Hello Diggers2004, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date. If you have any questions, check out Wikipedia:Where to ask a question or ask me on my talk page. Again, welcome! 

Your efforts at making gradient more accessible are appreciated, but please note that the sentence "One can obtain the grade by taking the dot product of the vector gradient" which you put in the first paragraph, now does not make so much sense because the concent of "vector gradient" has not yet been defined. :) So I suggest you work more on that article. We can also discuss fine issues about the article organization at talk:gradient. Cheers, Oleg Alexandrov (talk) 05:36, 18 December 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for experimenting with Wikipedia. Your test worked, and has been reverted or removed. Please use the sandbox for any other tests you want to do. Take a look at the welcome page if you would like to learn more about contributing to our encyclopedia. Thanks. Lectonar 12:36, 22 December 2005 (UTC)

Hi Diggers2004. I'm not sure I agree with Lectonar's reversion of your edits to elementary algebra. I have asked him/her to explain his/her reasons. However, I'd like to suggest that the edit you made was not minor, and so you shouldn't have selected the "This is a minor edit" box. That can really tick people off around here. (Check your preferences too to see if it's on auto-pilot.) Anyway, don't let a few reversions bother you... welcome to Wikipedia! Dmharvey 14:03, 22 December 2005 (UTC)
Thanks for the positive feedback & advice re elementary algebra. Is this the way I leave a message specifically for you ? I am just learning but interested in helping make wiki into encyclopedia galactica ! I teach secondary school so I thought I would start with trying to make the maths articles start with common usage and basic concept summary before getting into deep detail.
Was assuming that anything less than 5% (?) change was minor.
Will try to start reading some wiki policy docs sometime.
PS is this automatically signed ? I wonder NO !! Have to insert code manually ? --Diggers2004 00:37, 23 December 2005 (UTC)
(reply moved back from Dmharvey's talk page)
The convention is to reply to comments in the place they were originally posted, unless there's a really good reason not to. Makes it easier to follow conversations. I am a big fan of making articles more accessible. See Wikipedia:Make technical articles accessible. Minor change does not refer to the quantity or proportion of text; rather it refers to its significance. For example, spelling corrections are almost always minor changes, or adding wikilinks. Rearranging text generally is not. A good place to start learning is Wikipedia:Policy_trifecta. Dmharvey 00:44, 23 December 2005 (UTC)

Thanks again. Will keep on trying... --Diggers2004 00:47, 23 December 2005 (UTC)

Joyce Nicholson[edit]

Hi Diggers2004, not sure what you're after here. Are you after pointers on how to get this rated (FA/A/GA/B/Start/Stub) and {{WP:peer review|peer reviewed ? I'm happy to helpout with some editing and rating if needed. Peer review is (as I'm finding) a long process sometimes as there are far more articles for review than reviewers. I'll have a look through the article tonight and see where I can help - Peripitus (Talk) 08:55, 3 April 2007 (UTC)

Q: Are you after pointers on how to get this rated (FA/A/GA/B/Start/Stub) Ans: Yes.

Thanks fo your cleanup and style improvements. Have made a couple of minor format edits. Have included a copy of the book "A Life of Books" as the author has allowed me to publish it with unlimited full text access on Google books. She would also be happy to place it in Wikipedia Commons (is that what the commons is for ? o just images and multimedia ?) PS: any idea why the picture of her that I uploaded has gone ? Thanks from a WikiNewbie Diggers2004 03:47, 4 April 2007 (UTC)


The problem is that Wikipedia can only accept images licensed as public domain or GFDL, both of which allow almost any use, including commercial. More restricted licences such as Wikipedia/non-profit/educational only are not accepted. When you upload and have to select a licence, you must choose either public domain or GFDL.

Since it is not your image, you must then make it very clear that you have full permission for use. State the fact, if you have an email or other documentation to confirm permission, copy in the text of that, and say that permission has been given for the Google book upload. You must also specify the source precisely with a url if it's off the web or a book page number. Hope this helps, let me know if any future problems, jimfbleak 05:12, 6 April 2007 (UTC)

I agree with the lack of clarity - some of the licensing alternatives, as you are aware, look plausible but take the image automatically to the list of speedy deletion. jimfbleak 05:53, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:A Life of Books.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:A Life of Books.jpg. 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 11:18, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

Meta:Global sysops/Vote[edit]

Hi, I presume you're the same person who voted Meta:Global sysops/Vote at [1] right? If so, I noticed that your vote is in the comments section. This may mean it won't be counted. If you really intend to vote, I suggest you remove your vote from the comment section and move it to the Yes section Nil Einne (talk) 07:51, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Bill Mountford[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Bill Mountford has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Fail to see how he meets the notability guidelines

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Mattlore (talk) 06:42, 30 November 2010 (UTC)

Charles Barber[edit]

No worries! You seem to be doing a pretty good job. Best wishes, Pdfpdf (talk) 12:35, 19 July 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for June 17[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Eliza Forlonge, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Britain (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 11:19, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

Thanks. Great surveillance ! Changed both links to Great Britain. Diggers2004 (talk) 02:26, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

License tagging for File:Agra-fort-plan-murray-1901.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Agra-fort-plan-murray-1901.jpg. 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) 12:06, 21 September 2013 (UTC)
