Wikipedia:WikiProject Cricket[edit]

I see you have recently contributed to the article cricket. May I invite you to a new WikiProject to improve the quality and depth of cricket articles on Wikipedia. It's located on Wikipedia:WikiProject Cricket. I'm taking the approach of let's see who's interested and let's see which bits we want to improve/expand to begin with. Once we know that, hopefully we can work together to improve Wikipedia's cricket coverage. jguk 16:30, 4 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Merge template[edit]

I wholly disagree. Furthermore it doesn't say anywhere on the Duplicate articles page that the merge template is exclusively for this use. I've seen it used very successfully to incorporate related smaller articles under a single umbrella topic. While I will acknowledge that the Polgara the Sorceress article happens to be fleshed out enough to stand alone (if stand alone it must, even if it would make more sense to put it with the other Eddings characters) it is the only exception among the various Belgariad/Malloreon character articles. Really they should all be put in the Belgariad under a Characters heading with subsets and referred to in the Malloreon article.

LOL--I didn't disagree about Polgara. I merely disagreed about the use of the merge template.

stijfburgerlijkheid is dutch?[edit]

Jeez...I was going to remove that too before I realized it had some germanic roots and decided to look in the history. That gave me quite a laugh. — Ilγαηερ (Tαlκ) 20:08, 17 July 2005 (UTC)

Page name for temperature articles[edit]

To avoid flip-flopping between 'degree Fahrenheit' and 'Fahrenheit' or 'degree Celsius' and 'Celsius', I propose that we have a discussion on which we want. I see you have contributed on units of measurement, please express your opinion at Talk:Units of measurement. Thanks. bobblewik 22:48, 12 February 2006 (UTC)

Use case[edit]

Um, Thanks for fixing my botch! I can't understand what I did there. Scratching my head... --Ligulem 13:58, 17 May 2006 (UTC)


Thanks for the note: see Talk:The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

MedCab Case: Shia Islam[edit]

I filled out the template for your MedCab Case: Shia Islam. I removed the anonymous ip addresses as parties as there would be no way to mediate a discussion with an anonymous party. If you wish to proceed with this informal and voluntary mediation I will require the consent of yourself and atleast one other party. To consent to my mediation of your case, please edit the case page discussion section, state you wish to proceed with as your mediator and sign your name. 15:40, 20 January 2007 (UTC)

Namez 2007[edit]

User:Namez 2007 is just the latest ever-morphing alias of the "Iraqi dinar" vandal (see Talk:Rafida for probably more than you want to know). He's certainly not going to discuss anything with you, if he keeps to his behavior with respect to Rafida... AnonMoos 09:00, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Medieval Total War.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Medieval Total War.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. 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 it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. Project FMF (talk) 17:03, 12 January 2008 (UTC)


Thanks for tabulating that. I always thought that was getting a bit of an exhaustive list, of kinda "what is not QED in other languages". Your treatment is good, there. I still think it somewhat bizarre to define something by what it is not, but that will have to wait, yours is a good first step.

A couple more puzzles for you, and very much thanks for AGF Si Trew (talk) 08:15, 4 March 2010 (UTC)

Yeah I was worried too that I had cut it back too much. More at my talk page. Si Trew (talk) 08:30, 4 March 2010 (UTC)


What was wrong with the jpg image I uploaded before? Why was it replaced with a png version? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Quillaja (talkcontribs) 07:04, 2 July 2010 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Epub logo color.png[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:Epub logo color.png. 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 "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 images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Quibik (talk) 18:58, 14 October 2010 (UTC)

Followup RFC to WP:RFC/AAT now in community feedback phase[edit]

Hello. As a participant in Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Abortion article titles, you may wish to register an opinion on its followup RFC, Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Abortion advocacy movement coverage, which is now in its community feedback phase. Please note that WP:RFC/AAMC is not simply a repeat of WP:RFC/AAT, and is attempting to achieve better results by asking a more narrowly-focused, policy-based question of the community. Assumptions based on the previous RFC should be discarded before participation, particularly the assumption that Wikipedia has or inherently needs to have articles covering generalized perspective on each side of abortion advocacy, and that what we are trying to do is come up with labels for that. Thanks! —chaos5023 20:31, 24 October 2012 (UTC)

Regular star polygons[edit]

Regular convex and star polygons with 3 to 12 vertices labelled with their Schläfli symbols

Hi Perey,

I really like your work on File:Regular_Star_Polygons-en.svg, especially the diagonal lines linking those derived from the same primitive, so hope you don't mind that I updated it as on the right:

  1. Swapping rows and columns lets me fit more n along with Schläfli symbols without it being too tall.
  2. Colour-coding polygons consisting of multiple "parts".
  3. Shading the background of those derived from the same primitive.
  4. Adding a legend to avoid cluttering up the main graphic and filling up the empty space.

I also think that ordering them in increasing q shows highlights the more interesting star polygons — those with higher q look very similar, just sharper corners.

I've reduced n to 12 as I think the stars appear more and more similar as n increases. 12 is also a multiple of 2, 3 and 4. Lastly, I won't need as many different background shades.

Please let me know if you've any thoughts on this.

@Cmglee: It would be rather mean of me to complain about your version, since (a) all I did was port an existing image to SVG (and take the opportunity to add a few more convex polygons), and (b) you do such fantastic work! (No false flattery—I found myself browsing through your user page before replying here, and periodically going "hey, it's that image" or "hey, I wish I'd seen that image before".) Your image manages to give both more information and more clarity, and I wholeheartedly approve. -- Perey (talk) 12:01, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for your very kind words, Perey. It's feedback like yours that maintains my interest in contributing to Wikipedia :-) I'm also impressed with the work you've done on Commons, thanks especially for fixing "Crises" on File:Moon_names.svg cmɢʟeeτaʟκ 12:45, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
