Welcome[change source]

Welcome, TheBlankSlate!
Hello, TheBlankSlate, and welcome to the Simple English Wikipedia! Thank you for your changes, especially what you did for Wiki.

You may want to begin by reading these pages:

For some ideas of pages to work on, read Wikipedia:Requested pages or the list of wanted pages.

At Wikipedia, remember to be bold! This means that you should not be afraid to change any articles. This is because, if you make any mistakes, you can always fix it later! If you have any questions, you can always ask them at Simple Talk.

If you need help just click here and type {{helpme}} and your question.

I hope you have a fun time here. If you need any help, be sure to visit Simple Talk or contact an administrator. See you around! Infogapp1 (talk) 10:37, 29 June 2020 (UTC)

Among Us (video game)‎[change source]

Just saw you added some references in the article. When you add a link to the subject's website (this also includes official social media links), please add them in another section called "Other links". Please see GameSpot for example what the difference between References vs. Other sites. Also, when you add references, always ask yourself, "Is this site one of those Wikipedia:Reliable sources?". Reliable sources are those that have Editorial oversight and integrity. Therefore, community-generated posts like Quora, Buzzfeed and forums don't usually fall under those. :) — Infogapp1 (talk) 13:38, 29 June 2020 (UTC)

Hi! :@TheBlankSlate: Quick tip: when you reply to message, simply add : before your response and it indents your message, making it easier to differentiate between the correspondence :) —

Word list[change source]

Hey there and welcome! I really appreciate the work you're putting in here. Simple English Wikipedia is definitely a little different than you might expect. While it's not always possible, you should try to keep all words in an article very simple. A great guide line is BE 1500 which is a list of simple English words that are easily understood. And our guide is handy too. Again, welcome and happy editing! Operator873talkconnect 14:38, 29 June 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for the information! Sorry, I'll try to use simpler words in the future. TheBlankSlate (talk) 14:41, 29 June 2020 (UTC)

Blank pages[change source]

Please try not to create blank pages. If you do create a talk page, be sure to at least add the {{talkpage}} template at the top. Thank you, IWI (chat) 14:22, 30 June 2020 (UTC)

But it's just making it easier for people to edit. Sorry. TheBlankSlate (talk) 14:24, 30 June 2020 (UTC)

This is fine, but please make sure to at least add the template so the page isn't blank. IWI (chat) 15:11, 30 June 2020 (UTC)
Template added! Thanks. TheBlankSlate (talk) 09:33, 1 July 2020 (UTC)
