Responding on a Talk page[edit]

If someone leaves a reply or tags you with a question, you should respond.

Open up the page just as you would open up an article to edit. Underneath the comment you're responding to, type a colon ( : ). Each : will indent your response deeper into the conversation. So if you respond to a response, use two colons, etc.

It is crucial that you sign your messages with four tildes ( ~~~~ ) to automatically mark it with your username and a timestamp.
