Buzz AldrinEdit

Hi there

I saw your comments on Aldrin's page and have done my best to answer some of your queries - page refs etc. Re your query about the "too big an ego" quote from Hansen - I read through Chap 25 again which covers the 'first out' issue in great detail, and can't find that exact quote. The nearest thing is that Armstrong "had no ego" which is actually a quote from Chris Kraft in an interview with James Hansen. Not sure where to take that from here, but no doubt somebody else will chip in. I'll add a ref tag to the quote. UPDATE: just realised there's already a ref there, so a ref tag wouldn't make sense.

Cortot & MannesEdit

Hm, we probably know each other by our non-Wikipedia names (although I used to love shlishkes, before I cared about my weight). I attended Mannes 1975-79, and have taught in the Extension Division since 1982. I was deriving that list of faculty from people I knew who were teaching when I attended, and from going through old Mannes catalogs. I don't have access to them at the moment, but indeed, Cortot is listed on the faculty (admitedly in a "Master class" situation) around 1922. A lot of refugees taught there in the war years (I believe Szell is among them). I'll add more as time permits. kosboot (talk) 23:54, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

Hehe, yes we know each other although I've forgotten what you look like. My pic is on my blog: - go to the "about" page (soon to change). Getting that PhD at CUNY was a real killer. Even at the time I'm convinced they just want the money - seems like few other institutions treat the students with such disregard. I corrected the citation in the Shlishkes article -- but it was funny to see "Kiryas, Joel" as a name. :) So "Braham" is a Jewish name? -- kosboot (talk) 14:34, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

The "whole perspective thing" is where it is because the main article on Leonardo is extremely long. There is no room in it to discuss perspective in detail. Leonardo was first and foremost a painter, so his painting is dealt with in that article in about as much detail as space will allow, which means trying to cover briefly as many as possible of his 15 most significant works. Perspective is just one of the scientific studies that he applied to painting. Also anatomy, botany, geology etc. Let me put it in a different way- if Leonardo was Piero della Francesca, then a section headed Perspective would probably feature in a biography, regardless of how many pages it took up. But while his study and application of it is significant, Leonardo was not the pioneer of linear perspective. So it jjust ttakes its place ammong hhis other fields of ennquiry.

Hi, nice to make your acquaintance. Looking at your music interests, I wonder if you've run across the work of my friend Jeannie Guerrero? She has published on multiple-perspective art and its influence on Luigi Nono and on Francesco (Landini)'s music, but not on perspective and Medieval music. Thanks for the contributions! Best, -- Myke Cuthbert (talk) 20:17, 23 January 2008 (UTC)


excellent excursus on time and meter- should be in the article on musical meter (assuming there is one), not buried in discussion page to article on "music in unusual time signatures"

Hamlet (bibliographies)Edit

Thank you for your message, and thank you also for writing the bibliographies article. I hadn't been aware it existed but now that I've added it to the template, it will be far more visible. There was some talk of creating a Hamlet Bibliography article (if you see what I mean) so one possibility to consider is that your article could evolve into that. Best wishes.

Peer review ideaEdit

Hi, I have made a proposal that no peer review request be archived without some response. To aid in this, there is a new list of PR requests at least one week old that have had no repsonses beyond a semi-automated peer review. This list is at Wikipedia:Peer review/backlog.

There are just over 100 names on the PR volunteers page, so I figure if each of these volunteers reviewed just one or two PR requests without a response from the list each month, it would easily take care of the "no response" backlog (as there have been 2 or 3 such unanswered requests a day on average).

If you would be able to help out with a review or two a month from the "no responses" backlog list that would be great (and much appreciated). Please discuss questions, comments, or ideas at the PR talk page and thanks in advance for your help, Ruhrfisch ><>°° 00:02, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for your fast response and for agreeing to help. The archive for this month is at Wikipedia:Peer review/March 2008, last month is at Wikipedia:Peer review/February 2008, and so on. My idea was that the volunteers could do one or two a month, so whenever is fine - if everyone tried to do one right now and then waited a month, we would have a big backlog of reviews with no responses, Ruhrfisch ><>°° 00:58, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

Very fine indeed! Good work! I was going to recommend that you also ask Myke Cuthbert to have a look, but I see he's been on the talk page. Glad you got the Baude Cordier, Marenzio, Josquin, and some of the moderns like Crumb. I enjoyed the article; it's well-written and illustrated. I was about to pick through my three volumes of Einstein (coincidentally stacked up right next to me -- I was about to start working on madrigal (music) again) -- but I see you've used those as well. Hey, keep up the good work, and were you here I'd buy you a pint. :) Best, Antandrus (talk) 14:05, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

Btw -- not sure if I ever mentioned how much I'm enjoying seeing the article progress. It's really great; I hope to be able to make some contributions this summer (little things to a great article). Best, -- Myke Cuthbert (talk) 21:51, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

Image linkingEdit

I don't really understand it either tbh. I'm going to have a hunt around the village pump etc and see what i can find. The summation so far seems basically to be that it's not something that's been discussed before, but hopefully the village pump will let more experienced wikipedians, and critically admins, see it and have their say. I'm not hugely fussed either way. One thing I am pretty sure of is that linking to external pictures is a bad idea, because it almost certainly removes any effort to determine and demonstrate fair use. We shall see :) Ged UK (talk) 17:41, 19 March 2008 (UTC)


Hi, how are you? I see you joined us recently! Welcome and good luck!

Now about the “pronunciation thingie” I’m no expert in pronunciation thingies but, Merriam Webster has this “gi-ˈlōsh”, “gē-ˈ(y)ōsh” here: [1],and a “thingie” to listen to it here: [2] , and for the other way they give , listen to that here: [3].

However, according to the guy who thought me most of what I know about this subject, the “thingie” should be something like this, “Gil-u-shay”, because of the thingie over the letter E, in the original way its correctly written (guilloché) .

Well, and the other thing about “Niels Bohr”, his mother was Jewish, that makes him a Jew, at least as far as Halacha is concerned.

religious views of suicideEdit


I’m not sure what you mean, would you please care to elaborate?

Bloger (talk) 18:37, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

What do you mean by “backwards” , do you mean the way its put in writing , (it can be written better!) or do you mean that is a bit contradictory? If that’s what you mean, I can explain, although true one has to give ones life rather than transgress one of the three cardinal sins, its only if someone else takes your life from you if you don’t transgress, but to take one self’s life is not a option, for example if you know with certainty that you wont be able to withstand not transgressing because – let’s say - The fashion in which the forcer will take your life will be especially painful, but you are ready to take a suicide pill without pain rather then transgress, well that won’t be an option.
BTW, what happens if someone couldn’t resist pain and transgresses, and if one needs at all to suffer severe pain (which can be harder then death in some cases, hence the capital punishment v prolonged imprisonment debate) rather then transgress, that’s a subject for itself, and should probably be added to self-sacrifice under Jewish law.

Request for Peer Review helpEdit

Thank you for you work as a peer review volunteer. Since March, there has been a concerted effort to make sure all peer review requests get some response. Requests that have gone three days or longer without a substantial response are listed at Wikipedia:Peer review/backlog. I have three requests to help this continue.

1) If you are asked to do a peer review, please ask the person who made the request to also do a review, preferably of a request that has not yet had feedback. This is fairly simple, but helps. For example when I review requests on the backlog list, I close with Hope this helps. If my comments are useful, please consider peer reviewing an article, especially one at Wikipedia:Peer review/backlog (which is how I found this article). Yours, ...

2) While there are several people who help with the backlog, lately I have been doing up to 3 or 4 peer reviews a day and can not keep this up much longer. We need help. Since there are now well over 100 names on the PR volunteers page, if each volunteer reviewed just one PR request without a response from the list each month, it would easily take care of the "no response" backlog. To help spread out the load, I suggest those willing pick a day of the month and do a review that day (for example, my first edit was on the 8th, so I could pick the 8th). Please pick a peer review request with no responses yet, if possible off the backlog list. If you want, leave a note on my talk page as to which day you picked and I will remind you each month.

3) I have made some proposals to add some limits to peer review requests at Wikipedia_talk:Peer_review#Proposed_limits. The idea is to prevent any one user from overly burdening the process. These seem fairly reasonable (one PR request per editor per day, only four total PR requests per editor at a time, PR requests with cleanup banners can be delisted (like GAN quick fail), and wait two weeks to relist a PR request after it is archived), but have gotten no feedback in one week. If you have any thoughts on these, please weigh in.

Thanks again for your help and in advance for any assistance with the backlog. Ruhrfisch ><>°° 21:06, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

WikiProject Food and Drink Newsletter June 2008Edit

WikiProject Food and Drink Newsletter July 2008Edit

WikiProject Judaism NewsletterEdit

Now with 200% more Jewishness!
Yes, folks, we're moving on up. This newsletter is now the newsletter for both WikiProject Judaism, WikiProject Jewish History, and WikiProject Kabbalah. In the future, I may split them, but for now I think we'll be just fine with one. As always, any questions or comments should be directed to me, L'Aquatique.

A Special Dispatch
Just a note, not aimed at anyone in particular. By order of the administrative cabal, it is officially not cool (and possibly dickish) to call someone an anti-semite when they aren't being anti-semitic. Anti-semitic is a very charged word, and it's important only to use it when you're absolutely sure it applies, lest it become the subject of a Godwin-esque law. Remember Hanlon's Razor: never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.
In the News

  • A new class on the importance scale has been added- C Class- which covers articles better than start but not quite to B Class yet. It is up to the WikiProjects to decide whether to adopt them or not. Currently, there has been little discussion within our Projects, so if you feel strongly either way be sure to note so at your Project[s].
  • There is a proposal to reword the section on NPOV regarding religious articles. Please see Wikipedia_talk:NPOV#Religion section - Disputes between historians or scientists and religious_views to weigh in.
  • Thanks largely to the efforts of Xyz7890, a new navbox has come into being featuring Halakha topics. See: Template talk:Halakha to join in the conversation about how it can best be improved.

To Do

  • The Simple English Wikipedia is beginning a project of creating and improving articles related to religion, including Judaism. At the present time, volunteers are needed to propose our most important subjects for articles to be created. The official working list is here and a more extended list is here. If you are unsure of proper topics, you might try checking our lists of top importance level articles: Judaism and Jewish History. (WikiProject Kabbalah currently doesn't have such a list)
  • [Simple English] WikiProject Christianity is considering running a monthly drive wherein two or three top importance articles from English Wikipedia are simplified and moved over to S.E. They have extended an offer to work with us in creating a similar project for Judaism related articles. For questions or volunteer opportunities, please contact User:John Carter.
  • WikiProject Kabbalah is in dire need of an article rating system for quality and importance. If you are familiar with that system and have some time on your hands, please create one. It could also use some infoboxes...

New Members

New Articles

Leonardo da Vinci peer review

Hi there, I noticed your name on the list of peer review volunteers. I'd be very grateful if you'd take a look at Wikipedia:Peer review/Leonardo da Vinci/archive3. Thanks Papa November (talk) 14:02, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

The Judaism NewsletterEdit

"Censorship" of names of G-d
There is an interesting discussion currently taking place regarding whether or not it is acceptable to censor (i.e. G-d, HaShem->YodHey) names of G-d in articles to protect Jews who may be reading or editing the article. You can weigh in here: Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Judaism#Yahweh.

Article Cleanup Lists
User:B. Wolterding has generously offered us use of his bot to generate lists that show which articles of ours are tagged for cleanup. You can read more about this service here: User:B._Wolterding/Cleanup_listings and if you would like to take him up on his offer, contact him on his talk page.

In the News

  • There is a collaboration drive to get Holocaust in Lithuania to good article status. For information about how you can help, see the talk page or contact User:Piotrus.
  • WikiProject Kabbalah's only Featured and Good articles have been removed from the WikiProject, on the grounds that neither article (Diane Keaton and David Beckham, respectively) actually mention the subject's affiliation with Kabbalah. If you have sourced information linking either of these people to Kabbalah, please add it so the articles can be returned to the WikiProject.
  • After a rather heated discussion, there are now two barnstars for use by the Jewish WikiProjects, {{The Jewish Barnstar}} and {{The New Jewish Barnstar}}, and you can choose which one you would like to use.. Remember: barnstars are for rewarding users who are doing good work on the project or on Judaism, Jewish History, or Kabbalah articles, and anyone can give anyone else a barnstar. If you see a user who you thinks deserves a thank you, give them a barnstar!

To Do/Help Requests

  • If you have some spare time on your hands, we could use an article about a Kabbalah scholar named Moshe Idel. According to HG there are quite a few sources easily available, you can contact him if you have questions. Be sure to nominate it for DYK if the finished article is eligible.
  • The folks at Shimon Peres need some assistance from someone familiar with both the Hebrew calendar and language to help them figure out the subject's birthday. If you can help, please see Talk:Shimon_Peres#Birthday.

New Members

New Articles

  • Bezalel Rudinsky (thanks Shirulashem!}, Jewish tartan (thanks Briangotts!), Hebrew spelling (thanks Epson291)
  • We get a lot of articles that are being created and not announced! By announcing new articles, you attract attention to them, and the more people looking and editing the better they will get. If you would like your new article to appear in the newsletter, add it here for Judaism and Kabbalah and here for Jewish History.
  • There are some 40 odd standing requests for Judaism related articles. Please make them! I would, but I'm too busy writing this.  .

Hey, sorry you never got a response to your request for feedback on Hamlet (bibliographies). Did you still have any questions about it? If so you can always ask me on my talk page (about that article or any other), I'm always glad to try and help out. I'm going to go ahead and tag the section resolved, but definitely let me know if you need anything, or feel free to file another request. Peace, delldot talk 02:55, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of FunistradaEdit

A tag has been placed on Funistrada requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

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 that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the 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. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the article or have a copy emailed to you. Non-dropframe (talk) 07:40, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

Not to worry. That article really piqued my interest and I've made it into an acceptable stub. Off to enjoy a bit of leftover funistrada! --PMDrive1061 (talk) 08:02, 13 January 2009 (UTC)


  • I notice your additions to the article. I will reword them slightly to do away with expressions like "by the same token".
  • Naughty! Naughty! I don't think that you used the "Show preview" before you saved, or checked what you had done after you saved. Your entire edit had stretched itself for a million miles, and put itself in a box.
This is what happens if you add just one little space to the beginning of the sentence. If your edit is long enough, it will run itself right off the edge of your screen...... 

So you need to check after saving. The Show Preview is a very useful function.

  • Given what you have written, I think perhaps we should leave the pic showing the internal organs, and make a note to indicate that it ties with what you have written.
  • Or, on the other hand, do you think we should replace the pic with a really accurate drawing?

I think that the internal organs, however innacurate, is good, because it indicates a reality about Leonardo that people don't always want to accept- He was undoubtedly a genius, but that doesn't mean he always got it right!

Amandajm (talk) 09:53, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

OK! I reworded it a bit and included a direct reference to the drawing beside it. What we have now is a wiki-problem. This might seem all too obvious to you because you know your subject, however....
The statement that lack of preservation methods probably/possibly contributed is what is labelled here a Original Research. In other words, regardless of how well you know it to be true, and what your qualifications are, you are not permitted to make that sort of explanation, unless you can back it up with a written source. It's terribly boring, and it drives people with expertise away, but that is how it is! Which means that either you or I will have to come up with some written source that can be cited.
Also, please ignore my rather rude "edit summary". I get cross when experienced editors don't bother to look, but one makes allowances for newer editors because they often don't know what they have done to cause a formatting problem. There is a dear fellow who used to delete every single edit that I made, if the formatting wasn't right. After we'd come to verbal blows a few times we became good friends.
Amandajm (talk) 10:23, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

Leo and MusicEdit

According to Vasari, Leonardo had a beautiful singing voice. He created a silver lute in the shape of a horses head. It was so beautiful that Lorenzo de'Medici sent Leo as his ambassador to the court of Lud the Moor, taking the lute as a present. (I can't help wondering if it was in fact a lyre out of a goat or gazels skull which is a traditional symbol of Orpheus or Apollo). I don't know of any music that Leonardo composed. However, the portrait of a musician which is attributed to him could be one of three people, and is perhaps himself.

Lorenzo and Leonardo were the same age. I can fully understand why Lorenzo wanted Leonardo out of his way. If Vasari is to be believe, he was tall, very handsome, could perfom phenomenal feats of strengths, had a voice that charmed the birds down from the trees and was extremely entertaining. Lorenzo, on the other hand, was plain, with a nose like a ski ramp, an overbiting jaw and a grating voice. He was medium height with broad shoulders but skinny legs, (and the fashion for young men was for short tunics and hose). Leonardo wore short tunics most of his life, while Lorenzo went into longer garbs as soon as his status would allow him. Lorenzo's redeeming features were his magnificent large dark eyes and his irresistibly charming manner.

There is no way that Leonardo da Vinci would have lapped up the philosophies put forward at the Medici Academy. For a start, he was ineligible for university, being illegitimate, and never studied Greek. One would suppose that he had some grasp of church Latin. He relied all his life on primary sources rather than the written word. For all their talk about nature, this was not what the Academy was on about. I think Lorenzo saw Leonardo as his biggest rival. He sent him away, even though Leonardo had just received a very important commission. If the Adoration of the Magi had been finished, it would have been without doubt one of the supreme masterpieces of the Renaissance.

Hi there Shlishke! I've noticed you have yourself listed as a member of the Food and Drink Wikiproject. Unfortunately it looks like the project has been slowly sliding into inactivity except for a couple of people. That makes me a sad potato, and nobody likes a sad potato amirite?

If you'd like to turn my frown upside down, can you do two small things?

First off, go here and add {{Tick}} ( Y) next to your name if you're still part of the project.

Second, go to the project talkpage and participate in a discussion about how to make the project more active, and how to go about making articles in our area of interest a lot better.

You don't want to make me cry, do you? Potatoes have a lot of eyes you know. So come on, join in! :)
