Nice work Daniel

Hey Daniel. Thanks for putting the "Lack of active editors" on the wishlist. It belongs there. I will mention it on the forum. Dan Nessett 21:38, 11 September 2009 (UTC)

Mark up too difficult for me

Would like to include forum thread msg http://forum.citizendium.org/index.php/topic,2846.msg23985.html#msg23985 re References, Citations etc. Anthony.Sebastian 03:04, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

Not sure what this means. Where do you want to include it? On this talk page? If so, why not just copy/paste the text here? Dan Nessett 04:15, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

define: (feature on google)

when you type "define: proptosis" in to google you get a nice definition search.

Please make it so CZ definitions appear in this search.

Try out the define: feature on google ... works on mobile phone browsers too....

would bring hits to CZ!! Tom Kelly 22:04, 17 December 2009 (UTC)

The best way to achieve this is probably to display the definitions on the main article page, in the place currently occupied by the disclaimer. This is already listed, with priority 4. --Daniel Mietchen 22:31, 17 December 2009 (UTC)
This sounds like a most interesting idea, although I am unsure how to go about making Google recognise (and include) our definitions. --Thomas H. Larsen 22:42, 17 December 2009 (UTC)

Properties Headaches

Hi All,

I noticed a complaint here that "The current "Elem Infobox" template has no way for listing properties like IUPAC..." which is untrue. There actually is accommodation for this in the {{Elem Infobox}}, you just have to read the instructions. My opinion is that you can remove this complaint. It's erroneous.--David Yamakuchi 11:41, 8 February 2010 (UTC)

No, because the "wish" (not "complaint") also concerns the user interface (one location, or many scattered subpages). --Peter Schmitt 16:28, 8 February 2010 (UTC)
I made a similar point on the forum. David, no one here thinks what you have done here is a waste of time, or even a bad concept. This is more to do with usability and building on what you have started. Chris Day 17:49, 8 February 2010 (UTC)
One thing I was thinking in favor of a page for each constant is potential to add constant specific info, such as David has written at Water/Freezing point. But, in general, will many constants have such commentary and is such commentary available to the readers or is it always a hidden sub-note? I'm more just trying to documenting my thoughts here, rather than making any suggestions. Chris Day 17:55, 8 February 2010 (UTC)
