I'd seriously like to know how it broke the rules.. they only state that he can only carry himself & I item IN the boat, and as even an infant knows that a goose swims, its actually obvious, especially as he is a farmer, that he would tether the goose to the outside of the boat & let it swim across.. its not my fault that I came up with a way simpler answer than you did, so why not leave my answer on the page, to allow dialogue on this subject?

Wikilinking[edit]

Hi, and thanks for your work on the English Wikipedia.

I noticed an article you worked on. Just a short note to point out that we don’t normally link:

  • dates
  • years
  • commonly known geographical terms (including well-known country-names), and
  • common terms you’d look up in a dictionary (unless significantly technical).

This applies to infoboxes, too.

Thanks, and my best wishes.

Earth[edit]

DON'T REVERT TO "THE EARTH"[edit]

please, it hurts my eyes.

Hey, I see you're into space stuff. You might wanna check out my new wikiproject, Wikipedia:WikiProject Cosmology. Thanks Tetra quark (talk) 02:45, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

you're being insistent[edit]

please stop. Saying "Earth" is enough, and it is not wrong, so there is no reason to revert it Tetra quark (talk) 04:36, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

This issue should be discussed at Talk:Earth rather than here. Also, neither "it hurts my eyes" or "it is better this way" are substantive arguments. Spacepotato (talk) 21:30, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Earth[edit]

Please beware of WP:3RR. I know you mean well but until there is an established consensus let's try not to clutter the page history and get everyone all worked up. This is all very trivial, anyway. Clearly the talk page discussion is going to need closure to settle the matter. — MusikAnimal talk 05:46, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Buchstab function[edit]

Two things to work on:

  • The article tacitly says this is named after someone named Buchstab. Who is that? The article doesn't say.
  • No other articles link to this new article.

It's named after Александр Адольфович Бухштаб [1] who has an obituary at doi:10.1070/RM1991v046n01ABEH002726. Spacepotato (talk) 07:16, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
