Asterisms[edit]

Please look for my reply to your message about Asterisms on my talk page. Thanks. --DannyZ 18:33, 28 December 2005 (UTC)

More about asterisms[edit]

Hi, looks like good work you're doing on this article. Just wanted to mention a couple of things - it's not the done thing to remove discussion from talk pages, but rather just to move a talk page to an archive once it gets too large, so I restored the text you removed from the talk page. Also, a very important thing for Wikipedia is verifiability, so it would be enormously helpful if you could cite the sources from which you're getting your information. A minor point is that section headings take normal capitalisation rather than having every word capitalised - see the manual of style.

With some references and some images, asterism would certainly count as a good article - you might consider listing it there in due course. Worldtraveller 19:36, 28 December 2005 (UTC)

Again - please don't remove discussion from talk pages. Thanks. Worldtraveller 18:17, 7 January 2006 (UTC)

Wellington[edit]

Hi there. What browser were you using that Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington didn't render correctly? Mackensen (talk) 23:54, 2 January 2006 (UTC)

  • I think that the problem is that I have a 13-inch screen, not 17-inch. The Info Box overlays the text. The first words that I can see are "an Anglo-Irish soldier."

B00P 00:47, 3 January 2006 (UTC)

    • That's pretty strange. It should just wrap, regardless of screen resolution (not that I have a 13" monitor to verify this...) Mackensen (talk) 01:07, 3 January 2006 (UTC)

Red Link[edit]

Your user page is like any other page. It stays red until you put something on it. You can put in a large amount of information or just something like "Hi, I'm B00P please leave messages on my talk page." CambridgeBayWeather (Talk) 12:40, 15 January 2006 (UTC)

No problem. CambridgeBayWeather (Talk) 00:56, 16 January 2006 (UTC)

Big Dipper 1[edit]

Ooops. I was checking out your comments and found that there were 25 articles linked to Big Dipper that were now shown as red. I had just finished fixing them to Big Dipper (asterism) when you moved them all back. I'll fix them back again. CambridgeBayWeather (Talk) 15:18, 25 January 2006 (UTC)

The thing that caused me the confusion was that I couldn't find an edit by SPUI. It's all fixed now and looks OK. Cheers. CambridgeBayWeather (Talk) 16:17, 25 January 2006 (UTC)

Geraldo Rivera Page[edit]

Someone vandalized the Geraldo Rivera page. I noticed because a number in the article simply didn't make sense. After I read it again more carefully I realized the section was vandalized. I have no idea how to revert and no time to figure it out now. If you get a chance, please revert it?

Done. B00P 14:33, 29 January 2006 (UTC)

Leo[edit]

Goto Template:Zodiac, Template:ConstellationsListedByPtolemy, Template:ConstellationsChangedByBayer, Template:ConstellationList. From there you will be able to edit them. I think that's what your asking right? CambridgeBayWeather (Talk) 14:42, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

I forgot to say that, if when you click on the "edit this page tab" and then scroll down to the bottom of the page it lists the templates that are on the page as links. CambridgeBayWeather (Talk) 04:01, 4 February 2006 (UTC)

Big Dipper 2[edit]

How's that? CambridgeBayWeather (Talk) 13:32, 4 February 2006 (UTC)

The Saints[edit]

G'day to you too ;), If you take a look at Category:Sporting songs, which contains the lyrics to club songs of all AFL teams, I found the St Kilda Football Club theme song was missing. There had been alot of talk in the media with Ross Wilson looking to update the song, so I was looking to document the previous version.

And you're right, I believe we should move this to a separate article (maybe not on the STKFC page), like all the other club songs (eg. The Pride of Brisbane Town). Cheers, Rogerthat Talk 01:30, 5 February 2006 (UTC)

Yep, no dramas mate, that looks to be fine. By the way, if you ever feel curious and want to watch a bit of Aussie rules (for free of course), take a look at AFLVideo ;) Cheers mate and keep up the good work, Rogerthat Talk 08:45, 5 February 2006 (UTC)

Re: Bill Haley[edit]

I don't think there's a need to be proportionate about it, however I redid the reference; see if that works. I do believe, however, that it is crucial to indicate that the Haley version carried the "Saint's Rock and Roll" title as it is on its own a notable recording, plus there are numerous references to this version that redirect to the Saints page. Cheers! 23skidoo 01:21, 16 February 2006 (UTC)

Deletes[edit]

Just confirm that Acrux should redirect to Alpha Crucis, Becrux should redirect to Beta Crucis and Gacrux should redirect to Gamma Crucis? So the articles will be at "name" Crucis, is that correct? CambridgeBayWeather (Talk) 21:53, 6 February 2006 (UTC)

We were both not thinking there. It was a straight move and you could have done it. I've taken care of the double redirects but you will need to fix the redirects [1], [2] and [3]. Cheers. CambridgeBayWeather (Talk) 05:05, 7 February 2006 (UTC)
OK what I thought at first was that when I did the move it would delete then move the page similar to this "13:55, 2 February 2006 CambridgeBayWeather deleted "BA Connect" (Deleted to make way for move.)" which is done automatically. But I had forgotten about Wikipedia:How to rename (move) a page#Moving redirect pages, see "Moving over a redirect". The redirect "Acrux", etc were created and never changed. CambridgeBayWeather (Talk) 17:20, 7 February 2006 (UTC)

Merge advice[edit]

Which two articles are you talking about? CambridgeBayWeather (Talk) 06:20, 15 February 2006 (UTC)

You know I'm not really sure. As the Proxima Centauri will become a redirect page it's unlikely that ayone will ever see the "intos". Another option is to go to Wikipedia:Translators available, Wikipedia:Wikipedians/Translators and Category:User languages and ask someone from there to notify that the merge has been done. That would take a bit of work though. CambridgeBayWeather (Talk) 21:59, 15 February 2006 (UTC)


7 Samurai[edit]

Are you sure about it was Koyzo? I remember the scene was that the samurai was sitting down on the floor angrily unanimated, and the only one that was "moving" was Heihachi who was stabbing the floor repeately and said "I really want to punish a farmer right now". I find it surprising that Koyzo who is supposed to be the "silent samurai" would be making a casual comment, (compared to other samurai Heihachi is the most outspoken samurai), of the four time i seen it, I got the feeling that it was Heichachi who made the comment.


Whatever you say.

I didn't remove it from the article, somebody else must have. All I ask is that you change the {{GFDL-presumed}} in that image to {{GFDL-self}} or something. --Rory096 22:58, 18 May 2006 (UTC)

Re: Pelican Nebula[edit]

Hi. I appreciate that if you don't call my edits vandalism. I changed the article into a redirect, because it had nothing but a link to the North America Nebula. As long as it has only a link, it's best to stay just a redirect. Having an article only because it shows up in a category is not a valid cause to keep it. Anyway, I created a small stub out of it, so there's no reason to change it a redirect page anymore.--Jyril 05:29, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

Asterism: References[edit]

This evening I noticed that Burnham's Celestial Handbook had been added as a reference to the Asterism article. That caught my eye because Burnham's is one of my own personal favorites. While looking at that, I happened to notice that the citation for A Field Guide to the Stars and Planets was for the 3rd edition. Thinking I was being helpful, I changed the ISBN to that of the newer 4th edition. As soon as I had saved that, it occurred to me that you had cited the 3rd edition because that's what you actually used. So I changed it back to the way you had it. Sorry for any confusion. --DannyZ 00:10, 6 May 2006 (UTC)




Yes, Burnham's story is very sad indeed. Good work on the Asterism article. --DannyZ 02:25, 9 May 2006 (UTC)

Images[edit]

I don't think that he is out to delete all the images, I think he is tagging them in compliance with the I6. The thing is that an incorrect use of "fair use" could leave Wikipedia open to problems. I've removed some fair use pictures (from user pages) myself.

I'm not sure who removed the image as it seems to have been there since the 4th February. Can you point out where it was removed. Thanks. CambridgeBayWeather (Talk) 23:34, 18 May 2006 (UTC)

I just opened the article for editing and there are four images listed in the article, 350px|thumb|right|Big Dipper map, thumb|250px|right|the Big Dipper, 200px|left and 260px|left, and all are visible to me. And as far as I can remember from yesterday they were all visible then. CambridgeBayWeather (Talk) 13:49, 20 May 2006 (UTC)

Talk:Earl Warren[edit]

The tag for the discussion page was put by a bot and a quick read through the article indicates he did have some relevence to Texas. The tags always go on the talk page rather than the article. I assume to help keep the articles looking clean.

I'm not sure why you cant edit the talk page. There's no protection on it and does not appear to have ever been any. Give it another try and let me know. CambridgeBayWeather (Talk) 10:30, 11 August 2006 (UTC)

WikiProject Baseball[edit]

Baseball Greetings fellow baseball fan! I notice you've made edits to baseball articles and thought you might want to become a WikiProject Baseball member. Among other things, we've recently started an article improvement drive just for baseball-related articles at WP:BBAID. Please take a look and vote on an article or add one of your own. Once an article has been agreed upon, feel free to stop by and lend a hand in getting it to featured article status. Hope you can participate! —Wknight94 (talk) 02:19, 8 September 2006 (UTC)

You appear to have invited me to participate. Do I sign in somewhere or just continue to edit baseball-related articles? B00P 21:01, 10 October 2006 (UTC)

No, you can just go to WP:BBAID if you're interested in collaborating on articles. —Wknight94 (talk) 21:49, 10 October 2006 (UTC)

Big Dipper 3[edit]

Regarding your post on my talk page, not sure where you stand. I can give you a good reason for every single one of my edits. --Voidvector 11:19, 9 November 2006 (UTC)

My changes:

  1. Added the title of the page "Big Dipper" (and its respective UK name) to the first sentence of the article. The original article didn't even mention "Big Dipper" in the intro.
    • Reason: Context of reference
  2. Grouped "Names and lore" based on regions of the world or source.
    • Reason: Easier to read
  3. Added some more information about Irish lore based on The Starry Plough (flag) page. (Add a picture representation of the flag.)
    • Reason: More information
  4. Changed the Native American myth to Abenaki myth, since Abenaki is only one tribe of Native American.
    • Reason: Correct representation
  5. Changed stuff about region using Chinese character, to refer specifically about the constellation in Chinese astrology.
    • Reason: More exact, and allow user to read up more on the Chinese constellation/astrology
  6. Remove all the interwiki link for Ursa Major
    • Reason: They are different constellations/asterisms.
  7. Move the constellation detail map (previously in intro section) to the "star" section
    • Reason: It is the only picture labeling the stars, when user read the list of stars in the Star section, they don't have to scroll up to the intro know which star is which.

--Voidvector 15:55, 9 November 2006 (UTC)

I am interesting to hear your point on #2, hopefully a short version. To elaborate on #2: As it stood, most of the lores are one-liner. Without any grouping, the section would have no structure or order that I can see. So I like to hear your position.

As for #6, most languages would have a term for Ursa Major because it's a IUA standard. Whether the language would have a term for "Big Dipper" would depend on its culture. However, given Ursa Major is a standard constellation, it's fairly easy to draw the distinction between local asterisms and Ursa Major in any language. As such, I am against interwiki linking to Ursa Major, as it would confuse bilinguals who are not informed on these topics. So I would remove it after your revert.

I have no problem with your plans or positions on the other points, so feel free to do the reverts you specified. --Voidvector 22:12, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

Please see my comments on the talk page of the list of nearest galaxies. If you feel really strongly about my edits, you can revert them to replace the 101th-107th galaxies in the list. I apologize if I offended you. George J. Bendo 19:36, 17 November 2006 (UTC)

Well, I am happy that you are not too upset with me, and I am happy that you are updating and improving the list. (These lists of astronomical stuff need to be tabulated better.) I will continue discussion on the Talk:List of nearest galaxies page. George J. Bendo 08:16, 18 November 2006 (UTC)

Solar evolution[edit]

Hi, as per stellar evolution Sun will become red giant in 5 billion years. However the luminosity of the Sun will increase by 10 percent over the next 1.1 billion years. Will civilization and land animal become extinct only when Sun becomes red giant or within 1.1 billion years? What will be the effect if luminosity of Sun increases by 10 percent?

Image[edit]

WHen you trimmed it as a bitmap did you convert it back to a jpg? Also you will need to contact Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission#When permission is confirmed.

Ursa Minor constellation map.png
OK, I just realised that with the information from the owners if I upload it I'm violating copyright. I deleted the image for now. What you need to do is send the info in to the above and then we coordinate to get the image in with the necessary tags. I will be at work every day this week and depending on your availabity I will be around from 07:00 UTC - 13:00 UTC. Cheers. CambridgeBayWeather Have a gorilla 14:11, 24 December 2008 (UTC)
You need to send the proof, I assume that you have the emails, to the address at Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission#When permission is confirmed and follow the other instuctions there. CambridgeBayWeather Have a gorilla 16:12, 24 December 2008 (UTC)
You're probably right they don't want their images on another website. So a fairuse might be better. You might want to check out and ask at Wikipedia:Non-free content.
There were two Ursa Minor files at Commons. Someone had deleted Ursa Minor constellation map leaving Ursa minor constellation map. It was the lack of the capital "M" that caused the problem. CambridgeBayWeather Have a gorilla 15:36, 31 December 2008 (UTC)

"Minor" edits[edit]

Hi BOOP, I noticed that a recent addition you make to the Science refdesk was flagged by you as "minor", when you had actually added content. Looking back, it appears that you've flagged dozens of non-minor edits as minor, making me think you might be unaware of the guidance on this flag (from first paragraph of WP:minor edit:

A check to the minor edit box signifies that only superficial differences exist between the current and previous version: type corrections, formatting and presentational changes, rearranging of text without modifying content, et cetera. A minor edit is a version that the editor believes requires no review and could never be the subject of a dispute.

I thought you might want to know - this flag shouldn't be used for any substantive change in content. --Scray (talk) 17:41, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for your quick reply, totally makes sense. I've hit "Save page" quite a few times, only to realize immediately (but still too late...) that I had left the edit summary or "minor" flag in the wrong state, with no way to edit the entry directly. Cheers. --Scray (talk) 19:36, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

RE: Lilith[edit]

No, I don't believe that your edits were warranted. Harpies shouldn't be mentioned in a section label "Mesopotamia mythology". In addition, you said "Lilith appears as a night demon, or succubus, …," which carries the implication that "succubus" is another word for night demon, while that isn't true. If you wanted to say that Lilith acted as both as a night demon and a succubus, you should've said "Lilith appears as a night demon or succubus …," which is the statement you've made previously without the commas. When you placed the commas into that statement, it grammatically said something that you didn't intentionally mean. --Michaeldsuarez (talk) 00:57, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

KJV supplied words[edit]

Hello.

It is my policy to avoid "revert wars" whenever possible. I do so by discussing the conflicting statements in order to resolve the issue.

You have made a change "correcting the correction" in the King James Version article.

My copy of the KJV uses two typefaces, Roman and Italic, as has every printing for at least the past 200 years. Directly translated words are printed in Roman. Due to the fact that Hebrew and Greek to not follow English syntactical rules, in was necesssary to supply other words either to conform to English grammar or to avoid gross ambiguities. These words are printed in Italics.

When I came upon the article, it had the two typefaces interchanged, with the Italics for the straight translation, and the Roman for the supplied words. I corrected this.

Now you have come along and replaced it with a claim that the two typefaces are Blackletter and Roman. This is incorrect, as a glance at a copy of the KJV will demonstrate.

And now I ask myself how would someone who appears to know his business come to make such a mistake. Only one solution comes to mind. It is possible - and mind you this is merely a guess on my part - that you may be aware of a fact not in my possession, to wit, the orginal edition of the KJV used a Blackletter/Roman combination which has since been universally replaced with the Roman/Italic system.

If such is the case, then you are obligated to clarify matters by inserting the information that the Blackletter/Roman combo has been superceded by the Roman/Italic. If, however, such is not the case, then your revision is merely an error and you should revert it.

That ball is in your court. B00P (talk) 06:12, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

my apoligies if I appeared to act without due courtesy, I had thought you had simply got confused in editing the original error, and so changed it to what I had assumed you intended to say.
The section refers to the printing of the original 1611 edition; and in that edition the typeface is Blackletter, and the supplied words are Roman. Readers who come to the article without prior knowledge would therefore be confused if it were stated that the supplied words were in Italics, as when they clicked on the image of an original page alongside the para in question, they would have seen that was clearly a misstatement.
The choice of Blackletter was both eccelsiastical (Roman typeface was used both by the Douay/Rheims and Geneva Bibles); and commercial (Blackletter editions sold better). But from the Restorastion onwards, Roman type became more and more the standard, and I think is universal from the beginning of the 18th century.
All this was once set out at length in the article, but it became too long and was drastically edited. I have however inserted a comment in the form you suggested. I hope it resolves your query.
All the best, Tom TomHennell (talk) 23:55, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

Logical quotation[edit]

Hi, just a quick note. Wikipedia uses logical quotation (see WP:LQ), so I've reverted the change at A Wizard of Earthsea. Thanks :) -- Quiddity (talk) 19:29, 29 October 2009 (UTC)

Fascinating. I had no idea that, as a matter of policy, Wikipedia requires that editors mispunctuate their contributions. Clearly, this is another step towards the dumbed-down, anything-goes future we are headed for. Correct usage is correct usage, and calling some erroneous alternative "logical" doesn't make it correct. "Logically," we should all be spelling night n-i-t-e.
However, I appreciate the "heads-up" from you, and may now stop developing the bot that I was planning to create to deal with this issue. B00P (talk) 09:09, 30 October 2009 (UTC)
It's not quite that bad! See Quotation mark#Punctuation which calls them British style (or logical quotation or grammatical rule) vs. American style (or typesetters' quotation). It's almost as subjective as WP:ENGVAR. Debatable! (and has been. oh god has it ever been).

Constellations Task Force activity[edit]

Hello there! As part of an effort to determine how many active editors are present in the astronomy-related WikiProjects, changes have been made to the list of members of the Constellations taskforce of WikiProject Astronomy. If you still consider yourself to be an active editor in this task force, it would be appreciated if you would please edit the list so that your name is moved to the 'active users' section - thus a clearer idea of the number of active editors can be determined. Many thanks in advance!
