Template links[edit]

WP:NOPIPE and WP:NOTBROKEN aside, a redirect in a navbox is broken, as it does not display correctly on the target page. The link is supposed to be a bold 'non-link' on the page in question - if the link is a redirect, it doesn't do that, but instead is still is an active link, making it look like there is a different page for the subject. - The Bushranger One ping only 10:59, 6 January 2016 (UTC)

Ok, so one of them is still wrong.[edit]

I refer to this RV. "commenced construction of the plutonium semiworks, codenamed X-10" or "[X-10] was the world's second artificial nuclear reactor". The lede bounces back and forth. I don't believe the chemical extraction side was referred to as X-10, and since that is definitely part of the semi works then my edit was correct, or the rest of the lede is wrong. So which is it? Maury Markowitz (talk) 20:29, 21 January 2016 (UTC)

The first one is right. X-10 was the codename for the plutonium semiworks, of which the reactor was part. So what do we have?
"The X-10 Graphite Reactor was the world's second artificial nuclear reactor"
"In September 1942, Compton asked a physicist, Martin D. Whitaker, to form a skeleton operating staff for X-10"
"By March 1944, there were some 1,500 people working at X-10"
"Exterior of the Graphite Reactor at the X-10 site"
"the cost of construction at X-10" (Clear here that we are talking about the entire facility)
"X-10 operated as a plutonium production plant until January 1945"
"X-10 supplied the Los Alamos Laboratory with the first significant samples of plutonium"
"The X-10 chemical separation plant"
"The X-10 Graphite Reactor was shut down on November 4, 1963"
"One reactor of similar design to the X-10 Graphite Reactor is still in operation today"
I think the wording is consistent. Hawkeye7 (talk) 23:03, 21 January 2016 (UTC)
So the chemical plant beside the reactor is also known as "the X-10 Graphite Reactor"? Maury Markowitz (talk) 23:23, 21 January 2016 (UTC)
No, it is the "X-10 chemical separation plant". (Am I missing something here?) Hawkeye7 (talk) 04:09, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

Salamaua–Lae campaign[edit]

G'day Hawkeye, I've been trying to reference the Salamaua–Lae campaign article this weekend, but have come up blank with the base development information in the Aftermath section of the article. Given the sources you were able to bring to the Battle of Milne Bay article, I was wondering if you might be able to check your library to see if you can add the last couple of references. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time. Cheers, AustralianRupert (talk) 08:53, 24 January 2016 (UTC)

Edited your nom[edit]

[24] I'm assuming you didn't actually memorize Russian poetry by a small Iranian village. But notifying you, just in case you actually did. (I guess there could have been an anonymous Russian poet known only for living there, so becoming known by...) --GRuban (talk) 22:57, 25 January 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for that. In the wake of the Vietnam War, the educational authorities decided that the Cold War was lost, and that we should all learn Russian. I found it a difficult subject, not least because I missed a term as a result of a surgical operation. You could pass by passing the exam, or by memorising and reciting a Pushkin poem. So that's what we did. Hawkeye7 (talk) 07:49, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

I've opposed your bid to become an admin, with a degree of regret and awkwardness. My best to you all the same. Tony (talk) 13:19, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

Sorry here, too, for not voting, but I won't be voting in any 2016 RfAs because of my work with relevant RfCs. (I suspect we'll be seeing several more big ones this year.) Best of luck, Hawkeye (and Tony, good to see you here). - Dank (push to talk) 16:15, 1 February 2016 (UTC)
Thanks Dan. One thing that is worth a second look is what bits are needed for ArbCom. There was a couple of hasty RfCs when it was thought that I might win a seat; but it looks now like it has been shelved until next year. Hawkeye7 (talk) 21:30, 1 February 2016 (UTC)
I've considered closing RfCs related to Arbcom, mostly because what Arbcom does and doesn't do has a big impact on RfA (as you may have recently noticed). But I'm probably out of my depth there. - Dank (push to talk) 22:39, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

Per your inquiry, the answer was probably in part here. But I'll be trying again, probably next spring or so...maybe summer, probably after the Belmont Stakes and the flurry of horse article editing surrounding the triple crown races concludes. I'd most certainly by interested in your input on how I might do a better job next time or if there are ways I could handle things better. Montanabw(talk) 23:04, 1 February 2016 (UTC)
I am in total agreement with the above sentiments. It was my pleasure to support your candidacy. I don't quite understand the process or why things work out the way they do, but I tend to believe that timing has a lot to do with it. Atsme📞📧 23:59, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

Working at DYK absent the full toolset[edit]

I wonder if the DYK-relevant pages could be set to template-protection, and you could leverage your template-editor rights? Do you think that would fly, from a technical or consensus perspective? Or am I completely off the mark... –xenotalk 02:46, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

I don't think so. Why don't you do it? Hawkeye7 (talk) 10:34, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
Do what? Certainly not present the argument for it, I'm a relatively unknown around those parts. Which pages would need to be template-protected instead of fully-protected for you to work there? –xenotalk 13:50, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
I don't know if we can do that, as the protection comes via the cascading protection from the main page. I don't know enough about such things? I guess it could be request to lift that cascading protection? If possible, it would definitely be a very good idea at looking at. Harrias talk 17:41, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
Yes, it would involved lifting the cascading protection on the main page, so I don't think it is practical. By "do it", I meant "approve the DYK hooks". Hawkeye7 (talk) 20:16, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
We could probably change the cascading full-protection to cascading template-editor protection, but the question then becomes - is the community comfortable opening up editing of the mainpage to another 122 users who weren't specifically vetted for such a role? –xenotalk 00:21, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

Not sure if that's appropriate[edit]

Maybe I'm being overly paranoid, I can see how this could have happened unintentionally. But I don't think it's entirely appropriate to notify/thank among others the 4 bureaucrats ([39] [40] [41] [42]) who were positive towards your nomination, because they are still in the process of deciding the result. Anyway, I just felt I had to get that off my chest, and I don't want to cause any hassle. Feel free to remove this comment after you have read it. -- intgr [talk] 11:47, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) Hawkeye thanked Avi for his work on the RFA, not his support (which Avi did not offer in any case), and the other three crats have recused themselves from the discussion, so the point, however well-meant, seems moot. Cheers, Ian Rose (talk) 12:11, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

I don't make this offer to everyone[edit]

You're a great editor who's feeling rather cheesed off at the moment. I get it. RfX is tough, even for successful candidates.

Take the advice on my usertalk and come chat with me in March. Because if you choose to, you can turn this around, and I'll happily turn this into a bluelink with a nomination in a few months if you do. --Dweller (talk) 13:58, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

Retirement..... really?[edit]

So what if you don't get the position as an admin? Think of all of the readers you help out/make smile when you improve articles on the topics that interest you. Shouldn't that be enough motivation? - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 14:20, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

Please don't leave over it. Take some time out if you need to but don't leave for good. You'll be sorely missed :)--5 albert square (talk) 20:33, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
It would be more motivating if I got some feedback from them. As it is, all I can see is page hit counts. But thanks. Hawkeye7 (talk) 20:47, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
+1. Did you really join the project just to be an admin? Surely you joined to edit articles? --GRuban (talk) 20:58, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
I did. But I do everything. Without I admin toolbox, I am constantly stymied. Hawkeye7 (talk) 23:37, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
We once had such a feedback mechanism, but it had flaws. Maybe this is something we should look back into? Mz7 (talk) 22:14, 2 February 2016 (UTC)


Back in 2007, one RfA was basically not deemed successful with 201 supports and 71 opposes, but the usual RfA in those days had far more votes than any recent ones - even with auto-notification to editors. The issue then was (get this) how opposed the candidate was to off-Wiki sites that must not be named <g>. Collect (talk) 14:44, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

Your RfA results[edit]

I regret to inform you that your recent request for adminship was closed as "no consensus to promote". I encourage you to review the comments in the discussion and on the talk page to see if there are areas in which you could make changes. This may allow you to have a successful RfA in the future.

Export hell seidel steiner.png Sorry about the result, but thanks for bearing "the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune" for the betterment of Wikipedia. And thanks for your note. --Jules (Mrjulesd) 19:04, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

To cut the b.s., I think the reason for the failure was because you were in the lower half of the 65-75% discretionary zone, it's probably as simple as that. Whatever the 'crats might say it's basically a numbers game. A no consensus result means you could try again, and probably pass, in six months time. Now I do think you could answered the questions a little differently, please contact me if you like for my views on a strategy. But if you've had enough of RfAs I understand, you have to be pretty brave to put yourself through that. Which makes you a bigger person than many. --Jules (Mrjulesd) 19:17, 2 February 2016 (UTC)


Sorry to see it went the way it did. I didn't expect it to be plain sailing but I wouldn't have nominated you if I didn't think you had a chance, nor if I didn't think you'd be a good admin. Okay, you got a lot of opposition; some of it we foresaw, some of it we didn't. There is certainly a feeling that you haven't learnt from the evens of four years ago, or haven't moved on, or haven't shown enough contrition. But remember very nearly two hundred of your peers supported you. That's quite an incredible turnout. The lengthy and well thought-out rationales from many of those editors, among them some of the most respected editors on Wikipedia, show that you have the trust of a significant majority of the community. Beyond that, even most of the opposers spoke highly of you and praised your work and your dedication to Wikipedia. To me, it says a lot about you that even many of your detractors went out of their way to praise your contribution. Besides, most admin work is boring grunt work that's forgotten about in seconds whereas you article work will be around in one form or another for decades. People will remember Wikipedia as an encyclopaedia—not necessarily a perfect one, but one that could at least provide a decent overview of any subject imaginable—not for all the vandals that were blocked, and that's down in no small part to you. So my advice would be not to focus on the final tally, but to dust yourself off and do what you do best. And if you find yourself in Blighty, let me know and I'll buy you a drink. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 22:20, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

Thanks Harry. I'd really like to take you up on that. Hawkeye7 (talk) 23:40, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

And your retirement plan is......????[edit]

I'm sorry the RFA didn't work out. This time. You're the reason I got my first FA. Absolutely the reason, because you encouraged me to go forward with the effort. I was at the point of completely throwing in the towel. If it wasn't for your being there at the exact correct moment to encourage me, I'd still be diddling around in the shadows somewhere. And besides that, you're a coordinator at WP MH - fulfill the term. Your content contributions on the Manhattan Project have been somewhat extraordinary. So, what's more important - the small handful who opposed at RFA, or those educators out there who are quite probably using your articles to teach students about the Manhattan Project. Carry on and try again later. We salute you for your tireless contributions. — Maile (talk) 22:58, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

I'm in the embryonic stages of development - just now working on the header but I'm not very well-versed on changing syntax in templates, so I will probably just create a page header of my own design. I'm not sure why the TP isn't connecting or what categories to include or .... well, any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated. Atsme📞📧 03:07, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

Oh, and what I'd like to do is establish a 5 person PAC = Project Accuracy Coordinators who will oversee the project, and vet the fact-check promotion candidates who apply. This project is actually the foundation for a much bigger plan I proposed to WMF during their current community consultation re: their "Reach strategy. My suggestion was in regards to protection and promotion of articles that have passed stringent reviews and accuracy checks (and will carry our project seal which you can see at the project page). I tested the waters a tiny bit at Drmies TP, and now I'm hoping to get a good team together comprising content creators/FA participants/reviewers for PAC. Let me know if you're interested.

Hey Hawkeye, do you have some spare time to perform a source review on Ride the Lightning for formatting and reliability? The FA nomination is here. I usually wait for the FA coordinators to make a request at the project's talk page, but I want to get pass the image/source procedures as quickly as possible, so I can focus on other issues. Thanks in advance.--Retrohead (talk) 23:04, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

Wondering if you can tick off this one? It looks like it doesn't need a QPQ, so hopefully an easy affair! Jolly Ω Janner 06:04, 7 February 2016 (UTC)
