Table tests[edit]

Might I suggest playing with the tables somewhere besides the article talk page? User:DavidP02/Sandbox would be an ideal place; it makes it difficult to read the Talk:Homebrewing page history if it is full of a lot of test edits. ptkfgs 22:38, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

Okay DavidP02 22:41, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

Homebrewing[edit]

Great work with the homebrewing article! Glad to see you've decided to stay :-) ptkfgs 00:12, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

Thanks! I wish I knew how to do these private message thingies. ;-) DavidP02 00:15, 13 October 2006 (UTC)
Click on a user's name (e.g. Ptkfgs) and you'll be taken to that user's page. At the top, there will be a tab labeled "discussion". It's basically the same as the talk page for an article, but the user will be notified of new messages. A lot of users also put a link to the talk page in their signatures, for example, the "fgs" in my signature links to User talk:Ptkfgs. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you need any help with the Wikipedia software. ptkfgs 00:27, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

Text boxes[edit]

Can you point to an example of this somewhere? I'm not sure what you mean. ptkfgs 23:07, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

hmmm. we have templates like {{quotation}} that do this, but generally, if text is part of the article (i.e., it's wikipedia's text, not a quotation), it's just left in the article without any extra formatting. there is more information in the wikipedia manual of style. ptkfgs 18:56, 14 October 2006 (UTC)

homebrewing[edit]

Yes, I see what you mean. You can delete that section if it does not contain anything new. (PS: Type four tildes at the end of your message (~~~~) to sign your name) — goethean 22:57, 16 October 2006 (UTC)

reply[edit]

  1. Unfortunately, I've never uploaded a picture and am unclear on the process. I'll have to refer you to Wikipedia:Uploading_images.
  2. The brewing forum that I use is http://www.brewery.org/. Their photo gallery is at http://hbd.org/discus/messages/366/366.html?1158587546.
  3. I'm not sure exactly what you mean by 'cask'. You mean with a beer engine? That is extremely rare among homeberwers. I agree that most homebrewers cornie keg and that the article should reflect this.
  4. Yes, Wikipedia is not for how-to manuals and text that can be described as such can be deleted. — goethean 14:12, 17 October 2006 (UTC)

Loudspeaker peer review request[edit]

I've requested the article Loudspeaker to have peer review. I noticed it was pretty good and might deserve a GA status. If you can take a look at it too and help evaluate and improve it's quality, that would be great. The peer review tag can be found on the article's talk page. --Davidkazuhiro 10:34, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
