Hey, welcome! I'm one of the Online Ambassadors working with your class, and I'm looking forward to talking with you more and helping out over this semester. Just for easy reference, here's a couple of links:

You can contact me by email at any point, or on my talk page as you did yesterday. Another really useful option is the ##wikipedia-en-classroom connect channel, where you can receive live help. I am "sonia" on IRC most of the time, but living in New Zealand means my timezones are probably really awkward to converse live.

Anyway, good to see you, and enjoy your Wikipedia experience! sonia 23:03, 19 September 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Welcome from an Online Ambassador[change source]

This is a copy of the message I left at your English Wikipedia account.

Welcome to Wikipedia! I am one of the Online Ambassadors that will be working with your class. We are available to help you with questions on editing Wikipedia and interacting with other Wikipedians. We will also be reviewing your work and offering suggestions. You can contact me by leaving a message on my talk page, User talk:Donald Albury. You can also send me an e-mail by going to my user page (User:Donald Albury) or my talk page and clicking on "E-mail this user". Most days I am on-line several times during the day, so I should be able to respond within a few hours. I will also at times be on IRC as "dalbury". Remember, if you leave a message or comment on a talk page (either a user's talk page or an article talk page), to sign your comment with four tildes (~~~~). -- Donald Albury (talk) 09:19, 20 September 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Carousel photographs[change source]

Hi Meganblair1, I saw that you were looking for carousel photos. On the Simple English Wikipedia you are only allowed to used images from the Wikimedia Commons. They have a large collection of images - for carousels look at this link [1] You can use any of these images. If you need help, just ask. --Peterdownunder (talk) 02:05, 31 October 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Carousel resources[change source]

Hi Megan, I have started to list Children's Museum resources for your project here. The Children's Museum's carousel has already had all of its resources pulled together by the curators, and they can be found in the references section of the article. This would be a great place to start. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks! HstryQT (talk) 15:57, 2 November 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Great job![change source]

What you've done so far to Carousel reads more simply than the original. You've also inserted the reference correctly using a citation template, which is quite a feat. (I didn't learn to use these until quite a few months into editing Wikipedia!)

Just a couple of suggestions to think about: maybe move some of the information on naming from the lead into another section? It's quite a block of text as it stands. Also, watch out that when phrases in a sentence are simplified, it still makes grammatical sense. Again, great work, and keep it up! sonia 23:21, 13 November 2011 (UTC)[reply]
