Hello and welcome to Wikipedia!

Here are some tips to help you get started:

Good luck!

P.S. One last helpful hint. To sign your posts like I did above (on talk pages, for example) use the '~' symbol. To insert just your name, type ~~~ (3 tildes), or, to insert your name and timestamp, use ~~~~ (4 tildes).

Thanks for your comment[edit]

Hi ELApro,

Thanks for your interest in my physics page. The reason I haven't linked to it from my homepage yet is because it's a work in progress, but thanks for the suggestion and the link.

I'm afraid I don't know any other pages like it. I made that one from scratch and if you haven't found anything more useful from google then I won't be able to help you.

Thanks again,

The "physics page" referred to above is Mnemonic Devices Physics and is linked from my web site at ELApro.net : ELA PHYSICS PORTAL: Equation Mnemonics

Confusing addition to lede of Tycho Brahe[edit]

In edit, you added the following intro to the article:

In his De nova stella of 1573, he destroyed the celestial spheres with precision measurements that showed the celestial heavens were not immutable as previously assumed by Aristotle and Ptolemy, but by the lack of parallax, new stars (now known as novae or supernovae), in particular that of 1572, were not "atmospheric" tail-less comets but occurred above the atmosphere and moon. Using similar measurements he showed that comets were also not atmospheric phenomenon, as previously thought, and must pass through the celestial spheres.

The first sentence of that paragraph is a run on that I can't parse. What were you trying to say? Also, you linked the phrase "celestial spheres" to Celestial Sphere, but it looks like the article on Celestial Spheres (plural) is what he was debunking. Can you confirm? —ShadowRanger (talk|stalk) 16:05, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

This was corrected. Information now reads as follows in the article introduction:

In his De nova stella (On the new star) of 1573, he refuted the Aristotelian belief in an unchanging celestial realm. His precise measurements indicated that "new stars," (stellae novae, now known as supernovae) in particular that of 1572, lacked the parallax expected in sub-lunar phenomena, and were therefore not "atmospheric" tailless comets as previously believed, but were above the atmosphere and moon. Using similar measurements he showed that comets were also not atmospheric phenomena, as previously thought, and must pass through the supposedly "immutable" celestial spheres.

Tolstoy[edit]

Thank you for your message. I removed the Wikiquote link from Tolstoy as Wikiquote is not considered an 'external link'. I have re-added it under 'further reading'. It would be good to add the chapter and any other edition info if you have it. Best wishes Span (talk) 22:59, 27 October 2012 (UTC)

Hi, friend![edit]

Thanks for your work on historical New Mexico corporations, such as Montezuma Copper Mining Company Of Santa Fé, New Mexico. Your work is appreciated. I was wondering if I could persuade you to start editing such pieces in a more conventional style, starting with a short lead that defines the subject, summarizes the content, and briefly explains why the subject was important. This is the stuff that pops up on cell phones, it's not an obscure and pointless aspect of a Wikipedia piece. Then break that lead with a header that says some thing like BIOGRAPHY or HISTORY or what have you and begin the piece from the beginning there, using subheadings as applicable. Make it easy for people to read, to find what they need to find. Very lengthy extracts from corporate documents strike me as a bit burdensome in that way, they tend to clog your narrative.

Anyway, I hope you don't mind terribly that I am chiming in about this. Thanks again for your work. —Tim Davenport, Corvallis, OR /// Carrite (talk) 15:11, 26 May 2015 (UTC)
