New Article Suggestion[edit]

You might be interested to write an article about this invention - it is well relevant to the topics you have written about. I cannot do it on my own it will be a violation of Wikipedia rules but I will gladly answer all your questions (User ID – NewGarmash or (talk) 21:24, 28 July 2015 (UTC)


if possible, please upload both a small and a large version of images and link to the larger one using a [[Media:foo.jpg]] link. The very small pictures are not very informative. --Eloquence 15:48 13 Jun 2003 (UTC)

Thanks for the tip - I will do that when available Trelvis 18:22 13 Jun 2003 (UTC)

Hiroshima diray[edit]

Are you going to paste that journal link (the Hiroshima diary) somewhere else in the Wikipedia? If so, please evaluate whether it's a "gosh-I-sure-suffered" diary or more of a "see-what-meanies-those-war-mongering-Americans" diary.

I only bring this up because the last 20 years, there's been a trend to play up the "awfulness" of America's treatment of Japanese during WWII while downplaying Japan's actions. (Kind of ignoring the vice versa). --Uncle Ed 20:35, 25 Sep 2003 (UTC)

why cut cold fusion history link ?[edit]

I was wondering why you cut the cold fusion link. I added it because it gives a first hand account of the history of cold fusion. Maybe it should be labeled or placed differently ? Pcarbonn 18:43, 24 May 2004 (UTC)

The link is to a page which presents a fairly small piece of the overall history - specifically how Utah worked dishonestly with Jones and BYU - much of the article is in the form of cursory notes, and the article is part of an overall collection of cold fusion articles which we already have a link to. I thought that as a whole this specific page did not warrant an extra link, as it is not especially clear and does not summarize the events cohesively. I think if some of the events explained in this article about Jones' previous work at BYU were in the article and this page was listed as a reference of some sort, that it would be an appropriate link, but do not think it should be listed as a general informational link.
PS - Pcarbonn - I think you are doing a good job editing the cold fusion page, and appreciate your work. Trelvis 00:19, May 25, 2004 (UTC)
OK. Thanks for the feedback. This is more clear now.

I'm curious about the naming of the articles for inertial fusion energy and magnetic fusion energy. I've never heard either used, and I'd say I am at least fairly aware of the going-ons in the field. Why not inertial confinement fusion for instance, which gets at least 3 times as many hits on google, and is the almost universal term in encyclopedia-type level works? I just wrote Project Longshot and wanted to link to an ICF page, and couldn't even find it with search which strikes me as particularily bad.

== Article Licensing ==

Hi, I've started a drive to get users to multi-license all of their contributions that they've made to either (1) all U.S. state, county, and city articles or (2) all articles, using the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike (CC-by-sa) v1.0 and v2.0 Licenses or into the public domain if they prefer. The CC-by-sa license is a true free documentation license that is similar to Wikipedia's license, the GFDL, but it allows other projects, such as WikiTravel, to use our articles. Since you are among the top 2000 Wikipedians by edits, I was wondering if you would be willing to multi-license all of your contributions or at minimum those on the geographic articles. Over 90% of people asked have agreed. For More Information:

To allow us to track those users who muli-license their contributions, many users copy and paste the "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" template into their user page, but there are other options at Template messages/User namespace. The following examples could also copied and pasted into your user page:

Option 1
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions, with the exception of my user pages, as described below:


Option 2
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions to any [[U.S. state]], county, or city article as described below:

Or if you wanted to place your work into the public domain, you could replace "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" with "{{MultiLicensePD}}". If you only prefer using the GFDL, I would like to know that too. Please let me know what you think at my talk page. It's important to know either way so no one keeps asking. -- Ram-Man (comment| talk)

Trinity anniversary[edit]

July 16, 2005 —two months from now—will be the 60th anniversary of the "Trinity" test. I'm trying to organize a few people into getting that article to featured quality before then, anticipating a lot of general news coverage and curious minds. I've noticed you doing good work on Manhattan Project-related articles in the past, so I thought I would see if you were interested in helping out. Please see the discussion at Talk:Trinity site for some of my further thoughts on what should be present in the article, and please feel free to share you own. Thanks! --Fastfission 19:04, 15 May 2005 (UTC)


"Since no known material can withstand the hundred-million degree temperatures required for any nuclear fusion reaction only magnetic fields can confine the plasma. Confining the plasma in a magnetic field also assures a good insulation which makes it easier to heat." I noticed that you removed the paragraph above from the tokamak article. For the non-plasma scientist I think this explains in general why the impetus to use magnetic fields, and the donut shape. Any way to simplistically introduce this concept to non-plasma scientists?

Nuclear fusion[edit]

Hi, Trelvis. I understand that you are the original creator of the Nuclear fusion article. This article is rated as an A-class article. I think that it is worth to be nominated to be FAC, if it will be better referenced. However, without additional references it should be downgraded to the B-class. Maybe you could add the missing references?Beagel (talk) 07:27, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

Please help save Repo Man movie article[edit]

Dear Trelvis,

This guy, Dædαlus, is in there trying to remove parts that I think you, I and many others contributed to the Repo Man article. Please add to the bottom of this thread on the Repo Man talk page that you think the "Notable Motifs" section should not be blanked (erased), but left as is since the Pulp Fiction article also has a "Notable Motifs" section that isn't being considered for removal at all (even by Dædαlus himself).

While I agree that the "Notable Motifs" section could use some work, it certainly won't help the article to delete the whole thing and erase all our work which consists of many multiple contributers over a course of years. I'm willing to work on it and better incorporate it into the article, he just wants to delete it all!

With consensus, we can stop this guy from deleting all our work soon!

Thanks in advance. Cowicide (talk) 01:50, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

Your user page[edit]

I found your old user page while checking out some old edits. I have history merged it, so that all edits are in one place. Hope you don't mind. Graham87 03:01, 6 October 2009 (UTC)
