List of Solid State Drive Manufacturers edit

I think we can manage to maintain a list of companies that produce SSDs as long as we don't have to list each of their SKUs. I recommend we have some source for each entry to keep with the Wikipedia source standards. I would be happy to contribute with you. We would need to rename the article I would think.

Computing assessment banners edit

PNM - Honestly, I don't see a problem with it because what you added after I assessed the two WikiProject banners for AAA protocol it wasn't even there to begin with. While I do understand what you mean by the difference looking at the revision of my edit and yours to see what you've added to WikiProject Computer Security banner. Every WikiProject has their own way of doing things, on Wikipedia and over the last 3 weeks I've been caught up in some discussion about my edits which I do see now they are only minor changes that I can add to my edits to help the contributors coming back and explaining it again. Anything you need to someone to look at on WikiProject Computing or WikiProject Computer Security, I'll certainly look at, it would be appreciated.

DYK for C-SPAN Video Library edit

Question about C-SPAN Video Library edit

Hello again, Pnm! First, I want to say thank you for nominating C-SPAN Video Library for DYK, which was very cool to see. Now, reviewing the article and the Talk page today, I noticed that first you had rated it B-class, then downgraded it to C-class, with the edit summary observation that there seemed to be more to say. Now, having read absolutely everything I could find about it, both on the open Internet and on the Nexis newspaper database, I can vouch that there is almost nothing left to include (that could be considered encyclopedic) based on what has been published about it. So I am moved to ask: would you mind re-appraising the article, or perhaps give me an idea what should be added in order to raise its quality rating? I realize the ratings are somewhat arbitrary, though being somewhat familiar with the rating system, I believe this one is pretty strong. My response is partly informed by having another article that I worked on, WCSP-FM, promoted to GA status on another editor's nomination. Your thoughts? WWB Too (talk) 02:54, 17 January 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I thought the article was missing information about content licensing and the technology used to run the site. There's a section on content licensing in the main C-SPAN article but I thought it needed both expansion and a summary placed in this article. I'm on a semi-wikibreak this week but I'll take a closer look when I get back. --Pnm (talk) 19:10, 20 January 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Computer aided dispatch edit

Hi there, Can i just ask the reasoning behind moving computer aided dispatch to a hyphenated version. I can see nothing particular in wp:hyphen which supports the move, so i was hoping you might be able to give some more information, rather than just reverting the move?

"Computer aided" is a compound adverb adjective – it's #3 in WP:HYPHEN. I noticed you'd moved it from Computer-assisted dispatch to Computer aided dispatch based on usage in peer-reviewed journals, which makes sense; I just think the hyphen ought to be there, too. --Pnm (talk) 20:31, 25 January 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

If there was no consensus, Computers should be reinstated as a main topic classification, where it was at the start of discussion. (Computing is fine under Technology – it's a big topic.

Women of psychology project edit

Hi Pmn, I have just started a project called "women of psychology." The project page is This project's goal is to create and develop articles about women who have contributed significantly to the field of Psychology. At this time, there are relatively few articles about emminent women psychologists on Wikipedia. This project seeks to remedy this situation. I am currently seeking support from women's psychological organizations (AWP, APA Division 35, APA's International Office, others) for their help and support for this project. The first stage of this project will involve creating a list of notable women who have contributed to the field of psychology. As those accumulate, the next task with be to create articles with relevant, well-organized information about their contributions and their histories. I thought you might be interested in this project considering your work on "Women and Psychology." Any support or suggestions would be welcome.WebMaven2000 (talk) 16:22, 7 August 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Painting with a broad brush edit

Referring to your remarks at Talk:C standard library, I think there's a difference between personal attacks and simply having a different point of view. I don't think I've made any personal attacks but I certainly have been the target of them and I'm disappointed that no one has stepped up to point out that such attacks aren't appropriate and, now, by the implication that there's little difference between 1exec1's behavior and mine. This is painting with a broad brush that if two people are having trouble getting along, they must be equally at fault. That's just not always the case and it's not the case here. Msnicki (talk) 22:33, 8 November 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks for writing. I don't think I read so carefully as to identify this before, but you're right: I see that you didn't make personal attacks. Actually I can't find personal attacks targeted at you either (in this thread), though I might be missing them.
What I was responding to is what I perceived as a rude and dismissive tone toward each other, in posts you each made in the thread, and a perceived focus on what the other said and did instead of on what to call the article. That's what I meant when I wrote, "please lay off each other" and "please keep [the] page on topic." See your response to my initial comment, for example.
I didn't suggest you were equally at fault. --Pnm (talk) 23:12, 8 November 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Well, again, I don't think I have been rude or dismissive. Clearly, I have a different opinion, but I think I've been consistently respectful albeit firm in stating it. Take a look, e.g., at 1exec1's examples of what I've said that he doesn't like; there's nothing there to complain about. It's certainly not like being called out for lying, hypocrisy, disruptive editing (he doesn't understand the term) and ignorance. And note that his response that it's not a personal attack to call me an ignorant lying hypocrite because he insists that's true. There is a line; I don't think I've ever crossed it; I think he has, time and again and he's completely unrepentant. As for my response to your remark, which I assume is a reference to my comment that "1exec1 would have a better chance selling his proposal if he took it one article at a time and actually listened and responded to objections", I stand by that as constructive: He would have a better chance selling his proposal if he went at it one article at a time and actually tried to incorporate objections as opposed to simply claiming that they've been answered and should go away. Consensus isn't about winning an argument; it's about incorporating different points of view in search of something we can agree on (even if to say, it wasn't my choice, but it's clear that was the consensus.) Msnicki (talk) 00:36, 9 November 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes. In that response to me, you implied he wasn't listening to you, which I think was rude. Then you called his arguments "silly," which I think was rude and dismissive, and called his proposal "dead," which is also dismissive. You wrote "1exec1 would have a better chance selling his proposal if he [...] actually listened and responded to objections," which patronized him and dismissed the points he had made. Earlier in the thread you presented "you don't have a consensus" as an argument against the move proposal, which is specious and thus seems dismissive, and wrote "you're not helping yourself," again patronizing and dismissive. To me it seems the line you didn't cross is the one between rudeness and a personal attack. I'm glad you're sensitive about and careful not to make personal attacks, though it'll be easier to collaborate with you if you can focus on the subject of discussion instead of the other person's behavior, and act respectfully toward other people even when they don't treat you the same way. It certainly is challenging sometimes. --Pnm (talk) 01:40, 9 November 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Can we try to be fair about context, please? I didn't call all his arguments silly, I said he was "making silly claims that concerns about notability or WP:OR aren't valid objections." He does make that claim that concerns about notability and OR are not valid objections and that is a silly claim on WP; notability and OR always matter here, even if you have to agree to disagree whether the guidelines are satisfied in a given instance. And what's specious about pointing out the lack of consensus as reason not to do the move? That's not rude at all; that's just how we work. (And were you rude to dismiss my view as specious?) When he questioned what I meant, I answered respectfully, conceding his right to a different opinion. While my comment about listening to and responding to comments might have been better expressed as pointing out the need to incorporate objections, not just argue they're wrong, it is only half the sentence; the other half explains what I mean, that he "has been throwing out accusations of lying and hypocrisy, questioning others' good faith". My remark that he wasn't helping himself is a response to his false claim that I'd engaged in disruptive editing and an implication that I hadn't offered any arguments at all. My response was reserved, not rude. Now, I admit I'm not a perfect person, but to tediously take me to task for insufficiently turning the other cheek after being called a lying hypocrite – and to do it with a word here and a word there out of context – seems harsh in my book. How well do you behave when people call you names? I think I was pretty restrained and surprisingly respectful, e.g., here, acknowledging and respecting that his opinion was different and suggesting we drop the stick. What are your standards here? I'm wondering who among us could pass. With your "specious" remark and your own tendency to be patronizing ("Seriously, both of you.") even without provocation, it doesn't sound like you could do it.
I think I did stay focused and I think you're grasping at straws to justify having jumped to a false assumption, that if 1exec1 was complaining about me that loudly, I must have done something to deserve it. I didn't deserve what I got from him and I didn't deserve what I got from you, either. Msnicki (talk) 02:40, 9 November 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I just saw your edit, redacting your "seriously" remark. Thank you.

Thanks for your help with List of The Nerdist Podcast episodes edit

I appreciate your assistance. I'm not sure we agree that the split should have been made, but now that I've acted boldly, I'm glad you have contributed, adding the splitting templates to talk, and correcting the infobox. As I have said elsewhere, I've never done a page creation I felt might one day see AfD. I can see why others may not agree to the inherent notability of the list page, but I think that even you felt such a splitting was preferential to the over-weighting of the material on the main page. As I said to another editor on talk, this splitting may have the effect of taking some of the ip mischief pressure off the main page and applying it to a slightly less visible space. I'm glad to watch and shepherd the list. I think that in time it might be a much better work and given the extended success of the podcast, might actually become FL-class stuff. Thanks again for your contributions and stewardship. BusterD (talk) 03:01, 21 November 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sure thing. I think the split is a good compromise. Given that we were starting to discuss it, I don't see it as a content fork, and certainly a reasonable WP:BOLD. So far I'm unconvinced about the list's notability, and was posting about it on the talk page when you wrote me. FL quality is quite a goal! It'll need more content attributed to secondary sources to avoid original research problems. I was glad to collaborate on this. --Pnm (talk) 03:27, 21 November 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Amelioration pattern edit

Hi, I deprodded Amelioration pattern and added a reference I found in the ACM DL. I only quickly skimmed through it though, so I wouldn't mind if still want to send this to AfD after having taken a look at it. —Ruud 21:24, 4 December 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

OK, thanks. I don't have access to the full text. Would you be willing to share the relevant pages? – Pnm (talk) 21:29, 4 December 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The relevant paragraph:

An anti-pattern has two possible forms: it either ‘provides knowledge on how to go from a problem to a bad solution’ or shows ‘how to go from a bad solution to a good solution’ [Cockburn et al. 2004]. The former will be referred to as a simple anti-pattern and the latter is commonly called an amelioration anti-pattern. If described properly, an anti-pattern also tells the designer why the bad solution looks attractive, why it turns out to be bad, and what positive patterns are applicable in its stead. Anti-patterns therefore concentrate on presenting negative solutions [Brown et al. 1998, McCormick 2004A]. Simple anti-patterns are thus not very useful to the designer, behaving as a mere example of what can go wrong; the amelioration pattern is constructive and useful to the designer since it shows how the bad solution can be refactored.

Ruud 21:48, 4 December 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

xxxterm edit

Why did You add place {{connected contributor}} to xxxterm's talk page? I'm not connected with xxxterm in no way. The WP:SELFCITE clearly permits using own reference without giving undue weight, which is clearly not an issue in case of 1:16 ratio. — Dmitrij D. Czarkoff (talk) 23:20, 18 December 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

While the template message isn't perfect, citing oneself is a conflict of interest. You aren't giving your own source undue weight, but you're using it in an argument for notability – and you wrote it after it failed at Afd. In an open-source project the line between connected and unconnected is blurry, since anyone can volunteer to help with outreach. If the language of the template really bothers you, I'll write a new template which makes it clearer that you're connected with a major source used by the article. – Pnm (talk) 23:36, 18 December 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Examining the edit history can reveal that the weight of this reference wasn't really undue.

Openess edit

Hi, I think a common term used for these various "Openness" projects is Open movements or "Open" movements, e.g. [1][2][3][4][5]. I'd suggest that as the title of the WikiProject as it is all encompassing while "Open access" is not. What was your reason for choosing "Open methodologies"? (Wikipedia:Categories_for_discussion/Log/2012_January_7#Category:Libre). Is that term used as an umbrella? I agree Libre was less than ideal.

I think there should be a section in Openness on these movements, as plenty of sources associate them so it wouldn't be original research.[6] For example, see Blue Obelisk.[7]

This was daft: Wikipedia:Templates_for_discussion/Log/2012_January_6#Template:Openness. Clearly "openness" and "IP activism" are not one and the same. Some of user:Bluerasberry/template:openness should be used for Template:Open navbox. Fences&Windows 21:30, 26 January 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you — Preceding unsigned comment added by Funckyfizz (talkcontribs) 00:40, 6 February 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

In this edit you identified yourself as the author of the article you linked, which means you have a conflict of interest. Please know that Wikipedia is not here to promote your article.
That said, we need to determine whether that article meets Wikipedia's guidelines for reliable sources. It appears to me that it does not – there's no evidence that it has a reputation for fact-checking and accuracy. If it were a reliable source, it could be used as a reference to cite some information in the article. After reading the guideline if you disagree, the reliable sources noticeboard is a good place to have a centralized discussion about that.
If it's not an RS, we can consider it as an external link. However, I think it meets #1 at WP:ELNO, sites normally to be avoided, because while you provide some interesting analysis, I don't consider it a unique resource beyond what any of these articles would contain if they became featured articles.

Greetings from WikiProject Open Access edit

Dear Pnm,

SEM of bacteriophages.

it is now one year since WikiProject Open Access was started by User:Bluerasberry on January 10, 2012. Since then, the project has advanced modestly, but we have not interacted much. For the coming year, we certainly want to improve on that.

We also plan to overhaul the project pages to make them more conducive to collaboration, and we are pondering the idea of expanding the concept of a WikiProject Open Access to projects other than the English Wikipedia, e.g. to other languages or to Wikimedia Commons. You are warmly invited to add your voice to all that. We would also appreciate if you would share some of your OA-related activities by way of our news ticker or via the monthly Open Access report that is part of the GLAM newsletter (to which you can subscribe here), or as you see fit otherwise.

As a visual token of the anniversary, I am adding today's Open Access File of the Day. Feel free to nominate files yourself. As of today, commons:Category:Open access (publishing) contains more than 15,000 files, of which about 2/3 are video and sound files uploaded by the Open Access Media Importer.

Thanks for being part of the project, and looking forward to more interaction. With a smile, -- Daniel Mietchen - WiR/OS (talk) 23:39, 10 January 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Speedy deletion nomination of Category:Free system administration tools edit


A tag has been placed on Category:Free system administration tools requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section C1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the category has been empty for seven days or more and is not a disambiguation category, a category redirect, a featured topics category, under discussion at Categories for discussion, or a project category that by its nature may become empty on occasion.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to 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 deleted 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.
