Can you help Americans understand the value of the British NHS? Most Americans here understand it but there are all those others outside. Proxima Centauri (talk) 18:57, 10 December 2012 (UTC)

I find it very difficult to talk to Americans period! (just kidding...) However the insurance system such as medicaid seems corrupt and is viewed as an evil socialist enterprise - which doesn't work that well! where as the NHS is very different. I think...Penguin face (talk)p

You need to make 4 more edits. Humorless fascistsociopath 22:17, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
Saloon Bar has been shut down for the next half-hour or so because of persistent trolling. Sorry for the inconvenience. This is why we can't have nice things. Theory of Practice "Now we stand outcast and starving 'mid the wonders we have made." 22:18, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
The problem may be with your browser's cache. There is no reason why you wouldn't be able to edit, unless your IP is autoblocked for some reason. Edit: Never mind, I forgot that "autoconfirmed" and "autopatrolled" were different groups. Blue Talk 22:18, 16 December 2012 (UTC)

Can you do it without using all caps? Theory of Practice "Now we stand outcast and starving 'mid the wonders we have made." 22:28, 16 December 2012 (UTC)

User talk pages...[edit]

...are communal property and not to be blanked. Thanks. Theory of Practice "Now we stand outcast and starving 'mid the wonders we have made." 00:50, 17 December 2012 (UTC)

Please sign your talk page posts with four tildes.[edit]

Thanks! Theory of Practice "Now we stand outcast and starving 'mid the wonders we have made." 18:06, 20 January 2013 (UTC)

Please fix your signature so that it links to your user pages[edit]

Not sure how. Any advice? Thanks. — Unsigned, by: Penguin face / talk / contribs
Just type four tildes. Like so: ~~~~ Theory of Practice "Now we stand outcast and starving 'mid the wonders we have made." 19:00, 20 January 2013 (UTC)

You know how. Just do it. Acei9 19:26, 20 January 2013 (UTC) This message was brought to you by me. Acei9 19:41, 20 January 2013 (UTC)

It's good etiquette that your signature contains a link to your user page and/or talk page. This is a really good idea if your signature does not match your user name. So, be a good penguin and go to Special:Preferences, then change the "New signature" box to something like:

[[User:Penguin face|helloSailor]]

(Without the nowiki tags and the leading space, of course) --ZooGuard (talk) 19:55, 20 January 2013 (UTC)

Ah.. what does this mean? helloSailor 19:56, 20 January 2013 (UTC)

Which part is unclear? Look at this screenshot: File:RawSignatureBox.JPG. At the moment, you seem to have entered "helloSailor" in the New Signature box. As a result, your signature does not contain a link to your user page or your user talk page (this page). So, in discussions people can't see who they are talking to, unless they check the history of the page.
Changing the contents of the "new signature" box to the code I gave above will make your signature look like this: helloSailor. --ZooGuard (talk) 07:56, 21 January 2013 (UTC)

Signing[edit]

Hello. Please change your signature in Special:Preferences by adding a link to your userpage. When you do, post on your talk page (this page), and I or someone else will unblock you. Blue Talk 11:57, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
