Prisoner's dilemmaEdit

Hi,

I have moved the "arm's race" counter-evidence as you suggested, and whilst I was looking through the page I decided it needed several more additions and some cleanup which I have also tried to start. Although almost everything that was originally there seemed fairly good, I dont' think that the following phrase fits well into an encyclopedia:

"If PD is played only once, it appears that there is no hope for mankind. However, as we shall later see, if PD is played more than once then things start looking better."

This is normative editorializing, and unsupported. It is also basically a hyperbolic repetition of the previous paragraph, so I've removed it. To be honest, I'm surprised that the article was able to become a Wikipedia:Featured Article including this sentence. Am I wrong?

Any further thoughts on the the prisoner's dilemma page would be considered as cooperating. As an incentive for futher contributions, I have a User:Bank of Wikipedia coin offer on my user page.

I agree, but unfortunately, I am not the right person to ask (my knowledge of game theory is actually quite shallow). Hopefully these things will sort out after the new version of mediawiki is released. Samohyl Jan 16:26, 5 Jun 2005

Ok,
I should probably add my comment onto the prisoner's dilemma talk page, but its so clear that the line should be removed that I'll leave it for now.

Total reorganization of the list of lists of mathematical topicsEdit

I've moved all the material from you revised list to the real thing. Could you express yourself at Wikipedia:Featured_list_candidates#List_of_lists_of_mathematical_topics as to whether or to what extent this addresses your concerns, and whether you would therefore change your vote.

Removal of Python vs. XEdit

I think it's a good thing you did to remove the various comparisons of Python features shared or not shared by various other languages. In the changelog you say to look at the "feature comparison page" (or something like that). Is there such a WP page? If so, I think we should make a prominent link to that for readers interested in that sort of thing. Lulu of the Lotus-Eaters 20:39, 2005 August 31 (UTC)

No, there isn't a single page, I meant that for instance comparison of features of object-oriented languages should be on object-oriented language, and so on. Samohyl Jan 20:43, 31 August 2005 (UTC)[]

list of computational geometryEdit

You will be surprized when I wil have time to list everything relevant there. Overlap doesn't matter here. Lists are search tools. Nearly all wikipedia articles are listed in several categories. The same is reasonable to be with lists. Also, something may be removed from graphics. Also, computer graphics is neglected as well, judging from the level of activity in the topics. mikka (t) 16:25, 17 October 2005 (UTC)[]

Triangular normsEdit

You created a page on triangular norms. However, there is already a page on T-norms, which seems to be on the same subject. As you appear to know a bit about them, could I please ask you to merge both articles? Cheers, Jitse Niesen (talk) 02:34, 24 April 2006 (UTC)[]

Oh, thanks. I apparently overlooked it (I was wondering why such important concept doesn't have an article yet). I'll fix that after I come back from work. Samohyl Jan 05:48, 24 April 2006 (UTC)[]

SolidarityEdit

There's been talk about the coordination and co-operation of the anti-spoiler side. That may be an exaggeration, but it's painfully clear that we can shout into the woods all we want without getting anywhere without laid-out goals and viable alternatives to the present spoiler policy, not just criticisms of it, however justified they may be. I'm open to suggestions, and feel free to reply to any that other people make on my talk page.

In the meantime, here's a symbol. Please put it on your user page or keep it on your talk page; if we get it on enough pages, it might just count for something. Please remove it if you don't want to show it. And if you've got a better picture, be my guest and use it. --Kizor 16:05, 13 June 2007 (UTC)[]

Restoring off-topic and unproductive commentsEdit

Don't. It's a thoroughly counter-productive thing to do, it's bad for wikipedia and it gives people the impression that all comment, even of the most unproductive type, is sacrosanct. --TS 06:55, 22 February 2008 (UTC)[]


Accusations of trollingEdit

Hello! You just accused me of trolling (and thus acting in bad faith). I consider that a very serious thing to say. I've been doing my best to cooperate and find consensus, so I think you're being unfair too. Would you care to review my reply to you on the relevant page, and withdraw/strike through your accusation if you find that I have in fact been acting in good faith?

Thank you for your time --Kim Bruning (talk) 17:04, 29 April 2008 (UTC)[]

Around 2005 , I told people that one day I'd be accused of trolling for defending the consensus system. At the time they laughed, of course.
Well, I guess not today. This is only the second time anyone ever has accused me of trolling. Are you so sure that I'm actually trolling? And on what grounds?
--Kim Bruning (talk) 17:36, 29 April 2008 (UTC)[]
Note, I tried sending you e-mail with more details, but your wikipedia e-mail address is not set. --Kim Bruning (talk) 17:37, 29 April 2008 (UTC)[]
