Table of biofuel crop yields[edit]

I'm sorry but I still am not sure about the source/s of all this info: which published source has it come from? More specifically, consider the line of Soybean data (as an example): "soybean 375 446 335 48". Exactly where do I go to verify this data? Johnfos (talk) 03:56, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

this info is in the referenced page [1]
 Soybean   Glycine max     46
the other figures you quoted were simple unit conversions from that. I see what you mean now though - the figures all seem to be inflated by 2 gallons per acre. It seems it was like this when Ddelpercio first added the info, so she either inflated the figures herself or they were like that when she sourced them from the Petroleum club. Either way - while that Petroleum club source remains unverifiable, the data should probably be manually updated to the ACTUAL verifiable data in the references that we DID find. (ie: all should be reduced 2 gallons per acre). I'd still like to know why the Petroleum Club's data is inflated by 2 gallons per acre though, assuming goodwill.

"Kill A Watt" AfD[edit]

Gay for Bridget[edit]

  • If you have a reliable source (ie. not Urbandictionary or other user-contributed content) I have no issues. JuJube (talk) 17:08, 21 August 2008 (UTC)
    • It is difficult to find such sources for Internet Memes so it may take some time. How are other Internet Meme articles sourced? ps: are you getting this message if i post it on my own talkpage? (and likewise, will i get notified if you reply to something i type on your talkpage?) i do not understand the wikipedia notification system for such things Roidroid (talk) 17:13, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

See also[edit]

I've just changed See Also to See also in a couple of places where you added that as a section heading. Under WP:MOS, it is incorrect to capitalize an initial letter merely because it's in a section heading. Michael Hardy (talk) 15:24, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

suggestion for deleted section[edit]

Your section "Linguistic relativity and bilingualism" was deleted without much discussion, but I still feel that it had sufficient substance to go somewhere. Hpvpp (talk) 05:37, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

I don't have much invested in the section, i was merely concerned about an in-line link to a commercial website. Roidroid (talk) 11:46, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being 'minor'. The only thing that's changed is that you will no longer have them marked as minor by default.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. If you are familiar with the contents of WP:MINOR, and believe that it is still beneficial to the encyclopedia to have all your edits marked as such by default, then this discussion will give you the details you need to continue with this functionality indefinitely. If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 19:32, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
