Hey, I saw your comments on the delayed sleep phase syndrome page about DSPS and vitamin b-12. I have the same problem with severe DSPS/non24 sleep/wake phase syndrome. Anyways I was wondering what type of vitamin b-12 you used and whether you had to continue taking the b-12 after the initial few months to maintain the benefit? Thanks.

Fomenko[edit]

Hey Itinerant, I wanted to thank you for reverting Franck Ver Stut's recent changes to the New Chronology (Fomenko) article. Since I know that you are sympathetic to Fomenko's ideas, I was impressed that you did this. A problem with articles about people like Fomenko, whom most people view as a crank, is that it can be hard to provide "both sides," because those who hold to traditional chronology generally haven't seen fit to discuss his work. I hope that the New Chronology article can provide as much accurate detail as possible about Fomenko's theories without also being an unbalanced piece of pro-Fomenko advocacy. Anyway, thanks again for the revert. john k 18:34, 17 July 2005 (UTC)

Image:Fomenko - Roman Empire parallelism.jpg[edit]

Dear Itinerant,

I would like to notify you on the new version of Image:Fomenko - Roman Empire parallelism.jpg you have contributed. I assume you made the image yourself, so please indicate so at the image page and add an appropriate copyright tag. In this case, {{PD-self}} (indicating that you release the image into public domain), {{no rights reserved}} (indicating that you allow anybody to use your image as they see fit), or {{GFDL-self}} (indicating that you allow the image to be used under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License) would be appropriate.

Page name for temperature articles[edit]

To avoid flip-flopping between 'degree Fahrenheit' and 'Fahrenheit' or 'degree Celsius' and 'Celsius', I propose that we have a discussion on which we want. I see you have contributed on units of measurement, please express your opinion at Talk:Units of measurement. Thanks. bobblewik 22:09, 12 February 2006 (UTC)

Invitation to join Wikipedia:WikiProject Eastern Orthodoxy[edit]

Hi there! I've noticed that you've edited articles pertaining to the Eastern Orthodox Church. I wanted to extend an invitation to you to join the WikiProject dedicated to organizing and improving articles on the subject, which can be found at: WikiProject Eastern Orthodoxy. This WikiProject was begun because a need was perceived to raise the level of quality of articles on Wikipedia which deal with the Eastern Orthodox Church.

You can find information on the project page about the WikiProject, as well as how to join and how to indicate that you are a member of the project. Additionally, you may be interested in helping out with our collaboration of the month. I hope you'll consider joining and thank you for your contributions thus far! —A.S.

neutrino oscillation[edit]

Your recent change to neutrino oscillation was marked "makes more sense?". I am not sure whether it does and it sounds like you are not either. I would suggest not making edits unless you are sure it's an improvement. --Strait 23:13, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

Regarding edits made during November 8 2006 to Brian Bilbray[edit]

It might not have been your intention, but your recent edit removed content from an article. Please be careful not to remove content from Wikipedia without a valid reason, which you should specify in the edit summary or on the article's talk page. Take a look at our welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. Glen 04:42, 8 November 2006 (UTC)

Flags[edit]

Medieval cuisine up for peer review[edit]

Greetings and all that!

I'm working on getting the article up to FA-standards and your input would be much appreciated. Don't be shy now. Any and all comments (or criticisms) are beneficial.

WP:AIV[edit]

Thank you for your recent posting of an anonymous editor to Administrators intervention against vandalism. In the future though, when reporting IP addressed to WP:AIV, please make sure that they have had a final warning in the recent past. Due to the nature of IP addresses, spans of time between edits may indicate different users. Being it is possible that the currently vandalizing user did not get a true final warning they are often not be blocked. To remedy this, please make an effort to ensure that all vandals reported to WP:AIV have an appropriate, and recent, final warning. The most common final warnings are {{test4}} or {{bv}}. If you have any questions regarding this, please do not hesitate to ask me on my user talk page. Thanks again!-- Chrislk02 (Chris Kreider) 19:54, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

Sops and frumenty for all![edit]

At long last, the long-overdue nomination of medieval cuisine as an FAC is under way. You are invited to grab your fill of potage, quince pie, a subtlety worthy of a pope, and all the beer you can drink! Oh, and don't forget to make a few comments while you're digging in...

Axxn 06:43, 24 March 2007 (UTC)[edit]

Hi.... Can you please explain how to calculate Children/woman? (In Demographics of Russia). Also how you counted the mixed people (For eg: Ukanian/Russian, Belarussian/Russian , say the women will enter their ethnicity to be Ukranian/Belarussian, but that of their children to be Russian.)

Axxn 07:15, 24 March 2007 (UTC)[edit]

Thanks for replying.... Although I don't know any Russian it doesn't matters.... I learnt the cyrillic script when I was 6 years old.... At the time of USSR.... There was a publication called Soviet news or something like that.... In it there was an article to help people learn Russian.... I tried a bit... then gave up.... It is a very difficult language....

Thanks for CDT - related theories[edit]

I'm glad you added the new section in Causal dynamical triangulation and got rid of the old Discrete Lorentzian entry. It needed a space for comparisons, so kudos to you. I cleaned it up a bit, but more is better, in this case.

Thanks - JonathanD 03:35, 27 April 2007 (UTC)

Secondary sources[edit]

Hello there. I have reverted your undo on the 675 page due to incorrect source information. Please check out the policy on original research and how it defines a secondary source:

*Secondary sources draw on primary sources to make generalizations or original interpretive, analytical, synthetic, or explanatory claims. A journalist's analysis or commentary of a traffic accident based on eye-witness reports is a secondary source. An International Herald Tribune analysis and commentary on a United Nations Security Council resolution is a secondary source. An historian's interpretation of the decline of the Roman Empire, or analysis of the historical Jesus, constitute secondary sources. Wikipedia articles should rely on reliable published secondary sources. This means that we present verifiable accounts of views and arguments of reliable scholars, and not interpretations of primary source material by Wikipedians.

Sport Rider and Motorcyclist are most definitely secondary sources according to this definition. The only way we could present the primary source (manufacturer claimed info) is if we can find reliable secondary sources that will back up the claims. I've just done a quick look at other sources and they all claim approximately the same info as SR and MC. I you disagree, let's discuss to avoid the possibility of an edit war. We can request advice from an admin on this issue if you would prefer. Thoughts? Roguegeek (talk) 02:36, 16 June 2007 (UTC)

I have a couple of points and questions from your last comments:
  1. Can you explain why you consider publications like Sport Rider and Motorcyclist are primary sources and not secondary sources? From my point of view, it seems very clear they are secondary sources due to them (1) not being the manufacturer themselves, (2) don't use first-hand material, (3) are offering original interpretation through editorials in their reviews, (4) do their own analysis through product reviews in their publications, and (5) present their own claims of the subject in question. The actual means of their testing, whether it's to a certain standard or not, don't have any weight on defining what kind of source they are classified as.
  2. Even though it doesn't have any bearing on defining source, are you able to identify a source that shows how Sport Rider and Motorcyclist take their measurements? I just want to make sure what you are claiming is true.
  3. Are you just disagreeing with weight claims or is it horsepower/torque claims as well? I'm asking because you didn't make mention of it in any comments yet and I was simply not sure.
Respectfully, Roguegeek (talk) 19:03, 16 June 2007 (UTC)

NPOV[edit]

Information.svg Please do not add commentary or your own personal analysis to Wikipedia articles, as you did to Circumcision. Doing so violates Wikipedia's neutral point of view policy and breaches the formal tone expected in an encyclopedia. Thank you. -- Avi (talk) 15:42, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Edit summaries[edit]

Hi, could you please use edit summaries? You made some big changes at Malthusian catastrophe, but didn't explain what you were doing. This creates a lot of work for other editors who then have to check everything you did, rather than skim it to make sure the summary matches the edit.

Original research[edit]

I've reverted your edits at Pharaohs in the Hebrew Bible as they appear to be original research. Please read WP:NOR and WP:VERIFY. Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dougweller (talkcontribs) 10:30, 24 April 2011 (UTC)

And again, still original research[edit]

Again, please read WP:OR - this is synthesis, building an argument from sources which do not mention the subject. And the Ancient Hebrew site is a personal website run by someone who says that their occupation is engineer and writer and their education "some college", which fails our criteria for sources at WP:RS. Dougweller (talk) 05:47, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

You do flatter me by suggesting that I could possibly do original research in such a densely researched area, but I fail to see which of the claims in my edit you consider original or even synthetic. Itinerant1 (talk) 06:28, 25 April 2011 (UTC)
Any use of a source that doesn't specifically discuss the subject of an article is original research by our policy. Dougweller (talk) 14:04, 27 April 2011 (UTC)

Actinide[edit]

Thank you for you addition to actinide and other elements articles. However, please site reliable references. Unsourced edits tend to be removed. For example this borders to speculation - many researchers should have had minute amounts of plutonium, but either were not looking for it or could not detect it technically.

Shakespeare Authorship Question[edit]

I just saw one of your comments. I am replying here rather than cluttering up the talk page with unnecessary detail. You wrote "It's not WP:SYN or WP:OR because the essence of the claim is contained in the Graham Phillips reference. The rest of it is just backing the claim with various other references." If you are backing the claim with the evidence used by Phillips, then, no, it would not be SYN or OR, but it would still not be acceptable because Phillips is clearly an unreliable source. If you are looking for your own evidence to support Phillips's claims, then yes, it is OR. It would be OR in those circumstances even if Phillips were a reliable source, since you would be providing new arguments to support his position. Paul B (talk) 17:31, 6 June 2011 (UTC)

License tagging for File:EverestAscents.svg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:EverestAscents.svg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information.

To add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia. For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 09:05, 18 October 2011 (UTC)

Standard refs[edit]

Thanks for taking an interest in medieval cuisine and for adding referenced info to the article. However, do you think you could follow the existing standard of references used in the article? Right now, the refs you've added lack very important information, like whether the sources are articles or books, print or online. Page references might be useful (though admittedly not necessary if the reference is to a shorter article).

I don't mind helping out with conversion of notes to shorthand notation and of standardizing in general, but it would be very helpful if you could supply all the relevant data.

Missing edit summaries[edit]

Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. Before saving your changes to an article, please provide an edit summary, which you forgot to do before saving your recent edit to Argentine economic crisis (1999–2002). Doing so helps everyone understand the intention of your edit (and prevents legitimate edits from being mistaken for vandalism). It is also helpful to users reading the edit history of the page. Thank you. --Jetstreamer (talk) 12:52, 29 November 2011 (UTC)
