[edit] Using Show Preview

Hello Strong Mike, I see that you have made several consecutive edits to the same page. I want to point out the Show Preview button. It's right next to the Save Page button when you edit. You should use it whenever you are making a lot of experimental edits, for example when you are trying to get formatting right. Using the Show Preview button is quicker and easier than saving and clicking "edit" again, and will keep recent changes and page histories from being flooded. Thanks, — Defender1031*Talk 22:19, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Making Redirects

It's not really a good idea to move pages to new names and then move them back afterwards, since it floods Special:Recentchanges. The proper way to make a redirect is to type the name of the desired redirect in "search", press "go", click "create this page", then "edit", then type #REDIRECT [[Name of article you want to redirect to]] BBG 15:58, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Blanking your talk page

Just for your information, unceremoniously blanking your talk page is generally frowned upon, unless it has grown so long as to become unwieldy, in which case creating an archive would be preferable anyway.  Green Helmet 17:05, 23 May 2009 (UTC)
