Question.png I am looking for help!
Ask your question below.
Note to helpers: Once you have offered help, please replace this template with {{tlp|helpme}}.



For general help with templates, see WP:Template messages. (This note will not appear on tagged pages)

This is the {{helpme}} message box.

If you need help, you can place this template on your own user talk page, and write your question below it. Then our helpers will be notified.

Here is what you would put on your talk page:

== How does X work? ==
{{helpme}}
Your question.
--~~~~

The four tildes "~~~~" will automatically add your signature, which is your username and a timestamp.

Technical details

When used, this template categorizes the talk page into Category:Contributors looking for help.

The team that monitor this category are the Wiki Support Team. If the help being requested is about how to edit or use the wiki for research they will, in the majority of cases be able to help. If the help required relates to content they may use the {{unresolved}} template to alert moderators and/or WikiProject teams about the issue. If the help requested is a question about Historical Records then the template {{records question}} could be used.

That being said, any user can help any other user.
