July 2009[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to make constructive contributions to Wikipedia, at least one of your recent edits, such as the one you made to Lanman, did not appear to be constructive and has been reverted. Please use the sandbox for any test edits you would like to make, and read the welcome page to learn more about contributing constructively to this encyclopedia. Thank you.

Oh sorry, please ignore that. Should have looked more carefully. You seem to be right; thanks for your attention to detail. With apologies, Shreevatsa (talk) 02:13, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

Pressure carburetor[edit]

You are correct. The article is not as clear as I intended it to be. "Needle valve" actually refers to a type of valve, not it's purpose.

A float carburetor has a valve which allows fuel in to the carburetor, but so does a pressure carburetor. The difference: In a float carburetor, the valve is controlled by a float and the idea is to keep a consistent fuel level. In a pressure carburetor, the valve is controlled by the movement of the flexible diaphragms and the idea is to keep a consistent fuel pressure.

I've made some changes to the article. Take a look and let me know what you think. Shreditor (talk) 03:25, 17 October 2009 (UTC)

Re: removal of dead links at ultrasound[edit]

I know what you're saying very well as I usually do recover dead links, daily, while fixing the articles. I don't recall why I missed that link at ultrasound. Perhaps there was too much too clean up, or lack of time, or I thought it is not worth recovering a web page (I strive for refereed sources). Anyway, my apologies - I'm not perfect and your help with fixing articles is appreciated. Cheers. Materialscientist (talk) 22:44, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

Page moves[edit]

Hey. Please do not perform cut-and-paste moves. I had to do a complex history merge/split to fix it. If the move function is not an option, you can request help at WP:RM. Thanks, Prolog (talk) 14:12, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, I didn't know about cut-and-paste moves (or even how to really perform a move) before. I will know better in the future.--Subversive Sound (talk) 20:41, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

.com link about phosgene[edit]

Hi I removed the .com link about phosgene. Although your well contribution was clearly well intentioned, we rarely welcome .com links at least in the chemistry project. And I think the info and its source are incorrect.--Smokefoot (talk) 19:43, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

Stellarator question[edit]

I realize this is 8 months tardy, but see this for the start of an edit in the body of the stellarator article. Maury Markowitz (talk) 15:03, 10 November 2010 (UTC)

Weight disambiguation page[edit]

I would like to point out to you that disambiguation pages are not articles; they are navigation pages for directing users to articles. I took your point regarding Fly by night, because there was no existing article, and split the material off to a separate page (although why you didn't just create an article in the first place, I don't know). But the extended definition you added to Weight (disambiguation) is unnecessary because the term itself links to the article on the subject. All that is required is a brief description to identify the topic--the content is already in the target article. Before you edit more disambiguation pages, may I suggest that you familiarize yourself with the Manual of Style of for disambiguation pages. Regards, --ShelfSkewed Talk 17:38, 21 May 2011 (UTC)

Cossack Hetmanate[edit]

In February you made an update to the intro of Cossack Hetmanate that seems to be incomplete. As the article currently reads, it sounds weird/unfinished:

In 1782 the autonomy of the Cossack state was officially abolished by Catherine II of Russia, while on the most of its territory was established the Kiev Governorate already in 1708.

Did you mean "on the [eastern/western/northern/southern]-most of its territory"? I'm unfamiliar with the geography of this area, so I don't know which part of the territory that the Kiev Governorate was established. Also, the "already in 1708" would sound better as "by 1708".--Subversive Sound (talk) 13:23, 1 October 2011 (UTC)

Actually on the whole territory of Hetmanate right after Ivan Mazepa agreed with Charles XII was established the Kiev Governorate in December of 1708. (Historical official documents at the website of the President of Russia) Aleksandr Grigoryev (talk) 02:33, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
