Thanks for rearranging my text.

I think that just as relationships come in kit form and you have to put them together yourselves, we have to formulate our own standards for polite wiki behavior. Fortunately, some projects, such as Wikipedia have had some experience in that regard, so we can learn from them.

As I often do, I have escalated the concerns you expressed into an addition to an article page: How to use a wiki. Please revise that article whenever you can improve it.

Do you want to reveal any more about yourself here? Are you already notified when someone changes your Talk: page? Nitpicker 23:37, 15 December 2006 (EST)

I do have a "watch" set on this page. And for now I will be mildly mysterious, but hardly evasive. ;o) - Docdtv 15:02, 16 December 2006 (EST)

test pattern was used

I mainly used a zone plate. (linked from my user page) My test pattern shows that there is no sharp cut-off that lets us point to one single number as the effective resolution. The worst case is 400x300, and the best case is 800x600. The practical truth is more like 693x520, which happens to be the size of a conventional display with the same number of green display elements. Developers may be best off imagining that their app is scaled down by a factor of two and then scaled back up prior to display. Thin lines running from lower-left to upper-right tend to show strong colorful artifacts; you get something more like 400x300 when this is an issue. Fonts and sharp edges can trigger the problem.

The display also appears to have low saturation and a color shift. I think it's more of a hue shift, but it could be whitepoint. Things are shifted toward orange. Red is a bit washed out. Green is somewhat yellow, like neon paint. Blue is too bright. Cyan is baby-blue. Yellow is washed out and maybe a bit orange. Magenta is a bit bluish.

It has noticable diagonal stripes. This doesn't really look bad. It's just a bit weird, like the image being printed on denim.
