Return to the user page of "Scott".

Howdy. I'm here relatively often, but if it's urgent, please pop by my Wikipedia user talk page. Thanks! — Scott


I've seen you about quite recently, and I never had a chance to say hi before. Obviously, I can't say hi at the redirect. :) Ottava Rima (talk) 22:36, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

Hello! Nice to meet you. It looks like we have a similar outlook on the way Commons ought to work. — Scott talk 08:43, 19 June 2013 (UTC)


Completely out of topic question: a "decade" in english is a period of 10 years, ie a "décennie" in french. "décade", in french, means a period of ten days. Is there a word in english that means "period of 10 days". Asavaa (talk) 13:50, 7 July 2013 (UTC)

Hello! I don't believe there is; we have "fortnight" for a period of two weeks, that is to say 14 days, but not a word for 10. Perhaps your useful word is a legacy of the calendrier républicain français? :) — Scott talk 14:01, 7 July 2013 (UTC)
Yes it is: there were three décades' in a month. I reckon the word is probably not very usefull, although I know it from the book Ten Days' Wonder, that became La Décade prodigieuse in french. Asavaa (talk) 14:12, 7 July 2013 (UTC)

Lesson learned - next time, upload an image first to Flickr, have it licensed that way, post it on Wiki, then terminate the account like so many others. Ottava Rima (talk) 17:25, 14 July 2013 (UTC)

The joys of a trivially-gamed system, hey? I'm never going to resort to that, but boy it would be easy to do. — Scott talk 18:26, 14 July 2013 (UTC)
I've fought to have such things prevented for 4 years and Wiki has gone the opposite way. Ottava Rima (talk) 19:35, 14 July 2013 (UTC)


If they signed [1], then they agreed to have their IRC quotes made public. FYI. Ottava Rima (talk) 14:26, 18 July 2013 (UTC)
