Welcome to Wikipedia[edit]

Mkoronowski, you have done a splendid revision of the Centrifugal compressor article, for which I thank you.

However, it is evident from the discussions you posted on the Talk:Centrifugal compressor page that you need help on how to properly use a Discussion page. Please read the helpful comments I left for you on that Talk:Centrifugal compressor.

Once again, welcome to Wikipedia! - mbeychok 07:00, 31 January 2007 (UTC)

Need help?[edit]

I don't understand what you're up to in trying to move your draft article to the subpage. Would you like me to just copy it there for you, so you don't lose all the headings and figures and such? Dicklyon (talk) 02:47, 22 April 2011 (UTC)

yes, please. there is a big difference between being a wiki expert and a topic expert. i do appreciate you help. btw, a bot ripped a bunch of corrections into my centrifugal compressor edits. some i guess are ok, the others stink. what should i do? go back and correct the important stuff again? or chat with who? thanks, martin koronowski, Mkoronowski (talk) 03:25, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
Give me a link and I'll look at it and see what I can suggest. I'll move your draft now (copy in edit mode in history from one page, paste into the subpage). Dicklyon (talk) 04:00, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
centrifugal compressor is what BilCat changed as shown in the history. as i read the actual article the text i thought deleted was not. my wiki markup skill stinks. yet the bot was still inconsistent on my highlighted text which i did for a reason.
specifically, turbomachinery, regardless of subclass is all similar, designed with the same applied mathematics. it is very important academically to show this similarity and uniformity. if a college student uses wiki as an intro, it will be useless without consistent notation and sound definitions of fundamentals. i see a real excellence elsewhere but not yet in turbomachines. thanks, i am sorry to waste your time. i do appreciate your help!!! , Mkoronowski (talk) 04:38, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
If you go in the history and click on a "prev" link you can get a URL to post as a "diff", like this. It shows that he moved some images closer to the top, simplified some overly-complicated links, removed some improper capitalization, and not much else. I'll add the space he squeezed out. What did he do that bothers you? Dicklyon (talk) 04:51, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
I just did this. You might be able to correlate some of my changes with the WP:MOS. We only capitalize proper nouns, and we only bold the article topic, and we don't put double blank line (I didn't get all those yet). Other than that, I didn't read it. Oh, and User:BilCat is not a bot. Dicklyon (talk) 05:00, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
live and learn. I understand the proper noun rule, i think there should be a modified rule for science and technology. but, no problem. i appreaciate the help. some day in the future, I'll understand why i thought text and captions were deleted per what i saw in the history comparison, yet they are still there in the article. what a relief. as far as the bot thing, he could have said something human, where is captcha when you need it. haaahaaa. thank you and i am sorry about the panic. my bad. my angst has been on the immenant danger level working my way through this stuff. if i had a nickle every time i rolled my eyes i'd be rich, maybe 200 bucks. it must be friday and late and a full moon. time for bed.
i do have a question, first a little about my muscular dystrophy and the wheel chair, no im not steven hawking. anyway, my speech recognition , dragon, is not compatable with the references template. i can type slow with one hand, one finger but have a micro keyboard and cant use the asci keyboard to get special characters. no you see why so few caps and lots of typos. i've started to copy and paste my article in and out of word 2010. any suggestions here? maybe a different external editor written for wiki? back in the day, i forget when, we used to write fortran code (pause for laugh) that wrote custom fortran and scripts to automate our analysis. I have to think a "what you see is what you wiki" editor is out there. just to help the un wikified. Mkoronowski (talk) 05:56, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
I'm not sure what to suggest. I just use the editor in the browser. If you want help formatting refs, you can put what you know in a talk page section and ask someone to put it into the article. Dicklyon (talk) 04:01, 24 April 2011 (UTC)
The cite tool in the edit window (click the "cite" icon, then click the tab for the type of citation: web, journal etc) allows you to enter the reference information without using any special characters. The reference will be inserted properly formatted automatically when you click "add citation". SpinningSpark 09:16, 24 April 2011 (UTC)

Hello Dick, can you please check something for me. in the scientic community Mach Number, Reynolds Number and similar ilk discoveries are always considered proper nouns. Mach Number refers to the equation which is a unique entity not a class of items. What is wiki policy? can it be improved to accomodate this? the Mach Number is like having a city named after you. Mkoronowski (talk) 06:38, 22 April 2011 (UTC)

Hello Dick, I looked around wiki math and found a slight inconsistency, in general the practice would be Mach number as the proper noun. thxs for the help. Mkoronowski (talk) 07:00, 22 April 2011 (UTC)

Most scientific works do not capitalize "number" in those contexts; check books, where you see it capitalized only in headings. In wikipedia, we don't even capitalize in headings, excepts for words that are almost always capitalized in reliable sources. Dicklyon (talk) 03:58, 24 April 2011 (UTC)

Your request for assistance[edit]

You have some replies at WP:EAR SpinningSpark 23:01, 23 April 2011 (UTC)


In your post at Editor Assistance you brought up issues with your voice recognition software. If you don't find a compatible WYSIWYG editor, I'd be happy to act as your amanuensis. If you copypaste some sort of unformatted citation onto the article talk page and then indicate somehow which citations go where, I can take care of formatting for you. Does that sound workable? --Danger (talk) 15:52, 24 April 2011 (UTC)

thankyou and i will ask you for help soon. i am still going to try various techniques to see if i can master anything that i think is effective for me. one problem i have is the following[1] needs to be linked to the following web site,, i just don't know how to do this. thankyou Mkoronowski (talk) 19:26, 24 April 2011 (UTC)
Done. I fixed it in Centrifugal compressor. The cite template has a "url= " field in all of its forms. --Danger (talk) 19:39, 24 April 2011 (UTC)
If you need assistance in the near future (next three weeks or so), please leave a message on my talk page. I will be watching messages, but I may not remember to check article changes while running around like a decapitated chicken in real life. Danger (talk) 02:56, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

And do you need help with capitalization? We use sentence case (as opposed to title case as some works do) for all titles and headings as well as for sentences. If you need help fixing those, let me know and I'll take a pass over it. Dicklyon (talk) 18:46, 30 April 2011 (UTC)

Hello Dick, yes i do. thankyou! I also need help formating tables. only if you have time.Mkoronowski (talk) 18:54, 30 April 2011 (UTC)
I don't do tables. Dicklyon (talk) 22:26, 30 April 2011 (UTC)

Threatening editors at Mechanical fan[edit]

A dispute over the scope of an article is no excuse to start threatening other editors with bans, let alone blocks. You have no authority to start throwing such threats around, any nore than any other editor. Your track record for making accusations is poor, let alone their accuracy. Nor are your own edits a shining example of clarity or good copywriting. Andy Dingley (talk) 23:24, 22 May 2011 (UTC)

points well made. 1)help the newbees out more, working in wiki is rough at best. 2)i removed it once before, 3)a commercialization of a vena contracts is salesmanship, dysons product has a mechanical fan in the base, that is how it works.4) problem is, that unless you do something wrong, no one gives advice. please tell me if wiki is suppose to be brand name free or not. 5)who out there mentors the newbees, i need help and have asked. sometimes i get answers, sometimes i don't. as far as the reckless accuracy, is it corrected to your satisfaction or not?Mkoronowski (talk) 23:50, 22 May 2011 (UTC)


The article is not NPOV without the list, beacuse it is listing some car brands, thst why the list is there, if you go thru the article you see it gives credits to some car brands which does not earn it. I explained that in the edit comment already. And the list is good encyclopedic data, whihc is often search by users -->Typ932 T·C 02:14, 23 May 2011 (UTC)

do you agree that the article is about turbochargers?
that obvious
are you an automobile enthusiast?
should the list of cars include any more?
No but the article need historical background
why does this list of cars present a npov?
Because there is mentioned other cars in the main text, which doesnt even need to be mentioned. Did you actually read the whole article??? I doubt you have not even read the article thru.
why does the list only include american and european cars?
1980 Mitsubishi Lancer GT Turbo is this european or american car? I cant change the fact that others did not make turbocharged cars before europeans or americans.
should the first turbocharged cars from every auto manufacturer be added just to be fair?
No but the article should have historical section and I think its good to have info about the pioneers, this is common also on other wikipedia articles
do you what to see a comparable list of all military aircraft that use(d) turbochargers?
... light aircraft ...?
... performance aircraft ...?
... all trucks from around the world ...?
... all heavy/industrial/marine diesels from around the world ...?
should the non automotive lists be in separate articles?
you are free to add other data/info wikipedia is free encyclopedia
would the article get too long?Mkoronowski (talk) 04:46, 23 May 2011 (UTC)
If the article grows too big then it can be splitted, there is also list of Manufacturers of turbochargers do you think its needed? -->Typ932 T·C 18:12, 23 May 2011 (UTC)
if the list of manufacturers is included and conforms to wiki's commercialization rules then i have no problem as long as it makes an effort to include all manufacturers, including Russia and china. currently it does not and it has been too many years since i've worked with any Chinese turbo-machinery manufacturers to remember them. One of my peers used to be in development at one of the two big russian firms. i hope i made sense. please excuse my speech recognition software. i am disabled and just learning how to use it.Mkoronowski (talk) 19:05, 23 May 2011 (UTC)
the Mitsubishi lancer is a Japanese car with an english name. does it have a different name in japan? was it the only Japanese car to be turbo'ed during the 15 years your list covers? it is only 1 out of list. it is very likely that japan was using the same car with possibly a different name in 78 or 79. I also think other Japanese manufacturers might very likely had tc'd competitors by 82.
yes i have read the whole article all the way through, that is why i tried to develop a new outline for it. it was a little messy. i have started to rewrite specific sections that cover fundamentals, paragraph by paragraph. it is of course a turbocharger article. i have completed or assisted in the aero design of one or more locomotive turbochargers, automotive turbochargers, automotive centrifugal superchargers, micro turbines based on turbos and a turbo specially sized for a fuel cell. Mkoronowski (talk) 19:49, 23 May 2011 (UTC)
do you think anyone would like to know how to match their own turbocharger to their engine? also, as i learned from Andy yesterday do contributors need to balance their contributions against other interests or is it ok to load the article with auto applications since that is what you know?Mkoronowski (talk) 19:58, 23 May 2011 (UTC)

compressor.jpg is named incorrectly[edit]

I think it is fair to rename the existing file, rather than creating a clone, since it does not make much sense, the existence of two files are identical, but differ in name only! The use dl file "Compressor.JPG" was given only because the older (original), not because he was correct.

If I'm not mistaken you can also make commons "redirect".--A7N8X (talk) 14:04, 7 July 2011 (UTC)

Dear Wiki-persona

Please help me with...I am helping the family and estate of Katherine Hoover (flutist, composer, ...) edit Katherine's wiki article. My work is in my sandbox. in contrast to my centrifugal compressor article, i must be absolutely rigorous with these edits. i'm doing this as a favor to Katherine's husband and her son. Katherine's husband is her estate's executor and new owner of Papagena Press.

How can the estate executor acquire authoritative control over the page?

 •there have been edits and deletions that are in error.

Is there a classical musically inclined expert contributor that i can work with to assure i am following the highest standards for composers, flutists, and college faculty?

 •to be expeditious, I've been copying and re-writing other section's from other wiki articles.

Mkoronowski (talk) 17:49, 16 June 2019 (UTC)

Unfortunately, you cannot obtain complete control over a page even if you may be uniquely positioned to add accurate information (and that is in fact against policy, Wikipedia:Ownership of content), though if you can make use of your knowledge or any insights for locating sources, that can only help. The best way to find experienced volunteers that are interested in the field is to find the relevant WikiProject, in this case Wikipedia:WikiProject Music and Wikipedia:WikiProject Musicians, and ask on the talk page. This may take some time for smaller WikiProjects. You should also add {{WikiProject Biography}} to the talk page of the article once it is published, which will place it in the categories to be noticed by the people who watch for these articles. Please also note that as you are affiliated with the article subject, you are considered to have a conflict of interest by our policy. Here is a simple guide to help you get started.
