Category deletion[edit]

I had to decline your request to speedy delete Category:Members of the National Academy of Engineering because it appears that the category previously was populated but then was emptied manually by another user without following the discussion process at WP:CFD, and the speedy deletion criteria specifically prohibit deleting a category under these circumstances. Accordingly, I have started a discussion at Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Log/2009 October 29#Category:Members of the National Academy of Engineering, and you are welcome to participate. --R'n'B (call me Russ) 13:03, 29 October 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for the notice. I tagged it because I assumed it was unused/deprecated following some discussion or other. I didn't know that the speedy deletion criteria had that restriction. I'll be careful of that in future. • Anakin (talk) 13:07, 29 October 2009 (UTC)

File talk:Video contact angle.gif[edit]

" This image (as viewed 22 Oct 2009) is identical to that found in the publication: "Controlled Probe Surface Chemistry for Nanoscale Contact Deformation", by Catherine A Tweedie, Georgios Constantinides, Gregory S Blackman, and Krystyn J Van Vliet, Mater. Res. Soc. Symp. Proc. Vol. 1021, 2007, page 1021-HH06-01 -- figure 2 (inset). but the author list of that publication does not match the user (User:Deglr6328) who uploaded the image and claimed it was taken by him/her. The Materials Research Society owns the copyright of the article and hence the image, and hence this image is no longer (even if it was at one point) GPL.

Please clarify?

Hmmm. If they published it in 2007 and this was uploaded in 2005 then they are violating the copyright of User:Deglr6328 by not crediting him according to the GFDL, unless of course, there's some evidence it was published by the MRS before that. • Anakin (talk) 08:17, 25 October 2009 (UTC)
I assure you that I created that image on a VCA device and I could easily do another one to prove it. I am afraid Tweedie et. al. and Materials Research Society are in obvious violation of the GFDL. I don't have access to the paper but I would love to know whether the image is merely being used illustratively (in which case, I could really care less about it) or if it is actually being passed off as their own research, in which case I would suggest the validity of Ms. Tweedie's research and her degree may be called into question. --Deglr6328 (talk) 08:07, 6 November 2009 (UTC)

Other Wikipedia use of your clock[edit]

Hi, I am based on Simple English Wikipedia and I would like to use your great clock. How can I use it from a different Wikipedia? Thanks. Liverpoolfan567 (talk) 10:28, 7 November 2009 (UTC)

Please notify me on my talk page when you reply. Thanks. Liverpoolfan567 (talk) 12:10, 7 November 2009 (UTC)
Yes please. I would like to use your blue LED clock. Thanks very much. Please import it onto my talk page, then I'll move it where I would like it. Liverpoolfan567 (talk) 16:25, 7 November 2009 (UTC)
The template. Thanks. Liverpoolfan567 (talk) 16:33, 7 November 2009 (UTC)

Tomeraider Freeware[edit]

Referring to your reverting at the Tomeraider Wikipedia page: Mat Ripley released the Code Generator himself. Maybe saying Tomeraider is freeware now is a somewhat unlucky wording but shouldn't it be noted at the Tomeraider entry? An excerpt from the mail conversation with him: "Well the issue is the devlopement. We cant afford to do the work that would make them freeware. but please give all of that code gen stuff to the world:)" Please reply. I'll look back here. Cheers —Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.235.151.159 (talk) 16:09, 11 November 2009 (UTC)

I don't know who Mat is, but releasing of a keygen for the software is in direct conflict with the TomeRaider website, which is selling it for £15.00. That would seem to violate WP:ELNEVER, hence why I removed it. Is there something I've misunderstood? What connection is Mat Ripley to Yadabyte? • Anakin (talk) 18:11, 11 November 2009 (UTC)

Reply 2: Hello. I understand your point of view! Mat Ripley is according to my knowledge the lead developer of Yadabyte. Or the CEO according to http://www.mobilitysite.com/boards/introductions/265705-hi-i-m-mat-ripley-yadabyte-makers-tomeraider.html . Mat released the Code generator at yadabytes site. You can download it at testing.yadabyte.com (as I noticed on my Page http://jackpot-music.de/boni/yadabyte.html ). So I guess it wouldn't violate [[WP:ELNEVER]. Cheers!

I'm thoroughly unconvinced. While it's strange that the code generator is available for download from a Yadabyte domain, it is not publicly linked from their main sites, which treat the product as commercial only. If it was now freeware why wouldn't they just say so? Any code generator link must not be added unless this is properly explained, or it may expose the Wikimedia Foundation to legal trouble. • Anakin (talk) 06:48, 13 November 2009 (UTC)

That makes sense. Thanks for clarification. You're right, of course. The reason why it's still treated as commercial product is explained by "We cant afford to do the work that would make them freeware", too, I guess. I agree with you, changing this wiki article is not necessary in this case. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.235.161.140 (talk) 19:37, 15 November 2009 (UTC)

Secure server script[edit]

Hi Anakin101. I have just started writing the page Wikipedia:Secure server, since there is no documentation anywhere about the secure server. It's just a rough draft at the moment, but I and others will add more over time.

I just tested your user script User:Anakin101/alwayssecurewikipedia.js, and it worked marvellously! So I have a number of questions about it:

Is it okay if others start to use your script? It would mean a great service to a lot of users.

Is it okay if I add a recommendation of it on the Wikipedia:Secure server page?

I don't know much javascript, compared to you I am just a newbie javascript coder. (Although I have been programing computers since 1982.) So I would not like to copy your script, since I wouldn't be able to maintain it. So I would like that you keep on maintaining it. That is, that the "public" version of the script stays in your care, on its subpage in your user space.

But your user script currently lacks documentation. It would be nice if we added a documentation page to it, since without documentation most people won't dare to use it and won't know how to install it. Here's how I documented one of my scripts: User:Davidgothberg/clock. As you can see the documentation page has the same pagename as the script, apart from that it lacks the ending ".js". Over at Wikipedia:WikiProject User scripts we have discussed and tested different methods to document scripts, and that is the best method we could come up with. If you don't want to write the documentation yourself, then I can start it out for you. That would mean that I would make and edit the page User:Anakin101/alwayssecurewikipedia, and I would add a comment at the top of your script pointing to the documentation page.

All this is of course just questions and suggestions. It is your script, so you decide.

If/when you have answered feel free to poke me on my talk page.

--David Göthberg (talk) 12:11, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

I'm very sorry that it's taken me nearly a year to return to Wikipedia and reply to you. I have no excuse. Given the note by TheDJ below, it looks like the script is out of my hands, so no further action is necessary. • Anakin 15:47, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

always secure Wikipedia[edit]

Just to let you know. MediaWiki:Common.js now includes MediaWiki:Common.js/secure.js automatically when people are using English Wikipedia of the secure server. —TheDJ (talkcontribs) 20:47, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

Hello. I am normally a contributor on the English Wikinews. I spotted your digital clock and now I would like to use it, if possible. The problem is that I would like it to be used on my Wikinews user page. The template doesn't work on Wikinews at the moment, so can you please help me getting your digital clock onto my Wikinews user page? --Rayboy8 (talk) 21:04, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

By the way, would it be possible to make your digital clock automatically set itself for Daylight Savings Time? I could, of course, set it myself, but it would be easier if there were an automatic function. TheGRANDRans ✫Speak to Me!✫ 00:39, 18 March 2010 (UTC)

Not possible I'm afraid. The rules for DST are vastly too complicated and subject to all sorts of inter-/national oddities. • Anakin 15:53, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of File:Wikipedia-logo-fix-test.png[edit]

The file File:Wikipedia-logo-fix-test.png has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Old orphaned esoteric file.
