[Past versions]

Don't want to embarrass you but this "World Chess Federation" (WCF) is an absolute joke. I'd never even heard of them before today, nor have I heard of their "world champion" Stan Vaughan. The world chess governing body is called FIDE. MaxBrowne (talk) 13:06, 27 October 2013 (UTC) Chess players never talk about the "WCF". The guy's a total kook. http://www.chessbase.com/Home/TabId/211/PostId/4009383/the-april-fools-prank-that-was-and-wasnt-040413.aspx MaxBrowne (talk) 13:55, 27 October 2013 (UTC)

Interesting. I knew it was the FIDE so I wondered about the Wikipedia World Chess Federation link page. Amazing that the guy really weights the money put at stakes. --Askedonty (talk) 14:07, 27 October 2013 (UTC)

The Wikipedia Library Survey[edit]

As a subscriber to one of The Wikipedia Library's programs, we'd like to hear your thoughts about future donations and project activities in this brief survey. Thanks and cheers, Ocaasi t | c 15:44, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

Your measurement conversion question[edit]

Hi,

The change I made was because 14,000 sq yd is not an exact measure, so to convert it to 11,706 (if I recall correctly) sq m was overprecise, hence I knocked down the precision in the {{convert}} template.

I'm a long-time WP editor (User:SimonTrew) but have lately been editing under IP as I am using a shared computer. Best wishes 82.22.227.170 (talk) 21:22, 22 December 2013 (UTC)

UPS Hartford hub[edit]

Did you not see this????? http://www.pressroom.ups.com/Fact+Sheets/UPS+Air+Operations+Facts (HARTFORD IS NOT LISTED AS A HUB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) The source you provded only listed the airports that UPS serves, the source I provided lists the hubs the airline has, and Hartford is not listed as a hub (the airline still serves Hartford but it isn't a cargo hub). 68.119.73.36 (talk) 02:47, 23 December 2013 (UTC)

Fault Current Limiters[edit]

Hello and Good Morning! I took your good advice and referred the article on fault Current Limiters https://en.wikipedia.org/en/Talk:Fault_current_limiter to WikiProject Physics for advice on whether there should be a new article FCL, which reference both this article, which should be re-titled Superconducting FCL, and a new article on the mainstream technology (rectifier or solid state FCLs);

or

can I suggest recommend and begin a re-write of the current article in a more balance manner. I am happy with whatever advice WikiProject Physics gives. Thanks for your help! 1capybara (talk) 09:30, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

Thank you very much, and, you're welcome! I do not think that I can be considered as a senior editor - my editcount! - but I took some pleasure and interest in reviewing that subject. I am not at all a specialist on the subject, I only collected what documents are available without searching in depth, e.g. I did not enquire about the companies. I expect that the article will go the way of a rewriting the way you are suggesting it. --Askedonty (talk) 16:43, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

Books & Bytes New Years Double Issue[edit]

Books & Bytes

Eurasian Eagle-Owl Maurice van Bruggen.JPG

Volume 1 Issue 3, December/January 2013

(Sign up for monthly delivery)

Happy New Year, and welcome to a special double issue of Books & Bytes. We've included a retrospective on the changes and progress TWL has seen over the last year, the results of the survey TWL participants completed in December, some of our plans for the future, a second interview with a Wiki Love Libraries coordinator, and more. Here's to 2014 being a year of expansion and innovation for TWL!

The Wikipedia Library completed the first 6 months of its Individual Engagement grant last week. Here's where we are and what we've done:

Increased access to sources: 1500 editors signed up for 3700 free accounts, individually worth over $500,000, with usage increases of 400-600%

Deep networking: Built relationships with Credo, HighBeam, Questia, JSTOR, Cochrane, LexisNexis, EBSCO, New York Times, and OCLC

New pilot projects: Started the Wikipedia Visiting Scholar project to empower university-affiliated Wikipedia researchers

Developed community: Created portal connecting 250 newsletter recipients, 30 library members, 3 volunteer coordinators, and 2 part-time contractors

Tech scoped: Spec'd out a reference tool for linking to full-text sources and established a basis for OAuth integration

Broad outreach: Wrote a feature article for Library Journal's The Digital Shift; presenting at the American Library Association annual meeting
...Read Books & Bytes!

two questions please :)[edit]

1. my AFC [[1]] (on my talk page, article for creation on "Critical Power") was rejected for reasons I disagree with, that it "reads like an advertisement" even though it mentions 5-10 different providers of this product including the free, open-source Linux product. How can this read like an advertisement? Who do I appeal this to, and is this worth appealing, or am I thinking wrong?

2. how do I edit the article on [[2]] "Fault Current Limiter" offline, a little each day, and saving it as I go, without publishing it until it is ready and "finished." I'm thinking the only way is to copy the current page in Word, edit and save it there, then paste it into the published article when its "finished." Is that the best way to do it a little each day?

3. Thanks for your advice :) 1capybara (talk) 11:21, 20 January 2014 (UTC)

got yr email but[edit]

After the initial "I think he meant" the rest was a hash of code, like an old-style gif coming across as characters. μηδείς (talk) 21:28, 26 August 2017 (UTC)

I'm sorry μηδείς, I should of course have given you the hint. It's the copy-paste of an html page ( an archived google search about hapax apophthegm, subject which was puzzling for me and remains so). You could paste it into a text file which you give a .html extension and open the file into a web browser using the File->Open menu. You may prefer not to as too much gibberish for you. As the send mail page is not tailored for including attachments I could not send a screenshot instead, or it would have been that old-style gif, with the same copy-paste save-file open-browser constraints anyway. --Askedonty (talk) 11:20, 27 August 2017 (UTC)

Your recent post on Mozart[edit]

I read and reread your post several times and just don't understand it. Are you using an auto translator? If so, it might be useful to mention on your userpage that you're not fluent in English. --Dweller (talk) Become old fashioned! 12:25, 8 August 2018 (UTC)

No, I think it's something else. I tend to get the same kinds of results in native mode. Thank you kindly. --Askedonty (talk) 12:42, 8 August 2018 (UTC)
I don't understand that reply either :-( . --Dweller (talk) Become old fashioned! 09:02, 21 August 2018 (UTC)
Oh well. It's written expression in general I sometimes have to recognize I have notable shortcomings in. Add a bad education, bar a lot of satisfying experience with etiquette. But it's true, I once developped an auto-translator. It certainly didn't get that much advanced that I would dare manoeuver it on the Rd at any rate. --Askedonty (talk) 20:58, 20 September 2018 (UTC)

Followup on PSYOP[edit]

Hey - I don't know if you saw my reply during our discussion about PSYOP, but it looks like the discussion was archived, before I ever heard back from you. (The discussion can still be seen here - Wikipedia:Reference desk/Archives/Humanities/2018 September 12) I'm curious what the "Army paragraph" and "Navy paragraph" are that you referred to. It's unclear to me where these "paragraphs" are from. Are you referring to paragraphs in a military manual? A news article? A Wikipedia article? Let me know! Thanks! --Jpcase (talk) 12:06, 20 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi Jpcase! I'm sorry, "paragraph" was the wrong expression. I had done just like yourself had - that is, skim through the article. I found several and more examples of PSYOP units called "Psychological Operations unit name" in some pair of articles linked to the former, I do not know which. Later I looked back again at the article and I was indeed surprised by the contrast between the two sentences ( that's "the first occurence of the term in the sub-section", not paragraph ). One step after only I read the sentences properly - for real, and I found logical there was given "noun" status to the one indirectly referring to the units named using the expression ( as elements is used meaning units ). --Askedonty (talk) 20:00, 20 September 2018 (UTC)

Distanciating/distantiating[edit]

Hi, Askedonty. I think you may have misinterpreted me. I had never heard of that word, at all. I googled it, and learned that it does exist, and can be spelled in two ways. That's why I thanked you. Cheers. -- Jack of Oz [pleasantries] 18:50, 20 September 2018 (UTC)

Jack of Oz, Sir you got me confused again. Indeed a Collins on-line dictionary is agreeing with the special spelling. Wiktionary did not. Now I'm uncertain whether I should strike my first correction and add a small and digressive explanation about the occurrence! --Askedonty (talk) 20:07, 20 September 2018 (UTC)
None of that is necessary, in my opinion. Wiktionary is not an infallible oracle. Google gives many instances of both spellings. You've been correct both times. Let sleeping dogs lie, I say. -- Jack of Oz [pleasantries] 21:20, 20 September 2018 (UTC)
Right. Now leaving the dog to savour his heavy turtles dreams. --Askedonty (talk) 08:06, 21 September 2018 (UTC)
