Division algorithm[edit]

I noticed you undid my edits on the article Division algorithm for improper publishing. I was hoping you could help me know how I should publish appropriately. Thanks. Warnerjon12 (talk) 16:58, 13 June 2017 (UTC)

Hello Warnerjon12. Regarding your contribution here, please see WP:No original research. Wikipedia is not intended to be a venue for first publication of novel ideas. From a practical standpoint, your method is still far from proving its usefulness. When you claim cubic convergence, you do no analysis of how the algorithm will behave on typical floating-point hardware. Also, any new method would have to be implemented in code and the code would have to be tested. EdJohnston (talk) 17:13, 13 June 2017 (UTC)

Okay, great. Warnerjon12 (talk) 22:03, 13 June 2017 (UTC)

Edits by[edit]

This IP (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log) has/have (I don't know the number of users) made a number of edits to math articles. Some have been made to other articles, but the anon has returned to math articles. A number of them have been undone for various reasons. The IP adds unsourced, opinion, and/or rants to articles such as Yahoo! GeoCites and Algerian Arabic. I am unqualified to validate edits to math articles. Would you please take a look? Thanks Jim1138 (talk) 07:27, 15 June 2017 (UTC)

To Jim1138: I have looked to their math edits. They are not I'm my main area of competence, but the few ones that have not been reverted seem not really problematic. Can you be more specific on doubtful edits that have not been reverted? D.Lazard (talk) 09:03, 15 June 2017 (UTC)
Given the anon's problematic edits on many non-math articles, I was rather concerned with the math-related articles. I was worried something had fallen through the gaps. Thank you for checking. Cheers Jim1138 (talk) 10:53, 15 June 2017 (UTC)

Pls explain why you reverted my edit. I thought bullet format highlights his various roles better.--K81944 (talk) 17:34, 22 June 2017 (UTC)

To K81944: I have reverted your edit because of the manual of style (MOS:LISTBULLET), which says "Do not use lists if a passage is read easily as plain paragraphs." D.Lazard (talk) 19:12, 22 June 2017 (UTC)
OK, thanx for enlightening.. --K81944 (talk) 21:02, 22 June 2017 (UTC)
