:Hello? If you can't explain why you are creating copyrighted entries I'm going to have to mark them for deletion and block you for violating our policies. [[User:HelpJazz|Help]][[User talk:HelpJazz|Jazz]] 14:12, 28 December 2007 (EST)
== Last chance ==
Last chance before you are blocked: explain the source of your entries. Thanks and Godspeed.--[[User:Aschlafly|Aschlafly]] 18:35, 28 December 2007 (EST)
Greetings Aschlafly,
I'm not sure this is where you expect me to "explain myself"...but here goes....
I must admit posting any information on Conservapetia is perhaps more than I know how to do.
I was excited in learning of Conservapedia, but shocked at the lack of information on the site.
So, as a life long radio broadcasters of legendary status I first began by posting some information on
myself. Only to find it has not been accepted.
As the creator and owner of the Hit Parade Hall of Fame, I assumed adding bio's on the artists that I
wrote myself and use on that site, would be helpful to Conservapedia visitors since the information on
most all of the nominees and inductees of the Hit Parade Hall of Fame are not posted here.
I'm wrong again, since you now inform me of my last chance to explain myself before I'm blocked.
Look, I'm trying to be of help. If you don't what to take advantage of my vast knowledge and personal
experiences with many, many celebrities in both radio and recorded music. Then so be it. Block me
if you want. If you instead understand that I personally have written everything I have posted
here and decide that it is of value to visitors to this site, then let me know.

:Thank you for the clarification. Your pages are being restored. [[User:DanH|DanH]] 23:49, 28 December 2007 (EST)
:: Thanks for explaining. Of course your own work is welcome here, and you might understand our policy against copying others' work. Sorry for the misunderstanding.--[[User:Aschlafly|Aschlafly]] 00:14, 29 December 2007 (EST)
:::Please don't take offense for being questioned. In a perfect world it wouldn't happen, but most people copying information and not replying aren't doing it to help our site, but to hinder our efforts. I hope you understand it's not personal and your positive contributions are always welcome. [[User:Learn together|Learn together]] 05:09, 29 December 2007 (EST)
::::In order to avoid this sort of issue (which could arise again in the future if someone hasn't seen this conversation yet realises that your articles are copied from elsewhere), you need to put a notice on the talk page of such articles. I created the {{tl|Copied from}} template for this just recently. Just put {{tt|<nowiki>{{Copied from||user=~~~~|site user=John Rook}}</nowiki>}} on the talk page of each article. (At least that's what I think you should put, from reading your post above.) That template was designed with other Wikis in mind (hence the name you use on the other site). We can modify it if necessary. I hope that's all clear; feel free to ask for clarification if not.
:::: And of course even though you've copied your own work here, others are free to add to it, amend it, etc., just like any other article here.

:Heh :) Hi John [[Image:User Fox.png]] [[User:Fox|Fox]] <small>([[User talk:Fox|talk]]|[[Special:Contributions/Fox|contribs]])</small> 09:18, 29 December 2007 (EST)
== Logo request ==
'''I'd like to create a link to Conservapedia on my websites. Can you provide a jpg of your logo?
Thank You
John Rook'''
==Permission to copy==
It would help admins like me, if you would include on your website a notice giving permission for Conservapedia to copy your writing. I just deleted an article, thinking "we" had violated "their" [[copyright]]. --[[User:Ed Poor|Ed Poor]] <sup>[[User talk:Ed Poor|Talk]]</sup> 15:15, 30 December 2007 (EST)
:It would be helpful for me if I knew which of my contributions you deleted.
:I'll have my webmaster do as you suggest upon his return to work following the New Years holidays.
:I would very much like to have a a jpg logo of Conservapedia with the words "The Trustworthy encyclopedia" included.
:Upon its receipt it will be noted on the Hit Parade Hall of Fame website along with a link to it.
:Thank you
:John Rook
:: I gather that Ed Poor has undeleted them, so you should be right there. [[User:Philip J. Rayment|Philip J. Rayment]] 05:12, 31 December 2007 (EST)
== Wiki editing ==
It's obvious that you are new to Wiki editing, and we don't expect new editors to become experts on it before they edit, but there are some things that you are doing wrong that I'd like to sort out straight away.
* Do not start a new post with a line of equals signs (============). Equals signs at the start of a line indicate a heading in Wiki software, and the software automatically uses these headings to create a table of contents (once there is at least three such headings). A line of equals signs shows up poorly in the Contents.
* If you are starting a new section, use two equals signs ''each end'' of some text that will be the heading for the section. If you click on the 'Edit' link to the right of the heading of this section, you will see how I put in the "Wiki editing" heading. (A sub-heading under and existing heading has three equals signs each end, and so on.)
* In having conversations on talk pages (such as right here), it's normal to indent your message from the previous one by starting each line with a colon, or with one extra colon than the previous post. For example (click the edit button again to see how I did this):
: This line is indented.
:: This line is indented further.
* It's good practice to "sign" your messages with four tildes ({{tt|<nowiki>~~~~</nowiki>}}), or by using the signature button on the editing toolbar (which does pretty much the same thing). You can alter the content of that signature on your user preferences page. If you want help with that, please ask.
* If you are starting a new conversation on a talk page, it should go at the end of the talk page. A simple way to do this is to click the "+" tab at the top of the talk page. In this case, you don't need to put the equals signs around the heading; the software will do it for you.
Anyway, I've hit you with enough for now. happy editing.

==Ugh :P==
Could you please bold the title names (whatever they're called) in your articles? I've boldened a few, but wow you have so many. Also, people have the (xxxx-xxxx) birth and death date next to their names in most articles here, but I didn't want to disrupt or move around your text. Just a heads up I suppose. :D
Sadly, I don't know any of those names in the articles, not even the bands. lol [[User:LardoBolger|LardoBolger]] 13:00, 31 December 2007 (EST)
WOW, Thank you so much for the lesson on using these pages.
As a senior, senior, past the retirement age but unwilling to do so, I'm attempting to do
what others have done for me throughout my years of being a business executive.
I've printed out your directions to study and hopefully follow in future postings.
Now, I'll save this and check to see if it appears I'm on the right track.
Happy New Year !
