{{Systems-stub}} / Systems Thinking stubs[edit]

Hello. I notice that you added {{Systems-stub}} to the stub types page. Note that the top of the page states:

"To avoid unnecessary redirects and reverts, please discuss all new stubs types at Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Criteria prior to creation of new stubs and placement in articles or tables."

I have therefore moved the entry to the relevant location. Feel free to discuss it there.

Thanks. Missed that. --John Abbe

Reverted back Wiki[edit]

I reverted Wiki back to the version that has it inheriting the properties of software engine. I put what I feel is a logical illustration of my claim of this relationship in the talk section. If there's information that I'm missing, then I'll gladly oblige. Timhowardriley (talk) 21:00, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

As noted there, not all wikis are software engines. And even if they were, it's not a helpful term for most readers. --John_Abbe (talk) 11:26, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

Friendly heads up[edit]

Hi John! Thanks for your great contributions to the project! One guideline you may want to read up on is WP:Overlink. Usually we don't create wikilinks for common words like 'transport'. :-) --KeithbobTalk 18:27, 29 October 2015 (UTC)

Thanks yeah, it's true that I am very fond of adding links in Wikipedia, but I try to keep it relevant - and with Elon Musk's SpaceX, Tesla, Hyperloop, etc., just seemed like a missing link. It's interesting, because Musk's explicit goal seems to be to help save humanity, but somehow it always leads to him designing and building fast-moving toys! :-) John_Abbe (talk) 19:40, 29 October 2015 (UTC)

NVC @ Wikipedia[edit]

Hello John, since you sport an NVC user template on your page (and an advanced one!), I wonder if you made any experiences using NVC at Wikipedia. If so, I would love to learn from your experience; I prepared a page at User talk:SebastianHelm/NVC for discussing that. — Sebastian 11:26, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for the invitation, I have chimed in there and we'll see what happens!
