Thanks[edit]

Skier, I have a background in biology, particularly in zoology. I am retired currently, but remain actively involved with hunting dogs. I have published three books about hunting dogs and hunting, one of them is my translation from Russian original published for the first time in Russia in late 19th century. I thank you for your assistance. Vladimir Beregovoy (Moved the User:XFEM Skier as it should have been placed here XFEM Skier (talk) 00:07, 26 November 2013 (UTC) )

Slip forming[edit]

Apparently you did not read the Los Angles Times article. "Other foundations are commonly poured in sequences and connected with reinforcing steel and ancillary slabs of concrete, but the engineers for the New Wilshire Grand insisted this foundation be created in one piece to provide the tower with greater structural support." This is slip forming.The Stroll (talk) 02:06, 16 February 2014 (UTC)The Stroll

The title of the LA Times articleThe Stroll (talk) 02:40, 16 February 2014 (UTC) had a 20 hour pour and I also had the information concerning a 20 hour pour in the paragraph. That is slip forming. The Stroll (talk) 02:40, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 16[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Pavement milling, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Aggregate and Micro (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.

Your comment on my talk page (re EMC)[edit]

I have removed the comment you made on my talk page. I did not edit anyone;s comments. I improved my own. I am allowed to do that. Okay?

Kind regards 213.66.81.80 (talk) 19:43, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

Thanks but I read the policy many times and believe that among others, the fact that I did edits to my own before anyone had responded, means that's fine. At that's all. And compared to the personal attacks I have had to suffer these past few days, it is a pimple in the pimple bucket. I really dont want any unnecessary aggravation over "nothing". Thanks. So if you have discretion, let's assume good faith. I am really getting to the end of my patience with Wikipedia. Kind regards 213.66.81.80 (talk) 21:29, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

EMC Talk page

Please see my message on your posting. I am at the end of my plank. Sorry I'm Swedish I dont always have the right words. Just take a look at the latest postings of this Karl. It just never stops. It's relentless. Now he is using your words to ally you to him. I am convinced he is a Portland cement lobbyist. It is just crazy what he is saying. Why is he so fixated with making EMC a subset of Portland cement when so obviously it is anything BUT? 213.66.81.80 (talk) 21:59, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

About the Jono213/213.66.81.80 SPI page[edit]

Hello!

Please forgive me if I have posted this in an inappropriate way, here(I am very inexperienced at all of this).

As an interested party, XFEM Skier, you may want to comment on a lengthy post I made on the Jono213/213.66.81.80 SPI page.

Thank you.

Karl (please delete if you like when read)

a barnstar for you! re. energetically modified cement[edit]

Civility Barnstar Hires.png The Civility Barnstar
...presented to you for your efforts to encourage and demonstrate civility during the energetically modified cement incident, which I observed from the sidelines during its final moments. Congratulations on offering the community such a noble example of civil behavior. Azx2 18:23, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

your message.[edit]

sorry. I thought a minor edit was a small edit that's only changing or adding 1 or 2 words. :o — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kelby2002 (talkcontribs) 16:03, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

Scruffy Wallace[edit]

Hello. You reverted out my addition in the Scruffy Wallace article without discussion. "No need to add name of child" was your justification. Many, many biographies have the names of spouses, relatives, and children. "No need ..." seems subjective and fanciful. --- Wikiklrsc (talk) 06:38, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

@Wikiklrsc: I was using WP:BLPNAME, or my understanding of it. I agree the names are widely used but there is also some strong opinions that they should not be, especially when there is little coverage of the name. I am more then willing to discuss. XFEM Skier (talk) 07:35, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for your kind reply. It's kind of a sketchy item, what to include in personal data in a BLP or even with a deceased personage. Scruffy Wallace's son's name appears in many articles in the media, and likely Mr. Wallace is very proud of his son. So it seemed somewhat appropriate. I admit, I always pause before putting in such information. But this appeared in the public media in legitimate articles and interviews. I'm willing to forego a debate in this case, in deference to your strong feeling in the matter. But I parenthesize this with the plethora of articles containing wives, children, brothers, sisters, let alone aunties. Let it be for now. Sagacious Beatles' words. Thanks and Bests. --- (Bob) Wikiklrsc (talk) 08:19, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

Yellow Jersey Statistics[edit]

A) I hope I've done this right, I've not 'talked' to anyone on wikipedia so if this is wrong do alter. B) Noted you put in a bit about the list being in flux. Profuse apologies if by editing it all Tour I've somehow messed up. Tried to do it properly etc but sometimes errors likely creep in.

ShadowMerckx, you seemed to be doing a good job updating the list. But I noticed that you were not updating the rankings. In my opinion this was fine. Updating them daily would be super annoying without a script. I figured after it finished someone could go back through and update those ranking numbers. Just seemed pointless to do on a daily basis. I just wanted to let people know they were not updated. It was nothing about what you had done. Thank you for doing a good job on the TDF stats throughout the tour. XFEM Skier (talk) 22:43, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

Oh I see. I noticed someone edited a KOM win to Cadel Evans based on him being in polka for one day in 2011. Were we to do that for all riders who'd worn a secondary jersey it might prove a mighty headache! Though I don't think it was you, took the liberty of undoing it as those secondary columns in the ranking list are surely for if they've won the jersey (i.e Froome won the Tour last year, he also wore the KOM jersey for a few stages but didn't win it, thus his reads 1-0-0-0. Anyway, I'm sure all will become clear rankings wise once the Tour ends sunday. My thanks overall and indeed on this signature business, hopefully got it right this time. --ShadowMerckx (talk) 22:58, 25 July 2014 (UTC)
