New topics[edit]

Hi, just a note, new topics need to be placed at the bottom of any talk pages, not the top, as they are more immediately recognised and found by other editors and bots for archiving purposes. More info. at WP:TALKNEW, if you're curious. Cheers, Ma®©usBritish{chat} 17:58, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

Hi Dmanrock29, if you are going to post that Hernandez died, then please cite and provide us with a reliable verifiable source. I know that I couldn't find one. Take care. Tony the Marine (talk) 05:03, 23 December 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for February 23[edit]

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

British Expeditionary Force order of battle (1914)[edit]

Dmanrock29, you recently added a picture File:BEF CAV DIV1.jpg to British Expeditionary Force order of battle (1914). I believe you also added this picture to Commons. Just to say that it is incorrect. 5th Cavalry Brigade was never part of The Cavalry Division in WWI. I have amended British Expeditionary Force order of battle (1914) to clarify this. Can you amend the picture? Or remove it from the article?

I would also add that designating the Artillery Brigades with the "X" symbol is misleading. Each brigade commanded two batteries so was, at most, the size of a small battalion (about 600 strong). Please see, for example, Note A in III Brigade, Royal Horse Artillery for more details. Likewise, the batteries should not be designated with the "I" symbol implying battalion sized units - they were company sized (about 200 strong).

By the way, a British Cavalry Regiment was battalion sized - about 550 strong. Similarly, a British squadron is and was company sized. Please see British cavalry during the First World War#The cavalry regiment. Hamish59 (talk) 16:57, 6 April 2014

I've gone ahead and removed the picture until I can amend it. But the single "I" is staying because that in fact represents an company sized unit. A battalion would be indicated by "II" please see NATO Military Symbols for Land Based Systems
I also do not understand why there was clarification needed as the to the size of British regiments, squadrons and troops? Seeing as how a British cavalry regiment was (and still is) a battalion sized formation they are represented ad such in the graphic.
Thank you for your corrections. They will definetly be in my revision. Dmanrock29 (talk) 22:28, 6 April 2014 (UTC)
My mistake. Hamish59 (talk) 09:01, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

In case you weren't aware ...[edit]

For-your-information, you have added quite a number of copyright images to a number of pages, without adding a FUR (Fair use rationale) to the image page (for why it is acceptable/reasonable to use the image on that page). (Just one example: Adding File:Aust-Army-WO2.png to Keith Payne)
Unfortunately, there are only two options: 1) Don't do it. 2) Add a FUR to the image page. Adding a FUR isn't really all that hard, BUT, you DO have to do it. Cheers, Pdfpdf (talk) 08:51, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

Sandbox - Albany Fire[edit]

Just checked out the Albany Fire start in your sandbox. It's a very good start but I have a few suggestions. First, try and vary or add to your your sources a bit. I realize that the City website is going to be the primary source of information, but perhaps there are sites operated by the union (which you link to in the table), fire buffs or fire department history sites that can also add to the substance of the page. Second, I would remove the extra spaces in the Apparatus Staffing section. Anything you can do to cut out dead space in an article can be visually helpful. Otherwise, great start! There aren't many active users on this WikiProject anymore, so feel free to recruit some! Cheers! --Daysleeper47 (talk) 01:16, 3 October 2014 (UTC)

October 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Orange County Fire Authority may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "{}"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail.

Europe 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Europe/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like Germany, Italy, the Benelux countries, Iberian Peninsula, Romania, Slovenia etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. If you would like to see masses of articles being improved for Europe and your specialist country like Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon, sign up today and once the challenge starts a contest can be organized. This is a way we can target every country of Europe, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant and also sign under any country sub challenge on the page that you might contribute to! Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 05:47, 6 November 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia:WikiProject United States/The 50,000 Challenge[edit]

This effort began on November 1, 2016 and to reach our goal, we will need editors like you to participate, expand, and create. See more here!
