De-wikification in the EPROM area[edit]

Dear Moxfyre, just FYI: the same two IP addresses that were used to de-wikify the Flash memory article (that you have fixed since), were used to also mutilate EPROM, EEPROM, and PROM articles. I have fixed these, but it might not be good faith, after all. Dimawik 21:12, 12 August 2007 (UTC)

Good eye! I'm not sure if I've ever seen such methodical and patient vandalism, but it is very suspicious and annoying. I'll keep a look out, thanks for the heads up. MOXFYRE (contrib) 00:32, 13 August 2007 (UTC)
Sooner or later, we will see a worm that attacks Wikipedia :-(. I suspect this to be the trial run, as the only thing in common between these two addresses is that they are both broadband connections - and the damage to the articles is of the kind that is pretty hard to do by hand and pretty easy by a script. If this is indeed an attack, it is very sneaky, as the damaged article does not appear to be vandalized at the first glance. Once additional changes are applied after the vandalism, the changes will be very hard to revert cleanly. I will be very happy if I am wrong in my suspicions. Dimawik 08:46, 13 August 2007 (UTC)

unicrown fork[edit]

Hi Moxfyre! I wanna ask you a completely wikipedia-un-related question. Hope it's okay. I recently bought a cromoly touring frame. Italian built, completely lugged. Pretty decent thing. The fork which came with the frame is a unicrown one. It has all the needed brazeons and nice clearance for fat tires. But people have very bad reviews about unicrown forks. What are your experiences? Does it really handle badly? Would you suggest anything else?

Thanks for your answers in advance. Cheers!

--Suleyman Habeeb 17:42, 17 January 2007 (UTC)

thanks man, rather quick answer! :) your friend is right, drivers here in istanbul are crazy and mean and ill-tempered :D getting hit on the head with a coke can is a daily matter here! :) anywho I read that there was some comfort issues with unicrown forks but it's cool to hear good things form someone who actually uses them. I'm thinking of this bike as a commuter and tourer. sort of the EVERYTHING bike many cyclists dream of. it's a mixte frame with internal wiring and all. as Grant Petersen says, we'll all [probably] be riding mixtes sooner or later.

cheers.

I don't know what basis you have for assuming a typo to be intentional (If you looked at my several thousand edits, I can't imagine why you'd presume this edit was intentional vandalism, and not a mere typo while fixing the actual spelling error (as noted by the "sp" edit comment) which was made in the same edit.

Closing Translations[edit]

How do you close out a translation after proofreading, so that it will be archived and disappear from the requests page? I can't seem to find instructions on how to do that. For example I just finished proofreading Translation/French special retirement plan‎, and so it should be archived or something, right? Thanks Vrac 02:36, 2 December 2007 (UTC)

Thanks, Vrac 06:50, 2 December 2007 (UTC)

These completed translations don't seem to be going away, should we just manually delete them from Wikipedia:Translation/*/Lang/fr ? Vrac (talk) 00:06, 7 December 2007 (UTC)

SensorSizes.svg[edit]

thanks for fixing the file. I tried to get rid of the clipping issues myself and couldn't. What did you do? I created the file in Adobe Illustrator, so that could be part of the problem. Hotshot977 (talk) 20:32, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

ah--I noticed Illustrator can only save up to 1.1. Though, whenever I opened the file with Inkscape or Illustrator after downloading it from the upload, the cropping issues weren't present. Also, I'm still even less familiar with Inkscape than Illustrator. Hotshot977 (talk) 20:39, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

Sensor size diagram[edit]

Look, I really have a very difficult time understanding what the heck this is all about.

I did a lot of work to make a diagram that was accurate and informative and, in my opinion, attractive. I can mention that I made an Excel spreadsheet where I calculated to the exact pixel how big each rectangle should be, even taking into account the thickness of the rectangle walls (2 pixels). If you look at my diagram at 300% viewing you can see that everything is crisp - rectangle walls are exactly 2 pixels thick, except for the full frame shadows that are exactly 1 pixel thick.

The resulting PNG was only 17 KB, making it very efficient.

Then along comes someone and flags it as a candidate for SVG conversion. That is complete bullshit - it's small and looks OK and nothing will be gained by converting it to SVG.

Then along comes Hotshot, and, God help me, runs the PNG through a tracing process to vectorize it! This is guaranteed to introduce a certain level of error because the diagram data it not 100% accurate; it is by necessity rounded to the nearest pixel. (If the diagram really had to be re-done as a vector-based graphic, I would expect the person doing so to be conscientious enough to enter the data properly from the specified dimensions for each sensor, not do a quick-and-dirty tracing.)

On top of that Hotshot does a sloppy job of entering the text (spelling mistake, superscript 2 not superscript), and sets the font size too large. And the resulting SVG is 52 KB, making a mockery out of any justification for converting from PNG to SVG.

Incidentally, you mention on your latest posting that the file size is not important because the graphic is shown as a thumbnail. This is not true, it is not the server but the browser that resizes the graphic - the full file is sent over the Internet every time. (Even if you were right, the performance hit would still affect the server, it has to read the unnecessarily-large file from its hard disk.)

Anyway, the SVG has been manipulated and now it's been rasterized. So we started with a crisp and exact (as exact as possible) raster graphic and end up with another raster graphic that is less exact (two conversion have been done, and each conversion introduces some error), not crisp (look at yours at 300% viewing and you can see that it is blurry due to anti-aliasing), text still too large and also blurry, and the file is 3.5 times larger.

What exactly is the point of this exercise?

On top of everything else, it now says, if I understand it correctly, that the file is a condidate for deletion!

I hope you can understand that something like this makes me loose all motivation to use my free time to try to make things that will be of use here on Wikipedia.

Thanks for listening. --RenniePet (talk) 23:40, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

I read your translation.I think that you felt the question on the following texts .
Ses appareils sont équipés de deux rotors coaxiaux controrotatifs.Pour assurer les déplacements, le pilote dispose d'un manche à balai qu'il peut incliner dans .la direction qu'il veut suivre. Il en résulte une variation cyclique du pas de chaque pale à chaque rotation. les rotors produisent une poussée aérodynamique dissymètrique qui incline l'appareil dans la direction choisie. Une manette commande la variation globale du pas des rotors, permettant à l'hélicoptère de monter ou descendre verticalement. Cette innovation des commandes se retrouvent dans les appareils actuels sous les noms respectifs de commande de pas cyclique et de pas collectif. Un volant situé sur le manche à balai fait varier différemment le gauchissement des pales de chaque rotor, ce qui engendre un couple de rotation permettent le virage sur place.
I translated them into English with the help of machine translating site, and read them.I felt nothing wrong while reading them.They describe almost same thing as the present helicopter.So there will be no problem if you translate them to English.Of cource there may be some unsuitable expressions.

Sensel[edit]

M, I'm going to propose we delete the sensel article unless you respond to the notability tag by shoring it up with citations to reliable sources. And remove the unsupportable bits while you're at it. Dicklyon (talk) 20:53, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Sensel[edit]

I have nominated Sensel, an article you created, for deletion. I do not feel that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Sensel. Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time.

Sensel[edit]

Nuvola apps important yellow.svg

Another editor has added the {{prod}} template to the article Sensel, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but the editor doesn't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and has explained why in the article (see also Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not and Wikipedia:Notability). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia or discuss the relevant issues at its talk page. If you remove the {{prod}} template, the article will not be deleted, but note that it may still be sent to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

Speedy Delete notice[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Wikipedia:WikiProject Scouting/Userboxes/APO, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done for the following reason:

This user box is a "substantial duplication of another template", which exists at Template:Userbox aphio. While I understand this has transclusions and links to it, they pale in comparison to the above-mentioned userbox. Comparison of links to this template and the other one

This userbox: Special:Whatlinkshere/Wikipedia:WikiProject Scouting/Userboxes/APO - 5 unique users* APhiO Userbox: Special:Whatlinkshere/Template:User aphio - 14 unique users* (*1 user has both boxes)

Since this is a substantial duplication, it meets the criteria for speedy deletion of templates as noted here: Wikipedia:CSD#Templates. I will personally replace the userbox on the other user pages.

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not meet basic Wikipedia criteria may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as an appropriate article, and if you can indicate why the subject of this article is appropriate, you may contest the tagging. To do this, add {{hangon}} on the top of the page and leave a note on [[Talk:Wikipedia:WikiProject Scouting/Userboxes/APO|the article's talk page]] explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm its subject's notability under the guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this.

Olympus E-10 and E-20 are DSLRs[edit]

At least that was what I was forced to admit after a heated discussion, where I too claimed that they were not DSLRs.

They have a fixed lens, but otherwise meet the definition. And the definition does not demand changable lenses. --RenniePet (talk) 15:12, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

I agree that the definition doesn't require changeable lenses (although every SLR ever made has them :-P). But the E-10 and E-20 lack reflex mirrors, right? I mean, they use some kind of beam-splitter prism. Does this really satisfy the SLR definition? I suppose it's a bit hair-splitting at that point! What convinced you? ǝɹʎℲxoɯ (contrib) 15:27, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
Well, DPReview inconsistently calls them SLRs and "SLR-like". You are right about the beam-splitter. (I had let myself be told that it used a moving mirror, like "real" SLRs.)
http://a.img-dpreview.com/reviews/OlympusE20/Images/e20cutthrough.jpg
Still, I would assume that the defining characteristic of an SLR is that the viewfinder is optical and that you are looking through the lens. When you zoom the lens, WYSIWYG. --RenniePet (talk) 15:39, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
Good point. Those cameras are annoyingly resistant to classification:
  • Unlike all other SLRs, they lack interchangeable lenses and reflex mirrors.
  • Unlike all other bridge cameras, they have only a single through-the-lens optical path shared by the viewfinder and sensor.
The SLR article defines SLR cameras in terms of "an automatic moving mirror system". But I agree with you that the single, through-the-lens optical path is the relevant feature when you get down to it. If you have a good way to explain the E-10's and E-20's features in their articles, please do :-) ǝɹʎℲxoɯ (contrib) 16:10, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

Hi both! ǝɹʎℲxoɯ asked me to come here and help with the discussion. I don't own a E-20 (frankly, I have never seen one in real world!) but as far as I've noticed (while reading about it, before creating the article), most reviwers and professionals call it a "SLR-like" camera.

Classifications become hard when facing a camera with unusal features. A while ago, I had a similar problem with Canon PowerShot S5 IS, which lacks an interchangeable lens, yets is mostly classified as a dSLR-like (and as Cannon calls it, "compact") camera.

Hope this helps, hujiTALK —Preceding comment was added at 19:49, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

DSLR templates[edit]

The category of SLRs has pretty much continuously been changed because they didn't have references: whatever an editor thought was good enough. Now take you as an example. Despite having a reference you change it based on your own personal opinion. To me that's worse than changing it without a reference. Cburnett (talk) 00:04, 8 March 2008 (UTC)


The request for mediation of the Nikon DSLR Template has been denied. It was suggested that a case be filed with the Mediation Cabal and I have done so. I would very much appreciate your comment on the issue there as you did on the first request. I did not include you in the parties because I don't know how involved you want to get in the issue but feel free to add your name to the involved parties if you feel strongly enough about the issue. I very much agree with your statements from the first requested resolution but did not copy them to this request as I felt I should leave it up to you whether you wanted to continue into this or not.

Wikiproject Electronics collaboration[edit]

Hi, I am writing to you because you have listed yourself as a member of the Electronics WikiProject. Sadly, this project is pretty dead, but I propose to resuscitate it with a collaboration. The idea is to have a concerted effort on improving one article per month, hopefully to GA or FA status and nominate the very best of them for the front page. I have prepared a page to control this process at Wikipedia:WikiProject Electronics/Collaboration (actually, I mostly shamelessly stole it from Wikipedia:WikiProject Mammals where a collaboration of this sort was succesfully run). There you can make nominations for articles for collaboration or comment on the nominations of others.

If you want to take part you might like to place this template {{WikiProject Electronics Collaboration}} on your userpage which will give you a link to the current collaboration. If you are no longer interested in Wikiproject Electronics, please remove yourself from the members list, which is now at Wikipedia:WikiProject Electronics/Members

Proposed deletion of PyBlosxom[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article PyBlosxom, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

lacks notability and third party sources, no ads

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. 16x9 (talk) 20:14, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

So you're saying that if I keep the revision history log, it won't be necessary to actually upload the individual revisions of the file itself? - A couple of days ago I actually looked around WP for clarification for the "revision history log", but found nothing. Uploading all the individual revisions of the file itself seems tedious - unless the file's size has notably changed, or it has been cropped i guess.
P.S. See the "Original upload log" and "File history" of File:Lake_Worth_Pier.jpg and the fault of the File Upload Bot, that needed to be corrected. feydey (talk) 21:12, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

If you manage to digest these properly, you will have become one of those rare editors: someone who knows what a disambiguation page is for (ie. a page to aid navigation of Wikipedia articles when searching for a term that is ambiguous) and how to format one. And then I will embrace you as a brother.

Good luck with the reading. If you have specific questions regarding how to interpret a particular aspect of MOS:DAB, there are some friendly folk over at Wikipedia:WikiProject Disambiguation who are generally only too happy to help. 212.32.120.158 (talk) 21:52, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

K-7[edit]

The article was recreated literally hours after deletion. It is not referenced by anything besides blogs. one of the references says "This preview is based on an early pre-production camera and may not precisely reflect the behavior of production specification units." Hence it cannot be basis of an ancyclopedic article. You are free to write a new one based on reliable sources recognizable in wikpedia. - Altenmann >t 01:20, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

DeLay tags[edit]

hi moxfyre :) no one else has commented on your tags/our disc on the DeLay talk pg. Are u satisfied w/ the correxns i made on the "birther" subsect? Are u comfortable removing that "neutrality" tag? I haven't changed anything yet on Season Nine tone, so i assume u still want that tag? Also, u may be int in the "intro too long" tag DMCer placed atop the intro. I disagree, and wrote a response on the DeLay talk pg. I also made some correxns (and actually some brief addtns) to intro. I feel the intro conforms nicely to the WP:Lead section article.

hey there moxfyre. DJ Clayworth & i had a back & forth re the DeLay birther section, but he's happy now, as u can rd about on the DeLay talk pg. Since you were the one who originally placed the tag, though, i'd prefer that you remove it, if you're satisfied w/ the way it looks now.

also the intro sect referred to in my first post above is also resolved, as DMCer is now satisfied (see also DeLay talk pg).

i haven't changed anything re "season nine," and neither has anyone else, so i suppose the tone tag can stay if u still feel that way.

lemme know.

thanks :-), Beansandveggies (talk) 07:08, 14 October 2009 (UTC)


hi moxfyre, unless u've changed ur mind on (my) season nine tone, i think u accidentally rem'd that tag instead of the neutrality one over the birther subsect. Beansandveggies (talk) 05:43, 15 October 2009 (UTC)

hey moxfyre, think u must've overlooked my last message. Please see above. Thanks :-), Beansandveggies (talk) 06:05, 18 October 2009 (UTC)

Steve's Digicams' CR-V3 review[edit]

Thanks for your contributions to CR-V3 battery. http://www.wrotniak.net/photo/c/rcr-v3.html points out that the external link you added -- http://www.steves-digicams.com/2003_reviews/rcrv3.html -- may be biased. Steve links to a battery selling site (link no longer works) after his review, and maybe he was paid to add the link. There are other possible problems that wrotniak.net mentions too. I'm removing your link.  :) Cheers, --unforgettableid | talk 02:04, 11 December 2009 (UTC)

File copyright problem with File:Fourastie.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thank you for uploading File:Fourastie.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the file. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their license and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 15:20, 5 May 2010 (UTC)

Reviewer permission[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.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 15:39, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Fuelly[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 Fuelly 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 a person, organization (band, club, company, etc.) or web content, 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 see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), 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. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you.

Proposed deletion of BS170[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article BS170 has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

WP is not a parts catalogue

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. -- Alan Liefting (talk) - 19:33, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

Your signature[edit]

Hi. It is very important that you fix your signature. Your current signature breaks templates. Here is what a template which includes three instances of your current signature looks like and here is the same page after I fixed your signatures. All you need to do is go to your preferences and change your signature to:

[[User:Moxfyre|Moxfyre]] <small>([[User talk:Moxfyre|ǝɹʎℲxoɯ]] &#124; [[Special:Contributions/Moxfyre|contrib]])</small>

As you can see, all that needs to be done is to replace one "|" – the one that's visibly displayed in your signature – with "&#124;". (The other three "|"s, which are used in piped links, are fine.) The signature will look and work exactly the same, but it will be compatible with templates.

(By the way, I used to include "upside down" characters in my signature too!)

Thanks in advance for taking care of this. MANdARAX  XAЯAbИAM 21:57, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads-up! I hadn't edited my sig in quite a long time and didn't realize I was now borking templates left and right. Fixed now. —Moxfyre (ǝɹʎℲxoɯ | contrib) 22:03, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
Great! Thanks for the quick response. I fixed another instance, which looks like the only other template you've edited in the last few years which is likely to contain your signature. MANdARAX  XAЯAbИAM 22:24, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
