Wikimedia Canada[edit]

Hi there! I'd like to invite you to explore Wikimedia Canada, and create a list of people interested in forming a local chapter for our nation. A local chapter will help promote and improve the organization, within our great nation. We'd also like to encourage everyone to suggest projects for our national chapter to participate in. Hope to see you there!--DarkEvil 17:11, 20 January 2006 (UTC)

Uploading pics[edit]

It's really easy to do. First look to the left hand collum of the screen. Under the searchbox is the toolbox. In the toolbox is the link "Upload file" From there Wikipedia gives detalied directions on how to upload pics and walks you through it.

Also, how did you take a pic from TV. That's something ive always wanted to do. I don't know how. Tobyk777 03:53, 14 March 2006 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for the comments on my page! It's nice to find other Canadians on here! Zenitram82 19:17, 21 June 2006 (UTC)

Asgard beams vs. rings[edit]

I'm pretty sure they said that they were trying to use the Asgard beams to beam through the Ori shields and it didn't work so they were going to try the rings next. Remember Chekov said "Beam the warhead to the ring room" or something like that, implying it was somewhere else which wouldn't matter for the Asgard beams but it would for the rings so they had to beam it to the ring room.

--Faris b 02:42, 1 August 2006 (UTC)

No, they beamed it to the ring room because Daniel Jackson theorised that they had a set of rings on the ship. The Korolev was destroyed before they could try, so Carter tried to ring a bomb aboard from the Ha'tak after finding the black box from the Korolev. This is the failure that needs to be mentioned because the Ori ship clearly dissarmed the bomb some how, not the fact that the Asgard beams could not penetrate the shields.(Grizzwald 03:21, 1 August 2006 (UTC))

Are we even on the same page here? I'm talking about the flashbacks during the beginning before the Korolev was destroyed. They tried asgard beams on the Ori ships. The Odyssey/Korolev tried the Asgard beams first and since it didn't work, the Korolev was about to try using the ring room for transporting a nuke onboard but they didn't get to try it. That is what I'm talking about, not at the end when they're on the Ha'tak with Bra'tac. I am 99% sure they mentioned trying Asgard beams before resorting to the rings.

I added your bit as well as mine so please leave it like that as I'm sure they mentioned the Asgard beams as well.

Hey[edit]

I just had to say something. How many 19 year old, military/political minded, Stargate nerd Wikipedians can there possibly be in Calgary? Seriously, nifty stuff. -b 05:54, 3 August 2006 (UTC)

I honestly don't know, but it's cool to know now that I'm not alone on Wikipedia! I honestly wouldn't be surprised if we were the only two Calgarians that are interested in that sort of stuff. For one, it's hard enough to find someone from Calgary who's interested in politics period, let alone on Wikipedia. (Grizzwald 15:48, 3 August 2006 (UTC))
Tell me about it man. You should e-mail your msn to me at wikipedianb@gmail.com. -b 03:36, 4 August 2006 (UTC)
'Cause public conversations are weird. And msn is fun. -b 03:48, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

Grammer?[edit]

I always find it humorous when people correcting grammar spell that word wrong in the summary. I don't mean to pick or be a jerk. Just pointing it out... ummm... to be a jerk. I've done it before too. Hope this doesn't affect your Wikimood. --Arch26 08:40, 20 December 2006 (UTC)

Ahh no it's ok, lol. To be honest, I had no idea it was spelled grammar, so I've already learned something new today. Thanks for pointing it out, cuz now I won't make the mistake again, hopefully. (Grizzwald 19:03, 20 December 2006 (UTC))

Calgary Wikipedia meetup[edit]

Just a reminder that the Calgary Wikipedia meetup is this Sunday, 2pm, at Haymarket Café (1101 Macleod Trail SE). —GrantNeufeld 03:27, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

Commons Seating Plan[edit]

I am widely aware of how the colours of seating plans work, and I would know because I created the images for all the seating plans, so I certainly don't need to be reminded. I must also take issue with your insinuation that I "tampered" with the image. All I did was change the seating to reflect the parliament seating when the 39th parliament first opened, and did so to match the image from the 2004 election which reflected the original seating of the 38th parliament. I changed the image because what was posted was simply wrong. I changed the colours because I liked them; if you took issue with the colours, you could have simply said so and I could have changed them. Regards MS123


Elite Force[edit]

You play Elite Force anymore?

no (Grizzwald 05:49, 3 May 2007 (UTC))
You should. It is fun. Get some EF 2 and join us on the servers. We all miss you.
Who are you??? (Grizzwald 18:00, 3 May 2007 (UTC))
Just a n00b who misses you.  :-(

Calgary Wikipedia Meetup[edit]

With the municipal election coming up, I figured it would be good to have another local meet of Wikipedia contributors in Calgary. This would be a chance to chat about Wikipedia stuff in general, but also to discuss ways to cover the election on Wikipedia. I’m suggesting next week, at a location (TBD) in the downtown area. If you’re interested in participating, please vote on when you’d like to schedule the meet. Thanks. —GrantNeufeld 22:00, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

Regarding Fact tag here...[edit]

... that was a mistake in readability. A reference further up in the paragraph explained that point, and I've fixed it. Thanks for the catch. Justin(Gmail?)(u) 19:02, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

40th Canadian Parliament[edit]

Hiya Grizzwald. I've applied the corrections. GoodDay (talk) 20:19, 29 November 2008 (UTC)

Canadian election diagram[edit]

Your Canadian election bar graph Canadian_federal_election_results.PNG on the List of Canadian federal general elections page is incorrect for 1980. The PC and Lib data are reversed. Take care. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.240.23.21 (talk) 11:13, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

Start and end dates of parliaments[edit]

Hi, Grizzwald. I noticed that you have been changing the start and end dates of parliaments to match the first and last sessions. Most sources that I've seen use the return of the writs for the beginning (which is quite a bit before the first session) and disillusion for the end (which sometimes matches the last session and sometimes is later). Either the session-based model or the writs-dissilusion model could be referenced, but we should probably agree on a standard for all of our articles and lists before you start making a lot more edits. —Arctic Gnome (talkcontribs) 23:59, 29 April 2010 (UTC)

I whole heartedly agree with that statement. However, before I started making the changes, I noticed that in the most recent Parliament pages, there was mixed usage, and when I was making the info boxes for the 30th through to the 36th Parliaments, I was using the convention of using the start of the first session, and then placing the end as the day before the start of the next Parliament's first session. However, being a Political Scientist, I know this was incorrect, and that in fact the Parliament ceases to exist upon dissolution by the Governor General, which is usually the last day of the last session. This is why I was going through and changing the ends of the Parliaments to match this. I shall note, however, that the Library of Parliament does cite that the start of Parliament is the day that the first session begins."39th Parliament".  (note the term) I will go through later today, or tomorrow to ensure that the dates I have listed as the end do match the date that is given by the Library of Parliament for dissolution.
