Don't sign examples

Don't put your name on examples you write (such as the REBOL examples you recently added). Examples are part of the wiki and may be edited by anyone; authorship is recorded in the change history, and including it in the examples will (I believe) tend to inhibit people from editing because it has someone else's name on it.

If you want to demonstrate the language's program metadata by including an author name, use an invented name that isn't yours.

Ah, thanks. I'll have to clean them up. --Gregg


Welcome to Rosetta Code! I'm Mike, and I noticed you created an account.

Some quick things you should be aware of:

Template:Mylang Helps you show what languages you're familiar with, and helps us become aware of skills with languages we haven't seen.
Category:Unimplemented tasks by language A place to find tasks missing solutions in various languages.
Blogs, twitter, facebook... We have them, and are interested in yours.
Special:Webchat Logs you into #rosettacode on the Freenode IRC channel. Not usually the most active communications medium, but occasionally helpful. It's logged at
Rosetta Code:Village Pump A general Q/A and discussion area.
Rosetta Code:Finances For most of Rosetta Code's history, expenses have been paid out of my pocket. I can't afford that much longer, and so you can see the state of Rosetta Code's finances, and how you may help. If you enjoy or are excited about the site, please consider reading through it.

Sorry for the boilerplate; it can be a bit difficult giving an individual greeting to each person. If you post information about your technical interests and background, I'll probably read it. If you already have put that kind of information on your user page, I probably already have; I'm always interested in how people do and can benefit from Rosetta Code. --Michael Mol 05:02, 27 February 2010 (UTC)

Don't sweat the boilerplate. I use them myself where I admin. Thanks for the welcome! --Gregg
