Fukushima timeline[edit]

I noted that in the deletion debate for the above article you suggested a cleanup. I am curious what you had in mind? Sandpiper (talk) 18:47, 13 April 2011 (UTC)

Timelines are normally created in such a way that the readers would get a summarized account of the events that happened. The list is presented as a bit too narrative. Stress points need to be addressed by being straight to the point. Also, you might want to ask other hardcore copy-editors to help out. I'll try to help out too. --TitanOne (talk) 13:06, 14 April 2011 (UTC)
The listings are already a summarised account. I think that in the fullness of time some points will change because new facts become available and some things will become redundant, but I also think there will be more to say on exactly what did happen. The real question is how would you suggest putting across a detailed description of the events, which is the task which the article is attempting to do. It is described as a timeline because it is peppered with at 1:00 this and 2:00 that and 3:00 the other. These timeings can not really be removed from a description because the order and relative timing of events is all part of understanding what happened. So either you have a block of text where every other sentence begins 2:00, or you have a time indexed list giving as much prose for each entry as is needed. What you cannot do is start cutting information. Or do you disagree? Sandpiper (talk) 09:23, 15 April 2011 (UTC)
What do you think if we place the time line in table form? --TitanOne (talk) 13:54, 15 April 2011 (UTC)
what is the objective of doing so? There would then be a page consisting of a table rather than paragraphs starting with date/time as now. I think that probably the level of details will fall off with time, things were extremely hectic at firt but now are more routine. So I suspect that while the timeline needs a lot of detail with timestamps to begin with, by the end it is down to on Monday such and such, on tuesday susch and such, or even not mentioning days because nothing new happened. So in fact, it might not suit to be using a consistent approach throughout. Sandpiper (talk) 21:06, 18 April 2011 (UTC)
Good point Sandpiper, my only concern is that the article needs improvements on the scale of its reader-friendly orientation. --TitanOne (talk) 14:28, 19 April 2011 (UTC)

Hey Atenista, do you have any interest in becoming an administrator? Admins can delete and protect pages, view history of deleted pages/files, edit fully protected pages, and block users. Your record is stellar, and I would be happy to nominate you at WP:RFA if you feel like these powers could be of use. TheCoffee (talk) 04:18, 15 April 2011 (UTC)

Hey, nice to hear from you. I've actually been wanting to. I'm just not sure if my credentials were enough already? --TitanOne (talk) 13:43, 15 April 2011 (UTC)
Let's see... You've been around for over 2 years, made a ton of DYKs, and your user page says you contributed to 3 Good Article and 1 Feature Article. And you already have rollbacker, autopatrolled, and reviewer privileges. You may have a chance... But if you're not sure you could revisit the idea after raking up more edits and experience. :p TheCoffee (talk) 04:32, 17 April 2011 (UTC)
Give me 3 months to rack up a good record on the non-editing stuff such as RFA's, AFD's, etc. I've been contributing more around on content and took a wikibreak for about a year. I'll let you know when I'm ready. --TitanOne (talk) 08:32, 18 April 2011 (UTC)
