Minor edits[edit]

Hi Inglixthemad. I've notice that you have been marking your edits are minor, when they are in fact somewhat substantial. Edits should only be marked as minor if they involve a superficial change, such as a spelling correction etc - for further details on what edits are considered minor, please see Help:Minor edit. Thanks again for your contributions -- Antepenultimate 22:27, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

Whoah, pardner…[edit]

Please take a couple of steps back and spend a couple of minutes reading up on the basics of how we do things on Wikipedia (and how we don't). You seem very passionate about matters related to Avgas, for example, and eager to contribute, and that's all terrific and genuinely welcome. However, contributions must be in accord with core Wikipedia protocols such as Verifiability and Reliable Sources. You're obviously quite an avid fan of John Deakins and he appears to have some apposite things to say on the subject, but the blog article of his that you refer to certainly isn't the final or only word on the subject. Mr. Deakins seems to have some strongly-held opinions and preferences, some of which may well be 100% factual, true, and correct…and others of which may not. Please take a look here to understand why some guy's web page (anyone's, not just Deakins') is not adequate by itself to serve as a source for an assertion. I'm a little troubled by his haughty dismissal of Tetraethyl lead as a countermeasure to valve recession, given that he implicitly admits it's a real phenomenon in engines without hard exhaust valve seats. Of course it's robustly demonstrated that hard seats eliminate the need for lead to prevent valve recession, and Deakins seems to know this, so why the eye-rolling, smarmy, smug dismissal of valve recession per se as a bunch of hooey? It makes him appear biased, and makes me wonder what else he's talking up and talking down to promulgate his opinions and preferences without regard to the facts. Moreover, while he makes vague reference to FAA tests and such, he doesn't provide a way for us to go look at what he says he's looked at. That means we don't know if it really exists, and if it exists we don't know if it really says what Deakins says it says. Do you begin to see the problem?

Moreover, please participate coöperatively in talk page discussions. New sections go below existing sections, and you may not edit existing comments left by other contributors. Please also properly sign your comments. Thank you. —Scheinwerfermann T·C17:46, 19 November 2011 (UTC)
