G'day! This is Andrew Alder's user talk page, you knew that. Welcome!
|If I left you a message on your talk page, please respond there, I am watching your talk page. That's of course unless the message at your talk page was a mere heads-up as to progress on a discussion here or on another talk page, in which case probably best to continue the discussion where it is.
I prefer to discuss issues regarding any particular article, policy etc. at its talk page, so if I'm already involved in a discussion there's no need to fork the discussion to here, and if not then a simple heads-up here with a link to the relevant talk page and section is best. Be aware of the canvassing guidelines, but if you're just asking me for advice rather than a whole list of people there should be no problem there.
Please don't censor my talk page. Just because you don't support what someone else is saying is no reason to remove it. Is it now? (You wouldn't think I had to say that, but I have learned otherwise.)On the other hand, if the edits you are removing are by banned users (or their socks), then please feel free to do it. That's not censorship, it's administrative drudgery, and I thank you for taking it on. But if there's doubt as to who the contributor really is, or if the proposed ban is not yet in force, or both, better to leave me to clean up my own page. A non-abusive heads-up on the antics of the contributor, in reply to what they have said or done here, is always appreciated. TIA!

List of current IPL team rosters listed at Redirects for discussion
An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect List of current IPL team rosters. Since you had some involvement with the List of current IPL team rosters redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion (if you have not already done so).
As I noticed you on the talk page, please check this out and let me know what you think.
2012 Yale University systematic review and Harmonization
"The collective LCA literature indicates that life cycle GHG emissions from nuclear power are only a fraction of traditional fossil sources and comparable to renewable technologies."
It went on to note that for the most common category of reactors, the Light water reactor:
The study noted that differences between emissions scenarios were:
"The electric system was dominated by nuclear (or renewables) and a system dominated by coal can result in a fairly large ranging (from 4 to 22 g CO2-eq/kWh) compared to (30 to 110 g CO2-eq/kWh), respectively."
The study predicted that depending on a number of variables, including how carbon intensive the electricity supply was in the future, and the quality of Uranium ore:
"median life cycle GHG emissions could be 9 to 110 g CO2-eq/kWh by 2050."

Road Case/Flight case merge
Agreed. I think that someone looking for encyclopaedic information on this topic would not differentiate between a flight or road case and would want all the information available in one article. Indeed, it would make Wikipedia more concise to merge. A visitor may not know there's any difference anyway, and not look for the other article at all.
In Reply to Your Question
Sorry about the late reply. I'm not sure what the deal is on the CAPTCHA. Maybe you should email either firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com (they both do a lot of "newbie" support). Let me know what the results are. Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by WritingEnthusiast14 (talk • contribs)
- Thanks for the reply. I couldn't find any way of contacting support there without signing in, which is exactly what I was unable to do! But I just tried it again and it seems to work now. I suspect it has been fixed. Andrewa (talk) 11:22, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
Problems with Edit Conflicts
- You shouldn't need to remove duplicate templates.
- But AFAIK there's no way to completely prevent edit conflicts, other than by temporarily blocking every other user. (;->
- When I get an edit conflict I generally copy and paste my new text from the edit box to a text file on my own Windows desktop just for safety, and then open the page history in a new tab to see exactly what is going on. Often it's best to just let the other user finish what they're doing and then redo my own contribution from scratch. I often end up with a better considered result by this means, so I've turned the annoyance to a profit.
- But they can be very annoying, particularly if you've done many small changes which can't be easily copied and so all that typing is irrecoverable. I always promise myself at that stage that I'll never be exposed in that way again... haven't kept the promise so far. Andrewa (talk) 11:21, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
Some Help on Content Dispute
An anon is making some rather drastic content removals to After Earth. The IP is 220.127.116.11. I reverted the removals since I thought it was unnecessary, but the anon just went on to remove even more content. Any advice on what to do? — Preceding unsigned comment added by WritingEnthusiast14 (talk • contribs) 16:08, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
- First thing is discuss it with them. Politely and attempting to be constructive of course. This should probably be on the article talk page, Talk:After Earth#Plot section seems the place, or if you feel it's more a behavioural issue than a content issue, on their user talk page... yes, IPs have them too.
- But before doing that have a look at some similar articles... do they have a point? Was the plot section overly long?
