Good work

I've been following your work. Good stuff. In general, I would suggest you start articles by creating arguments, and then organizing the arguments in appropriate sub-debate sections, instead of creating the sections and then finding the arguments to fit. At least after 3 years of doing this, I find it an easier way to do it. -- Brooks Lindsay 11:39, 28 June 2009 (CDT)


Hello, I'm a little confused by what you're doing with this article. What is the debate? But, once you put content into the subdebate sections, they will spread out to fill the whole page. -- Brooks Lindsay 12:47, 1 July 2009 (CDT)

Featured you

Good argument

about the danger of a Mars mission -- Brooks Lindsay 08:20, 24 July 2009 (CDT)


Pretty good arguments on the Moon landing. There are some issues though. You'd bunched a number of distinct arguments into one. I've tried to separate them. Basically, in the "prerequisites" argument, you also included statistics on just the general difficulty of the great distance (that's a separate argument). Also, "bone loss is not the only risk Astronauts face" is probably not the best way to phrase an argument - as it only excludes the risks that have already been covered and doesn't define the risks you're actually trying to define in the argument: "Astronauts face risk of solar radiation in mission to Mars." But, an argument could summarize just the breadth of the risks: "A mission to Mars entails a daunting multiplicity of risks." - summarizing all the various risks into a collective risk. -- Brooks Lindsay 06:43, 26 July 2009 (CDT)

Sub-question orientation

I'm liking that you re-oriented the sub-question about Mars-mission feasibility, so that it aligns with the main question in the article (whether a Moon-mission is a better idea)? You're getting the hang of things for sure! :) -- Brooks Lindsay 02:52, 29 July 2009 (CDT)

Sub-debate sections

Great work on Debate: Mission to the Moon or Mars?. I changed the sub-debate section you created, so that there was a "science:" header and then I de-capitalized the words in the question? This is just a style issue. Nothing big, but try to follow the standard style we've adopted, unless you want to make an argument for the style you've been implementing (which you can always do - our policy is that our users shape the direction of the site as much as its founders). -- Brooks Lindsay 05:09, 29 July 2009 (CDT)

Debate: Mission to the Moon or Mars?

I've made a bunch of changes to Debate: Mission to the Moon or Mars? in the last four days or so. Just make sure to review them, and reflect on how the article is taking form and so-forth. I've been traveling Scotland in the last four days, so I've been a little out of the scene. But, I'll be working fully on Thursday and Friday on this article and then, other Category:Space articles. -- Brooks Lindsay 05:13, 29 July 2009 (CDT)


Thanks for the categorization efforts on Debate: Mission to the Moon or Mars? -- Brooks Lindsay 21:44, 2 August 2009 (CDT)
