New Page Patrol survey[edit]


New page patrol – Survey Invitation

Hello Ke4roh! The WMF is currently developing new tools to make new page patrolling much easier. Whether you have patrolled many pages or only a few, we now need to know about your experience. The survey takes only 6 minutes, and the information you provide will not be shared with third parties other than to assist us in analyzing the results of the survey; the WMF will not use the information to identify you.

  • If this invitation also appears on other accounts you may have, please complete the survey once only.
  • If this has been sent to you in error and you have never patrolled new pages, please ignore it.

Please click HERE to take part.
Many thanks in advance for providing this essential feedback.

You are receiving this invitation because you have patrolled new pages. For more information, please see NPP Survey


Hi! I found this sandbox very interesting! Probably can be merged with Spaceborne Imaging Radar. Are you still working on? --AlessioMela (talk) 15:15, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

Maybe the merge is what's needed, though I was originally thinking it would be good to have an article about the stuff from STS-59 and STS-68. I have been stumped with the Lost City of Ubar which was much-touted and would be neat to include as a WP:DYK. I have a number of papers, highlighted on my desk, with findings from SIR-C/X-SAR, but time to put in their findings is scarce. Let's collaborate somehow! -- ke4roh (talk) 17:15, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

Internet host count[edit]

Dear Ke4roh,

I would create an updated version of File:Internet host count 1988-2012 log scale.png with gnuplot. May you send me the data behind the diagram?--Kopiersperre (talk) 16:13, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

You can scrape it from here. -- ke4roh (talk) 18:38, 18 October 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for your advice. The data only goes back to 1993, but your plot starts with 1988. May you give me the oldest data?--Kopiersperre (talk) 19:13, 25 October 2014 (UTC)
I have collected all the information into a spreadsheet. -- ke4roh (talk) 02:31, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

Deeth Starr image[edit]

Hi! The section Cultural impact on the Death Star article needed some clean up and I removed an image you uploaded, because I consider it to be unencyclopedic. Your image may be funny, but is just a vague reference and has no impact whatsoever. What do you think? Should I open a request for deletion (once I figure out how to do it)? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Heinerj (talkcontribs) 12:00, 4 January 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for asking. I obviously originally thought it worthy of inclusion and went to the trouble to find a free image, put it in the article, and find some references that at least began to support the relationship between the location sign and the non-moon. I put the same contribution on Interstate 80 in Nevada (talk, as it was) and Nevada State Route 230 (talk, as it was). Both were promptly removed. Alas, I lack the patience to defend it further and/or put it back, so as you wish. -- ke4roh (talk) 23:21, 4 January 2015 (UTC)
Please don't consider my edit an attack worth defending from! Since you think it should be included, but lack the motivation to discuss it, I'll wait and see if someone else reverts my edit. In the mean time, do you think it can be useful in other Wikimedia projects? Heinerj (talk) 23:30, 4 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks again for your courtesy. No, not an attack, just a differing opinion. See my comments on those talk pages regarding its relevance for the highway pages. I thought it more dubious on Death Star than on the highway pages, imagining it especially belongs on SR 230 since that's one end of the road. I do appreciate a touch of character in the encyclopedia, be it for including the odd (Lily Flagg, Miss Baker) or the unusual (Grundy County arson), but I also understand that not every bit of minutæ can be included, and a bunch of people must appreciate the work for it to stand. Consider this contribution which was reverted as "vandalism" after a few hours.
Regarding the image on commons, I would recommend leaving it even though no articles use it at present. Someone may wish to use it later for whatever purpose. There are myriad such images on commons.
Thank you again for your exemplary courtesy in this matter. -- ke4roh (talk) 04:02, 5 January 2015 (UTC)
