If you don't indicate the copyright status of the image on the image's description page, using an appropriate copyright tag, it may be deleted some time in the next seven days. If you made this image yourself, you can use copyright tags like {{PD-self}} (to release all rights), {{self|CC-by-sa-3.0|GFDL}} (to require that you be credited), or any tag here - just go to the image, click edit, and add one of those. If you have uploaded other images, please verify that you have provided copyright information for them as well.

Your Image:NestlingQuailAndMotherQuailCropped.jpg
Move to commons representation

The image NestlingQuailAndMotherQuailCropped.jpg is a candidate to be copied to the Wikimedia Commons. When you uploaded this image, you licensed it for use under the GNU Free Documentation License (GFDL). On behalf of the Wikipedia and Commons communities, thank you. However, the GFDL requires that reproductions of the image (and any other GFDL-licenced works), must be accompanied by the full text of the GFDL. The GFDL is intended more for documentation and not images, so downstream re-users may be hindered by additional restrictions of the GFDL which may not work well on the use of one image.

Before I copy this image to the Commons, I wanted to ask whether you would be willing to multilicense your work under an additional license, such as a Creative Commons licence. Creative Commons licences, such as the Attribution Share-Alike license provide a similar copyleft permission to the GFDL, but without some of its requirements such as the distribution of the licence text. All you need to do, is place the additional license tag alongside your current license. Users can choose between which one they want to use the image under. There are many free licenses accepted on Wikipedia and Commons which can provide freedoms similar to the GFDL, but without some of its requirements.

You are under no obligation whatsoever to alter the license. Doing so merely cooperates with those members of the community who believe that multilicensing your work can ease the reuse of images outside of Wikipedia.

If you use a GFDL license tag which requires distribution of Wikipedia's general disclaimer (indicated by "Subject to disclamiers" in the template), it is also suggested that you switch it to one which does not apply them.

Whether or not you choose to dual-license your work, thank you for your consideration.

Please also see Wikipedia:Copyrights and Wikipedia:Moving images to the Commons for more information.

Did Newton's mechanics influence the English industrial revolution?[edit]

Thanks for your recent part-supportive remarks in the Gravitation discussion on 5 January, albeit I don't understand the first two paragraphs. But your interventions remind me that some many moons ago somewhere in Wikipedia discussions you claimed the Dobbs & Jacob book ‘’Newton and the culture of Newtonianism’’ showed that the 18th century English industrial technological revolution was a result of the application of Newton's mechanics. However, my logical scrutiny of Dobbs & Jacob book reveals it provides no evidence for that liberal- positivist myth. Rather it is just asserted without evidence. I understand Jacob does not deny this, but claims the evidence is to be found in her subsequent book ‘’Scientific Culture and the Making of the Industrial West’’, yet fails to specify whereso in that work. I suggest we may safely conclude that contrary to positivist mythology, Rupert Hall's thesis that Newton's mechanics played no role in the technological innovations of the English industrial revolution still stands. Wot say you ?

And where was it that you made this contribution ? I thought it was in the Scientific Revolution article discussion, but cannot find it there. --Logicus (talk) 15:48, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Can I expect any reply from you to my query here ? --Logicus (talk) 18:53, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

History of computing hardware[edit]

Could you explain why you reverted my edit re the thesis 'implementing' hardware - no thesis I have ever seen could do that. If there is no compelling reason for the revert, I would stand by my change - in the interests of clarity for the reader. Thanks. --TraceyR (talk) 09:00, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

Claude Shannon[edit]

Sorry not to have expressed myself clearly enough. I'm not saying anything about Claude Shannon, nor am I wanting to denigrate his achievement. My point is solely about the way his thesis is described in the article. A thesis is basically several pieces of paper with writing on them, and as such cannot "implement" anything. In his thesis he proposed (for the first time) the implementation of a new type of circuit. The implementation (soldering components together to implement the circuit Shannon proposed) came later. One doesn't have to have a background in computing (which, by the way, I have) to make this distinction. If you can show that he not only wrote his thesis but also submitted a working ciruit, then that's another matter, of course, but even then it wasn't the thesis which did the implementing but Shannon himself. It's about the words, not the circuit. OK? --TraceyR (talk) 10:08, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

So his thesis, without any help from human hands, implemented the entire PSTN? I'm sorry, but that seems to contravene the laws of physics as I understand them. --TraceyR (talk) 10:26, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
From the link you gave: "In his 1937 MIT master's thesis, A Symbolic Analysis of Relay and Switching Circuits, Claude Elwood Shannon proved that Boolean algebra and binary arithmetic could be used to simplify the arrangement of the electromechanical relays then used in telephone routing switches, then turned the concept upside down and also proved that it should be possible to use arrangements of relays to solve Boolean algebra problems." This isn't the same as 'implementing'.

Need a little help.[edit]

File permission problem with File:NoFoodOrDrinkOnMetro.jpg[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:NoFoodOrDrinkOnMetro.jpg, which you've sourced to an original poster that does not appear to release copyright. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license it under the given license.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

File:Elephant-shapedBluffOnTransmountainRoad.jpg needs authorship information.[edit]

Dear uploader:

The media file you uploaded as File:Elephant-shapedBluffOnTransmountainRoad.jpg is missing information as to it's authorship, or if such information is provided it is confusing.

If possible, please add or clarify this information. This will help other editors to make better use of the image, and it will be more informative for readers.

When adding authorship information to self published work please do NOT use describers such as 'I made this', 'own-work' , 'self-made' or personal names, without making your user name explicit.

This is so that media can be more accurately traced, if it is transferred to Wikimedia Commons.

Hi, I see you have worked on many science related articles in the past. We really need some help over at Richard C. Hoagland.

Your Scientific method edits[edit]

Hi Ancheta. I noticed you're cleaning up Scientific method minutiae and keeping things maintained there. I just wanted to express my gratitude go you for your diligence with this inherently difficult high-importance article. Perhaps one day we'll finally get around to breaking it up into two articles, one very basic for beginners and late-grade-school and high-school kids, another from a more advanced perspective. But for now, I feel grateful to you for all your efforts over the last several years. It's a far better article for your efforts. ... Kenosis (talk) 01:24, 24 September 2009 (UTC)

Please check your grammar[edit]

at your recent edit at Puebloan peoples and really, this is (opinion) the sort of statement that should be referenced. Who is making the claim and where was it made. Carptrash (talk) 13:54, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

I actually liked it as an addition to the article. I was just wondering where you found it. I am comfortable leaving it there. I was being more curious than bureaucratic. Carptrash (talk) 14:19, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

In checking over my watchlist I see that we have both been editing Puebloan peoples for over 4 years. Somehow, this strikes me as noteworthy. Einar aka Carptrash (talk) 03:45, 7 November 2009 (UTC)

Carptrash (I am embarassed to use your handle), yes, we have similar interests, and now that I have time I am actually re-enacting your art interests. I just found out about the storyteller pottery currently (and I believe recently, within the previous 3 decades) used by the Pueblo people in the retail potter market. I am not quite sure where to put this in an article. I have a reference which lists the current authentic Pueblo potters. (again, not quite sure where to put this). The Field Museum in Chicago within the last two years showed some work by modern Pueblo potters which shows the high skill level of the newest generation of potters. (sophisticated designs, new totems, etc.) --Ancheta Wis (talk) 22:17, 7 November 2009 (UTC)
A bit of my history before we go to the Puebloan pottery history. Carptrash (as a name) started a decade or so ago on an www forum far away - Detroit. It began as Carpe Mañana. It then morphed into Carp Man because of my tendency to carp at folks. Then after a particularly nasty online exchange involving a discussion of "trailer trash", I changed it to "Carptrash" because at the time I was living in a trailer. There is some mention of it here [1], so it's my choice, but I do answer to Einar too. I have pulled out what books I have that touch on Pueblo pottery and will be sticking little edits into that section as I go along. These should arrive complete with inline citations. Did you mention that you are in El Paso, Texas? Lucky you. I have several tasks to do there involving Luis Jiménez and Trost and Trost. Some day . . .................

Another little ego[edit]

Dear Ancheta,

He simply jumped in and started to delete. I undid his deletions, but I am unsure did we have some damages in progress.

I sort of agree with Fences and windows here, I think I can understand that you wanted to put some effort in and help this user. I didn't realise at first that you were such an experienced editor (and indeed an admin, although you don't seem to do a lot of adminning). It might be a better idea to encourage editors to work within the current norms rather than attempt to redefine them on one article.   pablohablo. 00:53, 20 February 2010 (UTC)

Interesting comment you made[edit]

Here, you touched on a subject that is interesting to me. I started (and have not worked much on) an essay: User talk:Sinneed/WP-WP editor COI. I wonder what things will be like when the pool of editors grows very large... say 1 billion... or if it will. My fear is that, over time, many many articles will become similar to Kripalu Center or Sikh extremism... that many articles will have one or more active editors with strong opinions who insist that their POVs belong in WP, and dominate the article. Hopefully, you will forgive my intrusion if you find this uninteresting. In any event, all the best, and happy editing.- Sinneed 20:54, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

Ancheta, thanks, but in our case (the Scientific method wiki), Basilicofresco's edit was easily taken care of, and it's just as well that I stop half-embedding "pp." - maybe it could lead to unexpected problems in the future as well.

underscores seem to work better in the link (at the Scientific method wiki)[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:DEC,VT52.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' 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 "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. J Milburn (talk) 18:32, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

Please take a look at the Tablet PC discussion[edit]

Two editors on the Tablet PC discussion are trying to create "consensus" in order to make the article specific to Microsoft. You and I had a long debate there some months ago and while we did disagree on many things, we did discuss with an open mind I think. I am having a serious problem doing the same with two editors who support the notion that Tablet PC is specific to Microsoft; I searched Amazon and many products titled as "Tablet PCs" turn out to be running Android or Meego or QNX. Turning the entry to just about MS makes no sense to me. Your participation there would be most welcome; I am not looking for a supporter -- I am looking for an editor who is eager to discuss with an open mind and some common sense. Thanks in advance.

Sacred Science/Humanities Template[edit]

Ancheta Wis,

Thanks for making a "Humanities" template and putting an end to the eternal debate about what should go in a "Science" template. I still think that Canon Law, Theology and Philosophy are sciences (forms of knowledge), but I recognize that most of the Wiki community don't see things my way and, as these things go, majority wins. Thanks for your mediation Ancheta!

P.S. Great {{Humanities}} template!

Regional Ambassador[edit]

Hi, Ancheta. Could you elaborate on this bug? Also, the Great Lakes region has two ambassadors: I am the regional ambassador for Wisconsin, Michigan, Kentucky, southern Indiana, and southern Illinois; User:Etlib is the regional ambassador for Ohio, northern Illinois, central Illinois, northern Indiana, and central Indiana.

Visual System[edit]

Hi Ancheta_Wis, Thanks for adding to the Visual system table. I have a question, which is: Are the Canonical optical pathway, Brightness detection pathway and the Eye motion pathway all parts of the brain, or are they pathways to the brain, and I just re-read it, or are they part of the optic tract. Thanks Leveni17 Aug 2011

Hypothesis[edit]

I didn't realize you were the one who added the 200-y/o Orsted ref[2]; I guess you were a little protective and that's why you did the blind revert? Nice source now though, I was looking as well but clearly you were faster than I. Apologies if removing that stepped on your toes, and excellent job finding the Feynman source so quickly.

Mystery[edit]

Please solve this mystery if you can...

On September 23rd, traffic to Portal:James Bond doubled, and has stayed at the new level since then. I can't figure out what happened.

See http://stats.grok.se/en/201109/Portal%3AJames_Bond

Traffic to Outline of James Bond stayed the same (though it was at the higher-level already), which leads me to suspect changes made somewhere in Wikipedia.

See http://stats.grok.se/en/201109/Outline%20of%20James_Bond

I'd like to find out what happened, in case it reveals helpful link placement tips that can double the traffic to outlines too!

I look forward to your reply on my talk page. The Transhumanist 00:33, 6 October 2011 (UTC)

P.S.: I also look forward to seeing the Outline of the vertebrate visual system.

November 2011[edit]

Hello, and thank you for removing vandalism from Daniel. This is much appreciated, but unfortunately your repair was not successful in restoring the article to its pre-vandalised state. For future reference, it is better to deal with vandalism by checking the article's page history to determine how it appeared before it was vandalised. You can then restore the whole article, or the relevant part of it, to an appropriate earlier version. If you simply delete the visible vandalism then any content removed or overwritten by the vandal is lost. See How to deal with vandalism for details. Thank you.

File source problem with File:Binturong.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Binturong.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

I hope you know that this[3] is a blatant abuse of the rollback privilege.

MSU Interview[edit]

Dear Ancheta Wis,


My name is Jonathan Obar user:Jaobar, I'm a professor in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences at Michigan State University and a Teaching Fellow with the Wikimedia Foundation's Education Program. This semester I've been running a little experiment at MSU, a class where we teach students about becoming Wikipedia administrators. Not a lot is known about your community, and our students (who are fascinated by wiki-culture by the way!) want to learn how you do what you do, and why you do it. A while back I proposed this idea (the class) to the community HERE, were it was met mainly with positive feedback. Anyhow, I'd like my students to speak with a few administrators to get a sense of admin experiences, training, motivations, likes, dislikes, etc. We were wondering if you'd be interested in speaking with one of our students.


So a few things about the interviews:

  • Interviews will last between 15 and 30 minutes.
  • Interviews can be conducted over skype (preferred), IRC or email. (You choose the form of communication based upon your comfort level, time, etc.)
  • All interviews will be completely anonymous, meaning that you (real name and/or pseudonym) will never be identified in any of our materials, unless you give the interviewer permission to do so.
  • All interviews will be completely voluntary. You are under no obligation to say yes to an interview, and can say no and stop or leave the interview at any time.
  • The entire interview process is being overseen by MSU's institutional review board (ethics review). This means that all questions have been approved by the university and all students have been trained how to conduct interviews ethically and properly.


Bottom line is that we really need your help, and would really appreciate the opportunity to speak with you. If interested, please send me an email at obar@msu.edu (to maintain anonymity) and I will add your name to my offline contact list. If you feel comfortable doing so, you can post your name HERE instead.

If you have questions or concerns at any time, feel free to email me at obar@msu.edu. I will be more than happy to speak with you.

Thanks in advance for your help. We have a lot to learn from you.

Sincerely,

Jonathan Obar --Jaobar (talk) 07:04, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
