Proposed deletion of Andrea Power PlanEdit

Hello, Brian Everlasting,

Welcome to Wikipedia! I edit here too, under the username Meatsgains and it's nice to meet you:-)

I wanted to let you know that I’ve proposed an article that you started, Andrea Power Plan, for deletion because it meets one of the relevant criterion.The particular issue can be located in the notice, that is now-visible at the top of the article.

If you wish to prevent the deletion:

  1. Edit the page
  2. Remove the text that looks like this: {{proposed deletion/dated...}}
  3. Click Publish Changes button.

But, please remember to explain why you think the article should be kept on the article's talk page and improve the page to address the raised issues. Otherwise, it may be deleted later by other means.

If you have any questions, leave a comment here and ping me.

Hoax vandalismEdit

Last warning. If you ever pull a blatant hoax like Andrea Power Plan again, I will do my very best to get you blocked not temporarily, but indefinitely. --Elmidae (talk · contribs) 14:12, 19 December 2018 (UTC)


I really don't get you. If you wish to avoid having the large majority of your edits undone, why don't you desist from indulging in really pointless, disruptive crap like removing all instances of "only" from an article - regardless of local context, sense and sensibility? This behaviour really is tottering along the line between incompetence and sheer vandalism. --Elmidae (talk · contribs) 13:18, 25 December 2018 (UTC)

I'm too stupid to understand why neutrino article was just perfect until I arrived to screw everything up. Brian Everlasting (talk) 16:36, 25 December 2018 (UTC)
Nobody said it was perfect but you made it significantly worse. Let's use your first edit as example: All particles interact via the weak interaction, that is not special about the neutrino. The unique feature of neutrinos (out of all known particles) is its lack of other interactions. It interacts via the weak interaction only. Removing that word makes a statement that is still technically correct but that statement is missing the interesting content. Similar for the other "only" you removed. They are there for a good reason. In at least one case your edit made it factually wrong: "Proof that there are only three kinds of neutrinos remains an elusive goal of particle physics." is correct (we don't know if there are more than three), but "Proof that there are three kinds of neutrinos remains an elusive goal of particle physics." is wrong (we know there are at least three). --mfb (talk) 23:19, 26 December 2018 (UTC)
Word "only" detracted meaning, confused readers, & redundant. Brian Everlasting (talk) 07:20, 26 February 2019 (UTC)
