Trigun[edit]

Please see the No Personal Attacks policy yet again. I happened to be the author of that section you deleted on Wolfwood and Vash's relationship. I'm not a "silly yaoi fangirl," I happen to be a man who's been in this fandom since 2003, has watched the anime, has read the manga, and happens to know what I'm talking about. Just because YOU think the idea of the couple being implied as being in love is stupid and yaoi-fangirlish doesn't mean they can't be. With lines like "I want to spend my tomorrows with him," I'd say the burden of proof is on you to show WHY they are just friends rather than delete without as much as participating on the talk page.

Needless to say, I'll be reverting your edit now.

I put the screencap you wanted on the Trigun page if it helps you. In Defense of the Artist 04:11, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

Blood in Zelda TP[edit]

Hi ForestAngel,

I'm not sure what the reason was for outburst on the Twilight Princess talk-page, but please be polite.

I agree that the rating is kind of stupid, since there is no (noteable) blood in Twilight Princess, but it is not our task to take sides. ESRB made that decission, stupid or not, and Wikipedia only notes that is is rated T for that reason. Any other comments on it shouldn't be on the page, and I am glad to see that they aren't.

Happy editting!

Weasel words on Slipknot (band)[edit]

I saw your weasel word tag on the Slipknot article, and I was wondering: where are these weasel words? I couldn't find them myself, and therefore removed the tag. If you could point out the weasel words, I would gladly reword. --Wildnox(talk) 02:29, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

Double Dollars[edit]

Please leave the $$ sign after the numbers. In the opening sequence of the anime, the Wanted poster flashes on the screen several times. When it does so, the dollar signs are after the number. I have the boxed set of DVDs and can take a screenshot and include it in the article if that's what it takes to convince you. ++Arx Fortis 17:16, 10 July 2007 (UTC)

The poster you keep citing is marketing material, not the anime series itself. Show me a screen shot from the anime itself and I'd be open to discuss it further. Otherwise, I think the screen shot now shown on the article pretty much settles it. ++Arx Fortis 04:40, 28 July 2007 (UTC)
Look...
1) You're taking this all WAY too seriously/personally. Your lengthy, hostile, eratic diatribes don't help your position. They simply call your rationality into question. Please lighten up.
2) Like I said above, if a screenshot with the format you mention can be found, it can be discussed further. The main topic of the article is the anime series itself, not the mass of English (or other language) websites that discuss or mention Trigun. You keep bringing up points that have nothing to do with the subject of the article itself.
3) By your logic, we should be changing "iles" to "miles" and "yarz" to "yards" because that's the way we do things in the real world. Trigun is not real-world.
4) Trigun is a Japanese anime with post-airing translations into several languages, of which English is only one. The actual name of the first episode is THIS...a Japanese phrase. I can't speak for the marketing department and translation/caption people who aren't consistent with the content of the series. It wouldn't be the first time a marketing department or Japanese to English translator got something wrong. (many examples)
5) If you can find a screenshot, great. Otherwise, I don't wish to discuss it further. ++Arx Fortis 07:04, 28 July 2007 (UTC)
"In your face," you say? How mature.
I'm sure you're aware Uncyclopedia is intended as satire and, thus, is hardly a credible source. It casts doubt on the veracity of the screenshot. The DVD does not display it the way you've shown.
From your most recent posts, it is has become very obvious that you are quite immature and cannot engage in considerate, meaningful debate. Do not engage me directly any further. Keep future debate on the article's talk page. ++Arx Fortis 15:56, 28 July 2007 (UTC)

I agree, mostly[edit]

This article really does need a rewrite. My biggest concern is that there are quotes from questionable research presented as if it is widely accepted in the scientific community. Would you like to help out in making this article more scientifically honest? Jmm6f488 07:39, 4 August 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Nomura's jellyfish.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Nomura's jellyfish.jpg. 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. BetacommandBot 18:04, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

User page[edit]

Strike-through textWould you care to remove the mention of my name from your user page? Per WP:NPA, "comment on content, not on the contributor" and per WP:CIVIL, "Wikipedians define incivility roughly as personally targeted behavior that causes an atmosphere of greater conflict and stress. Our code of civility states plainly that people must act with civility toward one another". I'd rather you reverted yourself than I did. Thanks. Zunaid©® 09:42, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

Hi. I've removed my name from your user page, I hardly think striking it through does the job. Zunaid©® 10:52, 27 November 2007 (UTC)

Liberal media[edit]

I can't speak for all who use the term, but I'm good friends with some people who work for Pat Robertson's Christian Broadcasting Network and I thought I'd try to put things into perspective for you after reading your thoughts on Talk:Homosexual agenda. In many countries the government-run media try to directly influence citizens' thoughts. The way some people see the "homosexual agenda" is that those who control the media promote secularism. It's not as much about hidden forces beyond our control as simply a cultural struggle. As homosexuality becomes more socially acceptable, they use the term "homosexual agenda" or "pro-gay agenda" in the same way you might use the term "right-wing agenda" or "Fundamentalist agenda". Hopefully that made sense - sorry for ranting. :) Thompsontough (talk) 23:53, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

Adult Swim task force[edit]

You seem to be interested in Adult Swim, and I would appreciate if you would collaborate on it at the task force, found here. - The New Age Retro Hippie used Ruler! Now, he can figure out the length of things easily. 23:13, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

Well, unfortunately, I've been getting wrapped up in other articles so I've been neglecting this project somewhat. I reckon the best one to start with would be Aqua Teen Hunger Force, as it is the longest running and oldest of all AS shows. - The New Age Retro Hippie used Ruler!

An algebra over a field has THREE operations[edit]

I was wondering if the definition at the beginning be simplified for non-math majors. I found a very nice and simple definition that explained the definition of an algebra perfectly: A set together with a pair of binary operations defined on the set. Usually, the set and the operations include an identity element, and the operations are commutative or associative. Nice, plain English. Start talking about the Ks and As in the next section, not the first definition. It's quite intimidating. ForestAngel (talk) 01:43, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

That's not right. You have to have not only the ring structure (a set with two binary operations obeying certain algebraic laws) but also the vector-space structure (where the addition in the vector space is the same as the addition in the ring, but you've also got multiplication by scalars). So it's really three operations:
(1) addition,
(2) multiplication of two members of the algebra, and
(3) multiplication of a member of the algebra by a scalar.

Samurai cinema[edit]

I undid your correction on Samurai cinema less because it is wrong than because it is not a minor edit. It is a much more complicated point that deserves expanded argument and references. For the time being, I think the swashbuckler reference should remain, first, because the sentence is about swords, and second, because Douglas Fairbanks swashbuckler films were a definite influence on the development of chanbara in the 1920s.

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being 'minor'. The only thing that's changed is that you will no longer have them marked as minor by default.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. If you are familiar with the contents of WP:MINOR, and believe that it is still beneficial to the encyclopedia to have all your edits marked as such by default, then this discussion will give you the details you need to continue with this functionality indefinitely. If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 18:26, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Survey[edit]

Hi ForestAngel!

I have put together a survey for female editors of Wikipedia (and related projects) in order to explore, in greater detail, women's experiences and roles within the Wikimedia movement. It'd be wonderful if you could participate!
