Welcome to Wikipedia!

Hello InverseHypercube/Archive 1, welcome to Wikipedia!

I noticed nobody had said hi yet... Hi!

If you feel a change is needed, feel free to make it yourself! Wikipedia is a wiki, so anyone (yourself included) can edit any article by following the Edit this page link. Wikipedia convention is to be bold and not be afraid of making mistakes. If you're not sure how editing works, have a look at How to edit a page, or try out the Sandbox to test your editing skills.

You might like some of these links and tips:

If, for some reason, you are unable to fix a problem yourself, feel free to ask someone else to do it. If you are stuck, and looking for help, please come to the Wikipedia Boot Camp, where experienced Wikipedians can answer any queries you have! Or, you can just type {{helpme}} on your user page, and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Wikipedia has a vibrant community of contributors who have a wide range of skills and specialties, and many of them would be glad to help. As well as the wiki community pages there are IRC Channels, where you are more than welcome to ask for assistance.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask me on my talk page. Thanks and happy editing, -- Alf melmac 22:01, 4 February 2006 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:Gold_pan.gif

Thanks for uploading Image:Gold_pan.gif. However, the image may soon be deleted unless we can determine the copyright holder and copyright status. The Wikimedia Foundation is very careful about the images included in Wikipedia because of copyright law (see Wikipedia's Copyright policy).

The copyright holder is usually the creator, the creator's employer, or the last person who was transferred ownership rights. Copyright information on images is signified using copyright templates. The three basic license types on Wikipedia are open content, public domain, and fair use. Find the appropriate template in Wikipedia:Image copyright tags and place it on the image page like this: {{TemplateName}}.

Please signify the copyright information on any other images you have uploaded or will upload. Remember that images without this important information can be deleted by an administrator. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me or ask for help at Wikipedia talk:Image copyright tags. Thank you. -- Carnildo 10:22, 6 February 2006 (UTC)

The use of a time cover on Kennewick Man violates wikipedia's fair use policy. You also must provide a fair use rationale for all FU images. Please review WP:FU. Matt 09:07, 18 March 2006 (UTC)

The All New Undersea Monkeys

I have added a "{{prod}}" template to the article The All New Undersea Monkeys, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but I don't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and I've explained why in the deletion notice (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia, or, if you disagree with the notice, discuss the issues at its talk page. Removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, but the article may still be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached, or if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria. Alvestrand 21:09, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

Please refrain from creating inappropriate pages such as The All New Undersea Monkeys. It is considered vandalism. If you would like to experiment, use the sandbox. See Wikipedia:Verifiability. NawlinWiki 20:36, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

License tagging for Image:Haietlik.jpg

Thanks for uploading Image:Haietlik.jpg. Wikipedia gets thousands of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

This is an automated notice by OrphanBot. If you need help on selecting a tag to use, or in adding the tag to the image description, feel free to post a message at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. 21:06, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

Unspecified source for Image:Banfflongnosedace.jpg

Thanks for uploading Image:Banfflongnosedace.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, then you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, then their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 13:04, 7 August 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. MER-C 13:04, 7 August 2007 (UTC)

Ya'ad (Political Party

Hi, you blanked the above page, after moving the article to Ya'ad (Political Party) (with a closing bracket). I've tagged the blank page with the incorrect title as a candidate for deletion, hope this is OK. Cheers, Davidprior 20:46, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

Also, just to let you know, anything you put in brackets should not be capitalised (thus I have moved it to Ya'ad (political party). I have also moved Yishuv Ya'ad to Ya'ad (moshav) as Yishuv is a term used in English for pre-1948 settlements. Number 57 08:25, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
In addition, when you move pages, please fix all the links that point to that page (you can tell by clicking on What links here on the left hand side of the screen. When you moved Ya'ad (political party), you left seven articles pointing at the wrong place. Thanks, Number 57 08:29, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

License tagging for File:Real programmers.png

Thanks for uploading File:Real programmers.png. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information; to add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 01:05, 3 December 2010 (UTC)

Purple sage (disambiguation)

Hi. I'm glad you've added some more topics known as "purple sage".

The reason Curtis Clark changed it from a dab page to a "set index page" is that dab pages aren't supposed to have references, according to Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style_(disambiguation_pages). However, set index pages are supposed to be about items in the same category, such as plants. So either way, we have to break the rules, and I don't care which rules we break. Other people might have a preference, though.

By the way, another rule for dab pages is not to have more than one link per entry. So for instance

Blatant pitch

IH, as a fellow Canadian, I hereby order you to join WP:WikiProject Canada. The messageboard always has some juicy controversies, and we're a bit understaffed. It's a great way to round up some bodies when you find a Canada-related article that needs work. The more eyes the better! The Interior (Talk) 06:35, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

Sure! I do edit/create Canada-related articles on occasion, although I can't promise to discuss much on the message board. InverseHypercube (talk) 06:50, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

Entropy article

Hello, I was wondering if the references are adequate.Bernhlav (talk) 10:26, 8 April 2011 (UTC)

Yes, they seem okay, but they don't follow the standard format. I can fix it when I put it into the article, but it seems another editor has challenged the information, or at least its presentation. I will wait until that is resolved. InverseHypercube 00:09, 9 April 2011 (UTC)
I'm afraid not acquainted with Wikipedia practices, but if an editor has challenged the information doesn't he have to say where and cite references showing the material is wrong? Except for "Count Iblis" no one has contributed to (or contested on) the talk page. As you can see there he has stopped responding. Are there ways of communicating other than the Discussion and home pages of the contributors? ThanksBernhlav (talk) 12:53, 13 April 2011 (UTC)
Wikipedia tries to maintain a high standard of accuracy, above all. I think an editor contesting it is enough reason to delay its inclusion until there is more discussion on this. I do not understand this topic too well, but I have asked for help on Wikiproject Physics. Hopefully your contributions can be included soon! InverseHypercube 22:03, 14 April 2011 (UTC)
Any news?Bernhlav (talk) 07:39, 23 April 2011 (UTC)
The discussion doesn't seem to suggest anything against your information, so I will be adding it promptly. InverseHypercube 07:48, 29 April 2011 (UTC)
The first part is in the article now. What do you think? InverseHypercube 07:19, 30 April 2011 (UTC)
Sorry for the delay in replying. It seems fine. There seems to be a general confusion between entropy as defined in terms of a probability distribution and entropy defined as the ratio of the heat absorbed and the temperature at which it is absorbed. To call one definition more fundamental than the other seems sterile. I have also added to the article on Brownian motion. I am still in doubt as to whether on can cite his own books. I'd be very appreciative if you could take a look at it. So far no one has commented on it, neither the article itself nor in the talk page. Isn't that strange?Bernhlav (talk) 07:53, 5 May 2011 (UTC)
Oh, I understand what you are saying now. The article does contain both definitions, though. Where does it imply one is more fundamental than the other?
You must be Dr. Bernard Lavenda? Thank you for contributing to Wikipedia; expert contribution is always valued, and I hope you remain as an editor for a long time to come. As for books one published, there is no specific policy on this, as far as I know. There is, however, a policy on self-published works (WP:SPS), but this would not apply here. Springer books are peer-reviewed, are they not? In any case, it would be considered a reliable source (as per WP:IRS). It has been only a few days since you added the Brownian motion information, so it's not surprising that nobody has commented yet. Besides, people will usually only comment when they dispute the information, so if it is accurate you shouldn't expect a response. Anyways, I will read it and give you my thoughts. Thanks again! InverseHypercube 01:07, 6 May 2011 (UTC)
Yes, you guessed right. I am still a little uncomfortable with adding and making changes on Wikipedia articles. If you go to the article on Brownian motion, you will see I have added Einstein's derivation of the diffusion coefficient. The following paragraph containing is incorrect and contradicts the derivation given above it. It should be deleted, as I have mentioned on the talk page, but no one responded. Also I would like to add a diagram illustrating dynamic equilibrium and two references: One to my Scientific American article, B. H. Lavenda, "Brownian Motion" Scientific American 252 (1985) 70-85, letter to the editor, ibid 253 (1986) 8, and another to B. H. Lavenda, "Nonequilibrium Statistical Thermodynamics" (Wiley-Interscience, Chichester, 1985) Chapter 2 ISBN 471 90670 0. If you think that this is not self-publicity the references I can add but I am at a loss on how to insert diagrams into the text. There are also other articles that need revision and I would be very grateful for any help you can give me. ThanksBernhlav (talk) 16:30, 6 May 2011 (UTC)
I would be happy to help with anything! For the Brownian motion article, do you mean that paragraph is blatantly wrong, or just out of context? What specifically is wrong about it?
I think those references would be fine. As for inserting diagrams, you first need to assure it is licensed under a one of the following: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Licensing#Well-known_licenses (or, if you own the copyright, you can release it yourself). You then upload it to Wikimedia Commons (http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Main_Page), and embed it in an article with the following syntax: [[File:Example.jpg|thumb|Caption]]. I will be happy to assist with any part of this process and with revising other articles. InverseHypercube 08:30, 10 May 2011 (UTC)
The statement:

"Specifically, Einstein predicted that Brownian motion of a particle in a fluid at a thermodynamic temperature T is characterised by a diffusion coefficient

   D = k_B T / b \,,

where kB is Boltzmann's constant and b is the linear drag constant of the particle (in the Stokes/low-Reynolds regime applicable for small particles).[2] As a consequence, the root mean square displacement in any direction after a time t is

   \sqrt{2Dt}.[2] "

is incorrect. The second equation does not follow from the first as "As a consequence" would lead one to believe. The relation between the mean square displacement and the diffusion coefficient does not follow from the first of the above equations, but, rather, from the second moment of the distribution (a Gaussian integral). It is, in fact, in contradiction with the preceding paragraph and should be deleted. The figures I had in mind were the decreasing bell-shaped curves, for increasing times, on page 21 (Fig. 2.2), and a sketch of Perrin's results on page 23 (Fig. 2.4) of "Nonequilibrium Statistical Thermodynamics". I hold the copyright to the book, but how do I release it? I'm not too sure on the procedure of inserting them. I can send you the scans as .jpg files? ThanksBernhlav (talk) 09:22, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

I removed the implication that the root mean square follows from the diffusion coefficient. Is the rest correct?
You can definitely send me the scans from the book, and I will upload them, giving the credit to you. I have sent you an e-mail to the address from your website. Are you sure, though, that the copyright does not belong to the publisher? If not, then you can release it under a "free" license; the three most commonly used at Wikipedia being http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/, http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/, and http://creativecommons.org/about/cc0; you can choose any of these. If you have the function (or data) that produces the bell-shaped curves you mention, I can graph it and potentially create a higher-resolution image than what is possible with a scan.
As you are probably aware, there is quite an extensive Wikipedia article on you (it must be strange to read your biography written by another person!). Maybe you could read through it and see if there are any errors? InverseHypercube 23:59, 11 May 2011 (UTC)

April 2011

Thank you for your contributions. Please remember to mark your edits, such as your recent edits to RPM Package Manager, as "minor" only if they truly are minor edits. In accordance with Help:Minor edit, a minor edit is one that the editor believes requires no review and could never be the subject of a dispute. Minor edits consist of things such as typographical corrections, formatting changes, or rearrangement of text without modification of content. Additionally, the reversion of clear-cut vandalism and test edits may be labeled "minor". Thank you. Oneiros (talk) 15:21, 17 April 2011 (UTC)

I didn't mark it as minor; perhaps you have me confused with someone else? InverseHypercube 21:43, 17 April 2011 (UTC)

{{Epistemology-stub}}

Greetings! I see you have recently created one or more new stub templates or categories. As it states at Wikipedia:Stub, at the top of most stub categories, and in many other places on Wikipedia, it is recommended that new stub types be proposed prior to creation at Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Proposals. This helps to reach consensus about whether the new stub type is already covered by existing stub types, whether it is named according to stub naming guidelines, whether it is otherwise correctly formatted, whether it reaches the standard threshold for creation of a new stub type, and whether it crosses existing stub type hierarchies. Your new stub type is currently listed at Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Discoveries, where comments are welcome as to any rationale for this stub type. Please, in future, consider proposing new stub types first at Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Proposals! Grutness...wha? 07:04, 23 May 2011 (UTC)

I've replied to your comments at WP:WSS/D, but - to cut a long story short - Stub-Class assessment and stub templates and categories are completely different things. Grutness...wha? 08:26, 23 May 2011 (UTC)

File:Vancouver riot kissing couple.jpg needs authorship information.

Dear uploader:

The media file you uploaded as File:Vancouver riot kissing couple.jpg appears to be missing information as to its authorship (and or source), or if you did provide such information, it is confusing for others trying to make use of the image.

It would be appreciated if you would consider updating the file description page, to make the authorship of the media clearer.

Although some images may not need author information in obvious cases, (such where an applicable source is provided),authorship information aids users of the image, and helps ensure that appropriate credit is given (a requirement of some licenses).

  • If you created this media yourself, please consider explicitly including your user name, for which:{{subst:usernameexpand|InverseHypercube/Archive 1}} will produce an appropriate expansion,
    or use the {{own}} template.
  • If this is an old image, for which the authorship is unknown or impossible to determine, please indicate this on the file description page.
If you have any questions please see Help:Image page. Thank you. feydey (talk) 09:22, 19 June 2011 (UTC)

History of cotton

Hello there. I just came across History of cotton and, frankly, I'm amazed the article didn't already exist. I just wanted to say well done on a (not-yet-officially) good article. LordVetinari 04:18, 22 June 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for the congratulations! I noticed the coverage was lacking, and it is a very interesting topic. InverseHypercube 04:28, 22 June 2011 (UTC)
Great quotation by Bertrand Russell on your user page, by the way. InverseHypercube 04:32, 22 June 2011 (UTC)
He's my hero (sort of) and the quote was particularly relevant when I was in high school. Anyway, well done again and I look forward to seeing the article reach FA status. LordVetinari 04:43, 22 June 2011 (UTC)
Would you happen to have any suggestions? I'd love to fix anything. InverseHypercube 04:53, 22 June 2011 (UTC)
I'm not familiar with FA criteria so can't offer much help there. However, I do think an infobox or navbox would help to fill in the gap to the right of the TOC. Unfortunately, I don't know offhand of any relevant infobox and suspect one may not exist. The same goes for a navbox. I suspect a navbox couldn't develop until Cotton has split into more articles. I'll work on it, though, and keep you posted. LordVetinari 05:51, 22 June 2011 (UTC)
Maybe Template:Agriculture would be appropriate? InverseHypercube 06:00, 22 June 2011 (UTC)
Appropriate, yes, but I'd only add it preliminarily. Seems too general. The navbar version, {{Agriculture footer}}, wouldn't intrude, though. For a navbox, however, I'm thinking of one specifically for cotton-related articles or some classification level immediately above it (fibres?). In the meantime, I've added that navbar. LordVetinari 07:55, 22 June 2011 (UTC)
Ah. I'll see what I can do about creating a cotton-related template. There are definitely enough articles on the subject, and it is a significant topic. InverseHypercube 20:55, 22 June 2011 (UTC)
I added a sidebar. InverseHypercube 23:50, 22 June 2011 (UTC)
Damn it. You beat me to it. LOL. Mine's nowhere near finished yet, though and I'm already looking at alternatives. Yours looks good, though, so forgive me if I nick some of your ideas. LordVetinari 03:22, 23 June 2011 (UTC)
No problem. It is a wiki after all. InverseHypercube 03:26, 23 June 2011 (UTC)

Your move from planking (fad) to Planking (meme)

Hi. You probably weren't aware of this, but there was a lengthy discussion about moving the page on the talk page. The debate centred around fad vs. activity, so I find the sudden move to meme perhaps a bit too bold. There's no point in moving the page (to any title) until consensus has been established, so it would be great if you put in your opinion on the talk page. Thanks. Puchiko (Talk-email) 18:44, 7 August 2011 (UTC)

This is correct and you shouldn't have moved the page. If you're able to, please revert this. If you're not an admin you'll need to get an admin to do this for you, I think, which you can do a WP:AN. After that you can place a {{template:requested move}} on the talk page. Thanking you in advance, Herostratus (talk) 21:41, 7 August 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, I did not see the discussion. I will have it moved back. InverseHypercube 21:59, 7 August 2011 (UTC)
Done. Thanks for notifying me. InverseHypercube 22:02, 7 August 2011 (UTC)

Coulombs constant

In Coulomb's law you did this edit one month ago:

03:17, 1 August 2011 InverseHypercube (talk | contribs) (16,212 bytes) (→Basic equation: Added all digits of Coulomb's  constant) (undo) 

Where did you got that decimals? They are wrong. c=299792458 m/s (exact). c²=89875517873681764 (exact) and that are the only digits. Fabbe (talk)"

Yes, you are right. I don't know what I was thinking. InverseHypercube 18:29, 2 September 2011 (UTC)

Just wanted to ask

Why have you removed so many userboxes from your page? I think your user page looks much better and more insightful with those userboxes :) I somehow stumbled on your user page and i found that we share a lot of(almost all) interests,beliefs and software usage and then i randomly visit your user page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Alaukikyo (talkcontribs) 14:42, 16 September 2011 Alaukikyo (talk) 14:44, 16 September 2011 (UTC)

Really? I didn't think anyone was interested; I just removed them because they were cluttering up my page. I'll add them back. InverseHypercube 09:44, 17 September 2011 (UTC)
