My Wikipedian involvement in this article

I was not the original Wikipedian author of this article, but I revised and reformatted it heavily and expanded it by about 80 to 90 percent.

I have uploaded here as is and will now start cleaning it up to be suitable for CZ. - Milton Beychok 16:49, 2 February 2008 (CST)

Thanks, Milton. Is this nearly as far as the article can and should be taken? Is it really close to approval? If not, it should be marked status=2, not status=1. --Larry Sanger 19:02, 2 February 2008 (CST)
Larry, first let me say that Stephen Ewen explained to me the intent of the Topic Informant Workgroup in a manner that I understood. I will comply with policy from now on.
As for this article, in my opinion, this article is about as far as I can take it and as far as it deserves to be taken. Regards, Milton Beychok 12:10, 3 February 2008 (CST)

Re consideration of approval Air Resources Laboratory

Milton, this article appears ready to begin the approval process.

My only reaction after reading it was that I could get a better feel for ARL's operation if you added a few examples of specific activities, perhaps drawing from their activity reports.

In other words, what good things has ARL done for us lately? Anthony.Sebastian 16:51, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

Hi, Tony: I would be happy to select certain of their recent activities, mention them briefly and provide references links to the source activity reports. However, I would like to wait until the Boiling point/Draft has been re-approved. It has been waiting now for 2 months ... which is more than enough time in which to decide whether or not to re-approve it. Especially now that we have two Approval Managers.
Once we finish with Boiling point/Draft, then I will proceed with this article as you have suggested. Thanks much. Milton Beychok 17:26, 24 February 2012 (UTC)
