G'day! This is Andrew Alder's user talk page, you knew that. Welcome!
|If you'd like to see what I'm doing, this is how I do that|
|If I left you a message on your talk page, please respond there, I am watching your talk page. That's of course unless the message at your talk page was a mere heads-up as to progress on a discussion here or on another talk page, in which case probably best to continue the discussion where it is.
I prefer to discuss issues regarding any particular article, policy etc. at its talk page, so if I'm already involved in a discussion there's no need to fork the discussion to here, and if not then a simple heads-up here with a link to the relevant talk page and section is best. Be aware of the canvassing guidelines, but if you're just asking me for advice rather than a whole list of people there should be no problem there.
Please don't censor my talk page. Just because you don't support what someone else is saying is no reason to remove it. Is it now? (You wouldn't think I had to say that, but I have learned otherwise.)On the other hand, if the edits you are removing are by banned users (or their socks), then please feel free to do it. That's not censorship, it's administrative drudgery, and I thank you for taking it on. But if there's doubt as to who the contributor really is, or if the proposed ban is not yet in force, or both, better to leave me to clean up my own page. (And again I would have thought that was obvious to all, but have learned otherwise.) A non-abusive heads-up on the antics of the contributor, in reply to what they have said or done here, is always appreciated. TIA!

As I noticed you on the talk page, please check this out and let me know what you think.
2012 Yale University systematic review and Harmonization
"The collective LCA literature indicates that life cycle GHG emissions from nuclear power are only a fraction of traditional fossil sources and comparable to renewable technologies."
It went on to note that for the most common category of reactors, the Light water reactor:
The study noted that differences between emissions scenarios were:
"The electric system was dominated by nuclear (or renewables) and a system dominated by coal can result in a fairly large ranging (from 4 to 22 g CO2-eq/kWh) compared to (30 to 110 g CO2-eq/kWh), respectively."
The study predicted that depending on a number of variables, including how carbon intensive the electricity supply was in the future, and the quality of Uranium ore:
"median life cycle GHG emissions could be 9 to 110 g CO2-eq/kWh by 2050."

You've got mailEdit
Road Case/Flight case mergeEdit
Agreed. I think that someone looking for encyclopaedic information on this topic would not differentiate between a flight or road case and would want all the information available in one article. Indeed, it would make Wikipedia more concise to merge. A visitor may not know there's any difference anyway, and not look for the other article at all.
Cuban missile crisis or Cuban Missile CrisisEdit
There is currently another vote taking place on the talk page of Cuban missile crisis whether to recapitalize the name or keep it in lowercase. You participated in the 2012 vote, and may want to voice an opinion or comment on this one. I'm writing this to the voters from 2012 who may not know about this vote.

HI JUST TESTING
German Christians RM closeEdit
When you closed the move for German Christians, it left hundreds of incoming links incorrectly pointing to the wrong target (Special:WhatLinksHere/German_Christians). Fixing the incoming links to point to the right place is required of the closer in Wikipedia:Requested moves/Closing instructions. (t · c) buidhe 08:27, 16 July 2020 (UTC)
- Quite right! Wikipedia:Requested moves/Closing instructions#Primary topic page moves to be precise.
- If you check or fix any of them please just remove the entry from User:Andrewa/sandbox (just to save doubling up on the effort).
- There probably is a way to automate it but not in my field of expertise. Andrewa (talk) 11:37, 16 July 2020 (UTC)
Archive pages and talk pages should not IMO be changed to reflect the move. But perhaps a hatnote should be added to the article for the benefit of those who follow these mislinkings? I don't think there is a suitable template for this at present. Perhaps there should be. Andrewa (talk) 19:07, 1 August 2020 (UTC)
And what is becoming obvious is that there is a lot of text repeated in many of these articles. I must wonder whether some of it is insidious copyvios. That is, copying text from one article to another without leaving any attribution trail. Food for thought? Andrewa (talk) 19:23, 1 August 2020 (UTC)
Finished I think. Only two articles now link, see
