Nuclear test tables[edit]

I noticed your recently created articles on Soviet nuclear tests and went through them and fixed a few consistent typos (e.g. "Semiplatinsk" => "Semipalatinsk"). While doing so, I noticed that the table you're using could be improved a bit:

  • Put the table notes into a "note" group. This keeps them footnotes but distinguishes them from actual references.
  • Skip the "in Curies, with metric prefixes" bit in the venting notes. Units are given in the table, and it's always better to just add a conversion to SI.
  • "(and yes, they are all metric units)" feels a bit too informal for an encyclopedia. Something like "(all metric units)" should suffice.

I went ahead and implemented these changes in 1966 Soviet Nuclear Tests.
Cheers. Kolbasz (talk) 15:38, 16 December 2013 (UTC)

Thanks, Kolbasz. I've implemented your suggestions (and also corrected Semipalatinsk's misspell), and they should show up in the pages that haven't yet been done - I did 1967, -8, and -9 this afternoon. Regards, SkoreKeep (talk) 22:05, 16 December 2013 (UTC)

Invitation to join MILHIST[edit]

Welcome to MILHIST[edit]

Operation Sandstone[edit]

Nice additions to the article. If you could let me know where it is sourced from, that would be even better.

Also, I am still looking for reviewers for Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Armed Forces Special Weapons Project/archive1.

Operation Fishbowl[edit]

I noticed that you've added the Line Islands to Johnston Island as being involved in the Operation Fishbowl nuclear tests. I don't understand the rationale for adding the Line Islands. All of the launches were done from Johnston Island. There were ships and aircraft involved from many areas across the Pacific, but I don't remember ever reading of any unusually significant involvement from the Line Islands.

On a related matter, the "location" of nuclear tests in the new tables causes consistent confusion about rocket launched tests when the launch points are stated in words, followed immediately by the coordinates of the detonation, without further explanation. This was a significant problem in the Soviet K Project article, and it is still a bit of a problem in the Operation Fishbowl article. It would leave the impression that Johnston Island moved around a few hundred miles during 1962.

I believe that there were 25 Soviet nuclear tests launched by rocket, and I can think of 11 United States nuclear tests launched by rocket (and one by balloon). In all of these cases, the location is going to be different, sometimes substantially, between the launch and detonation points. X5dna (talk) 11:12, 19 January 2014 (UTC)

Hmmmmm. Somewhere I got the impression that Johnston Island was one of the Line Islands. Certainly have to fix that.
Fixed it. See Operation Dominic.
Yeah, I've been contemplating what to do about the rocket thing. The example that came first to mind was Swordfish, which was launched and exploded in open waters, 1200 miles apart. For the moment all I can say is that the lat/lon tags are always the explosions. I guess I've got to rethink how exactly the "wordy" descriptions happen, and what to do to make them work consistently, at least among rocket launches. I really need to highlight both the locations. Give me a few days to think on it, and I'll get back to the talk page for it.
Thanks for stirring up the bees here; I needed that!! SkoreKeep (talk) 11:42, 19 January 2014 (UTC)
Fixed that. See Soviet Project K nuclear tests. SkoreKeep (talk) 05:46, 20 January 2014 (UTC)

Using capitals on Wikipedia[edit]

Hi, and thanks for your work. Could you please read WP:MOSCAP and correct your use of capitals? Thanks a lot. --John (talk) 22:20, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

Yes, I noticed the "Explosions" thing this morning and changed my template. I noted your other changes to the Soviet K project, and am making those changes as well. The next updates I'll be doing are the Soviet series, starting with 1949-51, so check that one out later today and back me up on it, if you will. Crossroads is a special deal, what with the featured article designation, so you're having done that is good. I won't be able to get back around to all the US pages again for a week or so (I just finished sweeping them this morning), but they'll get updated for this in due course. Thanks for the help.

Speedy deletion nomination of Nuclear testing: India, Pakistan and North Korea[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. This is a notice to inform you that a tag has been placed on Nuclear testing: India, Pakistan and North Korea 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, a "See also" section, book references, category tags, template tags, interwiki links, images, a rephrasing of the title, or an attempt to contact the subject of the article. 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.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. PamD 00:00, 24 January 2014 (UTC)

Not a problem. Had I known how to go about it, I'd have deleted it myself. It is just a meaningless title now, and the talk page can go with it - nothing there of any use. SkoreKeep (talk) 01:26, 24 January 2014 (UTC)

Nuclear testing[edit]

Deleted. Had I known that you wanted it to be deleted, I would have deleted it yesterday. Nyttend (talk) 12:58, 24 January 2014 (UTC)

Nuclear testing: proposed article moves[edit]

Hello SkoreKeep. I've opened a regular move discussion at Talk:Soviet Union's nuclear testing series. Thank you, EdJohnston (talk) 01:35, 25 April 2014 (UTC)


Hi there,

Don't worry: The EasterEgg concept is pretty easy to get the hang of. Basically, a link to "X" should be called "X". If it's called "Y", when the user gets to that tab, they may ask "Where did this article 'Y' come from? I don't remember clicking a link to 'Y'". And of course, they didn't; they clicked a link to "X".

The purpose of piped links is generally to alter syntax to match the surrounding sentence structure; they're not for giving a link a different name from the attached article.

Precession of perihelion[edit]

Thank you for your interest in editing articles related to planets. Please consider removing the perihelion precession information from planet infoboxes. All six orbital elements have complicated variations in time, and there is no obvious reason for singling out the argument of pericenter. In addition, the variations are very small and are applicable only at the current epoch, so the numbers as currently listed are somewhat distracting and misleading. If you feel that the numbers must be listed somewhere, consider adding a table to the apsidal precession article. Thank you. JeanLucMargot (talk) 16:56, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

As you request. SkoreKeep (talk) 17:08, 12 August 2014 (UTC)
