Question about merging iptables and Netfilter articles[edit]

I saw your comment about merging iptables and netfilter. I agree that a merge is probably best, but I'm very new to Wikipedia. How do we go about proposing and getting approval for such a change? Does one even need approval for such a change? [[User:Franl|— franl (talk)]] 02:39, 29 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Renaming Netfilter article?[edit]

Hi. The netfilter/iptables project page ( refers to the project as the "netfilter/iptables project". And now, Wikipedia has links named "iptables" that redirect to the Netfilter article. What do you think of renaming the Netfilter article to one of the following:

  • Netfilter/iptables
  • Netfilter and iptables
  • Netfilter/iptables Project

or something similar? [[User:Franl|— franl (talk)]] 19:15, Dec 1, 2004 (UTC)


Hi, see the Functors talk page, thanks Trailcode 16:06, 30 January 2005

Hi Dmeranda,

I saw your edits to the oblate article. The wording of the section below that is still a bit awkward. It's written in the third person, but I think it flows better when it is written in the second person.

This is what I have in mind:

To get a feel for the type of equilibrium that is involved, you can can take place in a swivel chair, with weights in your hands, and someone brings the chair into rotation. If you pull the weights closer to yourself, their your rotation rate goes up (by conservation of angular momentum), which means that additional contraction requires a stronger force than before.

I shall put this proposal also on the oblate talk page. --Cleonis | Talk 21:07, 15 March 2006 (UTC)

UTF-16/UCS-2 article[edit]

I've presented a problem on the UTF-16/UCS-2 talk page, maybe you would like to participate. --Kokoro9 (talk) 12:49, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Thank you, thanks a lot![edit]

Thanks a lot, Dmeranda! If you see the history, you will see that I had made that edit using AWB which is semi-automated. I will make sure not to make such mistakes further. I award you the following barnstar for pointing out my mistake.

Disambiguation link notification for November 26[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited N-up, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Compact Oxford English Dictionary. 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.
