You'll be interested in Wikipedia:Help desk#Dispute Resolution is a Sham. - DVdm (talk) 12:21, 28 January 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up. I hope that this is merely an aftershock. If not, I'll take it to ANI, enough is enough. Paradoctor (talk) 12:42, 28 January 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for February 10[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Heinz Hoenig, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Jump! (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles.

Love it[edit]

Indeed it's fantastic, this. If you can find a way to make it turn up with the blue background in non-Firefox browsers, then by all means I'll take it! - DVdm (talk) 09:35, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

And got it!. Through a sheer hunch I simply replaced
   style=background:-moz-radial-gradient(...
with
   style=background-color:#0077BE; background-image:-moz-radial-gradient(...
Intuition! smile - DVdm (talk) 10:21, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
Glad you like it. And I finally found out why it didn't work as advertised. W3schools and pretty much everyone else use the old position-first syntax in their examples, despite it not being supported for the prefix-free function. It should work now in recent versions of all major browsers, for IE10 and FF27 it does definitely. If you want to extend support further back, just add the corresponding vendor prefixes. D00d, I'm l33t! grin Paradoctor (talk) 20:11, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
Can you believe it? I only noticed the other two gradients when you splatted them. TFT notebook displays suck. Mine does, at least. tongue out Paradoctor (talk) 20:39, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

yes[edit]

Yes, I trust you that reliable sources would be needed for that. It is obvious commonsense, and is logically valid, but at present I don't know of a reliable source. I think the physics community has brainwashed itself into not seeing the obvious here, and of course Wikipedia will hardly buck that. But I was interested to see who would react and how.Chjoaygame (talk) 05:34, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

Hafele-Keating Reloaded[edit]

I just realized that an experimental test of relativistic length contraction is at most a few years away from being feasible. Solar Probe Plus will bring a satellite into the Sun's corona. This shows that it should be possible to send an experiment into a solar orbit with a radius of 5.9 million km, which translates to an orbital speed of .0005c. Put two rods into counter-rotating orbits, and they will pass with a relative speed of .001c, corresponding to a length contraction of .9999995. For 1 m long rods, this would mean a length difference of 500 nm, the wavelength of visible violet light. Using thermally controlled Zerodur, a handful of atomic clocks, interferometers, picosecond lasers and assorted gadgetry, this should be doable. Of course, there is nothing fundamental preventing us from using 1000m long rods, increasing the length difference to .5 mm. wink Paradoctor (talk) 23:14, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

Talk:Ant on a rubber rope[edit]

I was thinking of keeping their contributions, but there was something in there that was struck across various (earlier) paragraphs, and that's just too difficult for me. Or maybe I'm a Pretenddoctor. Thanks, Drmies (talk) 15:40, 21 March 2014 (UTC)

On the Internet, nobody knows you're a dogtor. wink Paradoctor (talk) 17:37, 21 March 2014 (UTC)
Nice! But don't tell Dr. K. Or Dr. Blofeld. Drmies (talk) 23:43, 21 March 2014 (UTC)

reply[edit]

Thanks! :) I'll read that, it looks helpful! If I put a link that shouldn't exist feel free to correct it or ask me to fix it ;) Regards, Χρυσάνθη Λυκούση (talk) 05:33, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

I think I can do that. ;) Paradoctor (talk) 05:37, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

URLs[edit]

Ouch I'm sorry, I'll use the page title or other suggestions in the info page you linked, thanks for giving me this link I'll read it. Bare URLs even in the footnotes create serious problems when printing a page or making a PDF because the Google Chrome browser has a software bug which seems to be activated by bare URLs on Wikipedia when using a large font size, enclosing the URLs in brackets was a suggestion I read on a Chrome user forum discussing the problem. You're correct it hides information, though, so I'll make sure to put the page's title instead of leaving it empty.^^ Regards, Χρυσάνθη Λυκούση (talk) 19:22, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

No need to be apologetic, you're doing fine. I started seven years ago, and I still have to constantly look up things. wink Paradoctor (talk) 21:14, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

April 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Roger Corman filmography may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "()"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • {{tr4c |1954 | ''[[Monster from the Ocean Floor]]'' | Producer<br/>Actor ("Tommy")) (uncredited)<ref name="imdb"/> | Directed by Wyott Ordung }}

ERP[edit]

Hi Paradoctor, please could you stop re-adding those entries to the dab, WP:DABACRO explains why. Widefox; talk 00:20, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

WP:VP/P[edit]

I hate myself for smiling. But seriously: there must be a better way of dealing with this, no? VQuakr (talk) 19:49, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

Similarity[edit]

Hey, that image at First Crusade somehow reminds me of that of The Grand Wazoo (higher res for instance here). Check it out. - DVdm (talk) 20:20, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

Uncanny. Could be a Sängerkrieg, don't you think? grin Paradoctor (talk) 20:36, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
