Welcome[edit]

Hi and welcome to wikipedia. I noticed you had a blank talk page, so I decided to welcome you. I hope you like it and decide to stay. Here are some handy links for newcomers.

Also you can sign your name on talk pages and vote pages with three tildes like this ~~~, and your name with a time stamp with four like this ~~~~. Howabout1 22:24, 1 May 2005 (UTC)

Mood?[edit]

What happens when you click on the mood image on my userpage? Is it still obscured? Strange. I've never had anyone else complain, and I understand I'm not using any non-standard wiki code. -- Longhair 04:49, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

The weather in London[edit]

You know you should not edit the weather in London [1]. But you did so twice. Have a 15 minute break, as you are blocked. --Henrygb 01:58, 9 February 2006 (UTC)

Humph. Some people have no sense of humor. (Just kidding!) 00:03, 11 February 2006 (UTC)

Signature[edit]

You can go here if you want a tutorial for coloring, etc.

Do you have any familiarity with HTML and wiki-code? It's very simple, I did mine using <sup> and </sup> tags to put my Hello in between, so it stays on top (with a link to my talk page). As for Fetofs, the only thing I've done is to put a link to Wikipedia:Esperanza using [[WP:EA|<font color=green>e</font>]]. However, don't copy my signature! Fetofs Hello! 10:24, 15 February 2006 (UTC)

Please Sign[edit]

Hello. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. You may also push the signature button Button sig2.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your name and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you! Alphachimp talk 18:23, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for your help[edit]

I noticed you've been doing good work on many of the articles chosen as Mormon Collaborations. I wanted to drop you a note and give you props. I look forward to working on many more articles with you in the future. uriah923(talk) 02:02, 15 October 2006 (UTC)

This note is the only sort of props I know that I can give. I guess you might consider putting a lot of work into an article and then seeing it dubbed "good" or "featured" as a sort of compensation. That's happened to a couple of the Mormon Collaboration pieces... --uriah923(talk) 02:35, 16 October 2006 (UTC)

Succession boxes[edit]

Hello - I've finally some time to twiddle today. Can you tell me what you mean by "making the succession box fit into tight spaces" ? Perhaps have you solved this already? Cheers. THEPROMENADER 09:04, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

BoM Linguistics[edit]

I took a look at the article. It seems to need a lot of organizational work. I suggest you add it to the Mormon Collaboration list. uriah923(talk) 18:15, 30 January 2007 (UTC)

Style note[edit]

Hi. Just a note about this edit. Per style conventions, one should not use links in section names (they also look ugly :) Instead, one should find a way to embed them naturally within the body of text. Small thing, but worth noting. :) Cheers, Oleg Alexandrov (talk) 05:04, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

Correction on edit[edit]

Hi, Just wanted to mention a small correction in your edit. The quotation from Gödel, Escher, Bach actually reads "Is the soul greater than the hum of its parts?" which is a Spoonerism, meaning that an alternate sentence arises by switching two phonemes. In this case the alternate sentence is derived by switching the "s" sound (from "soul") and the "huh" sound (from "hum") to form "Is the whole greater than the sum of its parts?"! So in this case, "hum" is not a typographical mistake as you mentioned in your edit. I corrected the mistake and thought you'd like to know. Aravind Alwan 05:38, 24 March 2007 (UTC)

Linguistics and the Book of Mormon[edit]

Partially due to your vote, Linguistics and the Book of Mormon has been selected as the Mormon collaboration of the month. I look forward to working with you on the article. uriah923(talk) 21:02, 2 April 2007 (UTC)

Novel-related news
  • Devil May Care, written by Sebastian Faulks ("writing as Ian Fleming"), has become Penguin Books fastest selling hardcover fiction title. It is the latest installment in the book series about British secret agent James Bond and was released to coincide with the 100th anniversary of late Bond creator Ian Fleming's birthday on May 28, 1908.
  • Me Cheeta: the Autobiography, written by a ghostwriter, is the autobiography of Cheeta the Chimp who is listed in the Guinness World Records as the oldest recorded non-human primate at the age of 76. He has appeared in various movie roles which included twelve Tarzan movies and even battled addiction to alcohol and cigars. The book is not published until October 1, but judges for the 2008 Guardian First Book Award were sent a early version and were so impressed that they have included it on the 10-strong longlist.
  • Stephenie Meyer, who is listed by Time magazine as one of its 100 most influential people of 2008, has decided not to continue with writing her draft for Midnight Sun after 12 chapters of the unfinished manuscript were leaked on the internet.
Current debates
  • Categories for Discussion has a series of discussions about whether to categorize certain specific types of fictional characters: double agents, dictators, characters with eidetic memory, etc. Advice from any Novels project members would be valuable in assisting them.
  • WikiProject Media franchises aims to help editors with the coordination of articles within the thousands of media franchises which exist and has requested input from our members. They are currently discussing a naming convention for franchise articles. Since this may affect one or more articles in our Novel project, they would like to get opinions before implimenting any changes.
From the Members

With the Newsletter being almost three months overdue, I have decided to take on the position of Editor to make sure it reaches you regularly on time each month. The Newsletter is meant to inspire and encourage our team of Editors and so my goal shall be to make it informative and interesting each issue.

We now have many positions vacant in our Project Team, so we are looking for members who have the time and interest to take on the various roles, details of which can be found at the Job Centre. Shortly a Coordinator nominations notice shall also be sent out to all members, which will commence the annual Coordinator selection process.

Next month's Newsletter will include a message from our Coordinator Maria, who will introduce herself and speak on our forthcoming elections for extra Coordinators.

Our last newsletter's challenge The Pure Land was completed by our member Maclean25, who also provided us with tipline news for this newsletter.

  • The first person to start the article is mentioned in the next newsletter. This month's article is Leslie Ann Moore's first book in her fantasy 'Griffin's Daughter' trilogy, which was named by the Independent Book Publishers Association as the 2008 Ben Franklin Award winner for Best First Fiction, Griffin's Daughter.
    Note: This article was previously deleted due to lack of notability, but that now can be established since winning this award.

Formula[edit]

Thanks for fixing some junk in Formula. It was introduced in the preceding edit an hour earlier, along with other errors I have fixed. If you spot clear nonsense like this in an article then it's often a good idea to click "history" and see whether the page has been vandalized recently. In this case all of it could have been fixed by reverting the preceding edit [2], for example by clicking "undo". PrimeHunter (talk) 02:08, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

Stalemate[edit]

Hi, I've undone your recent edit to Stalemate - the 4 diagrams are meant to use some of the dead space to the right of the TOC, because even in a 2x2 square they are taller than the section "Simple examples" to which they relate. But thanks for taking an interest in the article. -- Philcha (talk) 20:58, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

tenjiku[edit]

Hi Weird,

With your edit at tenjiku shogi, you're saying that if a lion is surrounded by other pieces, it cannot be used to pass a turn. AFAIK that is not true of Chu. Do you have a ref? kwami (talk) 21:04, 19 July 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, I don't know where I got that. In WP-ja, it just says that you can move to an adjacent square, then back or to some other adjacent square, or you can jump to anything in a two-square radius. kwami (talk) 22:46, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

Wikiproject Shogi[edit]

Hi OneWeirdDude,

I hope you're still interested in working on shogi-related stuff. It's nice to run into other editors on Wikipedia who are actual shogi players. I think there are lots of ways that many of the shogi-articles already on Wikipedia can be improved and there are lots of new articles that can be created. I see that you were working on an article called "81 Dojo", but stopped before it was completed. I'm trying to create some articles on my own too, but there's seems to be so many that need to be created that it's hard to figure out where to begin. Personally, I think it would be better if there was some kind of structure to work within where people really interested in shogi and who know alot about it could get together and discuss shogi-related articles, etc. which is why I made a proposal to start a new Wikiproject called Wikiproject Shogi. It hasn't generated much interest so far, but please check it out and let me know what you think. Of course, it's Wikipedia so everybody is welcome to participate, but it would also be nice to have actual shogi players involved too for advice and suggestions. - Marchjuly (talk) 01:11, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for supporting that proposal. Please feel free to contribute in any way that you can. So far, only four editors have expressed support for this idea which is probably not enough to start a new project from scratch. It may, however, be enough to be taken on as a task force by an already established Wikiproject or Wikiprojects. Face-smile.svg - Marchjuly (talk) 04:36, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

  • e - the identity element
  • f - general function
  • g - general element of a group (usually G); also a second function if needed
  • h (and H) - when we need another one; also for the lowercase, the increment in the definition of the derivative (which you may also know as Δx); also a third function if needed
  • k - maybe a third element of a group, maybe also a constant
  • M - an upper bound on magnitude (cf. Weierstrass M-test)
  • N - a normal subgroup
  • n - a normal vector
  • p - general prime; general polynomial function
  • q - a second general prime or polynomial function; also maybe a general quaternion; quotient
  • r - remainder
  • s - arc length (so ds is an arc length element)
  • t - a tangent vector; also a general parameter
  • T - a linear map (S and U may be extra ones)
  • V - a general region in R3; a general vector space (in that case W is probably another one)

  • X - a general random variable (also Y, etc.)
  • γ - a parametrisation of a curve
  • δ - a second small positive number in analysis, usually dependent on ε
