Fair use rationale for Image:Volk Nu pogodi.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Volk Nu pogodi.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image 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 image 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 '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 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. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page.

Great work[edit]

Great work on creating/adding the Russian cities Infobox to the Russia article! Also, I reverted your other edit because according to Article 1 of the Constitution, "The names "Russian Federation" and "Russia" shall be equal".--Miyokan (talk) 00:55, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

Your interesting articles[edit]

Hi there, I come here as a result of a concern expressed here about these pages. As I said there, I don't think they're doing any harm (although other admins may disagree with me), but User pages sometimes get mirrored on to other sites and these pages could be mistaken for real WP articles. Could I suggest you place a disclaimer at the top of each one similar to the one on your UserPage? That way, everyone is covered. Unless, of course, these pages aren't going to be around for long, but you've clearly put a lot of good work into them and I see no reason to lose that expertise. Regards, --Rodhullandemu (Talk) 00:01, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

I don't think anyone's saying you're doing anything wrong. There would be concerns if this is all you're doing, but it isn't. --Rodhullandemu (Talk) 00:16, 25 February 2008 (UTC)
I meant that if you were using your user pages as a sort personal webspace without contributing to the encyclopedia, this would not be acceptable, but I've taken a look at your edits and you contribute constructively. As for the tag, the one on your user page should make it clear on mirror sites that people are not viewing a real WP article. Given that there are unusual names on your pages, a Google search would be quite likely to turn up one of your pages if it was mirrored. That's all. Don't give up, however, you are producing great work here. --Rodhullandemu (Talk) 00:23, 25 February 2008 (UTC)
Further to Rod's message, NV, you have pictures of living people with the title "Führers of the United Oblasts". Fuhrer is a very loaded word and shouldn't be applied next to images of living persons - please would you either replace the images, or change the wording (from "Fuhrers" to "Leaders" or something similar). I'll check back in a couple of days and change it if needs be, but I'm sure you can come up with something more appropriate yourself. Thanks. Neıl 14:46, 25 February 2008 (UTC)
Would you like your picture next to the word "Fuhrer"? Change it yourself, please, as I asked above, or I will change it for you. Neıl 20:44, 25 February 2008 (UTC)
Thank you. Sorry for sounding threatening but we have to be especially careful with anything relating to real, living people (such as their pictures). Neıl 21:23, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

Your userpage[edit]

Wikipedia is not a free webhost. It is not here for you to hold information or images for fictional locations that you have made yourself. Over 400 of your less than 700 edits to Wikipedia are related to your user page. Right now, the only content of this page that is in anyway helpful to Wikipedia is the first edit you made to it, which was just the language userboxes. If you want to put this information somewhere, Wikipedia is not the place to do so. As such, I have deleted your user page, and solely restored the first edit you had made to it.—Ryūlóng (竜龙) 09:03, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

The code of your userpage can be found here.—Ryūlóng (竜龙) 22:28, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

About my Userpage (for now)[edit]

After the "United Oblasts incident" (let's call it that), I have promised to clean up my userpage so I will no longer contain my ideas and other "day dreams" I have. But I will continue to post on Wikipedia and continue to use my userpage for some of my day dreams (witch will only be on for a [if possible, two week long] temporary basis). If they are not worth my trouble, I will delete them, but if they are worth a continuation, I will post them on a new wiki page I will post in the future. This does not count my projects (my editions to wikipedia that might take some time to complete). While I am working on them, I place them in my Userpage for safe keeping, until they are complete and ready to go in the article. Template:Union Republics and Template:Russian cities would be my first two projects that were completed.

For those of you who actually liked my ideas, I will give the new web address when it is available. It's pretty funny, after this whole incident, I have no idea how many of you actually liked my ideas. If you did, please comment on this (it would really make my day to get some positive replies on my talk page). — NuclearVacuum 22:51, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

Even when I complained about your page at the complaint site I said I did like it. The problem is that wikipedia is simply not the place for such stuff. Please understand this. Several people told you so. As I've told you already, a good place for pseudo-wikipedia humor and hoaxes is uncyclopedia. I am sure there is many other jokular wikis.

Your edits to Mila Kunis[edit]

Hello. Non-free images such as Image:Jackie Burkhart.jpg may not be used to illustrate biographies of living people per non-free content criteria 1, which states: "Non-free content is used only where no free equivalent is available, or could be created, that would serve the same encyclopedic purpose". A free image depicting this actress could be created, so the image's use here is not covered by Wikipedia's non-free content policies. Please also note that flag icons should not be used in birth information in infoboxes per Wikipedia's guidelines on the use of flag icons. --Muchness (talk) 00:20, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

WP:MOSFLAG guidelines state: "The use of flag icons in the birth and death information in a biographical article's introduction and/or infobox is strongly deprecated, as flags imply citizenship and/or nationality". If you disagree that the guideline should apply to this article, can you please establish on the talk page that there's consensus to ignore the guideline in this case before adding the icon back to the article's infobox? --Muchness (talk) 00:34, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

Russia Culture[edit]

You made a nice job, thanks a lot, very nice addition to the culture about Russian cartoons Pakhomovru (talk) 08:46, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

Your reversions[edit]

From what I see there has been *no* decision supporting your edits. You have refused to compromise on anything, which is completely unacceptable. Just because you created the template does not mean you WP:OWN it. Your trying to get support for "standardization" will not work as each template is different. Furthermore, "standardization" does not concern trivial matters (2 images instead of 3, abbreviations instead of the full text, Tnavbar), only the main format of the template has to be the same, which it is.--Miyokan (talk) 01:37, 27 April 2008 (UTC)

You ignored an important point. "Standardization" does not concern trivial matters (2 images instead of 3, abbreviations instead of the full text, Tnavbar), only the main format of the template has to be the same, which it is, which completely deflates your argument. Writing the whole name does not "make the template too big and runny, very unpolished", on the contrary, there is plenty of room to fit the text, and there is a huge gaping gap. Putting the abbreviation does not tell readers anything, they would have to click on the text to actually understand what it means. Actually look up the definition of "abbreviation" - "abbreviations were often used to save space and effort when writing", which does not apply here as there is plenty of space. And also, no, your unilateral decision to categorize the templates does not mean they are "standardized" (also note, I was the one who actually made it into a template).--Miyokan (talk) 01:55, 27 April 2008 (UTC)
I have just seen Template talk:Mexican cities and it looks like another user, User:Supaman89, does not agree with your "standardization" of the templates and agrees with my position. Furthermore, it appears that you did not create the table at all as you so often claim, but merely copied the Mexico template that someone else created.--Miyokan (talk) 04:56, 27 April 2008 (UTC)

Building process[edit]

I see you've been on Wikipedia for seven months now. That's a good amount of experience, but not necessarily enough time to become familiar with all of our policies (I don't claim to be familiar with every one of them either. Lord knows, there are a lot). You should familiarize yourself with Wikipedia:Ownership of articles. The fact is, you made up a very nice template. Once you hit the edit button and made it part of Wikipedia, that meant it was no longer yours. Working from that template, I made up a different one—one that better serves the United States article, where it replaced the one you made up, which had in turn replaced a long-standing, smaller, in-article table. The template I made up combined the design virtues of the one you contributed with the depth of information on each metro area that the older table possessed. (Listing twenty cities, by the way, is just too many for the overview article in question. We expanded from five to ten with the move to the template, and I think that's sufficient.)

So...that's the way Wikipedia works: people contribute, building on what people before them have done. I'm sorry you thought something untoward was going on, because nothing was. In fact, when I first drew up the ten city/metro area template, I made sure to acknowledge what you had done on the Talk page: Template talk:U.S. cities and metro areas. All the best, Dan.—DCGeist (talk) 22:08, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

Information.svg Please do not assume ownership of articles such as Template:United States cities. If you aren't willing to allow your contributions to be edited extensively or be redistributed by others, please do not submit them. Thank you.
You should specifically be aware that redirecting from one article/template to another with different content—as you have done repeatedly with Template:U.S. cities and metro areas—is an abuse of the redirect command. Please familiarize yourself with Wikipedia:Redirect#What do we use redirects for? Suppressing an article/template because you don't happen to like it is not one of the things we use redirects for. If you believe that Template:United States cities best serves the United States article, then make a case for it on the article Talk page as I have done for the later version of the template. I note from the article's revision history that another editor has already made clear that the version of the template you devised (and clearly feel you own) does not best serve the article.—DCGeist (talk) 17:15, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

Template:Mexican cities[edit]

Hi man, as I explained to you in the edit summary, when you run your PC at a 800x600 resolution it doesn't fit pretty well, here is how it looks that's why the table was formated in a way it would fit fine, on the other hand I do appretiate your editions and I think you know more about wikitables than I, that's why I'd like to ask you a favour, six months ago I saw something like this and I think it would look pretty good in our table, but I don't know how to do it, maybe you could help me out on that one, cheers. Supaman89 (talk) 23:35, 4 May 2008 (UTC)

Sup man, I do can change the resolution but I just wanted to show you how it looked at that size (cuz a lot of people have it like that) and it has to look good in all sizes, right?. Regarding the arrows thing, it wasn't in this template, I saw it in another one around 6 months ago and I've been trying to find it ever since to try it on this template, (The image I showed you was made in Paint, looks real ain't it? XD) anyways I'm pretty sure it can be done I just need to find out how, maybe when I finally know how to do it it won't even look that good after all, lol.
BTW, it's ¿Hablas español? and yes I do, saludos. Supaman89 (talk) 01:59, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

Here is how it looks with 2 pics at a 800x600 resolution, the red lines show how much it outfits the screen, mate. Supaman89 (talk) 02:48, 8 May 2008 (UTC)


Please look very carefully at the two versions - you have indeed deleted certain small details in the name of window-dressing decoration with flags; e.g. the first version mentioned when German was the official language of Namibia, yours does not. Small but valuable details which should not be cast aside. The old three-step hierarchy also gave a much better idea of the prevalence of German in each country - i.e. those in the first bracket had widespread German use, those lower down have use restricted ot certain municipalities. This has been lost in the grand one-size-fits-all alphabetisation. A version with flags and all the information would not be so bad, but the onus is on you to produce it. However, the use of flags in infoboxes like this is far from universally welcomed - see WP:FLAGCRUFT. What do they really bring to the article? I'd suggest making a case at the talk page. Knepflerle (talk) 21:32, 6 May 2008 (UTC)

Map wording[edit]

Is there any particular reason why the wording on the potential superpowers map was changed? The changes certainly don't help the map's accuracy: America is a continent, not a country, and Europe and the EU are not the same (Norway, Switzerland and a few others are not part of the EU).-- (talk) 20:08, 10 May 2008 (UTC)

Indian Cities Infobox[edit]


Thanks for the infobox on the india page that you made with the largest indian cities. I hope no one else is oppposed to it, because most other country articles have such a box. great job once again. Nikkul (talk) 21:36, 10 May 2008 (UTC)

Map on European Union[edit]

Why did you abandon the discussion on the EU talk page that you initiated? I think you had raised some very valid points. Unfortunately the article is still stuck with the teeny map version that you objected. I think that the least thing to do is to implement the current version such that it shows larger upon clicking and I had the impression that you think so, too. Tomeasy (talk) 03:29, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

Superpower map[edit]

NuclearVacuum, the new map is in .SVG (high quality). Why restore that map? Felipe C.S ( talk ) 23:42, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

Sorry man, I wasn't trying to say the map was mine, people update maps all the time, I updated yours (people have updated mine, etc.), and it does say that it was made by you not me so I don't see what the problem is, I could upload the new map and create a new image but it would just be unnecesary space, I don't know if you got me here mate, cheers. Supaman89 (talk) 00:42, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

So.. what's the answer mate? if I upload the picture as a new file, I would have to replace the one in the article anyway so it would just be an unnecesary picture, so would you let me update the map as I did before so we won't have 2 maps? Supaman89 (talk) 19:49, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

Sup mate, actually we're discussing about this right now at the article's talkpage, we agree that Mexico, Brazil and India are obviously not in at the same level as Russia, China and the USA, that's why we're thiking on separating the article in 2 sections, please join us in that discussion, see you there. Supaman89 (talk) 00:58, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
A random and picky point, but the Malvinas are not marked as part of the EU. That an individual member of the EU was able to fight a war to assert its sovereignty over them halfway around the world is very significant to showing the ability of Europe to influence events around the world militarily.Somedumbyankee (talk) 01:32, 18 May 2008 (UTC)


Hello NuclearVacuum! Talking about the template, I prefer the "—". It is more neutral than that scandalous red "X"... Felipe C.S ( talk ) 20:11, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

Can you help to improve the article? Felipe C.S ( talk ) 22:47, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Mexican cities/metro areas[edit]

Can you explain your rationale behind reverting my edits at Template:Mexican cities? These are not cities, but metropolitan areas. Moreover, you reinserted a text that said "Mexico is the biggest country in the world" [1]. Is there a reason for your edits?--the Dúnadan 16:22, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

Then the template should not be used - or alternatively I can create a template with the exact same code and call it "template for metropolitan areas".
You see, the population therein reported are those of metropolitan areas, hence the title "core cities" and not "cities" on the second column of the template. By reverting me you are misinforming the reader into believing that Mexico City has a population of 19 million, whereas it is actually Greater Mexico City the conurbation with 19 million inhabitants.
I will revert you once again, but I have no problem at all in meeting you at a Dispute Resolution panel if you wish.
--the Dúnadan 16:28, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

Templates of cities[edit]

Okay mate, I'll support your opinion, I just wrote a small comment, if they discussion keeps going I'll try to keep commenting, saludos. Supaman89 (talk) 18:15, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

I am sorry. I have no willingness to discuss at the aforementioned template of the United Kingdom. In the Mexican template, you have bordered on WP:OWN and WP:3RR by reverting, without a reason, perfectly valid correction to your misinformations. Those are not, I repeat, those are not Mexican cities, but Mexican metropolitan areas. I already directed you to the appropriate links so that you could read and tell by yourself, but you have ignored me, and reverted me. I will report this incident at both WP:3RR and at the Administrator's Noticeboard.
--the Dúnadan 18:42, 18 May 2008 (UTC)
I am not threatening you, I am telling you. Please read my comments carefully, I said you have bordered on, which means you "almost" violated both WP:OWN and WP:3RR. --the Dúnadan 18:48, 18 May 2008 (UTC)
Insulting you? Where? Gee... --the Dúnadan 18:49, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

Nuvola apps important.svg Your contributions history shows that you have been aggressively cross-posting, in order to influence Template:United Kingdom cities. Although the Arbitration Committee has ruled that "The occasional light use of cross-posting to talk pages is part of Wikipedia's common practice."1, such cross-posting should adhere to specific guidelines. In the past, aggressively worded cross-posting has contributed towards an Arbitration Committee ruling of disruptive behavior that has resulted in blocks being issued. It is best not to game the system, and instead respect Wikipedia's principle of consensus-building, by ceasing to further crosspost, and instead allowing the process to reflect the opinions of editors that were already actively involved in the matter at hand. Mr Stephen (talk) 23:05, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

NuclearVacuum, I think this issue surrounding "Template:X cities" is getting out of hand, not just for the UK version, but other national variants. I'm concerned that you're persistence and distinct lack of edit summaries put you in poor standing with others. What would you say to a centralised discussion, that draws stakeholders/editors from each version to state what they think is the right way forwards? --Jza84 |  Talk  00:01, 19 May 2008 (UTC)
Well, I think your actions of "popping back" every few days to do a series of three reverts (despite fierce opposition), without discussion, and without edit summaries is highly disruptive, and could be interpretted as gaming the system. You don't seem to engage with the opposition, and consistently so. I don't think you're far from an early stage mediation and that's my main concern here.
My second point was one that seeks to avoid the above scenario. I'm suggesting that we have a centralised discussion that invites editors of all these "city" templates to discuss if a) they want a consistent approach b) how rigid that should be c) what variants (if any) are acceptable d) where should these be transcluded, etc etc. That way, we can gauge broader opinion. --Jza84 |  Talk  00:14, 19 May 2008 (UTC)
I think a discussion at Category talk:Templates of city populations would probably be the most befitting place to hold a discussion. Would you be happy about that? I could put something together tomorrow (it's now 1.30am where I am) if you like?
I have no ill thought of you, and don't think you need forgiving as such, I just think your approach with working with others hasn't been as good as it could, and, looking through some of the discussions, I think it'd be fair to say you're starting to get negative notoriety regarding this template. I think there will certainly be a need for variants of this template, but if we can codify what is and isn't permissable, I think that will go some way to resolving this issue of standardisation. --Jza84 |  Talk  00:33, 19 May 2008 (UTC)
Why you reversed my edits? Felipe C.S ( talk ) 17:05, 1 June 2008 (UTC)
It is a problem? I find, better, locate the images in the middle. Could you explain this little problem? Regards; Felipe C.S ( talk ) 19:48, 1 June 2008 (UTC)
There was no need, but it was done. Standardize templates, organize the articles. Myself who created the model that was being used, and thought it would be a good idea to create a more "wikify" template. Regards; Felipe C.S ( talk ) 20:06, 1 June 2008 (UTC)
You reversed my edits again? Why? Felipe C.S ( talk ) 20:08, 1 June 2008 (UTC)
You can not simply eliminate all my edits because you judge unnecessary. Open a discussion first, and we will decide what will be done. Felipe C.S ( talk ) 20:17, 1 June 2008 (UTC)
It is just that? Resolved problem. Felipe C.S ( talk ) 21:07, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Template:Largest cities of Australia[edit]

Hi there - I see you have been busy at this template. Please note I have no problem at all with the template and what it looks like but I have adjusted the span of cities to remove Albury. Not sure if you are aware but Albury is in New South Wales and lies on the border of Victoria (both different states in Australia). There is a large river than separates the two. Even joined together the pop'n does not equal the figure of over 100,000 people but of course if the template is called Largest Cities of Australia then Albury as a single city and Wodonga as another single city must be shown separately. Towards that end - in New South Wales, Wagga Wagga is a larger pop'n city than Albury. That said there may be a larger city than Wagga Wagga in terms of population and if so then it should go at number 20 rather than Wagga Wagga. Happy to discuss further if you need to.--VS talk 23:15, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Template CSDs[edit]

I declined all your CSDs for those templates as that is not a valid speedy criteria. See Wikipedia:CSD#Templates. If you wish you can take them to TFD in bulk. Are these templates supplanted by some other template? If so, they would meet criteria T3. xenocidic (talk) 22:41, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

Please begin using the following code to request these deletions: {{db-t3|~~~~~|PlanetboxOrbit}} (note that is 5 tildes). Thanks, xenocidic (talk) 22:55, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
The templates need to be tagged with the above message for 7 days before I can speedy them, please re-apply the correct speedy request to all those templates. Also, please do not replace the entire template - admins need to be able to see what is there and compare it to the replacement. Just add it to the top. Thanks, xenocidic (talk) 23:02, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
Please remove the template from the pages it is used before requesting deletion OR wrap the deletion request with <noinclude> </noinclude>. Thanks, xenocidic (talk) 23:09, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
Thanks. Looks like we have to wait 7 days now. cheers, xenocidic (talk) 23:21, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
I actually meant to not replace the entire navbox with the CSD tag, but no matter. I'm sure they'll figure out out. xenocidic (talk) 23:26, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

Exoplanet image and artist's section[edit]

Main article: Gliese 581 c

I wish to inform you that these images are all that there can be. Because of the long distance, there is not a way to directly take a picture of these (or any other extrasolar planets) within our lifetimes. An artist's impression is all that can be for something like this. Also, taking up a section for art is not unnecessary for Wikipedia. Wiki commons is part of the Wiki sites and is made specifically for images.

You should consider making an account here. Just anonymously editing and discussing here is not very wise to do (you may not be taken seriously at first). Also, your work looked like vandalism, so please do not bad mouth a user with blocking. — NuclearVacuum 01:25, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

Nuvola apps important.svg You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war. Note that the three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24 hour period. Additionally, users who perform a large number of reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring, even if they do not technically violate the three-revert rule.

I didn't count how many times you violated the three edit rule that would have gotten you blocked but you pass the limit by a long shot. Wiki Commons is not the article for Gl581c it is another site. Hypocrite, you defend the addition of the phony rip off of the Celestia texture of Titan and and the same time argue against artistic impression in the article.

PSR B1257+12[edit]

What's up with the weird names for these pulsar planets? I've never seen designations like the ones you dreamed up for them. The planets are PSR B1257+12 A, PSR B1257+12 B, PSR B1257+12 C. Notice they are CAPITALIZED and start with A. Please don't put in ORIGINAL RESEARCH, or Things Made Up In Class. (talk) 04:12, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

First off, there is no need to be criticizing my work. The names of the planets I got were from The Extrasolar Planets Encyclopaedia. I did not wish to question this site (seeing that it is the proper exoplanet site). If it is wrong, then change it! Just don't go around saying that I am giving it original research. — NuclearVacuum 15:51, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

Category:Multiple planetary systems[edit]

I see that you just created a new category: Multiple planetary systems, and you've added this new category to several planetary host stars articles with multiple planets. This category is a little bit bull, as planetary systems category already exists. This category (Planetary systems) is applied to stars with single planets and multiple planets. I believe that most single planetary systems will become multiple planetary systems in the future. BlueEarth (talk) 19:36, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

This template is similar to Category:Multiple star systems (witch keeps the amount of stars in order). Similarly, this will work in this principle. Giving the idea of how many planets are in a specific system. But now that I think about it, it does make sense. I will have to keep an eye on this category. — NuclearVacuum 15:57, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

Category:Super-Earth planets[edit]

I believed that the new category you've created: Category:Super-Earth planets should be changed to just Category:Super-Earths (I like that better), just like the category you've created: Hot Jupiters instead of Hot Jupiter planets. BlueEarth (talk) 19:36, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

That makes enough sense for me. I agree with you, when I can, I will change it. — NuclearVacuum 19:38, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

Revisions to the starbox templates[edit]

Please discuss any revisions to the starbox templates on Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Astronomical objects. Thank you.—RJH (talk) 18:23, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

Why are you removing my hard work? I did not change the main code, just the directory. The directory has nothing to do with the code, nothing has changed. — NuclearVacuum 18:23, 11 July 2008 (UTC)
I'll ask you the same question. The descriptions are acceptible as is; you are imposing unilateral changes on the format I established. Why do you believe you can just enforce your own bias on everybody without reaching consensus?&—RJH (talk) 18:25, 11 July 2008 (UTC)
Please read WP:OWN, this is not your article, so please do not "I established", that is implying that it is your article and you do not want it to be changed by anybody. Secondly, there was no change to the main code itself. Nothing would have changed, the code that I am proposing is simpler, easy to understand, not full of complex wording, and less kilobytes on the article. Since I have not altered important code, why are you reverting good code? — NuclearVacuum 18:32, 11 July 2008 (UTC)
I am familiar with that document. I will also point out the obvious that: neither do you. I have relocated the discussion here: Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Astronomical_objects#Modification_of_starbox_descriptions. Thank you.—RJH (talk) 18:40, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

I have already fixed the issue by putting the snipped description in {{Starboxes}}. Also, I have replied to the talk. If you were only interested in the "snipped wording", why didn't you just say so and mention it to me? — NuclearVacuum 18:47, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

Adding spaces back in list of stars with confirmed extrasolar planets[edit]

I am appreciated that you should add space back between star designations and planet letters in the letter links in planet column in list of stars with confirmed extrasolar planets. I removed spaces in beginning of this month while I added all new planets discovered in previous month after when you've removed spaces between star designation and planet letters by moving the pages and editing some. BlueEarth (talk) 19:17, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

I already placed them back. If I missed a few, I am sorry about that. But some I am not sure to change at all. Some planetary articles (like OGLE-2005-BLG-390Lb and XO-1b to name a few) are insisting on not having a space. This is one of the factors for me, I am unable to say indefinitely on what to do on the spacing issue. I am waiting for a reply from WP:ASTRO, but I would be on the vote of spacing if there is a vote. — NuclearVacuum 20:40, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

Naming extrasolar planets[edit]

I found that you made your own nuclearvacuum wikisite article Extrasolar planet names. That was really good, but you proposed a name for only few planets, but I made up names for 159 extrasolar planets, including six already in use. I never make names to hypothetical planets, but you made three. I feel that I would like to change my extrasolar planet names to proposal names you’ve made up.

Here is the table of named exoplanets I've already made as of 22 July 2008:

BlueEarth (talk) 22:04, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

I never thought of you as the speculation type (go fig). Anyway, these names are pretty interesting. Mind if I ask where these names came from? To me, they don't seem to be mythology (like my proposals). The name you have up here look to be made up. That is amazing, you are like George Lucas, with names at the top of your head. Wunderbar! Also, if you wish to use my names, feel free (thats what they're there for). Also, I simply leave out the hypothetical names, I only save the name for that planet and wait until it is confirmed. Thank you for liking my ideas ^_^ — NuclearVacuum 22:44, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
I made up names to some extrasolar planets, including all planets orbiting Bayer-Flamsteed stars and all important planets. It is unlikely that IAU will officially name extrasolar planets, but it'll might change. That's because there are estimated 1080 billion planets in our Milky Way galaxy, we can't name 'em all, just like for stars. BlueEarth (talk) 21:15, 22 July 2008 (UTC)
I suggest that you should name Epsilon Eridani b and c, 14 Herculis planets, Mu Arae planets, PSR B1257+12 planets and comet, HD 189733 b, Gliese 876 planets, two more planets around Gliese 581, HD 40307 planets, 2M1207b, etc. BlueEarth (talk) 19:14, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
Where did you suggest them? Or are you asking me to do it on my own? I will get to naming these planets in no time. Just give me a few days. — NuclearVacuum 21:25, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

I just had a BIG inspiration. Check it out!NuclearVacuum 22:15, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

I revised 28 extrasolar planet names from made-up names to mythological names:

PSR B1257+12A Kabbalah
Rho Coronae Borealis b Minos

Involve discussion in AFD nominations[edit]

I created five more planetary mass classification articles: sub-Earth, inter-Earth, interplanet, sub-Jupiter, and inter-Jupiter. All articles are nominated for deletion, you should add comment about whether you want to keep, delete, redirect, or merge on these AFD nomination pages. BlueEarth (talk) 22:56, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

Blue, I commented on them. In Layman's terms, I support the article being deleted, but not deleting the article description. Mind if I ask, where did you get these names? If you simply made them up, than you are a very, very clever fellow (I could never thought of anything like that). But I am giving you the benefit of the dough. — NuclearVacuum 23:49, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

I made the names sub-Earth (less than half the Earth-mass) and sub-Jupiter (less than half the Jupiter mass) as the opposites of super-Earth (more than twice the Earth-mass) and super-Jupiter (more than twice the Jupiter-mass). Inter-Earth and inter-Jupiter sits between sub-Earth and super-Earth, and sub-Jupiter and super-Jupiter, respectively. The inter- prefix means 'midway or middle'. Interplanet comes from the meaning 'in the middle of the planetary mass range', which sits between broader planetary masses Earth-class planets and Jupiter-class planets. I would say we should keep at least sub-Earth and sub-Jupiter. BlueEarth (talk) 18:29, 13 August 2008 (UTC)
That's pretty interesting that you could think of that. But sadly, there is a rule on Wikipedia called WP:NOR. I know it sucks, but it is a rule. However, there is nothing wrong with writing it in a sandbox (which I see you already did). Also (if you don't mind me saying), an "interplanet" is already named. They are called Neptunes (which have jovial atmospheres and terrestrial surfaces [somewhat]). — NuclearVacuum 19:53, 14 August 2008 (UTC)


I created my own sandbox yesterday. I had a lot of made-up stuff. You should look at it. BlueEarth (talk) 18:29, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

A new task force under wikiproject Europe[edit]


I've noticed that you are active in the area of Europe. I just wanted to let you know that a European Space Agency task force has been set up to improve the presently very poor condition of articles about ESA and related topics. If you are interested, please join the task force here. We sure could use your help. Thanks.U5K0 (talk) 19:28, 17 August 2008 (UTC)

Oxford Wikimania 2010 and Wikimedia UK v2.0 Notice[edit]


As a regularly contributing UK Wikipedian, we were wondering if you wanted to contribute to the Oxford bid to host the 2010 Wikimania conference. Please see here for details of how to get involved, we need all the help we can get if we are to put in a compelling bid.

We are also in the process of forming a new UK Wikimedia chapter to replace the soon to be folded old one. If you are interested in helping shape our plans, showing your support or becoming a future member or board member, please head over to the Wikimedia UK v2.0 page and let us know. We plan on holding an election in the next month to find the initial board, who will oversee the process of founding the company and accepting membership applications. They will then call an AGM to formally elect a new board who after obtaining charitable status will start the fund raising, promotion and active support for the UK Wikimedian community for which the chapter is being founded.

You may also wish to attend the next London meet-up at which both of these issues will be discussed. If you can't attend this meetup, you may want to watch Wikipedia:Meetup, for updates on future meets.

We look forward to hearing from you soon, and we send our apologies for this automated intrusion onto your talk page!

Article reversions[edit]

Please do not revert edits immediately without explanation, such as you have just done on PSR B1620-26 b (I notice this appears to be a favourite editing strategy of yours). See the WP:OWN policy: you do not own the articles. Please also cite your claims: please provide some evidence that PSR B1620-26 c is the common designation. Note that Google returns more hits for "PSR B1620-26 b" than it does for "PSR B1620-26 c". Icalanise (talk) 20:52, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

First off, I have read that article several times, I think that you should read it yourself because you do not own it either. Secondly, the name "PSR B1620-26 c" is used in science-related references [2][3]m and has been in use for years. — NuclearVacuum 20:57, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
The point is that reverting an article without explanation is tantamount to accusing fellow editors of vandalism. Even before I decided to sign up here under the name Icalanise I learned that it was unwise to put too much work into astronomy-related articles because you kept coming along and doing a revert. Without an edit summary it is difficult for fellow editors to collaborate with you -- it forces others to adopt a "let's hope NuclearVacuum doesn't revert this one" policy without giving any indication of what is so objectionable that it justifies reversion of the entire article.

WP:RUSSIA roll call and your input required[edit]

Privet. You are receiving this message as you were listed on the membership list of WP:RUSSIA at Wikipedia:WikiProject Russia/Members. Recent times has seen minimal activity within WikiProject Russia, and there is an attempt to re-invigorate the project and have it become more organised into a fully-fledge functioning project, with the aim of increasing the quality of Russia-related articles across English wikipedia.

As we don't know which listed members are active within the project and Russia-related article, all listed members are receiving this message, and are requested to re-affirm their active status on Russia-related article by re-adding their username to Wikipedia:WikiProject Russia/Members by adding:


to the membership list. You may also like to place {{User Russian Project}} on your userpage, as this will also place you in Category:WikiProject Russia members.

There is also an active proposal on the creation of a single WP:RUSSIA project. The proposal can be viewed at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Russia#Proposal_for_overhaul_and_creation_of_a_single_WP:RUSSIA_project, and your comments and suggestions are welcomed and encouraged at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Russia/Proposal.

We all look forward to your continued support of WP:RUSSIA and any comments you may have on the proposal. --Russavia Dialogue Stalk me 04:34, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

your great images[edit]

Thank you! I have tagged them with Copy to Wikimedia Commons, where did you find the images? I never saw either, and it's a topic of interest for me. Maybe we can write articles for them, like there is Flag of Russia and so on. Chris (クリス • フィッチ) (talk) 16:14, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

Ooh! I never get grateful messages (I feel loved). To answer your question, I was too amazed to see that the USRB had a flag and coat to show for, but I am not responsible for them. Another user uploaded them to Wikipedia, I simply altered the pics to allow them to fit in the infobox.
As for helping you with articles, I would be happy to help out on that. But because the flag and sear are relatively new, I believe we should hold off on making articles until their is some reliable resources on the Internet to back us up. — NuclearVacuum 16:59, 23 October 2008 (UTC) Chris (クリス • フィッチ) (talk) 23:52, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Extrasolar planet names never been updated for months[edit]

Are you going to add more extrasolar planets names to your article extrasolar planet names again? You never add anymore extrasolar planet names since August 8! BlueEarth (talk) 22:26, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

I am really sorry about that. I have been pretty preoccupied with other stuff (work for one). I promise to have plenty of new names really soon. My next system is the Epsilon Eridani system (since there may be a third planet in there). I gave the three planets names (this was also for a Celestia add-on I am working on). — NuclearVacuum 04:03, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

Your comments are welcome. Beagel (talk) 12:15, 16 May 2009 (UTC)


You recently added this map to German language, but it was removed again because someone thinks your map might be some kind of government plot to make Germany look more important than it actually is ;). While I don't agree with them on this point, I'm a little sceptical about the map's accuracy, too. Even though there are regions in France and Italy where German is spoken, those (Alsace and Bolzano-Bozen) are quite small in comparison to the states they belong to, so saying German is widely spoken and understood in France and Italy might be a bit of an exaggeration. What sources did you use to create the map? --Six words (talk) 14:56, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

I wasn't the person saying that you were "the german government"! Sorry if my words sounded like "making fun" of your map, I never meant to do that. In fact liked it, but just thought it might not be accurate, so I asked for your sources. --Six words (talk) 16:53, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

The Republic of Ireland[edit]

Hi NuclearVacuum,

I'm afriad you've walked into somewhat of a mine field on the Republic of Ireland talk page. This is an extremely controversial issue which has been subject to almost constant debate since Wikipedia began. A recent poll decided to leave the article at Republic of Ireland. I'm removed your proposed move at you inadvertently violated the terms of that poll and a related WP:ARBCOM decision. There is currently a two year moratorium on any moves.

Oh, I had no idea about this. Sorry for that, I'm just ganna walk away slowly. —NuclearVacuum 15:47, 17 October 2009 (UTC)
Not from Wikipedia, I hope. It was a perfectly reasonable proposal being unaware of the specific history. You may be relieved to know that the ArbCom ruling has no bearing whatever on the name of the State, (which continues to be Ireland), just the article title :-) RashersTierney (talk) 17:14, 17 October 2009 (UTC)

EU Army[edit]

Hello, I know this is random, but if the EU had it's own 'super army', would you support that? Thank you (TheGreenwalker (talk) 00:45, 18 November 2009 (UTC))

Define 'super army.' —NuclearVacuum 01:01, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

It means that all EU members as one create an army between them, sharing powers. There have been talks about it and type it in Wikipedia. (TheGreenwalker (talk) 08:27, 18 November 2009 (UTC))

Oh... The term "super army" threw me off. But either way, I would support the EU forming a unified army, just another step towards the USE. —NuclearVacuum 11:02, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

Federal districts[edit]

Please be more careful when reverting edits wholesale as you did to the articles on the federal districts of Russia. The cleanup I performed removed Russian names from the body of the articles, as foreign names should only be included when they are helpful (such as in the article lead or clarifying a red link). Your edits also undid a number of cleanup improvements. If you have concerns with the edits, please bring them to the talk page or at least use the edit summary. Thank you.—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); 15:00, February 1, 2010 (UTC)

Sino-Soviet split 2008.svg[edit]

Hey, just want to bring you to attention of a inaccuracy in the image, which has Cambodia coloured in yellow. This is incorrect as Cambodia has been a democratic constitutional monarchy since 1993. --Joshua Say "hi" to me!What I've done? 17:36, 4 February 2010 (UTC)

Metrication Map[edit]

Hi, Your map on metrication looks good, but may I draw to your attention a few corrections, some of which can be verified here [4]. The following countries adopted the metric system between 1961 and 1980: Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi, Nigeria (shown as unknown), also Ghana, Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania which have incorrect dates. You will notice that these are all British Commonwealth countries in Africa. In addition Angola and Mocambique, being Portugeuse colonies at the time, adopted metrication at the same time as their mother country. Martinvl (talk) 16:38, 10 March 2010 (UTC)

Help with .svg map[edit]

G'day NuclearVacuum, I've had a request for help from User:Arsenikk: he would like to modify File:Europe-Norway.svg to create a map for Svalbard. However, he is unable to ungroup Svalbard from the rest of Norway. Could you please explain how to do this? Thanks, Hayden120 (talk) 14:12, 29 March 2010 (UTC)

Your wiki-site is gone!!!![edit]

Hello again in a long time, I've found that your wiki-site is gone!! What happened to your site, did you intentionally delete it? On January 31, 2009 I created my own wiki-site and currently contains 23 articles. Feel free to look at my articles. BlueEarth (talk | contribs) 02:08, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

OMG, you just scared me there for a sec. Yes, my Wiki-Site is gone, and that is because Wiki-Site sucks. I moved my site to a Wikia format long ago. [5] Also, how have you been? Nice site. —NuclearVacuum 14:22, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
I looked into your articles about Dreugol system and Dazbog that were quite interesting to me. I've never heard of chlorine planets before. Did you made-up those 10 planets around Delta Trianguli system and morphologies of life forms? BlueEarth (talk | contribs) 02:40, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
I added content to the talk page of Dreugol system about those fictional planets might not exist in real life. Also I've seen a lot of spelling errors in several articles about Devon Moore, Dreugol system, planets around Dreugol, and chlorine planet. I would correct it for you, but this site wouldn't let me edit those articles. So you should look at your articles and fix spelling errors, such as in your article Junda where it says a sentence At first glance, the could structure would seem similar to a jovian planet, but there is a solid surface on the bottom of this planet. It should say At first glance, the cloud structure would seem similar to a jovian planet, but there is a solid surface on the bottom of this planet. BlueEarth (talk | contribs) 04:39, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
Um... yeah! If I correctly guess ANY planet around Delta Trianguli, than I would place myself as a candidate for GOD! Yes they are fake, it just sci-fi fun. And I left those articles lock long ago. I may unlock them now that you mention it. —NuclearVacuum 12:47, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
I just went through each of the articles you mentioned, and I found no errors in them. Also, all the articles are open, but I have them open only to users. So if you wish to edit there, just create an account. —NuclearVacuum 12:55, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

Articles for deletion nomination of Cold Jupiter[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

I have nominated Cold Jupiter, an article that you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Cold Neptune. Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time.

Map question[edit]

Regarding File:Equator and Prime Meridian.svg, why is Antartica blue?--it is not a nation. And why is a piece of South America blue?--the Prime Meridian doesn't run through it. BarkingMoon (talk) 00:05, 13 May 2011 (UTC)

Map of Luxembourg[edit]

Hi. I think your idea for a map of Luxembourg, (this one: File:EU-Luxembourg.svg) is good. The problem is that, as you can see here, your enlargement of Luxembourg is actually quite distorted when compared to the actual shape of the country. Would you be able to update the map so that the enlarged section is the country's actual shape? Thanks, Oreo Priest talk 15:40, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

Muammar Gaddafi[edit]

Hey there, I notice you have produced the map showing which states recognize the National Transitional Council. I don't know if you'd be interested, but I have been researching Muammar Gaddafi and can supply you with the countries he's traveled to and supported via military action/financial aid. If you can produce the map, I will give you a barnstar. Let me know what you think. Sincerely, --Screwball23 talk 04:23, 14 August 2011 (UTC)

Ok, I have a comprehensive list of nations he has personally visited - meaning he actually stepped foot in these countries on official state visits. I have references, and believe me, the data backlog that these references would create is extensive :-) I am giving you a list of nations he visited with dates of his visit. For me, it was a fascinating search, and it will definitely benefit the Gaddafi page.

I'll add side notes on all these, because it seems like tanzania and liberia, countries that he invested lots of money in and has tons of supporters, both were not on the list. I was almost shocked to find no evidence he ever visited somalia or eritrea - especially since he was the chairman of the african union. And I've seen countless examples of countries that offered him to come by like greece, north korea, iran, etc, etc., and he would cancel the trips last minute. In any case, if we can paint a map of the countries, tell me how to work out the file, I'll be more than happy. BTW, there is another list I've researched - which is the countries that have had military or financial support from him - but I want to see this one come out first.

Ok, here's the list by year of visit (some have multiple visits, and some - like egypt - probably have undocumented visits because they were so frequent) : algeria 05 austria 02 belarus 08 belarus 11 - highly controversial and speculative - libyan plane spotted belgium 04 benin 08 benin 09 britain 08 burkina faso 00 chad 80 china 82 egypt 89 egypt 89 - many ethiopia 08 france 04 gambia 06 ghana 07 ghana 07 guinea bissau 09 iraq - 70 - several italy 09 ivory coast 09 jordan 1979 kuwait - 79 lebanon - 87 - several liberia 09 liberia 09 malawi 02 malawi 02 malawi 02 mali 04 mauritania 09 morocco 83 mozambique 03 mozambique 03 niger 97, 00 nigeria 97 qatar 09 russia 08 rwanda 85 saudi arabia 74 - several senegal '10 serbia (belgrade, former yugoslavia) 74 sierra leone 07 south africa 99 spain (majorca, not mainland) 84 sri lanka 75 sudan 99 swaziland 02 syria - 81 several togo 00 tunisia 74 uganda 08 ukraine 08 united states 09 venezuela 09 zambia 01 zambia 01 zambia 99 zimbabwe 01

Non-free rationale for File:Nu Pogodi 19.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Nu Pogodi 19.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free 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 tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 12:00, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

Check these out[edit]

You should check out these articles on PlanetStar Wiki. I was formerly BlueEarth. I moved from BlueEarth wiki-site to PlanetStar Wiki on January 23, 2012 since wiki-site was spammed (meaning it often gets blocked after I load pages more than four times in under a minute) and doesn't have many advanced tools and features.

Request for help concerning energy...[edit]


I noticed you listed yourself as a participant of the Energy WikiProject.

There are 2 new outlines in this area that attempt to consolidate Wikipedia's coverage of their respective subjects, gathering and organizing the articles about them into one place and including descriptions for convenience. The purposes of these outlines are to make it easier for readers to survey or review a whole subject, and to choose from Wikipedia's many articles about it.

The new energy outlines are:

Please take a look at them, and....

if you spot missing topics, add them in.
if you can, improve the descriptions.
add missing descriptions.
show parent-offspring relationships (with indents).
fix errors.

For more information about the format and functions of outlines, see Wikipedia:Outlines.

Building outlines of existing material (such as Wikipedia) is called "reverse outlining". Reverse outlines are useful as a revision tool, for identifying gaps in coverage and for spotting poor structuring.

Revising a work with multiple articles (such as Wikipedia) is a little different than revising a paper. But the general principles are the same...

As you develop these outlines, you may notice things about the articles they organize. Like what topics are not adequately covered, better ways to structure and present the material, awkward titles, articles that need splitting, article sections lacking {{Main}} links, etc.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me on my talk page or at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Outlines.

Thank you. Sincerely, The Transhumanist 00:53, 2 June 2012 (UTC)
