German Military History[edit]

Ranks and Insignia of the German Army in World War II[edit]

General

Beginning in 1900 Prussian generals had worn ornate collar patches embroidered in a style called alt-Larisch, which had first been worn in the 18th century by the 26th (Älterer von Larisch) Infantry Regiment. These devices, sometimes called Arabesken (arabesques), were embroidered in gold bullion or bright golden synthetic Celleon on Hochrot (scarlet) backing. The Reichsheer and the Wehrmacht continued the tradition.

Field Marshal

Field Marshals wore the same Arabesken as generals until April 1941, when they were authorized a longer variant with three rather than two iterations of the repeating pattern, for a total of six "prongs."

General officers of the various staff corps (medical, veterinary etc.) wore the same insignia until 1944, when they were ordered to exchange their red Kragenpatten for alt-Larisch tabs backed in their service's respective Waffenfarbe.


Nice job on the new article. I do think it needs a References section. Cheers, Kierzek (talk) 12:29, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 17:53, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

Hello, I thought you'd be interested in learning that the Royd Baker vs. Christopher Carrie issue is now being continued on the article by User:Christopher Carrie, deleting this and that "bogus" source. De728631 (talk) 17:49, 28 July 2010 (UTC)

My "Foul Book" is published by request to hundreds of interested parties without interruption, anyone including you can get copy "FREE" by sending a request to administrator@jtolkien.com To put your comment in context I have disseminated my book 'Tolkien is Klone'it' since November 1999 yet to date not one single (legal action) has been initiated against me by a single member of the Tolkien family, says it all don't you think. What is "Fr John Tolkien may be dead" supposed to infer, the facts are he had a ten year opportunity to take "legal action" against me, he never did! However when I took action against him 'personally' he popped his clogs on the very morning the case was listed to be heard in the Royal Courts of Justice, it's in my book, you just couldn't make it up.

Information.svg Please do not attack other editors. Comment on content, not on contributors. Personal attacks damage the community and deter users. Please stay cool and keep this in mind while editing. Thank you.--John (talk) 21:49, 9 November 2010 (UTC)

Then please do not attack other editors by simply wiping out their views on discussion pages. You are engaging in POV censorship and you know it; one cannot "assume good faith" when there is no conceivable coloratuion of good faith involved Solicitr (talk)
Discussion pages are to be used only for discussing possible improvements to the articles. If you diverge into general discussion, the post may be removed. If you attack other editors, you may be blocked. --John (talk) 21:57, 9 November 2010 (UTC)
Ah. "You have been warned," couched in the tones of the hall monitor. The threatening of the Wikilawyer, confident that his command of the Rules allows him to silence debate. --Solicitr (talk) 22:07, 9 November 2010 (UTC)
Sorry if it came across that way. We don't really have rules so much as norms; but if you do stuff that holds back the development of the project you will definitely face sanctions. We are not primarily here to have "debate" (though there are plenty of forums out there where you can do this), but to write an encyclopedia. Surely this isn't news to you? --John (talk) 22:15, 9 November 2010 (UTC)

Discussion pages are for discussing the article. If an article contravenes (at least in an editor's subjective opinions) the norms, in this case NPOV, then it ought to be discussed; and you don't facilitate that by simply shutting off the microphone. Talk pages are there for that purpose, being vastly superior to edit wars. Yes, we are trying to make an encyclopedia- which means that it should be long on facts and short on opinion; and the facts presented shouldn't be so imbalanced as to amount to op/ed. --Solicitr (talk) 22:32, 9 November 2010 (UTC)

Ah, now we're talking. Certainly talk page discussion is better than edit-warring, I agree with you there. If you read the talk archives at that page though, you'll see just how thoroughly this has been discussed in the past. While it's true that consensus can change, if it happens on this topic it is going to be from new political and/or legal developments, and not from one editor's opinions. I suggest you go back to the archives, read them thoroughly and reevaluate whether you have anything to add to the topic. It is precisely because this has been such a fraught topic in the past that I am taking such a line on the matter. I hope you understand and I thank you for your understanding. --John (talk) 23:43, 9 November 2010 (UTC)

Talk pages[edit]

Please remember to focus your talkpage contributions on the topic of concrete improvements to the associated article, especially when discussing contentious topics.

Umlauts and strange letters[edit]

Hi Solicitr,
I notice that you are using a rather convoluted method of generating umlauts in the 4th SS Polizei Division article. Until recently I was in the same boat (not anymore as I now have a German keyboard), but I found (I forget how), that if you put your cursor on the spot that requires the umlaut, go to the 'Insert' field at the bottom of the edit box and click the 'Latin' tag, you get all sorts of umlauts, 'ess-seds(ß), Grave and Acute accents and so on. Click on the one that you want and hey presto, it appears in the appropiate place. It might not be as quick as having the correct keyboard, but it certainly means not having to remember complicated pieces of code!

But then you probably know this already.
Regards

World War II ship camouflage measures of the United States Navy[edit]

Hi, I see you've made quite a number of additions to this article in the last few days, but I don't see any new citations - some paragraphs are now entirely uncited, while in other cases there is new text inserted above an existing citation, which (if not from the named source) could be misleading. Could you please indicate which books or other reliable sources you have been using in the article? I haven't marked up "citations needed" but can of course do that if it would be helpful.

Images in Ship camouflage measures[edit]

Hello again Solicitr, I am a bit unsure about two of the images in the article now.

The new image of Maryland does not add much to the reader's understanding of measure 1 - apart from being monochrome, it is very hard to see what if anything she is wearing. It also makes the first measure's row enormous and full of whitespace, of course. Perhaps it would be best removed. I'd remove it myself, actually, but for the fact that you seem to have reinstated the presence of 2 images of ships (Saratoga and Duluth) both wearing measure 32, Design 11A. Since the patterns shown are indeed very similar, I'm not sure I can see the logic for this - there's already Miami with 32, 1D in the same row, so again the whitespace is huge and problematic. If I recall, I removed one of the images a lot-of-editing-ago, so its reinstatement is a bit worrying as we haven't discussed it.

I'd propose to remove both Maryland and Saratoga (or Duluth) from the article, unless you have clear and cogent reasons to the contrary. If you do, then I suggest we devise a format which allows 2 images side-by-side to avoid the whitespace problem.

Thanks for your understanding. Chiswick Chap (talk) 17:53, 12 April 2013 (UTC)

... This one hasn't gone away. TheWellman has contributed (very sensibly) to the discussion on the article's talk page, proposing a list of things we might do. It seems clear that we need to keep the Duluth and Saratoga images, given his arguments, so I wonder if you'd like to suggest which of his approaches (if any) you'd favour? - All the best, Chiswick Chap (talk) 19:08, 14 April 2013 (UTC)

Totenkopf - explanation of the word[edit]

"head of Death" would be "Kopf des Todes" (grammatical name: Genitiv), could (according to the grammar rules) be rendered as "Todeskopf" (no such word is in use). "dead head" would be "toter Kopf", which nobody would say, because nobody says that "the head is living" or "the head is dead"; "toter Kopf" makes no sense. When you say "Totenkopf" it means head of a Toter, that is head of a dead person (Toter). 87.150.243.37 (talk) 00:07, 12 September 2013 (UTC)

This is an automated message from MadmanBot. I have performed a search with the contents of World War II US Navy dazzle camouflage measures 31, 32 and 33: destroyers, and it appears to be very similar to another Wikipedia page: World War II US Navy dazzle camouflage measures 31, 32 and 33: aircraft carriers.

November 2013[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Flight deck. 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. Also, please remember that referring to another editor as a liar is considered a personal attack. Please remember WP:BRD, and that edit summaries are NOT for discussion - discuss the issue at the article talk page. If this continues you may be blocked and/or the page locked to force discussion instead of continued edit-warring. The Bushranger One ping only 05:17, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

World War II ship camouflage measures of the United States Navy[edit]

I disagree with your assessment that Admiralty camouflage section work begun in October 1940 and reflecting combat experience through 1942 is not germane to USN patterns promulgated in 1943.

Aragorn reference needed[edit]

In this edit [2] back in Jan 2013, you say Tolkien wrote that Aragorn would appear as a weather-beaten forty-five to those unfamiliar with his lineage. This has been tagged as needing a reference, so I went looking for it. But although I could swear I've read that before (perhaps in WP!), I can't find the reference. Can you supply one? -- Elphion (talk) 05:36, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

It's in Letters. I'll look it up Solicitr (talk) 15:43, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
Done and edited. Actually it wasn't in Letters, but in POME (and the adjective wasn't "weatherbeaten" but "hardened.") Solicitr (talk) 16:12, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! I did check Letters. HOME was my next stop, but the sheer number of refs to Aragorn was daunting -- so I thought I'd ask you first. -- Elphion (talk) 18:28, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
