Chuck Norris[edit]

No prob on the cross-rvs. May be worth sprotecting the article... 4q is funny, but people are going to be editing that stuff into WP until its popularity dies down. VT hawkeyetalk to me 22:06, 29 December 2005 (UTC)

Speedy deletion[edit]

If you tag an article (for example, Crash of aircraft N3381W on August 27, 1967) for speedy deletion, it needs to meet one of the criteria for speedy deletion. If it doesn't (and the reason you posted, "non-notable aircraft accident," doesn't appear anywhere on WP:CSD), it can't be speedied, it needs to go through the regular articles for deletion process. Hope this helps. —Cleared as filed. 12:05, 4 February 2006 (UTC)

I listed it as a speedy deletion on the criteria of "Unremarkable people or groups" based on the redirect of "Peter Barris" that points to the main article where his name is also bolded, apparently to imply that he was the center of the article and somehow notable. It appears the article was meant to focus on him, otherwise the redirect and bolding doesn't make any sense. I probably should have clarified that in the speedy tag and will do so now.

The article, as described in its title, refers mostly to the accident itself and not to Peter Barris. In any case, the article does make an assertion of notability about Peter Barris, and so it still wouldn't meet the speedy deletion critieria for biographies anyway. You'll still have to nominate it for AfD. —Cleared as filed. 12:26, 4 February 2006 (UTC)
Hmm, not trying to be difficult, but what assertion does the article make of his notability? I don't see anything about him that stands out, other than he was responsible for a pilot-error accident. Mexcellent 12:33, 4 February 2006 (UTC)
Oh wait, did you mean "... does NOT make an assertion..."? Typo? Mexcellent 12:37, 4 February 2006 (UTC)
It asserts that he is notable because he crashed his plane into the radio tower of a well-known New York City radio station on the day before that radio station was going to start transmitting. If you disagree about that claim to notability, then nominate the article for AfD. But no admin is going to delete it as a speedy because speedy deletion of non-notable biographies is for obvious vanity articles. This is sourced, accurate, and obviously isn't vanity. —Cleared as filed. 12:40, 4 February 2006 (UTC)
Well, the article doesn't even mention the bit about "on the day before that radio station was going to start transmitting", which is really the notable part of the whole article and an odd thing to have left out, in my opinion. I see it's mentioned in the radio station's article, but the crash article taken by itself leaves the reader wondering what is special about this particular instance of VFR into IMC. I'll add that bit of notability and remove the deletion tags. Mexcellent 12:48, 4 February 2006 (UTC)

Flight Planning[edit]

I'm thinking about splitting out 'Flight Planning' as a separate article, in order to cover the complications involved in calculating a 'Flight Plan' (the current article). Comments?

Background: Since 1991 I've been working as a programmer for a major flight planning system, so I've got some idea of what goes on.

My RfA[edit]

You indicated on my RfA that I shouldn't be an admin because adminship isn't a reward for a job well done. I've expanded my answer to question 1 to explain why I need the admin tools to better do the jobs I'm doing right now. Could you reconsider your vote? --Carnildo 17:06, 3 September 2006 (UTC)


Hello. Just reiterating that I have no objection to leaving the matter entirely at your discretion. Regards, El_C 03:37, 15 October 2006 (UTC)

Hello again and thanks for your reply. My response is here. Best, El_C 05:33, 15 October 2006 (UTC)

As I understand it, blanking a page for of any reason is called vandalism. If you have a problem with the article then comment on it in the talk page or remove the negative information yourself. Tev 16:30, 19 November 2006 (UTC)


Hi, from seeing your comments at IfD, I noticed you sign without any link back to your userspace. Could I encourage you to link to your userpage or talk page to accomodate other editors? There are a few reasons why a link is helpful, one is to get to a user's talk page to leave a message, another is that some users sign a slightly different name than their actual username, which means hovering over their name is the quickest way to get their actual username. Anyways, if it was a one-time thing don't worry about it. If you don't entertain my request I'm not going to worry about it, either. Just a request ;) BigNate37(T) 18:50, 3 December 2006 (UTC)

  • Easy enough. Mexcellent 18:12, 5 December 2006 (UTC)
