Hi, thanks for contributing to the wiki. I noticed you are making many words on the pages into links. The current notability guidelines, although far from well-articulated, state that wiki shouldn't duplicate content present elsewhere. Wiki is primarily for organizing the material discussed on the blog, and describing the concepts in the context of the blog, where linking to other sources directly would complicate matters or lose the context. --Vladimir Nesov 19:26, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

Also see article naming convention. --Vladimir Nesov 19:37, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

Please slow down. Don't add articles on obscure concepts, don't do original (to the blog) research. Even the probably valid references to the literature have to be removed because of epistemic hygiene if they can't be readily verified to be relevant. This wiki is for organizing the blog posts and concepts discussed in them. Case in point (I'll get to removing it once I review the backlog, a couple of weeks now): Tensegrity. --Vladimir Nesov 17:56, 13 October 2009 (UTC)
