Disambiguation link notification for July 28[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited The Story of Tam and Cam, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Queen. 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.

alterations made earlier[edit]

Hi DSCrowned

How do I make the alterations that I made earlier not be a test and stand?

Last question from John lansing by the way, Thanks

Tetraethyllead edit reversal[edit]

The current version of the article for Tetraethyllead falsely claims that automotive leaded gasoline only permitted 0.1 grams per gallon of lead. The reference cited in support of this 0.1 gram per gallon figure says nothing about the lead content of leaded automotive gasoline at all. In fact, according to the EPA's 1971 Federal Register notice announcing its intent to begin phasing out lead in gasoline, leaded automotive gasoline contained an average of 2.5 grams per gallon. I attempted to correct this clear factual inaccuracy and added a citation to the relevant Federal Register notice containing the correct value.

In addition to the Federal Register notice I cited, the International Journal of Occupational and Environmental Health article currently listed as reference 11 in the article lays out the history of the U.S. leaded gasoline phaseout on page 394. It states that "By 1985, 40% of all gasoline sold was still leaded, but in July of that year, the refinery pool standard of 1.1 grams per gallon dropped to 0.5, then dropped further to 0.1 grams per gallon on January 1, 1986. Over all, the 1986 standard represented a drop of more than 98% in the lead content of U.S. gasoline from 1970 to 1986." In other words, the 0.1 grams per gallon figure stated in the current article was not a limit on the lead in leaded gasoline. Rather it was a "refinery pool standard." an average of the lead content across all fuel sold by a refinery, averaging both the leaded and unleaded fuel. Refineries did not meet this limit by selling leaded fuel with only 0.1 gram of lead (which would have been pointless from an anti-knock standpoint). Rather, they met the limit by increasing the amount of unleaded gas they sold and decreasing the amount of leaded gas they sold.

The claim that leaded automotive gasoline contained only 0.1 grams per gallon of lead or that 100LL avgas contains "far more" lead than leaded automotive gasoline is unsourced, based upon an apparent misreading of sources such as the IJOEH article, and false. If the Tetraethyllead article is going to compare avgas lead levels with leaded automotive gas levels, it should do so accurately. That was the purpose of my edit.

You reversed this edit "because it did not appear constructive." Needless to say, I disagree. Replacing falsehoods with accurate and authoritatively sourced facts seems to me like the most valuable and constructive thing that an editor can do. But perhaps my edit was somehow confusing. Can you provide some guidance as to how I can make an edit that fixes this factual inaccuracy, but will not be reversed? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ranapier (talkcontribs) 07:20, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

User page semi'd for a month[edit]

I've semi'd your user page, based on your request earlier at RPPP. --Floquenbeam (talk) 21:20, 9 October 2014 (UTC)

And your talk page too. --Floquenbeam (talk) 21:58, 9 October 2014 (UTC)

Main page sandbox[edit]

I've copied your redesign efforts to User:DSCrowned/Main Page sandbox - please use that, not the main Main Page sandbox for your redesign experiments. Thanks. The idea is that if I need to tweak something on the main page, as I have done on a couple of occasions, I can use the Main Page sandbox for that, without worrying whether the sandbox has been used for someone's redesign/experimental purposes and so contains unapproved modifications that might accidentally get copied across to the main page. BencherliteTalk 12:02, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

Ok! If the main page sandbox is used for! Thanks anyway! DSCrowned(Talk) 12:55, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

Weird[edit]

Yeah, I asked myself that too. I think it's because you created the page with the original CSD notice about the page User:FashionFiles. -- Rrburke (talk) 21:30, 1 November 2014 (UTC)

@Rrburke: Yeah, I did, check that page history. I created the page to notify the user about the CSD of his/her user page. Now... DSCrowned(Talk) 21:32, 1 November 2014 (UTC)

Engaging with discussions[edit]

You posted a serious accusation at the admin noticeboard (permalink) but I have not seen any acknowledgment about the direction the discussion has taken. Have you read it? Johnuniq (talk) 03:23, 23 November 2014 (UTC)

We need your opinion[edit]

Hi, I was thinking that maybe we need your thoughts here, seeming you started the discussion. R2me2
