ArbCom Elections 2016: Voting now open![edit]

Scale of justice 2.svg Hello, Mark viking. Voting in the 2016 Arbitration Committee elections is open from Monday, 00:00, 21 November through Sunday, 23:59, 4 December to all unblocked users who have registered an account before Wednesday, 00:00, 28 October 2016 and have made at least 150 mainspace edits before Sunday, 00:00, 1 November 2016.

The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to impose binding solutions to disputes between editors, primarily for serious conduct disputes the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the authority 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 in the 2016 election, please review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 22:08, 21 November 2016 (UTC)

Hi Mark!

I have plans (yet somewhat vague, especially when it comes to a time table) to try to bring Representation theory of the Lorentz group to GA-status. Before nominating it, I'd like to hear some opinion from others, with different viewpoints than mine (that of an amateur math/physics nerd). If you have some time to spare, I'd surely like to hear your opinion on whether it is worthwhile, and if so, what kind of improvements are the most necessary ones.

Most of the present version is mostly written by me. The major exceptions are the sections on the general theory in the infinite-dimensional case. The article is fairly long, and I realize that you are busy IRL, but if you could parse it through and have a closer look at a section or two, I'd highly appreciate it.

Most of my editing at WP aims (besides teaching myself the stuff) at getting a decent quality on articles related to QM/RQM/QFT/BEYOND from a group-theoretical point of view. In that the Lorentz rep article is kind of central. I'll also ask a couple of other editors whether to go/not go. YohanN7 (talk) 11:08, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

Hi YohanN7--That you are contemplating bringing Representation theory of the Lorentz group is exciting news! I think investigating what it would take to make a GA run for a technical article like this is a worthwhile endeavor. Certainly I will take a look at the article and try to get you some useful feedback in the next few days. Best, --Mark viking (talk) 23:42, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
Excellent. Thanks! YohanN7 (talk) 07:07, 2 December 2016 (UTC)
