Speedy deletion nomination of Discrete exponential function[edit]

Hello Garfield Garfield,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Discrete exponential function for deletion, because it doesn't appear to contain any encyclopedic content. Take a look at our suggestions for essential content in short articles to learn what should be included.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Karlhard (talk) 19:00, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

Welcome to Wikipedia. You've been working a lot on the Discrete exponential function article. How do you feel about merging its content into the related article Modular exponentiation? See also Exponentiation by squaring, which covers much of the same material too. Ideally we would end up with one article per topic, rather than several articles on a single topic.

Foot locker protocol[edit]

This is very interesting, but it's not an encyclopedia article, because it involves original research, and is not tertiary. Do you have access to ArXiv? That might be a better place to post your new ideas. Bearian (talk) 15:46, 2 October 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Anecdotes on Mathematicians[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute to Wikipedia, introducing inappropriate pages, such as Anecdotes on Mathematicians, is not in accordance with our policies. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. The page has been nominated for deletion, in accordance with Wikipedia's criteria for speedy deletion.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Nomination of Anecdotes on Mathematicians for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Anecdotes on Mathematicians is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Anecdotes on Mathematicians until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Kinu t/c 22:40, 4 October 2014 (UTC)

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 UGM-27 Polaris, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Westinghouse. 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.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 08:46, 10 October 2014 (UTC)

Summaries[edit]

Hi there.

When editing an article on Wikipedia, there is a small field labeled "Edit summary" shown under the main edit box. It looks like this:

Edit summary (Briefly describe your changes)

 

The text written here will appear on the Recent changes page, in the page revision history, on the diff page, and in the watchlists of users who are watching that article. See m:Help:Edit summary for full information on this feature.

Filling in the edit summary field greatly helps your fellow contributors in understanding what you changed, so please always fill in the edit summary field. If you are adding a section, please do not just keep the previous section's header in the Edit summary field – please fill in your new section's name instead. Thank you. --Dodi 8238 (talk) 15:14, 31 October 2014 (UTC)
