August 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to The Right Honourable may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "()"s. If you have, don't worry, just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • again in the Lords Hansard. HL Deb 17 March 2005 vol 670 cc1441-76. Retrieved 30-03-2013)]</ref>) are no longer used, at least in the Commons.

F-35 Article Edit[edit]

I have restored a little of the language you removed on July eleventh regarding the recent engine fire in the F-35A. It's a verifiable fact that the fire occurred at the start of what was a training flight for F-35 aircrew - the original reference I supplied makes this clear. It's a pertinent, relevant fact given that so many "production" models of this aircraft have already been purchased from Lockheed Martin, and pilots and maintenance crews are training for its deployment despite the fact that no models of this aircraft have yet established achievement of all of its design parameters. It needs to be clear that this fire occurred on a training flight - in a plane that had already been delivered to the US Air Force ostensibly as fit for service - as opposed to a testing and development flight.

Furthermore for anyone to state - so shortly after the Class A incident was investigated - that flying was expected to resume a couple of days later clearly represents an assumption, not an honest "belief" (do beliefs have any place in the analysis of technology?) nor an informed take on the facts - I think the fact that, as I write more than two weeks later, the grounding is ongoing, makes this clear.

Otherwise I have no problem with your edit beyond the fact that it leaves vague the date of the grounding. BLZebubba (talk) 17:26, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

Minor Barnstar.png The Minor Barnstar
Thank you for your recent edits to Cold fusion and Planck units. Nobody ever gave me a barnstar, which is now why I edit anonymously. "Minor" edits that are good deserve recognition and appreciation. (talk) 17:00, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for December 26[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited John Lowe (musician), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Would I Lie To You?. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
