Welcome![edit]

Hello, Newsjunkie, Welcome to Wikipedia!
I hope you like working here and want to continue. If you need help on how to name new articles, look at the Guide to layout, and for help on formatting the pages visit the Manual of Style. If you need general help, look at Help and the FAQ, and if you can't find your answer there, check the Village pump (for Wikipedia related questions) or the Reference Desk (for general questions). There's still more help at the Tutorial and the Policy Library. Also, don't forget to visit the Community Portal — and if you have any more questions after that, feel free to post them on my New-Users' Talk Page.

Additional tips:
Here are some extra tips to help you get around Wikipedia:
  • If you want to play around with your new Wiki skills, try the Sandbox.
  • Click on the Edit button on a page, and look at how other editors did what they did.
  • You can sign your name using three tildes, like this: ~~~. If you use four, you can add a datestamp too. Always sign comments on Talk pages, never sign Articles.
  • You might want to add yourself to the New User Log
  • If your first language isn't English, try Wikipedia:Contributing to articles outside your native language
  • Full details on Wikipedia style can be found in the Manual of Style.
Happy editing!

Commercial links[edit]

Links to commercial sites, especially if they provide no information about the subject, are not appropriate for Wikipedia. This is an encyclopedia, not a fan site, and especially not a site to promote stuff for sale. Tverbeek 6 July 2005 12:46 (UTC)

It's also considered rude to delete messages from your Talk page, especially without responding to them. Deleting only critical comments is particuarly inappropriate. Tverbeek 6 July 2005 17:08 (UTC)


I didn't think there was a need to respond. I won't do it again - I was more concerned with the actual fact -that people make these fake buttons - than with that specific site, and using the site as an example. I thought I had the commercial site rule covered by having it as a source/reference/proof/example, whatever you want to call it. But if it's not ok, than it's that fine. I'll delete them from the other pages they're still on too, also because the links were not only commercial, but dead. I

I delete the comments, those that address a certain issue, once I have "dealt" with them. I leave the neutral ones because I usually don't have to "deal" with them in any way. If I had the time to figure out how to do it, I would probably have it all in an archive, like other people do, but I just don't right now. And of course, it's all still in the history, so anyone can check anything there. --newsjunkie 6 July 2005 19:30 (UTC)

Same Newsjunkie?[edit]

Just wondering, are you the same "Newsjunkie" who runs The West Wing News Blog? - Scm83x 02:55, 22 October 2005 (UTC)

Peer review for The West Wing[edit]

I have started a peer review of The West Wing at Wikipedia:Peer review/The West Wing (television) and I inviite you to take part in the discussion and help make the necessary changes as the community as a whole reviews the work that we have all done together on this article.

TWW The Debate[edit]

Did The West Wing live debate broadcast two episodes, one for the East and one for the West, or did they rebroadcast the East Coast feed as I had seen talk of on the TWOP? Thanks! -Scm83x 05:30, 10 November 2005 (UTC)

FAC for The West Wing (television)[edit]

I have put The West Wing article up as a candidate for featured article status. I appreciate your help in this article's peer review. Your input and support in the FAC located here would be appreciated! Thanks! -Scm83x 08:55, 5 December 2005 (UTC)

SuggestBot picks articles in a number of ways, from comparing articles that need work to other articles you've edited, to choosing articles randomly (ensuring that all articles with cleanup tags get a chance to be cleaned up). It tries to recommend only articles that other Wikipedians have marked as needing work. Your contributions make Wikipedia better -- thanks for helping.

If you have feedback on how to make SuggestBot better, please tell me on SuggestBot's talk page. Thanks from ForteTuba, SuggestBot's caretaker.

P.S. You received these suggestions because your name was listed on the SuggestBot request page. If this was in error, sorry about the confusion. -- SuggestBot 04:17, 20 March 2006 (UTC)

Nicole Santos Facebook Hack[edit]

What was your reasoning for removing the courtesy blank on Nicole Santos Facebook Hack? Inks.LWC (talk) 08:39, 12 May 2011 (UTC) I felt it was significant because it seemed unusual and something people could use info about. But I guess, we'll see how how much play it gets in the news tomorrow....--newsjunkie (talk) 09:11, 12 May 2011 (UTC)
