GAC backlog elimination drive[edit]

This form message is being sent to you either due to your membership with WikiProject Good Articles and/or your inclusion on the Wikipedia:Good article candidates/List of reviewers. A new drive has been started requesting that all members review at least one article (or more, if you wish!) within the next two weeks at GAC to help in removing the large backlog. This message is being sent to all members, and even members who have been recently reviewing articles. There are almost 130 members in this project and about 180 articles that currently need to be reviewed. If each member helps to review just one or two articles, the majority of the backlog will be cleared. Since the potential amount of reviewers may significantly increase, please make sure to add :{{GAReview}} underneath the article you are reviewing to ensure that only one person is reviewing each article. Additionally, the GA criteria may have been modified since your last review, so look over the criteria again to help you to determine if a candidate is GA-worthy. If you have any questions about this drive or the review process, leave a message on the GAC talk page. --Nehrams2020 00:14, 25 May 2007 (UTC)

Don Puddy[edit]

Thanks for working on the Don Puddy article! Gaff ταλκ 15:42, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

  • Sorry for the delay getting back to you...I was surprised to find that a NASA flight director did not have an article. I think that it would not take too much work to get an article for every flight director. Gene Krantz has a nice looking article. I was thinking about getting standardized infoboxes for each of them, listing years of service, major projects, whatever else might fit. Also, the standardized footers might be another thing to work on. I have very little experience with infoboxes and really none with the footers, but can probably tweak similar things from existing projects, like the biographies of Presidents. I am thinking of working on this in my sandbox User:Gaff/Sandbox. I also notice that there is no article on Flight Directors, but just a mention of them here Flight_controller.

Some decisions regarding Project Apollo[edit]

Hi. I've realised your currently working mainly on the Project Apollo article. I am too, and I wondered what your position was on certain decisions that may be necessary to make to improve the article, namely: should the name be changed to Apollo program, rather than Project Apollo, and also regarding your comment on the talk page about the multimedia section I added in external links -- I have replied - here. Thanks in advance, and for all the work you've done so far on the article -- at the moment I think it's pretty good and hopefully soon we can up it to good article/maybe featured (again). Thanks. --J. Atkins (talk | contribs) 16:28, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for your reply. I only started working on this article a few days ago, by the looks of it you've done an awful lot of work on it -- thanks. And yes, GA would be great. --J. Atkins (talk | contribs) 15:40, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

Edit to Space_Shuttle_Columbia_disaster[edit]

Hi! I was wondering if you could help me by determining whether this edit is constructive of vandalism: [1]. I am not very familiar with the topic, so I didn't want to make a judgment on it. Thanks! --Nemilar 20:00, 9 June 2007 (UTC)

July 2007 GAC backlog elimination drive[edit]

A new elimination drive of the backlog at Wikipedia:Good article candidates will take place from the month of July through August 12, 2007.

Awards will be given based on the number of reviews completed. Since the potential amount of reviewers may significantly increase, please make sure to add :{{GAReview}} underneath the article you are reviewing to ensure that only one person is reviewing each article. Additionally, the GA criteria may have been modified since your last review, so look over the criteria again to help you to determine if a candidate is GA-worthy.

Apollo program - photo gallery removal/repositioning and new info[edit]

Hi MLilburne. This is about the Apollo program article:

I've removed the photo gallery and placed all the images that were part of it as thumbnails in relevant locations on the page. I've also added some information from the Neil Armstrong article - a paragraph about his opinions on a human mission to Mars in the section Influence of future human space exploration: Manned.

If you have time, please have a look and see what you think. Have a great week --J. Atkins (talk | contribs) 11:06, 24 July 2007 (UTC)

Christopher C. Kraft, Jr.[edit]

I left a note on the article talk page, but there's been no response or revision; which birthdate is correct, the one in the intro or the one in the infobox? MisfitToys 22:39, 24 July 2007 (UTC)

Text Removal[edit]

Curious why you removed from [2] the following text "upon learning that the Columbia orbiter was lost, told a control member to 'lock the doors,' as tears streamed down his cheeks. He later said he was very angry at that point, and only thought of making sure no data was lost." i do realize this was a year ago; i just noticed. i am not complaining, per se - i note you have considerable experience editing. i was wondering if there is a good place in that article about him, or if perhaps either you feel it didn't belong, or wikipedia policy discourages that type of entry. it actually was my first page created, although it was created under my first user name - wikidelphia - which i switched from since i thought some may confuse my screen name as an administrator's screen name. does the removed text have a place there? either way if you can articulate why it doesn't i shall certainly defer to your greater knowledge--Snideology (talk) 01:06, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

I agree with your points about this removed text in general. I also do know that not only the doors are locked after a mishap, but control stations are locked as well for obvious reasons. However, this was a famous & noteworthy dramatic moment, with some historic relevance - similar to Gene Kranz's predilection to wearing vests during his shifts one might say. Perhaps there is a better way to incorporate this. Now that I think about it, it may belong more in the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster area. Would you object to some reference of this being placed in there?--Snideology (talk) 00:03, 11 April 2008 (UTC)
Did not put it in, but it shows that I really should have read that article in more depth. Thanks for your kind assistance & your appreciated NASA (et. al.) articles. A sticky star (remember those on papers in elementary school? lol) to you, sir.--Snideology (talk) 13:49, 17 April 2008 (UTC)

A new task force - ESA[edit]

Hello,

I've noticed that you are active in the area of space exploration. I just wanted to let you know that a European Space Agency task force has been set up to improve the presently very poor condition of articles about ESA and related topics. If you are interested, please join the task force here. We sure could use your help. Thanks.U5K0 (talk) 11:31, 18 August 2008 (UTC)

Apollo 1 fire[edit]

Hi. I've started Apollo 1 fire, borrowing much from the Apollo 1 article itself (which in theory can have much much of the information about the accident moved over like STS-51-L and STS-107 do with respect to the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster and Space Shuttle Columbia disaster articles), and noticing it listed as an article you'd work on if you had the time, wondered if you feel you could add to it; it's currently just a short stub but obviously deserves to eventually be brought up to the standards of the Challenger and Columbia disaster articles.

Thanks, and don't worry if not. --J. Atkins (talk - contribs) 20:08, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

GA Sweeps invitation[edit]

Hello, I hope you are doing well. I am sending you this message since you are a member of the GA WikiProject. I would like to invite you to consider helping with the GA sweeps process. Sweeps helps to ensure that the oldest GAs still meet the criteria, and improve the quality of GAs overall. Unfortunately, last month only two articles were reviewed. This is definitely a low point after our peak at the beginning of the process when 163 articles were reviewed in September 2007. After nearly two years, the running total has just passed the 50% mark. In order to expediate the reviewing, several changes have been made to the process. A new worklist has been created, detailing which articles are left to review. All exempt and previously reviewed articles have already been removed from the list. Instead of reviewing by topic, you can consider picking and choosing whichever articles interest you.

We are always looking for new members to assist with the remaining articles, so if you are interested or know of anybody that can assist, please visit the GA sweeps page. In addition, for every member that reviews 100 articles or has a significant impact on the process, s/he will get an award when they reach that threshold. If only 14 editors achieve this feat starting now, we would be done with Sweeps! Of course, having more people reviewing less articles would be better for all involved, so please consider asking others to help out. Feel free to stop by and only review a few articles, something's better than nothing! Take a look at the list, and see what articles interest you. Let's work to complete Sweeps so that efforts can be fully focused on the backlog at GAN. If you have any questions about the process, reviewing, or need help with a particular article, please contact me or OhanaUnited and we'll be happy to help. --Happy editing!

WikiProject Spaceflight activity[edit]

Hello there! As part of an effort to determine how many active editors are present in the spaceflight-related WikiProjects, changes have been made to the list of members of WikiProject Spaceflight. If you still consider yourself to be an active editor in this project, it would be appreciated if you would please edit the list so that your name is not struck out - thus a clearer idea of the number of active editors can be determined.

WikiProject Spaceflight reboot[edit]

Hello there! As you may or may not be aware, a recent discussion on the future of the Space-related WikiProjects has concluded, leading to the abolition of WP:SPACE and leading to a major reorganisation of WP:SPACEFLIGHT. It would be much appreciated if you would like to participate in the various ongoing discussions at the reorganisation page and the WikiProject Spaceflight talk page. If you are a member of one of WP:SPACEFLIGHT's child projects but not WP:SPACEFLIGHT itself, it would also be very useful if you could please add your name to the member list here. Many thanks!

Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks.

Better source request for File:Jay greene big.jpg[edit]

Thanks for your upload to Wikipedia:

You provided a source, but it is difficult for other users to examine the copyright status of the image because the source is incomplete. Please consider clarifying the exact source so that the copyright status may be checked more easily. It is best to specify the exact Web page where you found the image, rather than only giving the source domain or the URL of the image file itself. Please update the image description with a URL that will be more helpful to other users in determining the copyright status.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source in a complete manner. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page or me at my talk page. Thank you. Message delivered by Theo's Little Bot (opt-out) 03:07, 5 May 2014 (UTC)
