What POV means[edit]

An adjective is not POV when the subsequent text amply justifies it. This is clearly the case with Thomas Wharton Jones in the T.H. Huxley article. Macdonald-ross (talk) 07:51, 2 July 2010 (UTC)

I'm not saying that he was not remarkable, but I think it is for the readers of the article, and not for its authors, to decide whether this adjective is justified. - Shinryuu (talk) 08:08, 2 July 2010 (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'. The only thing that's changed is that you will no longer have them marked as minor by default.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. If you are familiar with the contents of WP:MINOR, and believe that it is still beneficial to the encyclopedia to have all your edits marked as such by default, then this discussion will give you the details you need to continue with this functionality indefinitely. 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) 19:16, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Research survey invitation[edit]

Greetings Shinryuu-

My name is Randall Livingstone, and I am a doctoral student at the University of Oregon, studying digital media and online community. I am posting to invite you to participate in my research study exploring the work of Wikipedia editors who are members of WikiProject: Countering Systemic Bias. The online survey should take 20 to 25 minutes to complete and can be found here:

Your responses will help online communication researchers like me to better understand the collaborations, challenges, and purposeful work of Wikipedia editors like you. In addition, at the end of the survey you will have the opportunity to express your interest in a follow-up online interview with the researcher.

This research project has been reviewed and approved by the Wikimedia Research Committee as well as the Office for Protection of Human Subjects at the University of Oregon. For a detailed description of the project, please visit its Meta page. This survey is voluntary, and your confidentiality will be protected. You will have the choice of using your Wikipedia User Name during the research or creating a unique pseudonym. You may skip any question you choose, and you may withdraw at any time. By completing the survey, you are providing consent to participate in the research.

If you have any questions about the study, please contact me via my Talk Page (UOJComm) or via email. My faculty advisor is Dr. Ryan Light. If you have any questions regarding your rights as a research participant, please contact the Office for Protection of Human Subjects at the University of Oregon.

Thank you very much.

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Luther Bible, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Wether (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.

License tagging for File:Raymond Bryan Dillard.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Raymond Bryan Dillard.jpg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information.

To add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia. For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 22:06, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

Science lovers wanted![edit]

Science lovers wanted!
Smithsonian logo color.svg
Hi! I'm serving as the wikipedian-in-residence at the Smithsonian Institution Archives until June! One of my goals as resident, is to work with Wikipedians and staff to improve content on Wikipedia about people who have collections held in the Archives - most of these are scientists who held roles within the Smithsonian and/or federal government. I thought you might like to participate since you are interested in the sciences! Sign up to participate here and dive into articles needing expansion and creation on our to-do list. Feel free to make a request for images or materials at the request page, and of course, if you share your successes at the outcomes page you will receive the SIA barnstar! Thanks for your interest, and I look forward to your participation! Sarah (talk) 21:37, 16 April 2012 (UTC)

Core promoter[edit]

I just saw your note as I was away from WP. I'd deleted the article as an outcome of the ANI, the user had been copying content from within WP and outside WP without paraphrasing or attribution, some of it directly lifted from external sources. Most of the content in the articles were placed in multiple locations so it was quite difficult to figure out what was original and what was copied etc. I can email you the content if you wish to check it for copyvio and for the attribution trail (as a lot of this is CC-BY content and needs attribution, but the user did not provide that). Once you do that I can restore the article without the copyvio parts and add the attribution trail for you to work on. cheers. —SpacemanSpiff 06:48, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

Welcome back. It would be great if you could mail me the article, my address is shinryuu at gmx dot net. I'll try to sift through the mess, Google is my friend ;-) --Shinryuu (talk) 12:26, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
