Editing Igor Sikorsky - Kiev/Kyiv[edit]

Hello. I represent Ukrainian-language section of Wikipedia. I would like to talk about translation of Kyiv city. "Kiev" - is a Russian translation, "Kyiv" - Ukrainian, as well as the official language in Ukraine is Ukrainian language, I think it would be appropriate to use the name "Kyiv". — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ukrainebestintheworld (talkcontribs) 18:13, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

The English-language Wikipedia uses the Common Name in English, not necessarily the local name or official name. This is why the article on that city is named Kiev, with alternate spellings and translations listed there. (Redirect pages exist for alternate spellings too.) No need to try and argue with me about it; it is not up to me or other single user. -Fnlayson (talk) 18:38, 6 February 2015 (UTC)
See Talk:Kiev/naming for further information on the Kiev/Kyiv naming issue. - BilCat (talk) 18:42, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

Rush FAR[edit]

I have nominated Rush (band) for a featured article review here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets featured article criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks. If substantial concerns are not addressed during the review period, the article will be moved to the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Delist" the article's featured status. The instructions for the review process are here. SandyGeorgia (Talk) 23:35, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

You're already posted about this on the talk page and template d it to start the FAR. Good day. -Fnlayson (talk) 23:59, 19 February 2015 (UTC)


"Partial revert, no reason to remove template field, only text after equals sign)" No prob. Thanks. That said, is there a standard unit cost used? as a former development type, we used a half dozen different costs, depending on contest, and problems with inflation (that often seems to be ignored here on wiki) are the least of it. A stripped, dry cost for a large production run can easily be a fith of a small production run for a ready-to-roll unit with spares and current worth of future maintenance costs rolled in.Anmccaff (talk) 16:00, 22 February 2015 (UTC)

Actual unit cost was not related to my edit. Books on military ground vehicles are the best guess I have at finding an accurate unit cost. -Fnlayson (talk) 20:22, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, I understand that you weren't writing about the actual unit cost, merely preserving a template place holder for when one more credible is found - which makes a good deal of sense. I was wondering if Wiki, or the part of Wiki that deals with military equipment, or military vehicles, or &cet, &cet, ad. naus. had any standard which cost to use, (and, parenthetically, on dating the info, so current value of money can be taken into account)?Anmccaff (talk) 20:36, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
  • With aircraft we list a cost and year of that cost. That stays away from estimates for inflation. -Fnlayson (talk) 20:43, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
  • It'd be nice to capture what kind of cost was listed; is there somewhere suitable to bring this up?Anmccaff (talk) 20:58, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
