WP:MILHIST[edit]

Hello FockeWulf FW 190 (nice user name), and welcome to Wikipedia. Based on your edits, I think it'd be a good idea for you to check out the military history Wikiproject, a place where editors interested in Military history can ask each other questions and work together. I'm part of it myself (my interests are primarily naval history) and I think it's well worth joining. Howicus (talk) 02:01, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

Welcome to MILHIST[edit]

Deleting old citations[edit]

Thanks for your edit on TDL-4. Note however that you shouldn't delete citations just because the URL is dead; instead try to repair it. ··gracefool 💬 20:55, 15 March 2016 (UTC)

Your last edits[edit]

Hi! I reverted some of your last revisions, because these things are already present in the navbox in bottom of the article. So there's no reason to double it. Anyway thank you for your interest in editing these articles! --RezonansowyakaRezy (talk | contribs) 15:18, 25 March 2016 (UTC)

Instead of this you can consider to add a new item to the list in the navbox, it's right here: {{Hacking in the 1980s}}. For example: 1260 (computer virus), has been created in 1989, it can be included in this navbox, so I added it and included the navbox in the bottom of that article. --RezonansowyakaRezy (talk | contribs) 16:15, 25 March 2016 (UTC)

Great job noticing the "badware" in the article malware, I visited that website and was suspicious and was about to remove it, searched books about it and did not find any, though of good faith and left it there :D . 967Bytes (Contact) 18:07, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

Computer virus wont be soon a featured article, it will take more time than I thought :/, English good/featured article standards are way too amazing ^_^, I have downloaded so far Kali Linux latest version and started making virus source codes in order to post it in the article, but the encrypted virus -in order to make stealth virus- consumes a huge amount of power for long time in order to encrypt the virus, it's rain season, and as a 100% dependable on solar power (after Saudi_Arabian-led_intervention_in_Yemen bombarded all electricity power plants to pro Houthi areas) I have to stick to eco friendly applications that does not consume CPU resource :D. any ways, I am reading those books I have downloaded, I think you noticed that by the references I used:

  1. Computer Network Security and Cyber Ethics - 4th Edition
  2. Computer Viruses - the gist of it - Erwin Calamer
  3. Guide to Computer Network Security 3rd Edition
  4. Hacking Bootcamp - How to Hack Computers, Basic Security and Penetration Testing - David Maxwell
  5. How to Hack Computers_ how to h - Joel Tope
  6. Computer Viruses for Dummies (ISBN - 0764574183)
  7. Computer Security Principles and Practice (2nd Edition)
  8. Computer Security Fundamentals 2nd ed. - W. (Chuck) Easttom (Pearson, 2012) BBS
  9. The Giant Black Book of Computer Viruses

can't ready them all, I just search every book for the topic I am writing on to use it as a reference, which seems they cover most of it so far. If you have any suggestion or any other good book to use please don't hesitate to post it's name here, and I will obtain it in some way :) 967Bytes (Contact) 11:46, 4 May 2016 (UTC)

Kevin Mitnick comes to mind, his books may have some information on the social aspects of a computer virus.

List of resource exhaustion attack tools[edit]

Hi, FockeWulf.

I moved the list of attack tools you added to resource exhaustion attack to the above new article.

Thanks for the contribution. For what it's worth, though, it needed a lot of scrubbing. Specifically:

  • there were many grammar and spelling errors
  • you didn't always use full sentences
  • none of the references have any information other than URLs (they should have titles, website names, access dates, etc.)
    • this problem still exists, so it'd be great if you could add the additional info (there are third-party web apps that automate this)
  • some of the additions may not be notable
  • relevant terms weren't wikilinked

Best, Risc64 (talk) 03:08, 7 May 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for improving the article and creating the list.

I appreciate feedback and see some things I need to improve on.

Also could some information be shared on where I may find the web applications for references?

May 2016[edit]

Information icon Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you tried to give Mobile virus a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into another page with a different name. This is known as a "cut-and-paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page (the tab may be hidden in a dropdown menu for you). This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Requests for history merge. Thank you. Hut 8.5 19:00, 7 May 2016 (UTC)

Edits to CloudFlare[edit]

Information.svg
Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia, but please do not delete entire sections without giving a proper justification. There may certainly be good reasons to remove entire sections from articles, but doing so requires justification. Valid reasons for blanking sections include (but are not limited to):

Please note that I don't like it is NOT a valid reason for removing information from Wikipedia.

You may cite your reasons in the edit summary, or in the article's talk page if you need more room than the edit summary affords.

Thanks again,

May 2016[edit]

Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia. However, talk pages are meant to be a record of a discussion; deleting or editing legitimate comments, as you did at Talk:Mailinator, is considered bad practice, even if you meant well. Even making spelling and grammatical corrections in others' comments is generally frowned upon, as it tends to irritate the users whose comments you are correcting. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. TJH2018talk 20:53, 30 May 2016 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Page hijacking, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Hacker. 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.

The Defender of the Wiki Barnstar[edit]

WikiDefender Barnstar.png The Defender of the Wiki Barnstar
For your work defending computer virus articles against the technical support scammers.

Since I locked them out of their favorite article, Koobface, they have been spreading to other virus articles. I protected Conficker just now. If you see another article that is getting targeted by the scammer, please leave me a note and I will semi-protect it. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 18:43, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

Re: Semi-protect request[edit]

Re your message: Done! Zombie (computer science) is likely the next one that needs semi-protection. I have put it on my watchlist. If another IP or account does the usual thing, I will semi-protect it. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 21:30, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

Re: Possible COI articles & users[edit]

Re your message: Sorry about the delay in getting back to you. I've been very busy outside of Wikipedia. Most of those accounts have been inactive for a very long time. The recent articles have mostly been moved to the creator's user space. I would recommend just cleaning up whatever else is suspect on the other articles. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 03:16, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

Reverting multiple edits[edit]

Just thought I'd let you know there are more efficient ways to revert multiple edits. You can go to the history page, click the timestamp of the last good revision, click the edit tab, enter an edit summary explaining your revert and then save your edit. Or to make it easier, you can use Twinkle or request rollback permission. nyuszika7h (talk) 13:59, 25 August 2016 (UTC)

Rollback granted[edit]

Wikipedia Rollbacker.svg

Hi FockeWulf FW 190. After reviewing your request for "rollbacker", I have enabled rollback on your account. Keep in mind these things when going to use rollback:

  • Getting rollback is no more momentous than installing Twinkle.
  • Rollback should be used to revert clear cases of vandalism only, and not good faith edits.
  • Rollback should never be used to edit war.
  • If abused, rollback rights can be revoked.
  • Use common sense.

If you no longer want rollback, contact me and I'll remove it. Also, for some more information on how to use rollback, see Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback (even though you're not an admin). I'm sure you'll do great with rollback, but feel free to leave me a message on my talk page if you run into troubles or have any questions about appropriate/inappropriate use of rollback. Thank you for helping to reduce vandalism. Happy editing! Widr (talk) 16:03, 25 August 2016 (UTC)

Re: semi-protect request[edit]

Re your message: Done times three. =) I also blocked the accounts involved with the spamming. I left the IPs unblocked as they are dynamic and no point blocking them now. I'm sure they will now move on to a different target. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 02:53, 28 August 2016 (UTC)

Fixing redirects[edit]

Hello. I've noticed you fixing some wikilinks to avoid redirects - per WP:NOTBROKEN, there's actually no need to worry about this, in most cases. --McGeddon (talk) 15:03, 30 August 2016 (UTC)

Blitzkrieg revert[edit]

Hi, you removed my edit from Blitzkrieg about Pervitin. Then perhaps you should also remove that claim from page [1] ?

And did you check the Spiegel reference which I have linked therein [2] ?

I am not going to try to put it there again, I am seriously tired by wikipedia reverting every useful edit.91.232.52.167 (talk) 10:23, 15 October 2016 (UTC)

Mailinator[edit]

I've removed proposed deletion from the Mailinator article, as I believe the subject to be notable and improvement to be possible. I note that Spamgourmet and TrashMail also have their own articles and I think Mailinator is equally notable.

Merging all three services in to Disposable email address might make sense, but I think the best thing is to improve the article.

Declined speedy deletion nomination of Indoona[edit]

Hello FockeWulf FW 190. Speedy deletion work is important and I do appreciate the effort. I would just ask that you please review the criteria carefully because accuracy is also important. On that issue, I have declined your speedy deletion nomination of Indoona as an article that does not credibly indicate the importance or significance of the topic under CSD A7. That criterion did not apply because it is only for articles on real persons or groups, individual animals, organisations, web content and organised events. This article's topic is not within the ambit of that list. Adam9007 (talk) 22:37, 16 December 2016 (UTC)

Hi there, I'm HasteurBot. I just wanted to let you know that Draft:List of tools for Denial-of-service attacks, a page you created, has not been edited in 5 months. The Articles for Creation space is not an indefinite storage location for content that is not appropriate for articlespace.

If your submission is not edited soon, it could be nominated for deletion. If you would like to attempt to save it, you will need to improve it.

You may request Userfication of the content if it meets requirements.

Your speedy message[edit]

Hello! Thanks for the speedy notification. However your text say "you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion".". There is no such button. Also the text is somewhat misleading, since it links "Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable." Speedy isn't about notability, it's about "credible claim of significance", which is basically a criterion about whether the thing actually exists or not. You may want to fix up your text, while I contest this speedy. Thanks! --grin 07:30, 26 October 2017 (UTC)

User group for Military Historians[edit]

Greetings,

"Military history" is one of the most important subjects when speak of sum of all human knowledge. To support contributors interested in the area over various language Wikipedias, we intend to form a user group. It also provides a platform to share the best practices between military historians, and various military related projects on Wikipedias. An initial discussion was has been done between the coordinators and members of WikiProject Military History on English Wikipedia. Now this discussion has been taken to Meta-Wiki. Contributors intrested in the area of military history are requested to share their feedback and give suggestions at Talk:Discussion to incubate a user group for Wikipedia Military Historians.

April 2018 Milhist Backlog Drive[edit]

G'day all, please be advised that throughout April 2018 the Military history Wikiproject is running its annual backlog elimination drive. This will focus on several key areas:

  • tagging and assessing articles that fall within the project's scope
  • adding or improving listed resources on Milhist's task force pages
  • updating the open tasks template on Milhist's task force pages
  • creating articles that are listed as "requested" on the project's various lists of missing articles.

As with past Milhist drives, there are points awarded for working on articles in the targeted areas, with barnstars being awarded at the end for different levels of achievement.

The drive is open to all Wikipedians, not just members of the Military history project, although only work on articles that fall (broadly) within the scope of military history will be considered eligible. This year, the Military history project would like to extend a specific welcome to members of Wikipedia:WikiProject Women in Red, and we would like to encourage all participants to consider working on helping to improve our coverage of women in the military. This is not the sole focus of the edit-a-thon, though, and there are aspects that hopefully will appeal to pretty much everyone.

The drive starts at 00:01 UTC on 1 April and runs until 23:59 UTC on 30 April 2018. Those interested in participating can sign up here.
