Hi,

Hmmm, I will see if I can improve descriptions on that scenario!

Security[edit]

Are are you writing on the security related pages? I have seen that some people have lists of "these pages are my most important contributions". I really like such pages, gives a feel for the user's efforts into wikipedia, makes a "user" more into a "person" so to speak :-)

--Blaufish 20:07, 3 March 2006 (UTC)

You're right, I should describe my topics of interest on my user page ... but I am not really a topic editor, I just use wikipedia, read articles and correct things when I feel I can ... Anyway I am not a security expert ... but trying stuff once in a while and reading bugtraq when I have time ;-) Nicolas1981 14:25, 4 March 2006 (UTC)

Adobe Acrobat[edit]

Hi Gscshoyru. You just reverted my edit on Adobe Acrobat giving "useless and misplaced" as a reason. Useless ? Knowing how a software has been developed is really important, it is like knowing how the Taj Mahal has been built, concrete or stone. Misplaced ? There are 3 sections in the article: header, history, criticism. The latter two sections can not be considered, I am left with the header, because I don't want to create an entire new section for just this simple sentence. I guess you will agree on the second point, but you will need to elaborate on the first one. Cheers, Nicolas1981 17:12, 19 July 2007 (UTC).

Yeah... Um... not sure what I was thinking. Not useless. Is misplaced though... there's probably a better spot that the summary, since it really doesn't belong there. But I was being stupid... Gscshoyru 17:19, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

Single editor[edit]

I think that this list is a very useful idea! I've moved it to a public place so that other people can e.g. strike the articles they've fixed, and added it to our "cleanup" list. >Radiant< 12:09, 2 August 2007 (UTC)

Great :-) Sorry I could not find the"public place" and "cleanup list" pages you mention, would you be kind enough to post the links ? Thanks a lot ! Nicolas1981 13:52, 2 August 2007 (UTC)
WP:ASE and CAT:CLN. By the way I'd suggest making subpages for the list, perhaps one per letter, since it appears to be getting pretty long. >Radiant< 14:31, 2 August 2007 (UTC)

REPLY: WP:ASE checklist[edit]

Hello, You previously comment about the Articles written by a single editor page. By the way, thanks! I really thought it needed some good redesigns :) And it looks like the page is active again! At first, I had no clue what the purpose for the project page was. So I designed the checklist for wikipedians:) More will be added soon. If you want, you can add the typos idea you mentioned (or anything else you think it needs). If you want me to post your suggestions, just let me know.

Thanks, ZooFari 00:38, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

Thanks ! Let's have a collaborative work on this, we will probably refine the guidelines after using them for a while :) Nicolas1981 (talk) 16:22, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

WP:ASE[edit]

These single-editor page directories, for which you have my highest praise for composing a program to write, are a little out of date. Just clicking on a few of the first links will show that many have multiple edits going back to mid-2007. I will try to get the groovy code to work for me, but if I cannot by December, (or if you'd like to do so before then), can you update the page? Thanks! -Monk of the highest order(t) 07:30, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Hello Monk of the highest order, thanks for your involvement ! Indeed, the list have been generated a while ago, and needs to be updated. It would be great if you could launch the generation, for two reasons: First to update the list; but more importantly to make the project more sustainable: long-living projects are not those who in the hands of a single person, but those mastered by several people. I can help you master the Groovy scripts, don't hesitate to ask if you need anything :-) You may want to create a subpage of [WP:ASE] to share your experience and potential difficulties with running the generation script.

Nicolas1981, thank you for taking the time to comment on WT:Notability_(fiction)#Final_adoption_as_a_guideline.

By the way, another editor responded to your comments with a four line response. Ikip (talk) 15:47, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

I am concerned about how new editors are treated here also. As I have found, the majority of articles for deletion are articles created by new users. Ikip (talk) 15:47, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

Neural network[edit]

"The web application will collect the user's choice and use it to train a neural network." What will be the final result of this training? What will an editor do with it? How will it improve Wikipedia? What do you really mean by this? Yours, GeorgeLouis (talk) 15:17, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

The trained neural network is a mathematical function that takes an article's metrics and output a number. This number is an estimate of how much this article might interest the user who trained the neural network. Applied on all articles, it would give a list of the Wikipedia articles this user most likely want to edit. Thus the user would check (and potentially edit) articles he really feels like editing, and probably does a better job at it. It is just theory, nothing has been implemented yet, and the result would probably be far from perfect. Nicolas1981 (talk) 15:44, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

Ah, this sounds promising, but isn't there something like this already? I remember getting a message about a year ago concerning "Articles that might interest you." GeorgeLouis (talk) 20:05, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

Indeed, I actually used it myself, its name is User:SuggestBot. SuggestBot mostly uses a user's edit history, whereas the program I described uses mostly the user's reaction to each suggested article, trying to refine the suggestions over time based on whether the user edited the suggested article or not. Also, SuggestBot tries to find topics that will interest the user (like industry-related chemicals, 12th century travels, etc) which is quite difficult to do. The program I described would not be able to understand topics, instead focusing on articles metrics, for instance it could guess that a particular user will want to edit an article that has had an edit-war a year ago and contributions from only one author since then. It can be thought of as WP:ASE with an adaptive algorithm, rather than the well-defined rules ASE has right now. By the way, we could eventually take the algorithm that adapted well to a given user, check whether it also works for other users, and if it works better than ASE's default algorithm, we would override ASE's algorithm with this adapted one.

Per your request you are now a Reviewer[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. 7  05:56, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

Hi. As you recently commented in the straw poll regarding the ongoing usage and trial of Pending changes, this is to notify you that there is an interim straw poll with regard to keeping the tool switched on or switching it off while improvements are worked on and due for release on November 9, 2010. This new poll is only in regard to this issue and sets no precedent for any future usage. Your input on this issue is greatly appreciated. Off2riorob (talk) 23:42, 20 September 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Akhil Bharat Nepali Ekta Samaj[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 Akhil Bharat Nepali Ekta Samaj 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 club, 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 the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but 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 yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent 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. Shrikanthv (talk) 08:29, 11 October 2012 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Huawei STREAM X GL07S[edit]

Hello, Nicolas1981. I wanted to let you know that I’m proposing an article that you started, Huawei STREAM X GL07S, for deletion because I don't think it meets our criteria for inclusion. If you don't want the article deleted:

  1. edit the page
  2. remove the text that looks like this: {{proposed deletion/dated...}}
  3. save the page

Also, be sure to explain why you think the article should be kept in your edit summary or on the article's talk page. If you don't do so, it may be deleted later anyway.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Nathan2055talk - contribs 02:45, 3 June 2013 (UTC)
