You revert on the Taekwondo article[edit]

Hi! I saw your revert on Taekwondo. Taekwondo is actually not for self defense because martial arts for self defense are Wing Chun and Krav Maga. Why did you revert my edit to this article? Opo Chano (talk) 21:03, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

Part of the curriculum of study for TKD involves learning self-defense techniques (in addition to sparring, poomse/forms, and breaking techniques). If you are trying to emphasize that TKD is primarily intended as a sport or combat martial art, that's fine, but don't confuse that with the fact that as a martial art, its derives its basic techniques from both combat and self-defense movements. — Loadmaster (talk) 17:47, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

COBOL peer review[edit]

Hi Loadmaster, I'd noticed that you've edited COBOL a few times, and I was wondering if you'd mind adding a few comments to the peer review. I'd appreciate any comments you can give. EdwardH (talk) 19:34, 29 January 2015 (UTC)

Grim Downsizer listed at Redirects for discussion[edit]


An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect Grim Downsizer. Since you had some involvement with the Grim Downsizer redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you have not already done so. Mr. Guye (talk) 03:05, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

Layout details - spacing of computer code.[edit]

I see you adjusted the spacing of some example code in the for-loop article to improve readability. This is always good, but alas, different people have different ideas. In my case, I wince at the overuse of spacing when the spacing can be used to support the reading. Specifically, I have spaces around + and - and no spaces around * and /, precisely so as to support the reading of different levels of association. Thus, 1 + 2*3, not the flabby 1 + 2 * 3, and definitely not the weird 1+2 * 3, which usage I have been bewildered to see elsewhere, and not in the context of Reverse Polish or similar. I just don't understand that at all. When concocting heavy formulae as in Physics or Mathematics, care with the layout is helpful. Naturally, I feel that everyone should provide help in my way... NickyMcLean (talk) 12:03, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

I mostly added spaces to separate assignment operators from their operands, so that x=y became the more readable x = y. This is especially important in lines having multiple expressions, such as the controlling expressions of a C for-loop. As for binary operators, I typically go with either x + 3*y or x + 3 * y, depending on the surrounding code. I also personally put extra (two) spaces around logical connectives (ands and ors, e.g., a < b/2 && a != c+1) in my own code, but I don't do that here on WP. — Loadmaster (talk) 02:07, 11 May 2015 (UTC)
