I've moved the content you created to Student research observatories from the Talk: namespace. Does this have potential to be encyclopedic? --Christopherlin 17:55, 4 March 2006 (UTC)

Bogotá enclave[edit]

According to the maps on the Bogotá, Capital District page, the Capital District is not an enclave of Cundinamarca Department. Are these maps incorrect? --Lasunncty 16:02, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

I thought they were, but I have just confirmed that this is not the case - I was confusing the urban area of Bogotá with the whole of the Capital District. --Fibonacci 00:47, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

Image source problem with Image:Orbit1.svg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading Image:Orbit1.svg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 03:01, 10 October 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page.

Finishing Brazil anytime soon?[edit]

Are you going to do the mesoregions and microregions for Sergipe, São Paulo, and Tocantins any time soon? :) Rarelibra (talk) 23:43, 23 January 2008 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

Forwarding what I left on the wrong person's talk page - he thinks you set up the chart or display of solar system objects. Sorry I am not ever going to be an adept wiki-editor. Forwarded text:

help for the color blind or red-insensitive

I ran into your nice work on the sizes of bodies in the solar system. List_of_Solar_System_objects_by_radius [1] I cannot, however, read what appears to be red lettering on black on the black-background figure near the bottom. Red looks almost black to me. I do not know how to edit art work. Perhaps you could change the red to yellow, white, light blue, or orange. (violet would not work either). I can, of course, see the red-on-white. It looks like black-on-white so I almost did not finish saving this! The title beneath the figure with red on black is "A relative comparison of some of the mid-sized bodies in the Solar System." Thanks Carrionluggage (talk) 02:33, 27 February 2008 (UTC) Thanks Carrionluggage (talk) 19:45, 27 February 2008 (UTC) Thanks very much - the orange works.Carrionluggage (talk) 22:40, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

Malaysian border lengths[edit]

Hi, thanks for the querry. I obtained the lengths from various local sources, such as the Malaysian Natural Resources and Environment Ministry's website and a conference paper on Malaysian boundaries presented by an officer of the Malaysian Mapping and Survey Department. I have linked the sources as footnotes in the relevant border pages. Just click the corresponding country name and it will link to the relevant border page eg. Brunei will bring you to Brunei-Malaysia border page. Cheers. Slleong (talk) 17:01, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

Glossary of graph theory[edit]

Wow, the sentence you deleted was part of the original version of that article, when there was only one example graph. The other examples were only added about six weeks ago. How do you think we should handle the numerous other references to "the example graph" still left in that article? Perhaps labeling the graphs as example 1, example 2, etc? --Lasunncty (talk) 00:29, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

Hm, indeed... I'm opposed to numbering graphs, because the numbering gets incorrect as soon as somebody adds a new one, and it's nightmarish to change each reference every time this happens. However, I believe all references are about the first graph in the article. Maybe we should title it as "reference graph" and replace all occurrences of "in the example graph" by "in the reference graph". Let's continue this on the talk page of the article.

License for Image:Netball court.svg[edit]

Your Image:Netball court.svg
Move to commons representation

The image Netball court.svg is a candidate to be copied to the Wikimedia Commons. When you uploaded this image, you licensed it for use under the GNU Free Documentation License (GFDL). On behalf of the Wikipedia and Commons communities, thank you. However, the GFDL requires that reproductions of the image (and any other GFDL-licenced works), must be accompanied by the full text of the GFDL. The GFDL is intended more for documentation and not images, so downstream re-users may be hindered by additional restrictions of the GFDL which may not work well on the use of one image.

Before I copy this image to the Commons, I wanted to ask whether you would be willing to multilicense your work under an additional license, such as a Creative Commons licence. Creative Commons licences, such as the Attribution Share-Alike license provide a similar copyleft permission to the GFDL, but without some of its requirements such as the distribution of the licence text. All you need to do, is place the additional license tag alongside your current license. Users can choose between which one they want to use the image under. There are many free licenses accepted on Wikipedia and Commons which can provide freedoms similar to the GFDL, but without some of its requirements.

You are under no obligation whatsoever to alter the license. Doing so merely cooperates with those members of the community who believe that multilicensing your work can ease the reuse of images outside of Wikipedia.

If you use a GFDL license tag which requires distribution of Wikipedia's general disclaimer (indicated by "Subject to disclamiers" in the template), it is also suggested that you switch it to one which does not apply them.

It is also strongly advised, to update to the 1.3 version of the GFDL.

Whether or not you choose to dual-license your work, thank you for your consideration.

Please also see Wikipedia:Copyrights and Wikipedia:Moving images to the Commons for more information.

POWOK to POWH[edit]

I saw your moves of Prince of Wales-Outer Ketchikan to Prince of Wales-Hyder, and after investigating, found a detailed explanation here, in case you've not seen it before. Big question: do you have any idea how much has been annexed? Any idea if we could find a map of the area as it is now? Thanks for observing this change and making the necessary moves! Nyttend (talk) 05:20, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the map links — talk about high-quality maps! Sorry for the confusion over Metlakatla and Meyers Chuck: I hadn't paid attention to the new map and thus didn't notice the should-be-obvious Metlakatla enclave. As for Meyers Chuck, the explanation is more detailed: see Talk:Meyers Chuck, Alaska. Nyttend (talk) 14:48, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

Alaska maps[edit]

Yes, I can update those maps. I see how the Unorganized Borough map needs to be updated, but what needs to be changed in the Yakutat map? --​​​​D.B.talkcontribs 15:31, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

Both the Unorganized Borough map and Yakutat map are up. I took liberty of also fixing the Valdez-Cordova Census Area map. --​​​​D.B.talkcontribs 16:12, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

Why did you revert my change[edit]

Can you explain why you reverted my change in Extreme points of the United States?

Your comment says it is not redundant, but it clearly is. If it is not redundant then the two statements:

  • highest town with permanent residents above 10,000 ft
  • highest town with permanent residents

would have different answers. They do not.

For example, consider the entry for Mt Whitney:

  • highest point in the 48 contiguous states

Is “48 contiguous states” redundant? No, because the answer would be different without it.

As an aside, I realize my correction was flawed, because I did not include the necessary qualifier “in all of U.S. territory”. That qualifier is needed, as there are towns with permanents residents at higher altitudes. In fact, if you can convince me that your proposed qualifier is needed, we still need the qualifier in all of U.S. territory”.

Let’s resolve first why you feel the need for the qualifier “above 10,000 ft”.Sphilbrick (talk) 13:37, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

Merge tags[edit]

I'm sorry, I misread the history. I was under the impression that Lumos3 placed them and then realized that the article was not what he thought it was. --Lasunncty (talk) 21:49, 19 January 2010 (UTC)
Does it matter? The article is in such poor shape. Why do we have a short subtopic separate from its short parent topic? Viriditas (talk) 22:17, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

Re: locator map[edit]

the old locator map did not work correctly at longitudes near 180 so I had to manually move the coords around until they showed up in the correct place. If you want to change them, I don't really mind. Thingg 21:39, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

Inquiry on Software Used to Create the File "orbit1.svg"[edit]

Dear Lasunncty,

Can you please specify what software you used to create the orbit1.svg? [It is one of the best descriptional figures for orbital elements!] And if the originally saved format is not svg, is it possible to ask you for it?

[I thought about making some additions for my class lecture notes.]

Thank you!

David. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.138.54.197 (talk) 19:14, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

Thanks, David! I actually wrote the code myself, based off the older files orbit.png and orbit.svg. To view it before uploading, I used Sketsa.
As far as getting the file in another format, you can download a png version directly from the image page: orbit1.svg. If that's not what you had in mind, let me know. --Lasunncty 02:43, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

Qal'at Ja'bar / Tomb of Suleyman Shah[edit]

Hi. Sorry for my removal; hadn't seen there was a historical section. I updated the entry with what I know, which is not much as this whole issue is very sketchy; it's hard to find reliable sources. -- Zoeperkoe (talk) 20:38, 12 November 2010 (UTC)

And another thing; the Tomb of Suleyman Shah still is an exclave, AFAIK. So in the way the entry is phrased now, it can still be in the list of current exclaces. It's just that the people who put the articles on the tomb and the castle really made such a mess out of it that it was really confusing. So, to clarify, the Tomb of Suleyman Shah is still an exclave (or whatever is the correct name for something like this); Qal'at Ja'bar is not (see the latter for more details). Hope this helps! -- Zoeperkoe (talk) 20:49, 12 November 2010 (UTC)

List of countries by length of coastline[edit]

I noticed that you have remove dependencies from the ranking. May I know why? Could you add them back? (By 'dependencies' I of course don't mean to include places like Antarctica.) 119.237.156.46 (talk) 05:42, 22 October 2011 (UTC)

I excluded them from the ranking mainly because I thought it was more appropriate to include only the independent countries. After all, the page title is "List of countries..." (Regardless, perhaps it should be renamed.) If you think it is a big deal, we could open it up for discussion on the talk page. Some other country lists include the dependent territories in the ranking, some do not, and some have no ranking at all, so that doesn't help in terms of consistency. May I ask why you think they should be included? --Lasunncty (talk) 09:49, 24 October 2011 (UTC)
Countries aren't sovereign states per se I'm afraid. And the English language wouldn't have two words for no reason. A way out would perhaps be two columns, one for all countries ranking, the other solely for sovereign states. 119.237.156.46 (talk) 17:37, 17 November 2011 (UTC)

File:WallpaperP3M1.GIF needs authorship information[edit]

Dear uploader:

The media file you uploaded as File:WallpaperP3M1.GIF 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|Lasunncty}} will produce an appropriate expansion,
    or use the {{own}} template.
  • If this is an old image, for which the authorship is unknown or impossible to determine, please indicate this on the file description page.

Administrative Region (Federal District)[edit]

Hi! Actually I will expand the article soon, with more material from the portuguese wiki (which need some cleanup and expanding by itself, but still). I believe the article is necessary, and should stand. The existence of RA's is controverse, since the citizens of the cities, some with more than 200.000 habitants, have no elected representants, and a lot of people want to chance that; but it's difficult since it's a "stone clause" that can be changed only by a Constituent Assembly. There is some resemblance with the District of Columbia voting rights, (with much less political mobilization, but there is some). Also, the info of the list can be found in the {{Administrative Regions of Federal District, Brazil}}. Regards ZackTheJack (talk) 14:26, 27 July 2012 (UTC)
