Hello Eyreland, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay.

Here are a few good links for newcomers

Reviewer granted[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

For the guideline on reviewing, see Wikipedia:Reviewing. Being granted reviewer rights doesn't change how you can edit articles even with pending changes. The general help page on pending changes can be found here, and the general policy for the trial can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Dabomb87 (talk) 02:49, 4 September 2010 (UTC)

Copying[edit]

Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you copied or moved text from Geology of Australia into Volcanism of Australia. While you are welcome to re-use Wikipedia's content, here or elsewhere, Wikipedia's licensing does require that you provide attribution to the original contributor(s). When copying within Wikipedia, this is supplied at minimum in an edit summary at the page into which you've copied content. It is good practice, especially if copying is extensive, to make a note in an edit summary at the source page as well. The attribution has been provided for this situation, but if you have copied material between pages before, even if it was a long time ago, please provide attribution for that duplication. You can read more about the procedure and the reasons at Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia. Thank you. Deor (talk) 11:42, 10 May 2012 (UTC)

Llano Uplift[edit]

LLano area

Back in May you modified Llano Uplift with an infobox, and included the shaded relief map I made for the article for the geologically related Marathon Uplift. Do you know much about the LLano Uplift? I'm working on a similar shaded relief map for LLano, and I'd appreciate any suggestions. An incomplete draft copy is at right.

I don't see in this map the twisted ridges found in the Ouachita Mountains, at the Marathon Uplift, or in the Solitario. I believe I have the right area -- it corresponds to that shown at http://uts.cc.utexas.edu/~rmr/images/Llanomap.pdf and http://geology.uprm.edu/Morelock/thcgeol.htm. I guess that feature may not be so pronounced here. I'd appreciate any suggestions on what would make a good map for this article.

Thanks. --Kbh3rdtalk 04:07, 6 August 2012 (UTC)

Llano Uplift geologic map v1.jpg
Thanks for your feedback. I changed directions and made a geologic map showing the age of the surface rocks. There are things about this map I don't like, such as the legend and color scheme, so I might redo it "some day". In the meantime, I think it contributes to the article. --Kbh3rdtalk 06:01, 8 August 2012 (UTC)

How to deal with copy/paste from pubic domain sources[edit]

I'm just going to copy what Moonriddengirl said about this: "In accordance with Wikipedia:Plagiarism, it is perfectly all right to copy from public domain sources as long as the copying is explicitly acknowledged. Copying without that explicit acknowledgment constitutes plagiarism. I would recommend, when you copy extensively from public domain sources, acknowledging what you are doing in the edit summary, but what is required is a note or attribution template indicating where the material came from and that the material is copied. The attribution template for that source is {{NPS}}. I place these in the top of the reference section. Alternatively, he can cite the source for each passage and place this template in the citation:{{PD-notice}}. There are advantages and disadvantages to each approach. I myself would recommend an inline citation to the source but the use of the first template. If he uses the in-citation template, the template may disappear if somebody rewrites those specific sentences, not realizing that other passages are copied as well. I prefer the in-citation template where only a few sentences are copied and each is explicitly identified to the source or where multiple PD sources are copied and annotated."

I've restored the text with the tempate. Dougweller (talk) 12:55, 1 February 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for May 30[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Minimal instruction set computer, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page CISC (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.

Base26[edit]

Please add discussion about the general state of the article at the designated page Talk:Base26. I don't know about its orphanhood specifically, but I do know that it's currently in a very unsatisfactory state. AnonMoos (talk) 13:21, 25 June 2014 (UTC)
