Wikipedia_talk:Citing_sources#Straw_Poll[edit]

This relates to the text on the placement of footnotes which you helped to work out last month; you may wish to comment. Septentrionalis PMAnderson 16:08, 24 July 2007 (UTC)

Btw, it's a good idea to create your user page; even "Hello, world", as long as it's not a tedlink. You msy lose some of the special protection supposedly given to newbies, but your opinion will get more respect. Septentrionalis PMAnderson 16:08, 24 July 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Blanky group logo.png)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Blanky group logo.png. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media 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 media 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 all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BetacommandBot (talk) 20:35, 15 December 2007 (UTC)

Amount of substance[edit]

Hi, thanks for the work you're doing to make this article more readable. However, I think you're falling into a common trap, that of equating amount of substance with its common unit, the mole. Amount of substance is a much older concept in chemistry, older even than atomic theory! Twelve grams of hydrogen will always react with 96 grams of oxygen to form water, no matter what units you use to measure amount of substance. Similarly, the Avogadro constant has very little to do with amount of substance as such, it is a function of the system of units which you use. It's a little bit like saying that the distance between London and New York doesn't change if you measure it in miles or kilometres, although the figures ("numerical value") will be different. The reason we don't use plain numbers for amount of substance is exactly the same reason that you don't count the electrons running though your computer while you edit Wikipedia – you couldn't! It was also be wrong in the measurement sense, as you don't measure a "number of electrons" or a "number of molecules": you measure a different quantity which theory assures you is proportional. I don't want to discourage you from trying to improve the article, but there is much that you are adding which is irrelevant, for not to say downright wrong.

Water condensation in lift-induced vortices[edit]

Hello Reuqr,

I am currently working on the Wingtip vortices article and there is a long part on water condensation that I am proposing to remove. It seems that you are the person who added this text, so I would much appreciate your input regarding this, on the article talk page.

Thank you for your attention, and all the best, Ariadacapo (talk) 19:05, 7 September 2012 (UTC)
