Thank You[edit]

Thanks for the cookies and the helpful links. sincerely Panpog1 (talk) 00:01, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

You're very welcome. From the edits I'm seeing in your sandboxes, it seems you're trying out some of the features of Wikipedia, especially syntax highlighting. For guidance on how this works, see MOS:CODE and http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:SyntaxHighlight_GeSHi. Once again, welcome to Wikipedia. DragonLord(talk/contribs) 00:14, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

I meant to give you this for the cookies and warm welcome but i couldent figure out how. Panpog1 (talk) 21:06, 28 April 2013 (UTC)
Thank you very much. Once you're ready to edit articles, feel free to be bold. We look forward to your contributions. DragonLord(talk/contribs) 21:10, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

Pilipinas Kong Mahal[edit]

I just did what Wikipedia required - I posted material with supporting evidence. You may look for the book I mentioned at the Library of the Mariano Marcos State University - College of Teacher Education in Laoag City if you think I only made up the lyrics.

I also have a screenshot of the book where I derived the material. You may see it at: http://sphotos-e.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-prn1/284795_4036481689410_1797852481_n.jpg

And besides, what I posted was the OFFICIAL English version - the ORIGINAL lyrics of the song before a Filipino version was made. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 121.1.38.228 (talk) 14:50, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

To clarify, I reverted the edit because you had removed categories and a template from the page. I probably made a mistake on this one. My apologies. DragonLordtalk/contribs 14:55, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

sorry[edit]

I just read in a book from eyewitness travel that his estate was 8,000 acres Top 10 Washington, D.C by Ron and Susan Burke — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.198.62.175 (talkcontribs) 03:51, 9 May 2013 (UTC)

Personal Sandbox[edit]

Thank you for the welcome. I do have a question. I created a personal sandbox, but I am not sure how to add that link to my user page, so I can access it easily. When I try, it tells me that page has not been created, but it has. Please advise. Thanks. --Faerygirl81 (talk) 20:08, 9 May 2013 (UTC)

Your personal sandbox is located at User:Faerygirl81/sandbox. Remember that page names are case sensitive, so User:Faerygirl81/sandbox is not the same as User:Faerygirl81/Sandbox (with capital S). DragonLordtalk/contribs 20:52, 9 May 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for the help. That must have been the problem. I will be more aware in the future. Faerygirl81 (talk) 17:50, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

Hi, DragonLord, I did not add the image to "amuse" the readers, I merely did it to inform them how serious the Share-Alike CC are. Lotje (talk) 05:18, 22 September 2013 (UTC)

I still don't think that edit was appropriate. An argument regarding CC BY-SA licensing is not relevant to code monkeys and is not a factual statement that belongs in mainspace. If licensing is an issue, or if you believe that users are not fully aware of the consequences of the CC BY-SA license, you should discuss it at the village pump instead.

The Tower (Tarot card)[edit]

You placed a POV tag on the article, but failed to explain your concern on the talk page. I am removing the tag. If you re-insert the tag with an explanation, I will leave it on, and we can discuss. Leaving a tag without an explanation is known as drive-by tagging and is discouraged. Robert McClenon (talk) 19:11, 18 October 2013 (UTC)

Monisha unni got killed in a car accident in 1992 Dec 5. Even she has a wiki webpage http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monisha_Unni

NIKSUN Page[edit]

DragonLord, I am new to Wikipedia, but I believe the tone of the article I have posted is neutral and informational in tone. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Fasa99 (talkcontribs) 15:04, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

Username[edit]

Hi,

Thank you for your message.

How can I change my username?

Best regards, Izabela — Preceding unsigned comment added by Systancia (talkcontribs) 16:01, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

To have your username changed, go to Wikipedia:Changing username. Alternatively, you may create a new account under a different username and abandon the old account. DragonLordtalk/contribs 16:56, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

edit[edit]

The source for the Hebrew alphabet is on Wikipedia. (SEE SOFIT) refers to the five Hebrew letters that are given a different form at the end of a word. See Hebrew alphabet/sofit 72.47.147.163 (talk) 15:44, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Welcome to Wikipedia. Unfortunately, your last edit didn't appear to be relevant to the article, and you did not give a citation for what you added. Wikipedia policy requires that added content be verifiable, not just correct. DragonLordtalk/contribs 15:50, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Camera lenses[edit]

If you're still interested in writing about lenses, I think we could make some progress along those lines. FWIW, I created stubs about the DA 55-300 and 560mm. Samsara (FA  FP) 10:09, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Great--thanks. Unfortunately, I'm going to be rather busy as I get started with graduate studies, but I'll see what I can do to contribute. DragonLordtalk/contribs 15:13, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
Well, good luck, for now, with your studies. I don't have a problem with slowly creating more stubs; however, getting them to a more respectable state might require concerted effort. Maybe you can just quickly tell me what LensType refers to - I saw it in Pentax DA 18-55mm lens but could find no further info about it. Thanks. Samsara (FA  FP) 17:37, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
LensType is an internal data value which identifies the specific lens model. It is read by the camera and stored in the Exif metadata so that software can identify what lens was used to capture the image. ExifTool can be used to read and interpret this data. DragonLordtalk/contribs 21:33, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
And do you crowdsource those values? I suppose I shouldn't be surprised if your lens collection included a number of different variants of the 18-55... Samsara (FA  FP) 22:18, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
Actually, I didn't add those values. This info was probably found on the Internet by another editor. You might want to look at the revision history. DragonLordtalk/contribs 02:30, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
My bad, should have checked. Thanks. Samsara (FA  FP) 04:36, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
Hey, hope things are going well - how is your wiki motivation level? Anything photography-related you'd like to attack? Samsara 22:46, 27 January 2015 (UTC)
Hey, nice to see you again. My interests have shifted towards Stack Exchange over the last several months and I'm no longer as active on Wikipedia these days. To be clear, I'm not retiring, but Wikipedia is on the backburner these days. Feel free to contribute, though, and thanks for stopping by. :) DragonLordtalk/contribs 02:37, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

HayatTV and Larin izbor[edit]

I can not remember that I did any changes in those articles. Nor I watch HayatTV nor like to watch Larin izbor TV novel.

IP addresses often change and may be assigned to different users or devices at different times. If you're on a network shared by several different users, it's also possible that another user on the network made the edits. It's likely the person who made the edit was assigned the same IP you currently have. If you expect to contribute to Wikipedia on a regular basis, consider creating an account as this will eliminate confusion caused by users sharing IP addresses.

26 Nosler[edit]

Hi DragonLord! New to this, definitely a challenge figuring out the Wiki language! I work for Nosler, and saw that you recently created and updated a page for our new cartridge, the 26 Nosler. Thank you for taking the time to do this! We'd like to collaborate on expanding the page to include more details about the cartridge. Is this something you'd be up for or do I just go ahead with making edits? Thanks for the help! Appreciate any suggestions or feedback! SharpShootress (talk) 17:06, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

Go ahead, but make sure you follow the advice for editors which may have a conflict of interest. I don't actually shoot any guns, I just wanted to fill a gap in Wikipedia's coverage of firearm cartridges. Thanks. DragonLordtalk/contribs 17:15, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

Australia (2008)[edit]

There should probably only be one of us restoring the vandalism on Australia (2008), I will defer to you from here on out. Enjoy, and thanks. Name Omitted (talk) 06:23, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

Understood—will be watching the page. Sorry some content was lost in the revert. I've posted edit war warnings on the offending IP's talk pages. DragonLordtalk/contribs 06:26, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:CSI seal.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:CSI seal.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 00:55, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

As a note to readers, the image was replaced with File:College of Staten Island seal.png. I've asked that it be deleted under CSD G7 as this image is no longer needed. DragonLordtalk/contribs 19:17, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

Brushless[edit]

Do you think there should be something about lens motors under Brushless_DC_electric_motor#Applications? Cheers! Samsara 18:46, 13 July 2017 (UTC)

I'm not 100% sure this is a notable enough application to list there. Pentax is the odd one out among camera lens manufacturers; most use ultrasonic motors or stepper motors for their higher-grade lenses. bwDracotalk/contribs 18:47, 17 July 2017 (UTC)
