Invitation[edit]

I've seen your edits to articles related to the Bay Area, such as Berkeley, California, so I was wondering if you'd like to join WikiProject San Francisco Bay Area. It's a WikiProject that focuses on improving Wikipedia's coverage of the Bay Area. If you'd like to join, just add your name to the member list. Thanks for reading! — Emiellaiendiay 08:30, 11 February 2007 (UTC)

Welcome[edit]

BayareaUSGS.jpg

Hi, Tmangray, and welcome to WikiProject
San Francisco Bay Area
!

We are a growing community of Wikipedia editors dedicated to identifying, categorizing, and improving articles relevant to the Bay Area. Here are some points that may be helpful:

  • Our main aim is to help improve Bay Area-related articles, so if people ask for help with an article, please try your hardest to help them if you are able.
  • Most important discussions take place on the project's main discussion page. It is highly recommended that you watchlist it.
  • The project has several ongoing and developing activities, such as article quality assessment, which you are welcome to participate.
  • Our system for improving lower-quality articles is Jumpaclass. If you'll be editing stub, start, or B-class articles, consider using Jumpaclass to track your progress.
  • If you have another language besides English, please consider adding yourself to our translation section, to help us improve our foreign Bay Area topics.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask on the talk page, and we will be happy to help you.

Again, welcome! We hope you enjoy working on this project.

P.S. Right now we're focusing on tagging everything Bay Area-related. You can pitch in by adding {{SFBAProject | class=}} to the top of talk pages of articles. Click here if you need more information on assessing articles. Thanks!

Somali Plate[edit]

Hello. I would really like to know the source that you used for the added sentence As the rifting is, in geologic terms, just getting underway, these two parts of the African Plate are generally regarded as protoplates rather than as full-fledged independent plates. inthis edit

Thank you,--Adi (talk) 06:36, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

K, in that case I'll just remove the whole sentence.--Adi (talk) 06:25, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
Be my guest. The definition is rarely stated by geologists anyway. It was pointed out to me online that a full-fledged plate is one which includes oceanic crust emerging from a seafloor spreading rift at its growing edge. An incipient spreading center is one in which continental crust is being rifted antecedent to oceanic crust being formed. No particular citeable source near at hand for me to reference, but I expect someone else may eventually come up with one. Tmangray (talk) 20:54, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

Daniel J. Patterson[edit]

Georgia 300[edit]

Hi. I've nominated Georgia 300, an article you worked on, for consideration to appear on the Main Page as part of Wikipedia:Did you know. You can see the hook for the article here, where you can improve it if you see fit. Thanks, 293.xx.xxx.xx (talk) 23:18, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

DYK for Georgia 300[edit]

Updated DYK query On January 25, 2009, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Georgia 300, which you created or substantially expanded. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the Did you know? talk page.

Monsoon trough and ITCZ[edit]

Were you thinking monsoon trough was a more generalized term (parent article) to ITCZ, or the other way around? Your comments on the monsoon trough talk page gave me the impression it was the other way around. Either way, some piece of literature must be found to indicate they are not one and the same. Their definitions through the glossary of meteorology seem different, but inherently explain the same feature. Definitely let me know if you ever run across a paper that separates the two terms. I've never run across one. Thegreatdr (talk) 15:47, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

Colorado River/Monterey Canyon[edit]

Hi - I've removed a bit about the Colorado River course and Monterey Canyon (see: Talk:Colorado River#Section removed for discussion. Seems it was sourced to an abstract of a master's thesis from 1982, and that doesn't really qualify as a reliable source. After a bit of looking at article history, I found that you added the material on 14 November 2007. The info is interesting, but I've not found a good source for it - so thought I'd ask if you perhaps know of more info about it. I see the same MS thesis used as a source on the Monterey Canyon article for similar content, so we need a WP:RS for that also. Thanks, Vsmith (talk) 03:09, 22 July 2009 (UTC)


Proposed deletion of ALICE (propellant)[edit]

The article ALICE (propellant) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Wikipedia is not a dictionary.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the Proposed Deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The Speedy Deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and Articles for Deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. I dream of horses @ 17:19, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

--I dream of horses @ 17:40, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Tmangray, would it be possible for you to improve the references section on the ALICE article? Of the three refs you've provided, two of them are news stories that don't back up all of the claims you've made in the article, and the third one, a PDF, only links to the first page of the paper. Is it possible to access the rest of the paper online? That would be very helpful. Also, to back up what Horses said, while I can agree she jumped the gun a little bit, you can avoid having such things happen in the future by having referenced statements on the article at the very time it goes live. -- Soap Talk/Contributions 18:40, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Gray's Inn[edit]

I've seen your early work on this article - I'm currently trying to get it to Featured Article status. Any comments on the ongoing Peer Review or tweaks to the article itself would be appreciated. Thanks, Ironholds (talk) 21:54, 3 October 2009 (UTC)

Maritime_Continent[edit]

The link that justified the article is now dead - do you see reason why it should not be Prod'ed or Afd'd? If you wish to support it perhaps you could help find some valid refs somewhere SatuSuro 05:27, 14 December 2009 (UTC)

Well if I knew what Prod'ed or Afd'd meant, I might. Tmangray (talk) 00:27, 15 December 2009 (UTC)

Key System to IER track connection on Shattuck Ave.[edit]

You mention a map showing the connection between Ward & Derby. This is problematical because the SP operated a freight yard at Ward St. until 1950 or so. To access it the train had to go past Ward St. and then back into the yard, so it needed some track along Shattuck Ave. Demoro vol. I locates the crossover at Dwight Way. You mention a photo of the track connection. Does it appear in a publication?

re: Austromerope[edit]

Hi. I don't know what secondary or tertiary source you used, but the original ZooKeys paper describing that new species spelled the name "brasiliensis". I tracked down and fixed the typos. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 138.23.68.6 (talk) 21:26, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Louise Noack Gray[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Louise Noack Gray has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Unsourced for many years and I can't see anything of substance (that is not a Wiki mirror) online. Little claim to notability either, it suggests this is a tribute by a relative?

Speedy deletion nomination of James J. Kenney[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on James J. Kenney requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia.

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.
