Compound adjectives[edit]

Hi Topbanana. I observed you, or a bot you are associated with, made a large number of edits to spaceflight-releated articles (a number of which appear on my Talk page) approximately 22:50 UTC on 10 December 2014.

Your change was to modify "Low-Earth orbit" to "Low Earth orbit"; here is one example from a comment in the History: " 22:54:27 . . (0)‎ . . ‎Topbanana (talk | contribs)‎ (Link repair: Low-Earth orbit -> Low Earth orbit "

I believe that is incorrect. I believe WP:MOS supports the use of hyphens in compound adjectives.

A hyphen in a compound adjective helps the reader understand more clearly what the modifier is, and I think they should be left. Whatdayathink? Cheers. N2e (talk) 05:54, 11 December 2014 (UTC)

Howdy. Personally, I like hyphenated compound adjectives but here it doesn't clarify things. The term doesn't refer to an "orbit of low-Earth", but rather a "Low-orbit of Earth" (or I suppose a "low Earth-orbit" where the body being orbited is not clear from context). Currently Low-Earth orbit is marked up as a mis-spelling of Low Earth orbit. I'll hold off changing any more links for a few weeks and watch Talk:Low-Earth orbit for any discussion on the correct use there. Cheers - TB (talk) 13:10, 11 December 2014 (UTC)
Hey, thanks. That'll be great. And I'll get over there and have some discussion. In the meantime, as someone who has worked in the development of spaceflight technology, and managed technical professionals who include an orbital mechanicist, I can say that there are many types of orbits, and "low-Earth" is one of those particular types: the compound adjective modifies the set of all types of orbits to be one of the (many) in the subset of low-Earth orbit.
Will continue discussion over where you said; probably within a few days as I'm slammed today. Thanks again for your openness to the dialogue. Cheers. N2e (talk) 15:50, 11 December 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Hi again. I'm not uninterested in the topic..., I've just never gotten it done. And got even more slammed after the first of the year that I'm almost on Wikibreak compared to my old wiki-pace. I can't do anything just now, but you may feel free to bug me with no foul, as the topic is worth getting right. Cheers. N2e (talk) 04:40, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

Hello Topbanana, I adjusted the PC level from 2 to 1 on this redirect. PC2 does not enjoy community consensus and is normally only applied for special IAR or AE reasons. If you have an IAR or AE reason, please revert this without further consultation. As this page is a redirect I recommend a normal protection mechanism instead of Pending Changes protection if it is having an issue. — xaosflux Talk 16:24, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

William A. Brown nominated for deletion[edit]

Proposed deletion of William A. Brown[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article William A. Brown has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Flagged with unref in 2012 with no action since then. No dates, no cites, only one sentence, and not able to find information on him that migt improve the article

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.  Eric Cable  |  Talk  13:05, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

Agree, this should probably be deleted. It was added to disambiguate the similarly named diplomat, William Andreas Brown. While I was able to confirm that they're not the same person (the dates, jobs and locale made it feasible that they were), I could not find much on the Bishop either other than that he exists and that, by virtue of his position, is/was probably notable. - TB (talk) 16:07, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

Re-write report request[edit]

Could you re-produce the two reports as defined in Wikipedia:WikiProject Chemicals/Lists of pages/Chembox templates transclusion count? Old page can be overwritten. -DePiep (talk) 22:22, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

Done. - TB (talk) 22:30, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

Jury Trial - help[edit]

I saw your revert at Jury Trial. The editor, Gerrytlloyd is adding the same material in seven different articles. Started out as highly POV with no refs, then refs that didn't mention what was being sourced and now information so watered down, it doesn't look too belong in the article. I'm getting to involved in this and could use some neutral eyes. Bgwhite (talk) 07:13, 24 March 2015 (UTC)
