Wikipedia:WikiProject Constellations[edit]

I see that you are listed as a contributor for this project. Because the project is incomplete, I would like to find out what the current plans are for the project. Much work is still needed, particularly for constellations in the southern sky. I believe we need to do the following:

  1. Complete the infobox for each constellation.
  2. Standardise the format for each constellation.

On my user page, I have posted a few ideas for standardisation and I would like some feedback. --  B.d.mills  (T, C)

Rondane[edit]

Hallo Sverdrup, da ich hier Deutsch schreiben darf, werde ich das mal machen. Deutsch fällt mir doch wesentlich leichter als Englisch. Ich habe den Artikel de:Rondane gerade nach Deutsch übersetzt. Vielleicht magst Du ihn Dir ja mal anschauen. Weshalb ich Dir schreibe: Noch fehlen die Bilder. Magst Du vielleicht Deine Bilder auf die Wikimedia-Commons hochladen? Ich könnte es zwar auch, aber ich finde es besser, wenn ich mich da nicht mit fremden Federn schmücke. Daher wollte ich es Dir überlassen, auch auf Commons der Hochlader zu sein. Danke, --Elwe 13:31, 3 August 2005 (UTC)

Thankees![edit]

Thank you so very much for your Wikipreview.html... That seems to be exactly what I'm looking for.  :) You might want to tell Pilaf about it, I'm sure he'd find it useful... Almafeta 10:44, 20 August 2005 (UTC)

You are welcome; it's really Pilaf's work all of it, the parser being the most important component. I've already told him about it. Please tell me about any problems/bugs there might be, though. It have not exactly tested it thoroughly. — Sverdrup 10:48, 20 August 2005 (UTC)

Changing the Announcement and Goings-on page[edit]

Thank you for responding to my request to change the Wikipedia:Announcements and Wikipedia:Goings-on pages (see Wikipedia:Village pump (policy)#Announcements and Goings-on. But I would like your opinion about the steps needed to change the Goings-on page, its new design, and how to advertise it to the community. Thank you. CG 18:02, August 27, 2005 (UTC)

Bilder[edit]

Denna bild sv:Bild:User-Sverdrup-2004-04.jpg saknar källa och licens. Märk den gärna, då bilder utan märkning kan den komma att raderas. Mvh Elinnea 11:48, 5 September 2005 (UTC)

hej hej jag heter cooper gillan. jag är amerikansk, men jag har studerat svenska. jag skriver bara för att fråga dig om bilden på ikeas sida. var ligger butiken på bilden? det är en fint bild! jag var i jönköping i januari till maj. jag har en kompis som bor i kristianstad och jag har en skåne flag!! hoppas att allt är bra. hejdå. NPPyzixBlan 21:14, September 10, 2005 (UTC)

hej, tack för meddelandet. a, du tänkte rätt, bilden som du hade var bilden jag menade. jag frågade om den bara därför att jag tyckte att det var lite konstigt att se en ikea utan blå och gul, eller hur? jag har mycket ikea på min lägenhet, och det finns mycket ikea på mitt universitet. hej, tycker du om dungen? de är svensk och min kompis frågade mig en gång om jag kunde förstå texter, men....hehe, inte så mycket. jag försöker. jag har en amerikansk kompis som studerade på lunds universitet för tre år sedan, och hon älskade lund. men alla älskar sverige, eller hur?? tack och hejdå. NPPyzixBlan 23:27, September 11, 2005 (UTC)

Hej Sverdup Den fina rondanebilden på flakksfjellet, nu har jag försökt göra så att man kan se att det är jag som har tatt den, inte du, men jag fattar inte hur man gör. Inte för att det spelar någon roll eller så, rent licensmässigt är den din. Jag har abra fruktansvärt tråkigt och lång håltimme. // Sverdrup d.y

Jeje, jag har fixat det. On a related note, har jag 100Mbit anslutning nu XD. Sverdrup❞ 14:44, 23 January 2006 (UTC)

Martian longitude[edit]

In your edit summary to Olympus Mons, you said, "226 E?? there are only 180 of those, so the link doesn't work. Fixed to 134 W, verified that the link works and displays olympus mons in the applet." On Mars, longitude ranges from 0° to 360°--eastward or westward, depending on your mood. For instance, see Image:MarsTopoMap-PIA02031 modest.jpg

"You can now view the coordinates for Mars in two different systems: planetographic latitude with longitude increasing to the west, or planetocentric latitude with longitude increasing to the east. Both systems are approved for use on Mars by the International Astronomical Union (Seidelmann and others 2002).
"Planetographic latitude with west longitude is the system that has traditionally been used for Mars, and was previously the only system used on this web site. Planetocentric latitude with east longitude has been adopted for use by the USGS and other organizations for use in making future Mars maps and imagery (Duxbury and others 2002)."

—wwoods 17:56, 4 November 2005 (UTC)

Thank you for the clarification! Unfortunately the link didn't work (the link to the kvaleberg map sources) with 226° E, so we had to change it. I hope it's no big deal as both sets of coordinates describe the same spot, with different but accepted standards. — Sverdrup 11:02, 5 November 2005 (UTC)

long articles[edit]

Thank you for your comments. I am, of course, not trying to own articles, and am well aware of the "editing mercilessly" policy. I was thinking merely of maintaining internal stability in an article while I am in the white-hot throes of creation. It was only a hypothetical question anyway!--Anthony.bradbury 20:40, 3 June 2006 (UTC)

Know you will be interested in this. The current content is very USA centric, but can be managed. The project would certainly benefit from your international perspective. -- Paleorthid 06:23, 8 June 2006 (UTC)

Hei, du har et brukerbilde på no, no:Bilde:User-Sverdrup-2004-04.jpg som er lisensiert med en utfaset lisens, og hvor det står "Do not copy". Kan du være så snill relisensiere det med fri lisens snarest mulig, eller si fra om du vil at det da heller skal slettes. Cnyborg 19:56, 21 June 2006 (UTC)

Economy of Africa[edit]

Hi, you were a contributor to this article, which is on the verge of being delisted as a FA. Can you return to help? Urgently requires inline citations and enhanced information in a few places. It's been copy-edited nicely by Peirigill. Tony 04:10, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

baseball color line[edit]

In this edit, you wrote

"any club including one or more colored persons."

Whom were you quoting? Please see talk:baseball color line. Apparently your information contradicts information added later, and the article has been that way for a long time. Michael Hardy 02:12, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

That's a hard question! I can't remember, but I have searched around now; I can find something like that quoted at [1], where it says "any club which may be composed of one or more colored persons." I can't say for sure if this was my original source and/or if I modified the quote. I don't think the truth of the statement is at risk, but finding sources is always good (as we think now two years later. Sourcing statements wasn't practice at all in 2004). Sverdrup❞ 15:36, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

commons:Image:Cyclohexane-structure3.png[edit]

Hello, i just move this image on Commons. Some french user want to create http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Cyclohexane.PNG but there are a stupid license incompatibility. What do you think about releasing your image in both GFDL and CC-BY-SA-2.5. Have you a Commons account ? And can you update the image description with it ? Thanks a lot. Please say me what you want to do. ~ fr:user:bayo 193.248.39.8 00:53, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

Hey, I fixed that. I marked it as PD on commons, since that sounds like the simplest solution for now. Sverdrup❞ 19:50, 9 January 2007 (UTC)q

Image copyright problem with Image:U-Svdp.png[edit]

Thank you for uploading Image:U-Svdp.png. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the image. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. Shyam (T/C) 10:39, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

New glider image[edit]

Hello, Sverdrup! What do you think of replacing Image:GameOfLife.GIF with Image:Animated glider emblem.gif on the pages where it's used, and then being able to "retire" (i.e., delete) GameOfLife.GIF? (As you can tell, I like to keep things simple. :) --Quuxplusone 07:20, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

Well I shouldn't be the deciding factor here, but I think your image is much better, particularly for use in articles. While perhaps not as clear, my "clipped" version is a bit confusing. You can delete the old one if you want to, but I see there is one use of it here too: User:Green meklar/Userboxes. Regards, Sverdrup❞ 15:23, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

Rondane[edit]

Hi Sverdrup! I just wanted to tell you that I'm translating the article Rondane National Park, and I'm going to postulate it at featured articles. You can see it here.

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Susning.nu-logo.png)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Susning.nu-logo.png. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 05:02, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:TextEdit-screenshot.png[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:TextEdit-screenshot.png. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. moɳo 00:49, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:TextEdit-screenshot.png[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on File:TextEdit-screenshot.png requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image is an unused redundant copy (all pixels the same or scaled down) of an image in the same file format, which is on Wikipedia (not on Commons), and all inward links have been updated.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. moɳo 03:00, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Date-format-1May.png[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thank you for uploading File:Date-format-1May.png. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of that website's terms of use of its content. However, if the copyright holder is a party unaffiliated from the website's publisher, that copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider verifying that you have specified sources for those files as well. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged per Wikipedia's criteria for speedy deletion, F4. If the image is copyrighted and non-free, the image will be deleted 48 hours after 07:05, 26 May 2010 (UTC) per speedy deletion criterion F7. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. FASTILYsock(TALK) 07:05, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of that website's terms of use of its content. However, if the copyright holder is a party unaffiliated from the website's publisher, that copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider verifying that you have specified sources for those files as well. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged per Wikipedia's criteria for speedy deletion, F4. If the image is copyrighted and non-free, the image will be deleted 48 hours after 20:51, 29 August 2010 (UTC) per speedy deletion criterion F7.

Robert Abbott[edit]

I looked through the revision history of Robert Abbott (game designer), and noticed that you added some stuff when it first started out. I just wanted to let you know that I've written a large amount of stuff for the article, and I am still wanting to go further with it, so if there is any help that you could give me, I would appreciate it. ~~ Hi878 (Come shout at me!) 03:00, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Niall Williams[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Niall Williams requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion," which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Maher-shalal-hashbaz (talk) 11:02, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Niall Williams[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Niall Williams has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

There are no reliable third-party sources for this article.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

MSU Interview[edit]

Dear Sverdrup,

My name is Jonathan Obar user:Jaobar, I'm a professor in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences at Michigan State University and a Teaching Fellow with the Wikimedia Foundation's Education Program. This semester I've been running a little experiment at MSU, a class where we teach students about becoming Wikipedia administrators. Not a lot is known about your community, and our students (who are fascinated by wiki-culture by the way!) want to learn how you do what you do, and why you do it. A while back I proposed this idea (the class) to the communityHERE, where it was met mainly with positive feedback. Anyhow, I'd like my students to speak with a few administrators to get a sense of admin experiences, training, motivations, likes, dislikes, etc. We were wondering if you'd be interested in speaking with one of our students.


So a few things about the interviews:

  • Interviews will last between 15 and 30 minutes.
  • Interviews can be conducted over skype (preferred), IRC or email. (You choose the form of communication based upon your comfort level, time, etc.)
  • All interviews will be completely anonymous, meaning that you (real name and/or pseudonym) will never be identified in any of our materials, unless you give the interviewer permission to do so.
  • All interviews will be completely voluntary. You are under no obligation to say yes to an interview, and can say no and stop or leave the interview at any time.
  • The entire interview process is being overseen by MSU's institutional review board (ethics review). This means that all questions have been approved by the university and all students have been trained how to conduct interviews ethically and properly.


Bottom line is that we really need your help, and would really appreciate the opportunity to speak with you. If interested, please send me an email at obar@msu.edu (to maintain anonymity) and I will add your name to my offline contact list. If you feel comfortable doing so, you can post your nameHERE instead.

If you have questions or concerns at any time, feel free to email me at obar@msu.edu. I will be more than happy to speak with you.

Thanks in advance for your help. We have a lot to learn from you.

Sincerely,

Jonathan Obar --Jaobar — Preceding unsigned comment added by 35.9.115.210 (talk) 20:12, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

Invitation to events in June and July: bot, script, template, and Gadget makers wanted[edit]

I invite you to the yearly Berlin hackathon, 1-3 June. Registration is now open. If you need financial assistance or help with visa or hotel, then please register by May 1st and mention it in the registration form.

This is the premier event for the MediaWiki and Wikimedia technical community. We'll be hacking, designing, teaching, and socialising, primarily talking about ResourceLoader and Gadgets (extending functionality with JavaScript), the switch to Lua for templates, Wikidata, and Wikimedia Labs.

We want to bring 100-150 people together, including lots of people who have not attended such events before. User scripts, gadgets, API use, Toolserver, Wikimedia Labs, mobile, structured data, templates -- if you are into any of these things, we want you to come!

I also thought you might want to know about other upcoming events where you can learn more about MediaWiki customization and development, how to best use the web API for bots, and various upcoming features and changes. We'd love to have power users, bot maintainers and writers, and template makers at these events so we can all learn from each other and chat about what needs doing.

Check out the the developers' days preceding Wikimania in July in Washington, DC and our other events.

Best wishes! - Sumana Harihareswara, Wikimedia Foundation's Volunteer Development Coordinator. Please reply on my talk page, here or at mediawiki.org. Sumana Harihareswara, Wikimedia Foundation Volunteer Development Coordinator 02:37, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
