Editor review[edit]

Hi,

I came across your editor review. Do you intend to transclude it to the main page to get some reviews, or can it be deleted? Best wishes, – How do you turn this on (talk) 15:23, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

your sig is broken[edit]

Hi, I saw a post of yours on the help desk. your sig is broken. The part that should link to your talk page (here) doesn't work. Ling.Nut (talkWP:3IAR) 03:19, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

Hi from Mike S.[edit]

Your User: page looks kinda cool, like, with all the little items about stuff like "drinks water", and "has no understanding of time and does everything at the last minute", and "identifies with hacker culture", etc. The little icons are kinda cool too. Just saying. --Mike Schwartz (talk) 03:05, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

McEliece[edit]

Hi Melab-1, I know that the Handbook states "at most t ones", I said as much on my comment on the articles discussion-page. However, in the papers that I read regarding the attack on the system the authors assume that the error-code has exactly t ones. I then reread the linked/cited paper by McEliece and found the quote "of length n and weight t". A vector only ever has weight t if it contains precisely t ones. I don't want to rollback the article just to spite you, I'd rather convince you of my position and hope you will re-edit the article yourself. Wishing you all the best.

Block[edit]

File:Orologio rosso or File:Orologio verde DOT SVG (red clock or green clock icon, from Wikimedia Commons)
This blocked user's unblock request has been reviewed by an administrator, who declined the request. Other administrators may also review this block, but should not override the decision without good reason (see the blocking policy). Do not remove this unblock review while you are blocked.

Melab-1 (block logactive blocksglobal blocksautoblockscontribsdeleted contribsabuse filter logcreation logchange block settingsunblock)


Request reason:

My ISP recently switched IPs and the one assigned to me right now is blocked could you please unblock my the IP address as my account itself User:Melab-1 is not blocked. Thank you.

Decline reason:

Clearing an autoblock

Due to the nature of the block applied we need additional information before we can decide whether to unblock you. It is very likely that you are not personally blocked. If you are prevented from editing, it may be because you are autoblocked or blocked because of your IP address. Without further details there is nothing further we can do to review or lift your block. Please follow these instructions:

  1. If you have a Wikipedia account, please ensure that you are logged in.
    Your account name will be visible in the top right of this page if you are.
    If it isn't, try bypassing your web browser's cache.
  2. Try to edit the Sandbox.
  3. If you are still blocked, copy the {{unblock-ip|...}} code generated for you under the "IP blocked?" section. This is usually hidden within the "What do I do now?" section. If so, just click the "[show]" link to the right hand side to show this text.
  4. Paste the code at the bottom of your user talk page and click save.
If you are not blocked from editing the sandbox then the autoblock on your IP address has already expired and you can resume editing. Hersfold (t/a/c) 01:10, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first and then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

Unlock IP I'm using[edit]

Block message:

{{openproxy}}


Decline reason:

I'm leaving the IP block in place for now, but I'm giving you IP block exemption (WP:IPBE) so you can get around this block. This should not be taken as license to generally use proxies to edit Wikipedia. Feel free to go to WP:WPOP to ask that this IP be re-checked to see if it's still a proxy.

Speedy deletion of This is an April Fool's Day Prank[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg
Please refrain from introducing inappropriate pages such as This is an April Fool's Day Prank, to Wikipedia. Doing so is not in accordance with our policies. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. Radiant chains (talk) 23:48, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with File:Sine based triangle wave.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Sine based triangle wave.png. The image has been identified as not specifying the copyright status of the image, which is required by Wikipedia's policy on images. If you don't indicate the copyright status of the image on the image's description page, using an appropriate copyright tag, it may be deleted some time in the next seven days. If you have uploaded other images, please verify that you have provided copyright information for them as well.

RE: Parser function[edit]

I have answered your question about parser functions at the Help desk. Iceblock (talk) 17:51, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

Hello again. I forgot to tell you that the expression I gave you only works for standard time, not daylight saving time. For the latter, the "- 5" must be changed to "- 4". But it might be better to use the #time function like you do, but leave out the #ifexpr and change "h:i:s" to "h:i:s A" in the #time function. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction! (I had not studied the time formatting options thoroughly.) And that way you only need to change one expression on daylight saving changes. :-) Iceblock (talk) 21:29, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

Fair use images and userboxes[edit]

At User:Melab-1/Userboxes/Try Chrome you reinstated a fair use image onto the userbox [1]. Fair use images are not permitted to be used outside of the main article namespace per WP:NFCC #9 restrictions on location. Do not reinstate this image again as it is a direct violation of policy. Thank you. --Hammersoft (talk) 01:21, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

PHP example code[edit]

Hello there. I noticed you included PHP code a while ago here. I would like to say that PHP is a wonderful tool; however, it often doesn't allow the coder to write very accessible code. Also, I don't know if your coding habits have changed since October 8th, 2008, but it would be nice if you commented your example code and used more verbose variable names. I apologize if this message came off as rude or insulting; I meant neither.

Other than that, I must say that you have quite an extensive history on Wikipedia. Thanks for helping to make it a great place! Mindvirus (talk) 07:43, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

Reviewer granted[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

For the guideline on reviewing, see Wikipedia:Reviewing. Being granted reviewer rights doesn't change how you can edit articles even with pending changes. The general help page on pending changes can be found here, and the general policy for the trial can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Dabomb87 (talk) 22:28, 4 September 2010 (UTC)

Comparison of Android devices[edit]

Thanks for cleaning up the table of unknown device listings, but now nothing points to iPed. BTW, why such a wide talk page ? I'm having to scroll right and left to read in it, like searching for a similar post prior to posting mine. --Jerome Potts (talk) 02:37, 30 December 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of List of computer viruses (all)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article List of computer viruses (all) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Unencyclopedic list of information, per WP:NOTDIR.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. MBisanz talk 03:57, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Requested speedy deletion of User:Melab-1/Copies/WikiProject Computing[edit]

This page seems to be an old version of a wikiproject page with no subsequent edits, and it's still appearing in a bunch of project categories. I don't see why you'd want to keep it, but thought I'd post this notice just in case. Pnm (talk) 21:42, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

Politics and talk pages.[edit]

That old joke about politics is just a joke: "Poly (meaning many) + ticks (meaning blood sucking parasites)". The actual (boring) etymology is here: Wiktionary:politics.

Also, the link on the left side of your home page that says "Click here to go to My Talk Page" actually takes whoever clicks it to their own talk page, not yours. StuRat (talk) 05:16, 2 January 2013 (UTC)

Digging a little further, we find that the root is Greek πολίτης polítēs meaning ‘citizen’, from πόλις pólis ‘city’. (English polite comes from an unrelated Latin word meaning ‘polished’.) —Tamfang (talk) 08:04, 14 October 2014 (UTC)

Regarding Blue Submarine No.6[edit]

I fixed the very minor issue you asked plus some more expansion as i wasnt that well experienced before. Anyways next time something that minor doesnt need to be brought up in talkpage unless theres an edit war building up. Other than that i hope you are satisfied on what it looks (currently) and if you see any other articles relating to anime/manga that released in English that need the basic expansion, feel free to let me know.Lucia Black (talk) 05:26, 2 January 2013 (UTC)

ON a minor note, it has become B-class now. Lucia Black (talk) 08:32, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

Help to review a new proposed article[edit]

Hi Melab-1, I'm looking for editors who can help review a new article I've written on behalf of Rally.org, the online fundraising platform. As you're a member of WikiProject Websites and have some familiarity with website articles and related topics, I was wondering if you'd available to take a look at my draft and provide feedback. As I've written this for the company, I'm anxious to make sure it's neutral and follows Wikipedia guidelines.

If you have time to take a look, the draft is in my user space here: User:16912_Rhiannon/Rally.org You can leave comments on the Talk page and make any edits in the draft as necessary. If you think it's ready to go live, feel free to move it into live article space, I won't move it myself as I follow the "bright line" rule of COI editing and don't edit live articles. Please let me know here or on my Talk page if you have any questions at all. Thanks, 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 14:34, 2 April 2013 (UTC)

2nd Annual Wikimedia New England General Meeting[edit]

You are invited to the 2nd Annual Wikimedia New England General Meeting, on 20 July 2013 in Boston! We will be talking about the future of the chapter, including GLAM, Wiki Loves Monuments, and where we want to take our chapter in the future! EdwardsBot (talk) 09:54, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

PGP-Key[edit]

Hello Melab-1,
you tell us on your user-page that you have a PGP-key, but the link is incorrect ("unknown" is not key-ID :-)). Could you please add the correct-ID? Also it would be great if you could send me your key-ID by wiki-mail or leave it on my talk-page. Thanks :-). --DaB. (talk) 14:30, 18 August 2013 (UTC)

Edit-a-thon invite[edit]

Adrianne Wadewitz Memorial edit-a-thons[edit]

Adrianne Wadewitz edit-a-thons in Southern New England
Wikimania 2012 portrait 102 by ragesoss, 2012-07-13.JPG

As you may have already heard, the Wikipedia community lost an invaluable member of the community last month. Adrianne Wadewitz was a feminist scholar of 18th-Century British literature, and a prolific editor of the site. As part of a worldwide series of tributes, New England Wikimedians, in conjunction with local institutions of higher learning, have created three edit-a-thons that will be occurring in May and June. The events are as follows:

We hope that you will be able to join us, whether you are an experienced editor or are using Wikipedia for the first time.
