Re: Schiaparelli link[edit]

I think it's fair to assume that most of the people reading the article are English speakers, as so it's best to keep information and links on the page to English-language resources. Gary King (talk) 02:39, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

Wikimania Video[edit]

Hi Andrea! I saw your username on a list of Wikimania attendees. My name is Victor Grigas and I am a 'storyteller' at the Wikimedia foundation. It's my position to find and tell the stories of individual Wikipedians to share to get the public to be engaged and encouraged to support Wikipedia. I will be with a small team and we will be conducting on-camera interviews with Wikipedians at Wikimania from July 10th through July 15th and was hoping that you would be interested in sharing your story with me.

People in the office in San Francisco said you were awesome.

Please let me know if you are interested. There is limited availability and I expect my schedule to fill up quickly. Hope we get to meet in person! Victor P.S. The best way to reach me is by email: vgrigas@wikimedia.org

Proposed deletion of Confluenze[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Confluenze has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Relatively new journal. Rated "class A" by the Italian "National Agency for the Evaluation of Universities and Research Institutes", but given the list this is sourced to, this does not amount to much. No independent sources, not listed in any selective major databases. Does not meet WP:GNG or WP:NJournals.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Guillaume2303 (talk) 14:37, 25 September 2012 (UTC)

Nomination of Confluenze for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Confluenze 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/Confluenze 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 template from the top of the article. Guillaume2303 (talk) 17:15, 26 September 2012 (UTC)

May 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to University of Bologna may have broken the syntax by modifying 6 "[]"s. If you have, don't worry, just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

Thanks, BracketBot (talk) 08:42, 30 May 2013 (UTC)

Books in a library[edit]

Hi. Re: http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=File:Wikisource_2012_-_Aubrey.pdf&page=11

The quote appears to be from "The Library of the Future" (1988) https://saltworks.stanford.edu/assets/jj871ws1405.pdf‎

which was quoted in "The Age of Intelligent Machines" (1990) (p.328) by Ray Kurzweil. (http://www.amazon.com/The-Age-Intelligent-Machines-Kurzweil/dp/0262610795#reader_0262610795)

which I found via http://firstmonday.org/ojs/index.php/fm/article/view/949/870#note8)

I can't find anything earlier than that, though maybe an email to Minsky himself would resolve it...

Great slides, much to think about. Thanks :) –Quiddity (talk) 06:45, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

Wikimania 2014 London[edit]

Hi, I'm the Open Access Community Liaison for Wikimania 2014, I just thought I'd mention the project wiki here where we'll be discussing ideas about Wikimedia and open access. Lawsonstu (talk) 09:57, 7 September 2013 (UTC)

Statistica (journal)[edit]

This is an automated message from MadmanBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Statistica (journal), and it appears to include material copied directly from http://rivista-statistica.unibo.it/about/history.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details. (If you own the copyright to the previously published content and wish to donate it, see Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials for the procedure.) MadmanBot (talk) 14:50, 18 October 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Statistica (journal)[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Statistica (journal) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article or image appears to be a clear copyright infringement. This article or image appears to be a direct copy from http://rivista-statistica.unibo.it/about/history. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website or image but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

The Wikipedia Library: New Account Coordinators Needed[edit]

Hi Books & Bytes recipients: The Wikipedia Library has been expanding rapidly and we need some help! We currently have 10 signups for free account access open and several more in the works... In order to help with those signups, distribute access codes, and manage accounts we'll need 2-3 more Account Coordinators.

It takes about an hour to get up and running and then only takes a couple hours per week, flexible depending upon your schedule and routine. If you're interested in helping out, please drop a note in the next week at my talk page or shoot me an email at: jorlowitz@gmail.com.
