File:Reion diagram.jpg needs authorship information.[edit]

Dear uploader:

The media file you uploaded as File:Reion diagram.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|James McBride}} will produce an appropriate expansion,

or the {{own}} template..

If you have any questions please see Help:Image page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 14:54, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for Lockman Hole edits![edit]

I hope my further edits didn't introduce any more issues. Can we get rid of the "needs attention from an expert on the subject" template now? With a bit more work we may be able to get rid of "too technical" also :) ★NealMcB★ (talk) 15:28, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for your response - I removed the expert template. I still think the references to N(HI) and column density need some clarification for non-experts, both in terms of what that means, and in terms of how the values compare to "diffuse" values and typical values elsewhere. Can you have a go at that? ★NealMcB★ (talk) 17:08, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

GAN on hold[edit]

James, in order to successfully put a review on hold, you have to go to that article's Talk page and edit the GA Nominee template there. When you edit WP:GAN directly, in contravention of the "on hold" instructions near the top of the GAN page, the GA bot will look at the article's Talk page for the official "GA nominee" template, and use the information there in preference to any direct edits you may have made to WP:GAN. This will shortly be happening if it hasn't already; you'll want to edit Talk:Celestial spheres so it says "onhold" rather than "onreview" to make sure the change sticks.

GA Review -- Celestial spheres[edit]


I've come pretty close to wrapping up the revisions to Celestial spheres. Would you take another look at it to see what I've missed.

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. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
