Centurion tank references[edit]

Hello!

There is currently a mix-up in the references at Centurion tank. I saw you were adding to the references there, including the book Centurion 5 by M. Norman, which is involved. Please, check the article Talk page for details on the issue and see if you can help solve it. Thanks. — Marvin talk 02:36, 10 January 2013 (UTC)

Original language investigation reports[edit]

Hi Graeme! Let's take a look at this edit Normally non-English links are "inferior" to English links and are to be included, but in this case the Japanese report needs to be linked somewhere in this document. If you look at the English report, it clearly states that the Japanese report is the original, and if there is a conflict between the Japanese and English report, the Japanese report prevails. So both need to be linked WhisperToMe (talk) 16:31, 10 January 2013 (UTC)

Armour in Profile - page numbers.[edit]

Only a small thing, but the Profiles in my possession have numbered pages. In some cases, online versions that have been cropped for PDF have lost the number. That might explain the confusion. Hengistmate (talk) 15:34, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

That may well be it. Since I made that bold anouncement I have been thinking that a) I was working on what-I-think-I-know rather that what the actual case is and b) whether it would just be better to assume the page numbers run from 1 after the inside cover. The latter though would also probably be wrong because (for example) an online copy of AFV Weapons Profile No.40 US Armoured Cars runs from page 169 to page 188. Which implies it came from one of the compilations published. GraemeLeggett (talk) 19:04, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
If its of any interest, the aircraft Profiles are paginated with the front cover as Page 1.TheLongTone (talk) 23:38, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

Same with the armour. Inside front cover is p2, and so on.Hengistmate (talk) 10:34, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

Thanks, I'll work on that basis from now on. GraemeLeggett (talk) 12:29, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

Hitler and the Mosquito[edit]

Hi Graeme, it's possible that it had something to do with zig-zag, but without some clear source/evidence it is a ridiculous statement to make without adding a great deal of explanation. For example, the Supermarine factory at Southampton was targeted and destroyed during the B of B - do we also say that the Spitfire was targeted by Hitler?

Notification of discussion[edit]

A few months ago, you participated in a discussion on Wikipedia talk:Did you know about Gibraltar-related DYKs on the Main Page. I am proposing that the temporary restrictions on such DYKs, which were imposed in September 2012, should be lifted and have set out a case for doing so at Wikipedia talk:Did you know/Gibraltar-related DYKs. If you have a view on this, please comment at that page. Prioryman (talk) 21:59, 13 February 2013 (UTC)

Re:Aviator move[edit]

I have no problem whatsoever with the move back to aviator as long as the article is actually talking about aviators in general. But man, doesn't that look like an article about airplane pilots to you? The first two sentences in the article (even before my edits) made very clear that the two are not strictly synonyms! Let's talk this over at the talk page for the article. I'm certain you know a lot more on this matter than I do and I'm eager for you to clear up any misunderstandings I may have on this. Maybe a split is needed? Red Slash 21:26, 3 March 2013 (UTC)

County Class cruisers[edit]

Dear Graeme,

Thank you for your prompt response to my bracket note on HMS Norfolk, I added the original para some years ago connecting Hampshire, Devonshire, Kent and Fife to the Royal dockyards, and also observed that Antrim, Glamorgan and London were "Capital counties".

Norfolk was a previous County-class name of distinction, and with East Coast connections not yet commemorated (South had 3, West 2, Scotland and NI 1 each) Norfolk filled a geographical gap. But the suggestion that it was also a proxy "Dockyard" was a matter of discussion in 1975, when Ark visited Norfolk Va with Hampshire as escort. I could not prove this, but I hoped to draw out a challenge or a confirmation with my factual 'coincidental' observation.

I will pursue this notion with the NHB when next able to.

(Thanks also for your interventions on the 'Cruel Sea', which I have clarified in the 'fictional' listings after their reversion by 'Mervyn'. You may be able to find a more economical way of doing this, but as the Book and the Film are equally noteworthy I felt they both deserved a line, as 'Saltash' and 'Saltash Castle' are not the same ship types. It was to provide this clarity that I separated the 19th & 20th century fictional ships, and the films from the books).

P-61[edit]

Hi,

I see some time back you removed the Ta 154 from the "similar aircraft" part of the P-61 Black Widow Page. The reason you cited was that it was "single-seat, single-engine."

Surely you're confusing the Ta 154 with the Ta 152? I'd revert the edit myself, however the same edit also removed, correctly I believe, the dH Hornet. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 121.217.161.48 (talk) 12:19, 18 March 2013 (UTC)

German Wiki[edit]

I was attempting to resolve an issue with a bunch of English speakers arguing over the linguistic use of an English translation of a German name by citing the German page on that same issue which if I am not mistaken is edited by Germans who speak native German and can thus be considered a reliable source in relation to the German language if nothing else. the term "not entirely correct" is quite appropriate as though in contemporaneity German the English Name "King tiger" is an accepted part of the German language and shows up in any translator, at the time in question this term was stretching the language rules. However just as it is not entirely accurate it is not entirely inaccurate either, as the Germans did not call a bengal-tiger (the cat) by that name as the German word for Bengal is Bengal and is not representative of the German name in terms of imagery or bearing. the English word denotes a basic location of a majority of the animal in question, where as the German name denotes a cat of some superiority to the basic tiger which is closer to the meaning of and better represented by the historic mistranslation than the actual translation. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kyphen (talkcontribs) 19:20, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

May 2013[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Gustave Whitehead. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware, Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made; that is to say, editors are not automatically "entitled" to three reverts.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing.

Question about the Centurion[edit]

You recently added a passage to the Centurion article about some of the early prototypes. This concludes with a sentence about a version armed with a "77 mm" gun. The 17-pdr is, of course, 77 mm. So I'm wondering if this section is referring to the 17-pdr, or another gun entirely? Maury Markowitz (talk) 13:27, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

And why not…[edit]

I see on your user page that you hail from the Norwich area? How difficult would it be for you to meander over to the Cambridge area, specifically Earith? I'd desperate for a photo of the remains of the Tracked Hovercraft test line, and I suspect this may be of some interest to you as well. I'd do it myself, but there's this nasty Pond in the way… Maury Markowitz (talk) 13:36, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

Notwithstanding the header template I just added, it's not outside the realm of possibility and the sort of thing to do to take a break from sitting inside. I know people I visit occasionally in Cambridge so it's a case of remembering, then remembering also to take the scenic route and the camera. I'd need some co-ordinates and an idea of what sort of image you require (the bleak majesty of the fens or close ups of dilapidated concrete.) Alternatively I might be able to "subcontract" the job to them - he's quite technically minded and interested in regional history. GraemeLeggett (talk) 14:22, 18 May 2013 (UTC)
Helpfully, someone added the COORDs into the article header. However, the area is a bit fenced off, so I won't pretend that it will be straightforward. Images of the crumbling concrete would be ideal I think, albeit somewhat sad perhaps… Maury Markowitz (talk) 20:01, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

Wing configurations[edit]

Hi, Your undoing of my revision doesn't seem to make sense. "Cabane struts" had been part of the parasol definition for some time, and all I did was to add a wikilink. Also, I deleted an addition by SteelPillow who had put a comment in the wrong place. (In my view, his comment is wrongheaded anyway). So, you have deleted a wikilink and have restored a misplaced comment! SteelPillow has frequently been accused of sailing very close to WP:OWN, and it seems that he is doing it again. Please don't aid & abet him! Also, you write "doesn't need struts to be a parasol wing" ; but I thought that was the very definition of a parasol wing. Please advise! Arrivisto (talk) 17:14, 27 May 2013 (UTC)

You have restored a definition that says that a parasol is "mounted on the upper fuselage. " Ignoring that there is just one fuselage, and that there is no "upper fuselage", surely the point of a parasol wing is, as its name suggests, that it is like an umbrella from which the aircraft is suspended? Arrivisto (talk) 17:19, 27 May 2013 (UTC)

Parasol wing means above the fuselage, that can be by strut, pylon or pedestal. And it is mounted on the upper part of the fuselage - the "upper fuselage" - as opposed to mounted on any other part the aeroplane. Perhaps I should have shuffled the words a bit more but I felt you'd taken the definition in the wrong way by omitting other parasol designs that didn't use struts. On the other matter, if you think a user is going OWN, then you have options. GraemeLeggett (talk) 17:31, 27 May 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for this response. I shall revert, but shall add the "strut, pylon or pedestal" variants. Cheers. Arrivisto (talk) 17:39, 27 May 2013 (UTC)
Apologies for the recent confusion. I made an edit in the wrong place and you two have been trying to figure it out. It is now back the way I meant it. With regards to what is or is not a "high wing" I merely pointed out in this edit comment that we two had this conversation two years ago here, and asked what has changed? — Cheers, Steelpillow (Talk) 19:33, 27 May 2013 (UTC)

Talk:List_of_Russian_weaponry#Left-outs[edit]

Did you ever mention AfD-ing the articles listed there to any project? I was sifting through some pages including List of Russian weaponry, and saw some of those - I've dropped a question at WP:GUN regarding any special criteria regarding WP:N of firearms, but there's been no reply. I'm tempted to put all of them on AfD, but considering there are 20+ articles, I'm rather afraid of overwhelming the other poor folks out there. Ansh666 04:34, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

Or I could just PROD all 22 (or was it 23? don't remember) of them, I guess. What do you think? Ansh666 04:35, 14 June 2013 (UTC)
I thought I mentioned it on the Milhist project talkpage. Try prodding one or two of the most obviously poorly cited stubs. It might draw an editor out of the woodwork who knows the subject but who has overlooked the page on his watchlist. GraemeLeggett (talk) 05:56, 14 June 2013 (UTC)
Looked through the archive; you did indeed mention it (not sure why I didn't catch that the first time). The only response there was to ask about ru-wiki, but there don't seem to be pages linked and I don't know Russian either. I got a little trigger-happy (appropriately, perhaps) and impatiently prodded the articles without non-image sources: Shkval (rifle), Grad assault rifle, A2P assault rifle, AG-021, Kovonalov machine gun, and SVS-137, citing "Fails WP:GNG - no WP:RS." as the rationale - probably not the best reasoning, but more likely to get somebody to oppose, eh? We'll see what happens. Thanks, Ansh666 06:11, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

Early RN destroyers[edit]

Graeme, I note that you are working on the early RN destroyers that have recently been "boiler-plated" to death, and I salute you for it. I have some concerns that the data (esp dimensions & power plant) may be wrong, and I'm not even sure there was such a weapon as a "QF 12-pounder 8 cwt". Do you have a decent source for this sort of stuff? Until now I've been doing little more than reformatting and tidying up, I'm afraid. Shem (talk) 21:16, 24 June 2013 (UTC)

I'm just concentrating on formatting and tidying up at the moment. I also have my doubts since 8cwt to give a 12 pounder seems a tad light given the (admittedly long-barreled) 6 pdr Hotchkiss was also 8cwt. I had a quick look at navweapons and din't spot anything but I have the Conway book on reservation from the library so might actually be able to check something -or get more info on the boats -towards the end of the week. GraemeLeggett (talk) 21:25, 24 June 2013 (UTC)
I've got Friedman's book on naval weapons of WWI and I can confirm that there such a thing as a 8-cwt 12-pdr gun. It was mostly used on River-class DDs and subs. There was even a 4-cwt gun made in small numbers for boats and landing parties.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 21:59, 24 June 2013 (UTC)

All info handy. even if there's not enough for a separate article perhaps it could be added to the disambig at 12-pounder gun.GraemeLeggett (talk) 22:26, 24 June 2013 (UTC)
The piece seems to be strongly sourced too. I was impressed with the W/T section also. Irondome (talk) 23:21, 24 June 2013 (UTC)
Crap, I've already built a page for the naval gun using data from Friedman with the title of QF 12-pounder 8-cwt Mk I naval gun. I guess we'll have to merge them at some point.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 23:56, 24 June 2013 (UTC)
Looks like they were initially armed with the QF 12 pounder 12 cwt naval gun. The 6 pounder was replaced by the 12 pounder 8 cwt in 1906. The 12 pdr/12 cwt also seems to have be fitted to the earlier Daring-class destroyer (1893). Irondome (talk) 00:25, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

Type 35 torpedo boat[edit]

Hello Graeme
I notice you just added an infobox to this article; I was kind of in the middle of doing that, so it got lost as an edit conflict. Were you working on these articles too? If so I'll give it a miss for a while. Regards, Xyl 54 (talk) 22:34, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

It was on my watchlist but I'd forgotten about it until I noticed your activity. So I guess I kind of blundered in. I don't have access to the sources so I can't add more material just shift around what's already there. Makes more sense for me to give it a wide berth for a while more.GraemeLeggett (talk) 22:43, 28 June 2013 (UTC)
No worries; I probably should have put a construction tag on it (and I was having all kinds of trouble with the infobox, which slowed me down) I was mainly trying to sort out the German torpedo boats of World War II page (I flagged it on the talk page, here. Xyl 54 (talk) 23:05, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

Thanks, many thanks[edit]

Hi, Graeme
Your banner at the top of this page could very well describe me. When I saw what had been added to History of the Swiss Air Force yesterday I have to confess to a moment of being overwhelmed. The best I could think of to correct it, after perusing the checklist "read before delisting from GA status", was to make a sister article out of the material. I left a discussion on the talk page asking for assistance, and either in response or by coincidence you came to the rescue. I still feel documentation is necessary, so perhaps the well-meaning editor, who I think may be a young Swiss English-speaker (has no talk page), may be prompted to either provide the documentation or discuss it. In any case, my most sincere thanks for taking on the task. (I have a deep aversion to edit wars.) John/aka--Reedmalloy (talk) 14:44, 5 July 2013 (UTC)

List of aircraft accidents and incidents resulting in at least 50 fatalities[edit]

Hi GraemeLeggett- You've made a few non-constructive edits which undermine the consistency of various data columns. I thought I would drop you a note about this in an attempt to maintain Wikipedia:Civility. Thanks.--Godot13 (talk) 22:46, 5 July 2013 (UTC)

  • Thanks for your recent edits. I noticed you removed the process for incident selection. Would you be okay with that material in a note versus fully removed. I think that some people may wonder how the list was constructed... --Godot13 (talk) 18:26, 6 July 2013 (UTC)
My view is that the route by which the incidents were found is not necessary to the article in any form - it could have been by finding a list on the internet, by looking through all the articles in en.wikipedia, or finding a big book in the library - or all three. Wikipedia covers the facts of a topic not how they were first marshalled on the page. It might have had some value as a hidden note to editor if it was an article in the process of being developed but as the article sprang into existence more or less completely formed I don't see the point. GraemeLeggett (talk) 19:09, 6 July 2013 (UTC)
    • Not sure I fully understand the completely formed reference... As I posted on the list talk page, I attempted to participate in redesigning the death toll list and even went so far as to actually create a draft of the entire list just to be able to demonstrate how it could look. There was basically no interest. I felt like I reached out to collaborate. So I moved on and did my own project.--Godot13 (talk) 02:22, 7 July 2013 (UTC)

List size[edit]

I saw your recent comment at AfD about size. I would be happy to work with you to bring the size down without a significant reduction of content. Could you tell me what you had in mind? Thanks-Godot13 (talk) 23:53, 7 July 2013 (UTC)

eg at the moment for dates <span style="display:none">2001-09-11</span>11 Sep 2001 is used.
but 11 Sep 2001 displays the same and sorts without problems. That would be a saving of 43 characters for that line, for 200 entries 8000-9000 characters. GraemeLeggett (talk) 05:55, 8 July 2013 (UTC)
Wow... I'm very surprised (I just tested in my sandbox). It shouldn't work but it does... I expected that it would sort by the day of the month numerically which is why I used the hidden key feature. I'll go through tomorrow (well, later today... it's 2:15am here) and make the manual changes. Great catch!--Godot13 (talk) 06:19, 8 July 2013 (UTC)
Well, I had to give it a shot, so I reworked the whole list and it seems to be sort the way I had feared... But I'm a bit bleary-eyed and I could have messed something up or missed something.

Template:Infobox military installation coords question[edit]

Good Evening

Where did the coordinates code come from?

Was it the airport infobox or the military structure infobox or somewhere else?

Gavbadger (talk) 22:34, 12 July 2013 (UTC)

Short on battery, so must be brief. I think it started with both sets of code and then I trimmed off what I thought was superfluous. The current template is quite compact. The airport infbox code is quite involved with more (duplication or alternatives?) parameters. GraemeLeggett (talk) 06:01, 13 July 2013 (UTC)

Submarines of World War II Specifications (moved from user page to talk)[edit]

Thank you for adding the British T-Class. I'm looking to get as many submarines in the list that had an impact during the War. The table formatting was a bit off so I had to readd your entry. Also, I'm trying to standardize the units in each column to save display space; hence, the individual cells would not have different units than the column header. Unfortunately, not all reference sources distinguish between tons, long tons, and metric tons.

One question, where did you get the range for the T-Class as 11,000 nm? My source states it at 8,000 so I changed it to that. But if you have another source you can cite, please feel free to change it back.

Orion-class battleship[edit]

Graeme wouldn't it be clearer to simply delete any reference to horizontal or vertical when talking about armour thickness? Yes belt armour thickness is in the horizontal plane but the armour plate is oriented vertically, which is how Naval Architects express it. For instance David K. Brown in all his books, Jane's Fighting Ships, Siegfried Breyer, and Ray Burt. It should be obvious to any reader of Wiki naval articles how belt and deck armour is oriented and what thickness means.The Dart (talk) 17:45, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

The article is talking to the average reader, not a naval architect. By all means try a different phrasing.GraemeLeggett (talk) 21:13, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

Concept?[edit]

Hi.

Can we cross reference "concept" with another sources because it introduces an inaccuracy.

a) God is not a concept to the BKs, it is a being; and b) Liz Hodgkinson is not at authority on Judaism, Islam or even religious matters in the slightest. She's a tabloid journalists and then part-time adherent who wrote for papers like The Sun in the UK.

It's part of the BKs mission to introduce the idea that their god is Jahweh, Allah etc and that is what she is suggesting.

I suspect Jews and Muslims do not agree with the BKs that their god is the same spirit entering the BKs' spirit mediums. Jewish and Islamic concepts of God are indeed very different to the BKs'. This is why I removed it. It's not necessary to be as slavish to sources as to introduce inaccuracies.

I suppose you could put "the BKs claim their god is ..." etc. How does that work for you?

Thanks. --Januarythe18th (talk) 16:09, 5 October 2013 (UTC)

You tell me, I'm working from the source given. WP:Verifiability and all that. Conversely atheists probably belive that - at best - all religions gods are concepts and nothing more. GraemeLeggett (talk) 16:22, 5 October 2013 (UTC)
It's a useful discussion. I've just learned that there is an entire series of pages such as, e.g. Islamic concept of God, God in Judaism, God in Christianity, and so if the BKs want a separate page for, e.g. Brahma Kumari concept of God, they could have one. It might be good to document how their concept of god has evolved from when they thought their founder was god incarnate to the point now where they believe god possessed him and now possesses another medium within the religion called Gulzar.
A sort of Indian or Sindhi J. Z. Knight. It might be best to combine a couple of sources to get the best result. For clarification, you could also ask the BKs whether god is a sort of universal concept for them, or a person in the form of a spirit being who enters the bodies of others and takes them over to speak and interact.
If you look here, [2] there is a video of the old Sindhi medium they believe is possessed by God (Allah) pulling up a flag. She is second from the left. Or in this one, [3], where they believe the little one, who looks a bit like E.T., is feeding God who has again possessed the body of bigger old lady sitting in centre.
The word they use, Bapdada, means the combination of God and the spirit of their deceased millionaire founder, Lekhraj Kirpalani, who now both possess the spirit medium together at once. Basically, they believe that God comes down to earth and speaks to them exclusive a dozen or so times a year as mass seances at the headquarters. The rest of the time, their spirit mediums go off to another realm to speak to them in person.
Or this is God cutting his birthday cake [4]. I think you see how different a "concept" it is from Allah or Jahweh. --Januarythe18th (talk) 17:32, 5 October 2013 (UTC)
I suggest this discussion should be carried out on the talkpage for the article itself. I doubt a sub-page is required - scholars have been discussing the Christian god for about 2000 years so there's more content compared to a 70 year old religion and if the concept needs more than a paragraph to explain then it's probably more detail than necessary. GraemeLeggett (talk) 17:59, 5 October 2013 (UTC)
Understood. It's just such a blizzard of other information, I'd prefer to make my informed asides somewhere quieter.
Professionally or academically, one has a responsibility to be accurate and I find it very, very difficult to believe Muslims, Jews or Christians are boing to believe the BK god - as you see performing at the BKs' headquarters - is the "same concept" as their god. I think their far more likely to think it is some Satanic influence, an "angel of light" some at the End Times to deceive the faithful and so on.
Again, it is the BKs who want it to be seen as the same concept, and that is what is going on through all the BK generated resources. It's not what is, but rather what they want people to think or believe.
For the record, according to the BKs, now that you have been introduced their god you have benefited in some way and come the End of the World or Destruction, you will remember this introduction and "gain some inheritance" from him. That is to say, you will be born in Heaven on Earth even if only for a life or two. However, may be if you help the BKs you might gain more "inheritance" from their god and either spend longer in Heaven on Earth or have a higher status here. They say it is like paradise except they have nuclear powered mind controlled flying machines and everyone lives in houses made of gold and jewels.
Yes, I know that sounds bonkers. No, I do not believe it. Yes, that really is what they teach [5]. --Januarythe18th (talk) 12:17, 6 October 2013 (UTC)

Nelson-class Battleships[edit]

Hi Graeme, someone else added an incorrect reference to the section on service life. They attributed the statement to D.K.

Samson: Bizarre coincidence[edit]

No coincidence. You cast a long shadow. I saw you'd made the correction, and I thought "I've seen the flight mentioned in another article, I ought to check if it's correct." It was so I then thought that as I had it in front of me uncited and you'd just given a reference for it, I could use the same reference and so I did. GraemeLeggett (talk) 22:32, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
Ah, should have thought of that! Infuriatingly, the FAA museum website doesn't mention the date: the Fleet Air Arm Officer's association website says 2 May. Which is at least a Thursday. The Putnam book on British naval aircraft says the 9th, but says Arthur Longmore was the pilot.....TheLongTone (talk) 10:01, 4 November 2013 (UTC)

Its Template:Infobox military installation/sandbox again[edit]

Good Morning

I was wondering if you could take a quick look at Template:Infobox military installation/sandbox please and see where the mysterious "-" on the testcases has appeared from.

I've had a good look and can't find an odd one out but you understand wikicode more than me.

Thanks. Gavbadger (talk) 01:19, 8 November 2013 (UTC)

I wondered at first if it was the code to layout the tests cases side by side - but it doesn't seem to be there. It's definitely in the sandbox version as a quick preview with the template showed me. Nothing springs out looking at the code, so I would try the empirical approach: try removing, testing and then replacing each instance of "-" one at a time working through the sandbox version from top to bottom and see if it solves, or breaks the template further.

Independent opinion[edit]

Hi Greame, I hope the real world stress will end soon! I was putting some content into the BK article about Meditation retreats and was thinking that I can make each of the locations mentioned in the introduction into a hyperlink where there is a webpage for those particular retreat centres - the pages usually give nice photo's and info about the places. Is it fine to do that?

I was also wondering, that poor quality edit I made in the controversies section - if those comments instead link to the instance of the conduct referred to on the webpage in question, is that allowed? Or is that a primary source? Thank you Danh108 (talk) 15:27, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

I'm not a fan of inline hyperlinks, and you want to avoid coming over as promotional. Is there a link that lists the centres? - that could be used as a reference. Alternatively a general link in the External links might pass. I'll think on the other. GraemeLeggett (talk) 17:01, 26 November 2013 (UTC)
Thank you Greame. I found one link that lists about 8 of the retreat centres (clearly not kept very up to date!). Happy to delete the hyper links and settle for that.

Harris and Panacea targets[edit]

Harris referred to specific targets contemptuously as "panacea targets". This article infers that Harris was little more than a homicidal maniac who killed 50,00 aircrew and hundreds of thousands of civilians while accomplishing little militarily. Correct ? In modern terms this article presents evidence for just/intelligent war vs unjust/brainless war. Rcbutcher (talk) 09:08, 10 January 2014 (UTC)

A panacea is a solution to all things. Is it the case that Harris did not believe that attacking a single target would be the answer to everything as the supporters of the idea claimed? Are their sources that interpret Harris' comment? GraemeLeggett (talk) 11:58, 10 January 2014 (UTC)
I think my criticism of Harris was very excessive. But yes, Harris appears to use the term Panacea to criticise the idea that attacking single particular aspects of Germany's infrastructure could be decisive in winning the war. He appears to have been wrong in hindsight - but it may not have been so clearcut at time, as he implies. I raised this because a major quality discussion of the issue would be useful here - but it is beyond my knowledge to contribute to. Rcbutcher (talk) 11:05, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

VP-16 and DANAS[edit]

Chapters in DANAS are presented in sections in the online PDF version. Chapter 3 has 13 different sections. IMHO, your recent changes to the reference citation have made things less clear and less useful -- it now appears that the link is to Chapter 3, when it is really to a specific section of Chapter 3.

List of Russian weaponry[edit]

I noticed that you just made some edits on the List of Russian weaponry. I am in the process of attempting to clean-up that page. I have just added the following to the talk page..."I recommend that we remove all of the experimental weapons from this article as none of them have gone into production and are unlikely to be encountered outside of a museum. As such they are not particularly notable. Also, while some of these prototypes lead to notable weapons, such as the AK-47, the prototypes themselves are not notable individually." I would appreciate some feedback if you would like to comment on the talk page. Thank You.--RAF910 (talk) 19:02, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

WP:RS on Whoniverse[edit]

Congratulations for the good work! Hopefully the article can now be built up properly, without all the OR and RS.

Terrapin Movie, Aquacheetah[edit]

No idea. Until I saw that movie I'd never even heard of the Aquacheeta and Google found nothing. The commentator described it as an experimental vehicle, so I suspect you're seeing the one and only example ever built. Possibly it was a speculative exercise from some company hoping for a nice fat contract.

From the movie it seems to have performed even worse on land than the Ford GPA, which I read was a complete dog's breakfast. So I guess it's deservedly obscure, even if does look nifty.

List of large aircraft[edit]

Hi, I notice that you deleted the Douglas X-3 Stilletto from the List of large aircraft. It meets the current inclusion criterion, so may I ask why you deleted it? (It wasn't because the nose of the X-3 is too "pointy" is it? Face-wink.svg )— Cheers, Steelpillow (Talk) 09:34, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

It is a rather pointed design. But I did think the Valkyrie fitted in as an example of trying to achieve a very high speed through (or despite) a large airframe. GraemeLeggett (talk) 11:14, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

Arnhem[edit]

Steve Ranger just wamts to revert whatever I edit on this article. The article is badly constructed to say the least. He has insulted me with the whole gamut - vandalism, ridiculous edits etc. I had the honor to meet Cornelius Ryan (a long while ago), who looked into these events. He was most critical of the slurs made against a number of fine soldiers who fought in these and related actions, especially those against the Poles, who he considered were "sacrificed". I see this critique has ventured into these articles. It is not encyclopedic material or even history. I would call it "shifting the blame". Wallie (talk) 20:34, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for your edits and suggestions on Military production during World War II. I will clean it up. However, a number of your changes were in error. I've reinstated some.

They also allow for very easy contrast and comparison between axis and allied. cheers --Brukner (talk) 23:20, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

Boeing Honeywell Uninterruptible Autopilot[edit]

Hi Graeme, thanks for your input into the page. Would you be able to facilitate the following change to the introductory text as I cannot change it myself? Please replace: "The Boeing Honeywell Uninterruptible Autopilot is a type of autopilot meant to defeat attempts at skyjacking."

With: "The Boeing Honeywell Uninterruptible Autopilot is a set of sub-routines in post-1995 Boeing aircraft (termed the Unauthorized Flight Detector), aimed at defeating attempts at skyjacking by removing electrical power from the flight deck, and irrevocably passing pilot authority to the autopilot and navigational computer for an automated landing at a safe airfield which can deal effectively with the incident."

Much appreciated.John (Noordinaryjohn) (talk) 11:13, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

What impedes you from changing it? Is there a partial protection on the article?GraemeLeggett (talk) 12:03, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
Heh, my mistake, I can! A matter of clicking the right edit button ;-) w.r.t. Joe Vialls' citation, Joe and I both knew the US Colonel who told his sister (Ms Marcey) in 1989 (running the then US Marshall's Prisoner Transportation Service) how to drone ConAir flights to make them safer. She worked with relevant parties to develop BHUAP in 4 x 727's when she formed JPATS in 1995. Inside info is hard to cite, such as the Lufthansa 'rumor'. Happy to take it out as there are only a few of us who know it wasn't just a rumor. What do you suggest?John (Noordinaryjohn) (talk) 16:43, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

Indeed, we do[edit]

"are we suggesting Hanbury mistaken"

Yes. Given the timing, it is extremely unlikely a Hart was used for AI or ASV. The fight throughout development was to get higher-performance aircraft in order to provide realistic speeds and intercept profiles, something the Hart could not do. As a radar carrying aircraft the Hart was lacking any sort of space for the radar, had no suitable power source (only one PTO) and had open cockpits. It's possible one might use a Hart as a radar target, but even in this role it seems highly unlikely, it certainly wouldn't have been able to do much as a target for a Battle. Further, the list of aircraft is repeatedly provided in many sources, and none of them mention a Hart. Maury Markowitz (talk) 13:39, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

So why mention it at all in text. Wikipedia NPOV only needs to give minority viewpoints if significant and Hart whether used or not isn't of much significance to Al development. Sorry bit terse but editing from mobile phone. GraemeLeggett (talk) 17:53, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

Bombs away[edit]

I seem to rember an exchange regarding the HP O/100 bombload questioning whether it was intended to carry a number 100lb or 112lb bombs...I was visiting the RAF museum yesterday & they have in display bombs of that vintage of both weights. Pure OR so not worth a bean, but I thought you might be amused.TheLongTone (talk) 12:18, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

So I guess that possibly makes sources on the matter both right, and incomplete. I take it that was Hendon, rather than Cosford? GraemeLeggett (talk) 12:34, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
Yes, Hendon - I've never been to Cosford. On the list, since they have a lot of interesting machines.TheLongTone (talk) 16:33, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
I went to Cosford about 2-3 years ago, and once about 10 years before then. (curiously about the same interval between my two most recent visits to Bovington). It's good for shiny British aircraft from the "white heat of technology". Hendon, I've haven't been to in the last 30+ years - I should visit again. GraemeLeggett (talk) 17:29, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi Graeme, could you have a look at Template:Rocketspecs for me please? I think you can see what I'm trying to do but I'm making mistakes.

WP:GNG and China's Wings[edit]

Hi! Regarding China's Wings I have two book review sources for this article. WP:GNG states: "If a topic has received significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject, it is presumed to be suitable for a stand-alone article or list." - There is significant coverage in two (multiple) articles so therefore it meets GNG.

I have not added as much content as I wanted from one source, because one of the pages of the document is missing (I need the other page to see more comments from the reviewer). WhisperToMe (talk) 21:58, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

I've found even more sources. Hopefully this should resolve any notability concerns :) WhisperToMe (talk) 23:14, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
Do you mind if I remove the notability template? I think the # of sources establishes the book's notability WhisperToMe (talk) 10:37, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
It was removed by another editor. Anyway, thank you so much for helping with the article :) WhisperToMe (talk) 11:54, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

Coal Hill School AfD[edit]

Hi, Graeme. Over at the AfD for Coal Hill School, you said that to determine whether the Kim Newman source constituted "significant coverage" per WP:GNG, it would depend on whether the quoted material was all that he had to say on the matter. I've now posted the full quotation from Newman at Talk:Coal Hill School#Kim Newman quotation, and thought you might be interested in seeing it, to determine whether it reaches the standard of "significant coverage". —Josiah Rowe (talkcontribs) 15:53, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for your clarification on the TOGII article - I checked The Tank Museums page and "Tank, Heavy, TOG II*" is given as its precise name.--Devon's King Tiger (talk) 13:40, 10 October 2014 (UTC)

Bovington does like to be precise. Have you seen TOG II in person? It's tucked up a corner now next to where the school visits etc have their packed lunches so it's not so easy to appreciate or study. GraemeLeggett (talk) 17:29, 10 October 2014 (UTC)
They're a fantastic museum, that's for sure. Yes, I have had the pleasure of seeing the MIGHTY TOG II in person! But you reminded me of how horrifyingly poor my photography was on the day I visited the museum - my photo of TOG was terrible. And somehow I didn't get a photo of Tiger 131, yet I know I saw it there (including the damaged turret ring). When I was over at Bovington, a group of school kids all dressed up in 1940's outfits were around...well, I need to go back! --Devon's King Tiger (talk) 13:02, 13 October 2014 (UTC)
I was there and took a bad photo of TOG (a bit blurry, probably the poor light at the time), and forgot to photograph 131. I found it difficult to take it all, pick things that might come out interesting and handle my 9-year old at same time. GraemeLeggett (talk) 15:40, 13 October 2014 (UTC)

Blandford Camp[edit]

Good Afternoon

Don't suppose you could look at the Blandford Camp article and see what causing the weird co-ords problem?

It originally had Infobox Military structure with the same problem but I changed the infobox on the article to Infobox Military installation and the problem is still there.

It's the only article I've found that has the problem.

14:35, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

I don't see anything out of place viewing on my computer, can you be more specific as to what you see? GraemeLeggett (talk) 18:48, 27 October 2014 (UTC)
It doesn't matter now, someone changed Template:Coordinates or something very similar and damaged the code so it affected all of the infobox's which had a coordinates field. There was a big discussion at the village pump which I completely forgot to check first. Sorry. Gavbadger (talk) 18:58, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

M4 Sherman, revert warring[edit]

Hello,

The current article M4 Sherman have been recently edit warring by LeuCeaMia. - This is against three-revert rule (3RR). He trying to overlap the valid statement by the context, which is 1) not necessary nor essential and 2) with a reasonable reading comprehension, the "superiority" leads to the long-barrelled gun as Andy Dingley recognized correctly. Could you please help to fullfil a report?

Other articles been also under edit warring by LeuCeaMia, see contributions.

Sincere regards, Benjamin (talk) 14:17, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

I've started the talk discussion to explain the shortcommings of the Allied opponents against the "Mark IV Special", since LeuCeaMia keep edit warring. Sincere regards, Benjamin (talk) 15:51, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
I'm done, LeuCeaMia keep violating the three-revert rule (3RR) and the Wiki netiquette of co-educational behavior. I've invited LeuCeaMia into talk to discuss the issue, he/she keep edit warring, without reasoning, timestamp: 14:56, 10 November 2014‎. Benjamin (talk) 16:15, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
If they don't want to engage, there's not a great deal to be done to bring them to the table. Thought there is dispute resolution GraemeLeggett (talk) 18:20, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

Your recent edits of page <wiki/No._255_Squadron_RAF>[edit]

Please would you visit the Talk page relating to No.255 Squadron and there (a) constructively join in the discussion about "splitting", also (b) set out your connection (if any) with the squadron. The result of a lot of difficult research work done by descendants of squadron members has, within the last few days, been deleted without prior discussion. 255 Historian (talk) 13:46, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

ADDED: Please contact me privately, preferably by e-mail, using the contact information for No.255 Squadron in No._255_Squadron_RAF#External_links item "Squadron history (and more) on RafWeb". 255 Historian (talk) 18:35, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

As its about a Wikipedia article, I'd prefer to keep all discussions with editors regarding it on Wikipedia pages (whether that be the article talkpage, or related projects such as the Aviation wikiproject or Military history wikiproject). GraemeLeggett (talk) 18:46, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

Boeing 797 hoax reg[edit]

Hi GraemeLeggett

Please visit the talk page of Boeing X-48 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Boeing_X-48) to see the notability of the Boeing 797 hoax.

Wikipedia is a very important source of information for people, today. Removing tiny bits of information does not help educate people. At the time of creating that section, I visited wikipedia searching for info on the Boeing 797. failing to find anything, i resorted to the rest of the net. at the end, i managed to collate quite a bit of info including the exact issue from which the image was sourced.

the whole point of wikipedia is to educate people, not to hide info. for your info, this design is based on BWB-450 on which the X-48A and subsequently B & C are based. in short, this render was inspired from an actual physical concept model preceding X-48. also fyi, the BWB-450 was supposed to be a 450 passenger aircraft BWB concept but when the design was carried over to X-48, it was decided to scrap the passenger part for the time being with more focus on military applications like air-refuelling.

officially, there is no talk by boeing or nasa to bring in such planes to the commercial sector in the imminent future. and this is where the 797 hoax has to be mentioned and cleared.

I am open to further discussion but as a hoax, it is still quite notable. I would like to revert this by the weekend, if possible.

Perhaps we can arrange a discussion on the Talk page of Blended Wing Body to reword the info a bit - however, it is important that people are educated about this hoax. We want wikipedia to be a source of reliable knowledge, right? If nothing is available here, the average person will resort to a questionable blog and think the info there is correct.

Till the date a Boeing 797 is truly released & a wiki page created for it, this section needs a home under the Blended Wing Body page. --Krishvanth (talk) 01:41, 18 November 2014 (UTC)
