Welcome!

Hello, Impcaeaug, and welcome to Conservapedia!

We're glad you are here to edit. We ask that you read our Editor's Guide before you edit.

At the right are some useful links for you. You can include these links on your user page by putting "{{Useful links}}" on the page. Any questions--ask!

Thanks for reading, Impcaeaug!


I encourage you to read the pages I linked above. I also strongly encourage you to add references when editing, per commandment #2 of CP's commandments. Thanks for your edits! --1990'sguy (talk) 18:52, 24 August 2018 (EDT)

Thanks for the message! --Impcaeaug (talk) 22:38, 24 August 2018 (EDT)

Also, just a friendly reminder that CP prohibits copying from any other source, including Wikipedia (I'm not accusing you of this, but many editors come here thinking they can copy-paste Wikipedia with minor wording changes). All work must be original, and sourced -- thanks for citing a source in your latest edit!
Also, I strongly recommend you read this article: Conservapedia:How to create and maintain high-quality articles. Thanks! --1990'sguy (talk) 23:57, 24 August 2018 (EDT)

Okay, I will start reading the article. --Impcaeaug (talk) 00:00, 25 August 2018 (EDT)

For an article as large as Aurelian, you should add some headers and sub-headers to better organize the article and make it more readable -- readers tend to be turned off if they just see walls of text. Also, for an article that size, it's a good idea to find more than one source.
Also, if you want your articles to have images, you can make requests here: Conservapedia:Image upload requests. Thanks! --1990'sguy (talk) 09:18, 25 August 2018 (EDT)
And once again, I emphasize that it's a good idea to add more than just one source for an article with as much info as Aurelian. Maybe Encyclopedia Britannica? Regardless, thanks for your edits! --1990'sguy (talk) 15:05, 25 August 2018 (EDT)

Okay I will try to add more sources. --Impcaeaug (talk) 15:39, 25 August 2018 (EDT)

Thanks! Lastly, here's how to make in-line citations, which is a good thing to know for a wiki: Conservapedia:How to create and maintain high-quality articles#References section (also, see this for more detailed info: Conservapedia:Footnotes - technical help) --1990'sguy (talk) 16:17, 25 August 2018 (EDT)
Impcaeaug, belated welcome to CP! If there is anything I can help you with, let me know! However, it looks like 1990'sguy is offering some great assistance already. I do agree about references--they are important, so it would be very good if you could get into the practice of adding them. References help reinforce our credibility, give credit to our information sources, and assist visitors in research.
Thank you for your work! --David B (TALK) 01:07, 28 August 2018 (EDT)

Thank you for your edits, Impcaeaug! While I see you have cited some references, I encourage you to cite as many useful sources as possible. There are many high-quality books and other scholarly works on the Roman Empire and Roman history, and it would benefit CP to note those works. Also, as a tip, I encourage that you use this code for in-line citations: <ref>[insert reference here]</ref> I am not very knowledgeable on the various scholarly sources on the Roman Empire, so I cannot contribute that much in this area, unfortunately. --1990'sguy (talk) 15:50, 6 March 2019 (EST)

I will take your suggestion and add more sources to my edits on Roman History. Thanks for the advice! --Impcaeaug (talk) 15:58, 6 March 2019 (EST)
