Age of Earth[edit]

Are you quite certain Ri'neref called the entire Age D'ni? I seem to recall a reference only the caverns were named such, and in the Book of D'ni aren't they talking about the Age of Earth? Certainly after Anna/Ti'ana visited D'ni the D'ni would have become aware of the surface. [[User:Anárion|File:Anarion.png]] 08:00, 6 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Fairly certain. I don't recall any reference to "the Age of Earth" in any Myst franchise products. As far as I know, that phrase is a fan creation. I'm almost positive it's explicitly said that Ri'Neref wrote the "Book of D'ni," NOT the "Book of Earth." Earth is the planet, but D'ni is the Age.
If I confirm this in any of the novels I'll post back.

I radically shortened your note on Ahyoheek from Rock, Paper, Scissors, but the info is not lost: it’s now incorporated into D'ni items. [[User:Anárion|Ана́рыён]] 12:29, 12 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Quick note[edit]

"Fiery" is the correct spelling, "Firey" is a common error. Andre (talk) 17:57, Oct 24, 2004 (UTC)

..... You know what, I think I knew that. It's been so many years since I thought about this pet peeve that I forgot which was the cliché mistake and which was correct.
Sorry 'bout that.  ;)

Well, ASU isnt a big name school obviously, and at times I wish I had gone to some place else. My experience with the students there wasnt a very memorable one.

But nowadays I feel that I actually liked ASU, and I'm happy with the experience. The very few Physics professors there were very well educated and superb guides for me. I doubt I wouldve gotten so much personal faculty attention anywhere else. The swimming pool was always empty (which meant more swimming territory for me), costs were affordable, the library was very helpful in providing me what I wanted, the gym was never crowded, and I kinda liked hangin out at the WigWam.

Yeah, I think ASU is under-rated. I hated UCDavis (a top ranked public school) so much, that I quit their grad program. They were definitely overrated. The little lessons of life.

If I were rich, I'd give back to ASU. It was worth it.

PS: The new mascot looks really silly. They have to come up with something better, I hope.--Zereshk 00:29, 11 March 2006 (UTC)

Church of Christ[edit]

Hmm, I think you removed a bit too much content. I've reverted your edit for now. --Ixfd64 02:26, 2 July 2006 (UTC)

Your username[edit]

I love your username. It's the penultimate if I may say so. ;-) ... Kenosis 20:02, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

Your edit to Trombone[edit]

Actually stave (singular) is perfectly usual usage in British English (although I see the article is actually at staff (music), but stave is given equal prominence in the article), but since another paragraph was already using staff, I decided I wouldn't start a revert war :) David Underdown 09:01, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

Gender Justice movement (Church of Christ)[edit]

The Gender Justice movement (Church of Christ) article that you helped create and/or build is in need of serious work. I'm not familiar with any secondary sources that address this, nor are any cited on the article as it now stands. I would not, therefore, be surprised to see it deleted soon. Just thought I'd give you the heads up. Josh a brewer 21:45, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

Typeface specimens[edit]

Hi 75th Trombone (is this a Music man reference)? Thanks, I lay them out in QuarkXPress, save as an EPS, open in Adobe Illustrator, and save type as outlines and then resave as a PNG or SVG. Though SVG is preferable in display, for some reason it does not always display on wiki. If you use XPress let me know and I can send you a document to cannabalize. Or, if you want to creat in another application I can give you RGB color values for the background, etc. once I am at work. You can likely drag a sample onto your desktop and bring it in to anohter application to build in another application. I'll gather some info together on proportion and size, and pass it along.

British English[edit]

I was not trying to 'suppress all mention of the "Sorcerer's Stone" name in the HP:PS article'; that was a discussion about whether it is appropriate to mention the American title on every HP page that mentions HP1. In the end, consensus, i.e. not just I, decided that the name 'Sorcerer's Stone' should be limited to the HP1 article. Please don't criticise, unless you understand the full argument.

With regards to the Ginny Weasley comment, unless you are an idiot, which I doubt, you can tell that it was a joke.

Also, I don't appreciate your tone; I have no 'contempt' of American English, I just find it tiresome when people - with an obvious 'contempt' of British English - decide it should be omnipresent throughout Wikipedia.

I politely suggest you lessen your sarcasm and review the enitre situation, rather than the part that allows you the moral highground, before you start an argument over nothing. asyndeton 10:24, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

For posterity: I deserved this, and I posted an apology. SFT | Talk 16:56, 1 September 2007 (UTC)
No worries here my friend. I know the feeling and I was a bit harsh myself. 'Forgive and forget' and all that. Happy editing! asyndeton 17:57, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

Re: Sig[edit]

No worries. Look at my user page, I basically stole User:Slim Virgin's page. What you did looks good, so that's all that really matters.  BIGNOLE  (Contact me) 20:57, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

You could, but that would only work against you...considering that you've announced it on my page for everyone to see--they would then have a reason to dismiss your claims, all our claims for that matter. You can read Paul's talk page for my take on Brian's comments. There are far more important articles to work on, and if the Buffyverse folks don't want help, then, as some would say, "Let Them Eat Cake". It is unfortunate. I do appreciate your rebuttle argument, even if it was a bit heavy toned. ;) lol. I stopped watching the page awhile ago, and it's probably for the best. You cannot explain what Wikipedia is supposed to be to everyone, they either get it or they don't. Take the bad with the good.  BIGNOLE  (Contact me) 02:49, 24 October 2007 (UTC)

"Samuel Hazo" entry[edit]

I would just like to comment on your edit to the page on Samuel Hazo. I know for a fact that he directed the Intercollegiate Band at the Arkansas All-State Music Conference because I was there. I was a participant in the concert band and jazz band, and I attended the Intercollegiate Band's performance on February 16, 2007. If you need proof of this, respond back on my page (User:Peytonio). Thank you for your time. --RPC (Peytonio) (talk) 01:12, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

  • Alright, I understand why it had to be removed. Thank you for notifying me as to the reasons why it was removed. --RPC (Peytonio) (talk) 23:42, 19 January 2008 (UTC)
