Your comment on the 2006 Israel Lebanon talk page[edit]

Re: Seymour Hersh - the last comment at the bottom of that section was at 2am on the 16th (GMT), and it was archived at 1am on the 19th. After rechecking, though, I missed tewfik's comment in the middle. (I just scan the bottom of the sections) Sorry. Iorek85 23:59, 19 August 2006 (UTC)

Bristol elections[edit]

Thanks for doing the extra bits. I'm not too bothered about the results 1995-2006 as they are already online. I want to get stuff online that's not generally available. Do you think I should do Bristol results from the 1970s or do some Avon county results? Andrew

multiple wikilinking[edit]


I've been looking at Wikipedia:Only make links that are relevant to the context & the general advice is not to overlink. If you think I've been overzealous on any of the pages let me know & I'll revert my edits. — Rod talk 22:05, 24 October 2006 (UTC)

Re: maps, etc[edit]

See Wikipedia:WikiProject Bristol. Thanks, Joe D (t) 18:23, 15 February 2007 (UTC)

Bristol infoboxes[edit]

Hi, I agree the sort of infobox used for Redland, Redland is nice but I don't have the knowledge or skills (or software) to do the local maps (within Bristol & England). They are also non standard boxes which may mean they may not be read by other systems eg Google earth.— Rod talk 12:04, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

On the blanking of user talk pages[edit]

I see that you are reverting the deletion of material on other people's user talk pages. But users are allowed to blank their own talk page, as explained here. -- Hoary 09:34, 9 August 2007 (UTC)

Response on your talk page. Fig 11:15, 9 August 2007 (UTC)

Romanesque architecture[edit]

Instead of simply reverting my edits in an argumentative way, please describe the political state of England at the time that Romanesque architecture was introduced. England was relatively more unified than, say, Italy. Since the political situation appears to be more your subject than mine, please construct and insert an appropriate sentence.

Libertarianism in the United Kingdom[edit]

You may perhaps remember the case of "Thistle" at Libertarianism in the United Kingdom. I seem to be getting into an edit war with who seems determined to reinsert Thistle, and who has also been vandalising other pages. Any thoughts/help appreciated. Jonathan A Jones (talk) 20:05, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

Many thanks - looks like there was a real flurry of activity last night. Jonathan A Jones (talk) 06:39, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

I'm afraid he's back with an account. Jonathan A Jones (talk) 13:33, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

m4 type carbine[edit]

Hi Fig. How do you know the weapon used in the Sandy Hook shooting was an M4 type carbine? I couldn't find any source for this. That's why I no longer think it should be in the article. See the talk page; unless evidence is presented, it's a losing battle to keep it in. Mlm42 (talk) 20:50, 6 January 2013 (UTC)

I agree very much with your recent comment on the Circumcision talk page about how it's massively POV.

I'm very frustrated about this because it's so blindingly obvious. I've made several comments on the talk page myself but it is incredibly obvious that the editors have taken over that article and made it entirely pro-circumcision.

I'm new to Wikipedia but surely there is something we can do to resolve this?

Hi, I am a new editor here. I would like to help create a more neutral position in articles relating to the Infants' and Children's Rights Movement, specifically in regards to the International Campaign for Genital Integrity. — Preceding unsigned comment added by DavidHGrateful (talkcontribs) 03:04, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Talk:Gravitational wave observation#Detection of event by other methods[edit]

Hi, to answer your question that may or may not be appropriate for the talk page: you wouldn't expect EM or neutrinos from a purely gravitational event, unless there is matter floating around that was affected by the merger. In that case, there could be delays. For light, refractive index, as you already referred to, though it wouldn't be much given the extremely low densities of intergalactic and even interstellar gas (less than a year I'd guess). For neutrinos, if they have mass, they'd be slower than the speed of light in vacuum. But not from curvature of space: that affects everything. Gap9551 (talk) 17:16, 13 February 2016 (UTC)
