Your recent edits[edit]

Hi there. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. If you can't type the tilde character, you should click on the signature button Button sig.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your name and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you! --SineBot (talk) 19:13, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. The project's content policies require that all articles be written from a neutral point of view, and not introduce bias or give undue weight to viewpoints. Please bear this in mind when making edits such as your recent edit to Palestinian terrorism. You may also wish to read the introduction to editing.

Information.svg Please do not add commentary or your own personal analysis to Wikipedia articles, as you did to Lampshade. Doing so violates Wikipedia's neutral point of view policy and breaches the formal tone expected in an encyclopedia. Thank you. Acroterion (talk) 19:32, 23 December 2009 (UTC)

If this is a shared IP address, and you didn't make the edit, consider creating an account for yourself so you can avoid further irrelevant notices.

This is not personal analysis; read about the ban here: www.endseurope.com/17225


It's shocking but that doesn't mean it's not important encyclopaedic content. You're the one analyzing here.

Your edit synthesizes the idea that adding a shade to a compliant lamp will render it non-compliant. The regulations deal with the lamp, not the luminaire, and you offer no supporting evidence. It is clear that you are attempting to insert a point of view concerning lighting regulations. Please do not push your opinion on the interpretation of regulations.

Likewise, your edit at Uninterruptible power supply is a synthesis in favor of a speculative conclusion that seems a bit absurd. I agree that it's inefficient to run a light from a UPS, but you're implying that an inefficient assembly of disparate components (lampshades, UPSs, etc.) somehow are illegal. The legislation addresses lamps. Acroterion (talk) 20:22, 23 December 2009 (UTC)
This [1] might be a better reference than Amazon for those 5000 hour bulbs, as it's the manufacturer's website and we don't have to read the box to get the information (and it's less likely to succumb to linkrot). Acroterion (talk) 20:40, 23 December 2009 (UTC)

Acroterion, this sounds like original analysis to me. You don't want people to know about the negative consequences of banning inefficient lighting, so you're coming up with unreferenced legal theories about why lampshades and UPSes are exempt from the ban.
