Overlinking[edit]

Hi, the policy I was referring to when I reverted your link in the Wind power article is wp:overlink where it says "Avoid linking the names of major geographic features and locations..." It's normally accepted that this means that towns and cities etc. should be linked but not the country itself. Editors often do add links countries but I always revert them as I spot them. If I'd read through the article again recently I would have removed the other two as well - but I hadn't :-) Richerman (talk) 23:00, 16 July 2012 (UTC)

Yes, I understood it that way :) Bakkedal (talk) 09:16, 17 July 2012 (UTC)

Good job...[edit]

... this, thanks. I made some slight tweaks. Cheers and keep up the good work! - DVdm (talk) 12:25, 7 November 2012 (UTC)

Debian article[edit]

Debian&diff=558259007&oldid=558224473
If you can discuss to justify your changes and please do check up on any citations. I had to revert your changes since there's technical inaccuracies. I've elaborated previously with others on its talkpage on very similar criteria which you're editing. I welcome participation but you're placing in inaccuracies. You can discuss it on the debian's talkpage, and see how the article can be better written in certain areas.

Which exactly "technical inaccuracies" did you find? All the information I added was from the Debian Project's "About" web-page [1]. It is what Debian says about itself.
One cannot be holier than the pope, can one? :)
Yes, and one more thing: where exactly does Debian call itself a "Linux distribution" -- could you give me a reference, please?
Bakkedal (talk) 08:35, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
There was an email, usertalkpage and Debian Talkpage for you to discuss your changes. You did not talk on any of these pages. I have been maintaining the Debian Page in it's history, and have no problem discussing changes.
Please do not make edits without citing.

The reason why it's not needed on the first sentence is convolution. Two other projects are mentioned: GNU and Linux project. It's a technical requirement not to include 'Debian project' prior, as the 'Debian project' is not built with acquaintance of GNU and Linux projects.

What is "not needed"? The reference to Debian project? I disagree. It is like demanding no reference to Microsoft in the Windows article. Bakkedal (talk) 09:21, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

The other reason is Debian does not depend on the 'Linux project' to be fully warranted as a Linux-only operating system. There is no special requirement to understand Debian by convolving the basics with 'Debian Project' as it's already self-referential on it's following introduction phrase.

Do you want to remove the reference to Linux kernel? Bakkedal (talk) 09:21, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

I have had similar discussions on the TalkPage, and I suggest to further address this on it's talkpage http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Debian

License tagging for File:Latex-example.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Latex-example.png. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information.

To add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia. For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 13:05, 25 October 2013 (UTC)

Please discuss man page on its talk page[edit]

Please discuss edits to man page on Talk:man page, not on my talk page; I will not respond to the comments on my talk page, as the discussion should be amongst all interested editors of man page, not just two of the editors. Guy Harris (talk) 21:20, 26 January 2015 (UTC)

Solar Impulse RTW: Distance[edit]

Thanks for adding the distances to the detailed flight table. However, where do they come from? Are they actual travel distances or point-to-point distances? Also, they don't look very precise (400 km. 1500 km etc). As much as I also would like to have distances in there, we must find a reliable source for consistent and verifiable information.Wild8oar (talk) 13:50, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

I guess self-measured distances are ok, if properly declared. There should be tools for calculating distances between airports. They should give better results. And could also be used as a reference. Wild8oar (talk) 15:30, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

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.
