Hi Jayne. As I Herbalist I suggest something about covid19.If a person has coronavirus, I have a special offer that speeds up the healing process.Use 1000 mg vitamin C capsules once a day. Eat garlic and baking soda twice a day. Use thyme infusion as an antitussive and lung cleanser. Incense Baking soda and garlic have a very positive effect on clearing the lungs of infection

My article was flagged for accuracy. Can you tell me more about this? My article is merely an instruction set for one of the many ways to become a successful entrepreneur, employee, and student. I created an instruction set based on my method for success. Am I approaching this incorrectly? How can I an instruction set for success be flagged for inaccuracy?

If I am approaching this incorrectly please let me know so I know if I have to restart my article from scratch. I would like some more feedback from the editors. Thank you.

Hi Jayne! I just wanted to ask about the editing tags: {{copyedit}}, {{cleanup}}, and {{format}}. Do they de-index the article they're applied to from search engines, or do I have to demote them manually? Thanks for the help!

I have a new appreciation for forum bots. There were some things I liked better about Vanilla, but the fact that we had to manually clean up blatant spam was not one of them :P

That does lead me to ask, though - should we delete spammy forum accounts in addition to blocking them on the main site? I know that on Vanilla, we could ban someone from the forums and not from wikiHow (in theory, at least... it didn't actually work), but there was no option to delete their forum account so I have no idea how damaging it would be to use it on the spammy accounts. (The option to confirm as spam and delete the account is marked in red, and everything else is a different color, so I clicked that one on autopilot and only realized what I did when I got the "are you sure?" message.)

Oh, terrific! That’s great to hear! And kudos to the magical spam filters. :)

Hey Jayne! Okay, sure! As for the deletion policy, I just thought it was quite interesting, and not any serious thing we need to look into. :)

Hello Jayne! I’ve come across this tiny problem that I’m confused about. In the Q&A Patrol log, I noticed that Flickety is actively patrolling. However, on the leaderboards, Flickety never showed up. I’m wondering why this is happening because I don’t recall SE and Flickety’s account being “linked.” Just a question! :)

Thanks :)

We got a cheap inflatable pool that I'm planning on blowing up sometime today and jumping in. It seems that a lot more pools are being bought since no one can go on vacation these days. I bet our cheap one won't last too long :)

Hello, in reply to your message about the Excel templates. Thanks for letting me know. I'll see what I can do about making the hyperlinks work in Google sheets. I do know of a way to make hyperlinks work, but it can be tedious and time consuming, so I wanted to let you know that it will probably take a while for me to create the templates. So, if you don't get them from me soon, don't worry, I'll still be working on them. Sorry for the late reply to your message, I just wanted to let you know that it might take me some time, so that you aren't wondering whether or not I'm still doing them.

Hi Jayne! The other day Wikia gave me some advice on how to access the Forums, and I’ll try to see if it works! In the meantime, I came across the article Assess the Benefits of Outsourcing for Your Business. Do you think this article might be NFDed as advertisement? Thanks, and God bless! I love the Canon!

Sorry that the title is so long-winded. I wanted to denote that this is the process for creating a "Target Prepaid" order to the customer - while denoting to the potential customer that it's Shipt who's delivering the order right on the title. I got it's content set. It's not really Shipt Shopper oriented (no stamp, thank you)...Perhaps you can tweak it some. I think I've moved it a couple times, suppressing the redirect link-maker for the former titles. Place a Target Prepaid Delivery Order Thru the Target for iPhone App Delivered by Shipt.

Hello, Jayne! I have written another article, How to Do a Releve. I'd love to know what you think, and If there is anything else I can add to make the article better. Thank you! :)

How has your week been? :D
