Sustainability Science[edit]

I am happy to accept such a decision from an outside and objective observer. However, if you are suggesting that the Sustainable Development (as well as the sustainability science) article be effectively deleted and subsumed in the sustainability article then I question your judgement and request a second opinion. I would also appreciate an explanation of the criteria of merging or deletion that relate to "labelling" i.e. what is it about the "labelling" that is a problem. Granitethighs (talk) 00:36, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

Last call[edit]

I would really appreciate your attention to my final questions on the sustainability science talk page. I will then let the matter rest. Granitethighs (talk) 23:17, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

Have a good trip[edit]

Thanks for letting me know. I think the plan is clear for now; if nobody objects I'll just go ahead in the next few days and do it as discussed. — Sebastian 01:38, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

Sustainability Science[edit]

Happy 2009! I wonder if you could re-read the article on Sustainability Science. The case for removing the "Neologism" tag is now much stronger as a result of input from German editors who have had an entry on "Sustainability Science" in the German wikipedia for some time. Could you please let me know if you would be prepared to reconsider your verdict? Granitethighs (talk) 22:12, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

As usual, thank you for your considered reply. What you write all makes good sense to me. All I can say in reply is that, for better or worse, sustainability science is a discipline that is being taught in more and more educational institutions and discussed more and more in the literature. Yes, it certainly is ill-defined as clearly emerges from the article but this doesn't seem to deter people from engaging in "it". Here is a "definition" of "social science" on wikipedia:
"The word "science" is older than its modern use. Through the influence of positivism, the word has become a short-form for "natural science". It is a recent development that society has become the object of an organized body of knowledge which can be standardized and taught objectively, while following its own rules and methodology."
I could say "sustainability has become the object of an organized body of knowledge which can be standardized and taught objectively, while following its own rules and methodology."
Now someone might say that's all humbug but I think, as we discussed before, the acid test is the extent to which the term has application, and my side of the case says it sure does and, after all - what does a social scientist do? Does withdrawing your vote and asking for a tentative .... have any effect (I'm not sure how these things are done)? Good to have a chat again. Granitethighs (talk) 01:50, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
"Does withdrawing your vote and asking for a tentative .... have any effect" - That is the beauty of Wikipedia. Any policy I've read to date states that even in cases that appear to be "votes", few decisions on Wikipedia are made on a "majority rule" basis, which in normal circumstances would I'd imagine help prevent systematic bias in the encyclopædia, but in this case I suppose it just forces you to be bold and use your better judgement. There's nothing to stop it being put back in future if there is sufficient interest to argue it's case, so removing it wouldn't be too detrimental a move. olucideer 19:32, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

You maybe interested in the Article Rescue Squadron[edit]

Barnstar search rescue.png Hello, Lucideer. Based on the templates on your talk page, I would like you to consider joining the Article Rescue Squadron. Rescue Squadron members are focused on rescuing articles for deletion, that might otherwise be lost forever. I think you will find our project matches your vision of Wikipedia. Note:Keep in mind that Squadron members officially state they are not inclusionists. ~~~~

Linky Firefox Extension[edit]

"By the way, do you use Firefox? If so, Linky is an invaluable extension."

FYI, if anyone's using the Opera browser, the "Linky" feature is built in; this could be useful information for any Opera users looking to join this project (like myself), who may not be aware of the feature - it is not immediately evident in a default install, you have to right-click on a toolbar and go to Customise->Panels->Links to enable it.

lucideer 00:11, 16 November 2008 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Lucideer (talkcontribs)
Thank you for the information. I'll be sure to add this to WP:OTS and WP:LINKY. The Transhumanist    19:55, 23 February 2009 (UTC)


By the way, I have a question for you. Does the Opera Linky-like feature have a name? If so, what is it. "Links"? The Transhumanist    00:41, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

OTS team[edit]

If you'd like to join a team that makes extensive use of of the tools and techniques presented on WP:OTS, drop me a note.

We're currently working on the Geography branch of Wikipedia's Outline of knowledge.

See ya around.

"Linky" in Opera, and other comments on my talk page[edit]

Thanks for the comments. The Linky equivalent in Opera is part of Opera's "Panel" feature, of which Firefox's AIOS extension is essentially a clone. Opera's "Panel" is divided into 16 default sections or panels (and you can add your own custom ones) of which the "Links Panel" is one. The others are not unfamiliar: "Bookmarks", "History", "Transfers", "Windows", etc. - basic browser features. So Links is treated as such.

Also, not wanting to assume too much, but judging by your authored "howtos" on browser use, you seem like the type of Wikipedian to whom Opera would be well suited in general (sorry, shameless plug) - i.e. customisation for highly optimised efficient power-use. Have you tried it? Technically it doesn't have the potential for customisation that Firefox does with it's extension framework (as Opera doesn't really have one as such), but the extent of it's built in features and the extent of their customisability allow you to do so many things, some of which I'm sure noone has thought to make a Firefox extension for.

On joining the OTS team, I'm not sure how much time I'd have to dedicate - joined Wikipedia a few months ago after years of dedicated use (as a reader) with the optimistic hope of becoming a massive regular contributor - hasn't quite worked out due to various things but I'm still hopeful so if I find it (time) I'll definitely have a look in. Although geography is not my forte, any plans to move on to another topic soon, or are there multiple things being worked upon? ɹəəpıɔnı 02:12, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Pick a subject! Then check Portal:Contents/Outline of knowledge and Wikipedia:WikiProject Outline of knowledge. If your subject is there, develop its outline. If it isn't, then create an outline for it (they start off as drafts at Wikipedia:WikiProject Outline of knowledge).
The current team effort will probably take about another year (but we seem to be accelerating, so it might be less).
But I keep an eye on the whole Outline of knowledge as well. So if you start working on something, I'll be on hand if you need advice or assistance.

Opera Save as[edit]

In whatever version/build you use, visit any website, then go to File => Save as. Save in any format (HTML, MHTML, Text). You do have to manually type the extension right (extension isn't automatically added), what's the point of selecting "Save as file type"? If you go ahead and save without typing the extension, the file is saved extensionless and useless for double-clicking and opening). Now what if you have to save, say 100 pages? Such a fundamental usability bug when the browser is at version 10! That said, I agree this has no place in Wikipedia. I just wanted to confirm this behavior of Opera. - 221.128.201.176 (talk) 09:02, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

I have heard of this bug in some people's individual installations, but I have never experienced it in any version (I have never needed to type anything as you say). Either way, bugs that are not "by design", whether persistent or not, are not really suitable for inclusion in an encyclopedia article when describing how a piece of software behaves as this behaviour is not what the developer intended.
On another note, editing anonymously is ok, but it can get seriously frustrating when you're trying to communicate with other users. Could you please sign up for an account? ɹəəpıɔnı 22:49, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
Can you be more clear when you say you've never experience this bug? Meaning the extension gets added in your version of Opera? How about turning on/showing extension in "Folder options" and then try saving? How can a file save behavior vary across computers? :-) - xpclient Talk 16:25, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
I always have file extensions shown in "Folder options" on all my OS installations. Whenever I save a file in Opera the file extension does not show up in Opera's "Save as" dialogue window, but does get appended to the file automatically when I press the save button. I have used Opera since version 8.54 and am now using version 10 build 1139. This has always behaved this way for me on Windows 2000, Windows XP, Ubuntu, NOP Linux and now on Windows Server 2008. Hope that's clear enough.
Now this is definitely veering completely off topic for an encyclopedia related discussion, but in troubleshooting your problem, have you tried examining the file extensions listed in Tools > Preferences > Advanced > Downloads to see if the relevant filetypes might be missing extensions? ɹəəpıɔnı 17:02, 9 March 2009 (UTC)


Comparison_of_layout_engines_(Cascading_Style_Sheets)[edit]

If I remember correctly this were discussed on the talk page to one of the comparison articles. Don't remember which one and I'm not sure if it even were browser related. The general consesus in the end were to use the template tags in relation to the currently latest stable release and to put the first version were the relevant entry is fully supported as the text content. All the articles I've been editing so far appear to have followed this "de-facto standard".

"Relational Vibration"--need new term?[edit]

Editing Talk:Four-stroke engine (section)

"Relational Vibration"--need new term?

it looks to me from your user page you can solve the "problem "

Wdl1961 (talk) 16:28, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

Sorry I'm not entirely sure what "problem" you're referring to.
I replied on the Relational Vibration issue on the talk page. You read my reply? ɹəəpıɔnı 16:31, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
yes

i did not have a problem at all but just made the mistake to try to clarify the mess.

but only a one word ref will do according to some

i am just not smart enough to find it

Wdl1961 (talk) 16:43, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

the following is previous contribution that did not work

i give up and should have a long time ago

Wdl1961 (talk) 18:24, 7 July 2009 (UTC)


try tuned , coupled ,transmitted , oscillation, noise , critical frequency,vibration,

resonance,

coupling, every piece of machinery or computer i worked on/with had one or more of these and did not care about the label.
yuor computer has a relational frequency with the transmitter,eardrums?
also try classification,groups,classes,relations,concepts

Opera Unite edit[edit]

In one of your recent edits on the Opera wiki, you commented: "A missing comma is not cause to delete the entire thing." I just wanted to let you know that I did not delete that sentence; I just commented it out while cleaning up the section, since I couldn't figure out what it was saying. I just figured someone else who understood it would clean it up, and you did so.

Anyway, I just wanted to clear up any misunderstanding. Happy editing! :) Anunnakki (talk) 05:29, 14 December 2009 (UTC)

Apologies for the misunderstanding Anunnakki, it was quite difficult to tell who had removed/commented the sentence as it was changed in various edits over time, but you appeared to be the editor. Sorry about that. ɹəəpıɔnı 22:56, 15 December 2009 (UTC)

Sandbox page and projects[edit]

Dear Lucideer: Why is your sandbox talk page added to various projects? That is inappropriate because the project templates are for actual articles, while you should add your name as a member of each project through the appropriate process. You are therefore appearing inappropriately on project to-do lists, like this one. Please remove the project template tags from your sandbox talk page. Cheers. DOOMSDAYER520 (Talk|Contribs) 01:56, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

Sorry about that Doomsdayer, I have absolutely no clue how that got there. History page tells me I added it last march using a User Script located here - perhaps it was a bug in the script at the time, though I don't even remember ever enabling that (unless it's in account options or some such).
Either way - I'll blank the page. ɹəəpıɔnı 16:42, 28 January 2010 (UTC)
