Happy New Year!

The Winter Walk at Anglesey Abbey - geograph.org.uk - 862583.jpg Best wishes for the New Year!
Wishing you and yours a joyous, healthful, and productive 2013!

Please accept a belated thank you for the well wishes upon my retirement as FAC delegate, and apologies for the false alarm of my first—and hopefully last—retirement; the well wishes extended me were most kind, but I decided to return, re-committed, when another blocked sock was revealed as one of the factors aggravating the FA pages this year.

Maintaining standards in featured content requires vigilance, dedication and knowledge of people like you, who are needed; reviews are always welcome at FAC, FAR and TFA requests. Somehow, somehow we never ever seem to do nothin' completely nice and easy, but here's hoping that 2013 will see a peaceful road ahead and a return to the quality and comaraderie that defines the FA process, with the help of many dedicated Wikipedians!

Belated Happy New Year with a Toast!

Here's a toast to the host
Of those who edit wiki near and far,
To a friend we send a message, "keep the data up to par".
We drink to those who wrote a lot of prose,
And then they whacked a vandal several dozen blows.
A toast to the host of those who boast, the Wikipedians!

Missile moves

I noticed you moved the Regulus II and Navajo pages to titles including the manufacturer's name. The naming standards for missiles are a bit nebulous at times but the general standard is that missiles do not include the manufacturer's name in the page title - see for instance the contents of Category:Cold War cruise missiles - so I've moved them back, as this is something that would need to be discussed (although given the brickbats of WP:COMMONNAMEism that have been thrown on occasion on the 'm-d-n' naming convention adopted for aircraft I wouldn't expect it to make much traction, for better or for worse). The exceptions are a few of the British missiles, that I honestly don't think should have the mfg. in the titles either, but that wasn't a battle worth fighting... - The Bushranger One ping only 22:30, 6 January 2013 (UTC)

David Cenciotti and HCobb

Bill Z, can you point me to the discussion re: David Cenciotti being a reliable source? Also, the claim that HCobb added to the article is not even in the David Cenciotti blog. This is a regular problem with him HCobb, as he HCobb often cites sources that don't suport his HCobb's edits. Appears to be a competence problem, esp when he's HCobb's trying to push a certain POV. Thanks. - BilCat (talk) 18:43, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

OK, thanks. - BilCat (talk) 19:28, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
The text that HCobb added is "Also the F-22's BVR advantages are currently blunted because of the delay in reprogramming the onboard computers to properly use the longer ranged 'D' version of the AMRAAM." Unless I'm wigging out completely (again!), that's still not supported in your new ref, and why I removed it the sentence twice. To avoid 3RR, I tagged it this time. - BilCat (talk) 04:51, 9 January 2013 (UTC)

Discussion on the best article title for Optical telecommunication

Hi Bzuk, there's currently an effort by another editor to move Optical telecommunication back to an earlier title, Optical communication. Approximately a month ago I asked for discussion on retitling it as a telecommunication article since it deals only with technology, not with the social science of communication, which is the way Wikipedia treats that subject. As there was no objection to renaming the article to 'Optical telecommunication' I proceeded with the move. Yesterday another editor decided that 'communication' is a better descriptor and tagged it for a move back to its old title, which I've opposed with reasons. If you'd like to join the discussion please feel free to do so. Best: HarryZilber (talk) 17:35, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:1941 and 1980 meeting.jpg)

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:1941 and 1980 meeting.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box.

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Wilwy Post 1935.jpg

A tag has been placed on File:Wilwy Post 1935.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image is an unused redundant copy (all pixels the same or scaled down) of an image in the same file format, which is on Wikipedia (not on Commons), and all inward links have been updated.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Accidentally editing template

Hi. You accidentally added the following to a template instead of to someone's talk page:

Sky Commando

This cheesy film turns out to be the last feature made by talented but fragile Frances Gifford. Although a B actioneer, laden with stock aviation combat footage, there is a hint of plot. "Touch Connors", later known as Mike Connors of Mannix TV fame and Dan Duryea in one of his few sympathetic roles, also have starring roles. FWiW Bzuk (talk) 15:39, 12 May 2013 (UTC)

Most likely what happened was that you clicked the edit tab for the section above, not realising that that section was a template that someone had forgotten to substitute (it was probably me as I used the template without substitution on three talk pages; apologies). This takes you to edit the template instead of the page it was on.

I've fixed the template, but I don't know which page you meant to leave the message on, or I would repost it for you (if it was one of the three I transcluded the template to, it's either user talk:the359, user talk:The Bushranger, or user talk:Djflem). CarrieVS (talk) 18:17, 12 May 2013 (UTC)

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:Dop in Mars Needs Women.jpg

Thank you for uploading File:Dop in Mars Needs Women.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.  — Crisco 1492 (talk) 05:19, 19 May 2013 (UTC)

F.E.2 page

Glad you got the references back to the standard librarian's bibcite form instead of that funny template thing - personally I have never changed this (or any other) bibliography between formats - trying to work whatever additions I make into whatever format is already there. I think the changes were actually made back in February this year by another editor, who possibly did it as part of a "crusade" type change of bibliography format "standardisation". Haven't really looked into this very far - don't really care very much - although I do record my own personal preference for keeping it simple and avoiding templates.

The "Biggles Learns to Fly" note (a much longer one) was inserted by another editor. I very nearly just wiped it on the spot - in spite of the fact that a childhood addiction to Biggles (viz my work on the Biggles article) is directly responsible for my lifelong enthusiasm for all things aviational (especially WWI) I don't think it is exactly notable, at least in the context of this article. Noticing that we have had several probably even less notable fictional appearances of F.E.2bs sitting there for years I left them all in - while pruning down the POV (laudatory adjectives and adverbs etc.) in each one. I also inserted a citation (for what it was worth) to "Biggles Learns to Fly". I notice in your recent cleanup you have left the citation to "Johns 1937" (or whatever it is) in place, while deleting the addition to the bibliography. Of course with this style of referencing we can't do that. Either the bibcite (non-notable as it is) has to go back in, or the reference in the text needs to be deleted. If Biggles (complete with his citation) is not notable enough to stay in, then I don't think you can justify any of the others either - in which case the whole section needs to go (totally unmourned by me, incidentally).

IF it stays - do we really need that "superheading" of "appearances in the media"??? since all the instances are in popular fiction isn't my more specific heading the only one required?

Sorry to go on at such length about so little - but I would rather we were in agreement on this one. I am easy, to be honest - whatever you think, within reason. --Soundofmusicals (talk) 14:02, 29 May 2013 (UTC)

Florence "Pancho" Barnes

Thanks for adding my research from the F3D Skyknight to the Pancho Barnes article. She deserves more recognition in Wikipedia and her feats and love of aviation and aviators is truly unique. Her link to the Skyknights service trials test pilots is not trivia IMHO though as few have made the case. Does it meet the guidelines for inclusion? Not sure as I have much to learn and limited time to get up to speed on all the wiki rules and structure. Also thanks for helping to improve the Skyknight article. Again, thanks for not just deleting the work, but adding it to Pancho's article and fixing the Skyknight. PheasantPete (Talk) 02:25, 4 AUG 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the help. Another question?

Would you please review the Douglas F3D Skyknight and see if it now qualifies as a B Class article and update it's class if you think it does. If not throw some suggestion at me for improvement. I am also working in my sand box on a VMCJ-1 article for submission. It still needs some work. Much of the info comes from other wiki articles and some from the sandbox of someone who has not done anything for years. My suspicion is he was a USMC Vietnam vet and may be unable to work on his projects at this time. He worked on a great deal of USMC stuff especially the Vietnam era. So is it ethical to include his sandbox VMCJ-1 information so VMCJ-1 can be eventually submitted. I believe it would be in good faith and doing something he likely intended to do eventually. Never have done this process before. I currently have extra time due to taking the summer off from studies and would like to get VCMJ-1 submitted before my extra time disappears. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Pheasantpete (talkcontribs) 03:57, 4 August 2013 (UTC)

Reverted edit

Was there any particular reason for reverting my edit to Avro Lancaster? You later added the edit summary "last edits AGF but do not advance the narrative, and actually detract from readability and accuracy". This is a purely factual description of the layout of a plane and not, for example, an explanation of how some historical event unfolded, I don't see what narrative I could have disrupted. I don't see that I made any change that decreased the accuracy of the article, as I changed nothing other than wording. Aside from my accidental duplication of the word "Elsan", which could easily have been fixed, I also don't see how simplifying sentence structure and removing duplicate information decreases readability. Dricherby (talk) 18:50, 4 August 2013 (UTC)

Looking at the edits that were made, there did not appear to be any substantive improvement, i.e. switching "among" for "amongst"? I took a look at both versions, before the recent edits and post-editing, and frankly, liked the earlier version better. 19:16, 4 August 2013 (UTC)
"No substantive improvement" is not a reason for reverting – by the same argument, reverting also made no substantive improvement (i.e., switching "amongst" for "among"?). Here are four substantive (though small) improvements I made: fixing the broken wikilink to "cantilever" (it pointed to a non-existent section of Cantilever); removing the ungrammatical hyphens in "rounds-per-gun"; removing the weasel-worded "had perhaps the most uncomfortable position"; altering the confusing wikilinking of "Elsan chemical toilet" ("Elsan" pointed to Portable toilet; I retargeted so that "chemical toilet" pointed to Chemical toilet). I'm going to reapply those (and only those) changes to the article. Dricherby (talk) 20:15, 4 August 2013 (UTC)
I also reinserted the word "gunner" where it was missing from a sentence. Dricherby (talk) 20:23, 4 August 2013 (UTC)
An article about a British subject will use the idioms and common use of British editors, that is why "amongst" although I do not like its use, is the operative word, rather than "among". As to other changes, this is the wickywacky world, and you are free to institute any changes you like, only realize that any editor can challenge or change those edits. FWiW Bzuk (talk) 21:03, 4 August 2013 (UTC)
As it happens, I'm British. British English doesn't require, or even prefer, "amongst": on the contrary, the BBC and the broadsheet newspapers use "among" well over 90% of the time. Indeed, the Guardian '​s style guide says, "among not amongst", and similarly for "amid" and "while". So please do use "among" among British company! :-) Dricherby (talk) 22:12, 4 August 2013 (UTC)

Sources, Thanks

Sources

The reason why Greg Goebel's "Air Vectors" website was challenged on the Douglas F3D Skynight article was due to it being a cumulative site that collects from other reference sources and is not considered as reliable as other more authoritative sources. The same thing came up with Joe Baugher's website which is again a great information source but is not considered as good as others and has often been challenged on Wikipedia. Both websites are regularly replaced by other second person or tertiary reference sources. FWiW Bzuk (talk) 15:48, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

  • Thanks still learning the in and outs of Wikipedia, as I finally have some time to do some contributing. That will end soon as my extra time will disappear as resume studies this fall. This is good writing practice to keep the pen sharp for fall. Unfortunately I will not be able to use wiki as a source because as you said above it is not considered as reliable as more authoritative sources. Professors will punish severely for using wiki.Pheasantpete (talk) 17:32, 5 August 2013 (UTC)
    • As a note, the challenges against Baugher wound up really getting nowhere (the WP:RSN discussion never came to a clear consensus but a majority of opinions were that it was reliable). Goebel on the other hand is more of a hobbyist site; it's been used to start some articles in the past, but as he's increasingly citing Wikipedia in his own work it's best to phase out VectorSite/Airvectors to avoid both the WP:SPS issue and the risk of "circular referencing". Still a very good site for PD sketches though! - The Bushranger One ping only 17:29, 7 August 2013 (UTC)

My famous "Synchronization gear" article!!

Thought you might be interested in this, as it has been brewing up for a long time and is now almost finished. I plan to be bold (to put it mildly) by pasting this lot straight over the existing "Interrupter gear" article, and then moving it to the new (more appropriate) title. I have used Australian spelling (the best and purest form of English, of course) with the notable exception of the word "synchronize" and its derivatives, which while not the preferred Australian spelling seems to be listed as "acceptable".

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Soundofmusicals/sandbox

The main things still missing and/or obviously imperfect:

1. References - these are VERY thin on the ground at the moment - I have a large pile of books and serial articles all ready to go through the article improving this aspect - but I am waiting on this until the first draft of the new article is more or less complete. A few things might get changed or even deleted to fit what the sources say as the references (there will be a lot of them!) go in - but doing it this way round will make the article less derivative, while permitting it to avoid any hint of undesirable OR.

2. Post 1919 history of synchronized guns - I very simply can't find sources!! Although there must be some info somewhere, after all they went on synchronizing guns to fire through the propeller well into the fifties!

Your comments would be very welcome.

Hi,
I'd copyedited this article in August and used the word 'machine' in the 'Postwar civil use' section, because I thought that too many 'aircraft' was bad English. To wit: " No aircraft were re-registered; most owners had voluntarily scrapped their aircraft well before this time."
'Aircraft' appears twice in about ten words. Not very good is it?

Avro Arrow resurrections

Re this bit of fancy, given your govenment's recent experiences with military projects, it would face monstrous cost overuns, and be 20 years late, at least. Perhaps the new Textron AirLand Scorpion would be something Canada could actually afford? :) - BilCat (talk) 18:32, 17 September 2013 (UTC)

Hi there!

Sorry about the bit of back and forth this morning, my apology - but it is actually true that there is no "standard" format for notes etc. (see Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Layout#Notes and references) and hundreds of articles use the format you removed, in which Notes etc. are not hierarchical, but denoted by bold headings. The problem with the layout you went to is that it clutters up the TOC unnecessarily, since our readers don't need to see more than "References" in the TOC.

I have done a bold merge!!

The old "CC gear" article promised to be very comprehensive, although what was completed of it was very "word-for-word" from the source! The main point is that it hadn't been worked on for a good while, and was very little use in its current form - so I have merged it to the relevant section of the new synchronization gear article. Having done it, do you think I am right? I have written diplomatically (I hope) to the editor who started the article concerned. --Soundofmusicals (talk) 11:23, 20 September 2013 (UTC)

Bibliography of Werner Voss

Hello,

You have wiped out a multi-hour effort of mine to attempt proper templating for this bibliography. If you have any objections to my trying to become a more knowledgeable editor, I wish you would bring them to me directly instead of randomly flushing my work.

Georgejdorner (talk) 02:28, 23 September 2013 (UTC)


During my A Class Review, I received some very strong hints that I had better change this citation system if I wanted Werner Voss to progress to Featured Article status. I was attempting to teach myself the wikicode to do so when you destroyed my work. If you had told me the cites were incorrect, I could have copied them back to my workspace, restored the old cites, and continued my struggle to learn wikiediting. As it is, you are just the latest editor to destroy my attempts at teaching myself wiki markup.

Georgejdorner (talk) 00:53, 24 September 2013 (UTC)

(talk page stalker)Replied in more detail on his talk page, but this would be a good example as to why teaching one's self wikimarkup in articlespace instead of a sandbox page is a Bad Idea. - The Bushranger One ping only 01:02, 24 September 2013 (UTC)

(Copied over from article talk page)

Bushranger,

Then you need to actually read my above post, where I state I was in workspace. The difficulty came during my transfer of the results into the article. You also ignored my offer to unilaterally restore the old version after saving my work.

The only issue I see here is your lack of good faith in a fellow editor, inattention to what is actually written, and a tendency to lecture.

Why did you delete large parts of the TOC in numerous articles?

Dear bazooka,

I've noticed that you've inserted a certain formatting command for an article's "table of contents" in dozens, if not hundreds of articles which prevents readers from being able to see or to use a full table of contents, and only allows readers to see or use the top level of headers in a table of contents. This is your formatting command, ((TOC limit|limit=2)) (where parens = curly que brackets). By essentially deleting the majority of the table of contents, this seems to me to have significantly reduced the usability of these many articles. I've been trying to go back and remove all of your strange formatting commands, but it is a very laborious process. Why did you do this, and do you plan on doing any more of it?

Thanks,

Curtiss AeCF license

I don't know if you remember, but we had a conversation about Curtiss's AeCF license a while back, based on my not being able to make any sense of what I knew. As is the way with research, I came across the following set of links when looking for something else...(this is a sandbox beginning for an entry on the page about early french licenses...sandbox because I wanted to get on with what I was actually trying to find a ref for)

"The dating of these early licenses is a bit of a mystery to me. I was trawling through the Flight archive and I found these references from 1909. First there is [1] from 16 Jan, saying that the AeCF had granted certificates to the Wright Brothers, Blériot, Delagrange, Henri Farman, Ferber, Santos-Dumont and Esnault Pelterie. Photographs are shown in [2]. Resolution is poor but I cannot see any numbers on the licenses, but a date of 1 Jan is legible. This is followed by [3]{23 Oct, Curtiss, Gobron, Compte de Lambert) [4] (26 Nov, Rougier and Maurice Farman)"

This does seem to explain what was going on. Presumably (& here I have a difficulty, because that presumption is presumably OR] the numbering was retrospective. As I say above, the first batch do not seem to have a number. Thoughts? TheLongTone (talk) 10:17, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

Three-view diagrams, any advice?

Boeing sent me a great bit of artwork for a three-view of the RC-1. I'd like to turn that into the "SVG" format they use around here. Any pointers? Or do you upload yours as bitmaps? Maury Markowitz (talk) 12:39, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

Ok cool, I'll do some google-fu. And yeah, I was looking for SVG. Maury Markowitz (talk) 15:01, 29 January 2014 (UTC)
So here's something… There's a command line program called "potrace" that turns bitmaps into traced images. By no means perfect, but it does work. For $2.99 you can get a shell program on the App Store that makes it very easy to use, look for "vector trace". The only problem is that it tends to thicken up lines, so if your original artwork is scanned the output looks like it was drawn with a heavy drafting pencil. But it works!

Just in case you're interested!

Just in case you're interested, this is a post I put on the user talk page of the gentleman who is working on McCudden's article (and with whom I have clashed in the past). Just for your interest. --Soundofmusicals (talk) 00:27, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

Congratulations on your work on this article! Most impressed. Hope you will take the following quibble in the spirit in which it is meant, in spite of earlier disagreements and my notorious lack of diplomacy.
On the whole, historical consensus still says that Richthofen's 15th victory was the F.E.2b of Quested and Dicksee. There IS a major time discrepancy here, and Guttman's case for it actually being McCudden's D.H.2 IS persuasive, but it remains essentially (Guttman's) speculation. The account of McCudden's close call of the 27 December 1916 in Cole (pp.73-74), the obvious source for Guttman's account, makes no suggestion that Richthofen might have been involved, so the link IS purely down to Guttman.
From Richthofen's point of view, dogfighting a nimble little D.H.2 and a lumbering great F.E.2b would have been very distinct experiences, so if it was McCudden rather than Quested it does seem strange he would have misidentified the aircraft concerned - he was familiar with, and distinguished between, the two types, even though he thought they were both "Vickers" products. British and German combat reports ARE sometimes very hard to tie in with each other - viz. the German account of Voss' death! Even if Quested and Dicksee can be ruled out there are very probably other possibilities.
All in all - while Guttman's notion that Richthofen very nearly shot down McCudden, especially at such an early stage of both aces' careers, is very interesting - and certainly deserves a mention - I don't think it is quite certain (or important) enough to rate a mention in the lead - nor does it warrant the degree of certainty implied in the text. Perhaps the odd "may have", and "might"?? We may even like to specifically mention our author here - "Guttman speculates that ..." ??

Hi. You recently reverted my edit re this film. The category is 'Films shot in Technicolor', 'shot' being the operative word. If you go to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Films_shot_in_Technicolor, the information block reads 'This category is for films shot in Technicolor using System 1 (1917–1922), System 2 (1922–1927), System 3 (1927–1933), or System 4 (1933–1955, also known as the three-strip process). This does not include films only developed by Technicolor or films shot with other processes but printed with dye-imbibition prints. (For more information, see the Technicolor article.) DO NOT USE FOR POST-1955 FILMS, AS PER ABOVE!' (not my capitals). Battle Hymn was filmed in 1957, two years after the last features were shot in this process. The credit exists on the film because the film was printed by Technicolor labs but it was 'shot' on Eastmancolor. A good reference is 'Technicolor Movies' by Richard W Haines.

Pictures on wikipedia

Dear Bzuk, how are You doing? I know You are busy, but I need to know how can I post an original picture on wikipedia, a pilot friend of mine has shot a picture of the tomb of the Italian ace Visintini and he is available to donate it to wikipedia to insert it in the article, can You help me please? --Gian piero milanetti (talk) 11:34, 24 February 2014 (UTC)

Dear Bzuk I HAd to give up! The uploading of an original picture is extremely complex and burocratic, at mid way I had to stop I could not understand anything, and I am not the first fool on stage... It is such a pity that wikipedia discourages in such a way the use of original pictures! How disappointing! --Gian piero milanetti (talk) 19:48, 24 February 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for contributing to Wikipedia. We always appreciate when users upload new images. However, it appears that one or more of the images you have recently uploaded or added to an article, specifically Battle of Britain (film), may fail our non-free image policy.

Wings (1927 film)

Thanks for your work on it! Currently gunning for GA if you're interested... Not an aviation expert, but I do have a long term goal to get every Oscar winner up to GA status! I was wondering if you have either the Farmer or 2006 Wellman books on the film. In google books they appeared to be the most resourceful aside from the book I could fully access on it. If not and you could get hold of them it would be great, I'm sure they'd be of great interest to you. I'll expand the lead shortly and nominate for GA but if you could glean further information from them I'd be grateful!♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:03, 14 March 2014 (UTC)

Hmmm, seems to be an issue of taste rather than substance; there are lots of good images to choose from, many of them colour, so hopefully, with more cooperation the look of the article can be improved, while addressing the issues of "sameness" and "too many static museum exhibits". Signaleer has a point, but he should have looked for alternatives, rather than just removing the "offending" images then complaining only after others disagreed.Min✪rhist✪rianMTalk 07:33, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the head's up. Looks much better! One question: what is/was "Associated Screen Studios"? Every reference I've ever seen states that it was produced by the National Film Board of Canada -- including the Academy of Arts and Sciences in their awards database.

Your welcome-to-wikipedia omitted something

I want to thank you for your initial "Welcome" at top of my Talk page. However, you didn't warn me about Wikipedia:WikiBullying and Wikipedia:Please do not bite the newcomers. What had been a gratifying Wikiexperience, has recently turned out to be a real disappointment because of another editor's years-old vendetta against a notorious sockpuppet. I have since decided:

If you don't like being bit, stay out of the kennel.

I'm a reasonable, easy-going fellow, but I don't trust growling dogs. I won't give up editing entirely, but I'm definitely going to be staying away from any subject or topic that is even remotely controversial. I don't want to get shot by mistake by a sniper with an itchy triggerfinger. This has shaken my confidence in the reliability of the subjective judgment of the Wikipedia community as a whole, and that hurts.
I appreciated the warmth of your initial welcome, but the Wiki-generated welcome tag didn't tell me about this kind of thing. A timely warning might have saved me some grief. However, I'm no stranger to combat stress, and I'm certain that I'll recover. I hope your own subjective experience has been better than mine. Thanks.

Categorization

Hi again, I've removed this edit to the aviation category. I see you're a veteran editor as well but perhaps you're not as familiar with categorization. Canadian aviation films are a sub-set (or as we call it, "sub-category") of aviation films in general, so it cannot be added as a "parent category." It's explained in more detail at WP:SUBCAT. I should also point out that aviation films is a large category, and so we have been WP:DIFFUSEing films to the documentary and national categories to remove clutter. You'll see at various times the general aviation category has been applied to other aviation documentaries, re-applied, removed again, etc. It's been a bit of an edit war, in the past, I'm afraid. thanks, Shawn in Montreal (talk) 10:45, 2 October 2014 (UTC)

Films

Not really, no. The rule for foreign-language films on Wikipedia (and it's the same rule that applies to all foreign languages, not just French films from Quebec) is that per WP:UE, we title the article with the title that the film was released under in English-speaking markets. There are certainly some cases (e.g. Y Tu Mamá También, Incendies, Amour) where the film just retained its original foreign-language title in anglo release, and some cases where the film never actually had an anglophone market release at all — so in those cases, we leave them at the original titles rather than making up our own translations. But if the title was anglicized when the film went into English-speaking markets (e.g. The Barbarian Invasions, Blue Is the Warmest Colour, The Way He Looks, etc.), then we use that anglicized title rather than the original one, since it's normally the title most likely to be recognized by the English-speaking readership of the English Wikipedia. (We do, however, create a redirect from the original language title, so that people who do know the film by that title instead will still find the article.) Hope that helps a bit. Bearcat (talk) 18:56, 3 November 2014 (UTC)

Question about Les Invasions barbares

I looked at Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Film, Wikipedia:Naming conventions (films) and Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Titles#Translations. It would seem that the usage of original language for the title would depend. It would look as if this film was released in English and French and was a sequel to a film known by its English title. So it could be OK to use the English title. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 19:10, 3 November 2014 (UTC)

Thank you! (Sorry for the slow response. I hope it's not too cold up there. As you might expect, it's delightful down here.)
To you and yours also; hope you had an enjoyable solstice celebration, and will have an even more enjoyable New Year celebration.

The Right Stuff revert

You reverted my edit putting in a sentence from the nytimes. You said, "Not its name and pilots did hang out with Pancho." I was never there, so I don't know. However

1. This page actually has a poster showing the name "Pancho's Fly Inn" (later changed to "The Happy Bottom Riding Club").

2. The nytimes article didn't say anything about pilots and Pancho, it said Air Force and NASA recruiters didn't go to that place.

So .. put the edit back? dfrankow (talk) 17:35, 27 December 2014 (UTC)

Hmm, even if you agreed, it is also copy and paste, so I guess it has to stay out. Never mind.

Lindbergh

Hi. Thanks for fixing my inline citation on the Charles Lindbergh article and making it comport with whatever format is standard for the page.

I just wanted to let you know, however, that only the first quotation cited (the one about "walking on water..." is attributed to A. Scott Berg. The other paragraph, and quotation, is attributable to the author of the book, Belfiore. (this one: "1927 marked the breakout year of commercial aviation in the United States [and] the beginning of what came to be called the Lindbergh boom. In April, the month before Lindbergh's flight, 97,000 pounds (44,000 kg) of mail flew on airplanes. In September, that figure was up 50 percent, to 146,000 pounds (66,000 kg). The number of applicants for pilots' licenses tripled that year,..."

I think it was my mistake in using the |postscript parm that indicated it incorrectly in the citation, when I "reused" that citation a second time.

I'm not quite sure how to clean it up, using the citation format that article uses. Cheers. N2e (talk) 22:34, 28 December 2014 (UTC)
