Yes, they were sharing computers, and in fact, I wrote this to show them how to leave messages.--Guy vandegrift (discusscontribs) 22:35, 11 January 2017 (UTC)

Miraheze page and project for PHY 1060[edit]

Sir,

User Jer-S wsul040 / Phy 1060 class, am I to put my potential project multiple choice questions directly onto my Miraheze page? (I have updated the Miraheze page to reflect an example of what I mean). Thank you.

Yes, but keep in mind two things:
  1. Don't use Miraheze if it gives you any trouble.
  2. Keep a backup file. There are a number of ways to do this. I will discuss in class.--Guy vandegrift (discusscontribs) 15:51, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

Guy vandegrift/ktt[edit]

Was this page supposed to be in your userspace? -Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 23:58, 29 March 2017 (UTC)

Good question. First, it was supposed to be Guy vandegrift/T/ktt but I forgot to place it in that "T" personal space. A while back Dave_Braunschweig requested that we refrain from making templates that others are not likely to use, and this one is intended to keep lines on the same page using a page-break that only appears if one prints out the pdf. I need it to prepare exams. I ended up using it on a private Miraheze wiki because it was needed to create page breaks for an exam I was printing. Someday I hope that teachers routinely do all their writing in Wikitext on private wikis. Some exams can't be seen by students, so I write them on https://wright.miraheze.org/wiki/Main_Page or perhaps on https://wikiversity.miraheze.org/wiki/Main_Page. I created those to wikis, but also "adopted" a wiki that someone else created at https://freecollegeproject.miraheze.org/wiki/Main_Page
I have decided that Wikiversity is essential to "making education free", but needs to be supplemented with private wikis so that instructors could share ideas about exam, and so students could write in a way that competing students can watch what they are doing. See https://wright100.miraheze.org/wiki/Main_Page for a first-rate essay that eventually needs to be imported into Wikiversity. By writing this essay in private, the student will get sole credit for their work, something important to the letter grade of a course, as well as placement on a student's resume when they go out looking to start careers.--Guy vandegrift (discusscontribs) 00:37, 30 March 2017 (UTC)

Your submissions to the WJS[edit]

Hi Guy! I've been reworking the submission process of the WJS. You can see a draft of the new approach at WikiJournal of Science/Contribute. You will see I have included for review the six articles you posted in the zeroth-issue of the journal. If any of them is reviewed, it will be included in the first issue. However, I wanted to ask you to take a quick look at each of them and consider if they are all ready for review, or if some of them need work or are no longer appropriate for the journal. Thanks! --Felipe (discusscontribs) 23:26, 25 April 2017 (UTC)

The new format looks good! Regarding my advice:
  1. I didn't read Atlantis/Location Hypotheses but recall that someone objected to it being on Wikiversity. I would hesitate to publish that one without at least two good reviews. In fact I would hesitate no matter how many good reviews it recieved.
  2. The two Wikipedia articles Alpha Centauri and Astronomical spectroscopy have already been pre-approved by myself and one other professional. I would be happy to double check the latest version on Wikipedia. I think one of the useful functions of the Journal might be to "certify" short and accurate WP articles. These articles occasionally degrade in quality as WP editors add material. The new material isn't wrong -- just unnecessary.
  3. I am qualified to referee the physics articles that were submitted, and will get back to you soon on those as a reviewer. I am really excited to see what happens to this Journal in the near future.--Guy vandegrift (discusscontribs) 12:33, 26 April 2017 (UTC)

Link from Hilbert Book Project/Quaternionic Field Equations to Maxwell's Equations[edit]

Quaternionic partial differential equations are a pure mathematical fairly close equivalent of Maxwell equations. The page forms part of the Hilbert Book Model Project. I am open to any criticism or remarks. Greetings, Hans.--HansVanLeunen (discusscontribs) 13:19, 2 May 2017 (UTC)

This doesn't look like a lower division physics concept, and I have enough on my plate with my students already.--Guy vandegrift (discusscontribs) 15:48, 2 May 2017 (UTC)

Hi Guy vandegrift!

Your laboratory: Solar eclipse lab on a sunny day appears to be well-developed and ready for learners! Would you like to have it announced on our Main Page News? --Marshallsumter (discusscontribs) 15:05, 11 June 2017 (UTC)

Informal Learning Activities[edit]

Hello Guy,

You might remember that, over a year ago, you offered me support in a Wikiversity project I proposed to put together.

Well, it's got to a stage where it could go public but I have a few questions to ask, apart from those about how to go public. (Or is it already public?)

Cheers, Wnholmes (discusscontribs) 12:02, 20 June 2017 (UTC)

I looked at, and yes it is public. You might be asked by others to change the name of the resource, but I personally have no objections. If you are asked to move it, I assure you that the new place (i.e. name) will be more appropriate. I will go into your mainspace resource and fix your links.--Guy vandegrift (discusscontribs) 14:59, 20 June 2017 (UTC)
