A diagram of a sunrise or sunset, showing the effects of atmospheric refraction.

Positive sense of azimuth[edit]

Your helpful diagram is in use in the article azimuth. It shows the azimuth increasing in the counterclockwise direction, i.e. zero at north and 90° at west. This is the opposite sense of the usual convention for horizontal coordinates. I believe this could be corrected by simply reversing the diagram from right to left and adjusting the text. Do you agree? --Reuben (talk) 18:16, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

That's a good find -- I never noticed this before. I updated someone elses drawing from Italian to English without realizing that the direction was reversed. I'll go ahead and flip the diagram. Thanks for letting me know! TWCarlson (talk) 11:17, 7 May 2012 (UTC)
Looks great, thanks! --Reuben (talk) 18:55, 7 May 2012 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:Indiana State Fair stage roof mid-collapse.png)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Indiana State Fair stage roof mid-collapse.png. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of '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.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
