ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability 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, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Saul Perlmutter[edit]

I am going to modify your edit on the Saul Perlmutter page that changes "better contrain" to "monitor". The latter suggests to me that the project is watching in real time how the expansion rate changes moment to moment. However, the experiment is looking into the distance to more precisely measure what the acceleration was at times in the past. If you feel that I have made an error, let's discuss it here or on the article's talk page. If you have better language than either "monitor" or "contrain" please edit the article accordingly.

The word I replaced was actually "constrain". However, I like your latest edit which is now much clearer about the goal of the project. Blurryman (talk) 16:53, 4 April 2016 (UTC)

Wow, I managed to misspell "constrain" twice. I had even had my coffee by then! 𝕃eegrc (talk) 19:08, 4 April 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for clearing that up: "contrain" had me scratching my head and scrabbling through my dictionaries for a while! Blurryman (talk) 22:45, 4 April 2016 (UTC)

July 2016 - Recent Edit: Great American Railroad Journeys[edit]

This is to let you know that I have reverted your edit. The current setup with the Lead is fine, though I believe you amended it in regards to the recent repeats; if so, please state that the episodes originally aired as 30 minute episodes in a second paragraph of the lead, before stating about the repeats and the setup with them. GUtt01 (talk) 16:59, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

I don't quite understand your objection to my changes, which were inserted specifically to describe the original broadcasts, in February 2016, over fifteen 30-minute episodes, just as I wrote. I made no reference to the repeat showings which are still current as I write. Incidentally, this current showing consists of eight 60-minute episodes, and it is noticeable that 15x30m does NOT equal 8x60m, which I believe is explained by the creation of an extended version of the original Episode 3 "Brooklyn to Montauk". These new episodes are described on the BBC website as 'reversions', but that should really be 're-versioned'. (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b07mdvbd/episodes/player). Blurryman (talk) 18:49, 28 July 2016 (UTC)
@Blurryman: Okay, that's understandable of what you were including, now that I see your reasoning. But surely, you could have placed it in the initial paragraph that detailed out Series 1, and not in the Lead, because we can't confirm the length of episodes in it, until we at least have had another series. When we do, we can state the original broadcast length. I just updated the article, so perhaps you can amend what I added in by finding a reference to what the BBC described, other than from the BBC iPlayer? GUtt01 (talk) 19:12, 28 July 2016 (UTC)
Agree with you on the placing of this information. I've added a reference to the BBC's website for the new showing of the programme, and amended part of your entry to clarify the change to what was the third 30-minute episode of the first showing but was the second 1-hour episode of the repeat showing.
