Here are some useful links in case you haven't already found them;

I have removed the "standard" comment, since it is ambiguous. As well as the 1981 comment, since this text is not overly clear on this. Please direct such specific comments to my talkpage, to be sure I noticed them. Lirath Q. Pynnor


Re: Speedy deletion: Sure - that's great! Mark Richards 00:04, 31 Mar 2004 (UTC)


Mark,

Sorry about the Airy issue on lunar craters. I did a Google search, but only looked at the first few pages.

  • Now I check, and don't have any trouble finding the lunar crater. Must have been a bad day. Or I saw what I expected to see.

I had overlooked the existence of an article on the Sousa march and agree that a link to it in the article about the newspaper is sufficient. However, the title of the Sousa march is simply "The Washington Post" (not "The Washington Post March", the former title of the article about the march) and so I moved the article on the march to The Washington Post (march) and adjusted the article about the newspaper accordingly; see Talk:The Washington Post.

The Humungous Image Tagging Project[edit]

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. That must be better than looking for at at and the the, non? You know you'll love it. best wishes --Tagishsimon (talk)

Article Licensing[edit]

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 2000 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)
