Distance to horizon[edit]

The distance to the horizon (in miles) is equal to 1.23 times the square root of the height of your eyes above sea level (in feet). So, if you're sitting on the beach, 5ft above sea level, the horizon is 2.75 miles away.

Dealing with unsourced material[edit]

If an article is unreferenced, you can tag it with the

template, so long as it is not nonsensical or a biography of a living person, in which case request admin assistance.

  • If a claim is doubtful but not harmful, use the [citation needed] template, which will add an inline tag, but remember to go back and remove the claim if no source is produced within a reasonable time.
  • If a claim is doubtful and harmful, remove it from the article. You may want to move it to the talk page and ask for a source, unless it is very harmful or absurd, in which case it should not be posted to the talk page either. Use your common sense.
  • All unsourced and poorly sourced contentious material about living persons must be removed from articles and talk pages immediately. See Wikipedia:Biographies of living persons and Wikipedia:Libel.
  • If a statement can't be verified in the source, use the Failed verification [not in citation given] template.
