Military of Australia and Military history WikiProject[edit]

Hi Hossen27. I recently found out about your portal in the Wikipedia:Portal/Proposals discussion. I've been assisting on the Portal:United States Marine Corps (USMC) that was discussed along with your Military of Australia portal. From my work on the USMC portal, I found out about the Military history WikiProject, and have joined the project and the associated "United States military history task force". The WikiProject has a country task forces - including British, Canadian, Chinese, French, Polish ... We are noticably missing an Australian task force. It would be a natural fit for you and others who are associated with your portal.

From my experience, it is a very nice collaborative community. Though individuals may sign on to a particular task force, there is cooperation and collaboration of the larger group. (I've had the pleasure of assisting with British World War I articles.)

I invite you to visit and consider joining us. Here is a current task forces list.

ERcheck @ 02:55, 31 May 2006 (UTC)

  • OK ... I should have checked the list. I see you are a member of the WPMILHIST, so my remarks introducing the project are not needed. However, I don't know whether you are following the discussion on needed/suggested task forces. I really would like to see an Australian task force. Would you be interested in leading it? —ERcheck @ 02:59, 31 May 2006 (UTC)
    • Welcome back! Thank you for your response. With your experience on the Portal and your interest in the topic, I personally think you would be a great fit. I'm not sure of what level of commitment it would take, but it would certainly be nice to know that Australia has its own task force. It would probably give you a larger community to draw from for help. For example, I am only a member of the US task force, but when the general request was put forward (on the WikiProject talk page) to convert the British WWI unit infoboxes to the new Military history boxes, I volunteered to help. (mentioned above). I look forward to hearing more from you. —ERcheck (talk) @ 12:03, 9 June 2006 (UTC)
      • Knee surgery... hope it goes well. As far as the Australian task force, you should coordinate with Kirill Lokshin (talk) (the Military history WikiProject lead coordinator). He'll help get things set up for the task force. Do you have a few people who will work you on the task force? —ERcheck (talk) @ 03:28, 10 June 2006 (UTC)
        • I would be very interested in joining an Australian military history task force. --Nick Dowling 12:34, 17 June 2006 (UTC)

This is great ... I'm very much looking forward to the establishment of the Australian task force. From time to time, I find myself running across articles Australian military articles — it will be great to have someone looking after them. —ERcheck (talk) @ 13:21, 17 June 2006 (UTC)

  • Ouch! I hope the pain goes away quickly and your recovery is uneventful. You and Nick Dowling should make a great team to start the task force — both being valuable contributors to the area already. Though I have very little knowledge in the area, if there is something that you need help with, feel free to ask me. I'll do my best. —ERcheck (talk) @ 13:34, 17 June 2006 (UTC)

Excellent! I've gone ahead and created the task force page for you here; all of the background red-tape stuff is either done or will be done momentarily. The most obvious thing do start with, in my opinion, would be to tag at least some of the more prominent articles in the area (as described on that page); hopefully that'll get some other people to join up. If you have any other questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask me. Thanks! Kirill Lokshin 16:03, 17 June 2006 (UTC)

Military history assessment department[edit]

Also could you tell me if anybody can help in the assessment department of the Military history WikiProject or is it a bit of a select group.

Yes, anyone can assess. (I double checked on this to be sure.) The Assessment Department page give information about assessments, as well as guidance on the different designations. (The designations are case-sensitive, i.e., Stub, not stub; and Start, not start.) —ERcheck (talk) @ 13:46, 11 June 2006 (UTC)

RAAF squadron template[edit]

Thanks for developing a template to ease navigation between the RAAF's flying squadrons. It looks great and works well IMO. --Nick Dowling 12:37, 17 June 2006 (UTC)

Australian task force - congratulations[edit]

Congratulations on getting the task force off the ground. You already have a number of participants signed up in addition to you and Nick. (Hope you're feeling better.) —ERcheck (talk) @ 15:07, 18 June 2006 (UTC)

  • Great work! 354 pages (and counting) under the Australian task force. (I've added a few in my spare time.) Hope recovery is progressing well. —ERcheck (talk) @ 02:32, 21 June 2006 (UTC)
  • I'm a little confused at the situation - my understanding (based on the page) is that the task force is dedicated to Australian military history. Project ADF still exists at this point (there was no vote regarding a merge) so do I understand correctly that Project ADF will be looking after current military information, and the task force which will be historical information? Obviously there will be some overlap in terms of shared articles, but there shouldn't be any overlap on content. As anybody has probably noticed I've only made contributions to current information, so under current arrangements I probably won't have much to do with the task force, though happy to help where I can.

License tagging for Image:John Gellibrand 2.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:John Gellibrand 2.jpg.

Australian War Memorial copyright[edit]

Hi Hossen, I think that you're asking for trouble by lifting slabs of text from the AWM website. My reading of the AWM copyright statement at: http://www.awm.gov.au/website/copyright.htm is that this material can only be published with the AWM's permission - I don't think that reproducing it on the internet counts as being "personal, non-commercial use" or "use within your organisation". I'd suggest that you paraphrase the AWM's material rather than reproducing it with only minor changes. --Nick Dowling 10:33, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

battleships[edit]

Hi there; I know that the articles I originally authored on a large number of Victorian era Royal Navy battleships belongb bto Wikipedia and not to me; that is not an issue. But I would be grateful if you could take time to explain why you have rated most of them as Stub-category? Looking at the stated parameters, I would have expected them to be Start-class. Why am I wrong, please?--Anthony.bradbury 17:48, 15 September 2006 (UTC)

I wouldn't dream of changing the categories. I'm not arguing, just asking.--Anthony.bradbury 10:00, 16 September 2006 (UTC)

Hi Hossen, How do you add units to the calender? I don't seem to be smart enough to figure it out ;) cheers, --Nick Dowling 11:13, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

I just figured it out - I must be smarter than I thought. This is a great addition to the portal by the way. Thanks for all your hard work on this. --Nick Dowling 11:27, 19 September 2006 (UTC)
