Evolva in Biopunk[edit]

why nobody mentioned evolva? (Idot (talk) 01:07, 3 July 2008 (UTC))

Do you have a reliable source (author stated, review, article - no blogs) that notes Evolva as being "biopunk"? Your personal opinion or simple obviousness doesn't count. --Loremaster (talk) 02:05, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

False vandalism accusations[edit]

Please do not come to my talk page using template messages about "vandalism" when I was removing non-notable trivia from an article following Wikipedia policy. See WP:NOT and WP:ENC if you still do not understand. DreamGuy (talk) 14:38, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

  • it is not false, as it is not a trivia (Idot (talk) 03:28, 21 June 2009 (UTC))
I see you rushed off to try to report me for vandalism, where the report was closed by an admin as not being vandalism. Therefore the accusation is false, as I told you. Please take the time to actually read our vandalism policy before making such accusations. You also don't seem to understand what trivia is either. Please spend more time acquainting yourself with how Wikipedia work before trying to edit one. DreamGuy (talk) 18:24, 21 June 2009 (UTC)
One more time: Do not put bogus warnings on my talk page accusing me of vandalism when an admin has already told you that your accusation has no merit. Putting false warnings on pages is a form of WP:WIKIHOUNDING, which can get you blocked for disruption. This is your last warning. DreamGuy (talk) 02:18, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

I understand that you feel strongly[edit]

...but please do not make this kind of edit: [1]. Encyclopedia articles and edit summaries are not the right place for shouted statements of conviction. In fact, no page at Wikipedia is appropriate for that. Simply use the talk page to discuss the issue civilly with other editors, and then after resolution is reached there, update the article accordingly.

Thank you for understanding that communication is much more productive when it's done in the right context. If you have any questions about this, please let me know. -GTBacchus(talk) 03:44, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

  • In fact user:DreamGuy refuses to discuss anything :-( what I should do? (Idot (talk) 05:14, 21 June 2009 (UTC))
    • aha now he/she ready to discuss! thanks a lot! :-) I'll participate in the discussion as soon as I have time (now unfortunatelly I'm in hurry) Idot (talk) 05:19, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

It was already discussed on that talk page, which you ignored by putting the trivia back into the article. On top of which, removing triia is a standard procedure on Wikipedia and one which normally does not need to be discussed. Once you were reverted you are the one who needs to get consensus to put the info there, not the other way around. DreamGuy (talk) 18:20, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

you removed it few times without ANY discussion! it was discussion Ian.thomson only, not with you! when I wrote in your page that before deletion a section you should discuss it, you just deleted from your page! (Idot (talk) 01:00, 22 June 2009 (UTC))
That's true, in kind of a limited way. Once there's a dispute, everyone needs to discuss to obtain resolution, and the version in place while the discussion goes on really doesn't matter. A trivia section is not like a BLP violation, and nobody is hurt by its floating around for a day or two. Once it's clear there's a dispute going on, all reverts count as edit warring, no matter what "side" you're on. -GTBacchus(talk) 23:19, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} 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 {{dated prod}} will stop the Proposed Deletion process, but other deletion processes exist.

Korean Cuisine[edit]

Hi I noticed you addition to this article. Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure someone is going to challenge for verifiability. Can you find a news article that mentions the Korean salad even in it's in Russian? I can help you add that to the article if you can provide a reference. Thanks.Melonbarmonster2 (talk) 02:22, 31 July 2010 (UTC)

  • I think you'd better look a section about cuisine in koryo-saram artilce. And this salad is the most well known korean dish in the former Soviet Union, and sold everywere as korean salad. Or search for "корейский салат" OR "корейская морковь" OR "морковь по-корейски" in google. E.g. [2] gives http://www.korsalat.ru/ whcih has lots of recpies of "Морковь по-корейски" (Idot (talk) 16:47, 31 July 2010 (UTC))

TOTD[edit]

Tip of the day...


Please summarize your work using the Edit summary box

If you make anything other than a minor edit to an article, it helps others if you fill in the edit summary. Edit summaries are visible in the page history, watchlists, and on Recent changes, so they help other users keep track of what is happening to a page.

If you use section editing, the summary box is filled in with the section heading by default (in gray text), which you can follow with more detail. You also can put links to articles in the edit summary. Just put double brackets around [[the article title]] like you would normally. The summary is limited to 255 characters, so many people use common abbreviations, such as sp for correcting spelling mistakes, rm for remove, ce for copy-edit, etc.

Re: discussion page[edit]

Continued flouting of wp:ES#Always provide an edit summary[edit]

One such is wp:ES#Always provide an edit summary. Please adhere to it, or state why the consensus doesn't apply in your case. Very happy to discuss.

Chronology of 4X video games[edit]

Hi, as stated on the page the entries should be reliably sourced. The ones with Wikipedia entries will generally have sourcing on their pages however as the ones that don't have no references on this list they fall foul of WP:RELIABLE so shouldn't be included. Rescendent (talk) 22:27, 16 July 2011 (UTC)

now I see your point, but you'd better add {{fact}} to red links rather than delete 'em (Idot (talk) 01:27, 17 July 2011 (UTC))

Hey there[edit]

You probably shouldn't copy and paste the thread from the archive. I don't think it's standard practice. Biosthmors (talk) 12:37, 6 August 2013 (UTC)

how I cold else prevent archiving the ongoing discussion? (Idot (talk) 13:59, 6 August 2013 (UTC))
I can help. You could just start a new thread and go to the archives and find a WP:diff of our previous discussion to permanently link to for discussion purposes. For example, I went to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Jimbo_Wales/Archive_139 and then "View history" and to that version to permanently link to the section of interest here. So with a permanent link to a section in the archive, you could use it as a point of reference but start a new discussion thread from where it left off. Best regards.

Thank! I'll try! (Idot (talk) 14:25, 6 August 2013 (UTC))

Duplicate discussions[edit]

Please do not post the same message (or similar messages) at different locations because it fragments discussions. I have closed the discussions at WP:VPM and WP:VPP with the suggestion that any further discussion should be at User talk:Jimbo Wales. Johnuniq (talk) 08:12, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

Soft redirect[edit]

Just a suggestion but instead of the soft redirect at the top of this page, you can make it an interwiki link so that it shows up under languages there. In other words, I'd put ru:Обсуждение участника:Idot at the top of the page. A soft redirect makes it seem like we should only post on the Russian version and not here. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 18:44, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

it means that I visit English wikipedia usually not every day, but I visit every day Russian wikipedia, so if you write me something here, I'm not sure that I get to know about here (unless the bot informs me) Idot (talk) 19:00, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

You seem to take issue with solar collectors and wind power. So far as I know Wikipedia has nothing to do with it. Wikipedia is an encyclopedia; we are not a method for you to complain about a public policy. If you have an issue with one of the articles on Wikipedia about those subjects then raise it on the talk pages for those articles.
