Hey[edit]

You did a bunch of great work on Chromebook, so I was wondering if you might be interested in tinkering with Project Glass too... Best regards, Steven Walling • talk 23:50, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

I can have a look over the next day or two. - Ahunt (talk) 00:19, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
Thanks! Steven Walling • talk 00:40, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
I had a look though it and what is there looks okay, I just made a few small changes for formatting. It certainly has good refs. Not much is known about the project at present and so there isn't a lot of text that can be added right now, but I am sure as the project proceeds and more results are released that more tech media refs will appear with updates. - Ahunt (talk) 12:56, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

Dispute resolution survey[edit]

Peace dove.svg

Dispute Resolution – Survey Invite


Hello Ahunt. I am currently conducting a study on the dispute resolution processes on the English Wikipedia, in the hope that the results will help improve these processes in the future. Whether you have used dispute resolution a little or a lot, now we need to know about your experience. The survey takes around five minutes, and the information you provide will not be shared with third parties other than to assist in analyzing the results of the survey. No personally identifiable information will be released.

Please click HERE to participate.
Many thanks in advance for your comments and thoughts.


You are receiving this invitation because you have had some activity in dispute resolution over the past year. For more information, please see the associated research page. Steven Zhang DR goes to Wikimania! 02:08, 6 April 2012 (UTC)

Sorry I tried completing it, but the survey is badly designed and wouldn't accept my answers. It insisted on answers that I was instructed to leave blank if I had not participated in that mechanism. - Ahunt (talk) 09:51, 6 April 2012 (UTC)

Bob Bailey Designs[edit]

I know that Bob Bailey designed the Connie because he told me! See: http://www.msacomputer.com/FlyingBoats-old/ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMjLR_cktZo You can see the similarity to the Dragonfly.

He worked for Highcraft Aeromarine on the Buccaneer although it was not his concept. He helped to develop the Buccaneer 2 and the Buccaneer SX: http://www.ultralightnews.com/ssulbg/connie-moyes_microlites.htm

As for a citation for the 50L tank, Bob has just built a Dragonfly for me with a 912UL engine and a 50L tank.

Cheers,

Mirek (aka Konrad6da) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Konrad6da (talkcontribs) 15:17, 6 April 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for your note. That wouldn't belong in the Dragonfly article, but in an article on Bailey-Moyes Ultralights or in a biography article on him, if we had those. As far as "As for a citation for the 50L tank, Bob has just built a Dragonfly for me with a 912UL engine and a 50L tank" goes, please see WP:OR. We need to cite reliable references for factual information added. "I know this is right" is not a reliable source that can be verified. - Ahunt (talk) 16:06, 6 April 2012 (UTC)

Glidersport LightHawk[edit]

Wow ... great job on the Glidersport LightHawk. Thanks. S.Steve.Adkins — Preceding unsigned comment added by S.Steve.Adkins (talkcontribs)

No problem, with good refs we can achieve anything here. - Ahunt (talk) 17:42, 6 April 2012 (UTC)

Moyes Dragonfly variants[edit]

Hi Ahunt,

With regard to to the 'Variants' section, I don't think it is right to say that the Dragonfly C is the up engined version. The original version and the B have been superseded. The base model is now the C airframe with the Rotax 582 engine.

I don't know what citation is appropriate for this. The LiteFlite website doesn't mention any variants with respect to the airframe; the only choice mentioned is the choice of engine. In practice one can also choose the larger fuel tank, which instruments to fit and also the option of wider tyres but these are perhaps too trivial to mention.

Konrad6da (talk) 04:13, 9 April 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for your note. The only ref I have for the "C" model is Downey, Julia: 2005 Kit Aircraft Directory, Kitplanes, Volume 21, Number 12, December 2004, page 69. Belvoir Publications. ISSN 0891-1851. Let me rework the article on the basis of what that ref says and see what you think. - Ahunt (talk) 11:42, 9 April 2012 (UTC)

Yes, very good! I can't argue with that.

Cheers, Konrad6da (talk) 10:02, 14 April 2012 (UTC)

Glad that works! Thanks for checking it over. - Ahunt (talk) 11:30, 14 April 2012 (UTC)

An afterthought: I have a pdf copy of the aircraft flight and operation manual. Is that acceptable for citation as a source document (given that it is not published in the public domain, it is only available to owners)? Konrad6da (talk) 07:03, 15 April 2012 (UTC)

That is fine as a ref, just cite it the same as a book. - Ahunt (talk) 10:44, 15 April 2012 (UTC)

You need to cite a reliable ref, not a forum. See WP:SPS. The Google link has no useful information that can be cited - there was a problem they fixed it, it doesn't indicate how many people were affected. Regardless of all of this, temporary outages are normal in all web services, they are not encyclopedic events unless noted in third party reliable refs as notable. - Ahunt (talk) 18:22, 17 April 2012 (UTC)

Sabre Aircraft[edit]

I couldn't figure out how to send you a message. I have never used Wikipedia before. I made some changes to the Sabre Aircraft page and you changed them back. I was just trying to correct, and add info. I have a lot more pictures if you want them. In any case, Sabre started production in 1991. Sun-n-Fun 92 was the first public showing, however it was advertised in Ultralight Flying magazine prior. We produced almost 1000 fully built and test flown trikes, and over double that in wings. At the time, many US and Mexican manufacturers used our wings. We were easily the oldest and largest US manufacturer. Northwing may have overtaken us by the end, I am not sure about that as all trike manufacturers were hurting, but it would have taken them years to catch up with our numbers. By the year 2000 we were up to about 100 trikes per year. However in 2002 they announced LSA and, like most manufacturers, our sales tanked. We still had good sales to Mexico, but the writing was on the wall. We stopped manufacturing trikes in 2005, and I sold the Factory building that year. That message on the web site was put there by the guy who did the site, not by us. I was on the ASTM committee to come up with the standards for Light Sport Weight Shift Aircraft. I was at odds with the committee, because I thought their rules were lacking in many areas, and simply not correct in others. I went on to start Helm Navigation LLC to produce the X650 www.helmnav.com

The Sabre Trike was a beautifully simple trike that was a joy to fly, and had a safety record that is still tops in the industry.

Hopefully this will give you the information you need to update the site. By the way, I have a picture of the very first trike that I designed when I was 15 years old. I have a picture of me at 15yrs sitting in it just before a practice taxi run. I test flew it off of a frozen lake in Northern MN that winter. Let me know where to send the photos and I will give you all you need. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rhelm22 (talkcontribs) 17:49, 18 April 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for your note, this is fine to communicate. We can't update anything in the article unless we can cite reliable references that say this. Your own personal recollections are great, but they are original research and therefore not verifiable and can't be included. If you can point out a reliable reference that says this we can put it in, otherwise we are stuck with what the published refs do say. - Ahunt (talk) 19:50, 18 April 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Cyclone Airways[edit]

Diamond DA42-VI[edit]

The Diamond DA42-VI (roman numeral 6, ie. "dash 6") is now the official name of the new DA42. The previous "V1" was retired due to the unfortunate historical reference.

Here's the press announcement from Diamond Aircraft (at 15:20):

http://www.flitelevel.tv/episode/AeroDiamondPressConference

The AOPA article is also correctly updated, whereas the previous AVWeb article is now outdated.

The correct name can be seen on the images as well...

Allods Online userbox[edit]

Sorry for the mixup but people are using the One Ring. How does it qualify as a non-far image and there are not complains about the ring. Sorry but I don't get it. It's absurd point of view, I don't think it makes sense. Sorry, but I am bit frustrated.

Regards:The Mad Hatter (talk) 21:48, 2 May 2012 (UTC)
The image file data indicates that it is a copyright image and therefore can only only used on Wikipedia under US Copyright fair use rules. Wikipedia lawyers have indicated that the Act's fair use rules do not include the use of logos and such in user boxes thus rendering the use of copyrighted logos illegal under US law in user boxes. This means that you need to use a free image or lettering in the user box instead. I hope that makes sense as I am not a copyright lawyer. Wikipedia:USERBOX#Caution_about_image_use has more guidance on this. - Ahunt (talk) 21:57, 2 May 2012 (UTC)

I don't think there is anything cynical about it[edit]

Unfortunately, I suspect I'm being realistic, not cynical. As, apparently, paid editing is the new accepted norm on Wikipedia, editors who are interested in improving the encyclopedia without taking payment will be forced out - cetainly anyone who expreses any opinion other than complete acceptance seems to be shouted down very vigorously by its proponents. In addition, being attacked for having the nerve to try to improve an article found during a CCI clean-up, being told that I should not edit anywhere on Wikipedia because I referred to redacted instead of redacted for a British Naval Base in Northern Ireland, does not improve my mood.Nigel Ish (talk) 23:07, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

I guess not. I did read the new TOS and WP:COI and didn't see anywhere that this has changed. I was offered money to edit, but refused that because it would affect neutrality, I am sure others have done the same. - Ahunt (talk) 23:14, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

BATS Chi-X Europe[edit]

Hi Ahunt. As an above-board COI editor I take personal offense when I see edit histories from presumably COI editors like this.[1] The edit is described as "cleanup" but removes some controversial content. On the Talk page I saw you had previously worked with a COI editor on the article and I thought you may have been the one that took the time to improve the article and may be interested in policing it.

Just thought I would give you a heads up. I have a very distant COI in this matter, so I won't touch it. User:King4057 (COI Disclosure on User Page) 00:43, 10 May 2012 (UTC)

I didn't dig into it in incredible detail - just came across it in research. So I could be off here. :-D User:King4057 (COI Disclosure on User Page) 00:47, 10 May 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for your note here. I actually starting helping out on that page at the request of someone else and my lack of expertise in that area made it hard to evaluate those edits made. I can have a careful look and perhaps re-instate some of the removed content. - Ahunt (talk) 11:36, 10 May 2012 (UTC)

Illegal use of company logo in userboxes[edit]

You should probably stop using the google based userboxes YOU are using, and then you might need to do something about these... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:UBX/Chromium http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:SteveSims/Userboxes/Firefox http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:ZeroOne/Userboxes/User_browser:Opera

In fact, while you are in the mood, you should probably go through en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Userboxes/Software and tell the hundreds of other userbox creators the same thing as you are telling me. MrZoolook (talk) 23:27, 2 June 2012 (UTC)

Before you accuse other people of hypocrisy you should do your homework. If you actually checked the files for the Google boxes and the Opera letter "O" you point out above you will see that those logos are not copyrighted, because they consist only of text and thus fail to meet the threshold of originality required for copyrighting. Likewise the Chromium and Firefox logos you point out above are both freely licenced. All the other logos used on the software boxes page are all regularly checked and they all comply. That contrasts with the copyrighted logo you have tried to put into a user box multiple times in contravention of Wikipedia policy and US copyright law. You can apologize anytime. - Ahunt (talk) 11:17, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
The Opera logo I pointed to does not 'consist only of text' there is a shadow underneath. Additionally, since it consists of more then just a single letter, and in its entirity looks an exact copy of http://media.opera.com/media/images/icon/Opera_512x512.png, it is likely copyright owned by Opera. You are free to delete that anytime. MrZoolook (talk) 12:40, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
If you cared to check it, the licence on that image file specifies "Since a single letter in raster format cannot be copyrighted, this image is in the public domain" and "This image consists entirely of a raster rendering (e.g. PNG) of characters from one or more typefaces. As such, it is ineligible for copyright in the United States and therefore is in the public domain." It would be more productive if you just admit you were wrong, promise to check the licencing on any image before you try to use it in a user box and just move on, having learned something from this. - Ahunt (talk) 17:14, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
Complete with shadow, ergo NOT a simple letter. All I have 'learned' from this is that some things are overlooked, others are vehemently denied, and yet others are in a state of limbo. *shrug* For instance, you just stated that a single letter is allowed since it is declared PD. Entire words would therefore NOT be considered the same correct? MrZoolook (talk) 21:56, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
Since you are down to WP:IDIDNTHEARTHAT it is time to move along. - Ahunt (talk) 22:22, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
Actually, we are down to you (and I presume Wiki in general) saying that a simple typefaced raster characters are allowed, then allowing simple typefaced raster characters with extra artifacts. I am just wondering where the "extra artifacts" stop being allowed and start to constitute infringement? Thanks for not clearing the issue up! MrZoolook (talk) 02:23, 26 June 2012 (UTC)
The tags you are quoting from on the letter "O" image are very specific cases and very specific policies. There are much more general principles in US copyright law as reflected in tags as found on files like this one, which says much more generally: "This image only consists of simple geometric shapes and/or text. It does not meet the threshold of originality needed for copyright protection, and is therefore in the public domain." As indicated I am not a copyright lawyer, but my understanding is that simple shapes and text of any kind, yes even with shadows serifs or any other embellishments, does not come even close to the level of originality to be copyrighted. - Ahunt (talk) 10:44, 26 June 2012 (UTC)
MrZoolook, the three images you mention in your first post are all hosted on the Commons. I would suggest that you take your concerns to Commons:Commons:Village pump/Copyright and ask there if the files are a problem. Or you could ask at Wikipedia talk:FAQ/Copyright.

Buffalo[edit]

Hi Ahunt; re this edit, today's RCAF is the same entity as the 1975-2011 CF Air Command so it is the same thing, there's no point in linking twice to the same article. Referring to today's RCAF by its 1975-2011 name is incorrect because it was simply renamed, not disbanded : last year's name change did not reinstate the original RCAF (for which the link would probably be "History of the Royal Canadian Air Force", though there is no point in linking it considering the current RCAF article summarizes the pre-1968, the post-1975 RCAFs and the mess in between). Cheers, CharlieEchoTango (contact) 11:40, 9 June 2012 (UTC)

Well then we should list the name that the CC-115 served the longest under, which would be Air Command. - Ahunt (talk) 12:12, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
But the current name for Air Command is RCAF; it doesn't make sense to call an entity by its former name, it's like calling AT&T Cingular or Ottawa Bytown. If you want to clarify that the Buffs were purchased under the pre-unification RCAF, which is a different entity, then I don't really have an objection, but it should link to "History of the Royal Canadian Air Force", not to the same article... Best regards, CharlieEchoTango (contact) 12:23, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
Well I think that the "Operational history" section covers that adequately, although it should mention the re-naming, which I will add. Otherwise it is probably too minor an issue to spend any more time on. - Ahunt (talk) 12:30, 9 June 2012 (UTC)

Dart Skycycle[edit]

I would like to discuss the Dart Skycycle wiki page. I saw that you removed my edits stating that Emerson Stevens was the actual designer of the ultralight, which is the truth. You state "I have become rather fastidious about references in Wikipedia. For anyone who doesn't think it is important for Wikipedia to be scrupulously referenced, I suggest that you read this CBC article and this Globe & Mail article. A lack of references can cause real damage in some cases". The only problem with the citation you used to create this page is that it is incorrect. Bob did not design the Skycycle. I have paperwork documenting Emerson's design process of the skycycle. If you would take the time, you could call Greg Dart, Bob's son who lives in [REDACTED], and validate my statements. Unfortunately, Bob passed away a few years ago. I do not recall my wiki username but you have my IP address. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.99.174.224 (talk) 02:38, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) Wikipedia operates on the basis of verifiabiliy, not truth. If you cannot verify something through reliable sources, it doesn't matter if it is 'the truth', Wikipedia must report what is in the reliable sources. Using your paperwork, that has not been published by a reliable source, or calling someone for information, would be original research, which is forbidden. (Also I have redacted some of your post on the basis of it being identifying information of a living person). - The Bushranger One ping only 02:43, 13 June 2012 (UTC)
The cited reference Cliche, Andre: Ultralight Aircraft Shopper's Guide 8th Edition, page B-53. Cybair Limited Publishing, 2001. ISBN 0-9680628-1-4 says "The availability of the Dart Skycycle has been announced recently. In fact, it is not a new ultralight, it has first been introduced back in 1985. Production ceased for a while until its designer Robert Dart, decided to put it back on the market." Now it is possible that the author of the book is wrong in this regard, but as noted above, we need a reliable reference to change this. Phoning someone and asking them is not a reliable reference and is specifically prohibited as a citable source as it is original research and cannot be verified by anyone. If you can show a published reliable source to change this then we can change it, otherwise we have to go with what the one published reliable source says. - Ahunt (talk) 10:41, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

for the Wikiwings for "Drag Polar", as it again after an excursion through another name. I noticed the absence of cover whilst writing up a particular aircraft; it was quite fun to do, partly because it reminded me that I was a physicist. I hope one day Wikipedia comes up with a better maths editor: Latek, as implemented here with oversized characters and lack of context awareness, seems to my (reasonably experienced) mathematical eye to isolate the algebra from the text when they should both be part of a continuous narrative flow. I'll not hold my breath, though. Cheers,TSRL (talk) 09:29, 24 June 2012 (UTC)

Is your problem that there are comparisons, or that they are currently unsourced. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 199.223.125.132 (talk) 21:16, 26 June 2012 (UTC)

Basically on Wikipedia you can only do a comparison of things like different aircraft types if you have a single ref that actually compares them and you cite it. You can't take one ref about one aircraft type and another ref about another aircraft type and come up with your own comparison like that as it runs afoul of WP:SYNTHESIS and WP:OR. - Ahunt (talk) 21:20, 26 June 2012 (UTC)

Need assistance with WP: Harassment[edit]

Posting of personal information WP:OUTING Posting another editor's personal information is harassment, unless that person voluntarily had posted his or her own information, or links to such information, on Wikipedia. Personal information includes legal name, . . . information is accurate or not. Posting such information about another editor is an unjustifiable and uninvited invasion of privacy and may place that editor at risk of harm outside of their activities on Wikipedia. This applies to the personal information of both editors and non-editors. It also applies in the case of an editor who has requested a change in username, but whose old identifying marks can still be found. Any edit that "outs" someone must be reverted promptly, followed by a request for Oversight to delete that edit from Wikipedia permanently.

I think you need to go through the procedure to rename an account at Wikipedia:Changing username, rather than editing with two accounts, which is not allowed at Wikipedia:Sock puppetry. I am not an admin or a bureaucrat (required to do that), so I can't do that for you. - Ahunt (talk) 21:41, 11 July 2012 (UTC)
Hi, as the accused I would mention that I have just updated the above request in the light of recent activity - see the bit marked Update. A while ago you were one of several editors who could find no fault with the notion that a foreplane is sometimes called a "horizontal stabiliser" and that this usage is borne out by reputable references. I don't know if you feel able to help enforce this apparent consensus among editors, but Stodieck's latest contrary edits may be found here and here. My apologies for bothering you but it seems my efforts are not being accepted, rather - if you check the edit comments - I am being openly accused of vandalism. — Cheers, Steelpillow (Talk) 19:15, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

Wirraway in fiction[edit]

G'day from Oz; I've been trying for ages to find a RS for the Wirraway in The Thin Red Line. The movie actually used a Wirraway and a T-6, both masquerading as Dauntlesses; and a DC-3 from a museum in Mareeba near Cairns in Queensland. I remember visiting the museum in about October '97; the DC-3 wasn't there, but a few minutes after leaving I saw it on the road on the back of a truck - I had to pull off the road to give it room to pass. I knew Owen and Phil, and flew wih Owen in 'WRX - the second-noisiest aircraft I've ever been in and bloody cold too. Cheers YSSYguy (talk) 11:40, 20 July 2012 (UTC)

Recovery email / extra security and Support sections in Gmail article[edit]

Thanks for changing my tech. writer writing style to passive in the Recovery email / extra security section of the Gmail article.

Re. your deletion of the section on official support for Gmail: As far as I know, this official support is a unique new feature for free public web mail—but have you heard of other webmail competitors like Yahoo or Hotmail providing such official support in forums? There are always users who say, "I've deleted my account and lost all my mail and contacts, can I get it all back?", or "I've forgotten my password/My account has been hacked, what can I do?" And now, for the first time it seems, people can get answers and help from Google. I believe that this support is new and unique among free webmail providers—but have you heard otherwise? LittleBen (talk) 15:00, 20 July 2012 (UTC)

PS: On a completely unrelated topic—aircraft—there's a reasonably big (for New Zealand, that is) aviation museum in Auckland, New Zealand, and a smaller one in Christchurch.

You seem to have come into a conversation in the middle, ignorant of prior exchanges.

It was Guy Macon that suggested to me that I should create a reddit subreddit for my opinions. What you see as an insult, is merely me suggesting to Guy Macon that he take his own advice.

Tri-State Warbird Museum[edit]

Holy [swear word redacted]! - My initial reaction to the edits you made on the above page

Pardon my French but your edits to the Tri-State Warbird Museum page really surprised me! I start updating an article that hasn't been touched in 2 years and [counting me] it has 2 people working on it in a single day! I can only assume such a quick reaction comes from someone (i.e. you) having the page on their watch list.

Lest you get the wrong idea, I appreciate the help. I happen to have recently started volunteering there, and I decided to help flesh out the page so that it was less of a stub. I started working on it earlier today with a simple, unfinished list of aircraft - with the intent of coming back later in the day to keep working - and lo and behold some of my work has been done for me!

I intend to keep working on the page for now and the recent future, and any help would be appreciated --Noha307 (talk) 22:12, 2 August 2012 (UTC)

Nice to hear from you. Yes indeed it was on my watchlist and your edits popped it up on my list. I had a look and saw it needed some refs and links, so I added them. Collaboration works! Sure please do keep adding material and references and I'll drop by and see if I can add anything to your edits. Here is a thought if you are at the museum - how about a couple of photos, like the outside and inside of the building or at least a couple of the aircraft exhibits? That would add a lot to the article. Let me know if you need help uploading them to commons and I'll provide some pointers. - Ahunt (talk) 22:37, 2 August 2012 (UTC)
I have added some notes on the article's talk page, I as a current volunteer I happen to know the correct information, however I cannot add it to the article if/until I have sources to back it up. I felt the information is better served on the article's talk page than yours, because other people may not read it here.
As to your suggestion for photos, I'm not sure whether I'll follow through with that or not. I did, however, want to thank you for the suggestion as wells as the offer to help with uploading them - I have never done so, and your offer to help with the process goes a long way toward making me more willing to do so. --Noha307 (talk) 00:50, 3 August 2012 (UTC)

Auxiliary Power Unit[edit]

Sorry to bother you again, but I have something else you might be able to help with. While browsing the C-124 page I came across a claim to being the first American military aircraft to have an APU. I remembered that the YFM-1 page made a conflicting claim so I went to the source: the APU page. That brought up even more conflicting claims and well... To make a long story short (you can see the long story on the APU talk page) there are so many conflicting claims as to having the first APU it's a nightmare. I thought you might be able to help. Man, was I right. I seem to have coincidentally just talked to one of only 6 people on all of Wikipedia on the aircraft engines sub-project! What are the odds!?!

BMW M2B15‎[edit]

The BMW M2B15‎ is a motorcycle engine, BMW's very first one in fact. After WW1 the company was forced to abandon aircraft production so turned its attention to motorcycles. Until yesterday the article had long been tagged as an aircraft engine as well. Knowing your interest in all things aviation, I wondered if you could find any evidence that the engine was indeed used in any aircraft, or whether that was a mistake and it really was just a motorcycle engine? Thanks, --Biker Biker (talk) 03:44, 12 August 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for your question. Chances are that it was used as both. Today quite a number of BMW motorcycle engines have been adapted for use in aircraft, so it probably happened in the 1920s as well. The photo used in the article BMW M2B15‎ (File:BMW M2 B15.JPG) was taken at the Deutsches Museum Flugwerft Schleissheim and the museum website lists it amongst their aircraft engines. The book Aircraft Piston Engines 1910-1919 lists it as an aircraft engine. I hope that helps. - Ahunt (talk) 14:47, 12 August 2012 (UTC)
That's great thanks. I think that proves it was used for aircraft, even though it was designed for motorcycle. --Biker Biker (talk) 18:21, 12 August 2012 (UTC)
Scratch what I just said. General Books LLC is a Wikipedia article reprinter. If you look at the text on the B&N website page given above it is lifted directly from a Wikipedia article. I think the question is whether inclusion in the museum's collection is enough to prove it should be listed as an aircraft engine, as opposed to a motorcycle engine which happened to be used once on an aircraft, which as you know happens to modern BMW boxer engines in some microlight/kit aircraft. For now I would prefer to err on the side of caution and keep it out of the aircraft categories & templates. --Biker Biker (talk) 18:28, 12 August 2012 (UTC)
It can always be added back in if a definitive use on an aircraft can be found. - Ahunt (talk) 18:39, 12 August 2012 (UTC)

You can sign up by adding your name at Wikipedia:WikiProject Aircraft/Participants Then you might want to add Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Aircraft to your watch list as this is where much of the background discussion occurs. You may also want to watch Wikipedia:New articles (Aircraft) as this is where newly created articles get listed for peer review. Having a look over these new articles is a great way to get a feel for how things are done on the project and also most new articles need reviewing anyway. If you have any questions you can leave me a note or post at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Aircraft, either way you will get a quick response. - Ahunt (talk) 22:16, 18 August 2012 (UTC)

Sopwith Bee[edit]

No, it was Mason as you thought, Lewis is British Aircraft 1809-1914. An autopilot malfunction. And thanks for the cleaning up, not just on this article but all the other articles I've created that you've done the same for.TheLongTone (talk) 18:00, 19 August 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for confirming that! No problem on the editing - that is how it all works, we write, we check each other and build an encyclopedia! Collaboration works! - Ahunt (talk) 23:24, 19 August 2012 (UTC)

Filezilla controversy references[edit]

I noticed you added back a "citation needed" tag onto Filezilla>Convtroversy, since an open wiki does not qualify as realiable source. In this particular case, the software has no formal documentation, and the wiki is all that exists (it's also maintained by the developers). The only actual way to verify the paragraph's claims, is to download the software, and verify yourself that this feature still exists - or alternatly, I could link to the source as a reference, since the filezilla's source is quite irrefutable evidence that a feature exists. This does, however, sound rather extreme. How do you propose we solve the current lack of qualified citation? Wouldn't a software official wiki qualify enough?

Yes it would do, except it is an open wiki - anyone can edit it, so it isn't reliable. - Ahunt (talk) 18:14, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

new page advice if you could?[edit]

Page is List of racing airplanes Wondering if there is a proceedure for adding the aviation project infobox on the talk page?
As the creator does someone else have to add it or can I do it - and are there other pages needing editting to add a page to the project.
In short is -> {{WPAVIATION|class=list|Aircraft-project=yes}} all that is required? thanks, NiD.29 (talk) 05:41, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

Yup that is all that is required and you can add it, although I'll do it for you! You can also add it to Wikipedia:New articles (Aircraft) under "miscellaneous articles". - Ahunt (talk) 10:06, 24 August 2012 (UTC)
(TPS) does List of racing airplanes also include aeroplanes! should it be List of racing aircraft? MilborneOne (talk) 11:13, 24 August 2012 (UTC)
Thanks! Of course aeroplanes and airplanes and planes (and already has some, though by no means all)- just not balloons which should have their own list otherwise I would have avoided the controversy and used "aircraft". Not really sure about sailplanes and helicopters but I suspect they are few and far between. I was anticipapting the list being dominated by a lot of one-offs of US origin (still only have a small fraction of them - most lack pages) NiD.29 (talk) 16:45, 24 August 2012 (UTC)
Looks like it has been moved! List of racing aircraft - Ahunt (talk) 23:07, 24 August 2012 (UTC)
