NPoV[edit]

Hello! Wikipedia articles must adopt a neutral point of view, which (combined with the need to write in the style of an encyclopædia), means that adding evaluative terms like "stunning" to mentions of DVDs, etc., isn't allowed. --Mel Etitis (Μελ Ετητης) 17:34, 23 July 2005 (UTC)

Exponential growth[edit]

Hello. Two small comments:

  • If you write "See also technological singularity", I don't think the initial "T" should be capitalized. You don't need to capitalize a letter merely because it's the first letter of a link; the first letter, unlike the later letters, is case-insensitive.
  • The statement is misleading in that it may leave an impression in the reader's mind that exponential growth leads to singularities. In fact, such a singularity -- a vertical asymptote -- can happen only if the growth is not exponential. It definitely has to be faster than exponential growth to have such a singularity. And here's the really serious problem: the way you phrased it could actually play into the popular error that "exponential growth" merely means extremely or surprisingly fast growth, whereas a major purpose of the article is to say that that is incorrect.

Theology[edit]

See my reply to your statement on the Theology talk page. Thanks...KHM03 16:05, 20 August 2005 (UTC)

Re:List of countries by system of government[edit]

Yes, but please do not make dramatic mass deletions of content until you have discussed on the talk page. Note that the article lists "system of government" and not "form of government". --Jiang 11:58, 21 August 2005 (UTC)

Portal:Wissenschaft[edit]

You added a link on Portal:Science to de:Portal:Wissenschaft, which is a page that does not exist. I've looked at the list of portals on de: and it does not seem that there is one that corresponds to Portal:Science. If you do come across it, please do add the correct link. Thanks! - Samsara 16:31, 9 January 2006 (UTC)

Area 51[edit]

Over at Area 51 you added "Since 1982, the Northrop Tacit Blue experimental JSTARS aircraft was tested here." I'm confused, because Tacit Blue is a stealth technology demonstrator and JSTARS is an entirely unrelated command-and-control aircraft. Which do you mean (or do you mean both)? Also, can you site a source which says these aircraft were tested at Groom? -- Finlay McWalter | Talk 18:55, 10 January 2006 (UTC)

European Council[edit]

The European Council is not a distinct body. Your possibly thinking of the Council of Europe. josh (talk) 15:57, 27 September 2006 (UTC)

From the EU site

The European Council gathers together the Heads of State or Government of the Member States of the European Union and the President of the Commission. It came into being in 1974 and was given formal status by the Single European Act.

The bottom of the article also mentions the Council of Europe stating that it is seperate from the EU itself. josh (talk) 16:05, 27 September 2006 (UTC)

Hello Arado,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Intersection assistant for deletion, because it seems to be promotional, rather than an encyclopedia article.

Proper edit labeling[edit]

Dear User Arado. Perhaps you've never had the opportunity to familiarize yourself with the appropriate use of the Minor edit check box when editing Wikipedia articles. Please take note of the following content from the Wikipedia Manual of Style page providing instructions on its use:

The guidelines are quite clear. Replacing an errant "their" with a proper "there" when such a spelling/grammar error has been made, eliminating a duplicate comma,, created by an obvious typo, or restoring an accidentally truncated > at the end of a close reference tag lost in a previous editor's cut-and-paste are all examples. More than that the edit is not minor and the Minor edit designation should not be used. Yours, Wikiuser100 (talk) 20:45, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

Also: Please use edit summaries for all of your edits[edit]

Agree with the post above regarding misuse of the "minor" edit tag, plus:

Information icon Hi there! Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia.

When editing an article on Wikipedia, you will see a small field labeled "Edit summary" shown under the main edit box. It looks like this:

Edit summary (Briefly describe your changes)

 

Please be sure to provide a summary of every edit you make, even if you write only the briefest of summaries. The summaries are very helpful to people browsing an article's history.

Edit summary content is visible in:

Please use the edit summary to explain your reasoning for the edit, or a summary of what the edit changes. Thanks! Softlavender (talk) 23:43, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

Anchors?[edit]

Curious about all the anchors you are adding to various articles. I can see the redirects, but the others are confusing... Montanabw(talk) 05:16, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

I have the impression that you just do not want to let me contribute to Wikipedia. The anchors are there so that when you click on the redirects, you are taken exactly to the place where you want to read. I didnt put anchors just for fun. I created Safety stirrup and Western-style stirrup, and the anchors are there to get you exactly where you wanna go, and not scroll the whole article until you find them. The courbette redirect was working perfectly fine and taking the reader directly to the courbette concept in the article, but you changed it. Because you removed the anchor, safety stirrup doesnt take you to the safety stirrup, but you have to manually scroll down until you find it. The anchors i added do not affect in any negative way the reading experience, since they are hidden, they only take the reader to the exact concepts in the articles. If we had separate articles on levade or courbette, we wouldnt need those anchors. I only created anchors where there are redirects, otherwise i would not have put them there. Wikipedia is not my playground, if that was your impression. Please tell me how safety stirrup or other anchors reroute within the same article--Arado (talk) 05:20, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
No, I was just very confused. I didn't realize you created two new articles. I guess this makes sense and they are invisible. There's an argument that safety stirrup could be a search and even a stand-alone article some day, I doubt anyone will search for "western style stirrup" ever. We could split the difference on that one. For Courbette, the dab police only want one link per entry, so I guess you'd have to put your link there. Montanabw(talk) 06:05, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

Handling subsidiary articles[edit]

. Whether this helps anyone much is a moot point. We already have a camouflage navigation bar at the end of the articles; I'll think about whether we need to organise it a little more hierarchically. All the best, Chiswick Chap (talk) 19:08, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

Project Nike in NIke-X[edit]

I'm not sure it's appropriate to link to Project Nike in the Nike-X article. Project Nike really refers only to Ajax, a SAM. Maury Markowitz (talk) 15:56, 3 March 2015 (UTC)

If you think it is inapproproiate, you can put it in the see also section at the end of the article.--Arado (talk) 15:57, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
Yes, that makes more sense. Also, the Project Nike article will go away once I have fully integrated it into Ajax and Hercules. Maury Markowitz (talk) 16:03, 3 March 2015 (UTC)

Sorry[edit]

Sorry for any confusion on the V-2 page, I wasn't trying to change your comments, just to and the RM info to it. It's too bad that Andy had to throw his weight around, but I've had issues with him before ever since I was involved in getting a friend of his banned from the project. Sad. - BilCat (talk) 09:41, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

Don't worry, i immediately understood why you edited my comments, i' m less formal, even though i am from Germany. I understand there is some animosity between you and him. I view Wikipedia as a hobby, so if someone reverts my edits, i wont immediately argue with him/her.--Arado (talk) 09:52, 7 March 2015 (UTC)
I only added it because the other user commented on it. This way the move gets listed at WP:RM. I'm going to stop watching the page anyway. Not worth the grief! And thanks. - BilCat (talk) 09:57, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

More Audi A8 photos ?[edit]

Hello Arado,

After I saw you made this edit I wanted to say that if you think there are other places where images from that same car would be useful, then you are welcome to tell me, then I can go and take the images. Best regards, Lklundin (talk) 13:00, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

Redirects[edit]

Hi, I reverted your edit to Laser. See WP:NOTBROKEN. Links to redirects are not a problem and do not need to be "fixed". Redirected links are often better than piped links.--Srleffler (talk) 18:07, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

I reverted a bunch of other edits with the same problem.--Srleffler (talk) 18:31, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

Per the above two warnings, please stop bypassing redirects. Similarly to Wikipedia:Redirect#Do not "fix" links to redirects that are not broken, changing links in running prose from a redirect to the article title can be damaging and can worsen prose flow. DrKay (talk) 18:25, 24 July 2017 (UTC)

Aircraft camouflage[edit]

Would you be interested to help take this article to GA? It is by far the most poorly-cited of all the camouflage articles (in fact, it's a shameful OR-fest). It would be really nice to have a robust article on this topic - just needs a knowledgeable enthusiast or two to get stuck into it.

Ah, sorry. "Good Article" status. All it means is that the article has to be decently written and properly supported by evidence (like references to published books).

Reference on SpaceX for a section you wrote[edit]

Hello Arado! Thank you for your contributions to spaceflight articles, you're always adding great content.

On this edit that you made about the very early foundations of SpaceX, you introduced a reference name "spectrum" but there appears to not be an actual reference, causing a citation error. Do you know the actual citation so that the reference section doesn't have a "Cite Error" reference. Thanks for all your contributions! Appable (talk) 17:00, 4 June 2015 (UTC)

Sorry, i think refill made a mistake when doing the references and that is how it got this ref name. there is only one reference anyway, which is available in the text, i don't remember the 9th reference, so i will delete the ref name from the article.--Arado (talk) 17:10, 4 June 2015 (UTC)
Now i remember, i copied the entire links from the Elon Musk article, where there is a spectrum reference in the text, but in the SpaceX article that is not present, so that's the reason for the error.--Arado (talk) 17:12, 4 June 2015 (UTC)

Is there a real "market" for space launch in Europe?[edit]

Hey Arado. Good addition to Space launch market competition to help show some of the European press on what's going on with ESA/Arianespace/Airbus Defence, etc. vis a vis international competition from SpaceX low prices etc.

I wonder, if you have European connections (and can speak other languages better than me), is there any sort of space launch market competition that is even possible inside Europe, or inside any of the European nations? What is covered in the press over there? The US events in private spaceflight since 2000 got started with changes to US law back in the 1980s and 1990s. I was at a corporate retreat in 1985 (sort of a Futurist perspectives thing) where a speaker was brought in to tell us about the new initiatives in private (what? we said.), yes, private, spaceflight. In the event, the market process, including the multitude of failed private ventures prior to SpaceX's remarkable success, took quite a bit of time to unroll.

Would it even be possible for competition to emerge within the EU? Or is the EU-wide monopoly provider of EADS (now Airbus Defence) and operations by Arianespace, and other rules and regulations, really prevent other private entities from doing in Europe what SpaceX is doing in the US?

At any rate, trying to understand this so we can make the Wikipedia better, and get more intra-national (and intra-EU/regional/supranational) competition covered. Right now, we're mostly seeing European competition only from the government-funded providers. Cheers. N2e (talk) 02:50, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

No, there is no legally prescribed monopoly in the EU by Airbus/ESA. But Europeans are much more into government controlling economic sectors of critical national importance, like space launch capability.--Arado (talk) 17:10, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

Launch cost[edit]

A tag has been placed on Launch cost, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a redirect from an implausible typo, or other unlikely search term.

Your edits and summaries[edit]

Your edits to Wikipedia are much appreciated. Wikipedia needs more editors like you to improve its articles.

One request: it would be very helpful to other editors if you were to leave a brief summary of what change you have made in the edit summary box near the bottom of the edit page. This saves reviewers having to examine the diff of your edit to see what you have changed. This time would be better spent reviewing edits from those who prefer to vandalise Wikipedia. It is a fact that those who are not here to build an encyclopedia rarely leave edit summaries and consequently, reviewers are almost guaranteed to review your edits. An edit summary would save us the trouble. Thank you. I B Wright (talk) 10:39, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

Trivial "pursuits"[edit]

Hey there, Arado! And for what it's worth, and for the record, you are not the first editor that DieSwartzPunkt has WP:WIKIHOUNDed. As that user's Talk page continually gets "blanked" rather than archived, this pattern can be difficult to notice, but the edit history is there nonetheless and I occasionally like to check in and see what's been happening. Honestly, I am surprised that he hasn't gotten himself banned yet, but I suppose there's time enough for that. In any case, know that despite the well-manicured talk page record to the contrary, you are not the first target of such an inappropriate pursuit (and probably will not be the last). Cheers! KDS4444Talk 15:59, 22 September 2015 (UTC)

The only person around here who is currently Wikihounding is your self (as you have freely admitted to doing in your post - perhaps I should raise a case and get you blocked as I have done many times before with other problem editors). Also you are certainly in line for a complaint for harassment. But we have had this discussion before haven't we? You have clearly forgotten that the admins stated that I was right and you were wrong.
Arado has the very irritating habit of rarely leaving edit summaries which makes it difficult for anyone to review his edits which any and every editor here has the right to do (as was made clear to you by the admins). Equally: I have the right, as does every editor, of removing old and stale discussions (immediately without response in the case of anything from you as you have proven such a pain in the arse in the past). DieSwartzPunkt (talk) 16:59, 23 September 2015 (UTC)

WP:NOTBROKEN[edit]

With regards to this edit this edit and other similar edits, please see WP:NOTBROKEN and the reasons for not changing such redirects. --PBS (talk) 12:22, 10 September 2017 (UTC)

I came here to say the same thing. Also, some titles are not appropriate in running prose, i.e. Po (river). As long as the link is correct, it doesn't matter if it is a redirect. —Srnec (talk) 23:32, 10 September 2017 (UTC)
I see that two other editors, user:Srleffler and user:DrKay, have made the same point to you on this talk page in the section #Redirects in March 2015 and July of this year. I hope you will accept the consensus on this and stop doing it. -- PBS (talk) 11:19, 11 September 2017 (UTC)

EDSUM[edit]

Please use edit summaries. Edits like the one you made to John R. Bolton could look like vandalism to editors that aren't checking up to ensure correctness. If you state why you're making the change, it would help us AGF and move on rather than stop to investigate what you're doing. Chris Troutman (talk) 23:22, 9 December 2017 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Category:Armored fighting vehicles of South Korea[edit]

A tag has been placed on Category:Armored fighting vehicles of South Korea requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section C1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the category has been empty for seven days or more and is not a disambiguation category, a category redirect, a featured topics category, under discussion at Categories for discussion, or a project category that by its nature may become empty on occasion.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Proposed deletion of Briffaud GB-6[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Briffaud GB-6 has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No evidence of notability - no sources, nothing on French Wikipedia for aircraft or manufacturer.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. PamD 10:56, 18 January 2018 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 17[edit]

An automated process has detected that when you recently edited SRVL, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Lift (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

(Opt-out instructions.) --DPL bot (talk) 09:41, 17 March 2018 (UTC)

Navigation[edit]

When you create a page with a title which needs a disambiguation, such as Badr-1 (rocket), please remember to provide an access route from the basic title Badr-1 . Sometimes it needs a hatnote on the page at that title, sometimes an entry on a disambiguation page. Either way, without it the reader who needs your article won't easily find it, and some future editor might accidentally create a duplicate at a variant title like Badr-1 (rocket launcher). I've added a hatnote this time. Thanks. PamD 17:56, 13 May 2018 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for May 29[edit]

An automated process has detected that when you recently edited National Space Council, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page David Thompson (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).
