Hello, I'm still new, happy to talk anytime to discuss something.
- Nancy, welcome to the wiki. You probably will want to put your name on your User page -- that's the best place to put identification and contact information. Your talk page is for, well, talking -- discussions among people, rather than presenting information. The standard way to respond is to indent your response below the question or statement you are responding to.
- And I know that you're just familiarizing yourself with the wiki, but here's a hint about the link you put on your home page: links within the wiki should use wikilinks. I would format the link you put there as [[Special:Categories|Special Categories]], which would then appear as Special Categories. We don't use external links (links beginning with "http:") in the wiki when we are linking to a wiki page. In the wikilink (enclosed in double brackets), you can put the link at the front, then a pipe character, then the text you want to appear on the page. -- Aebrown 05:45, 30 November 2011 (UTC)
- Alan, thank you for the information, yes, I'm still learning how to navigate here. Thank you very much.

- You're welcome. I noticed that on your response, you used spaces to indent your response. Note that most spaces get turned into one space, and that a space at the beginning of a line has a special meaning that causes the following text to be formatted in a box and ignore formatting (similar to the HTML <pre> tag). Instead, discussion responses should generally be indented by using increasing numbers of colons at the beginning of paragraphs. So I formatted your response with 2 colons, and my response to you starts with 3 colons. -- Aebrown 15:41, 9 December 2011 (UTC)
- So, then each preceding comment add another colon? as long as it's regarding the same subject, is that correct? Also, I think it should be added to the guidelines page, it doesn't say that we should indent by placing colons unless I missed it. Thank you. --Nancy 02:24, 19 December 2011 (UTC)
