By the way, you can sign your name on Talk pages using four tildes (~~~~), which produces your name and the current date. If you have any questions, you can ask them at the water cooler or to anyone on the Welcommittee, or ask me on my Talk page. Again, welcome! Jason Safoutin 21:03, 15 April 2006 (UTC)
For a new user, I have to say you did an excellent job on Police confirm lagoon bodies are boys missing from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. You jumped in head first, updated it and sourced it properly and informatively. Not a good job, its a great job :) Jason Safoutin 22:22, 15 April 2006 (UTC)
- I also decided you deserve a cup of tea at WN:TEA. Personally I would prefer coffee ;-) Jason Safoutin 22:48, 15 April 2006 (UTC)
