Maps

Thanks for promoting my maps the last weeks. Sorry I can't respond to your messages most of the time. I'm quite a busy person this period. I only found some time this week-end to see what was going on in Wikipedia.

I really need to improve some of my maps in order to have a chance to become featured images. I plan to update my Roman Empire map (the one with the legionary bases) in the near future. Now I only have a single very good map, this one:

Map of the Franklin-Nashville Campaign

.

I don't know if it's good enough to be a feature image. What do you think?

About the map with the Hungarians in Transylvania, the brown colour means that there's a very limited Hungarian presence (below 1%). I'll add that to the legend.

Moons of Uranus

I nominated this list to WP:FLC. Ruslik (talk) 18:20, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Metallica

I made some upgrades to List of Metallica concert tours (considering the FTC "gap"), are you interested in turning it into an FL? igordebraga 03:52, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

Only that the intro needs to be expanded, and you could research a bit more on supporting acts and such (and add more refs). Maybe the release sections isn't needed, the band doesn't have much live material. I hid the "Notes" (to self) you left there. And just a sidenote in case "reliability of references" is brought up in PR and FLC (though one of those is even in the main Metallica article, so maybe they can pass), the official website has date and place of every concert they made. igordebraga 18:27, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Since I did some cleanup in the refs, just the intro, expand it and put a nice picture and we might have a FL. igordebraga 21:09, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

HD 40307 for Good Topic

Well, it's finally here. Would you like to take a look at it? --Starstriker7(Talk) 00:02, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Tropical cyclone scales

Since no one else wanted to officially review it (apparently,) I have. You've seen these comments before as they lie on the talk page. The line you added into the lead concerning the alternative scales needs clarification within the article below, Beaufort scale use above force 12 needs to be addressed before passage, and reference years should be included in all the refs (since they were included in some of the refs.)

The Simpsons 138th Episode Spectacular

I've added the production information available on the DVD to the article. —TheLeftorium 20:53, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the barnstar

though the list isn't featured quite yet! :-) Serendipodous 14:33, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Re: Request

It doesn't appear that the articles were referenced at all, which contributed to the problem. Ergo, as long as they are a nice improvement over what they were, they could be recreated. As for the AfD itself, if you want them restored as they were, you'd go to WP:DRV, since I still see a fairly clear consensus to delete after re-reading it. Wizardman 14:26, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

ES4 Topic

Shouldn't I be the one to nominate it, then? What would be in it? Just the main article, the Dev. article and the Re-rating article? Geuiwogbil (Talk) 16:00, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

Oh yeah, that's why I stopped working on it. I was pretty discouraged after Knights of the Nine failed FAC (for no good reason, IMHO), so I stopped working on the series. That, and the vitriol spilled after the ESRB re-rating article hit the main page. And the bad blood on Oblivion‍ '​s talk page. So, then, have you been working on, uh, whatsit, the other one, then? Shivering Isles? It still has no reception, no gameplay, and a messy plot section. If you can get it up to GA, then sure, you can co-nom the set with me. Geuiwogbil (Talk) 17:29, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

Buddhist crisis

You should probably try to get Buddhist crisis a featured topic. Nergaal (talk) 16:37, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

I've tried to master Wiki math markup and failed. I was wondering if you could transcribe the equation at Bruton's page so I could include it in the equilibrium objects list. Thanks for your time. Serendipodous 17:03, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Thanskis! Serendipodous 17:19, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Nerg, I don't really know what to do about the new note system. I think it's going to be targeted by reviewers because the letters are out of order. But to reorder them would require manually replacing every note in the list, which would be an almost impossible task. Serendipodous 19:15, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Preview and edit comments

Nice edits to zinc but it would be much easier to track what you are doing if you used preview more often vs saving so much and put a brief explanation in the subject line saying what you did. Thanks again for the great edits - I just wish they could be parsed more easily. :) --mav (talk) 03:32, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

{{elementbox}} revert

Hi,

What was the rationale for this revert (and this one)? You haven't provided any useful edit summary (which is usually reserved for edits considered to be vandalism, which this certainly wasn't). Please consider using edit summaries when reverting edits made in good faith in future. Thanks. Chris Cunningham (not at work) - talk 11:52, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Oh well

As you probably know, I am not overly fond of having articles on the main page, but I can deal. :-) BTW, thanks for your help with "...hydrostatic equilibrium". That was a stressful assignment, I don't mind saying. Serendipodous 19:02, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

User:rst20xx wants to create a Solar System lists subtopic, with List of Solar System objects as its main aritlce. I've been consolidating the lists and merging the info where I can but there is a ling way to go before that topic is finished. As regards Jupiter, I've been having evil thoughts that a Jupiter topic cannot be complete without a Magnetosphere of Jupiter article, since Jupiter has the largest magnetosphere in the Solar System :( Serendipodous 12:33, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
A few ideas. It will take me a while to sketch out; it's a vast subject. Serendipodous 19:27, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

NIN FTC

Sorry for not getting back to you earlier. Feel free to go ahead with the FTC. In fact, I'd be happy to co-nominate it with you if you want to pursue it. Unfortunately though, I think the last FTC was left somewhat unresolved, and really boiled down to a meta-issue that had to do with the scope of what is considered a "featured topic", or even I "topic", I suppose. I withdrew the nom since it seemed the FTC community was going to hash it out amongst themselves, but it looks like that never happened. So I think that would be the best place to start, since the success of the FTC pretty much hinges on that. Let me know what you plan on doing. I wish I could do more, but I'm just really busy at the moment. I'll do my best to help out if you need it though. Drewcifer (talk) 05:09, 8 February 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for taking point on this. Looks like everything went smoothly! Drewcifer (talk) 21:38, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

Moons of Haumea

Hi Nergaal, I am reviewing your article, Moons of Haumea, for GA and have left some comments at Talk:Moons of Haumea/GA1. Basically, as I am familiar with your other articles and know that you write well, I believe you could write this article in a way that is more understandable to the general reader. Please don't hesitate to contact me with questions or comments. Regards, —Mattisse (Talk) 03:42, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

Yay, we got GA! Nice work :) Iridia (talk) 11:55, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

Controversy over the discovery of Haumea

The article you nominated for GA, Controversy over the discovery of Haumea, quick failed GA because of current edit wars over the POV status of the article. See Talk:Controversy over the discovery of Haumea/GA1. Please renominate it when the disagreement is resolved. Regards, —Mattisse (Talk) 03:56, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

Zinc

I am up again and I read the page today, although after a quick look it is good and contains some stuff which we should include.--Stone (talk) 20:24, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

Hey Nergaal... I'm a bit concerned about Zinc compounds turning into a fork. I assume that the section in zinc will be turned into a summary, while zinc compounds will contain more detail? Whichever the case, it'll be a bit of work keeping them in sync, whereas a lot of duplication is inevitable? --Rifleman 82 (talk) 05:39, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

Outer Solar System featured topic?

I wonder if this would be a good one...would need some work on a few articles, but there's the existing bedrock of KBOs, Scattered disc, Planets beyond Neptune and the rather fantastic quality Oort cloud. Then put in Sedna, Centaurs, unstub Neptune trojan, pull TNOs, Detached object, Hills cloud through GA etc...

Think it might be worth it? There's so much good material in there, it would be nice to have it all pulled together in some framework and recognised. Iridia (talk) 11:19, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

Compounds of zinc

I like the newest reorg of the chemistry and compound material at zinc. Spinning off the chemistry detail is also a good idea (of course, we now need to summarize that material at zinc). However, in the future, please make sure to always mention where you copied text from when spinning off a new article. It is customary to do this in the first edit summary. This is necessary per the attribution clause of the GNU FDL and to avoid the appearance of plagiarism. Also, as noted before, edit summaries would make it easier for other editors to know what you are doing. --mav (talk) 16:14, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

Controversial move

Hi. Could you, please, undo your move of Soviet occupation of Bessarabia and Northern Bukovina. This is a very controversial move, and it should be first discussed in the talk page. This issue was discussed at length there, and the title was judged appropriate. Please. Dc76\talk 05:08, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

It's undone for now. Further discussion of the article name can be held on Talk:Soviet occupation of Bessarabia and Northern Bukovina as part of a requested move. DrKiernan (talk) 13:59, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

Apollo moon landing conspiracy theory article

I'm just wondering, out of curiousity, why you nominated for GA the article (Which needs a ton of work), when you haven't actually edited it yourself? It seems you've also done that for other articles that you haven't contributed to. Noble Story (talkcontributions) 01:21, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

Also, let me say bluntly that this article needs a ton of work. So if you're not willing to work on the article, then it should be withdrawn from GAN. Noble Story (talkcontributions) 11:29, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

DYK for Compounds of zinc

Updated DYK query On February 25, 2009, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Compounds of zinc, which you created or substantially expanded. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the Did you know? talk page.

Ruslik and I (well, mainly Ruslik at this point) are in the process of getting Magnetosphere of Jupiter off the ground, and it looks like Jupiter Trojan is an FA lock, so this would be the last piece of the Jupiter FT puzzle.

GA review for Snooker- progress?

Hello Nergaal, you still haven't made the modifications to the snooker article made on the GA review page. When are you intending to do this? Regards, MarquisCostello (talk) 18:33, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

I have failed the article due to a lack of progress, but please re-nominate in the future when the article is ready. Regards, MarquisCostello (talk) 15:21, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

RE: Dexter

Hi, I read your post on the dexter episodes talk page. In my opinion, every article to which enough production and reception info can be provided merits it's own article. In fact, we're sort of trying to get a first season Good/Featured topic. A Dexter WikiProject has been proposed, so you can sign if you want. I was planning on creating the project in the next few weeks, with a Featured Topic Drive, similiar to the Simpsons WikiProject.

Hope that answers your question.--Music26/11 20:27, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Hi again, I noticed your expansion on the dexter episodes article, great job. I wanted to do it for quite some time but never got around to it. Great job, thank you very much.--Music26/11 11:47, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
I'm planning to take the list to FLC again (you can be listed as a co-nominater if you want to), "Seeing Red" is the only summary that needs expansion. I was about to do so when I noticed your hidden summaries. The first one looks good to me. Is there something about it that your not satisfied with, and are there other things you feel that need to be done before it is nominated again. Thanks.--Music26/11 15:51, 16 May 2009 (UTC)
Nice work on the summary, I assume you're done now. I'll see if I can contact a copy-editor this week so hopefully, the list is good for FLC in the following days.--Music26/11 15:27, 18 May 2009 (UTC)
I contacted User:Baffle gab1978 for a copy-edit, he said he would take a look, but appearently he's quite busy. However, I think the page is good enough; I'll nominate it.--Music26/11 14:04, 25 May 2009 (UTC)
The page has been copy-edited and nominated. Also, your comments on the House FAc have been resolved (kind of, read the reply). Thanks.--Music26/11 19:45, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

Damien (South Park)

Hey Nergaal. Since you're participating in the South Park Drive, I wanted to bring this to your attention. Right now, the FAC for Damien (South Park) seems to be hung up solely on the image rationales for the infobox image and the Omen comparison image. If the Omen picture has to go, I can live with that, but I can't see justifying cutting the infobox image. I'd appreciate it if you could go to the FAC to voice your support if you think the images work, or to provide me with some feedback on how they can be fixed if they aren't. (Of everyone who has criticized so far, nobody has provided any helpful feedback yet). It's over here: Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Damien (South Park)/archive1. Thanks! — Hunter Kahn (contribs) 21:59, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Featured topic candidates/Listed buildings in Runcorn

Hi, I noticed you opposed the above GT candidate, however the scope of the topic has now changed from "Listed buildings in Runcorn" to "Grade I listed buildings in Runcorn".

South Park (season 1)

The "Tom's Rhinoplasty" summary is a bit short compared to the others (and the "Volcano" one is a bit long). Also, the lead needs to be expanded with information from the reception section. Other than that I think it's pretty good. TheLeftorium 19:09, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

Hi again. I found the pronunciation key, Wikipedia:IPA for English, if I were to create a new column(s) for pronunciations. However, wouldn't I need multiple columns, one for posthumous names, one for personal names, and one for era names? That seems like a mountain of work. But more importantly, work that I am kind of unqualified to do.--Pericles of AthensTalk 20:42, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

Aha! Wiktionary is your friend, my friend. Lol. I can't believe I didn't think of this before. Take for example, Emperor's Gao's character with the flat tone "gāo"; an audio pronunciation is provided at Wiktionary. Should I link each of their characters to Wiktionary?--Pericles of AthensTalk 20:51, 24 May 2009 (UTC)
Hmm...then again, some entries at Wiktionary, such as "huì" for Emperor Hui of Han don't have the audio pronunciation available. Perhaps just using Wiktionary would be insufficient. I don't know how many of the Chinese characters will actually have audio files at Wiktionary.--Pericles of AthensTalk 20:54, 24 May 2009 (UTC)
What do you think? Should I use Wiktionary regardless?--Pericles of AthensTalk 20:56, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

Polish culture during World War FAR

Hi, in response to your comment over at the article's FAR [1] - in regard to the numerous redlinked names - I got to work and created articles for about 23 of the redlinks. I relied mostly on Polish wiki and online sources. A few of the created articles are not much more than stubs but most are of decent length and I got a DYK for one of them. I plan on continuing to expand them regardless of what happens with the Polish Culture FAR. I would very much appreciate it if you were willing to take another look at the Polish culture during World War II article and see if this is enough to get you to switch from "leaning oppose" to at least "leaning support". I'll also do a few more in the next few days. Thank you! radek (talk) 05:54, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of Hot 100 number-one singles of 2007 (Canada) (2nd nomination)

You have the right idea, but the wrong process, I think. See my comment at the AfD. Dabomb87 (talk) 23:10, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

I agree, you should have gone with a merge proposal right from the start if that is what your goal was. While I don't think that merging the lists by year is appropriate, as I said at the AfD if you decide to propose a merge you should come up with a less offensive rationale than "Canada is not a notable enough contry to deserve its "Hot ..." lists for each year." Calling Canada not notable is not a very good way to Win Friends and Influence People. I bring that up because once a merge on a Canadian article is proposed it usually gets posted at the Canadian Wikipedian's Notice Board. CWNB sees a lot of Canadian editors who do not appreciate having Canada called not notable enough. Also you should be prepared to explain why you think Lists of US Hot 100 singles by year meet inclusion criteria for stand alone lists, but Canadian lists do not.--kelapstick (talk) 17:18, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

Whack!

Rainbow trout transparent.png Whack!

You've been whacked with a wet trout.

Don't take this too seriously. Someone just wants to let you know you did something silly.

For nominating three lists at Articles for deletion when a.) all you wanted was a merge, b.) one of them was a featured list, and c.) your rationale for merge was invalid, as the lists were already long-established as being sufficiently notable. Do you realize how long Canadian Hot 100 would be if those three lists were merged? Didn't you also realize that Canadian Singles Chart and RPM also have chart lists for each year, as do major charts in many, many other countries?! I agree with what Kelapstick said: "If you want to merge the articles, than request a merge, however I suggest coming up with a better argument than Canada's lack of notability."

Hi there, I have been the primary editor of this article over the last few months. Due to Jackson's death I have been away from wikipedia, but plan to return on Friday. I was hoping you could remove the GA nomination for the time being? I would like the opportunity to read through it and clean it up a bit more before sending it over.

South Park (Season 1)

I saw that the FAC wasn't promoted. I was kind of surprised how quickly it was shut down, I thought we were responding to things. But in the meantime, I think we should nominate this for a peer review before we put up the FAC again. I thought I'd check with you for your thoughts before I did this? — Hunter Kahn (c) 19:20, 9 August 2009 (UTC)


-

  • Hrmm. Well, in addition to the copy edit, we probably do need to look for more sources. A FA is supposed to be comprehensive, and in fairness, there are probably still a lot of sources that we need to look at. In addition to newspaper articles and books, there are academic sources, journal articles, magazine articles, etc etc. — Hunter Kahn (c) 19:36, 9 August 2009 (UTC)


-

    • I don't know what specific information is lacking right now, but I think as we look at more and mores sources, we'd probably be shocked by how much more information we'd really find. I think we cover most of the basics right now, but that doesn't mean there isn't more out there. We haven't included anything from any of the big South Park books like this, this and [2]. We've only got information from three episode's worth of audio commentaries, and nothing from 10 other episodes. We've got lots of news articles, but I'm positive there are more out there. And we don't really have any journal or scholarly sources right now... — Hunter Kahn (c) 19:51, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

Re: GAN

-


-

Hi, and thank you. I was considering sending one of those articles straight to FA review, and was concentrating on some spin-offs (redlink filling etc.). It's the Creangă article I mean, and that's because it dawned on me that a main page feature on December 31, 2009 (120 years since his death!) would be great. I'm doing that slowly, but I'll be getting there eventually. About Tismăneanu, I would avoid GAN for an article on a living person as a rule - it's subject to change much depending on what happens tomorrow (I recently had to add an entire paragraph on things that took place last week), but it's really not my call. But if you think GAN is the way to go on the other articles (and the though itself is an honor), please go for it. However, if I may ask this of you, don't nominate them both at the same time: reviewers may find that there are things which need fixing, and might address their requests to me directly; since I'm also doing other things, flipping between two such discussions may prove overwhelming (you know what they say about running after two rabbits). Dahn (talk) 11:11, 19 August 2009 (UTC)


-


-

Awright then, I'll be back with more soon enough, and I'll make sure to let you know about Creangă. Thank you again, Dahn (talk) 16:41, 19 August 2009 (UTC)


-


-

I allowed myself to edit out the list you added, and there was little room to explain why. Let me expand on my rationale here.


-


-

For one, a stylistic point: bare urls can't be used as references, they have to be converted into a "who what where". That said, the link itself was good. the larger issue involves the mysteries and differing accounts of Creangă's actual bibliography: I found dates provided in Braga, but they only go for the main works, and I note that even these may differ significantly from other accounts. Also, neither Vianu nor Călinescu bother mentioning the dates at all. There is also another matter of what it means for a story to have a date: is it when it was written, when it was first published somewhere (in Creangă's case, these works were first printed in magazines or textbooks), or when it was first included in a book? Other stories simply have no date available: Fiul iepei may have been begun and dropped in 1877, but it was never finished not published in IC's lifetime; still other works (such as Păsărica în timpul iernii) are part of his bibliography somehow, but they are not mentioned in such lists, which means that the list was and will remain incomplete unless it becomes sordid. Also note that, in fact, only a fraction of IC's manuscript has survived at all to this day (who can say a list of works is complete when we know that part of these were being used for packaging in the early 1900s?).


-


-

Might I also add that I for one find such lists perhaps necessary in a schematic article, but burdensome and repetitive in a detailed one. Plus, the alternation of English titles (for articles and redlinks) and Romanian titles (for insignificant stories) creates an eyesore on a bulleted list.


-


-

There is a way to contemplate for getting past those problems and producing a relevant list that could bypass these problems and render onto Caesar. We could consider a "Bibliography of..." article (per Bibliography of Mircea Eliade), but this requires some research and is not really imperative. Dahn (talk) 17:10, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

Big Gay Al's Big Gay Boat Ride

-


-

Hey Nergaal. I see you've also listed Big Gay Al's Big Gay Boat Ride for a GAN. I wanted to let you know back when I was doing some work on this article in September and October, I complied all the notes from the episode's commentary track but never got around to putting it in the article. Since it's up for a GAN now, I figured I'd better get myself gear and put it in now. I've done that, so please take a look at my recent edits to see if you are OK with everything. They could probably use a copy edit from someone other than myself too, but with all the content we have now, I think it will be ready for an FAC not too long after the GA process is done. Also, it is mentioned in the lead that this is the first episode featuring Pip, but that is not featured in the article itself, nor it is sourced. We need to fix that... — Hunter Kahn (c) 21:31, 2 November 2009 (UTC)


-

  • Question: Do you mind if I list myself as a co-nominator on the GAN for this article? I feel like I've done enough work on the article to merit it, but more importantly, I would like to be involved on the review process and the subsequent FAC process in the future. I know it's already got three co-nominators, but hey, the SP Features Topic drive is all about collaboration, right? If you'd rather me not, I'll still help out in the future improvements, but I'd like to be listed if you don't object... — Hunter Kahn (c) 04:34, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

As far as I can tell the information was copy pasted by you from the world bank site - which has a copyright notice at the bottom of the page. Can you clarify on the talk page why you believe the info is not copyrighted? Thanks.Shortfatlad (talk) 20:09, 23 November 2009 (UTC)

Ceres for TFA?

-


-

Just a heads-up, you might want to nominate Ceres (dwarf planet) to be the January 1 Featured Article. I think it'd be worth 3 points, 2 for having been featured for more than two years and one for the anniversary of discovery. It would, at least initially, have priority over either of the current 3-point requests that have an oppose vote. --66.194.74.18 (talk) 01:15, 1 December 2009 (UTC)

2010 WikiCup Signups Reconfirmation!

-


-

To ensure that everyone who signed up is still committed to participating in the 2010 WikiCup, it is required that you remove your name from this list! By removing your name, you are not removing yourself from the WikiCup. This is simply a way for the judges to take note of who has not yet reconfirmed their participation. If you have not removed your name from that list by December 30th, 2009 (by 23:59 (UTC)) then your name will be removed from the WikiCup.


-


-

It's worth noting the rules have changed, likely after you signed up. The changes made thus far are:


-

  • Mainspace and/or portal edits will not be awarded points at all.


-

  • Did you know? articles (which were worth 5 points last year) will now be worth 10 points.


-

  • Good articles (which were worth 30 points last year) will now be worth 40 points.


-

  • Valued pictures will be now awarded points, however the amount (5 or 10 points) is still being discussed.


-

  • Featured lists (which were worth 30 points last year) will now be worth 40 points.


-

  • Featured portals (which were worth 25 points last year) will now be worth 35 points.


-

  • Featured articles (which were worth 50 points last year) will now be worth 100 points.


-

  • Featured topics (which were worth 10 points per article last year) will now be worth 15 points per any article in the topic that you were a major contributor to.


-

  • Good topics (which were worth 5 points per article last year) will now be worth 10 points per any article in the topic that you were a major contributor to.


-

  • In the news will still be awarded points, however the amount (5 or 10 points) is still being discussed.

If you have any final concerns about the WikiCup's rules and regulations, please ask them now, before the Cup begins to avoid last minute problems. You may come to the WikiCup's talk page, or any of the judge's user talk pages. We're looking forwards to a great 2010 WikiCup!

Proposal to raise FT criteria to requiring 50% featured

This passed, so your FT(s) need more articles featured by 1 September 2010, or else they will become GTs - rst20xx (talk) 20:58, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

Note at Economic history of China (pre-1911) FAC

-


-

I have responded to your comment. I would love to have some graphs, but unfortunately for ancient history reliable graphs are simply not available. Also, covering a 4000 year economic history under the FA's requirements does lend itself to a lot of sections. I hope you can give me more specific advice to improve the article.Teeninvestor (talk) 23:18, 21 December 2009 (UTC)


-


-

What would your advice be, on the subsections?(considering quite a bit of the article's subject matter relies on extricate explanation).Teeninvestor (talk) 22:10, 22 December 2009 (UTC)


-

Nergaal, I have followed your advice and cut down the number of subsections dramatically. I think there are only about 20 subsections left. Do you have any more advice? Thanks. (Another note; all remaining subsections have many paragraphs of text.)Teeninvestor (talk) 23:08, 22 December 2009 (UTC)


-


-

Although the FAC's closed, do you think the problem of too many subsections has been addressed? Thanks.Teeninvestor (talk) 14:25, 23 December 2009 (UTC)

Re: Liquid nitrogen picture

Yes, sorry, your nitrogen was dark green (:-). The idea is great, but the photo should be better. Materialscientist (talk) 04:33, 27 December 2009 (UTC)

Incorrect color is worse than having nothing at all and just saying it is colorless transparent liquid. I have found and put into the infobox a reasonable picture. Happy new year! Materialscientist (talk) 00:20, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

Welcome to the biggest WikiCup Wikipedia has yet seen! Round one will take place over two months, and finish on February 26. There is only one pool, and the top 64 will progress. The competition will be tough, as more than half of the current competitors will not make it to round 2. Details about scoring have been finalized and are explained at Wikipedia:WikiCup/Scoring. Please make sure you're familiar with the scoring rules, because any submissions made that violate these rules will be removed. Like always, the judges can be reached through the WikiCup talk pages, on their talk page, or over IRC with any issues concerning anything tied to the Cup. We will keep in contact with you via weekly newsletters; if you do not want to receive them, please remove yourself from the list here. Conversely, if a non-WikiCup participant wishes to receive the newsletters, they may add themselves to that list. Well, enough talk- get writing! Your submission's page is located here. Details on how to submit your content is located here, so be sure to check that out! Once content has been recognized, it can be added to your submissions page, from which our bot will update the main score table. Remember that only articles worked on and nominated during the competition are eligible for points. Have fun, and good luck! Garden, iMatthew, J Milburn, and The ed17 19:21, 31 December 2009 (UTC)
