DYK[edit]

Hi I've just assessed your DYK on the 2009 Serbian Air Force MiG-29 crash. By my reckoning it is about 200 characters short of the threshold for passing articles. If you can pad it ever so slightly and get back to me I can pass it.  Francium12  22:05, 2 September 2009 (UTC)

Requested move of World War II evacuation and expulsion articles[edit]

I recently began a centralized discussion for the renaming of population transfer or forced migrations relating to WWII. You have shown interest in the topic in the past so I wanted to bring the discussion at Talk:World_War_II_evacuation_and_expulsion#Requested_move to your attention. --Labattblueboy (talk) 13:28, 11 September 2009 (UTC)

Better location?[edit]

Moved from Wikipedia:WikiProject_Military_history/Coordinators/September_2009. My fault for posting in the wrong place, sorry Eurocopter. EyeSerenetalk 09:03, 12 September 2009 (UTC)

      • I just scanned the above, and at first glance thought it said "I can easily continue to out-perform any coordinator..." That may actually have been more accurate. EyeSerenetalk 18:55, 11 September 2009 (UTC) I know this is in the wrong place; please remove before voting goes live!
        • Eurocopter, would you please take more care in future with creating articles? Fighter Wing 71, which you've just created, duplicates Jagdgeschwader 71 and is the only English named Luftwaffe wing. Would you please mind fixing this situation?

German Tank Infobox[edit]

Dear Eurocopter,

I recently found that the article on the leopard 2 Tank only had an infobox declaring that it was a Polish Armoured Vehicle, which seems rather silly to me, so I added the Post Cold-War Armoured Vehicle infobox so I was wondering if there was a West German Armoured Vehicle InfoBox, so I could add that is well.

Russian Air Force[edit]

Now that it is semi-protected, do you have a suggestion on a single, reputable, widely accessible, source we could use to update all the aircraft numbers, so they're consistent? Cheers Buckshot06(prof) 20:57, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

On your suggestion, I have no access to Air Forces Intelligence, and I'm not convinced of its value, to be honest. How about good old honest MilBal figures updated once a year? Buckshot06(prof) 10:01, 20 September 2009 (UTC)

Military history coordinator elections: voting has started![edit]

Voting in the Military history WikiProject coordinator election has now started. The aim is to elect the coordinators to serve for the next six months from a pool of sixteen candidates. Please vote here by 23:59 (UTC) on 26 September!
For the coordinators,  Roger Davies talk 22:09, 16 September 2009 (UTC)

Thanks and a request![edit]

Thanks for your service as coordinator on WPr Military History for the last six months. Great job, the Wikiproject has matured some more. Lots more needs to be done though.

Would you consider giving a para here on what you planned to do, what you could achieve, what gave you happiness, what irritated you and your suggestions for the road ahead to the new team?

All the best for the new elections!

AshLin (talk) 04:17, 23 September 2009 (UTC)

Well, besides continuing the activities undergone in the past four terms, for the next term I'm planning to organize and administrate the Henry Allingham contest (if this becomes a successful contest it would be a major achievement for me). What gives me happiness is the excellent collaboration with other exceptional users in the service of the project, as well as in mainspace. Perhaps what irritated me a bit was that it seemed, since the last elections, that few users candidated only to gain the coordinator hat, without further being active as coordinators. For the new team I would recommend a better organization with each of us having a previously assigned responsibility. Currently there are no assigned duties for each individual coordinator, so everyone just makes what they want and what they think it's necessary inside the project (this results in having a few very inactive departments). Thank you for your questions and concern. --Eurocopter (talk) 11:52, 23 September 2009 (UTC)
Thank you for your rsponse. I second your suggestion that coordinators are delegated responsibilities on which at least part of the time must be spent. Keep up the good work. All the best for re-election. AshLin (talk) 13:31, 24 September 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, well[edit]

I don't object to what you did (it looks okay, even if it still is way outside the pale of WP:MOS and will give someone a headache to copyedit), but my main objection was and is to stuff like adding unretrievable citations (faux citations, if you will), to using the page like a sandbox (at some point, it was half in Romanian!, not to mention the bad, often ridiculous English - such as translating Eforie as Euphoria), and to structuring the content into the highly redundant "life" and "chronology" format. All in all, the article will have to be redone either way, if it is to move anywhere but down. And translating it from the Ro version, which is almost exactly as problematic, is simply not the way to go. I have the sources, I just need the time and energy to approach that big a subject, and I would not object to a concentrated and judicious effort from any other editor that would not reek of hodgepodge amateurism. Dahn (talk) 12:06, 24 September 2009 (UTC)

Lewis McGee ACR[edit]

Hi mate, personally it doesn't fuss me too much as I was the first to support it, but just a reminder that under the new rules this ACR should've remained open for 5 days, not 3 'n' a bit... ;-) Cheers, Ian Rose (talk) 09:23, 10 October 2009 (UTC)

Cologne War comments[edit]

I've incorporated many of your comments into the article Cologne War, and although it is probably not as heavily cited as you would prefer, I think it is closer to your model. Would you take another look, and see if this meets your approval? Auntieruth55 (talk) 17:55, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

World War I contest[edit]

Hi Eurocopter. I'm not sure if you have seen, but I posted a comment here regarding prospective awards for the World War I contest, and I was wondering if you would like to comment? Cheers, Abraham, B.S. (talk) 05:40, 3 November 2009 (UTC)

Hi mate. On another WWI Contest note, I have just noticed that there is inconsistency in how many points one is awarded on their submissions page and the main contest page. For example, on the submissions page the points for a Featured Sound or Picture is 35 points, while on the main page it is 40. This needs to be fixed up. Cheers, Abraham, B.S. (talk) 01:23, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
Thanks mate. It seems that EyeSerene is willing and able to make the barnstars and awards also, so that should hopefully be done soon. Cheers, Abraham, B.S. (talk) 11:33, 6 November 2009 (UTC)

Hi Eurocopter. In a bit of a last-ditch effort to see if I could generate some more editors to the contest before it starts, I went and spammed all the task force talk pages with the same notice that you had BrownBot send out to all Milhist editors, so hopefully a few more prople will join! I must say, also, that you have done an excellent job in putting the whole contest together, so thanks, your efforts are much appreciated! :) Cheers, Abraham, B.S. (talk) 13:45, 10 November 2009 (UTC)

Hi mate. Good idea on the postponement. I just integrated Sturmvogel's points for reviewing idea into the contest then, placing a section in the "Scoring" table awarding a generic 2 points for a substantial review of a GAN, ACR or FAC. I will now go and add this to each of the submissions pages, but feel free to tweak/correct as necessary! Cheers, Abraham, B.S. (talk) 01:02, 11 November 2009 (UTC)
I'm thinking we should actually drop the "substantial" altogether. I originally added it in there as Sturmvogel suggested it should be, basicly, a thorough/decent review, but now it is probably a little confusing. Cheers, Abraham, B.S. (talk) 00:18, 12 November 2009 (UTC)
Bryce, don't know if your last comment was partially in response to my message here... While you and I would probably agree on what "substantial" means, it will be subjective so I'm in favour of dropping it no matter what. I've also floated the idea of awarding of somewhat lower points for ACR/FAC comments, while treating GAR as automatically/objectively "substantial" and keeping as 2 points because it's generally a one-person job and involves a fair bit of effort when you consider all the steps involved. As long as "substantial" goes I'm not too fussed about differentiating points, just that I think we usually get a decent number of reviewers at ACR/FAC, but GARs we need to encourage any way we can. Cheers, Ian Rose (talk) 01:16, 12 November 2009 (UTC)
It was partially due to your comment, but I think in general it best not be used as, for example, who is to say if someone supports an article they have not given it a "substantial review"? I do somewhat agree with you about the points differentiation, but I do also think it is just simplier and easier to have them lumped together, and it is not devaluing one over the other. Cheers, Abraham, B.S. (talk) 10:41, 12 November 2009 (UTC)

Hi Eurocopter. A few comments have poped up on the World War I Contest talk page you might like to weigh in at. Most noticably, the number of points awarded for a DYK and ITN here, and awarding points for reviewing peer reviews here. Cheers, Abraham, B.S. (talk) 02:53, 21 November 2009 (UTC)

Hi mate. I just noticed then that you awarded User:Redmarkviolinist points for reviewing the articles Frederick Scherger and Dennis Gorski, however neither had anything to do with the First World War. I, and I think a few others, assumed that points would only be awarded for reviewing an article if it were in the scope of the First World War. Is this not the case, then, or was this just an oversight? Cheers, Abraham, B.S. (talk) 10:00, 21 November 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for your notice! I've even left a notice on his submission talk page but completely forgot about it. --Eurocopter (talk) 10:13, 21 November 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for fixing that; it just got me a little confused! Lol. Cheers, Abraham, B.S. (talk) 11:44, 21 November 2009 (UTC)

Hi Eurocopter. I see you have just gone and done a Redmarkviolinist, so to speak, lol. Frederick Scherger, of which you just completed a Good article review of, is not under the scope of the World War I Task force, and is the same article Redmarkviolinist listed as reviewed for A-Class. ;-) Cheers, Abraham, B.S. (talk) 00:33, 26 November 2009 (UTC)

Heh, I figured the quick turnaround there was because you might have been looking at it for the Aviation contest (my head spins a little from all the competitions, guess I'm not the only one). However, fear not, you can always do the Hippolyte De La Rue GAN, since he definitely qualifies for WWI... ;-) Cheers, Ian Rose (talk) 00:54, 26 November 2009 (UTC) ("call me opportunistic, I don't care!")
God, it seems like I don't know anymore on what world I'm living on... In the past two weeks my wiki-time got so limited that I barely managed to take care of the contest. When I've noticed that familiar article on the GAN list I was convinced that it's part of our scope and didn't pay enough attention when reading it. Actually I was so tired and rushed last evening that I did not even notice that the men served in the military starting with 1921. Thanks guys for noticing me and if you see me making such stupid mistakes from now on feel free to revert me! Cheers, --Eurocopter (talk) 12:06, 26 November 2009 (UTC)
Think nothing of it, mate - you've been the driving force behind this contest and your efforts both kicking it off and maintaining it are much appreciated! Cheers, Ian Rose (talk) 12:20, 26 November 2009 (UTC)
Here, here! Abraham, B.S. (talk) 13:10, 26 November 2009 (UTC)

Swiss Air Force[edit]

My apologies. There had been no edits made to the article since the end of September, and the review was transcluded to the article talk page. The review was open for a full week... However, if you would like to nominate the article again for GAN, after having taken care of the issues, I will re-review it right away, so that it doesn't have to sit through the waiting period again. I keep a pretty close eye on the GAN page, so I should see it when it comes up, or just drop a note on my talk page. Dana boomer (talk) 14:10, 7 November 2009 (UTC)

A late reply (busy in real life, sorry)[edit]

You said: "That's very simple Dc, Croitoru might be indeed a good economist but has zero managerial experience, which is vital for a PM. In the best case he would have been appropiate for the Ministry of Finance, but he was proposed for the PM position just because he's Basescu's puppet. Regarding the second part of your message, I think you misunderstood me (probably because I forgot the inverted commas when I described PD a strong promoter of liberalism and their flat tax measure as liberal). What are you suggesting now, that I'm marxist? Then, open your eyes and read above that I expressed my support for authentic liberalism. Again, let's stop here and not make Biru's talk page a place for our political debate. --Eurocopter (talk) 16:20, 8 December 2009 (UTC)"

1) Why are you calling Dahn brainwashed regarding the current political situation in Romania? You see that he has the grasp of more things than his interlocutors, don't you? In the absurd case, you could blame him of being a brainwasher, never brainwashed. Give him credit at least that his opinions and conclusions are certainly his own. 2) Are you sure you can discern the matter without having some personal involvement? It is a well-known fact that people rarely vote differently in the same family, that people with similar social situation have similar political views. You definitively must be somehow, indirectly or indirectly connected to the military, hence you or someone you know stands to loose a pension privilege or maybe even the job if the economic plans agreed with the IMF are pushed forward. Can you say for certain that your political opinions are intellectual and not based on personal experience/implications? It is a known fact that the army voted more for Geoana. 3) I have not suggested you are a Marxist. Either you misunderstood, or I expressed myself insufficiently clear. But you voted and support here in discussions a Marxist: Mircea Geoana (see his economic plans). I do "blame" you for supporting a Marxist. 4) There was no choice between 2 evils (btw, you never even said you chose between 2 evils; for all i know you might consider Geaona a good), there was a good, positive plan and a good, positive team to take Romania out of economic and political crisis, and there was a bad, negative plan and bad, negative gang to push Romania back into Iliescu's era with the added bonus of economic oligarchs in the true Russian style. It was a classical battle between good and evil, and good won. I am sorry you made a mistake this time, it happens, and I hope you would not repeat it next time. Basescu is but a small champion of the good. Constantinescu was also a positive champion in 1996, but it turned out he had no team capable of running the country. Basescu has. There is one very positive thing that came out of this 3-years long anti-Basescu campaign: good people dare more to get involved these days. 5) I compared Croitoru with Sachs and Krugman, and I do stand by that comparison. Sachs had no managerial experience when he was first given a job, and he performed it brilliantly. Krugman has been named puppet by many idiots on tv. You have to realize that some people are exceptional, and you/we have no right to treat them with the same level as everybody: you/we don't ask of a managerial experience as a job prerequest from a Sachs, you/we don't ask for a favorable media when hiring a Krugman, you/we just shut our mouths up in front of such people, you/we just thank God they agree to get involved. Think about it. It is absolutely unjust and very disrespectful what you said about Croitoru. He is not your more or less average Basescu, Constantinescu or Geoana. OK? You don't ask a renouned scientist to adhere to a certain economic philosophy you have (even a "correct" one); you change your understanding of economic thought based on what top scientists tell you. Science is above politics. Dc76\talk 15:29, 16 December 2009 (UTC)
Taken into consideration. But I'm not going to start the discussion again especially when it's started by one of Dahn's militants. I know there is always somebody keeping your side. --Eurocopter (talk) 15:37, 16 December 2009 (UTC)
What is this supposed to mean? Are you accusing me of something? Are you calling me a Dahn's militant? Do you deny me the right to have my own opinions? Do you deny the existence of extensive but civilized content disputes I had with him? For what reason do you bring up the ArbCom case? I have never discussed you with anybody, if that's what you wonder. Or do you simply want to throw some mud at me since this seems to be the fashion these days? I would appreciate your clarifications. Dc76\talk 16:18, 16 December 2009 (UTC)
Look, probably I've overreacted and I apologise. But at the moment trust me I have many, many other better things to spend my wiki-time on, rather than discuss Romanian politics which is full of rubbish (not to say shit, which is quite gross for an encyclopedia). So yes, I respect and took into consideration your opinions, but sincerely I don't want to continue such a discussion. All the best, --Eurocopter (talk) 23:06, 16 December 2009 (UTC)

Question about WWI taskforce contest[edit]

I'd like to withdraw from the WWI taskforce contest, but still keep working in this area and keep my page there active as a record of what I do between now and the end of February (and even beyond). My page is here, but hasn't been updated since I created it. Would it be simplest to mark me as withdrawn, and let me just keep adding things to my submissions page as I do them? i.e. Keep contributing to the content drive, but withdraw from the competitive aspects of it - kind of like a non-competing participant - is that possible? Carcharoth (talk) 02:27, 26 December 2009 (UTC)

Since you created yourself your submission page I hadn't have it watchlisted until now and was unaware of your submissions. I'm terribly sorry and apologise if this changed somehow your contest performance. As I looked over your submission page, you seem to be at the moment just 1 point behind the last competitor which qualifies for the second round (and he hasn't been very active recently). So if you want to continue, go ahead, create an article and catch him up (you still have more than three days to do this). I will award you the points for your submissions first thing after arriving home from my holiday. Thanks and best regards, --Eurocopter (talk) 16:34, 26 December 2009 (UTC)
Well, I'm happy to stay in the contest, but I suppose it does rather depends on how I end up doing after round one. :-) I've done a bit more now and will be doing some more over the next few hours. As I said, I'll be carrying on regardless of what happens in the contest, but it will be interesting to see what the results of round one are. I'll try not to shove things through at the last minute... Carcharoth (talk) 22:34, 29 December 2009 (UTC) I did slip two more in at the last minute, but that's it now from me. I'm excited to see the work being done on other memorial articles (Beaumont-Hamel Memorial is GA and Vimy Memorial is A-class). Am off to see if anyone wants to talk about this on the memorials taskforce page). Thanks for all your work on this contest! Carcharoth (talk) 00:01, 30 December 2009 (UTC)
Yes, thank you for noticing me! --Eurocopter (talk) 00:17, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for your notice as well and please apologise my mistakes. I have to finish everything during this night as tommorow morning i'm leaving again on holiday till saturday. Cheers, --Eurocopter (talk) 00:26, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

Contest points[edit]

Hi Eurocopter. I just have a quick query regarding the points for Walter Peeler going from A to FA for the World War I Contest. You awarded the article 18 points for this elevation in status, yet according to the point scoring table this is worth 25 points, so I was just wondering why the discrepency? Anyway, I hope you had a good holliday and a happy New Year. Cheers, Abraham, B.S. (talk) 12:01, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

That's what I thought your rational would be. ;-) However, I figured that when a new round started everything, basically, started afresh. So, from my understanding, I would have been credited with raising Walter Peeler from Stub to A during the first round and been awarded 27 points, but in the new round this would be, basically, irrelevant and I would have been credited with raising the article from A to FA, and thus awarded 25 points, much similar to how it works in the monthly contest. Cheers, Abraham, B.S. (talk) 12:16, 3 January 2010 (UTC)
No, I can understand this system and as long as it is consistent with everyone than I have no specific complaints about it. I do, however, think this may be a little more difficult to track in some cases in comparision to the other. Thanks for the clarification. Cheers, Abraham, B.S. (talk) 12:58, 3 January 2010 (UTC)
I'm confident in your abilities, so it should be all fine. ;-) I did notice a slight mistake, however ... you awarded me 7 points for a DYK on the scoreboard! Lol. Cheers, Abraham, B.S. (talk) 14:48, 3 January 2010 (UTC)
Well, sorry for the "inconvenience". :)) --Eurocopter (talk) 15:32, 3 January 2010 (UTC)
Lol! Cheers, Abraham, B.S. (talk) 01:03, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

Re: Horses in World War I[edit]

Yep, I think I should be able to have a crack at it. Cheers, Abraham, B.S. (talk) 00:30, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

Hey Eurocopter. I just thought I would let you know that I went to review the above today, only to find that someone else had started a review of the article a few days ago, just they didn't note they were reviewing the article on the GAN page. Oh, well. Cheers, Abraham, B.S. (talk) 08:09, 16 January 2010 (UTC)

Contributing to Cold War history project[edit]

As of today, I have returned to Wikipedia to contribute to what I see is now a major Cold War history "project." I last participated in the Cold War history topic in 2006, and just today updated my user page.

I've had to take the time out in order to write and publish a trilogy of relevant books: Nuclear Insights: The Cold War Legacy. available on Amazon.com, all derived from a four-handed collaboration for Nuclear Shadowboxing: Contemporary Threats from Cold War Weaponry.

With that done, I have some time to contribute, and see considerable progress and organization. Your activities as a project coordinator seem most relevant, so I'd like to get your advice on what and how to go about it.

According to my records, my editing was limited to the topics "Cold War" and "Nuclear Weapons."

From a brief review, I see now that I could also contribute to "Nuclear Proliferation," which apparently needs help. In addition, the "Legacy" subtitle under "Cold War" would fit well with the focus of my latest books.

It is also evident that there there is a steep learning curve for conformity with format.

More WWI contest questions[edit]

A few quick questions:

  • I have a DYK approved and waiting in the queue to go on the Main Page tomorrow. The article was written on 30 December and nominated before the end of the last round (sorry, I forgot the last round ended before 30 December) but not approved until a few days ago. I was waiting for it to go up before adding it to my submissions page (I hadn't realised it took so long for DYK now, but the process does look most efficient). I got the article creation points this round, and I assume the DYK is this round as well. What happens with future DYKs nominated towards the end of this round?
    • In this case the DYK counts for the current round. If you nominate a DYK during the current round and seems that it will be promoted during the next round you decide whether the points awarded will count for the current or the respective next round (but you have to decide of course before the end of the ending round). --Eurocopter (talk) 12:52, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
  • In the first round, you assessed one of the articles I created as B-class and added the checklist, but it doesn't seem to be displaying properly. See here.
  • About the same article, if I try and get that to the standards for a featured list, would there be a level-up number of points, or a straight 40 points, and would the promotion have to be before the end of this round (rather than just the nomination being in this round)?
    • Besides the points awarded for the article improvement, you'll get another 40 points for promoting a FL. --Eurocopter (talk) 12:52, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
  • There is a B-Class checklist entry on my submissions page that seems to be getting missed with each update. I intend to add more B-list checklist entries there, and it is "only" 0.1 at the moment, so not urgent, but was wondering if that was just being missed, or there was a problem there?
    • I'm not going to edit the section each time you submit one or two assessments or B-class checklists for just 0.1 or 0.2 points. I'll wait for more to be submitted and if you don't submit anymore be sure you'll get the points at the end of the round. --Eurocopter (talk) 12:52, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
  • I'm still working on Stone of Remembrance, to make it more start than stub. When I've finished, shall I submit it to that place you or someone mentioned earlier for re-assessment, or is that only for B-class or higher assessments? If I think a stub can be bumped up to start, is it easier just to ask you, and shall I add a note in future if I add something to the submissions page that I am still working on?
    • Feel free to simply announce me and I'll assess it.
  • Thanks! Carcharoth (talk) 04:58, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
    • Any questions are welcome! --Eurocopter (talk) 12:52, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
      • Thanks for the answers. I do have one quick question, about scope again. I recently created a very small stub at For Services Rendered. As I'm not sure whether that is in scope, I didn't submit it. However, my questions about scope aren't getting much response. See here and here. Are there better places to ask these questions, or should I be more specific? I will ask at the WWI task force talk page section explicitly about For Services Rendered, but was hoping for a response to the general question as well. My feeling is that the articles are more about culture and cultural history, than about military history, but others may think there should be some room in the scope to include these. Certainly the First World War poets and their poetry, I would have thought, but then where do you draw the line? Carcharoth (talk) 03:54, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
  • Sorry for cluttering my submissions page with notes - thanks for moving them to the talk page! Carcharoth (talk) 12:34, 10 January 2010 (UTC)
    • No problem. Regarding scope questions mentioned above, the best place for adressing them is the main project talk page. Although I could say my opinions if certain articles are within our scope or not, I don't believe they should be decisive. Raise a thread on the project talk page and I would probably comment there. Cheers --Eurocopter (talk) 13:05, 10 January 2010 (UTC)
      • I think it might depend on whether people active in the project feel able to assess the articles... :-) I was a bit ambitious with The Muse in Arms. That is definitely more literary than military. But I enjoyed doing that, so I don't really mind what the verdict is. I have started a talk page thread (I linked it above), but as I said, no-one has replied there yet. I'll go and add this one there. Carcharoth (talk) 15:34, 10 January 2010 (UTC)

Protecting Military of Iran[edit]

Eurocopter, I'd like to semi-protect this page, given the number of times I keep having to revert vandalism, removal of references, etc etc, mostly from anon IPs - take a look at the edit history. But just wanted to run it past a coordinator first. What do you think? Best wishes for the New Year, Buckshot06 (talk) 07:38, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

Happy New Year! Of course, go ahead and semi-protect it, especially as it is a quite delicate topic. We should track such articles more rigorously as disruption in equipment and current inventory numbers is common (besides Iran, see Georgia, Syria, etc). --Eurocopter (talk) 10:40, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

ACR close[edit]

I am not questioning your closure since it looks good, but why did you close Wikipedia:WikiProject Aviation/Assessment/Petlyakov Pe-8 but not do any of the other promotion steps? We are now cross-listing with Aviation so it ought to be fine for MILHIST coords to close their reviews that are cross-listed to us. -MBK004 23:10, 11 January 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, I had to leave unexpectedly yesterday evening just when I was starting to close the ACR. Took care of it now. Cheers, --Eurocopter (talk) 13:30, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

Milhist task force reorganisation[edit]

I've now completed the merger of the Romanian military history task force into the Balkan military history task force. As you were listed as a coordinator of the Romanian task force, I've transferred your coordinatorship over; you may wish to update your watchlist accordingly. All the best, EyeSerenetalk 12:07, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

Sorry that came as a surprise, Eurocopter. I hope you don't mind me correcting you though - the discussion (now archived here) wasn't on the coords talk page. It was on the main milhist talk page for three months (from October 2009 until a few days ago) and was announced in the milhist newsletter. I closed it down about week ago for lack of further activity. However, if you think the merger is wrong, maybe that should be discussed further at WT:MILHIST? EyeSerenetalk 12:50, 18 January 2010 (UTC)
Yes, Kirill made the same point you've made, that Romania isn't in the Balkans. I assume everyone else who commented felt that Romania comes under the wider definition of "Balkans", even if it's not in the actual geographical Balkan peninsular. Whether that's correct or not I don't know, but it was the consensus view. I think Tom might be looking at further task force reorganisation fairly soon though, so if you think the Balkan task force could now do with a more accurate name that might be a good time to mention it (and if you can't access the discussion, I'll try to remember to mention it on your behalf). EyeSerenetalk 21:03, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

Horses in World War I GAN[edit]

Hi Eurocopter. The GAN reviewer of Horses in World War I contacted me recently asking if I was still interesed in reviewing the article as they are preoccupied with issues in their RL. However, I am also a little busy now, trying to organise everything for my first year at university, so don't think I could properly review the article, and was wondering if you would be interested in doing so yourself? Cheers, Abraham, B.S. (talk) 23:59, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

Hi Eurocopter! Would the above be anything that you would have an interest in? If not, I'm going to ping some other people who may be interested in reviewing, but wanted to give you first dibs. Either way is good, I'd just like to get the review under way again! Thanks in advance, Dana boomer (talk) 23:06, 9 February 2010 (UTC)

Two WWI articles that need checking[edit]

Not sure how much time you have to look at these two articles I stumbled across:

I would have normally assessed them, but I think they need a closer look than that (they might have been copied from somewhere else). If you would prefer a note about this to be put on the task force talk page, I'll do that. Carcharoth (talk) 09:21, 10 February 2010 (UTC)

WWI contest and MilHist newsletter[edit]

Hiya. I just read the latest MilHist newsletter, and was half-expecting to see the results of phase two of the WWI contest listed there (given that the results of phase 1 appeared in the December 2009 issue). Is the plan to have the results of phase 2 listed in the March issue, alongside the results of phase 3 (i.e. the overall results)? Speaking of which, I see I need to get a move on with more submissions for phase 3! :-) Carcharoth (talk) 05:40, 5 March 2010 (UTC)

Aww. Looks like the contest is finished now! :-( I failed to achieve my personal aim, which was to bring a large number of the articles I started or assessed to B-class (though I did get a few up there), but I've really enjoyed the contest and am going to continue working on a range of WWI articles to get them to B-class (at least). I also noticed the glittery objects in your sandbox, and I was wondering if as well as those you were going to make a list of articles that reached a certain class-level during the contest, or were created during the contest, as part of a summary of the contest? If you weren't planning to make such a list or table, would it be OK if I did something along those lines? Carcharoth (talk) 13:32, 11 March 2010 (UTC) Oh, and thanks for the reply to the above note, and thanks for the work in running the contest!

Battle of the Argesul[edit]

Hi there Eurocopter! I was directed to the World War I Task Force from WP:FEEDBACK pertaining about User:Buggie111/Battle of the Argesul. Since you identify yourself from Romania, I'd like some suggestions on building the article. I have one ref which describes it a bit more in detail, but I still have not added info from it. So once gain, TIA.

Question[edit]

Hey,

I was considering running for Coordinator for the Military History WikiProject, but I am not sure. I was very busy in the "real world" during the last elections and did not think I was prepared to devote the time to the WikiProject that it truly deserves. I'm back now and I have started getting involved again. I've always respected your opinion, especially after we served together as coordinators in Tranche VII. I would really appreciate your advice on this. Thanks and Have a Great day! Lord Oliver The Olive Branch 22:55, 10 March 2010 (UTC)

Thank you so much for your advice! I think I have decided to wait for the next election to run (if I run at all). I feel like I still need to get more involved within the WP. So that if I run I will feel certain that my time and talents can best be used to help the best WP on Wikipedia. Thanks SO much and Have A Great Day! :) Lord Oliver The Olive Branch 18:35, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

More stats[edit]

I hope you don't mind, but I did some more stats on the WWI contest. I posted here, then wrote this page and then posted this. It gives a slightly different picture to the stats you presented (in particular, the figure of 65 existing articles improved when compared with the figure of 238 article improvement level ups - both figures are right, they are just saying different things by measuring in different ways). I do think the extra detail is useful - what do you think? Carcharoth (talk) 01:22, 29 March 2010 (UTC)

Romanian Land Forces[edit]

Hello mate. I see you are "are actively involved" with the Romanian Land Forces article. I couldn't help notice there is no record of the army's role in the revolution. I'd be interested to learn more about this and maybe add to the article, your thoughts? Ryan4314 (talk) 01:22, 30 April 2010 (UTC)

First of all, excuse me for my late response, I was quite inactive on wiki during the recent period. The most important issue here on wiki regarding Romanian military history is the lack of reliable English sources and low level of interest besides Western historiography. The best thing I could do is to start adding information based on press articles - but that wouldn't be very professional for an encyclopedia. Briefly, starting with the evening of the 21st December the army switched sides and joined the protesters; afterwards, until 22nd evening there where intense fightings between protesters and army on one side and Securitate together with other loyalist forces on the other side. What is most important is that out of 1.150 victims of the revolution, about 940 died in confrontations between army and securitate after Ceausescu was overthrown and the new regime seized power. All the best --Eurocopter (talk) 19:47, 5 May 2010 (UTC)
Hello, since I first asked this question I have done some research on the Armata during the revolution. I thoroughly recommend the book "The Romanian Revolution of December 1989" by Peter Siani-Davies, a heavily cited book by an englishman. I'd like to write a very neutral, general paragraph and hoped you could give me some feedback on it please. Ryan4314 (talk) 21:04, 4 December 2010 (UTC)

A4 motorway (Romania)[edit]

Could you please add at least one reference? Tx, Nergaal (talk) 07:48, 3 December 2010 (UTC)

Done! Anyway I couldn't find any source implying exactly that Constanta bypass and extension to the Bulgarian border will be designated A4. However, according to Romanian legislation the next commissioned motorway should be designated A4 (as A3 was the last one) and Constanta bypass stretch (22km) is the closest new motorway to be completed (late 2011). The previously named A4 motorway, Targu Mures - Iasi currently undergoes feasebility studies and there aren't much chances that construction works would start before 2015. Cheers, --Eurocopter (talk) 18:51, 3 December 2010 (UTC)


I googled around for a while and it does not seem to be a separate motorway. There have been plans since the beginning to have a sector past Constanta, and now it seems they just got the guarantee to get EU funding for this segment. Not even CNADR implies anything about a new A4. I believe it would be safer to merge the stub for now into the A2 one. Nergaal (talk) 19:02, 4 December 2010 (UTC)
That would be wrong, because A2 will end in Constanta bypass which will be a separate motorway. The A2-A4 interchange is planned at the 13th kilometer of the bypass. Check on google maps (http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&ll=44.130971,28.515015&spn=0.720526,1.234589&z=10).

File source problem with File:IonAntonescu.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:IonAntonescu.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of that website's terms of use of its content. However, if the copyright holder is a party unaffiliated from the website's publisher, that copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider verifying that you have specified sources for those files as well. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged per Wikipedia's criteria for speedy deletion, F4. If the image is copyrighted and non-free, the image will be deleted 48 hours after 17:40, 27 December 2010 (UTC) per speedy deletion criterion F7.

License tagging for File:71st AB Control Tower.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:71st AB Control Tower.jpg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information; to add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click the "Edit" tab at the top of the page and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 17:05, 20 July 2011 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:Su-25SM.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Su-25SM.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license it under the given license.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy.

Non-free rationale for File:Vanatori de Munte.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Vanatori de Munte.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. 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. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page.

Joint Task Force Headquarters 2[edit]

What was this Joint Task Force Headquarters 2 of the Romanian Armed Forces? Cheers Buckshot06 (talk) 09:15, 5 February 2013 (UTC)

Sincerelly no idea. In what period did you find it? Do you have a translation? --Eurocopter (talk) 09:51, 5 February 2013 (UTC)
Was added in this edit to the Romanian Land Forces article. Later seemingly became the 2nd Division. Can you do a little searching on the ro-internet? Buckshot06 (talk) 05:29, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
Probably it was a Joint task force headquarters within the Ministry of Defense, comprising heads of the air force, navy and land forces. --Eurocopter (talk) 12:55, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
Can you find anything in Romanian on the internet about it? It seems unlikely to have been a triservice committee, since it later became the 2nd Infantry Division. Buckshot06 (talk) 07:24, 12 February 2013 (UTC)

Re: CIV south[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your message regarding the motorway towards Lugoj. However, using that designation in the articles requires reliable, published sources that support it, according to the Wikipedia guidelines. I think that it is the most correct to wait until it is officially announced. Thank you and best regards to you as well, BaboneCar (talk) 15:08, 5 March 2013 (UTC)

Better source request for File:Eremia Grigorescu.jpg[edit]

Thanks for your upload to Wikipedia:

You provided a source, but it is difficult for other users to examine the copyright status of the image because the source is incomplete. Please consider clarifying the exact source so that the copyright status may be checked more easily. It is best to specify the exact Web page where you found the image, rather than only giving the source domain or the URL of the image file itself. Please update the image description with a URL that will be more helpful to other users in determining the copyright status.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source in a complete manner. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page or me at my talk page. Thank you. Message delivered by Theo's Little Bot (opt-out) 21:28, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

This notification is placed on your talk page because a bot has identified you either as the uploader of the file, or as a contributor to its metadata. It would be appreciated if you could carefully review the information the bot added. To opt out of these notifications, please follow the instructions here. Thanks!

Hi from Wil[edit]

Hi, Eurocopter. I've been going through some of the top contributors to the Military history WikiProject, and I noticed your contribution dropped off significantly around 2010. I looked at your talk page, and, while your link to the resignation letter seems to have been archived, I did find the editorial in the Bugle. You initially cited real life problems, but it was hard not to notice the sentence "Contributing to Wikipedia is something most of us do as a hobby; time spent in useless conflicts is precious editing time wasted." in boldface. I'm trying to understand why contributors like you have significantly dropped off in your edits. If you would take the time to add your experience to my talk page, I would really appreciate it. You can also email me at wllm@wllm.com, if you'd like to private msg. No matter what, I wish you happy trails. ,Wil (talk) 04:01, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

Revert of my edits[edit]

You reverted all of my edits in the article War in Donbass without a proper reason. You stated you were reverting removal of sources, but you reverted much more than that. These were my edits:
1 - I changed the term insurgent to separatist because that's the common name by which they are called.
2 - The figure of 560–860 killed militants was based on older and out-of-date sources (separatist claims) which I replaced with one newer more up-to-date source (also separatist) citing 800 dead.
3 - Figure of 7,401 killed and wounded soldiers can be cited with just one proper source, there is no need for three sources for the same thing, so I removed two of them (one was even a blog I think; not allowed per WP policy).
4 - I shortened the text Some 20,000 Internal Affairs Ministry defections to 20,000 policemen deserted/defected, per the source.
Furthermore, you removed the link for the 18 reported dead soldiers from 5 August. I don't see anything wrong with these edits. If you do, please discuss it with me before reverting again. Thank you! EkoGraf (talk) 09:38, 7 August 2014 (UTC)
