# User talk:Woollymammoth

## Welcome

Hello, Woollymammoth, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date. If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Questions, ask me on my talk page, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions.

If you are interested in Ukraine-related themes, you may want to check out the Ukraine Portal, particularly the Portal:Ukraine/New article announcements and Portal:Ukraine/Ukraine-related Wikipedia notice board. The New article announcements board is probably the most important and the most attended one. Please don't forget to anounce there the new articles you create. Adding both boards to your watchlist is probably a good idea.

Finally, in case you are interested, similar boards exist at Russia portal as many editors contribute to topics related to both countries. The respective boards there are: Portal:Russia/New article announcements and Portal:Russia/Russia-related Wikipedia notice board. Of course there are also many other portals at Wikipedia or you may just get right into editing.

Again, welcome!—dima /sb.tk/ 03:28, 21 June 2006 (UTC)

## Linear regression

I agree with you that this article could be substantially improved, in terms of both writing and organization. I think it would be great if you would edit boldly, either directly or from the French translation. Jeremy Tobacman 01:54, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

Hello. I appreciate your contributions to linear regression. I also have these two criticisms:

• You're using too many capital letters. See Wikipedia:Manual of Style on section headings. An initial letter should not be capitalized just because it's in a section heading; that conflicts with Wikipedia's conventions.
${\vec X}=\,$
${\vec X}=\langle f_{1}({\vec x}),f_{1}({\vec x}),\dots ,f_{n}({\vec x})\rangle \,$
The latter is standard. Michael Hardy 23:00, 24 February 2007 (UTC)
I agree with Michael. You need to read a bit about Wikipedia's style. For example, new comments on talk pages go at the bottom. Please read up a bit before editing again. — Chris53516 (Talk) 19:12, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

Dear Woollymammoth: I see that you are a recent contributor to Regression analysis. Would you consider giving an opinion for or against the following Talk:Regression analysis#Proposed lead and any comments you might wish to leave? The reasons are listed there. My thanks. --Thomasmeeks 13:28, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

Thank you for your comments and revision of the above, Woollymammoth. May I have your permission to list you at the top of "Proposed lead" (in support of the proposed lead)? Regards, Thomasmeeks 14:32, 5 March 2007 (UTC)
Thank you on your most recent response, Woollymammoth. I am going to leave as is at top of that section: no names (even mine) except the person who blocked earlier lead Edits. The latter was a blessing in disguise, b/c I cut down the wordiness on what I first had by the time I finally put Edit in the article. That was replaced by another very good Edit (which I'll attempt to do some very minor improvements on). When you and my other friend joined the discussion on the Talk page, it assured that a much-improved lead would be installed. Thx again for that. I hope you continue to offer improvements on the article. In any case, best wishes. --Thomasmeeks 20:16, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

They are discussing Kyiv/Kiev spelling again at Talk:Kiev/naming. Maybe you may be interested. Bandurist 22:15, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

## Ukrainian grammar

Thanks for your excellent work on the article. It is some of the best English-language documentation of Ukrainian that I've seen. There's the Routledge grammar, and there's this, and below that the available materials are really pretty deficient. Молодець. eritain (talk) 01:44, 19 April 2008 (UTC)

I am agree that your article is excellent. Good work! Maybe I seem to you borry but "відьм" is not right. Yes, people would understand what you mean, but you can enter in Ukrainian Google word "відьм" and it would ask you about "відьом". There is no "відьм" in all Ukrainian part of Internet and nobody says so.

## License tagging for Image:Mariampilska Bohomatir.jpg

Thanks for uploading Image:Mariampilska Bohomatir.jpg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information; to add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 17:05, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

## Friedrich Kellner

I just sent you an email, but in case it does not get through to you, I thought I should write to you here, as well. I am hoping you can help me with the Friedrich Kellner article, to translate it into Ukrainian. I have a condensed version of the article that I can send to you (about 1500 words). Thank you, Scott Rskellner (talk) 00:19, 14 December 2009 (UTC)

## A Request for Help

Hi there Woollymanmoth :), I noticed your username on Translators Available Ukranian to English. I was wondering if you could help with updating Riaz Ahmed Gohar Shahi on the Ukranian Wikipedia? Riaz Ahmed Gohar Shahi on the English Wikipedia has been majorly revamped- particularly, its being treated as a BLP now, since no one has been able to find evidence of his death. I'm sorry to say I know little Ukranian, so I'd really appreciate your help in this :), although I understand if you don't have the time. Thanks in advance!

## Article Feedback deployment

Hey Woollymammoth; I'm dropping you this note because you've used the article feedback tool in the last month or so. On Thursday and Friday the tool will be down for a major deployment; it should be up by Saturday, failing anything going wrong, and by Monday if something does :). Thanks, Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 23:53, 13 March 2013 (UTC)
