Re: Alfred de Grazia picture which is not his picture at all[edit]

You have uploaded a distasteful photograph of a soldier, possibly American, standing in front of a pile of bodies at some location disclosed only by the erroneous label. The man pictured is not my father Alfred de Grazia, though there was a picture of him doing the same thing at a KZ camp I thought might be Buchenwald for a number of reasons. My father was with the 3rd Army, and Patton ordered his staff into Buchenwald, not Auschwitz. I am taking measures to have the mistake corrected across the internet. I will be filing a report with Wikipedia. Please either remove the photograph, entirely, or replace it with an image explaining the mistake. I am also reporting this to anti-hate organizations as a possible violation of Holocaust denial laws, depending on the usage the photograph is put to.

VLC[edit]

VLC official page is http://www.videolan.org/vlc/ not http://www.videolan.org/, which is the official page of VideoLAN. I don't understand why you reverted those edits...

REGARDING YOU DELETING MY POSTS[edit]

On my Jude Wright posts you have been removing my info because apparently my citations weren't reliable. But the WHOLE article has poor references that are WORSE than mine, so.....? Why are you just deleting mine?

Angora[edit]

Could we just change the image in the Turkish Angora article? Because the previous one is not a typical Angora breed. I don't understand why you reloaded the old photo. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Aalpan (talkcontribs) 18:48, 27 February 2011 (UTC)

Upload Book Cover[edit]

Hey, How can I upload an Book Cover to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pretty_Little_Things without "no fair use images at Commons"??? — Preceding unsigned comment added by MaSiMüFi (talkcontribs) 20:37, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

Upload it to en wiki. Do not choose "Upload a free image" and go to Commons, select "It is a cover or other page from a book,DVD, " instead. --Denniss (talk) 20:50, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

Cincinnati Enquirer[edit]

I am not trying to vandalize wikipedia. I am simply trying to update the Cincinnati Enquirer newspaper to a higher resolution, more current image. Can you please inform me as to the correct way to upload this image? Thank you

Using a current image is no problem. But without having a permission from the newspaper to use a free license you need to upload it to the english wikipedia as lowres image under fair use claim. --Denniss (talk) 17:26, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

Is there a way to upload a fair use image without being autoconfirmed? Thank you

SVG Resizing[edit]

Just wanted to let you know I removed a {{reduce}} tag you placed on an SVG. SVG images cannot be shrunk like that, they can, however, be rendered in small sizes, as the {{SVG-Logo}} template indicates. Thanks anyways, Sven Manguard Wha? 05:14, 16 March 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Reltih Floda[edit]

Hello Denniss, and thanks for patrolling new pages! I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Reltih Floda, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: The article makes a credible assertion of importance or significance, sufficient to pass A7. You may wish to review the Criteria for Speedy Deletion before tagging further pages. Thank you. ϢereSpielChequers 00:38, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

Lamborghini Gallardo image (re: edit war with HappyLogolover2011)[edit]

Hey, if you look closely at the image here you can see that the yellow paint job was added digitally (Photoshop or whatever). The lines are not straight and the yellow is exactly the same throughout (i.e., doesn't change in the shadow or from the glare), and the reflected portion on the ground is different. Even if it somehow passes copyright it looks so bad it doesn't belong on WP anyway. Cheers! SQGibbon (talk) 00:30, 20 March 2011 (UTC)

Furthermore it looks like this person used the image taken from here (scroll down or go here for the big version). SQGibbon (talk) 00:50, 20 March 2011 (UTC)

Undoing edits[edit]

Hi there. Please do not use the undo-feature to revert valid edits, at least not without specifying a reason why you did so. In your edit here you undid a valid change introduced by an IP editor without explaining why you did so, thus not allowing others to understand your motivation. Regards SoWhy 13:10, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

It was removed because it wasn't a valid edit - no need to add redlinks to infoboxes. --Denniss (talk) 15:09, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
Please review our guideline for such links at WP:REDLINK. In cases like this one, it is valid because it was meant to lead (and, here, lead to) the creation of a valid article related to the subject. Red links are not bad per definition, neither in infoboxes nor elsewhere and our guidelines specify this clearly. Also, please remember that even if you think an edit is not valid (no matter if it really isn't), you should always specify your reasons in the edit summary, so that others can understand your motivations without having to ask you. Regards SoWhy 08:07, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Basia Bulat profile picture[edit]

Hello. I just noticed you have reverted my edit of Basia Bulat's page citing "non-free file" as the reason. actually, the permission for the file I put is creative commons with attribution (as you can see it linked to and written under the "license" section here) therefore it is free to share and can be used on Wikipedia. I'd appreciate it if you paid more attention next time. thank you. Zeddian (talk) 18:31, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

RE: Message on my talk page[edit]

See here for the answer to your question. Doh5678 (Talk) 19:42, 3 April 2011 (UTC)

Please[edit]

Please stop this reverting and wait for a reply from OTRS. Let's talk about things, not just revert EVERYTHING without discussing first. Batavier2.0 (talk) 11:55, 8 April 2011 (UTC)

Please do not force others to use you old, small, low quality and/or misplaced images. Several other users reverted your edits. You do not own these articles. If you further revert the misplaced image removals you'll be in trouble with Administrators (you even undid reverts made by Administrators calling them vandals). And do not outlog and continue this behaviour as an IP as you have already done. --Denniss (talk) 11:59, 8 April 2011 (UTC)
Some images were in place. You just remove them ALL. Without any discussion. Please wait what happens. If others find them misplaced, they will remove them. If not, then not. What we no do is engage in editwarring. Which isn't good. :) Batavier2.0 (talk) 12:01, 8 April 2011 (UTC)

Comment from an outside observer Denniss, you appear to be removing Batavier's images simply because you do not like them. How about opening a discussion to achieve consensus on the relevant talk pages before simply reverting. You both are dangerously close to receiving a WP:3RR block. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 12:07, 8 April 2011 (UTC)

I'd like to prevent any of us from getting blocked. Why don't we just log out and leave things the way they are now? I seriously doubt I caused any harm whatsoever and it wasn't my intention to cause any harm or conflict. Batavier2.0 (talk) 12:11, 8 April 2011 (UTC)
@Batavier2.0: As has been pointed out on your talk page, adding images to article is really only useful if the images actually enhance a reader's understanding of the concept. Adding a bunch of 90 year old images to article that they only marginally relate to doesn't help. However, since you added the images in a good faith effort to improve the encyclopedia, Denniss should have engaged in a discussion before reverting the edits rather than engaging in an edit war. I think your idea to take a cooling off period is an excellent one. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 12:14, 8 April 2011 (UTC)
I am glad you like my idea. ;) I'd gladly take your advice in this case, of course I would. It's just that I loved seeing this images on those pages and I really like the results. I believe most of these images were indeed related to the articles. What is wrong with including a picture of a man smoking a cigarette to a page on smoking, or an image of an engaged couple to a page on engagement? Also, in silent film, I added the picture of the most famous living actor from the era. I see no problem with that at all. I can also provide sources if needed. Batavier2.0 (talk) 12:18, 8 April 2011 (UTC)
Have started a WP:SPI here regarding this issue [1] What we have is three user accounts that have made few / no other edits other than to add images of this person to dozens of pages across Wikipedia. These edits have been reverted by many long time user. Per WP:BOLD you add the image. Someone reverts it. Than the person who wishes to add it is supposed to discuss before re adding.

Nomination of Air France Flight 7 for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Air France Flight 7 is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Air France Flight 7 until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on good quality evidence, and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion template from the top of the article. --Mûĸĸâĸûĸâĸû (blah?) 16:46, 13 April 2011 (UTC)

Battle of Kosare[edit]

I was going through various battle articles and saw the edit war with a continuisly blocked editor that you are having at the article Battle of Kosare. I also read the articles discussion page and saw that in previous years heated debates developed over the result of the battle. As it stands, we couldn't just leave the article without a result. But a neutral result should also be found that could satisfy both sides. So I took the liberty and put that both sides are claiming victory. With Yugoslavia on the basis that they repelled almost every KLA attack wave and retainded control of Kosare up until the end of the war, leaving the KLA without fullfilment of their strategic objective. And the KLA on the basis that the Yugoslavs withdrew after the Kumanovo treaty at the end of the war, after which KFOR took control of the border. I did this in an attempt so future edit wars over the article could be avoided since this seems as a good attempt at a neutral stand point and compromise. Hope it helps, cheers!

Bismarck sources[edit]

Hello Denniss, I got my source about bismark displacement from this page: http://www.kbismarck.com/bsweights.html — Preceding unsigned comment added by Armada09 (talkcontribs) 12:55, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

Deletion tagging[edit]

Why did you tag this for deletion? The uploader is claiming it as there own work, and I see no reason to doubt that based on image quality and the presence of metadata. –Drilnoth (T • C • L) 14:29, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

Look at the logs of this user, all of his images with own work claim were deleted as copyvio (except this one). --Denniss (talk) 17:11, 13 June 2011 (UTC)
Decent reasoning, although I would suggest noting why you tagged it in unclear cases like this (or taking it to FFD/PUF instead of DIing it). However, I'm still unsure as to whether or not this particular image is a copyvio; TinEye comes up with some results, but this is twice the resolution of the others so they other images may have been copied from us. If you still want to argue for deletion, I'd recommend taking it to FFD because this doesn't look to me like a completely clear-cut case. –Drilnoth (T • C • L) 18:05, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

SMS Preussen (1903)[edit]

Hello Denniss. I noticed you moved the article to SMS Preußen (1903) giving the reason that this was how the ship's name was spelled. The problem is, English-language sources almost entirely spell it without the eszett. We must therefore do the same thing, per WP:UE. Therefore, I have reverted your move and spelling changes at that article and on Scharnhorst class battleship. Let me know if you have any questions or wish to discuss this further (I'll be watching your talk so you can just reply here). Regards, Parsecboy (talk) 13:07, 1 July 2011 (UTC)

Nice, a blank revert without noticing the correct spelling anywhere in the article. Even using a wrong german spelling in the infobox. Good work. --Denniss (talk) 13:47, 1 July 2011 (UTC)
It's not "wrong", it's how the ship is named in English. Even the English translation of Erich Gröner's German Warships 1815-1945 spells it this way. We must follow English usage in accordance with WP:UE (which is established Wikipedia policy). Parsecboy (talk) 14:10, 1 July 2011 (UTC)
I'm able to live with this dumb policy but not with your blank revert. The lead should notice the proper german spelling and the infobox should not claim Preussen to be the proper german spelling for Prussia. --Denniss (talk) 14:21, 1 July 2011 (UTC)
There is already a note explaining the spelling difference. Parsecboy (talk) 14:25, 1 July 2011 (UTC)


File tirpitz 004[edit]

I asked and granted permission from Michael W. Pocock and MaritimeQuest.com to use that file photo.what should i do for blatant copyright infringement Udisblizbadjoke (talk)

Pocock does not own the copyright, so he can't release it for use. The image is German in origin (almost certainly created by the German Navy), so under German copyright law, the creator of the image has to have died more than 70 years ago (and since the image was taken in 1941, this is unlikely) for the image to be public domain. Unless the image was seized by the United States after the war (as some were), it would not be public domain in the US until copyright expires in Germany (and in some cases, longer than that due to the URAA). Parsecboy (talk) 12:41, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
The picture are in the Public Domain.they are all very well knownUdisblizbadjoke (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 15:20, 12 July 2011 (UTC).
No, it is not in the public domain. The photo is most definitely still copyrighted in Germany, and more than likely still in the US as well. You need to demonstrate how the image is public domain for us to be able to use it. Parsecboy (talk) 16:04, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
Is public domain in usa {{PD-US}}{{Do not move to Commons}} Udisblizbadjoke (talk)
No, you have to show how you know that. You can slap those templates on anything you like, but it doesn't make it so. For the image to be public domain in the US, you need to demonstrate that the US Government considers it to be seized Nazi property. Parsecboy (talk) 17:21, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

Frequently_updated[edit]

Hi. A quick comment: The "frequently_updated" parameters has a technical function in Wikipedia, not a semantic one. In other words, you do not set it to yes if you think the computer program of the article is frequently updated. You only set it to "yes" when you want infobox to to enter FU mode. Prerequisites must be ready. For more information, see Template:infobox software/doc. Cheers. Fleet Command (talk) 17:38, 13 July 2011 (UTC)


WWII informations on Japanese ships[edit]

Been trying to update these details and some were incorrect, do i have to keep update them every time you change it??? Sorry i didnt add my profile on wikipedia to give details about myself. Having solid background on WWII ships in Pacific Regions for over twenty-five years of research. Also Working and updating alot of WWII games such as Hearts of Iron Series, Pacific Storm: Allies, War in the Pacific: Admiral Edition, etcs. Just trying to give out correct infos on those WWII ships. There alot of books on the markets and some are hard to come by, some had incorrect informations as well, though you would like to know.

Please cite the sources your changes are based on. Otherwise we have to assume original research or guesswork. If you don't know how the reference tags work please state the source in the edit summary or contact a regular author at WP:Ships, asking for help. --Denniss (talk) 16:10, 16 July 2011 (UTC)

Vandal at the ATI/AMD articles[edit]

It looks like a guy (TheGreatness2, TheGreatness3 etc.) is making new users and doing lots of changes that we have undone several times, but he just makes new users when he is banned and keep vandalizing. What is the solution to this? Jørgen88 (talk) 00:07, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

Funny[edit]

Funny thing is, After I edited the ATi Pages recently. I Recieved a "Thank you for your Contributions" Notice. Now, Isn't that funny?. Because If I was "Vandalising" as you claim, Why would I recieve a "Thank you for your Contributions?".

And so what this means is: is that the Other mods allow my Edits, and in fact, Thanked me for them.

Now why would they do that?, well, because My Edits are Valid. And my Edits are valid because it showcases that, Indeed, AMD is now in Ownership of ATi. But it is ATi Still making the GPUs. And I had Also added in the Detail of "ATi is known Internally as AMD Graphics Products Group".

My Edits are, Perhaps, the Best version of the "ATi GPU" pages. — Preceding unsigned comment added by TheGreatness6 (talkcontribs) 20:31, 30 July 2011 (UTC)

This reminds me of the discussions on Wikipedia when some people just wouldn't give up the fact that Pluto is not a planet, but a dwarf planet. Or the people that just wouldn't accept that the world is in fact round, not flat. ATI does no longer exist, it will never exist either. Jørgen88 (talk) 00:07, 31 July 2011 (UTC)

Frankfurt collage[edit]

I'm not really sure how to add the source but i can assure you that i've made the collage myself from these pictures:File:Frankfurt Am Main-Roemerberg 19-27 von Suedosten-20110307.jpg, File:Frankfurt Am Main-Stadtansicht von der Deutschherrnbruecke zu Beginn der Abenddaemmerung.jpg, File:Frankfurt Am Main-Samstagsberg-20070607.jpg, File:Karl der Grosse vor dem Historischen Museum Frankfurt.jpg

You need to link from the image compilation description page back to the original images, state their authors and tag it with a license matching the originals. In case of the Frankfurt compilation this would be GFDL 1.2 (not blank GFDL). You should also link from the source images to the new compilation. --Denniss (talk) 23:58, 30 July 2011 (UTC)

And so why did you take down the portal links? 04:38, 4 August 2011 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Moonstonecastle77 (talkcontribs)

Dixie Carter-Salinas[edit]

Denniss. While I appreciate your zeal in reverting pictures on Dixie Carter-Salinas' profile, please allow the Commons attribution their time to apply the license we have sent in for the picture. I can personally assure you that the rights are properly allocated and that the picture is a proper picture for the profile. If you wish to discuss this further before reverting for a third time...please do. Thank you for your understanding in advance.

You have to add a proper license and a usage permission or the image(s) will be deleted again. --Denniss (talk) 21:40, 8 August 2011 (UTC)

Appealing to your expertise here on this one...we got the email back from Wiki Commons Permissions stating that the permissions had been added and the image fixed. Does the current image look like it is all good now? Thanks. Wikiuser1254 (talk) WikiUser1254 August 9, 2011 9:23AM CST —Preceding undated comment added 14:23, 9 August 2011 (UTC).

8x57 IS[edit]

As a German, you should know C.I.P. standardisation; if you are interested in WWII weaponry, you should also know the source Dienstvorschriften as well as the German books on the subject. 7.92x57mm seems to be either a misnomer/a nomenclature mix between "Patrone 7,9mm" (as written in the Dienstvorschriften) and 8x57 IS (C.I.P./SAAMI-designation) OR the BESA machine gun had this official calibre in Great Britain - compared to the 98k, MG-34 and MG-42 weapons rather a curiosity.

The seminal work on German rifle developement seems to be Hans-Dieter Götz, Die deutschen Militärgewehre und Maschinenpistolen, Stuttgart 1974, ISBN 3-87943-550-X - who also talks about "8x57 IS". 7.92 seems to be written especially in popular science books in the USA or translated from the USA.

If you should have new information (and sourcing!!!), please feel free to add it to the sources in Talk:8×57mm_IS#German_military_designation.3F. Given that C.I.P. and SAAMI both agree on the correct nomenclature, you really should have good arguments. --Hornsignal (talk) 14:26, 6 October 2011 (UTC)

Windows xp market share data[edit]

Statcounter has a history of incorrect data, as we all witnessed windows xp slid past the 50% mark in august (includes the mobiles os), but their graph declares its lost the 50% mark in January! Other then them 3 more Os analysis show windows xp currently at 50%. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Matniky (talkcontribs) 02:55, 19 October 2011 (UTC)

It all depends on who's observing what and where. As said in the comment, feel free to add other stat sources as a scondary opinion regarding market share but do not remove the old one. In gneral usae the XP maketshare should stil be high but the more tchrelated the observed website is, the more Win7 users you'll find. (My computers are one Win7 and three XP, makes 25% Win7 and 75% XP) --Denniss (talk) 03:03, 19 October 2011 (UTC)

Regarding this[edit]

Hello, you said File:Air_Boom_1.JPG's "description page currently doesn't specify who created the content"? I'm sure it's pretty clear. The file is composed of two pictures from Julian Holtom and Krystal, both of whom I did mention at the "Author" section. I also sourced the pictures to their original link. I myself combined the two pictures to form this picture. So what do I have to do now to make sure the file isn't deleted? Starship.paint (talk) 06:20, 24 October 2011 (UTC)

Please check the second link. The license has to be corrected as well (unless the second image is a by-sa image). Be a little more careful when uploading images from Flickr - you have to use the license and creditline given by the author, not a similar more restrictive license. --Denniss (talk) 11:44, 24 October 2011 (UTC)
Oh dear. It seems that the file has been removed by its author. What should I do now? And what should the appropriate license be if I combine two pictures with different licenses? Starship.paint (talk) 12:29, 25 October 2011 (UTC)
When combining images from different authors with different licenses the most restrictive license counts, license have to be compatible though (you can't combine a Free-Art with a Creative Commons licensed image). All authors have to be properly attributed. I don't know how the en wiki handles Flickr images that have been removed or their license changed to an incompatible type - we at Commons have a bot and Admins/Trusted users reviewing these images to have a confirmation that they were available under the given license at the time of upload. EDIT: I found the image uploaded and reviewed at Commons. --Denniss (talk) 14:50, 25 October 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for settling the matter! To help me out, could you give me a list of Flickr licenses allowed on Wikipedia from the most to the least restrictive? Starship.paint (talk) 03:10, 26 October 2011 (UTC)
Typically Flickr has cc-by-sa-2.0 and the less restrictive cc-by-2.0 as compatible CC licenses. The also have NC and ND variants of the former two but these are not compatible. I don't know if they have CC-PD, plain PD or a similar license. But as always with outside sources - make sure these images do not look like taken from other sites as Flickrwashing (copyrighted content taken from elsewhere but claim own work/free license) seems to be a new hobby for vandals. --Denniss (talk) 04:37, 26 October 2011 (UTC)

Declined speedy deletion[edit]

I wanted to let you know that I declined your speedy deletion request on Aishah Himegami; I feel that claiming to be a voice actress on many different national tv shows is a sufficient claim of importance to pass the relatively low bar of WP:CSD#A7. I did, though, add a BLP Prod to the article, because it currently has no sources. Qwyrxian (talk) 05:17, 25 October 2011 (UTC)

Tiger 1 page[edit]

You have removed my edit and accused me of vandalism when clearly you know nothing about the subject. The entry claiming 1700 Tiger 1's were lost is a clear misreading of the linked source that says 1700 Tiger 1's and Tiger II's were lost. The Tiger II has a seperate Wiki page. It is adding the 2 losses together and claiming they were all Tiger I losses. You can not loose 1700 tanks when only 1350 were produced. The Tiger II loses have been counted as Tiger I losses. A clear case of factualy incorrect information being allowed into the page.

Competition between Airbus and Boeing[edit]

Denniss, you keep changing the update I have made to Boeing orders an deliveries. I ONLY make these changes when I see them at www.boeing.com website. I'm not making up numbers. Could you please refrain in "correcting" something it's correct already Alainmoscoso (talk) 22:32, 3 November 2011 (UTC).

While the date may be correct, the information presented in the table is not. You have to update the information which say xxx net orders until <date> and xxx deliveries up to <date>. Currently Boing data shown is until november 1 but according the the table notes Boeing data is up to October 18. Noticed the discrepancy? --Denniss (talk) 23:36, 3 November 2011 (UTC)

Discuss major picture Change?[edit]

On November 3rd or 4th, i switched the lead image on the article Airbus A380. On November 4th, you reverted my edit with the reason being: "Please discuss any major image changes first". I have read through pretty much every image use guideline, Manual of style, ETC, and i do not see where it is said that any changes to the lead image must be discussed. I would appreciate if you would let me know either on my talk page or here, where it says that i must discuss any image changes. Dusty777 (talk) 00:19, 9 November 2011 (UTC)

Okay Denniss, i started a discussion and was able to switch the lead image. I consulted an Administrator and he said that there is no essay, rule, guideline, or manual of style that a user must discuss a lead image change. He recommended a discussion on the grounds that Airbus A380 is a "good article", so that is why i discussed it. Thanks for your time. Dusty777 (talk) 01:46, 4 December 2011 (UTC)

Please be a little more considerate to other editors[edit]

They way you've responded to my changes to the Fritz X article was uncalled for. I clearly explained why I removed information that seem to come out of thin air, and I did not want to add information to the article since I have no knowledge on the topic. Your last edit shows you did understand why I changed it. There's no need for saying things like "what's your problem?" - you obviously know what the problem with the article was and if I have any problems myself, it is people acting they way you did.

Image disappeared[edit]

Hi, The image LDS Baptism Panama.jpg that I uploaded to Commons yesterday disappeared, and I was wondering if you knew where it went since you were the one who fixed the link after it was gone. The other image is fine, but I liked the cropped version better. -- Adjwilley (talk) 01:34, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

Is there anything to be done?[edit]

Take a look at this.

In spite of the fact that I uploaded ORTS tickets for every single one of these images, they have all been deleted again. They were deleted after a period shorter than the posted ORTS backlog. And again, no one made even the slightest attempt to explain the issue, warn me in any fashion, or do any work whatsoever except click "yes" on some bot script.

Is there any hope for the Commons? Can this be fixed? Or should I just give up on media entirely?

Everyone should really understand[edit]

Denniss is what's causing all this problems. So therefore, I will quit editing Wikipedia and he is just reverting everything. This really is annoying. So if someone can block Denniss (at least I tried), that would be a desirable favor. Wikipedia, at least have a talk with Denniss and tell him to stop reverting every edit. But I will try to find a way to block him if I can. Be a Wikipedia citizen, not a bully. TsarSrbinu29 (talk) 18:44, 29 January 2012 (UTC)

I do see a problem here. Denniss, when you revert or undo someone's edits, you need to explain what you're doing. Specifically, when you undo an edit, you will see the following highly appropriate message:
If you are undoing an edit that is not vandalism, explain the reason in the edit summary. Do not use the default message only.
Your mass undoing of others' edits without explanations is problematic and disruptive. Please stop.
It's clear you want to help the project but your unilateral and heavy-handed reverts are not necessarily constructive and are clearly not in the spirit of how you should be editing. Toddst1 (talk) 19:00, 29 January 2012 (UTC)

Hi Denniss, As you have now twice reverted the addition of this article to the Category:Mass murder in 1937, giving in your edit summary "No, mass murder cat is not legitimate, the massacre cat is questionable as well", perhaps you should state your reasons for questioning its legitimacy at Category talk:Mass murder by year.

Iosif Stalin tank[edit]

Hi Denniss, could you please care to explain to me how I have "vandalised" the Iosif Stalin tank page? I simply corrected the name of the tank due to historical innacuracy, which I do not regard as "vandalism". I do not wish to engage in an editing war with you, but I feel that your removal of my content has gone unjustified as no explanation on why it was removed was given only that it was classed as "vandalism". I would just simply like to know your reasons as to why you would regard my edits as vandalism, as I can prove that the content that I am posting is legitimate and I am willing to discuss this matter with you.

Incorrect A320 Family Information[edit]

You have been accusing me of changing the A320 family page. Well it shouldn't show China Southern Airlines as a primary user, but instead JetBlue Airways as they are a far bigger user of the A320 family than China Southern. Keevin3201 (talk) 23:29, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

And your data is based on what source ? --Denniss (talk) 23:43, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

JetBlue A320 Family Fleet numbers and orders. Keevin3201 (talk)

Usage numbers are for active aircraft only, orders are not relevant for user sorting. --Denniss (talk) 15:30, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

If you say so, but still, JetBlue (an American airline) is a far more major user of the A320 than a Chinese airline, so you're misleading people. Keevin3201 (talk) 15:54, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

Jetblue has 122 aircraft of the A320 family operational, China Southern 178. --Denniss (talk) 17:35, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

Numbers aren't everything. The A320 is JetBlue's main aircraft other than the E190, which they don't have a lot of, whereas China Southern operate a range of aircraft so you're incorrect and are misleading people by accusing me with the correct information. Keevin3201 (talk) 18:11, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

The article is about the A320 family, that includes A318/319/320/321. The article is not about the single type A320. --Denniss (talk) 19:46, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

Well done, Captain Obvious. But JetBlue is a far more important A320 family operator than China Southern. You should be ashamed, giving people false information. You seem to threaten everyone here whenever someone changes stuff to the correct information. Keevin3201 (talk) 21:25, 7 June 2012 (UTC)

I'd also like to let you know that I will change it back to JetBlue, to provide people with correct information. If you change it back, I will be in contact with Wikipedia, and will let them know of your threats to me and other people for trying to provide correct information. Keevin3201 (talk) 17:40, 8 June 2012 (UTC)

Main page appearance: Boeing 777[edit]

This is a note to let the main editors of Boeing 777 know that the article will be appearing as today's featured article on June 12, 2012. You can view the TFA blurb at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/June 12, 2012. If you prefer that the article appear as TFA on a different date, or not at all, please ask featured article director Raul654 (talk · contribs) or his delegate Dabomb87 (talk · contribs), or start a discussion at Wikipedia talk:Today's featured article/requests. If the previous blurb needs tweaking, you might change it—following the instructions at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/requests/instructions. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page. The blurb as it stands now is below:

Boeing 777-200 of United Airlines

The Boeing 777 is a long-range, wide-body, twin-engine jet airliner manufactured by Boeing Commercial Airplanes. It is the world's largest twinjet and is commonly referred to as the "Triple Seven". The aircraft has seating for over 300 passengers and has a range from 5,235 to 9,380 nautical miles (9,695 to 17,372 km), depending on model. Its distinguishing features include the largest-diameter turbofan engines of any aircraft, six wheels on each main landing gear, a circular fuselage cross-section, and blade-shaped tail cone. Developed in consultation with eight major airlines, the 777 was designed to replace older wide-body airliners and bridge the capacity difference between the 767 and 747. As Boeing's first fly-by-wire airliner, it has computer mediated controls; it is also the first entirely computer-designed commercial aircraft.(more...)

Boeing 767[edit]

Fifteen new Fedex 767 orders are listed on the Boeing website as of June 30, 2012. There was a delay in the listing due to the Independence Day Holiday in the USA. Citations have been added to the page. Please refrain from hasty edits without looking at source material.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Hans100 (talkcontribs)

I did look at source material and that's the first notice of the deal at Boeing's website. Although somewhat strange that there's no press release yet as they usually appear in tandem. The update at Boeing's order page is somewhat incorrect as they forgot change the effective date - that's a July deal (unless they dated it back somehow for tax or budget reasons). --Denniss (talk) 20:17, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

The deal was announced on June 29th, so it was a June deal. The spreadsheet was not updated until today due to the unusual 5 day holiday with independence day falling on a Wednesday (July 4th) and updates not occurring for end of June until today. Cheers--Hans100

Request[edit]

Hello Denniss.

I am waiting (hoping?) for someone to mentor me in Wikipedia.

I am British (native English speaker), educated in engineering and have expertise on WW2 aircraft. Your deletion of my edit on the FW190 was out of order. PS as a unit of power has never existed in the english language. Indeed the EU made it an obsolete unit in 1992.

Whilst I can appreciate that the Nazi engineers used PS in their original design of this engine, for educational/historical purposes we only need two units 1) SI and 2)Imperial.

Wg Cdr Luddite 77.97.181.117 (talk) 23:07, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

At first, PS was not invented by Nazi engineers and is still in wide use today even if it's deprecated (almost all nations with metric system did not use imperial hp but their own historical hp or something similar to the metric hp). 2) You replaced the correct value in PS by the same value as hp without proper recalculation into hp. For those engines it's preferred to have the original value it was specified with + proper recalculations into imperial hp + kW. This avoids a lot of problems, especially the sadly usual 1:1 PS->hp conversion/translation. --Denniss (talk) 10:26, 6 August 2012 (UTC)

Messerschmitt Bf 109 production[edit]

Hi Denniss, I have a copy of the citation Lieferplan B.Nr18/3 Nr.1285 which shows here E-4/BN Mtt.R. 15 WNF 20

Please explain exactly how this means 15 E-4/N and 20 E-4/BN? It specifically shows E-6/N and E-7/N but no E-4/N. Have you got any other evidence showing 109E-4/N being produced seperately from the jagdbomber version? Thanks Min✪rhist✪rianMTalk 12:48, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

Hi Dennis,

Thank you for your vigilance in maintaining long-stable and reliable articles from being filled with unverifiable, and for all good intentions I am sure characterizing Minorhistorian's latest additions, wrong information. I have found a very interesting paper, noting that the DB 601N was introduced for a Gruppe of 109 July 1940, in the link kindly provided by Minorhistorian, uploaded by this same "major sharpe" character. This Major Sharpe appears to be very well aware of the /N versions introduction date of July, and as a sidenote, he is also appearantly very much obsessed, perhaps a bit too obsessesed with Spitfires and 109s. The source appears to be Petrick/Mankau's Bf 110/210/410 book. Surely it should not be a problem to properly cite it, after all, we are all good-faith editors here, interested in improving the article, are we all not? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 213.222.180.172 (talk) 13:04, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

Hi Denniss, have you got a scan of the original Leiferplan B.Nr18/3 Nr.1285? I have no idea of where the version quoted in the article is from and, because it came from a book, the book should be cited, not the badly translated document. Thanks Min✪rhist✪rianMTalk 21:08, 31 August 2012 (UTC)
Sorry you ended up getting dragged into the middle of Kurfurst's obsessive interest in my editing in Wikipedia - that was completely unintentional. This editor has been blocked because of numerous incidents of tedious and mendacious behaviour, including accusing other editors of being sockpuppets. That he continues to engage in this type of behaviour is no surprise, it is regrettable that it has spilled over into your discussion page. Min✪rhist✪rianMTalk 03:45, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

need template help[edit]

the reason for the big image is because I noticed it make the template wider which is needed for text to not overlap, any ideas? Matthew Smith (talk) 21:43, 3 September 2012 (UTC)

Conversion template in MSC Flaminia[edit]

Hello. I have thought that the use of the conversion template is always recommended if the conversion at hand is supported by it — it removes the need for checking if the conversions are correct as they are calculated automatically. As for the accuracy, I would rather use the less accurate figure given by the conversion template. The output for the main engine that I've taken from the GL database is quite likely the rated output of 10K98 given by MAN B&W and not the actual measured output of this particular unit. The actual output of the ship's main engine may vary over time depending on fuel quality, ambient temperature of the engine room, time from previous overhaul etc. Thus, the overly accurate rating is likely not correct (or at least more likely incorrect than the less accurate figure). Also, when you're talking about a large diesel engine that produces over 76,000 hp, defining the output with an accuracy of 1 hp is the same as defining a the engine power of a car with two or three decimals, which is never done.

As a side note, personally I'm against using kW-hp conversion for modern ships. Horsepowers are not used in official context and the converted figures are in any case meaningless for most people — both 57,100 kW and 76,600 hp are such big numbers that it's impossible to relate them to anything they are familiar with.

Image[edit]

Re: this edit summary. There really isn't anything wrong with the image, just that it was being included by a banned editor. You are free to add it if you like.

I would point out, however, that if you see an edit that an administrator has reverted twice, you should be certain of what you are doing before reversing it. Reversing it while asking a question with exclamation points in an edit summary can be risky if there is some other policy reason for the removal.—Kww(talk) 12:26, 17 September 2012 (UTC)

DB605[edit]

What, exactly, is your problem with the power figures quoted by Smith and Creek for the DB610? They have spent 20+ years examining the relevant records - if, as you claim, they have somehow mixed up ps v hp please provide some proper evidence instead of simply swapping figures around. have a good Christmas :) Min✪rhist✪rianMTalk 19:41, 24 December 2012 (UTC)

Exactly becaus they swapped their figures: Please do the math yourself: 2x1475 PS = 2950 PS. The 1:1 translation of PS into hp and the conversion back to PS/kW based on these wrong values is a huge problem in english-language books. This is a problem with all values described as metric horsepower. --Denniss (talk)
You are making these allegations but you have not proved any of it! Just because 2 DB605s put out x horsepower it does not follow that the DB610 generated exactly twice the horsepower - where is your primary documentation showing that Smith and Creek, two highly experienced authors, have got PS and hp mixed up? Please prove that their power figures are not PS translated into hp. Min✪rhist✪rianMTalk 00:26, 25 December 2012 (UTC)
Have you ever seen an engine with that strange power figures you cited? 2909 and 2788 PS are a "bit" off standard practice to use multiples of 5 or 10. Also 2950 hp is not 2909 PS, this may either be an error on your side or from these "experienced" authors. --Denniss (talk) 01:07, 25 December 2012 (UTC)
Have you or have you not got any evidence to prove any of this? If not, you are engaging in Original Research and reverting properly cited material. Min✪rhist✪rianMTalk 03:16, 25 December 2012 (UTC)

WP:SOURCE[edit]

This is WP:POINT. A revert simply to annoy another user. I removed unsourced material, and you reinstated it because you claim that 'one person can't speak for the whole of Belgium and the Netherlands'. Well, apart from the fact that that wasn't my intention, you (and the person who originally added it) did exactly that yourself. Speaking for the whole of two countries. In your case, two countries of which you aren't even native (even though if that would be the case it still wouldn't gives you any authority) ... verbeter de wereld en begin bij jezelf. Without sources these kind of statements are removed. Now it is clear you followed my edits, which is fine by me as long as you edit based on Wikipedia rules, if I ever get the feeling you revert an edit of me, because of me instead of what I do ...

your revert of "Bundeswehr"[edit]

Denniss, I sort of cannot follow your line of arguments. But, then, perhaps I don't understand what you're trying to say. By "does not relate here", do you mean that there's no relationship between the Bundeswehr and the NVA? Maybe (disputable); but most definitely the NVA is a former German Armed Force. However, if your revert aims at the NVA being in existence at the same time as the Bundeswehr, it's merely a question of the wording to take that into consideration. But I do think that the NVA should be mentioned here. Could you please elaborate on the issue? Regards, Lost Boy (talk)

There are no traditions the Bundeswehr took over from the NVA in the timeframe of their co-existence as opposing forces. The section is merely to draw a line from early german military orgs to the Bundeswehr. In the context of this section the NVA is not a former military org as it didn't (officially) exist at the time of Bundeswehr creation. The NVA is covered in a later section and also has a separate article. --Denniss (talk) 15:13, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
I beg to differ to all except your first sentence. To me, it's quite clear that the NVA is indeed a former Armed Force and is to be mentioned here. May I suggest that we discuss this in public to get some more opinions? Rest regards, Lost Boy (talk)

A question of superlatives[edit]

Hello, Denniss,

I note that you have reverted my edit to Hans-Ulrich Rudel. I also note you have added the conditional phrase "a record score at that time". I further note that when looking for a cite, I find "cite needed" instead, so that I am unable to check the veracity of the claim. In short, you seem to have reverted an unsourced statement in the face of an attempt at achieving accuracy. I hope you have not also committed the WP sin of Original Research with that added phrase.

Please be so kind as to supply a source for your assertions, as I have done for my claims on Rudel's Talk Page. Perhaps you may also want to modify the superlative claim to something like, "flew the most combat missions in World War II", or something similar.

Georgejdorner (talk) 18:14, 4 February 2013 (UTC)

No cn tag there, missions reffed in the lead. And I just reverted your unjustified removal of that part for which a modification would have been more than enough. --Denniss (talk) 20:51, 4 February 2013 (UTC)

Hello again, Denniss,

We seem to be on the verge of incivility here, which was not my intent. I hope it is also not yours. While my edit summaries were in good faith, and even backed by Talk page notes, your latest was just a bit snippy. Especially when I took such pains to explain my edits. I corrected your edits in good faith, with no intention of spitefulness, and my deletion of an inaccuracy carries no obligation to replace the false claim.

I am an admirer of Rudel; any military man with his drive and courage draws high respect from his fellow combat veterans. However, we are writing an encyclopedia here, so accuracy is paramount. Quite frankly, I have no idea who flew the most combat missions in history, and I doubt we shall ever know. Besides the Lao and Hmong pilots of the RLAF, there were the pilots of the South Vietnamese Air Force. If some of them who began flying combat in 1962 lasted until war's end in 1975, there must be some incredible totals of combat missions. However, that speculation may be as close as we can come to the truth of the matter.

Lastly, for clarity's sake, how about duplicating that cite in the first para, and placing it exactly where it belongs down below that claim about Rudel's combat missions? For the sake of future readers.

Thanks.

A380 and Dreamliner[edit]

Hi - You just reverted my edits to the A380 article using Twinkle. My edits are not vandalism, I removed some information because I noticed it was wrong (see references included in my change comment). Could you please reinstate the edit? Mark cummins (talk) 10:39, 28 May 2013 (UTC)

OK, since I didn't hear back I have reinstated the edit myself. For reference the line I removed stated that "A380 is pressurised to the equivalent of 5000ft up to 41000ft". This is not correct. Two citations were provided for this information. The first one was: http://www.hamiltonsundstrand.com/StaticFiles/HS/Communications/General/Documents/A380%20Fact%20Sheet_June%202011.pdf If you actually read that reference, it says: "outflow valves regulate the cabin altitude to no more than 7,000 feet while flying up to 41,000 feet."

The second reference (http://www.globalaircraft.org/planes/airbus_a380.pl) does claim 5000ft, but it does not seem like a very authoritative source and is contradicted by better information elsewhere.

The most authoritative source I can find is a scientific article discussing the impact of air travel on patients with lung disease. The article reports actual measurements of cabin pressure on different aircraft. This shows clearly that the A380 cabin altitude is no better (and in fact slightly worse) than older aircraft such as the 747: https://www.ersnetsecure.org/public/prg_congres.abstract?ww_i_presentation=46081 http://www.ersnet.org/index.php?option=com_flexicontent&view=items&id=4106:airlines-are-cu

If you convert the hPa measurements in that article they correspond to a cabin altitude of about 7300ft when flying at 40,000ft. Mark cummins (talk) 23:19, 28 May 2013 (UTC)

As for the Dreamliner - the information removed is out of date and irrelevant now. Wikipedia is not a newspaper citation.

Just what is a "RüstSTAND" on a WW II German aircraft, anyway?[edit]

Dear Denniss:

The PIPE Here - I edited the "Rüststand" term in the Biff (Bf 109) article on the English language Wikipedia due to it likely being a bit of a misunderstanding relating to a term in Luftwaffe aviation I do know something about, the Rüstsatz field conversion packages that DID add the /R suffix to a Luftwaffe aircraft's designation, and NOT this so-called "Rüststand" entity you've asserted, that's most likely to be nothing more than a slight misspelling of the "Rüstsatz" term. There is also the "Umrüst-Bausatz" variety — often contracted to Umbau in WW II aviation history works — of more extensive upgrades that usually needed more than just front-line facilities to install, and did get its own "/U" suffix.

A quick Googling for the term "rüststand" revealed it to also be a term in the Dutch language, with that exact spelling - potentially making use of such a term in an article about German WW II aircraft also "out-of-place".

Please enlighten me about what the "Rüststand" term means, as a word im Deutsch, bitte schoen...I have never heard of it spelled precisely "that way" before, unless it could honestly be a misspelling of "Rüstsatz", in which case your edit might have actually preserved a possible misspelling...!

Thank you in advance, and Yours Sincerely,

The PIPE (talk) 17:53, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

A Rüstsatz is equipment you may quickly add or remove in field conditions like R VI on the Bf 109 G (20mm gondolas) or the various Bomb/DT equipment. Rüststand (also Rüstzustand) is a standard aircraft modified with special equipment either at the factory or specialized facilities, these are intended for specific mission profiles. Examples here are the various Bf 109 recons like G-6/R2 with cams or the G-6/R3 with cams + underwing drop tank option. Bf 109 F-4/R1 with preparations for underwing MG 151 gondolas is another Rüst(zu)stand example. Same with Bf 110, the /R designations are Rüststand, Rüstsatz designations were B or M if I remember right. A Rüstsatz never changed the designation on Mtt aircraft, a Rüststand/Rüstzustand did. There's probably a lot of confusion on Fw 190 aircraft which one of the R numbers was actually a Rüstsatz and which one a Rüststand, production data shows only A-8, A-8/R2 and A-8/R11 as production versions (Standard, Sturmbock, all/bad weather version). --Denniss (talk) 23:43, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

Sinking of the Bismarck[edit]

Hi Denniss, I wish to know your reasoning in reverting my edit of adding the Canadian and Polish flags to the list of belligerents in the Last Battle of the Bismarck. I included these countries as belligerents due to their assistance in locating and engaging the Bismarck after the Battle of the Denmark Strait. I addition if you have an issue with a revision it would be appreciated if you placed the reason down when you do undo one.

                                              Thanks J.Mieszała (talk) 22:12, 27 October 2013 (UTC)
Please see the page history and the discussion page of the article. Also only RN ships participated in the battle (or ships under RN command). --Denniss (talk) 22:38, 27 October 2013 (UTC)


Cheers for the reply Denniss,

I do concede that the Canadian navy although providing naval resources in the operation to locate Bismarck and helping overall in the search its ships were never fully engaged in the battle.

Regarding the Polish destroyer ORP Piorun, it was involved in the actions proceeding the sinking of the Bismarck. It was helped in retaining contact with the Bismarck during the night, as well as exchanging gunfire, and supporting the destroyer Flotilla (carrying out diversionary movements and torpedo attacks).

Although it was under Royal Navy command during the war, the Polish Navy was still a Polish force. This is similar to Polish army units, that although raised in Britain and the Middle East and under British/Allied Command throughout their actions during the war such as Monte Casino, Operation Totalise and Market Garden. They are still recognised as Polish Units and a Polish contribution in continuing the war against Germany (as Poland did not surrender). Would their be an objection to placing Poland in the belligerents section as the commanders section already shows its under Royal Navy command.

Hello, Dennis

I hope I am not catching you in busy time but would you please elucidate on this revert #594498134 in Windows 2000 article? I read you edit summary but I cannot understand what you are getting at.

Best regards,

New permissions[edit]

I've proactively given you several permissions. (I'm not sure if that's how it's normally done, seeing as I spend much of my time on Commons anymore, but I don't really see a problem with it.) The only important ones to remember are this: one can move a file on English Wikipedia subject to the same rules as on Commons, and rollback should never be used in an edit war. Details below in the templates.

Rollback boilerplate
Wikipedia Rollbacker.svg

I have granted rollback rights to your account. After a review of some of your contributions, I believe you can be trusted to use rollback for its intended usage of reverting vandalism, and that you will not abuse it by reverting good-faith edits or to revert-war. For information on rollback, see Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback and Wikipedia:Rollback feature. If you do not want rollback, contact me and I will remove it. Good luck and thanks. Magog the Ogre (t c) 17:14, 9 February 2014 (UTC)

Filemover boilerplate
Wikipedia File mover.svg

I have granted file mover rights to your account following either a request for those rights or a clear need for the ability to move files. For information on the file mover rights and under what circumstances it is okay to move files, see Wikipedia:File mover. When you move a file please ensure that you change the links to the file to the new name. If you do not want file mover rights anymore, just let me know, and I'll remove it. Good luck and thanks. Magog the Ogre (t c) 17:14, 9 February 2014 (UTC)

Reviewer boilerplate
Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on pages protected by pending changes. The list of articles awaiting review is located at Special:PendingChanges, while the list of articles that have pending changes protection turned on is located at Special:StablePages.

Being granted reviewer rights neither grants you status nor changes how you can edit articles. If you do not want this user right, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time.

Reverted my changes on: List of AMD Athlon 64 - Grouped by Socket[edit]

I recently grouped the Socket 754 together, separate from the Socket 939 CPU's in the List of AMD Athlon 64 microprocessors article, and you have simply reverted my changes without seeing if that was what the majority wanted.

From my point of view it is better to have those chips for the same socket grouped together, as people looking to upgrade will not be able to switch from a Socket 754 CPU to a 939 CPU.

Start a discussion before you revert changes please.

Commons[edit]

You blocked me on WikiCommons for my alleged "pro-Russian agenda". In what way have I taken a pro-Russian side in my edits to the maps??? By fixing the shape of Crimea??? Crimea has been over exaggerated in its physical borders with Ukraine, it is not that closely connected! The newer maps have already made edits to represent Crimea more appropriately, I didn't simply make it up. As for the Russian relations edits I have made, you absolutely have to include Crimea since it is a de-facto part of Russia and it is also recognized by some states as a de-jure part of Russia. That fact can't be ignored! I am very surprised that a user who has been on Wikipedia for over 9 years can make such a rushed block without fully discussing the issue! I demand you unblock me and revert back to all of my edits! --WhyHellWhy (talk) 14:27, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

Orbit Downloader[edit]

So I saw your revert, care to expound a bit? A look at the domain itself is clean. https://www.virustotal.com/en/url/2dcbaa1980aedd46b0a815af1376ded904406148577cbea6a7aa5ee306aa56d6/analysis/

Assuming this is the legit file: https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/18756d11b3c62654e2409d1340a8114fbd471f114420e5ba7735a7363cf23ec6/analysis/

A few of the detections are for OpenCandy, which is not malicious, rather it is ad supported. The other detections are for gush unleashed/orbitnet. There has been, to my knowledge, no third party confirmation of this module, just reposting of the ESET analysis. I'm also not aware of any site that has claimed to be a victim of this so called syn flood. Until we get additional confirmation, I think it poor practice to give this more than a passing mention. Sephiroth storm (talk) 08:19, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

Eset is a reputable source so please don't discount this analysis. Several others AVs, including Kaspersky, still detect it as DDoS module. I neither see an official announcement nor a forum post to repulse the DDoS module claim by ESET (nor confirmation of an infection and its removal). --Denniss (talk) 09:29, 25 June 2014 (UTC)
I'm not disputing it persay, but first it's not a virus as mentioned in the article. Secondly we've seen before where vendors will replecate the findings of another vendor without analysis. We don't have independant analysis. It can certainly stay in the article, as reported malicious activity, but IIRC, its in the opening of the article, and stated as a fact. I'm concerned there is an undue weight issue. Sephiroth storm (talk) 05:53, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

Hi Denniss, these informations are from Boeing 787 Dreamliner Production List from Planespotters.net (http://www.planespotters.net/Production_List/Boeing/787?p=1). I think that website is more actual than official Boeing website, which is updated only every month.

Dora Designation?[edit]

The entry states that there were two different guns, with Dora being cited separately at the bottom. Other sources on the web show these as two separate weapons. Can this be clarified to indicate whether 1) they were both called Dora, 2) only one was called Dora, or 3) that the Dora cited in the text had its own designation? Just trying to make this clear. Thanks. Andreldritch (talk) 19:59, 7 November 2014 (UTC) Andreldritch.

Tiger II Königstiger translation[edit]

Simply put, it's an argument of semantics. I am not claiming that "Königstiger" does not mean "Bengal Tiger". What I am saying is that "Königstiger" DOES mean "King Tiger" or "Royal tiger" (I won't use "or "Royal Tiger"" for the duration of the argument for the sake of brevity. Assume it is implied following every time I say "King Tiger")

Yes, Königstiger translates to "Bengal Tiger" because the name for "Panthera Tigris Tigris" which we refer to as "Bengal Tiger" in English is referred to as "Königstiger" in German.

So yes, Saying "Königstiger" translates to "Bengal Tiger" is in fact accurate. It's also accurate to say that "Bald Eagle" translates to "Weißkopfseeadler", because they both refer to "Haliaeetus leucocephalus". However it is also accurate to say that "Bald Eagle" translates to "Glatze Adler" or "Eagle that is Bald" In that same way it is accurate to say that "Königstiger" to "King Tiger" or "Tiger that is king". Your example earlier of "König Tiger" or "King named Tiger" was so very close to getting the point.

Simply put, König means "King", "Tiger" means "Tiger". "Königstiger" means "King Tiger". "Panthera Tigris Tigris" is called "Königstiger" in German, and "Bengal Tiger" in English. It's also called "Bengalische Tiger" or even "Bengal Tiger" in German, too.

"Königstiger" Translates to "King Tiger" but MEANS "Bengal Tiger".


In summary: To say that translating "Königstiger" as "King Tiger" is in error is false. "Königstiger" does indeed mean "Bengal Tiger", but to say that the PzKpfw VI Ausf. B was nicknamed "Königstiger" because it was being compared to the tiger from India is silly. PzKpfw VI Ausf. B was very clearly nicknamed "Königstiger" because it was the "King" of the tiger tanks. To be blunt, John Buckley (the author you cite) was a fool who got a bit of trivia and wrote it in a book without logically considering the source of his information. At least in the aspect of that condescending "correction" on the translation of "Königstiger".

"Königstiger" translates to "tiger that is king" but refers to "panthera tigris tigris" (Bengal Tiger) just like "bald eagle" translates to "Glatze Adler" (Eagle that is bald) but refers to "haliaeetus leucocephalus"(Weißkopfseeadler) .


I have never said that "Königstiger" does not mean "Bengal tiger". I have merely said it ALSO means "King tiger"

You are not getting the point, you can't cut a word into multiple parts, translate these parts and expect an accurate translation. The germans hardly nicknamed the Tiger II as King of the Tiger tanks, rather a bigger/larger Tiger tank (such an animal is named Königstiger). Even 'Royal Tiger' would be more correct than King Tiger as this was an old/alternative name for the Bengal Tiger. BTW 'bald' is an adjective and would be translated as 'haarloser' or 'glatzköpfiger' Adler in this context (incorrect anyway as it has to be treated as a name so two words in english happen to become one word in german). --Denniss (talk) 03:05, 26 November 2014 (UTC)
Upon delving into the deeper etymology of the German word Königstiger, I will conceded that "Royal Tiger" would be a more appropriate translation, as would "King's Tiger" or "Kingly Tiger", which can easily be shortened to "King Tiger" for conversational purposes, but it would not be proper. However, once more, to say that Königstiger translates to "Bengal Tiger" ONLY is not true.
If you want to know what the Germans mean by the word "Königstiger" just go to the de.wiki artical for Königstiger, where the mass german conciousness very clearly states that the origin of the word "Königstiger" is "Royal Tiger". https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/K%C3%B6nigstiger#Etymologie
Very clearly, any actual German you talk to will tell you that Königstiger does in fact mean "Royal Tiger" but yes, it refers to Panthera tigris tigris. It is because panthera tigris tigris is called "Bengal Tiger" in English that Königstiger translates to Bengal Tiger.
Königshaus means "King's house" but translates to "Royal Family", Königswasser means "King's water" but translates to "Aqua Regia" (Interestingly enough we refer to it in the latin in english. Latin Translation is "royal water") Königskerze means "King's Candle" but translates to "Verbascum", a plant. Königskobra means "King's Cobra" and translates to "King Cobra". Königstiger means "King's Tiger" but translates to "Bengal Tiger".
And thank you for the additional information on "Bald" in German. The phrase "Bald Eagle" translates to Both as "Haarloser adler" and "Weißkopfseeadler" Both are accurate translations. One translation is referring to the literal "eagle that is bald" and the other translation is referring to the understood "haliaeetus leucocephalus".
"Königstiger" translates to both "Royal tiger" and "Bengal tiger". One translation referring to "Tiger that is king" the other referring to "Panthera tigris tigris"

Chesipiero (talk) 18:30, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

non prodotta = not produced. That's already -150. Of Serie V only (or possibly only) 17 were produced by SAI, of Serie XIII only 41 were produced by Macchi (I assume they switched to C.205). Breda seems a bit more complicated, by Armistice they had built/delivered 588 C.202 (up to MM91891 of Series XII, minus MM91880), further 61 of 82 expected Series XII were built until April? 44. Breda Series XV stated as in production but no? deliveries. A similar production table with proper explanations is printed in Ali d'Italia 22 on page 54. --Denniss (talk) 22:13, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

Panther tank revert[edit]

Hello,

Could you please explain why you have undone my recent edit?

The given source as reference: 1 2 does only contain a 30° obliquity within a limited range up to 2000m. There's simple no cogency of proof that you can draw the conclusion from it, that 1) Battle encounters exceeding 2000 m and 2) that the performance of the gun had much grater divergence than A) any other contemporary gun at time of similar caliber or B) significant more loss of perforation than the KwK 36. In fact, if you compare the performances of each both at 90° (page 61) from "WWII Ballistics: Armor and Gunnery" you can see the diffrence is virtually nothing. So please don't lay on assumptions and assertions of such kind from third party sites without any handfest proofs. Thanks 79.141.163.7 (talk) 11:29, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi Denniss, as you can see below, the "Turkish Army vehicles" category includes the Leopard 2, as well as dozens of other foreign-sourced vehicles. The category is not military vehicles produced by Turkey, but vehicles used by the Turkish Army. You can either add that category to the Leopard 2 page, or remove all those vehicles from that category.

"vandalism" is a baseless accusation[edit]

The casualty list I purported is one that was issued by the US military, the entire period referred to as the battle of the bulge was the period when those casualties were issued, however in the pursuit of fairness, I added it back to the casualty list with a modification — Preceding unsigned comment added by 138.73.72.189 (talk) 22:12, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

Focke-Wulf Fw 189[edit]

I noticed your revert of my edit on Focke-Wulf Fw 189. I corrected a spelling error which you have put back. If you insist on using British English it should be spelt manoeuvrability not manoeuverability. Perhaps you would like to correct the error yourself and not just revert without explanation.

why did you revert my edit? --188.105.118.172 (talk) 08:00, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

Battle of Berlin[edit]

Hello. Can you please tell me why you reverted this edit of mine? Karl Dönitz was Hitler's successor as head of state of Germany, so I don't understand why including him is controversial. When you go to revert an edit, it says "If you are undoing an edit that is not vandalism, explain the reason in the edit summary. Do not use the default message only". You didn't leave an edit summary when you reverted my edit, implying that my edit was vandalism, which it wasn't. --64.132.0.201 (talk) 22:57, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

AMD Socket 754 wiki page shows inaccurate information[edit]

I was trying to research evidence of what I've been doing for more than 10 years with decoding memory fail addresses and found the Socket 754 page to have inaccurate information. To confirm the correct information I was providing, I found that the functional data sheet is not readily available from AMD's website, but I have an archive of documents, some of which are marked NDA. If the screen capture link worked, then you'll see for yourself that AMD documented the Socket 754 actually does support up to four registered DIMMs (RDIMMs).

As I am writing this response, I have open the AMD Functional Data Sheet 754 Pin Package, revision 3.18, October 2004. On page 35 of this document, and noted in my edits, pins E5, C4, E6, D6, E7, E8, C8, and D8 are labeled, respectively, MEMCS_L[0], MEMCS_L[1], MEMCS_L[2], MEMCS_L[3], MEMCS_L[4], MEMCS_L[5], MEMCS_L[6], and MEMCS_L[7]. These are the eight chip select pins. With each DIMM slot having two chip selects at that point in time, Socket 754 can support four DIMM slots. This same list of pins is shown on page 45 of the document.

Granted, most of the boards I had access to back in the day had only two DIMM slots, with the lower pair of chip selects assigned to channel A and the upper pair of chip selects assigned to channel B. The ability to buy motherboards with only two or three DIMM slots is not proof that this socket only supported three DIMMs. The proof of support for four DIMMs is in the document.

AMD Functional Data Sheet 754 Pin Package, page 15, section 2.4.2 "Memory Controller", document revision 3.18, October 2004

If you have questions, please send an email to me at chip.programmer@att.net.

Chip.programmer (talk) 18:31, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

Four DIMM slot support is not dual-channel, there are simply insufficient external data lines to be connected to two separate channels (there's a reason for the socket 939/940 to be named as such due to increased pins and external data lines). Three or four DIMMS are supported in single channel mode. With 3x unbuffered DIMMS you typically see boards reduce memclock to lowest value of 100 MHz to compensate for high load and signal degradation on the memory signal lines.--Denniss (talk) 23:45, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

Fix, don't revert[edit]

Recent Edit at List of Boeing 737 MAX orders[edit]

Hello,

I'd like to let you know that the edit you made to List of Boeing 737 MAX orders has been reinstated. I have looked on Wikipedia and found no consensus leading to your claim. And also for an FYI, whenever an airline committed to purchasing some Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, their commitments were stated in the article. The table below is only for firm orders. So please do not revert the changes because the information that is currently is correct. If you choose to revert it to the incorrect edit, this can lead to a possible edit war. So I warn you once again, please do not revert the changes. And also like I said in the edit summary, "There was no consensus. Please do not state false claims."

Revert on Airbus A380[edit]

Do you have a reason for this rollback at Airbus A380? It appeared to be a constructive edit, and you didn't provide a reason for reverting. Conifer (talk) 20:32, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

The referenced data is still of March 2015, has not been updated to April yet. So this change was unsourced. --Denniss (talk) 20:43, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
But unsourced content is not one of the reasons to use rollback (WP:ROLLBACK). Conifer (talk) 07:05, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

Airbus A330neo 14% weniger ...[edit]

hi dennis, can you please somehow explain how 14% less fuel can be different for the plane and per passenger? i understood the size of the plane stays the same. the sentence "most cost efficient blabla on the market" copied off a vendors webpage does not sound NPOV imo as well. --ThurnerRupert (talk) 03:13, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

Ever heard of aircraft equipped with different seat density? This figure is calculated for an aircraft with a specific amount of seats and may change with more or less seats installed.

regarding INS Arihant at launch.jpg usage.[edit]

hello, i came here clear a doubt that i have about this picture File:INS Arihant at launch.jpg as i have very little knowledge about copyright and commons rules and guidelines, so if possible can you please explain me why this picture cannot be added on Future of the Indian Navy Submarines-Nuclear powered-Arihant class- picture section but allowed only on Arihant-class submarine and INS Arihant. what makes this picuture different from others and is it in anyway possible to add this picture in any other related page? thank you :) Nicky mathew (talk) 12:31, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

Sockpuppetry by Tirgil34 on Commons[edit]

Hi, Denniss, I've noticed that you've done a great job blocking sockpuppets of Tirgil34 at Wikimedia Commons. Some of his CheckUser-blocked accounts are however still unblocked on Commons, even accounts that have made edits. I have listed these at Wikipedia:Long-term abuse/Tirgil34. On Wikipedia, article creations by sockpuppets of blocked users qualify for speedy deletion in accordance with WP:G5.

Airbus A400M Crash[edit]

You reverted my amendment concerning the crash of the A400M although the source was clearly documented. It could hardly be considered a totally unreliable source and I did use the word "apparently". It seems to me that it is better for readers of Wikipedia to look at the reference and judge for themselves than to be denied the information altogether - which would be a form of censorship.

Carlos Latuff[edit]

Hi Denniss. The reason why I'm writing to you is because you said here: "Do not include any form of one-sided/biased form of this allegation. I believe the variant before revert and protection presented both sides and was rather neutral, in this form I would support inclusion." As far as I understand from your message, what you meant is that you would support an inclusion of that information in the lead as it was before this edit. If that's the case, I ask you to please change that comment to say "include" instead of "Do not include" at the beginning of the sentence, since you are saying that basically you support including the accusations of antisemitism in the lead (as well as Latuff's denial). Some people may get confused because of the "Do not include" bold in the beginning. If that's not the case and I misunderstood your point, I extend my sincerest apologies.--Averysoda (talk) 06:52, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

8.8 cm KwK 36 Tiger I details[edit]

Regarding the 8.8 cm KwK 36 page: as I mentioned in my edit explanation, details about the Tiger I's armor and power should be written on its own article, not on the article of its cannon. If you insist to add such details, at least explain your point when undoing my edit.

Speedy deletion questions and concerns[edit]

Hello Denniss. Notification: speedy deletion nomination of Template:Danny Dean Phillips. (TW)

I was under the assumption that I could go with step 7 and that I could start a new article in my Sandbox first as a draft article. My question is should I create the article in word before using my user space to avoid deletion, or is there something I missed? I don't plan on creating my article in one day, I want to take my time and do a good job, then have someone like your review it for me. I was technically going to enter my citations and reliable sources at the end.

The notability guidelines I followed but I am taking my time and did not enter my references and reliable sources I only had one sentence up. I am not creating a page on myself or group either. I picked my subject randomly for a school project over summer break. From all the research and references I have gathered my subject is very notable and worthy of a page and has been since the early 80's.

I suppose I should of went the template userspace draft route, any suggestions on an easy way to draft an article first, then review, then go live after its perfect?

Copyvio T-34[edit]

You have reverted a sentence which is clearly a copyvio. As my edit with a word by word quote from Zaloga got reverted twice: 1, 2 the other sentence should not be in place aswell, as mine was a genuine Zaloga quote. Please remove it. CobhamLaine (talk) 19:08, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

You do not appear to grasp what Zaloga is saying, that the T-34 usage in 1941 was a "dismal failure" in terms of how it was used. He is not saying at all that the T-34 was a "dismal failure" in subsequent years, which is what you appear to be attempting to assert. Please be more careful in the use of sources. Irondome (talk) 19:36, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

Sorry what? You don't appear to understand, the "dismal failure" is meant for its overall battlefield performance, which is true for the entire War. Or how could you explain such dreadful overall performance and high casualty rate among the T-34? The poor training quality remained, the poor strategic use in command remained and this is highlighted in multiple passages in the Book.

Also the sentence: "Although its armour and armament were surpassed later in the war, it has been often credited as the most effective, efficient, and influential tank design of World War II" is clearly a copyvio and should be removed. CobhamLaine (talk) 20:00, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

I have removed the other sentence, see talk. Do not revert again! CobhamLaine (talk) 20:07, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

No, it means 1941. I do not give a toss about a quote from a book that ripped off a Wiki article, but do not attempt to reinsert a misleading Zaloga quote. Take this to the relevant talk page, please do not litter a user's talk page. Irondome (talk) 20:17, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

You left me a message on my talk to discuss it; you refused!! I left a message on Denniss to discuss another issues. Take your own snooty advise and move along. CobhamLaine (talk) 20:23, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

I sense you and the WP community will fall out rather dramatically. Pip pip! Irondome (talk) 20:30, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

Denniss, I feel like something needs to be cleared up here, based on the subjects of this section and the previous one: When directly quoting a source, a citation isn’t enough. Without quotation marks (or <blockquote> etc.) around the quotation, it’s plagiarism, and quite possibly copyright infringement. Neither of these things is okay—at all, let alone on Wikipedia. So when restoring text copied from elsewhere, please add quotation marks. —67.14.236.50 (talk) 06:17, 25 August 2015 (UTC)
