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."

Merger Proposal[edit]

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.

Valley of the Kings naming conventions[edit]

Hi Andrewa, I see you were previously involved in the attempt to set forward naming conventions for tombs in the Valley of the Kings (currently listed using the KV designation). It was difficult to follow exactly where this discussion went as it seems to have left the KV62 talk page and moved to a naming convention page. That page is currently inactive and the Village Pump proposal is inactive. I am interested in re-opening the topic for discussion and have started a new threat on the KV62 talk page. I'd appreciate your input either in that discussion or in providing further information on where that discussion lead and how I can contribute further. Thank you.

Dropping You a Line[edit]

Hello, Andrewa. You told me to drop you a line. So here it is. I do sign in the four-tilde way. Why wouldn't I? Anyway, I do not need your help. I know how to edit and contribute. I created my BDE1982 profile by accident. However, as I told you in the talk page for New York—yes, New York, not any of its redirects—this profile, bde1982, is my primary profile and the one I plan to use from now on. I am signing off now, with four tildes.—Bde1982 22:18, 8 September 2016 (UTC)

Then there is something very strange going on, user:bde1982. Your sig above isn't formatted as it should be. Andrewa (talk) 22:55, 8 September 2016 (UTC)
Okay. I will try again.—Bde1982 (talk) 23:07, 8 September 2016 (UTC)
Then that is even stranger. It worked that time. What did you do differently? Andrewa (talk) 23:13, 8 September 2016 (UTC)
I went in my preferences and unchecked the checkbox under "Signatures".—Bde1982 (talk) 23:16, 8 September 2016 (UTC)
OK. You've been overriding the standard signature with one that doesn't contain the expected links. Maybe we should update wp:sign to tell people not to do that.
wp:sign#Customizing how everyone sees your signature does read in part When customizing your signature, please keep the following in mind: A customised signature should make it easy to identify the username, to visit the user's talk-page, and preferably user page... (my emphasis). But you obviously either didn't read that, or didn't understand it. It's a bit buried and obscure.
How could we make it clearer? Andrewa (talk) 23:30, 8 September 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 12[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Union Church (Australia), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Trust (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Andrewa. This message is intended to notify administrators of important changes to the protection policy.

Extended confirmed protection (also known as "30/500 protection") is a new level of page protection that only allows edits from accounts at least 30 days old and with 500 edits. The automatically assigned "extended confirmed" user right was created for this purpose. The protection level was created following this community discussion with the primary intention of enforcing various arbitration remedies that prohibited editors under the "30 days/500 edits" threshold to edit certain topic areas.

In July and August 2016, a request for comment established consensus for community use of the new protection level. Administrators are authorized to apply extended confirmed protection to combat any form of disruption (e.g. vandalism, sock puppetry, edit warring, etc.) on any topic, subject to the following conditions:

  • Extended confirmed protection may only be used in cases where semi-protection has proven ineffective. It should not be used as a first resort.
  • A bot will post a notification at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard of each use. MusikBot currently does this by updating a report, which is transcluded onto the noticeboard.
Please review the protection policy carefully before using this new level of protection on pages. Thank you.
This message was sent to the administrators' mass message list. To opt-out of future messages, please remove yourself from the list. 17:47, 23 September 2016 (UTC)
