Hi Steve thanks for getting the copyright page going.

Just check on the attribution - State the source, GNU FDL and date & time.

This compatibility stuff is a nightmare ...;-(. Wikipedia are our friends and I want to make sure that we do things right.

Hi Steve I am quite excited about my WikiEducaror page. I have been working on it Since October 3, 2008. I spend many hours convincing others about the very Concept of WE. Many have joined the WE. I was wondering if you could spare sometime to look at my page and give your feedback. If found ok, you may consider it for the UPE award. Gita Mathur 05:50, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

Hi Steve,

i will not like to blow my own trumpet, but was wondering if my user page fits UPE selection for the month. After working hard to create this page, many of my L4C face-2-face students virtually nearly made it thier template <smile>.

Your comments are welcome.

Hi Victor,

We won't make the award until the start of the month, but suffice it to say we really like your page. In fact, your students aren't the only ones who used some of your code on their own pages -- I just modified one of your templates for my own use as well!

SteveFoerster (talk)10:21, 23 July 2008


Hi Steve, thanks for the recognition. I am also happy about your page. Looking foward to more collaborations in future.
