Image:AmateurRadioAntenna.JPG, inaccuracy in description[edit]

Your statement:"These kind of antenna's are today outdated and are slowly being replaced by digital stations working via satellite (Orbiting Satellite Carrying Amateur Radio);" is not quite true.

There are very few radio amateurs are involved in satellite communications, far less than those involved in HF or VHF terrestrial communications.

Most amateur radio activity is analog SSB or CW. In fact the most popular digital mode is Morse code (CW), which is usually sent by hand.

HF antennas are far from outdated. There are a few innovations being made in the field of HF antennas, and many HF antennas are in fact larger versions of VHF antennas. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Rjairam (talkcontribs) 19:52, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image (Image:XOF.JPG)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:XOF.JPG. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BetacommandBot 00:09, 14 May 2007 (UTC)

Spam in Guardium[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Guardium, by DarkAudit, another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Guardium is blatant advertising for a company, product, group, service or person that would require a substantial rewrite in order to become an encyclopedia article.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Guardium, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Please note, this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion, it did not nominate Guardium itself. Feel free to leave a message on the bot operator's talk page if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot. --Android Mouse Bot 2 21:14, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

Just wanted to let you know that I'm having some connectivity issues this week, and dig in again on the oil page changes that you're interested in when I surface again. Waitak 13:30, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

-->OK, I'll hold off on uploading the changes unto the main wikipedia articles untill you get back.

--> I'm sorry but due to the long delay (almost 3/4 of a month have already passed), I already altered the oil pages. I'm sorry if I'm unpatient but I can no longer let those that may benefit from this (Penan) wait any longer. Perhaps silly because my post wont make that much difference but still, even if it accounts for just something i can no longer hold off.

Ecovillages, Eco municipalities, Sustainable neighbourhoods...[edit]

Hey KVDP, I appreciate your initiative in getting some discussion going about these various terms. However, I was dismayed to see that you had already begun to make some of the moves:" Eco municipalities" and "Ecovillage" --> "Sustainable neighbourhood." I note the following:

  • The terms "Ecovillage" and "Eco-municipality" are both very well-defined terms, whereas "Sustainable neighbourhood" is not.
  • There are ecovillages now on all continents and a Global Ecovillage Network[1].
  • "Ecovillage" gets 287,000 Google hits; sustainable neighbourhood only 9,500.

Thus, I've restored the "Ecovillage" article and have undone your redirect of "Eco municipalities." The discussion at Talk:Sustainable city is an interesting one, and clearly we need to rationalize what we are going to do with "Eco municipalities," "Eco-town," "Ecopolis" and "Eco-city." Let's not forget that editorial decisions are made by consensus. Sunray (talk) 01:05, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

The Longevity Diet[edit]

Nuvola apps important yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article The Longevity Diet, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. If you agree with the deletion of the article, and you are the only person who has made substantial edits to the page, please add {{db-author}} to the top of The Longevity Diet. Gwernol 09:51, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

As noted, you have 5 days to improve the article. This should be enough time to provide independent, published sources and to rewrite the text to avoid it sounding like an advert for this particular diet. Best, Gwernol 09:58, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

RE:List of most usable [sic] knots[edit]

I'm afraid this violates WP:NPOV. I'm afraid it's not up to Wikipedia to tell people what the most useable (and check your spelling) of anything is. I could write articles on what the most useable fridges, computers etc. and they would get deleted in an instant. I suggest you incorporate the information into knots while retaining NPOV.

Speedy deletion of Body therapy[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Body therapy requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an article with no content whatsoever, or whose contents consist only of external links, "See also" section, book reference, category tag, template tag, interwiki link, rephrasing of the title, or an attempt to contact the subject of the article.

Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you.

Edits to Talk:Appropriate technology[edit]

Hi,

Recently you've added a number of suggestions to the Talk:Appropriate technology page which seem to discuss the subject itself, rather than how to edit the article. The comments made in this set of revisions in particular don't appear to discuss editing the article at all - rather, they speculate about different applications of appropriate technology. Per WP:FORUM, this isn't really what our talk pages are for. Please keep that in mind, as off-topic content may be removed from talk pages. Thanks.

status[edit]

As reviewing admin, I in any case declined the Speedy, because it was not "a very short article lacking context to establish the subject of the article". If anyone wishes to have it deleted they will need to go to AfD, but it is likely that someone will. We have many articles "Comparison of ...", so that is not a reason for deletion. The basic idea for these pages is that the purpose is not to help someone choose, but to provide encyclopedic information as an overview of the subject. Take a look at some of the similar ones.

What's the plan on air coolers and such?[edit]

You seem to be in the middle of a big and somewhat controversial re-org. Can you say where the proposal is for this, so we can review and comment? Dicklyon (talk) 17:04, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

KVDP, are you done with your move project? There is material you bulk-moved with the air coolers section that should go back over to the absorption refrigeration section.... like the paragraphs and image specifically describing absorption refrigerators. If you are done, I will move the block back myself. DMahalko (talk) 13:11, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
How can he be done? He hasn't even pointed out a plan/proposal yet. Dicklyon (talk) 17:53, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
Ok, for the plan: if we think logically about it, coolers and heaters are best categorised by type (eg solid, gas or liquid coolers/heaters; to the State of matter). An air cooler is a type of gas cooler. However, as they are so widespread still require their own article. The cooler operating by air (now mentioned under "air cooling) is basically a solid cooler. Indeed, in many dictionaries (including Merriam Webster, ...) the incorrect term where the cooling susbstance is used before ...cooler is often mentioned; yielding terms as air cooler, ... for solid matter coolers. However as this is an encyclopedia, we must use a method which works for all our articles.

Thus the solution is simple;

  • move the now present air cooling article to solid matter cooler
  • reinstate my info for air cooler
  • keep the absorption air cooler article (as this type of cooler is very needed to explain air coolers often used in air conditioners, ...) As for the -refridgerator article; I was under the impression that the cooling cycle works both for the absorption air cooler and the refrigeratorn, no ? Keep as is. The absorption refrigerator simply describes the cooler with extra casing.

KVDP (talk) 07:54, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

You should mention the plan at the talk pages of affected articles. I'm pretty sure that that it won't fly at air cooling, where people interested in air cooling as discussed there aren't going to care much about your plans for what to do about cooling air.

Hi! When proposing a page move, please remember to substitute the template – use {{subst:move}}, not {{move}}. Also, remember to sign your move rationale with ~~~~ so that the bot can add it under the correct date at Wikipedia:Requested moves. Thanks. Jafeluv (talk) 10:27, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

  • Hi KVDP. I've just now removed the entry from Talk:Bush airplane. I'm assuming that you used the {{move}} template or... something. Regardless, it was a mess, so if you really feel that the article should be moved then you should redo the movereq correctly (Note however that I don't see that movereq going anywhere. It's not up to me obviously, but I doubt anyone will support it).
    V = I * R (talk) 20:32, 20 August 2009 (UTC)
    • (To Ω): If you see a badly formatted move request, just go ahead and fix it (the most common problems are missing "subst:" and missing signature). You don't have to agree with the request to fix it – you can oppose right after if you want. But please don't remove malformed requests just because you disagree with them. Jafeluv (talk) 12:00, 21 August 2009 (UTC)
      • I did actually try. After getting the edit screen though, I was just faced with... a mess. Essentially needing to delete it in order to recreate it anyway, I just decided to delete it and leave a message here instead. That was kind of lazy, I know, but to be honest while it doesn't actually bother me to do so I just don't see the point of going through the process on this one.
        V = I * R (talk) 22:14, 21 August 2009 (UTC)
  • (To KVDP): Please remember to leave a signed comment after the {{subst:move}} tag to explain why you want the page to be moved. I've added a signature at Talk:Bush airplane, so that the bot can correctly parse the date, but it's still missing an explanation why you want the page to be moved. The procedure is explained here. If you have any problems, don't hesitate to ask on my talk page. Thanks, Jafeluv (talk) 12:00, 21 August 2009 (UTC)


Proposed deletion of Future aircraft developments‎[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Future aircraft developments‎ has been proposed for deletion. The proposed-deletion notice added to the article should explain why.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the Proposed Deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The Speedy Deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and Articles for Deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. - Ahunt (talk) 15:04, 22 September 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for your comment - we had some discussion about this over at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Aircraft#Future_aircraft_developments and my aim on WP:PRODing it was to get it either fixed, redirected or deleted, since it isn't of much value as it is! - Ahunt (talk) 13:01, 23 September 2009 (UTC)
I will work on it but could you give some pointers on how I should alter it ? If I decide to move it into the suggested Aircraft design article, I'll need some other info I could use to inmediatelly have a bit of "weight" for the article. Alternatively, I'm also open for other suggestions.

KVDP (talk) 13:11, 23 September 2009 (UTC)

To be honest the topic is so broad that I can't think of a way of making it into a useful article, other than redirecting it somewhere. - Ahunt (talk) 14:37, 24 September 2009 (UTC)
Hi KVDP, I noticed that you copy and pasted the content from this article into the aircraft design article. I do not think that is a solution to the root problem; the problem being that the list is a selective, incomplete list that briefly covers many random topics with little rhyme or reason. There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Aircraft#Future_aircraft_developments, and I think it would be more constructive to discuss this there before any action is taken. Thanks, -SidewinderX (talk) 19:01, 24 September 2009 (UTC)

Solar water heating image[edit]

Hi, I've taken a look at your image request, and now I have a few questions:

  • How exactly is the circuit to the water heater tied in? Shouldn't the water heater be taking partially heated water from the solar or other system, heating it to the required temperature, and feeding the appliances?
  • Seeing as we have a municipal water inlet shown, shouldn't the water outlets from the appliances also be shown going to drain?

Human energy harvesting‎[edit]

The article you created Human energy harvesting from Energy harvesting contains a lot of non-human energy harvesting. It was easier to follow as it was before. A redirect from Human energy harvesting to Energy harvesting would be desirable unless you want to edit both pages. Thanks for understanding. --141.219.80.55 (talk) 06:21, 5 October 2009 (UTC)

Exactly what in the article is non-human energy harvesting ? Allot of subdivisions are made (eg kinetic energy, ...) but they are all generated by a human.

DO NOT do this again. All you did was delete 99% of the information from Energy harvesting and paste it into your newly created article. Either use the move tab at the top of the page, ask an administrator to help, or discuss it at WP:RfD. Your move was very dubious and could be mistaken for vandalism by some editors.

Deletion and transwikiing[edit]

Hi KVDP - I commented on the deletion debates for Alternative ICE fuel generator & ICE fuel conversion. Unfortunately I don't think they meet Wikipedia's criteria in their present state. It's essential to remember that the importance of a topic is not the criteria that Wikipedia uses for inclusion (otherwise it would be bogged down in never-ending debates about what is important). If I haven't mentioned it already, see Appropedia:Project:Appropedia is different from Wikipedia.

If you want to develop these pages at Appropedia (which is probably the best idea) then the best option is exporting the pages with their history, via Special:Export. I've done this and saved the XML file. Then when imported to another wiki, the contributors can still be seen, since the original page on Wikipedia won't be accessible. An admin can import the page to Appropedia, so let me know and I'll do this if you want. --Chriswaterguy talk 02:32, 10 November 2009 (UTC)

Problems with diagram.[edit]

Hi. We're having difficulty with your diagram File:Tram and train undercarriage.png. (Please see the related discussion at Talk:Rail tracks#"Tram and train undercarriage" image.)

The image is still present at Difference between train and tram rails, but I have removed it from the other three locations. I have difficulty understanding what the image is showing me. It looks like the blue parts are the bogie frames and axleboxes, and the brown parts are the wheels, curiously missing the axle. The effect is that the top image shows the train sitting between the rails. If I ignore the colouring, and the top half of the brown bit, I can see that the blue and brown when combined make up the profile of the tyre and flange plus the axle. I'm sure you have put much care into your diagram, but I don't think it's quite there yet.

Incidentally, after you have adjusted the drawing, please do not use it to replace actual photos of rail profiles. These are also important.

Cheers -- EdJogg (talk) 13:31, 28 April 2010 (UTC)

Hey EdJogg
I'm no train/tram expert, and the images I mentioned are all that I found on the undercarriages. Tell me what to change and I'll unput the changes in next version. Regarding the replacement of actual photo's, I only removed one photo, which I think the image I made also replaced more or less. I removed it primarily to have a better lay-out (became a bit screwed up with so many images).
KVDP (talk) 17:11, 28 April 2010 (UTC)
At your suggestion I have rearranged the images at tramway track. It really needs more text before it can cope with any more images (which is why I moved some of the existing ones to a gallery). I felt that the removed image was rather significant to the article, so I apologise if I over-reacted.
Regarding your diagram, I'm sorry but I really cannot help you. The other diagram (see the talk page discussion above) clearly shows the difference in wheel and rail profile -- and the reason for a different flange shape -- between grooved and conventional rail. I don't understand what your diagram was trying to show beyond this. As you say you are not a train/tram expert, I would suggest you ask for assistance either at Talk:Rail tracks or at WikiProject Trains where someone with more expertise may be able to help you.
Cheers -- EdJogg (talk) 20:16, 28 April 2010 (UTC)
No problem. I made the schematic to show how the carriage stands upon the rail (wasn't sure in the beginning whether wheels were on the inner or outer side, or both, whether there are wheels within the rail itself (ie with train rails), and how the rail profile itself (of the tram rail) was. In addition, I needed a better image for some derivate images (will be uploaded soon). Trough cross-comparison of the images noted in the description, the image is what I came up with.

KVDP (talk) 08:17, 29 April 2010 (UTC)

Finished first derivate image: File:Tram_and_train_rail_in_trench.png ; when I make a better image I'll update these derivates too.

Clivus Multrum diagrams[edit]

Hi.

I just vectorised your two Clivus multrum illustrations (1, 2) and was wondering if you could take a look at them to make sure I hadn't missed/missinterpreted any details. Cheers /Lokal_Profil 03:01, 1 May 2010 (UTC)

Hey Lokal Profil, The images are real good; the only comment I can give is that the ventilation pipe doesn't seem to completely hook up to the pipe to the outside; actually there shouldn't be 2 pipes at all, simply 1 smooth line (1 pipe). The outside pipe also seems to have a slightly different diameter, both pipes need to be equally big. The problem occurs in both images you made. It seems that my original images also had this flaw, perhaps this is caused due the image clean-up I did a while ago; I uploaded a better version, but I probably removed some color between the pipes aswell, giving the impression now that it are 2 pipes, which they are not. KVDP (talk) 14:28, 1 May 2010 (UTC)

Is the new version of File:Clivus Multrum Composting toilet.svg better? (please ignore the font issues for now, I'll fix that again once the ventilation pipe is fixed). /Lokal_Profil 16:29, 1 May 2010 (UTC)
Fixed the font as well. I'll fix the other image to once you confirm that this one is ok. Btw. you might have to purge your cache in order to see the update. /Lokal_Profil 19:51, 6 May 2010 (UTC)

Hallo Annabel,

beantwoord op jouw (nederlandse) user talk pagina KVDP (talk) 07:41, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

Ivm de coefficienten; gezien ik geen scheikundige ben snap ik niet goed wat het verschil hierin is. Reeds heb ik ze al in sub, super-script alsook in gewoon schrift zien staan, zelfs in wetenschappelijke artikelen (bv in Popular Mechanics).

Ivm de coëfficiënten: de enige correcte notatie is in subscript. Die keren dat ik het tegenkwam, was in teksten vol pertinente onzin en bij reclame (die dan zoals het reclame helaas meestal betaamt, een loopje neemt met de waarheid). Ik kan het niet anders noemen, dan dat het voorkomen van superscripten voor het aangeven van aantallen atomen bij scheikundige formules, een goede graadmeter is voor nonsens en prietpraat die voor pseudowetenschappelijkheid moet doorgaan. Als je me een wikipedia artikel vindt dat dat toch doet, mag je me dit zeker signaleren. Met vriendelijke groet, Annabel (talk) 16:22, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

IPSocking to add images[edit]

I believe you've been IPSocking to add your images to energy-related articles. To be specific, this to Appropriate technology.

These diagrams of use are of your usual unacceptably low standard and are riddled with farcical technical inaccuracies. To start with, what on earth is domestic hydrogen storage doing in an article on Appropriate technology? Couldn't you limit yourself to personal jetpacks, and other technologies that have at least been demonstrated as workable? Secondly, the diagrams are once again unacceptably inaccurate. This is an encyclopedia, where we're supposed to care about accuracy. It's not a playpen for your random doodles and inventions, particularly not when they look like the work of an ignorant child.

Please stop doing this. Some of us have better things to be doing. I might even get to write articles on real energy technologies, if I wasn't wasting effort chasing this rubbish. Andy Dingley (talk) 20:33, 14 June 2010 (UTC)

Reed beds[edit]

Hi KVDP,

I've coloured the reed bed diagrams: see WP:GL/I#ReedBedSetUps.jpg. Please check that they're correct. --Slashme (talk) 18:39, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

Remarks:
File:Surface_Flow_Reedbed.svg --> remove excess blue lines (keep only 1), color water mass completely blue, left pipe needs to come slightly above the waterline, yet lower than the middle pipe (the water outlet). The middle pipe thus also needs to be hightened. Remove the right pipe (the third one) and place it in the first pond, this first pipe will be the water inlet. The third pond is removed and instead, the pond is swapped for soil. Also curve and extent the water outlet out to the right (for coherence to the other images). Also, there should be a disctinction between concrete, soil and (sand, gravel or) lavastones; ie dark grey, light grey and brown. In essence, just add another line below the concrete and color it brown; there is a black line in the pdf-drawing on which you can base this. The sand, gravel or lavastones (where the plants to root in) can be dawn by dividing the current "concrete block" in half and coloring the upper side light grey. For the "hills", I'm not sure how this is done, perhaps this is just concrete, check this with Dion.
File:Subsurface Flow Reedbed.svg --> take over the underground as I've drawn it in my picture (ie the same lines/layering/hills, ... as the first picture); in essence, there needs to be more or less the same amount of water above the (sand, gravel) or lavastones (not shown in pdf-image); personally, I'd simply draw the water inlet higher up (where the accumulates) and draw only 1 water outlet (without the "box" in the picture nor enlarged besides it, I'm btw not sure what the function of this is), extent the water outlet till end of picture. As noted above, there isn't any difference from the first image, it's simply drawn enlarged so as to show the arrows better, but for an svg this is probably not needed.
File:Vertical Flow Reedbed.svg

Coloring is wrong: water tank is filled with (dirty) water; thus blue instead of grey. The layer where the water inlet goes into actually needs to be composed of 2 colors: ie blue (above the water inlet pipe) and light grey (below the water inlet pipe). However, its probably clearer dough to again use the layering of the first schematic; the only difference with the first image is that there is now a pump added, and that the water goes straight down trough the substrate to the water outlet. The tank/pump doesn't need to be placed lower than the reedbed btw.

Perhaps its useful to also add numbering, add numbers for water inlet, outlet and the 3 layers (concrete, substrate and soil). My suggestions are also best confirmed with Dion dough, I'm no expert on it, but I think the suggestions will be correct.

KVDP (talk) 18:27, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

OK, I'll make those changes as soon as I get a chance! By the way, please note the difference between wikt:dough and wikt:though ;-] .--Slashme (talk) 16:48, 21 June 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Wildlife of Brazil[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Wildlife of Brazil requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content. You may wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. ~ [ Scott M. Howard ] ~ [ Talk ]:[ Contribs ] ~ 09:45, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

Misnamed file[edit]

Hi KVDP,

The image you uploaded under File:Camargue_Red_rice.JPG does not correspond to its title : this rice does not come from Camargue, but from Aude, as written on the bag. Aude is not located in Camargue. I suggest that you reupload the file under a different name and ask for deletion of the current one in order not to propagate the confusion. Face-wink.svg

Draft horse list[edit]

Hi, I tossed the draft horse list for several reasons. First of all, the list was horribly inaccurate, Akhal-tekes, Arabians and Andalusians (just to start with the As) are not draft horses. Your source was not reliable, and most of all this list is a duplicative content fork from List of horse breeds. Also, you had many, many links to disambiguated pages or geographic location pages, not the actual breed articles. While we appreciate anything to help improve wikipedia, this was not it. You are welcome to take your concerns to the talk page at list of horse breeds where we can discuss matters further. There is some debate over when breeds move from a heavy warmblood category to the draft category, and thus it's a tricky distinction to make, also. We'd prefer the breeds stay in one list, though there are small lists of breeds in articles such as draft horse. Montanabw(talk) 02:17, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

Windshaft[edit]

Hi KVDP, with the windshaft article you were mixing up some things, the windshaft is what we in dutch call bovenas, not what we call koningsspil, that is the main shaft, or upright shaft in english (accoording to the mill term dictionary I have). So I removed some irrelevant parts and pictures, and picked one picture from the dutch article. Akoopal (talk) 22:02, 3 December 2010 (UTC)

Thank Akoopal; fixed some other incorrections in articles forthfluing from this mixup.

Nitric vs Nitrous Oxide Production?[edit]

Regarding your contribution Nitric_oxide_production.png can you confirm that this apparatus produces nitric oxide, NO, rather than nitrous oxide, N2O, or nitrogen dioxide, NO2? You cite a reference with the title "The Gas That Makes You Laugh", implying that it's N2O. Yet the vapors above the reaction are said to be nitrogen peroxide, NO2 and item 6 in the drawing says that N2O would dissolve in cold water. Does the reaction of copper and nitric acid produce all those oxides of nitrogen so that they have to be separated by their boiling points? Karn (talk) 05:56, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

Look at the image description again, I added a link to the article, read the article.

KVDP (talk) 13:02, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

I've removed this, before WP kills someone. Yes, almost any decomposition of ammonium nitrate will produce some nitrous oxide. It will produce a whole lot of other oxides too - the output will be muckier than drag racer's nitrous.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay.

Carbon illegal, etc[edit]

Hi, I have no problem with you (or anyone) doing the work to re-add the section if it is supported by proper reliable sources; but the contents of each <ref> tag in the section need to be bibliographic citation to the RS, and not just footnote-like commentary like they mostly are now. In other words, REF tags should be formatted according to citing sources. I haven't taken time to read up on it or I might do it myself. If you take another crack at it, please pay careful attention to the question "is this proposal to make emissions 'illegal' substantively different than cap-and-trade proposals already covered in other sections of the article"? If the answer is no, then any new info in this section should be merged with the cap-and-trade discussion, not stuck in under a redundant, arguably POVish subheading.

Biodiesel images[edit]

The images are of homebrew equipment designs; they're both how-to content and based on original research and thus, cannot be included. I'm unsure why you continue trying to foist this quality (questionably safe design, etc) of content on Wikipedia. We've had this discussion before (when you promised to make changes and never did). While you're capable of posting interesting and useful images, you also repeatedly ignore guidelines (particularly WP:NOR) to the point of being disruptive (as been cataloged here and here).--E8 (talk) 16:08, 16 March 2013 (UTC)

I just figured that the images were suitable for that page (on biodiesel production, I allready assumed that it wasn't suitable for the Biodiesel page.
I regards to the image you mentioned; the images I made were the promised update (admittedly a bit late). The new images were partly made using the old image.

Your use of multiple Wikipedia accounts[edit]

Hi. An editor has opened an investigation into sockpuppetry by you. Sockpuppetry is the use of more than one Wikipedia account, which contravenes community policy. The investigation is being held at Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/KVDP, where the editor who opened the investigation has presented their evidence. Please make sure you make yourself familiar with the guide to responding to investigations, and then feel free to offer your own evidence or to submit comments that you wish to be considered by the Wikipedia administrator who decides the result of the investigation. If you have been using multiple accounts (in a manner contrary to Wikipedia policy), please go to the investigation page and admit to it now. Leniency is usually shown to those who promise not to do so again, or who did so unwittingly, but the abuse of multiple accounts is taken very seriously by the Wikipedia community.

SPI[edit]

Regarding the SPI report filed against you. There is no absolute rule against editing whilst logged out, but given the contentious nature of the edits you're making I think it's best if you edit solely from your one named account. Editing as an IP may be seen as an attempt to avoid scrutiny (whether deliberate or not). Nothing is going to come of the SPI report this time, but if you don't heed this advice it may lead to a block in future. Regards Basalisk inspect damageberate 23:22, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:AmateurRadioAntenna2.JPG[edit]

"The radio station works completely analogue. These kind of antennas are today outdated and are slowly being replaced by digital stations working via satellite (Orbiting Satellite Carrying Amateur Radio; see The OSCAR Wikipedia entry and/or eguipment using the Internet Radio Linking Project"

I'm not sure that station operates completely analog. They could be using digital modes as well. There are multiple kinds of antennas there - I doubt they are outdated. These kinds of antennas are used in everything from television to cellular phone communications, and more. And the Satellite commmunications, antennas used, are based on the principles of these antennas.

You do seem to be talking about Amateur (Ham) Radio when you cite "OSCAR" and "IRLP", Oscar would keep the antennas going, IRLP is a project that links via the Internet - Ham Radio Repeaters (mostly UHF and VHF) which use These Kinds of Antennas. Radio Frequency (RF) transmission is "Analog" ... with modulation that could be analog or digital - Digital being analog tones sent in some kind of sequence to carry the protocol or protocols of the digital content. The analog radio wave signal is "detected" and the modulation is extracted ... be it carrying analog of digital information. Most of which can be decoded by older computers with the proper software and hardware (e.g. sound card + softtware.) I don't think antennas are going anywhere for a LONG time.

Information icon Please do not add promotional material to Wikipedia. While objective prose about beliefs, products or services is acceptable, Wikipedia is not intended to be a vehicle for soapboxing, advertising or promotion. Thank you. --Ronz (talk) 17:19, 6 November 2013 (UTC)

It appears you like to add recent press to articles. Even in the best cases, this can cause WP:RECENTISM problems. When it's only to add examples, especially sourced with press releases or the like, it is much more problematic, usually violating both WP:NOTADVOCATE and WP:NPOV. Please be more careful. --Ronz (talk) 17:19, 6 November 2013 (UTC)

Copying within Wikipedia[edit]

Information icon Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you copied or moved text from Eugenics into History of eugenics. While you are welcome to re-use Wikipedia's content, here or elsewhere, Wikipedia's licensing does require that you provide attribution to the original contributor(s). When copying within Wikipedia, this is supplied at minimum in an edit summary at the page into which you've copied content. It is good practice, especially if copying is extensive, to also place a properly formatted {{copied}} template on the talk pages of the source and destination. The attribution has been provided for this situation, but if you have copied material between pages before, even if it was a long time ago, please provide attribution for that duplication. You can read more about the procedure and the reasons at Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia. Thank you. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 00:36, 17 November 2013 (UTC)

Closed requested move at Talk:low-speed vehicle[edit]

Hello, I've closed the above-mentioned move request as it seems (from the title and pages in question) you were requesting a merge. The process for proposing a merge is detailed on this page, however in this case, while the two articles have similar titles, the topics they cover seem to have little if any overlap and I'd advise against proposing this merge. If you had a different requested move in mind, please let me know. Thanks benmoore 20:10, 7 February 2014 (UTC)
