Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. Uh, the Alan Cox? :-) Evercat 23:30, 14 Mar 2004 (UTC)

Apparently so... welcome! silsor 00:44, Mar 15, 2004 (UTC)

Welcome. Have you run into the Welsh-language Wikipedia? Marnanel 00:56, 15 Mar 2004 (UTC)

Wow, a celebrity, welcome :) Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions. And don't spend too much time here, we need you to keep linux in shape. Dori | Talk 01:40, Mar 15, 2004 (UTC)

Given no-one's mentioned it yet (your slipping, lads!), the one useful and non-intuative feature on here is signing. Appending three tilde (~) characters will be replaced with your username, and using four will also add a timestamp. This is particuallry heavily used on the talk pages, where signing comments is the norm. Syntax 02:53, 15 Mar 2004 (UTC)

Image on Alan Cox Page[edit]

If this is the real Alan, maybe you can provide some insight into the image discussion on Talk:Alan Cox.

Thanks!

Just spotted your edit on Pimlico tube station... Norwood Junction has an 'r' in it! Willkm 21:02, 2 February 2006 (UTC)

True - but its still non encyclopædic

Why not just redirect to your wikipedia article?[edit]

If all you have in your User page is a link to your wikipedia article, why not just redirect? Just wondered. cow_2001 07:10, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

Bernhard Rosenkraenzer[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Bernhard Rosenkraenzer requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article appears to be about a real person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable. If this is the first page that you have created, then you should read the guide to writing your first article.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Mdsummermsw (talk) 18:32, 29 January 2008 (UTC)
