Image copyright problem with Image:TeslaEffect.gif[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Hi GLPeterson!
We thank you for uploading Image:TeslaEffect.gif, but there is a problem. Your image is currently missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. Unless you can help by adding a copyright tag, it may be deleted by an Administrator. If you know this information, then we urge you to add a copyright tag to the image description page.

Edit summaries, etc.[edit]

Hello,

I appreciate the efforts you're putting into improving the Wireless energy transfer article, but I have two gripes:

  • Could you please use edit summaries!
  • Could you please combine some of your many small edits into fewer, larger edits in the future, if possible.

Both of these are currently making it very hard for people who have the page on their watchlist to tell what's going on!

Best regards, Oli Filth(talk|contribs) 14:43, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

New Art of Projecting Concentrated Non-Dispersive Energy Through Natural Media[edit]

This is an automated message from VWBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of New Art of Projecting Concentrated Non-Dispersive Energy Through Natural Media, and it appears to include material copied directly from http://www.teslaradio.com/pages/teleforce.htm.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details.

The article New Art of Projecting Concentrated Non-Dispersive Energy Through Natural Media has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Speedy deletion nomination of New Art of Projecting Concentrated Non-Dispersive Energy Through Natural Media[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on New Art of Projecting Concentrated Non-Dispersive Energy Through Natural Media requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article or image appears to be a clear copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website or image but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. NTox · talk 16:46, 9 September 2012 (UTC)

Transposer[edit]

Hi GLPeterson, thanks for expanding the article Transposer. However, I see that you have changed the word transposer to translator . As far as I know in professional documents the word transposer is preferred for ground station technology. Can you please check if the word translator has replaced transposer recently ? Thanks.

Article length at wireless power[edit]

We should probably not devote excess space in an article on historical dead ends tangential to the current state of the art. We probably don't serve the reader well with lengthy quotations from Tesla on how he thought the laws of physics worked, when these are (hem) at variance with the current understanding. The article wireless power is already far too long for its contents and needs to be a concise overview of the field, not just another place to trot out the same old tired fanboy claims (which are already lovingly and minutely detailed in the Tesla-specific articles), --Wtshymanski (talk) 13:42, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

When knowledge, facts, or solutions are sought, there are a number of techniques available from which to select.  These techniques can be ranked according to their effectiveness, from the most certain to the most uncertain.  At the top, or level one, is measurement; but even excellent measurements can be subject to small amounts of error.  Level two is cause and effect.  That's a rigorous deduction based on the laws of nature; on the conservation of mass, energy, and momentum; on Newtonian mechanics, Ohm's law, Charles's law, and all those kinds of relationships.  These techniques for solving problems are not error free, but they do provide reliable and repeatable results.  At the third level I put correlation studies.  These are statistical techniques which allow the drawing of general and reasonable conclusions, but imprecise conclusions.  An example of this is when you hear a conclusion such as 62 percent of the people who eat pistachio ice cream 20 or more times a week tend to gain weight.  The fourth level is opinion sampling.  Conclusions here can be useful, but they are often temperable and not repeatable. . . . — Neil Armstrong

OR and WP:NOTMIRROR[edit]

I have noted at Talk:Wireless power the problems with your edits re: drawing conclusions from primary sources and/or using them, or FRINGE writers opinions on them, as statements of fact in Wikipedia (see WP:YESPOV). I have also noted, (and noted before at Talk:Teleforce#Proposed Deletion) your ownership of the main sources you are citing, tfcbooks.com and TESLARADIO.COM, which, with wholesale quoting and paraphrasing of these sources, is getting to the point of violating WP:NOTMIRROR. I noted your use of Wikisource[1] for this material. May I suggest following that line of editing for this material instead? Fountains of Bryn Mawr (talk) 02:12, 10 October 2014 (UTC)

Your user page[edit]

Why do you have what appears to be a copy of World Wireless System on your user page? I haven't compared it to see if it's identical, but, regardless, user pages are intended to be used in that manner.--Bbb23 (talk) 01:45, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

Dear Sir,

Thank you for taking an interest in my case. As you may already be aware, I have contacted Wikipedia by e-mail on 12/7/2014 with a request for assistance in my ongoing effort to counter what I perceive as a violation of Wikipedia policy and to correct a fundamental error that has been introduced into the Wireless power article (see RE: [Ticket#2014120710007851] Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents).  I learned that no mechanism exists for the assignment of legal counsel to assist me, in light of which I proceeded forward in the best manner that I know of.  This involved making changes to the article with accompanying explanations of those changes.  This good-faith effort has resulted in the present state of affairs.

In answer to your question about my user page, I had no idea that such use is strictly forbidden.  I'll make the appropriate adjustments forthwith.

Getting back to the matter at hand, to wit, my ongoing work to improve the Wireless power article and what I perceive as a disruptive effort on the part of three Wikipedia Users to stifle my efforts, how do you suggest that I proceed?  I am willing to endure the psychological pain that I am presently experiencing, suffer the 48 hour block, and then resume my present interaction with these individuals on the article's Talk page, if this is the least offensive alternative to all parties involved.

Respectfully and sincerely yours,
Gary Peterson, GPeterson (talk) 16:36, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for your response. What adjustments do you plan to make to your user page after your block expires? I can remove the article portion of your user page now if you wish.--Bbb23 (talk) 16:53, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

Thank you in advance for your assistance.  Please remove everything following

Take the initiative.  Go to work, and above all co-operate and don't hold back on one another or try to gain at the expense of another.  Any success in such lopsidedness will be increasingly short-lived.  These are the synergetic rules that evolution is employing and trying to make clear to us.  They are not man-made laws.  They are the infinitely accommodative laws of the intellectual integrity governing universe.

Request for Assistance[edit]

Sir (Bbb23). It appears my intellectual tools are insufficient to cope with the present level of uncivil discourse that exists on Wikipedia, and all the more so as time passes. Are you available to review my next comment when I post it on the Wireless power article talk page after my being blocked for edit warring? The link is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Wireless_power#Electrical_Conduction .--GPeterson (talk) 09:33, 15 December 2014 (UTC)

Bbb23. Is the bulk removal of technical details from an article bearing the tag, "This article may be too technical for most readers to understand. Please help improve this article to make it understandable to non-experts, without removing the technical details. The talk page may contain suggestions." a violation of Wikipedia policy?--GPeterson (talk) 11:38, 15 December 2014 (UTC)

Sir (Bbb23). I have spent a sleepless night worrying, Looking forward to your guidance. Respectfully, Gary Peterson, GPeterson (talk) 14:38, 15 December 2014 (UTC)

I appreciate your seeking guidance, but I'm not altogether clear what you're asking. What's most important at this point is that you use the article Talk page to discuss any changes you wish to make and that you obtain a clear consensus from other editors for your proposed changes. Otherwise, if you change the article in any way that restores your preferred version or even part of it, it will be seen as a resumption of edit warring and may result in a longer block. Does that answer your question? Finally, don't lose sleep over this. It's not worth it. If it's too upsetting to you to edit here - and I acknowledge that editing at Wikipedia can be hard for many people until they become experienced - then don't edit here. I don't mean that "to get rid of you". I mean it sincerely. Your health and your real life are much more important than Wikipedia. Oh, by the way, I can't always respond quickly as I, too, have a real life.Face-smile.svg --Bbb23 (talk) 02:36, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for you prompt response. I'm interested in learning if the bulk removal of technical details from an article bearing the tag, "This article may be too technical for most readers to understand. Please help improve this article to make it understandable to non-experts, without removing the technical details. The talk page may contain suggestions" might be judged to be an infringement of Wikipedia policy. As for my poor behavior, I have learned my lesson and will be operating in a much different manner from now on.--GPeterson (talk) 03:18, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
I would say that a significant removal of material from the article based on the tag is a bad idea at this point. However, you may propose such a removal on the Talk page.--Bbb23 (talk) 06:00, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
Thank you, this is valuable information.--GPeterson (talk) 17:38, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

Changes to Wireless power or Wireless energy transmission[edit]

Bbb23. Please note that User:Roches and User:Chetvorno have made additional changes to the Wireless power or Wireless energy transmission article during the period starting 13 December 2014 up to the present. While the recent modifications have some merit, previous issues of contention are still to be addressed.

A Rookie Mistake[edit]

Bbb23. Re: Reverted edits by GLPeterson (talk) to last version by Bbb23 - not on your user page (again)).  I need to work on a Draft of proposed revisions to the above article and used my user page by mistake. Where do I find the instructions for Draft creation?--GPeterson (talk) 15:00, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

Bbb23. Found it! (Wikipedia:User pages)
Good, but I'm confused by what you're doing. First, normally you would create a draft as a subpage of your user page, not as a subpage of your talk page. You've done both.
The Talk page associated with /Draft came into existence when I placed a first entry on the /Draft page's Talk page.
Second, generally a draft is of a new article, not of an existing article. Are you trying to create "your version" of the existing article? I don't have the time to compare the two, so it's easier just to ask you. Anyway, please explain a bit more what you're doing.
The Draft page is a duplicate of the draft text, plus subsequent changes, that was posted as a replacement of the actual article without full consensus on 16 December 2014. I alerted you of this action in my previous message. The existing illegitimate "article" contains errors and omissions that I am preparing to address at this time, hence the two new user pages.
Also, I can delete subpages that you don't need, or you can request the deletions yourself by adding {{db-U1}} at the top of the page, in which case any administrator can do it.--Bbb23 (talk) 01:46, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the tip.--GPeterson (talk) 18:21, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

Recent Wireless power edits[edit]

I respect your desire to improve the article. But we're all working toward that goal. I don't understand some of your edits, for example the figures in the "Directivity" column of the table in the "Overview" section.

User talk:Chetvorno: The directivity of an actual antenna can vary from 1.76 dBi for a short dipole, to as much as 50 dBi for a large dish antenna. See Directivity. GPeterson (talk) 00:31, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. Now could you discuss your proposed changes on the Talk page so everyone interested in the article can participate and we can achieve consensus? --ChetvornoTALK 03:34, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Information icon Hello, I'm MrX. I noticed that you made a change to an article, World Wireless System, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed and archived in the page history for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Please avoid using archaic wording from 100+ year old primary sources when describing technology and please check to make sure that what you add is actually in the cited sources. - MrX 03:01, 13 September 2015 (UTC)

Reverting back pages deleted by consensus[edit]

Per this revert without comment and this revert with comment that you are "Continued development in anticipation of merging with the "Surface wave article", redirect pages are not for developing articles, please use your personal project space. If you are WP:BRD restoring this page it has been returned to the status quo ante, so you should "discuss" and not engage in back-and-forth reverts because that will probably be viewed as edit-warring.

October 2015[edit]

Stop icon You may be blocked from editing without further warning the next time you violate Wikipedia's no original research policy by inserting unpublished information or your personal analysis into an article, as you did at World Wireless System. - MrX 21:34, 4 October 2015 (UTC)

GLPeterson: it might be helpful if you chimed in on the talk page of World Wireless System to discuss your proposed changes with other editors. clpo13(talk) 22:41, 4 October 2015 (UTC)
clpo13: I've tried that in the past and my efforts have been stifled. I would like to take a stab at implementing a program of consensus decision-making using the Quaker-based model (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Consensus_decision-making#Quaker-based_model) but have come to believe there is no mechanism for assigning a facilitator to get the ball rolling. Wikipedia editing used to be a joyful experience. Over the last 12 or so months it has become psychologically taxing. Nevertheless, I will try to persevere, with hope that I might eventually make a small contribution leading to betterment of the human condition. Thank you for your kind concern.

“Starting from two facts that the earth is a conductor insulated in space, and that a body cannot be charged without causing an equivalent displacement of electricity in the earth, I undertook to construct a machine suited for creating as large a displacement as possible of the earth's electricity.”

“If ever we can ascertain at what period the earth's charge, when disturbed, oscillates with respect to an oppositely electrified system or known circuit, we shall know a fact possibly of the greatest importance to the welfare of the human race.  I propose to seek for the period by means of an electrical oscillator, or a source of alternating electric currents."

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
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.

Disambiguation link notification for January 17[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Wireless power, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Electronic jamming. 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.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 09:05, 17 January 2016 (UTC)

October 2016[edit]

Information icon Try to keep Wikipedia's policies in mind and avoid inserting unpublished information or your personal analysis into an article, as you did at Wireless power transfer [3]. Section headings are by consensus, please propose and explain changes in talk (talk is ongoing[4]). You should not copy/paste material (Bose) without attribution (see: WP:COPYWITHIN) and such material must state (with sources) its significance to the article topic/why its being copied into an article. Also please do not remove reliable secondary sourced material without reason. Fountains of Bryn Mawr (talk) 15:28, 6 October 2016 (UTC)

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Wireless power transfer‎. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware that Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing.
There are multiple editors who dispute your content, and dispute that there is consensus to insert it. You need to stop and get others (maybe some other uninvolved editors) to agree that at least there is some agreement, and recognize that it might not go your way. DMacks (talk) 14:04, 28 October 2016 (UTC)

DMacks, Thank you for taking an interest in the ongoing content editing activity of Wireless power transfer‎. GLPeterson (talk) 18:03, 28 October 2016 (UTC)

You have been blocked indefinitely from editing for persistently making disruptive edits. If you think there are good reasons why you should be unblocked, you may request an unblock by first reading the guide to appealing blocks, then adding the following text to the bottom of your talk page: {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}.

  • Bad case of WP:OWN, failure to engage...you will have to 1.) explain the repeated reverts 2.) regardless of the reason, you will stop. This isn't yours to do with as you please. This is a collaborative site.
     — Berean Hunter (talk) 21:38, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
User:Berean Hunter Please further clarify your actions pursuant to ADMINACCT. GLPeterson (talk) 22:02, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
Which part of the ANI thread or what I have written above don't you understand? Since you blanked the ANI notice as you have other attempts to communicate with you here on this talk page, it is presumed that you have read it. You need to read all of these links that we have been giving you. I note that you haven't been engaging others and further up on your talk page in a warning dated Oct 2015, you were directed to use talk pages but you state "I've tried that in the past and my efforts have been stifled...." and so you rarely if ever reply pursuant to BRD. If you had followed that then you would have conversing here. Given that you keep doing these as-yet-unexplained reverts that are seen as disruptive and refuse to communicate in a meaningful way that leads to you being blocked until we have assurances that you won't continue. Now please explain your actions.

Request reason:

You have my assurances that I will no longer continue to make revisions in this fashion.GLPeterson (talk) 23:29, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

Accept reason:

Thank you. I have taken you at your word that you won't continue and unblocked you. Please use the article talk pages to discuss your ideas with the other editors. Even if other editors disagree with you, there are ways of getting other opinions and mediation that helps avoid edit wars. Of the editors that disagree with you, good ones will still try to help you even if all you can do is agree to disagree. Just ask them.
