Welcome to Wikipedia![edit]

Hi Rdore, and welcome to Wikipedia! I hope that you enjoy editing this encyclopedia. Don't be afraid of being bold and making changes. In particular, I'd like to encourage you to make whatever changes you think are needed on German-style board game.

I'm no wiki expert, but feel free to drop me a line on my talk page if you have any questions. You can also ask questions on the Wikipedia:Village pump. Have fun! --Millsdavid 00:57, 6 August 2005 (UTC)

  • I'm not sure where you're from, but your comment that BDL is not usually attributed to Springfield is incorrect. I'm not going to change it back, but just so you know it is commonly called Hartford/Springfield International. Dbinder 21:54, 22 August 2005 (UTC)
    • Fair enough. Dbinder 01:44, 23 August 2005 (UTC)

CHO[edit]

Hi Rdore--

I am curious to know as to why you find it necessary to edit an airport's flight destinations and to make it more confusing for the reader. --StevenL 20:43, 2 September 2005 (UTC)

Because that's the format most airport articles following. It also more accurately describes what airline actuallys owns the flights, pays pilots, etc. Rdore 23:52, 2 September 2005 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:EKO airport map.gif[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:EKO airport map.gif. However, the image may soon be deleted unless we can determine the copyright holder and copyright status. The Wikimedia Foundation is very careful about the images included in Wikipedia because of copyright law (see Wikipedia's Copyright policy).

The copyright holder is usually the creator, the creator's employer, or the last person who was transferred ownership rights. Copyright information on images is signified using copyright templates. The three basic license types on Wikipedia are open content, public domain, and fair use. Find the appropriate template in Wikipedia:Image copyright tags and place it on the image page like this: {{TemplateName}}.

Please signify the copyright information on any other images you have uploaded or will upload. Remember that images without this important information can be deleted by an administrator. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. Thank you. -- Longhair 10:19, 1 February 2006 (UTC)

I got that image from the FAA website. I was of the belief that images produced by the FAA are public domain. I don't know how that is supposed to be signified exactly though. Rdore 15:55, 1 February 2006 (UTC)

Image Tagging for Image:BTV_airport_map.gif[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:BTV_airport_map.gif. The image page currently doesn't specify who created the image, so the copyright status is therefore unclear. If you have not created the image yourself then you need to indicate why we have the right to use the image on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the image yourself then you should also specify where you found it, i.e., in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the image also doesn't have a copyright tag then you must also add one. If you created/took the picture then you can use {{GFDL}} to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the image qualifies under Wikipedia's fair use guidelines, please read fair use, and then use a tag such as {{Non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair_use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use. If you want the image to be deleted, tag it as {{db-unksource}}.

If you have uploaded other images, please check that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, 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 unsourced and untagged images will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

three forms of mathematical induction[edit]

Perhaps something in this article belong in Complete induction, but other than that it seems to be a bunch of howto and examples, and gets hung up on the point of whether the base case of an induction is vacuous (which might deserve one sentence in the induction article). Rdore 00:08, 12 March 2006 (UTC)

How in the world does anyone manage to see this as a "how to"?? It skips details precisely because it is NOT a how-to. There is NO mention of whether the base case is vacuous in the examples, but rather only in the case of complete induction, where it explains why the base case is always vacuous. In all three examples, the base case is asserted to be the substantial part--as far from vacuous as you can get. Michael Hardy 03:17, 12 March 2006 (UTC)

Image Tagging for Image:SLC_airport_map.gif[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:SLC_airport_map.gif. The image has been identified as not specifying the source and creator of the image, which is required by Wikipedia's policy on images. If you don't indicate the source and creator of the image on the image's description page, it may be deleted some time in the next seven days. If you have uploaded other images, please verify that you have provided source information for them as well.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

German-style board game[edit]

Hi! You recently contributed to a discussion about re-titling German-style board game. I though it might interest you to know I've put the article up at Requested moves to be moved to Designer game. If you're interested, I'd welcome yuor input at Talk:German-style board game. Percy Snoodle 13:48, 29 June 2006 (UTC)

RE:Deletion of Talk:The Game (game)[edit]

I deleted the talk page because all that was going on was a debate between one user and several others about "why was this page deleted", "why can't we recreate this page" ect. The talk page of a deleted article is not the place to discuss such things. The place is WP:DRV, which already endorsed deletion if I remember correctly. -Royalguard11(Talk·Desk·Review Me!) 17:32, 27 January 2007 (UTC)
