Your RFA[edit]

Best wishes for your RFA -- Tinu Cherian - 12:05, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

re: Please be careful[edit]

I did try to find a mention of the relevant line on the talk page before I reverted, but couldn't find any. Could you point me to the discussion in question? Thanks! --ThaddeusB (talk) 20:53, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

Talk:Sarah Palin#Moose! doesn't specifically mention the 3am line and most everyone seems to be talking about the moose burgers line as it is referenced specifically several times. I don't really care much about either line, but personally they both seem to add *something* to the article. I mean the first one shows a certain dedication and such and the second forms a picture of who she is. In any case, I don't see how the talk can justify the removal of first line since it isn't at all clear that anyone realized that is what you were talking about.

Re:Review[edit]

Thanks for the review. I will see about using edit summaries more often, though I believe not every edit needs one. Yes, a few of my mainspage edits are templated, but they are basically stub creations, with a cited source. <bragging>However, they are not my only mainspace work. On the Nepal side, I rewrote Sandhikharka from a stub to a decent C-class article and a DYK. In fact, I have 46 of them, and I plan to pursue updating that section if I become an admin. I am also involved in the FA/GA area. I rewrote Lazare Ponticelli from a stub to an FA. Mary Meader, 1992 Nicaragua earthquake, Hell's Gate National Park, 2002 Bou'in-Zahra earthquake, Félix Houphouët-Boigny (collaboration with User:Nishkid64), and Jean-Hilaire Aubame are the GAs that I wrote/rewrote/collaborated on. 2002 Bou'in-Zahra and 1964 Gabon coup d'etat, both of which I created, are at FAC.</bragging> Anyway, thank you for your suggestions! --I'm an Editorofthewiki[citation needed] 10:50, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Hey there Danielfolsom, I am just doping by to let you know that I have added another question to your RfA. Take your time answering, and best of luck. Cheers, Tiptoety talk 04:49, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:WebKitss.png)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:WebKitss.png. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' 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 "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 05:27, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

Safari screenshot[edit]

There are a number of problems with your screenshot.

Your screenshot is of a web browser. WebKit is not a web browser. Given that WebKit is used as the layout engine in a number of very different platforms, giving a screenshot of one possible platform is not really helpful.

The ratio of width to height of your screenshot is messed up. The width and height appear to have been changed independently of each other.

Normally screenshots of web browsers should show the Wikipedia front page (see Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, etc). Your screenshot doesn't.

If we wanted to show a screenshot of Safari on this page there are already a number of Safari screenshots available.

AlistairMcMillan (talk) 02:23, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

Please read http://webkit.org/blog/101/back-to-basics/ if you don't believe me that your screenshot is of Safari. AlistairMcMillan (talk) 02:27, 5 September 2008 (UTC)
Please look at Trident (layout engine), Tasman (layout engine), Gecko (layout engine) and Presto (layout engine). We don't have screenshots on layout engine pages. There is no point, all you end up with is a screenshot of browser chrome and website content. You can't take a screenshot of a library. Please stop wasting both of our time on this. AlistairMcMillan (talk) 19:03, 5 September 2008 (UTC)
You said "I mean if you're really that worried about the chrome I could crop it out ..." What would be the point of that? All you'd be left with is a screenshot of a web page. AlistairMcMillan (talk) 19:11, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Hello! I just wanted to pass along my thanks for your support in my RfA from earlier this week. I hope I did not disappoint you. I am going on Wikibreak and I will let you know when or if I am back on the site -- I am trying to take time away to clear my thoughts and refocus on this and other priorities. Be well. Ecoleetage (talk) 04:47, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

RFA 2[edit]

Your 2nd RFA has been closed as unsuccessful. I suggest you work on the issues raised and try again in the future. Thank you for your interest. RlevseTalk 23:35, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Bot rename[edit]

Hi Daniel, I was talking with a crat at my talk page User_talk:MBisanz#Janna_BOT.3F and they were confused by the name of your Danielfolsom2 bot account. Would you be willing to accept a rename on it to include the term "bot" somehow so people aren't as confused in the future? Thanks for your time. MBisanz talk 00:45, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

RFA: User:Danielfolsom[edit]

Support - A hard-working editor with 7177 edits, including 2488 mainspace edits. Have seen him around WP, and I would trust him with the tools. If he decides to run again, and he should, he can rely on my support (unless he plans to blank the mainpage, become a vandal, or abandons the ways of the Jedi :P).

Cheers mate!

Check the contributions?[edit]

I'm sorry, but it shouldn't be necessary to check your contributions to find out where you moved large amounts of information to. It should be made evident in the article, not a guessing game or checking your contributions. Checking your contribs might work in the first part, but not weeks and months down the road. That is why I reverted it and why I don't believe the revert was inappropriate. Niteshift36 (talk) 12:36, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

  • Actually, I am of the opinion that you should have placed a redirect in the article itself, not just the edit summary. In any case, the revert wasn't done lightly. You removed a large amount of information and didn't say where it went to. That isn't reverting on "instinct". You somehow want to place the blame on me for the fact that you didn't do an informative edit summary or at least give other editors the courtesy of leaving a note on the talk page telling them where all the information went to. Niteshift36 (talk) 23:10, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Who removed it isn't the point. The fact that it was removed and nobody bothered to take the time to let the rest of the world in on their little secret about where they moved it to is the point. I've said what I have to say. Happy editing. Niteshift36 (talk) 12:59, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

Could you clarify?[edit]

In this edit, the section in question is fairly well-cited. Could you consider replacing it with inline {{fact}} tags for the material you feel needs citations? Daniel Case (talk) 00:07, 18 April 2009 (UTC)


Request to participate in University of Washington survey on tool to quickly understand Wikipedians’ reputations[edit]

Hello. I'm part of a research group at the University of Washington. In April, we met with some local Wikipedians to learn what they would like to know about other editors’ history and activities (within Wikipedia) when interacting with them on talk pages. The goal of those sessions was to gather feedback to help design an embedded application that could quickly communicate useful information about other Wikipedians. We have now created a few images that we feel represent some of what our participants thought was important. We would appreciate it if you took a few minutes of your time to complete an online survey that investigates whether or not these images would be useful to you. Your quick contribution would be very valuable to our research group and ultimately to Wikipedia. (When finished, the code for this application will be given over to the Wikipedia community to use and/or adjust as they see fit.)

Willing to spend a few minutes taking our survey? Click this link.

Please feel free to share the link with other Wikipedians. The more feedback, the better! The survey is completely anonymous and takes less than 10 minutes to complete. All data is used for university research purposes only.

Thank you for your time! If you have any questions about our research or research group, please visit our user page. Commprac01 (talk) 00:24, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

spotlight[edit]

Hiya,

Some users have decided to try and relaunch WP:SPOTLIGHT. I've helped out a bit; hope I'm not 'treading on any toes' here; it just seemed like the best approach was to simply give it a try - hence changing the project page around, and starting to work on an arbritrary article.

If you want to get involved, please do so. I will let the other previous 'coordinators' know too. Cheers,  Chzz  ►  16:38, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
