Wikipedia's position on British vs. American spelling[edit]

Since you asked... Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style#National_varieties_of_English --Lukobe 16:58, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

Your request to be unblocked has been granted for the following reason(s):

[1] - if you have any further trouble with this (ie. if you still can't edit), repost {{unblock-auto}}.

Request handled by: Daniel.Bryant 04:22, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

I've contacted Dmcdevit (the blocker); this appears to be a rangeblock (given there's no block log entry for, and it's not an autoblock), probably made from results of a checkuser. Just reminding all administrators to read and remember {{checkuserblock}} when dealing with this. Cheers, Daniel.Bryant 03:27, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

I am connecting via my blackberry modem, whose IPs all seem to be blocked (not sure if they are Sprints or RIMMs). Although, it doesn't really make sense to me since I'm logging in with my account which is quite old at this point. Aepryus 14:04, 30 January 2007 (UTC)

Unblock request[edit]

Clearing an autoblock

Due to the nature of the block applied we need additional information before we can decide whether to unblock you. It is very likely that you are not personally blocked. If you are prevented from editing, it may be because you are autoblocked or blocked because of your IP address. Without further details there is nothing further we can do to review or lift your block. Please follow these instructions:

  1. If you have a Wikipedia account, please ensure that you are logged in.
    Your account name will be visible in the top right of this page if you are.
    If it isn't, try bypassing your web browser's cache.
  2. Try to edit the Sandbox.
  3. If you are still blocked, copy the {{unblock-auto|...}} code generated for you under the "IP blocked?" section. This is usually hidden within the "What do I do now?" section. If so, just click the "[show]" link to the right hand side to show this text.
  4. Paste the code at the bottom of your user talk page and click save.
  5. If you cannot edit your own talk page, then use the Unblock Ticket Request System.

If you are not blocked from editing the sandbox then the autoblock on your IP address has already expired and you can resume editing. --  Netsnipe  ►  06:42, 31 January 2007 (UTC)

Walther P22 disputes continues[edit]

Hello. The discussion of whether to include a mention of the Virginia Tech massacre at the Walther P22 article continues. Earlier, a compromise was reached to include a mention of the Viriginia Tech massacre in a "See Also" section of this article, but now that idea is being debated. Care to weigh in? The Walther P22 is being discussed here. Griot 16:34, 30 April 2007 (UTC)

Coins problem at RD/S[edit]

Hi Aepryus. Since you asked for more clarification, I added another post about the coins problem to the archived RD page. --mglg(talk) 16:46, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

Meanwhile, I've been discussing numerical solutions on mglg's talk page; there's Mathematica code there for a numerical solver (for the duration that the coins are in contact) if you're interested. If you can't run that and don't want to just transcode it into your own animator, I can provide a GIF of the (first bit of) motion. --Tardis 22:02, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:BMW Welt Side.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Wright brothers FAR[edit]

Hi Aepryus! You recently nominated the article Wright brothers for featured article review. This forum is for the review of articles which already have featured status, and not for awarding featured status. For that, you need to go to the featured article candidacy page. However, although the Wright brothers article is a nice article (and has already been awarded good article status), it is probably not ready for FAC at this point. There are large portions of the article that are unreferenced, which will be a major issue in any review, as well as more minor issues such as improperly formatted references and missing alt text. If you would like to take the article to FA, I would sugges working on the referencing and then taking the article through peer review, having several people who specialize in prose, references and MOS look over the article, and then nominator for FAC. This process will make your trip through FAC much easier, and the candidacy will be much less likely to be archived as unsuccessful. In the meantime, I have removed the listing from the FAR page and nominated the review page for a speedy deletion on technical grounds. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Mary I of England[edit]

I just wanted to send you a note to say that someone reverted your edit to Mary I of England. I looked it over and they are correct. Lady Jane Grey's page says she is the great-granddaughter of Henry VII which would make the statement on Mary I of England correct when they say she was the granddaughter of Henry VIII. Just thought I'd let you know. —    Bill W.    (Talk)  (Contrib)  — 16:57, 12 February 2014 (UTC)
