Hello, welcome to Wikipedia. I saw your note on User talk:209.221.24.9. If you'd like to assign the edits you made from that IP to your account, just drop a note at Wikipedia:Changing attribution for an edit.

Here's some tips:

  • 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. 12:36, Feb 18, 2004 (UTC)


I liked the additional info you added about Paczki, tho it left me struggling with my dim brain for a while to remember the word "pirogi" and mull both long enough to convince myself that one was not just a word for the other.

The system says you created Paczki from the mis-spelled Packzi by a cut and paste. This is not the procedure we hope for, bcz the history of the article prior to the move is now fairly hidden "under" the redirect you edited the bad one into.

If you'll click on the "Move this page" link that appears on most pages, you'll see a good bit of info on how to do it without this side effect. The fix for the current situation is to delete the new, good one, to make room for Move this page to transfer the history of Packzi to the name Paczki, where your new and improved text can then be edited on top of the old content. But i'm pretty sure only a sysop can get rid of Paczki, and have asked Angela to do so.

Just in case she does so before you read this, here's your latest version:

Pączki (pronounced poonch-key) is a Polish pastry that is much like a jelly-filled doughnut. It is a common treat eaten on Fat Tuesday in Polish communities in Michigan and Ohio. The traditional pączek (singular) is filled with prunes instead of lemon, bavarian cream, or raspberry, as is common today; prune packzi are still popular, though.

The reason for making pączki is that all the lard, sugar, and fruit in the house would need to be used up before Lent.


I'm leaving a note for User:Angela, requesting the deletion. IMO it'd be good experience for you to see the preferred way work, so once she (or another sysop, if you arrange that) has done the delete, i urge you to use Move this page, from Packzi, to finish the job. (You can edit in the markup text i copied above, either before or after you do the move, so that it gets your sig in the history.)

If she hasn't already done it, she might be waiting for confirmation from you, or you might choose to request the deletion from someone else & get it out of the way; if you do, i'd let her know to avoid confusion and duplication of effort.

Oh, and i broke the redirect to make Packzi more accessible. Perhaps you already know 3 ways to get to it if i hadn't done that; if not drop me a note & we'll discuss. [smile]

Keep up the good editing! --Jerzy 10:39, 2004 Feb 25 (UTC)


User:Angela has done some magic, beyond what i anticipated, and actually merged the two histories; she shows as the last to edit, but you show as the first to create the current text and she shows as merely "reverting to" your text (i.e., as having merely restored your work). So there's no good opportunity to try out the Move this page operation.

(Well, actually, there is: this situation is the unique one the Move this page text discusses, namely Packzi is a "historyless redirect", and anyone can move Paczki to it, and anyone can then move it back to Packzi, with the two adding up to mutually cancelling Move this page operations; the only sign of having done a full cycle would be a change in the time-stamp of the final historyless redirect that results.)

Wish i knew how to wish you a Polska happy Mardi Gras, but thanks again for your edits. --Jerzy 16:21, 2004 Feb 25 (UTC)


Hi GusGus, don't worry about the page move as the two versions have been merged together now, but in future, as Jerzy explains above, it's best to use the move this page link to move a page. This preserves the page history. Wikipedia:How to rename (move) a page has more information if you need it. Angela. 20:30, Feb 25, 2004 (UTC)


Thanks, folks. I never noticed the "move this page" link until now.

GusGus 20:59, 2004 Feb 25 (UTC) ::
No, of course you didn't; i recall overlooking it for a long time even after i had read Wikipedia:How to rename (move) a page, until the day i had a situation that demanded a move. Checking out, e.g., Special pages took me longer, and you know what? I think i should have some idea what is behind the Contact us link, when i finish this.
But you wrote me
Hey, thanks for the "move this page" info. You folks are a lot nicer than I expected! ...
Wow, what a lucky guy you are, you caught me on a good day! [wink]
But seriously, two slogans are
Edit boldly
and
Don't bite the newbies.
Everybody here has been a newbie, and besides, nobody's going to edit boldly if biting of colleagues comes easily.
In any case, follow the links to do research on how things work, and ask questions; i'm often on for hours a day seven days a week, and a good question is a nice change of pace. [smile] --Jerzy(t) 00:11, 2004 Feb 26 (UTC)

I've never seen the distance formula given in terms of a, b, c, and d, only in x_0, y_0, x_1, and y_1; if that form is standard, though, please replace it

It really doesn't matter, theoretically, it could be (ζ, γ) and (ο δ) if you want...a, b, c, d seems like it would show up in algebraic context (e.g. verifying field axioms of complex numbers), while the way you have it probably more common for distance. Revolver 08:35, 1 Mar 2004 (UTC)

What a mess have you produced!  It seems that you simply have a bad browser (or perhaps bad fonts).  In Unicode, combining diacritics are always added after the main character, and never before it. — Monedula 17:18, 22 May 2004 (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)


Thank you! :) Dysprosia 08:27, 8 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Nickelback[edit]

You were wondering about the two Nickelback songs that sounded the same. They are "How You Remind Me" and "Someday". If you really want to hear how they are similar, search google or your favorite P2P program for "How You Remind Me of Someday", which plays both songs, one in the left channel and the other on the right.

Fair use rationale for Image:GCRTA.svg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:GCRTA.svg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. 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 any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

File:Emergency broadcast system.ogg needs authorship information.[edit]

Dear uploader:

The media file you uploaded as File:Emergency broadcast system.ogg appears to be missing information as to its authorship (and or source), or if you did provide such information, it is confusing for others trying to make use of the image.

It would be appreciated if you would consider updating the file description page, to make the authorship of the media clearer.

Although some images may not need author information in obvious cases, (such where an applicable source is provided),authorship information aids users of the image, and helps ensure that appropriate credit is given (a requirement of some licenses).

If you created this media yourself, please consider explicitly including your user name, for which:{{subst:usernameexpand|Gus Polly}} will produce an appropriate expansion,

or the {{own}} template..

If you have any questions please see Help:Image page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 08:54, 14 May 2011 (UTC)
