Hi again. I think it's fine to add an entry before you've finished formatting - as long as you don't mind the fact that others will immediately edit the article to add the formatting. Some people like this and some don't. If you prefer that didn't happen, then it's best not to save it until you're finished as there is a large chance others will edit it once you've saved it. The manual of style includes the disclaimer "Writers are NOT expected or required to follow all or any of these rules: the joy of wiki editing is that perfection is not required", so be bold and don't worry about not getting it perfect. There are many people here who prefer making these edits to the articles others have written so it's fine to just do as much as you can or as much as you want to. I hope you enjoy editing here!

Regarding the annulus: the article is currently a little misleading. The annulus can be defined in a number of ways, which are equivalent geometrically. Someday someone will fix the article to be a little clearer about this. Loren Rosen 05:14, 5 Nov 2003 (UTC)
Also, I'm going to put Leon Henkin on the List of mathematicians. He's at least as well-known as some of the others on the list.

Brian Fawcett book.....answer to question[edit]

The wikilink in the Brian Fawcett article had a misspelling in it...What should have been too was written to. So when you clicked on it and wrote the article, the article had that misspelling.

I went into the Brian Fawcett article, fixed the spelling, and moved what you wrote into Cambodia: A Book For People Who Find Television too Slow.

I then created a redirect from the misspelled article to the correctly spelled article.

Does that make sense? Kingturtle 08:08, 5 Nov 2003 (UTC)

Jan Lukasiewicz - reply[edit]

Thanks for your comment about the spelling of his colleague's name Leśniewski. I have little confidence in the accuracy of my spelling, I am sure yours has a better chance of being right. I changed the page to reflect it, and with (I hope) your agreement copied your mesage & my reply into the article's talk page. EdH 03:00, 8 Nov 2003 (UTC)
