A barnstar for you![edit]

Original Barnstar Hires.png The Original Barnstar
For all your work improving wikipedia! Fewq567 (talk) 07:50, 1 July 2011 (UTC)


Thank you very much!!!! ---- Steve Quinn (talk) 04:09, 2 July 2011 (UTC)

Reference fields[edit]

This might save your typing time: "cite journal" does not need (i.e. those fields are clutter)

  • issn,
  • publisher,
  • location,
  • id.
  • number of pages
  • issue No (not a clutter, but may be skipped)
  • last page (not a clutter, but first page is well enough)
  • all authors (First Author et al. is well acceptable and is even obligatory in medical literature)

If there is a personal url giving full text for free - great; add something like |format=free download pdf
(the text in that field could be anything, it is just a comment). If the url is from the publisher and there is already a doi then no need for url (doi link is better). Accessdate is only needed if you have 3-rd party urls (doi or pmid links do not expire and thus don't need accessdate). Cheers Materialscientist (talk) 00:57, 9 October 2009 (UTC)

Autopatrolled[edit]

At Crusio's request, you now have the autopatrolled user right--the new pages you create will be automatically marked as patrolled DGG ( talk ) 16:18, 25 August 2010 (UTC)

Thank you both, Crusio and DGG, for this user right. It is nice to know that I am a trusted editor. ---- Steve Quinn (talk) 03:04, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

Greetings from the Contribution Team[edit]

Greetings! Please excuse this intrusion on your talk page, and allow me to invite you to participate on the newly-formed Wikipedia Contribution Team, or WP:CONTRIB for short! The goal of the team is to attract more and better contributions specifically to the English Wikipedia, as well as to help support the fundraising team in our financial and editing contribution goals. We have lots of stuff to work on, from minor and major page building, to wikiproject outreach, article improvement, donor contacting, and more -- in fact, part of our mission is to empower team members to make their own projects to support our mission. Some of our projects only take a few minutes to work on, while others can be large, multi-person tasks -- whatever your interest level, we're glad to have you. If this sounds of interest to you, please visit WP:CONTRIB and sign onto the team. Even if there does not appear to be anything that really speaks out as being work you'd like to do, I'd encourage you to join and follow the project anyway, as the type of work we'll be doing will certainly evolve and change over time. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me, or ask on the Contribution talk page. Regards, DanRosenthal Wikipedia Contribution Team 19:51, 10 November 2010 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged revisions, underwent a two-month trial which ended on 15 August 2010. Its continued use is still being discussed by the community, you are free to participate in such discussions. Many articles still have pending changes protection applied, however, and the ability to review pending changes continues to be of use.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under level 1 pending changes and edits made by non-reviewers to level 2 pending changes protected articles (usually high traffic articles). Pending changes was applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

For the guideline on reviewing, see Wikipedia:Reviewing. Being granted reviewer rights doesn't grant you status nor change how you can edit articles even with pending changes. The general help page on pending changes can be found here, and the general policy for the trial can be found here.

If you do not want this user right, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles 05:14, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

work= parameter[edit]

Steve, could you please stop filling the citation templates improperly like you did here? Read the {{cite web}} documentation (and that of related templates if relevant) if you need to familiarize yourself with how to fill them. Specifically, you are using the "|work=" parameter as a description of the link, while it should be used to specify with work the link is part of.

For example, if linking to http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/relativ/muon.html#c1, the citation should be

As the page was written in (date=1998) by (author=C.R. Nave ). We're referring to (title=Muon Experiment, Non-Relativistic) part of a larger (work=HyperPhysics), which I have visited today (accessdate=2011-01-12). If you need to make a comment about the source used for some reason, you can make them like this

Or alternatively as

I hope I don't come across as condescending, but it's been annoying me for a while now. I did something about Metamaterials Handbook, but INSPEC and other articles which you edited are in similar need of citation cleanup. Headbomb {talk / contribs / physics / books} 07:48, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

  • Ok I will look into this. And no, you didn't come across as condescending. ---- Steve Quinn (talk) 08:05, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

update help[edit]

Hi Steve,

I noticed that you have updated the Journal of Electronic Materials on several occasions. Would you be so kind as to update the cover image (I would be happy to forward a copy of the current cover) and the impact factor? As both are currently outdated and I do not have a confirmed account, since I do not plan on making regular edits.

I appreciate your help.

Thank you in advance.

A -- Eveaft (talk) 14:01, 2 July 2013‎.

Yes I would be happy to help. If you can leave me a link to cover image that you have in mind I will be glad to upload it to the journal article.---- Steve Quinn (talk) 03:33, 3 July 2013 (UTC)


Thank you. The image can be found at: http://images.springer.com/cda/content/image/cda_displayimage.jpg?SGWID=0-0-16-330660-0. The new journal impact factor is 1.635 according to ISI. I appreciate your help.

A

Thank you for changing the impact factor. How long does it usually take for the new cover image to appear?

We noticed though that when you edited Journal of Electronic Materials, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Electronic, Emitter and Metallization (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Academic publishing[edit]

Hey Steve. So, I'm patrolling around for articles with linkrot problems/bare URLs, and I stumbled on Academic publishing; it looks like the bare URLs are fixed there, unless I'm missing something? Ironholds (talk) 23:16, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

  • Thanks for the heads up. It looks like the bare URLs have been fixed by me around July 4th. I forgot to remove the tag. So I guess I will do so. ---- Steve Quinn (talk) 00:22, 18 July 2013 (UTC)
Also if you don't agree with this let me know, thanks. ---- Steve Quinn (talk) 00:34, 18 July 2013 (UTC)

Automotive Dealership Excellence Awards[edit]

Hey Steve, I am new to Wikipedia.. and writing this article about automotive retail awards in India. This article was created by someone in the past and was deleted. Now I am re-writing it with the references I got from CNBC TV 18 and some of the press communications of the award winners. I want to know whether this is enough for not marking this page for AFD? I am searching online for more relevant articles related to these awards. I am also uploading the picture gallery related to awards. Varuna27 (talk) 11:17, 19 July 2013 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:Materials-logo for materials journal.png)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Materials-logo for materials journal.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 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. Hazard-Bot (talk) 04:11, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Grand Canyon geological mapping[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Grand Canyon geological mapping has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Fork of content already at Geology of the Grand Canyon. Content apparently uncritically copy-pasted from several public domain USGS webpages.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.
