Hi The Bushranger, not sure if you remember this discussion some years ago, which you contributed to. I've been slowly consolidating 'Military facilities' and 'Military bases' across a whole range of the subcategories. Now there is an opposed move of about three of the subcategories at Wikipedia:Categories_for_discussion#Opposed_nominations. Would you kindly consider giving your views there? Regards Buckshot06 (talk) 10:14, 25 April 2015 (UTC)

I'll see about making some time to take a look. Thanks. - The Bushranger One ping only 10:13, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

WikiCup 2015 May newsletter[edit]

C/2014 Q2 (Lovejoy) is a long-period comet discovered on 17 August 2014 by Terry Lovejoy; and is one of several Featured Pictures worked up by India The Herald (submissions) during the second round.

The second round one has all wrapped up, and round three has now begun! Congratulations to the 34 contestants who have made it through, but well done and thank you to all contestants who took part in our second round. Leading the way overall was Belarus Cas Liber (submissions) in Group B with a total of 777 points for a variety of contributions including Good Articles on Corona Borealis and Microscopium - both of which received the maximum bonus.

Special credit must be given to a number of high importance articles improved during the second round.

The points varied across groups, with the lowest score required to gain automatic qualification was 68 in Group A - meanwhile the second place score in Group H was 404, which would have been high enough to win all but one of the other Groups! As well as the top two of each group automatically going through to the third round, a minimum score of 55 was required for a wildcard competitor to go through. We had a three-way tie at 55 points and all three have qualified for the next round, in the spirit of fairness. The third round ends on June 28, with the top two in each group progressing automatically while the remaining 16 highest scorers across all four groups go through as wildcards. Good luck to all competitors for the third round! Figureskatingfan (talk · contribs · email), Miyagawa (talk · contribs · email) and Sturmvogel 66 (talk · contribs · email) 16:48, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

You restored the revision history of Sufyian Barhoumi in 2013. I appreciate that, thanks.

Your edit summary says: "Reverted to revision 501791820 by The Bushranger: actually, just put it back to the redirect - this was deleted at AfD, please use WP:DRV if you think it should be restored."

I added some new material. I've taken updated drafts to DRV, and have been mildly admonished for doing so, as the updates rendered those versions ineligible for speedy deletion of recreation of previously deleted material. So, I think I won't take this to DRV.

On the other hand, anyone who thought the updated version had the same problems as the original version could initiate an AFD on the updated version.

It was my position in 2012, and today, that none of the few dozen captives who actually faced charges before a Guantanamo Military Commission should be regarded as instances of WP:BLP1E. Since charges were so rare, I think it is a second event, and a well documented one.

If you took a look at the draft, I'd be grateful if you let me know whether you thought the updated version should also be deleted, and, if so, you could offer an explanation as to why.

Thanks Geo Swan (talk) 17:30, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

  • You userified Asim Thahit Abdullah al Khalaqi for me. I've updated it, and restored it to article space, after there was coverage of a controversy concerning his medical care. Geo Swan (talk) 23:09, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
