Mars Curse[edit]

You were right, that the phrasing was bad... I went back in and edited it to make it clear that 13 of 36 overall missions succeeded, and 5 of 11 landing tries succeeded. Good catch. That's the sort of stuff that someone who's been editing forever and knows the subject so well we don't have to read it all for comprehension usually miss. Thanks...

Hi Ben. I'm glad to see the start of a Lunar and Planetary Laboratory article. I might suggest that you crop the text out of the logo image. --BlueMoonlet 03:45, 21 May 2006 (UTC)

Spamlink?[edit]

Regarding your reversion of my reversion, the web site in question has a Google PageRank of 2/10 and an Alexa Ranking of about 2,150,828. That means the web site isn't notable enough to be included as an external link on Wikipedia. There was someone who said that if a web site will benefit greatly from being included on Wikipedia, it's not notable enough to be included on Wikipedia. That's what I believe, and that's why I removed the link (note that I still kept the name of the event when I removed the link). Now, I don't get into a habit of getting into a revert war, so that's why I'm bringing this up in your talk page, and I'd like you to reconsider. Thanks, --Deathphoenix ʕ 00:26, 26 May 2006 (UTC)

No problems. Do you mind if I revert back to my version? --Deathphoenix ʕ 02:52, 26 May 2006 (UTC)

Under the table[edit]

Hey, I just wanted to say that what you're doing with the MRO page is AWESOME - it's really come a long way since the first time I saw it. Also, I know you've been editing it a lot longer than I have and I didn't want to piss anyone off by jumping in too fast. But now I see that I'm doing it anyway.  :) Anyway, I'm not easily offended and I take you to be one of the leads (if not THE lead) on the article (if there is such a thing). Please revert my changes if they're too annoying (will/koeppen). --will 04:06, 1 June 2006 (UTC)

Guess we're on grammar duty now. Thanks for pushing this stuff at the FAC - I just read the comments and am trying to work through the article again with a more discerning eye.--will 06:13, 21 June 2006 (UTC)
Hey, so I didn't know if you had any particular desire to keep the sentence you just added to MRO science operations and extended mission section, but I think it says [almost exactly] the same thing as the sentence directly preceding it. I just didn't want to delete it if there was something specific you were going for. In your edit summary you said something to the effect of "adding more than just HiRISE stuff", but I think the previous sentence is so general (studying geology, atmosphere, climate, weather, and ice) that it certainly applies to all the instruments.--Koeppen 22:56, 22 June 2006 (UTC)

Viking[edit]

Hello, I was on the Lander engineering team for the Viking landers at the Martin Marietta plant in Colorado, worked on the lander simulation software and component level testing for three years. I was wondering if any of the softer anecdotes and might be useful in the articles. For example, I know details about the loss of communications that Lander 2 went through during descent, and I know a lot of engineering detail on the landers as well.

MRO[edit]

Do you know more info about the solar conjunction mentioned on the MRO page? Is it from October 7 to November 8, 2006 or is it an N day thing that will happen somewhere in that period? -Ravedave (help name my baby) 02:29, 31 August 2006 (UTC)

That does help. I have clarified the article so it says "from". Also I noticed that the cubesat you worked on got blown to smithereens. That sucks, are more being built? -Ravedave (help name my baby) 04:46, 31 August 2006 (UTC)

Hi, it has been suggested here that the project WikiProject Mars spacecraft is to be depreciated. It's proposed that its duties be split between WikiProject Mars, and WikiProject Space Exploration, in order to increase the critical mass.

AfD nomination of Hallow[edit]

An editor has nominated Hallow, an article on which you have worked or that you created, for deletion. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not"). Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Hallow and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~). You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate. Thank you. Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it.

titles of DH[edit]

Why have you removed the quote for representatives for JKR saying they "often registered spares" etc...

It brings a bit of neutrality to all this "registered titles" thing, and without it, the reader has the impression that the 2 similar titles are indeed the ones, and we still don't know that.

We have to put things in a neutral way, in order not to impose the readers any opinion. Like "we can note a similarity with these titles, however it doesn't mean anything yet since WB have admitted they often registered spare titles, so these 2 titles could be spares, or not, we don't know". But just saying "there are 2 similar titles period" is a bit disturbing for the readers, either they don't understand what's going on whith "registered titles", or they are going to assume these titles are necessarily the ones, since they have no more info on the subject warning them about potential spare titles...Folken de Fanel 20:32, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

update: I've just seen you've just removed the mention of "registered titles". In my opinion it's the best solution, since it will avoid future fights concerning how the thing should be presented so as not to sound too OR, etc. Since in fact we don't know anything, we indeed should avoid unnecessary and obscure hypotheses barely sourced and which are likely to bring NPOV concerns...Folken de Fanel 20:37, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

I agree that on such a controversial subject, we should avoid, well...controversies ! After all, these are still attempts at guessing things we have no way to know for sure. We're still in the dark.
I'm not targetting anyone in particular, but it's true there are many who are indeed more interested in speculating than being stricly encyclopedical, and we should try to make these people understand this is just not the right focus for now. We should keep away from such controversial matters, where it's impossible to have more/better external sources which would make them less OR-ish...
I mean, the book is out on July 21st, only 3 months from now...It's just not worth all the troubles. We have more important things to care about, than to lose our time with controversial speculations and in disputes of the kind...There are matters, in my opinion, more pressing than speculations about a book that is out in 3 little months, and it would just bring too much wars for too little benefits.Folken de Fanel 21:07, 19 April 2007 (UTC)
If you believe that Folken, then I suggest you take your own advice. Sandpiper 21:42, 19 April 2007 (UTC)
update: well, the sad thing is that we're dealing with the 2 most mule-headed and self-centered users on Wikipedia. There have been conflicts with those 2 for months now. I think we should settle this issue once and for all, because obviously, if we don't do anything, we'll have the same fights over and over for the 3 next months. Folken de Fanel 21:26, 19 April 2007 (UTC)
well that one made me laugh, too. In two years I have never had a disagreement with anyone on HP to the extent that I disagree with Folken's edits and approach. The next most likely would be with Michael, but a long way behind. Sandpiper 21:42, 19 April 2007 (UTC)
Uhm, can you please keep fighting, name calling, etc, to places other than my talk page? Thanks! Tuvas 22:09, 19 April 2007 (UTC)
I think you voluntarily joined in with the argument? Sandpiper 19:53, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

Help Needed with Cydonia article[edit]

Hello Tuvas ! I've just been defending myself on the Cydonia Mars talk page Cydonia_(Mars). At least I defended my honour, kinda thing. LOL! I think I'm right overall, but I'm NOT sure if I'm right in terms of Wikipedia editing. User:Mikker said "This is an article about a scientific topic, hence NPOV requires us to present the scientific consensus. The scientific consensus is that there is nothing to see. If you disagree with this consensus, I suggest you do some research, publish it in a peer-reviewed science journal and try to convince the scientific community. THEN if you convince them, come back here". Is this right ? Look at my answer. I have included the example of an article on the paranormal not including the mention of psychics because it's "not Scientifically proven". Even so I'm on shaky ground. After a certain Richard C Hoalgland introduced his nuuttery to the field, it's been almost impossible to talk about Cydonia in any terms without getting guffawed at ! :( BUT there are published papers and research about Cydonia. There IS a five sided "Pyramid" at Cydonia that is CLEARLY visible on images. It is not a mirage or hallucination. In fact Cydonia is covered with strange looking geology. None of this is covered in the article! Don't you find this strange ? It COULD just be geology, and I guess Wikipedia is certainly not the place to put my own private speculations about them. But they ARE major features! I am uncertain how to proceed. At this rate I WILL put together a peer reviewed paper anyway! But Tuvas, what worries me is the "It must be Scientific" slant to any of these kind of articles. Is that really Encyclopedic in Wikipedia terms ? Is'nt Wikipedia supposed to be breaking away with the big establishment Scientific ideas ? I dont know, the whole spirit of the thing seems wrong! Like a re-run of stuffy paper encylopedia editing. When was Wikipedia ever some bastion of Scientific truth ? DJ Barney 01:12, 24 May 2007 (UTC)

Thanks Tuvas! I'm glad the tone of the discussion seemed to calm down. I won't put anything else there until I have considered this (on the Cydonia talk page). The current editors seem to have a point. The Wikipedia article they cite (NPOV) says that minority subjects don't have a place on Wikiepedia. I can see why. Otherwise Wikipedia becomes somebodies pet publicity trumpet for a subject. This is not my intention with the Cydonia article. I have seen some very valid research that is published out there that just happens to get missed because of the prevailing view. It would be nice to have it all referenced in one place ! After all this is the point of Wikipedia ! But I wonder if I should start a seperate "minority subject" article ? This would stop unecessary conflict on the main Cydonia article. I think I will just be constantly hounded and a proper article will never be completed ! A seperate article would be more sucessful and better maintained and would probably reflect the sociological state of the field. DJ Barney 18:20, 24 May 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the star[edit]

Thank you for giving me a star on The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints article. It was wholly unexpected and brightened my day. Thanks again for the kindness! Cheers. --Storm Rider (talk) 19:38, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

Deathly Hallows[edit]

Re: Please don't make edits again on the section Deathly Hallows until a complete consensus has been made. Right now AFAIK, you are the only one of the major editors to the article that is totally in favor of including more information. There are parts of me that are in favor of adding some of the information, but anything would be very limited, and I think I'm the only one who would even consider that much, again, AFAIK. I must warn you however, due to your long history of debate over such subjects, that if you continue to add in content in that section unless it has been agreed in a consensus, then I will have to pursue further action, possibly even to the level of talking outside of the page. I understand your enthusiasm, I've also been involved in some edit wars, at least two of them which made it to WP:LAME, both of which I lost to a degree, and given the chance, I'd bring the debates right back up. But this much I will state, that I am most in favor of finding a way to please all involved parties, and if that can't be done, then I will go with the flow of people. I should also add that I'm not afraid to take further action if needed, although I don't want to do so. You have made many valuable contributions to many articles, and I really don't want to have to do something that might stop that, but this much I will have to add. Sometimes, you just have to let it go. Tuvas 21:26, 18 May 2007 (UTC)

Further to our continued debate on the talk page. I still do not consider that you answered my observation, that essentailly you were agreeing that the disputed content was admissable under wiki rules. I am therefore inclined to proceed on the assumption that you do agree this. Sandpiper 11:29, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

Need Advice about "warzone" article[edit]

Hello Tuvas! I hope you can help me with this or pass me onto someone who can :) I want to edit the article Eli Lilly and Company, but am unsure. Apart from adding a nor-refs box and making some comments on the talk page I have deliberately not waded in as this article looks like a war zone to me! The page that did have references, although probably not NPOV, has been removed and put on the talk page. Should it even be quoted on the talk page ? It makes that whole page difficult to read. What is article, what is talk ? Ahhh! I'm not sure, but there seems to have been a lot of vandalism going on and the article has been forked as well (against guidelines). What do you think? Is there a way to approach this kind of thing. Wade in and edit anyway and cross my fingers ? Hmmm. A controversial article. Bush is mentioned. It's a Pharmaceutical company. There are some BIG problems in this industry at the moment, I know from personal experience. DJ Barney 22:07, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

If you wish to make a clean break with the Project you may move your name to the Known to have left section. Many thanks.

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Roran.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Roran.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box.

Non-free rationale for File:MRO CTX camera.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:MRO CTX camera.jpg.

If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 09:54, 13 August 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 28[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Falcon Heavy, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Red Dragon. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
