Nengo[edit]

In response to your diff here, two small steps have been taken.

  1. The Nengo redirect page has been converted into a disambiguation page; and
  2. A stub article about a Neural Engineering Object has been drafted.

It is possible that the notability of this subject may be challenged? --Enkyo2 (talk) 01:58, 24 August 2013 (UTC)

-- Thanks Enkyo, have some experts in the nengo community adding many notability elements. Pdecalculus (talk) 17:12, 26 August 2013 (UTC)

No Paid Edits Per New Terms added in 2014[edit]

This will disclose that I am a retired math professor and edit Wikipedia for the sake of users, and am not paid for my work. I am wealthy and a large donor to Wiki and other educational nonprofits. I have no bias in my edits, and most are scientific and technical, and you don't make much money promoting Euler or Katherine Freese.

This note is to meet the new editing requirements implemented as terms in 2014 that paid editing be stopped or at least disclosed. I'm guessing this practice is likely more prevalent in PR agencies writing about companies or business issues than science, but I suppose Universities hire PR firms too! Bravo to Wikimedia for attempting to stay unbiased.

I love that the Wiki lawyers advised that you should edit Wiki "for fun." Now what's the legal term for that? Some of the pit bull admins, I have to say, don't seem to be having a lot of fun here. ;=)Pdecalculus (talk) 13:51, 17 June 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 27[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Best places in the US to retire, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Media. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

ACTUALLY LITTLE BOT disambiguation is EXACTLY what I intended, as media there covers tv, magazines, etc.!

Root extraction[edit]

Hi, Root extraction still needs a major cleanup, there's a discussion at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Disambiguation#Root extraction (disambiguation)- Is it even warranted? where I suggest you may want to go in one of two directions, which I will leave for you. Until then, the cleanup tag should stay as about 90% is deletable as a dab page. Widefox; talk 13:12, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

February 2015[edit]

Information icon Thank you for your edit to the disambiguation page Root extraction. However, please note that disambiguation pages are not articles; rather, they are meant to help readers find a specific article quickly and easily. From the disambiguation dos and don'ts, you should:

  • Be familiar with the guidelines and style
  • Only list articles that readers might reasonably be looking for
  • Use short sentence fragment descriptions, with no punctuation at the end
  • Use exactly one navigable link ("blue link") in each entry
    • Only add a "red link" if used in an article, and include the "blue link" to that article
  • Do not pipe links (unless style requires it) – keep the full title of the article visible
  • Do not insert external links or references

Here's some links so you know about the format... Widefox; talk 13:13, 19 February 2015 (UTC)
