World Climate Report[edit]

I left the following comment on William Connolley's Talk page:

"Hello Mr. Connolley. You removed this clause from the page "but clearly evinces an acceptance of anthropogenic global warming" saying that you saw no such evidence. I then reverted it and added supporting evidence in two references. You then removed the clause once again, saying that the first reference didn't show such acceptance and that the second was not WCR. To address the second first, as I see it the Michaels article that I cited in reference #2 is relevant because he is the chief editor of WCR. His viewpoint dominates. And that article shows he accepts AGW and CO2 as an AGHG. Regarding reference #1, it reads "There is no doubt that fossil fuel burning around the world is causing an increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration, and CO2 remains the number one anthropo-generated greenhouse gas." I think this is pretty clear and is in keeping with Michaels views as he has expressed them in numerous venues. I think this puts the burden of proof on you to provide clear and incontrovertible evidence that WCR and Michaels do not accept AGW. Finally, and I hope you don't take this personally as it is not meant as an ad hominem, but I note that you are a member of a rival organization to WCR, namely Real Climate. One might see a conflict of interest here, especially in the absence of any evidence against WCR and Michaels's acceptance of AGW. Cordially, Geoffrey Plauche (

In case you're not aware of it, I draw to your attention WP:3RR William M. Connolley 09:37, 4 May 2007 (UTC)

I'm aware of WP:3RR, thank you, but I don't believe I reverted more than three times. I only reverted two times yesterday, in fact. The other changes I made were not reverts. They were either unrelated to the issue being disputed or were separate attempts to satisfy you on the issue. Geoffrey Allan Plauche 14:30, 4 May 2007 (UTC)
I wasn't implying you had broken it, or were close to it, merely making sure you kne about it. Glad you knew already William M. Connolley 21:27, 4 May 2007 (UTC)

Copied Userboxes[edit]

Hello, I see that you know how to transclude userboxes (using {{}}), so could you work on doing this with all your userboxes? Please don't delete all your userboxes, but to start could you take your sci-fi userbox out of Category:Book fan user templates? It is also in the category suppression templates category. It consists of all this to transclude to take your page from these categories:

<div style="float: left; border:solid black 1px; margin: 1px;"> {| cellspacing="1" style="width: 238px; background: silver;" | style="width: 45px; height: 45px; background: "336699"; text-align: center; font-size: {{{5|{{{id-s|14}}}}}}pt; color: {{{id-fc|black}}};" | [[Image:Terra.png|50px]] | style="font-size: {{{info-s|8}}}pt; padding: 4pt; line-height: 1.25em; color: {{{info-fc|black}}};" | This [[:Category:Wikipedians who read sci-fi|user]] enjoys reading '''[[science fiction]]'''. |}</div> <includeonly>{{#ifeq:{{{category}}}|no||[[Category:Wikipedians who read sci-fi|{{PAGENAME}}]]}}</includeonly> <noinclude>[[Category:Book fan user templates|Sci-fi]] [[Category:Category suppression supporting templates|{{PAGENAME}}]]</noinclude>

Replace this with {{User:Blast san/userboxes/User sci-fi}}

If you need help feel free to ask for help I could do your page without getting rid of a single userbox, just transcluding, in less than an hour. -PatPeter 15:31, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

I'm not exactly sure what you mean. I used your provided code for the sci-fi box as you recommended, but I don't know how to go about changing the others. Geoffrey Allan Plauche 17:18, 4 June 2007 (UTC)
Give me your permission and I can help you fix that. I will work to find the original userboxes, but tell me if any of these are your userboxes so that I can show you how to subpage that. Message me in the ==Userboxes== Section to my userpage. -PatPeter 01:55, 20 June 2007 (UTC)
I am going to type down notes for the other userboxes

Your Page Title[edit]

Obviously your page title and your signature are different which can cause confusion, so I would suggest to you to copy this code and put it at the top of your userpage:

<div id="title-override" class="topicon" style="float: left; position: absolute; left: 0; top: 0px; width: 98%; padding-top: 5px; display:none">
<div style="background: {{#ifeq:{{PAGENAME}}|{{FULLPAGENAME}}|white|#F8FCFF}}; font-size: 188%; padding-top: 0.5em; padding-bottom: 0.1em; position:relative; left:0.5em; margin-top:-0.2em;">

Requesting your input at Wikipedia:WikiProject Economics/Featured Article drive[edit]

Since you are a member of WikiProject Economics, I would like to direct your attention to Wikipedia:WikiProject Economics/Featured Article drive. We are currently deciding on an economics-related article to bring to Featured Article status and we would like your input. Thanks! Gary King (talk) 15:16, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

WikiProject Economics census[edit]

Hello there. Sorry to bother you, but you are (titularly at least) a member of WP:WikiProject Economics, as defined by this category. If you don't know me, I'm a Wikipedia administrator, but an unqualified economist. I enjoy writing about economics, but I'm not very good at it, which is why I would like to support in any way I can the strong body of economists here on Wikipedia. I'm only bothering you because you are probably one of them. Together, I'd like us to establish the future direction of WikiProject Economics, but first, we need to know who we've got to help.

Whatever your area of expertise or level of qualification, if you're interested in helping with the WikiProject (even if only as part of a larger commitment to this wonderful online encyclopedia of ours), would you mind adding your signature to this page? It only takes a second. Thank you.

Wikipedia Campus Ambassadors wanted at LSU[edit]

Hi! I'm leaving you this message because you are listed as a Wikipedian in Louisiana. The Wikipedia Ambassador Program is currently looking for Campus Ambassadors to help with Wikipedia assignments at Louisiana State University, which will be participating in the Public Policy Initiative for the Spring 2011 semester. The role of Campus Ambassadors will be to provide face-to-face training and support for students on Wikipedia-related skills (how to edit articles, how to add references, etc.). This includes doing in-class presentations, running workshops and labs, possibly holding office hours, and in general providing in-person mentorship for students.

Prior Wikipedia skills are not required for the role, as training will be provided for all Campus Ambassadors (although, of course, being an experienced editor is a plus).

If you live near Baton Rouge and you are interested in being a Wikipedia Campus Ambassador, or know someone else from the area who might be, please email me or leave a message on my talk page.--Sage Ross - Online Facilitator, Wikimedia Foundation (talk) 17:16, 6 December 2010 (UTC)
