Hello, welcome to Wikipedia. Here's some tips:

  • If you made any edits before you got an account, you might be interested in assigning those to your username.
  • You can sign your name using three tildes, like ~~~. If you use four, you can add a datestamp too.
  • If you ever think a page or image should be deleted, please list it at the votes for deletion page. There is also a votes for undeletion page if you want to retrieve something that you think should not have been deleted.
  • If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question to the village pump or ask me on my talk page.

Other useful pages are: how to edit, how to write a great article, naming conventions, manual of style and the Wikipedia policies.

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Angela. 08:30, Feb 15, 2004 (UTC)

Thanks. —Fleminra 22:41, Jul 30, 2004 (UTC)

In response to a topic concerning Igor Gamow[edit]

You said:

Has Mr. Gamow been un-fired by CU? He does not seem to be in the staff directory. Here is a reference for “In the spring of 2004, the University of Colorado at Boulder fired Dr. Gamow for moral turpitude”, which was removed by User:Caciss. —Fleminra 03:30, 9 March 2006 (UTC)

The information found on him, including his personal site, mentioned he taught at Colorado. However, if it's to the contrary, be welcome to revert it. -Devin

question[edit]

i was wondering what the "ru...." stuff was that you added to the bottom of the American Bulldog page is... Lachatdelarue 14:17, 4 Aug 2004 (UTC)

That's a link to the Russian-language version of the American Bulldog article. Take a look on the left side of the screen, where it says "other languages." Unfortunately, it shows up as a string of entity references in the "Edit" view of American Bulldog because the English-language Wikipedia is encoded in ISO 8859-1, which is not able to represent Russian (Cyrillic) letters. Many non-English Wikipedias are encoded in UTF-8 to deal with this. I believe en.wikipedia.org plans to convert to UTF-8 at some point (as did de.wikipedia.org a few days ago).

Hyphenated compound adjectives[edit]

Hi, I have responded to your question on my talk page.

Hi Fleminra. Edits from your IPs have now been reattributed to you. Regards Kate Turner | Talk 06:28, 2004 Sep 5 (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)

ISO 8859-1[edit]

Hey, thanks for your note. There are two reasons for replacing the ISO 8859-1 characters with the HTML versions of the same. The first reason has nothing to do with Wikipedia and everything to do with me: The bot has trouble properly handling anything other than 8-bit ASCII characters. The second reason is because I was under the impression that using 7-bit/8-bit ASCII + the HTML entity references was the idea solution because the HTML is browser independent. I've been doing this translation for a very long time, even before I knew that the rambot had trouble with the non-ASCII characters, because of discussions a long time ago of what was preferred. Now maybe there has been some decision that I was not aware of where this was changed, but I was under the impression that it was best to be as browser independent as possible and use the HTML. If I am wrong, well then I can look at trying to update the bot to improve this. I use a number of different browers (IE, Netscape, Firefox, Konqueror) in a few different platforms (various Windows versions, Linux), and they don't all handle characters in the same correct fashion. Anyway, I'm open to trying to figure out how to use non-ASCII characters with the bot if I was wrong about my assumptions about which of the two is best. RM 17:00, Dec 20, 2004 (UTC)

After your response, I will look into updating the bot to improve it if possible. Later! RM 16:19, Dec 22, 2004 (UTC)

AOPA[edit]

Fleminra: how am I to make notice that it is copied from the AOPA website? I did make some changes to the text to take out 1st person POV and remove some unnecessary information. Is there a standard way of citing an external source that has given permission? bDerrly talk contr 12:11, 4 May 2005 (UTC)

Satellite weight[edit]

Agree with you completely regarding the weight issue in the SPACEWAY-1 article; if anyone knows how much the things weighs, it would be the manufacturer or the company that launched it into orbit ... and they both put "13,376lbs" and "6080kg" in their press releases. The paragraph in question was transferred from the Zenit rocket page after some very heated discussion on its talk page. --Kralizec! 11:57, 29 May 2005 (UTC)

MTSAT[edit]

Nice extension of the MTSAT page. Thanks. Zeimusu | (Talk page) 13:47, August 15, 2005 (UTC)

MaraDNS and DNS over TCP[edit]

Thank you for paying attention to the various minority DNS servers out there, including my humble offering.

I'm just letting you know that MaraDNS now has support for DNS over TCP. See this page for all of the details.

As it turns out, Mara has had this support since early 2003; the support did not become part of the stable branch until late 2005 because too many features were added before Mara was re-declared stable. I have since changed the release schedule to minimize the kinds of delays. Samboy 23:29, 22 January 2006 (UTC)

OK, thanks for the update. I'm using NSD right now, but to be honest, I haven't the faintest recollection of why I switched from MaraDNS. I think I suspected it might use less memory (I'm renting a 64-MB [unixshell.com] VM). —Fleminra 07:47, 2 February 2006 (UTC)

Boston Market Confusion[edit]

Thank you for pointing out my Boston Market Edit. I'm not sure quite how I did it, but I reverted back to an older edition with a minor edit. More details are on my talk page. Thanks for catching that. Cliffb 01:06, 24 January 2006 (UTC)

Apache[edit]

Thanks for your remark. I only changed the infobox and I didn't even read the article. If you know why the history page seems to say otherwise (or am I not reading the history correctly?), could you please explain me how that could have happened? That would be very helpful, because I feel quite uneasy about this. My edit to the infobox is very recent, and I'm absolutely sure I didn't change anything else. Of course, that also means that, as fas as I'm concerned, you can revert anything you want. Oh, and I changed the infobox because it was spanning the entire width of the page because of some strange syntax. I wrote about that in the infobox comment. You can change that as well if you want to. Thanks! --Michaël 07:06, 26 January 2006 (UTC)

Tiny web servers[edit]

The linking you did on tiny web servers is somewhat counterproductive. Most of the links just redirect back to tiny web servers. The page is essentially a device to consolidate enough of these stubs that they can be kept off of AFD (most of the programs were one line stubs frequently nominated for deletion). I know it wasn't intentional but you have created a great deal of circular redirection. :) --Darkfred Talk to me 19:48, 8 February 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the HeadsUP in the BCC article[edit]

Thanks for the heads up in the BCC Fun Facts article.

Bureaucratic noise[edit]

A tag has been placed on Terra Soft, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article seems to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable, that is, why an article about that subject should be included in Wikipedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not assert notability may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, and if you can indicate why the subject of this article is notable, you may contest the tagging. To do this, please add {{hangon}} on the top of the page and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm its subject's notability under the guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. StoptheDatabaseState 23:32, 15 December 2006 (UTC)

Terra Soft[edit]

Regarding Terra Soft. Very nice addition! However.. the article is marked for speedy deletion and I think you should flesh out the article a bit, and perhaps bring your own motivation to why the article should be kept. I tried my best, but another voice, especially from you would probably be a good thing. -- Henriok 11:16, 16 December 2006 (UTC)

It seems like they will keep it. If you don't qontinue writing on it, I will. You are welcome to add to it in the future of course. Thanks for the initiative! -- Henriok 19:16, 20 December 2006 (UTC)

DMSP Article[edit]

Thanks for your comments- actually I *am* the author of the page listed. I noticed that Wikipedia has gotten more usage in the public eye than my webpage on satellites. Since I'll be phasing out some of my pages, I thought the information should go *somewhere* TDRSS TDRSS 21:41, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

Bug and issue trackers[edit]

Hi,

thanks a lot for creating the Comparison of issue tracking systems page! I'd be interested in your opinion concerning my suggestion of accompanying it with an aspect-oriented sibling (e.g. concerning workflow, mail integration etc., whatever someone looking for a tracker might want to know. --Tobias 16:48, 27 April 2007 (UTC)

I think the proposed information and format would be useful. Though frankly I'm a bit disillusioned with Wikipedia's limitations when it comes to dealing with large volumes of semi-structured data like this. I patiently await the Semantic Web. —Fleminra 08:37, 28 April 2007 (UTC)

Alex Spade 19:59, 19 May 2007 (UTC)

Regarding these images, I can offer no defense. I got them from the English Wikipedia, where it appears they have since been deleted (I suppose due to their license). So I suppose they should be deleted from the Russian Wikipedia as well. Regards, Fleminra 22:28, 20 May 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:GOES logo - SSLoral.svg[edit]

Dear Fleminra,

as per Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 832017 , aka "Service overview and network port requirements for the Windows Server system", SSDP uses ports 2869 and 1900. 2869 is for SSDP event notification, while 1900 is for SSDP other uses.

There's even an SSDP legacy event notification, at port 5000.

All the best,
