Heyya, Astro. I ran across Mass transfer, and noted that the astronomical usage wasn't covered there. However, I couldn't think how to phrase it properly for the purposes of the article. Could you check out talk:Mass transfer and make suggestions, improvements, or wholesale changes? -- April


Thanks!

I think the sep11.wikipedia.org is just about right. There need to be clean redirects from the wikipedia.org urls for it to be good, but yes, the In Memoriam page isn't appropriate content permanently. --The Cunctator




Hi. I'm glad to see I wasn't the only one who objected to deleting posts and replacing them with a "user has plagiarized" message. I'm kind of new, so I'm not quite sure how things are done. I do know that a very large percentage of the stuff in an encyclopedia is not copyrightable (factual), and Jazz77's articles were no exception. I certainly don't have any objections to band members writing about their band. They should maybe keep the facts and their experiences/observations separate, but isn't there a place for first-hand articles, opinions, essays, that sort of thing? -- Stephen

I know - but the redirect for Military technology and equipment was
already to Weapon, so I was trying to retain consistency. Weapon
has a list that includes things that aren't strictly speaking weapons,
anyway. - Khendon 13:49 Sep 26, 2002 (UTC)

Somebody mentioned that you are fluent in Spanish. If this is true, I wonder if you might be interested in being the English Wikipedia Ambassador to Encyclopedia Libre? They seem to want to upgrade to Phase III and to get interlanguage links working but we do need a point of contact with that project. I would do this myself but my Spanish skills are not good enough to reasonably prevent yet another misunderstanding with that project. --mav




This is what my source (http://www.pantheon.org) says on the kachina article:


But in the mythic sense and ritual significance they are better conceived as spirits of the dead or departed. After the end of a good life, they go to the West, where the sun sets, and become kachinas, but there is no clear identity with the deceased and a specific kachina.


It's a reliable source, but I wouldn't trust it to be one-hundred percent accurate.




Happy Birthday! ( Did I inspire that Oct 1 entry??) User:Arno

An, thank you for commenting about my contributions and reading them. I have to admit that I didnt know how to write some of my first articles. But also , here is the problem: At first, I took this as a magazine and so, I wrote my articles like a magazine writer probably would. Take Carlos Monzon's page, for example, which you mentioned to Zoe. I thought I was being partial by publishing he was a great boxer, which, in fact, 90 percent of boxing fans would say he was because he had an excellent record, but also pointing out the fact that he had a history of violence, which is a fact because he was even accused and jailed for the murder of his wife.


But Ive realized my mistake and I know what you meant by saying that I was expressing an opinion with adjectives like great and excellent. As a matter of fact, in my latest entries, Im trying to stay clear of those.


Out of the 3 people who have critizized me, youre the one I like the most, because you did it in a constructive way.


The fact you have told me how to do my articles so that I can do a better job in the future, gives me a lot of respect towards you.


AntonioMartin



Dear An:

Hey! Thank you for praising my job about the Ernie Gonzalez page! I had no idea anyone had looked at it until I checked it today, (one month after you posted your messegae in it) and so I was glad to find out you liked my job there.


Dont you feel sometimes like an educator when you're working these pages? I do..I think if anyone can be benefitted from what I write and research about daily, (which is, mainly about boxing, air transportation and entertainment, cause I am not doctor material, LOL! ), well if anyon can be beneffited out of what I have to give, Im very, very happy. Dont you feel that way too?


Well, once again, thanks! Hope to hear from you again soon!!


Sincerely yours,

Dear An:

Hi! How are you? I have a problem with that photo I uploaded, apart that I need to put courtesy of Phillipe Bleus near it cause he requested me to, I meant to upload it into the Aeroflot page, but I have no idea how to do that. On the other hand, I was told I need some equipment to make it in JPeg. The fact it is on a page by itself is an accident, since I meant to send it to the Aeroflot article and I dont know what happened. But anyways, Ill have to see either if anyone here knows how to do that or if I can find out by myself.


Anyways it was as always, great to hear from you. Id say Pleasing but I like using happier words than that, LOL. So it was great to hear from you again! Im glad to be working in a website where people like you and me put our stone to make this a great world thru educating.


Thanks for everything, and God Bless!! Hope to hear from you soon!!

An: Please take a look at my response to Roadrunner's regarding typical solids as degenerate matter. Initially I shared your gut feeling, but a couple of minutes thought persuaded me that the explanation that I have added to the talk page is a worthwhile explanation of a legitimate misunderstanding and therefore potentially worth transfering to the main page. Maybe in the long run we need a mutually cross linked pair of articles Bose-Einstein condensate (already exists) and Degenerate Fermi gas. Alan Peakall 12:45 Nov 7, 2002 (UTC)

Hi Astro. I hope you don't mind but I have removed your redirect from the 'Republic of Japan' page and proposed the page for deletion. I know we don't normally delete redirect but in this case the name of the page is so misleading in claiming Japan is a republic that it may confuse students using Wiki into thinking Japan is a republic. (I know if they read the Japan page they would know it is a constitutional monarchy, but as all ex-students know, sometimes pages aren't read through fully. I'd hate some kid to lose marks because some vandal had originally created a site with a misleading name. Is that OK with you? JTD 20:33 Feb 20, 2003 (UTC)


excellent. BTW how do you delete pages or is that something that only the 'higher powers' can do? <G.> JTD 21:25 Feb 20, 2003 (UTC)


I'm sorry to see that you are leaving us AN - but I understand. My Wikipedia habit is difficlut to control too - hopefully it isn't consuming too much of my time. You will be missed. --mav


Dear An: Glad to see you back! Yeah ive been doing a little bit in the Espanol wikipedia. I love Espanol and Ingles the same, but I write here more cause of the demographics, of course.

Dear Astrojet: Hi! Thanks for your message. As for Astrojet, I couldnt resist myself: Dont worry, the Astrojet were very famous airplanes used by American Airlines during the 1960s and 1970s, to counteract Eastern Airlines' Whisperliners. The Astrojet was so famous and fad, that some American airplanes were repainted as Astrojets recently.

About Dr. Wilfredo Santa. I dont claim to know every Puerto Rican who is famous, and who can? Angelo Cruz was super famous for the shot he hit in a 1983 BSN game that gave his team the championship, but I doubt anyone in the new generations there know him at all. Anyways, ironically, me being originally from the island, I never heard anything from this Dr. Santa. I do know a Dr Iris LA Santa, my mother's personal doctor back in the day, but I dont think she's worthy of an article...lol

So, well if he was famous then the article could be legit, kept and all the other whatevers. Unfortunately, I dont know much about this person. I receive El Vocero daily, and Ive never even read news about him there. On the other hands, from what I read here, he's written books, so time will tell, maybe soon he will be worthy of an article. I guess when I call my family back there Ill ask them if hes on tv or something.

Thanks for your message, and God bless you!

Sincerely yours, your friend, Antonio High Flier Martin

Dictators, elections and revolutionEdit

Hi Ed. about Pinochet again. The article insist that he was dictator of Chile. Ok...i went to Fidel Castro and found "ruler". Changed to dictator, for consistency, but was reverted by a user claiming he was "elected"... what do you think of it? If "election" is the rule, Pinochet was elected for the 1981-1989 term by the mayority of voters that approved the constitution in which the transitory articles gave him that term.

There's been a long-running controversy (I mean, in the real world outside of Wikipedia) about whether any people have ever "voted for" Communism or any other form of dictatorship. Advocates of democracy and admirers of the US version of it, insists that no one ever would vote to give up their rights to a dictator. Advocates of socialism, opponents of democracy and enemies of the US provide what they claim are counterexamples: Castro, Hitler, Allende, Aristide.

I don't know enough history to evaluate these claims, but my dialogue with other Wikipedians has stimulated me to start doing some research. It looks like, at best, some of these leaders DID win an election somehow, but on false pretenses. They said one thing and did another. Which is why people generally wanted to overthrow them, as soon as they found out.

Opponents of democracy use the tricky argument that to overthrow "a democratically elected leader" is anti-democratic and hypocritical. Supporters of democracy should shut up and leave Haiti and Chile alone. But they forget one thing: "governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government" (US Declaration of Independence). --Uncle Ed 14:00, 29 Mar 2004 (UTC)

PinochetEdit

In case you're around, you should know 172 is scheming like crazy on the Augusto Pinochet page. He's putting notes on all his buddies' pages trying to pull them into the fray and smearing those who oppose him. It's a mess, and we need all the voices of sanity we can get. VV 12:15, 20 May 2004 (UTC)

Thanks for the note on my Talk page pointing out that issue with the new text. (My rewrite was intended to just make it more concise.) Perhaps you'd like to make proposed edits to the sandbox, which is somewhat more stable, if you want to avoid getting reverted by 172. Anyway, the page was unprotected by Ed Poor, not me; I don't know why he did it, since I didn't talk to him about it, but since he did it's an opportunity to get back to work. VV 21:05, 21 May 2004 (UTC)

Actually, it didn't get protected in "the wrong version". 172 reverted it after it was protected. He may not have done it deliberately, as it was before Raul put up the protection notice. Still, weeks of haggling and 172 won't budge at all. VV 01:46, 22 May 2004 (UTC)

The Humungous Image Tagging ProjectEdit

Hi. You've helped with the Wikipedia:WikiProject Wiki Syntax, so I thought it worth alerting you to the latest and greatest of Wikipedia fixing project, User:Yann/Untagged Images, which is seeking to put copyright tags on all of the untagged images. There are probably, oh, thirty thousand or so to do (he said, reaching into the air for a large figure). But hey: they're images ... you'll get to see lots of random pretty pictures.

Article LicensingEdit

Hi, I've started a drive to get users to multi-license all of their contributions that they've made to either (1) all U.S. state, county, and city articles or (2) all articles, using the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike (CC-by-sa) v1.0 and v2.0 Licenses or into the public domain if they prefer. The CC-by-sa license is a true free documentation license that is similar to Wikipedia's license, the GFDL, but it allows other projects, such as WikiTravel, to use our articles. Since you are among the top 1000 Wikipedians by edits, I was wondering if you would be willing to multi-license all of your contributions or at minimum those on the geographic articles. Over 90% of people asked have agreed. For More Information:

To allow us to track those users who muli-license their contributions, many users copy and paste the "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" template into their user page, but there are other options at Template messages/User namespace. The following examples could also copied and pasted into your user page:

Option 1
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions, with the exception of my user pages, as described below:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

OR

Option 2
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions to any [[U.S. state]], county, or city article as described below:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

Or if you wanted to place your work into the public domain, you could replace "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" with "{{MultiLicensePD}}". If you only prefer using the GFDL, I would like to know that too. Please let me know what you think at my talk page. It's important to know either way so no one keeps asking. -- Ram-Man (comment| talk)

Hi AstroNomer,

I just stumbled upon your talk page while checking through some old edits, and I felt compelled to partially undo this edit by Cydebot] to fix a cross-namespace redirect. The edit also changed "votes for deletion" to "articles for deletion", and that is historically inaccurate because the talk page message with the offending cross-namespace redirect was written in August 2002, and VFD wasn't renamed until 2005.

ArbCom elections are now open!Edit

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment.
