Hi Nawi, welcome to Marspedia. You are doing an awesome good work here. With people like you I am optimistic about our successful colonization of the red planet. One hint about uploading pictures: The source of the picture must be indicated. For an example please see Image:WaterShieldGreenhouse.png or Image:Sevensisters strip.jpg. We do not want to take a risk of being held liable for copyright violation. Cheers! -- Rfc 19:48, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

Added the source to the other picture (which I made myself), but I think Image:Reprap-small.jpg should be deleted. I thought it was under "fair use", but yeah, it's probably better to delete it. I don't know how to do that though. Nawi 20:44, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

Only administrators can delete articles or pictures. What ordinary users (like you and I) can do is to nominate it for deletion on marspedia:deletion. -- Rfc 19:12, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
Problem solved. Image:Reprap-small.jpg :D - Jarogers2001 20:31, 5 July 2008 (UTC)
Just thought I would drop this little tidbit. Using hydrogen, ethylene can be derived from the CO2 in the Martian atmosphere. Ethylene can then be polymerized to produce polyethylene plastic. Info available in the documents section of Using polyethylene in a RepRap would require tuning the temperature on the printer head to the proper setting for that material. Finding the setting will require experimentation. Polylactic acid plastic (the current default for RepRap) can be manufactured from potatoes, if you can get potatoes to grow on Mars of course. - Jarogers2001 07:55, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

Damage Control

Many thanks for your efforts on reverting recent attacks (as well as your contributions). The sooner the damage is reverted is always the better. I have changed the protection levels on the main page and on the water article. The main downside is that if you wish to make a change to the main page you'll now need to bug one of the admins. -- Strangelv 16:56, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
