Orphaned non-free media (Image:Microsoft SQL Server Logo.png)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Microsoft SQL Server Logo.png. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 11:22, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

GA Sweeps invitation[edit]

Hello, I hope you are doing well. I am sending you this message since you are a member of the GA WikiProject. I would like to invite you to consider helping with the GA sweeps process. Sweeps helps to ensure that the oldest GAs still meet the criteria, and improve the quality of GAs overall. Unfortunately, last month only two articles were reviewed. This is definitely a low point after our peak at the beginning of the process when 163 articles were reviewed in September 2007. After nearly two years, the running total has just passed the 50% mark. In order to expediate the reviewing, several changes have been made to the process. A new worklist has been created, detailing which articles are left to review. All exempt and previously reviewed articles have already been removed from the list. Instead of reviewing by topic, you can consider picking and choosing whichever articles interest you.

We are always looking for new members to assist with the remaining articles, so if you are interested or know of anybody that can assist, please visit the GA sweeps page. In addition, for every member that reviews 100 articles or has a significant impact on the process, s/he will get an award when they reach that threshold. If only 14 editors achieve this feat starting now, we would be done with Sweeps! Of course, having more people reviewing less articles would be better for all involved, so please consider asking others to help out. Feel free to stop by and only review a few articles, something's better than nothing! Take a look at the list, and see what articles interest you. Let's work to complete Sweeps so that efforts can be fully focused on the backlog at GAN. If you have any questions about the process, reviewing, or need help with a particular article, please contact me or OhanaUnited and we'll be happy to help. --Happy editing!

Hi, I am reverting your changes in the strcat article for the following reasons:

- strcat() is able to handle certain fundamental as well as common errors, such as NULL parameters. - The first loop in the illustrated implementation is supposed to advance the index i to point to the end of the dest buffer. Your change made the code erroneous - surely not a good example for newbies. - char str1[] = "Hello,"; is the single most basic array declaration/definition/initialization statement, where one needs not declare the size of the array. Explicitly specifying the array dimensions is often a cause for errors, due to ill-formed or unterminated strings. - Caller-callee conventions (preconditions-postconditions) are fundamental in the definition of an interface. It's important one knows not only what a function does, but under what conditions and with what guarantees.

I hope you will give room for discussion before making hasty changes to an article. The talk page for the article, or my talk page are acceptable areas to do so.

Thanks in advance. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Mikefoo (talkcontribs) 09:30, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

Notice of change[edit]

Hello. You are receiving this message because of a recent change to the administrator policy that alters what you were told at the time of your desysopping. The effect of the change is that if you are inactive for a continuous three year period, you will be unable to request return of the administrative user right. This includes inactive time prior to your desysopping if you were desysopped for inactivity and inactive time prior to the change in policy. Inactivity is defined as the absence of edits or logged actions. Until such time as you have been inactive for three years, you may request return of the tools at the bureaucrats' noticeboard. After you have been inactive for three years, you may seek return of the tools only through WP:RFA. Thank you. MBisanz talk 00:20, 4 December 2012 (UTC)

Nomination of Pat Korte for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Pat Korte is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Pat Korte (2nd nomination) until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Drmies (talk) 02:36, 3 November 2014 (UTC)

Issues with UTF-8B[edit]

Your latest change on UTF-8 page reads:

UTF-8B is lossless if the UTF-8 encoding of these error code points is considered invalid so they convert to 3 errors. However the resulting UTF-16 cannot be modified before converting back, as a sequence of "errors" may convert to a valid UTF-8 sequence! This makes this scheme much less useful than it may first appear, for instance you cannot use it to make a loss-less UTF-8 editor from a loss-less UTF-16 editor).

Please elaborate a bit. In particular it's hard to get what are "these error code points" you are referring to and the notion of a lossless UTF-8/UTF-16 editor and their relations comes seemingly from nowhere causing a confusion.

Besides I believe a "lossless encoding" in this context means a reversible encoding: i.e. a transformation exists to undo the encoding and recover the initial data no matter what. However since we still produce an invalid UTF-8 though slightly less invalid (surrogates are prohibited in UTF-8) we may encounter some problems if another encoding conversion is applied, i.e. UTF-8 --> UTF-16.
