Email forwarding[edit]

Hi Ale

Thanks for your notes on Email forwarding. This whole area confuses me not a little as a user (I have little experience of the internals), so it seems like we need to clarify things. Re filters, I think of clients like Thunderbird and Eudora, which as I understand it function on the client. The other cases relate to Unix-style ~/.forward files, which exist definitely in userspace and achieve forwarding -- but whether as the local user or as the local sendmail daemon -- I know not.

I find your English excellent: I haven't "amended" as much as edited for style -- a personal thing.

Hope this helps.

Domain name system[edit]

Hi. "Return-Path" is a header added by many delivery agents with the contents of the envelope from. Doesn't SPF operate on the envelope from, not on the nonstandard Return-Path? jhawkinson (talk) 14:51, 23 February 2008 (UTC)

Yes, you're quite right, 2821 (and 821) did clearly standardize Return-Path. I'm not sure why I thought it was simply an implementation convention and not a standard, but I was definitely wrong. Sorry about that. jhawkinson (talk) 18:40, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

Liouville number[edit]

Hi! First of all, sorry for my English. Now, why is G-delta? Let ; Q is an F-sigma set so Qc is G-delta and is G-delta as an intersection of two G-delta sets. By definition, Lc is a meagre set. Best, 4@ 08:14, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

Hi! By Meagre set#Definition we have that L is comeagre so Lc must be meagre. Am I wrong? It is possible, I might have confused definitions. If I am not wrong maybe this phrase from the article confuses you: "...and it follows that is a dense G-delta set, since its complement is a meagre set" - if so, it should be rephrased. Maybe "... and it follows its complement is a meagre set". Best, 4@ 11:04, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
Good idea! I think that your changes will improve the text. And how much of the topological idea of "bigness" - it is borrowed from Oxtoby's book quoted in the Reference section. Do as you please. Best, 4@ 12:42, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

Merging Reduction (philosophy) and Reductionism[edit]

Hi Ale -- Thanks for your helpful comments. See my response on the Reduction (philosophy) talk page Perhaps we can get a good discussion/resolution going. BTW, the notion that people and animals might be deterministic automatons is a persistent theme in the novels of Kurt Vonnegut.--Foobarnix (talk) 22:29, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Re: Stockade (disambiguation)[edit]

Re your message: Feel free to create the disambiguation page. The page that I deleted way back then was about a non-notable wrestler created under the wrong article naming convention. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 18:24, 10 June 2011 (UTC)

Hi, I'm afraid I've trimmed this disambiguation page quite radically - on the style guideline for disambiguation pages, it says "On a page called Title, do not create entries merely because Title is part of the name (see Wikipedia:Disambiguation#Partial title matches)." It's still ok to have the page as there are a couple of entries that refer to things called, simply, Stockade, but I've removed most of the other entries. --BelovedFreak 10:20, 22 June 2011 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Otto_Wiener_(physicist).jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Otto_Wiener_(physicist).jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please remove the tag.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media 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 taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images 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 our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Melesse (talk) 22:10, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Otto Wiener (physicist)[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Otto Wiener (physicist) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you.

status[edit]

As reviewing administrator, I of course removed he speedy tag; the ed. who placed it apparently either did not realize there was a p. in the deWP, or did not bother to check it, nor use some common sense either. But really, it would have been far better to translate over a little more of it. At the least, I sometimes just copy over the references, even without translation. It's the best protection against people making such errors. If you're not going to do more let me know, because ass you know he's a famous person, & I will do it.

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to OAuth may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "()"s. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page. Thanks, BracketBot (talk) 09:21, 9 May 2013 (UTC)

Email[edit]

I read the note you left on my talk page, I think they should be different page for free mail providers and a link to other pages, because you have Outlook, Gmail, Yahoo mail ect... and I appreciate your concern.

Disambiguation link notification for July 11[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Registration Data Access Protocol, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages CRISP and IANA (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.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
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. For the Election committee, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 16:30, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

Signpost exit poll[edit]

Dear Wikipedian, you recently voted in the ArbCom election. Your username, along with around 155 other usernames of your fellow Wikipedians, was randomly selected from the 2000+ Wikipedians who voted this year, with the help of one of the election-commissioners. If you are willing, could you please participate (at your option either on-wiki via userspace or off-wiki via email) in an exit poll, and answer some questions about how you decided amongst the ArbCom candidates?

  If you decide to participate in this exit poll, the statistical results will be published in the Signpost, an online newspaper with over 1000 Wikipedians among the readership. There are about twelve questions, which have alphanumerical answers; it should take you a few minutes to complete the exit poll questionnaire, and will help improve Wikipedia by giving future candidates information about what you think is important. This is only an unofficial survey, and will have no impact on your actual vote during this election, nor in any future election.

  All questions are individually optional, and this entire exit poll itself is also entirely optional, though if you choose not to participate, I would appreciate a brief reply indicating why you decided not to take part (see Question Zero). Thanks for being a Wikipedian

The questionnaire[edit]

Dear Wikipedian, please fill out these questions -- at your option via usertalk or via email, see Detailed Instructions at the end of the twelve questions -- by putting the appropriate answer in the blanks provided. If you decide not to answer a question (all questions are optional), please put the reason down: "undecided" / "private information" / "prefer not to answer" / "question is not well-posed" / "other: please specify". Although the Signpost cannot guarantee that complex answers can be processed for publication, it will help us improve future exit polls, if you give us comments about why you could not answer specific questions.
