Welcome (from New Zealand) to Towns, Villages and Cities! We hope you can make continuing contributions of articles and/or discussion, especially about localities you know well. I recommend that you (re-)read the Community Portal from time to time.
Please consider adding a "Babel" template (if you have not already done so) to your user page so that others know which languages you are comfortable reading. Our main language is English at present, but who knows what may develop?
Do keep an eye on the "recent changes" page, where all edits and their authors (anonymous or signed-in) are listed. Bookmark it, maybe. (And please help delete spam - unpleasant but a fact of life.)
If you live in New Zealand ("Middle-earth"), please add your name to Category:New Zealanders contributing to this site by adding that to your User page (with double square brackets and no initial colon). However, if your good fortune lies elsewhere, you can create a corresponding category for your country unless someone else has already done it: see Category:Contributors.
Discussion of any aspect of the site, and enquiries, can be made at Forum:Index or on the talk page associated with each article. Please sign and date your contributions on any talk page, so that readers know "who to talk to". If you edit a user's talk page, that user will get an alerting message on next visit.
It would help some of us to know how you discovered this site.
