Using citations[edit]

Hi Wyn.

  • Generally, we try to minimize the use of citations in an article's introduction (see WP:LEADCITE). There's no need for a citation there unless statements are made that are not made again in the body of the article and it's generally good practice to summarize in the introduction without a reference and then go into detail in the body of the article with appropriate sources. I mention this especially because of the large number of citations in the Li-Fi article's introduction.
  • You can avoid repeating the text of a source multiple times in an article by naming a <ref> tag, for example <ref name="Economist">, in the first occurrence of the reference and then using simply <ref name="Economist"/> thereafter. You can read a little more here.

Duplicate content[edit]

Thanks for the great contributions you're making to this project. I recommend avoiding the duplication of content in multiple articles, e.g. in LED lamp and Light-emitting diode (and Smartphone and Consumer Electronics Show). It is better to post content once and link to it where it is appropriate (use anchors or see also where necessary). I think that LED lamp is most appropriate for the Energy Star content. Thanks.

Speedy deletion nomination of Laser diode lamp[edit]

Hello Wyn.junior,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Laser diode lamp for deletion, because it seems to be inappropriate for a variety of reasons.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. A2-33 (talk) 14:16, 18 January 2014 (UTC)

License tagging for File:Li-1st equipment.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Li-1st equipment.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) 22:05, 20 February 2014 (UTC)

Na-S and Li-S Batteries[edit]

Thanks for the note and not being too upset. Few understand the magnitude of the research literature and most overvalue press releases from researchers vying for cash/attention. These and other considerations underpin several of Wikipedia guidelines, specifically:

  • WP:SECONDARY: a preference, not requirement, for secondary references (reviews, books), not simply journal articles.
  • WP:NOTNEWS: avoidance of press releases. If some press release is really so awesome, it would be amplified by scholarly societies and Wikipedia would pick it up.

By not following these guidelines, one risks WP:UNDUE, giving the reader a false impression of the importance of a report.

Now about these batteries that interest you:

  • Almost 1800 articles and patents have appeared on Na-S batteries. 73 since January 1, 2013
  • Almost 700 papers and patents have appeared on Li-S batteries. 296 since january 1, 2013.

So now you see the predicament.--Smokefoot (talk) 13:28, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Li-1st equipment.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Li-1st equipment.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. 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 any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 08:42, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 7[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Lithium-ion battery, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Northwestern (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Edit summaries[edit]

Information icon Hi there.

When editing an article on Wikipedia, there is a small field labeled "Edit summary" shown under the main edit box. It looks like this:

Edit summary (Briefly describe your changes)

 

The text written here will appear on the Recent changes page, in the page revision history, on the diff page, and in the watchlists of users who are watching that article. See m:Help:Edit summary for full information on this feature.

Filling in the edit summary field greatly helps your fellow contributors in understanding what you changed, so please always fill in the edit summary field. If you are adding a section, please do not just keep the previous section's header in the Edit summary field – please fill in your new section's name instead. Thank you.

Disambiguation link notification for March 19[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Light-emitting diode, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages 2-D and 3-D (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Speedy deletion nomination of Template:Orbit Altitude Classifications[edit]

A tag has been placed on Template:Orbit Altitude Classifications requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section T3 of the criteria for speedy deletion because it is an unused duplicate of another template, or a hard-coded instance of another template. After seven days, if it is still unused and the speedy deletion tag has not been removed, the template will be deleted.

If the template is not actually the same as the other template noted, please feel free to remove the speedy deletion tag and please consider putting a note on the template's page explaining how this one is different so as to avoid any future mistakes (<noinclude>{{substituted}}</noinclude>).

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page's talk page, where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. Ninney (talk) 18:49, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:LightRadio, a Rubik's cube sized cell site.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:LightRadio, a Rubik's cube sized cell site.jpg. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Peripitus (Talk) 08:05, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

Looking for help with Landline article[edit]

Hi Wyn.junior, I'm reaching out to you because you previously made some edits to the landline article. I've recently posted some outreach at Talk:Landline about a section there that contains an unsourced mention of Verizon that seems unreasonable to me. As I mention in my Talk page note, I'm an employee of Verizon, and so don't make any edits myself. If you have time, do you think you could take a look at my request and, if my request seems reasonable to you, remove the language I mentioned?

Thanks so much, VZBob (talk) 20:45, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi again, thank you for removing this unsourced information.
Much appreciated, VZBob (talk) 14:15, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:Picture of Prof. Harald Haas.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Picture of Prof. Harald Haas.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. kelapstick(bainuu) 11:24, 1 June 2015 (UTC)
