License tagging for Image:UH88Stars640x480.jpg[edit]

Rollin C Thomas[edit]

A {{prod}} template has been added to the article Rollin C Thomas, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice explains why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may contest 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. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. 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. If you endorse deletion of the article, and you are the only person who has made substantial edits to the page, please tag it with {{db-author}}. Fredrick day 23:09, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

UNICPOLOS[edit]

Yes, it would certainly be worth-while to add a section on UNICPOLOS to United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. Sounds like you are just the guy to write it. It is certainly about to become very topical - see http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2007/sep/22/oilandpetrol --Red King 23:32, 26 September 2007 (UTC)

It's been nearly 5 years since your suggestion, and I haven't gotten around to it yet... I'm about to attend UNICPOLOS for the eighth year in a row (geez, I'm getting old) so I will have to see if I can come up with something this year. Dan (talk) 08:43, 28 May 2012 (UTC)

Footnotes[edit]

Hi,

Thanks for your work on the smoking ban page. Two ways to show footnotes in the preview: obviously they show up if you edit the whole article - but I think you can also include the code <references/> at the end of the section you're editing to check they look okay. Obviously remove it before you save the page, though! Nmg20 (talk) 14:40, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

Question on usage of Mauna Kea photos[edit]

Dear mr. Birchall,
Just for sure, may I ask you attention for a question I asked on page [[1]]?
Thank you very much in advance.

Indeed[edit]

I would never call myself "hardcore"; for a hardcore wikipedian, one should turn to Gary King for example. I've seen your page before, actually. Probably should have thought of asking you *facepalm*. Anyway, Iridia told Sandy that the Observatory section needs work, and promptly went on travel, leaving me with an empty bag of air with a hole in it. Comments would be appreciated: I'm sure a telescope technician's comments on his own observatory carry mighty weight =) Cheers, ResMar 02:13, 27 September 2010 (UTC)

...The FAC nom is here. ResMar 02:14, 27 September 2010 (UTC)
I have responded: thanks =) ResMar 00:31, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

Wonderful sleep-aid for insomniacs[edit]

Added a link to Royal Society MP3 recording of Dr. Othman's talk.

This could be sold as medicine! : ) Viriditas (talk) 08:49, 7 October 2010 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Tuberculosis, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Wired (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Disambiguation link notification for October 10[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Minamata Convention on Mercury, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Chiba (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
