I altered the sentence in the 1992 - Present section which read: "Additionally, all image taking devices are prohibited, and tour members are required to wear Dosimeters." I added that no communication devices are allowed either, and I removed the second half of the sentence which stated that tour participants wear dosimeters. I went on the tour, and the only person on the bus who wore a dosimeter was the guide. Missile test, July 7, 2007.

Support. This is a case where the old name is still very loose in the wild. When someone uses the new name, everybody responds, 'Oh, you mean the test site?' If renamed, the redirects will need to be reviewed. We should retain them for both names but only include the required categories and the NTS ones. Vegaswikian (talk) 20:47, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

Binksternet removed a paragraph about cancer purportedly killing a major part of the cast and crew of a Howard Hughes production of The Conqueror, a movie filmed near St. George, Utah during atmospheric bomb testing in the nearby NTS, with the explanation that it is not mentioned on the cancer.org website. However, since John Wayne, John Hoyt, Susan Hayword, Agnes Moorehead and Dick Powell, the director, have all died of cancer, it has become rather famous as a purported downwinder story. I think it is sufficiently notable to be included in a section entitled The NTS and cancer. I'll restore and edit it. SkoreKeep (talk) 01:14, 7 December 2014 (UTC)
Your restoration didn't fix anything. The problem is two-fold: First is that the bit about the cast dying of cancer is not cited, and it even has an unanswered fact tag. The second problem is that the cancer.org website says nothing about the film crew or their deaths, so putting these two bits together is a violation of WP:SYNTH. With two strikes against it, and in light of the assertion that the "downwinder story" does not stand out from the normal statistics, the whole paragraph is not worth keeping. If you intend to keep the paragraph then you must find someone who says specifically that the cast deaths are roughly equal to the general population. Binksternet (talk) 01:27, 7 December 2014 (UTC)
