Hello,

Why did you remove the links to the not-yet-existant pages for the Axiom of Choice and the Well-Ordering Theorem on the [[Zorn's Lemma]] article?  They inform the unknowing reader that these are related topics, and might prompt the knowing reader to write articles on them.  &mdash;[[User:Boy Soprano II|Boy Soprano II]] 17:45, 25 November 2007 (EST)

Red links on Zorn's Lemma Page

Hello,

Why did you remove the links to the not-yet-existant pages for the Axiom of Choice and the Well-Ordering Theorem on the Zorn's Lemma article? They inform the unknowing reader that these are related topics, and might prompt the knowing reader to write articles on them. —Boy Soprano II 17:45, 25 November 2007 (EST)

(In response to your reply on my talk page) I respectfully disagree. The Axiom of Choice, is a controversial topic which, in my opinion, deserves more attention than it should receive in an article about Zermelo-Fraenkel set theory in general. However, I will concede the point, at least while nobody has written an article about it on this wiki. But the well-ordering theorem is a nontrivial result which, for one thing, extends the concept of induction to any set, regardless of size, and which, as far as I can tell, is not discussed anywhere on the wiki, certainly not on the page about the Zermelo-Fraenkel Axioms. If you are really in doubt as to whether these are substantial topics, I suggest you look here and here.

I hope we can come to an agreement soon,

JS

Sorry, couldn’t resist answering your question. JS is disabled on the AoPSWiki (it seems that you’re from Wikipedia; the monobook.js file doesn’t work here). Apparently there’s a loophole with enabling JS which would allow users to steal each others passwords - see AoPSWiki:Discussion#monobook.js. If using <script> tags would work, then it would be a security flaw. Azjps (talk) 16:09, 10 April 2007 (EDT)

XP Math Article

OK, I decided that the XP math article was fine. Sorry for being rude; I wasn't thinking straight then. Don't make it an advertisement though. --solafidefarms 20:51, 10 April 2007 (EDT)

Oh, and I don't know what an advertisement is either here...--solafidefarms 21:57, 10 April 2007 (EDT)

Templates and Formatting

(Re) Special:Prefixindex provides all of the templates. There aren’t too many anyways, since this wiki is relatively new. Btw, the incorrect syntax on my userpage was just a [really bad] joke; thanks nevertheless for your attentiveness.
I think the reason nothing is happening on your userpage is because the <div> tags are inside of the <table> tags but outside of the <tr> tags. Haven’t tested though, so I’m not positive. Azjps (talk) 18:19, 11 April 2007 (EDT)
Take a look at Special:Statistics (2nd section) and you’ll see what I mean. Azjps (talk) 15:18, 13 April 2007 (EDT)

Copyright

I was worrying about license also, but I didn't really stop to think about the consequences of copying some pictures licensed under the GPL would have. (I really wish somebody would created AoPSWiki:Copyright to give a more explicit definition of what is allowed, the forum sticky related to the topic leaves us trailing with "a documentation license will be decided upon later") And unfortunately my knowledge about copyrights and such is terrible, though I wasn’t as concerned about this particular case since it didn’t seem to be related to the direct purpose of the AoPSWiki …

I guess if it turns out that it’s not allowed, I can go through and rewrite the template from scratch (which I believe is allowed). In the meantime though, I don’t know what to do with the images uploaded .. most are just solid colored and are easily re-creatable, so I guess they won’t be that much of a problem? Azjps (talk) 21:53, 17 September 2007 (EDT)

Never mind, I rewrote the code anyway. It actually turned out to be quite easy (just a 9 by 9 table and a lot of copy+pasting). By the way, the [edit] links don’t appear to be scrolling when I scroll down your user talk page, so I can’t seem to edit the section directly. Azjps (talk) 16:19, 18 September 2007 (EDT)
I use IE 6 (perhaps I should upgrade). It could just be the browser, since a lot of things appear to be displaced when I view certain pages (A:D#Math on the page is horribly garbled). Azjps (talk) 16:29, 18 September 2007 (EDT)
Now that the format has changed, the problem has gone away! Azjps (talk) 18:46, 19 September 2007 (EDT)

ok this works -this message was left unsigned by User:anirudh

Resources

I discovered the resources page by accident via Google :D. Here it is. Azjps (talk) 14:34, 8 October 2007 (EDT)

  • I don't know if you noticed already but there seem to be a couple of typos with the competition problems. Azjps (talk) 19:00, 12 October 2007 (EDT)

IMO 2007, Problem 3

Hi, what was the problem with the solution I have posted?

Jff 08:26, 29 October 2007 (EDT)


I am one of the authors, so copyright is not a problem. And the document has many unconventional notations that are our own LaTeX macros. I don't really have time to copy and paste the document and I think the link would be useful.

WP

Yeah, that's me. Except I haven’t been active on Wikipedia for a really long time (so long, in fact that somebody hacked my account and deleted the main page with it once). Azjps (talk) 22:56, 24 November 2007 (EST)
