{{helpme}} Hello, what is the policy on editing discussions? If a page has lots of discussions, a consensus was built and then implemented, and then years went by, what happens? Is it acceptable for another person to delete that discussion topic? Or how does archiving work?

If you ask a stupid question and are replied to, can you retract your question and their answer?

If you make a comment, are not answered and would like to retract, can you do so?

We don't delete stuff; we archive it. How to do it is explained in Help:Archiving a talk page.
Whilst we have no rules on Wikipedia, it is not considered the 'done thing' to change anothers comments, or even to delete your own comments. Fixing a typo is OK, but beyond that, it is better to strike out your comment, and sign the strikeout, then put the corrected version.
For more on that, see Wikipedia:Etiquette and WP:TALKPAGE.
I hope that this answers; for more help, you can either;
Best wishes,  Chzz  ►  16:04, 4 June 2009 (UTC)

statistical induction and deduction[edit]

Hello Fulldescent

You might be interested in the following article

It was originally written for wikipedia, but deleted because it contains original research, which wikipedia does not support. See WP:NOR.

Optical Carrier[edit]

Just noticed your old note on my talk page; sorry I don't look there often. Thanks for removing OC-96, but someone has put it back. I removed it again, and will try to pay attention to it. Jpgs (talk) 16:49, 27 February 2010 (UTC)

Turing machine Excel file[edit]

I'm typing this on my netbook in a restaurant far from home, not on the laptop that has the file -- that laptop is about 2000 miles from here. I am assuming that I can find the pertainent file on the laptop in question. But when I do I'll get it to you (but this could be in 1-2 weeks). Bill Wvbailey (talk) 23:39, 26 March 2010 (UTC)

File copyright problem with File:Charlie Munger Signature.svg[edit]


Thank you for uploading File:Charlie Munger Signature.svg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the file. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their license and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. Image Screening Bot (talk) 16:37, 24 June 2010 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Reflex-cfp-100ge.jpg[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:Reflex-cfp-100ge.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 orphaned, meaning that it is 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).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of "file" pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Skier Dude (talk 04:02, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

Please sign your contributions to talk pages[edit]

Information.svg Hello. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, such as on Simpson's paradox, you must sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. You may also click on the signature button Insert-signature.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your username or IP address and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you. Qwfp (talk) 08:04, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:Word mac 2008 mac os x leopard.png[edit]


Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Word mac 2008 mac os x leopard.png. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 15:02, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for June 29[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Embrace, extend and extinguish, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page NDA (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.
