Hello, and welcome to Wikiquote. Thank you for your contributions.

Currently, you are editing without a username. You can continue to do so, as you are not required to log in to Wikiquote to read and edit articles; however, logging in will result in a username being shown instead of your IP address (yours is Logging in does not require any personal details, and there are many other benefits for logging in:

  • The use of a username of your choice, provided that it is appropriate and available.
  • The ability to easily review all your contributions via a "My contributions" link.
  • The use of your own personal Wikiquote page watchlist to which you can add articles that interest you.
  • The ability to customize the appearance and behavior of the website for your viewing.
  • Become eligible for potentially taking on the role of a Wikiquote administrator.
  • The right to be heard in elections and have your vote count.
  • Your IP address will no longer be visible to other users meaning you will have greater privacy. (However, your IP address is still saved and accessible to users with Checkuser permission.)

When you edit pages:

  • Please respect others' copyrights; do not copy and paste the contents from webpages directly.
  • Please use a neutral point of view when editing articles; this is possibly the most important Wikiquote policy.
  • If you are testing, please use the Sandbox to do so.
  • Do not add unreasonable contents into any articles, such as copyrighted text, advertisement messages, and text that is not related to an article's subject. Adding such content or editing articles maliciously is considered vandalism.

If you are stuck, feel free to ask a question on my talk page. I will answer your questions as good as I can! Thank you again for contributing to Wikiquote. Cbrown1023 talk 02:12, 4 February 2007 (UTC)
