No. 254 Squadron RAF[edit]

There is undoubtedly a copyvio on this article, but it is not of my making. Rather than the somewhat draconian action threatened of deleting the article, I suggest that the amendment of 07:24, 27 September 2013 (https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=No._254_Squadron_RAF&diff=next&oldid=543086668) should be reversed, as this would appear to have been copied directly from the RAF website by an IP editor. I hope you concur that this action is acceptable. Regards, Lynbarn (talk) 08:36, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 29[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited HMS Express (1896), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Devonport (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Ar 198[edit]

Hi Nigel, I started a section here about how many were built. Can you take a look at http://www.histaviation.com/Arado_Ar_198.html and see if 2 or 3 should be stated. Thanks Samf4u (talk) 15:04, 5 April 2015 (UTC)

Buncrana census results[edit]

Hey, you reverted changes I made to the census table in the Buncrana article; which you were correct to do as I had accidentally hit the save changes button before completing the table so it was a mix of 2006 and 2011 figures but I have finished it now so I am going ahead and update it.

Consolidated B-24 Liberator[edit]

Keep an eye on this article, I have a suspicion that the recent, massive edits are all copy-viols. I had done some checks on exact wording and found where the sources came from, all unattributed. Quite a few typos and spelling variations were also involved. FWiW Bzuk (talk) 20:45, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

What sources do you think the mystery editor is using? If the editor is copying from somewhere then they are doing a very poor job considering the number of typos and poor English that they are adding.Nigel Ish (talk) 18:02, 5 May 2015 (UTC)

Website "helis.com" not a reliable source?[edit]

Hi, I just noticed your reversion to my use of "helis.com" as a valid source for the number of Argentine SA330L; your reason was " helis.com is user edited and therefore not a reliable source ". I also noticed that this same source has been used in other articles without being challenged. Is there consensus documented somewhere that info from "helis.com" should not be used in wikiarticles? Thanks & regards, DPdH (talk) 05:36, 7 May 2015 (UTC)

See [1]. The website explicitly says that anyone can add or edit a database item. That definatly qualifies it as a non- reliable source.Nigel Ish (talk) 05:46, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
Crystal clear, thanks.DPdH (talk) 06:17, 7 May 2015 (UTC)

B-25 article edits[edit]

I am perhaps the most diligent researcher of the B-25 Program and have contributed to several top books on the subject, online articles, museums and archives. my research findings are found in B-25 circles worldwide. I can significantly improve the article if it were not locked.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 2600:1002:b025:bc0f:2dfc:d223:3617:858e (talk)

re: B-25 article Your major users are distorted. these correct major users were: AAF USMC RAF The latter two about equal. The USN tested one or a few G series and conducted carrier trails with a sole H series ( see the article). The RCAF used the type in NA as a trainer but was no more a user that other Commonwealth Nations. not in top three as per guidelines. NEI was significant to the program as was China. The AAFAC WAS A USER. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2600:1002:b025:bc0f:2dfc:d223:3617:858e (talk)

Discuss this on the article talk page please. Changes need to be verifiable to reliable sources, not original research, or claims about personal expertise. They also need to be coherently written, which many of the recent IP changes to the article were not.Nigel Ish (talk) 05:25, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

How does one access article talk page? are you saying offical archival material are not acceptable references? Not asking that info be accepted on basis of personal expertise. What I was trying to get across is that the B-25 article cites outdated, incorrect references. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2600:1002:B013:3817:E602:877:1B9D:3F4B (talkcontribs) 14 May 2015 18:24

2600 all you need to do is click on the tab "talk" on the North American B-25 Mitchell page or follow this link Talk:North American B-25 Mitchell. MilborneOne (talk) 19:34, 14 May 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the lost six, I was aware of these as they are not hard to find, makes you wonder if we have a WP:COMPETENCE issue with the IP. MilborneOne (talk) 18:30, 17 May 2015 (UTC)
It's possible that the source the IP is using lists these six as Gs. However, as they seem to have problems with using talk pages and citing sources, sorting out the articles may be a problem.Nigel Ish (talk) 18:37, 17 May 2015 (UTC)

P-51[edit]

It has been notice that the standard first sentence on WWII VINTAGE article includes the type of propulsion and country of origins. it was also been noted the conformace to the standard is not vandalism. it is futher noted that you are incapable or unwilling to use Wiki protocols regarding citation tags and reverts. therefore it is noted that there is other motivation beyond good article cohesion motivating your behave. it is also hoped that writting this in the passive voice will improve your comprehension and provide a degree of non-atributal qualities to the comments. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2600:1002:B115:C19C:39AD:3E86:E31C:6E07 (talk) 12:47, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

Your addition to the P-51 lede paragraph was misleading - the P-51 was by no leap of imagination an "International Aircraft" and the it did not "emerge" as a single seat fighter in 1943, it already was one, and represented no improvement, and so was reverted. As long as you continue to assume bad faith about other peoples' motives and refuse to acknowledge that your edits require large scale revisions to turn them into something usable in an encyclopedia, then your edits are likely to continue to be reverted.Nigel Ish (talk) 13:20, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

French invasion of Russia[edit]

Way back in 2008 this edit which added a short citation to the article French invasion of Russia was it a different edition to the book already listed as a long citation or was it a different volume? Please could you add the relevant long citation to the references section? I ask because I want to clean up the references and link short citations to long ones using the {{harv}} templates and at the moment there are a lot of similar problems in the article. -- PBS (talk) 20:04, 24 May 2015 (UTC)

It's the paperback edition of what I assume is the same book - I've added a full citation.Nigel Ish (talk) 20:46, 24 May 2015 (UTC)

HMS Wild Swan (D62) copyvio[edit]

Thankyou for your comments on my work in progress on this article. I shall revert your deletion of my amends - I intend to conform to copyright requirements, but copy/pasting is a simple way of minimising effort while using an online item as a source for relevant info. As I worked through, note that I made no attempt to disguise the source of the information that I used; there are other sources that I will also cite - online and print. When I interrupt work, I usually try to leave the article in a clean state for readers - in this case, mea culpa. By the way, I suspect that some of the text you restored was also a direct copy/paste, but without citations to make proving it easy - as was pointed out in the banner at the top of page. I hope that you will permit me to finish improving this article and citing sources, then any comments/criticisms would be much appreciated. Regards. Folks at 137 (talk) 13:25, 28 May 2015 (UTC)

I note that you reinserted blatant copyvio from the nav-hist site - including direct copying of the first paragraph of the page "ordered in April 1918 with 38 others...", and that you continue to keep copied text on your talk page - as you continue to act in this way I have reported the issue at the Copyright Problems page.Nigel Ish (talk) 17:17, 28 May 2015 (UTC)

AWP-1[edit]

The lost distinction is the before America entered the war and over a year before the XB-29 first flew, the deployment plan was ready. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2600:1002:B003:862A:A8AC:CFFF:54D2:D0BB (talk) 10:29, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

And your point is...? September 1941 is before the US entered the war (and I wasn't the one who removed the explicit mention of pre-war plans anyway).Nigel Ish (talk) 12:29, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

are you writting for the public or for those that already know ? losing the distiction means that it is no longer evident. I was please that you were resourceful enough to go to Craven & Cate...were I knew the plan was discussed. You did exactly what I set you up to do. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2600:1002:B115:C19C:39AD:3E86:E31C:6E07 (talk) 13:46, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

As I have already said above, I did not remove explicit mention of the plans being pre-entry of the US to WW2. You comment "You did exactly what I set you up to do" indicates that you are not here to discuss improvements to the encyclopedia but to engage in point scoring - please do not post to my talk page again.Nigel Ish (talk) 13:52, 30 May 2015 (UTC)
