Atlantis[edit]

Rayleigh 22 (John Garner)

Dave,

Is there any way I can get permission to use this map...

https://www.britannica.com/media/full/41191/610

...on the Atlantis Location Hypothesis? I need you to direct me on how I can do this so I will not have to ask you to do it all of the time. Thanks!

As I told Sidelight22, I use the computer at three different places, at work where I am now, at home and at my son's house occasionally. That's why I have 3 IP addresses. Just an FYI. I am not 3 people, OK?

No. See http://corporate.britannica.com/termsofuse.html . But you also don't need to use this map. There are open alternatives available. See Commons:Category:Mid-Atlantic Ridge as a starting point. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 13:24, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

Got the e-mail with the page you gave me as an e-mail today. Is it possible to use as a reference as a hyperlink?

I will use the map you suggest. Thanks.

Dave,

A some point I need to get the new re-organized Atlantis Location Hypothesis out of the sandbox. I need Marshallsumter to approve it because I used his Iberian section to prove the levels of the ocean were low enough to expose the MAR and Azores Plateau.

My whole idea of super volcano eruption has changed because of an explanation I found as to why they erupt. It turns out it is not so much a pressure phenomena as it is an idea of magma escaping around the borders of the lithosphere plug due to the pressure of the lithosphere on the caldera. IF the magma of the caldera goes down, as it would cause the lithosphere plug to fall into caldera pushing the magma out. You can picture it in your mind what happens next.

Please advise and if you have a chance drop Marshallsumter a note to see if he objects. If he does I will come up with something else but it will not be nearly so elegant as his piece.

Please continue this discussion with User:Marshallsumter. I am not involved in the Atlantis project and have not sent you any email messages. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 12:16, 25 May 2017 (UTC)

Translations[edit]

Dear Dave, I have created the Hilbert Book Model Project in English. It now contains 16+ pages. English is not my native language. So I have translated already six pages back to Dutch and used the translation template to link the top level pages. That works fine. But I also tried to link lower level pages via the translation template. I have not yet found a way to achieve this. Wikiversity does not yet support the Dutch (nl) Wikiversity. For me that is not a big problem. Most educated Dutch people can read English. However, a Dutch Hilbert Book Model Project at Wikiversity may be a great help for students. The links work perfectly at the toplevel. So, I am eager to know how I can link multilanguage pages horizontally in a project. Gr, Hans. HansVanLeunen (discusscontribs) 21:41, 26 May 2017 (UTC)

@HansVanLeunen: The {{Translations}} template appears to work correctly as is. See Hilbert Book Model Project/Hilbert Book Model/nl. Note that support for Dutch Wikiversity would be at https://beta.wikiversity.org until a sufficient number of regular contributors is identified. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 22:04, 26 May 2017 (UTC)

Dave, The translations template indeed works properly in the way that you indicate. However the link at the top points to the English version and is inaccessible to the author of the page. I added an extra link. That seems to work. Thanks, Hans HansVanLeunen (discusscontribs) 09:36, 27 May 2017 (UTC)

File:Fraud.pdf[edit]

Hi Dave Braunschweig!

The above .pdf and three others uploaded by Professor John R. Brashear MBA, CPA, appear to be for use in his courses at Texas A&M University Corpus Christi. I was about to delete all four per no license as noted by your bot. These can also be fair use for now rather than deleted. Do you have any info on their use or would you like me to contact him about them? --Marshallsumter (discusscontribs) 15:59, 28 May 2017 (UTC)

These files cannot be tagged as Fair Use. Fair Use requires use, and the files are not being used. Users also can't claim their own work as fair use. They own the copyright. You need to either work with Professor Brashear to apply proper licensing to the files, or delete them consistent with Wikiversity policy. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 23:40, 28 May 2017 (UTC)
He was an adjunct professor for the spring semester using these. Term and courses over so I deleted all! --Marshallsumter (discusscontribs) 00:01, 29 May 2017 (UTC)
