Hoping to get the above referenced articles featured. Appreciate a group review! Revmachine21 10:54, 18 Jan 2005 (UTC)

  • Not sure I'm so happy about having a list in the lead section. The list in "Natural disasters" seems to start arbitrarily, perhaps we could convert this to prose with a very brief description of each of the disasters (in a similar way that you have described volcanoes). I'd suggest the same for the man-made disasters bit! Lastly, we need a proper references section. I think there are a few surviving disasters books that I've heard of: I think one was a handbook of disasters. - Ta bu shi da yu 00:30, 7 Feb 2005 (UTC)
The reason for only having a basic list was that by surfing to the natural disaster link, each event was briefly described. I considered prose description on this page a duplicate of information and a waste of hard disk space.
On a different note, my contributions were an in-between-jobs project for the benefit of all mankind. I just started with a new company and will not be able to hit these articles very hard. Will do what I can as able.
Revmachine, it's very good! I just figure we can make it better :) It's great to see a real expert contributing to our articles - I especially found the Business continuity planning very interesting, and this Disaster article is also very good. In regards to a waste of hard disk space: that is literally not a problem. We encourage material, and we ask contributors to never consider hard disk space! Wikipedia is not paper. Also, the reason I suggest prose is that an article should be fairly self contained in it's own right. It's not duplicating information, it's just summarising it! - Ta bu shi da yu 21:32, 7 Feb 2005 (UTC)
