projector[edit]

Hello. When you create a new linear algebra article, could you add it to the list of linear algebra topics? Also, could you address the question I raised on the discussion page for projector (linear algebra). Michael Hardy 20:12, 17 Apr 2004 (UTC)

Jack rock[edit]

Hello, CyborgTosser. Noticed your inclusion of "jack rock" as a synonym for caltrop. This puzzled me at first, as I haven't heard this term before, and couldn't find it in any of my dictionatires. Further, I was initially unable to find any Google references that didn't derive from the article. However, I did eventually find CODE OF ORDINANCES CITY OF WASHINGTON, ILLINOIS. These are cirty ordinances for a small town in Illinois. Thus, the term is possibly a local Illinois usage? At present the description makes it appear as if "jack rock" is a common or widely known synonym, which I don't believe is correct. I wondered if you had any additional information on the distribution of this usage so we could clarify the point? Securiger 01:36, 12 May 2004 (UTC)

Well, I found something here: [1] Not excatly the same thing, but along the same lines. I know it's not just a local Illinois thing. I didn't grow up in Illinois and it's the only word I've heard to describe such an item in modern usage. I don't know where I first heard it, but when I mention it to other people, they seem to know what I'm talking about. As a side note, I've always thought of "caltrop" having a military (and usually somewhat archaic) connotation, whereas "jack rock" describes something a criminal might put in the road to slow down police.

Hi. Edits from 198.37.26.168 have now been reattributed to you. Regards Kate Turner | Talk 07:29, 2004 Sep 4 (UTC)

Your username[edit]

In case you haven't been following the discussion, I just wanted to make you aware that apparently some people find your username disturbing, due to an implication of which you were probably not aware. To understand why, take a look at the discussion about your nomination on Wikipedia:Requests for adminship. --Michael Snow 17:05, 4 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Sys-op nomination[edit]

I'm sorry to inform you that as there was no consensus on your becoming an administrator at the end of the one week voting period, I've had to remove your nomination. I hope you'll stand again when you have more edits, as that was the main objection given and I believe you would make an excellent administrator. Warofdreams 16:12, 10 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Don't be too dissapointed, you missed it by only a narrow margin. When you feel the time is ripe to try again, drop me a note on my talk page and I'll nominate you myself. (unless you turn into a vandal or something in the meantime ;-) Theresa Knott (taketh no rest) 19:53, 10 Sep 2004 (UTC)

I am disgusted at some of the reasons people gave to oppose your adminship. I encourage you to spend a month building up the "all-important" edit-count before reapplying. - Mark 12:35, 12 Sep 2004 (UTC)

I am disappointed as well, but I suppose I shouldn't be too surprised. Just a few months ago, the guidelines on the nomination page said 500-1000 edits, but I guess that's not enough for some people. CyborgTosser 19:17, 12 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Jimbo Visit[edit]

I will be at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign 23 October, 2004, speaking at the ACM Reflections | Projections Conference 2004 -

This conference runs from 22. - 24. October 2004; it would be fantastic to have a Wikipedia booth, if I can get volunteers for it.

Do you think you could come? Jimbo Wales 16:23, 19 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Admin nomination[edit]

If you want your nomination to go through, it might help to answer the "candidate questions" at the bottom, since non-response is being used against you. VeryVerily 23:30, 21 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I don't remember seeing this section of questions earlier and I think it was added fairly recently. [[User:CyborgTosser|CyborgTosser (Only half the battle)]] 00:12, 22 Oct 2004 (UTC)

I see you've just been promoted to admin. Congratulations. Use your new powers very catiously. Nearly everything you do can be undone with the exception of deleting images. There's no undo for them. What's more the link table is corrupted and some images look like they are orphans when they are in fact used. So be really really waring of deleting an image. Let me know if you need any help with anything while you find your feet. Theresa Knott (Not the skater) 08:29, 23 Oct 2004 (UTC)

RFC pages on VfD[edit]

Should RFC pages be placed on VfD to be deleted? I'm considering removing Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Slrubenstein, Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Jwrosenzweig and Wikipedia:Requests for comment/John Kenney from WP:VFD. Each of them was listed by CheeseDreams. Your comments on whether I should do this would be appreciated. - Ta bu shi da yu 03:30, 10 Dec 2004 (UTC)

It is my opinion that RFC pages are part of the history of the project that shouldn't be erased. They could prove useful in resolving further disputes with the user or similar disputes with other users. However, I don't really want to get involved in this as I haven't spent much time involved in RFC. [[User:CyborgTosser|CyborgTosser (Only half the battle)]] 21:41, 11 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Article Licensing[edit]

Hi, I've started a drive to get users to multi-license all of their contributions that they've made to either (1) all U.S. state, county, and city articles or (2) all articles, using the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike (CC-by-sa) v1.0 and v2.0 Licenses or into the public domain if they prefer. The CC-by-sa license is a true free documentation license that is similar to Wikipedia's license, the GFDL, but it allows other projects, such as WikiTravel, to use our articles. Since you are among the top 2000 Wikipedians by edits, I was wondering if you would be willing to multi-license all of your contributions or at minimum those on the geographic articles. Over 90% of people asked have agreed. For More Information:

To allow us to track those users who muli-license their contributions, many users copy and paste the "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" template into their user page, but there are other options at Template messages/User namespace. The following examples could also copied and pasted into your user page:

Option 1
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions, with the exception of my user pages, as described below:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

OR

Option 2
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions to any [[U.S. state]], county, or city article as described below:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

Or if you wanted to place your work into the public domain, you could replace "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" with "{{MultiLicensePD}}". If you only prefer using the GFDL, I would like to know that too. Please let me know what you think at my talk page. It's important to know either way so no one keeps asking. -- Ram-Man (comment| talk)

Image tag[edit]

Hi! Thanks for uploading the following image:

I notice it currently doesn't have an image copyright tag. Could you add one to let us know its copyright status?

You can use {{gfdl}} if you release your own work under the GNU Free Documentation License, {{PD-self}} if you wish to release your own work to the public domain, {{fairuse}} if you claim fair use, and so on. Click here for a list of the various tags.

If you don't know what any of this means, just let me know at my talk page where you got the image from, and I'll tag it for you. Thanks so much. Denni 04:23, 2004 Dec 13 (UTC)

P.S. You can help tag other images at Wikipedia:Untagged_Images. Thanks again.

thank you[edit]

Thank you for contributing so much to wikipedia.

I see some inconsistency between the mechanical equilibrium and the metastability articles, and I hope you could help me fix it.

I would tend to say that the

  • Second derivative < 0
  • Second derivative = 0

cases are *both* metastable, and the third case

  • Second derivative > 0

is stable.

However, my intuition is exactly the reverse of the mechanical equilibrium article.

The metastability article seems to say that *none* of these three cases qualify as metastable.

Retributive justice[edit]

In reference to the retributive justice article, do you have any more details about "the recent practical failings of restorative justice"? I am writing an article on restorative justice that will include 2001 stats from Department of Justice Canada showing restorative justice has lower recidivism than retributive justice[2]. Most of the data I have found (such as studies by University of Minnesota professor Mark Umbreit) show that restoration has better rates of victim and offender satisfaction as well. I will copy this message to the retributive justice talk page. Nathanlarson32767 (Talk) 19:34, 27 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Consonant articles[edit]

Feel free to plunge in and improve them in whatever way you see fit. In particular, a standardized way of dealing with examples is sorely needed. And by "standardized", I fully intend for English examples to be treated differently from other languages,this being the English Wikipedia and all. Best of luck to you. Nohat 06:49, 24 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Palatal nasal[edit]

I am reorganizing the sections on language examples in each of the consonant articles (trying to make them all fit the same format), and I noticed the English language example, canyon, you added on palatal nasal. Is that an Australian pronunciation? I'm not sure I've ever heard it pronounced that way (by the way, I'm from the US). I just wanted to make sure before I move things around. Thanks. CyborgTosser (Only half the battle) 10:18, 24 Jan 2005 (UTC)

That surprises me, because I watch American programs on TV (there are alot on our TV channels) and to me that's how Americans pronounce canyon, just as we do here in Australia. This is definitely a correct pronunciation (if not for North Americans) from both Australian & British dictionaries that I have. If your confused about the two different pronunciations, one is the broad transcription (between the slashes) and the other is the narrow transcription (between the square brackets). Could you give me an example of how Americans pronounce canyon from a dictionary using IPA? -- Kind regards, AxSkov 14:29, 24 Jan 2005 (UTC)
The changes you have made to palatal nasal are fine, but I should clarify something. The dictionaries I have, use the [nj] sequence for canyon in general, but they also say that the:
  • [ç] sound is similar to the first sound in huge, that is the [hj] sequence.
  • [ɲ] sound is an allophone of the [nj] sequence used in English, in words such as onion, canyon, etc.
    • If you say onion or canyon (with the primary stress on [k]) fast, you should get a sound very similar to [ɲ].
  • [ʎ] sound is an allophone of the [lj] sequence used in English, in words such as million, etc.
Do you mind if I restructure the sentence to say something like this:
In some dialects of English, the [nj] sequence is an allophone of the palatal nasal, as in onion (/ˈʌnjən/ or [ˈʌɲən]) or canyon (/ˈkænjən/ or [ˈkæɲən]).

wrong information in article[edit]

hi, i'm from the german wikipedia and there occured the same mistake like here with the german de:Ach-Laut. it's not a voiceless velar fricative, but a voiceless uvular fricative. i saw that you gave the information in Voiceless velar fricative and so i want you to correct it, please. not only this article, there are some other more. thanks, joni --213.209.67.141 22:39, 17 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Haben Sie ein Hinweis über Ach-Laut mit IPA (auf Englisch oder Deutsch)? Ich finde deise Seite, die sagt Ach-Laut ist wie "ch" in scottisch "loch", also [x]. Auch, UCLA Phonological Segment Inventory Database sagt Deutsch hat voiceless velar fricative. Danke, CyborgTosser.
i've found one:
on http://www.informatik.uni-frankfurt.de/~ifb/sw/ipa/ipauebersicht2.html you can find the following:
stimmhafter velarer Frikativ:
<hoch> [hox] süddt.Variaton (="dialect of people in the south of germany", not the standard [they speak very strange :P])
<Acht> [ˈaxt] süddt.Variation (="dialect of people in the south of germany", not the standard)
stimmloser uvularer Frikativ:
<Drachen> [ˈdʁa;χn̩]
----
"uvular" means "at the suppository/uvula/small plug" (whatever you understand, i don't know the right word, i mean the thing in the back of the mouth that hangs there like a drop) and if i speak a "ch" like in "auch", "machen" and "Bauch", i feel that this drop is in motion
thanks, joni --213.209.69.4 09:10, 19 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Sprinkles[edit]

I've been wanting to add to your lovely Sprinkles article for weeks, but since I'm pretty new here, and have only added to stubs, I thought it would be better-mannered to let you know in advance. A heads-down, in this case, to avoid nonpareils in the eye. I hope this meets with your approval.

fan of sprinkles, Mothperson 22:35, 18 May 2005 (UTC)

I do have a few ideas. I can't tell you precisely why, but this article is near the top of my top ten list of favorite Wikipedia articles. Don't let that worry you, though. I am not a nut. Okay, I am, but I am an educated nut with a good background in sugar. Thank you. --Mothperson 02:07, 19 May 2005 (UTC)

"parking structure"[edit]

Hello. You edits to parking cause me to wonder if you're from (a) California, or (b) elsewhere on the West Coast, or (c) somewhere else. Is "parking structure" a term you're accustomed to using, other than when you edit here? Michael Hardy 19:47, 24 May 2005 (UTC)

Da kine[edit]

Okay, I saw your request. I'll look at your article this weekend. ManoaChild 20:22, 9 September 2005 (UTC)

The article looks pretty good to me. I can't think of an example to add. Most of the examples that I can think of are trivial. The more interesting examples simply don't make sense when written, because the meaning is in the way that the word is emphisized. There may be something there: when "da kine" is used as an adjective or adverb, a lot of the time it doesn't add any meaning, but it acts as a word that can be emphisized, and it is the added emphisis that carries the meaning. ManoaChild 22:11, 12 September 2005 (UTC)

Water ionizer[edit]

Hi CyborgTosser, I'm not sure if you are aware, but there seems to be some "issues" at water ionizer. I thought since you are an admin, and have also shown interest in the article on the talk page, that you may be able to help. I originally RVed several edits from 84.92.207.141 that I suspected were made with a commercial interest in mind, but this seems to have escalated into an edit war. I am no longer sure that commercial interests are at the front, but the user appears adamant about the subject. There is some discussion on the talk page. I am not sure if I am being either too harsh or too lenient in my discussions, so I would appreciate any input. Thanks! -postglock 01:58, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

Seals on legal instruments[edit]

Thanks for the message! I am sadly swamped with reading and don't have any time to put into pleasure reading, even for Wikipedia. I would be more than willing, though, to help craft an article with my academic access to things like Lexis and a well-stocked law library. This is certainly an interesting topic, and a class I am presently taking, "Advanced Contract Theory Seminar," led me to a few interesting claims, including one made in the 70s by Grant Gilmore in his book "The Death of Contract" (among other places coming from other authors).

The idea is that consideration is a load of hooey that was invented sometime in the late 19th century to explain contract law as it had already developed by that point. It seems to me to follow that, as the seal is much older than such discussions of consideration, it could be that using a seal as a substitute for consideration was only a late 19th century explanation and, in reality, the seal itself existed to make agreements binding for a long time before the word "consideration" ever entered a court's opinion.

I don't know much about the reality of this, but I do remain fascinated by the history of it. Hopefully we can put something together that explains all this without falling afoul of the rules about original research. Ari 04:03, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

Sounds good. I'll be sure to watch your progress. Maybe I can follow some leads and figure things out. One of the books on my post-bar-exam "pleasure" reading list is a history of contract law that I haven't bought yet but hope contains more information on all this. Ari 19:36, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Religion in Futurama and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 22:44, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Da kine[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Da kine requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article consists of a dictionary definition or other article that has been transwikied to another project and the author information recorded.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. Cheers, Glacier Wolf 17:29, 20 April 2008 (UTC)

If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, then their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, 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. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 03:07, 18 May 2008 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice? Rockfang (talk) 03:07, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

Invitation to Meetup/Seattle6, a focus group[edit]

Hello. I'm part of a research group at the University of Washington (Seattle campus), and my group is reaching out to Wikipedians in the Puget Sound area. We're hosting a focus group designed to gather information on what Wikipedians would like to know about each other when interacting on Wikipedia. Our end goal is to create an embedded application that helps people quickly know more about others' history and activity on Wikipedia, and we feel our design will be much more useful if it's based on insights of users like you.

I'm hoping that the chance to help out local researchers, to engage in lively face-to-face discussion with other Seattle Wikipedians, and to contribute to Wikipedia in a new way will entice you to join us. The session lasts 2 hours and snacks are provided. Sessions will be held on UW Seattle campus - directions will be sent after registration. Your contribution will be greatly appreciated!

Willing and able to help us out? RSVP here. Want to know more? Visit our user talk page . Please help us contact other local Wikipedians, too! Commprac01 (talk) 21:48, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Sandwiches That You Will Like[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Sandwiches That You Will Like, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

no thrid party sourcing indicating this special is at all notable

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. -- The Red Pen of Doom 20:43, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
