Welcome to my mess. Occasionally I clean it up.

Leave me a message by editing this page. (click "Edit" right next to "Discussion" at the top of this page)

Please sign with '~~~~' or leave your contact information if not logged in. You may also contact me at the Moon Society Forum.

lol: I thought I left a redirect on your personal page after I page-jacked it. I did the whole thing because a) there was a link to the person page in question from a template (which I actually found after moving the thing) and b) the personal page in questions kept showing up in the lists of pages needing fixing (the real reason) and c) it was a handy thing that people other than you might need.

I'm trying to clean up this mess, not make it worse! Why would I jack a page and not leave things working correctly? :lol: Rose/Miros 01:50, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, one of my attempts to fix some dead links and such ballooned out of control. So yep, we've got a bunch of new templates borrowed from Wikipedia. Rose/Miros 11:03, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

BTW, I'm in the process of removing the ballooned templates and pages. Recheck to see if your desired template is still there. If it disappears, reimport or ask me to do so. Rose/Miros 12:18, 19 November 2008 (UTC)


Sorry, I accidentally uploaded the wrong image to Marspedia. Could you please delete it? Thanks. T.Neo 20:45, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

A problem on Lunarpedia

Anonymous IP's have edited Strangelv's User:talk page with no response. There is a new user account that has been started in the Russian language. I suspect illegal activity abusing Lunarpedia's undefended condition. I suggest the temporary prohibition of new accounts on Lunarpedia until this gets sorted out. There should be a policy of english language only on Lunarpedia pages if that policy does not exist already. This is a crisis that I hope we can come through. I am sorry that I am not in position to take on administrative responsibilities for Lunarpedia at present. I am willing to look into what would be needed. Anonymous edits at Lunarpedia should also be temporarily disabled.--Farred 16:56, 23 November 2009 (UTC)

something to delete

Hi James, we have a bunch of files and other stuff to delete on Marspedia. No sysops seem to be around for months. Can you please help us? Thanks! -- Rfc 20:36, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Is there something wrong with my hints on Marsp:User_talk:PPark? What is your opinion about Russian/Cyrillic contents? What is your opinion about my other hints? You seem to welcome the import of whole existing documents. I am afaid Marspedia is (mis)used as mere web space for another project. I would like to develop a common understanding of how Marspedia should act. The policies are not quite clear. -- Rfc 08:40, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

non Mars related advertising on Marspedia site

Hello Jarogers, New User:4400 has put a link to Puma shoes on his user page. I do not think this is the sort of contribution Marspedia seeks. I do not know if the corporation has anything to do with this. I could start with a comment on User:4400's talk page, but editing User:4400's user page may be necessary. I thought I would seek your input.Farred 02:04, 4 July 2010 (UTC) Thanks. Farred 15:14, 5 July 2010 (UTC)

Hi, Jarogers2001,

The real world seems to have taken much of your time away from Lunarpedia, but I hope you still hold the web site dear.
With my 1st of September 2008 edit to the Size of Infrastructure article I removed a {{cleanup}} template, but I realize that with my limited knowledge of wiki tech and good style conventions I may have been unjustified in removing it. I would be happy for any suggestions for improving articles. Do you think studying the Wikipedia manual of style would help? Thanks for your consideration. --Farred 17:15, 31 July 2010 (UTC)
Life tends to do that :-/
Studying the manual always helps. Other than tweaking my pet peeve about extremely long sentences (grammar nazism) the article looks pretty good. I recommend adding some pertinent illustrations. -- Jarogers2001 16:42, 2 August 2010 (UTC)
Thanks. --Farred 01:48, 3 August 2010 (UTC)
I have also noticed problems with run-on sentences in my writing. I tend to forget though. The reminder helps. Illustrations would help in a number of articles, but my lack of skill deters me. In one or two instances the need falls within my ability as an illustrator. It will take time. Where I am capable of some technique, still I have little experience. I can tackle the writing sooner. --Farred 02:53, 3 August 2010 (UTC)
Feel free to use pre-existing concept images, such as those available from nasa. - Jarogers2001 00:38, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
I hit the writing in [[Size of Infrastructure]] first and found more problems than I anticipated. I have ideas for illustrations, but I have already spent more time than I have on Lunarpedia. I must attend to real life. --Farred 06:11, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
Oh boy, I definitely understand that predicament. Jarogers2001 23:13, 18 August 2010 (UTC)

If you look at Marspedia you will see that after taking care of some real life issues I posted stuff there before here. I have not forgotten the graphics for Lunarpedia. I have a little electronic camera and some pictures of rockets. I am making progress towards something I can upload. And real life keeps making demands. --Farred 21:33, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

The graphics aren't a requirement or anything, just a suggestion to use illustrations to help make your point. Life comes first. Sounds like you need a few personal clones as badly as I do. We should mug Peter and make him tell us where he gets his.
I never thought that graphics were a requirement. Your suggestion about what could improve articles is what I sought. You reminded me of things that I have put off so long that I forgot about them. Don't get the wrong idea about my busy life. I think I put far less time per day into looking after real life concerns than most people. With the quality of graphics that I upload, I can only get better. --Farred 03:28, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

The spelling of aluminium

A new user, Jotagiraldez, is apparently very productive and talented. One thing he changed that I would disagree with is the spelling of aluminum being changed to aluminium, the British variant that my spell checker flags as an error. I give an argument for the old spelling on the Talk:Aluminium page if you care to look. Apparently I failed to save the edit the last time I tried to send you this message.--Farred 16:09, 10 November 2010 (UTC)

Marspedia is drowning in SPAM

Hi James, Marspedia is drowning in SPAM. I have seen Farred doing a very good job fighting against it, yet it seems to be futile as long as so much SPAM gets through. As far as I can see, the crucial thing is the user account creation. The Wiki software is obviously not the same as of Lunarpedia. Would it be possible to update/configure the Wiki software of Marspedia to the same level? Many Thanks. Rfc 21:23, 12 February 2014 (UTC)
