Welcome to WikiProject Europe[edit]

Hi, welcome to WP Europe, glad to have you on board. I see you've put an article up for peer-review. Just wondering if you have dropped a note with Wikipedia:WikiProject Bosnia and Herzegovina. Yes it does exist, I didn't think it did at first which is why there are still some bits of the BiH taskforce around. It is perfectly okay for you to use the European peer review though, it is open to all European-related articles, but you might get a more in-depth responce from members of the BiH project. Good luck though, and again: welcome :). - J Logan t: 19:32, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

A Question[edit]

Oo, well I think if it is "free" then it should be okay, but like images we can't just have permission to use on Wikipedia but for all third parties (pref. under GNU licence). However regardless, with text it is easy to get around the whole issue with a quick copyedit, I'll help with that if you want as I have an interest in the topic. - J Logan t: 07:09, 11 October 2007 (UTC)

Totally, no copyright on information, just the prose. Shouldn't be much of a problem to rewrite it unless there is an awful lot. If you do find there is too much information, just do the basics and leave the link there and people can expand it over time. - J Logan t: 08:47, 11 October 2007 (UTC)
Oh yeah, should be no problem turning them into stubs, hardly got any information. I don't have the time to help right now, but I'll help out as soona s I can on starting the pages up. But I'd suggest a second source be found to fatten them out a bit, I think Amnesty have some good pages. - J Logan t: 16:29, 11 October 2007 (UTC)

About the film "thruth in numbers: the wikipedia story"[edit]

Hello U5K0

I created the article about the film on the French language edition on last May and till today nobody has contested its existence. You talk about the strictness of the English Wikipedia's guidelines, but actually I'm not completely sure. Maybe we've keep it on the French version just because there isn't so much people contributing on our project compared to the English one. So I think the more the community is important and the more the chances having people contesting articles or statements are higher. Maybe I'm wrong and maybe you're right, I admit this subjects are questionable.

But as for your article (I mean the article you created, I know it's not actually yours), maybe we can move it to the Wikipedia namespace till the day the film will become famous enough to be on the main namespace (I think it will happen some days before its release, when television and radio stations will talk about it). That's what I did for OmegaWiki which is not yet enough notable to be in the main namespace. 16@r 13:33, 14 October 2007 (UTC)

I can do do it for you right now. 16@r 13:44, 14 October 2007 (UTC)
voilà: Truth in Numbers: The Wikipedia Story 16@r 13:50, 14 October 2007 (UTC)

Truth in numbers, etc.: Please don't create links from the article space into internal wikipedia's namespaces. `'Míkka 18:21, 29 October 2007 (UTC)

Unfortunately Wikipedia:Truth in Numbers: The Wikipedia Story does not have enough independent reputable references, so I canot tell you whether it may be made into "real" article. Please keep in mind that blogs, wikis, forums, YouTube, personal websites, etc. do not count towards independent wikipedia:reliable sources. Plus there is a rule Wikpedia is not a crystal ball, and to describe a future event it must be ironclad planned (e.g., releases by major film sturios) or generate significant buzz. The wikipedia story is hardly notable yet, judging by mere 157 unique google hits. In other words, the text does not address the objections stated during the deletion. Anyway, as you may decide this is my opinion only. The place for broad disussisons of the restoration of deleted articles is WP:DRV. `'Míkka 21:56, 29 October 2007 (UTC)

re:Truth in numbers article assesment[edit]

Hi. The article is pretty good, except for a few things. Parts of it need to be a tad more NPOV. Also, youtube links and other wiki-sites should not be in the refs. Also, I'd prefer a description rather than a directly copy-and-pasted caption for each segment of the video. It would also be a good idea to include a template on the top that this is a sandbox article rather than a full-fledged real article. It'd be good if we got more people to collabrate. Luckily, that video that is displayed at the top on some computers informs people about the documentary. Unfortuneately, a lot of people might only be searching in mainspace and might not find it as easily. I'd suggest a Requests for Feedback to help you get more opinions about how good the article is. I may have been on Wikipedia for more than a year now, but I've still got a lot of learning to do as well. Thanks. ~AH1(TCU) 00:16, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Image:Mars express.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Image:Mars express.jpg, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done for the following reason:


Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not meet basic Wikipedia criteria may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as an appropriate article, and if you can indicate why the subject of this article is appropriate, you may contest the tagging. To do this, add {{hangon}} on the top of the page and leave a note on [[Talk:Image:Mars express.jpg|the article's talk page]] explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm its subject's notability under the guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. (talk) 09:37, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

ESA images[edit]

I did it in the easiest way, when I uploaded the image I select any policy and later edit the image to choose the correct one (that you can find in the ESA website or editing the image and coping the codes). Onsly 05:28, 3 June 2008 (UTC)


Hi! I see your first language is Slovene. I invite you to join Wikipedia:WikiProject Europe/Slovenia. --Eleassar my talk 08:21, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

ESA History, ESRO[edit]

I can't envisage any, so long as you can fill out the article fully I don't see why there would be any problems with it.- J Logan t: 19:50, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

If its a week, best create it in your userspace first.- J Logan t: 19:52, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

It's sad to say, but the current ESRO text is likely to be deemed an unacceptable copyright violation. The source copyright holder is ESA. For images (at least) ESA does not permit wikipedia to use their copyrighted material in articles. At a minimum, this use on wikipedia requires review by someone more familiar with the issues than I. (sdsds - talk) 18:37, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

ESA article update...[edit]

Hello Any reason why you reverted the small update I had done to the ESA article? As far as I know the official "working languages" of ESA are English and French; ESRIN is the European Space Research Institute which presently is the ESA centre for Earth Observation... anything incorrect about this? Note that I'm only trying to understand the reason not trying to start an argument or a flame war... :)

Thornc (talk) 18:33, 7 August 2008 (UTC)


Hi - a stub template or category which you created has been nominated for deletion or renaming at Wikipedia:Stub types for deletion. The stub type, which was not proposed at Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Proposals, does not meet the standard requirements for a stub type, either through being incorrectly named, ambiguously scoped, or through failure to meet standards relating to the current stub hierarchy or likely size, as explained at Wikipedia:Stub. Please feel free to make any comments at WP:SFD regarding this stub type, and in future, please consider proposing new stub types first! Grutness...wha? 01:55, 17 August 2008 (UTC)

ESA task force[edit]

Well Template:WikiProject Europe has to be updated with a taskforce option for ESA, put a request on its talk page if you can't do it yourself (I can't, well I could try but I'll bugger something up). Category that and infrastructure though comes a poor second to the most important thing: members. Get those on the ESA article, WP:EUR and the Space WikiProjects to sign up and worry about details of the pages later - they'd probably help you.- JLogant: 11:19, 17 August 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for the kind invitation to join your ESA taskforce. Unfortunately, my "expertise" (and I use the term loosely) is in the "Space Race," starting at the end of WWII through the end of NASA's Apollo program. I know very little about the Space Shuttle program (except that it was doomed from the start, given the way the Orbiter was whittled down by Congressional penny-pinchers, and I know next to nothing about the ESA. So I should decline your kind invitation, as I am wholely unqualified to contribute. Thank you, however, for the kind invitation. Jim Simmons (talk) 15:31, 19 August 2008 (UTC)


Thanks for the invite to ESA task force. I will certainly watch what you put together with interest as I have always been interested in anything to do with exploration of space. My main expertize comes from my older relatives work in the USA during the cold war, so I see the ESA as new child, belonging to some other parents. Good luck. Saltysailor (talk) 06:42, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for the invitation, but I will have to hold off from joining your t/f at this time. I've cut down on my wiki editing, and just monitoring a handful of my previous articles and interests. Best regards, Lance.... LanceBarber (talk) 03:46, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

File source problem with File:European Space Agency tight.png[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:European Space Agency tight.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.

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 uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 03:03, 5 September 2009 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sherool (talk) 03:03, 5 September 2009 (UTC)

Ok I sorted it out, to add information about license just go to the image page and hit edit. When you make derivatives of other images found on Wikipedia or Commons you need to make sure you first of all link to the original and attribute the author of the image. Secondly you need to comply with the license terms the original image was released under, in case of the GFDL or CC-BY-SA license this means that you need to release the derivative under the same license. This one was dual licensed so you could have chosen either one of the two licenses, but as long as it's still used here on Wikipedia we might as well dual license the result as well by complying with both licenses (for people using the image on another site it's more convenient to just pick the CC license for example, but here we already have the full text of the license handy and such so no extra hassle).

Colds7ream (talk) 21:17, 17 February 2010 (UTC)

I just felt a need to thank you for the assistance, i managed to miss that on top, as also modules, and some other things and now i have similar problem : - Do you have to make a page for redirection to work ? If i have a page 'one', do i have to make a page 'two', or just define redirection to work on 'two' to 'one' ? --ThorX (talk) 21:41, 18 March 2010 (UTC)

About links in title sections : what are the objections ? It is much easier to navigate, and it allows you access to two levels of complexity in one spot. My only concern is Cupola, because i missed it somehow, and i don't have idea what to put in the Cupola section as an excuse for it's existence ..--ThorX (talk) 13:32, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

Do you have a solution that would allow me not to scroll up 3 or 4 pages ? I agree in the principle, there might be a problem with various implementations. Point taken. Can we now watch it, and let it annoy us, until we find a solution without getting lost in the process ?--ThorX (talk) 13:42, 21 March 2010 (UTC)
I did that, because i hoped i could get rid of modules list at the beginning, and missed Cupola. There is also talk about more planned modules, and before both of those are up, they will be info, no more rumour. I will stay away for a couple of hours, just in case :) —Preceding unsigned comment added by ThorX13 (talkcontribs) 13:54, 21 March 2010 (UTC)
Makes sense. I can't really stay away, but will hover above the experiments, NASA part with prepared references. Could you check a bit ESA experiments and science ? I will keep massing data from NASA and Energia - there are already some experiments with articles, and now it's almost possible to link one name to another .. --ThorX (talk) 14:09, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

I think, that the worst is behind us. Just a bit more shoveling.--ThorX (talk) 14:19, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

Please consider a table, no more sorting. Location should be just one field in the facility record. If we sort them by modules, it will be hard to follow where they are, since this things move around a lot. NASA has a special team, just to follow them, if i remember correctly. We don't. Think about it, i will too, we must find a very compact solution, with close to zero maintenance. Plus someone might come with the idea of different sorting, and we will have a mess. I like it the way it is, for now, you did a great job, don't overdo it, perhaps some tweaking, if it is possible, and if it makes sense, be gentle --ThorX (talk) 01:56, 22 March 2010 (UTC) About links in title: how about some prose under title, like 'ISS Module Columbus is a main ESA science facility'. Word ordering is intentionally and purposely changed to give it a flow. Nuff talk..--ThorX (talk) 02:11, 22 March 2010 (UTC)

Hardware, or anything else, should be grouped from an atom up. In case of hardware that would be facility, so hierarchy goes like ISS/module/rack/facility/experiment, and this is also structure for the table i'm after - no more sections, we are already two levels deep, bad enough, but at least it is levelled. I'll chew more on this, while dumping in experiments ..--ThorX (talk) 02:41, 22 March 2010 (UTC)

Very nice job with the last addition of ESA experiments. You might have noticed normalized new article title pattern, which goes like this - ABBREVIATION (ISS Experiment). Some experiments already started to link, i expect more of that to happen in the future. We will solve ambiguity problems on a case per case bases, not that many, if there is (ISS Experiment) addition to the title. I would recommend similar approach to new articles in facilities section, like (ISS Facility), exact word doesn't matter, we can do mass search and replace later, as long as it differs from anything else. I will finish with NASA, and then look into it.--ThorX (talk) 05:09, 23 March 2010 (UTC)

This seams to be working :) Can you please check this talk ?

Task forces and improving space coverage[edit]

Hi, as I'm sure you are probably aware the pace of improvement on space-related articles is very slow, there appears a very low participation-rate compared to the volume of related articles and there seems to be little coordination compared to other topics.

I was inspired part by your ESA task force and part by what other wikiprojects have done like Wikipedia:WikiProject_Military_history to look at how we can improve participation in developing space-related articles (including of ESA).

Anyway I've laid out some opening thoughts over on WikiProject Space to see what people think, so I just wondered if you want to make some comments,

Brilliant picture addition to the page. It follows my advice as a leisurely person to other leisurely people who want to look busy. ' Wear gloves ! ' then you'll look like your working hard regardless of what your actually doing !Penyulap talk 09:02, 4 June 2011 (UTC)

I hope you won't mind, but I'd like to put the orbital debris pictures back, the picture of the debris in low earth orbit only has debris, and little else, the model from further away shows essentially the same thing plus the two rings of different inclinations around the geostationary positions, which illustrates the many comm-sats that we use in Geosync orbit, and the similar orbit on the solar plane, it may prompt further interest for the readers on that basis. But if you conduct a poll in the talkpage about it I'll keep it as whatever picture people on a whole like better.

The other picture, I'll move back to the right hand side to keep the existing form of the entire page, where pictures are all on the right hand side. Penyulap talk 18:27, 6 June 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for your ongoing assistance, if you do have an interest, do you know/can you find out, how to describe the second ring that is not used by the usual TV satellites ? i don't think it is their graveyard orbit, or maybe they drift into it due to some kind of tidal action, there is so much work to be done, I'd love your help if you are interested in orbital debris,. also, even if I do it myself, but have got pointers from you, I'll credit you with finding the information, as you can see in the edit summary already, I give credit where it's due. I don't know much about giving awards yet though, lol, I'm just too busy to find out !!! Penyulap talk 19:53, 6 June 2011 (UTC)

Hello again U5K0, it's good to have some ongoing help, I like your editing very much. I am concerned about the double photograph, I'm impressed with your knowledge about doing that sort of thing, but I am worried it will be a target for reversion by 'one click' editors. I have a vague recollection about uniformity within articles, and most everything needing to follow that uniformity unless wide consensus is reached on the talkpage first. You know I'm very agreeable to everyones suggestions, but i think other people will revert it, and rightly so, as it's contrary to the guidelines for editing. I have also been wondering how to accommodate all the additional photographs, but for now, until either you or I research the rules better, I think it's best you pop them back to the same way all the images are done... how do you feel about that? I think it sucks personally. But if we don't read up about the rules, we're victims of our own laziness.. lolz. Penyulap talk 22:15, 7 June 2011 (UTC)

Fair enough, lets leave it as it is for now, however I must insist on the captioning, there is a 'credit where it is due' clause of my own, the astrophotographer who took the photo through his telescope must have recognition, astrophotography fans may want to know his name and more about his work, thats only fair. I also asked him to review my original work, the addition of his image, captioning (and alt description for the blind, or thats what i think it's for), so I'll want those elements returned. Is that cool ?, would you like to do it, in a way that fits into your double picture format ?Penyulap talk 00:46, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

Hello again U5K0, I'm worried about some of the edits you've made, I'd like you to reconsider if you wouldn't mind, I'd like to add the following ideas for your consideration in deciding what you'd like to do...

  • The sightings sections and text are a natural flow-on from the education section, so teachers can find that information straight away. The cultural outreach section would stop some of them reading further, like a speedhump.
  • Talking to the pop or martha steward is not educational, and doesn't belong in that section, cultural outreach is one of the purposes, a small one, thats true, so it goes at the end of that section.
  • Just like you I'm not interested in reading about biology of lifeforms that can survive in outerspace, and it has nothing to do with the ISS, but some people are interested in that sort of thing, so the links are important for them to continue research after hearing about some lifeform that survived on the ISS. It's not for us, we think that stuff is a bore, it's for them. adding those links helps people find what they are looking for on wiki, there are many articles called orphans that are good articles, but nobody can find them, so they may as well not exist.

It's good to see your taking an interest in the ISS though, keep up the good work. see if you can find things to expand the sections I have started, some other editor(s) have identified my unfinished work there. Penyulap talk 22:07, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

I'm really glad that I can help keep your spirits up ! at the moment I'm having problems that prevent me from wanting to edit altogether, so I'm very glad I can be of help in some way. Don't give up, the future is bright !

Now, onto matters at hand,. about the new sections I made, when I did so, I had in mind material that isn't yet inside the article, stuff still to come, and really, I've completed work on the index, it will last in the format I last left it for a few years at least.

There are things that have nothing to do with education, like that twit martha steward i found, sorry, she's not my cup of tea, but she is appealing to many, popular, and like the pope, needs mentioning on that basis. So there are things that come under culture that are really diverse. Like the pope. And movies, songs, things like that referring to the ISS, it's all under cultural outreach. I didn't have any time to add links to those people, you could work there, also, if you can find any effective way to get google to find other famous people, or a list somewhere, you could pick out the ones that are famous, but please leave out boring ones like politicians, they all call the station and nobody wants to read about it, it's useless fluff. Besides famous people there are other things that go into that category, but I'll get to that later. You could find and add a video for a classroom linkup session. although you'd need to be prepared to ask for permission to have it released into the public domain, I've been doing that and I'm waiting on two responses and have had success with two others, and added them to wiki. All you need to do is write an email and ask them to release an image you want into the public domain, or give you one that they want to release. Just be polite, and explain that anyone from that time will be able to draw all over their work and so forth, I told Ralph kids would draw aliens on his pic for example. It wasn't the original one I asked for but it didn't matter as it does the job for that section. Anyhow, a classroom video of an ISS linkup as an example for teachers to know what to expect and so forth would be cool. See if you can get an overseas one, I was watching a Japanese one, the kids were all speaking in a foreign language (which was english) which is good because that's one more thing that they were learning in that class.

Thanks for cropping the photograph for me ! Penyulap talk 23:05, 12 June 2011 (UTC)
