Apr to Jun 2013 Milhist content reviewing[edit]

Wiki-stripe1.svg Military history reviewers' award
By order of the Military history WikiProject coordinators, for your good work helping with the WikiProject's Peer, A-Class and Featured Article reviews for the period Apr-Jun 2013, I hereby award you this Military history WikiProject Reviewers' award. AustralianRupert (talk) 11:05, 1 August 2013 (UTC)

Keep track of upcoming reviews. Just copy and paste {{WPMILHIST Review alerts}} to your user space

Jethro Sumner[edit]

I apologize for my sloth in evaluating the above. Being new to the process, I was conscientously fumbling my way through, giving the article multiple readings and taking offline notes. A more proficient reviewer "played through", so to speak.

I did learn some interesting facts about the Revolution in the process. I thank you for the article that exposed me to them.

Georgejdorner (talk) 21:14, 4 August 2013 (UTC)

@Georgejdorner:: George, many thanks for your review. Right now I'm close to having all three supports, so if you have any other comments or critiques, please make them and I will try to address them. If there's nothing else you see that needs to be addressed, you might want to close out your review (by either supporting or saying "no further comments") so another reviewer doesn't think that your review is still ongoing. I'm glad to see some new people stepping in to review! Keep at it. Cdtew (talk) 13:14, 5 August 2013 (UTC)
Just so I keep above-board, if you disagree that it's of A-class quality, feel free to "Oppose". I'm not lobbying for your support, just trying to help you get used to the system. Cdtew (talk) 13:16, 5 August 2013 (UTC)
I am such a greenhorn at this that I did not realize that you needed more than one approval for an A-class assessment. I thought another editor had beaten me to the approval.

Georgejdorner (talk) 15:16, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

@Georgejdorner:: Not a problem! ACR generally takes supports from three reviewers who performed fairly comprehensive reviews. You can also specialize in reviewing certain things: Prose (style & spelling); Images (free use tags, captions, formatting); Citation (footnotes and bibliography, as well as spot-checking information in sources); Formatting (MOS compliance, etc.); or you can do like I do and just assess everything together. After you've completed your review, you can Support, Oppose, or state that you're weakly supporting or weakly opposing something due to one issue that hasn't been resolved. Hope this helps! Cdtew (talk) 15:23, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

Not about rating the article...just a general question. Can you tell me, or refer me to, any further information about conscription during the Revolution? I had always thought it a practice that only began during the Civil War.

My thanks in advance.

Georgejdorner (talk) 19:55, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

I'll have to dig through my sources, but there were several states with enforced militia service for white, "unscrupulous" (ie: non-Quakers), adult men. There wasn't a federal (or Congressional) draft, but there also wasn't effectively a Centralized recruitment effort. Recruitment of all Continental soldiers was done at the state level. I'll let you know if I find anything. Cdtew (talk) 02:13, 6 August 2013 (UTC)

As a native Marylander, I had a great deal of Revolutionary War history dinned into me. I am familiar with the scattered recruitment practices for American troops. It's just that I have never before heard of conscription during that era. The earliest use of conscription I know of is by the Confederacy in 1862.

Georgejdorner (talk) 15:33, 6 August 2013 (UTC)


Triple Crown[edit]

It is my pleasure to award Cdtew with this Imperial Triple Crown for all his work on DYKs, Good Articles and Featured content here on Wikipedia. Congratulations! —Bloom6132 (talk) 09:56, 9 August 2013 (UTC)

Howe FAC[edit]

Hi Cdtew. I've posted some more comments. ceranthor 00:22, 11 August 2013 (UTC)

Review of interest[edit]

Since you participated in the review of Tadeusz Kościuszko for GA and/or A-classes, you may be interested in Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Tadeusz Kościuszko/archive1 (at this point there are few substantial comments there, and the article is likely to be failed due to lack of community's interest). --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 14:35, 13 August 2013 (UTC)

Piotrus, I am happy to take a look. I was generally satisfied with the way things went in ACR, and had I realized it had been nominated, I would have added my support long ago. Cdtew (talk) 14:46, 13 August 2013 (UTC)

WP:FOUR RFC[edit]

There are two WP:RFCs at WP:FOUR. The first is to conflate issues so as to keep people from expressing meaningful opinions. The second, by me, is claimed to be less than neutral by proponents of the first. Please look at the second one, which I think is much better.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 06:19, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

Fun at Big Brother 15?[edit]

Having fun, yet? :) I've made an page protection request - mostly to deal with the child pornography comment problem (although it will indirectly help with some of the edit warring problem). Gotta love trying to keep some order on articles about popular and controversial reality shows! Singularity42 (talk) 03:39, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

WT:FOUR[edit]

I know you're probably tired of this (I'm getting fed up too), but as Tony seems to be implying that you are a racist (he uses the word four five times in opposing the proposed closure you made) you may want to comment at WT:FOUR. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 06:55, 30 August 2013 (UTC)

Article review[edit]

Your memory must be better than mine, I can't find any article of yours I've reviewed (or vice versa). Could you drop me a reminder? Sorry for partially being responsible for ruining your morning. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 13:46, 30 August 2013 (UTC)

@Crisco 1492: No, you didn't ruin my morning. I thought you had reviewed an article of mine, but I could be entirely mistaken. In fact, looking through my stuff I see I was mistaken. Sorry! I don't know why I thought you had. By the by, I'm a lawyer, so all of my mornings are like this, just usually not about me. Cdtew (talk) 13:50, 30 August 2013 (UTC)
  • No kidding. Alright, well I'm going to try and avoid the horse at ANI for now... hopefully when Tony's block expires he's ready to apologize. (BTW, watchlisted) — Crisco 1492 (talk) 13:59, 30 August 2013 (UTC)
  • Another mention at AN here. Not a particularly high-profile mention, but I figured I should follow protocol. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 23:32, 1 September 2013 (UTC)
  • @Crisco 1492: did you know that our mutual friend is keeping a page in his user space containing all of the records/listings from those who have removed their names and articles from WP:FOUR? Cdtew (talk) 03:24, 2 September 2013 (UTC)
  • No, I didn't, but it doesn't surprise me. He seems to think he'll walk in and "valiantly return the prodigal children to their rightful home" or some pseudo-heroic thing like that. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 07:04, 2 September 2013 (UTC)

Some stroopwafels for you![edit]

Gaufre biscuit.jpg Sorry to see the brouhaha--hard to think of a user who deserves it less than you. Thanks for all you continue to do here! -- Khazar2 (talk) 15:07, 30 August 2013 (UTC)
Many thanks, Khazar! I stepped into it of my own volition, so I expect this is what I deserve. Cdtew (talk) 18:01, 30 August 2013 (UTC)
I said much the same to myself after I tried to step in two weeks ago. Face-smile.svg -- Khazar2 (talk) 18:17, 30 August 2013 (UTC)

MilHist Coordinator Election 2013[edit]

Hi there, just letting you know I think you'd make a fine addition to the coord team if you're interested -- you'd just have to nominate here... Cheers, Ian Rose (talk) 05:07, 6 September 2013 (UTC)

@Ian Rose: Ian, thank for your vote of confidence. I would love to help out in any way I can, but would be worried that my IRL job (lawyer) may at times make it harder for me to contribute. Additionally, I respect all of the current Leads/Coordinators, so I don't want to step on anyone's toes by competing for anything. I may lay low a little while longer and throw my hat in the ring if the field looks thin. Cdtew (talk) 13:59, 6 September 2013 (UTC)
Fair enough, I know you'll continue to contribute in a positive way whenever you can, whether a coord or not. Cheers, Ian Rose (talk) 14:44, 6 September 2013 (UTC)
Ian, after seeing that one of the sitting coords chose not to run again, I figured I might as well sign up. I'm open to any questions you may have, and I appreciate you bringing this opportunity to my attention. Cdtew (talk) 17:25, 11 September 2013 (UTC)

In recognition of your contributions[edit]

WPMH ACR.PNG The Military history A-Class medal
On behalf of the coordinators of the Military History Wikiproject, I am pleased to present you with this A-class medal to recognise your fine work in developing the Francis Nash, Jethro Sumner, and James Hogun articles to A-class standard. Thank your for your contributions, and keep up the great work. Nick-D (talk) 10:45, 7 September 2013 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Autopatrolled[edit]

Wikipedia Autopatrol.svg

Hi Cdtew, I just wanted to let you know that I have added the autopatrolled right to your account, as you have created numerous, valid articles. This feature will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to reduce the workload on new page patrollers. For more information on the patroller right, see Wikipedia:Autopatrolled. Feel free to leave me a message if you have any questions. Happy editing! Vejvančický (talk / contribs) 12:31, 20 September 2013 (UTC)

@Vejvančický: Many thanks! Cdtew (talk) 12:32, 20 September 2013 (UTC)

Signpost[edit]

Hey Clark, I hope you're well! After reading your Milhist coordinator nomination statement (esp. "I want to be more involved in the community"), I was curious to know if you'd be interested in contributing to the Signpost's "Featured content" section, which summarizes the English Wikipedia's new featured material on a weekly basis. The two people currently involved are looking to do the "Discussion report" (Pine) and trying to balance their time between other Wikimedia roles (Hahc21). In addition to the summaries, you'll have editorial independence to seek out underappreciated topic areas and editors to tell their stories to a relatively wide readership on the English Wikipedia and around the Wikimedia movement. Feel free to take some time to think it over (if needed) and get back to me when you can! Thanks, Ed [talk] [majestic titan] 14:38, 22 September 2013 (UTC)

  • Having formerly done it (for almost a year) I'll let you know it took me perhaps 3 to 5 hours a week, depending on the amount of FC and if I interviewed someone or not. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 14:41, 22 September 2013 (UTC)
  • @The ed17: I would be happy to pitch in! Would I be going at this solo, or would there be assistance from those already doing the job? My two caveats are that I may need some lead-in time to get up to speed, and my sometimes volatile work schedule would make it helpful if there were others who could cover for me in the rare event I get overwhelmed. I appreciate you thinking of me for this, and look forward to helping. Cdtew (talk) 20:35, 23 September 2013 (UTC)
  • That's great! You will be working with Hahc21 (talk · contribs) when he's free, and hopefully at least one other editor if I can tempt them into doing it (suggestions welcome!). Pine (talk · contribs) can assist at times but would rather focus on the discussion report. I'm sure both will be happy to help with getting you acclimated to the regular format. :-) You're free to start on this week's edition, which will hopefully be published early Friday UTC, or next week. Ed [talk] [majestic titan] 04:58, 26 September 2013 (UTC)
  • Nice! Cdtew, I'd be more than glad to help you on all FC-related. I will be, of course, helping you every week with the report. Although I like to think that we will be helping each other :] — ΛΧΣ21 05:10, 26 September 2013 (UTC)
  • The ed17 Thanks for recruiting. Hahc21 are you still planning to write FLs for this week? Cdtew could do FAs. --Pine 05:54, 26 September 2013 (UTC)
  • @Pine:/@Hahc21: I am a little pressed for time, but I will give it a go. Let me know if I'm doing it right/wrong. Cdtew (talk) 12:53, 26 September 2013 (UTC)
  • @Pine:: I will have them today :] — ΛΧΣ21 14:51, 26 September 2013 (UTC)
  • @Hahc21: I've gotten 7/12 done by now; I'll attempt the rest tonight, but if I don't finish them then, I may need some help. I am traveling all day tomorrow to a wedding in another state. Also, since this is my first go-round, I'd appreciate any constructive/destructive criticism, and feel free to edit my contributions as much as needed. Cdtew (talk) 15:08, 26 September 2013 (UTC)
  • Don't worry. Do as much as you are able to, and I'll do the rest. I will be able to do so tonights after all the work I have awaiting for me is done. Cheers! — ΛΧΣ21 18:41, 26 September 2013 (UTC)
  • Good job with the report. You wrote longer descriptions than necessary but the extra detail is good. Hahc21 do you think you and Cdtew can do the job without me next week so I can get back to DR? --Pine 07:09, 27 September 2013 (UTC)
  • Just a quick poke on this; it'll be a short one this week. :-) We normally coordinate by email, if that works for you—feel free to send me one at the.ed17@gmail if you'd like! Ed [talk] [majestic titan] 06:58, 2 October 2013 (UTC)
  • @The ed17: Thanks for the poke; I've been in depositions all week, and I was traveling this past weekend; I will be able to get to this tonight, I believe. Cdtew (talk) 10:44, 2 October 2013 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────I've done some work, but since this is only my second try at this, I hope someone will look at it and tell me if I did anything boneheaded, or if the title I made is too stupid. Cdtew (talk) 03:26, 3 October 2013 (UTC)

Thanks Clark, that actually looks great! :-) Ed [talk] [majestic titan] 13:23, 3 October 2013 (UTC)

Moses Van Campen GA nomination[edit]

I've fixed many of the issues you've raised there (I've even managed to track down the names of the tribes in a few cases). I can also attempt to incorporate some material from more recent sources into the article, if you want. --Jakob (Scream about the things I've broken) 23:29, 26 September 2013 (UTC)

Congratulations[edit]

G'day, in recognition of your successful election as a co-ordinator of the Military History project for the next year, please accept these co-ord stars. Welcome. I look forward to working with you over the next year. If you have any questions about co-ord tasks, please let me know. I'm more than happy to help. Regards, AustralianRupert (talk) 06:23, 29 September 2013 (UTC)

Coordinator of the Military history Project, September 2013 – September 2014

Moses Van Campen GA nomination[edit]

Does it still need work or are you willing to pass it now? Thanks, --Jakob (Scream about the things I've broken) 16:06, 2 October 2013 (UTC)

@King jakob c 2: Jakob, see my notes on the GA page. I think at this point I think it'll be worth it to fail the GA for now, and to give you some thoughts to improve. I think biggest issue is structure and the style; one thing that's not an issue is your drive and passion for the subject. Keep those things, and you'll get this improved well enough. Please let me know if I can help out in any way. Cdtew (talk) 01:33, 3 October 2013 (UTC)

Featured Content[edit]

Excellent job on the Signpost column. - Dank (push to talk) 01:13, 6 October 2013 (UTC)

@Dank:Dan, thanks as usual for your useful copyedits. And Crisco, thanks for the support! Cdtew (talk) 02:40, 6 October 2013 (UTC)

Agreed, nice work! Ed [talk] [majestic titan] 14:22, 6 October 2013 (UTC)
You are off to a great start. This week your workload will be more normal. You can ask Hahc21 for anything you need help with. He usually does FLs. Thanks for contributing. --Pine 06:46, 7 October 2013 (UTC)
Indeed. Very good job! :] — ΛΧΣ21 14:00, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

I dare you to include all 20 Puck of Pook's Hill images in the article for this week. >=) Adam Cuerden (talk) 21:40, 17 October 2013 (UTC)

Fractional currency FLC[edit]

Hi Cdtew- I am trying to find reviewers for a Featured List nomination through the Numismatic portal membership list. If you have the time to look at the proposed list, feedback or comments (either positive, negative, or both) would be appreciated. I don't know if Fractional currency is too far afield from your interests. Thanks-Godot13 (talk) 04:58, 22 October 2013 (UTC)

FA congratulations[edit]

Just a quick note to congratulate you on the promotion of Francis Nash to FA status recently. If you would like to see this (or any other FA you may have helped to write) appear as "Today's featured article" soon, please nominate it at the requests page; if you'd like to see an FA on a particular date in the next year or so, please add it to the "pending" list. In the absence of a request, the article may end up being picked at any time (although with 1,327 articles in Category:Featured articles that have not appeared on the main page at present, there's no telling how long – or short! – the wait might be). If you'd got any TFA-related questions or problems, please let me know. Thanks, BencherliteTalk 10:12, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

Congrats from me, too--I just saw this good news in the Signpost. Always glad to see you continuing your terrific work! -- Khazar2 (talk) 21:36, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

Rfa?[edit]

Hi there. I've seen your work around the project and some of it is spectacular. Should you wish to stand for an RfA, do tell. It'll be a pleasure to nominate you. Regards. Wifione Message 17:14, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

@Wifione: Wifi, thank you for the thought. Given that I have a limited amount of time I can usually contribute to Wikipedia, I would generally prefer to be mop-less, and to concentrate on content creation and my work as a coord with MILHIST. I sincerely appreciate your kind words, and will let you know if I change my mind. Cdtew (talk) 13:03, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the reply. Yes, do tell me if you change your mind. Kind regards. Wifione Message 15:02, 28 October 2013 (UTC)

FC[edit]

Thanks for your work on the Signpost's FC page! Tony (talk) 13:54, 28 October 2013 (UTC)

Just a poke for this week's FC, I am hoping to publish soon. :-) Ed [talk] [majestic titan] 20:22, 8 November 2013 (UTC)
@The ed17: Ed, I apologize for this week. I actually just finished writing, and when I pressed "save page", it showed me the edit conflict with your writing. I had actually gotten the whole thing written as well; my failing was in not responding to you here to let you know I was working on it. I'll be more attentive to my duties this week. Cdtew (talk) 04:28, 9 November 2013 (UTC)
Don't apologize, things happen. :-) I'm actually sorry for not telling you I was working on it—you certainly wouldn't have thought I would do it. Please feel free to add/subtract/edit, especially if you have additional information on the big FT. Ed [talk] [majestic titan] 04:31, 9 November 2013 (UTC)
@The ed17: and @Hahc21: I'm going to be on the road all day tomorrow and much of the day Thursday; I will try to attack the FP's if and when I get a chance, but I just wanted to give you a heads up that I may be delayed on those. Cdtew (talk) 05:38, 13 November 2013 (UTC)
Maybe I could give a hand. I just came back home (I was travelling) and will try to help over at FC :) — ΛΧΣ21 19:26, 13 November 2013 (UTC)

This week's Featured content report[edit]

The Signpost has been covering this year's WikiCup competition in the FCR so I added the information about this year's finish to the report. Thanks for your work on the Signpost! --Pine 06:52, 1 November 2013 (UTC)

Petén[edit]

At Wikipedia:WikiProject Military history/Assessment/Spanish conquest of Petén, the closer probably just forgot to check for new comments before he ran his closing script. Simon will probably respond to your comments anyway, and when he does, even though that page is archived, if you're satisfied, you can change to support "for the record", or ask for it to be re-opened if there are problems. - Dank (push to talk) 12:58, 3 November 2013 (UTC)

  • I don't think there was much to be added; I probably shouldn't have even reviewed given there were already three supports. Thanks, though! Cdtew (talk) 13:02, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
    • Addition reviews are always welcome (by the reviewers, and usually by the writers), if you see something you'd like to comment on. Thanks Clark. - Dank (push to talk) 13:05, 3 November 2013 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Hi Cdtew, the Spanish conquest of Petén review was closed before I could properly thank you for your review. I'll work on your last comments before taking it to FAC - many thanks and all the best, Simon Burchell (talk) 13:15, 3 November 2013 (UTC)

Bugle book review[edit]

Hi mate, per this, just checking how you might be going -- aiming to get this month's issue out around the 15th and love to have a review from you if you can manage it... ;-) Cheers, Ian Rose (talk) 10:43, 10 November 2013 (UTC)

@Cdtew: Hi again, other priorities have delayed me despatching the Bugle today as planned, so if you're able to complete your review during the weekend we could fit it in... :-) Cheers, Ian Rose (talk) 01:09, 15 November 2013 (UTC)
I didn't realise when I posted this that Hawkeye had recently added a book review to this month's draft issue, so no pressure now -- be great to have your ready in December though! Cheers, Ian Rose (talk) 02:51, 16 November 2013 (UTC)

Robert Howe (Continental Army officer) at TFA?[edit]

Just to let you know that there's space at WP:TFAR at the moment for you to nominate Robert Howe (Continental Army officer) for 29th December, if that's still your plan. Regards, BencherliteTalk 09:54, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

Werner Voss Peer Review[edit]

Hello,

I am soliciting feedback for the above article. Of especial interest to me would be feedback on Werner Voss#Last stand. If you should review that section alone, I would be grateful. If you review the entire article, I would be even more grateful.

Disambiguation link notification for November 22[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Jethro Sumner, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Thomas Blount (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

A beer for you![edit]

Export hell seidel steiner.png Many thanks for taking the time to review the Spanish conquest of Petén at Milhist ACR - the article was recently promoted to FA, in no small part due to the prep it got at MilHist. Best regards, Simon Burchell (talk) 11:54, 22 November 2013 (UTC)

Do you want help with this week's Featured Content?[edit]

I know you're going to be spending less time editing, and I've been asked to help with this week's FC, but I see you've started already. I can do the summaries for FAs and FLs, if you like. - Dank (push to talk) 19:23, 22 November 2013 (UTC)

Ah I see your "away" message on Ed's talk page now. Changed my mind, I'm only comfortable with FAs. Best of luck in all your endeavors, and I hope you know you're welcome back in any capacity any time. - Dank (push to talk) 02:56, 23 November 2013 (UTC)
@Dank: Hey Dan, thanks for the extra hand; I've gotten some extra time tonight, so I'll do the FP's. Hahc usually gets to the FL's about Thurs-Friday, so I'm presuming he'll get to that soon. Cdtew (talk) 03:04, 23 November 2013 (UTC)
Sure thing. - Dank (push to talk) 03:08, 23 November 2013 (UTC)

Meetup?[edit]

Would you be interested in a small, focused meetup? I'm interested in putting some energy into closing a series of RfCs on issues that have been annoying both the community and the WMF for some time now, and I'd appreciate some feedback. Also, it's just sad that I haven't made more of an effort to get some face time with NC Wikipedians. - Dank (push to talk) 18:16, 29 November 2013 (UTC)

Flow testing[edit]

Hey Cdtew :). As mentioned on the Milhist coordinators talkpage, we've opened Flow up for community testing. I'd be really grateful if you could hammer on the system (if you haven't already!), let me know any bugs you find, and leave a note at the 'first release' page explaining what you, as a member of Wikiproject Military History, would need to see to be okay with it being deployed on that wikiproject's talkpage.

Thanks! Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 20:10, 3 December 2013 (UTC)

Main Page appearance: Robert Howe (Continental Army officer)[edit]

This is a note to let the main editors of Robert Howe (Continental Army officer) know that the article will be appearing as today's featured article on December 29, 2013. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page. If you prefer that the article appear as TFA on a different date, or not at all, please ask Bencherlite (talk · contribs). You can view the TFA blurb at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/December 29, 2013. If it needs tweaking, or if it needs rewording to match improvements to the article between now and its main page appearance, please edit it, following the instructions at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/requests/instructions. The blurb as it stands now is below:

Major General Robert Howe

Robert Howe (1732–86) was a Continental Army general from North Carolina during the American Revolutionary War. He was one of only five general officers, and the only major general, in the Continental Army from that state. At the outset of the war, he was appointed a brigadier general in the Continental Army, and eventually became commander of the Southern Department. His early military career was contentious and consumed by conflict with political and military leaders in Georgia and South Carolina. These confrontations, including a 1778 duel with Christopher Gadsden, and Howe's reputation as a womanizer eventually led to his removal from command over the Southern Department. Prior to the formal turnover of his command, Howe commanded the Continental Army and Patriot militia forces in defeat in the First Battle of Savannah. He later sat as a senior officer on the court-martial board that sentenced British officer John André, a co-conspirator of Benedict Arnold, to death. Howe himself was accused of attempting to defect to the British, but the accusations were cast aside at the time as a British stratagem. He died in December 1786 after being elected to the North Carolina House of Commons. (Full article...)
