Reply to welcome

I'm somewhat familiar with wiki software from Wikipedia.

I looked at your special:recentchanges last night and so many changes were chemical element articles, my favorite kind of work (besides inorganic compounds). That's nice.

People on English Wikipedia did not like my creationist viewpoint and had an attitude like "Oh we have to reeducate the poor misled baby sheep led astray by people who know more than us."

Anyway, I hope to be editing articles soon! You may find articles in a format similar to this because that is my favorite article format.

about incorrect information

On talk pages of articles, please quote the sentence or content that is wrong, and provide substantive arguments why, and then we can talk about it. Welcome aboard. --Tony 10:41, 3 December 2010 (PST)

Glad I can provide a friendly atmosphere compared to Conservapedia :)!--Tony 14:55, 3 December 2010 (PST)

Community here?

I assume that you are the founder here. 1.Are you allowed to talk with users here? 2.Are my recent uploads at the media pool fine? Thanks, --Chemicalinterest (talk) 05:36, 3 December 2010 (PST)

Yes - thats allowed - but there is policy which limits the discussion to "creation wiki and its content". Specifically because we dont want non-editors using it as a discussion forum.

The uploads are acceptable, but more information is generally preferred. On some you put your username as the source, but others you did not - just "own work". It is also better to make a declarative statement for copyright status - something like - "I author of the work hereby release this image into the public domain".

It would also be helpful to categorize them as the name of the element or compound. (i.e. [[category:potasssium]] )

--Ashcraft - (talk) 11:00, 3 December 2010 (PST)

I didn't know the categories existed; if they do then I can add them when I'm done working. --Chemicalinterest (talk) 11:12, 3 December 2010 (PST)

about new articles

Hey I see you started a new article, can't wait to read it... However if you want to keep it from being edited while you work on it, check my article out with a template that will help you. --Tony 15:42, 3 December 2010 (PST)

See a template I created on Wikipedia that says the exact opposite! Sorry for the annoying Wikipedia ad, by the way. --Chemicalinterest (talk) 15:46, 3 December 2010 (PST)
OK, cool... What im saying is, you don't need to add the words, "work in progress" at the top of your site. We have specific templates for that. No worries.--Tony 15:48, 3 December 2010 (PST)
How is the article oxidation state and the article electrolyte? --Chemicalinterest (talk) 17:00, 3 December 2010 (PST)

resurrection

If I may comment on your book... I believe that the resurrection of Jesus was by a process that humans are not capable of understanding, e.g. a miracle. --Chemicalinterest (talk) 15:50, 3 December 2010 (PST)
The book is not trying to describe the miraculous event of the bodily resurrection. It is trying to use academic argumentation and rigorous historical critical methods to show by way of bedrock factual data that the supernatural miracle resurrection is the only plausible explanation. What the book is trying to do is deal with is, "The question of the historicity of Jesus' resurrection" which "has been repeatedly probed, investigated and debated. And the results have varied widely."
The book is about academic research and scholarly historiographical orientation and practice by liberal and conservative NT scholars, atheists, etc. What it does it make a historiographical case that the only valid conclusion, is not naturalistic paths that critics use, but a supernatural miraculous event.--Tony 15:54, 3 December 2010 (PST)
Correct. I thought it was trying to ëxplain away" (have no idea why the first quote didn't work) the resurrection. --Chemicalinterest (talk) 15:56, 3 December 2010 (PST)
Gotcha... in fact it is an epic book of immense importance to the church right now. I recommend you reading it or reading my review at least, because it will be long :D.--Tony 15:57, 3 December 2010 (PST)
I'll see if I can get into it. --Chemicalinterest (talk) 16:59, 3 December 2010 (PST)
cool man, take care.--Tony 12:51, 5 December 2010 (PST)

Upload details

The source and copyright status of the following image were not sufficient. The specific address where the image and its description can be found is necessary for source - and the link to the specific CC license for Copyright status.

Take a look at the following for my specific changes.

http://creationwiki.org/pool/index.php?title=File%3ACaesium_in_a_tube.jpg&action=historysubmit&diff=29679&oldid=29665

The following is perhaps a better source for high definition CC licensed element pics. We've been replacing those older pictures with images with there.

--Ashcraft - (talk) 08:50, 5 December 2010 (PST)

I guess I'll have to stick with public domain images then. Copyright licenses and citations were never two of my strong points. --Chemicalinterest (talk) 10:27, 5 December 2010 (PST)

Concerning {{reflist}}

The expression {{reflist}} is a template. It carries an optional parameter of the number of columns into which one might divide a list of references. Certain Internet browsers, like Mozilla's Firefox, allow the display of automatic tagged references in multiple columns instead of as a single column.

{{reflist}} fully implements <references/> by default, so that one may use the template everywhere, and have available an instant method of splitting the references into multiple columns when, as, and if the article expands.--TemlakosTalk 08:15, 29 January 2011 (PST)
