Ryan - Welcome to Wikipedia ! I notice you have made quite a number of edits moving a full stop from within <math>...</math> tags to place it outside of the tags. In Wikipedia:How to write a Wikipedia article on Mathematics it says

It is good style to put a period at the end of a formula, if that formula is at the end of a sentence. If the formula is written in LaTeX, that is, surrounded by the <math> and </math> tags, then the period must be also inside the tags, because otherwise the period can get badly misaligned.

so there is a good reason why the full stops are placed inside the tags. Perhaps you might think about reverting your edits ? Gandalf61 11:54, July 22, 2005 (UTC)

Sorry[edit]

The fem-nazis on that page deleted my well written "Defense" second that at least gave the article a small feel of neutrality. So i'll probably continue to screw with them. This is a lab computer so banning it really wont accomplish anything. Thanks and sorry.

Sorry...[edit]

Sorry, I was un-aware of that. Will do so imediatly :)

Cheers,

RyanJ

Welcome from me too. I reverted the other places where you put the period out. By the way, can you take a look at the current version of Hectagon, and the one you modified, which is this one? It indeed looks to me that the period shows up much better if put inside of the math tags rather than outside. On my screen, the version with the period out (second one) has the period kind of tiny and half a space to the right which looks rather unnatural. Would you agree with that? Oleg Alexandrov 16:25, 24 July 2005 (UTC)

I agree.[edit]

I do agree 100% - I just thought that they were not supposed to have been there - notmally in formula images they are not present, I suppose I should have read the rules more carefully.

Cheers,

RyanJ

Character encoding problems[edit]

This edit appears to have replaced some of the interlanguage links with question marks. Do you have any idea why that happened? —Keenan Pepper 01:52, 17 March 2006 (UTC)

That is wierd! The problem seems to have disappeared since I did another edit - can someone confirm that?


RyanJ: It could be I do not have the correct character sets installed and so its showing them as question marks and saving them as such. I have no idea but thats the only reason I can think of. Ryan Jones 10:20, 17 March 2006 (UTC)

Welcome from the WikiChemists[edit]

Hi Ryan, Welcome to the chemistry WikiProject, I hope you'll become a regular editor. The chem folks here are pretty friendly and helpful, so don't be afraid to ask for help (Wim is our expert on hydrochloric acid, by the way). We coordinate much of our work on chemical compounds through the worklist, and we're getting a more general one started at WP:Chemistry too. I have a few useful chem pages listed on my talk page.

I love the Welsh valleys, by the way, I have a little Davis blood in me myself. Cheers, Walkerma 04:47, 17 March 2006 (UTC)

Your proposed additions to the WP:Chem worklist[edit]

Hello Ryan, thanks for participating in the work of the Chemicals wikiproject. We have determined quite some time ago a formally established worklist, to achieve the GOAL of the wikiproject. So, there are no simple additions to the worklist accepted. If you have another chemical that you deem important enough to also be on the the worklist (out of the 4000 in Wikipedia!!!), please use the wikipedia talk:WikiProject Chemicals for proposing the addition or replacement of another chemical currently in the worklist. I have removed your text additions from the worklist. Please don't take a personal affront, as none is intended. Please use the talk page for giving good argument to after all get the chemicals on the worklist. Wim van Dorst (Talk) 17:03, 18 March 2006 (UTC).

Hi, thanks for the nifty drawing of arsine. Of course, bismuthine, stibine, phosphine (some of my pets) adopt the same structure.--Smokefoot 15:04, 19 March 2006 (UTC)

chembox table[edit]

Hi Ryan, you're making good progress in making tables according to the WP:Chem worklist. A simple recommendation is to make a stub page for those compounds and then add the table to it. But more importantly, may I kindly recommend that you use the standard chembox, by using {{subst:chembox}} for each empty table? The chembox has been designed very carefully, and we would like the WP:Chem to stick to it. Wim van Dorst (Talk) 20:04, 20 March 2006 (UTC).

Can do - will use that template instead :)
Ryan Jones 20:08, 20 March 2006 (UTC)

I have writen no nonsense on Wikipedia. Do not make stupid comments like this with out backing them up. A bit of info please? What nonsense have I added? People will take you more seriously if you do just that.

Very hard for me to reply when you do not state the page or your username. If it was a vandalism notice then it could have been someone else using your computer / had the same IP address. Ryan Jones 10:06, 1 April 2006 (UTC)

Please decategorize your subpage[edit]

Your subpage RyanJones/InorganicList contains category links which causes it to be shown on that category page. --JeffW 03:20, 10 April 2006 (UTC)

Missed that. Commented out the cat. refs untill the page is done. Ryan Jones 09:53, 10 April 2006 (UTC)
Thanks. And when you finish the page, could you use Category:Chemistry lists instead of Category:Science-related lists? --JeffW 13:27, 10 April 2006 (UTC)
Yes I will do that, thanks for the suggestion. Ryan Jones 17:27, 10 April 2006 (UTC)

RC patrol script[edit]

If you are trying to install that, make sure that is under /skinname where skinname is the skin you are using, they are always lowercase and have no spaces.Voice-of-AllTalk 23:32, 24 May 2006 (UTC)

WikiProject Furry[edit]

Looking for something to do? WikiProject Furry is improving articles on furry and anthropomorphic topics, and we'd like to have you on board.

Our current goal is to raise Anthrocon, furry convention and furry fandom to good article status and beyond - but if that doesn't take your fancy, there are plenty of other articles to work on. Give it a go and let us know how you're doing!

You received this one-time invitation because you are a Furry Wikipedian. GreenReaper 23:15, 28 July 2007 (UTC)

SFN (scienceforums.net)[edit]

The article SFN (scienceforums.net) has been speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This was done because the article seemed to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it did not indicate how or why the subject is notable, that is, why an article about that subject should be included in Wikipedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not assert notability may be deleted at any time. If you can indicate why the subject is really notable, you are free to re-create the article, making sure to cite any verifiable sources.

Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, and for specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for musicians, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. -Wafulz 17:14, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

WP:CVU status[edit]

The Wikipedia:Counter-Vandalism Unit project is under consideration to be moved to {{inactive}} and/or {{historical}} status. Another proposal is to delete or redirect the project. You have been identified as a project member and your input as to this matter would be welcomed at WT:CVU#Inactive.3F and at the deletion debate. Thank you!

Speedy deletion of Image:Arsenic acid.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Image:Arsenic acid.png requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section I1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image is redundant copy (all pixels the same or scaled down) of an image in the same file format, which is on Wikipedia (not on Commons), and all inward links have been updated.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on [[ Talk:Image:Arsenic acid.png|the talk page]] explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being 'minor'. The only thing that's changed is that you will no longer have them marked as minor by default.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. If you are familiar with the contents of WP:MINOR, and believe that it is still beneficial to the encyclopedia to have all your edits marked as such by default, then this discussion will give you the details you need to continue with this functionality indefinitely. If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 18:32, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Invitation to events: template makers & LaTeX experts like you wanted[edit]

Hi, Ryan!

I thought you might want to know about some upcoming events where you can learn more about MediaWiki customization and development, extending functionality with JavaScript, the future of ResourceLoader and Gadgets, the new Lua templating system, how to best use the web API for bots, and various upcoming features and changes. We'd love to have power users, bot maintainers and writers, and template makers at these events so we can all learn from each other and chat about what needs doing. Your interest in the math-related code would make you especially valuable, if you could attend. We don't have enough people working on the tex-related parts of MediaWiki right now and could use your advice and help.

Check out the Chennai event in March, the Berlin hackathon in June, the developers' days preceding Wikimania in July in Washington, DC, or any other of our events.

MediaWiki is also applying for Google Summer of Code 2012 this year, in case you're eligible and interested in applying. It would provide a paid summer internship to work on open source software.

Best wishes! - Sumana Harihareswara, Wikimedia Foundation's Volunteer Development Coordinator. Please reply on my talk page, here or at mediawiki.org. —Preceding undated comment added 15:02, 16 February 2012 (UTC).
