Information science[edit]

Hi, do you know how closely the "information science" as descibed in information science and the "information science" in library science are related? Cheers, —Ruud 14:24, 26 May 2006 (UTC)


I would support the suggested merge between Informatics and Information science to help clear this up. Informatics/Information science basically has more to do with IT/computer science. There is a bit of overlap esp when you get into human/computer interaction. The information science wing of Library science has made it even more confusing as those are studies coming from Library science but dealing more with IT issues. For example you can get either a MLS (Master of Library Science) or a MIS (Master of Information Science) from the same school of Library and Information Science. The MIS usually just focuses more on computer/tech classes while the MLS focuses on more traditional library classes. That being said there is a separate School of Informatics where you can get a MS in a sub-discipline so there is some distinction there. Hope that helps. Nowimnthing 14:44, 26 May 2006 (UTC)

Template:User wife[edit]

Hi, I notice that you are using Template:User wife, which has been moved to {{User:UBX/wife}}. The link currently being used on your page is a cross-namespace redirect and will probably not last. It may be advisable to change the link. Thanks. —Mira 05:59, 5 June 2006 (UTC)

Evolution: "is believed to" vs. "may"[edit]

I'm an open-minded skeptic of speciation claims. I'd be honored if you could provide me a citation or two about speciation having been observed in the lab. Folks I argue with claim that it hasn't. Lou Sander 16:42, 3 July 2006 (UTC) (Former 10-year public library trustee)


Sure, our article on Speciation has a few, though I will admit it is a bit bare. More are found [1], [2] and [3]. Nowimnthing 20:03, 3 July 2006 (UTC) copied to 2 talk pages


Interesting. I read a bunch of it, and if it's true, it seems as though there HAVE been cases of species being created. It also seems that almost all of them have been (for want of a better word) "intelligently designed." But that doesn't account for the wildflowers.
I wonder why, when important people assert that there haven't been any new species, the response is either like hornets disturbed, or Sunnis vs. Shiites, or (at least as I've seen it) something like "oh, we have jillions of examples." Maybe they should pick a few good ones and stick with them, so doubters can try to strike them down (Piltdown wildflowers?). Thanks again for the citations. Lou Sander 21:23, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

Young Adult Science Fiction Title[edit]

Regarding the question you'd posted on the Humanities Ref Desk a week or two ago ... User:Bmk came up with the "The Forgotten Door" by Alexander Key, and that is most definitely the book that I recall reading. I think I'll check my own local library to see if they have a copy of it. --LarryMac 16:56, 10 July 2006 (UTC)

Fossil record[edit]

Hello Nowimnthing, I'm Aeon from the Mediation Cabal. Wing Nut has requested Mediation in order to settle disputes over Fossil record. Please respond back to me if you are willing to talk this out in Mediation. The Mediation Cabal is informal so there is nothing to lose. Aeon Insane Ward 04:18, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

I'm not sure either if the article is about to be merged then this problem would become moot. I will inform Wing Nut. Thanks. Aeon Insane Ward 13:17, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

Evolution[edit]

Again, I am not trying to debate the merits of the IC argument. I am simply saying that according to WP:NPOV, we should at least present the viewpoint. —Aiden 16:01, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

The article on evolution is primarily an article about science not an article on creation beliefs. As such creationism is not relevent. The social effects of the theory are relevent and are mentioned in the article. Barnaby dawson 17:30, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

Fossils[edit]

Dear Nowimnthing: You clearly watch and contribute to the fossils page. I took the afternoon off to work on it, but expended time instead on the religion issue. FYI, my playground for fossils is a sandbox where things will begin to materialize. Please feel free to play there too. Perhaps later we can move the sandbox for others to dabble in.Likearock 21:40, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

German Library Reference Service[edit]

Hi! de:Wikipedia:Bibliotheksrecherche has excellent offers (from patrons, not librarians!) but nearly no customers. Should questions concerning English library materials posed on the Reference Desk or would it make sense to establish an own page? Greetings from Germany --Historiograf 03:48, 10 August 2006 (UTC)

Hello, and Could You Please Help Me?[edit]

Hello. I am the one who contributed the bit about Origin of Light. I'm sorry that I do not know what vanity press is. I am also sorry to hear that you had such a nasty experience with an author from Publish America! Let me assure you that I will not fight with you. Thank you for answering my question about vanity press. I am not self published with Publish America, I didn ot pay them, but they paid me to publish my book. I hope that this helps you o answer my query. Thanks! ~S

Fair use[edit]

See criteria 3 and 8 in particular, articles should use the least amount of fair use material possible. Taking 5 images of the same thing from the Smithsonian isn't fair and in the manner in which they were used in the articles didn't add anything more than one image.--Peta 13:37, 21 August 2006 (UTC)

That is rubbish, you can provide people with the necessary information by inlcuding a single image and including a link to the webpage from where you took the images. We are trying to build a free content encyclopedia, non-commercial use is not useful for people that resue wikipedia material, fair use is not free use. Please don't upload more images than are necessary.--Peta 23:53, 21 August 2006 (UTC)
Your only point it that you want to have all the pictures. Including them all is not fair.--Peta 00:38, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

creationism article[edit]

Thanks for your concern. If you believe my additions were inappropriate, uncyclopaedic or plain false then I will not resubmit them. Looking at your user boxes I’ll assume you’re not doing this purely on an anti-scientific/pro-religious basis. Can I ask what the specific inadequacies of my additions to the article where though? Where they really such a “mess”? The term mess does seem unreasonable, but the last time I made such minor and trivial changes to an article related to religion they were deemed (by one single user at least) to be rubbish! Guess you’re not as passionate as him. Thanks. Miller 19:32, 24 August 2006 (UTC)

Marxism-Leninism and Communism where inspired by evolution? OK, I understand what you mean now. I still don’t really understand what I did wrong though. (I can’t see your account name on the history of the article though) Miller 19:45, 24 August 2006 (UTC)

"Human evolution fossils"[edit]

...just doesn't sound right, does it? If you really wanted to, you could make it "List of fossils of human evolution". However, arguments from genetics suggest that none of the fossils we find are likely to be direct ancestors of modern humans, so if you really are going to be picky, you could say that the fossils, when alive, did not significantly contribute to human evolution anyway. What's the way out? "List of hominin fossils"? - Samsara (talkcontribs) 11:06, 4 September 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the award[edit]

See, it pays of contributing to this site while at work (all my edits are done while my reactions are incubating).--Roland Deschain 17:41, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

Requested moves Rhodesian man[edit]

You recently removed the move tag for that page, I guess I was the only person interested in the page move. I still think it needs to be done. It would be a move over a redirect but the redirect has some history so I need an admin to help. Can you do that or should I go back to the Requested moves page? Again the requested move is old name Rhodesian Man to new name Homo rhodesiensis in order to make it consistent with all the other species pages (Rhodesian Man refers to a specific fossil while the page is about the species.) I am working on creating pages for several fossils and that info will eventually end up there. Thanks Nowimnthing 14:18, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

I'm not sure what happened to that move request. An anon tagged the talk page eight months ago and then added the entry to WP:RM but it was lost somehow. Apparently no one took it seriously and removed it from WP:RM and then left the move tag there. I found it going through crusty forgotten move tags. Yes, please do add the move request again if you want - it just slipped through the cracks somehow. (I've removed dozens or hundreds of abandoned move tags lately so it's not unheard of) —Wknight94 (talk) 17:03, 6 September 2006 (UTC)


revert on delphi[edit]

Whoops! Sorry, your edit got flagged as vandalism incorrectly. I apologise and have restored the edit. --Sagaciousuk (talk) 19:05, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

Unspecified source for Image:Mauer3.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Mauer3.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, then you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, then their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self-no-disclaimers}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 19:30, 2 May 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Abu badali (talk) 19:30, 2 May 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:1470f.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading Image:1470f.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.Betacommand (talkcontribsBot) 00:33, 25 May 2007 (UTC)

Hello![edit]

Hello Nowimnthing! You do not know me. But I know you. I joined Wikipedia on October 1, 2007. Before that I made some edits as an anonymous user. I first saw Wikipedia in 2006 and became interested in Wikipedia in mid 2007. I saw your user page in 2006. At that time I knew almost nothing about Wikipedia. I am almost 100% sure that your user page was the first user page I saw on Wikipedia! I was wondering what was a user page doing in an encyclopedia. Today, after more than a year, when I saw your user page again, I became excited! I wish you all the best. Regards, Masterpiece2000 (talk) 09:00, 7 December 2007 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Al129knee.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy.

Pictures of Transitional Fossils[edit]

Hello, I'm contacting you because you appear to have done some work on List of transitional fossils. The problem I'm facing is this. I'm interesting in making a video and other content in favor of evolution, and I want to show pictures of the fossils in chronological order, i.e fish -> amphibians -> early reptiles -> mammals, etc. However the wikipedia page is showing only the drawings and not the fossils. Do you know where I might be able to find pictures of the real fossils?

Homo ergaster and its progeny[edit]

You have pointed to a section in the page Homo ergaster, and its dubious meaning. You say that the interpretation that ergaster, and not erectus, being the ancestor of later hominids such as sapiens and heidelbergensis is "definitely incorrect". I should dispute this. There is no consensus on the subject: ergaster is a very tricky species. I am trying to compile an article that is better, that cleans the page up (as, now, in rereading, I realise someone's comment on the "astoundingly bad" writing is quite accurate). I shall include proper mention of this debate as, whether it is well-known or not, ergaster is a contender for the status of sapiens-ancestor, rather than Asian erectus. It hinges mostly on whether ergaster is a valid taxon. If so, erectus is probably not the ancestor of heidelbergensis, which evolved in Africa, not Asia (unless, of course, the few remaining die-hard fans of the Multiregional Hypothesis are to be believed, in which case, many different populations of erectus may be our ancestors). If erectus is the only valid taxon, and Turkana Boy is merely a thin-boned example of an highly-variable chronospecies, then erectus is our ancestor. The separate taxon ergaster has been growing in abundance since the eighties, before which the name erectus was used to cover everything from ergaster to heidelbergensis. Obviously, I am biased in my writing of the article (I believe ergaster to be our ancestor, and erectus to have no trace in our blood, though this is merely an hunch: palæonthropology needs both more evidence and a consensus on these two taxa), but shall make a great effort to include such propositions as the Multiregional Hypothesis—which I consider to be next to insane, but which is still a valid, supported scientific hypothesis that can answer some questions that the African Origin Hypothesis cannot. My main difficulty in writing and editing this article has been trying to include all of these varying hypotheses and interpretations, while still composing a coherent article. To bring up the debate about the validity of the name ergaster every time I mention it would be, not only difficult, but extremely confusing for a reader. My point remains, however, that a considerable discussion remains to be resolved on whether ergaster or erectus be our direct ancestor. To say that it is "obviously incorrect" is assuming about as much as some of the incredibly biased sentences I must now excise from this article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Homo Ergaster (talkcontribs) 20:30, 2 August 2010 (UTC)

I think you are reading too much into my analysis. I just objected to the seeming scientific consensus that ergaster is definitely our ancestor implied by the first sentence formulation. I think I agree with most of what you just posted and will support the changes you suggest as long as they are referenced. My anth classes are over a decade out of date. :) Nowimnthing (talk) 01:55, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

Ah, then all is well. I thought you were objecting to the idea that ergaster might be our ancestor. It is all very difficult to find proper sources on this subject, as it has been in the last five or six years that "ergaster" has really become a widely-used name. New evidence and theories are hard to come by. Fortunately, I have found a friend in Ian Tattersall, as well as some other articles in various online journals I keep up on. I tend to edit hominid-pages by rewriting them in a text-document, keeping all previous references and photos, but massively altering any sketchy text. I make most mistakes while doing "minor edits" within Wikipedia. My new paragraph, rather than sentence, on this debate reads much better, I think, and should leave no doubt that the ergaster-erectus debate is not resolved.

List of human evolution fossils[edit]

1. Looking through the archives I nowhere found a long discussion or a solid consensus for the current title. The most recent discussion indicated several editors arguing for movement. Consensus 2. The current article reflects a previous stage of the article when it included non-hominid primate fossils which it doesn*t anymore. 3. I started a discussion and noone participated for several weeks. 4. I think you ought to move it back because there is no evidence that the current title is supported by a recent consensus. 5. At the very least provide arguments - not just references to a long past consensus (because consensus changes)- on the talkpage so we can have a discussion.·ʍaunus·snunɐw· 21:26, 8 August 2012 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Lemousf.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Lemousf.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page.
