorials in wikibooks, shouldn't they be here?
I apologize for any grammar mistakes.. also..

- Well I think I know the difference between wikibooks and wikiversity but I know plenty of wikibook articles that should be here instead of there... Can I massive transfer the articles?! lol jk. --Sistemx 19:24, 1 December 2011 (UTC)
- for example there are tutorials in wikibooks about rubik's cube. (there are also at wikipedia!) PD: Yes I like rubik's cube!! (I olny know 3x3x3 :/ but im learning...) --Sistemx 19:29, 1 December 2011 (UTC)
Thanks!, is still got some doubts.... Especifically, What should I submitt here that I shouldn't submitt in wikibooks? and vice-versa.
Thank you, Happy Camper, for your greetings! I think I am one of those "incremental" page editors. Ususally, I start finding my typos seconds after pushhing the "save page" button. (I have lost several hours of work before I learned how to navigate back from the "preview" screen.) Ray Calvin Baker 00:23, 29 November 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the tip on using the "watch this page" button. I'm sure that that feature will help me a lot to find other contributers for articles of mutual interest.
I noticed that you have gotten a note from another Rubik's Cube fan. I'd like to say "hello!". How should one (I, me) go about consolidating material on a given topic?
I'm also exploring the dialects of the "BASIC" language family. There seems to be a fair-sized community for this topic, also. I found the "QB64" site on Wikipedia, and am delighted with the compiler I downloaded.
In all of my years of computer programming, what I have missed most is helpful tips from others who were just too shy to mention something. What is "obvious" to you may easily be something I have not even heard of yet. "Be BOLD!"

You asked me if the book on Rubik's Cube is complete. Yes, at least ninety-five per cent complete. It contains text diagrams to help explain the notation I created.
An attentive, industrious reader should be able to solve a standard Cube by using the material presented. I wrote the material for upper primary/middle school level students. Chapter Ten is a brief summary of the methods I use myself. Using the "cheat sheet" from this chapter, I can usually solve a scrambled Cube in less than ten minutes (certainly no world speed record!). I need to use the methods I describe to find how to solve a sub-group which is not visible on a standard Cube (This will be Chapter Eleven). Chapter Twelve is intended as a place for the reader to include his/her own "improvements" on my crude methods.
I intend to make a complete revision of the work ASAP. Obviously, some of the techniques I used did not fare well when "Wikimedia-fied". My diagrams were especially sensitive to misinterpretation by the upload processes I used. Ray Calvin Baker 23:37, 1 December 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the W/B :)[edit source]
I'm looking around, and most of the names I don't recognize -- but it's good to be back, and I thank you for the re-welcome. Historybuff 07:25, 5 December 2011 (UTC)
Did I do this correctly?[edit source]
I do not know where to go or who I should ask for help. Since you're a custodian, I though that maybe you could help me. I created Topic:Comics Code Authority and I am not sure if I did correctly. I am also not sure what pages are the most important to read for new editors. Joe Chill 18:35, 11 December 2011 (UTC)
- Thanks for the help. I appreciate it. Joe Chill 21:20, 11 December 2011 (UTC)
Re: Welcome[edit source]
Thanks for the welcoming message. I hope I have enough time to actually develop something. See you around! Fabianhjr 15:17, 20 December 2011 (UTC)
Deletion of website[edit source]
Noticed you deleted this page (which I totally support), should I go ahead and delete the RfD discussion I had started earlier today? If you haven't seen it and are willing to act unilaterally, there are like 4 other similarly useless and spammy pages promoting the same website, all noted there on the RfD.

Wikiversity vs. Wikipedia[edit source]
I read the FAQ, but I'm still a bit confused, what is the difference between a Wikiversity and a Wikipedia page, at least for the humanities? Wikipedia can explain a topic pretty well, and is easy to learn from, how should Wikiversity differ? I started writing ufology but it kept seeming like I'm just writing a Wikipedia page that probably has already been written. Btw, I just found out there is already a page @ talk:UFO research, what should I do about that since I already started writing not knowing there was a similar (but misnamed?) page?

licensing issue, help[edit source]
hi HappyCamper, could you please take a look at the licensing issue at User_talk:Egm4313.s12, and let me know the fact about the dual licensing. below is the template that i have been using for several years:
|Multi-licensed with any Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike License|
|I agree to multi-license my text and image contributions, unless otherwise stated, under Wikipedia's copyright terms and the Creative Commons license Attribution Share-Alike version 3.0 and the Creative Commons license Attribution Non-Commercial Share-Alike version 3.0. Please be aware that other contributors might not do the same, so if you want to use my contributions under the Creative Commons terms, please check the CC dual-license and Multi-licensing guides.|
which was based on the template MultiLicenseWithCC-BySA-Any.
then a bot changed my licensing template to the template below:
|This item is available under multiple licenses. When using it, you can choose which of the following licenses to use. Please make sure you respect the license terms of the license you choose, including any requirements and restrictions (such as attribution requirements and restrictions on commercial use).|

when i began to use the bot's template, the licensing issue came up as documented in User_talk:Egm4313.s12.
thanks. Egm6322.s12 15:58, 13 January 2012 (UTC)
Hey dude most of the information I put on all those page I made were from what we are learning in school.
Hi there[edit source]
... and thanks for the welcome. I want to get started by using a subpage to my user page for an e-learning course first: it'll be a way to teach a group of postgraduate researchers the wiki way and who knows, perhaps some of them find their way back here. Cheers from Berlin --MSB 21:23, 28 January 2012 (UTC)
Hello HappyCamper, I've been a probationary custodian for a while now. Is it necessary or appropriate to request full custodianship? My mentor, Draicone, hasn't been active for a couple of months. He told me to consider choosing a new mentor. What would you advise? Kind regards, Mathonius (talk) 19:06, 6 April 2012 (UTC)
Hi from Miquaz[edit source]
Hello happy camper!! Thanks for the help!! I like exclamation marks!! Um, can you help me find some computer science courses and some people who are interested in computer science? I want to know how to discuss computer science with them! You tell me on my [talk page]. If the link doesn't work just search User: Miquaz. Thanks!! See you around!!
My name is Druabb, I need help. I want to be a Custodian for Wikiversity and I need a mentor. HappyCamper, can you please answer the following questions and record the answers on my page. Example: 1. Go to Wikiversity Something like that.

Request permission to create my user page[edit source]
Hi! My name is Jonathan Holland. I edit Wikipedia anonymously under a different username, but would like to participate in Wikiversity under the username "Maknongan". Somewhat unfortunately, I seem to be unable to create my user page to offer more information about myself. Is there any possibility that you could help with this? Thanks, Jonathan Holland aka Maknongan (discuss • contribs) 13:14, 3 June 2018 (UTC)
