Clipper chip[edit]

Hi Loadmaster, have you seen WP:RED? This redlink already exists - see WP:REDYES. I understand by your comment [1] that you consider redlinks never acceptable. Can you explain? Thanks Widefox; talk 22:10, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

(Ref: Clipper Chip edit)
Apologies. No, I had not seen WP:RED; I was simply going off of numerous edits I've seen in the past that removed redlinks. Also, I was in vandalism-removal mode, so perhaps I was a bit overzealous in "correcting" edits. Feel free to revert. I am a bit confused, though, when you say that the redlink already exists; where is it? Do you mean at Skipjack (cipher) and LEAF? — Loadmaster (talk) 18:33, 7 January 2014 (UTC)
That's OK. Yes at Skipjack (cipher), the dab just mirrors the article(s) so doesn't count. I've come from cleaning up the dab, so I had to make a decision as to the redlink being worthy. You may want to spread the word about not removing worthy redlinks, maybe revisit them? Regards Widefox; talk 00:28, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

IBM Floating Point Architecture[edit]

You reverted my changes in the article.

Please read the 1. Reference in detail IBM System/360 Principles of Operation, IBM Publication A22-6821-6, Seventh Edition (January 13, 1967), pp.41-50

on page 42 first sentense is: "A number with zero characteristic, zero fraction, and plus sign is called a true zero.

The definitions like NAN and INF may be not in the original IBM/360 Design. But in the latest at the IBM/390 Design these values are defined. Because of this article is about the "IBM Floating Point Architecture" these values are relevant.

Wingsofcourage (talk) 16:20, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

The differences between IBM and IEEE floating-point formats are mentioned in the lede and at the end of the article. The article specifically discusses the IBM S/360 floating-point format (see the first sentence of the lede), which does not have representations for infinity and not-a-number values. The comparisons to IEEE in the article, as well as the mentions of the other formats supported by IBM hardware, are sufficient to cover this point. — Loadmaster (talk) 18:16, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
This article is used in several other pages. In my eyes makes sence to describe in this article, that the support for floating point numbers have changed over time. Or do you think this should be reflected on an other page ? Wingsofcourage (talk) 16:49, 25 February 2014 (UTC)
Feel free to make any text clearer. Just be sure to keep the distinction between the older IBM S/360 FP formats and the newer IEEE formats. But I still think that the "IEEE 754 on IBM mainframes" section is enough. — Loadmaster (talk) 22:18, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Great Smokies Wildflower Pilgrimage[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Great Smokies Wildflower Pilgrimage requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organized event (tour, function, meeting, party, etc.), but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

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. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.

Hello, Loadmaster. You have new messages at Talk:Amelia Bedelia.
Message added 01:25, 30 July 2014 (UTC). You can remove this notice at any time by removing the {{Talkback}} or {{Tb}} template.

While this whole thing is fairly amusing, WP:BLP prevents us from claiming someone was editing drunk without proof. I've redacted part of your comment, as the reporter only states she was "stoned". Thanks. 9kat (talk) 01:25, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
