This article has been ported from Wikipedia

I was a major contributor to the WP article. It required some clean-up before porting it here to CZ, but not very much. Milton Beychok 02:05, 6 September 2008 (CDT)

You have more experience than I with approval...

But aren't all the links supposed to be blue before approval? Howard C. Berkowitz 19:51, 16 September 2008 (CDT)

Howard, the short answer is "no. That is simply virtually impossible at this stage of CZ's growth ... and it will probably be virtually impossible for many, many months to come.
Do you really believe, for example, that approval of this article should wait until some authors write articles about Atlantic City, Philadelphia, green engineering, or sustainability? Milton Beychok 21:55, 16 September 2008 (CDT)
I'm not displeased to hear that -- I have been filling in such linked articles before putting a number of articles into "developed" status. Other than that, the article seems fine to me. I wish I could find some Military and Computers editors for mine!
Let me take another look when I'm more awake, but this one, at least, seems ready. Howard C. Berkowitz 23:10, 16 September 2008 (CDT)
Thanks, Howard. I will wait for you to wake up. :>) Milton Beychok 23:36, 16 September 2008 (CDT)
Incidentally, I'm from New Jersey. I suppose I'd rather write about Atlantic City than Newark, but neither strikes me as especially pressing. :-) Howard C. Berkowitz 23:12, 16 September 2008 (CDT)
For the record, my take on approval is more one of accuracy but not necessarily meaning complete. We should expect approved articles to continue to improve on the draft page. So i can definitely live with red links but it would be nice to have all three compulsary subpages with some content, even if not perfect. Chris Day 00:35, 17 September 2008 (CDT)
Chris, the Bibliography subpage has now been created and populated. The article now has the Related Links, the Bibliohgraphy and the External Links subpages created and populated. And now it is beddy-bye for me. Milton Beychok 02:42, 17 September 2008 (CDT)

As for how to get the approval process started you need to make edits similar to the ones below on the metadata page.

| article url =
| subpage url =
| cluster = yes
| now = ~~~~~
| ToA editor = Howard C. Berkowitz
| ToA editor2 =
| ToA editor3 =
| date = 9/21/08

The subpage url is only required if approving a specific subpage (usually used instead of the article url). If you want the whole cluster approved then check yes for cluster. The article url is the version you are approving. Note it is a specific version not the general link to which ever the latest version happens to be. This means that changes made after you have started the approval process must also be endorsed before the constable complete the final approval. Finally, the date you set is the one for when approval will be finalised if there are no objections. This is usually about 3-4 days but can be more, or extended depending on the circumstances. That is at the approving editors discretion. Chris Day 00:57, 17 September 2008 (CDT)

First, I'm approving it...

  • whimper* where are the Military and Computers editors when you need them?

A suggestion only, which has nothing to do with approval. I wonder if it might be worthwhile, given magenta links are OK, to stubs or articles either on the actual division names, or a variant that is more appropriate for an article title. Every one of them seems deserving of an article at some time -- not suggesting you do them. It might be too much magenta. Howard C. Berkowitz 13:58, 17 September 2008 (CDT)

Howard, thanks very much for your help. Milton Beychok 15:55, 17 September 2008 (CDT)

:Chris, Before Howard nominated the article for approval today, he relocated the TOC ... with which I have no problem. However that left the reference [2] hanging at the beginning of the third line in the second paragraph of the introduction section. I would like to change the word "about" in that paragraph to "approximately" because that would move the reference [2] so that it was not at the beginning of a line. Would that mean that the approved version has to be re-dated? If so, can Howard or I do that or can you or someone else do it? Please let me know. Milton Beychok 15:55, 17 September 2008 (CDT) Asked and answered. Milton Beychok 16:01, 17 September 2008 (CDT)

Approval of Version 1.0

Congratulations on the first approval for this article. I did add a few copy edits that were not included in the [ version ID}, so do let me know if the approving editor did not wish them to be included and I will remove them. D. Matt Innis 08:47, 22 September 2008 (CDT)
