Welcome![edit]

Some cookies to welcome you! Face-smile.svg

Welcome to Wikipedia, RobertHannah89! I am DaGizza and have been editing Wikipedia for quite some time. Thank you for your contributions. I just wanted to say hi and welcome you to Wikipedia! If you have any questions check out Wikipedia:Questions, or feel free to leave me a message on my talk page or type {{helpme}} at the bottom of this page. I love to help new users, so don't be afraid to leave a message! I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are some pages that you might find helpful:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Also, when you post on talk pages you should sign your name using four tildes (~~~~); that should automatically produce your username and the date after your post. Again, welcome!

Renaming articles (ie. "moving" them)[edit]

Hi. As the link WP:AUTOCONFIRM describes you should be able to rename whichever article you wish except for an extreme minority of articles which are protected. WP:MOVE describes the process in further detail. If you are using the new beta version of Wikipedia just like me, then you click on the down arrow near the "History" sign at the top of the screen and then choose the "Move" option. It will ask you what you want the article to be renamed as and you can justify why you are changing the article's name in a box just like in normal editing. Feel free to ask any question you like. There is also a Help Desk where you can post questions and experienced users will respond to them ASAP. GizzaDiscuss © 12:59, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

Hey I renamed all three of them. Only one of them seemed to be problematic (PRF) because it required deleting the redirect first. I've noticed that someone has tagged a couple of the article with "insufficient context". The only suggestion I can think of is perhaps adding an introductory sentence referring to the parent concepts of Advantage and cryptography in each of them. But you can whoever added those tags on their talk page. Go to "History" at the top and then you will find a link to the user's talk page (in fact you will find links to anyone who has edited the article).
Oh and you can bother me as much as you like. I'm very free in terms of Wiki these days. :) GizzaDiscuss © 02:27, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

Re:Few Questions[edit]

  • I have never seen anyone with the pie chart on their user page itself. The closest thing I have seen is a link to the edit count and contributions statistics. I don't think it is possible to include an automatically updating pie chart.
  • I haven't used citations for a long time now so you will get a much better response on the WT:CITE discussion page. This is quite an active discussion page so I'm sure you will get a response within a day or so.
  • Not quite sure if this answers your last question but you can add a specific in-line tag to a unreferenced sentence using the {{Citation needed}} or {{Cn}} template. If you want tag the entire article or section as lacking citations you can add the {{Unreferenced}} or {{Unreferenced section}} templates respectively. Template:Unreferenced describes additional parameters you can add to the tag (like since when the tag has been added, etc.) If an article is partially but not sufficiently referenced there is a template {{Refimprove}} which can be used.
  • But I'm not sure if this is what you're asking. If you're talking about the laborious task of adding these tags to every sentence then there may be automated tools that help you (though I cannot guarantee it). There are heaps of "gadgets" or tools that automate things and facilitate doing certain tasks on Wiki. Go to "My Preferences" and then click on "Gadgets" located at the right end. I'm not familiar with all of them but perhaps "Reftools" and "Provelt" are of use to you. Clicking on the links should give you a better idea of what they are about.

organizing an article[edit]

Hello.

Please notice my edits to trapping region. The phrase "Given a dynamical system..." is not a very good way to start a Wikipedia article. It doesn't tell the lay reader that applied mathematics is what it's about.

Also, linking to compact is silly. Compact, as you ought to expect, is a disambiguation page linking to articles about compact cars, interstate compacts, certain cosmetics (compact (cosmetics)), etc. etc. I directed that link to compact space. Michael Hardy (talk) 02:32, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

Re Progressively measurable process. I suggest you take up the question on the Talk page of that article. But see WP:MOSMATH for requirement for the lead of an article, understandability, etc.. Melcombe (talk) 10:54, 5 August 2011 (UTC)
