Expansion of articles relating to the Sydney-Kormoran battle[edit]

As a major contributor to Battle between HMAS Sydney and German auxiliary cruiser Kormoran, HMAS Sydney (D48) (formerly "HMAS Sydney (1934)") and German auxiliary cruiser Kormoran, I am asking for your opinion on my expansion/improvement of these three articles. Before I start the climb towards a possible FA nomination, I was hoping you could have a look at the articles' current conditions and make a few observations (either here, on my talk page, or on the relevant article's talk page).

For transperancy, this expansion was prompted by a desire to get the articles looking solid before they appeared in "On This Day" (the entry for the battle was scrubbed a couple of days ago in favour of another WWII event). The article for Kormoran is not yet complete: content relating to the post-war searches and rediscovery needs to be expanded and cited, and will be updated in the next few days. -- saberwyn 01:58, 19 November 2009 (UTC)

Association football consensus[edit]

A user User:timsdad is claiming the term football (soccer) has been changed to association football per consensus reached at the Wikiproject. I have heardx nothing of this and as far as I know, it's hasn't. He has already started renaming it to association football on the pages, Perth Oval, Westpac Stadium, Lang Park, Hindmarsh Stadium, Central Coast Stadium and Expansion of the A-League. He claims in some that once it is referred to what type of football it is, you can simply call it football later on. While I feel that is ok for soccer articles, the ones he edited in question also use the other football codes (rugby league, aussie rules, etc) and calling soccer, football is just confusing. What is your thoughts? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 60.224.3.243 (talk) 04:54, 5 December 2009 (UTC)

RAF squadrons[edit]

Indeed, yes!

I think - I'm not sure I ever got around to doing what I meant with that list - the idea was they should all at least have redirects from No. ### RAF, as well as being at the formal title of No. ### R(C/A/NZ)AF. I suppose I should get around to cleaning up the disambig pages and redirects and so on... Shimgray | talk | 14:13, 28 February 2010 (UTC)

Swan River Colony[edit]

G'day mate,

Actually I think it probably had different meaning depending on context. Back "home", if you referred to the Swan River Colony, you meant Western Australia. But over here, "Swan River Colony" was a way of referring specifically to the colony on the Swan River, as opposed to the daughter colonies at King George Sound, on the Vasse, on the Blackwood, at Champion Bay, etc. Also, we need to bear in mind that the initial annexation was much less than the western third. I think the annexation wasn't expanded until control of King George Sound was transferred.

Romanization for words of English origin[edit]

On the MOS:JP talk page, a discussion has been started about including or not including romanizations for words of English origin, such as Fainaru Fantajī in Final Fantasy (ファイナルファンタジー Fainaru Fantajī?) (for the sake of simplicity, I called this case "words of English origin", more information on semantics here).

Over the course of a month, it has become apparent that both the parties proposing to include or not include those romanizations cannot be convinced by the arguments or guidelines brought up by the other side. Therefore, a compromise is trying to be found that will satisfy both parties. One suggestion on a compromise has been given already, but it has not found unanimous agreement, so additional compromises are encouraged to be suggested.

One universally accepted point was to bring more users from the affected projects in to help achieve consensus, and you were one of those selected in the process.

What this invitation is:

  • You should give feedback on the first suggested compromise and are highly encouraged to provide other solutions.

What this invitation is not:

  • This is not a vote on including or excluding such romanizations.
  • This is not a vote on compromises either.

It would be highly appreciated if you came over to the MOS:JP talk page and helped find a solution. Thank you in advance. Prime Blue (talk) 11:30, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

Luftstreitkräfte[edit]

I put an explanation for my changes on the discussion page for this one. My point was that word for word translations are not necessarily any more "accurate" than sensible ones that take cognisance of ordinary English word order. Turning the lead for this (very poor) article into a largely irrelevant quibble over English as opposed to German word order seems to be a great shame. (Repeating this on the discussion page if you want to answer it there - otherwise I will revert again after a day or two. --Soundofmusicals (talk) 03:08, 27 September 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Image talk:POWexecution.jpg[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

Thank you for experimenting with Wikipedia. Your test worked, and the page that you created has been or soon will be deleted. Please use the sandbox for any other tests you want to do. Take a look at the welcome page if you would like to learn more about contributing to our encyclopedia.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} 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 hang-on 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. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Mhiji 20:24, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

Western New Guinea Campaign 2[edit]

As the American campaign in Papua took place in the Netherlands New Guinea shouldn't the name be the Netherlands New Guinea Campaign?. BTW, I was not aware of Australia being a Belligerent in the campaign; as far as I knew Australia only dealt with the two territories it had administrated since WW-i, German colony of "New Guinea" and British colony of "Papua".Daeron (talk) 23:14, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

Sexual penetration redirect[edit]

Hello, Grantg65. While editing the Sex positions article, I noticed that you redirected Sexual penetration away from Sexual intercourse. I read your edit summary as to why, and saw your legal charge definition, but I point out that forced sexual penetration (rape) is still sexual intercourse. Rape is also addressed in the Sexual intercourse article. Therefore, it makes more sense to me that Sexual penetration redirect there (to that article). Flyer22 (talk) 02:48, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Operation Matterhorn (1963)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Operation Matterhorn (1963) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

A search for references found no published (gBook) support for this article. Fails WP:V and WP:N

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Premier League sponsors[edit]

I notice this edit has now been reverted by User:MickMacNee and I can't say I disagree with it. I think all of the alphabet soup that you used as justification do not back up your edit. I hardly think that simply listing the sponsors in an objective and neutral tone is what SOAP/ARTSPAM/RECENT had in mind, it is not an advertisement, puff piece or PR coup, it is a simple referenced list. I can't see the justification for it being "recentist": it listed in plain terms every sponsor in the Premier League's history. For me it is common sense to have them listed and not the other way around. If you still feel strongly about it then perhaps you could further explain your reasoning on the talkpage?

File:Operationcartwheel.jpg needs authorship information.[edit]

Dear uploader:

The media file you uploaded as File:Operationcartwheel.jpg appears to be missing information as to its authorship (and or source), or if you did provide such information, it is confusing for others trying to make use of the image.

It would be appreciated if you would consider updating the file description page, to make the authorship of the media clearer.

Although some images may not need author information in obvious cases, (such where an applicable source is provided),authorship information aids users of the image, and helps ensure that appropriate credit is given (a requirement of some licenses).

If you created this media yourself, please consider explicitly including your user name, for which:{{subst:usernameexpand|Grant65}} will produce an appropriate expansion,

or the {{own}} template..

PK-AFV[edit]

Hello Grant. I have been looking at the excellent article PK-AFV which you created in 2006. This appears to be the only Wiki article whose title is simply the civil registration of the aircraft.

The title is not at all informative, and it appears to be inconsistent with other aviation articles. I am inclined to see the article moved to a better title. What do you think of this suggestion?

Looking at Category:Airliner Shootdowns I think the following would be suitable:

1942 Douglas DC-3 shootdown

If you agree to a name change, do you have a preference? Happy editing. Dolphin (t) 06:25, 4 July 2011 (UTC)

MSU Interview[edit]

Dear Grant65,

My name is Jonathan Obar user:Jaobar, I'm a professor in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences at Michigan State University and a Teaching Fellow with the Wikimedia Foundation's Education Program. This semester I've been running a little experiment at MSU, a class where we teach students about becoming Wikipedia administrators. Not a lot is known about your community, and our students (who are fascinated by wiki-culture by the way!) want to learn how you do what you do, and why you do it. A while back I proposed this idea (the class) to the communityHERE, where it was met mainly with positive feedback. Anyhow, I'd like my students to speak with a few administrators to get a sense of admin experiences, training, motivations, likes, dislikes, etc. We were wondering if you'd be interested in speaking with one of our students.


So a few things about the interviews:

  • Interviews will last between 15 and 30 minutes.
  • Interviews can be conducted over skype (preferred), IRC or email. (You choose the form of communication based upon your comfort level, time, etc.)
  • All interviews will be completely anonymous, meaning that you (real name and/or pseudonym) will never be identified in any of our materials, unless you give the interviewer permission to do so.
  • All interviews will be completely voluntary. You are under no obligation to say yes to an interview, and can say no and stop or leave the interview at any time.
  • The entire interview process is being overseen by MSU's institutional review board (ethics review). This means that all questions have been approved by the university and all students have been trained how to conduct interviews ethically and properly.


Bottom line is that we really need your help, and would really appreciate the opportunity to speak with you. If interested, please send me an email at obar@msu.edu (to maintain anonymity) and I will add your name to my offline contact list. If you feel comfortable doing so, you can post your nameHERE instead.

If you have questions or concerns at any time, feel free to email me at obar@msu.edu. I will be more than happy to speak with you.

Thanks in advance for your help. We have a lot to learn from you.

Sincerely,

Jonathan Obar --Jaobar (talk) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Chlopeck (talkcontribs) 23:41, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

AfD and PROD notifications[edit]

Hi Grant65,

Back in November, you got either an AfD or PROD notification, which was part of the template testing project's experiments. If you could go here and leave us some feedback about what you think about the new versions of the templates we tested (there are links to the templates), that would be very useful. (You can also email me at mpinchuk@wikimedia.org if you want.) Thanks! Maryana (WMF) (talk) 18:44, 17 February 2012 (UTC)

Claude Choules[edit]

Hello Grant65. I'm concerned by this edit to Claude Choules by the 124 IP [[1]] which wholesale replaces citations from the 2009 edition of his autobiography to the 2010 edition (but uses the same page numbers). If the 2010 edition is indeed different to the 2009 edition (as he/she has asserted on my talk page) what guarantee is there that these new citations are correct? You seem knowledgeable on the subject given your previous edits to the article - just wondering if you have these books? If so would it be possible to check the citations changed by this edit to confirm they are correct? I don't own either so I can't but I'm dubious. Thanks in advance.

Problem with your signature, and how to fix it[edit]

Hi, I just wanted to inform you that your signature may not work properly in templates, and may actually break them.

Notice that nothing displays after the start of your signature. To fix your signature in your Preferences, please replace the "|" between your user link and your talk link with "|" (including the semicolon). It will display exactly the same, and it will work in templates, as it does after I fixed it in the DYK nomination template. MANdARAX  XAЯAbИAM 19:37, 30 September 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for attempting to do it the correct way, but you should only replace a "|" with "|" if it's one that you want displayed, and not those which are used to pipe. If you want your signature to appear exactly as it did before, you'd use:

[[User:Grant65|<span style="color:black">Grant</span>]] &#124; [[User talk:Grant65|<span style="color:black">Talk</span>]]

Of course, if you just want it without the visible "|" as you did in the first part of the edit which I just linked to, that's certainly fine too. MANdARAX  XAЯAbИAM 07:34, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

Reference missing on Brazilian Air Force from back in July.[edit]

Hi Grant65,

I was looking into a reference error on this article, and as far as I can tell, it is one you introduced. It seems to be in this edit [2]. As far as I can tell, you added a lot of material, but one sentence you added included a ref tag with the name "uboatnet", but didn't provide the actual content of that reference. I also did not notice a similar reference name...

The sentence reads: Two Brazilian aircraft, a PBY Catalina and a Lockheed Hudson, and an American PBM Mariner attacked the U-boat.

If by any chance, you can remember where you got the material, can you please flesh out or otherwise fix the reference?

Many thanks, --Arg342 (talk) 00:29, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

Battle of Long Tan[edit]

The page needs some balance. You kept an eye on this page some years ago. I hope you can keep on eye on it again for a short while I try to include Vietnamese sources. I am in the process of preparing a letter to send to the Vietnamese authorities so that I can get hold of the full names and photos of the Vietnamese killed in the battle. This shouldn't be too hard a task for the Vietnamese combatants killed are largely buried at the Truong Son Martyrs' Cemetery with name and photograph included as well as details of their unit and date of death. My main concern is that the number of Vietnamese attackers the Australians claim were involved seems to be getting bigger and bigger, from a reinforced enemy battalion (see US Presidential Citation of the time) to 1,500 (1970s claim) to 2,500 (1980s claim) and recently a whopping 3,500 (it is starting to appear in some Australian publications glorifying the diggers).--94.46.3.195 (talk) 04:55, 21 April 2013 (UTC)

Just as I feared, my edits have been removed and I'm really disappointed because I provided sources, including the 6th Battalion War Diary available online. Can you please help?--94.46.3.195 (talk) 06:47, 21 April 2013 (UTC)

The article is fully cited (more than 300 fns). How is the 6 RAR War Diary any more reliable than what is used currently (essentially its a primary source anyway)? The figure of 188 is already included anyway. The text of the PUC is hardly evidence of anything (other than the fact 6 RAR was awarded one). Incidentally the 3,500 figure you mention above is not included in the article so not sure why you raise that as an issue. The 1,500 to 2,500 range is what is in the literature available (fully cited in the article). Viet Cong claims of only suffering 30 casualties are also included (even if barely credible) so I fail to see how you can claim that this isn't balanced. All key claims from both sides that I have found in reliable sources are included (hence why it is 187,000 kb). I would ask you to read the entire article rather than selected parts of it before you make such claims. Nearly everything you added is already discussed in the article (without the block quotes you seem to think are necessary though). Anotherclown (talk) 08:19, 21 April 2013 (UTC)

51st Battalion (Australia)[edit]

Hello Grant, I notice that you have moved "51st Battalion, Far North Queensland Regiment" to "51st Battalion (Australia)". I have several concerns about this that I wish to discuss. Firstly, my understanding is that the unit's current name is "51st Battalion, Far North Queensland Regiment". In the past our naming conventions have usually been to move articles to their current name, hence: 1st Battalion, Royal Australian Regiment rather than "65th Battalion" etc. Secondly, was there a discussion about this move? The last I saw, the conversation on the article talk page indicated consensus for the article being moved to "51st Battalion, Far North Queensland Regiment", but maybe I missed something... Finally, there appears to be two active talk pages: Talk: 51st Battalion (Australia) and Talk:51st Battalion, Far North Queensland Regiment. Should these be merged etc as well? Additionally, can you please update the article's assessment, as it now appears to have been demoted from B class to stub. Regards, AustralianRupert (talk) 07:40, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

No. 485 Squadron RNZAF - redirect cockup?[edit]

You seem to have created an infinite loop with No. 485 Squadron RNZAF which points only to itself as a redirect. Was there any content initially because I can't see it at either No. 485 Squadron RNZAF or No. 485 Squadron RAF.GraemeLeggett (talk) 09:59, 25 October 2013 (UTC)

  • Ditto. While I realise that you've worked hard on this I cannot understand why the articles are now titled No. 4xx Squadron RNZAF, which is even more erroneous than their original tiles. There's no reason why the titles couldn't have been changed to No. 4xx (NZ) Squadron RAF or 4xx (New Zealand) Squadron RAF in line with what has been written in the note, which you have now removed " 485 Squadron was referred to informally as 485 (New Zealand) or 485 (NZ) and never as 485 Squadron, RNZAF''? ALL of the RNZAF Squadrons, which operated exclusively in the Pacific theatre during WW 2 had nothing to do with the Article XV units. This is why "A note on New Zealand Squadrons in the RAF" was added to the articles in the first place. Min✪rhist✪rianMTalk 22:23, 25 October 2013 (UTC)
