It makes me very happy that an article that I started, which to me is about an important subject,to see that two years later, it has only been improved by each and every editor that has touched it. No conflict, only improvement . Thank you all! DanielDemaret 17:59, 7 March 2006 (UTC)

The french version and the portuguese versions are a lot longer, and the finnish has a new picture, so perhaps I shall try and bring this in hereDanielDemaret 11:29, 26 March 2006 (UTC)

I wonder what would be necessary to make this a featured article? DanielDemaret 12:10, 26 March 2006 (UTC)


Hello there Jwy.

Thank you for taking an interest in the article. I started the article in May 2004, and not much of substance has happened to it since then. Today someone posted a finnish link, I got interested in looking at the other links and therefore I looked thru them.

I found that the Portuguese version was a featured article, so I decided to see if one could start improving this a bit. I added some text from the Portuguese version, some from the French, stole a picture from the finnish version, added more sections and some more text from the original text.

It is far from done, but I prefer to experiment my way forwards. Since very few others edit here, I thought I was alone :)

I think images can be a good way of illustrating and lightening up an article so I decided to add a picture of a cartesian coordinate system along the word "cartesian coordinates", and I thought a bit of basic calculus notation might be appropriate beside the calculus version.

Are you interested in improving content and layout to this article too? DanielDemaret 21:30, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
