List of current IPL team rosters listed at Redirects for discussion[edit]


An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect List of current IPL team rosters. Since you had some involvement with the List of current IPL team rosters redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion (if you have not already done so).

Life-cycle greenhouse-gas emissions of energy sources[edit]

As I noticed you on the talk page, please check this out and let me know what you think.

2012 Yale University systematic review and Harmonization

A Yale University review published in the Journal of Industrial Ecology analyzing CO2 life cycle assessment emissions from nuclear power determined that.[1]

"The collective LCA literature indicates that life cycle GHG emissions from nuclear power are only a fraction of traditional fossil sources and comparable to renewable technologies."

It went on to note that for the most common category of reactors, the Light water reactor:

"Harmonization decreased the median estimate for all LWR technology categories so that the medians of BWRs, PWRs, and all LWRs are similar, at approximately 12 g CO2-eq/kWh"

The study noted that differences between emissions scenarios were:

"The electric system was dominated by nuclear (or renewables) and a system dominated by coal can result in a fairly large ranging (from 4 to 22 g CO2-eq/kWh) compared to (30 to 110 g CO2-eq/kWh), respectively."

The study predicted that depending on a number of variables, including how carbon intensive the electricity supply was in the future, and the quality of Uranium ore:

"median life cycle GHG emissions could be 9 to 110 g CO2-eq/kWh by 2050."

Road Case/Flight case merge[edit]

Agreed. I think that someone looking for encyclopaedic information on this topic would not differentiate between a flight or road case and would want all the information available in one article. Indeed, it would make Wikipedia more concise to merge. A visitor may not know there's any difference anyway, and not look for the other article at all.

What is the procedure for getting a merge to happen once it's been flagged on a talk page?Black Stripe (talk) 14 July 2013.

Cuban missile crisis or Cuban Missile Crisis[edit]

There is currently another vote taking place on the talk page of Cuban missile crisis whether to recapitalize the name or keep it in lowercase. You participated in the 2012 vote, and may want to voice an opinion or comment on this one. I'm writing this to the voters from 2012 who may not know about this vote.

ArbCom Elections 2016: Voting now open![edit]

Scale of justice 2.svg Hello, Andrewa. Voting in the 2016 Arbitration Committee elections is open from Monday, 00:00, 21 November through Sunday, 23:59, 4 December to all unblocked users who have registered an account before Wednesday, 00:00, 28 October 2016 and have made at least 150 mainspace edits before Sunday, 00:00, 1 November 2016.

The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to impose binding solutions to disputes between editors, primarily for serious conduct disputes the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the authority to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail.

If you wish to participate in the 2016 election, please review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

The Gifted[edit]

You moved The Gifted to The Gifted (album) without changing the corresponding links. You should really do that when you move a page. Koala15 (talk) 20:07, 25 May 2017 (UTC)

Koala15, which links do you mean? And is that according to a policy or guideline I may have missed, or is it your opinion? If it's your opinion, perhaps it should be proposed and discussed on a more appropriate talk page?
This is a collaboration. The closing admin is expected to do some of the urgent cleaning up (the fair use rationale on the cover art for example) but there's nothing stopping you doing some of the work too! Andrewa (talk) 22:19, 25 May 2017 (UTC)
Don't move the page if you can't finish the work then, and you don't have to be mean about it. Koala15 (talk) 02:06, 26 May 2017 (UTC)
I note you have not answered any of my questions.
You've been here five years and made many constructive edits, but from the above and from recent activity on your user talk page you still seem to have a very poor grasp of how things work here. Andrewa (talk) 04:40, 26 May 2017 (UTC)

Jessie (TV series)[edit]

Hello Andrewa. Just letting you know Jessie (TV series) should in fact be redirected back to the disambib. page at Jessie rather than to Jessie (2011 TV series). As per my original WP:RM proposal, before that can happen though, someone with WP:AWB capability needs to change all the links listed here from Jessie (TV series) to Jessie (2011 TV series). I would do this myself, but I don't have WP:AWB (I use Macs, and AWB is still PC-only...). Thanks! --IJBall (contribstalk) 13:02, 22 June 2017 (UTC)

Yes, I saw that. Never having used AWB I'm not the one to do it I'm afraid, and I'm not sure how to request it either... if you find out, let me know. Andrewa (talk) 18:03, 22 June 2017 (UTC)
Feeder is another DAB that now needs AWB attention IMO. Andrewa (talk) 05:26, 24 June 2017 (UTC)
