Thanks for correcting my edit on the International Space Station. Sloppy of me... kencf0618 (talk)

Huntster Thanks for the prompt revert

I was just hoping there would be a fair review of sites without it seeming like there is a bias towards/ against a particular domain. Would appreciate your review and action towards Dubaifaqs and topuniversities as they have both received an excess of over 200 links each without anything being done about it for a number of years. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Samuraitechy (talkcontribs) 07:34, 15 November 2015‎

Can you peek at Seyfert galaxy?[edit]

I'm trying to guard against reflexively fixing typos whenever there *might* be a chance I have no idea what I'm doing, so... Could you peek at section Type II Seyfert galaxies where it says "..., nuclear light reflected of a dust cloud was measured, ..." and see if 'of' shouldn't be 'off'? Thanks, Shenme (talk) 01:24, 10 January 2016 (UTC)

Shenme, you are absolutely correct, it should be "off" rather than "of". Hope you don't mind, I went ahead and applied the correction. Thanks for catching that! Huntster (t @ c) 07:02, 10 January 2016 (UTC)

Raptor preburner testing photograph[edit]

FYI, there is a high-quality US government photograph of the testing of full-scale oxygen preburner for the Raptor (rocket engine) in the Stennis/Lagniappe source I just added to the Raptor article. Thought you might want to have a look, and see if you think it worthy of inclusion as a Wikimedia image. Cheers. N2e (talk) 18:10, 10 January 2016 (UTC)

N2e, check the Raptor article for the new image. Good catch! Huntster (t @ c) 23:08, 10 January 2016 (UTC)
Thanks. That's perfect Always glad to have your superb help in image getting, and uploading, and taging/categorizing, etc. at Wikimedia, and your good sense in placement within articles. My image fu is not strong.
I've thought that that article could really use an image for a while now, and now it has a really good one. N2e (talk) 02:40, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

Accretion[edit]

Hello. I've been expanding the stub at Accretion (astrophysics) and I would be happy if you could check it out and give it a makeup as needed. Thanks, BatteryIncluded (talk) 14:43, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

More SpaceX F9 F21 photos[edit]

There are some really excellent Flickr photos of the rollout (on the TEL, or TE, whatever they are calling it now) of the Falcon 9 Flight 21 F9 v1.1 (the LAST one of that model, or "Block 2", or whatever) at VAFB to the launch pad. Very detailed and clear pics; best I've seen of this rocket.

Thought you might like to take a gander. Cheers. N2e (talk) 15:59, 16 January 2016 (UTC)

N2e, welp, someone beat me to uploading them. They are available at Commons:Category:Falcon 9 Flight 21. Huntster (t @ c) 22:06, 16 January 2016 (UTC)

Reference-maker[edit]

Hello and thanks for the help at the Accretion article. For about 10 years I've been using this machine to generate my references: [1] Can you recommend another similar system using an updated format? Thanks. BatteryIncluded (talk) 20:25, 16 January 2016 (UTC)

BatteryIncluded, I format all references by hand, because I dislike how the auto-ref programs format the citations. I would never ask anyone to not use them, however, especially content writers such as yourself, which is (overall) far more valuable in my view. I just enjoy doing gnomish work, filling in any bits that may have been missed. Huntster (t @ c) 20:35, 16 January 2016 (UTC)

SpaceX Merlin engine version photos[edit]

Huntster, I don't suppose you might be able to find an appropriate license to cover the getting the two versions of Merlin 1D engines (Merlin 1D and Merlin 1D vacuum) that are, apparently, currently on the SpaceX.com site, so that we might have them to use on the Merlin article? Here is a link to where I saw them today: [2]

And do note, the post immediately before that forum post, seems to have a good photo of the all the Merlin 1C models; but I don't see a specific source given for where that 1C photo came from. Cheers. N2e (talk) 21:27, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

N2e, so the images came from http://www.spacex.com/news/2013/02/11/falcon-9-progress-update-14 and http://www.spacex.com/news/2014/10/16/spacex-completes-100th-merlin-1d-engine, respectively. I'll get them uploaded under the Cc-zero-SpaceX license shortly, so check Commons:Category:Merlin (rocket engine) in a bit. Also, the three-engine picture seems to be a press photo from a local news agency, so its a no-go. Nice, though...it shows an M1C from Falcon 1, an M1C from Falcon 9, and an M1C Vacuum engine for comparison. Huntster (t @ c) 05:08, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
N2e, here you go:
Huntster (t @ c) 05:43, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
Thanks. Those are awesome! The Merlin (rocket engine) article has been sorely lacking a good image of Merlin 1D's for years now. So good to have those. I've put two of them in that article; feel free to move the images around etc., or add any of these to other articles as you think might be warranted. Cheers. N2e (talk) 16:13, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

Archicebus Image and related.[edit]

Hello Huntster - if possible, perhaps an image review may help => "File:Reconstruction image of Archicebus.jpg" - and related "WP:SPA" accounts => User:IvanStallenko (talk | contribs), User:Matseverson (talk | contribs) (also see article history) - and related articles => "Mat Severson", "Archicebus" - *all* may be *entirely* ok of course - but perhaps a review may help? - in any case - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 22:44, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

Drbogdan, I've emailed Mat Severson to confirm this is his upload. Is there something else specific you want me to look into? Huntster (t @ c) 06:06, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
@Huntster: Thank you for your reply - and for your comments (& related) re the Archicebus image - they're *very much* appreciated - yes - *greatly* helps clarify my concerns - Thanks again - and - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 13:56, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
@Drbogdan:, got a reply and confirmation from Mr. Severson, and it has been forwarded to OTRS. Anything else that comes up, I'll handle it. Huntster (t @ c) 15:56, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

Date format in "SpaceX private launch site"[edit]

Hey Huntster. Just a question. I notice you did some citation cleanup in SpaceX private launch site. Cool, and thanks.

But I'm unclear on how date formats work in Wikipedia. I created that article in 2013, and I used dmy format from the very first edit. (Although I'm American, and very familiar with mdy format, I find the other formats (either dmy or international digits like yyyy-mm-dd) to generally be best for the global and multi-lingual peoples who read the English Wikipedia.) However, having said that, I usually just put my dates in prose or citations, and let bots worry about keeping articles consistent with the Wikipedia process standards for such things (i.e., maintain the older/orginal standard format of each article...).

Just wondering, how did you see to make your changes mdy format? I wonder if someone changed the article in the two-year course of its life without a discussion. Cheers. N2e (talk) 04:20, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

N2e, honestly, because the dates in the article seemed to be all over the place, with prose dates in MDY, citation dates in DMY, and accessdates in YMD, I mentally flipped a coin, slightly weighted since U.S. location articles tend to be MDY. I can easily switch them over to DMY since that is your preference. Huntster (t @ c) 07:24, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
Thanks; I'll appreciate that. And no worries on having done that; I know you are just endeavoring, like all of us, to make a better encyclopedia for our readers.
So is it the case that any decent and longish articles ought to have one of those {{use}} templates added. I've done it in a few articles I've created, but never systematically. Is that the recommended approach?, to always have one of those?
N2e, it's not really necessary, but at the same time, it doesn't hurt anything. Huntster (t @ c) 15:51, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

The Open Door[edit]

I don't own the album, but do you know what the order they're listed in the liner notes? We could do it the way it says there. dannymusiceditor ~talk to me!~ 03:36, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

DannyMusicEditor, hmm, I had the CD case somewhere, but I can't seem to find it right now. I'll keep looking. Hopefully I didn't throw it away on accident. Huntster (t @ c) 04:12, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

ISS ATTitude ALTitude[edit]

Thanks for the note on the revert. Perhaps something to note, using the mobile version of wiki the page notice doesn't show. Possibly look into that via the pump or elsewhere. Anyhow ta. NJA (t/c) 19:36, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

NJA, well that is interesting. Given the limitations of mobile (in all aspects) I suspect nothing can be done, but it's definitely something to keep in mind. Thanks for that. Huntster (t @ c) 19:39, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

Autonomous sensory meridian response[edit]

Dear Hunster, I have just finished a long and arduous process of rewriting Autonomous sensory meridian response. It is not perfect, but it is of the standard in terms of structure, style, and content commensurate with articles I have authored for publications. Yet a user has tagged it with two criticisms: that it lacks structure and flow, and that it may need rewriting entirely.

Since joining WP, I have risen to criticisms placed in tags, and have learned a lot. But on this occasion, I cannot seem to reconcile the tags with the article. If it really is an example of one lacking in structure and flow, and needs rewriting, then frankly, I am of no use to Wikipedia, because it represents my most focused work. I took a look at the user who placed the tags and he/she does not have any contributions that I can see. However, as the author of the ASMR page, I am obviously biased and would very much appreciate your intervention and opinion. Many thanks. Prolumbo (talk) 08:26, 3 February 2016 (UTC)
