Article talk pages, also known as Discussion pages, are designed to help improve existing articles. Every article has a tab above it for discussion. New users may not be familar with how to use discussion pages on a wiki.

1. Starting a new discussion topic - To start a new discussion topic press the "+" tab (marked in red) at the top of the discussion page. Talk .JPG


2. Please sign your comments to the discussion page. To do so, please put ~~~~ or click on the signature button on the edit toolbar (marked in red) to identify yourself to the other discussion participants.

3. In order to differentiate messages from various users please use a colon or mutiple colons to indent messages when necessary. The more colons you use the farther your message will indent. Do not indent more than 6 colons. If the post above you has reached six, go back to none. This keeps the pages from introducing a scroll bar.


4. Please do not "Ping-Pong" conversations on User pages. Have your settings configured to add pages you post on to your "Watched Pages" list. If you post a question on someone's page, they should respond to you there, and vice-versa. This keeps the entire conversation together in one place, so is easier to follow.

Here is an example of discussion page dialog:


Why did you say that historians consider George Washington as one of the greatest U.S. presidents? Please give a source. Conservative 20:12, 31 March 2007 (EDT)conservative
The source is from a Washington biography I just read. I will add it to the citations on the page. Thanks for reminding me! şŷŝôρ-₮KṢρёаќǃ 21:47, 21 August 2007 (EDT)
