Nice work with martian quadranglesEdit

I just noticed how you fleshed out the category pages for the martian quadrangles. Great work. I think the stuff you added more properly belongs in article pages rather than category pages, though, so I'm going through them and splitting them into new pages. Just in case you notice all your stuff vanishing from the category pages and was worried it was being deleted. Bryan Derksen (talk) 18:11, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

  • Hi Bryan, I'm new to Wiki. I think the information I added should be someplace. I'm not sure what you mean by article pages. Also, what do you think should be on the catagory pages? Please advise, as I have planned to upload more pictures from several sources and I wanted to eventually get all geology related to Mars on Wiki. Thanks, Jim. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jimmarsmars (talkcontribs)
    • Look at special:contributions/Bryan Derksen and you will see what he means. One thing you can usefully do is go through and ensure that the word Mars (as a link) appears in the first sentence of every article! Start with those where Bryan's edit is marked (top). — RHaworth (Talk | contribs) 20:06, 16 February 2009 (UTC)
    • Don't worry, everything you added to Wikipedia is still here and looks good to me, I just moved it around a little bit to fit in with the way the rest of the encyclopedia is organized. For example, everything that you wrote at Category:Cebrenia quadrangle (a page in the "category" namespace) is now at Cebrenia quadrangle, which is a full-fledged article in the same namespace as all the other Wikipedia articles. I also made sure to credit you for the additions when I made the move, your user name is linked in my edit summaries. Generally speaking very little content should go into a category page; categories are intended for grouping articles about a subject, not for describing the subject itself in any great detail.
When uploading public domain images you might want to consider uploading them to Wikimedia Commons instead of here on Wikipedia itself. Images on Commons can be used on the English Wikipedia, but also on all the other language versions of Wikipedia as well. As an example you might already be familiar with, File:MarsTopoMap-PIA02031 modest.jpg from Phaethontis quadrangle is an image that's on Commons. There's nothing wrong with continuing to upload your images directly to the English Wikipedia as you have been so far, but eventually it's hoped that all public domain images will be moved over to Commons so you can save us a step by putting them there in the first place.
I had planned to add those Mars links myself eventually, but the next two days are going to be a busy time for me so I doubt I'll get to it right away. Bryan Derksen (talk) 08:36, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the feedback Bryan. What you say makes a lot of sense. I wanted to uplaod the images to Commons, but I did not know how. I have a great deal of trouble understanding all the codes and procedures. I just trying to do what I know how to do. I'm a senior citizen so none of this stuff comes easy. I hope to add my information about Mars in the future. Thanks for the help. Jim````

If Commons is too much trouble, carry on with uploading images directly to English Wikipedia - you've been doing fine with that and they'll get moved over to Commons in the fullness of time by other people. Part of the benefit of this being a collaborative project. :) Bryan Derksen (talk) 07:46, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Aganippe FossaEdit

A tag has been placed on Aganippe Fossa requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. Beach drifter (talk) 22:50, 2 March 2009 (UTC) I hope to add more to this article in a few days. Jim````

FYI: I asked User:Fences and windows to restore the original revision to this article, and he graciously obliged.
— V = IR (Talk • Contribs) 00:52, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

Many thanksEdit

Thanks for your excellent contributions to articles on Mars. Even your stubs, such as Dawes Crater, are great stuff. I wish you a pleasant time as a Wikipedian, and please don't hesitate to give me a nudge if you need assistance with anything. -- Fullstop (talk) 00:09, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the kind words. I love Mars and have a lot of information in my house and in my head. Jim````
That's great! However, please also "wikify" the articles you create, i.e. add links and such. I've fixed up Dawes Crater to give you an idea what I mean. -- Fullstop (talk) 00:47, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the suggestions. I was going to add links eventually. I've wanted to move the images around, but do not know how. I do not know how to type a straight line. I'm not too good with computers and have trouble with directions. My computer knowledge is low. In other words, I'm a senior citizen. Jim Jimmarsmars (talk) 19:00, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Porter CraterEdit

I redirected this article to the already existent Porter (Martian crater) and moved some content. Your version says "Argyre quadrangle of Mars" and the other says "Thaumasia quadrangle". You may want to check which is right. 75.198.110.119 (talk) 02:58, 20 March 2009 (UTC) You are right. Thanks for telling me. Porter Crater should be in Thaumasia quadrangle. Jim ````

I've rigged up the {{MarsGeo-Crater}} template so that it'll automatically categorize a crater into quadrangle categories based on the latitude and longitude parameters. If by some chance it winds up categorizing a crater incorrectly, that could indicate that there's an error in the template (or maybe in the crater's latitude and longitude); feel free to drop a note on my user talk page and I'll see if I can fix whatever's wrong. Complicated templates can be difficult to troubleshoot. Bryan Derksen (talk) 03:09, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

BoobEdit

Please check Mars Boob for validity! 91.104.123.227 (talk) 02:41, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

That was probably a slang term. It would not be approved because features are named after classes as objects. For example, most craters are named after people or towns. Names are suggested, then approved from time to time by a special group of astronomers. At any rate, of all the hundreds of crater names, none has the name "Boob." Jim````

Repeated textEdit

Rather than repeat text about dark slope streaks and fossa in lots of articles you should link to the article instead. If there is duplicated text then it will need to be changed in many articles or become out of date. Thanks, Rich257 (talk) 14:14, 1 May 2009 (UTC) Thanks for the feedback. I'll start changing them. I'm in the middle of added new images from HiRISE, but I will get around to making the changes. Thanks, JimJimmarsmars (talk) 14:17, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

trouble with imageEdit

I did something when I uploaded an image (Jezza Crater JPG.) such that the commentary is ther, but not the image. What should I do? Upload the image with a new title? If so, is there a way to erase the other images? Thanks, JimJimmarsmars (talk) 15:43, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

I can't see anything wrong with the image, but I'm a bit late checking up on it so that doesn't necessarily mean anything. :) I've noticed that sometimes when one uploads an image to Wikipedia it takes a few minutes for the image to get processed and cached properly, so even though it's been uploaded properly it may not show up immediately.
Oh, I've marked the image to be moved over to Wikimedia Commons. For public-domain images such as those from HiRISE it's probably best to put them on Commons, since that way all of the other language versions of Wikipedia can use it as well. There's nothing wrong with uploading them directly to the English Wikipedia, though, so if you'd rather not deal with two separate wikis carry on with how you've been doing it so far. Bryan Derksen (talk) 01:42, 14 June 2009 (UTC)Thanks for the comments. I think it did take the image a while to get processed. Some are processed quickly, so I assumed all should be done quickly. I would want all the images to go to Wikimedia Commons, but I do not know how to do it. I'm barely able to do what I can. When it comes to computers, I'm no superstar. Thanks Again, JimJimmarsmars (talk) 11:31, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
No problem. In theory, it's not much different uploading to Commons than it is uploading to the English Wikipedia. Wikipedia has a unified account system across all of its wikis so you can log in at Commons using your existing username and password. The biggest difference I can think of is actually something that might make things a little easier once you get the hang of it; by default the Commons upload link will take you to a more complex upload form where there are separate spaces for entering things like author, date, and original source. The page's templates get put together automatically from the information you put into these spaces.
But whichever way you do it you're doing fine work. Images can be moved from wiki to wiki quite easily in the long run, the hard part is finding them in the first place. Bryan Derksen (talk) 02:00, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

Editing tipsEdit

As per the policy on linking you only need to link another page once per article or perhaps once per section.

You might also like to read the documentation on the gallery tag — there is no need to have an opening <gallery> tag before each image.

Thanks, Rich257 (talk) 08:07, 29 May 2009 (UTC) Thanks, I'll start making those changes. Jim Jimmarsmars (talk) 14:37, 29 May 2009 (UTC)


File:Ausonia Mensa.JPGEdit

Thank you for uploading images/media to Wikipedia! As you may know, there is another Wikimedia Foundation project called Wikimedia Commons, a central media repository for all free media. In future, please upload media there instead (see m:Help:Unified login). That way, all of the other language Wikipedias can use them too, as well as our many sister projects. This will also allow our visitors to search for, view and use our media in one central location. If you wish to move previous uploads to Commons, see Wikipedia:Moving images to the Commons (you may view previous uploads by going to your user contributions on the left and choosing the 'file' namespace from the drop down box (or see [1]). Please note that non-free content, such as images claimed as fair use, cannot be uploaded to the Wikimedia Commons. Help us spread the word about Commons by informing other users, and please continue uploading!

Water on MarsEdit

  The Space Barnstar
Thanks for your work on a long overdue expansion of Water on Mars.
Fences&Windows 23:03, 10 October 2009 (UTC)


I have been meaning to do the same for months, I even put together material from other Wikipedia articles to use as a basis for expansion. You might find it useful in your editing: User:Fences_and_windows//Water_on_Mars_(draft). I also sketched out a structure for the article and a possible new lead here: User:Fences and windows/Water on Mars (draft 2) Fences&Windows 23:03, 10 October 2009 (UTC)

I tried to cover most of your ideas on the Fences and windows page. I'll eventually get to nearly all of your topics. jim Jimmarsmars (talk) 23:17, 10 October 2009 (UTC)

Merge discussion for Medusae Fossae FormationEdit

  An article that you have been involved in editing, Medusae Fossae Formation, has been proposed for a merge with another article. If you are interested in the merge discussion, please participate by going here, and adding your comments on the discussion page. Thank you. Grafen (talk) 08:21, 12 December 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the response here. I have replied there. If you let me know the best title, I will be happy to do the mechanics. Grafen (talk) 20:24, 12 December 2009 (UTC)
OK. I have merged them to Medusae Fossae Formation, but the text is now a cut and paste and could do with some editing to make it look good and consistent, by someone like you who knows about it.
For what it is worth, I had a look at the other language wikis linked. The French has some information about when the region was identified or mapped. A rough translation, without the French language references:
I can't understand the Chinese text, but it shows a big false colour map on Commons that you could use:

Geology of MarsEdit

Hey, nice work! My only criticism is that the whole article is a bit long. I'm reading though it now though, and while I could and probably will, eventually) nit pick some things, it's well written. Me might want to think about, and talk about, splitting the article out into several spinout articles.
— V = IR (Talk • Contribs) 18:55, 12 March 2010 (UTC)

Thanks! Yes, it is a bit long, but it is a large topic. I'm open to suggestions. Jim Jimmarsmars (talk) 20:14, 13 March 2010 (UTC)
Don't worry too much about it now, just keep going until you feel that all of the content it deserves is on the article. We can talk about it from that point.
— V = IR (Talk • Contribs) 06:46, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

Image templatesEdit

When you get a chance, you ought to familiarize yourself with Template:Double image and the other templates in Category:Graphic templates. I like what you're doing with the Mars related articles, but over-using galleries makes the article layout a bit messy. Besides, if you use the templates (or tables) then you can put the images to the left or right, and adjust their size.
— V = IR (Talk • Contribs) 01:19, 17 March 2010 (UTC)

Thanks, I would love to rearrange some of my images, but I do not know how. I've tried various things, but they do not work for me. I'll try to look over what you suggest. At this point, I want to adjust the galleries by grouping images and adding a short description before the group. For example, I will group the craters together with a short section about what craters tell us. I think there are now representative images of most places on Mars. Time is ripe for organizing them. I just went though the last release of HiRISE images from a few days ago. I'm in the process of uploading a few more images. I like to keep the articles up to date, and have the most recent images. With traditional publishing, one can not do this. Usually, the same image is used over and over for years, when better ones are available if one searches for them. Jim Jimmarsmars (talk) 11:35, 17 March 2010 (UTC)
I completely understand the issues surrounding the learning curve involved in using wikitext. I'm perfectly willing to help with any questions that you may have, just let me know. I think that you're doing great work, even if you're not knowledgeable about the more esoteric wikitext language, which is terrific! So, regardless of anything else, just keep doing what you're doing, and we'll take care of the minor formatting and style things as time goes by. Your stated plan here is perfect, and I completely agree what Wikipedia is a unique new environment. If you have any questions about anything feel free to ask, either here or on my own talk page. Regards,

Mars quadrangle mapsEdit

Some of your Mars quadrangle maps contain typos that you should fix. Also, can you get rid of the red underline? Two examples below. Thanks. MER-C 05:34, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for checking these. It's often difficult to see one's own mistakes. I'm not sure if I can easily change these maps because I do not have access to the computer and programs that created them. I have thought of replacing the old quadrangle maps with better ones. The better ones I can't seem to work with on my computer. So, for now I'll have to put the maps on the back burner. If anyone else out there would like to upgrade the maps, please do. I think we need maps that show the major features and the features that have been shown to have interesting geology.

My edits to Mare Boreum quadrangleEdit

Hello, I think you created the Mare Boreum quadrangle and wrote most of the content, so I just wanted to make contact. You will notice that I've moved most of the content off the page, leaving it very short. I wanted to clarify that I did not delete the material! I just moved it to more appropriate articles.

The material on the polar ice cap was excellent, but it made more sense on the Martian polar ice caps page because anyone looking for info on the ice caps will naturally go there first. Similarly, I moved the excellent writing on the Phoenix landing site to Vastitas Borealis, because the writing is not about 'the surface of Mare Boreum', but rather the specific surface of Vastitas Borealis, the region in which the Phoenix landed.

I just wanted to stress that I think your writing is superb. My reasons for moving it is so that it will get better visibility from readers. In general, it would probably be a good idea to do this to all the 'quadrangle' pages; it would be better to use them as short 'signposts' to other articles, rather than putting detailed information on them, since the detailed information will almost always work better on the articles dealing with specific geological sites.

Anyway, I just wanted to explain myself and any future edits that I might do. Cheers! Arsia Mons (talk) 18:27, 11 August 2012 (UTC) Thanks for the kind words about my writing. When I started writing on Wiki a few years ago, not much was known about many places on Mars. Since then there has been an explosion of excellent photos and infomation. Things at this point could be better organized. Your efforts are a good start. I want to go bact to all the quadrangles and write a good summary of all that is in the quadrangle. I also want to make sure that there are pictures of most of the main scenes, surfaces, and geological concepts for landscapes in each quadrangle. Some of us would approach a question by starting with a quadrangle, then moving with links to other articles. I will try to start with Mare Boreum quadrangle so you can get a sense of what I mean. I love to wrtie about Mars, but I do not understand how to do very much on Wikipedia. Thanks for the comments.Jimmarsmars (talk) 13:44, 16 August 2012 (UTC)

Hi, that's great. I agree that some users (especially geologists) will begin on the quadrangle pages, but I think you're right that a summary with lots of links to other articles will make things more user-friendly and make both scientists and casual readers happy. I might have a go at moving some stuff around the other quadrangle pages, but I doubt I will get to them all. Once I again, I really like your work! Cheers, Arsia Mons (talk) 16:00, 17 August 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Mare Acidalium map.JPGEdit

 

A tag has been placed on File:Mare Acidalium map.JPG requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an image licensed as "for non-commercial use only," "non-derivative use" or "used with permission," it has not been shown to comply with the limited standards for the use of non-free content. [2], and it was either uploaded on or after 2005-05-19, or is not used in any articles. If you agree with the deletion, there is no need to do anything. If, however, you believe that this image may be retained on Wikipedia under one of the permitted conditions then:

  • state clearly the source of the image. If it has been copied from elsewhere on the web you should provide links to: the image itself, the page which uses it and the page which contains the license conditions.
  • add the relevant copyright tag.

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.

  Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Aeolis quadrangle may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "<>"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a search with the contents of Perepelkin (Martian crater), and it appears to be very similar to another Wikipedia page: Perepelkin Crater. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case. If you are intentionally trying to rename an article, please see Help:Moving a page for instructions on how to do this without copying and pasting. If you are trying to move or copy content from one article to a different one, please see Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia and be sure you have acknowledged the duplication of material in an edit summary to preserve attribution history.

Your contributed article, Perepelkin CraterEdit

 

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.

Hello, I noticed that you recently created a new page, Perepelkin Crater. First, thank you for your contribution; Wikipedia relies solely on the efforts of volunteers such as you. Unfortunately, the page you created covers a topic on which we already have a page – Perepelkin (Martian crater). Because of the duplication, your article has been tagged for speedy deletion. Please note that this is not a comment on you personally and we hope you will continue helping to improve Wikipedia. If the topic of the article you created is one that interests you, then perhaps you would like to help out at Perepelkin (Martian crater) – you might like to discuss new information at the article's talk page.

If you think the article you created should remain separate, 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. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here. Additionally if you would like to have someone review articles you create before they go live so they are not nominated for deletion shortly after you post them, allow me to suggest the article creation process and using our search feature to find related information we already have in the encyclopedia. Try not to be discouraged. Wikipedia looks forward to your future contributions. Sjö (talk) 15:46, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

I'm sorry for my mistake. I seemed to have caused a lot of problems. I'll try to explain what happen, and what I would like to happen. I love astronomy, but am not real good with computers and the methods of Wikipedia. I wanted to write an article about the Mars crater Perepelkin. But there happens to be a lunar crater by that name. So, I tried to make one with the title of Perepelkin (Martian crater). However, my efforts did not work. I do not know what to do and can't understand the directions. We could just skip this crater, if you want. But, I do not know how to delete the article. Please do not just send me to some page, as I said I do not understand computers and Wikipedia's language. Sorry for causing so many problems.

Content on Martian crater articlesEdit

Hi Jimmarsmars, I thought I'd mention something I've been seeing on a few of your Martian crater articles.

HiView and HiRISE imagesEdit

Howdy. I see you upload a lot of HiRISE imagery, which is good (I've started doing so, too). I do wonder if you are using HiView to its fullest potential, though. In File:Esp 036815 2330pedestallobe.jpg I noticed that you have taken a screenshot of the program itself. Instead, you can just use the File --> Save option in HiView and save the current portion of the image you are viewing. If you set the scale option to 1, you can save the cropped image at full resolution (which might sometimes be a bad idea due to image size). If you already knew this, then disregard.

Another thing: according to the webpages of HiRISE, the correct attribution for their images is NASA/JPL/University of Arizona, which should go in the Author field when you upload the images.

Six years old somewhat spurious edit ?Edit

Hello Jimmarsmars,

The current version of our article on Viking 1 (and Viking 2) contains this text 'gas chromatograph-mass spectrometer (GSMS0]' added by you. In this context the acronym 'GSMS0' makes little sense, and since also the parentheses are not really balanced, I was wondering if you could double check that no typo has occurred ?

Copying within Wikipedia requires proper attributionEdit

  Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you copied or moved text from Water on Mars into Diacria quadrangle. While you are welcome to re-use Wikipedia's content, here or elsewhere, Wikipedia's licensing does require that you provide attribution to the original contributor(s). When copying within Wikipedia, this is supplied at minimum in an edit summary at the page into which you've copied content, disclosing the copying and linking to the copied page, e.g., copied content from [[page name]]; see that page's history for attribution. It is good practice, especially if copying is extensive, to also place a properly formatted {{copied}} template on the talk pages of the source and destination. The attribution has been provided for this situation, but if you have copied material between pages before, even if it was a long time ago, please provide attribution for that duplication. You can read more about the procedure and the reasons at Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia. Thank you. If you are the sole author of the prose that was moved, attribution is not required. — Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 12:43, 6 June 2017 (UTC) I'm sorry I thought I had wrote that passage or most of it.

Please stop adding the same essay to dozens of articles on Mars cratersEdit

I noticed that you added a section called "Why are craters important?" to dozens of articles about Mars craters. That's not the right way to proceed. This information should be in just one place, e.g. Geology of Mars or Impact crater. In addition, the material you added sounds like a personal essay, which may not be appropriate for an encyclopedia, but you can discuss this with your fellow editors at Talk:Geology of Mars or Talk:Impact crater. I have reverted a couple of your edits, on Adams (Martian crater) and Tyndall (Martian crater); please undo the rest by yourself. Kind regards, — JFG talk 23:10, 4 August 2017 (UTC)

I concur with JFG. I'll give you a day or two to see these messages, then I'll start rolling things back. Primefac (talk) 15:21, 5 August 2017 (UTC)

After some thought, I see your point. If you are in a hurry to change the articles, please do so, as I may not be able to change them all right away because I'm going into surgery early next week. Also, my work on the craters was an attempt to change the "stub" classification by expanding. Do you have any specific suggestions how I could do this? There is very little information on many of the craters at present. Thank you. Jimmarsmars (talk) 18:56, 5 August 2017 (UTC)

Permastubs are perfectly acceptable. There might not ever be a lot of information about the smaller craters on Mars. Most will never have articles (and in fact, the majority are simply redirects to the "List of" articles). Being a stub isn't a bad thing, necessarily, it's just a measure of how much information is on a page. If there isn't any information, well, you get a stub. Primefac (talk) 19:00, 5 August 2017 (UTC)
Exactly; stubs are good, and I see you added plenty of pictures, so that's even better. At the end of the day, there is not much to say about Crater A vs Crater B. We have a similar situation with comets and asteroids / minor planets. Now when a probe visits Crater A and settlers build a village in Crater B, data will expand.
Good luck with your surgery, and no worries about the time frame. WP:There is no deadline. — JFG talk 19:46, 5 August 2017 (UTC)
I think it would be relevant to add a few sentences about the nearest named geological features (see e.g. these maps). This would help the reader navigate, and, provided som familiarity with Mars, the reader will also recognise some of the names occasionally and thus better understand where the feature is located, and its geological context.
For example, as can be seen from the MC-7 map, Tyndall is located just east of Phlegra Montes and west of Phlegra Dorsa, on or west of Arcadia Planitia and a good distance south of Stokes crater.
Good luck with your surgery. --Njardarlogar (talk) 08:50, 6 August 2017 (UTC)
Yes, adding some geographical context would be a great idea! Perhaps have a general article template which includes an overview map of the area, with links to other articles about the nearest features. — JFG talk 09:34, 6 August 2017 (UTC) Thanks for the comments and suggestions. I was working under the assumption that the crater articles would be removed after a short time if they were not made longer.Jimmarsmars (talk) 14:40, 7 August 2017 (UTC)
