Please don't leave messages here. I maintain a centralized talk page at Meta-Wiki. If you need to get in touch with me, please leave a message there. Alternatively I can often be found on #wikimedia-nz on Freenode IRC.

Hi. I notice on your user page, you welcome Wikipedians. is there a reason why on your user page you are welcoming Wikipedians but not local project contributors? (Would you welcome fellow Wikinewsies on your Wikipedia user page?) As a fellow Wikipedian, are there any questions you have about Wikinews? I would be more than happy to assist you with any questions you have about contributing from that perspective. --LauraHale (talk) 03:31, 3 September 2013 (UTC)
Hi LauraHale, thanks for the comment. I'm still setting up my userspaces in preparation for beginning to contribute to various Wikimedia Foundation projects. I have Asperger's and I tend to do things in a fairly pedantic way sometimes, such as setting up all my userspaces across all WMF projects before I begin any real beneficial contributions. My future contributions here on WikiNews, or on any other WMF project for that matter, may be as little as asking or answering a question on a talk page, or may extend to a comprehensive range of useful and beneficial edits. Whatever I do, I want to have a unified and standardized appearance across all WMF projects.
I did have a redirect on my talk page here pointing to my global talk page on Meta-Wiki (another Wikimedia Foundation project), but it seems to have disappeared now, and the Editnotice I created doesn't seem to work here either, although it works on most other WMF projects.
As to your question about welcoming "fellow Wikipedians", I guess I could localize that message for each WMF project that I intend to get involved with. Thanks for the suggestion. AugurNZ✐⌕ 00:27, 4 September 2013 (UTC)
I've now found this list of Wikinyms which I'll start making use of when I next update my userspace profile pages. Thanks again for the suggestion. AugurNZ✐⌕ 17:47, 4 September 2013 (UTC)
