An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect List of current IPL team rosters. Since you had some involvement with the List of current IPL team rosters redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion (if you have not already done so).

Life-cycle greenhouse-gas emissions of energy sourcesEdit

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

A Yale University review published in the Journal of Industrial Ecology analyzing CO2 life cycle assessment emissions from nuclear power determined that.[1]

"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:

"Harmonization decreased the median estimate for all LWR technology categories so that the medians of BWRs, PWRs, and all LWRs are similar, at approximately 12 g CO2-eq/kWh"

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."

Merger ProposalEdit

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.

What is the procedure for getting a merge to happen once it's been flagged on a talk page?Black Stripe (talk) 14 July 2013.

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.

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).
On second thought I found that list more trouble than it was worth and am just using this link instead. Only a few to go. Andrewa (talk) 19:07, 1 August 2020 (UTC)
There probably is a way to automate it but not in my field of expertise. Andrewa (talk) 11:37, 16 July 2020 (UTC)

Not sure of List of religions and spiritual traditions... thoughts welcome. Andrewa (talk) 08:31, 18 July 2020 (UTC)

Whew! 34 occurrences in that article. Overlinked? Arguably. Andrewa (talk) 02:06, 23 July 2020 (UTC)

Make that 35. Andrewa (talk) 02:54, 23 July 2020 (UTC)

Only five here but two of them in successive paragraphs. Andrewa (talk) 23:53, 23 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)

Egli-Figuren appears to be correctly linked to the new redirect. I think that is the first I have found. Andrewa (talk) 11:12, 3 August 2020 (UTC)

Finished I think. Only two articles now link, see


one of which is the legitimate redir to section hatnote and the other seems to also be a correct linking. Andrewa (talk) 11:53, 3 August 2020 (UTC)
