Have a Barnstar[edit]

The Citation Barnstar The Citation Barnstar
For your prompt addition on a reference on Canadair CF-5 (and fixing of other refs there). (talk) 05:56, 29 May 2016 (UTC)
Thank you! - Ahunt (talk) 10:19, 29 May 2016 (UTC)

Tone down ...[edit]

"Tone down, claims like that really require refs to be cited, tagged" It is hard today to realise how important the Europa was. I'll dig out the refs when I have time, and then will reconsider the sentence; but it is important for the Europa's significance to be made clear in the lead.

Also, re the foam core wings, some builders had terrible problems and added a lot of weight to the wings with filler, and still ended with a plane looking as if it were made of ferrocement! The XS wings were a godsend to all.

Do have a look at the talk page: I've explained why I can't provide a citation. Cheers. Arrivisto (talk) 17:24, 29 May 2016 (UTC)

Nice to hear from, sure let's take this over to the talk page. - Ahunt (talk) 03:01, 30 May 2016 (UTC)

Merger discussion for Embraer Legacy 500[edit]


An article that you have been involved in editing—Embraer Legacy 500—has been proposed for merging with another article. If you are interested, please participate in the merger discussion. Thank you. Marc Lacoste (talk) 09:41, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

Gradient Golden[edit]

No, it's not anything you did wrong. There's a system bug whereby every once in a while, for no obvious reason a small cluster of newly created articles will end up wrongly being reported on Wikipedia's tools for detecting uncategorized articles even though they do have categories on them — and doing a quick delete-restore on them is the only way I can clear those articles back off that list. It's nothing you did wrong; it's just a stupid server burp that nobody can prevent in advance except for the bugfixers. Bearcat (talk) 14:37, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for your note here. Okay that is great, thank you for letting me know. I create a lot of new articles, so if it was at my end I would want to fix it. I hope that the powers-that-be get the software fixed so that doesn't happen in the future. - Ahunt (talk) 14:40, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

Updates on NewLeaf[edit]

I posted some updates with respect to NewLeaf, which you have so kindly editted in the past. One editor expressed the view that it is not sufficiently significant to be noted on Wikipedia. Would you mind having a look yourself too? Thank you in advance for your time. Gabor Lukacs (talk) 08:39, 11 June 2016 (UTC)

Why are you reverting Cyberbot?[edit]

If the bot has a problem, report it. Stop randomly reverting cyberbot without an informative edit summary. If it is broken, how? ThePlatypusofDoom (Talk) 23:42, 3 July 2016 (UTC)

It has already been reported, diagnosed and a solution agreed to, which includes me reverting it and fixing its broken edits, see User_talk:Cyberpower678#Cyberbot. - Ahunt (talk) 23:45, 3 July 2016 (UTC)
It doesn't say to revert it. It's also completely messing up the anti-vandalism feed. ThePlatypusofDoom (Talk) 23:49, 3 July 2016 (UTC)
Well I fixed all the articles as per consensus on that talk page, now I am just cleaning up the talk pages, but if it would make life easier I can just remove the text, rather than revert the talk pages. - Ahunt (talk) 23:52, 3 July 2016 (UTC)

Tanzer Sailboats[edit]

Thanks Ahunt for the entries for Tanzer sailboats particularly the Tanzer 16. As the owner of a 50 year old Tanzer Constellation (the first name of the Tanzer 16), I have been doing my own research on the Constellation, Tanzer 16 and Tanzer Overnighter. Glad to see the first wikis have been created.

I was most interested in the picture you took of the Tanzer 16, sail number 1456, as that boat is sailing on a body of water I know well, and actually will be sailing on tomorrow in a race (Shark 24). I suspect that you may be on the north side of the river.

In any event, what you have included about the Constellation 16, Tanzer 16, and Overnighter 16 (The names, as far as I can tell, were actually Tanzer Constellation, Tanzer 16 and Tanzer Overnighter) is supported by sources, and that's good. There are minor errors in those sources, which I may fix, though my sources are tougher to cite.

Thanks again for getting the ball rolling. Canadian Uisge (talk) 03:29, 14 July 2016 (UTC)

Glad that was all helpful. It seemed amazing to me that we had no articles on any Tanzer boats, so I at least got them all started, with photos from my own collection, where possible. I sail a US Yachts US 22 out of Nepean, so south side, although that photo was shot at Alymer! It was a bit of an "arty" photo, with the trees framing the boat. - Ahunt (talk) 11:35, 14 July 2016 (UTC)

Swiss Air Force VFR Code[edit]

Hello, at the moment, i haven't found a good ref for the 6100 Swiss Air Force VFR code. I don't knew if this is good enough [1], don't log in just scrol down,list on the bottom Unfortunatly Radar24 shows no fighters but it shows the VFR 6100 PC-21.. but I am afraid Radar24 is not well enough for wikipedia. FFA P-16 (talk) 22:18, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

I am afraid that ref doesn't really prove anything. Those squawks could be assigned for any reason. We really need a better ref. - Ahunt (talk) 22:20, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

OK, I will search for this.FFA P-16 (talk) 22:22, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

Just for information: Unfortunatly, it is in no public document that the swiss Military use the Mod3 sq 6100 for VFR flights. I had searched for it. So I can not put this into the English wikipeda. :-( FFA P-16 (talk) 14:49, 25 July 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for the welcome![edit]

Thanks much for taking the time to welcome me to Wikipedia. I have been a heavy lurker for years, and have anonymously corrected typos and the like whenever I have encountered them. Recently, I finally decided that I should have an account, given the amount of time I spend on the site. I just wanted to drop in here for a quick clarification: Did you send me the links that you did because I erred in how I submitted my most recent edit, or were those simply part of the "welcome package"? I don't think I made a mistake, but I didn't want to miss something if I am incorrect. If so, what did I do wrong? Thanks again, and I appreciate the welcome! 4tesseract4 (talk) 20:22, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for your note here! No you did fine, that is just a "standard welcome package" to help newcomers here. It's usefulness depends greatly on how long someone has been editing as an IP. I hope you stay and help us build the encyclopedia! - Ahunt (talk) 14:52, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

Tomark Viper[edit]

Afternoon Ahunt,

I'm fairly sure that the Prezke prop is as stated in Jane's 2011 (it's in my 2011 initial version), though I'll check the next time I'm in the library. In the meantime I've put it back in. DUC is another propmaker and the types named exist; I guess the other two companies do as well. However, the Tomark site says particular props for particular engine types, so the list is misleading and should not appear, even if Tomark fit them to other models of Rotax in the Viper. While I'm in the library I'll check the 2016 Jane's to see if there are any substantial updates.

Thanks again for the vigilant despamming! Cheers,TSRL (talk) 14:42, 8 August 2016 (UTC)

"Prezke Aero Technologies" must be a very secret company, there is no mention of them on the internet that I can find outside the Tomark Viper Wikipedia article, but if Jane's says that, then okay. - Ahunt (talk) 15:12, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
Ahha! I made a typo - it's Peszke and this Polish firm is in the prop-makers list in JAWA11/12. I'll correct the spelling. Cheers,TSRL (talk) 16:31, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
Ahha! that explains it! - Ahunt (talk) 02:05, 9 August 2016 (UTC)

912 talk page link removal[edit]

Hi Ahunt!

You removed the talk page link I put up to bring attention to a question I had about an incorrect reference regarding the 912iS having direct fuel injection. Did you get a chance to look at the talk page that the link referenced?

Speedy deletion nomination of Honcho (magazine)[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.

A tag has been placed on Honcho (magazine) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person, a group of people, an individual animal, an organization (band, club, company, etc.), web content, or an organized event, but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. The Big Bad Wolfowitz (aka Hullaballoo). Treated like dirt by administrators since 2006. (talk) 23:21, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Honcho (magazine)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Honcho (magazine) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No assertion of significance, let alone a claim of notability. No reliable sourcing -- only ref is a site selling back issues. Speedy declined with rationale that print magazines aren't eligible for db-inc, which I don't believe is consistent with past practice or the way webzines have been treated under A7.

While all constructive 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. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Orphaned non-free image File:Google Chrome 49.0.2623.87 English.png[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:Google Chrome 49.0.2623.87 English.png. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 17:17, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

I'm beginning to suspect a compromised account, or perhaps a relative/friend editing on the same account. It's quite odd for someone who's been around awhile. - BilCat (talk) 10:48, 17 August 2016 (UTC)

The comments about "destroying someone's work" are typical of a newbie, not an experienced user who knows that everything is in the history. Very odd. - BilCat (talk) 10:53, 17 August 2016 (UTC)

No problem. Regardless of the reason and the "heatedness" of the debate editors have to remain WP:CIVIL and that post I removed was well over the line. If the account was compromised, I hope the editor regains control of it. - Ahunt (talk) 10:59, 17 August 2016 (UTC)
Doesn't matter how long you've been around. A revert always hurts if you think the other person's edit is much less constructive than your own. Much more so if someone lies that he's reverting, but still keeps your changes. I could also have raised an edit war resolution request, but decided to step down, as the history of the article shows, that my opponent obviously has a personal stake in this. Also his needing many edits for a single sentence leads me to believe that he's very impulsive instead of making up his mind soberly. I have better things to do than argue with people willing to spend so much of their energy on edit wars. --BjKa (talk) 11:26, 17 August 2016 (UTC)
None of that is an excuse for being as incivil as you were. Please read Wikipedia:Staying cool when the editing gets hot. - Ahunt (talk) 11:34, 17 August 2016 (UTC)

I made a good contribution to the F-35 article and now they want to delete my account.

Ok but would like Ahunt's view.Cantab1985 (talk) 06:21, 18 August 2016 (UTC)
No problem. I was just letting Ahunt know that you also asked me for help, and that I answered on your talk page. - BilCat (talk) 06:36, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for your note here. In looking though the background it seems that a sockpuppet investigation is underway. It is not necessarily a big problem, just remain cool, read through Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/SPI/Guidance and request a "checkuser" be carried out. That will show the IP addresses involved and be conclusive in settling the case. I had a sockpuppet accusation some years ago. I settled it by posting my IP address from a signed out comment and that showed that I wasn't even on the same continent as the other users. That ended it pretty quickly. - Ahunt (talk) 10:32, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

Not civil[edit]

Hello, I am sorry the fellow user didn't like my comment. Please note that I was just advising him: Donald Trump as a POTUS will indeed kick his a s s.

Mohammed Galib Hasan (talk) 13:42, 15 September 2016 (UTC)

Generally the best approach is to upload them to Commons, make sure they have good descriptive titles and appropriate categories and then editors will locate them there and put them into articles on English and other language versions of Wikipedia. The key thing is good file names, though or else they will nit get found. - Ahunt (talk) 14:21, 15 September 2016 (UTC)

Ahunt ok it will be in my knowledge. can wiki aviation portal translated in Bangla ? As we have a lot of users who are interested in Aviation. Mohammed Galib Hasan (talk) 09:43, 16 September 2016 (UTC)

Articles do get translated between different languages on Wikipedia. The licencing allows that, just keep the refs intact! - Ahunt (talk) 13:10, 16 September 2016 (UTC)


for this edit[2]. A small but true joke.

Userbox Teaching?[edit]

Hi Ahunt, I'm Kingstevenrules. You welcomed me to Wikipedia a few weeks ago, and told me to ask you for help that I may need. Well, that time has come. I come to you seeking knowledge about Userboxes. So... O' Great and Wise Ahunt, will you teach me the ways of Userboxes?

Thanks, Kingstevenrules (talk) 17:57, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Sure, no problem, what would you like to know about them? - Ahunt (talk) 21:59, 23 September 2016 (UTC)
How do you make one? Is there any special coding that you need to know in order for it to work? And also, which would be better to use for making a userbox, Visual Editor or Source Editor? Kingstevenrules (talk) 14:49, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
Probably the best guide to getting started is at Wikipedia:Userboxes. I would suggest having a read of that first and then try making a box using the coding for a similar one and then modifying it as described there, to change colours, border, etc. Use the direct coding, I never use visual editor for anything! It is best to do that in your own user space. If you get stuck drop me a note back here and I'll be happy to help. - Ahunt (talk) 22:07, 26 September 2016 (UTC)

Porteus (OS) Info about: upcoming new version and why delay[edit]

How can I include a short info about the delay with the new version for Porteus. The reason is there are 2 different variants under development right now, the upcoming 3.2 that is still Slackware based, currently as rc5 (all other Porteus versions have been released as final after rc2), and a new different version that will supersede the Slackware one, for now called "Nemesis". (Personally I am no friend of that name...) That will be (most probably) be called Porteus 3.0. All that can be backed up with references to forum posts, but how to include it into the article without getting the critique of "promotional article about a non-notable Linux distro" once again?

All you need to include that are proper refs. Project announcements are fine for that purpose, but not forum posts, unless they are official announcements, see WP:SPS for some details. - Ahunt (talk) 22:52, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
Hmmm.... but our main programmer, Brokenman, usually uses forum post for such info. Often he then posts such official info in a read-only thread. Would such a Info, Read-Only thread by the only person with rank of administrator be okay for the purpose? I already sent him a PM and await his answer. Rava77 (talk) 23:02, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
It should be, as long as he can be identified as such. It is really a matter of the authority of the source. Lots of software projects use forums for official announcements, as long as it is clear who is posting, that is okay. - Ahunt (talk) 23:05, 27 September 2016 (UTC)

October 2016[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Talk:Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you are reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly. Eck (talk) 18:07, 2 October 2016 (UTC)

Nope, you are wrong, I only reverted twice, you reverted three times, you are in violation of the rules, not me. - Ahunt (talk) 18:15, 2 October 2016 (UTC)
Sorry to see that you got a 24 hour block out of this. - Ahunt (talk) 19:04, 2 October 2016 (UTC)

Just in case you missed it[edit]

See this deletion of a photo that you apparently took. Do you know of any legitimate reason for its removal? Thanks. - BilCat (talk) 07:01, 3 October 2016 (UTC)

Nope I can't think of any reason, just vandalism I guess. Thanks for reverting it! - Ahunt (talk) 11:37, 3 October 2016 (UTC)
You're welcome. - BilCat (talk) 16:32, 3 October 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for October 6[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Ranger Yachts, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Conglomerate (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Is there info for adding rottentomatoes / metacritic / similar review pages?[edit]

Is there some info with (empty) templates for adding / / similar review pages? I tried searching the wikihelp, but to no prevail.
(with "similar" I mean as NPOV accepted review pages as the 1st 2 named, I cannot recall the ones I saw on here, cause rottentomatoes & metacritic are the most common while the other(s?) is quite rare to be found... Rava77 (talk) 18:20, 11 October 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for your question. In general because WP:LINKFARM we use these are cited refs or don't otherwise include them in articles. - Ahunt (talk) 19:03, 11 October 2016 (UTC)

Odd question on thumb sizings[edit]

Ahunt, I have a question regarding thumb sizings in photos in articles. Sometimes, people add an odd thumb sizing, such as "261x261px", as in this diff. Any idea where that comes from? Thanks, and I'm just curious. - BilCat (talk) 11:04, 12 October 2016 (UTC)

Nope, that is downright odd sizing, indeed. The next time someone phones me from "The Windows Technical Department", I'll ask him. - Ahunt (talk) 11:28, 12 October 2016 (UTC)
LOL. Yeah, I've gotten those calls to, but not in a while, thankfully. - BilCat (talk) 11:30, 12 October 2016 (UTC)
I get them almost every day. Those guys seem to know what is going on in India. I'll ask them! - Ahunt (talk) 11:46, 12 October 2016 (UTC)


I've been on WP over 10 years now. I wasn't on it very long before becoming convinced that open editing was a mistake, and every day convinces me more and more of that. I hate to say it, but far too many incompetent people edit WP, many of them being functionally illiterate in English, including people who speak English as a first language! I really love the positive aspects of editing WP, but being an unpaid babysitter just sucks. Sigh. (See this last in a series of edits that set me off. One report of intent, and a slew of editors act like its settled fact!) - BilCat (talk) 16:34, 13 October 2016 (UTC)

LOL, that is all quite true. I like to think that we are building a really valuable encyclopedia, despite all the idiots here! - Ahunt (talk) 16:45, 13 October 2016 (UTC)
If only the Foundation thought so too, and helped us do that effectively. - BilCat (talk) 16:48, 13 October 2016 (UTC)
I think that fact that we have a pretty good product here despite it, shows that we got something right. On the other hand it might be much better yet with quicker blocks issued! - Ahunt (talk) 16:52, 13 October 2016 (UTC)

Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II[edit]

Greetings, I just started a discussion in the talk page of Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II regarding the Undue Weight -template that has been in the article since May 2015. Since you have multiple recent contributions, you might have something to say about it. --Ras (talk) 20:38, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

CFB Downsview[edit]

Do you see any issue with this request, or should it be contested? Otherwise, the move will probably be made. Thanks. - BilCat (talk) 01:15, 19 October 2016 (UTC)

He is actually right, it always was CFB Toronto. - Ahunt (talk) 02:00, 19 October 2016 (UTC)
Done. I figured you'd know, or could find out quicker than I could. Thanks. - BilCat (talk) 03:03, 19 October 2016 (UTC)
Also, congratulations on Canada getting 3 aircraft carriers! I'm sure an IP from Mexico couldn't be wrong about that! - BilCat (talk) 10:28, 19 October 2016 (UTC)

Hello Ahunt, I noticed the article Chevron (aeronautics) was merged into turbofan without any discussion, what do you think of it? --TerrainAhead (talk) 03:13, 20 October 2016 (UTC)

It is a pretty minor design feature, so the merge makes sense to me. With the redirect readers will be able to find it okay. - Ahunt (talk) 12:47, 20 October 2016 (UTC)

Page mover[edit]

Ahunt, have you thought about applying for Wikipedia:Page mover? With your experience, I think you would do well with it. I've had it for several weeks now, and it's very useful for cleaning up ill-advised moves (Pete - cough), or otherwise making moves where necessary. Given the work you do with images, Wikipedia:File mover might also be something you could do. I didn't ask for that one as I don't do much work with images. - BilCat (talk) 08:14, 23 October 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for the suggestion. That sounds like it might be a useful tool, so I have applied. - Ahunt (talk) 14:03, 23 October 2016 (UTC)
