Line shaft[edit]

You lost me on your 1.15 am edit. Whats the link to Hydraulic and Pneumatic?--ClemRutter (talk) 10:29, 2 February 2012 (UTC)

Makes sense now. Nice piece of work.--ClemRutter (talk) 21:37, 2 February 2012 (UTC)

Electrification[edit]

I had a look at the work in progress- and see a little local difficulty. As far as I can ascertain in a GB context, the word electrification is limited to the phrase 'Electrification of the railways' and in the 1950 'Electrification' was a big issue, with the Electrification of the West Coast Main Line#Modernisation by British Rail. It affected the schools, where there were assemblies on how dangerous it would be to try and touch one of the cables. Bridges had to be raised to allow for gauge clearance.

I have done a quick google on History electricity Manchester and found this Wolverhampton article which is fascinating to read Electricity in the Midlands -nowhere is the process providing electricity referred to as 'electrification'! Doesn't prove anything but it is worth noting that the North Am usage seems broader, and that should be noted with possibly a {{See also}} template. I won't touch the text while you are working on it. --ClemRutter (talk) 01:05, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

License tagging for File:Five dollar Banknote of Citizens Bank of Louisiana.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Five dollar Banknote of Citizens Bank of Louisiana.jpg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information.

If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia. For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions.

Sources for Ayres–Warr model[edit]

When you say that the IMF "adopted [Ayers & Warr's] methodology" in the WEO 2012, I assume you are referring to WEO Scenario 3, in which the contribution of oil to output is considerably increased compared to their benchmark scenario. I wouldn't describe this as "adopted their methodology"; it is only an alternative scenario considered next to the main scenario. In relation to the question whether we have sufficient sourcing for the article Ayres-Warr model, this source qualifies as independent. I'm less certain whether it qualifies as reliable, but let's assume the IMF staff who worked on these scenarios are experts in the field. Then, still, I don't see significant coverage. The actual reference to the Ayres–Warr model does not go further than stating that they (and others!) "have argued that [the IMF benchmark scenario model] understates the importance of energy, including oil, for economic activity" and "have found output contributions of energy that range from 30 percent to more than 60 percent". The coverage in independent reliable sources should be such that one should be able to base the article on the content of that coverage; I don't see that here.  --Lambiam 01:50, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

If the article survives I'll address this issue. No point at this time.Phmoreno (talk) 02:52, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
Hello Lambiam, there is a discussion here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Useful_work_growth_theory see summary of scope - if you are satisfied with coverage, you might vote ( if not too ... ) — Preceding unsigned comment added by SergeyKurdakov (talkcontribs) 10:51, 16 June 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for February 8[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Industrial Revolution, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Milling (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.

June 2014[edit]

Information icon Thank you for trying to keep Wikipedia free of vandalism. However, one or more edits you labeled as vandalism, such as the edit at Economic growth, are not considered vandalism under Wikipedia policy. Wikipedia has a stricter definition of the word "vandalism" than common usage, and mislabeling edits as vandalism can discourage editors. Please read Wikipedia:NOTVAND for more information on what is and is not considered vandalism. I don't think that user Bobrayner, who has 47,000 edits, will be discouraged, but labeling edits as vandalism in edit summaries does not encourage discussion or collaboration. Thanks.S. Rich (talk) 17:16, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

It is really censorship by a person with a bias against this theme. Actually that is worse than vandalism.Phmoreno (talk) 17:21, 4 June 2014 (UTC)
So work out an acceptable version on the talk page (as you are). Labeling edits as vandalism or bias or censorship will not help you win the argument or create consensus. If you feel this is a severe problem, go to the NPOV noticeboard. – S. Rich (talk) 17:31, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

Complaints to Noticeboards[edit]

Please note that notification templates to editor talk pages say "there is currently...." I suggest you start the discussion first, and then post your notices to the involved editors. Also, on the Wikipedia:Neutral point of view/Noticeboard (which deals with article content) and the Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Edit warring (which deals with active edit warriors and recent violations of the three-revert rule), be sure to follow the guidelines on the Noticeboards about how to use them. – S. Rich (talk) 18:37, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

I suggest you participate in some of the board discussions just for a bit of practice. Consider the comments, reply as you feel best, and then see what comes about. You'll get a better feel for how the boards work. You might also see why they are sometimes called "Drama Boards". (See: Wikipedia:Drama for more.) – S. Rich (talk) 20:30, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

Economic Growth Article[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware, Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made; that is to say, editors are not automatically "entitled" to three reverts.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing.
Please take a step back and be careful not to exceed 3 reverts. SPECIFICO talk 21:10, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

I'm disappointed to see that you're continuing to edit that article prior to keeping your promise to read the Barro book. Nothing good is going to come of this. It's better to take an extra week or two and get it right than to continue the same contentious changes which remain unresolved on the article and talk pages. SPECIFICO talk 02:02, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
