Talk:Emergency jump coordinates

Wikipedia Link Tip

I was going to change the wikipedia Greek alphabet link to look like this one, but I noticed you're actually referencing the Colonial wireless alphabet (which we have an article on). Not that "internal" links can have spaces in them (when you use the double brackets). Only "external" (single bracket) links are picky about using underscores. This article still may not survive, but asking for Spencerian's assistance with it was a great way to start, and I definitely learned something by reading it. --Steelviper 15:44, 31 May 2006 (CDT)

Comments on New Article

I think Rafale did very well with his first article. I wanted to see what he had in mind before suggesting that his information might best be incorporated into FTL. The information is sourced right, and it defines something we haven't discussed here, with extensions into probable use in past and "present." The article also plays well with other articles that are essentially orphaned (and thus, candidates for deletion themselves) without it: Colonial wireless alphabet and Actual. The deletion tag here wasn't appropriate (again, we choose to incorporate rather than delete; perhaps use the "Merge" tag next time, Merv) so it's gone.

Rafale, do visit the Standards and Conventions article as well as other articles on wiki formatting and policy for this place; it sometimes does things different from, say, Wikipedia. Otherwise, nice work, and thanks for the contribution. --Spencerian 16:49, 31 May 2006 (CDT)

I love the sourcing. It might stand to be cross-linked better, or have direct quotes, but the instinct about what needs it is right on. I also liked the inclusion of the number of times the whole emergency jump thing has been used. Makes for easier verification. This might could stand to be merged, but I don't know that it needs to be. I'll let others weigh in on that before I go adding links to episodes or whatever. --Day (Talk - Admin) 00:19, 1 June 2006 (CDT)
Yes, this is certainly a pleasant addition. --Peter Farago 02:13, 1 June 2006 (CDT)

Thanks for the great feedback!

Hi all, thank you very much for your feedback! I´m happy to have contributed something useful. Please excuse the errors in layout that i made, i´m not completely hip yet to the layouting practices you guys have set up. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Rafale (talk • contribs).


Hey (I've got no problem with the content, good job Rafale); you guys think this should be a merge-job to FTL, or do you think it's too long? I can't realy decide, upon further review of "FTL"...--The Merovingian (C - E) 13:10, 2 June 2006 (CDT)

I think it's long enough to stand on its own. I think, though, we should drop a "See Also" into FTL (rather than just link in the prose) so that people see it more. One reason for this, is we might consider including this into the Language series, too, as it is a kind of jargon someone might want to look up (like the Red Line, DRADIS or whatever). --Day (Talk - Admin) 23:08, 2 June 2006 (CDT)
Concur with Day. We have quite a few pages that get a bit long in the tooth. I'd prefer articles that I have to page down no more than twice. --Spencerian 13:48, 3 June 2006 (CDT)
This was over a month ago the merge was suggested and like Day and Spenc i agree it should be kept on its own so I have now removed the merge suggestion. If people want to continue to discuss merging or not then please feel free to re-add the tag and continue the discussion --Mercifull (Talk/Contribs) 04:20, 13 July 2006 (CDT)
