Donald Henry Burns[edit]

I've added the "{{prod}}" template to the article Donald Henry 'Bob' Burns, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but I don't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and I've explained why in the deletion notice (see also Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not and Wikipedia:Importance). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia, or, if you disagree, discuss the issues raised at Talk:Donald Henry 'Bob' Burns. If you remove the {{dated prod}} template, the article will not be deleted, but note that it may still be sent to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. I accept your case and so I will just propose to be deleted, this will depend of the consensus reached. --Francisco Valverde 17:48, 7 April 2006 (UTC)

I think I will remove that, Francisco, though it seemed a little unethical to me to do so myself. I've been working on the article, and will continue to do so. At the moment, i'm searching the web for other references. Just located this one: http://agham.asti.dost.gov.ph/1998/5th/fun/peejay/body.htm. Okay. I'll try out the signature procedure...another first, for me.

FYI http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Donald_Henry_%27Bob%27_Burns updated. I notice that your earlier work on geocities is now only accessible via the way back machine. This is a great shame. all the best.ME 89.16.175.187 (talk) 12:41, 28 March 2010 (UTC)


Your edits to Supermarine Spitfire[edit]

The instructions and directions for where to ask questions if you don't understand how the template works are at the top of the list of specs. If the fields are left blank, they will simply not show up in the output. Deleting them creates extra work for users wanting to expand the specs. Furthermore, the WP:Air manual of style dictates only one set of specifications per page, for the most notable variant which was most definitely not the Mk.XII. Therefore, these specifications have been removed. - Emt147 Burninate! 00:10, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

Bermuda Sea Cadet Corps[edit]

Excellent :) I added Template:Naval cadets to it and added in the Bermuda link and flag. Easy template to edit. if you add any more Naval Cadet Organisations please add the template (and edit it to include them). It adds to the Category:Naval Cadet Organisations automatically Fiddle Faddle 21:30, 27 May 2006 (UTC)

Aye, Aye[edit]

Right you are. I won't be adding any more Naval Cadet Organisations, though I'll be adding an army cadet one (Bermuda Cadet Corps).

Your edits to Bermuda[edit]

Hi, please see my discussion notes, under the header "Black Bermudians" so that we can discuss the passage on demographics. In short, I think a passage in there should be referenced before we can put it into the article. --D'Olivier 12:50, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

My Edits[edit]

Hallo. What do you think needs to be referenced, what type of reference would you accept, and to what end do you think it needs to be referenced, and how would the reference achieve that end?

Fair use rationale for Image:Royal Artillery Cap Badge.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Royal Artillery Cap Badge.jpg. The image description page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Fact tagging[edit]

Kindly cease removing fact tags without actually providing support to the associated statement. Note I'm also going to remove the padding you've added to the SAS intro, it can go in later in the article, the intro is not the place.ALR 18:06, 16 November 2006 (UTC)

Did you put it in later in the article, or did you just remove it. It doesn't need a fact tag. Any book on special forces, or on the SAS specifically, will say the same.
I've removed it, please look at the section further down the article and make your changes, they didn't suit a wholesale cut and paste. The point requires substantiation from a reliable source, at present it is merely opinion, and that applies to many of the books on the Regiment as well.ALR 18:19, 16 November 2006 (UTC)

What would a reliable source be, then? If you mean an official government statement, that's not likely to exist. That the SAS has been the model for other forces certainly is part of historical record....the information you refer to further down the page aptly illustrates that. It's quality may be a subjective statement, but it's role modelling certainly isn't.

Bermuda Airport[edit]

I just wanted to thank you for your additions to Bermuda International Airport. They really enhance the page and it's good to finally have some more information on this airport. I made a couple grammar edits to it, but excuse me if I am in the wrong. I also removed the stub templates because they are not needed now. Thanks. NcSchu 20:50, 20 November 2006 (UTC)


Bermuda Airport[edit]

You're very welcome. I'd put in pages on the airfield's previous lives as US Army/USAAF, USAF, USN bases, and on the other air stations in Bermuda, and eventually got round to adding to this one. I've trillions of pics as I was an airport policeman there, and I'll get around to tacking more in, perhaps. Aodhdubh 20:56, 20 November 2006 (UTC)

What is your source for Sea Venture construction info?[edit]

I really enjoyed your additions to the Sea Venture entry. May I ask your exact source of the information on the ship's probable construction in Aldeburgh in 1608 for £1,500? I am doing a research project on the Sea Venture and have never come across that information and would very much like to know the source. I see you list P. M. Wright's Sea Venture Story as a reference. Is that the source? I have never seen that book (just one library has it in the U.S.). Thanks very much. Seastories 10:12, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

source[edit]

Hallo. Feel free to write me at my e-mail.

Source is almoste certainly that pamphmlet, though I'll have to check. I've had a lot on my plate since writing that, but it's the only publication I remember checking. I have my own copy, and I'll happily scan it and email it to you (it's small). A late friend of mine wrote a biography on Sir George Somers that you may also find useful, though I'm not sure if it's still in print (Sir George Somers, a Man and His Time, by David F. Raine, Pompano publications). I have a copy, but it's too large to scan and e-mail, I think. I can point you in the right direction to finding a copy, though...

Source for this image?[edit]

Image:Bermuda_sloop_race.jpg could you please add what source you scanned to create this digital image? It looks like it was scanned from a book. Also, what does "(E M Gosling)" mean? Thanks - Davandron | Talk 14:09, 16 February 2007 (UTC)


Source[edit]

The image was indeed scanned from an out-of-print book, "Sailing In Bermuda: Sail Racing in the Nineteenth Century", by J.C. Arnell. It covers the development of sail racing in Bermuda in the 19th Century (which involved racing working sloops on the weekends), and which gave rise to the development of scaled down, dedicated racers known as Bermuda Fitted dinghies. The author of the book collected photographs from many sources, which he credited. E M Gosling was either the original 19th Century photographer, or provided the print used in the book. That wasn't made clear in the book, though the latter is more likely.

Aodhdubh 04:01, 17 February 2007 (UTC)

Is Classic Boat article used with permission?[edit]

Can you link to the text on the sloop foundation where it says this article is used with permission? It looks great, just want to make sure its not a copyright problem. Thanks - Davandron | Talk 05:48, 17 February 2007 (UTC)

Erm?[edit]

Where it is used here with permission, or where it is used there with permission? I'll have a look, but I'm busy writing a Bermuda Fitted Dinghy article, just at the moment....

Aodhdubh 06:39, 17 February 2007 (UTC)

Nevermind, sorry... :^) I see the link now on the front page of the bermuda sloop website, so I assume its with permission. - Davandron | Talk 14:55, 17 February 2007 (UTC)

No worries. I assumed so, also.

puzzled...[edit]

Hi Aodhdub, I've seen the interesting Image:Bermudian sloop-of-war Flying Fish.jpg that you've uploaded. I'd like to use it in an article, but I'm pretty confused by the caption. You seem to be calling it both a Bermudian sloop and a Baltimore clipper. Could you clarify? And possibly also with respect to the Navy history? Thanks a lot, Ibn Battuta 03:33, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

Quick reply[edit]

Hallo...sure, but I must be brief, at the moment. The Navy began buying up Bermudian sloops from trade (note the Sting, which became HMS Pickle), as well as having some built to its requirements by Bermudian builders. As it was making a lot of effort at introducing standardised designs as classess, the Flying Fish design resulted partly from the desire for a commonality in these small ships. There was a lot of undeserved displeasure in the Navy with many of the Bermuda sloops due to their small size and lack of armament, and some scathing reports. These were unjustified as most were never intended to be fighting vessels, merely communications vessels, relying on their speed and maneouvrability both to quickly deliver communications, and to evade enemy vessels. In fact, the first three built for the navy (Hunder, Dash, and Driver) were built as fighting vessels, and were larger and better armed than vessels like the Pickle and the Whiting. There was some complaint that some of the shortcomings of later Bermudian-built vessels oredered by the navy were due to the Navy's attempts to design its own Bermuda sloop and have the Bermudian builders build it. It was suggested that, in future, the Navy out to simply issue specifications and allow Bermudian builders to create their own designs. Partly due to the misplaced dissatisfaction in some quarters with Bermudian designs, and partly as a result of the success of American privateers, it was decided to copy a captured Baltimore schooner which had had some success, the Flying Fish (the design of the American vessels had been strongly influenced by Bermudian traditions and boat builders in the preceding century, but were generally optimised for shallower, coastal waters) and the drawings made up from this vessel were issued to builders in both Bermuda and England. That's me writing from the top of my head, but I'll do a bit of reading up and amend/expand this later.

Aodhdubh 05:45, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

Hi Aodhdubh, thanks for your reply. That's really interesting! As for Flying Fish, I understand it was influenced by Bermudian sloops, but was not actually one itself; the boats built after its specifications, however, were built by Bermudian builders, so one might argue that they were, hm, at least "closer" to being Bermudian sloops? ... If you should be writing more on this topic at some point, I'd love to read it! --Ibn Battuta 19:43, 13 May 2007 (UTC)
PS: As I'm about to upload the Flying Fish image to the Commons, would you think that changing the original title (containing the words "Bermudian sloop-of-war") to Flying_Fish_Baltimore clipper.jpg would be accurate? Likewise I've thought about changing the caption slightly (to spare you more user questions like mine :o)): Would that be okay?
Architectural drawing of the Flying Fish, a ship used by the Royal Navy.
Bermuda sloops were used by the navy in combatting French privateers, and as advice vessels, carrying communications and important materials. Inspired by the success of American privateers, however, the Admiralty used the Baltimore clipper Flying Fish as the model for a class of sloops, placing orders with boat builders in Bermuda and Britain. Although the American schooner's developments had been influenced by Bermudian vessels and builders, they were intended as coastal vessels, and were shallower drafted than comparably sized Bermudian designs (which were intended for the open ocean). - - - Thanks in advance, Ibn Battuta 20:20, 13 May 2007 (UTC)
Hallo Ibn...sure. I originally uploaded the image as part of the article on Bermuda sloops, but had second thoughts, myself, on its Bermudian-ness, so removed it from that article. If you're interested in the subject, try getting your hands on "The Andrew and the Onions", by Ian Strannack. Just make sure its a later, Bermuda Maritime Museum Press, edition....(I gave mine to the Imperial War Museum, but its now out of print, and the earlier, paperback edition, which I still have, leaves much to be desired).

Aodhdubh 00:51, 15 May 2007 (UTC)

Thanks again! I've uploaded the image to Commons accordingly... --Ibn Battuta 14:17, 18 May 2007 (UTC)


Image copyright problem with Image:BVRC Edward VII Coronation Contingent.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thank you for uploading Image:BVRC Edward VII Coronation Contingent.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the image. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page. STBotI (talk) 23:03, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

Gust[edit]

Hi, there is a problem with your edits to gust and gust Corporation. It sounds good to make a disambiguation on gust and create Gust Corporation but it's not the appropriate way to move pages. As you can see [1], the history of gust incorporation has been lost, which is bad. In order to fix the problem, I've asked the assistance of an administrator [2]. -- Cenarium (talk) 01:21, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

Reply[edit]

Hallo...I wasn't happy with the relocation, either. It left the page Gust required for a redirect, and so unable to be used for a page on the literal definition of 'gust' - hence 'gusts'. I've run into a limitation of my know-how, and yield to those who know more than I do on this subject. Aodhdubh (talk) 02:00, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

It's settled, gusts redirects to gust which disambiguates and gust Corporation has been recreated. -- Cenarium (talk) 02:26, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

Your edits to Virginia[edit]

Hi Aodhdubh,

Regarding your edits to the Virginia article: I understand that for a period of time in the seventeenth century the colonies were understood together, however, I strongly doubt the relevancy of that information's repeated inclusion in prominent places in the article. In the lead, the summary of the article, you added: "the second permanent English colony in the New World, Bermuda, was settled as a part of Virginia". While this may be true, I don't think it belongs in the article on the U.S. state of Virginia, let alone in the lead. A note is already included in the History section referencing Bermuda as part of the original definition of the geographic term Virginia. It is not, however, currently considered in the same way, and I will remove the statements about "Bermuda's inclusion within the boundaries of Virginia" to eliminate confusion and off-topic phrases. I strongly feel that this information takes away from the article, rather than adding to it, and would be better included in the History of Virginia article and the Bermuda article. I will leave the note about the Sea Venture in the colony subsection. If you want to discuss, this, let's do so on my talk page or the Talk:Virginia page.--Patrick Ѻ 21:18, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

Due to the rigidity of copyright law, we have to be quite draconian on copyrighted images.

Reply to "YOUR Mistaken Objection" and "Further to Above"[edit]

Before I start, I'd just like to make a point that this is Wikipedia and not a place to accuse. As collaborators on the Wikipedia project, it is necessary to create an encouraging environment rather than a garrulous one you are attempting to create. Please do not use such brash language in the future. Thank you.

And now, to the issue of the Bermuda Coin images. You have licensed the images Bermuda Crown 1964.jpg under the Creative Commons and GNU licenses. Using these licenses mean that you have created the images yourself....completely and entirely. You created the image -yes, but not the coin. The image that you have uploaded depicts a coin which was copyrighted by a foreign nation. With the Creative Commons and GNU licenses, you are claiming that the coin of the foriegn nation was created by you and you now intend to share this 'work' in the public domain. Such constitues as a copyright infrigement and therefore your image is deleteable by (db-i9). Please read the page, Wikipedia:Non-free content, at the image section, to get a better idea of what this really means.

Rather than license your image under Creative Commons and GNU licenses, you should be licensing your image under the template {Non-free currency} and provide the appropriate fair use rationale. An example of the rationale used for foriegn currencies is seen in the page [[3]]. If you can fix the licensing and add fair use rationale, I will remove the deletion templates. Thank you.Fastily (talk) 06:22, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

Reply to the Above[edit]

Well, thank you, and you might have written what have now, regarding copyright of the coins, rather than the image of the coin, the first time...what I read in your initial objection was an accusation by you that I had plagiarised the image, or the text verbatim (wasn't clear which was intended), from a printed source, or another website. If that is not, or no longer, your objection, but that the coin itself is a copyright, and that any photograph of it is therefore violating said copyright (are you certain? That seems a bit wide-sweeping a definition...but I'll follow up on the links you posted), then that seems a more reasonable objection, and less like an attack on my character. If you read my reply to your objection as an attack on your own person, or your character, it was certainly not meant that way, and you'll have my apologies for words that could have perhaps been chosen more carefully.

  • Unfortunately, [4] is an image of an original, hand-coloured newspaper cutting, which I left in a frame, on my mother's wall, when I moved out of Bermuda several years ago. i don't think I've a much better copy on my hard-drive, and a better scan will have to wait for my next trip to Bermuda (not any time soon, alas). Keep in touch, though, and I'll see what I can do. Perhaps my brother can re-scan it. Aodhdubh (talk) 23:01, 22 November 2009 (UTC)
    • I produced a copy of it while in Bermuda last summer, but have not been able to scan it as yet. I will load a high resolution version here to replace the existing scan as soon as I have managed that. Aodhdubh (talk) 22:54, 22 November 2012 (UTC)
      • Hallo Seán. I have uploaded a better version. The original was too large for a single scan so I have had to recompose it. I will doubtless return with a third and better scan, but for now, please visit the original image and click the link "Full resolution" ‎(2,940 × 657 pixels, file size: 513 KB, MIME type: image/jpeg). I suspect that in a matter of hours, the new version will replace the old as the display image. Aodhdubh (talk) 16:55, 19 September 2013 (UTC)

St. Peter's Church[edit]

Hi, I'm very impressed with the number of articles and especially the fine photo's you've taken. I see you wrote the St. Peter's Church, St. George's article, and the article states that it's "the oldest surviving Anglican church in continuous use outside the British Isles". I also spotted one of your photo's taken in 2006 and uploaded in 2007, that it's the "oldest surviving Anglican (before 1978, Church of England) church outside the British Isles". Where did you get this info? The plaque outside the church says "Western Hemisphere". Thanks for any help or light you can shed on this. --HighKing (talk) 21:33, 28 February 2010 (UTC)


      • Hallo. That information is well known in \bermuda, and available from a variety of local publications. Scouring it from exo-Bermudian sources is more difficult. If you go to the Anglican Communion of Bermuda's web page for St. Peter's Church (http://www.anglican.bm/j3r.html), and click history, at least a little information is found there.

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) 04:51, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

Arthur Spurling[edit]

A very nice expansion of the stub, indeed. It not only tells Spurling's story, but gives unexpected insight into Bermuda's participation in World War I.

Are you going to add some more cites? The assessors will expect more.

Air Observation Post[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a search with the contents of Air Observation Post, and it appears to be very similar to another Wikipedia page: Airborne Observation Post. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case. If you are intentionally trying to rename an article, please see Help:Moving a page for instructions on how to do this without copying and pasting. If you are trying to move or copy content from one article to a different one, please see Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia and be sure you have acknowledged the duplication of material in an edit summary to preserve attribution history.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. CorenSearchBot (talk) 16:48, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

Bermuda/British Empire[edit]

Hi Aodhdubh. I appreciate (looking at your user page) that the subject of Bermuda is probably one close to your heart, but please bear in mind that the British Empire article is an overview of 400 years of history across seven continents. In such a summary article, it's impossible to give each former colony, not to mention each current BOT, the space it deserves, but that's OK because we have hyperlinks to more in depth articles. In this case, the reader can click on Bermuda to find out that it was AKA Somers Isle, and from there they can navigate to, e.g. History of Bermuda or St. George's, Bermuda.

Thank You for the Wikipedia Picture[edit]

Hello, My name is Duane Hurst and I recently made a free (non-commercial) English web site to share information with people. I added links to your Wikipedia/Wikimedia freeware picture (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:International_One_Design_-_Hamilton_Harbour_-_Bermuda.jpg and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Bermuda-Harbour_and_Town_of_St_George.jpg). I also gave credit to you on my web pages for your work. Thank you for sharing with the public. My website is:

http://www.freeenglishsite.com/

I add pictures such as yours to one of the following major sections of my site: 1. World section - contains information and over 10,000 images of every world country and territory. Link at: http://www.freeenglishsite.com/world/index.htm

2. USA section - contains information and images of every USA state and territory. Link at: http://www.freeenglishsite.com/world/usa/index.htm

3. English section - "Mel and Wes" lessons in conversation format. Stories are located in various USA states and world countries such as China, England, Germany, Japan, Mexico and Thailand. Each lesson has many slang terms and idioms, which I link to my Slang Dictionary. This eventually will have over 5,000 terms. Currently, it has about 3,000 slang and idioms. I regularly add new lessons and slang terms. Link at: http://www.freeenglishsite.com/english/lessons/index.htm Slang Dictionary link at: http://www.freeenglishsite.com/english/slang/Eslang_a.htm

Prior to retirement, I taught English at several private and public universities in the United States.

Bermuda island photographs[edit]

I have been admiring your photography, and occasionally I move pictures to from en: to Commons (I only really pop over to Wikipedia to scout for pictures for Commons and things of specific interest).

There are very few picture (as far as I can see) of Bermuda's multitudinous little islands, which is a pity as there is nothing better to liven an article up. It may be that people in Bermuda have realized how valuable pictures of the islands are and are loathe to donate them to a free picture library!

Another growing project, which takes its pictures from Commons, has as yet just a few islands listed (here, and I am not sure that its "Greek Letter Islands" might not be a made-up name). If there were a source for pictures, or someone with a boat and a camera and a generous frame of mind, then this could be built up.

  • I have many photographs of smaller islands in Bermuda. Actually, my brother is the proprietor of a boating company, which I work for when Aodhdubh (talk) 00:08, 1 December 2014 (UTC) at home, and that has certainly made it easier taking photographs from the water. You might want to look at a map of Bermuda and let me know which islands you'd like photographs of, then I'll see what I have of them.
    • I just looked at that link. Be aware that many, probably most, islands in Bermuda have more than one name. I probably have photographs of varying quality of most of the islands between the Great Sound and Hamilton Harbour. I'll try to upload some tonight. Aodhdubh (talk) 00:11, 1 December 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. I'll look forward to that and see how they can brighten an article or two. I love the idea that even in a small territory you can't agree on the names of the islands. Why should there be drab conformity? Next time someone argues about whether to use the Welsh-language name or the English-language name for a river or mountain, I will appeal to the Bermudian solution. Hogweard (talk) 13:21, 2 December 2014 (UTC)
      • Apologies. I have none of the Greek Letter Islands, it seems, except perhaps as distant specks in the background. I have a great many of those East of Hawkins'. Aodhdubh (talk) 13:12, 3 January 2015 (UTC)
Any photos you've got would be welcome. (Is the name "Greek Letter Islands" one that wikifolk made up, or is it actually used?) Hogweard (talk) 13:00, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

Bermudians in the Canadian Expeditionary Force[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a search with the contents of Bermudians in the Canadian Expeditionary Force, and it appears to be very similar to another Wikipedia page: Bermudians in the CEF. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case. If you are intentionally trying to rename an article, please see Help:Moving a page for instructions on how to do this without copying and pasting. If you are trying to move or copy content from one article to a different one, please see Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia and be sure you have acknowledged the duplication of material in an edit summary to preserve attribution history.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. CorenSearchBot (talk) 12:59, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

RNAS Boaz Island (HMS Malabar)[edit]

Good Evening,

Thank you for adding a infobox to RNAS Boaz Island (HMS Malabar), however the infobox template you added was "Infobox military unit" which should only used for unit articles hence the name. For military installations you should use "Infobox military installation". Gavbadger (talk) 16:41, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
