Is the name "Lintott" taken? In Sweden "lintott" is something you call children with blonde hair. It comes from "lin" (flax) and "tott" (not sure, but I think it's something like "tuft" as in "a bunch of"). // Liftarn
The existence of black holes
My edits are to ensure that a layman reading the article will not jump to conclusions about black holes. They are regarded as theory, and their existence has yet to be proven. The unproven mathematics are another large part of why their existence hasn't been verified yet. Hawking himself declared that some of his ideas about the theory to be wrong.
Black holes continue to be the popularly "accepted" explanation, but their existence is far from proven. The theory can be tweaked to match observational data, which in result may "indicate" that the theory is true, even if it is no closer to being proven than before. My intent is simply to encourage critical thinking, and not to not allow people to jump to conclusions without knowing all the facts.
Thanks for the link. I will have to read through and see what I can make of it. I am not a professional scientist of any sort, all I have is my mind and an interest in the field.
Thanks also for not reverting my edits. I am, as much as possible, trying to maintain a NPOV. ~ste

Wikipedia decision making
(In response to Special:Diff/753215271/753320081) Our basic decision procedure is discussion until WP:CONSENSUS is established. WP:Policies and guidelines document our prior discussions, so that is the first stop when not sure. Nothing wrong with asking first, but one of our guidelines is WP:BOLD, so going ahead is fine, too. If someone objects, discussion begins. If something is unclear, feel free to ask anyone, including me. I'm only a minor contributor, but I've been around long enough to know how to find the right wizards in this asylum. ;) Paradoctor (talk) 15:53, 6 December 2016 (UTC)
- Thanks - I've been around a long while, so know the basics. A reminder is always appreciated though. Chrislintott (talk) 10:53, 8 December 2016 (UTC)
- If that was you being grumpy, you should work for the UN.
- I suggest waiting a week or so after the last substantial comment to your proposal, it gives the less active editors a chance to get involved. Not expecting serious opposition, but I've been known to be in error before. :P Paradoctor (talk) 20:56, 12 December 2016 (UTC)
