Your exoplanet radius charts[edit]

Just to let you know I've started a discussion of your radius charts here. I suspect they may constitute original research and in some cases may be misleading. Icalanise (talk) 22:41, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

Re: COROT or CoRoT[edit]

There probably is a good case for moving the planet/star articles to CoRoT because the scientific literature appears to be fairly consistent in this usage. For the satellite itself it is less clear, certainly the various mission websites and press releases are quite inconsistent. You're also up against people claiming that the Manual of Style tells us to avoid odd capitalisation schemes, whether it actually does or doesn't may or may not be another matter. Presumably we should be consistent whatever the decision. As you can see the idea of using CoRoT was shot down when I tried to move it before. Icalanise (talk) 21:43, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

I agree with your thinking: the satellite and mission can stay COROT (there's enough inconsistency in the literature), but the planet and star articles should move to CoRoT (the relevant literature is quite consistent). I don't think those who would argue that Manual of Style has anything to say against this have a leg to stand on. AldaronT/C 22:07, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

Babylon 5 Centauri not from Alpha Centauri[edit]

Hi, you made an edit to the Alpha Centauri page asking for a source on the changes I made. Later in the paragraph, I listed two possible explanations for the confusion, one with an external source, the other that was mentioned elsewhere in wikipedia but for which I could not find a source. I'm new to editing so wondering if I could have structured this better when providing the one source I could find? MikeBz (talk) 21:48, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

Renaming request[edit]

Hi, could you please confirm your request to be renamed at the Dutch Wikipedia? Please do so here and then notify us at w:nl:WP:HA. --Erwin (talk) 13:32, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

Planet radius of unknown size.[edit]

I read the section on the discussion of unknown radius of exoplanets. Possibly putting a question mark in the center of the circle would be good. Thanks, Marasama (talk) 23:58, 4 February 2010 (UTC)

I like that idea. Next time I update I'll experiment with it. AldaronT/C 00:01, 5 February 2010 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:BGG-FrontPage-2006-07.jpg[edit]


Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:BGG-FrontPage-2006-07.jpg. 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. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 14:55, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Redaktor Wikipedia 600px.png

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, will be commencing a two-month trial at approximately 23:00, 2010 June 15 (UTC).

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under flagged protection. Flagged protection is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 18:14, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

Looking for Wikipedia Ambassadors[edit]

Hi! I'm leaving you this message because you are listed as a Wikipedian associated with Harvard. The Wikipedia Ambassador Program is currently looking for Campus Ambassadors to help with Wikipedia assignments at schools in Boston and Cambridge (including Harvard), which will be participating in the Public Policy Initiative for the Spring 2011 semester. The role of Campus Ambassadors will be to provide face-to-face training and support for students on Wikipedia-related skills (how to edit articles, how to add references, etc.). This includes doing in-class presentations, running workshops and labs, possibly holding office hours, and in general providing in-person mentorship for students.

Prior Wikipedia skills are not required for the role, as training will be provided for all Campus Ambassadors (although, of course, being an experienced editor is a plus).

If you live near Boston and you are interested in being a Wikipedia Campus Ambassador, or know someone else from the area who might be, please email me or leave a message on my talk page.

If you're an experienced and active Wikipedian, you might be interested alternatively in becoming an Online Ambassador. The role of Online Ambassadors is to serve as mentors for students; it doesn't require any in-person outreach. Take a look at the Online Ambassador guidelines; the "mentorship process" describes roughly what will be expected of mentors in the coming term. If that's something you want to do, please apply!

You can find instructions for applying at WP:ONLINE. The main things we're looking for in Online Ambassadors are friendliness, regular activity (since mentorship is a commitment that spans several months), and the ability to give detailed, substantive feedback on articles (both short new articles, and longer, more mature ones).

inductive reasoning vs. scientific reasoning[edit]

Hi Aldaron, I came across this edit and was wondering what you mean by "scientific reasoning". Is there an article that describes the distinction you're making, and the sense in which the two are often confused? Scientific reasoning redirects to Models of scientific inquiry which mentions that both deduction and induction are used in science. Is that what you mean, that they're different in that induction is part of scientific reasoning but not the whole? --Allen (talk) 17:18, 3 October 2013 (UTC)

Exoplanet by discovery method: transit at ~80 AU?[edit]

Hi, in your plot I noted the green dot far to the right. If it is not an error, which star is that? It is so far away from the other transit planets that it should get a label I think. --mfb (talk) 14:55, 25 January 2016 (UTC)

Hello Aldaron. Are you taking part in the GA review of this article? If so, please introduce yourself on the review page and explain what your issue is. SpinningSpark 12:01, 15 February 2017 (UTC)


I don't know how you did it, but the singular concatenated symbol "fi" was used instead of plain-text "fi" with this edit on Lissajous orbit, and not fixed until today (8.5 years later!). It broke (well, created what I thought was an exception to/a bug in) my script, so I thought I'd let you know to try to keep it from happening.   ~ Tom.Reding (talkdgaf)  19:41, 19 November 2017 (UTC)

Wow, I have no idea how I did that. (More disturbing is that, 8.5 years later, I have hardly any idea what a Lissajous orbit is.) AldaronT/C 13:46, 21 November 2017 (UTC)
