I didn't check the email option.KTo288 08:13, 6 October 2006 (UTC) Your edits to Human wave attack are great, and the articles quality continues to improve because of it. While the content is certainly good, the style is poor. All contributions should adhere to the standard Manual of Style, which includes the necessity for there to be such things as two spaces after the period on the end of a sentence, one space after a comma, and other important punctuation quirks. Abiding by these guidelines will ensure no one has to go back and fix a great deal of these trivial mistakes. -Markusbradley 15:43, 25 October 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the tip, and thanks to everybody who has had to clear up after me. Okay, and I promise to read the punctiation guide.KTo288 20:15, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

Torture edits[edit]

Hi. I've removed your recent torture based edits to both 24 and Torture. Both edits wre based on synthesizing an idea, roughly that '24 is responsible for people accepting torture more than before 24 was around', an idea which you have synthesized based on three citations. However, not one of these articles actually tied the percentages nor increases to the show's popularity, nor demonstrated any sort of overlap between those who NOW accept it but didn't before 24. As such, your additions are really original research, which the link shows is not appropriate on Wikipedia. It's an interesting idea, but I doubt that you'll ever be able to substantiate it through any amount of citation, because there are far MORE things contributing than a single TV show, including post-9/11 fears, ignorance of other cultures, fear-mongering by government officials, hyperbolic panic-based reporting by the media, general anxieties about being hit again, and so on. Interesting articles, though, and there's probably some way to tie in the one that DOES discuss Jack AND torture into the criticisms section, and the one about statistical acceptances into the torture article. However, conflating tortue acceptance with the popularity of a TV show is a bad idea. ThuranX 13:40, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

Re: torture in 24

I'll re-write those sections to remove any implicit connection between 24 and the increased acceptance of torture, since OR was your main concern. However I feel I am justified in writing that such criticisms have been made about 24 by third parties; and that it is seen as a factor in the normalisation of torture by the American military.Koonan the almost civilised 14:20, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

Noting criticism is justified, the entire other part is OR. There is NO support for the assertion that 24 is a factor in the citations you used. One journalist compares and contrasts the show's version of tortue against what is actually done, but he doesn't say a=b. ThuranX 14:22, 18 February 2007 (UTC)
That looks much better. thanks for finding a way to include it ans stay NPOV. ThuranX 20:51, 18 February 2007 (UTC)
Thank you. It wasn't as hard to do as I thought it might have been.Koonan the almost civilised 22:22, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

Wikipedia project Earth[edit]

I apologise if this seems as if I am dumping something very large and potentially difficult to deal with on you doorstep. However, you are the only person on the Discussion page for the merger of the History of the Danelaw article with the Danelaw article. So, I will make this suggestion to you, and I hope you can offer some helpfull opinion.

If you read my point of view on the discussion page (please do so before you continue...thanks) you will see my thoughts for the solution reach slightly far beyond the simple point in hand. It does though offer some close to hand sollution, in the creation of simple tables which can be put in the See also section of the main article, as Wikitables, or links to pages, which show the relevant timelines. This is simple enough, although the main point my views come to is that it could be the basis for a merger of the Wikipeadia history projects, on the whole, with the development of a map, like the Google map of the Earth, which plots the timeline information, in terms of spaciality, which is clearly a perfect way to illustrate history, with its events in proper context. Furtherly, this could be something which eventually links in with Google Earth itself, lets say, or something like it, with all the culture and power issues written in links which present themselves on the main map, from the names of national routements, and settlements, to the scale of their populations and productivities, on the geographical level.

Such a map could be a focus for all kinds of information, after history, in the spirit of the Wikicommunity indeed, in the sciences especially, with each source of information plotted on the map, with a link to it. Mainly the science behind the existence of the things on the map, like scyscrapers, bridges and tunnels, even factories and the things they produce, or the lifeforms which exist on the planet, which all have historic significances also, with architectural evolution of capitals in our lives, and the evolutional architecture of nature, maybe. Wikispecies, Wikinews, Wikibooks, Wiktionary, all these could be shown on the map, as one big Wikiproject.

I realise this is overtly ambitious, although to say it is over ambitious I think is going too far on the road to nothing special. The software at the core of the Wiki's existence is exactly the sort of software which could mean this sort of thing could be done. Anyway, I will now transfer the timeline to the Danelaw article in the See also section, on a separate Danelaw (Timeline) article. If this suffices, with additions to the History section, then sort out the links and get rid of the History of the Danelaw one.

AfD nomination of Fictional Q-ships[edit]

Fictional Q-ships, an article you created, has been nominated for deletion. We appreciate your contributions. However, an editor does not feel that Fictional Q-ships satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in the nomination space (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and the Wikipedia deletion policy). Your opinions on the matter are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Fictional Q-ships and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~). You are free to edit the content of Fictional Q-ships during the discussion but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion discussion. Thank you. Eyrian 16:46, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

I really am impressed by your excellent and comprehensive essay on this at the Afd. As you may gather, there have been a lot of similar ones initiated by the same few people, and any similar assistance you feel like giving will certainly be appreciated. Incidentally, is there a particular wikiproject involved with this? You might check that they have been notified, but remember to just inform them, not ask them to !vote in a particular way. DGG (talk) 01:25, 17 August 2007 (UTC)
It is not necessarily headed for deletion. Examine the dynamics of AfDs--there is always a good deal of pile-on voting that takes place over the first day or so, and then others will join in, probably starting sunday night. The results in general are about 1/4 keeps--and about another 1/4 which will be able to return in better shape. The overall dynamics of WP is that the most persistent people win. To some extent, this applies even to individuals, but much more to small groups. Myself, this is not my main concern, but I was challenged for not supporting the individual articles after I made a general comment about keeping them. I first supported only a few, but it became clear that would be useful to support everything that was even part-way decent, though of course not defend the indefensible.
I recognize you're primarily interested now in the Q-ships article. My advice is that this article needs at least a little sourcing and that it may be difficulty to find--sourcing for SF combat elements has often been a problem. I don't have the necessary knowledge to help with this part.DGG (talk) 20:26, 19 August 2007 (UTC)


I have initiated a deletion review of an AFD which you were involved in. You may wish to contribute to the discussion. Balancer 04:51, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

Re User:Spitfire19 report to WP:AIV[edit]

Just to let you know I am about to remove this report. There isn't sufficient warning notices but, more importantly, it isn't the blatent type of vandalism per your comments. I suggest you take up this matter at WP:ANI with a couple of example diffs. This can then be more carefully evaluated. Cheers. LessHeard vanU 21:45, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

Reporting of vandalism is not something I have ever done, so if an apology is needed for not following whatever procedure that is in place than it is freely given. (I've just read the the page properly and realise I was at fault. I was being lazy and just wanted to hand what I thought was a problem to someone else to deal with.) KTo288 22:10, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

Hi, Seeing you are a Cantonese speaker, I invite you to participate in Wikipedia:WikiProject Modern Chinese music, it is a great community and we will welcome your comments at any time ^^ Dengero 07:32, 31 October 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the invite, my editing style is to randomly edit anything that takes my fancy, joining a Wikiproject is a bit too disciplined for my tastes however I'll pop by sometime to see what help I can render.KTo288

Thank You[edit]

Thank you for taking Military helicopters from a poor stub into a good article nearing B-class status. I hope you continue to work on it. I will try to as well. Zephyrus67 16:43, 14 November 2007 (UTC)

no need to thank me, its been more than fun, have to give it a bit of a break, as I was beginning to get a bit obsessive about the article. KTo288 00:12, 15 November 2007 (UTC)

Central Market of Salamanca[edit]

I explained it on the talk page, but I'll drop you a personal note too. There's no copyright issues between the article and this page...according to the dates in the history and on the linked page, the Wiki article came first. The linked article probably copied Wikipedia (and I have a hunch they have the same author, but that's a different issue).--UsaSatsui (talk) 09:09, 7 December 2007 (UTC)

Invitation to Wikipedia meetup in London[edit]

Wikimedia UK logo

Date: 13:00 onwards, Sunday 10 August 2008

Venue: Penderel's Oak pub, Holborn WC1 map

More information: Wikipedia:Meetup/London 12


I noticed that you have listed yourself as a Wikipedian in London, so I thought you might like to come to one of our monthly social meetups. The next one is going to be on Sunday 10 August, which might well be rather short notice, but if you can't come this time, we try to have one every second Sunday of the month.

If you haven't been before, these meetups are mainly casual social events for Wikipedia enthusiasts in which we chat about Wikipedia and any other topics we fancy. It's a great way to meet some very keen Wikipedians, but we'd also love for you to come along if you're interested in finding out more about Wikipedia, other Wikimedia projects, or other collaborative wiki projects too.

The location is a pub that is quite quiet and family friendly on a Sunday lunchtime, so hopefully younger Wikipedians will also feel welcome and safe. Alcohol consumption is certainly not required!

Although the meetups are popular, many UK-based editors still don't know about them. It would be great to welcome some fresh faces, so I hope you can come along.

Oxford Wikimania 2010 and Wikimedia UK v2.0 Notice[edit]


As a regularly contributing UK Wikipedian, we were wondering if you wanted to contribute to the Oxford bid to host the 2010 Wikimania conference. Please see here for details of how to get involved, we need all the help we can get if we are to put in a compelling bid.

We are also in the process of forming a new UK Wikimedia chapter to replace the soon to be folded old one. If you are interested in helping shape our plans, showing your support or becoming a future member or board member, please head over to the Wikimedia UK v2.0 page and let us know. We plan on holding an election in the next month to find the initial board, who will oversee the process of founding the company and accepting membership applications. They will then call an AGM to formally elect a new board who after obtaining charitable status will start the fund raising, promotion and active support for the UK Wikimedian community for which the chapter is being founded.

You may also wish to attend the next London meet-up at which both of these issues will be discussed. If you can't attend this meetup, you may want to watch Wikipedia:Meetup, for updates on future meets.

We look forward to hearing from you soon, and we send our apologies for this automated intrusion onto your talk page!

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Berth (moorings), and it appears to be very similar to another Wikipedia page: Berth. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case. If you are intentionally moving or duplicating content, please be sure you have followed the procedure at Wikipedia:Splitting by acknowledging the duplication of material in edit summary to preserve attribution history.

This message was placed automatically, and it is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article and it would be appreciated if you could drop a note on the maintainer's talk page. CorenSearchBot (talk) 08:39, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

creation of separate article on G-20 2009 London Summit protests[edit]

hi - i see you created a separate article on the protests. i'm somewhat surprised to see it.

  • there was next-to-no discussion on the talk page...only that it seemed, some days ago (and many edits ago), to overwhelm the then-much-smaller main article and was, perhaps, in need of trimming; it was.
  • as a standalone article, it (the protest one) now has to be a fully flushed-out entry with "who, what, when, where, why" and will, i'm suspect, give even more weighting (which i doubt was your intent) to ancillary events of the summit, which after the dust settles a bit more, were relatively minor.

just my 2-cents' worth. regards. -- (talk) 12:54, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

About a picture[edit]

  • Hello sir... your picture "Rosebys,_Hounslow,_27-09-08.JPG" would be perfect as the cover for a musical project i'm working on. If i've read the CC licence correctly, i think i only need to credit you as the original photographer; but i thought that i would first check with you that it was OK to adapt this. Best regards, tomasz. 17:59, 23 November 2009 (UTC)
For my part, as the photographer, you're welcome to use it as you wish, thats what the CC license means. However you might wish to check with whatever remains of Rosebys about how they feel about you using an image of their sign (they or their administators the copyright to the actual sign.) Best of luck.KTo288 (talk) 18:18, 23 November 2009 (UTC)

Moving photos from Wikipedia to Commons[edit]

I have been advised it would be best for Wikipedia, if I would move all of my photos to Commons. One administrator has moved some of them, but didn't have the time to do them all. I tried to do one myself (even after reading up on how to do it), but apparently I still do not understand, because my one attempt failed. I sure would appreciate any recommendations you might have on how to accomplish the transfer. I only have dial-up access to the Internet; that might be part of the problem. [[1]] [[2]] Thanks, EditorASC (talk) 00:48, 17 February 2010 (UTC)

Best practise and perhaps easiest is to use Commons helper for which you'll need a TUSC account. Fill in the fields in Commons helper and it should transfer the file to Commons for you. Alternatively since they are your own files you can add them tothe Commons project as new uploads, with unified log in you should already have an account with Commons and the process is pretty much the same as it is, once uploaded to Commons you can mark the ones here as duplicates with {{subst:ncd}}. I remember how painful this was for me when I was on dial up,and because this is a wik, a collabrotive project, you don't have to do everything yourself. You can add the template {{Move to Commons}} to the files you want moved to Commons, it maytake a bit longer, but eventually they'll be transfered, hope this has helped, and don't hesitate to ask if you need more help.KTo288 (talk) 09:55, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Andy Kwong[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is Andy Kwong. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also Wikipedia:Notability and "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Andy Kwong. Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:09, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

Please be careful when adding IPA pronunciations to articles. These are very welcome and I don't want to discourage you from doing them, but on the militia article on 5 April you converted someone's unhelpful ad hoc respelling to IPA but got it wrong. /miːˈli.ti.a/ sounds something like the way most people would read "me lee tea ah". The first vowel is unstressed and reduced so the first syllable does not sound like the word "me", the second syllable has the /ɪ/ in words like "kit" and "fish" (your /i/ is just a shorter version of the /iː/ in "me"), there is no /t/ sound as in the word "tea" present at all, and the word ends in the same /ʃə/ sound that British English speakers have in the final syllables of "pressure" and "washer". A few days after your edit an anon saw the /t/ and tried to correct it, but didn't get it right either. For future reference, Wikipedia:IPA for English is great for giving pretty unambiguous examples for each sound. Ideally pronunciations should be referenced to a reliable source, and I've corrected militia with reference to the OED, but if you're careful to read the IPA for English page and think about the sounds you hear and try as far as possible to get the spelling out of your mind when transcribing then this usually suffices. Thanks. Old Man of Storr (talk) 20:38, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

Thanks you for your advice, and your taking the time not only to correct my mistake but also to show me how I can do things better in future. I apologise for making work for others through my sloppy editing, though I don't know how I can apologise to those who have now been misled and misinformed by my mistake. I'll not only be much more careful in future, but will endevour to be certain that I am correct before I undertake such an edit. Again thankyou for your time and effort.KTo288 (talk) 10:53, 22 April 2010 (UTC)

hello, I am the rightful owner and designer of the caps in question.

I am submitting the request as you specified. Please let me know if there's anything else you need Rexreed (talk) 22:31, 8 May 2010 (UTC)

41st Regiment[edit]

You noted in an edit to this disambiguation page that there is no such thing as the "United Kingdom Army", and changed it to "British Army". I, being an American and by no means an expert on UK military history, am not disputing the validity of your correction. I respectfully request to be educated on the difference between "Great Britain" and "United Kingdom" in this context. Pen of bushido (talk) 16:27, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

Its mostly tradition and usage, the British Army pre-dates the act of union qv that created the United Kingdom.KTo288 (talk) 10:14, 31 July 2010 (UTC)


You have a typo on your user page: the word "licencsed" should be "licensed". GroveGuy (talk) 02:30, 7 November 2010 (UTC)

Thanks looks like a slip of the finger on the keyboard, not the worst typo in my life, I've done worse, but mmbarrassing none the less.KTo288 (talk) 18:47, 7 November 2010 (UTC)

London Wikimedia Fundraiser[edit]

Good evening! This is a friendly message from Chase me ladies, I'm the Cavalry, inviting you to the London Wikimedia Fundraising party on 19th December 2010, in approximately one week. This party is being held at an artistic London venue with room for approximately 300 people, and is being funded by Ed Saperia, a non-Wikipedian who has a reputation for holding exclusive events all over London. This year, he wants to help Wikipedia, and is subsidising a charity event for us. We're keen to get as many Wikimedians coming as possible, and we already have approximately 200 guests, including members of the press, and some mystery guests! More details can be found at - expect an Eigenharp, a mulled wine hot tub, a free hog roast, a haybale amphitheatre and more. If you're interested in coming - and we'd love to have you - please go to the ten.wikipedia page and follow the link to the Facebook event. Signing up on Facebook will add you to the party guestlist. Entry fee is a heavily subsidised £5 and entry is restricted to over 18s. It promises to be a 10th birthday party to remember! If you have any questions, please email me at chasemewiki at

Hope we'll see you there, (and apologies for the talk page spam) - Chase me ladies, I'm the Cavalry (talk) 23:13, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

The Contribution Team cordially invites you to Imperial College London

Guided artillery[edit]

Wouldn't guided artillery be a better title since it's a more likely search term? Marcus Qwertyus 22:55, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

Recommending User:MiszaBot for Talk Archival[edit]

I suggest that you learn how to use the MiszaBot configurations and then use them as soon as possible. I wanted to tagged this talk page with {{archiveme}}, but I figured that you would archive them unprofessionally. --Gh87 (talk) 04:38, 14 August 2011 (UTC)

You guessed right. Me and bots don't get along, I always make a mess of things.-KTo288 (talk) 20:23, 26 August 2011 (UTC)
