Hello and welcome to Wikipedia!

Here are some tips to help you get started:

Good luck!

P.S. One last helpful hint. To sign your posts like I did above (on talk pages, for example) use the '~' symbol. To insert just your name, type ~~~ (3 tildes), or, to insert your name and timestamp, use ~~~~ (4 tildes).


Hello, Jel. I'm watching Namaste and so noticed your edits, which I thought were well done. However, I wonder how accurate your edits on the sacredness of the word "namaste" is in terms of how it's used in India among the people whose greeting it is in their daily language. I know that it's true for Westerners, esp. in the New Age movement, to take Indian gestures and words very literally (I have a lot of first-hand experience in this), while the actual gestures/words are not meant so except in very ritual or honoring situations. A good example of a similar teminology is the phrase "Dia duit" (God save you/be with you) in Irish. This is the everyday greeting, and when said, really only means "Hello. How are you?" rather than the literal meaning. See my comments on the talk page for details on my thoughts on the subject. Note that I have no idea where you're from (though I'd guess Eastern), and if you're Indian I'd be very interested in your take on what I'm saying. Thanks for editing! --Blackcap | talk 21:11, August 29, 2005 (UTC)

  • After editing the article and cleaning it up a bit, I'm worried that your edits are a bit POV. If you disagree, please say so and why on the talk page: I love to hear other points of view, especially when I have such strong ones. Please make sure you've read WP:NPOV and go and look at the Namaste article and its talk page. It's always a good idea to look at an article's talk page before editing it, if one exists. Also look at my comments on POV in the Namaste article at Talk:Namaste#POV. Slán agat, --Blackcap | talk 21:38, August 29, 2005 (UTC)

not me; I barely understand that comment! :) -- Jel 17:13, 23 April 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
OK I struck out your name on it and made a note of it. --WikiSlasher 04:04, 28 April 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Video blog article[edit]

Hi Jel,

I'm looking to get the video blog article expanded and I noticed you've contributed to the article in the past. It would be great if you could check it out again. It could use some help. Thanks! Pdelongchamp 22:42, 28 May 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This article, which you created, is the subject of a discussion at the Village Pump [1]. As you'll see, there's some support for deleting the article. I think the book merits a WP entry, but I also think some of the criticism is well-founded. I'd be in favor of a short article that notes the book's thesis that Western psychiatry can be usefully informed by Buddhist philosophy. At any rate, I wanted to give you some notice that the article may be subject to an AfD soon. GreenGourd (talk) 19:32, 18 February 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Editor from IP addresses claiming to be you[edit]

Recent edits from the IP addresses (talk · contribs) and (talk · contribs) purporting to be from "the former editor Jel" have been made to the Origin theories of Christopher Columbus talk page, editor Dougweller's talk page editor Tim Song's talk page and the Wikiquette Alerts page. Some aspects of the edits from those IP addresses lead me to suspect that the editor responsible for them might be mistaken in his claim that the account Jel (talk · contribs) belonged to him. If this is in fact the case, you might wish to make that fact known in the relevant discussion on the Wikiquette Alerts page.

Never mind. It would appear that the person editing from those IP addresses used to edit from the account Jelmain (talk · contribs), but simply used the signature Jel. So he was not in fact claiming that your account was his.
