Writing on talk pages in three paragraphs: whoops, mainspace, gg ex-editor in chief
 
===Writing on talk pages in three paragraphs===
It sounds really simple, but if you just make an effort to be nice or be quiet, that will help a lot. If somebody's doing something wrong and you want to write on their user talk page, describe what's incorrect and provide encouragement and advice in how to make it better. Nobody was born with an intuitive understanding of wikicode, or the English language for that matter. Positive reinforcement goes a long way to making the community stronger and new users better contributors--because even bad contributions are additions.
 
If someone makes an incorrect edit, nobody is done a favor by degrading the incorrect party.
