Speedy deletion nomination of Discrete exponential function[edit]

Hello Garfield Garfield,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Discrete exponential function for deletion, because it doesn't appear to contain any encyclopedic content. Take a look at our suggestions for essential content in short articles to learn what should be included.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Karlhard (talk) 19:00, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

Welcome to Wikipedia. You've been working a lot on the Discrete exponential function article. How do you feel about merging its content into the related article Modular exponentiation? See also Exponentiation by squaring, which covers much of the same material too. Ideally we would end up with one article per topic, rather than several articles on a single topic. Mgnbar (talk) 13:42, 2 October 2014 (UTC)

Foot locker protocol[edit]

This is very interesting, but it's not an encyclopedia article, because it involves original research, and is not tertiary. Do you have access to ArXiv? That might be a better place to post your new ideas. Bearian (talk) 15:46, 2 October 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Anecdotes on Mathematicians[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute to Wikipedia, introducing inappropriate pages, such as Anecdotes on Mathematicians, is not in accordance with our policies.

Hi there.

When editing an article on Wikipedia, you will see a small field labeled "Edit summary" shown under the main edit box. It looks like this:

Edit summary (Briefly describe your changes)


The text written here will appear on the Recent changes page, in the page revision history, on the diff page, and in the watchlists of users who are watching that article. See m:Help:Edit summary for full information on this feature.

Filling in the edit summary field greatly helps your fellow contributors in understanding what you changed, so please always fill in the edit summary field. If you are adding a section, please do not just keep the previous section's header in the Edit summary field – please fill in your new section's name instead. Thank you. --Dodi 8238 (talk) 15:14, 31 October 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of NSA's Hard Drive Hacking[edit]

Hello Garfield Garfield,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged NSA's Hard Drive Hacking for deletion, because it appears to duplicate an existing Wikipedia article, [[{{{article}}}]]. PLEASE: WHAT'S THE NAME OF THE ARTICLE?

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. ubiquity (talk) 22:04, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

There is a substantial article on the National Security Agency, including a section on their hacking operations. If you have sourced information that is not already in that article, that is where it belongs. I'm sorry it took me so long to respond, but I didn't see your request. In the future, please put comments on User Talk pages, not User pages, and please sign your comments using four tildes (~~~~). This will facilitate communications. Thanks. ubiquity (talk) 18:50, 12 March 2015 (UTC)

Accelerating universe[edit]


A pair of IP editors are adding massive amounts of bad material and this is being discussed at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Physics#Accelerating universe. When I reverted the IP stuff, some of your changes went with it, I am afraid. I have requested page semi-protection. so it might be better to wait for that to be decided before attempting further corrections. — Cheers, Steelpillow (Talk) 19:03, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

March 2015[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm SummerPhD. Wikipedia is written by people who have a wide diversity of opinions, but we try hard to make sure articles have a neutral point of view. Your recent edit to Zulu (1964 film) seemed less than neutral to me, so I removed it for now. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. SummerPhD (talk) 00:47, 9 March 2015 (UTC) I replaced it with a neutral article.

Information icon Please do not add promotional material to Wikipedia, as you did to Zulu (1964 film). While objective prose about beliefs, products or services is acceptable, Wikipedia is not intended to be a vehicle for soapboxing, advertising or promotion. Thank you. Thelimiter (talk) 14:57, 9 March 2015 (UTC) I'm sorry. I will stop doing this. (I am not being paid, honest.)

Warning icon Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to add soapboxing, promotional or advertising material to Wikipedia, as you did at Born Free, you may be blocked from editing. Also, King Kong (1976 film). TJRC (talk) 18:34, 9 March 2015 (UTC) But I did stop. Those were old edits. I made them before I received your complaint. I was going to try and track them down and remove them. You beat me to it. I will confine my unpaid salesmanship to from now on. Garfield Garfield.

Information icon Please do not add or change content, as you did to Lawrence of Arabia (film), without citing a reliable source. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Thank you. DonIago (talk) 23:22, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

re gold[edit]

Yes, your explanation explains why the elements in that row are so dense. But it doesn't fully explain the Au–Pb density difference, as the contraction of the inner electron orbitals (especially 1s) is about the same for both (as they're not far apart in atomic number, relativistic effects should be pretty similar in magnitude – the relativistic mass of the electron in Pb81+ is only 2.46% more than that of the electron in Au78+, for example). If I had to guess, I think one reason is because Pb has 6p electrons and Au doesn't, and due to the inert pair effect the 6s–6p difference is high enough to cause this sort of effect. That's not even the full story, probably: Au and Pb both have a cubic closed-packed crystal structure, but the unit cell is smaller for Au (407.82 pm) than for Pb (495.08 pm), so Au is packed more densely. I don't think that's all the reasons yet: I'd expect it to be complicated still. This illustrates why we need a citation to a reliable source for any explanation posted.

Erdos most visited places[edit]

It sis not completely clear to me what the significance of this list is, but more importantly: can any of it be sourced to anything? (The fact that he spent time at Memphis, sure; but the fact that it is a place he visited unusually frequently?) --JBL (talk) 14:01, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

May 2015[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Ebyabe. An edit that you recently made to MV Faust seemed to be a test and has been removed. If you want more practice editing, please use the sandbox. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks! Ebyabe talk - General Health ‖ 18:05, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

June 2015[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Fazbear7891. I wanted to let you know that I reverted one of your recent contributions —the one you made with this edit to Robot Hall of Fame— because it didn’t appear constructive to me. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks. Fazbear7891 (talk) 23:13, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

September 2015[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm ScrapIronIV. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Rare-earth magnet, 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. Thank you. ScrpIronIV 18:46, 24 September 2015 (UTC)

November 2015[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Ï¿½. Your recent edit to the page Inline function appears to have added incorrect information, so I have removed it for now. If you believe the information was correct, please cite a reliable source or discuss your change on the article's talk page. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. According to , “'inline' doesn't replace the text with the function body the way a macro does. It replaces the function call with the EQUIVALENT generated code, so that functionaly it's no different than if it weren't inline.” � (talk) 15:18, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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.

Stop icon

When adding links to material on external sites, as you did to The Beatles (album), please ensure that the external site is not violating the creator's copyright. Linking to websites that display copyrighted works is acceptable as long as the website's operator has created or licensed the work. Knowingly directing others to a site that violates copyright may be considered contributory infringement. This is particularly relevant when linking to sites such as YouTube or Sci-Hub, where due care should be taken to avoid linking to material that violates its creator's copyright. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously, and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If you believe the linked site is not violating copyright with respect to the material, then you should do one of the following:

  • If the linked site is the copyright holder, leave a message explaining the details on the article Talk page;
  • If a note on the linked site credibly claims permission to host the material, or a note on the copyright holder's site grants such permission, leave a note on the article Talk page with a link to where we can find that note;
  • If you are the copyright holder or the external site administrator, adjust the linked site to indicate permission as above and leave a note on the article Talk page;

If the material is available on a different site that satisfies one of the above conditions, link to that site instead. Sundayclose (talk) 01:28, 13 August 2016 (UTC)
