It's considered impolite to delete messages from your talkpage without archiving. If you need any help with that image you were trying to display, let me know. You may have to upload the photo first.                               Puppy's talk page06:35 20 Jul

edit Sorry...

I have a lot of reading to do before I know what is and is not acceptable to do on this site. I now know not to delete anything before archiving it (thanks, Puppy on the Radio! (Is there a way I can tag you or something so you'll know that I've mentioned you in a post/comment?)). I'm a quick learner, however, so hopefully it won't be too long until I'm no longer such a noob. I will also make sure to ask around so as not to commit any serious blunders and get killed off before I've really had a chance to become part of this community.

Thanks for being patient!

No probs. As for making sure I notice the message, most regulars keep a watch on pages that they have edited in the past. (See the Special:Watchlist at the top of the page.) If you really need to get their attention quickly you can drop a note on their talk page, like I did here, as it gives you that lovely orange banner thingy. And welcome, again!                               Puppy's talk page06:56 20 Jul

Actually, I was trying to post that pic on my main page, like you have yours. (Your pic is gorgeous, btw! Purple is my favorite color.) If you could help me with that, it would be much appreciated.

--EJ Barrett (talk) 07:29, July 20, 2012 (UTC)

Done! There's a good guide on using images at Wikipedia:Extended image syntax. There's also a guide on uploading files at Uncyclopedia:How to upload a file that I created a few years back.                               Puppy's talk page07:52 20 Jul


edit I responded to your thread post

...Yeah. Anyway, welcome! ~[ths] UotM Eclipse Craproll MotM BePrepared 18:03, 07/20/2012

edit Please put new messages on the bottom

Thanks. Also, if you would like a custom sig like mine, or other people's, just ask!

It's part of the culture here. We all have tattooed backsides.                               Puppy's talk page10:21 21 Jul

edit Did Puppy on the Radio get banned, or...?

Just wondering, because when I look at my talk page, it says "73% complete" or some such, and when I went to his(?) page, it seems that they think he's a sock puppet (I know what that means, I looked it up. Yay me!) Just curious about what his/her status is.

--EJ Barrett (talk) 02:19, July 24, 2012 (UTC)

Nah - I'm still here. I had been banned a little earlier for sockpuppetry, so I just changed my userpage as a bit of an inside joke for people that were around at the time. And my signature has a tendency to change whenever I get bored. This signature is actually my name as displayed on my twitter account. I'll probably change it again within the next week or two. I get bored easy.                               Puppy's talk page02:25 24 Jul

edit I am fashioning your signature

One question, would you like sigexpand? (the stuff that makes hidden content appear when you hover over something, just hover your mouse over my sig for example) A (Ruins) 16:46, 27 July 2012

No, just a normal sig, thanks. :-) And thank you for redoing my signature!

--EJ Barrett (talk) 04:37, July 30, 2012 (UTC)

{{Tooltip}}? Hover over this bold text to see what I mean.                               Puppy's talk page04:45 30 Jul

edit Can noobs edit articles?

I got a notification for an article I'm following that was recently edited, and the edits (while accurate to the television show the article is about),in my view do not reflect the standards of this site. (I would link the article, but I don't know how to do links yet. It's the one about NCIS,, and the edits are in the sections about Kate Todd and Ari Haswari.) Thanks! --EJ Barrett (talk) 14:13, September 20, 2012 (UTC)

Yes they can, though if the edit isn't good or irrelevant to the subject - it will be reverted. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 14:37, September 20, 2012 (UTC)
This one I presume? --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 14:38, September 20, 2012 (UTC)
One other thing. Can you keep your sig close to the rest of your message, instead of adding an extra line of space?? Check this sig for example. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 14:42, September 20, 2012 (UTC) You are doing it correctly now. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 14:43, September 20, 2012 (UTC)

Yes, that would be the one. I was thinking of changing it back to the way it was originally (reverting, it's called?) I suppose I can just c&p from the notification I got. And thanks for showing me how to do my sig on here. I'm just used to doing it the other way on other forums I'm on. :-) EJ Barrett (talk) 14:52, September 20, 2012 (UTC)

Also, now that I have your attention, how can I change the "talk" link after my name to something cool like your "orate"? Edit: And make a new, um, what do you call it, you know, having it be the sixth conversation instead of 5.whatever? Am I making sense? EJ Barrett (talk) 14:56, September 20, 2012 (UTC)

User:EJ_Barrett/sig. Go to 'edit' and you will see the code. Replace 'talk' with what ever you want there instead. Regards the article, you can make a copy to your own pages and work on it there. Then once it is finished you can ask the rest of the community to vote on your article replacing the one already there. This was done recently with Astrology. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 18:40, September 20, 2012 (UTC)
In comparison, my signature is here: User:Romartus/sig --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 18:42, September 20, 2012 (UTC)
