Hotpoint Washing Machines[edit]

I have added a "{{prod}}" template to the article Hotpoint Washing Machines, 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.

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article DEBUG KERNEL, because another editor is suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. If you endorse deletion of the article, and you are the only person who has made substantial edits to the page, please add {{db-author}} to the top of the page.

Alphanumeric List of Known Microsoft Windows Registry Keys[edit]

I suspect that you contacted me from the IP 92.232.150.252. I left this message on the talk page for the IP address, but I wanted to make sure you receive this. (If you did not contact me you can ignore this message).

Thank you for contacting me and explaining the context of the article. I am still not quite certain what kind of article you envision that is not already dealt with, or could be dealt with, in the article Windows Registry. If you envision fully documenting the windows registry, I think that is a very bad idea. Wikipedia does not seek to catalog all the information in the world; it is not a directory, or a guide book. However there is a sister project of wikipedia call wikibooks that is ideal for such a project and they could greatly use expertise in expanding the book wikibooks:Windows registry hacks. I would strongly recommend that you take your talents there.

If you think I am mistaken in the deletion you are welcome to recreate the article with proper context. However, as I don't think that such a list would add to an encyclopedia, I would bring it to a wider community discussion to consider deletion.

If you need any help or have any questions don't hesitate to ask me on my talk page. Jon513 (talk) 01:08, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

Re: Programming paradigms[edit]

Line-orientation is a mere syntax characteristic as opposed to a "fundamental style" of programming; it does not introduce any new abstractions/concepts like functional programming or object-oriented programming do.
