Hi. Please note that I have nominated James Oppenheim for deletion. ~ MosheZadka (Talk) 30 June 2005 15:30 (UTC)

Better in the Wikipaedia?[edit]

Perhaps it's in the wrong Wiki? Is the content wrong? Rather than delete, and go back to no information on the man (which was the situation up till yesterday from the link from his quote under "Happiness"), can't it be corrected or improved and/or moved to Wikipaedia? [Added by]

Sure it can be moved to wikipedia. You can even do that yourself -- everyone is an editor in wikipedia, as well as in wikiquote. If you wish to create an article on James in WP, and copy'n'paste an article, not only do I encourage it but I am (literally!) powerless to stop it :) ~ MosheZadka (Talk) 1 July 2005 15:20 (UTC)

I made a mistake, I'm sorry[edit]

Here's the thing. I followed a link from a quote under happiness and a page came up said "no information on the man". I thought, Oh Well, I'd put something in. It was in the wrong place it seems. That was an accident. I am very sorry. It won't happen again. I wouldn't have a clue how to "cut and paste" to wikipaedia, and with this experience I am not interested in finding out. Please delete the article (I don't know how to) and forget I made this error. If all your concern was that it was in the wrong place, why didn't you just move it? It's very demoralising/humiliating for idiot beginners like myself who don't know what they have done wrong and it has destroyed my inchoate interest in contributing to Wiki, which is a shame because I think with time and a little positive guidance/less judgmental negativity I could have made a small contribution. It is very ordinary psychology. Not everyone is gifted.

Signing posts in talk pages[edit]

Hi. I wanted to ask you to sign comments in talk pages. The easiest way to sign is to add ~~~~ at the end -- it is automatically transformed to your IP address with a timestamp or, if you register, to a username and a timestamp. This makes it much easier to track discussions, and is the common practice here. Thanks ~ MosheZadka (Talk) 3 July 2005 14:23 (UTC)
