Your invitation to participate in a Wikimedia-approved survey in online behavior.[edit]

Hello, my name is Michael Tsikerdekis[1][2], currently involved as a student in full time academic research at Masaryk University. I am writing to you to kindly invite you to participate in an online survey about interface and online collaboration on Wikipedia. The survey has been reviewed and approved by the Wikimedia Foundation Research Committee.

I am contacting you because you were randomly selected from a list of active editors. The survey should take about 7 to 10 minutes to complete, and it is very straightforward.

Wikipedia is an open project by nature. Let’s create new knowledge for everyone! :-)

To take part in the survey please follow the link: (HTTPS).

Best Regards, --Michael Tsikerdekis (talk) 12:04, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

PS: The results from the research will become available online for everyone and will be published in an open access journal.

UPDATE: This is the second and final notification for participating in this study. Your help is essential for having concrete results and knowledge that we all can share. I would like to thank you for your time and as always for any questions, comments or ideas do not hesitate to contact me. --Michael Tsikerdekis (talk) 08:52, 2 February 2012 (UTC)

Hello. With regards to this edit, can you tell me what a "horse-bell" is? Regards – ὁ οἶστρος (talk) 16:36, 21 May 2012 (UTC)

Hi ὁ οἶστρος,
Thanks for the message! I apologize for the late reply. To answer your question, I must admit I have no idea what "horse bells" are, so I left the wording intact. My source was p. 161 of Lynette Sheridan Burns' Understanding Journalism (Thousand Oaks, CA: Sage Publications, 2002). Here's an excerpt

If they were looking for him and found his boat, they’d go up the Victoria River, not the Fitzmaurice. But they came. Ansell heard the sound of horse bells floating down the river and paddled towards it. He hitched the boat and ran along the horse tracks. Incredibly, he saw a man on a horse. He told the story of their meeting.

I considered leaving the "horse bells" out, but the excerpt seems to imply they played an important part in Ansell's rescue. Regards, Life is like a box of chocolates (talk) 04:47, 27 June 2012 (UTC)
(I hope it's OK that I moved your above reply here, as in isolation on my talk page it doesn't make sense.)
Hey, thanks for your sourced answer. I was just wondering whether this was an Aussie thing or one of those cases where everyone else knows what it's about as a matter of course while I, for whatever reason, just don't have a clue...

Bird composite[edit]

If you are amenable, I would suggest adding this passerine image

instead of one of the water birds, and a better owl image. μηδείς (talk) 02:09, 25 February 2013 (UTC)

My Opinion[edit]

Hi how are you today? Um, I am really indifferent in regards to whether having multiple images or single images. I feel when you have a clade that is pretty diverse, I feel that it's okay to post two pictures, just to give the idea of things.--4444hhhh (talk) 18:57, 25 February 2013 (UTC)
