History of photography[edit]

Yes, you're right. (Sorry for the delay in answering; I hadn't even noticed that the category existed.) -- Hoary (talk) 23:41, 18 November 2010 (UTC)


Whoo, all those questions! I'll try to answer them, but I may have to spread out the work. If I avoid comment on something, it may be because for one reason or another (eg I have no opinion) I'd prefer not to comment, or it could be that I'll comment later. (Isn't WP mysterious?) So try to be patient. -- Hoary (talk) 12:51, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

Vernacular photography[edit]

A word in defense of vernacular photography. Yes of course poppycock has been written to promote it, but then whatever your taste in photography I'm sure that dreary articles written in the most awful MFA-speak (citing French philosophasters, etc) have been devoted to it or something like it.

At its discerningly collected best, vernacular photography (or whatever you prefer to call it) can be superb. I particularly recommend Jeffrey Fraenkel's The Book of Shadows: the RRP is high and the online oligopolists charge a lot, but remaindered copies turn up. And just today I was looking through a copy of a second good book: Now Is Then: Snapshots from the Maresca Collection. -- Hoary (talk) 13:44, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being 'minor'. The only thing that's changed is that you will no longer have them marked as minor by default.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. If you are familiar with the contents of WP:MINOR, and believe that it is still beneficial to the encyclopedia to have all your edits marked as such by default, then this discussion will give you the details you need to continue with this functionality indefinitely. If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 17:08, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

Stephenson gear help[edit]

Hi Jim. Thanks for your help with the Stephenson gear. Please see my response to some of your items at the Stephenson valve gear talk page. I look forward to your editing on related topics. Your non-Stephenson/mechanical editing is already beyond mine. I'm relatively new at Wikipedia editing. Please ask me regarding any mechanical questions at my talk page. Best, Doug..

Your recent edits[edit]

Information icon Hello and welcome to Wikipedia. When you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion (but never when editing articles), please be sure to sign your posts. There are two ways to do this. Either:

  1. Add four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment; or
  2. With the cursor positioned at the end of your comment, click on the signature button (Insert-signature.png or Button sig.png) located above the edit window.

This will automatically insert a signature with your username or IP address and the time you posted the comment. This information is necessary to allow other editors to easily see who wrote what and when.

Thank you. --SineBot (talk) 23:07, 1 April 2017 (UTC)
