## Congratulations

Hi Michael,

Congrats on being this month's recipient of the UPE award. I enjoyed visiting your page and learning about your work and contributions. Very inspiring.

Thanks Alison I know you also work very hard in the OER space also. I wish I had more time to work on OER things but have to try and balance all the things I have/like to do :) Michael

## Styling with a template

Instead of wrapping content directly with a div:

<div style="font-family: menu,Arial;border: 1px solid #808080; width: 96%; margin-right:auto;margin-left:auto;background-color: #99FF99;-webkit-box-shadow: 5px 5px 7px #999;">
...
</div>


You might want to create a template to remove some of the repetition:

where the User:Mverhaart/Shadowbox was something like (meaning untested :-)

<div style="font-family: menu,Arial;border: 1px solid #808080; width: 96%; margin-right:auto;margin-left:auto;background-color: {{{background}}};-webkit-box-shadow: 5px 5px 7px #999;">
{{{content}}}
</div>

Hi Jim (I suspect its you!!)

Agreed. Actually I did some of the content while I was learning to use the wiki code and as always you learn progressively. If you look at http://wikieducator.org/VirtualMV/JavaScript/Starting/Basics I use

<.. JS Code here ..

I am cutting n pasting from my virtualmv.com/wiki and one day I'll get round to fixing all the random ones :)

When it comes to WIKI U r like an artist.Your PINBOARD is just fascinating which I have tried to copy.

A request... visit my pages designed for MU OER PORTAL & give me feedback for improvement.I badly need mentoring from you.

Thanks & Best regards...Sujata

Hi Sujata Sorry have not got back to you sooner, as I do not monitor my message page in WikiEducator (It hasn't worked for me for ages). Are you still working on this project? Cheers Mverhaart 00:26, 6 April 2013 (UTC)

Turn on the LQTemail setting on the Gadgets tab of your Preferences page and you will be emailed when a thread changes on a page you are watching.

Thanks Jim As you probably see I am starting the process of transferring my wiki over to WikiEducator. Will build under a virtualMV branch. We are going to put up one content block first (on JavaScript) and probably a course framework to go with it.

I have had a wave of new users/content spamming on my wiki so need to think about a better way to manage the wiki-ing and have a more permanent backup (my user list is now greater than 22,000 and the wiki-spam has gone over 1.5GB!). Hopefully you will see a lot more activity from me (and Stephanie Day also) as we create courses/content.

Cheers Michael (& Steph)

Dear Michael,
It's my pleasure to be a part of this wonderful and highly innovative group of eminent educators .I have been giving free classes online in areas of Psychology,Educational Psychology and English.I would like to share those classes as a part of the free content /lesson plan that I developed for WE.These classes are extremely useful for prospective teachers and trainers in the field of education.I wanted to clear a doubt whether I should provide the complete video lecture through uploading it in to WE or is it ok to give the link to that website ?
I know you have been very inspirational to people like me through your constant encouragement throughout the workshop along with other facilitators like Patricia Schlicht.Thank you for your continued support to raise us to higher levels of competency .I would like to actively participate in the coming sessions and to attain wikibuddy certificate during  this workshop.Thanks again .Your Wikineighbour .Balqis

Hi Michael, myself Dr. K.S.Ramakrishnan, from Chennai, India, a participant of eL4C50 workshop. I had visited your userpage and it is really nice and highly informative. I have learnt many things within these 7 days and I thank you for helping us. Visit my userpage and let me know your comments and suggestions. Michael, are HTML and Wiki language the same? If so, I want to know about HTML5 the much talked about language. Expecting for great collaborations. Warm Regards.--Dr. K S Ramakrishnan 14:06, 8 May 2011 (UTC)

## Hi to my Discussion page

Mverhaart (talk)21:22, 29 July 2010

Dear Michael, You are a very fast learner & as your facilitator I am proud of your progress. I talked about your page in Benjamin's live Wiziq session on 29th. You may see the recoding on the workshop links. You are a Natural WE, Great show. CHEERS!--Dr. Gita Mathur 14:16, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

02:16, 31 July 2010

Hi Gita, I have been working with MediaWiki for a while now, so I guess I've had some prior knowledge. Its still amazing what you can pick up on training courses as there are always things to learn. I haven't used the Rich Editor before and picked up small things along the way - which have added to my wiki knowledge. Thank you for your mentoring.-04:38, 2 August 2010 (UTC)

Hi Michael - I'm adding a message here to meet my Tutorial 8 requirements, but I have cruised around your site and I have learned so much just by seeing what you have done, and how you have done it. You are an inspiration! How to you get coloured text? I can find any icon that helps me do this. See you f2f before too long hopefully. Cheers! --Deb Stewart 11:15, 31 July 2010 (UTC)

23:15, 31 July 2010

Hi Deb, Unfortunately you cannot use the rich text editor for coloured text. If you go into the wiki editor you can use the div tag to colour text. e.g.

• <div style="color: blue;">the text in blue </div> which produces
• the text in blue
