Now you're gonna kill me :-) Where did I read that you translate — presumably Portuguese, which means you can do Spanish and Italian, sorta ? Someone has questioned the translation of the official name of the act referred to colloquially as The Carmona Decree, and you can probably do MUCH better than I did. Time for one more? I try to stay away from Chavez articles (too painful, especially today), but I saw a question was raised on the talk page, and I'm no translator. SandyGeorgia (Talk) 20:29, 28 May 2007 (UTC)

Thanks, Fv — another set of eyes helps, and those terms should be fairly similar. I really appreciate it, although it's a hard news day in our house. SandyGeorgia (Talk) 02:22, 29 May 2007 (UTC)
I fended on my own in Sao Paulo for a month, and in Portugal for two weeks; if my Spanish works in Portuguese, your Portuguese will work in Spanish ! The world is no farther away than those we hold in our hearts and can no longer travel to visit. SandyGeorgia (Talk) 02:45, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

Wikipedia is a big place

Yeah, I've done mostly stuff in various biology bits and pieces and tended to avoid psychiatry thus far but I'm moving around....lemme know when yer running...cheers, Cas Liber | talk | contribs 20:36, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

PS: I'll be sticking this on FAC soon (probably this week), so let us know if you see anything remiss..or come and vote! cheers, Cas Liber | talk | contribs 21:54, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

...I can't bear the suspense.. I think I've done all I can and I've nominated Amanita phalloides at FAC....cheers, Cas Liber | talk | contribs 05:35, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

It's June 1

Let me know when you'd like your RfA up! -- Samir 05:36, 1 June 2007 (UTC)


Thanks for the space filling image of the lorazepam molecule. When printing the article, the grey (carbon) bits in the middle are too close in their shade, and come out as entirely black on an inkjet printer. Would it be possible to lighten up the grey bits or to give them some texture?

Also, I've slightly untidied your tidy work re links - further links have been added the old way and now there are double numbers. When you have time, would you wiki-ise them too? Petlif 05:55, 1 June 2007 (UTC)


.. done! Tell me what you think - Alison 05:32, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

Yup. Looks great! Just call the shot, and we'll pull the trigger. I'm on call this w/e so e-mail me and I'll put it up when I can -- Samir 06:36, 2 June 2007 (UTC)
If you can't get hold of Samir, leave me a note and I'll put it live and fill in the usuals. I'll be around the weekend on-and-off - Alison 06:43, 2 June 2007 (UTC) (heh - so much for the wikibreak :) )
Thank you both—looks great :) Feel free to pull the trigger whenever you're ready (that goes for both of you!) Looks like you'll both be busy over the weekend, so anywhere between now and Monday will be fine ;) Fvasconcellos (t·c) 15:28, 2 June 2007 (UTC)
It's been copied into place --> Wikipedia:Requests_for_adminship/Fvasconcellos. Just needs signing and transclusion onto the RfA page - Alison 18:29, 2 June 2007 (UTC)
You might want to "accept" this nom, when you're ready. Then one of us can put it live :) - Alison 04:07, 3 June 2007 (UTC)
Aceita, por favor, amigo meu! I can't wait for this to go live so I can support! ;) Phaedriel - 15:58, 3 June 2007 (UTC)
Done :) That would have been somewhat of an omission on my part... ;) Fvasconcellos (t·c) 16:13, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

Re: Love in the Time of Science

If you were referring to the upside-down statement, then yeah, I removed that because I thought it redundant. If you were referring to the upper caption, I changed that because "Alternate cover" is the de-facto standard for alternate covers. (We really should codify that...) Have a nice day. --PEJL 19:18, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

Yes, that was it (the upside-down thing). Best, Fvasconcellos (t·c) 20:33, 2 June 2007 (UTC)


Get it transcluded so I can go to the library! Ryan Postlethwaite 16:14, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

Well, it would be a serious conflict of interest if I should do it myself, don't you think? If everyone's in such a hurry, you may want to give Allie a nod and ask her to do it ;) Fvasconcellos (t·c) 16:15, 3 June 2007 (UTC)
Nah it's not, everyone transcludes there own nom! I might have to wait then to add my support! Ryan Postlethwaite 16:17, 3 June 2007 (UTC)
Well, Phaedriel beat me to it! I skipped over to Commons for a second and there you go. Fvasconcellos (t·c) 16:39, 3 June 2007 (UTC)
Woo!! It's up and running. Fingers and toes crossed for you :) - Alison 17:41, 3 June 2007 (UTC)
Thank you :) Fvasconcellos (t·c) 17:45, 3 June 2007 (UTC)


Thanks for dealing with the SVG, your Support would be welcome, but as you say, there is probably enough in the way of feedback! :) TimVickers 16:31, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

No problem. I've been watching the article's evolution (badump-bump) from afar... As you can see above, I'm a bit busy :) Fvasconcellos (t·c) 16:33, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

RfA Q4

I hope I'm inferring correctly on this. By saying "simple", do you mean an edit war that's over some little issue that really isn't beneficial for the article? There are a number of instances where users just like to piss each other off, and it would be best to warn them instead of protecting, but then there are other cases where the users are calling each other names, but are fighting over something worth merit in the article. If that's the "simple" you're referring to, then I would agree. I just want to clarify that bit up because I might not be the only one who is not entirely sure about what you said there. Thanks, and sorry for bugging you about this issue so much :-P. Nishkid64 (talk) 17:51, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

Your RfA - Q5

Hi, I left an optional question for you at your RfA. - TwoOars 18:58, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

Ahem. Another Optional (followup) question. (I'll prolly keep on asking if you keep on answering) - TwoOars 19:50, 3 June 2007 (UTC)


Hi and thanks for the welcome. Hope I can ask you an ontopic question since you have an interest in chemistry articles. I am collecting stuff for a new article on a chemical compound, and would like to add a structural diagram too. Do you know any free software which can generate these, preferably in the same style that most wikipedia images use? (I've tried downloading a trial version of ChemDraw but it wouldn't even install.) Thanks! PXE-M0F 21:36, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the pointers to the program and the guidelines; this was exactly what I needed! PXE-M0F 21:50, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

Good luck

Wasn't around much on the weekend, but I see that Phaedriel transcluded the RfA. Good luck Fvasconcellos! -- Samir 06:51, 4 June 2007 (UTC)


Could you take a look at the Tenofovir page? There are two pictures Tenofovir in the infobox and Tenofovir disoproxil fumarate under the box. I tried to get them both in the box, but couldn't figure out how to get separate captions. Thanks G716 15:52, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

Thanks! I would never have figured that out. G716 04:23, 5 June 2007 (UTC)
You're welcome :) Fvasconcellos (t·c) 19:33, 5 June 2007 (UTC)


Hi there, thanks for the welcome. I'm going to be very active here, as I have to tell the world about a magnetic antigravity motor that runs on homeopathic gasoline. The fools told me it could never be built, but I proved them wrong A THOUSAND TIMES OVER!!!!!!!!! TimVickers 16:05, 6 June 2007 (UTC)


Hi Fvas

It's very kind of you to make that comment. I think a lot of key text in a wiki needs to be overhauled periodically to get rid of the fluff and bloat that is inevitable in committee writing. It's made easier by the little resistance from MoS people, although there's certainly enough activity about dashes (and a spat brewing with the main article people!). I'm about to replace the problematic Sino–Soviet diplomacy (?should be hyphen) to 3–2 decision of the Supreme Court. Tony 14:54, 9 June 2007 (UTC)

Congratulations on your no-hitter

It is my pleasure to inform you that you are now an admin. Congratulations. You can feel free to do everything you're supposed to do and nothing you're not supposed to do. If you haven't already, now is the time look through the Wikipedia:Administrators' how-to guide and Wikipedia:Administrators' reading list. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me, or at the Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard. Best wishes and good luck, -- Cecropia 16:23, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

Congratulations. Well-deserved, and I'm sure you'll do a great job. Please let me know if you have any questions, and feel free to block me for practice. (just kidding about the last part). MastCell Talk 16:35, 10 June 2007 (UTC)
Eh Mastcell ? - surely the "just kidding" is not the "last part" of "for practice", but instead should be the "penultinate part" of "feel free to block me" :-) Anyway well done David Ruben Talk 17:04, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

My pleasure, and congrats on your mop and bucket :) Peacent 17:21, 10 June 2007 (UTC)
Well .... I'm absolutely delighted your RfA passed so spectacularly. Enjoy the new buttons - they're useful, and welcome to the team of admins. You'll do an awesome job :) - Alison 17:34, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

Yes, totally satisfactory :). And you were quite a diplomat. Please do check if your admin bits and pieces are working (by deleting the main page, blocking Jimbo and protecting... ahem. enough said.)- TwoOars 17:41, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

Yep. Won't last long if I'm not careful about where I practice :) Fvasconcellos (t·c) 17:42, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

Congrats! Deb 17:50, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

Hi Fvasconcellos, I am really happy to see your promotion to admin - I think Wikipedia will benefit a lot from it. Thank you for agreeing to help us - we need every good person we can get. Good luck, and feel free to contact me if you need any help. Crum375 18:00, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

Congratulations! *jumping up and down wildly* And thanks for the beautiful senryū, I shall treasure it :) If you need any help, feel free to give me a whistle and I'll try my best. Take care FV :) Riana 18:04, 10 June 2007 (UTC)
PS... nudge towards rollback... much more fun ;) Cheers! Riana 18:07, 10 June 2007 (UTC)
If I make 5 nonsense edits to your page one after the other, if you click rollback, it'll go back to the last version before my edits. I'd forgotten that normal scripts don't do that, and my reverts lately have been decidedly amateurish :) As for the knuckle-cracking, that's wonderful! Good luck with the 'why did you deleet my articlez?!!!' ;) Riana 18:17, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

Congratulations on your successful RfA. Good Luck working here as an admin. BH (T|C) 18:13, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

Have a caipirinha!

Goodness, Fv, I'm sorry to see that almost no one on Wikipedia likes you :-) And you didn't have a "tiny part" in the success of TS—you're a BIG part of that article's integrity, and I'm glad you like it. Congratulations !! SandyGeorgia (Talk) 19:44, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

Thanks, Sandy. I'm glad I've been able to help on such a great article, and yes, it is one of my favorites :) Now, what's this? (*sip* *sip*) (gets drunk, deletes Main Page, goes on block spree) Fvasconcellos (t·c) 19:47, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

Fagulhas, pontas de agulhas, Brilham estrelas de São João, Babados, xotes e xaxados, Segura as pontas meu coração, Bombas na guerra-magia, Ninguem matava, ninguem morria, Nas trincheiras da alegria, O que explodia era o amor, E ardia aquela fogueira, Que me esquenta a vida inteira, Eterna noite sempre a primeira, Festa do Interior!

Hi Fvasconcellos! Congratulations on your successful RfA. I have no doubts that you will be a great administrator for the project. Becoming an administrator at first is difficult, but I am assured that you will handle all situations correctly. Congratulations again, Fvasconcellos! ;) –Sebi ~ 22:14, 10 June 2007 (UTC) It appears I have a bit of a late reply... oh well. Congrats again Fvas! ;)

Please also accept my (somewhat late) congratulations. I found your response to Q5 to be simply exceptional and was thus happy to support you. Best of luck, Black Falcon (Talk) 20:33, 12 June 2007 (UTC)
Congratulations. Here are what pass for words of wisdom from the puppy:
  1. Remember you will always protect the wrong version.
  2. Remember you must always follow the rules, except for when you ignore them. You will always pick the wrong one to do. (See #5)
  3. Remember to assume good faith and not bite. Remember that when you are applying these principles most diligently, you are probably dealing with a troll.
  4. Use the block ability sparingly. Enjoy the insults you receive when you do block.
  5. Remember when you make these errors, someone will be more than happy to point them out to you in dazzling clarity and descriptive terminology.
  6. and finally, Remember to contact me if you ever need assistance, and I will do what I am able.

Traiteur (French chef)

I changed the title to Traiteur (culinary profession) which makes more sense, thanks for the suggestion. I agree it should be expanded, but I felt for the short term it should be pulled out of the Traiteur article in which it made no sense to be in as it is about a Cajun cultural healer.--Christopher Tanner, CCC 20:04, 13 June 2007 (UTC)

Sarah Trimmer image

Thank you for fixing the Sarah Trimmer image. I am still confused about the image syntax, though. When I went to the page today, it said "SarahTrimmer.jpg" in the infobox but no picture appeared. I then wrote [[Image:SarahTrimmer.jpg]] and the image appeared, but with the line of code behind it. When "SarahTrimmer.jpg" is used, does it require an image size as you have included? Awadewit | talk 22:24, 13 June 2007 (UTC)

Inner sanctum records

Hey, it appears that you deleted my page on Inner Sanctum Records and I want it back. This bleeding bureaucracy is absurd.The Inner Sanctum page was a historical document and not a f*&^ing advertisement which you would have noticed had you bothered to read it. Inner Sanctum hasn't existed in ~20 years but was of great importance when it did. So, gimme the page back. And yeah, I could have written this in portugues but didn't figure you, with all your stars were worth it. Give it back! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Krome (talkcontribs) 02:34, 17 June 2007

Replied on your Talk page. Fvasconcellos (t·c) 03:01, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

Entao, I can't replicate the page because, while I started it it was extensively edited by some people with more knowledge than I have(which just goes to show that I am not the only one interested). Is there no copy of the page left? Did you really just delete that singular piece of work? I mean I can maybe get the contributors to write it again but it won't be the same. Krome

If you would please put the page somewhere I can work on it I would appreciate it. There are others interested in keeping it up and between us I think we can establish why it should be available. Muito obrigado and I promise to stop calling names.


And BTW, if you take a look at the page, you will notice that there are mentioned quite a number of bands/musicians who played at the record store before they were well known and they HAVE WIKI PAGES. I mean why isn't the Big Boys page deleted? Do you think they would even have a page without Inner Sanctum? Probably not.


Obrigado pra pagina e quando eu gosto de mover esta to the main page how do I do it?

Hey FV! At the time I was too tired to check out whether it was a copyvio, but I think for safety's sake we should delete it and restore it as a stub. I'll do so now if you like Riana (talk) 15:26, 22 June 2007 (UTC)
