Re. WDAS Page[edit]

As you have noticed, someone, we only have an IP, tried to complete the history for the WDAS page. This user's writing style lacks context (this was a critical/financial _______ is not suitable). I think the timeline we had to break up the history was right because decades aren't the best way to organize the history of an organization like WDAS. I'll post some of the completed sections (Move to CG and Lasseter/Catmull) that I've worked on to the rewrite page. Let me know what you think.

WP:MOS on trans women[edit]

Where in the WP:MOS does it address the gender appropriateness of a transsexual? I don't see it mentioned at all. I have no issue with sex changes or gender identity issues, but the Alexis Reich article becomes very confusing when feminine pronouns are used with someone who was a man at the time the article refers to. It appears, by looking at edit histories, that I am not the only one who has seen this as confusing. It would only make sense that one refers to the biological gender identified at the time the event happened--When Reich is John Mark Karr, Reich is a "he", and when Reich is Alexis Reich, Reich is a "she". Eauhomme (talk) 06:46, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

Logging in[edit]

(1) You have asked me several times to log in. I have heard and replied to your requests. Further such requests are not needed. I understand that you would prefer that I log in.

(2) Editors are not required to log in to make edits.

(3) Because I have a dynamic IP address, it changes often, but the first numbers are always "99.192". I make a point of indicating where I am the same person who made a previous edit in the same discussion or on the same page with a different IP address signature by using an "(=99.192...)" style indicator. Knowing which edits are mine is not difficult to determine.

(4) Wikipedia does have policies against people making edits using different logged in names or different IP addresses, but only when it is done to deceive other editors. You can have two different logged in names if you like, one solely to edit articles on classical music and one solely to edit articles on the American interstate highway system. Making edits with different IP addresses is similarly permitted provided there is no attempt to deceive. By indicating where I am the same editor as one who made previous edits in the same conversation, I clearly am not trying to deceive. I am doing the opposite.

(5) You have said you want me to log in "so that [my] edits will be kept together." But edits are not kept together by logging in, only a person's edit history is. In my experience, the only reason people have for wanting to know about my edit history is when they want to make a discussion personal rather than about the subject at hand. If I made edits 6 months ago to update the filmography of Meryl Streep, that is immaterial to the discussion here and so it is odd that you would care about it. If it is important to you to know something about my past editing, you can always ask. But expect my first reply might be: "Why does it matter to you?"

(6) If it is really very important to you to keep a list of all of my edits on the current discussion at Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style, just search the page for all instances of 99.192, click in the IP address, and you will get the lists. You can then copy and paste the information from those pages onto a sub-page on your own user page that you can create for yourself. But why you need to have a master list of all my edits is beyond my understanding.... Unless you want to stalk or harass me.... Which is one more reason not to want to log in.

Male to female[edit]

Hello, I wanted to discuss this with you here. I assume you are a resonable person. My question to you is, do you understand the difference between gender and sex as I have described it to you? I have endeavored to make it as simple as possible. Sex is biologically based, it is the body, the genitals and the secondary sex characteristics. Right? Gender is the social construct of being man or woman. It is in the mind. Transsexual minds are wired differently than cisgender minds. Most people have a congruence between the two. They have a male body and they have a man's mind, or they have a female body and a woman's mind. It is all very straightforward for them. They give it not a second thought. But transgender individuals find that there is a disparity between their body and their mind. Those male bodied may feel that they are more like the women and girls around them, that their thoughts and feelings align more with the thoughts and feelings of a female. Transsexuals report this feelig very early in life, under 7 years old, usually around the time of the first memories. This causes a horrible condition that can only be cured with medical intervention. To treat the condition, the body is made to correspond to the person's gender. Hormonal intervention and surgeries allow the individual to have the body that matchess their gender. Then, they are congruent, a woman in a female body.
There is really no problem with the term male to female. What test do you propose so that I might prove it to you? Would you want to leave the term there if it were reasonable and properly the way to describe the condition of transsexuality? I ask you to consider what I am saying to you and to look into the matter for yourself. If you do, you will find that my description is very close if not exactly what medical professionals would say on the matter. Let's settle this as reasonable adults.

Traditional animation[edit]

You previously participated in a discussion of the title of traditional animation. There is currently a move discussion at Talk:Traditional animation you might be interested in. —  AjaxSmack  00:53, 4 September 2013 (UTC)


I just wanted to point out that transwoman is most often one word. Once again I am annoyed by your trivial edits, because it seems that you WANT there to be confusion. 'trans' is not a word by itself. Actually, using it that way violates key rules itself. Yet, you say that it MUST be used that way. That is false. Once again, you are misinformed. I am just baffled. JanetWand (talk) 15:06, 12 September 2013 (UTC)

hyperbolic tilings with Euclidean polygons[edit]

(Many months late...) Actually, it's not a completely mistaken assumption. Some hyperbolic tilings like {3,7} or {5,4} can be made this way, but that concentrates all the curvature at the vertices of the tiling. Double sharp (talk) 15:37, 16 September 2013 (UTC)

Northeastern United States[edit]

Thanks for your note. I added an explanation on the talk page as to why not Indiana and Michigan (or Illinois, for that matter). There is currently nothing in the article (other than listing definitions that include them) relating to any of those states. Ohio seemed like a borderline case, since the only information in the article that is inclusive of Ohio is about Federal Prisons. If it were up to me, I would subtract out any Federal Prisons in Ohio for the figures in the article, but I'm sure that would result in someone crying about WP:OR.

Angelina from "Giants"[edit]

Ok I'll talk, there's a rumor going around that the female lead named Angelina from the upcoming 2016 Disney film "Giants" based on "Jack and the Beanstalk" is going to join.

Proposed deletion of Sesame Workshop funding sources[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Sesame Workshop funding sources has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

As per this article's tag, the content of this article has been folded into other articles (mostly Sesame Workshop, so there's no longer any need for its existence. Thanks.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

"Birmingham City"[edit]

What do you think about Birmingham City (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) ? It currently redirects to a soccer team, but this is a different target than City of Birmingham (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) redirects to. As you implemented a solution to the flag requiring disambiguation problem, I thought I'd ask your opinion. There are quite a few incoming links on this one though. My personal view is that "Birmingham City" should redirect to Birmingham (disambiguation). -- (talk) 23:43, 1 March 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Interstate 540[edit]

Hello, I have closed Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Interstate 540 as this is a matter for WP:RM, not WP:AFD. Also I looked at Talk:Interstate 49 in Arkansas and it did not appear there was consensus to merge Interstate 540 (Arkansas) into that article.

CI4 = carbon tetraiodide[edit]

Chemists call this stuff carbon tetraiodide, that is the reason the article was so entitled. There probably are rules of grammar that argue that chemists should spell things differently, I understand. A search of our databases will reveal that carbon tetriodide is not used by chemists or anyone for that matter. If you think that this or other articles should be renamed and you are not a chemist, it would be a good idea to leave a note on the Talk page or something like that. --Smokefoot (talk) 17:29, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

Raffi Albums[edit]

You make an excellent point, that album does seem no different to the rest. Which means that they should all be redirected, almost none of the Raffi album articles have any real content. I will be redirecting most of them, please do not restore them unless you intend to bring them in line with WP:NALBUMS, through the use of reliable 3rd party references and more content that just a track list and some trivia--Jac16888 Talk 14:29, 1 September 2014 (UTC)


{{not a forum}} is the template you might use. At present I'm hoping that the present BLP template, ANI discussion, and hatting of various off-topic threads will work.

Wikipedia:Gender identity[edit]

Be honest do you think that this essay is written fairly and without bias? Large portions were edited by User:Sportfan5000 a now indef blocked sock puppet as well as this stemming from the Chelsea/Bradley article debate. Don't get me wrong I think that we need an essay on how to deal with trans articles but it would be nice to start from scratch or rework the essay a lot so that it does not give the impression of a WP:COI. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 01:15, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

Would you consider amending your nomination to base it more around the page view stats mentioned in the first comment? I realize that they are discussed later on, but many people do just seem to jump to a !vote by reading only the nomination, and therefore we end up with opposes that don't take into account the more solid and most significant fact.--Yaksar (let's chat) 01:52, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

I guess that's an improvement.

IPv6 hextet[edit]

Due to your modification, the sentence

The exact term for 16 bits should be sexdecet, directly related to the term octet. Because it is harder to pronounce, the short form "hextet" is used.

doesn't make sense anymore. Please read the Internet Draft to see where the word hexadecatet comes from:

"hexadectet" is directly derived from IPv4's "octet", thus technically correct and convenient to get used to. Because it is harder to pronounce, the short form "hextet" is used.

It is also used to prevent confusion with sextet, which is used to e.g. indicate a music combo.

Please review your changes in the hextet page to make the sentence consistent again.

Number of ways to arrange n items so that...[edit]

Hey Georgia guy! Were you able to see how a(n)=(n-1)! for n>1. I had expected you to drop a note back on WP:RDMA#Number of ways to arrange n items so that... indicating whether or not you understood how to do the computation. Note that besides making an appeal to Sterling numbers as described at the end of Permutation#Cycle notation, you can also directly compute the number of possible cyclic derangements of n objects using standards combinatoric methods. -- ToE 18:21, 4 June 2015 (UTC)

August 2015[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Transition of Caitlyn Jenner. 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. -- WV 00:22, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

Ascherf and gender comments[edit]

Georgia guy, the comments on WT:MoS clearly matter a lot to you, but Ascherf is probably a kid. This is probably some teenager who just doesn't know what's what. Say the word and I'll take the chat to his or her talk page so you don't have to have it shoved in your face when you're trying to deal with MoS issues, but this is one way to get opinions like this off Wikipedia (not to mention the planet) without banning them.

So far revisiting MOS:IDENTITY is status quo[edit]

I wouldn't worry too much. The first thread is probably going to end with "no consensus," which means the status quo stays in place.

I think I might need a character witness. RGloucester started a thread complaining about Dicklyon and myself over at AE.

Planck Temperature[edit]

Hello. The Planck temperature is not defined as the largest possible measurable temperature, nor is the Planck length and the Planck time defined as the smallest measurable units. The Planck unit system is based on 5 universal constants and the rest of the units are simply derived from these definitions. Most of them have no obvious physical significance other than making calculations easier by removing the need for constants. In some (but not all) cases, the Planck units represent a scale where quantum mechanical effects are expected to overtake the classical physics and what happens at these scales are hard to predict. More info:,,

As your entire addition is completely incorrect and misleading I decided to revert it. There is not much to explain in terms of the removal, as the definitions of Planck length and Planck time are given on their respective pages and is not controversial at all. — Preceding unsigned comment added by MatsT (talkcontribs) 20:25, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

Can you explain that the Planck units are not the smallest possible units of length and time?? Feel free to give me an example of a real-world use of a smaller unit in whatever way you can.
There no real-world uses of lengths anywhere near the scale of the Planck length, so I can not. From the page on Planck length:
"There is currently no proven physical significance of the Planck length; it is, however, a topic of theoretical research. Since the Planck length is so many orders of magnitude smaller than any current instrument could possibly measure, there is no way of examining it directly. According to the generalized uncertainty principle (a concept from speculative models of quantum gravity), the Planck length is, in principle, within a factor of 10, the shortest measurable length – and no theoretically known improvement in measurement instruments could change that."
This is not what we are talking about or what your addition claimed though. It claims that the Planck length is defined as the smallest possible unit which is false. It's defined as:
where is the speed of light in a vacuum, G is the gravitational constant, and ħ is the reduced Planck constant.
See here for some additional discussion of the Planck length: MatsT (talk) 21:11, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
