Greetings. Because you have already cast a vote for the 2013 Arbitration Committee Elections, I regret to inform you that due to a misconfiguration of the SecurePoll we've been forced to strike all votes and reset voting. This notice is to inform you that you will need to vote again if you want to be counted in the poll. The new poll is located at this link. You do not have to perform any additional actions other than voting again. If you have any questions, please direct them at the election commissioners. --For the Election Commissioners, v/r, TParis

Hi. I recall you wanted to get updates about developments in Wikiversity, so here I am. I've chosen today to be the official start of the Wikiversity Journal of Medicine.

Merge Universal access to all knowledge to Internet Archive[edit]

Hi, There is a discussion about merging the article:Universal access to all knowledge to article:Internet Archive at Talk:Universal access to all knowledge . I don't agree with it. I think that you are interested to the subject: "access to knowledge". I request you that help me to prevent Universal access to all knowledge from merging to another articles.DZTREQWS (talk) 19:28, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

Hey Lane. In this edit [1] you added a 1991 primary source.[2] Why is that? Also what you have added is not controversial. One or two refs should be sufficient. You do not need 6 :-) Doc James (talk · contribs · email) (if I write on your page reply on mine) 19:07, 4 April 2014 (UTC)

Jmh649 I checked my notes and do not know how I got that reference. It is unrelated to anything I am doing, so I think I must have pulled an incorrect PMID somehow then generated a citation I did not need. Maybe I should step down the citations. I am omitting the sources which are not reviews, but still, I have not considered that a best practice would to choose only some review articles and not provide all that might be available. Because these topics are broad and noncontroversial I think more articles cover the topics. Blue Rasberry (talk) 20:02, 4 April 2014 (UTC)
Exactly. I would just use the one best consumer reports. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) (if I write on your page reply on mine) 20:48, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

/* Open Course Library (OCL) */[edit]

I'll put it under See Also -- ok?Researcherguy (talk) 13:26, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

Researcherguy "See also" works; perhaps "See main" is not right. I am not sure in this case. In any case Wikipedia only needs one discussion of the arguments about free textbooks; that may be ancillary to what you are doing or may be exactly what is discussed in that section.

Thank you for your invaluable input re Hirajas! Quite apart from the article and the news blurb, I now consider myself better-educated on the topic than I was this morning! smile

Balaenoptera musculus (talk) 19:02, 15 April 2014 (UTC)


Thanks for writing on my talk page. The idea of Abhishek is actually my idea! (I am sure that he will also accept it.) It came to existence when we were discussing about it once some time back. He has supported the idea, but the idea is mine :P. It is actually not that important whose idea because making it work is more important. I also have to accept that I am not able to give much time for it and I am expecting others to respond to it. Let see what happens. The texts are there on other websites now but they are .com websites.

The content is copyright free as per my knowledge so there shall be no issue to upload them on the servers of Wikisource which are more reliable in my opinion. May I request you to send your mail id? My mail id is Thanking you, Yours sincerely --Abhijeet Safai (talk) 06:56, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia Edit-a-thon[edit]

Hi Lane,

I saw you left regrets on the Wikipedia:Meetup/University of Delaware/April 2014 Colored Conventions page. We're sorry you won't be able to make it! I was wondering, though, do you have any idea how we could get an exemption from the 6-editor-max-sign-up rule for the event? We might have a bunch of people signing up for accounts.

AH UDelLib (talk) 18:11, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

AH UDelLib Hello. Have all of your event organizers (hopefully at least two people) request the Wikipedia:Account creator userright. People who have this userright can make accounts for other users one at a time through Special:CreateAccount. Historically this has worked for groups of up to about 30 people if two people process the accounts at about 2 per minute. It always helps to ask people to make their account before the event. Ask if you have other questions. Blue Rasberry (talk) 18:22, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

BMJ editorial[edit]

Congrats again, & yes please a copy. Thanks, Johnbod (talk) 18:32, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

Account Creator page[edit]

Hi there Bluerasberry; rather than talk to you in edit summaries I thought I'd let you know why I undid your edit. Near the top of the page the words "create accounts" is linked to Special:UserLogin on which there is a 'Create another account' button - arguably this should be changed to link to the actual account creation page that you linked to be fair. My main issue is that the section you added reads like instructions on how to use the Account Creator rights; which aren't actually for creating accounts, they're for creating multiple accounts or bypassing certain restrictions. The line you added makes it sound like it's for creating any account and that non-account creators can't create new accounts. I do, though, agree that there should be a link to the actual creation page, so I'm going to change the aforementioned link to be to the one you added. I hope this is a good compromise. Sam Walton (talk) 20:43, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

I am not sure. I posted a reply on that article's talk page. Perhaps we should talk there. Blue Rasberry (talk) 20:55, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
