Hi,

I am really busy so it can be months before I get back on.

You are welcome to email me unfortunately I have probably got wikipedia mail going to my newsletters mail where I have about 25,000 unreads.

So it is probably best to rant/change things and tell me in my talk session.

Sorry for being difficult to contact.

Thanks

Welcome!Edit

Welcome!

Hello, RonaldDuncan, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are some pages that you might find helpful:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date.

Hello, RonaldDuncan!

I noticed that your talk page was a red link while reviewing this article. So I thought I'd say hi, and ask a question while I'm at it.

I think "modal score" and "mode" are synonymous. I looked at several references on the internet, and the authors who speak of "modal score" are calling the statistic they're studying a "score". For instance, in education the teachers typically speak of "scores" on tests. The "modal score" is the score that occurs most often. But if we call the scores "statistics", then the "mode" is the "statistic that occurs most often", which is the same thing as the "modal score".

Oh – the correct name for the article would be "Modal score", not "Modal Score". Please see WP:NAME.

I'd like to make "modal score" a redirect to the page mode, and add a sentence to that article explaining "modal score", if that's OK with you. Have a great day! DavidCBryant 23:46, 5 March 2007 (UTC)

Thanks modal score and mode are synonymous and I agree with the edit and the redirect. I wrote the modal score article because I came across a few references to modal score and was asked to put in a response on modal scores in a tender and thought it was worth explaining in an article. It also makes it easier for people to find modal score. However the redirect is a better solution. RonaldDuncan 16:07, 20 August 2007 (UTC)

@UK PLCEdit

A {{prod}} template has been added to the article @UK PLC, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but the article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice explains why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may contest the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. ≈≈Carolfrog≈≈♦тос♦ 06:17, 8 July 2007 (UTC)

  • Hi RonaldDuncan, Thank you for your message and questions on my talk page. My apologies for the delay in responding caused by some real life deadlines. My simple advice to you on this page is that you initially start to re-write the article up in a sandbox that you have created for your self as a sub-page details on how to do that can be found here. Once you have started you can let me know and I can find and copy and paste the original material to your sandbox. Then when you have the article at a verifibable stage you re-start the page and copy/paste your text over to it. It will remain safe in your sandbox until you do that. For advice on what constitutes notability please click on this link. Best wishes --VS talk 22:11, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Jordans Ltd.Edit

A tag has been placed on Jordans Ltd. requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must include on the external site the statement "I, (name), am the author of this article, (article name), and I release its content under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2 and later." You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Shouryya RayEdit

Hi RonaldDuncan; I don’t think Shouryya Ray is notable and would like to propose the page for deletion. (I have been able to find very little information about the work he’s done in this year’s Jugend forscht.) Looking at the edit history, you seem to have made the most constructive edits to the article. Would you care to engage me on the talk page of Shouryya Ray? Best, Thore. Thore Husfeldt (talk) 20:56, 27 May 2012 (UTC)

you now need to merge the material you found. The current version is the article that was deleted. DGG ( talk ) 23:28, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Ruth Anderson (accountant), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page FTSE (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

New beta editor sucksEdit

Thx, I have now updated the article with my changes and was in the midst of reverting it when you reverted. RonaldDuncan (talk) 21:13, 20 July 2013 (UTC)

How to I get out of new beta editorEdit

This help request has been answered. If you need more help, you can ask another question on your talk page, contact the responding user(s) directly on their user talk page, or consider visiting the Teahouse.

It came up when I logged into the Cricket in Scotland page, and seemed both very buggy and then when saved, saved something completely different to what appeared on the screen.

Found the VE mess page along with instructions on how to get out of it. Looks like there are a large no of reverts [1] about 500 in the last hour, so one of many. RonaldDuncan (talk) 22:40, 20 July 2013 (UTC)
Looks like bugzilla is also broke since I have not got the email to register so that I can provide a bug report, since my bug edit had a strange char in it.RonaldDuncan (talk) 22:40, 20 July 2013 (UTC)
You should have a "edit source" option next to "edit" that will circumvent the VisualEdtitor and give you the old editing window. I don't think you can deactivate VE entirely; you can, however, simply not use it in this way. Huon (talk) 23:21, 20 July 2013 (UTC)

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. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail.

Information on COI editingEdit

  Hello, RonaldDuncan. We welcome your contributions, but if you have an external relationship with the people, places, or things you have written about in the article Ronald Duncan (alpine skier), you may have a conflict of interest (COI). Editors with a COI may be unduly influenced by their connection to the topic, and it is important when editing Wikipedia articles that such connections be completely transparent. See the conflict of interest guideline and FAQ for organizations for more information. In particular, we ask that you please:

  • avoid editing or creating articles related to you and your family, friends, school, company, club, or organization, as well as any competing companies' projects or products;
  • instead, you are encouraged to propose changes on the Talk pages of affected article(s) (see the {{request edit}} template);
  • when discussing affected articles, disclose your COI (see WP:DISCLOSE);
  • avoid linking to the Wikipedia article or to the website of your organization in other articles (see WP:SPAM);
  • exercise great caution so that you do not violate Wikipedia's content policies.

In addition, you must disclose your employer, client, and affiliation with respect to any contribution for which you receive, or expect to receive, compensation (see WP:PAID).

Please take a few moments to read and review Wikipedia's policies regarding conflicts of interest, especially those pertaining to neutral point of view, sourcing and autobiographies. Thank you. Safehaven86 (talk) 15:53, 3 October 2016 (UTC)

Privacy by designEdit

I see you will propose a rewrite on the topic, which I both welcome and have suggested myself (as the attempt to self-define the term through a minor reformulation of Cameron's suggested "7 laws of identity" clearly do not provide a useful definition). I think we would all benefit from this.

This discussion is old going all the way back to e.g. the 2003 EU Workshop on Privacy Enhancing Technologies where the scientific community across the Atlantic reacted strongly in opposition to commercial attempts to undermine terminology leading to the use of "Privacy friendly" for non-complete technologies without invalidating solutions actually ensuring citizen control.

It is vital to not allow erosion of rights through fluffy definitions, or using terms covering both good and bad at the same time allowing for invasive structures claiming to be good (as e.g. Facebook have been doing with "Privacy by Design" while retaining corporate control over data or claims of "Data Anonymization" or "Differential Privacy").

In this, it is important to distinguish clearly between the many efforts in the design process (e.g. "privacy engineering") and a categorization of outcome.

There is no assurance what-so-ever that a certain process will lead to a solution that ensures Privacy by Design just as technological or other changes may erode the security of what was previous fairly considered "Privacy by Design". Therefore the label of "Privacy by Design" on a particular solution has to be dynamic and subject to - in principle - continuous evaluation.

In this I recommend the EU approach of NOT trying to define or require "Privacy by Design" per see beyond "data minimization" according to state-of-the-art.

The legal definition in EU is essentially whether or nor data is subject to legal restrictions, i.e. "Identified or identifiable" maintaining a close linkage to scientific reality as security and thereby control is a fluid question.

We could benefit from a categorization covering some of the greyzone issues (e.g. related to accountability as one of the main parameters in a multi-dimensional problem), but I presently do not see a legitimate source of such a scale.

In short, I would be part of the large professional scientific community that would reject strongly to allowing a fluffy definition to provide data controllers (whether government or private) a "free out of jail card" for back-doors or reducing the term to non-consequential marketing use.Sjewiki22 (talk) 12:00, 3 June 2018 (UTC)

Thanks I will have a go and publish a draft in my sandbox RonaldDuncan (talk) 13:44, 5 June 2018 (UTC)

Would you please undo and revert the article to the state prior to your editions July 16th. The agreement was to make a draft article in the Sandbox, not to just reimplement the flaws and ignore the basics. The present version do not begin to cover Privacy by Design - it is merely data abusers marketing perspective trying to circumvent regulation and security for profit through terminology obfuscation Sjewiki22 (talk) 09:25, 19 July 2018 (UTC)

I think we should debate this on the talk page. I have put in some comments. I could not find anything to support your view point, please provide some evidence regards RonaldDuncan (talk) 22:14, 19 July 2018 (UTC)

@Diannaa: thanks for pointing out my not rewriting the bio from the EU summary which give me 80% of the content. Another editor has kindly cut the section out to remove the copyright violation, and your have removed the CSD template. I am looking at becoming a New Page Reviewer and one of my areas of inexperience is AFD and CSD. Historically, I have tried to improve articles that I find rather than delete or template with what is wrong and leave. As an experienced editor I would like your thoughts on the balance.

Speedy deletion nomination of Pattern EnergyEdit

 

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Pattern Energy requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a company, corporation or organization that does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

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".

Ronald, the requirements for articles about businesses have been rewritten recently. You need to show that the company passes the threshold of WP:NCORP. Two references to their own website and one to a trade directory do not even start to do that. Hope that helps, Cabayi (talk) 12:47, 29 November 2018 (UTC)

  • @Cabayi: It is Wikipedia:LISTED Editors coming across an article on such a company without such references are encouraged to search (or request that others search) prior to nominating for deletion, given the very high (but not certain) likelihood that a publicly traded company is actually notable according to the primary criterion. I was going to put in some more info on the company and its projects next time I had a chance, can you send me the last version so I can build on it when I get back from holiday, since there are a number of references to the company and its projects.

I can't, I'm not an admin. Cabayi (talk) 16:26, 5 December 2018 (UTC)
I'm concerned that you're taking your lead from the company's website. It's like you want to regurgitate their corporate message. I don't believe so, but I should ask - you don't have a conflict of interest do you?
In the lede you make a point of mentioning their project in Chile, yet in the Chile section we find they've sold it off already.

I suggested the look at their portfolio so that you can look for references to their projects. Most of them have independent references from either local News or trade press.
E.g. https://patternenergy.com/learn/portfolio/santa-isabel-wind https://www.google.com/search?q=Santa+Isabel+Wind and also look at the news for info how the Hurricane affected things.
It is easy to delete harder work to create some thing that is referenced. Up to you. It looks like you have switched to deleting things rather than creating.
