Cello

Ok, It's you're turn. I go to bed ;) have fun ;) (and look for the last edit: I removed some of you're work!) mabdul 23:46, 27 March 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the expansion! Ye...I'll make sure nothing gets lost=P. This site: http://ftp.wayne.edu/ibiblio-academic/communications/cmc-list/internet-tools.html#Cello says that Cello's source code was available...but I haven't been able to find it. Perhaps I'll email the cornell university to see if they're willing to put it up.Smallman12q (talk) 00:08, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
LOL, ok now I will go to bed. but read this: http://www.law.cornell.edu/comments.html#CELLOINFO there was a version 2 and the source! mabdul 00:32, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
Oh didn't see that...I will send them an email and see if they are willing to release the code...would make for a great sourceforge project=D. Thanks!Smallman12q (talk) 00:36, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for helping me out...I've nominated Cello for DYK.Smallman12q (talk) 15:43, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
Have you finished that article? I mean there is enough work at that moment! How about adding some browser statistics? yahoo has some online in the way back maschine ;) cello wasn't the first web browser which was released for win! tht was viola, so I would change the nominee for DYK. hveyousennthat page: [1]? Have you got an answer on you're mail? mabdul 16:22, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
I believe the article topic is fairly well covered...as for the website stats, I'll add an annotation for them thanks for that link. I believe you are getting X Windows and Microsoft Windows confused. X Windows was designed as a GUI to Unix much like Windows 3.1 was essentially a GUI to MSDOS. It states this at the following links:

I have sent an to cornell asking for for earlier releases to be put into evolt, and also suggesting that they consider open-sourcing Cello. I'll also send an email to network world asking if there is a link to that interview.

Thanks again mabdul for helping me rewrite this article.Smallman12q (talk) 16:42, 28 March 2010 (UTC)

mmh, oh seems right. mmh, maybe i over read this... I'm glad that I could help you ;) Next week I won't have time to investigate time to wikipedia! mabdul 18:22, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
please help me and explain what Citation bot exactly does?(I didn't find any short summary on his "profil page") mabdul 22:26, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
It's a bot for correcting Doi and journal entries. You can find information on it at User:Citation_bot, User:Citation_bot/use, and at http://toolserver.org/~verisimilus/Bot/DOI_bot/ . (I use it with Snip Manager.) I hope this helps.Smallman12q (talk) 20:29, 29 March 2010 (UTC)

I've looked at the barque web browser and unfortunately, there simply isn't enough coverage/downloads for it to warrant its own article. It would not survive an AFD. It can however, be included in a list of browsers when I get around to that. Fizzilla is interesting...an article could be written on it (when I get more time)...but I'm not really a Mac person...I'll get around to writing an article for it. For now, I'm going to try and expand the articles for The International World Wide Web Conferences Steering Committee, the World Wide Web Conference, and create articles for the dozen conferences...these conferences are the largest web conferences...and it seems wikipedia doesn't have any articles on them.=( Cello is still sitting in DYK...and I haven't received a reply from Thomas Bruce...yet. If I do get a reply from Thomas Bruce...I may be able to fetch enough details to make the article qualify for as a GA (WP:Good Article) I'll be on and off this week...if there's anything you need help on, let me know.Smallman12q (talk) 23:42, 29 March 2010 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:FrameGang_screenshot.gif)

Resolved: Smallman12q (talk) 23:28, 14 April 2010 (UTC)

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:FrameGang_screenshot.gif. 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 '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 all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Melesse (talk) 23:24, 14 April 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Framgang logo.gif

Resolved: Self-nominated.Smallman12q (talk) 00:57, 15 April 2010 (UTC)
Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on File:Framgang logo.gif requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image is an unused 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 that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page 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 page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

About your Admin Coaching request

User talk

Your submission at Admin Coaching has been removed from the request list, as requests where the submitter has not visited the page for at least 6 months (or been inactive for at least 4 months) are removed.

You are welcome to re-submit a request should you wish to, but please note that you are expected to regularly check the page (and to update the "last visited" field of your request) to show your continued interest in the project. If you do re-submit, please carefully re-read the instructions for submission as they may have changed since you last visited!

As noted on the project page, there is an on-going backlog with the project, as so few admins are currently coaching. This means that you may have a long wait for a response (if you receive one at all).

If you no longer require admin coaching, I hope that you continue to enjoy editing Wikipedia!

RE:Non-free image question

Hi. I saw the question you posted at Portal talk:Video games.

Typically there's no reason to include the rear of a box. The most identifying aspect of the box art is the front cover. Anything more would be unnecessary and push the boundaries for WP:NFCC. If you have more questions about video game images, check out WP:VGIMAGES on the Wikipedia:WikiProject Video games' article guidelines, or post at the project's talk page.

I wasn't even aware there was an early web history task force. It seems they merged into WikiProject Websites which also appears to have stalled=(. As for websurfer...I do remember some of those ads. There were ~200 or so "worthwhile" browsers...Wikipedia barely covers them.

Floppy disk pics

By the way, just letting you know I haven't forgotten about those shots.

citation tool

hi smallman12q, looks like we're working on something very similar, do you know ubiquity (software)? ive made a pretty comprehensive citation tool that hasn't got any attention around here yet. thoughts? cheers:) Spencerk (talk) 04:40, 17 May 2010 (UTC)

Seems interesting. I've looked at the source and it does offer coverage on a few news sources. I can't get it to work with my firefox 3.6. Could you tell me which firefox version and ubiquity version to use?
I'd also like to suggest that you create a firefox add-on...it would offer more options. The best solution, however, would be some kind of bot. Interesting tool though...its basically what i had in mind.Smallman12q (talk) 11:55, 17 May 2010 (UTC)

GIMP question

Beowulf and the dragon.jpg

Hi, I forgot to ask, in response to your instructions whether I can run GIMP on a MAC? I have another image that might benefit from your particular brand of magic. Thanks. Truthkeeper88 (talk) 00:20, 20 May 2010 (UTC)

A mac user=P. You can run GIMP on Mac with GIMP for Mac OS X ports. The image is a bit blurry...but I guess thats for effect. Great job on Hemingway btw, there aren't many people left that appreciate that type of work anymore.Smallman12q (talk) 13:31, 20 May 2010 (UTC)
It requires the Window layer which I'd prefer not to put on my machine (which I was afraid of). Thanks for the information though, and for the image clean-up, and for the compliment about Hemingway. It does seem to be true that Hemingway is losing popularity fast. Truthkeeper88 (talk) 20:10, 20 May 2010 (UTC)
Did you check this one? (I haven't used a mac since the jaguar or puma version). You're doing an excellent job on expanding and cleaning up some of the classic works...Beowulf being the 1st epic is certainly important ^.^. When I get the time, I plan to expand several works myself including Tadeusz Borowski's This Way for the Gas, Ladies and Gentlemen, Dosteyevsky's Notes from Underground, and several of Emerson's essays. As for the image clean-up, I'll try and write a bot for that...basically it would download all the pictures in a category then auto-white balance, and re-upload...shouldn't be too difficult. Cheers! Smallman12q (talk) 02:04, 21 May 2010 (UTC)
I haven't even looked at Dosteyevsky or Emerson - love both writers. I've had Beowulf watched, and it's such a good change from Hemingway that I'm enjoying it. I have two computers, but the one that I'm stuck on most of the time is older with OS X.4, and GIMP won't work. An image cleaning bot sounds like a great idea.

Thomas Bruce Interview

Smallman12q, I found this page and I think it's the same page you are looking for here. It does not have the docfinder # on the page so i'm not 100% sure. Traxs7 01:56, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

The docfinders appear to be broken for old webpages. I found http://www.networkworld.com/news/1997/1027browser.html on May 31, but I didn't find http://www.networkworld.com/news/1997/1027browser3.html or apparently http://www.networkworld.com/news/1997/1027browser2.html which has a nice set of short reviews on ancient browsers.

Edmund Evans again

Hi, sorry to keep bothering you, but you have the expertise I need. Would I be allowed to upload this image of the girl in the garden? Does it belong to the University of Delaware, or are they simply displaying it? Don't want to upload it, only to find out I've done something wrong. Thanks. Truthkeeper88 (talk) 17:33, 24 May 2010 (UTC)

There isn't a "unique" frame around it, and the arts copyright has expired so it should be fine. There is a noticeboard for copyright questions at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions where you could get a more detailed response if you still have a concern. If you're still concerned, you can contact them at AskSpec. My apologies for the delayed response, I've been very busy in rl these last few days...I'll try and get that bot done as soon as I get back. Cheers! Smallman12q (talk) 01:56, 26 May 2010 (UTC)
Didn't have a problem uploading. No rush at all on the bot - I rarely venture into art. This was an interesting footnote in a textbook and when I found a stub here, I decided to expand. I do like Evans' work, but I don't think there's much more to be done with that article. Truthkeeper88 (talk) 18:44, 26 May 2010 (UTC)
Are you busy, or do you have a bit of time? I'd like to have a section of this image by Crane & Evans cut out at high magnification to show Evans' techniques. I think the bottom left might be best. Thought I ask you first, since you've already done some work on these, but if you're busy I'll take it to the lab. Thanks, as usual. Truthkeeper88 (talk) 19:22, 8 June 2010 (UTC)
Sorry...totally missed your msg...normally don't get so many posts on my talk page in the same day...sorry about that. So you'd like me to crop it so only the bottom left shows and then magnify that? I'm a bit confused as to what you want me to magnify...Smallman12q (talk) 01:43, 9 June 2010 (UTC)
Not sure how to describe this but here goes: when you click on the image it magnifies, and then you click again for a second magnification. Is it possible to crop out a piece of that magnification and create an image of the cropped magnification (which shows the background hatchings used to mix the colors)? Hope this makes sense. I'm logging off now, but will keep your page watched. Truthkeeper88 (talk) 01:54, 9 June 2010 (UTC)
You could take a screenshot of the second magnification and crop out the piece you want...or is there something I'm missing?Smallman12q (talk) 02:01, 9 June 2010 (UTC)
Not you - I'm missing something. Thanks for pointing out the obvious. Truthkeeper88 (talk) 13:22, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

No worries...if you need something else, feel free to ask.Smallman12q (talk) 21:32, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

Arena

I need help! as described here there was beta 1, 2 and 3 made by the w3c (and the omron i16n version) The source code (of the old beta versions) is at the w3c server. As decribed here there were many more versions made by Y... Computing and know the facts that confusing me: on the w3c ftp server are 0.92 - 0.97g versions online. Are these the first Amaya build and the W3C renamed it later (after these few builds)? I'm confused. have you any source/explanation? mabdul 21:33, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

Response
[http://www.w3.org/Arena/beta-1 Beta 1] release lists:
27/11/95:
    beta-1a released. 
8/12/95:
    beta-1b released. 
[...]
0.3.61
    March 24 1998. 

.92-.97g appear to be binary releases prior to the beta...they don't seem to be well documented...but you can tell that there dates are prior to beta 1a release so they are earlier builds. So the one's you're seeing at ftp://ftp.w3.org/pub/arena/ from .92-.97g are earlier binary builds prior to the beta. Hope this helps.Smallman12q (talk) 01:12, 5 June 2010 (UTC)

I finished my work mostly. need only to rewrite the introduction and the "history introduction"(oh and I want to look, if there is any notable about the Yggdrasil development/changelog). I made a svg timeline similar to the timeline of web browsers, but the uploader of wikipedia/media doesn't want to accept because of js. can you help me? Can you look if everythink is alright in the article? did you have any market shares for arena? did you find any ygg. code sources? Have you any DYK proposal? mabdul 14:38, 7 June 2010 (UTC)

This book snippet shows that Arena (web browser) was the "first freely available web browser for X". I believe the X is referring to XFree86.Smallman12q (talk) 02:28, 8 June 2010 (UTC)
this would make sense, but I'm not really sure, so I would like to have an additional source. Thanks for you're help/references mabdul 13:59, 8 June 2010 (UTC)
No problem, the article is pretty much as good as it'll get unless more sources can be found...I'm fairly busy this week, but on the weekend I plan to make an article for Egor the Animator which was the first first commercial Java animator application.

Online Ambassadors requirements

Yeah, after looking into it more, I found out that a) the identity requirements for OTRS aren't as cumbersome as I thought, and b) because there won't be access to sensitive information involved, it's not as critical.

again Arena

Hi, could you write again a mail to Dave Ragrett (since you had already contact to him) if he can remember which builds were before 0.91, if he had any source code / compiled builds of Arena pre 0.98 and when he really started the development.

welcome back. I had also stress with some exams, so couldn't really expand any article. Right: ask dave

  • when he started to develop
  • arena 1.04a (the screenshots in the article) why this wasn't released / source?

Also, given Edmund's notoriety as an engraver...perhaps there should be a seperate list of his published and engraved books? Smallman12q (talk) 20:13, 18 July 2010 (UTC)
Yes, I'm planning on adding a list of works for Edmunds and rewriting Greenaway. Quite a lot of literature exists on Greenaway which I need to order through ILL but have to wait until the Evans book has been returned. I've tweaked your refs a bit, and used the author names of the articles instead of the editor's for consistency. Glad you like the article - I've replied to your comments at FAC so the closing delegate knows unresolved issues have been taken care of. Your early work on cleaning the images was extremely valuable in giving this article its legs. Thanks again. Also replied to you on my talkpage Truthkeeper88 (talk) 21:48, 18 July 2010 (UTC)
Just so you know, I've reduced some of the cites you added, per WP:Clutter. Hope you don't mind, but the source review had already been done, and all that was left was the image review. I hope this hasn't affected the stability of the article and prevent if from being promoted. We'll see what happens. I never quite know how it will go at FAC. Most of the sources you've found are really good and I'll be using them in Toy book and Chromoxylography, two articles I've needed sources for. Thanks. Truthkeeper88 (talk) 01:58, 19 July 2010 (UTC)
It's all good...as long as everything has a citation...I'm okay with it. I'll also help out with toy book. Also, if you manage to add some more content to Edmund_Evans#Randolph_Caldecott...there may be enough room for another picture...something like File:Randolph Caldecott collection-page 0056.jpg. Great work...and I hope I wasn't too picky. Cheers! Smallman12q (talk) 02:35, 19 July 2010 (UTC)
Picky is good. That's the point of the review, and you found things I didn't - and I looked hard! Would love help on Toy book. I've run out of steam on this and threw together a quick article to turn the link blue. I've made the changes you've suggested, and all the sources are still there, but spread about a bit more to decrease the clutter. It's best to strike comments and to add an oppose or support so the delegates know what's going on. As you say, it's all good. Thanks for your help. Btw - I used two Caldecott images in the gallery so he's represented, but I'll see if I can expand that section a bit. Can't at the moment, have to be away for a few days.Truthkeeper88 (talk) 02:58, 19 July 2010 (UTC)
I'll see if I can expand toy book a bit today.Smallman12q (talk) 12:56, 19 July 2010 (UTC)

You should go for a DYK for Under the Window. I've dumped in some text and sources. Hope you don't mind. Truthkeeper88 (talk) 15:28, 20 July 2010 (UTC)
Thanks. I'll add a few more details and put it in for DYK.Smallman12q (talk) 16:19, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────I've nominated it and also sent you an e-mail about more journal sources. The article can still be expanded but I'm too busy in rl at the moment...=(Smallman12q (talk) 20:39, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

Go ahead and send them. I got your e-mail so it's good. I have to slow down editing here b/c of a problem w/ my eyes and can't do much screen work, but will add as I can. Thanks, btw, for adding me to the DYK nom - that wasn't really necessary. It's a cute little article and was your idea. Thanks also for your help with everything. Truthkeeper88 (talk) 20:50, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

E-mail sent...(about 20 relevant journal articles...enjoy).Smallman12q (talk) 00:39, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
It's very annoying to see abstracts but not have access to the database, so this was like getting presents! It will take me some time to get through these. I hope that some is duplicated in the other sources. Lundin's is the one I've really wanted, but from what I've read of the three Lundin sources already used in the Evans article she tends to focus on the illustrators more than the printing. Thanks so much! Truthkeeper88 (talk) 01:31, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
=D. Ye, Lundin is the expert on the subject, and I've also sent her an email asking if she would review the article. Some of the journal articles don't have much on Edmund...but you can always search the pdfs for Evans and make use of the info you find there. Cheers!Smallman12q (talk) 15:48, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

DrV revert

Hi,
No objection to the DrV revert, but A) You messed up the formatting some and B) I was more going for formatting than wording changes. Would you mind if I reverted you and then restored the wording to what it was before? Hobit (talk) 19:30, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

No problem...I just found some of the wording a bit awkward...its probably best to get a consensus at WP:VPP.Smallman12q (talk) 19:54, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
Thanks! I think it now has the right wording with the new formatting... Hobit (talk) 20:40, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

Arena (web browser)

Hello. Last month you added a citation to a book from the "Webster's Quotations, Facts and Phrases" series published by Icon Group International to this article. Icon Group International is not a reliable source - their books are computer-generated, with most of the text copied from Wikipedia (most entries have [WP] by them to indicate this, see e.g. [2]). I've only removed the reference, not the text it was referencing. I'm removing a lot of similar references as they are circular references; many other editors have also been duped by these sources. Despite giving an appearance of reliability, the name "Webster's" has been public domain since the late 19th century. I note that you realised that the source was copied from Wikipedia, but you used it anyway with a hidden comment justifying its use: this is a decision I strongly disagree with. This is not a reputable publisher. Another publisher to be wary of as they reuse Wikipedia articles is Alphascript Publishing. Fences&Windows 20:59, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

Ye...I agree. I won't be using circular references in the future. My mistake...Smallman12q (talk) 01:53, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

Evans images

I found this on Gutenberg, which shows much richer images for The History of John Gilpin. Someone added a new image to Edmund Evans, that's pretty washed out, and now the caption doesn't really match the image. Am trying to figure out what happened, and wondered if you knew. Truthkeeper88 (talk) 00:19, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

Never mind. I found this book at the University of Florida and uploaded images from there instead. They're much better. Truthkeeper88 (talk) 01:28, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
Ye about that...an editor raised on concern on my commons talk page stating the auto-equalize was too intense...so I removed it and left only the auto-white balance. I've also auto-white balanced your image File:Caldecott Fox 1883 2.png and made an equalized comparison:

I'm not sure which is the correct representation though...please comment. It'd be nice if we could get an expert to put up a restored version of Edmund's work for comparison...but I can't find anything.Smallman12q (talk) 01:52, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, didn't see your comment until now. For the ones I just uploaded, I like the white balance w/out the equalize better. The books at the University of Florida seem to be pretty close to how the color should be w/out too much yellowing. For what I wanted in the article, the image that was there was the correct balance of colors and much better than the one that replaced it. Did you let the editor know the article was at FAC? The caption is supported by the source and I really need a bright image from John Gilpin there. Will think about what to do, but might comment that out altogether b/c the new ones don't have as many colors. Truthkeeper88 (talk) 02:19, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
Well...I'm not entirely sure what to do...the colors are still all there but just not as intense. You can always revert to the equalized image on the commons at commons:File:Randolph_Caldecott_collection-page_0081-crop-balance-equalize.jpg.Smallman12q (talk) 16:27, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
I'll leave the new one in for now. Want to keep the article stable. Truthkeeper88 (talk) 16:48, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

federal reserve

I just saw your message. I'm sorry, but that was not vandalism. If you would like citations for the information I placed on the site I would be more than happy to provide it. The Federal Reserve System is a hybrid of government and private interest. It is the front company for a partnership between private banks and the federal government. As a student and practitioner of finance, I can speak with authority on this issue. Please let me know what information you require so that you will be satisfied with the following statement:

The federal reserve is a private corporation that has entered into partnership with the federal government. It is made up of 100% shares that are privately owned by its broker dealer banks. These banks are in turn privately held corporations that have private shareholders, some of which exercise overwealming power in formulating monetary policy.

why that comment was removed

In reference to Talk:Chemtrail_conspiracy_theory#Comment_removal, I didn't remove that comment, but I can tell you that it's unsourced speculation, the type of comment that you would make at a discussion forum. WP:TALK says to use the talk pages to discuss changes to the articles. --Enric Naval (talk) 00:01, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

Usually, user comments aren't removed unless they are in some way blatantly disruptive ie. uncivil. This comment was off-topic...it could have been put in a collapsible box, or a simply "not-forum" response would do. I just don't approve of unnecessary comment removal...that's all.Smallman12q (talk) 01:55, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

HTML element

Do you think that the article HTML element would be a Good List? I would nominate it. maybe after a review (have only looked over it and it seems to be a good article at the moment. mabdul 00:03, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

That would probably be one of the harder lists in Wikipedia...but I'll have a look tomorrow. The thing I see right now is a lack of citations...but I'm good with adding those=D. There are also some "Citation needed" tags that need to be resolved.Smallman12q (talk) 01:53, 20 July 2010 (UTC)
yeah, I know. but that would really no problem. I know that there is anough work, but the article as it is now, is not bad. mabdul 10:25, 20 July 2010 (UTC)
I've looked at the article, and found a few problems.
  • You need to add/expand the attributes for each element.
  • You need to add when it was proposed/standardized/deprecated/made invalid.
  • The obsolete elements require expansion.
  • References need to be added for each element.
  • Some example pictures should be added...for example illustrating the different types of input buttons.

I hope you don't take this the wrong way...but this article would need to at least double in size before qualifying for GA. You'd need to add in all the data from Index of Elements as well as Index of Attributes. The article requires more work to qualify for WP:GA. On a side note, you may want to start article for all of the html elements...for example input (HTML element). Smallman12q (talk) 13:56, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

nono, that is really what I want. think that could achieve this week. I think that this could be done. I thought that there might some work to do, but I need sometimes somebody to say what is really need to be done. thx mabdul 14:17, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

thx, binaries for windows recommended by the w3c at [3] and on [4]
Can you explain me and the world of wikipedia ^^ what is the difference of bookmarks and hotlists in web browsers? There must be a difference since the features are separated in the comparison table which is in the cello article. If you know the difference, we/I would explain/clarify this in the bookmark article mabdul 19:17, 22 July 2010 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────There was a difference...I remember reading it in an old publication but I can't seem to find it right now. I have found a brief article stating that hotlists couldn't be organized into folders...but I'm sure there was something more... Though for modern purposes, bookmarks/favorites/hotlists are considered the same.

I believe that hotlists came first...then favorites w/ bookmarks. Hope that helpsSmallman12q (talk) 23:31, 22 July 2010 (UTC)

good night ^^ (here it is 02:35) this is not really helping! I don't think that this enough to integrate in the bookmark article. (oh and I see that I linked a redlink!) As you can see, maybe, I'm expanding articles- at the moment: TBL, Pellow, Caillau, MacWWW, ENQUIRE, (in a few days History of the Internet), WorldWideWeb, WWW1///WWWconference (if I found something by accident), CERN HTTPd, Line Mode Browser. really hard not to get confused by myself :p mabdul 00:42, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
=P...it can certainly get confusing when looking at some of these now ancient technologies...but so far we're doing okay. I've considered starting stubs for all the html elements next week....(this week I'd like to finish up with the Victorian engraver Edmund Evans=D.) I'm also going to try and see if I can get linemode to work with Wikipedia so as to take an English screenshot.Smallman12q (talk) 01:18, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

Unfortunately, I don't think Line mode browser would pass GA. It's sections are too short, it doesn't properly cover the internals/development/features of the program. (Have a look at Starcraft#Development to see what an FA development section looks like)). The article also lacks a comparison to modern/future text based console browsers such as Lynx. You've done some great work with browser articles, but unfortunately, there is only one FA: Opera (web browser)(...not even Mozilla Firefox which was once an FA with its 220+ references is considered a GA). The main problem is that some of the documentation/sources needed to make a browser article a GA are either hard to find or simply don't exist. With a little copy/edit it should be fine for B-class which is where many fine articles such as North Sea and Mozilla Firefox sit. I'm going to create an article or 2 for browsers tmrw...busy in real life at the moment.Smallman12q (talk) 00:27, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────You've done a pretty good job thus far with Line mode browser...unfortunately...I haven't heard anything further from CERN, so I'm guessing that they aren't releasing the image. It's been a while since you created an article...perhaps you'd like to make something for IBM Easy Web Browsing using these: [5], [6], [7], and [8]. Also, there are some nice diagrams at Towards a Uniform Library of Common Code , but I'm not sure if they're under a free license.Smallman12q (talk) 21:49, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

I will mail and ask the w3c for the licenses for the following images: http://www.w3.org/Icons/WWW/ and the diagrams at towards a uniform lib and on this page (underpages) because they would indeed be really useful. mabdul 05:52, 11 August 2010 (UTC)
Definitive finish of the Arena article. All cleanup and the last screenshot are integrated (after a very long andLinux installation ^^)!
w3.org/icons have license information (and I uploaded the last useful icon: html!)
I don't think that IBM Home Page Reader uses trident! Why should Netscape be required elsewise?
The mail will be written today with the request of the license ;)
mabdul 15:33, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

Request to help a new editor

I was wondering if you have time to help: User:Jrockwell3 added material to The Scarlet Letter which I deleted. Turns out he/she is a student and needs the material for a class assignment. I've left a message on their page, but ideally we'd be good ambassadors and help. I'm thinking the material is best in a sandbox or a separate page that can be deleted when the assignment is done. I don't want to turn away potential editors and professors who are using Wikipedia but am trying to pack and haven't the time to help right now. Do you? If so, that would be great. Thanks.

License tagging for File:Critter 09.JPG

Thanks for uploading File:Critter 09.JPG. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information; to add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 23:05, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

It seems to me that there was a mistake included in one of your efforts. When you userfied a version of The Scarlet Letter for User:Jrockwell3, User:Jrockwell3/The Scarlet Letter appeared in [[Category:1850 novels]]. I hesitate to edit another user's subpage, but it seems that Jrockwell3 may never respond to his talk page message. Since it seems that you are responsible for the mistake, do you think it would be proper for you to correct it? --Fartherred (talk) 16:44, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

=D Though common courtesy should lead to civility, here, in our postmodern version of the Theatre of the Absurd, where we are overrun by cantankerous trolls, it is indeed nice to see that individuals who extol the virtues of civility are still extant. ...Ye, I 'll comment out the categories, though it doesn't appear the user will be coming back though...=(Smallman12q (talk) 02:02, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Help at Bing Disambiguation

You once made a terrific comment at the Bing Search engine discussion.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kumo_(search_engine)

This is silly. Clearly most traffic is looking for Bing the search engine, yet, wikipedia is stone-walling with unclear resultsw. Can you help? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 173.206.50.230 (talk) 03:56, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Ah...the Bing disambig...I remember that. Prior to the Bing search engine, Bing used to receive up to 100 page views/day, now it receives 300-600 pages views per day. What I'd propose is that we move Bing (search engine) to Bing and move the current Bing to Bing (disambiguation) and put the appropriate {{for}} tags on the relevant pages. We'd leave it for about 10 days to see if Bing (disambiguation) continues to receive 300+ pageviews a day. If it does, that means that people are searching for the disambig page, otherwise, it means that most people are probably looking for Bing (search engine). I've added my support to Talk:Bing_(search_engine)#Move.3F. Thanks for letting me know=D.Smallman12q (talk) 14:03, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Of all the recent skin related photos you have uploaded, what would you say the best three are? I know this is subjective, but which three do you think are the best? ---kilbad (talk) 21:53, 27 September 2010 (UTC)
Normally, I'd be happy to offer my view, however, as the ~180 files represent cutaneous afflictions, I'd prefer to abstain in saying one is better than another. Though, as I'm a bit bold, I'd venture to say that File:An introduction to dermatology (1905) Acne (indurta).jpg, File:Eczema faciei 2.jpg, File:An introduction to dermatology (1905) nodular leprosy.jpg seem fair. Though, as I said before, its very difficult to judge an image of a diseased person...(dehumanizing in a sense). Also, for lichen planus, have you seen File:An introduction to dermatology (1905) Lichen planus 1.jpg, File:An introduction to dermatology (1905) Lichen planus 2.jpg, File:An introduction to dermatology (1905) Section of a Lichen planus papule 75x.jpg, File:Lichen planus intermed mag.jpg...there appear to be a few images on the commons. I do hope you make use of the uploaded images. Cheers.Smallman12q (talk) 23:56, 27 September 2010 (UTC)

Dave Raggett

Hi, as you saw, I started slowly expanding the article. You requested a userfying. what does that means and how helps this in the creation process? mabdul 10:52, 28 September 2010 (UTC)

Userfying means you can work on the article in your userspace (which starts with user:). I originally had it userfied because the article was literally one line....and would probably be speedied in mainspace. Feel free to move it to main article space when you're ready (also remember to put it up for a DYK). I'm very busy this week, but I'll review it on friday. Great work thus far.

Pound

Hi Smallman, got your email with the credo reference information about Pound. I'm not sure what more you suggest to be added, but that piece is a tertiary article sourced to Carpenter. I have Carpenter (it's a thousand pages long!) and one of the difficulties in an article such as this is knowing which pieces to pick out and keep and then fitting together all the pieces - somewhat seamlessly. I suggest you add your suggestions to the FAC page where consensus is formed. The people on the review - SlimVirgin and DCGeist have considerable FAC experience, as do Malleus and Ceoil who are working on the prose. I'm sure they'll help decide what to keep and what not to keep. I particularly value Ceoil's advice as he's brought H.D. and W.B. Yeats to featured status is familiar with the subject.

Also, just so you know, I may be reverting some of the recent Edmunds edits. I'd like that article to stay as close to the FAC version as possible, and at first glance, some of the edits contradict the information from Evans' autobiography. Don't really feel like dealing with it right at the moment though - haven't been feeling really great and the Pound FAC is keeping me busy. Truthkeeper88 (talk) 23:41, 1 October 2010 (UTC)

I ought to have left you a not for Edmunds, though I saw you busy with Pound. I'd gone through some more sources for him and found some slightly contradictory info on dates, ages, and whatnot. As for Pound, I'd sent the article more or less for your own interest, though I'll make relevant suggestions at the FAC.Smallman12q (talk) 00:37, 2 October 2010 (UTC)
I've temporarily reverted your edit to Evans, but it's still there in history. Don't have the energy to sort it out at the moment. There is contradictory information, which is the reason I used his autobiography in the end. But it looks as though you may have picked up a few pieces I missed, I just have to pull out my notes and sort through it all. Can't deal with two articles at once. Truthkeeper88 (talk) 02:07, 2 October 2010 (UTC)
No rush...Smallman12q (talk) 02:10, 2 October 2010 (UTC)
Just wanted to thank you for taking the time to review the Pound FAC - I think the article still has a bit of work to be done. Truthkeeper88 (talk) 19:16, 5 October 2010 (UTC)
The article certainly has improved a great deal since you began....it's a fairly challenging topic, to say the least. Better luck with the next FAC.Smallman12q (talk) 22:53, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

How's your Online Ambassador experience going so far?

Hi Smallman12q/Archive 3,

We're starting to get into the busy part of the semester for Online Ambassadors, and we want to check in and see how you're doing, what your opinions about where we are now, and any feedback you may have.

Please answer these questions either on my talk page or send them to me by email.

1. How many mentees are you currently working with?

2. Have you reached out to students who don't have mentors yet? If not, would you be willing to?

3. What do you think of the content of messages on the Google Group?

4. What do you think of the volume of messages on the Google Group?

5. Do you participate on the Google Group much? If not, what would make you participate more?

6. Are there any problems you've experienced so far?

7. Is there anything else Sage or the rest of the Public Policy Initiative team could do to make your experience as an Online Ambassador better?

8. Are you okay sharing your username with your answers to our Public Policy Initiative team, or would you prefer to remain anonymous?

Thanks for your feedback! --Ldavis (Public Policy) (talk) 19:23, 22 October 2010 (UTC)

Yes, I did see this. It looks like progress is being made, but some more manipulation is still needed before the information is in a really usable format. Sorting by category, number of categories, article class, etc are all quite helpful for projects and individuals editors. For instance, sometimes I only have a few minutes of time to work online and so I'll do a little bit of work on orphaned articles - it's quick and easy, and it's really nice to be able to just go to the cleanup page and go directly to the section dealing with orphaned articles within the project. Thank you for all of your work on this so far. Dana boomer (talk) 14:14, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

Project direction needed

After reading about what a few teachers are accomplishing in their classroom by getting students involved in the process of contributing to the content of Wikipedia I wanted in.

I'm James Fullerton, a teacher of social studies for 8th grade students in Southern Lehigh Middle School. We are looking at the fundamentals of government, civics, and economics until June 2011. The way the classes are broken down is that they work in teams. With each team having 5-8 students. There are 20 teams total that can work on different projects. Collaboration within each team is critical. What I was considering was having each team work on a project for about 10-12 weeks starting ASAP. I can have the students work through the section "Tasks for students to get started" next week. These student understand the basic concepts of wiki technology as I do, since they have been creating their own wiki pages on WikiSpaces since this September.

Any suggestions on a project direction? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jmfullerton (talkcontribs) 20:25, 31 October 2010 (UTC)

Could the bot use the existing subscriptions instead of having new ones? That would seem like the simplest option. Headbomb {talk / contribs / physics / books} 00:09, 3 November 2010 (UTC)
I've made that suggestion to Svick. It'll probably work for most standard wikiprojects. I've looked at books, but I'm not sure how to work with them efficiently on the toolserver as they don't seem to be part of database layout? I could always write a more manual parser though.Smallman12q (talk) 00:15, 3 November 2010 (UTC)

You legend

ust wanted to drop you a note saying how much I appeciate your (and Svick's) efforts in reviving the cleanup list, and improving it too from the old Wolterbot very infrequent list. This is the sort of maintenance tool that should be run from the foundation level, but as they don't seem interested in any practical, ground level work, it lies in limbo for a year until someone like you comes along and puts in the effort. You are a wiklegend. The-Pope (talk) 00:00, 8 November 2010 (UTC)

It's mostly Svick's efforts...he's basically rewritten most of my original script...but I am keeping a watchful eye. I do agree that its very dissapointing to see the WMF not hire an individual for maintenance/vandalism/statistic bots/tools. It leaves it more or less to the community to fend for itself...probably not the best approach. Still nice to get some praise for those of us who do write code for the wiki.

student to mentor

Per recent discussions on the Ambassadors list, we're going to try out assigning mentors to some of the students that don't have one, beginning with Media, Politics & Power in the Digital Age. Would you be willing to mentor User:Ernestodelaserna?

If so, please introduce yourself, perhaps along these lines:

"Hi! I'm Smallman12q, and I've been assigned as your mentor. (If you'd rather choose your own mentor or don't want one, just let me know; you can request a different mentor from this list of Online Ambassadors.)

I'll keep an eye on your edits as you work on Wikipedia for your class, and try to pitch in where I can. If you'd like any help or advice, please let me know."

After that, don't forget to update Wikipedia:Online Ambassadors/Mentors to list your mentees, and if you've reached your limit, move your entry down to the "additional ambassadors" section.--Sage Ross - Online Facilitator, Wikimedia Foundation (talk) 19:15, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

Yawloco Piratebay

Hi, I contacted you earlier about making a piratebay appeal process page. Sorry, I have been pretty busy and have not been working on it. I was wondering if you could give me some advice on what I should add or submit on the page. I am fairly inexperienced with Wiki. I am going to create a draft within the next two days if you can possibly look at it and tell me what you think.

November 16 2010 Yawloco (talk) 01:47, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

There isn't much on the appeal at The Pirate Bay trial. I can't really advise you as to what to write...that's up to you as the editor. I will however be happy to review your draft=D.Smallman12q (talk) 02:38, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

00:56, 18 November 2010 (UTC) Yawloco (talk) Awesome, I will work on it and give you a glimpse of my draft as soon as possible.

Stockholm Syndrome section copied almost verbatim from source

See this [9], the section on "Development". The first few words differ from the source, the rest are verbatim. Part of this was flagged as "plagiarism" on the talk page, which is how the rest of the copying came to my attention. Please note that if you copied this from one wikipedia article to another, you're supposed to say so in the edit summary. As for copying from a source without direct attribution, that does open you up to charges of plagiarism. A mere footnote is not enough -- you must indicate that you're quoting. According to WP:PLAG, the following is not allowed:

Inserting a text—copied word-for-word, or with very few changes—then citing the source in an inline citation after the passage that was copied.

Your edit is a clear violation: it's copied word-for-word. Yakushima (talk) 06:45, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

The source was a government publication so you don't need to "de-plagerize". Rather, in the references, I should have added {{Source-attribution}} which I now have. There should also be a FBI template in Category:United States government attribution templates...but there isn't one, so I'll make one later.Smallman12q (talk) 12:36, 17 November 2010 (UTC)
If your intent from the outset was to incorporate text from a public domain source, why did you alter the wording at the beginning, in a way that changes the meaning slightly? You also left no indication in the edit summary of the source of this longish stretch of text.
Recommendations from WP:PLAG:
A practice preferred by some Wikipedia editors, when copying in public-domain, or free content, verbatim, is to paste in the content in one edit, with indication in the edit summary of the source of the material. This practice has some advantages. This way, further changes such as modernizing language and correcting errors can be done in separate edits after the original insertion of text, allowing later editors the ability to make a clear comparison between the original source text and the current version in the article. If following this practice, in addition to the edit summary note, be sure to attribute the material either by using blockquotes or quotation marks, by using an attribution template, using an inline citation and/or adding your own note in the reference section of the article to indicate that language has been used verbatim.
I hope this clarifies things. Yakushima (talk) 13:44, 17 November 2010 (UTC)
I wasn't aware of such a practice. Thanks for pointing it out.Smallman12q (talk) 15:00, 17 November 2010 (UTC)
I have since modified the wording of it, since "using an inline citation and/or adding your own note in the reference section of the article to indicate that language has been used verbatim" could be interpreted by some as saying that merely using an inline citation is enough to indicate that language has been used verbatim. (Ridiculous, to my mind, but some people seem to think so.) Yakushima (talk) 10:47, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

Online Ambassador selection process

Please share you views on the current version of the proposed Online Ambassador selection process, which the steering committee has recommended for adoption by the ambassadors program.

take a look?

Hi there, I wondered if you wouldn't mind taking a look at what I believe is a POV issue on Chemtrails 'conspiracy theory'. The problem lies in the title, which was changed from 'chemtrails' to 'chemtrail conspiracy theory' without any discussion [10].

From what I can see, the term is used overwhelmingly to refer to the act of cloud-seeding/geoengineering - which is clearly no 'theory'. Indeed, theories exist about everything, especially issues with so little official information available. With the new release of the film "What in the world are they spraying" as well as a few news investigations which all support "chemtrails" = geoengineering, it doesn't seem like too difficult an argument to prove. Secondly, there is a statement in the intro that says "chemtrails don't refer to cloud-seeding etc" but that statement has no references to back it up - and to my knowledge is not true. Yet, the whole slant of the article is based on that one unfounded statement.

Just wanted to get your take on this, many thanks for your time! Sam 174.74.68.103 (talk) 19:19, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

Use of WikiProject Banners

Hi,

I noticed there is a page in your userspace that contain several WikiProject banners. These banners should only be used on the talk page of Wikipedia articles. I also noticed the editor that added these banners was User:Mabdul. I was wondering if there is any reason why this page is using the banners? If they are no-longer needed, would you please delete the page, or remove the banners from the page so they do not register in the WikiProjects.

Orphaned non-free image File:Avenge Assange Anonymous.png

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Avenge Assange Anonymous.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. Skier Dude (talk 07:53, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

United States Department of Energy National Laboratories images

FYI: I have closed your United States Department of Energy National Laboratories images nomination at FFD. The reason I did, as I articulated at Wikipedia:Files for deletion/2010 December 5, is that it appears that this is a little bit premature. I took this as a matter of determining whether to pursue different courses of action, only one of which would end up at FFD. I would recommend discussing this elsewhere on Wikipedia first (perhaps starting at the Village Pump), and then if you decide to nominate the whole lot for deletion, come back to FFD with a fully-formed nomination and we'll discuss it then. SchuminWeb (Talk) 00:52, 7 December 2010 (UTC)

I have raised the concern at various pages. I've raised it at Jimbo's page, Centralized discussion, WP:AN, and at Media copyright questions. Clearly the matter appears to be a particularly unpopular topic and as such, I will pursue the matter no further. Though there may indeed be a copyright violation, it seems that the institutional copyright holders would be wary to assert their copyright claims. Smallman12q (talk) 01:44, 7 December 2010 (UTC)
Thank you for the links to where you've pursued this matter. Quite helpful in figuring out where to go from here, since I figure at least some of it is worth pursuing, and I think part of the reason it's "unpopular", as you've described, is because you're kind of all over the place on this and need to further refine things. First, however, you will need to figure out what's hosted locally on en.wiki and what's on Commons and separate those. The ones on Commons will need to be handled on Commons, and ones on en.wiki need to be handled here.
Once the two groups are separated, then we can process them, likely individually rather than as a mass-nom. Doing some spot-checking on the Livermore ones specifically, I found at least one file (File:Rayleigh-Taylor instability.jpg) from Commons that's likely not free. Following that file's trail to here, it says "©UCRL-WEB-229972". UCRL, from what I can tell, is probably the University of California Radiation Laboratory, which, if it's their image, would make it non-free, and thus ineligible for inclusion on Commons. One would need to then do a Deletion request for Commons on that. Whether it is suitable for inclusion on en.wiki as a non-free image is based on whether or not it satisfies all of the WP:NFCC criteria.
I believe that many of the files are likely fine, but at the same time, many are also not fine. If you would be willing to split it between Commons and en.wiki, I'd be willing to help process the list, since it's just a matter of checking the source trails on these things, determining where the images actually came from, and then referring them to various processes as need be. SchuminWeb (Talk) 07:26, 7 December 2010 (UTC)
I've improved the listing at User:Smallman12q/DOE media. You can now tell which is at commons and which is not. Let me know if you need anything else. (Also, let me know if you can get some kind of legal response from WMF before you start filing). Smallman12q (talk) 23:39, 7 December 2010 (UTC)
Aside from United States Department of Energy National Laboratories images which may be non-free, there are also images from Federal_Reserve_Bank#Banks which may also be non-free.14:21, 8 December 2010 (UTC)
Thank you for marking where these images are! I can really get into this, and check out the locally-hosted ones first, and then head over to the Commons and check those out... SchuminWeb (Talk) 02:16, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
And if it's unpopular, I'm not worried, because if we can't use the images, then we can't use the images, whether people like it or not. SchuminWeb (Talk) 02:19, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
So I threw a little read meat out there in order to take the temperature. Let's see how these work out... SchuminWeb (Talk) 02:49, 10 December 2010 (UTC)

File source and copyright licensing problem with File:Avenge Assange Anonymous.png

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:Avenge Assange Anonymous.png. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, we also need to know the terms of the license that the copyright holder has published the file under, usually done by adding a licensing tag. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, 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 have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Unsourced and untagged files may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the file will be deleted 48 hours after 22:58, 13 December 2010 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 22:58, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

Mentor for team of students

Hi, my name is James Fullerton, and I'm a teacher at Southern Lehigh Middle School in PA. Recently I've created a project that involves Wikipedia (WP) and small groups of students making a contribution to a WP article of their choosing, as long as the topic is related to the content of the course - being American Government, Civics, and Economics. For the past 4 weeks, students have become involved in the culture of WP, with many already narrowing in on a topic for their contribution. Here is the supportive material on Wikispaces (https://wikiedit.wikispaces.com/). Your assistance would be greatly appreciated! Would you be available to act as a mentor to a small group of students as they begin to offer additional content to an article of their interest? The team sizes are numbered between 5-7 students each. I will notify you as to who is in the teams with their WP user names. Jmfullerton (talk) 17:28, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:IE_8_page_zoom.png

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:IE_8_page_zoom.png. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-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 this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Melesse (talk) 05:50, 4 January 2011 (UTC)

We're going to post our article (Power of the Purse) on my Snooki123 (talk) 16:18, 4 January 2011 (UTC) sandbox. All of our editing will be done on there. Thank you again!Snooki123 (talk) 16:18, 4 January 2011 (UTC)

That's fine. I've corrected your sandbox at User:Snooki123/sandbox. Please note that you have to hit "edit" and copy the wikitext in order to preserve the formatting. Cheers!.Smallman12q (talk) 18:47, 4 January 2011 (UTC)

Invitation to join WikiProject United States

Flag of the United States.svg

Hello, Smallman12q/Archive 3! WikiProject United States, an outreach effort supporting development of United States related articles in Wikipedia, has recently been restarted after a long period of inactivity. As a user who has shown an interest in United States related topics we wanted to invite you to join us in developing content relating to the United States. If you are interested please add your Username and area of interest to the members page here. Thank you!!!

Nomination of Mass death of freshwater drum in the Arkansas River for deletion

The article Mass death of freshwater drum in the Arkansas River is being discussed concerning whether it is suitable for inclusion as an article according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Mass death of freshwater drum in the Arkansas River until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on good quality evidence, and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion template from the top of the article. Gavia immer (talk) 03:22, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Apologies for the Twinkle-spam, but I wanted to be sure you were aware of each nomination. I genuinely feel that coverage of these incidents doesn't belong in the encyclopedia, and in any case the Beebe, Arkansas birdkill that caused all this internet speculation has been debunked. Your conflicting opinion is of course welcome in any of the linked debates. Thanks for reading. Gavia immer (talk) 03:29, 6 January 2011 (UTC)
There's no need to poison the well by suggesting I have a "conflicting view". To the contrary, I would support a merge of the content into relevant articles.Smallman12q (talk) 15:02, 6 January 2011 (UTC)
It wasn't meant as "poisoning the well"; I'm sorry it came off that way. I merely meant that we can be presumed to have differing opinions on the material. If I came off a bit sharp, it's because I'm concerned about a bunch of Internet conspiratology that you have nothing whatsoever to do with. Gavia immer (talk) 22:58, 6 January 2011 (UTC)
That's fine... I'd appreciate if you'd support a merger of the content to relevant articles as opposed to deletion. The pages have received a number of page views...so it seems worthwhile to keep the material somewhere.Smallman12q (talk) 23:07, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

New Years Message for WikiProject United States

With the first of what I hope will be monthly newsletters I again want to welcome you to the project and hope that as we all work together through the year we can expand the project, create missing articles and generally improve the pedia thought mutual cooperation and support. Now that we have a project and a solid pool of willing members I wanted to strike while the iron is hot and solicite help in doing a few things that I believe is a good next step in solidifiing the project. I have outlined a few suggestions where you can help with on the projects talk page. This includes but is not limited too updating Portal:United States, assessing the remaining US related articles that haven't been assessed, eliminating the Unrefernced BLP's and others. If you have other suggestions or are interested in doing other things feel free. I just wanted to offer a few suggestions were additional help is needed. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, comments or suggestions or you can always post something on the projects talk page.

hi would like to mentor someone interested in medical research? like biostatistics, and Epi etc., if not could you please refer to someone knowledgeable in these fields? Quantumash (talk) 17:36, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

Medical biology is not my field of expertise. However, looking at Wikipedia:Adopt-a-user/Adoptee's Area/Adopters, you may ask users who are active in WP:WikiProject Medicine such as User:Cyclonenim or User:Madhero88. Alternatively, you may ask at the talk pages of relevant wikiprojects for adopters. If you can't find anyone, let me know and I'll help you out. I've also added an adopt-me userbox to your userpage. If you need anything, let me know. Cheers.Smallman12q (talk) 23:04, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

File:Exdino.jpg

I'm going to have to decline to reverse my deletion of this file. The article for which you want the image already has a non-free image, so I don't see how its use would me WP:NFCC#3a, and secondly, I don't think that an image of a character would increase understanding of the article which lists them, so I don't see see how WP:NFCC#8 would be met. Maxim(talk) 01:49, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

It wouldn't be problematic if it were to replace the logo in the infobox; however, two non-free images in such a (relatively) short article is overload. Maxim(talk) 03:19, 23 January 2011 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Featured article review/Cryptography/archive1

Hi Smallman - I have removed your FAR nomination of Cryptography from the FAR page, as there was no talk page notification made. I see your note about the page being inactive, but the point of the notification is to see if a prod (in the form of a notification of a potential FAR) can get it reactivated. It doesn't always work, but I have seen it happen. I have made the talk page notification, hidden the FAR banner at the top of the page, placed the review on hold, and removed it from the main FAR page. If a week or so goes by with no response or work being done, the banner can be unhidden and the page re-transcluded to WP:FAR.

Arena screenshots

Hi, can you explain me, why nearly all the Arena screenshots you submitted by OTRS are included in the English Wikipedia and not at commons? Shouldn't they moved? In two weeks I want to update and expand the MacWWW article to a better status. The World Wide Web Unleashed and the How the web is born books are lying at my home and I want to update some articles after my exams ;) mabdul 12:15, 23 January 2011 (UTC)

You can move them to commons...no reason not to. I'll update MacWWW a bit today. Also, I'd recommend reading Weaving the Web: The Original Design and Ultimate Destiny of the World Wide Web by its inventor which covers a lot of these early browsers.Smallman12q (talk) 14:54, 23 January 2011 (UTC)
Since the Beonex Communicator article was shortly before an afd, I updated and expand the article. I have a few (4 links) that I want to include and expand the history section, but I'm not happy about the tags. Can you help me finding out more references? (and maybe a major cleanup/copyedit after I finished the article at the end of the week) mabdul 15:50, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
Here are some relevant links (though in different languages)

Though this was one of the earliest ports, there doesn't seem to be much info left. It's likely that much of the coverage is hidden somewhere in archive.org or gone forever=(. After you're done with the article, let me know and I'll copyedit it. CheersSmallman12q (talk) 18:28, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

You can find the latest builds at http://mirrors.ibiblio.org/beonex/ for linux/mac/windows. I'll add screenshots tmrw.Smallman12q (talk) 20:32, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
You found great ressources. Some - like the russian pdf - I did also find and have them opened at the moment. I hope that in some german printed magazines I will find more. I have a notice that in a Belgian magazine called Computer Magazine; I have concrete data about the printed version, but I can't get the magazine. Did you have any possibility to get it? mabdul 22:38, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
The Mozillazine link is intersting...though I don't have physical access to the French/Dutch Belgium Computer Magazine. Worse yet, the company behind the magazines seems to have either be bankrupt or bought out. I'll ask at resource request, but I don't believe we'll ever get to see the article=(. Thank's for finding the link though=).Smallman12q (talk) 03:35, 31 January 2011 (UTC)
I found out that the whoule company changed. With a little research you will find out that vnunet.be changed is names to V3.co.uk --> but the magazine is discontinued, I think. The old articles archived by archive.org; but as the mozillazine commentary says: this was only published physically. So, however: we need these papers or we couldn't integrate it ;( mabdul 04:01, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

mmh, I'm not really happy, but all these old word processor-articles (and the old machine-articles also) are really bad. not well referenced, not cross-linked and informations are only partial in all articles. (for example word perfect was available for apple - but later than the source you referred to) - I will work (more or less) for web browsers(and some internet related) articles. There are to many construction sites. mabdul 14:06, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
I'm busy with real-life work (I have to finish this project with this person who is retiring before the project's deadline...essentially leaving me to do all the work). I'd like to do web browsers first, followed by ancient word processors, then databases, and finally early cd-rom/floppy reference collections. The current word processor articles are quite poor (and there aren't enough links/redirects to them). Thanks for adding the appropriate wikilinks to Comparison of early word processors...you are welcome to add additional software (the Whole Earth Catalog didn't list everything...even though they tried). If you prefer early to expand early web browsers that's fine. Perhaps you could expand User:Smallman12q/Emissary (Internet Software) which was a popular early internet suite (before IE3). Keep up the good work Mabdul, and when I get back, I'll help you out with more browser articles!Smallman12q (talk) 23:47, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:174px-Wikipedia-word1.png

A tag has been placed on File:174px-Wikipedia-word1.png requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section I10 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a file that is not an image, sound file or video clip [i.e. a Word document or PDF file] that has no encyclopedic use.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page 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 page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Rabatment animation

At Rabatment of the rectangle, you added this animation. Is it possible to give the animation more frames, to show the rotation of the short side into the long side? I don't see in the current version what the connection is to the rabatment—I don't think it helps the reader understand the concept. Binksternet (talk) 19:01, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

I've added about a dozen extra frames. Let me know if this helps.Smallman12q (talk) 23:50, 4 March 2011 (UTC)
There are several problems with this animation. The new version has black surrounding regions which jump in on some of the frames. I'm sure that can be fixed pretty easily. The bigger problem is that the rabatment is supposed to hinge off of one corner of the rectangle, not start in the middle. A segment which is a copy of the short side folds down from the short side into the rectangle until it is on top of the long side, hinging at the corner of the short and long sides. Then the segment continues to rotate, but this time its hinge is the other end. At no time is there any activity outside of the rectangle, and there is no time when the viewer should see two rectangles at right angles. Binksternet (talk) 00:23, 5 March 2011 (UTC)
Is this File:Rabatment-rectangle-animation2.gif more accurate?Smallman12q (talk) 13:40, 5 March 2011 (UTC)
I do not have any animation-making software, so the best I can do is this sequence of 8 rectangles based on your first one. In this imagining of the rabatment, there is no need for the blue rectangle; all the action occurs inside the green rectangle. Binksternet (talk) 14:24, 5 March 2011 (UTC)
I've made it animated=P.Smallman12q (talk) 19:45, 5 March 2011 (UTC)

Marking articles students are working on

Howdy, Online Ambassador!

This is a quick message to all the ambassadors about marking and tracking which articles students are working on. For the classes working with the ambassador program, please look over any articles being worked on by students (in particular, any ones you are mentoring, but others who don't have mentors as well) and do these things:

  1. Add {{WAP assignment | term = Spring 2011 }} to the articles' talk pages. (The other parameters of the {{WAP assignment}} template are helpful, so please add them as well, but the term = Spring 2011 one is most important.)
  2. If the article is related to United States public policy, make sure the article the WikiProject banner is on the talk page: {{WikiProject United States Public Policy}}
  3. Add Category:Article Feedback Pilot (a hidden category) to the article itself. The second phase of the Article Feedback Tool project has started, and this time we're trying to include all of the articles students are working on. Please test out the Article Feedback Tool, as well. The new version just deployed, so any bug reports or feedback will be appreciated by the tech team working on it.

And of course, don't forget to check in on the students, give them constructive feedback, praise them for positive contributions, award them {{The WikiPen}} if they are doing excellent work, and so on. And if you haven't done so, make sure any students you are mentoring are listed on your mentor profile.

beonex

Hi, can you help me again with the Beonex article to argue why the references (self-published by ben bucksch) are OK as they describe only features and that this is ok for software... I come to my limit of arguments for Hrafn. At least the notability tag can be removed since I have enough external (notable) reference included. Or? mabdul 17:03, 4 April 2011 (UTC)

I've removed the notability tag as there are sufficient articles mentioning the browser. I don't want to remove the other tags as I'm not looking to start an edit war with Hrafn. The article would survive an afd, so it's probably not worth the effort to try and resolve the issue with Hrafn. If you need anything else, let me know. Smallman12q (talk) 21:08, 4 April 2011 (UTC)

I found a (good quality) logo from version 3 (colored). Tim already replied me again. The browser is not a rtos although the requirements are really small. Screen connection, keyboard connection and a tcp protocol (which he said could also be created through SMS! really flexible system!) I will build this all in, but I think I will need another week or so. There is really many information available and I will be able to get this article to GA! This application is really interesting. As Tim stated: he was asked by STNC and he started a day after MS overtook, he never heard of HitchHiker. That was a really fast transformation o.O mabdul 08:11, 18 April 2011 (UTC)
That's interesting. Ask if he's be willing to put up a small historical summary piece at his site. That way we could cite the details in the article. Great to see that he's responsive though=D. There's also a nice eps vector at logotypes which you can convert to svg for the article.Smallman12q (talk) 13:36, 18 April 2011 (UTC)

I uploaded the logo of emissary ;) Yeah I also did found this image. But the logo doesn't interest me until the article is stable enough for main space.

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 in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. MacMedtalkstalk 18:57, 25 April 2011 (UTC)
