Just a quick edit of my User Talk page.

Integrated Guided Missile Development Program (India)[edit]

Hi Dude

I have read this article in details today and it contains overwhleming amount of very dubvious claims with minimal amount of reliable resources.

Being a knowledgable person in this area, could you please have a look this - as in my opinion such articles seriously undermine Wikipedia's reliability as an encyclopedic resource.

Many thanks -- Ash sul 18:20, 5 November 2007 (UTC)

Hello, Thanks for compliment, but I'm not knowlegable about Indian weapons. What areas of the article do you believe to false and mis-leading? Rocketmaniac 02:22, 6 November 2007 (UTC)
Hey, I did some research on the Astra missile and edited that section in the article. Rocketmaniac 14:07, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

Flags on List of astronauts by name[edit]

Curious as to your reason for removing the flag icons from List of astronauts by name. An astronaut's citizenship is a frequent demarcation and common point of interest for those researching spaceflight. Also, WP:FLAG states "Flag icons may be appropriate in tables or lists provided that citizenship, nationality or jurisdiction is intimately tied to the topic at hand, such as comparison of global economic data or reporting of international sporting event results". Rillian 00:58, 9 November 2007 (UTC)

It was discussed here. Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Human Spaceflight I was just following the advice of someone who has tons more experience here on Wikipedia. Rocketmaniac 01:08, 9 November 2007 (UTC)

Astronauts by name[edit]

Got your note, and I took a look at your sandbox. The agency only needs to be wiki-linked once, per the WP:MOS, so just the first mention of NASA gets the link, NASA, and all the rest don't need to be linked. Same with all agencies. And yeah the list does look better in a table, but it maybe could be smaller, it probably doesn't need to be full width. And, the note about flags at the top would need to be removed, lol. That's a big job, for sure, lol. Thanks for taking it on! ArielGold 14:49, 9 November 2007 (UTC)

Also, if you don't know about it, in the history tab of an article, you can compare two versions using the checkmarks on the left, (such as the current version of an article after you edit it, and the version that was in effect prior to the start of your editing), and if you decide you'd like to go back to that previous reversion, just click on "Restore this version". There is no need to undo all the individual edits one at a time, so that should save you some time perhaps in the future :) ArielGold 14:59, 9 November 2007 (UTC)
I was mainly talking about the general appearance of the section. I've not yet mastered the art of tables, but if I do the tedious part of creating tables, I might get someone else to make it look better. (hint hint). Question, a new table for each letter? And far as only linking the first space agency, I'd think you'd want to do the first one in each section. That way if the reader was way down the list at letter "M" they wouldn't have to go back up top and find the first occurance of the space agency. Logical? I should be able to get the whole list modified this weekend. Rocketmaniac 17:09, 9 November 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, new table for each letter so there is a table of contents. And yeah, probably a good idea to wiki-link the agencies for each letter as well, the first instance. Once it is done I can tweak it, sure. Thanks again for taking on the project! Also see my note on the project page about the other list. ArielGold 17:55, 9 November 2007 (UTC)
Table looks good. A few comments. First column should be labeled Name as the article title already states that they are all Astronauts. "Space Agency" can just be "Agency". Not sure we can avoid the nationality column. Most casual readers will want to know what country the astronaut represented. With RKA in particular, not all RKA astronauts are Russian or Soviet. How about a "Number of Missions" column? Should birth date be a separate column? How about a column for Active Duty where we would list the years of duty with the agency? Rillian 19:00, 10 November 2007 (UTC)
Good ideas, Rillian! But I'd still discourage the use of nationality flags, as especially with a table like that, it is going to slow down the loading of the page, and it isn't necessary to have the icons. It is true that in the older days, nationality was a bit more obscure with regards to which agency, but now, the only agency that has astronauts from other nations is ESA, (where someone was born doesn't matter in terms of their participation as an astronaut, generally speaking, for instance, a NASA astronaut who was born abroad still is from NASA, an American agency) but I agree that since this is a comprehensive table, a country of origin column may be worth adding. ArielGold 19:05, 10 November 2007 (UTC)
I'm not mandating flag icons, rather that a Nationality column is an important demographic detail that most readers are interested in. In any case, we should probably move this discussion to Talk:List of astronauts by name Rillian 19:23, 10 November 2007 (UTC)
Oh, sorry I didn't mean you were asking for flag use, my apologies if it seemed that way! :D And yep, discussion could be moved, and I do agree with a nationality column! :o) ArielGold 19:25, 10 November 2007 (UTC)

SC portal[edit]

User:Rocketmaniac/South Carolina2 is fixed.

When you move it and its subpages into the portal space, you'll need to do search/replace on its main page, changing "User:Rocketmaniac" to "Portal".

To search/replace, cut and paste the whole page into a text editor (I used Wordpad, which comes with Windows) for this. To start Wordpad on Windows click on Start, then All programs, then Accessories, then Wordpad.

If you need further assistance, please let me know.

The Transhumanist 01:32, 29 November 2007 (UTC)

WOW, you made it look easy. Many thanks. In your opinion, what else needs to be (or should be) done to the portal before going live with it? Again, thank you for you help. Rocketmaniac (talk) 02:15, 29 November 2007 (UTC)
It still needs an excerpt from a featured article. If there is no featured article on a South Carolina topic, select one yourself from the encyclopedia, and rename that section "Selected article". The section "Today in South Carolina history" requires ongoing upkeep (one entry per day). Therefore, unless you want to track down 365 entries per year for that section, you should replace that section with something else, or just remove it. Once you've done the these things, look over ten other portals. Implement any good ideas you get from doing that, and then go live. Face-glasses.svg Have fun. The Transhumanist 02:29, 29 November 2007 (UTC)

Hey, I got my Portal moved to a "real" page and everything appears to be fine. Now, what links/redirects do I need to edit to include this new Portal? Is there a template or list to follow? No sense in building a portal if no one goes there and uses it right? Thanks again. Rocketmaniac (talk) 03:37, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

Nice Job. Clean and crisp.
I moved things around to reduce white space and balance the columns. You might want to move the sections around some more to get the best placement/order of presentation.
Are purge buttons no longer needed? You might want to look into whether or not your portal needs one.
For links, you need to put a portal template on the corresponding article and category page. See other articles for how it's done there. Add your portal to the portal directory (accessible from Wikipedia:Portals), also add it to Portal:Portals, and to the shortcut directory (see the menu at the top of the Community Portal). Announce your new portal on the WP:CBB (in the section for new portals).
I hope that helps.
The Transhumanist 07:44, 30 November 2007 (UTC)
Yea, as it grows it might need some additional shuffling around. I'll wait until I am finished with the major "adds". I'm not what a purge button is, so I don't know if the portal needs one or not. Rocketmaniac (talk) 12:33, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

Iamanadam's Response[edit]

Didn't add it The town I mean, it was already there. I simply made it as a link. I was going to go back and take if off the list of cities, but I never got the chance Iamanadam (talk) 22:02, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

Centering Template:Delaware title[edit]

14-Dec-2007: For Internet Explorer browsers, the title is centered over the capital. What web browser/version are you using, and which direction (left/right) is which state's title not centered over its capital-city name? I see now the alignment is different in Mozilla Firefox, formerly centered there, although not in IE. -Wikid77 (talk) 15:23, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

I am using IE 7. The capital was off to the right. But that has all changed now. User:Zzyzx11 reverted your edit. (or at least on the South Carolina one) Rocketmaniac (talk) 19:07, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

Round O, South Carolina[edit]

Yea, after looking at those edits, this user is up to no good. Thanks for you input and then reverting the Round O article. Rocketmaniac (talk) 04:19, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

Portal: Georgia (U.S. state)[edit]

Rocketmaniac,

I've noticed that you're doing some work on the Georgia (U.S. state) Portal tonight. I've went ahead and added myself to the list of collaborators as well. Is there anything you need me to do? I'm about to go offline, but I'll be glad to help out starting tomorrow. Thanks for all your help with the portal. Reb (talk) 01:50, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

Hey Reb. I started the South Carolina Portal a few weeks ago and have family in Georgia so I thought I might as well work on the portal. LOL, I started creating the Georgia Portal from scratch. After about 45 minutes of work (in my user area) I realized that it already existed. I must have missed it because of the issue with Georgia the country and Georgia the state. This portal is by no means "my" project. But, in my opinion I think it would be neat to expand it and make it excellant. When I research how other portals were created,there was one portal (I think Texas) that had multiple "Selected Articles" and a system of rotating them automatically. It would totally cool to have that for either the Georgia or South Carolina portals. Other than that, just normal expanding is what I see that should be done. Thanks for taking an interest. Rocketmaniac (talk) 02:10, 20 December 2007 (UTC)
Hey Rocket. Yep, I'm from Claxton and GSU graduate. Glad you like what I did at the portal. I was going to add more articles (was shooting for 30), but I got called away from the comp and never got finished. It looks great so far! Reb (talk) 03:13, 21 December 2007 (UTC)
Regarding the maintainer section at the Directory, why don't you just list us both as maintainers until we get more collaborators at the portal? Then we can make a formal decision on the individual who'll maintain it. Reb (talk) 19:37, 22 December 2007 (UTC)
Rocketmaniac, I've been remiss in something. I'm not sure if you're aware but there is a WikiProject: Georgia (U.S. state) that I'm a member of. I think you'd be a great asset if you'd like to join. Reb (talk) 20:03, 22 December 2007 (UTC)
I was actually thinking about the "Featured picture" section yesterday. I think we can adjust it, we just have to figure out how. I know that mainly it'll just involve moving the title to "Selected picture" from "Featured picture" but I don't know about the code and all. The Texas Portal might have some clue.

Georgia county navigation boxes[edit]

I agree that it looks a little bit bare. I'm not sure what we could add to it, though - maybe important geographic features? Oh, and a fun fact for you that I just learned last year - all "towns" and "cities" are, by Georgia law, designated cities. Weird, huh? Reb (talk) 14:13, 23 December 2007 (UTC)

I liked the ideas about schools, bodies of water, etc. As for cities, the Georgia article's section on cities differentiates between metropolitan and micropolitan areas. Perhaps just use that for cities? I don't know about CDPs but I do believe we have unincorporated communities. I'm almost certain I've seen that mentioned in various articles about Georgia cities. And I did answer that Portal question; I just messed up and didn't indent it over to make it more visible. Fixed that now - it's in your portals section. Reb (talk) 15:50, 23 December 2007 (UTC)
Rocket, I really like that list you've got and think it'll be very helpful. As for your other concern with cities I just went and checked out the Settlement category. In my honest opinion we're only going to need to use four designations. They are:
  • CDP
  • Metropolitan
  • Micropolitan
  • Unincorporated communities
As I said earlier, by law every community is a city so the "villages" and "towns" in that cat are immaterial - in my opinion. We'll have to work with it and see how it goes, I guess. Just let me know what you want me to do...might not be able to do a whole lot until Wednesday or Thursday of next week, though. Reb (talk) 00:21, 24 December 2007 (UTC)
We definitely need to mention it on the WikiProject page, I think. Hopefully we'll get a few more people interested in what we're doing. Reb (talk) 03:14, 24 December 2007 (UTC)
Rocket, I'm responding to the discussion at VerruckteDan's talk page right now. I forgot to add, my Christmas was great. Like you, I ate way too much *L*. Hope yours went well as well. Reb (talk) 16:05, 26 December 2007 (UTC)
Just wanted to let you know that VerruckteDan asked me to offer an opinion on this question, so I've given one on his talk page. Nyttend (talk) 23:43, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

Portal: South Carolina[edit]

Hey Rocket. I'll be glad to help out with those sections. I'll probably get to them after lunch. Reb (talk) 14:05, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

Did the Featured articles section. I'll work on biographies in a little bit Reb (talk) 15:53, 28 December 2007 (UTC).

Article assistance[edit]

Hey Rocket. I was wondering if you wouldn't mind taking a gander at my sandbox and letting me know what you think of the article I'm working on? It's a Protected areas of Georgia (U.S. state) article. The only thing that I know is missing is a Local level protected areas section; having a heck of a time finding decent information for that section, though. Thanks in advance. Reb (talk) 21:50, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

Anytime. I still have to do the biography section; didn't get to that like I planned. Thanks for looking at my article. Reb (talk) 22:57, 28 December 2007 (UTC)
Rocket, thanks for the detailed response on the article. I agree one hundred percent about those sections sounding like lists. I need to go back to the sources and see if I can't find a way to reword them somehow. And yes, the paragraphs that talk about areas under the control of the Georgia Department of Parks and Recreation and the United States Department of the Interior are meant to differentiate between the two. As for flora and fauna thing, first thanks for the links; I didn't even think about adding them myself. Secondly, yes I believe that's what I meant (that there are 58 protected plants). It's been a while since I worked on that area so I need to go back again to the source and make sure I'm right about that. Thanks so much again and if you have any more ideas/comments, please let me know. Reb (talk) 13:43, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

Blackbeard Island National Wildlife Refuge[edit]

Sounds like a plan. Right now I'm working on a Sports in Georgia (U.S. state) article in my sandbox. Have fun on your trip! Reb (talk) 01:33, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Hey Rocket. Just got a little nosy and peeked in your sandbox. Great work on Blackbeard Island National Wildlife Refuge. If there's anything I can do to help, let me know. Reb (talk) 20:54, 10 January 2008 (UTC)
It makes it a whole heck of a lot easier when you've got a format don't it? Reb (talk) 23:24, 10 January 2008 (UTC)
I did see that, but didn't really pay attention to the first time. It looks good! Reb (talk) 13:46, 11 January 2008 (UTC)
Hey, Rocket. Man, I didn't even think about that in regard to the category. Sorry about that Reb (talk) 01:40, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

Protected areas, parks, forests and other areas[edit]

Rocket, there is a Wikipedia: WikiProject Protected areas. That might be the best place for you to look. If you need me to drop in and post my thoughts, let me know Reb (talk) 18:16, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

More answers to more questions[edit]

Hey Rocket, sorry I didn't get back to you last night. In answer to your first question, I don't think all rivers and lakes are protected areas but I can't be sure. In regard to your second question, again I can't be sure, but I'd probably put it in "Other" for now. It depends on where you think the Savannah Coastal Refuges Complex goes.

Template:Infobox Protected areas of Georgia (U.S. state)[edit]

Hey, Rocket. I was wondering if I could get you to look at the Template:Infobox Protected areas of Georgia (U.S. state) and do the double map thing on that infobox? Also, could you change the Latitude and Longitude to Coordinates? I never could figure that out. Thanks Reb (talk) 19:24, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

That is exactly what I wanted! Thanks! Don't worry about the locater dot for this particular infobox, though. I don't think it's necessary. Thanks again. Reb (talk) 01:32, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

Re: What's going on?[edit]

Hey Rocket. Things are good here. Been trying to work on the Georgia Department of Transportation article to expand it. But, I just can't drum up the energy. Lunch sounds great if you do get down here. Thanks for the offer. Reb (talk) 16:11, 20 January 2008 (UTC)

Lunch sounds great, Rocket. Do you have an e-mail address I can use to get in touch with you? Reb (talk) 17:26, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

Human Spaceflight WikiProject[edit]

Hi, I noticed that you are a member of the Human Spaceflight WikiProject. A couple of weeks ago, I proposed that the Space missions and Space travellers projects, which both appear to be inactive be merged into the Human Spaceflight project. Whilst this is being done, the capitalisation of the Human spaceflight project's title would also be corrected (ie. Human SpaceflightHuman spaceflight). The projects are all doing the same/very similar things, and in my opinion, a single, larger, project would be more effective than three smaller, and somewhat inactive projects.. In light of very little response to messages on the project talk pages, I am now sending this message to all members of all three projects, inviting them to discuss the proposal on the Human Spaceflight project's talk page. I would appreciate your opinion on this. Thanks. --GW_SimulationsUser Page | Talk 22:47, 28 January 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for adding the see also's. I moved the Coaches and Roster (empty) sections of this article that you moved down below the game summaries (which are empty as well). WP:CFB designed a season article layout format which should be followed for articles such as this. You can see the layout at Wikipedia:WikiProject College football/Yearly team pages format. If you wish to discuss a change in the format, you can do so at WT:CFB, otherwise please follow the format. Thanks. MECUtalk 00:00, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Elevation-Vega blanc.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Elevation-Vega blanc.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

statistics sections[edit]

I noticed you were adding statistics sections to a lot of the 2008 articles. Don't you think its a bit early for that? They won't begin to be populated for another 7 months. Also, not every team used them. Do you plan on updating all of them? Just curious cause that would be a tremendous help.↔NMajdantalk 03:30, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

Personally, I would've waited until closer to the season to add that section, but I'm not gonna make a big deal about it. I do have a problem with adding those sections to all the articles if they are going to remain blank. So hopefully, that will not be the case.↔NMajdantalk 04:02, 20 February 2008 (UTC)
No, you're right. The information/statistics are out there and can be used on Wikipedia. But, take this from somebody who has updated the stats nearly every week for two seasons on one article, it is a lot of work to update those following every game. There are not many articles that have editors that do that every week, or at all. I do hope more teams do it so, again, any help would be appreciated.↔NMajdantalk 04:31, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

A new task force - ESA[edit]

Hello,

I've noticed that you are active in the area of space exploration. I just wanted to let you know that a European Space Agency task force has been set up to improve the presently very poor condition of articles about ESA and related topics. If you are interested, please join the task force here. We sure could use your help. Thanks.U5K0 (talk) 11:33, 18 August 2008 (UTC)

Colorado Portal[edit]

Hi there ... I would like to help with the Colorado portal. I already fixed a couple of links that referenced South Carolina. Do you have any other do's or do-not's for the portal?

I would specifically like to add more featured articles to rotate around. (I'm assuming the articles already rotate, right?)

Also, I think the Comptroller General is the title given to the national comptroller, right? So, do we need a space for comptroller on the page? I live here, and I don't even know what that does. I don't think it belongs in the "useful" list with Governor and Senators, etc. Thoughts?

Thx, Notcesia (talk) 21:20, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

Spaceflight portals[edit]

Hello! As an member editor of one or more of the Spaceflight, Human spaceflight, Unmanned spaceflight, Timeline of spaceflight or Space colonisation WikiProjects, I'd like to draw to your attention a proposal I have made with regards to the future of the spaceflight-related portals, which can be found at Portal talk:Spaceflight#Portal merge. I'd very much appreciate any suggestions or feedback you'd be able to offer! Many thanks,

WikiProject Human spaceflight activity[edit]

Hello there! As part of an effort to determine how many active editors are present in the spaceflight-related WikiProjects, I have made some changes to the list of members of WikiProject Human spaceflight. If you still consider yourself to be an active editor in this project, I would be grateful if you would please edit the list so that your name is not struck out - thus a clearer idea of the critical mass of editors can be determined. Many thanks in advance!

WikiProject Spaceflight reboot[edit]

Hello there! As you may or may not be aware, a recent discussion on the future of the Space-related WikiProjects has concluded, leading to the abolition of WP:SPACE and leading to a major reorganisation of WP:SPACEFLIGHT. It would be much appreciated if you would like to participate in the various ongoing discussions at the reorganisation page and the WikiProject Spaceflight talk page. If you are a member of one of WP:SPACEFLIGHT's child projects but not WP:SPACEFLIGHT itself, it would also be very useful if you could please add your name to the member list here. Many thanks!

Re File:F18Bfamilywebblueangel.jpg: since the source image is on the Commons, you should upload your derivative version there as well and give it a proper licence tag. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 20:16, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

Is it really so difficult? It is not rocket science. Go to commons:commons:upload and select the "derivative work of one or several files from Commons" option. But feel free to come back if you still cannot manage it. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 16:19, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

Population Density[edit]

Hi Rocketmaniac. I restored the figures on the List of U.S. states by population density‎ to the Census data. I think the confusion is coming from the difference between land area and total area (which includes inland waters such as lakes and rivers). Density calculations typically use land area, which may be causing the slight difference you found. In any event, as you well know Wikipedia only uses data that can be verified and cited to reliable sources. If you truly believe that the US Census Bureau has erred in one of their most basic formulations, I suggest you let them know! Best, epicAdam(talk) 13:12, 15 October 2011 (UTC)

Things have been good here. Just keeping busy with my county's 100 year anniversary (2014), genealogy research, and working with the Sons of Confederate Veterans. Glad to be back at Wiki. I've been itching to work on a few local articles. Reb (talk) 21:41, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
I've got about 13,000 names so far. All four of the main branches are related, it seems. One of the four has connections in the other three branches. It's very cool. Reb (talk) 23:39, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
