Essay: A Startling Revelation About the Celebrity Known as Jewel

Hi there

I hope you don't mind but rather than a redirect, I just posted the link up there since talk pages are for communication and all that. Anywho, I happened across an interesting comic but I am not really sure what to do with it. Any idea what section would be good on this wiki for it? I uploaded it here (english translation). Seems like provoking commentary on modern censorship. Ty 10:17, 15 August 2011 (UTC)


Noticed you did a lot of essays, if you don't mind could you grab the ones I missed and tag them with Category:Essays so all essays are linked from that category? Ty 10:34, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

Hi, Tyciol, Since when are you on the administration? What has been going on there without my knowledge lately?
Anyhoo, the reason I placed those essays on the "talk" pages is because nobody on the administration took the time, despite my requests, to e-mail me and teach me how to use the tools of the Wiki properly, including how to start new pages, to tag the pages with the appropriate category, etc. Hence, I had to improvise and learn the entire thing almost completely on my own. If you know how to work the tools, including doing the above two things, and have the time to give me the run-through on them, I would appreciate it.
In the meantime, since I do not currently know how to tag essays into categories, I will list the other essays I put up that are not currently on the list for the Category:Essays page, so that maybe you can tag them and get a link to each of them up there yourself until I learn how to do it:
That's all I could find for now. Thank you for making this intervention, it's both welcome and appreciated. I will get back to you with my opinion on the comic strip you sent me a link to ASAP, so I have a bit of time to look it over. --Dissident 21:29, 17 August 2011

I dunno, someone made me a mod some day, I forget why. Trust well placed since I am the epitome of technicalness, NPOV, organization and anti-vandalism in spite of whatever wikipedia arbcoms say. Technically it`s not the place of arbcoms to teach to use the software, in spite of the problems I have with their staff, editing wikipedia is probably a good way to get familiar with the MediaWiki software. They have a lot of guides written on stuff. I pretty much picked it up as I go along. Thanks for posting the links (I wikified them) and I`ll go and tag them later, my comp`s in the process of crashing (see the backwards apotrophes and my inability to use a question markÉ) but should be able to do it later.

I'm now tagging them with the category as requested. Also, to set them apart since you have done so many, would you like there to be a Category:Dissident essays as a subcategory to put them in instead? I'm thinking this might be good for grouping multiple essays that share a single author for aiding navigation. Ty 20:15, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
