Moral Mondays[edit]

Thanks for taking an interest in the article! If you happen to be in the area, we could always use another appropriately licensed picture or two. Cheers, a13ean (talk) 18:34, 21 August 2013 (UTC)

The Other Place[edit]

Well, thanks to you as well! Really, you did the hard work, the plot is the hardest part of any play/musical for me, but also, I think, the most important! The only thing I might add now are some comments by White on the play, the link to a good interview is in his article. (Won't get to that for a few days, maybe this weekend.) Again, I appreciate that you started this nice article.Flami72 (talk) 11:59, 14 January 2014 (UTC)

CFD[edit]

Hi Foobarnix -- I'm recommending that we "listify" the category you created at Category:Winner of AAAS Prize for Behavioral Science Research. In general, award winner categories are generally not very sustainable or easily maintainable; and lists do a better job of capturing this information. Categories are best-reserved just for the most "defining" attributes of individuals; not treated as meta-tags. See WP:OCAT#Award for more info, or please feel free to drop me a line to talk. And, of course, please feel free to weigh in at the CFD discussion. --Lquilter (talk) 23:58, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

File:Macou stamp featuring geometric magic square.jpg[edit]

Dear Ronhjones - Thank you for intervening on the copyright question regarding the Macau stamp.

As I have written on the talk page for that file, I did indeed mistakenly upload the wrong file. I have now fixed it. User JohnBlackburne still objects, saying that a photocopy of a stamp is still covered by copyright. Is he right? You can see more discussion here.

The OTRS people have given the file a ticket number (ticket #2014110610024051). I thought that settled it.

I just hate to get involved in an email correspondence spanning three continents. OTH the people at the Macau Post Office have evidently told Lee Sallows that they are eager to cooperate. If I must, I must.--Foobarnix (talk) 18:08, 15 November 2014 (UTC)

The stamp has the copyright. It does not matter if the image is a scan or a photo, that just makes it a derivative of the stamp, and the copyright still exists. I've also seen the OTRS ticket (I have many heads...). Since Lee Sallows name is on the stamp and the images are on his web site, it's been passed. The question is who owns the copyright - Lee Sallows or Macau Post Office? If the latter, then we do really need an e-mail from them (ideally using the same form Commons:Email templates/Consent.

Given [1], might I inquire if there is any connection between your accounts? —Ruud 21:29, 8 December 2014 (UTC)

I'd be willing to continue this discussion offline, but you don't seem to have e-mail enabled. You can probably find my mail address from my user page if you are interested, otherwise I'll probably consider this as case closed. —Ruud 22:21, 8 December 2014 (UTC)

Related to the Univalent Foundations page[edit]

Hi, I am Vladimir Voevodsky. Could you please explain what is it that makes you to remove the material that I create for the articles on Homotopy Type Theory and Univalent Foundations? There is nothing in the text on the Univalent Foundations page that is incorrect or too technical (compare it for example with the text at the page for the Martin-Lof Type Theory). If you wish I can give you many more examples of pages whose subjects concern questions mathematical that are more technical than anything at the UF page.

There is also nothing wrong with a text on a page being written by someone who is a specialist or even a creator of the subject that the page is about. If you look at famous encyclopedias such as encyclopedia Britannica you will see that the articles are written by known specialists in the corresponding fields. The Wikipedia is open so that everybody can add, correct or improve an article but contributions from specialists are highly valuable and important for the Wikipedia to be a useful and informative source of knowledge.

Please stop warring with me and if you want to contribute then contribute by adding substantial, verifiable and informative content. --Vladimirias (talk) 04:21, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

As an editor concerned in this dispute, you are invited to participate in the mediation.

Because requests must be responded to by the Mediation Committee within seven days, please respond to the request by 1 March 2015.
