Squiggly brackets[edit]

Odds and ends[edit]

Since I've got the weekend off I'm looking at all the things I've got pending. Do you think it's worth reviewing items like this Outpost Snipe Point 175 Special Armored Brigade for a C class?Keith-264 (talk) 09:07, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Gday Keith, these look in fairly good shape so far but are obviously fairly brief. To me Point 175 is easily a C but probably needs an aftermath section to pull it up to a B. Special Armored Brigade is very succinct but looks like a C also - any idea of the casualties they sustained, also perhaps add some detail on its formation and initial training etc? This info stuck me as not being present (although potentially its not available in the sources you have). Outpost Snipe is probably the one needing the most work - I think it may only be a Start-class at the moment, perhaps if you have got some free time you might consider adding a background / prelude section and an aftermath at least as this would provide a bit of context for the action described? Hope this helps. Anotherclown (talk) 11:17, 11 July 2015 (UTC)
Greetings, I cited the articles as best I could with the OH and the NZ and A OHs but can't do much more with what I've got. I moved BCS to Babini Group to be consistent with Maletti Group and found a little more in Macksey about its last ride but I fear that the deficiencies need Italian sources to remedy. Thanks for the suggestions, I might find more about Point 175 in the OH.Keith-264 (talk) 12:29, 11 July 2015 (UTC)
Added aftermath to Point 175 as suggested, good enough for B?Keith-264 (talk) 17:18, 11 July 2015 (UTC)
I'd say Point 175 is pretty close - Is there a ref for the "division remnants" table? Also Mario Balotta is mentioned in the infobox as the Italian commander but isn't mentioned in the article. Could this be included in the text with a reference somewhere? Likewise with the casualties and losses (mentioned in the infobox but don't appear in the article and aren't referenced). I'll have a look over the other two articles again shortly. Anotherclown (talk) 21:09, 11 July 2015 (UTC)
OK now?Keith-264 (talk) 07:22, 12 July 2015 (UTC)
Howdy, yes that looks good to me. I've updated the assessment now. Anotherclown (talk) 10:32, 12 July 2015 (UTC)

reversion of % of French Union troops at DBP[edit]

I don't care, but regardless of the citation the numbers can't add up to 10%. That would mean 17k out of 175k French Union troops. There is no way to make that number work. If I find my copy of the Davidson book I guess I can try to harmonize the numbers. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 108.31.242.232 (talk) 20:13, 14 July 2015

As I said in my edit summary [1] you will need to provide an appropriate inline citation that supports your contention. At any rate the main issue I have with your edit is that you did not provide an inline citation and that it did not maintain text–source integrity. Regardless, given that there is currently a different figure in the article and it appears to be referenced to what is I assume a reliable source (Davidson) it is entirely possible that two reliable sources disagree on the point in question (i.e. Falls and Davidson). In that case we don't just delete one set of figures we generally include both with citations and allow the reader to decide. Anotherclown (talk) 01:19, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

A-Class for WP:AUS[edit]

Hi mate, I noticed you updating some WP:AUS assessments with the articles' MilHist A-Class rating. Naturally I think this makes sense but was wondering if you could recall when/whether WP:AUS had formally agreed to partner MilHist this way (as I recall Ships and Aviation did)? It's apropos at the moment because there's been discussion going on at the Australian Wikipedians' notice board about starting an ACR process there (meant to let you and Rupert know in any case) and I mentioned that a reciprocal arrangement between MilHist and AUS ACR would be good and didn't think there was one as yet -- but perhaps there is? Cheers, Ian Rose (talk) 13:23, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

Gday Ian. Thanks for letting me know but actually that discussion at WP:AUS was why I updated the assessments - it was mentioned in the thread about implementing their own A class review and I believe it is now in the documentation here Wikipedia:WikiProject_Australia/Assessment/A-Class_Review. That said prior to the discussion at WP:AUS there seems to have been approx. 40 + MILHIST A class articles that were also rated A for WP:AUS so I think at some point there was the belief around MILHIST among some editors at least that this agreement had already occurred (I seem to recall thinking this for many years but never really seeing anything in black and white - nor really ever looking for it though). I think YellowMonkey *might* of mentioned it once somewhere around the early years of my involvement but unfortunately he has long since left so I cannot confirm it (and its possible my memory is way off at any rate and I have just libeled an innocent). Not much help, sorry. Anotherclown (talk) 08:25, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
Ha, so that's why you did it -- did seem a bit of a funny coincidence... I think the reciprocal arrangement note made it into the AUS ACR draft because I suggested it would be a good idea in the noticeboard discussion -- a bit chicken-and-egg I think, or wishing something into existence! I wasn't sure that the draft (and the arrangement) was considered as ratified by the AUS project, but OTOH no-one's objected so perhaps this will be the black-and-white pronouncement we're looking for... :-) Cheers, Ian Rose (talk) 08:36, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

C-17 number[edit]

Hello @FOX 52: - Definitely 8 at this stage (although the upcoming Defence White Paper is meant to make a decision on the possibility of a further two to equal 10). According to a media release today from the Minister for Defence the 8th C-17A is due to be delivered in "late 2015" - pls see here for details [2]. Hope this helps.

2015 GA Cup - Round 2[edit]

WikiProject Good Articles's 2015 GA Cup - Round 2
Symbol support vote.svg

Greetings, GA Cup competitors!

Wednesday saw the end of Round 1. The Rambling Man, who was eliminated during the first round in our last competition, earned an impressive 513 points, reviewed twice as many articles (26) as any other competitor. It was a tight race for second for first-time competitors BenLinus1214 and Tomandjerry211, who finished second and third with 243 and 224 points, respectively. Close behind was Wugapodes, who earned 205 points.

The change in our points system had an impact on scoring. It was easier to earn higher points, although the key to success didn't change from last time, which was choosing articles with older nomination dates. For example, most of the articles The Rambling Man reviewed were worth 18 points in the nomination date category, and he benefited from it. BenLinus1214 reviewed the longest article, A Simple Plan (at 26,536 characters, or 4,477 words), the 1994 film starring Bill Paxton, Billy Bob Thornton, and Bridget Fonda and directed by Sam Raimi, and earned all possible 5 points in that category.

After feedback from our participants, the judges slightly changed the rule about review length this time out. Shorter reviews are now allowed, as long as reviewers give nominators an opportunity to address their feedback. Shorter reviews are subject to the judges' discretion; the judges will continue their diligence as we continue the competition.

Despite having fewer contestants at the beginning of Round 1 than last time, 132 articles were reviewed, far more than the 117 articles that were reviewed in Round 1 of the inaugural GA Cup. All of us involved should be very proud of what we've accomplished thus far. The judges are certain that Round 2 will be just as successful.

16 contestants have moved onto Round 2 and have been randomly placed in 4 groups of 4, with the top 2 in each pool progressing to Round 3, as well as the top participant ("9th place") of all remaining competitors. Round 2 has already begun and will end on August 29 at 23:59:59 UTC. Information about Round 2 and the pools can be found here.

Good luck and remember to have fun!

Cheers from Dom497, Figureskatingfan, 3family6 and Jaguar, and MrWooHoo.

Battle of Malvern Hill FAC[edit]

Hello Anotherclown,

Dropping by to tell you that I've nominated Battle of Malvern Hill for FAC here: Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Battle of Malvern Hill/archive2. You commented at the MILHIST review, I thought you might be interested in dropping a line there. Cheers, --ceradon (talkedits) 20:42, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

Information[edit]

My great uncle Colonel Edgar Nicholas Glotzbach commanded the first brigade at the battle of Suoi Bong Trang. I have a copy of the official report of his actions in the battle and was wondering if you had any interest in it. You seem to have extensive experience with editing/writing about Australian Military operations. Even though he is an American Colonel and it's an American report I was wondering if you would be interested. Thanks, ShadowHawk555 (talk) 20:50, 18 August 2015 (UTC)

G'day, I appreciated you making the offer. Realistically though I'm not looking at expanding that article any time soon so I wouldn't want you to go to the trouble of arranging to send it to me and then me not end up using it. That said is there a link to it already available on the internet somewhere or is it a hardcopy? If it is already available electronically it might be suitable for inclusion in the "external links" section of the article as it sounds relevant (and would probably be of considerable interests to readers looking for more information about the event - certainly I frequently look at similar reports when doing research etc). If its not available on the internet already have you considered arranging to do so? We could then link it as I suggested as long as it meets the requirements of WP:External links etc. Kind regards.

We can't have a little pool of Australianized Vietnam articles. In ictu oculi (talk) 08:45, 21 August 2015 (UTC)

Hello - thank you for the link but the heading clearly says that its "proposed". And it hasn't been edited since March 2014???? Like I said there is no policy that mandates the use of these non-English characters. Anotherclown (talk) 08:48, 21 August 2015 (UTC)
It has been implemented, why do you think your articles are the only ones at odds with the rest of the encyclopedia? In ictu oculi (talk) 08:58, 21 August 2015 (UTC)
You may have chosen to implement it but has the proposal received community endorsement and become policy? According to the link you provided it has not. Regardless, you will notice that most articles on Wikipedia do not follow the exact same format with many variations of layout, just as there are several variations of English, date / time format, etc all of which is considered perfectly acceptable. Unless you have a policy that supports your changes then I'd say your continued efforts to standardise these articles is potentially disruptive. Pls do not bother posting anything on this talk page again unless it is a link that demonstrates that your prosed guideline is now a policy. Otherwise in the absence of any evidence to the contrary WP:DIACRITIC makes it clear that there is no requirement to adopt non-English characters. In fact I've made the point to you on several occasions that there are a number of good reasons not to do so (but that is another issue). Anotherclown (talk) 09:10, 21 August 2015 (UTC)
In fact this sort of behaviour has been specifically considered by the Arbitration Committee before at Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration/Jguk which found that "When either of two styles are acceptable it is inappropriate for a Wikipedia editor to change from one style to another unless there is some substantial reason for the change." It further found that that doesn't include simply implementing one's "preferred style", although it is acceptable to make such changes to ensure the internal consistency of an article. Anotherclown (talk) 10:03, 21 August 2015 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) As AC notes, there's no requirement to use diacritics in articles. English language books on Vietnam rarely use them in my experience. Nick-D (talk) 10:35, 21 August 2015 (UTC)

NGAWW UCP[edit]

I don't believe that having a section on the UCP (esp in this instance) is undue weight. The UCP of the NGAWW is one of a kind, a "commando"-type colourpatch with a distinctly "non-commando" flash, that displays immediately the special and "independent" nature of the unit, outside common regulation. It is also of distinct historical import, and if working on the assumption that "other" articles do no include them, I think it is more a case of "shouldn't they include them too"! Cheers, Grant.. Enderwigginau (talk) 11:51, 21 August 2015 (UTC)

Howdy, all UCPs are "one of a kind" and I honestly don't believe a detailed and to be quite frank esoteric explanation of the individual aspects of the NGAWW's patch would be of significant interest to the average reader (perhaps to a collector or someone with an interest in this area sure, or maybe to a relative). Given the amount of detail that could still be written about far more important aspects of this unit's operational service I think a whole section on the patch is too much. Placing it in a note is a way of retaining the info but reducing its prominence to focus on other more significant information (hence my comment about WP:UNDUE). Remember this isn't a book about the topic, it is meant to be a concise encyclopedic article about the unit. Would an article about this unit in the Oxford Companion to Australian Military History (or some similar standard of publication) include detailed information about its UCP? I'd say it would not. Pls don't take these comments as being disrespectful of the importance I suspect you place on the insignia though, they are not intended to be (I've worn a uniform for a few years myself). Anyway its not a big issue for me so if you still don't agree with this pls just say so and I'll restore the text to its own section (or pls do so yourself), albeit that I will do so with the stated concern that I think it ultimately detracts from the overall tone of the article. All the best. Anotherclown (talk) 12:44, 21 August 2015 (UTC)
No problem sir! Let's leave it as is for now. As noted elsewhere, I believe it's key to any unit ID - and many older encyclopaedias would definitely have described and noted it, as they regularly do for particular corp and unit badges. At some point I'll have to buy you a drink to thank you for all the hard work you've put into the article - only if you're on the southside though hehehehe Enderwigginau (talk) 02:18, 22 August 2015 (UTC)
Just noting this [and traditions] Enderwigginau (talk) 02:23, 22 August 2015 (UTC)
No problem at all, the exploits of these men caught my attention and I was surprised (perhaps a little embarrassed) that I'd never heard of the unit until you started the article. Actually I do agree with you regarding the value of including more info in our unit articles about their UCPs (and any other important insignia etc - as long as its referenced of cse), as some of our articles are indeed lacking this and I can see that some readers would find it of interest. I guess the main concern I have is just the amount of room we devote to it. Ack your example of 1 CDO, but it is still of fairly low quality and needs a lot of work (pls note most of it isn't referenced and it is still rated as "Start / C Class" depending on the project). There are better examples of articles that we could use to help us decide how to provide this info to the readers, specifically articles that have gone through a formal review process like Wikipedia:Good articles. There are actually quite a few Australian unit articles that have been developed to a good standard so far, some of which do provide details about the UCP. One example is 2/3rd Battalion (Australia) which provides the info as part of the narrative, rather than having an individual section (and in sparing detail), and I'd say that that potentially might be a model for us to adopt and would be supportive of that if that is something you'd like to do.
