don't forget your signature
Hi Travis, Just a reminder to sign your comments on the discussion pages. It is easy to do. Just click the second to right button at the top of the edit window or type manually ~~~~. Its easy to forget--I forget all the time, but anyway I thought I would remind you. --Matthew Faulconer 13:26, 10 Dec 2005 (UTC)
Hi Travis, I just sent you an e-mail. I sent you an e-mail a while back (in Sept) and didn't get a response. No problem. But I just want to make sure that the e-mail address I am sending my latest e-mail to is correct. If you get my e-mail, please respond so I know you got it. If you don't get my e-mail it is probably because the e-mail in your preferences is wrong. Click "preferences" from the top-navigation to fix it. I am sending you an e-mail through the "e-mail this user" feature in the toolbox on the lower part of the left navigation. That sends you an e-mail to whatever e-mail address you put in your preferences--without exposing that e-mail address to the sender. If you'd prefer not getting any e-mails please remove the incorrect e-mail address from your preferences. This will take away the "e-mail this user" feature from the toolbox so that other users don't think they are sending you a message when in fact it is going no where. Thanks, --Matthew Faulconer 04:03, 27 Nov 2005 (UTC)
Hi Travis, welcome to the site.
I modified several of your contributions from today. Most of the changes were related to putting the correct type of information in the correct place. I'm glad you posted and hope you continue to do so. To find out more about what type of contributions should go where on the site, look at 1) the changes I made to your contributions and 2) the site:policies. I'd be happy to answer any questions either on this site or by e-mail.

PS please sign your comments on the discussion pages. This is easy to do with the short-hand of four tildas. Just type ~~~~ and when you click the save page button the site will automatically convert those tilda's into your signature complete with a link to your user page. I know there is a lot of conventions to learn at first. Don't worry if you make a mistake it is easy for someone else to fix it.
Hi Travis, Thanks again for your comments. I moved some of them to another area. I'll send you an e-mail to discuss. I just want to make sure you are comfortable with the changes. --Matthew Faulconer 16:01, 8 Sep 2005 (CEST)
PS I wasn't sure which verses the following comments applied. If you aren't sure how to post it to the correct verses it applies to, let me know.
- Alma is talking about the difference between just attending a meeting and living each day what is being taught. It is the difference between life style and choices and discussion of principles.
First person on Commentary pages
Hi Travis, Just a quick note to remind you of the fact that on the commentary pages it is against the policies to post comments in the first person (e.g. to say "I did this..." or "I believe ..." or "As I see it..."). See Site:Policies for more information about our policies here.
The reason for this policy in particular is that the commentary pages are a single text written by us all. We do not sign our names to the comments there (unlike for example on the discussion pages). For the reader then, they don't know who the "i" is when they see a comment that, for example says "I think ...." For this reason it just doesn't work to put comments in the first person on the commentary pages. Note that if you would like to post a comment about the scriptures in the first person you can do that on your user page (see Help:User pages) or on a discussion page. If you post a comment on your user page and that comment is directly relevant to a passage of scripture you are welcome to post a link to your comment on your user page from the relevant links section of the relevant commentary page.
Thanks for supporting the site. Keep it up. --Matthew Faulconer 05:05, 25 Sep 2005 (UTC)
