Hello[edit]

Hello i am new to this site. How are you? and is there an actual place on here where you can just casually chat to other users and not aboht topics or aritcals or pages? Mudak568 (talk) 02:57, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

@Mudak568: Wikipedia is not a social networking service but Wikipedia:IRC may be of interest. PrimeHunter (talk) 03:16, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

"containing"[edit]

Hello PrimeHunter, I routinely use the "containing" search to find phrases or word groups within articles or other non-article Wikipedia pages. I use this function to create inbound wikilinks to new articles, for example. Is it possible that our settings are different, or our browsers? Can you please elaborate at the Teahouse? Thank you.

A discussion you may be interested in[edit]

Hello PrimeHunter, as you may recall, you had some suggestions yesterday regarding the Egyptian constitution article here [1]. Someone has suggested here [2] that the article be moved. You may want to provide your input, if you want. Thanks, David O. Johnson (talk) 06:08, 20 January 2014 (UTC)

Primecoin (again)[edit]

Hi PrimeHunter,

I apologize for bothering you again, but I really would love your expert opinion on the question I've asked earlier, which I'll repeat for your convenience:

I don't know how much you've been following Bitcoin and Primecoin, but for our purposes what you need to know is that the "advantage" of Primecoin over Bitcoin is that, if successful, it will lead to huge amounts of resources spent on finding increasingly difficult Cunningham chains (those funds would otherwise be "wasted").

Would you say that the research that will thus be encouraged will be of significant scientific value?

Thanks, -- Meni Rosenfeld (talk) 20:00, 23 January 2014 (UTC)

No, not significant value. It seems all it can do is give further empirical evidence for prime distribution conjectures which are generally believed to be true and already have lots of empirical evidence but cannot be proven or disproven by prime searches like Primecoin. It may have value to the participants that they get a chance to set computational records. Lots of people (including me) spend resources on prime searches for no other purpose. I have set many Cunningham Chain records in the past but not participated in Primecoin. I'm not interested in cryptocurrencies but the chance to set records would be a factor if I had to choose between using cpu time on Primecoin and Bitcoin. PrimeHunter (talk) 20:33, 23 January 2014 (UTC)
Great, thanks! -- Meni Rosenfeld (talk) 21:32, 23 January 2014 (UTC)

User:Bobrayner keeps removing massive sourced content...[edit]

... that he claims does not have a good enough source, but which has not been objected to for nearly 2 years until he came along: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Global_city&diff=592681137&oldid=592637232 As can be seen from the article's Revision history (https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Global_city&action=history), he's done it at least 4 times. I've tried to talk to him about it (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Global_city#The_Economist), but he seems determined to keep removing it until someone powerful enough stops him. He's also the same user whose removal of another section of massive content in the same article was reverted by you last year: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Global_city&diff=553696977&oldid=553675136 - Ujongbakuto (talk) 00:48, 28 January 2014 (UTC)

? & oversættelse[edit]

Må man skrive dansk her?--78.156.109.166 (talk) 20:52, 2 February 2014 (UTC)

Yes. PrimeHunter (talk) 21:47, 28 January 2014 (UTC)
Kan du oversætte: Selvfølge. Gad vide. Desværre. Overhalet?--78.156.109.166 (talk) 20:52, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
Det giver ingen mening. Det er bare nogle usammenhængende ord. Google Translate [3] siger: "Of course, wondering, unfortunately, overtaken". Jeg kan ikke gøre det bedre. PrimeHunter (talk) 21:56, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
OK, skulle nok have separeret dem. Vidste ikke hvad de hedder på engelsk, derfor spurgte jeg. De har ikke noget at gøre med hinanden. Selvfølge var bare noget hvor jeg kom til at tænke på noget hvor jeg skulle bruge ordet (har glemt det ift. hvad) på dansk, men var så nysgerrig efter hvad det hedder på engelsk. "Of course" er ikke rigtigt, det betyder selvfølgelig. Wondering er rigtigt. Ville vide hvad gad vide hedder på engelsk fordi et personale sagde gad vide hvor jeg har lært det henne, for nylig. Det sagde han efter at have taget en nøgle rundt om toppen af hovedet, fordi jeg først tog noget mærkeligt på hoveder, så han ville efterligne. Har hans fulde navn hvis du er interesseret. Unfortunately er rigtigt. Overtaken er rigtigt, pass/passing kan også bruges. Men Google giver flere forslag for hver ord-oversættelse, kan De informere om dette? Og kunne du oversætte stedordet "sin" til engelsk? D'oh, glemte at skrive hvilket sprog De skulle oversætte de fire ord deroppe til. Google/oversættesider er blokeret/blokerede her, hvis du gad vide/undrede dig (undrede dig = wondered; undrer dig = you wonder). ;) Læg mærke til at jeg bad om oversættelsen af selvfølge, ikke selvfølgelig. Hvad med bless fra engelsk til dansk? Undrer mig at jeg skrev mit 1. og 2. indlæg på samme tid, måtte have skrevet det 2. hurtigt, eneste forklaring, ikke? Hvad med by the way fra engelsk til dansk? Overhalet skulle jeg bruge til min wiki. Kom bare til at tænke på hvordan desværre mon hedder på engelsk. --78.156.109.166 (talk) 19:21, 3 February 2014 (UTC)

Konklusion/summary:

  1. Bless
  2. By the way
  3. Sin (dansk stedord)
  4. Selvfølge (alternative oversættelser)
  5. Gad vide (alternative oversættelser)
  6. Desværre (alternative oversættelser)
  7. Overhale (alternative oversættelser)

--78.156.109.166 (talk) 20:33, 3 February 2014 (UTC)

Nogle mulige oversættelser:

  1. Velsign (bless you kan betyde prosit)
  2. Iøvrigt/Forøvrigt
  3. His/Her/Its
  4. Given/Matter of course
  5. I wonder
  6. Unfortunately/Sadly
  7. Overtake/Overhaul/Pass

PrimeHunter (talk) 21:23, 3 February 2014 (UTC) Tak — Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.156.109.166 (talk) 20:01, 4 February 2014 (UTC) His/her/its? Men jeg lærte i "skolen" at man ikke skal bruge ordet "hans" eller "hendes" om den person man skriver om, så skal man bruge sin. Og det er jo netop det his/her betyder (hans/hendes, ikke sin?). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.156.109.166 (talk) 20:03, 4 February 2014 (UTC)

Nogle gåder:

  1. Hvordan udtaler man 21,11?
  2. Hvad betyder 5000000000893484>>>0,00000000001?
  3. Hvad betyder 7 ≠ 1?--78.156.109.166 (talk) 20:07, 4 February 2014 (UTC)
  1. På dansk: Enten En og tyve komma elleve eller En og tyve komma et et. Kommatal bruger punktum (engelsk: period) på engelsk så der ville det skrives 21.11 og udtales Twenty one point eleven eller Twenty one point one one.
  2. 5000000000893484 betyder 5000000000 ganget med sig selv 893484 gange. Se Exponentiation. Det er et tal med 8665875 cifre. >> eller ≫ betyder meget større end. Se Greater than. >>> er nok en variation af det. PrimeHunter (talk) 20:24, 4 February 2014 (UTC)
  3. Det er et lig med tegn med en streg igennem. Det betyder 7 er ikke lig med 1. Se Inequality (mathematics). PrimeHunter (talk) 20:24, 4 February 2014 (UTC)

Rigtige svar:

  1. En-og-tyve komma en en.
  2. Ja. Skrev et > for meget. Hvordan taster jeg det ind i min lommeregner, foruden >?
  3. Ja.--78.156.109.166 (talk) 09:47, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
>> er ikke præcist defineret da "meget større end" er vagt. Jeg har ikke hørt om nogen lommeregner eller program med en "meget større end" operation eller sammenligning. Nogle programmer har ">" (større end) som en operation der f.eks. returnerer true/false eller 1/0, men det er sjældent en lommeregner vil have det. Istedet for at indtaste a>b kan du selv sammenligne a og b for at se hvilken der er størst, eller du kan udregne a-b og se om det er positivt. PrimeHunter (talk) 14:08, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
Mente, hvordan indtaster jeg #2 i min lommeregner, foruden større end-tegnene? Hvordan regnede du det ud?--78.156.109.166 (talk) 19:44, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
De fleste lommeregnere har ikke potensopløftning (exponentiation). Min har med symbolet yx på tasten, f.eks. "3 yx 2" for at beregne 32 = 9. Jeg kender dog ingen lommeregnere der kan håndtere tal så store som 5000000000893484. Jeg beregnede antallet af cifre med PARI/GP der kan regne direkte på tal med millioner af cifre. Jeg kunne også have beregnet antallet af cifre på min lommeregner ved hjælp af logaritmer, uden at beregne selve tallet. Min lommereger har 12 cifre så jeg kan indtaste 0.00000000001 direkte. De fleste har færre cifre. På min lommeregner kunne jeg også have brugt scientific notation or indtastet tallet som 10-11 på flere måder, f.eks 1E-11. PrimeHunter (talk) 21:44, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

Bedste divisortilnærmelse[edit]

Hej Jens,

Jeg er meget optaget af et Best divisor approximation problem jeg er kommet til at tænke på. Da problemet berører primtal tænkte jeg du måske havde noget indsigt, der kunne give mig et passende skub videre? Har også lagt en besked hos Count Iblis og måske bør jeg blot give denne bruger lidt mere tid til at svare.

Bananasoldier (talk) 22:49, 22 February 2014 (UTC)

Hi PrimeHunter! I'm actually a little bit confused. Should I never have ref tags on the Template:whatfishbook page, or do you mean I should never have ref tags on the article page? Also, if I leave the ref tags on the template page itself, the page & quote parameters do not work on the article. Otherwise, if I'm supposed to have the ref tags on the article page, then I've made a big booboo and need to clean up all the articles by adding the tags back on. So, I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place. Thanks, Bananasoldier (talk) 23:01, 22 February 2014 (UTC)

My queries on Help Desk on 24 February re accessing Help Desk and Wiki amendment[edit]

Just wanted to thank you for your clear and helpful answers to my queries yesterday. Sorry I did not specify which amendment I was referring to; I had no idea Wiki had so many amendments running. (I am very new to Wiki editing.) If I knew how, I would award you a pictorial Barnstar, but as I don't, please let me give you one verbally! P123cat1 (talk) 15:27, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

Thanks! We have millions of articles and tens of thousands of editors so there is a large potential for discussion. PrimeHunter (talk) 18:28, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

Thank you![edit]

Your input to my question on the Village Pump, how to search for a word within articles, was given extremely fast and helped me on one of my Wikiproject Biography projects. I was trying to find other people who have died from vasculitis, which was a new cat I created after Harold Ramis died... Not only that, but I was able to clean up an article about a children's author... Thanks again. Juneau Mike (talk) 22:54, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. It was actually Leaky caldron who gave a fast answer. I later linked to a page with more general help. PrimeHunter (talk) 23:41, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

I edited your edit[edit]

I hope you don't mind but I edited your edit. You provided a long link which extended past the normal borders of the page which subsequently messes with the display of the page on smaller screens such as tablets. I converted that bare URL into an external link. I hope you don't mind. Dismas|(talk) 03:59, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

The real curio...[edit]

It seems that that's not a coincidence either, but also works for any number system. You have to change the number of 1 digits to match the base. 1111111 squared in octal is 1234567654321 and 111111111111111 squared in hexadecimal is 123456789ABCDEFEDCBA987654321 :) CodeCat (talk) 03:15, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

I know. It's an old well-known curio I referred to by "the real curio". The IP made an amputated version which required rounding to work. It's clear there is no coincidence and other bases work the same when we calculate 1111111112 as:
  11111111100000000
+  1111111110000000
+   111111111000000
+    11111111100000
+     1111111110000
+      111111111000

Wikidata/interlanguage query[edit]

Hi PrimeHunter. I saw your reply at the Teahouse yesterday, and I wonder whether you might be able to lend a hand with something similar? I'm doing some work on the en-wiki article Juldarigi, and would like to add an interwiki link to ko-wiki's article 줄다리기. Unfortunately, that article already links to the en-wiki page Tug of war, and so I can't add it to the Juldarigi page. I've had a read of WP:Interwiki conflicts, which frankly I can't make head nor tail of, and H:IL isn' a lot of help. Wikidata scares me a bit - can you solve this problem (not the scared bit, that just requires me to man up a little)? Cheers, Yunshui  10:35, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

@Yunshui: This is different from the Teahouse situation. English appears to be the only language with separate articles for Juldarigi and Tug of war. The lead of 줄다리기 is about general tug of war and then there is a section (longer than the lead) about Juldarigi, but interlanguage links are for the topic of the whole article and not a section. I'm not convinced 줄다리기 should link to Juldarigi. If it does anyway, while simultaneously linking to tug of war articles in all other languages, then I don't think it can be done at Wikidata. The end of the article could have the old-style [[en:Juldarigi]] to override Wikidata but I don't know whether any processes will interfere with that. PrimeHunter (talk) 22:25, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
I hadn't even thought of doing it the old-fashioned way - thanks for the suggestion! Yunshui  13:58, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Reimagining Mentorship proposal[edit]

Hi PrimeHunter. I've noticed you spend a good amount of time helping new editors (thanks!), so I wanted to bring your attention to a grant proposal under review. A small team of us want to implement a system of mentorship that focuses on the specific skills new editors want to learn and incorporates the 1-on-1 relationships from the adopt-a-user programs. Please read over our proposal here. At this stage, your feedback would be much appreciated, particularly as you work with new editors on a regular basis, and we want to make our proposal fit the community's needs. You can leave comments on the grant talk page, and if you like the proposal, please feel free to add your endorsement at the bottom of the page.

In addition, we are gathering information and attitudes from experienced editors on the current ways new editors can get help. If you are interested, please consider taking our brief survey here. Thanks very much, I, JethroBT drop me a line 05:47, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

Finding a MW message[edit]

Thanks for your help regarding MediaWiki:Permissionserrorstext-withaction; that wasn't the page I needed, but your https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Cheese&action=delete&uselang=qqx gave me the page I did need. Just curious: what is uselang=qqx — a testing language? It looks interesting and useful, but I've never seen it before and don't know what it can do. Nyttend (talk) 18:14, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

@Nyttend: uselang=qqx just does what you have already seen: It writes the name of MediaWiki namespace messages instead of their content. See mw:qqx. There is a gadget for it: "Add a toolbox link to display the current page with MediaWiki message names replacing their text". The gadget simply adds uselang=qqx to the url so you don't have to do it manually. PrimeHunter (talk) 23:24, 24 April 2014 (UTC)
Thanks so much! I don't remember ever seeing that gadget or hearing of this feature before. I'm always wishing that I knew a MW message name, so this will really be helpful. Nyttend (talk) 23:27, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

"Chihiro number"[edit]

Hi Jens, noticed you just included content about this. Have you ever heard of it described as the Chihiro number before now? I couldn't find any google presence not linked to the Wikipedia article created a couple of days ago...I made a post about it here. Your thoughts would be appreciated. Cheers, Daniel (talk) 13:49, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

I haven't heard of it before and didn't know it was in DYK. I watch Orders of magnitude (numbers) and only fixed an approximation added there today. PrimeHunter (talk) 14:08, 28 April 2014 (UTC)
It appears that the article was a hoax, and there is considerable discussion of what to do to prevent hoaxes at DYK. Robert McClenon (talk) 23:06, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

Editing Logged Out[edit]

Did you edit logged out at the Help Desk in response to a complaint from an IP that the article about Speed had been vandalized? I wouldn't have noticed except that SineBot then signed your post with an IP address? Robert McClenon (talk) 23:06, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

It wasn't my post. SineBot posts a contribs link on the IP address so it's easy to find out what happened. Click the IP address and then the help desk diff [4]. PrimeHunter (talk) 23:11, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

Still not right. This should work (copy it from the source): EMP (talk). You can also simply blank the signature field and disable "Treat the above as wiki markup". That gives a default signature like mine. PrimeHunter (talk) 20:09, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

"such as" does not mean "required"[edit]

Some editors, most aggressively Werieth who has orphaned eight of my USPS licensed uploads for speedy deletion, seem to have taken a phrase from WP:NFLISTS #2 and miscast it. "Images which are discussed in detail in the context of the article body, such as a discussion of the art style, or a contentious element of the work, are preferable to those that simply provide visual identification of the elements." - note: emphasis added.

Only "contextual significance" is REQUIRED by NFCC #8, and critical commentary is only suggested as possible alternative narrative at WP:NFLISTS as "preferable" to simply providing a visual identification of the stamp's design. I am seeking confirmation of existing policy as it applies to the specific image File:Virginia ratification 1988 U.S. stamp.1.jpg being appropriately used on article History of Virginia on stamps at the "Virginia Ratification Convention" discussion.

The stamp itself is named for an event, the Virginia Ratification Convention, the stamp itself is issued on the anniversary of the event by the USPS which said it knew the significance of the date, the encyclopedic narrative places the commemorative stamp itself in the "contextual significance" of NFCC#8--for the context of the article, History of Virginia on stamps, by historical analysis --- though not with a literary critique or artistic commentary which is suggested as preferable to simple description of the stamp design. The unique barbell footprint of the colonial Capitol building gave equal space to royal functions in one wing and colonial legislative functions in the other, so there is even some architectural significance to the design.

I guess my bottom line is, in addition to critical commentary and controversy, I would like to see historical analysis admitted as "contextual significance" for commemoratives in "History of Virginia on stamps" and other topical philately articles. I am not interested in changing policy, simply expanding the administration of the existing regulations in ways which are permitted by policy. This is alternatively belittled as simply asserting all stamps have import, or merely describing the explicit event pictured without any context or significance imparted in historical analysis.

I have expanded my characteristic descriptions of stamps in articles significantly from last month, and I intend to continue to improve. Is this something which can be brought to Media copyright questions, Non-free content, NFCR or village pump? I can find no guideline on which forum to begin with or in what ordered sequence. TheVirginiaHistorian (talk) 17:53, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

I don't work with image policy and cannot help. I only posted to Wikipedia:Media copyright questions#RfC: Is stamp non-free content use explained by WP:NFCI Guideline #3? after investigating Wikipedia:Help desk#Can't find RFC that bot asked me to comment on.

Improper behavior[edit]

PrimeHunter, I was speaking with Spinningspark about the inline audio being used in the morse code page on the village pump and you entered the discussion for no other reason than to make an ad hom about my signature. That was disruptive, if you have problem with my signature drop a note off on my page, or if you really feel strongly about it, put a note on ANI, but don't disrupt a discussion on something else to do that. Yes, your text is still there, I didn't remove it or archive it in any fashion, I'm hoping you'll do that on your own. Thanks KoshVorlon   Angeli i demoni kruzhili nado mnoj 18:27, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

Alphascript Publishing, Betascript Publishing and so on...[edit]

Hi,

I wonder if you are still dealing with those Wikipedia printed rip-offs? They still appear on Amazon and Google Books, but I think I have the answer to the problem: you could (a) get the Wikimedia Foundation to send a cease-and-desist to the publisher (the group) on moral grounds (i.e. quality), and (b) get the Wikimedia Foundation to send letters to the seller that a cease-and-desist on moral grounds was sent to the publisher and they are kindly request to help protect Wikipedia's quality by removing those books. What do you think? Anyway, do you have an example of those ripoffs so I can check if there is anything that the WMF can use to argue for the take-down of the ripoffs?

As a side note, those Wikipedia rip-offs remind me of the POP Stations and iPhone rip-offs that Stuart Ashen reviews. Thanks in advance, --Marianian(talk) 05:06, 21 May 2014 (UTC)

@Marianian: I'm no longer active in this area. I'm a volunteer editor and not a lawyer but I don't see a valid legal reason to go after them. I don't have an example book but they appear to satisfy our license, and Wikipedia deliberately allows reuse of articles. Also, I don't see how it would help protect Wikipedia's quality to remove the books. The victims here are not Wikipedia but the people who buy the books or waste time considering them.

United States Congress members who died in office Article[edit]

I noticed that you recently added Paul Wellstone to the list in the United States Congress members who died in office article, and I was wondering if you noticed my comments on the article's Talk page regarding the need to expand the list to include members of Congress who died in office prior to the 1990s. --TommyBoy (talk) 04:37, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

@TommyBoy: I saw your post but I don't want to spend time adding other people. I was only responding to Wikipedia:Village pump (miscellaneous)/Archive 46#Wellstone death missing from two Wikipedia lists, can someone fix this. PrimeHunter (talk) 08:43, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

Switzerland??[edit]

I have no idea why that was entered, as there is no reference to it in the article I cited! I am not even a football fan! Thank you for correcting this, as I am completely bewildered how that got in there, as I have no memory of writing the phrase (or is it a clause?). I have a feeling it was already there, but, normally, I would insert a "Citation needed" tag, so it was probably me! This is the first time this has happened. Anyhow, thank you!--Soulparadox (talk) 06:52, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

Caroline Wozniacki[edit]

Do you know how ‘Caroline Wozniacki’ is pronounced in Polish? As it is, the article gives the Polish pronunciation for ‘Karolina Woźniacka’. Esszet (talk) 19:56, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

@Esszet: I don't know Polish. I only know both spellings are used in Polish but know nothing about pronunciation. If there is a big difference between the two and both are widespread then maybe we should avoid the issue by not having a Polish pronunciation. Some Polish people would probably disagree but it doesn't seem essential for a Danish athlete in the English Wikipedia. PrimeHunter (talk) 21:43, 18 June 2014 (UTC)
According to this, it's [ʼkaɾɔlajn wɔʑʼɲat͡ski], which is fairly similar to the English pronunciation, so it's probably best relegated to a footnote. Esszet (talk) 21:58, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

Prime number[edit]

Hi. I noticed that this article refers to a couple of databases for 'small' primes, but am wondering if this is up to date as it seems a larger database, publicly available, 'must' be in existence (?).Julzes (talk) 17:26, 2 August 2014 (UTC)

Noone spends a huge amount of storage space on primes an efficient program can quickly compute. People frequently recompute the first trillion primes or more when they need them for something. It takes similar time to compute primes and read them from a harddisk. But the article does have this link:
Based on the text there they must have used an extremely slow program. A fast program would compute 1.4 billion primes in minutes, or seconds if it's really fast and doesn't spend time writing them to disk. http://primesieve.org/#timings says 7s to count 4 billion primes on a fast PC. I don't know a larger public database of primes than http://www.bigprimes.net but it would be a poor use of disk space and bandwidth. List of prime numbers#The first 500 prime numbers mentions a project which computed nearly 1017 primes but didn't store them for good reasons. PrimeHunter (talk) 20:30, 2 August 2014 (UTC)

Okay, thanks. I'm still following up on this as having at least a little value as a project, but it's good to have the fact that you don't believe the links are out of date. FYI, the question--or at least my reason for posing it to you--arose from your curio on prime differences of a prime with primorials through 47#, having 16 digits. I was going to submit or see about submitting the implied sequence to OEIS, but was waiting too long on the answer for through 37# and figured I may as well simply mention the idea to you (assuming this is data you have (Whether or not you think it worth an OEIS sequence I wouldn't know)).Julzes (talk) 19:08, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

If you mean http://primes.utm.edu/curios/page.php/618681508598750923.html then it is already in OEIS. Just enter 618681508598750923 in the OEIS search box. The plus version is also there: oeis:A115786. You can also use search engines like Google to search numbers: https://www.google.com/search?q=618681508598750923. This reveals the Prime Puzzle I computed it for. There are around 1.55×1016 primes below 618681508598750923. It would require thousands of harddisks to store them in a compressed format. Completely impratical, and it would have been useless for my search anyway. I found the number faster than the harddisks for primes above 47# could have been read, by using sieving techniques to skip the large majority of numbers. PrimeHunter (talk) 21:35, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

Well, I probably should have checked OEIS anyway, but my and my computer's efforts were minimal repetitions of effort. I'm sure you're right about the kind of compressions thought of in any detail, including by me. Maybe some combination of piecewise approximations with some kind of compression of the offsets, but years to work out whatever would be ideal.Julzes (talk) 18:17, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

The silly riddle[edit]

Hi! I saw you struggle with the silly riddle at the Teahouse, and you are quite right, the answer is very silly (and adult) and I will not have such talk at the Teahouse.

That's probably not what the 16th century originators of the quote had in mind but anyone can make up a new interpretation and I suppose it may be what the current questioner wants. PrimeHunter (talk) 09:32, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

Tennis article discussion[edit]

Because you and others were instrumental in forming our current tennis guidelines on seasonal articles for special players, I though you might be interested in the re-visit being discussed at talk:projectTennis. Currently, because of input from that 2011 discussion, any singles player skilled enough to win a grand slam tournament is allowed continuous seasonal articles. No grand slam tournament win, no season article. A grand slam tournament win in 2012 allows seasonal articles in 2013 and 2014 whether or not more grand slam tournaments were won. I was against these articles, but even I have to admit it has worked reasonably well and there really haven't been all that many articles made. A recent deletion of the 2013 Maria Sharapova tennis season has brought this to the forefront once again and we at Tennis Project are trying to decide if we leave things as they are or narrow the parameters in several different ways. We could use more input (whether your views have changed or not). I gave the old discussion link so you can see your original thoughts, but all those who gave their view before are being invited to discuss. Thanks.

Hello Prime! Since you also have tried to help new user Russell.mo and are familiar with his MO, I must ask you for some advice.

As you have already been told at User talk:Fuhghettaboutit#THEN and User talk:Cullen328#Then, we need evidence the image has a free license. PrimeHunter (talk) 09:43, 26 October 2014 (UTC)

All registered users can upload images at Commons and all autoconfirmed users (you are autoconfirmed) can upload to Wikipedia. It's not limited to administrators but you have to give license information or the file will probably be deleted. The burden of proof is on the uploader claiming it is not copyrighted. I don't know the license and then I'm not allowed to upload it. Most images on the Internet are copyrighted if no license is specified on the website hosting the image. Wikipedia and the Wikimedia Foundation care about copyright. PrimeHunter (talk) 10:46, 26 October 2014 (UTC)

Draft:Cherzong Vang

Has it been reviewed or deleted ? Cannot seem to find it in the Articles for Submission date of December 14, 2014 when it was first submitted.

Has it been deleted ? If so, for what reason. Or is it still under review ?

It seems to have mysteriously disappeared completely.

Your draft is there in the review queue. I converted the partial url in your question into a wikilink which you can follow. You can also find it in your contributions page. It is listed at Category:AfC submissions by date/14 December 2014, so I don't know why you couldn't see it there. As it says in the review box on the draft, "There are 2987 submissions waiting for review.", so you may well have to wait for more than a month. --David Biddulph (talk) 17:37, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

M15 Half-track[edit]

You cited a refrence incorrectly and seems to be vandalism. You should see this page. http://www.historyofwar.org/articles/weapons_M15_CGMC.html to see how you should properly cite the article. Thanks! Tomandjerry211 (talk) 17:59, 24 December 2014 (UTC)

@Tomandjerry211: You refer to [6]. Wikipedia has its own citation styles and no obligation to use the suggested style in a source. We don't display the url for links but display a title like described at Wikipedia:Citing sources#Links and ID numbers. I guess the source mainly suggests a form with a url so it can be seen in a printed reference. In online pages it's completely normal to display a title on a link instead of the url. Also note that your url was the broken http://www.historyofwar.org/articles/weapons_M15_CMGC.html. I spent time looking for the right page and fixed the url with http://www.historyofwar.org/articles/weapons_M15_CGMC.html (CMGC replaced by CGMC) as the page correctly says. I now see you also got the date wrong. The page says 23 May 2014 and not 16 May 2014. Do not accuse editors of vandalism when they not only act in good faith but also clean up a bunch of your own errors. I came to the page because you asked for help at Wikipedia:Help desk#Problems on my sandbox. Instead of thanking me you make a nonsensical accusation of vandalism.

Sorry on that fact, I did not know about vandalism that much. Thanks for helping me! Tomandjerry211 (talk) 22:48, 24 December 2014 (UTC)

OK, apology accepted. PrimeHunter (talk) 22:56, 24 December 2014 (UTC)
