Semi-protected edit request on 12 April 2017[edit]

Edit Request: As part of the movement to make scientific information more accessible to the general public, we are exploring wikipedia pages that may not communicate their ideas per the Tone requirements of Wikipedia in the Summary Section. When non-scientific people are curious about these topics, the wikipedia pages are often the first search result in Google. Though I agree that they should be a comprehensive description of the topic, the first two paragraphs can make or break whether that interested individual feels capable of digging deeper into the subject. Many are scared off. And surprisingly, by this page in particular!

Below are some suggestions for simplify the English and making a more inviting experience without compromising the message. Splitting long, comma-ridden sentences into two or three sentences. Removing passive voice where it is not necessary to keep the rigor of the message. Simplify unnecessary jargon.

These are all requested in consistency with the Wikipedia Tone suggestions: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Writing_better_articles#Tone

Example of English Simplification: ORIGINAL-- "The Big Bang theory is the prevailing cosmological model for the universe[1] from the earliest known periods through its subsequent large-scale evolution." SUGGESTED-- "The Big Bang theory is the prevailing model to describe the origin of the universe. This cosmological model also explains the evolution of the universe from the earliest known moments of existence until now. "


Examples of Jargon to rephrase or define: "extrapolated to the highest density regime" -- An attempt to google "highest density regime" yielded no results outside of published papers. ORIGINAL -- "If the known laws of physics are extrapolated to the highest density regime, the result is a singularity which is typically associated with the Big Bang." SUGGESTED -- "The mathematical approach of connecting the two theories of classical mechanics (general relativity and quantum mechanics), results in a singularity. This singularity is typically associated with the initial state of the universe the moment before the Big Bang." Kernelpi (talk) 23:21, 12 April 2017 (UTC)

Not done: it's not clear what changes you want to be made. Please mention the specific changes in a "change X to Y" format.
By placing the template here on the talk page, it's not quite clear what you're after.
  • If you'd like the maintenance template Template:Technical added to the article, please explain exactly why, so as to allow other users to assess potential problem areas.
  • If you simply mean that you think the article is too technical for most readers, please just say so (without using the template). You should feel free to offer general suggestions without making a formal edit request. RivertorchFIREWATER 07:06, 14 April 2017 (UTC)

We offer this article online now and suggest to link to it as a weblink: https://www.theologie-naturwissenschaften.de/startseite/leitartikelarchiv/big-bang.html (The article itself is in English) 193.248.137.120 (talk) 00:00, 1 September 2017 (UTC)

Not done: If you are suggesting this website be added as an external link, Wikipedia articles are not collections of links and this link should not be added to this article. The sources utilized in the article's section on religious interpretations are of high standard for this articles featured quality status, and this website (presumably, your own website), would likely not be an appropriate addition should your request be in the proper format of "change X to Y". – Rhinopias (talk) 01:10, 1 September 2017 (UTC)
