Oxford Meetup 6[edit]

Face-smile.svg Thank you for attending the fifth Oxford Meetup, and it was a pleasure meeting you. I intended to send this message on Monday, but I've been a bit busy, sorry.

Several of us would like to continue with the monthly plan, since trying to make a two-monthly cycle fit into the University terms doesn't work very well. A page has been created about the sixth Oxford Meetup; please sign up if you think that you are able to attend - if the date or venue are unsuitable, please comment at its discussion page.

Please spread the word to anybody else who you think might be interested. The next UK meetups are at: London, 16 June; Manchester, 22 June; and Coventry, 7 July. --Redrose64 (talk) 14:10, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

Hi, it was pointed out to me that 7 July 2013 collides with Coventry 8, who have a prior claim to the date. Since nobody has (yet) claimed 14 July for any UK meetups, I have decided that Oxford 6 should be held on 14 July 2013, and not 7 July as previously advertised. In this way, those who wish to attend both may do so. I hope the revised Oxford date is convenient for you; and if it isn't, why not give Coventry a try? --Redrose64 (talk) 15:45, 15 June 2013 (UTC)

Revived interest in Infernal Affairs[edit]

Invitation to participate in the poll for Infernal Affairs.

From your edits for the film Infernal Affairs there is presently a poll taking place on The Departed film Talk page regarding whether you believe a separate subsection should be included for (a) Infernal Affairs as a source for the plot of The Departed film, and/or (b) a second subsection for the recently captured crime figure Whitey Bulger as the source for the character played by Jack Nicholson in the film.

The recent capture of Bulger has revived the question from two years ago of Infernal Affairs from when it did have a separate subsection on The Departed film page which was deleted by User:RepublicanJ, now known as User:OldJ. Invite to visit The Departed Talk page, to the Bulger section at the end of the Page, to participate in the Poll currently taking place. 208.120.96.227 (talk) 11:12, 7 September 2013 (UTC)

Oxford Meetup 9[edit]

Hi, I've created m:Meetup/Oxford/9 with no date, would October 13 or October 20 be most convenient for you? There's a discussion page at m:Talk:Meetup/Oxford/9 so that a date may be agreed. Please comment there. --Redrose64 (talk) 15:52, 16 September 2013 (UTC)

See List of Doctor Who serials#Series overview. I make the total down to the end of 1989 as 695 episodes broadcast: the first six seasons account for 253, of which 97 are missing. --Redrose64 (talk) 19:39, 13 October 2013 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Hello. You on February 12, 2005 added some more countries to the article List of nuclear reactors, among them Uruguay with a "URR Reactor" (URR = «University Research Reactor»). In which source of information did you find this?

I am asking for this because I am working on an article jointly with user Ganímedes about Nuclear energy in Uruguay (es:Energía nuclear en Uruguay).

Regards, --Zerabat (talk) 14:24, 3 December 2013 (UTC)

Hi, I think the info was from http://www.iaea.org/worldatom/rrdb/ but is now a deadlink. The following page shows Uruguay but reactor is now listed as "decommissioned": http://nucleus.iaea.org/RRDB/RR/ReactorSearch.aspx?rf=1 . Hope that helps, --Mervyn (talk) 16:41, 3 December 2013 (UTC)

Motto of the Day Help Request April 2014[edit]

Today's motto...

Moment of inner freedom
when the mind is opened & the
infinite universe revealed
& the soul is left to wander
dazed & confus'd searching
here & there for teachers & friends.


Nominate one today!

Motto of the Day (WP:MOTD) is in a state of emergency and really needs your help! There are not enough editors who are reviewing or nominating mottos at Wikipedia:Motto of the day/Nominations/In review, and this probably means that you will notice a red link or “This space for rent” as our mottos for the next weeks and months.

Please take a moment to review the nominations and nominate your own new mottos at Wikipedia:Motto of the day/Nominations/In review and Wikipedia:Motto of the day/Nominations/'Specials. Any help would be appreciated! MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 09:13, 29 April 2014 (UTC)

This message has been sent by pjoef on behalf of Motto of the Day to all editors of the English Wikipedia who are showing MOTD's templates on their pages, and to all the participants to MOTD: (page, template, and category).
