[edit] Verification

This tutorial does not clearly express the importance of citing references when adding content to Wikipedia. Content in Wikipedia must be verifiable. This tutorial suggests that an External links section can be used as a substitute for a References or Notes and references section. This tutorial does not agree with WP:Verifiability, WP:MOS, Wikipedia:Guide to layout, and Wikipedia's guidelines on external links.

If instructions to new users do not agree with Wikipedia policies and guidelines, you can expect a lot of unsourced Fudge personal opinion and experience being recorded in Wikipedia. This tutorial encourages new editors to Be Bold without making it clear to everyone that verifiable sources are required for all text added to Wikipedia articles. This in an encyclopedia.

I strongly suggest you clean up this tutorial ASAP. It's been misleading new editors for over three years. -- 02:12, 6 August 2007 (UTC)

Maybe the External links fudge instructions should be replaced with Citing sources instructions that describe how to use <ref></ref>, <references/>, and {{Reflist}}. Comments? --Foggy Morning 04:20, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

let's do it ! ok--Sekule 16:23, 20 August 2007 (UTC)sjdflsfj;

How? -- 02:12, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Consider new tab?

It would be helpful to incorporate an "advanced editing" tab that explains how to nominate AFDs and CFDs, and how to delete articles and categories one creates in error (ie, by misspelling, or by not noticing an existing similarly-named category.). I've been editing for years, but every time I encounter a potential AFD, I have turn over heaven and earth to find the instructions again. --TheEditrix2 17:34, 18 October 2007 (UTC)

I agree this would be useful. I don't kow how to edit tab pages. Do you know how to edit tab pages? --Foggy Morning 14:00, 21 October 2007 (UTC)

In Wikipedia, we wikipedians enjoy eating pickles with tomatoe sauce on them! YUM! YUM!

It'd be better to just improve/clarify the instructions at WP:AFD. -- Quiddity (talk) 20:01, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

[edit] hacked link on page?

the "let's learn about editing" link on this page links to a private listing for a company advertising their classified ad services. anyone know where this came from or how to fix it? — Preceding unsigned comment added by TashiD (talkcontribs) 19:45, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

Fixed. It was just a standard editing test that noone had yet reverted. Thanks for the heads-up. -- Quiddity (talk) 20:40, 7 February 2008 (UTC)
