Welcoming new users[edit]

You can welcome whoever you want, but a majority of new accounts registered are spambots(blocked by the edit filter). You may want to wait until a user does something to greet them. ikanreed You probably didn't deserve that 12:43, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

Something really bad happened, so people might not have been able to reach me for a while. I put up a note when I will likely be inactive for a long time (i.e. when I had a very nasty virus). TheAtheistComrade (talk) 12:54, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

Refs[edit]

Hey, I can see ur turning embeds into footnotes in the Greenwald article, which is cool w/ me. Honestly, I don't know how to do that. I should learn. -Mona- (talk) 17:16, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

Yea, use <ref>link goes here</ref> and when using internal links use [[Name of page Goes here]] TheAtheistComrade (talk) 17:20, 16 August 2015 (UTC)
Yay me. I just successfully did a few fns. Might move a few more yet. But I haven';t ever done that <nowicki> thing, what's that for? ---Mona- (talk) 17:47, 16 August 2015 (UTC)
Ignore the nowiki I had to put that there because it was an example, and "link goes here" isn't an actual source (so to avoid problems). You CAN use it actually if the site format is interfering with you or whatever reason. Write what you want between the nowiki and publish it and it will not adhere to the usual Wiki format rules. But again, that was meant to be ignored. TheAtheistComrade (talk) 17:50, 16 August 2015 (UTC)a

Thank u for editing newbie's edits[edit]

I super appreciate it, and I think I now have both learned how to append notes and developed a sense of their preferred use in most circumstances. Only issues I now have is I can't get a space between the paragraphs in the large blockquote of Greenwald, and I still seem to have issues inserting an internal embeded link and capturing the entire name -- e.g., citing to RW for Alan Dershowitz cuts off the Alan. Will be returnjing to the CAIR enrtry and then looking around for more unfinished entries. Also, still must add the "Targeted Individuals" woo to the to do list. Thanks again to you and all for the help.---Mona- (talk) 17:58, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

That's fine man but don't cite Rational Wiki by URLS, use [[name of page on this site, not the url of the page the actual name, goes here]] TheAtheistComrade (talk) 18:03, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

Benefits of smoking[edit]

"Live Science" is not the greatest reference, but more specifically some the studies they're citing look rather feeble on their own. Remember, correlation is not causation, also one study does not make it right. For example for knee surgery, there are studies with the opposite conclusion.[1] Bongolian (talk) 02:46, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

Alright, it appears contested if there are some benefits then. I've made this clearer. TheAtheistComrade (talk) 02:47, 17 August 2015 (UTC)
