When you say that a book is Douglas Adam's only non-fiction work, you need to check around. I think you miss the salmon of doubt. --PenguinIntegral 21:33, 21 June 2006 (EDT)

I agree that the titles in my small "rational approximation" series are far from perfection, so feel free to change them. On the other hand, the proof of the non-Liouvillian charachter of $\pi$, say, is sufficiently long and complicated to deserve its own article. My plan was to give the proofs for $\pi$, $e$ and $\ln 2$. To combine them all in one article would be a disaster: it'll be just too long to be readable. Anyway, if you can come up with a better structure and article titles for this small series, I'll be only happy. By the way, should I post my replies here or in my own User Talk section? This time I did both.--Fedja 13:00, 26 June 2006 (EDT)

EDIT: I was trying to create a template, and had a question, but I figured it out. Sorry! --Sean 23:19, 26 June 2006 (EDT)

Using the "+" button

When leaving messages on other people's user talk pages, it is generally advised to use the "+" button unless you're replying on the same topic. This creates a nice table of contents, and makes everything nice and neat, and you can see the different conversations rather than it all be jumbled together ;) Ignite168 23:45, 30 June 2006 (EDT)

Heh. :) --MCrawford 23:47, 30 June 2006 (EDT)

Protected pages?

Can I ask why some pages are protected? Ones such as Art of Problem Solving, Art of Problem Solving Foundation, etc? Usually articles are only protected during an edit war or they may be protected for 15 minutes or so during a heavy attack of vandalism but there is probably zero vandalism on AoPSWiki and it seems you were the only contributor to Art of Problem Solving. I'm sure many other editors can make contributions too and Wikipedia doesn't have the article Wikipedia protected. (although it is semi-protected and even semi-protections are used as a preemptive counter as vandalism) I was wanting to expand the forum section a bit but I found I couldn't to my dismay. Would you reconsider protecting it? Ignite168 17:26, 2 July 2006 (EDT)

I want to organize the information under those pages personally. Also, I don't even want to leave open the possibility of vandalism.--MCrawford 17:30, 2 July 2006 (EDT)

2006 AMC 12A Problems 1-9

Ugh, while moving problem pages to subpages, it seems like I used a backslash for problems 1 through 9 instead of a foward slash. Now this has messed up those pages and will not let me move them. Do you think I should manually copy and paste the pages over to their correct locations? This would cause the history to be erased though although there isn't much history.

You're silly. But I'm honored to be considered on a par with Euler and Gauss. :) --ComplexZeta 12:28, 30 July 2006 (EDT)

I just want to say that I thoughly enjoyed the NT book, and I think that adding the "All your base are belong to us" as an Extra was utterly brilliant. --IntrepidMath 11:09, 3 August 2006 (EDT)
