Hello, Firstarticle, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your changes. I hope you like it here and decide to stay. Sadly, one or more of the pages you started may not fit some of Wikipedia's guidelines for new pages and may soon be deleted.

There is a page about making articles you may want to read. It is called "How to write Simple English articles". If you need help, please post a message at "Simple talk", where other experienced Wikipedians can answer any questions you have. Or, you can type {{helpme}} on your user page, and someone will soon answer your questions. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy changing pages here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will turn into your username and the date. If you have any questions, ask me on my talk page. Again, welcome!
