Hello, Misternuvistor, Welcome to Wikipedia!
I hope you like working here and want to continue. If you need help on how to name new articles, look at Naming Conventions, and for help on formatting the pages visit the Manual of Style. If you need general help, look at Help and the FAQ, and if you can't find your answer there, check the Village pump (for Wikipedia related questions) or the Reference Desk (for general questions). There's still more help at the Tutorial and the Policy Library. Also, don't forget to visit the Community Portal — and if you have any more questions after that, feel free to post them on my New-Users' Talk Page.
Additional tips:
Here are some extra tips to help you get around Wikipedia:
  • If you made any edits before you got an account, you might be interested in assigning those to your username.
  • If you want to play around with your new Wiki skills, try the Sandbox.
  • Click on the Edit button on a page, and look at how other editors did what they did.
  • You can sign your name using three tildes, like this: ~~~. If you use four, you can add a datestamp too. Always sign comments on Talk pages, never sign Articles.
  • You might want to add yourself to the New User Log
  • If your first language isn't English, try Wikipedia:Contributing to articles outside your native language
Happy editing!

M-II / Panasonic MII[edit]

Hello Misternuvistor,

First of all, welcome. It's nice to see an addition to the few Wikipedia editors interested in professional video. I'm here because I noticed you added a link to M-II to Panasonic MII - but the two articles are duplicates and should be merged, not cross-linked. Your article (M-II) is more comprehensive, and there are few things that are in Panasonic MII and not in M-II. However, I am pretty (though not perfectly) sure the format's official name is MII - the logo, for one, has no hyphen. Articles should nearly always always be under the official names of things, disambiguated if necessary, with common variants redirecting there, so it would be best to merge both into MII (video tape). I thought I'd ask your opinion before I do a merge&redirect. What do you think? -- grm_wnr Esc 12:11, 25 May 2005 (UTC)

Oh, I think I have a few things to add - of course, the most GFDL-compatible way of doing this would be to move M-II to MII (video tape), and merge in Panasonic MII afterwards. Also, I noticed that the images you added (Image:Logo_mii.gif and Image:Mii_cassette.jpg) are noted with "courtesy of...", and have no copyright tag. This is dangerous, since they might be tagged as Wikipedia:Possibly unfree images and deleted. The logo is probably okay under fair use and should be tagged with {{logo}}, but I'm not so sure about the photograph. If by "courtesy" you mean you took it off their web page without asking for permission, that is most probably a copyright violation (since that webpage does not have a copyright disclaimer I was able to find, we must assume everything on there is copyrighted). If you mean that you asked for permission, you have to state what they told you - images with certain restrictions on usage, i.e. Wikipedia use only, non-commercial use only, etc., were recently declared deprecated, and are also eligible for speedy deletion. I don't want to heap a lot of legalese on you, but let's just say that the copyright situation on Wikipedia is a very important one and the bulk of the community does not take such issues lightly. If you add images which are not clearly tagged (repeatedly, at least), you are headed for many, many heated discussions. -- grm_wnr Esc 12:33, 25 May 2005 (UTC)

Got your message. About the merge: Sure, go ahead. About the images: Copyright templates go on the image's decription page, not the articles themselves. The description page is linked inline images in articles, which makes it easier to reuse images on multiple articles. You can edit image pages like any other page. I've already done this in the case of Image:Logo_mii.gif, you can click on that to see how it's done. Cheers and happy editing! BTW, I've been around Wikipedia for over a year and still finding new stuff myself ;) -- grm_wnr Esc 00:05, 26 May 2005 (UTC)


Thanks for the Quadruplex article. I meant to flesh it out when i had time, but your's looks great - i have no idea how i missed it. I'll fix the links from the other articles later. How's Bismark these days, i used to live there in the 80's. Dirt 19:19, 13 August 2005 (UTC)

As to the 2" Quad links - i created them all, might as well have them point to the correct page and not the redirect. Seems cleaner to me. I lived on what used to be the edge of Bismark - Kennedy Ave near Divide and 23rd - in one of the dome houses. I drove through a few years ago, lots of new houses in what used to be fields. Dirt 23:53, 17 August 2005 (UTC)


Hi, I redrew the XDR logo you uploaded and saved it as PNG (Image:Xdr_logo.jpgImage:XDR logo.png) – it is now much smaller in filesize, cleaner and has a higher resolution. Therefore I also listed the original for deletion. Hope this is OK. Mysid (talk) 13:01, 21 September 2005 (UTC)

Re: EBS Slide[edit]

Thanks for your message; sorry it took me so long to get back to you. The image of the slide came from an old videotape I made of a blizzard warning announcement back in 1993; the station was WPMT in York, PA. They (and other local stations) had been using it since I was a kid back in the '70s (as a small child, I used to find it a bit frightening). I have been trying to find out more information about the logo, to no avail. I contacted the FCC through their EAS page, and they seemed to have no knowledge of this logo. I was trying to find out what the original colors were (as you can see, the slide was seriously faded; I wanted to clean up the scratches and dirt in Photoshop and restore it to its original appearance). I also contacted WPMT, but they have given me no response at all. Here is a larger version of the slide...

...and a touched-up and centered version:

If I can ever find out what the original color scheme was, I will be posting an updated version to Wikipedia.

ND Wikipedians[edit]

Hey, nice to see another Bismarcker out here. I didn't even know there was a category for ND wikipedians. Also glad that someone feels my pain about Paris Hilton and Howard Stern! Weatherman90 03:22, 23 January 2006 (UTC)


Why are you using this term on Big ugly dish? In this context, its not accurate - there are C and even Ka-band DBS services, but only the Ku-band ones have smaller dishes. DBS as a term for high-powered digitally modulated satellite systems is inaccurate, as the only official meaning of DBS is the 1977 ITU frequency allocation plan, everything else is a misnomer. --Kiand 08:43, 25 January 2006 (UTC)

FSS is only used as a term in the US, though. And all "DBS" services in Europe use linear polarisation - I've been getting Sky since 1989 on linear-polarised Ku-band (and X band, 10.7+Ghz) satellites, and before that Eutelsat 2F1 at 13E, linear-polarised Ku-band. Indeed, the only time I've used a circular polarised LNB since the dead of British Satellite Broadcasting was a slightly insane stunt involving a 3.1M satellite dish and getting a DirecTV testcard in Ireland...
The problem with the FSS/DBS terminology is that they refer solely to the situation in the United States. There is the rest of the world to consider, namely Europe (where satellite TV is often the main multi-channel reception format, e.g. Germany), and Australia/Asia where the European situation is often repeated - e.g. high power, linear polarised, X/Ku-band satellite transmissions in DVB.
Outside of the US, DBS is used to refer to pay-tv systems (which are in some countries, again Germany, rare to the point of being extreme minority systems - 3 versus 25 million viewers). The terms FSS and TVRO are never used. Indeed, outside of the Wikipedia, the only place I see "TVRO", "BUD" and "FSS" being used are the North American letters page of Tele-Satellite!
As goes TWTA of the satellites, the US is the only market I've ever seen a distinction being made in terminology, other than possibly refering to low power ones as "feed satellites". And the feed birds I regularly take a look at are high power (albeit usually end-of-life and hence inclined orbit and needing a stepper motor) linear Ku-band satellites.
--Kiand 15:49, 25 January 2006 (UTC)
It was EchoStar 1 at 61.5W - I can't see 72.5W even from the furthest west in the country, unfortunately. I've probably been using european-centric terms a lot, so no problems there :).
The linear polarisation is probably a legacy hang over, yes - Europe has had heavy use of DTH ever since the east broke up - people didn't want to see the one, state-run propaganda machine channel any more, and the cheapest way to get stuff up quick was onto Eutelsat 2F1, Astra 1A or Kopernikus 2 - all high power, linear polarised satellites. As capacity demand kept growing, craft kept getting added - all those three positions are still in use, and they wouldn't break legacy support for old installations, some going back to 1988-1990 timescale. --Kiand 13:39, 29 January 2006 (UTC)

Backup to VHS[edit]


I noticed your comment on the MiniDV talk page about the systems that backed up a PC drive to VHS tape. I remembered the ads and wanted to ask you to write the articles on those systems if you know anything about them. That sort of esoteric niche product ought to be documented on Wikipedia. (And I would far rather write my backups to a tape medium that's at least a digital tape medium.  :0)

Extended Data Services[edit]

I thought that might be the case, but I wasn't sure. I would be happy to withdraw my report, or do whatever else is necessary to restore the page. I have been on Wikipedia a while, but I edit rarely, so I'm not familiar with the policies. Can I just revert to the last non-blanked page? Baricom 09:18, 15 April 2006 (UTC)

Nuvistors and the Dairy Equipment Company[edit]

Hah! I thought I was the only one old enough to remember what a nuvistor was.

Do you have a source for Digital's acronym being abandoned because it was the same as that of the Dairy Equipment Company of Madison, Wisconsin, now DEC International?

I had heard this too, and put it into the article some time ago. It was removed 08:48, 10 September 2005 by with the comment (Removed nonsense about Dairy Equipment Corp trademark issue. As a long time employee I know that never happened.) Since then, I've tried to find a source, but have been unable to. Obviously my memory is not perfectly reliable, since I also thought it was Alan Kotok who told that to me, and I emailed him--we haven't been in touch since the 1960s when we were only the vaguest of acquaintences--and he couldn't remember anything about it.

I'd love to have this pinned down.

Long-time DEC employees' memories aren't necessarilly perfect, either, as I've had them insist, vehemently, that DEC was never used officially by DEC itself. Fortunately I have the old manuals to prove it that DEC did. Dpbsmith (talk) 13:29, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

  • I've been looking into this issue, too. Finding this note helped a bit -- I hadn't found anything before to indicate that the Dairy Equipment Co. had changed its name to DEC International. Unfortunately, there are too many companies out there called DEC International -- so far I've found a prospecting firm in Georgia, a flexible HVAC ducting company in the Netherlands, and a company in New Zealand that does God-only-knows-what, but no dairy equipment.
    I did find a better-formatted (and more up-to-date) version of the Bou-Matic history found in the link above. But since Bou-Matic is no longer part of DEC International, they didn't include a link to it, darn them... -- CWesling 01:00, 10 June 2006 (UTC)
"DEC" was certainly used the official logo at the beginning. One of these days I'll get around to posting pictures of my "Laboratory Modules" (the first products DEC ever built/sold); these plainly show the logo. And the shrubs in front of the entrance to MK[O][1], the Merrimack, New Hampshire facility were trimmed into the letters "D", "E", "C", well into the 80's.

Hi there,

Nice article, thanks. I noticed that there were a lot of redlinks for this already (check out "what links here").

I'd really appreciate it if you could add your references to this article. Thanks!

If you need any help with the technical aspects, please ask, although for web-based references, you can just put it inline using [] (comes out as [1]). Since you're a self-proclaimed geek and have been editing longer than me, you probably don't need my help :)

MatthewUND's RfA[edit]

I just self-nominated myself for administrator's status on Wikipedia. As an active member of WikiProject North Dakota, I feel that having admin status would allow me the ability to be more useful to the project and to curtail vandalism and other problems. An admin is able to protect pages that are being bombarded with vandalism and to more quickly revert pages that have been vandalized. I've always hoped that we could get an admin to join the WikiProject so we would have someone to turn to in times of need. Since we still don't have an active admin within the project's membership, I decided to nominate myself. I really hope you will visit my request for adminship and support me. Thanks! --MatthewUND(talk) 10:47, 29 December 2006 (UTC)

---North Dakota Portal---
Wikipedia now has a new portal devoted exclusively to the state of North Dakota. Check out Portal:North Dakota.

WPND member NDCompuGeek has constructed the initial framework for the portal and it should now be easy to update the portal on a month-by-month basis. The portal will serve as a kind of "front door" for people using Wikipedia to learn more about North Dakota. It is a great starting point for branching out into the many aspects of the state.

Each month a different article, picture, city, and biography will be showcased along with current news and happenings from around the state. The July version of the portal showcases the Mandan tribe, Governor John Hoeven, and the capital city of Bismarck.

Visit the portal's talk page to share your opinions and ideas regarding the portal.

Kodak picture[edit]

It has been undeleted. Sorry about that, sometimes it can get really messy when an image copyright tag has to go. The tag says that "images uploaded before May 19, 2005 will be considered for deletion." Is there any place where this has been discussed? Anyway, The image is restored for now and I'm soory if I caused any inconvenience. RyanGerbil10(C-Town) 12:33, 13 July 2007 (UTC)

---Grand Forks now a Featured Article---
Grand Forks, North Dakota was recently designated as a Featured Article. This means that the article has gone through a nomination process in which it was reviewed and its quality was assessed. The fact that this article made it through the process shows that it is a high quality, well-written, well-sourced article. Currently, there are only a little over 1,500 Featured Articles in the almost two million articles on the English language Wikipedia. That means that only about one in 1,270 articles has been given this designation.

The Grand Forks article is a great example to follow when working on other city articles, particularly those about North Dakota cities. We would be very well off if our other major city articles were similar to the Grand Forks article. Keep the Grand Forks article bookmarked and refer to its structure and style when you work on similar articles.

---New assessment parameter---
You're likely aware that all WPND articles now include a quality rating located on the article's talk page. Now, a new assessment parameter is being implemented. The importance rating aims to gauge the "importance" of the article's subject as it relates to North Dakota. As an example, Bismarck, North Dakota would not be considered as being very important in relation to the country or the world, but it is of top importance when considering just the state of North Dakota.

The importance of each article is gauged as either Top, High, Mid, or Low. Since "importance" is a rather subjective term, some WPND members are trying to come up with a general set of guidelines. Check out this thread on the WPND talk page to see proposals and to share your own opinions of what is and isn't "important" in the state.

Please help to improve and expand these articles which were recently added to the WPND project:
Cities Area Transit | Dakota Territory Air Museum | Fight On Sioux | Fort Totten State Historic Site | Grand Forks Chiefs | It's For You, North Dakota U | List of people from Grand Forks, North Dakota | Log Cabin Museum, Sheyenne, ND | McKenzie Electric Cooperative | North Dakota Democratic-Independent Party | North Dakota Railroad Commission | North Dakota State Cabinet | Old Main (Minot State University-Bottineau) | Pembina State Museum | Politics of North Dakota | Ruth Meiers Hospitality House | Spirit Lake Casino | Stand Up and Cheer (song) | Turtle Mountain Indian Reservation | UND Alma Mater

Orphaned non-free media (Image:LD Turtle.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:LD Turtle.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 12:12, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:LD Turtle.jpg[edit]


Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:LD Turtle.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Speedy deletion nomination of Pépé Bradock[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Pépé Bradock requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a band or musician, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. Epeefleche (talk) 01:25, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability 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, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
