re: Megathrust Earthquakes[edit]

Hi, what you'd wrote was that the anticipated rupture of the San Andreas Fault had been referred to as a megathrust earthquake, and that is not exactly true. Sometimes the term megaquake is used in the media to refer to very large earthquakes (one of the Los Angeles Times articles you linked from my talk page used the term), but seismologists and geologists do not use the term that way. That's the reason it was removed as incorrect. Thanks for asking and sorry I didn't explain myself then. This place runs at a pretty high speed and was probably just working through my watchlist at a quick pace and just used the template. Dawnseeker2000 01:48, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

re: Megathrust Earthquakes[edit]

Dawnseeker2000, actually I think I only mentioned that the term "The big one" sometimes referred to the anticipated rupture of the San Andreas. I do not think I claimed it was a mega thrust Earthquake. The term "the big one" in wikipedia redirects to the megathrust article, and so I think it's appropriate to mention the San Andreas rupture when defining the term "the big one".

OK, gotcha now. I still see a problem with that section in general though. No citations at all. Preferably we'd like to have only the best quality sources there, so if at all possible please locate one. Sorry for the misunderstanding. Dawnseeker2000 13:44, 20 June 2013 (UTC)

re: Olivia Dunham[edit]

Hello Ruby, could you tell me the specific information you object to so that I can review it and make it more in line with Wikipedia's guidelines?

Hi there. This edit in particular added quite a bit of uncited information (and you placed it on top of a paragraph that was already well cited). Please see WP:RS for more information. Please let me know if you have any questions. I'm always happy to meet more Fringe fans, and I would love to see you contributing content (but only per Wikipedia guidelines).
