edit-warring[edit]

As a long-term editor you should know far better than to start edit-warring, as you have at 1989 Newcastle earthquake. You should know to follow WP:BRD and discuss on the article's talk page. You shouldn't simply revert to your preferred version if another editor objects to your edits. It's up to you to establish consensus for the change and, while discussion is in progress the status quo reigns. Given how clear, and widely accepted the Bold-revert-discuss cycle is, it's rather hypocritical of you to leave edit summaries like this, telling others not to do exactly what you're doing yourself. --AussieLegend () 14:28, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

Using an uninviting user-generated map when a USGS version is available is a poor decision. Tango/two. Dawnseeker2000 15:46, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

P.S. (for AussieLegend or anyoone else driving by)

Well, like I said, I was in a hurry because I was off to work. I didn't want to leave without saying something and one way to do that was to use the edit summary. I really didn't want to get into a discussion on the talk page, because there would be some never-ending take it out/leave it in back and forth battle, and I'm just not good at that. What I am good at is improving earthquake articles, and I found a rather glaring flaw in the homebrew isoseismal map in the 1989 Newcastle earthquake article. I did wind up posting to the talk page (more than 24 hours later) with a statement on why the image is not good for WP or the article, and with the same message about not wanting to go back and forth about it. I don't have the energy to do that. Next time, just save the previous page instead of using the revert button (which can come off as being rude) especially on an established editor.

P.S.S (for anyone interested in mischief on WP)

Well, I just noticed something odd about our little back and forth deal on 1989 Newcastle earthquake the other day. Was ready to dust myself off and resume my other activities here, but had a look at the edit history on that article and noticed an editor that reverted my last edit there. It looks to be a WP:SPA that was created during our little edit war (a few minutes prior to their one and only edit). I doubt we'll see any more of Editor35714 (talk · contribs). Sure doesn't smell good. Dawnseeker2000 01:15, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

Earthquake Prediction[edit]

Dawnseeker2000, I saw your Talk comment at Earthquake Prediction (EP) and, in response, I had a look at some of the earthquake articles you've been editing. I haven't looked at all of them, but those that I've seen are very nice -- for example, the Armenian Earthquake article. As you probably know, the EP article needs attention, or at least several editors (including me) believe that it needs attention. At the same time, there is also some substantial resistance from other corner to making pretty much any change of the EP article. I'm somewhat new to Wikipedia, and so I'm learning to navigate some of these issues of collaboration and disagreement. Of course, I understand that it is the content (and style) that counts, not the expertise of the editors contributing the content (and style). So, on that basis, seeing the earthquake articles on which you've been working, I wonder if you might consider devoting some energy to the EP article. Let me just say that the subject is controversial, which makes it interesting for an Wikieditor, and it is important, which makes it interesting for a Wikieditor. What do you think? Sincerely, DoctorTerrella (talk) 13:11, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

1975 Haicheng earthquake[edit]

The 1975 Haicheng earthquake figures prominently in earthquake prediction. While I understand that you might not want to weigh in on Earthquake Prediction page, your attention to the 1975 Haicheng earthquake would be appreciated. What do you think? Thanks, DoctorTerrella (talk) 13:37, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

IPCC[edit]

Hi, thx for your help. I have split the paragraph in two, as I believe Grundmanns research with Max Planck is a great achievement and the comparision of the IPCC activities with the Ozone layer problem of general interest . Serten (talk) 18:12, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Earthquake properties on Wikidata[edit]

Have you thought of submitting a proposal on Wikidata to capture some of the basic properties of earthquakes? A couple of good places to get the discussion started are: wikidata:Wikidata:WikiProject_Geology and wikidata:Wikidata:Property_proposal/Natural_science#Geology. I've never gone through the process of proposing new properties so I'd have to learn this by myself. --DarTar (talk) 02:38, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
