Speedy deletion nomination of William Henry Gorman[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles. See the Article Wizard.

Thank you.

A tag has been placed on William Henry Gorman requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article, which appears to be about a real person, individual animal(s), an organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable. If this is the first page that you have created, then you should read the guide to writing your first article.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the article (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. UtherSRG (talk) 23:20, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Velocity, Inc.[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Velocity, Inc. requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organization or company, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for organizations and companies. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.

ID[edit]

Evening FlugKerl: Am I right to think that FlugKerl2 is someone completely different? I'm trying to get info on a photo (of a Twin Navion) by him or her! TSRL (talk) 21:43, 29 April 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the reply. I've been dabbling in Temco aircraft lately, so when I saw the photo I wondered which Twin Navion it was, the Camair or the Temco/Riley. After staring at some images in Jane's AWA 1956/7 I convinced myself it shows the Temco, largely because of the curved fin leading edge, but also the twin nose-lights. Both types could have tip tanks. Its windscreen is different from those in the 1956 shots of both types, having no central pillar, but I guess these things get renewed. Do you agree with this identification? Maybe there is a serial or Oshkosh record as a cross check. If it can be definitely typed it would be helpful to annotate the photo info. Cheers, TSRL (talk) 08:50, 30 April 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the info on TTN39/N108N and also for revising the caption and photo info. If you are going to do the TEMCO Riley, then JAWA56/7 has an article on it, plus another on the Camair for comparison, both quite detailed.TSRL (talk) 19:30, 30 April 2011 (UTC)

Agusta GA-series engines[edit]

FlugKerl, I've noticed you've been working on engines made by Agusta, such as the Agusta GA.40 and Agusta GA.70. I've added a section for their engines at Agusta#Aircraft engines. Do you know if there are many more original engines made by Agusta? If there aren't too many, say under 8 or so, we can add these engines to Template:AgustaWestland aircraft. If there are more than 8-10, we could create a separate infobox for the engines. Thanks. - BilCat (talk) 09:30, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

Date format[edit]

Nice article on the Chester Swee'Pea, if a little short.I had to edit your dates to the standard Wikipedia format of dd mm yyyy - e.g. 20 July 1947. Not a big problem, but bear it in mind for your future articles as dates not in this format will be changed by someone eventually. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Petebutt (talkcontribs)

Abrial A-260 et al[edit]

Thanks for contributing to the Aviation Project. Your Abrial A-260 article is a little short even for a stub,and might be confused with a place-holder posted just to turn a red-link blue. Carry on writing articles, but can you ensure that they have more flesh before posting. A second source with spec.s and more info would be nice too. The idea of the red-link is to indicate where an article is required to be written. Posting sub-stubs just to remove red-links is counter-productive and against WP:REDDEAL. I am not posting this to be antagonistic;if you wish to discuss it further, append to this entry or at my ser page or better yet on Talk:List of aircraft. Keep up the good work, just a lot more before posting please.Petebutt (talk) 04:45, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

Duplicate articles[edit]

Hi, you appear to have created a duplicate of Velie Monocoupe with Monocoupe Model 22. Your article is referenced, the other (which I believe ids the more common name) has a photo. I notice that the manufacturers are different in each article. It has been suggested that the referenced material from the new article is merged into Velie Monocoupe leaving a redirect behind. Cheers. Nimbus (Cumulus nimbus floats by) 19:24, 7 June 2011 (UTC)

Bit confused FlugKerl you have edited the Velie Monocoupe article to show it appears between the Model 22 and Model 90 but the Model 22 article doesnt clarify the relationship. Are they the same aircraft? can they be merged? MilborneOne (talk) 11:58, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

Your edit of Independence Municipal Airport (Kansas) article[edit]

Thank you for your edit of the Independence Municipal Airport (Kansas) article. Could you please provide the page number from the February 2008 Flying Magazine and add it to the article citation that you recently edited? I am unable to locate the information that you cited in the IDP article in the magazine. Cuprum17 (talk) 18:09, 27 October 2011 (UTC)

It's page 24. Thought that it was interesting that they noted the first plane handled FlugKerl (talk) 18:58, 27 October 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for your prompt reply. It would have been a Cessna aircraft because Cessna operates the tower at IDP. As a part of the agreement with the City of Independence, Cessna has to supply the tower operations with personnel during parts of the day. I would guess that 90% of the traffic at the airport is generated by Cessna through their testing and certification operations at the local Cessna plant. Independence is the single-engine facility and the Cessna Citation Mustang line is located here. Cessna has been good for the city, but I can't help but wish that they had a larger backlog of aircraft to build these days. The economy has been rough on the general aviation industry and lay-offs at Cessna has not helped the local economy. Montgomery County where Independence, Kansas is located has the worse un-employment rate in Kansas lately. I hope things get better. Cheers. Cuprum17 (talk) 13:08, 28 October 2011 (UTC)

New aircraft articles[edit]

Don't forget that you can announce new aircraft articles at Wikipedia:New articles (Aircraft)Petebutt (talk) 15:23, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

Hello FlugKerl. Congratulations on creating Richard VanGrunsven. It is a great article and well-sourced. I have just done a little copy-editing. The opening paragraph includes the following sentence: The number of VanGrunsven-designed homebuilt aircraft produced each year in North America exceeds the combined production of all commercial general aviation companies. Could you check the source cited for this sentence because I think the sentence contains an error? It states that the number of Vans' aircraft "produced each year in North America exceeds ... " and compares it with "all commercial general aviation companies." Vans' aircraft are manufactured in large numbers by amateur builders all around the world, not just in the USA and Canada, so the large number of such aircraft produced annually shouldn't be confined to North America. Secondly, if you are talking about "all commercial general aviation companies" you are including such companies world-wide. The number of aircraft produced by the world's general aviation companies is unlikely to be known with any accuracy because, outside North America, Europe and other English-speaking countries, aircraft manufacturers don't report their production statistices to anyone, and are not obliged to do so. I suggest the sentence should say:
  • The number of VanGrunsven-designed homebuilt aircraft produced each year exceeds the combined production of all commercial general aviation companies in North America.

Knoll Aircraft Company[edit]

Hey FlugKerl, I just thought I'd let you know that I saw your article Knoll Aircraft Company in the New Articles list-- There is a good number of citations and references.However, I think the article seems to contain a few errors: the article is confusing. I do not understand what you are trying to say.It would be great if you could also add references to the related article Heinrich Hertel.

It's nice to see you editing! Amy Z (talk) 02:17, 19 August 2012 (UTC)

It is choppy.. The whole article started as a small citation about the beechcraft factory from a flying magazine article. Which had a mention of the yellow air cab company that I remembered in an old article on a Stout airplane I made a year ago, which led to the Knoll aircraft company, that was based at the same site, which led to half a dozen more airplane articles left to create. My articles are pretty choppy, as I gather every citation and ref I can, place them in the standard template, then build from there. In this case, Knoll has a half decent website to build from, but personal websites are not the best primary sources. I hope others with good sources can help fill in the prose in the middle. In this case, I could probably email a few people in the Wichita area and get some good stories to add... but one of Wikipedia's challenges is that if you really like a subject, you can't just add original research, even if you know the guy who built the aircraft. I doubt there is much out there on Knoll aircraft, but every once in a while I find a detailed article or newspaper story to build off of. I'll try to clean up the associated pages right after I get all my summer airshow photos imported into relevant pagesFlugKerl (talk) 04:05, 19 August 2012 (UTC)

Nomination of Livingston Gilson Irving for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Livingston Gilson Irving is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Livingston Gilson Irving until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion template from the top of the article. Clarityfiend (talk) 22:16, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

Request for an Interview[edit]

Hi FlugKerl,

Thank you for getting back to me about Knoll Aircraft Company.

I am a researcher at Carnegie Mellon University examining how to make interaction in Wikipedia more effective. Our research has shown that certain types of feedback encourage Wikipedians to edit more while others seem to discourage them. Experienced and less experienced Wikipedians seem to have different reactions to very similar feedback. I am interested in interviewing you about your reaction to the message I sent you. A discussion with you will help us better understand the types of feedback that can encourage newcomers's participation to Wikipedia without turning off old-timers.

I can talk with you via online chat, on Skype, over the phone, or just through Wikipedia messages if you are more comfortable with that. The interview should take take less than 60 minutes. You do need to be over 18 years old, and consent to be a part of the study in order to for me to interview you. This study has been approved by Carnegie Mellon's research ethics committee (the IRB), and the Wikipedia Research Committee.

Thank you for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you soon. We will be glad to send you a draft describing our research results right after the interview.

Cochran article[edit]

Greetings; Not sure if you read the talk page for the Cochran article but I'm pretty sure that every edit I made was very well-documented and justified (unless I fumble-fingered an edit). I've provided many references there, and converted some of the original references to online-accessible version. There was certainly no intentional "vandalism". My general policy is to talk first, wait, then edit if still appropriate. Fanatic W1K (talk) 01:33, 5 July 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for your assistance. I see your first edits were about Team America Rocketry Challenge... One of the National Association of Rocketry presidents also has the name Ed L Cochran. Are you related to the Ed Cochran and his daughter Courtney Watson that were proposed for deletion by the user Millapedia who seemed to set up an account just to AFD articles associated with them then disappeared? They have a lot of history in Howard county, and would be disappointing if people did not know what an impact the have had on the county.FlugKerl (talk)

Proposing Deletion of Articles Created that Fail Notability[edit]

It appears you have created several articles that Fail Notability - WP:Politician. Perhaps you aren't familiar with the criteria. To be notable a politician should have held statewide office. I see you have also created/contributed to several excellent aviation related articles. I appreciate your time and effort to expand that topic. MilaPedia (talk) 14:37, 8 August 2013 (UTC)

Nomination of William E. Eakle for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article William E. Eakle is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/William E. Eakle until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. MilaPedia (talk) 05:48, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

Notice of Nominations of Articles for Deletion[edit]

I proposed deletion of articles after my notice to you because I assumed their deletion would be uncontroversial. Since you removed the WP:PROD tags, I have reviewed the articles and researched the subjects in greater depth. I was not able to find any sources to improve the articles to meet the notability criteria, so I am nominating the Articles for Deletion to allow for discussion. There will be a link at the top of each page to allow you to share your thoughts. I would be more than happy to post notice of each one to you on this page if you prefer, but I thought this notice might suffice. I appreciate the efforts you have made in many areas regarding all things Howard County. I look forward to collaborating with you to improve those articles. MilaPedia (talk) 07:00, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

Comments at AfDs[edit]

In response to the (long) comment you pasted onto each of the above AfDs: while Janet S. Owens and Calvin Ball, III (and quite possibly others) may also fail the notability criteria, that is not a reason to keep other potentially non-notable entries. Feel free to nominate them for deletion, too. Further, you agree notability is subjective; turning those disparate and subjective viewpoints into an actionable consensus is the whole point of AfD. You think a topic is notable, someone else disagrees, a discussion is held at the AfD, and consensus is reached. To that end, please keep further comments concise and restricted to the merits of the particular article under discussion. Thanks. Mysterious Whisper 17:04, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

Edits to article kept after Afd discussion[edit]

German[edit]

FK, can you read German? Thanks. - BilCat (talk) 20:13, 15 November 2013 (UTC)

Ich spreche kein Deutsch, aber ich kann, wenn Sie mögen FlugKerl (talk) 22:40, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

Sorry, I don't. I was asking because if you did, de:Marenco SwissHelicopter SKYe SH09 might be a good article to translate/create. If you're not interested, I'll see what I can do with the English sources. Thanks anyway. - BilCat (talk) 03:47, 19 November 2013 (UTC)
Apologies for chiming in, but you can also paste the German article text into http://translate.google.com/. It will require a bit of clean up, but it does translate German fairly well. - Ahunt (talk) 13:01, 19 November 2013 (UTC)
I'll definitely read the German article that way. But if I write the article, I'll probably write most of it from the English sources directly, as that avoids any copyvio issues that might be present in the German wiki article. - BilCat (talk) 14:18, 19 November 2013 (UTC)
Good point. Google translate, plus a clean up, is probably a wide paraphrase anyway, by the time it is done! - Ahunt (talk) 14:37, 19 November 2013 (UTC)
Here is a quick version using the template and translation.... Marenco SwissHelicopter SKYe SH09 I will follow up with detail and citations, and I am sure Ahunt will clean up all the residue I leave behind. Translated articles are easy in that the specs and photo's are reusable, but the citations are published in a different language. If something is popular enough, it will have some English mention, but my favorite category - homebuilts can be difficult. I'm sure there is a long discussion on wikipedia on citing translated citations which I have not looked for yet. FlugKerl (talk) 17:01, 19 November 2013 (UTC)

Thank you both! Amazing things happen while asleep ;) - BilCat (talk) 00:22, 20 November 2013 (UTC)

Columbia Sister cities[edit]

I reverted your changes to Columbia's Sister cities because the first paragraph already ended with a period and because the places in second paragraph that you added are not sister cities. They might fit in elsewhere but not under that heading. -- Pemilligan (talk) 01:22, 5 December 2013 (UTC)

Modified sections to place information outside sister cities context. No need to remove cited information. FlugKerl (talk)

Hey Flugkerl, I have approved your access to Wikipedia:Keesings but need you to follow the instructions in the email I sent a week ago. Sadads (talk) 14:22, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

NRHP[edit]

You've added some articles containing the NRHP infobox, and the articles look good. When an NRHP infobox has no NRHP reference number it shows up on a list of articles needing work. I try to work on that list from time to time. I've been unable to find an NHRP reference number for these, your article on Wheatfield is one, Moundland is another. Are these and the others you've been working on NRHP listed properties? If not, you can use Infobox Historic Site rather than Infobox NRHP for your articles. If they are listed, do you know when they were listed? Thanks. --Generic1139 (talk) 20:09, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

County references recommend sites for inclusion in NRHP, but does not verify if owner completed application. Will use Infobox Historic Site until verified. FlugKerl (talk)

misspelled title[edit]

In [1] (and too many to estimate) you have omitted the apostrophe from the title. The publisher and year are missing as well. Making those fixes would allow others to verify your citation. See this for a workable example. TEDickey (talk) 20:34, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

Skytrain 500 deletion nomination[edit]

Hi FlugKerl, I have had to nominate this article for Deletion as it is based on incorrect information in the reference you quote: it should read Skyship 500 NOT Skytrain 500. An alternative to deletion would be to re-write the article for the Skyship 500 and re-name it --Petebutt (talk) 14:13, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 20[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited James A. Clark, Sr., you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page St.John's College. 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.

Aviation related articles[edit]

Hi Flugkerl, nice to see some of the more esoteric a/c getting articles. One point though, could you possibly announce your new articles at Wikipedia:New articles (Aircraft). This is not mandatory, but it does give other editors a heads-up and encourages them to create more articles. Thanks again, Pete--Petebutt (talk) 18:54, 7 October 2014 (UTC)
