Welcome, number fan! Glad to have you here at Wikipedia. I'm also glad about your interest in number theory. Your discussion with User:Anton Mravcek about representations of 1/2 has got me thinking. But I'm supposed to suggest to you some general open tasks:

Glad to have you aboard, man. PrimeFan 02:37, 1 Jul 2004 (UTC)
Thanks for the welcome! I've now taken a bunch of stuff from HAKMEM and created an article on the interesting prime 239. (Incidentally, is this the customary place to respond, or should it be on your talk page or something?) 4pq1injbok 03:17, 1 Jul 2004 (UTC)
- I'm not sure about that, I've seen it done a bunch of different ways. If you reply on my talk page then I'm going to be notified I have a message the next time I log in. But then the flow of the conversation is broken across two pages. Replying on the same makes the flow of the conversation readily understood to other users, but it might take longer between replies.

"Long-distance assimilation" no matter what is vague to the average reader. Long-distance to what? "Non-adjacent assimilation" is also used, look it up) and it's more obvious what it means. Please take your autism elsewhere, nerd. LOL!! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 05:46, 21 December 2010 (UTC)
nice flame war you started over nothing, pig. ROFL! you're obvious. and you're still a nerd who can't focus on the real shit. ROFL!
Your User page
I just responded to your thoughtful comments on pronic/oblong/heteromecic #s at Talk:Heteromecic number. When you get a chance you ought to write your user page so that your username doesn't keep showing up in red, even if it's just to say "Hello everyone." PrimeFan 20:34, 19 Jul 2004 (UTC)
Yes, 4pq1injbok, it's nice to have your own user page. For one thing, people don't question your edits as much. I heard somewhere there's a deletionist who reverts newbies' edits without even reading them. Anton Mravcek 21:19, 27 Jul 2004 (UTC)
- That seems highly unlikely, because such behavior would get that user banned for violations of Wikipedia policies. RickK 21:26, Jul 27, 2004 (UTC)
- It does sound unlikely, but the behavior of some deletionists can be quite outrageous sometimes. Hopefully our new friend 4pq1injbok won't have any run-ins with them.
sorting "other fields"
I want to sort other fields for the number articles, but i can't remember where the sorting criteria is on the wikiproject numbers page or if its somewhere else (I need to know it because their will inevitably be disagreements about what should come before what). Its something along the lines of "the most universal and eternal first, the most local and ephemeral last" I can't remember where i read that. Do you know where that's at?

- (Sorry about the delay; I've been on vacation for two weeks.)
- There's something about that on the project page, section 3.1, Outline of Template (and you quoted it with surprising accuracy for not remembering where it is). But overall, my impression is that we've devoted much less attention to the order of these properties than the order of the mathematical properties; and anyway, it's not always clear which of two properties is the more universal and eternal.
- That said, I'd like to help with this sorting as well. User:Anton Mravcek has alrady declared his intention to undertake the sorting, but he appears to be sorting by general topic as opposed to by ephemerality. 4pq1injbok 01:49, 3 September 2005 (UTC)
Moved from my main user page
Hey! Do you have a reference that talks about the property of (Z/24Z)* you mentioned at 24 (number)? I'm interested to see how that property arises in connection with Moonshine. Sigfpe 17:21, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

|Kudos and a special barnstar for that Smithsonian ref you added to the Taco article. Thanks, Alex! Geoff Who, me? 01:12, 17 May 2012 (UTC)|
Responded to your message
I saw that you had written well informed things on the talk page for the Slave language, in particular the Hare dialect. I have become interested in the Hare dialect of Slave and have found the easy to find bibliographic things. I am however interested in being in touch with a linguist or linguists actively doing research on Hare or other Slave dialects and would really like to be in contact with speakers of Hare. Would you be able to offer any advice? Thank you --Tibetologist (talk) 15:39, 8 February 2013 (UTC)
- Sorry to disappoint, but I'm not really in a good position to come up with anyone. My own interest in linguistics is decidedly avocational, and I don't really know much about Slave. (If I remember right, when I was editing the Slave page, I'd just come across Crippen's materials on Tlingit, which in one of his survey sections cited someone identifying these Hare consonants more plausibly-sounding than the statement Wikipedia had at the time.) The closest I'd have to a personal contact is a professor at the University of Calgary that I had in undergrad who'd worked on Athabaskan phonology, Darin Howe, but it'd probably be just as out-of-the-blue for me to write him as for you to, at this juncture... 4pq1injbok (talk) 22:26, 8 February 2013 (UTC)
