Regarding moving the content to Improved cook stoves[edit]

I agree that the following sections should eventually be moved to Category:Improved cook stoves (maybe splitting off one or two into their own pages, such as Traditional three rock fire).

1 Traditional Three Rock Fire
2 Why Improved Fuel Stove are Good
3 Stove Programs
6 Literature review

I think that the remaining sections on design, testing and conclusions should be in a more specifically renamed project page. Such as Dan and Tyler rocket stove. Only Dan, Tyler or Lonny should do any of the content moving as this is a 305 project. Thank you, --Lonny 17:48, 20 April 2007 (PDT)

Very good.
A header template would be a good idea. Rather than a specific {{305}} template, it would be more useful to make a generic template of the form {{project page|Groupname}}, creating a notice that "this is a page by Groupname..." - perhaps with an additional option saying how open (or not) the group is to receiving edits by other people. --Chriswaterguy · talk 19:51, 20 April 2007 (PDT)
I added a {{305inprogress}} notice, and a general {{Projectinprogress}} notice. We could definitely add a groupname, or author name(s), to the general template. Both of these templates add the page to Category:Project pages in progress. --Lonny 01:55, 27 April 2007 (PDT)
I separated the Traditional three rock fire part to Three rock fire. How should we deal with Improved Cook Stove section? Should we integrate it with Improved Cook Stoves or should we move some of it to Rocket stoves? Thank you, --Lonny 19:19, 16 May 2007 (PDT)

Success of project[edit]

Dear project authors,

You state that this project was successful, but you do not analyze each criterion. For instance, the testing numbers are useful, but without a comparison they lose relevance. E.g. How much wood would be used in other systems to effect the same results?

Thank you, --Lonny 18:51, 16 May 2007 (PDT)

Project update[edit]

Testing will continue.

That is great news. Please continue to keep us updated. The new captions are a good addition. Thank you, --Lonny 13:14, 25 June 2007 (PDT)

Future Opportunities[edit]

I am seeking information on internship and research opportunities involving the Lorena stove, rocket stove or any improved stove design. Please contact me with information. My email is danielmoyer24@gmail.com Thank You.

308 Editing Comment[edit]

Hey guys, It was interesting to hear how the rocket stove is doing now. However, some of the update section could be cleaned up a bit. Technical writing should be concise. For example, "After a short while the water began to boil and was brought to a rapid boil within 7 minutes and 25 seconds," could be better written as, "The water came to a rapid boil within 7 minutes and 25 seconds." This version is less wordy and gets to the point faster. Just something to consider when writing technical documents. --MeghanHeintz 21:00, 17 October 2011 (PDT)
