Aerodynamic Lift[edit]

Lensim- Would you be so kind as to modify your comment and put it in the article for Lift (force) A section on the general causes and physics behind lift would be nice. Theon 18:24, Aug 27, 2004 (UTC)

Certainly, with your guidance
I would be happy to add to the article. I am new to wikipedia, so...
1) should I simply add text, even if it conflicts with already existing text, or
2) should I also modify existing text. If so, what level of modification is usually appropriate? Are major rewrites accepted or should it be kept to a minimum?
I don't want to step on anyone's toes.
Thanks for any guidance you can provide.

Tom Brown, Jr.[edit]

Awesome work with the Tom Brown page, I had looked there a couple months ago and found there wasn't a page, i was just going there to make one now, when i realized there already was one. ill add anything i can. good work. :) SECProto 21:21, Feb 21, 2005 (UTC)

  • In response to what you said on my user page, I am not actually familiar with Tom Brown Jr in real life. However, I have read several of his books, and my brother has read them all. My brother has also went to a local nature awareness summer thing (the person who put it on took a course with tom brown, i think) about 10 years ago, i guess that would be where he first heard of him.

Hello. Here's the template I replaced the sidebar with. It's now in the Tasaday page. --Nino Gonzales 13:52, 11 January 2006 (UTC)

Ivermectin[edit]

Lensim - please help me out a little. I am new at navigating Wikipedia. I posted a question on the Ivermectin page, and since you responded to another question (a year or so ago), I am coming directly to you. I guess there is no way to contact the writer of the article. Would you be so kind as to check the Ivermectin page and, if you can, answer the question? Or point me in the right direction? Or tell me to drop dead? Thanks, Lensim! Margaret now 13:52, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

I have responded at Talk:Ivermectin. I hunted down the person who added the information you question. They have no discussion page as yet but you can start one, and perhaps they will respond. I found who it was by judicious use of the "compare selected versions" function on the Ivermectin history page. Hope this helps. Lensim 16:23, 14 March 2007 (UTC)
Thanks, Lensim! I appreciate your prompt response. Margaret now 18:14, 18 March 2007 (UTC)

Bobcat#Tracks[edit]

I'm wondering if you added the info to this section, as you uploaded the picture of the tracks. We were hoping to get a source for it. Cheers, Marskell 14:47, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

Funny you should ask. I did create that section, and I did source it. Some time ago, someone made minor changes, removed my source reference, and replaced it with their own. Anyway, here is the source: Tom Brown's Field Guide to Nature Observation and Tracking by Tom Brown, Jr., ISBN 9780425099667. --Lensim 14:55, 25 June 2007 (UTC)
Nice, thank you (funny I got you at a logged-in moment). My concern is that in googling I see feral cat tracks do not actually appear to be rounded, but also show the indentation. What do you think? Marskell 14:59, 25 June 2007 (UTC)
Yes I agree that house cat tracks often show the indentation at the top of the foot pad. (One only needs to look at a cat's paws to see this). The odd thing is that most drawings of house cat tracks show the rounded "one-humped" upper foot pad. In summary, from what I've seen, actual house cat tracks are quite like bobcat tracks, only markedly smaller (and tend to occur near houses, not in the wilderness, etc). I have just re-read the tracks section as it stands. The reference above is valid only for track/stride measurements and the directly register comment. Since you are improving the article (thanks btw), two things:
  • the image caption is missing the word "mud"
  • the directly register wiki link should point to an article entitled direct register as this is the better phrasing for the general phenomenon
--Lensim 15:21, 25 June 2007 (UTC)
It would probably be fair to say that sometimes the domestic has a single rounded hump.[1] But it's equivocal and not the most pressing info, so I removed it. I actually dug up your old edit and added the 2x2 figure. (Did I mix inches square with squared inches?—I hate that.) Also, I threw in a weblink suggesting 1.8 inches is the average length; happily, your photo shows that length almost exactly.
The redlink does go to directly register BTW; the 's' is outside the square brackets. Cheers, Marskell 16:04, 25 June 2007 (UTC)
Yes that all looks excellent. Nice. But on the redlink, my concern is not the 's', but the 'ly'. Keep up the good work. --Lensim 16:45, 25 June 2007 (UTC)
Ah, of course. We shouldn't use adverbials in titles. Thanks for all your help. Marskell 19:18, 25 June 2007 (UTC)
