Hello, Dockingman. Here's a belated welcome to Wikipedia. Here are a few good links that you might not have read yet:

Thank you for your contributions. CWC(talk) 02:23, 15 October 2006 (UTC)

Mexican Motor MafiaEdit

This article was nominated for proposed deletion 3 minutes after you created it. I've cancelled the proposed deletion. (In case someone else wants to delete that article, it's worth noting that GameTunnel award pages would count as a "non-trivial published work" about the game, per Wikipedia:Notability (software)#Criteria.) Cheers, CWC(talk) 02:23, 15 October 2006 (UTC)


I've reverted your edit, since the subjective remark you referred to had already been removed 2 edits prior to yours – I'm curious: was it still there when you last visited the page? As for the free base/phosphate salt question, drugbox and article data (including the structural diagram) usually refer only to the free base. Fvasconcellos 18:32, 18 October 2006 (UTC)

  • I guess we probably started the edit at the same time, or I'm not sure what happenned... The pharmaceutical giant was there, but now I can't find it with diffs. I think it took me a little bit to modify the article because I got distracted in the middle, but I'm not sure how would that make a version disappear... Thanks for the info on the free bases though, I wasn't sure how to deal with them -- dockingmanTalk 18:47, 18 October 2006 (UTC)
That was probably it – I guess I must have finished my edit before you finished yours, so you didn't get an "Edit conflict" message. Anyway, welcome! Fvasconcellos 20:45, 18 October 2006 (UTC)

Molecular dockingEdit

Hi, my name is Maxim, i work for Quantum Pharmaceuticals, may I ask you why you delete our information and link to Quantum docking. The development of this program is a milestone in docking area, it does not use training sets and scoring functions because it is pure physics based. It produces superior results in comparison with competition, even for molecules of absolutely novel chemical classes. You can find more information about technology at www.q-pharm.com and www.q-lead.com and even test IC50 calculation on-line freely. So it a really interesting, innovative tool, having nothing to do QSAR and other statistics based approaches. I think we all should be honest ane let people know about the real breakthrough in docking. If you don't like the way I place this information, please correct it and may I kindly ask you not to delete it. Kindest regards, Maxim --—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 16:05, 30 October 2006(UTC)

The way you are posting links to Q-Pharm looks definitely like spam. The page of Quantum Pharmaceuticals was already deleted twice for not complying with the notability required for inclusion into an encyclopedia. I don't know if you are aware of it, but Wikipedia is not a place to self-advertise your own products. Besides that, your last modification to Molecular docking did not look like it had a neutral point of view. Please understand that this is not a place for advertising, you can go elsewhere for it. This is not a personal attack, we're trying to improve the Molecular docking article and your addition just doesn't do anything better for it. Besides, "docking without scoring"? What's the point of generating a conformation if you're not going to give it a score? That doesn't make sense to me (and anyone in the docking field). Even if the scoring is physics-based, it's still a score. Where is the comparative study of your software versus state-of-the-art software published? I'm interested in reading into it. -- dockingmanTalk 17:51, 30 October 2006 (UTC)

Dear Sir, I am sorry for a delay with an answering your question, but I will control that our scientific team post a proper answer ASAP. We will make a detailed review and corrections in Molecular docking article explaning our technology as a next generation approach in comparison with QSAR and scoring. For now I would like to mention that free evaluation of our molecular docking program is available at Quantum Pharmaceuticals web site, everybody can also play with free on-line IC50 calculator showcasing abilities of our software and core algorithm and read some our computer aided drug design and docking related articles. We welcome most sceptical experts to test software and share their opinion. The most important thing here are your words as a docking expert that "What's the point of generating a conformation if you're not going to give it a score? That doesn't make sense to me (and anyone in the docking field). Even if the scoring is physics-based, it's still a score." It means that making docking without a scoring is a real breakthrough and we altogether should inform our community ASAP about this next step in the technology and implement these achievments. But anyway the best way of doing this is just playing with software trying to resolve most challenging tasks that scoring functions are unable to resolve. Thank you, Maxim--—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 13:51, 15 December 2006(UTC)

Guy RubinoEdit

My pleasure - I try to fix things like that as I catch 'em, and I do like hanging around the Newpages list from time to time.

Happy editing! --User:AlbertHerring Io son l'orecchio e tu la bocca: parla! 07:53, 4 November 2006 (UTC)

Follow MeEdit

Sorry I really don't know too much about it, my Chinese friend said that this is where she originally learnt English and that she still thinks of Francis Matthews as her first English teacher! mr_uu 13:24, 5 December 2006 (UTC)


The rules have changed (or been clarified) a bit for {{db-repost}}. It now specifically only refers to items previously deleted as a result of an XfD discussion. It cannot be used on a previously speedied article, only articles that have an AFD deletion. Fan-1967 22:16, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

Requested move for St. Anne Church, GoaEdit

You put this request in the 'uncontroversial moves' section at WP:RM, but also placed the move proposal template on the article. (BTW, it goes on the talk page, not the article itself.) For now I've removed the proposal from the uncontroversial listings. If it really is uncontroversial, please relist it; otherwise list it in the main section and discuss it with other editors on the talk page. Thanks! Opabinia regalis 01:16, 8 December 2006 (UTC)

Article in need of cleanup - please assist if you canEdit

post nominal lettersEdit


I see that you have added Elizabeth Mays academic degrees after her name on her page. I would like to point out the Order of Canada is placed before all other letters except VC for the Victoria Cross and CV for the Cross of Valour. Academic degrees always go after Orders and Decorations. see [1] Dowew 01:32, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Webdreams.jpgEdit

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Webdreams.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Rettetast 11:44, 19 September 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the advice dockingman, much appreciated, will try to remember it....very new to this! tks —Preceding unsigned comment added by Wildernessart (talkcontribs) 03:32, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

biased contributionsEdit

the contributions i made are all based on fact including sources that have already been accepted by wikipedia. Regarding the statement i recently added about the schulich undergrad program being the most difficult to be accepted to in Canada it is based on the fact that the only other program to have an entrance average close to the bba at schulich is the sauder business school at UBC which does not require as many extracurricular activities. the Arts and Sciences program at McMaster U requires only low 90s and nothing more to be admitted. These three programs are the hardest in Canada and the one at Schulich is the most difficult to get into. there is no undergraduate program at McGill that is nearly as hard to be admitted to including their bcom or engineering. the same holds true of U of T, Queens, and applied science at Waterloo. Cheers, cyril2006. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Cyril2006 (talkcontribs) 19:31, 30 October 2007

PS feel free to add the sources yourself so that this non-stereotypical fact about York University is part of the peoples' information. Otherwise it leaves the wiki project to be little more than repetition of stereotypes. It seems that the most obvious and easily sourced information is the only thing that ends up in wikipedia so no new perspectives appear. The "peoples" project is manned by people whose views are so forged by existing stereotypes from established non wiki sources that it has become redundant. They spend time adding things to U of T or McGill but never to York or other lesser known schools. ~~Cyril2006~~ —Preceding unsigned comment added by Cyril2006 (talkcontribs) 02:22, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

Image editEdit

Just to let you know... I uploaded an edit over Image:Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7 front.jpg, just some minor adjustments. If I have done anything unsatisfactory, you can revert the edit. BTW, the picture is rather small and blurry with a bit of jpeg artifacts, so if you are able to retake the picture under more optimal circumstances, perhaps it could be replaced by a better picture. thegreen J Are you green? 21:35, 20 November 2007 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7Edit

I have nominated Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7, an article you created, for deletion. I do not feel that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7. Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time.

By all means, change it if you like. I see your point. Thanks for pitching in! Cheers, Her Pegship (tis herself) 05:26, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Michael Smith chef.jpgEdit

Thank you for uploading Image:Michael Smith chef.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this image under "fair use" may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the image description page and add or clarify the reason why the image qualifies for fair use. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a fair use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for images used under the fair use policy require both a copyright tag and a fair use rationale.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it might be deleted by adminstrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot (talk) 15:19, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:Michael_Smith_chef.jpgEdit

Thanks for uploading Image:Michael_Smith_chef.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media 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 this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Rettetast (talk) 11:28, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Accelrys logo.gifEdit

Thanks for uploading Image:Accelrys logo.gif. You've indicated that the image meets Wikipedia's criteria for non-free content, but there is no explanation of why it meets those criteria. Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. If you have any questions, please post them at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions.

Thank you for your cooperation. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page. STBotI (talk) 14:26, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

Los SimuladoresEdit

Hi, I found during a Google search that you have Los Simuladores listed as a projcet in your sandbox, and that you are a native of Argentina. I learned about that show some time ago, it piqued my interest greatly and I have acquired copies of the Argentina original. But the first season does not have subtitles, and I know only the most basic Spanish. I have looked everywhere online and cannot find any subtitles or captions available. I can't even find a fan website. Do you know of any place that has translations of the show? (Or, if not, would you be willing to assist in a transcription project? If I even had only the Spanish in text, I could easily translate it via computer & dictionary, I think.) If you would prefer to email me instead of replying through Wikipedia, I am at mds9f7@mail.mst.edu or matt.sherrill@gmail.com

Narcotango (album)Edit

Hi, thanks for creating this article. It has been unreferenced and tagged for notability since 2008. If you think it does meet WP:NALBUMS and you have reliable sources, please revert my edit (redirecting it to artist's pg) and edit the article. Best wishes, Boleyn (talk) 09:37, 16 February 2013 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:Narcotango album cover.jpg)Edit

  Thanks for uploading File:Narcotango album cover.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Hazard-Bot (talk) 04:26, 17 February 2013 (UTC)
