SpaceX barge citation thing[edit]

I saw that you added a hidden note for the Thrustmaster information. There is an archived version of that website at https://archive(dot)today/x5xD6, but certain elements of Wikipedia have it in for that website's owner and have set a filter disallowing its links in articles. If you don't mind, I'll set a commented-out archive link within the citation so folks can access it, and that should relieve the need for a long explanatory comment. Huntster (t @ c) 15:43, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

Huntster -- No, don't mind at all. In fact, if I'd known there was an archive link, I would have used it and that would have avoided the need for the long comment I left. Glad you fixed the situation. (but I haven't had the time to go to that article and look yet; just know you did it well!) Cheers. N2e (talk) 18:10, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

admin proposal comments[edit]

DYK for Autonomous spaceport drone ship[edit]

Deletion of "Squish" on Combustion chamber[edit]

I feel your deletion was premature. The article is still barely more than a stub and there are very few citations. If you are going to delete "Squish", why not also delete "Swirl"(which has no citations)? I am aware that WP relies on referencing & verifiability, but articles should not be smothered at birth for want of citations. Rome wasn't built in a day! I suggest instead that Squish should be reinstated, with a citation needed tag. Arrivisto (talk) 10:52, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

I have restored the deleted sentence, and have cited two references. Arrivisto (talk) 12:56, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
Please look at the Combustion chamber talk page. Arrivisto (talk) 13:06, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
That's great that you added sources. That info was removed only because it did not have sources. I'll try to get over to that Talk page in the next day or two. N2e (talk) 17:37, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

SIAI-Marchetti S.205 specifications[edit]

I reverted your mass [citation needed] tagging of the specifications section of the SIAI-Marchetti S.205 article, as all the specifications are covered by the existing reference (i.e. the 1966–67 edition of Jane's All The World's Aircaft). The specifications have been unchanged since they were added with the citation parameters in 2010 [1], and the parameters that you tagged (i.e stall speed, range ceiling and climb) rate are as quoted in Jane's.Nigel Ish (talk) 18:50, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

Elon Musk founder dispute[edit]

Hello! I also believe the best thing to do is to open a discussion to reach consensual agreement then have the discussion closed, so that this dispute doesn't continue throughout 2015 as it has throughout 2014. I have started the discussion on talk:Elon Musk, and have expressed my views, other editors have also weighed in. It would be great if you could review the discussion and add your views as well, thanks! Heuh0 (talk) 01:18, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

I'll try to get over there, take a look, and weigh in. Thanks for the invitation. N2e (talk) 05:48, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

Elon Musk proposals[edit]

Hi! I've now added the reason for the proposals, and provided reliable sources specifically for Tesla Motors (which you commented on in your decision to oppose). I apologise for the delay of this, just letting you know as you may wish to read them, and it possibly could change you descison somewhat, or perhaps not. Either way they are there. Thanks, Heuh (talk) 17:21, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

Thanks Heuh. I think that is much better. I've finally figured out how I wanted to not vote on each of the two proposals, and have left my input on the Talk page.
In the future, I can think of one thing you may want to watch out for on proposals like that. (it's based on what I think closer's typically like to see...). If interested, ping me sometime and we can discuss. N2e (talk) 01:55, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

Heads up on YouTube links[edit]

Hi, Thanks for all your contributions on the Elon Musk article. On the talk page you've listed several very good sources. However you've also linked to some copyright infringements by DreamTV and others on YouTube.Anyone posting videos on YT that is not the producer and owner of the video is in copyright violation. YT doesn't enforce it unless the owner complains but WP has a higher standard than that. So these URLs can not be used in citations or External Link sections of articles and should be removed from the talk page post per WP:YOUTUBE and WP:EL. If you can find the originals on the website of the content producers and owners, then they could be used. Thanks!-- KeithbobTalk 17:50, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Hello, i was not connected since some time, congratulation on your new job and on your perseverance on wiki.Economic and budgets aspects of spaceflight are often underlooked on wiki, i am happy to see that its a aspect of it you are according importance.Ad astra. Beaucouplusneutre (talk) 01:16, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
Well, thank you Beaucouplusneutre! I agree that the economic aspects are a bit under-covered on Wikipedia, and would welcome having your input, and especially identification of any new reliable sources, for improving aspects of the coverage of economic matters on a variety of spaceflight articles. Cheers. N2e (talk) 16:54, 6 January 2015 (UTC)

Delta Mariner[edit]

Hey N2e, I would suggest that the NASA vehicles category be removed from MV Delta Mariner. It is neither owned nor operated by NASA, but by Foss Maritime for ULA. Huntster (t @ c) 03:56, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

You are right. My mistrake! Not NASA. It is some sort of terrestrial equipment for spaceflight though, so I tried a more applicable (although not perfect) cat. Perhaps a new cat is needed? Or ... ??? N2e (talk) 04:04, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
Geez, that Spaceflight ground equipment category is underpopulated! I don't really think its a good category for a ship, but its no big deal. I'm not sure that an even more specialised ship category is needed at this point, since there's so few ships which would populate it...really just the Mariner, ASDS, and a few NASA ships...but I would not vote against it.

DYK nomination of Utah Transfer of Public Lands Act[edit]

Symbol question.svg Hello! Your submission of Utah Transfer of Public Lands Act at the Did You Know nominations page has been reviewed, and some issues with it may need to be clarified. Please review the comment(s) underneath your nomination's entry and respond there as soon as possible. Thank you for contributing to Did You Know! BlueMoonset (talk) 18:32, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

N2e, it's been well over a week since the above was posted, and there hasn't been any action. If there aren't any valid hooks proposed—and the ones that had been proposed have all been struck—then the nomination cannot continue. Please stop by soon if you wish to continue pursuing the nomination. Thank you. BlueMoonset (talk) 21:49, 17 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks BlueMoonset. I've gone over there now and proposed a new hook and set of Alt hooks. It's clear that the propective 31 December hooks are all outdated now. N2e (talk) 15:10, 18 January 2015 (UTC)
