User Bicyclist[edit]

Excellent work! I fixed your spelling in the page name. Thanks! Tedernst | talk 23:05, 24 December 2005 (UTC)

hi Eynar -- I think you created this template from my userbox -- but now I've found a picture I like better, so I've edited my user page (rather than editing the template). I suppose it's not right to edit the template, since others are using it? Do I create a new template? Or does it matter? It appears there are only a few of us cyclists, anyway! best, bikeable (talk) 06:31, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

Survey Invitation[edit]

Hi there, I am a research student from the National University of Singapore and I wish to invite you to do an online survey about Wikipedia. To compensate you for your time, I am offering a reward of USD$10, either to you or as a donation to the Wikimedia Foundation. For more information, please go to the research home page. Thank you. --WikiInquirer 02:52, 17 March 2007 (UTC)talk to me

Conventional superconductor[edit]

It's been a while since I was in the field of superconductivity, but I have never taken "conventional" to be synonymous with "Type-I", as the newly merged Type-I superconductor article implies. Do you have references that define "conventional" in this way? Also, this merger makes the article self-contradictory, as it lists Niobium as an example (of type-I), and then states (correctly) that it is type-II. If there was a discussion on this matter, I apologize for not chiming in sooner, but I'm fairly certain that Niobium is an example of a superconductor that is both conventional (meaning explained by BCS) and type-II. Spiel496 (talk) 21:14, 15 March 2008 (UTC)

Sorry you didn't see my earlier reply. I don't know whether to have the conversation on one person's Talk page, or split it between them. Anyway, I just wanted to write to explain why I reverted "Type-I" back to it's stub version from before the merger. I meant to do this last night. The problem was the table listed conventional superconductors, which included some type-II -- niobium wasn't the only one. Spiel496 (talk) 16:19, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

Notability of Heinz London[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Heinz London requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article appears to be about a real person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable. If this is the first page that you have created, then you should read the guide to writing your first article.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Daltxn (talk) 21:27, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Type-I, Type-II superconductor images[edit]

The images you created [1] are very nicely done, but there are some aspects of them that are misleading. In particular, I don't think the Cooper pairs should be thought of as localized objects like you've drawn. I would avoid Cooper pairs completely; after all, the Ginzburg-Landau theory explains the type-I, type-II distinction without using the concept of Cooper pairs. The coherence length doesn't need to refer to the size of Cooper pairs, but rather the length scale over which a material can change from normal to superconducting. My recommendation is to go with a picture that contrasts what the magnetic field lines look like in the type-I and type-II state. For example, this website [2] has some good illustrations. I'm sorry to be negative about your picture, because I appreciate the effort. Wikipedia would indeed benefit from more images, so I hope you continue your work.

Euro 2008[edit]

To be fair, I think I was a little hasty to remove the image, so I've restored it. However, if you have any others, feel free to add them to the category at Wikimedia Commons set aside for images of Euro 2008 and the final. – PeeJay 11:02, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

WikiProject Physics Poll[edit]

There is currently a poll about WikiProject Physics in general. Please take some time to answer it (or part of it), as it will help coordinate and guide the future efforts of the Project. Thank you. Headbomb {ταλκWP Physics: PotW} 18:18, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Capita per Medal maps[edit]

I created the maps by filling the countries per hand with gimp. The values were calculated with openoffice-calc. I think of creating a skript with gimp, but I haven't come to learn the gimp scripting basics yet. Toscho (talk) 19:21, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

Ireland meet up[edit]

Hi, you added your name on a list of editors interested in attending meet ups in Ireland.

You may be interested in attending a meet up of Irish Wikipedians planned for the 25th of September. More details here...

--RA (talk) 21:01, 3 September 2010 (UTC)


Hi, Eynar, I was perfectly aware of the document you've provided. However, such a document, though hosted in the EGP web site, is not a document endorsed by the Secretariat of EGP, but simply a document signed between Equo and ICV. As you know, the EGP Rule Book (available here) describes the procedure to become first a candidate and, two years later, a full member (see article 5). Therefore, the reference you need is as simple as an acknowledge by the EGP Secretariat of having received Equo application, as described by section 3 in article 5. Mind that it's an acknowledge issued by the Secretariat (not by another full member). Assuming that a document signed by a full member and another party is a proof of the existence of such an acknowledge is a clear syntesis (although sensible). Unfortunately, Wikipedia must not include information that seems "sensible" (such a document is possibly related to article 6.4 in the Rule Book, but we may only presume it, not stating it), but information that is referenced (remember our mantra "Verificability, not truth"). To sum up, once the Secretariat makes it public that the application has been received and that it has issued an acknowledge, it is possible to say that Equo is in process of becoming a candidate member. But only when it happens and is made public. Hope it's clearer now. Best regards --Ecemaml (talk) 23:35, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

Yes, I'm also aware of that, but mind that the table in the article talks about the members of the EGP; and Equo is not a member (if you go to annex B in the Rule Book, approved in November 2011, you can see the list of full and observer members; maybe Equo is a candidate member, but it's not actually known). A suggestion could be including a note linked from the Spain cells in the table including the information about the explicit support of the EGP to Equo in the last Spain's election, but again, Wikipedia cannot say that Equo is any kind of EGP member until the EGP says it, doesn't it? Best regards --Ecemaml (talk) 00:03, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

Yes, of course. Such information is valuable and can be referenced. What I strongly objected to was including Equo as a member of the EGP (or at least an applicant to membership). Therefore, I agree with your proposal. Best regards --Ecemaml (talk) 22:01, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

Love dart[edit]

Hello Eynar, I see you are the person who took two of the really great photos of love darts being used by Helix aspersa in 2008. I also see that you photographed the love dart after it had been used. Did you actually pull it out of the animal after it had been fired, or did the dart fall out by itself? I am asking because no-one seems to know what happens to the darts which have been fired and are embedded in an animal. Many thanks, Invertzoo (talk) 17:08, 4 March 2012 (UTC)

Excellent! A very interesting reply. I can't use that information in the article because it would be Original Research, but at least I now have some idea what happens! Thanks so much, Invertzoo (talk) 01:41, 5 March 2012 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of David Healy (Irish politician)[edit]

Disambiguation link notification for May 21[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Deus ex machina, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Quantum theory (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) 11:55, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

FA review?[edit]


I noticed that you are involved with the physics articles on Wikipedia, and I was wondering if you could help me out. Right now, I'm working to bring the article AdS/CFT correspondence to FA status. So far, people have had many good suggestions and many positive things to say about the article, but I'm having trouble getting people to support or oppose the nomination.

I was wondering if you'd be willing to take a look at it and tell us your thoughts at this page. Please note that you do not have to be an expert on the subject. The article has already been checked quite carefully by other reviewers, and at this point, I'm just looking for people who can check that it meets the FA criteria.

Please let me know if you're interested. Thanks. Polytope24 (talk) 15:46, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
