Welcome to Open Circuits, Russ hensel.

Thank you for improving the passives page. I hope you enjoy reading OpenCircuits and sharing your knowledge with us.

A few tips:

  • You can "sign" your contributions by typing four tildes "~~~~" at the end.
  • Be bold with your editing. If you add information that really belongs on some other page of this wiki (or on some other wiki entirely), or you accidentally delete some crucial stuff, it's fairly easy for anyone to fix it. Please feel free to revert or otherwise fix-up any of my edits that turn out to be erroneous and/or misguided.
  • Sometimes it is faster to delete spam (and restore what the spammer may have deleted) by pressing the "undo" button on the page history "diff" page.
  • We are all volunteers here.

Please feel free to talk about your electronics experiences here.

I see from your comment on components that I've been a little over-zealous locking down pages. Oops.

Thank you for adding good information to Open Circuits. --DavidCary 14:56, 17 January 2008 (PST)

p.s.: There's a bit of an art to naming pages in a wiki.

("I’m watching people at other places struggle to build wiki ... they’re making big long names that are hard to remember / match right ... and not inter-connecting them together. That is, they’re not building ideas on top of ideas." -- LionKimbro)

When I mis-spell the title of a page, please use the (confusingly-worded) "Move this page" link in the navigation bar to re-name it to a better title -- preferably a correctly-spelled title.

When a page needs to be deleted -- because all the information that was on it has moved on to some other, more appropriate page -- or because it's never had good information, only spam -- please slap the [[Category:AFD]] link on it. Then, sooner or later, the page will be destroyed by the system.

I apologize for not already explaining this stuff. See the "help" link in the left navigation bar? That's where I should have explained it. But (a) I worry that I'm already far too familiar with this software, so I'll write brief, cryptic statements that may technically be true, but aren't helpful to anyone who doesn't already know, or (b) I worry that I'll ramble on and on about some trivial feature, giving people the misleading impression that this is difficult to use.

So: If you learn something about OpenCircuits that you wish you had learned a long time ago, help the next person by mentioning it on that help page.
