Hi, Welcome aboard of EoM on behalf of the editorial board. Please find here our working conditions.--Ulf Rehmann 11:37, 25 May 2012 (CEST)

I wonder, what for did you upload File:Encyclopedia EAs v10 alt versionEdit ac edit2a.docx? --Boris Tsirelson 18:25, 13 August 2012 (CEST)


The upload was an error. I am surprised the upload occured as there was an error message on my side saying it had failed.

I see. You can ask Ulf to delete it, here. --Boris Tsirelson 22:25, 13 August 2012 (CEST)
Also it could be more convenient to create your personal sandbox and use it for drafts (rather than your user page). --Boris Tsirelson 22:28, 13 August 2012 (CEST)

Sandbox and a thank you

Txs for the heads-up about the sandbox. I have found it very useful this morning. And I will contact Ulf about the misposted items.

Nice, but I see that you did not use my redlink, but instead typed in a different name. I just moved it. Now it is called User:Tgawa63/sandbox, thus it belongs to your userspace. The old name Tgawa63/sandbox belongs formally to the mainspace, and means formally "a supplement to the article on Tgawa63", which was not intended. --Boris Tsirelson 18:30, 14 August 2012 (CEST)


I have the genetic algorithm paper in the sandbox and it is complete but for 2 very important things: 1)I cannot make certain symbols appear as bold or italics for example, how to do so is my question 2)all of the formulas are coming over in TEX format with some appearing ok but others getting broken into multiple pieces so one part of the formula is on 1 line while the continuation is on the next, how to fix this. Pls excuse my inexperience and naviete in asking these questions.

Unfortunately, in many cases I really do not guess which effect do you try to produce. Anyway, I did some changes on my copy of your text here. Please look (to this end, click the blue word "here") and, if you like, copy it back into your sandbox. I did not finish this work, but probably you can continue it yourself. Do not hesitate to ask. It seems, you did not use TeX before; really? --Boris Tsirelson 22:49, 20 August 2012 (CEST)
And please sign your messages (on talk pages) by four tildas: ~~~~. --Boris Tsirelson 22:53, 20 August 2012 (CEST)
There are several problems here -- you are putting displayed math in the middle of a line, but Wiki syntax interprets 4 space indentation as being a quote. I have fixed the first to cases of this in your sandbox, please look at the source --Jjg 19:33, 24 August 2012 (CEST)

GA entry

Hello,My apologies for needing all the help you have given so far. As to Boris' question about TeX, no I have never used it. At to the other question about Wiki use, I have not done that either. Pls know I will be contacting a pro in web building who will make the necessary entries and will hopefully not need as much help as I have so far. Again my apologies for my deficiences.

Probably you need someone that knows TeX and Wiki (rather than web building). Boris Tsirelson (talk) 21:44, 18 September 2012 (CEST)
Anyway, it would help, first to look closely at existing texts and try to do as similarly as possible. Also, below I put my version of your text. Feel free to delete it if you do not need it here. At bottom, some portion is left intact; maybe try to correct it yourself similarly to the corrected top portion. Boris Tsirelson (talk) 22:31, 18 September 2012 (CEST)
Hi Boris - I have in the sandbox Tgawa63 a completed version of the article. I receivd some good help w/posting it so I would like to submit it for review. If you can tell me how to start the review process, I'll be happy to take those steps. User:Andrew Clark (talk)
Nice; now it is readable. I took the liberty to make some format changes; hope you do not object (otherwise, feel free to revert).
Some formulas look strange for me. First, "$Xi \subseteq {{A}^{l}}$"; did you mean "$\Xi \subseteq {{A}^{l}}$"? Or "$X_i \subseteq {{A}^{l}}$"? Or what? Second, "fitness function a $[\Phi \triangleq {{T}_{s}}\circ f\circ c$." Probably something is wrong, but I do not guess what should it be.
An article should have references. I tried to make one for you (taking the source from your user page) but I am not sure. Please look and correct as needed (while preserving the format).
Review process? We have nothing like that. Everyone submits articles as he/she wants; everyone may voice opinions, and make improvements; and in the worst case, the chief editor may delete an article.
When you feel the article is ready (for readers and maybe criticism and/or improvements), create it (on the mainspace). If unsure how to do it technically, just ask me (or anyone) to do it for you.
Another question. I see, now you sign "User:Andrew Clark" even though formally we have no such user. Well, I guess who are you... but I should not voice such guess. It is your prerogative, either to disclose your real name, or stay anonymous. But of course we'll be glad if you'll disclose your real name on your user page, with a link to your (impressive enough) university homepage. And then probably you'll prefer to be called "Andrew Clark" rather than "Tgawa63"; if so, just ask Ulf to rename your account.

Many txs for the laughter late in the afternoon here in Boulder, Colorado. I will edit the errors you've kindly noted and make contact w/Ulf re: my real name (btw, I work for a good-size corporation - Thomson Reuters [TR]. Hope the link to TR doesn't put folks off.) -- User:Andrew Clark

New line problem

Rather mysterious... What technical means do you use when editing this text? Which browser, which operation system? Some text editor, or only browser? Why do all "new line" bytes disappear, making it nearly unreadable? --Boris Tsirelson (talk) 00:28, 23 October 2012 (CEST)

Now again... You just edited your sandbox, and all "new line" bytes in it are exterminated. Clearly you will not be able to work here until/unless this mysterious problem will be solved. And I cannot help as long as you do not answer the question above.When answering here, please try to edit only this (last) section of this page; otherwise the whole page probably will be misformatted again. --Boris Tsirelson (talk) 23:48, 24 October 2012 (CEST)

I am using Internet Explorer 8, no text editor and the operating system is Microsoft Windows XP 2002. As to why the "new line" bytes disappear I do not know. I am editing the text same as I always have -- (talk)
Now it is better that you edit only one section.
When you edit, if you insert an empty line (to the text in the edit window), do you see the empty line (before you hit "Save page")? --Boris Tsirelson (talk) 08:37, 25 October 2012 (CEST)
