Welcome to Wikipedia![edit]

Hello Oni Lukos, welcome to Wikipedia!

Here are some tips:

If you feel a change is needed, feel free to make it yourself! Wikipedia is a wiki, so anyone (yourself included) can edit any article by following the Edit this page link. Wikipedia convention is to be bold and not be afraid of making mistakes. If you're not sure how editing works, have a look at How to edit a page, or try out the Sandbox to test your editing skills.

If, for some reason, you are unable to fix a problem yourself, feel free to ask someone else to do it. Wikipedia has a vibrant community of contributors who have a wide range of skills and specialties, and many of them would be glad to help. As well as the wiki community pages there are IRC Channels, where you are more than welcome to ask for assistance.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask me on my talk page. Thanks and happy editing, Alphax τεχ 04:54, 19 Jun 2005 (UTC)

reply[edit]

Hi, do you mean you have seen this happen to a lot of pages editted by my program? or just in general?, plus I know it is a lack of unicode support, but I dont know why it affects some (very few) users and not others, maybe its because they have windows 98. Martin 13:19, 29 December 2005 (UTC)

I've seen it on multiple pages where it first arose after an edit by a your program, and I knew what had occurred by past experience. If your program has Unicode support, then it means it must be their computer lacking it. You should find a way to find if a computer lacks that support and a way to circumvent it...(or, at least a warning when they're editting a page with Unicode on it). ~ Oni Lukos ct 13:42, 29 December 2005 (UTC)

Re: Pinball 95[edit]

My copy of Pinball 95 came as part of a Maxis software package (The Ultimate Family Collection) that also contained SimCity 2000, SimTown and Marty and the Trouble with Cheese, with all four games presented on one CD. The edition of Pinball 95 contains all three tables, plus a brief FMV introduction. I got it many, many years ago and am unaware of its origins, but I'm pretty sure it's authentic. I'll see if I can dig up the packaging and take a few screenshots to prove my case. Ppk01 14:37, 3 August 2006 (UTC)

I suppose it would be best to further discuss this matter on said talk page.
To answer your query, Marty and the Trouble with Cheese is a "Maxis Software Toy for Kids™" which involved faux voice-recognition technologies requiring children to make some-kind-of-noise into a microphone at certain parts of the same ol' story. No matter which microphone you used, it took ages to get working correctly and had the annoying tendency to change your audio settings without telling you.[1] Ppk01 15:18, 3 August 2006 (UTC)

void main[edit]

Hey, I noticed you changed an int main() to a void. I reverted that edit because void main isn't legal c, or c++ for that matter. Heres a nice explanation: [2]. The thing is, main always returns 0 by default - even when you don't tell it to. some compilers allow void main, but its not part of the c standard. Fresheneesz 07:50, 16 October 2006 (UTC)

Huh, I never knew that. I swear, though, that I saw void main on the List of hello world programs page several months ago. I just assumed that leaving out the return was invalid with the function declared as an int, seeing as it would be for any other function. ~ Oni Lukos ct 20:23, 16 October 2006 (UTC)

Concerning Full Tilt Pinball/3D Pinball Space Cadet[edit]

Why did you undo my edit? I was going to add more information... Isn't the point of Wikipedia and editing articles to expand them? I am a fairly new user, so if you have an explanation, put it on my talk page.

Thanks, JIMOTHY46 18:50, 31 December 2006 (UTC)

P.S. I love 3D Pinball Space Cadet! I'm in the middle of a game right now!


Thank you for the information. It's nice to know there are some nice people out in the world! JIMOTHY46 00:00, 6 January 2007 (UTC)

Image:Umddisc.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Umddisc.jpg. I notice the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the image description page and edit it to add {{Replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original Replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or a similar) image under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that any fair use images which are replaceable by free-licensed alternatives 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. Roofus 18:28, 15 April 2007 (UTC)

Adventure Time[edit]

I have edited it as you have advised, and it still fails the guideline. It only has a plot summary and a couple awards. It a slightly popular cartoon that cannot be improved any further, so it should be redirected. TTN 19:36, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

This belongs more on the talk page for Adventure Time and not on my talk page, so I'll just quote your comment and continue the discussion there. ~ Oni Lukos ct 19:41, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image (Image:Sonic99.jpg)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Sonic99.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image 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 images 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 any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BetacommandBot 02:45, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:121mina.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:121mina.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

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. Videmus Omnia Talk 02:33, 4 August 2007 (UTC)

Image:Civ01.png[edit]

I have tagged Image:Civ01.png as {{no rationale}}, because it does not provide a fair use rationale. If you believe the image to be acceptable for fair use according to Wikipedia policy, please provide a rationale explaining as much, in accordance with the fair use rationale guideline, on the image description page. Please also consider using {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair_use. Thank you. Rettetast 10:11, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

PlayStation Portable homebrew[edit]

I know it was; but the person did not provide a valid reference (and I couldn't remember where I saw it as I was at school when I found out about it) and the person also striked through text that was already there. I removed it for someone else to properly cite it. Thanks. =D --GSK 03:01, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

Brown University Science Library[edit]

You have removed architectural commentary on the Brown University Science Library as "unnecesary". I beg to differ. Any article on any building in existence by necessity has mentioned in it anything notable about that building. The context of a 1970s 15-story Brutalist appearing in a mixed residential/commercial set of two-story colonials and shopfronts is absolutely notable, and most importantly, not original research because of the presence of scholarly published material.--Loodog 00:42, 11 October 2007 (UTC)

Wrong article. Put this on the discussion page of the article you linked to. ~ Oni Lukos ct 00:56, 11 October 2007 (UTC)

UMD caption[edit]

wtf? yes UMD starts with a vowel hence the correct grammar is "an UMD" not "a UMD" (just like in French with "un") so why do you keep it spelled the wrong way ?? Cliché Online (talk) 11:35, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

You're wrong. The word "user" starts with a vowel, but you say "a user" because it doesn't start with a vowel sound (like how UMD doesn't start with a vowel sound). The word "hour" doesn't start with a vowel, but you say "an hour" because it starts with a vowel sound. It depends on the first phoneme of the word, not the first letter. ~ Oni Lukos ct 14:35, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

Image:Anime eye.svg[edit]

Hi, I think Image:Anime eye.svg is very neat. However, I think it will be even neater if you use a blur filter. Do you agree? I think Image:Mahuri.svg can provide some hints, if you open it up in recent builds (such as the 0.46 prerelease) of Inkscape. --Kjoonlee 21:13, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

List of characters in Courage the Cowardly Dog[edit]

You've been here long enough to be able to understand WP:RS and WP:V. This ref fails every possible test for WP:RS. Since you're being pretty stubborn about it, I won't revert you, but FWIW, I'm not the only one to dispute this. And also FWIW, obvious to you is not obvious to me. Not having any clue who "Quentin Tarantino" is (and I looked him up afterwards, and still not convinced), my obvious assumeption is that is tarantula. Yngvarr (t) (c) 09:09, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

See, I only reverted your change once, and then added the best citation I could find. If you call that stubborn, I don't know what you're thinking. Those other reversions were NOT ME. I never edit "anonymously". I know the citation is not a good one, however, a better source does not exist because, quite frankly, what reliable source would write something like that? Yes, I know, verifiability, not truth. However, my point is that, for cartoons, reliable sources exist for virtually none of the content that exists on Wikipedia. And yet the content is still here. Additionally, not knowing who Quentin Tarantino is makes it non-obvious to you simply because you lack the context. If you knew who he was, it really is clearly a parody of him, as he is a well-known filmmaker, the first name is almost homophonous, and the last name is remarkably similar. Is this a better source? Perhaps this? Or this one, which may cite Wikipedia? No, I don't really think any of those are reliable either! Additionally, tarantella means something other than tarantula.

About "Oukami" "Ookami".[edit]

That's because the official title of the game uses the Kanji "大神", "Ōkami", while the Kanji in that section is "狼" which is pronounced completely different. It's not "O-kaa-mii", it's "O-o-kā-mī" "Ookami". There are large differences in Japanese "oo" and Japanese "ou". Moocowsrule (talk) 04:38, 13 November 2008 (UTC)moocowsrule

Yes, I know there are large differences between "ou" and "oo", but neither 大神 nor 狼 have an "ou". They are both おおかみ. Also, why is this on my talk page and not on the talk page where it is relevant? Λύκος 07:43, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
I dunno. Just felt like putting it here... Sorry bout that, I was tired and forgot that "大神" was a compound. It would be "Ookami" not "Oukami". But usually when there's a double o sound, it's not written as "ō", but as "oo". ムーカオーズルール 03:05, 17 November 2008 (UTC)moocowsrule

December 2008[edit]

How was reverting mt edit to Angry Beavers constructive? Did you even see that episode? FreedomFighter112290 (talk) 16:55, 29 December 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, I've seen that episode. However, it's a minor character detail that pertains to only one episode, and therefore should be constrained to the episode summary, if even relevant enough to the episode. Λύκος 17:12, 29 December 2008 (UTC)
Then why's there even a mention of the character, nitwit? FreedomFighter112290 (talk) 03:53, 30 December 2008 (UTC)
WP:CIVIL, please. He's in more than one episode. Λύκος 05:52, 30 December 2008 (UTC)
The fact that he was devoured and killed off shows you're wrong, as minor characters on other pages have mention of their death. You're just defending the character because his last name is "Licking" and probably can't help yourself. FreedomFighter112290 (talk) 16:05, 30 December 2008 (UTC)
You can stop grasping at straws now. It's not really helping your argument. That or you're just trying to troll me, and failing miserably. Λύκος 17:13, 30 December 2008 (UTC)
Neither, but really, theres nothing wrong with mentioning a character was killed, it was kind of unusual. FreedomFighter112290 (talk) 22:50, 30 December 2008 (UTC)
