## Coosje van Bruggen

Usually, "by request" is accompanied by an OTRS ticket number in the edit summary or on Talk. Is there any such thing you could add to the Talk page so folks don't try adding these particular images again? Thanks. --Lexein (talk) 02:22, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for the remark! I added a section with corresponding references to the Talk:Coosje van Bruggen page. — Mikhail Ryazanov (talk) 02:51, 10 November 2012 (UTC)
Thank you for the excellent response. That DMCA takedown was rather extensive - shall I help note on article Talk for the other deleted images? --Lexein (talk) 07:43, 10 November 2012 (UTC)
Sure. I just saw that DMCA notice accidentally and was making fun of it, but if you can do anything more serious, please go ahead. — Mikhail Ryazanov (talk) 08:54, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

## File:Cupid's Span (censored).jpg listed for deletion

A file that you uploaded or altered, File:Cupid's Span (censored).jpg, has been listed at Wikipedia:Files for deletion.

## why jpeg?

Good point. I have uploaded a new png-version, and made a change to the article on which the image resides. Cheers - DVdm (talk) 07:06, 12 April 2013 (UTC)

## (moved)

Dear Mr Ryazanov: I saw your modification to Multivariate normal distribution dated 25/4. You wrote that "^k was missing in normalization factor" but actually the ^k should not be there, since the ${\displaystyle 2\pi }$ is inside the determinant, and ${\displaystyle |2\pi \Sigma |=(2\pi )^{k}|\Sigma |}$, so there's no need for an additional ^k. Hence, I removed it. Cheers. YetAnotherBunny (talk) 14:47, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

## Cubic equation picture

Looks good. Can you please upload it to Commons? Then {{vva}} can be added to the old PNG version there. — Mikhail Ryazanov (talk) 05:14, 12 May 2013 (UTC)
I think i did that right. Olin (talk) 12:58, 12 May 2013 (UTC)
Now — yes. :-) I marked the local file as duplicate and added {{vva}} to the old PNG and JPEG versions. — Mikhail Ryazanov (talk) 03:33, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
This one is next! Olin (talk) 14:55, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited BD+, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Rep (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

## Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style/Capital letters#Capitalize names of art genres?

Hi there, you may well want to join the resumed discussion on capitalisation of art movements at WT:MOSCAPS. I've started a proposal for a dedicated section in the MoS. Ham II (talk) 13:49, 10 January 2015 (UTC)

## SecureDigital

Why did you undo the revision 643960041 of SecureDigital? --Txt.file (talk) 13:15, 5 February 2015 (UTC)

The link to WP:UNITS included in the edit summary explains what was wrong. Specifically, the unit name "volt" must not be capitalized, and the adjective form must be hyphenated.
Regarding &nbsp; and {{nbsp}}, I don't really care, although the former is shorter, and {{nobr|156 MB/s}} would be more readable (WP:UNITS actually suggests &nbsp; or {{nowrap|...}}, which is the same as {{nobr|...}}). — Mikhail Ryazanov (talk) 00:07, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

## Suggestion

Can we please restart the discussion—my suggestion would be for you to delete your last two comments and my comment, perhaps with an edit summary like "per discussion at my talk". That's just a suggestion because I might not have much that is useful to say because the module essentially emulates what the old templates did, so the original thinking is from years ago. I'm distracted with off-wiki issues at the moment and may not reply for a while. Johnuniq (talk) 06:11, 8 February 2015 (UTC)

Done, please go ahead. Of course, it's not urgent, but it would be nice to clarify this issue eventually. — Mikhail Ryazanov (talk) 07:16, 8 February 2015 (UTC)

## Being civil

You've been around long enough to know better than to be WP:UNCIVIL, particularly when it concerns WP:ESs: your ES here is not appreciated. Do not make assumptions as to what I do or do not intend to do, therefore please refrain from warning me off by chastising me with "and do not revert other changes". Just as your error as to the alcohol figures were accepted as good faith errors, neither did I notice that you'd changed one word lower in that particular edit. Thank you for your courtesy and understanding. --Iryna Harpy (talk) 05:20, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

I sincerely apologize if my summary upset you, I had no intention to do so. If you think that I was "chastising you" because I omitted the word "please", I assure you that it was done only because I thought that it would not fit in the allowed space and I was not considering it that important. The whole "do not revert" part was merely a suggestion, or an appeal, to be more attentive and considerate to other editors' contributions. Namely, my edit included several corrections:
• replaced the spaced hyphen with the unspaced en dash in the range (MOS:ENDASH),
• removed the duplicate "%" in the range (MOS:PERCENT),
• added a comma before "where" (non-restrictive clause),
• changed "culture is [an] influence" to "culture has [an] influence" (a purely semantic issue, without any implications whether that culture still influences them or not anymore),
but you have reverted everything instead of simply correcting one number that I edited wrongly (deleting "5" instead of "0"), so I just wanted to let you know that this was not a good action. — Mikhail Ryazanov (talk) 06:26, 24 March 2015 (UTC)
No, you're incorrect. I saw that you'd made a couple of edits and the only revert was this one. The grammar is easily copyedited and, as you can see, I came back to the 'is' business afterwards here. Nevertheless, my apologies for being curt. I'm always careful about explaining as much as possible in the ES. I'm not sure exactly how many characters the summary allows for, but it does allow for around a couple of hundred (now, there's something worth working out).
Now, I'll apologise for not going back to fix the – en dash issue, but the article needs another copyedit in order to address grammatical issues which recently arose due to a little edit war between a couple of editors, neither of whom are native English language speakers. Essentially, it needs to be rounded out a little more, and the language tightened in general. Please see the article's talk page regarding that problem.
I hope that we can dispense with the animosity. I suspect we've both overreacted to a minor misunderstanding. I can see, by your edit history, that you're a good faith editor... so I hope we can be only friendly terms and work collaboratively in future. Nice to make your acquaintance! --Iryna Harpy (talk) 09:29, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

## The unit is Kelvin

Dear Mikhail

I have undone your edit on the article "Arrhenius equation" as the unit is called kelvin (K) not kelvins plural. That is also the case if it is 1 kelvin, 2 kelvin etc.

Regards EvilxFish (talk) 10:51, 26 February 2017 (UTC)

Please read Kelvin#Usage conventions. — Mikhail Ryazanov (talk) 20:26, 26 February 2017 (UTC)
I think you might be right but I need to look into this further, it seems so weird. In my entire career so far I have always said "22 Kelvin" not "22 Kelvins". Will let you know if I want to continue this dispute further EvilxFish (talk) 23:18, 26 February 2017 (UTC)
It should be "22 kelvins" — in lowercase and with plural "s". Just like "22 joules", "22 watts", "22 volts" and so on. All style guides and dictionaries are consistent in this respect. — Mikhail Ryazanov (talk) 23:31, 26 February 2017 (UTC)

## concentration unit

I am concerned that you have changed concentration units from mol dm-3 to mol/L. What is the justification for this change? I believe it is against IUPAC recommendation Petergans (talk) 10:17, 1 March 2017 (UTC)

I don not know what exactly you are referring to, but "mol dm-3" should have been changed to at least "mol dm−3" (see MOS:MINUS). However, I have changed it to "mol/L" ("mole per litre"), since this notation, perfectly acceptable in SI and according to our MOS:NUM, is much cleaner than "mol dm−3" ("mole decimetre reciprocal cubed", or how do you pronounce it?). Moreover, the prefix "deci-" is discouraged by MOS:NUM, and in pedantic SI this would be "kmol/m3". — Mikhail Ryazanov (talk) 22:59, 1 March 2017 (UTC)
