Glad to see that you are back!!

Hi, Henry: Glad to see you back with us ... and I hope that you stay.

About Boiling point/Draft

Hi, Henry:

I have responded to your comment on my Talk page about Boiling point/Draft. I think that it may be best if you copied your comment and my response ... and pasted it into the talk page of Boiling point/Draft in the section devoted to comments about the re-approval. That is the more appropriate place for our interchange of comments. Regards, Milton Beychok 17:40, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

About your boiling point diagram

Henry, if you hurry and contact Anthony.Sebastian immediately, you may be able to get your diagram included before the re-approval is completed. But do so as quickly as you can ... and tell him that I am in agreement as documented right here. Milton Beychok 03:30, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

I just inserted the diagram and left a message on User talk:Anthony.Sebastian and on Talk:Boiling point/Draft that Milton Beychok approves. Henry A. Padleckas 09:16, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

About Missile vehicle

Hi, Henry: After a quick scan of the subject article, I did the following:

  • I created the credit line for the photo which the original uploader failed to do.
  • I removed the "Technical Team" category from the Metadata form because we have no such workgroup for articles.
  • I down-graded the status from 1 (Developed and ready for Approval) to 2 (Developing). Before upgrading to a status of 1, I suggest that:
    • The article be reformatted by creating some relevant sections, for example, a fairly brief introductory section and a "History" section with a section header. Perhaps you could break it down into even more sections.
    • Create and populate the "Related articles" subpage (equivalent to WP's "See also" section)
    • Create and populate the "External links" subpage (hyperlinks to other website information ... but not WP.)
    • Create and, if you can, populate the "Bibliography" subpage (more books and journal articles that are relevant).
  • Let it sit for a while (perhaps at least a 2-3 weeks) to see if anyone else edits/add/deletes, revises the article.

Best regards, Milton Beychok 21:13, 9 March 2012 (UTC)

Thank you, Milt. Henry A. Padleckas 08:44, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

About uploading photos or other images

Henry, see what I said about uploading images (from Wikimedia Commons and/or Flickr) at Talk:Missile vehicle. I just uploaded the photo of the German Patriot launcher for you. You can install it in your article by using this coding: {{Image|GermanPatriotMissile.jpg|right|350px|Add image caption here.}} and you are free to change the width of 350px and to add any caption you desire. Milton Beychok 00:56, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

Thank you, Milt. I substituted the pic you just uploaded into CZ in place of the previous pic in Missile vehicle. Henry A. Padleckas 10:19, 10 March 2012 (UTC)
I finally found a photo of Russia's TOPOL-M truck-mounted ICBM for which I could identify the creator. I uploaded it into CZ and then placed it in your article Missile truck. Hope you like it. If not, just remove it. Milton Beychok 20:50, 11 March 2012 (UTC)
Milt, thank you for reviewing the Missile vehicle article, fixing spelling mistakes in there, and finding and uploading a CZ-suitable photo of the Topol-M vehicle. I fixed corresponding spelling mistakes in the WP article. I plan to keep the Topol-M pic in the CZ Missile vehicle article. Henry A. Padleckas 04:08, 13 March 2012 (UTC)

Another TOPOL-M photo

I had contacted 3 people about their Flickr photos of the TOPOL-M ... and one of them has now replied and given permission to use his photo. I have now uploaded it and it is available at File:DannerGyde-Topol-M.jpg. The banners and wires in the upper right-hand corner could easily be removed, if you wish. Just let me know. I leave it up to you whether or not you wish to use this photo. Milton Beychok 16:12, 17 March 2012 (UTC)

Thank you, Milt, for uploading this photo. I have substituted this photo for the one already present in the Missile vehicle article, although I have not removed the banners and wires. I believe that could be done at a later, convenient time. I consider this photo to be a slight improvement over the last photo you uploaded because in the last photo, the back end of the truck was cut off in the pic. I notice this newly uploaded photo shows only 7 wheels on the side, when I mentioned in the article that it was an 8-axle truck, which is consistent with the en:WP article photo. Oh well ! Henry A.

re Steam generator--to Henry A. Padleckas

Hi, Henry. Approval Manager pest again:

On November 4th, you wrote in the comments on the article's Talk page:

I copied that first paragraph mentioned above to the History section of the Nuclear power plant article and otherwise expanded that History section. I will take out that paragraph from Steam generator when I rewrite that section. I've made changes to the above-mentioned picture, but have not re-uploaded it yet. Work continues. Henry A. Padleckas 06:27, 4 November 2012 (UTC)

Do you have time to do those items you mentioned? So we can move the Approval Process to fruition.

If you complete your edits, let me know then if the article's ready for final Approval.

Thank you for all your efforts to help improve the article.

BTW: Do you have an colleagues you might interest in contributing to Citizendium? Anthony.Sebastian 23:35, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
