WikiProject assessment tags for talk pages[edit]

Replacement filing cabinet.svg Thank you for your recent articles, including Henryk Derczyński, which I read with interest. When you create a new article, can you add the WikiProject assessment templates to the talk of that article? See the talk page of the article I mentioned for an example of what I mean. Usually it is very simple, you just add something like {{WikiProject Keyword}} to the article's talk, with keyword replaced by the associated WikiProject (ex. if it's a biography article, you would use WikiProject Biography; if it's a United States article, you would use WikiProject United States, and so on). You do not have to rate the article if you do not want to, others will do it eventually. Those templates are very useful, as they bring the articles to a WikiProject attention, and allow them to start tracking the articles through Wikipedia:Article alerts and other tools. This can help you too, as the WikiProject members will often defend your work from deletion and try to improve it further. Feel free to ask me any questions if you'd like more information.

Thanks! This is very useful to know. Leondz (talk) 12:10, 17 February 2014 (UTC)


Also, please remember to use diacritics; it is Derczyński not Derczynski. I have moved and copyedited the article accordingly. Once again, thank you for the article. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 11:32, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

While that might be true on Polish wikipedia, us Derczynskis operating in English often elide the acute accent. ;) Leondz (talk) 12:09, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

Flight RFL111[edit]

Hello, I wrote the section "Search and rescue", but I'm not native English. I would appreciate if you review the text written by me. --Turbojet (talk) 18:03, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

Sure. The letter from the EENA was interesting, and I was hoping someone would integrate it; thank you. Leondz (talk) 18:12, 27 February 2014 (UTC)
Thank you. :-) --Turbojet (talk) 18:58, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

The word 'country'[edit]

Hello Leondz I noted that you have touched on the meaning of this word at the talk page of MH370. Would you be interested to take a look at Talk:List of tram and light rail transit systems, Talk:List of metro systems and Talk:List of tallest buildings in the world too, as well as the recent edit history of World's busiest airports by passenger traffic? Thanks. (talk) 14:24, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi hello? (talk) 16:30, 18 March 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the invitation. I'm not sure exactly where you'd like me to contribute Leondz (talk) 10:25, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

Art and Artificial Intelligence[edit]

Leon, you probably already know about this, but when you have a chance, please check out the additions to the "Criticism and comment" section of Deep Learning and the article referenced therein -- I would rather that my friends take the first shots at all of this! And be sure to take a look at the first footnote of the article proper. Synchronist (talk) 00:01, 29 March 2015 (UTC)

Update: Dragan has already cracked the whip, and I am groaning under it! Synchronist (talk) 18:13, 29 March 2015 (UTC)

Pan Am Flight 121[edit]

Hi there, I just spotted that you created Pan Am Flight 121. I've previously expanded the Gene Roddenberry article (with the split to Early life and career of Gene Roddenberry where I included quite a bit of information on 121. I didn't go into as much detail as I could of as I felt it was going off topic (and your new article would be a much better place for it).

But the real reason why I came here was to point you towards - it's free to sign up, and one of the free ebooks you can borrow there is the David Alexander biography of Roddenberry that I used in my articles (it's where I got the source from). It'll have a fair amount of information on Flight 121 there. Miyagawa (talk) 23:04, 17 November 2015 (UTC)

WP:AIRCRASH / WP:AIRPORTS accidents / incidents criteria[edit]

Hi Leondz,

Thanks for your talk page message, and your edits to London City Airport. However I fail to see how this can be considered a misapplication of the project criteria, which are fairly unambiguous and state:

Accidents or incidents at the airport should only be included in airport articles if:
  • The accident caused human fatalities.
  • The accident involved hull loss or serious damage to the aircraft or airport.
  • The accident or incident invoked a change in procedures, regulations or process that had a wide effect on other airports or airlines or the aircraft industry

(see the relevant sections of WP:AIRCRASH / WP:AIRPORTS).

By those criteria, only the first incident is notable for inclusion (hull loss). The criteria were established some time ago to avoid airport and airline articles becoming cluttered with minor, non-notable incidents such as burst tyres and bent nose wheels, which while interesting to some don't really have any encyclopaedic notability. Hope it makes sense. Thanks! SempreVolando (talk) 08:33, 10 April 2016 (UTC)

Thanks, appreciate your thorough & patient response! I'll recheck the AAIB reports -- certainly not everything meets these. Leondz (talk) 14:10, 11 April 2016 (UTC)
