re: cleanup[edit]

Thanks for the advice - Mattingly23 23:15, 10 Aug 2004 (UTC)


Nice work spotting and tagging Fdz. Just a note, though: it saves us sysops some time if you leave the original content intact, even if it's complete nonsense. Thanks, —No-One Jones (m) 20:53, 27 Sep 2004 (UTC)


I hate to say that your edit is not a good edit at all, the category Bemani artists is for composers who contributed music to the Bemani games. This article also serves as a general introduction for the category of Bemani games.

The category links are prposefully placed there.

I am reverting the edits. SYSS Mouse 22:07, 29 Sep 2004 (UTC)

French communes disambiguation[edit]

I just saw that you moved Pont-l'Évêque, Calvados to Pont-l'Évêque (Calvados). In fact, the common disambiguation format for French communes, when needed, is "commune, departement", not "commune (departement). I am reverting the move. Cheers! olivier 13:36, Nov 9, 2004 (UTC)

I find the former ugly and, more to the point, I don't think it conforms to any usage. Where's this policy ? I thought the only existing policy on place names disambiguation was solely for the USA. IMHO Pont-l'Évêque (Calvados) conforms to general policies on disambig (i.e. Correct title (disambiguating element)). _R_ 14:18, 9 Nov 2004 (UTC)
I cannot see your answer. olivier 14:16, Nov 9, 2004 (UTC)
Sorry. I should have written 'I'm answering'.
I agree with you, there is no written policy, or at least not yet, on this point. Discussions have been massive on the topic. You can have a look at Wikipedia:Naming conventions (city names), and at the very long associated talk page. In fact, no general consensus has yet been found for the issue. This being said, the format "commune, departement" conforms to the general usage in the English Wikipedia, in terms of towns, cities, communes, for places located in most countries, including as you have mentioned, the USA.
I have been working quite a bit on the French communes in the last weeks, and I can assure you that at least 90% of the French communes which are disambiguated, are disambiguated as "commune, departement". Just browse around and you will see by yourself. Again, it is not a defined policy, but the most common de facto usage.
Regarding your point of Correct title (disambiguating element): the "disambiguation element" is generally describing the "correct title", as in Mars (god) and Mars (planet), not giving a precision about the "correct title". So I could imagine, along the same line, having Pont-l'Évêque (commune) and Pont-l'Évêque (cheese) for instance. Unfortunately, there are 2 communes called "Pont-l'Évêque", one in Calvados and one in Oise (see Pont-l'Évêque).
The bottom line is: I slightly prefer "commune, departement", but first of all, I want to have an homogeneous practice across the English Wikipedia. If you want to change "commune, departement" to "commune (departement)", then I would suggest that you first look for other people's opinion, for instance by asking on Wikipedia talk:Naming conventions (city names) and start doing all the changes once you have received some positive feedback. Otherwise, you might have much more people reacting and asking you why you did that. Conclusion: I suggest continuing the usage of "commune, departement". olivier 14:54, Nov 9, 2004 (UTC)

Article Licensing[edit]

Hi, I've started a drive to get users to multi-license all of their contributions that they've made to either (1) all U.S. state, county, and city articles or (2) all articles, using the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike (CC-by-sa) v1.0 and v2.0 Licenses or into the public domain if they prefer. The CC-by-sa license is a true free documentation license that is similar to Wikipedia's license, the GFDL, but it allows other projects, such as WikiTravel, to use our articles. Since you are among the top 2000 Wikipedians by edits, I was wondering if you would be willing to multi-license all of your contributions or at minimum those on the geographic articles. Over 90% of people asked have agreed. For More Information:

To allow us to track those users who muli-license their contributions, many users copy and paste the "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" template into their user page, but there are other options at Template messages/User namespace. The following examples could also copied and pasted into your user page:

Option 1
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions, with the exception of my user pages, as described below:


Option 2
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions to any [[U.S. state]], county, or city article as described below:

Or if you wanted to place your work into the public domain, you could replace "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" with "{{MultiLicensePD}}". If you only prefer using the GFDL, I would like to know that too. Please let me know what you think at my talk page. It's important to know either way so no one keeps asking. -- Ram-Man (comment| talk)

Peru region table[edit]

Hello. Thank you so much for creating that Peruvian region table template. You just made my life much easier. Unfortunately, I've been trying to migrate all the old Peruvian region tables to the tables used on Cusco region or Arequipa region, because they use the standard used on US states and cities, and are better for users with disabilities. I really would appreciate it if you created a template with the table used in Cusco region, and also one for the table used in Camaná province, because I don't know how to do that. Again, thank you. Greetings, --Tuomas hello 19:51, Mar 3, 2005 (UTC)

Conditional templates[edit]

I can't seem to get it to work on {{Infobox_Film}}. I'm using the same method as your Peru template. Can you take a look and let me know what I screwed up? (It's commented out right now.) – flamurai (t) 01:10, Mar 4, 2005 (UTC)


Hi. No, the changes in these tables haven't been discussed anywhere, because nobody else has been working on the Peruvian region article pages as much as I have. Before I started expanding these articles, the last changes made on most of these pages had been in August 2004, so they were pretty much "abandoned".

I made the table used in Ancash region but I decided to change the design to a more widely-used one, and because an user told me it could cause difficulties for people with eye problems who can't see red or other vivid colors.

Thank you for creating the provinces infobox template. I hope the regions one is ready soon, so I can use it on all remaining regions, since only a few are complete. Greetings, Tuomas hello 02:11, Mar 4, 2005 (UTC)

Optional fields on table template[edit]

Hello, I was just wondering if it is possible to make the "Latitude and longitude" part of the region tables optional, because most regions lack this information, only some have it available. Merci beaucoup! --Tuomas hello 04:39, Mar 12, 2005 (UTC)

Do you have a page which documents the purpose and usage of the meta-templates on your user page? Unless I'm misunderstanding, it seems better to work with the developers on a m:Extended template syntax. Meta-templates cause a significant server overhead, as documented at Wikipedia:Avoid using meta-templates. -- Netoholic @ 19:18, 2005 Mar 30 (UTC)

Template usage[edit]

Nice templates. Perhaps you can add Usage to the Talk pages, as recently suggested in Wikipedia:Template_namespace#Usage_instruction. I'd rather not explain them in case I untangled them incorrectly. (SEWilco 06:38, 10 Jun 2005 (UTC))


Bonjour, I was just wondering if you could do me a favor. Could you please add an optional field on Template:Lima district table, between the name of the district and the area fields, where I can put the image of the coat of arms of the district. Not all districts have coat of arms available; I tried creating an optional field but I messed it up. I'd be very thankful if you could do it for me. Greetings, --Tuomas hello 21:59, Jun 25, 2005 (UTC)

<noinclude> in templates[edit]

I have changed your revert on Template:Afd. The way to have <noinclude>interwikis</noinclude> in that template is to write it on a separate line (or with spaces before and after). There is now no more problem in articles which call this template, and the template keeps interlanguage links. :o) Hégésippe | ±Θ± 19:04, 21 September 2005 (UTC)

A deletion discussion in which you voted, that of Template:Catholic-link, is up for deletion review, where the template may be deleted or retained depending upon the review discussion. You are welcome to comment and/or vote at Wikipedia:Deletion review#Template:Catholic-link. The key point of this discussion is whether the "default keep by no consensus" result was correct; discussion of the template itself is secondary (but may still be important). — coelacan talk — 04:39, 16 January 2007 (UTC)


Hello, I saw you changed some lines of this article as hoax. I ask you to verify this information writing to the publisher Armiane in Versailles. You can find all informations and adress on Google. The director is able to explain you that lots of work and the oboe concerto were written for this musician. The best way is certainly join the musician at this mail adress. He have all original scores. 23:18, 27 october 2007 (CEST)

XXXX syndrome[edit]

That was not sneaky vandalisum. I found it on the website that I cited. I will make a refernence of it so that futer editers will not be confused.Miagirljmw14 (talk) 19:38, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

OK, but please cite your source, and the next time you revert state your reasons in the edit summary. The statement is dubious for the following reason: by definition, average IQ is 100, so XXXX patients have their IQ lowered by 30 to 40 points, which means they have 3 extra X chromosomes. _R_ (talk) 22:40, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

re: Links[edit]

Thanks for the advice. however the link that were previously deleted were citations of sources and did provided more detailed information than that on the wiki page, both are reasons cited in Wikipedia policy as acceptable uses. The links and images that I have tried to place are simply to give further information to the subject matter if that appeared to be a conflict of interest than I apologize and will strive to be better in the future.

Your edit on Beta function of June 16, 2009[edit]

Hi Rorro, I've noticed that recently you have simplyfied a long section on the proof of Γ(x+y)B(x,y) = Γ(x)Γ(y) in the article on the Beta function. I've reinserted the proof via convolution, because it is very short, and, you certainly agree, it is of immediate comprehension to any reader with a bit of knowledge of Functional Analysis. I hope it's ok for you. Cheers! --pma (talk) 23:51, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being minor in the usual way.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. With the script in place, you can continue with this functionality indefinitely (its use is governed by WP:MINOR). If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 19:10, 15 March 2011 (UTC)
