Speedy deletion nomination of Template:0/[edit]

A tag has been placed on Template:0/ requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section T3 of the criteria for speedy deletion because it is a deprecated or orphaned template. After seven days, if it is still unused and the speedy deletion tag has not been removed, the template will be deleted.

If the template is intended to be substituted, please feel free to remove the speedy deletion tag and please consider putting a note on the template's page indicating that it must be substituted so as to avoid any future mistakes (<noinclude>{{substituted}}</noinclude>).

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page's talk page, where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, 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 from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. Lfdder (talk) 10:56, 12 July 2013 (UTC)

Main Page appearance[edit]

Hello! This is a note to let the main editors of the article List of municipalities of the Netherlands know that it will be appearing as the main page featured list on September 2, 2013. You can view the TFL blurb at Wikipedia:Today's featured list/September 2, 2013. If you think it is necessary to change the main date, you can request it with the featured list directors The Rambling Man (talk · contribs), Dabomb87 (talk · contribs) or Giants2008 (talk · contribs), or at Wikipedia talk:Today's featured list. If the previous blurb needs tweaking, you might change it—following the instructions of the suggested formatting. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page so Wikipedia doesn't look bad. Face-smile.svg Thanks! Tbhotch. Grammatically incorrect? Correct it! See terms and conditions. 01:01, 1 September 2013 (UTC)

Red linked templates[edit]

Greetings Patrick, I am working to clean up some of the database reports and I noticed that a couple of your subpages have some deleted templates that are appearing on Wikipedia:Database reports/Transclusions of deleted templates/1 and Wikipedia:Database reports/Transclusions of deleted templates/2. Since you are still an active editor I don't want to mess with your subpages but I was wondering if you would mind taking a look and maybe udpating some of the red links or something so they will stop popping on the reports. Thanks and please let me know if you have any questions. Kumioko (talk) 17:50, 5 September 2013 (UTC)‎

I removed calls to country data templates, which seem to have been the problem. - Patrick (talk) 21:51, 6 September 2013 (UTC)

Your admin status[edit]

Hello. I'm a steward. A new policy regarding the removal of "advanced rights" (administrator, bureaucrat, etc.) was adopted by community consensus recently. According to this policy, the stewards are reviewing administrators' activity on wikis with no inactivity policy.

You meet the inactivity criteria (no edits and no log actions for 2 years) on vlswiki, where you are an administrator. Since vlswiki does not have its own administrators' rights review process, the global one applies.

If you want to keep your rights, you should inform the community of the wiki about the fact that the stewards have sent you this information about your inactivity. If the community has a discussion about it and then wants you to keep your rights, please contact the stewards at m:Stewards' noticeboard, and link to the discussion of the local community, where they express their wish to continue to maintain the rights, and demonstrate a continued requirement to maintain these rights.

We stewards will evaluate the responses. If there is no response at all after approximately one month, we will proceed to remove your administrative rights. In cases of doubt, we will evaluate the responses and will refer a decision back to the local community for their comment and review. If you have any questions, please contact us on m:Stewards' noticeboard.

Best regards, Rschen7754 22:00, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

Degrees of freedom in wallpaper groups[edit]

Hi Patrick,

I am not sure how you obtained the numbers of degrees of freedom in [Wallpaper_group]. Could you explain please? | Section here.

Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:28, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

In brief:
  • p3.., p4.., p6..: position (2), size (1), orientation (1)
  • p1: translation vectors (4)
  • p2: translation vectors (4), position (2)
  • pm: translation vectors (3), position (1)
  • pg: translation vectors (3), position (1)
  • cm: translation vectors (3), position (1)
  • pmm: translation vectors (3), position (2)
  • pmg: translation vectors (3), position (2)
  • pgg: translation vectors (3), position (2)
  • cmm: translation vectors (3), position (2)

Thus the numbers of degrees of freedom are:

  • 6 for p2
  • 5 for pmm, pmg, pgg, and cmm
  • 4 for the rest.

Proposed deletion of Den Haag (novel)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Den Haag (novel) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Unremarkable novel.

While all constructive 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. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.
