New Glenn[edit]

Hi there, when you get a moment you may want to take a look at my recent edit of New Glenn - I restored a paragraph which was truncated by your edit (for formatting/grammar reasons), but have no idea if it actually needed removing or not. Cheers, Jessicapierce (talk) 08:06, 14 November 2018 (UTC)

Thanks, User:Jessicapierce, for noticing the broken syntax on that citation. I looked it over, and that was indeed the only part that was broken. The other parts, and the NYT citation, were duplicated elsewhere, so I left just the syntax fix. (plus, I found a redundant statement on the diameter that I had left in the article; so fixed even a little more. I think it's better now. Thanks for being such a conscientious editor, and for suggesting I have a look.
Look forward to working with you on other articles in the future. Cheers. N2e (talk) 19:19, 14 November 2018 (UTC)
Oh no worries, and thank you for improving that article so much! Jessicapierce (talk) 19:30, 14 November 2018 (UTC)
Hello. Just a note let you know my thinking on the Blue Origin's Stena Freighter ship: it is likely that its retrofit will change the gross tonnage of the ship, but I opted for showing the last official record of it, as it gives a very good idea of its mass. Its Call Sign is likely to change too, and its name. But the IMEM and the MMSI numbers will remain the same. It would be useful to find out basic specs on its engines, but I came empty handed. Cheers, Rowan Forest (talk) 03:49, 25 November 2018 (UTC)
Yes, thanks Rowan Forest. All the basic specs an are are there now. User:Huntster found a great source (the British Royal Fleet Auxiliary Historical group) and also a different ship registry with the current name of the ship: LPV I took that British source and fleshed out a fairly complete History section today. See what you think. Cheers. N2e (talk) 12:59, 25 November 2018 (UTC)

@Cwmhiraeth: : Thanks much for taking your volunteer duties in page curation so seriously, and for leaving the kind note, Cwmhiraeth!
I took a look at your user page and see you are super experienced in the DidYouKnow? process on Wikipedia. I wonder, do you think this article might be weird and interesting enough to be a good candidate for that? Or is there somewhere where one can just point out a interesting article/topic like that, and let a "jury of our peers/other editors" sort it? N2e (talk) 21:09, 25 November 2018 (UTC)
It would be an excellent article to appear on DYK, and I see from the article's history that you started working on it properly on 24 November so you are within the seven day time frame. If you need any help in nominating it, please ask. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 06:16, 26 November 2018 (UTC)
I went ahead Cwmhiraeth and nominated it for DYK. Please do feel free to take a look and see if I did it right. You are welcome to change/improve anything you think might make it better for the WP main page reader. Cheers. N2e (talk) 04:29, 29 November 2018 (UTC)
What you have done looks fine and will be reviewed sooner or later by a DYK reviewer. However, you have not completed the final phase. You need to add the template {{Did you know nominations/Blue Origin landing platform ship}} to the 24 November section of the DYK nomination page. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 06:24, 29 November 2018 (UTC)
Okay, thanks for that input, Cwmhiraeth. I've just added it now. N2e (talk) 12:20, 29 November 2018 (UTC)

─────────────────────────Cwmhiraeth—With that fixed, I have one more question: links. Should the nominator select/suggest which part of the DYK hook phrase is linked to the subject article? I didn't, 'cause I wasn't sure how to do it. Or does one leave it for the "process" that does it automatically 'cause that is the name of the DYK section, and it identifies the correct article? And after the nom is made, can things still be changed? and if so, where should one do it? N2e (talk) 12:41, 29 November 2018 (UTC)

Actually, I had not noticed that the subject of the article was not bolded and wikilinked, and I have done that for ALT1 now, leaving you to deal with the other hooks. Basically, the nominator bolds and links the new article's title in the hooks, but a reviewer or promoter may still change the linking later. It is often best not to wikilink too many other words or the reader may not realise which link to follow to see the new article. After the nomination is made, things can still be changed on the article template or in the article, by you, the reviewer (when one turns up) or by others. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 13:35, 29 November 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for the great help. I followed your lead. I think I've got it sorted now. N2e (talk) 15:02, 29 November 2018 (UTC)
Remarkably, the nom seems to have been approved rather speedily, and is now on the approved page. Question for you Cwmhiraeth, if you are willing to help. The reviewer rather like ALT1, better than the main one, but approved them all (I guess). I commented on that page that I'd be happy to move ALT1 to the main hook. But now that it is on the approved page, I'm reticient to do so. If you think it is okay, could you just comment about that right in the discussion on that T/DYKApproved page: Did_you_know_nominations/Blue_Origin_landing_platform_ship
Would really appreciate DYK guidance once again. Cheers. N2e (talk) 05:46, 2 December 2018 (UTC)
You need do nothing further. Someone will promote the hook in due course and will decide which hook to use based on what the reviewer has said and their own opinion. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 06:11, 2 December 2018 (UTC)
Super. Thanks, Cwmhiraeth! N2e (talk) 15:06, 2 December 2018 (UTC)

DYK for Blue Origin landing platform ship[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 18 December 2018, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Blue Origin landing platform ship, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that Amazon founder Jeff Bezos aims to land rockets on a moving ship? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Blue Origin landing platform ship. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Blue Origin landing platform ship), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Air Force Space Command[edit]

Could you please re-check this edit you a while back? There doesn't appear to to an actual cite. Thanks - wolf 06:22, 20 December 2018 (UTC)

Thanks User:Thewolfchild for pointing that out. Weird edit on my part. Don't know where the full source was.
I've searched and found it, and added a cite to the article now. Cheers. N2e (talk) 03:40, 21 December 2018 (UTC)
Glad it was quick fix and we could keep the info. Cheers - wolf 03:50, 21 December 2018 (UTC)
