Everett. Washington IP[edit]

Have you seen the latest nonsense from our IP in Washington? I must say he's getting more imaginative, but I do wish we could pull his plug. Jets on a biplane! Facepalm3.svg Facepalm - BilCat (talk) 20:42, 6 August 2016 (UTC)

To be fair, at least for the I-153, and unusually for this editor, the claims may have at least some basis, as it was used as a testbed for crude ramjets, and this is mentioned in the article. And then there is the Belphegor!Nigel Ish (talk) 20:50, 6 August 2016 (UTC)
Yes, there is some truth, but as usual with whoever this user is, he misses the mark completely. Per DENY, I don't usually warn him. Seems like a young high schooler of Russian descent, to judge by his edit habits. Hopefully he'll grow up soon. - BilCat (talk) 22:24, 6 August 2016 (UTC)

HMS Dartmouth (1911)[edit]

You've greatly improved this article. I'd like to expand it further as part of the Wikipedia:WikiProject England/The West Country Challenge and take it to GA and give you credit as co-nominator since you've gone the bulk of the work already, if you're agreeable. I intend to rework the citations to Corbett and Newbolt as I have the reprints of the 2nd editions to hand and may be able to expand her post-war history if she served in the Mediterranean during this time.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 17:18, 13 August 2016 (UTC)

I'm not sure I deserve a co-credit as most of my edits were in 2014, but thanks for the offer. There may be more detail on WW1 usage in the first part of the war in the Naval Staff Memorandums. I'll give them a quick once over.Nigel Ish (talk) 17:34, 13 August 2016 (UTC)
Nonetheless, I don't really have to do anything to most of the article, so I think it would be well-deserved. I'll start work on it in the next day or two. I've only just downloaded the Memorandums so it's going to take me a while to see what they've got that's useful.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 21:28, 13 August 2016 (UTC)
Sorry, had a few things come up. But I've finished off HMS Bridgewater (L01) which you did a lot of work on a few months ago and have given you credit in the GAN. Will get to Dartmouth soon.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 19:23, 11 September 2016 (UTC)

Vickers Valiant reverted edit[edit]

Hello, thanks for reverting my mistake on Vickers Valiant and I will take a better look in the future, for me it just looked that the script did its job and combined the refs. obviously my mistake. However this does seem like a bug and I have asked the creator to take a look at it. Thanks again - Redalert2fan (talk) 15:16, 14 August 2016 (UTC)

why the Harvard referencing[edit]

When there is only 1 ref? --Marc Lacoste (talk) 19:15, 25 September 2016 (UTC)

It places the cite in the correct context -i.e. as a reference to a part of a larger article, and is consistent with what is already done in the article.Nigel Ish (talk) 19:24, 25 September 2016 (UTC)
But for the DC-8 article, it isn't consistent since there is more inline refs. I don't understand why it should be superior for the context. I understand the usefulness of harvard ref when a book is cited multiple times for multiple pages (for DC-8: Francillon) for for an article with no specific page, it obfuscate the reference. --Marc Lacoste (talk) 04:42, 26 September 2016 (UTC)

Beechcraft Model 73 Jet Mentor[edit]

Do you have access to any specs for the Model 73 Jet Mentor? It seems different enough from the T-34 to warrant a separate article. Thanks. - BilCat (talk) 20:54, 8 October 2016 (UTC)

Yes, there are a fairly full set of specs in the 56–57 Jane's All The World's Aircraft.Nigel Ish (talk) 21:07, 8 October 2016 (UTC)

Flight airspeed record[edit]

Thank you! Thank you!! Computer keyboard froze during the edit, typed random to see if it would unfreeze, then somehow it "saved". Could not get back in until just now and was worried that others would see the gibberish - so thank you for the quick recovery. Jmg38 (talk) 22:07, 23 October 2016 (UTC)

Supermarine Spitfire[edit]

Hi Nigel, the section of the article I edited reads 'Maximum speed: 370 mph (595 km/h) (322 kn, 595 km/h)' as you can see the km/h figure is listed twice. That's why I deleted the second instance. Does it need to be listed twice? --Boreas74 You'll catch more flies with honey 16:51, 19 November 2016 (UTC)

The specification template used in the article is NOT designed to be used with conversion templates, but for the values to be put into the alt fields by hand - I deleted the conversion template, so all should be OK with speed.Nigel Ish (talk) 17:01, 19 November 2016 (UTC)

WW[edit]

Thanks for making the correction to my edit. I do read everything I change, but missed the meaning of this line that lacks any punctuation. Hmains (talk) 17:43, 20 November 2016 (UTC)

DYK for HMS Negro (1916)[edit]

Updated DYK query.svg On 16 January 2017, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article HMS Negro (1916), which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that following a collision, HMS Negro sank after two depth charges from HMS Hoste tore open its hull? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/HMS Negro (1916). You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, HMS Negro (1916)), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.
