Antidrugue: I hope you don't mind, I really like your user page so I borrowed some of your templates. Let me know if there are any issues. Would you know where I can find more templates? Sweetnsourbkr 18:18, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

No problem at all. By template, do you mean Userboxes ? Antidrugue 14:12, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

PNG size reduction?[edit]

I noticed you were able to reduce the filesize of this image by nearly 25% -- how did you do that? ptkfgs

I simply optimized the color palette of the image, using The Gimp. Using the 256 most appropriate colors (instead of the default 16 millions), you can save quite a lot of space. Antidrugue 14:16, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

It tries to recommend only articles that other Wikipedians have marked as needing work. Your contributions make Wikipedia better -- thanks for helping.

If you have feedback on how to make SuggestBot better, please tell me on SuggestBot's talk page. Thanks from ForteTuba, SuggestBot's caretaker.

Comparison of X Window System desktop environments[edit]

I noticed your major edit on the page Comparison_of_X_Window_System_desktop_environments. I had nearly written up the whole article without a spellchecker and I think you've done a fantastic job correcting a lot of errors. Thanks a lot for the same :) Did you use a spellchecker or a bot to do it? I also read your userpage and thought you might be interested in contributing more to the article. A whole article almost written solely by one person isn't a very good article- It tends to be biased :) Please leave your reply on my talk page -- Artagnon 17:38, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

Date format[edit]


I noticed that your summary to this edit was "Proper date format". In actual fact for wikilinked dates the date format is always given as the one chosen in one's user preferences; most of the world outside of North America uses date-first notation, however, so I generally use this for the benefit of users who aren't logged in. see WP:MOSDATE for details. Chris Cunningham 08:07, 4 July 2007 (UTC)

Oh, thank you for the explanation. I wasn't aware of that "user preferences" thing. I simply changed the date so it would be in accordance with the other OS articles. See you around. Antidrugue 00:08, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

Adrian Bunk, an article you created, has been nominated for deletion. We appreciate your contributions.

Fair use disputed for Image:Zenwalk-logo.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading Image:Zenwalk-logo.png. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our Criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 05:17, 16 September 2007 (UTC)

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.
