Hi Quirk, whatever I do on an article please do take it seriously—my user page is a different matter. Regarding the Kalmus article, I'm just a reviewer that approves content onto Wikipedia. I generally don't focus on polishing or reviewing articles once they have been accepted. However, my advise would be the following: any question that you have on how to improve an article ask it at the WP:TEAHOUSE. They will point you in the right direction. For this particular subject the best options would be to: (1) issue what we call a WP:peer review so that other people see it, make suggestions, and improve the article; and/or (2) ask the guys from Wikipedia:WikiProject Physics for help. WikiProjects are group of editors that work together in a particular subject area. Let me know if this helps. —Ahnoneemoos (talk) 20:21, 16 January 2013 (UTC)
Hi Ahnoneemoos, oh, definitely took all of your advice and feedback on the article seriously. It was whether I should be bold and assume I'd got it right afterwards that I was puzzling over! Those are excellent suggestions, thank you. Will follow up on both.

Many thanks again! Admiralquirk (talk) 20:27, 16 January 2013 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:The discovery of the W Particle.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:The discovery of the W Particle.jpg. 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 '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 all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Hazard-Bot (talk) 04:23, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Peter Kalmus by the UA1 detector.png[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Peter Kalmus by the UA1 detector.png. I noticed the description page specifies that this media item is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails the first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media item could be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media item is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the file discussion page, write the reason why this media item is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Fut.Perf. 01:18, 23 March 2013 (UTC)

Hello Admiralquirk. I have thought about this image for some time, and have to agree with FPaS that it's not telling us anything about Professor Kalmus that cannot be described using words alone. Seeing Kalmus standing in front of the equipment does not tell us anything about that equipment or the work performed with it. Regards, -- Dianna (talk) 20:35, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

A note about ISBNs[edit]

ISBN-10s can be exactly, mechanically, and automatically translated into ISBN-13s, and vice versa (as long as the 978-codes last, at least. 979 ISBNs will have no ISBN-10 equivalents.) Therefore it is usually unneeded to specify both in a citation. the ISBN-13s came in in 2007, so books published in that yeat or later should usually state the -13 form, but thisa does not matter much. If you use the form

ISBN 095326095X

with no punctuation after "ISBN" the wiki software will automatically insert a link to a page where various sources can be searched for that particular ISBN, like this:

ISBN 095326095X

This can be very helpful to readers. DES (talk) 02:40, 25 September 2013 (UTC)

I didn't know about that from either the -10 and -13 coding aspects or the wiki function ones. Thanks again - some help in tidying the ISBNs seems to have already been applied to the article, and I have to say that the references do look better with that edit in place.Admiralquirk (talk) 06:22, 25 September 2013 (UTC)

Sig on article[edit]

I do have one question, please - is it OK and proper to remove the talk tag you placed at the start of the Marion Kalmus article? Was that to make sure I saw your message? Only asking because I do want to follow proper process and am genuinely not sure on the correct protocol.

Thank you. Admiralquirk (talk) 06:22, 25 September 2013 (UTC)

I have removed it. It should never have been there, it must have been an editing error on my part. No user should ever sign an article or any part of it. The history tells who contributed what. DES (talk) 20:32, 25 September 2013 (UTC)
No worries. Thank you for clarifying and for removing it. Not going to be able to get much done on the article this evening due to everyday life stuff. But will be working on it tomorrow. Admiralquirk (talk) 20:35, 25 September 2013 (UTC)
Of course. Edit when you can. DES (talk) 23:07, 25 September 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 25[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Marion Kalmus, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page UCL (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.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 11:29, 25 September 2013 (UTC)

A note on indenting talk page comments[edit]

It is customary, although not required, when discussing on talk pages such as this one (not when editing articles) to indent replies below the comments they reply to. This can be doen by puttign colons before the start of each comment/paragraph.

For example the following wiki-code:

Level One 
:Level 2
::Level 3
:Back to 2
::Three again
:::And now 4
::::Five is a longer comment which will wrap around because this is more like a real discussion in which a person has more to say than is at all likely to fit on a single line, so you wind up with a multi-line paragraph. I hope this is clear. This is the last line in the example.

Will produce the following display:

Level One

Level 2
Level 3
Back to 2
Three again
And now 4
Five is a longer comment which will wrap around because this is more like a real discussion in which a person has more to say than is at all likely to fit on a single line, so you wind up with a multi-line paragraph. I hope this is clear. This is the last line in the example.

Using this convention makes it easier to see what comments are in response to which other comments. DES (talk) 23:20, 25 September 2013 (UTC)

That makes sense. Thank you once again.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
