"It's not my fault you guys are stodgey [sic] and antiquated" - The fault lies with Noah Webster for the decision to split the language. See Spelling_reform#Successes_in_spelling_complication and also American_and_British_English_spelling_differences, It's not my fault "you guys" are not educated enough about the world outside of the borders of the United States.

Noah Webster[edit]

Jooler has made an incorrect claim. Please see: User:Cultural_Freedom/FAQ#Noah_Webster. He is correct, however, about the importance of following Wipipedia's guidelines on spelling. --Cultural Freedom 2006-07-21 16:03 (UTC)

Reverse Osmosis Water Purification Unit[edit]

hello Kajmal :-)

I was looking through articles tagged as Stub when I saw Reverse Osmosis Water Purification Unit. Is Reverse Osmosis Water Purification Unit a term used exclusively by the US Armed Forces? Couldn't it be a generic term? A unit that is used for Reverse_osmosis#Drinking_water_purification? I don't know much about it, but I remember studying something about it in high-school. :-) Cheers and Happy editing! --anirudh 14:16, 7 July 2006 (UTC)

that clarifies things..thanks... :) mm........wots these numbers mean? (AFSC: 3E451) .. Happy editing! :-) -06:34, 8 July 2006 (UTC)
Brainwave!!!! check AFSC!!! ... so you are a Civil Engineer? And a journeyman...and you know a Germanic language... Is that correct? Not complete tho, is it? what does the 4 mean? Air Force Specialty Code says Career Field Subdivision (Numerical, different for each career field)... and what does that imply? How do we know which Germanic language? --anirudh 14:07, 8 July 2006 (UTC)
Interesting... :-) Happy editing... --05:56, 9 July 2006 (UTC)

File:Bdsm-emblem.gif[edit]

I see that the image is back, and this time marked as Copyrighted, and Quagmyr has irrevocably released all rights. I just spoke with him an email not long ago, and asked him to do just that, and he declined, allowing only limited usage. Could you please document Quagmyr's release, so that the image doesn't get deleted again? I will send him a quick note also to check that he is okay with this. Atom 21:03, 1 September 2006 (UTC)

So sorry, I know that you, and others feel that it can't be copyrighted, but that isn't the issue. This is Wikipedia. Wikipedia respects intellectual property. A copyright is claimed. It is someone elses battle on whether that is true or not. Atom 01:43, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

Indeed. If you were to make your own image, your own creative work, similar, but different than Quagmyr's image, upload it and offer it into the public domain, there would be nothing anyone could do about it. The existing image's primary difference from the ancient triskelion symbol is that the "legs" rotate in the opposite direction to the standard triskelion design (counter-clockwise), that he has added "holes" (not dots), and that this is unique, and has a representative meaning ("the holes represent the incompleteness of any individual within the BDSM context"), and that it is encircled, and that it has distinctive colors not associated with any triskelion graphic or symbol. And so, it is artistically unique, different, and original authorship.

If your design goes in the same direction as the ancient design (clockwise), and does not have holes (perhaps nothing, or perhaps "dots", not holes, and different coloration, then not only would it be a different and unique design, but anyone claiming it was would indeed, have to say how it was different from the non-copyrightable ancient triskelion symbol. Either way, you would succeed. Atom 02:01, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:K._Eric_Drexler.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:K._Eric_Drexler.jpg. I notice the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the image description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original Replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or a similar) image under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that fair use images which could be replaced by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted 7 days after this notification, per our Fair Use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. – Quadell (talk) (random) 11:39, 9 July 2007 (UTC)

File source problem with File:DoD Police Badge.jpg[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:DoD Police Badge.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 03:53, 10 September 2009 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Salavat (talk) 03:53, 10 September 2009 (UTC)

Well just that in the source field that you got it from the internal *.mil network, that would satisify my source requirements. Salavat (talk) 05:39, 11 September 2009 (UTC)

Comments from Atticusattor[edit]

---Thanks for repairing the horrible computer-generated formatting in my rewrite of the "Thesis-Antithesis-Synthesis" stub article. I'm a rookie when it comes to Wikipedia, and I couldn't figure out how to get rid of that rectangle enclosing the first line of each new paragraph. My original edit simply copied and pasted a rewrite I had on a word processing (WordPerfect) document. That was a disaster. Almost the entire text ran off the right-hand margin and fell of the edge of the earth. I next tried copying and pasting individual paragraphs but adding my own line breaks. I would hit "Enter" (begin new line) where each line should end. That led to the result you saw and corrected. Every' paragraph's first line was separated from the rest and enclosed in a rectangle. Finally, my fairy godfather came along and applied his magic wand to my ragged text. I don't know what you did, but I'm grateful that you did it. --Atticusattor
