AI Mk. IV review[edit]

Just a note to say I've almost caught up with the review and am taking a break for some house chores and possibly another FAC review I need to respond to. I have still to respond to one or two of your replies, and I should be able to get back to it tonight. Mike Christie (talk - contribs - library) 20:15, 30 November 2014 (UTC)

@Mike Christie: No hurry, the review has already outlasted the entire Battle of Britain, so if we push into Blitz territory that would seem appropriate. Maury Markowitz (talk) 21:41, 30 November 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for your patience. I've tried to make the review more manageable by shifting resolved issues into a collapsed section. I've responded on most of what's left; there are a couple that I'd like to read the whole article again before responding to, and a couple more I just haven't got to. I am probably done for the night unless I get another burst of energy; I'll get back to this tomorrow some time. Mike Christie (talk - contribs - library) 00:52, 1 December 2014 (UTC)
Checking in; are you waiting for anything from me? There are just a handful of minor points left, and I expect to support once those are sorted out. Mike Christie (talk - contribs - library) 13:34, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
No, sorry, just got very busy IRL with a trade show. I'm back to it this weekend. Maury Markowitz (talk) 13:35, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

Auto Defense Choc[edit]

Hello, Maury,

Based on prior comment, you may be interested in the above newly posted article. It has been nominated for DYK.

Need some help here[edit]

Hi M, calling upon you , Obi Wan Kinobi, again as I have a follower who seems to want to remove imagery from films that I edit under the same basis even though I do not pick out frivolous or fluff images to illustrate key section of the film articles that I work up. As you may know, I am a former filmmaker, and have an interest in particular areas of film production, so I do not create trivial commentary or provide useless imagery. FWiW Bzuk (talk) 05:31, 8 December 2014 (UTC)

My suggestion is to point to the 2001 article - close enough to jedi for you?! That article has multiple non-PD images in different sections in a fashion similar to yours. I suspect anyone touching that article in response will find the reception exactly as welcoming as Kubric's reaction to news of a sequel. Maury Markowitz (talk) 16:32, 8 December 2014 (UTC)

Radar[edit]

I'm afraid your latest change to AI Mk. IV radar doesn't work – the reference is added to the end of the External links section since the callout occurs after {{reflist}}. If you want to have a superscript callout in that sentence, you would need to move the sentence to the start of the References section (or just before the reflist invocation). --Mirokado (talk) 21:09, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

  • sigh*. Is there any reason we need this link? The cite in question is the very next line. Maury Markowitz (talk) 21:52, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
Har. Well I will support whether or not you agree to the change, it's not worth a long argument, but it is the sort of technical imperfection I routinely correct when looking at articles, so you will probably have to revert other editors correcting it from time to time if you don't want it. Anyway, what is wrong with having the link like every other reference to that source has? --Mirokado (talk) 23:46, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
None at all, and if you know a simple way to get the link to work properly, by all means. Maury Markowitz (talk) 00:02, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
Well, this update was exactly what I think we need, it just adds a wikilink to what you would presumably write without the link. I've already suggested moving the sentence if you prefer a superscript callout. --Mirokado (talk) 01:00, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

FAC note[edit]

Hi -- I see Graham posted a note that he's considering archiving the FAC and is waiting for a response. I'd hate to see it get archived with the amount of work you've done on it. Are you going to be able to respond soon? Is there anything I can do to help? I think it's close; you just need to get a couple of responses in and you may well get a support from Mirokado, which would likely push it over the top. Mike Christie (talk - contribs - library) 01:15, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

Yes indeed, I am basically waiting to support this article. There is the one reference (see #Radar) which needs sorting out somehow and one picture which is currently problematical. --Mirokado (talk) 01:49, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for December 20[edit]
