Thanks for giving more detailed feedback on the shortcomings for Bjarne Stugu's biography

Dear @Polyamorph:, your swift review of the new Wikipedia entry is highly appreciated. I hope i shall be able to complete the article with what you think is missing. Thanks for sharing some more details of what you would like to see and I will try to fix it accordingly.

Regards Bibliophilen (talk)

Hello @Bibliophilen:. The article needs more secondary sources to demonstrate that the person satisfies our notability criteria, see WP:BIO. Please add sources that are independent of the subject. Polyamorph (talk) 08:48, 28 November 2021 (UTC)

Ericson-Ericson Lorentz-Lorenz correction

Dear @Polyamorph:,Ericson-Ericson Lorentz-Lorenz correction is a phenomenon that is not so easy to explain in a few lines in general terms—still it is a very important effect in nuclear physics. This is clearly refelected in literature. I will sit down with some professors, specialized in the field. next week to improve the current text and hopefully meet your expectations.

@Bibliophilen: I understand, I felt more detail is needed to clarify its importance and notability in the wider field of particle physics. Polyamorph (talk) 09:32, 28 November 2021 (UTC)
Dear @Polyamorph,
the effect is well-known and has had impact:
The notability is apparent, see Ref.  2, which is the book Pions and nuclei, an invited monograph in  the prestigious Clarendon Press, an imprint of Oxford University Press,  International Series of Monographs on Physics, cited nearly 2000 times. The book has also been translated into Russian. As you know this monograph series is considered "gold standard".  
The EELL effect itself has been referred to about 800 times elsewhere and occurs prominently in different contexts in four of the chapters of the monograph discussed above.
Here follows a description of the impact of the monograph series:
“The Oxford University Press  International Series of Monographs on Physics has been one of the pre-eminent series in the subject since its foundation in 1930 under the editorship of Fowler and Kapitza. It began with the famous books by Dirac and by Van Vleck, and went on to publish the works of many of the century's great physicists. “
The notability is apparent from many annual and other reviews and  the effect has also found its place in text books.
It is noteworthy that quarks are not much relevant for this long wave length effect without sensitivity to short ranged physics on the nuclear scale. Although it is connected to particle physics in the chiral limit it is much more notable in many-body and nuclear physics.
I appreciate that this is much of "Oxford University Press blurb", but hope this is sufficient to make you consider to remove the tag:

Astley's Ampitheatre

Now added to the redirects for deletion due to the misspelling - 'h' missing. Financefactz (talk) 16:13, 2 December 2021 (UTC)


I've seen that you reverted my edits, just a small thank you. I did not know that there was a redirect of the same name, article I meant to move was deleted, which re-directed it to the original article.--Pink Saffron (talk) 21:48, 2 December 2021 (UTC)

A Dobos torte for you!

Dobos cake (Gerbeaud Confectionery Budapest Hungary).jpg 7&6=thirteen () has given you a Dobos torte to enjoy! Seven layers of fun because you deserve it.

To give a Dobos torte and spread the WikiLove, just place {{subst:Dobos Torte}} on someone else's talkpage, whether it be someone you have had disagreements with in the past or a good friend.

another one? I've only just finished the first 7 layers. Maybe I'll leave a layer, so it's 7&6. Polyamorph (talk) 22:25, 6 December 2021 (UTC)

Page Moves

Hello, Polyamorph,

If you are moving a page that has redirects to it, please leave a redirect from the old page title to the new one. This happened early this morning after all of the tennis page moves and if another admin, Explicit, hadn't changed each page, AnomieBOT would have deleted all of those broken redirects. If you leave a redirect from the old to new page name, then one of our other bots will change the redirects to point to the new location. This is especially true if you are correcting for a bad move page move...unfortunately, bots immediately change redirects to point to the new, bad title, but they only correct them back to the better title if you leave a redirect in its place, from the bad title to the better one.

Just something for all page movers to think about when considering whether to leave a redirect during a page move. Thank you. Liz Read! Talk! 20:33, 7 December 2021 (UTC)

Oh! Thanks for letting me know. Those pesky bots being helpful. Polyamorph (talk) 21:20, 7 December 2021 (UTC)

Merry Christmas

Xmastreenewyork06.jpg Merry Christmas, Polyamorph!
Or Season's Greetings or Happy Winter Solstice! As the year winds to a close, I would like to take a moment to recognize your hard work and offer heartfelt gratitude for all you do for Wikipedia. May this Holiday Season bring you nothing but joy, health and prosperity. Onel5969 TT me 23:02, 21 December 2021 (UTC)

Just a heads up, you marked this as reviewed, but it's a definite cut and paste move. I've reverted it, but thought you'd like to know. Onel5969 TT me 13:41, 23 December 2021 (UTC)

Thanks, not sure how I missed that. Polyamorph (talk) 13:51, 23 December 2021 (UTC)

Merry Christmas!

Hi Polyamorph! Merry Christmas to you too. I'm not good with templates, so all I have to offer is this hand-written note. I thank you for your help too, and for being so kind to me back when I was just an IP. If not for you, I'd probably had never created this account in the first place. I hope your holiday will be wonderful, and may the new year bring good fortune and joy. (And maybe a little less pandemic.) To you and yours. Zaereth (talk) 19:33, 23 December 2021 (UTC)

Thanks Zaereth. I was ill over Christmas with flu (not covid, still managed to escape that so far!). So the festivities kind of just went by and I missed most of it! Feeling much better now. Its nice to know I helped you decide to create an account 14 years ago which can't have been too long after I'd created my own. Here's to another year! Best wishes Polyamorph (talk) 20:40, 31 December 2021 (UTC)
Sorry to hear that, but I'm glad you're feeling better. It's bad enough being sick, but always seems worse to have to deal with it over the holidays. I had Covid back in 2018; back before it was even popular. Back when it was just called SARS. That's what I spent Christmas doing that year, and I didn't fully recover until February.
