Effects units merge[edit]

How is it going with the merge, in december(!) you said youd go ahead with it, yet its not in your TODO list... Martijn Hoekstra 18:54, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

Oops. I guess I just forgot about it already... I'll put it in TODO soon and would try to start things rolling soon... GreyCat 06:03, 13 April 2006 (UTC)

hey GreyCat[edit]

I've noticed your username at Guitar and I've checked your contribs a little bit... I think we can help each other to improve Guitar, what do you think? +MATIA 13:06, 9 December 2005 (UTC)

fretless[edit]

as you can read in [1], until 1976 when Erkan Ogur did it, classical guitar (spanish guitar let's say) wasn't modified to be fretless. Many mainly acoustic and base guitars, also electro guitars, were unfretted by that time for sure. But not the classical guitar, until 1976. You can see that in the above link although it is not specifically defined there which is the type of guitar Erkan Ogur modified. But until we reach a consensus, I have deleted those entries you pointed as not peoperly argued.

String gauges[edit]

Your table of gauges in the Strings (music) article is missing a bunch of values. Could you fill these in? I don't have access to this information.

By the way, where did you get this information? Just curious.

One more question: you say that string gauges are "traditionally" measured in thousandths of an inch. I know this is true here (the U.S.), but is it also true in the UK and other British-speaking places? --ILike2BeAnonymous 01:25, 29 January 2006 (UTC)

Superstrat[edit]

Sorry about that. I'd been meaning to put in a 'Disadvantages' column, but it seems to have slipped my mind. I restored the original column and added the new one; you might want to take a look. Cheers! Deltabeignet 22:03, 7 February 2006 (UTC)

'Suicides 'Category[edit]

Hello,

I noticed that you deleted the general Category of 'Suicides' from the Peyo Yavorov Article.
If a researcher is collecting data on 'suicide', it is my understanding that the general Category of 'Suicides' is there if they want a list of all persons who have committed suicide. The subcategories by occupation are for those researchers who want only persons of that occupation who committed suicide.

Regards,

Michael David 00:15, 30 March 2006 (UTC)

Thank you. I do understand how a large, general category such as 'Suicides' could become unmanageable (it would be somewhat like having the Category, 'People'). I'm still learning some of the basic mechanics of Wikipedia, and I got a tip from another Community Member: to access the 'List of Suicides' option. I will add the Main Category 'Suicides' only when the specific person does not fit into an existing occuptional subcategory.
Be healthy,
Michael David 16:19, 30 March 2006 (UTC)

I've gotten input from some others on the Suicides Talk Page. Take a look if you already haven't. I would like to add 'Drug-related suicides' as a Subcategory of 'Suicides'. Perhaps we can start to make the 'Suicides' Category more manageable, accessible and user friendly. I look forward to working with you on this.

Be healthy,

Michael David 00:41, 31 March 2006 (UTC)

Firearm suicides[edit]

Hello,

I like to idea of a subcategory 'Firearm suicides'. Another area to consider is 'Drug-related deaths'. Perhaps this could be divided into 'Drug-related suicides' and 'Accidental Drug-related deaths'.
I have to be careful here. I could easily become obsessed with creating lists and categories. After all, if you have glanced at my User Page, my work is in psychotherapy; which is, after all, trying to bring order to chaos.
Be healthy,
Michael David 18:46, 30 March 2006 (UTC)

Yukata Taniyama[edit]

I reverted your edit in Yukata Taniyama because he is not a scientist - he is not a mathematician. I don't think you could make an argument relating his work to science because his work was in a branch in number theory with no application in cryptography or computer science. Mathematics has applications in science but it is not a science - any mathematician will emphatically make that distinction. Anyway, just an explanation. DrIdiot 22:09, 30 March 2006 (UTC)

That's cool, I didn't know that. Anyway, thanks. DrIdiot 19:48, 1 April 2006 (UTC)

Sound synthesis types[edit]

Hi!

I think you added the {Sound synthesis types} category to Phase distortion synthesis, right?

Thats just fine :)

What I wonder is, where is the definition of that category? It includes synthesis types that do not have corresponding articles, no commercial implementations and hardly even a mention on the entire interweb ...

I would like to "fix" that, but unfortunately my searching abilities only leads to other articles including the category/template ... Do You have any ideas where to look?

Ibanez Universe photo[edit]

Hey there, I'm creating an article about Ibanez JEM right now. My question is, where did you get a permission to upload the image, as I really want to upload the image of the JEM. Thanks - Imoeng 11:10, 28 July 2006 (UTC)

In fact, there's already an uploaded image of JEM in wikipedia: Image:JEM7VWH.jpg. As infoboxes around this pictures cite, these are taken without explicit permission from product promotional images published on Ibanez's site. In absence of free alternative, it's better than nothing, though you can't put this stuff in wiki commons :( --GreyCat 11:21, 28 July 2006 (UTC)

WikiProject[edit]

Hey again, thanks for fixing the Ibanez JEM article.. So I see you like music and guitar as well as I do. Why don't we get together and make a WikiProject for guitars and other instuments? If you have time, please see [this] and tell me what you think. Thanks -- Imoeng 11:19, 30 July 2006 (UTC)

It's already Portal:Guitar and Wikipedia:WikiProject Guitarists and even some kind of empty page Wikipedia:WikiProject Guitar out there, but it's all kind of stagnant, with no real plans, clear targets, progress, etc. I'm digging on and taking care of most Category:Guitar articles since my coming to Wikipedia, but, sadly, it's a huge amount of work and barely anything can organize things well. May be we could establish a clear plan in Portal:Guitar and gather more than 2 of us there, so that the thing won't come to be another ambitious, but stagnant project? --GreyCat 12:50, 30 July 2006 (UTC)
Its just a plan for the project, its not a WikiProject yet, that is why it is so simple, as Wikipedia has suggested. You are in WikiProject Guitarist aren't you? Aguerriero has said we can combine the guitar specifications project and the guitarist project, (see the talk page). Imoeng 01:29, 3 August 2006 (UTC)

Sample uuencode table license[edit]

Hi there. I noticed this beautifully illustrative table you added to the uuencode article:

Original characters C a t
Original ASCII, decimal 67 97 116
ASCII, binary 0 1 0 0 0 0 1 1 0 1 1 0 0 0 0 1 0 1 1 1 0 1 0 0
New decimal values 16 54 5 52
+32 48 86 37 84
Uuencoded characters 0 V % T

This evidently involved a fair amount of effort. I have a page on another wiki which discusses an implementation of uuencode which this table would be very useful in illustrating, but the license on this wiki does not permit GFDL material. Could I persuade you to release your table under either the MIT license or public domain, and to similarly release your license statement for posting there? Thanks. Deco 02:51, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

Sure, no problem. Shall I write something somewhere or just writing here that this table is explicitly released in public domain will do? --GreyCat 06:43, 7 September 2006 (UTC)
That's good, thanks a lot. :-) Deco 06:44, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

#!/bin/cat Shebang Quine "Illegal?"[edit]

FYI - There's some discussion on the Talk for Shebang (Unix) on the comment (apparently yours) that a quine is "illegal". The posters "didn't know how to get your attention" on this.

wikEd[edit]

The wikEdlogo

Hi, I have seen that you are using the Cacycle editor extension. This program is no longer actively maintained in favor of its much more powerful successor wikEd.

wikEd has all the functionality of the old editor plus:• syntax highlighting • nifty image buttons • morefixing buttons • paste formatted text from Word or web pages• convert the formatted text into wikicode • adjustthe font size • and much, much more.

Switching to wikEd is easy, check the detailed installation description on its project homepage. Usually it is as simple as changing every occurrence of editor.js into wikEd.js on your User:YourUsername/monobook.js page.

Guitar pick[edit]

Loudspeaker peer review request[edit]

I've requested the article Loudspeaker to have peer review. I noticed it was pretty good and might deserve a GA status. If you can take a look at it too and help evaluate and improve it's quality, that would be great. The peer review tag can be found on the article's talk page. --Davidkazuhiro 10:26, 19 February 2007 (UTC)

Category:SQL Statements Cfr[edit]

I've requested a rename on the SQL Statements category. It seems to have expanded to include other SQL keywords which are not SQL Statements per the ISO/IEC 9075-n:2003 standards. Several of the keywords represented are SQL clauses (ORDER BY, WHERE, etc.) and other non-statement keywords like NULL. I expect the list will eventually be expanded to include SQL expressions like CASE and possibly SQL standard functions like AVG, SUM, and COALESCE. I propose changing the name to SQL Keywords to more accurately reflect the content of the category. The entry on the discussion page is at Categories for discussion:SQL statements. Thanks.

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Ibanez UV777P BK.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Ibanez UV777P BK.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not.

Replaceable fair use Image:Roland_GK-3.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Roland_GK-3.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original Replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, fair use media which could be replaced by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if not used in an article), per our Fair Use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. – Quadell (talk) (random) 14:53, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

Measuring pick thickness with calipers[edit]

Man, don't just revert, try and talk about things first...

I had put an entry on Guitar Pick talk page a week ago, but you seem to have overlooked it. Your picture is nice to illustrade the way calipers work, but the do not serve any real function regarding picks. Do you want to show that a 2mm pick is exactly 2mm thick? What a surprise! Seriously, the picture does not help the article. Also, it is far from perfect in that it shows someone measuring that pick just somewhere and not at its thickest point. What's the deal with that?

Deletion of Djay (software)[edit]

Hi, I noticed your proposal to delete Djay (software). I am one of the contributors to the article, and while I agree that the article is not well-written, I still think of the software as notable and I wanted to see if you had any comments on how to establish its notability. I first read about the software in this Digg front-page article and I have since seen a number of reviews, e.g. by Macworld, MacUser, Skratchworx and iDJ Magazine. I read the Wikipedia articles on notability, but I'm still not quite sure on how to go about establishing notability. Although I don't have much experience in writing articles, I will also try to rephrase the article to be less of an advertisement.

Question about re-using a file[edit]

Hello, GreyCat. I have made a modified version of commons:File:Fretboard inlays.svg that shows the coverage of various partial capos. Since you likely know much more about Commons than I do, how would I go about uploading it? Eman235/talk 00:22, 15 December 2015 (UTC)

Basically, it's straightforward: you go to commons:Special:UploadWizard and follow the steps proposed there. When asked for licensing, you reference the original file like you did here and describe it as a derivative work. Feel free to contact me if you'll need any help or encounter any obstacles. --GreyCat (talk) 06:28, 15 December 2015 (UTC)
Well, here it is -- tell me what you think, and if I've done anything wrong. Eman235/talk 13:26, 15 December 2015 (UTC)
Looks good to me :) Three fairly minor notes:
  1. please specify yourself in "Author: " fields — as it's your creation, not mine;
  2. please drop in a link to original file (i.e. commons:File:Fretboard inlays.svg) somewhere, for example, in the description, something like "(based on File:Fretboard inlays.svg)"
  3. maybe you could opt to use more contrast — probably white capos on dark brown fretboard would look better than black capos on dark brown. --GreyCat (talk) 13:48, 15 December 2015 (UTC)
Did the first two. I was already thinking of altering the file, since the text looks a bit small (see here for an example). I'll get to it soon. Eman235/talk 13:54, 15 December 2015 (UTC)
I've took a closer look at the topic and I might a few other suggestions. I don't see much point in using fretboard inlays scheme file here, as fretboard inlays file illustrates absolute positions which are important for determining locations on fretboard, but for illustrating partial capos you don't really need neither absolute nor relative positions on the fretboard. Basically, the only thing you need is a diagram of one individual fret, not the whole fretboard — that's extra information and it might be confusing (for example, an ignorant beginner might think that "Woody's G-Band" can be only applied on frets 1 and 2, "Woody's G-Band Mk II" can be used on frets 3 and 4, etc). Given that you need just 1 fret for illustration, you don't have to arrange them all vertically, you can arrange them in 2 or 3 columns for readability, or it might look even better in individual files, represented in <gallery>...</gallery> wiki formatting. That automatically might some text readability problem too. --GreyCat (talk) 09:00, 16 December 2015 (UTC)
Good point. The "capos up the neck" diagram really doesn't make all that much sense when I think about it, considering the six-string capo covering everything else at the twelfth fret. I will be back, with new, improved capo diagrams. Face-smile.svg Eman235/talk 13:49, 16 December 2015 (UTC)
Given that it's a diagram, I'd rather stick to standard chord-like diagrams like Accord guitare diagramme la mineur.svg — just make sure that they're in SVG. I've took a chance to browse through all the guitar chord diagrams in commons::Category:Guitar chords — it's such a mess :( I'm almost feeling tempted to write a quick script that will generate pure chord SVG images by request... Do you think that would be a good idea — something simple like a single HTML + JavaScript page that will generate chord images? --GreyCat (talk) 16:20, 16 December 2015 (UTC)
That would be great, though I'm not sure what sort of "page" you're talking about. Eman235/talk 16:28, 16 December 2015 (UTC)
