Radiocarbon dating[edit]

Hi. Your assistance at Radiocarbon dating would be greatly appreciated. There appear to be continued efforts to remove mention that some groups dispute the accuracy of carbon dating. All removals are done on the basis that it is not disputed by scientists, and that anything "unscientific" does not belong in the article. I have yet to see a wikipedia policy that states only facts with scientific basis are allowed to be included in articles. As the dispute is currently on-going (on the article's talk page), I have attempted to add the NPOV tag to the article, but now I find this also is being removed, so any mention of indication of a dispute is also being censored now! If you could please help by adding the tag whenever you see it remopved, this would certainly help me to avoid breaching the 3RR rule. Many thanks, --Rebroad 14:54, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. While I do feel that the controversy deserves more attention in the article (or a companion article), I prefer to let this situation calm down right now. There are people with very strong feelings on both sides of the argument, and tempers are running hot. Further edits to the section will certainly be taken as provocation, and will probably result in an edit war and the involvement of editors. If you have the time and knowledge, it might be constructive to prepare a section like the one at Evolution#Social_and_religious_controversies and post it in whole (not small bits at a time), as fully fleshed out sections (with many references) have a far greater chance of survival. Sadly, I have neither the time, nor the knowledge to do so myself. Great Cthulhu 19:03, 13 February 2007 (UTC)


Royal Dutch Shell[edit]

I have reverted your change on RDS revenues, sorry. The reason was inconsistent figures. The 2006 Fortune figure giving 3rd place ($306bn) is inconsistent with Shell's 2006 figure quoted ($318bn) from its accounts, and in the article and F500 looks prior year (year ending March 2006). The article has to use consistent figures so either we change the whole article to older figures or we keep the comparison to the time period given. --BozMo talk 12:40, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

That's fair. Good call and thanks for the feedback. Great Cthulhu 15:32, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Lum the Mad (Greyhawk), suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. If you agree with the deletion of the article, and you are the only person who has made substantial edits to the page, please add {{db-author}} to the top of Lum the Mad (Greyhawk). « ₣M₣ » 18:23, 13 January 2008 (UTC)
