Solar cell[edit]

I am restoring the below so that we can continue this thread of conversation.

Information.svg Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did to Solar cell. Your edits appeared to constitute vandalism and have been reverted. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Thank you. User A1 (talk) 14:12, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

Hmm I posted that vandalism notice in regards to this diff, but examining your contributions seems to indicate you are an otherwise productive editor. What was it that you were trying to say? User A1 (talk) 14:18, 22 June 2008 (UTC)


Not sure what you mean by vandalism at all, not constructive? [My edit] was well founded and discussed with Mion before hand, perhaps you should check talk pages before making wild accusations. GG (talk) 14:21, 22 June 2008 (UTC)
The comment that I took most umbrage towards was the comment Wurth Solar successfully commercialised its CIGS technology in 2007 however needed 7 years of pilot production to even dare producing 15 MW of the chemically complex technology[14] -- This could be easily viewed as a negative statement in the direction of Wurth Solar, as it implies that the editor writing this statement has a knowledge that for some reason Wurth Solar was to scared, or risk-averse to perform the manufacturing. This coupled with the renaming of nano-solar to wurth solar seemed like someone was fiddling around with the article in less-than-constructive manner.
I posted the additional notice such that this could be discussed in the current fashion; However I would have appreciated a little more time, as well as a non-blanking of the page, which only after examining the talk page's history did I notice that you replied, the blanking made it more difficult to see your responses such that this could be discussed. Often I won't check wiki for up to 48Hrs. You gave me only 15hrs before you took action -- editors need more time!
Additionally I did see the talk page, but fail to see the direct link between this edit and your discussion with Mion -- perhaps I am being somewhat dense here, but honestly I am not sure what the connection is. Anyway, that said, I did re-revert the change as I believe it takes on an accusatory tone that we really don't want in the article. Feel free to continue the discussion here or to migrate it to the talk page of solar cell. Kind regards, User A1 (talk) 09:18, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
Yep, it was discussed but not agreed on, see Talk:Solar_cell#Revert_by_Mion further discussion on that page plz. Cheers Mion (talk) 11:48, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

Renewable energy in Australia[edit]

Hi GG
and welcome to working on the suite of articles that broadly relate to energy and climate change in Australia including Renewable energy in Australia.
While not commenting on the actual rewrite that you did, could I suggest that for an established article with some authors regularly contributing it might be better to discuss major reorganisations on the talk page and the most frequent contributors talk pages before making wholesale changes. In the circumstances I am not surprised at the reversion.
On content, I think there is some merit to some of your criticisms of the article and will welcome your suggestions on the talk page for improvements in structure and content.
Cheers dinghy (talk) 01:03, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for your message. I also saw your rewriting efforts on Renewable energy in Australia in your sandbox after I was browsing the Category Climate change in Australia I've only skimmed but it looks like you are answering the concerns that some authors had with the earlier version which was reverted. Hopefully they will see it and maybe it can become a consensus rewrite. Thanks for taking the time to do it in a more consultative way. dinghy (talk) 08:35, 7 July 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for the reference to the Greenhouse mafia article. I saw the TV report at the time.
Consider using Wind power in Australia rather than in South Australia in the section about renewable energy power stations. That page then has subpages for the states. Also consider subsection re Feed-in tariffs in Australia under Government policy and initiatives Cheers dinghy (talk) 12:54, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

Request for help concerning energy...[edit]

Hi,

I noticed you listed yourself as a participant of the Energy WikiProject.

There are 2 new outlines in this area that attempt to consolidate Wikipedia's coverage of their respective subjects, gathering and organizing the articles about them into one place and including descriptions for convenience. The purposes of these outlines are to make it easier for readers to survey or review a whole subject, and to choose from Wikipedia's many articles about it.

The new energy outlines are:

Please take a look at them, and....

if you spot missing topics, add them in.
if you can, improve the descriptions.
add missing descriptions.
show parent-offspring relationships (with indents).
fix errors.

For more information about the format and functions of outlines, see Wikipedia:Outlines.

Building outlines of existing material (such as Wikipedia) is called "reverse outlining". Reverse outlines are useful as a revision tool, for identifying gaps in coverage and for spotting poor structuring.

Revising a work with multiple articles (such as Wikipedia) is a little different than revising a paper. But the general principles are the same...

As you develop these outlines, you may notice things about the articles they organize. Like what topics are not adequately covered, better ways to structure and present the material, awkward titles, articles that need splitting, article sections lacking {{Main}} links, etc.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me on my talk page or at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Outlines.

Thank you. Sincerely, The Transhumanist 00:47, 2 June 2012 (UTC)
