Hi Ytrottier - I saw you moved Hybrid to Hybrid (biology) - fair enough in a way, but it should have been given more airing for discussion at WP:TOL before making this major move. The worst consequence is that there are nearly 2,000 animal and plant pages and several redirects which still link to [hybrid], and need disambiguation editing to change to a piped link [hybrid (biology)|hybrid]. I don't greatly feel like doing this tedious task. Do you? Personally, I'm strongly inclined to go back to how things were before, it would involve far less changing. - MPF (talk) 11:27, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

The need for more discussion was answered on User talk:MPF#Hybrid disambiguation and the content discussion was continued on Talk:Hybrid.
Thanks! I guess on balance the move was the right thing to do, but it would be nice if someone can work out a bot to do the disambig edits (I don't know how to do bots). - MPF (talk) 17:05, 2 January 2008 (UTC)


I just wanted to let you know that I think you are right about the ampco 18 C95400 thing. Based on the links you gave and a quick google search it seems pretty obvious to me that they are the same material. However, I didn't want to say that on the talk page because I feel that would have just made things worse. I hope that we all agree that just leaving it off the page is the best tack for now. --Wizard191 (talk) 03:23, 7 March 2008 (UTC)


Hi Yannick. Thanks for the invitation at Talk:Bernoulli's principle to participate in the debate at Talk:Siphon. I read the debate with interest and visited a couple of the external links. I have now added my thoughts to the debate. Dolphin51 (talk) 13:35, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

Disambiguous Zoning (disambiguation)

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Zoning (disambiguation), by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Zoning (disambiguation) is a disambiguation page that only points to a single article, or no articles at all.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Zoning (disambiguation), please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Feel free to contact the bot operator if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot, bearing in mind that this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion; it does not perform any nominations or deletions itself.

Wind power projection

Hey, thanks for catching the problems with my graph of world wind installed capacity. I have cut the length of the projection in half, and corrected the units problem (turns out that I was fooled by the data source, which used European conventions for the decimal point). To emphasize that there is no crystal ball, I added error bars. The projection is now a simple exponential fit to the existing data; the error bars show the (asymmetric) 95% confidence intervals around the exponential trend. —Aetheling (talk) 01:49, 12 July 2008 (UTC).
