Someone had created this page on Wikipedia and it appears to be up for deletion:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahad%27s_Constant

I'm actually curious as to who created the article so soon. Was it anybody from this forum I wonder? I was hoping it could have waited until more reliable sources became available.

Thank you Dick, I really appreciate it Very Happy .

Editing Wikipedia is really a piece of cake. You go to the discussion page:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Ahad%27s_Constant

Click on the tab where it says "Edit this page" at the top. Then right at the bottom, below the last person's comment on a new line, simply type in *'''Keep''': (followed by your comment/reasons)

Then just click on the tab "Save page", and you're all set.

Abdul,

I went to the site and added my "Keep," but I didn't sign in. Is that necessary? Do I need to open an account?

I added my keep. Reason: It is a sound concept.

I see that my post now looks like the others. And the "Keeps" have caught up with the "Deletes".

Keep them coming everyone. It's easy!

I may sound stupid but I don't know how to vote on Wiki. It is one site, amongst many, that needs to be made more user friendly.

Thank you so much Brew, Don, DK, Carol and Zada, those are such great comments too.

I don't buy that "this is not about the number of votes, but about the reasons". The last AFD they had on me (where Shelagh was present) was decided in the end on "numerical consensus" of votes, meaning there were fewer "keeps" balanced against a greater number of "deletes".

So the aim should be to have more keeps and fewer deletes in this debate.

As for notability, the following is a list of the many real world publications that have cited the "Ahad's Sphere" and "Ahad's constant":

The Sky This Week (Download the refereed paper here), East of England Creative News (Jan-Mar 2009 edition, page 4) ,Wikipedia.Org (Talk: "List of scientific laws named after people"), The Mathaba News Network (February 1st, 2007),The Knowhere Guide, The American Chronicle, First Ark to Alpha Centauri 2 (US novel published Baltimore, Maryland, 2006), Exiledwriters.co.uk, IslamOnline.Net, Muslim Ontario, Hi Pakistan, The Daily Star, Writewords.org.uk, Whosreadit.Com, Journal of British Astronomical Association (Letter in Vol 115(5), Oct 2005), First Ark to Alpha Centauri (US novel published Baltimore, Maryland, 2005), The Muslim Writers Society (July 30th, 2005), Muktadara.Net (Page 71 - "Notable Scientists"), The Luton Herald & Post (August 4th, 2005, p. 29), the Janomot (London: Sep 30-Oct 06, 2005, p. 19) and Bangla Mirror newspapers.

Abdul, check in on the "Worst-Case Scenario" thread. We need some astronomical insight. (X- level solar flares and CME's)

Thank you Brenda and AW, I really appreciate your votes.

The discussion will stay open for another couple of days. If you think of anything more to add that would support, I hope you'll revisit the page and edit it again.

If you haven't browsed my paper already, here it is again:

This has "real world" tangible uses with tangible results. Unlike, for example, this number crunching mathematical stub:
