File permission problem with File:Kuwait 25th Commando Brigade.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Kuwait 25th Commando Brigade.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file has agreed to release it under the given license.

If you are the copyright holder for this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

Welcome![edit]

Hello, OJOM, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Unfortunately, one or more of the pages you created, such as Mubarack Al-Abdullah Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, may not conform to some of Wikipedia's guidelines, and may not be retained.

There's a page about creating articles you may want to read called Your first article. If you are stuck, and looking for help, please come to the Tea House, where experienced Wikipedians can answer any queries you have! Or, you can just type {{help me}} on this page, followed by your question, and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Here are a few other good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date. If you have any questions, check out Wikipedia:Questions or ask me on my talk page. Again, welcome! 220 of Borg 13:48, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

Edit summaries[edit]

Hi there. When editing an article on Wikipedia there is a small field labeled "Edit summary" under the main edit-box. It looks like this:

Edit summary (Briefly describe your changes)

 

The text written here will appear on the Recent changes page, in the page revision history, on the diff page, and in the watchlists of users who are watching that article. See m:Help:Edit summary for full information on this feature.

Filling in the edit summary field greatly helps your fellow contributors in understanding what you changed, so please always fill in the edit summary field. If you are adding a section, please do not just keep the previous section's header in the Edit summary field – please fill in your new section's name instead. Thank you. 220 of Borg 13:49, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

Referencing[edit]

When you are reading an article and see a references section near the bottom populated by a series of numbered citations, you might think that if you edit the page, you will see those citations typed in that section and be able to edit them. However, normally what you will see is code similar to this:

     ==References==

   {{Reflist}} or <references/>

The text of citations is actually in the body of the article, directly next to statements or paragraphs the citations support, using <ref>(citation)</ref> tags, which display as footnotes (e.g.[1][2]) when you are reading an article. The template code shown above in the references section collates and displays all of the citations within the article in a numbered list in which the numbers correspond to the footnote numbers in the text. By clicking on the ^ symbol next to a citation display, you can easily find exactly where in the body of the article the citation text appears in order to edit it. For more, please see Wikipedia:Referencing for beginners. 220 of Borg 14:01, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Mubarack Al-Abdullah Al-Jaber Al-Sabah[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Mubarack Al-Abdullah Al-Jaber Al-Sabah requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. 220 of Borg 14:15, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

Better source request for some of your uploads[edit]

Thanks for your uploads to Wikipedia. There is an issue with some of them, specifically:

You provided a source, but it is difficult for other users to examine the copyright status of the images because the source is incomplete. Please consider clarifying the exact source so that the copyright status may be checked more easily. It is best to specify the exact Web page where you found the images, rather than only giving the source domain or the URL of the image files themselves. Please update the image descriptions with URLs that will be more helpful to other users in determining the copyright status.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source in a complete manner. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page or me at my talk page. Thank you. Message delivered by Theo's Little Bot (opt-out) 03:10, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

Ongoing problem with references[edit]

You seem to have a long-term problem providing valid references. You cannot simply point to the first page of a huge website, be it the Kuwait website or one of their embassies, and expect people to be able to find and verify your citation. It simply can't be done. You need to either provide the exact page within that website or some other direct reference. 69.181.253.230 (talk) 20:44, 23 December 2013 (UTC)

Non-going problem with references[edit]

Websites are in arabic and if not properly translated; the integrity of data can be misinterpreted. OJOM (talk) 22:00, 23 December 2013 (UTC)

http://www.mod.gov.kw/MOD/Arabic_P/index.jsp says nothing about Mubarack Abdullah Al-Jaber Al-Sabah. Nothing. Find a source that does include information about him. 69.181.253.230 (talk) 22:33, 23 December 2013 (UTC)

Encyclopedic Facts about Mubarak is already included on the Arabic Wikipedia that was recently deleted from the English version. Should the Arabic wikipedia hold the same correct and referenced information; then, the english version should confirm data applicable. OJOM (talk) 23:05, 23 December 2013 (UTC)

You are using false equivalency standards. Just because it is on the Arabic Wikipedia does not mean it should automatically be part of the English Wikipedia, especially if the sources do not comply with the English Wikipedia policies. 69.181.253.230 (talk) 23:19, 23 December 2013 (UTC)

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:Kuwait 25th Commando Brigade Emblem.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Kuwait 25th Commando Brigade Emblem.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. Cindy(talk) 05:32, 24 December 2013 (UTC)

Image uploads – warning[edit]

You have received numerous talk page notices regarding your image uploads, nearly all of which have been lacking adequate information about their sourcing and licensing. Please consider the points below:

  • From which book(s) or publication(s) have your uploads been copied? What is the copyright status of this/these book(s) or publication(s)?
  • You must give as much detailed source, date and licensing information as possible. A brief citation, such as "Kuwaiti Publications", does not provide sufficient source information.
  • Scanning and cropping an existing, copyrighted photograph, and then uploading it to Wikipedia, does not transfer the ownership of the copyright to you.
  • Do not upload a particular image more than once. Unused duplicates are eligible for speedy deletion.

I have nominated your latest round of uploads at Wikipedia:Possibly unfree files or tagged them for speedy deletion as being redundant copies.

Please do not upload any more scanned photographs of this type unless you are certain that the source is freely licensed or in the public domain.

Mubarak Abdullah Al-Jaber Al-Sabah[edit]

You seem to be treating the Mubarak Abdullah Al-Jaber Al-Sabah article as a memorial page for him. Please explain why the article should include links to tombs of unknown soldiers and images of these tombs and of bravery medals, especially as he was not awarded these medals himself. Please also look at Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, Frederik, Crown Prince of Denmark, Hussein of Jordan, Farouk of Egypt, Nicholas II of Russia, Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands and Abdullah of Saudi Arabia. They all use "he" and they all generally use their honorific or name, but not both, after listing full titles and honours once at the top of the article. Please explain why this article should follow a different style to all the other articles. Please also do not put so many links to an article, in general there should only be one link to another topic in an article. Military of Kuwait had more than sixty links to Kuwaiti Armed Forces, which is a redirect back to Military of Kuwait anyway. Also, "Martyred" is a non-nutral term and is unsuitable for an encyclopaedia. I can also only repeat the comments of others above, posting a link to the home page of the Kuwaiti MOD as a reference is useless, even to someone speaking arabic. If there is a biography of Mubarak Abdullah Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, somewhere in that website, you should use the URL for that page as the source, not the Home page. The same goes for the other articles you have been editing - they all have the MOD website home page as sole reference, which is as I have said useless; it is like using http://aviation-safety.net/database/ as a reference for the Malaysia Airlines 370 article, instead of using http://aviation-safety.net/database/record.php?id=20140308-0 YSSYguy (talk) 09:43, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

Mubarak was awarded the Neck Order of the Legion of Merit in a " Commanders Degree" which is the only neck order equivalent to the Medal of Honor issued to foreigners only. Adding on, the " See Also" category on all Wikipedia articles refer to subjects not directly related to the article itself but of similar related content.

other topic[edit]

the term, martyred, is non-neutral but then so is the non neutrality of understanding bravery and courage that lead in general to merited acts.

other related topic[edit]

Linking or referencing a military officer with his armed force that belongs to the ministry is a logical task to perform. Linking the actions of an officer and environment to the concerned military institution grounds readers from not getting confused with other misleading sources. It would not be logical to assume that links and articles are more authentic than quality of institutions. There are over hundreds with the name of Mubarak Al-Abdullah. This author does however appreciate your concerns and remarks and would like to thank you for your assistance. (OJOM (talk) 14:57, 13 March 2014 (UTC)).
Thank you for responding. Your answers to the questions "Why" seem to be "because that's the way I want the article to look" and you seem to have missed the point completely. The See Also section is for links to "Wikipedia articles refer[ring] to subjects not directly related to the article itself but of similar related content" as you say. I put in links to articles about subjects related to the House of Sabah and the politics of Kuwait and you removed all of them. Having a link to Tomb of the Unknown Soldier means nothing in the context of Mubarak, Kuwaiti history or its politics or its foreign relations. It's the same as putting a link to the Smithsonian Institution in the See Also section because he visited Washington. With regard to the other articles about royal persons, the point is not that they should all be changed to match the Sheikh Mubarak Al-Abdullah article; it is that they are examples of following Wikipedia policy and the Sheikh Mubarak Al-Abdullah article does not conform to that policy - put another way, the article cannot have a layout that is not in accordance with policy just because you want it to. The fact that "There are over hundreds with the name of Mubarak Al-Abdullah", while true, doesn't matter, because the article is only about one of them, there is no need to use a longer term just to identify a particular Mubarak Al-Abdullah, we are already at the article about that particular Mubarak Al-Abdullah. There are millions of people called "William", but the article about Prince William is only about him.
You are quite right about "bravery" and "courage" - they are also non-neutral, and being killed in action does not automatically mean that a soldier was brave or courageous. If a soldier is awarded a medal for bravery, then a WP article can say that he was "awarded a medal for bravery as a result of his actions" - provided of course that it is properly referenced. The word "martyred" in unsuitable because it is not neutral, not becuase it's unpleasant - "killed" isn't pleasant either. "Martyr" has a religious connotation in English, someone who is murdered for refusing to renounce his faith is martyred. Someone who is killed during a border clash with soldier from another country is not martyred, he died defending his country - a noble thing in its own right - not his faith. To say "It is logical to link each act of Defense performed on is behalf to the Ministry of Defense and link each action on behalf of a Kuwaiti Officer to the Military of Kuwait and to the Ministry of Defense" is not relevant, an article should generally have only one link to another article in it, please read Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Linking. Maybe you have confused "linking" with "referencing", when I say "linking" I mean the red and blue links in the text. There is no need to link "Six Day War" every time it appears in an article, in fact policy is against this. As I said before "Kuwati Armed Forces" is a redirect to "Military of Kuwait", so clicking the "Kuwati Armed Forces" link takes a person to the "Military of Kuwait" article. Therefore linking "Kuwati Armed Forces" in the "Military of Kuwait" article is pointless, because it's just a circle; please read Wikipedia:Redirect.

Note[edit]

OJOM, I'm going all over the place rectifying things here and there. I've noted a few things that you do consistently, and unfortunately they are not correct. First of all, this "See also" business: those lists are way too long, and the entries way too far removed from the subject. Please trim them considerably. Second, you are fond of piping dates inside wikilinks (for various wars and such). There also, please refrain--that's not how we do things. Finally, and this is the bigger thing, there is too much non-neutral content. I just removed a huge chunk from Kuwaiti Army since the content you added sang the praises of that army, and that's not something we can do. Please see WP:NPOV. Thank you. Drmies (talk) 17:42, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

The only praised reference is Encyclopedic Fact. At least, get them right.(OJOM (talk) 19:05, 23 April 2014 (UTC)).

  • That begs the question of how much historical fact is in the documents you cite, all supplied by the Kuwaiti government. I had to look elsewhere to learn that the Battle of Hamdh ended in a Kuwaiti defeat. Drmies (talk) 19:40, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

No one ever mentioned anything about a defeat or a win regarding the Battle of Hamdh. Your efforts to look and seek are admirable; however, let us not assume that individual books supersede in all ways known history. This author praises your efforts Sir. Thank you. (OJOM (talk) 20:02, 23 April 2014 (UTC)).

  • OJOM, I appreciate your quick and courteous response, but in the interest of economy, let me be clear: in no way will we accept "government sources" over published accounts in reliable sources. One wonders what glory tales the Saudis will be telling about this battle and given that a. it seems that they won and b. there's more of them then there are of you we need our editorial policies to be followed (see WP:RS, for instance), because if this becomes a battle between camps, you are not likely to win. And I'm sure you do not want the other side to write this article, do you? Drmies (talk) 22:47, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

In the context of " Battle between camps"; when you are finished reviewing all the tribes that constitute the chieftain of the Tribes of Arabia; you may then "camp" and "side" argument in the right article.(OJOM (talk) 15:09, 24 April 2014 (UTC)).

  • You totally misunderstand "camp". It doesn't refer to a locale with a camp fire and tents; it refers to sides in an argument. It is obvious that your sources are pro-Kuwaiti (you haven't cited a single book or journal article--nothing but Kuwaiti government websites), and the language reflects that: you refer to the Ikhwan who "killed the innocent bedwins and looted their farms" (Battle of Al-Regeai, an article I just tagged as not-neutral), and your persistent insistence on including all honorifics of those from the House of Sabah is another indication that you are working on glorifying the past from a specific point of view, no matter what the present situation is between the countries. Now, you may sing the praises of Saudi-Kuwaiti unity right now, but the time period of those articles you wrote was one of warfare, and in your writing you have clearly picked a side. Drmies (talk) 18:39, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

Encyclopedic facts are inputted. The government of a country is held responsible for the history of its existence and not books and journals.

  • Sir (I suppose--don't know how you know I have a penis), you said "The government of a country is held responsible for the history of its existence and not books and journals." The moment when he hold a government responsible for the writing of its history will be the moment we can shut this encyclopedia down and replace all articles with a link to the "official" website. In the meantime, we are not going to defer the writing of those articles to those who (claim to) represent those governments, or who edit as if they do. You may feel free to reinstate whatever you like, but if you do so based on unreliable sources, if you remove valid sources, if you reinstate non-neutral language, if you edit against other guidelines and policies (not the least of which the WP:MOS, I will seek other means to redress the situation. Thank you. Drmies (talk) 14:18, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Encyclopedic Facts cares not for government representations nor seek deferements to respond to. This author respectfully agrees that the current policy and situation which you should seek to redress and straighten is your use of inappropriate language of "Sir (I suppose--don't know how you know I have a ""penis"")" as it is very Unlady and ungentleman like and does not fit the quality of an Encyclopedia. Thank you.(OJOM (talk) 21:37, 27 April 2014 (UTC)).

Referencing[edit]

I repeat, please provide URLs for the individual pages within the Kuwaiti government websites you are using as sources, not the URLs for the Home pages. As I have noted before, the way you source is like using http://www.defense.gov/ as a reference instead of a specific page that has information about Norman Schwarzkopf or Mike Mullen, for example; it's basically useless, even for someone who reads Arabic.

referencing (again)[edit]

Once again, posting a link to the home page of the Kuwaiti MoD as a reference is useless, even to someone speaking Arabic. If there is a SPECIFIC page which is part of the MoD website that contains a SPECIFIC piece of information, then that is the URL you use as the source. DO NOT keep using the USELESS home page URL. What you do is the same as presenting www.thetimes.co.uk as a source when the actual source is a specific news story on that website - when someone else wants to read the actual source they can't find it.

Again, if you use one web page multiple times, you only need to list the URL once. The correct format is to write <ref name=(Name)>[(source URL)]</ref> and then <ref name="Name"/> by itself for every other instance of using the same source. The actual name can be anything you like.

other topics[edit]

Data subject to review was inputted first rightly before being subject to category classfications of unfit status. Unnecessary info is a little overexagerating.

Incorrect statement. Simply following the format of address for government figures. Therefore, that is purpose of these wps "distorting" the format of the articles. Accordingly, your concerns are being duly noted far from " doing what you want". (OJOM (talk) 13:21, 15 February 2015 (UTC)).

The issue is that you are adding a lot of unnecessary material to articles without regards to formatting, due weight, or proper referencing. Your edits have been consistently reverted by many editors, including @Cuprum17:, @Drmies:, @Egeymi:, @YSSYguy:, myself, and many others. Please, listen to the advice you have been given, and try to follow Wikipedia's guidelines on proper addition of content.

Respectful individuals. Depending on Encyclopedic histories, this author is more knowledgeable than the cumulative knowledge of all these repsectful authors put together. This author is keen and interested to conserve the integrity of data on such an Esteemed Institution such as Wikipedia than to adhere to the limited procedures of referencing that does not always reflect fact and true history.

So, if you are "keen and interested to conserve the intergrity [sic] of the information on such an Esteemed Institution such as Wikipidia [sic] than to adhere to the limited procedures of referencing that does not always reflect fact and true history", is it your position that Wikipedia's requirements for proper referencing do not apply to your work?

other topic[edit]

Leaving aside the issue of whether the French soldiers' name should be listed or not listed, and also leaving aside the use of the word "martyr" - which you have been told before you should not use and why - you shovelled a heap of information into the article without bothering to reference it. Now, you list the sources here on your talk page, but what good is that? Why did you not do what you are supposed to do with everything you add to an article, which is to ADD YOUR SOURCES? I can only assume it's one of the following reasons:
  • it's too hard, or you don't know how to do it
  • because you think it's beneath you
  • because you can't be bothered
  • because you don't think it matters
  • because there are no sources that back up what you add
- YSSYguy (talk) 23:24, 16 February 2015 (UTC)

Response[edit]

Since an administrator already determined that this author is not OJOM11, who was running shoveling data around articles edited by OJOM purposely undermining the intergrity of this author; then how come by minimum courtesy due; none of these authors bothered to ask first this author if OJOM11 was the same author. This author can only assume it's one of the following reasons :

  • didn't think about the integrity of this author first and doing the simple minimum, of asking respectfully.
  • because you think this author is beneath you
  • because you can't be bothered to ask respectfully
  • because you don't think it matters
  • because you assume too much about knowledgable authors

With all due respect.(OJOM (talk) 23:40, 16 February 2015 (UTC)).

Well, unlike you, I will not dodge your question: I didn't know anything about OJOM11 until yesterday, but what he or she did was wrong and an Admin quite rightly took firm action. However OJOM11 didn't add unreferenced information to any article - he or she removed information; and OJOM11 did not edit 1983 Beirut barracks bombing at all and therefore did not shovel any unreferenced information into that article - you did. So my question still stands unanswered: why don't you reference properly? With all due respect YSSYguy (talk) 02:07, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

Don't ask an author about referencing when you keep deleting correct Encyclopedic facts about victims and the injured. Our job as authors is to support each other first in the interest of this Encyclopedia and not remain unaware of identical users such as OJOM11 being created. Your unjustified behavior suggest " you don't think it matters".(OJOM (talk) 22:54, 17 February 2015 (UTC)).

So, is your answer to my earlier question that the information does not need referencing because they died violently? YSSYguy (talk) 05:35, 18 February 2015 (UTC)
I also apologise for failing in my job as an author and remaining unaware of imaginary identical users such as OJOM11 being created, and for any offence caused to you for that failure. YSSYguy (talk) 05:42, 18 February 2015 (UTC)

General Std Operating Procedure and Policy implementing in concern of referencing should not favor outcomes. However, number of casualties in wars, conflits and or incident would and should be referenced to differentiate mainly between those KIA, MIA, WIA, POW's and innocent civilians status count. In the event of known casualty identification, it is applicable not to require referencing as to per known casualty status. (OJOM (talk) 21:37, 18 February 2015 (UTC)).

Wikilinking other topics[edit]

Please stop linking part of the names of persons. In one case you linked part of the name of a female person and the link was to an article about a man. A link such as that is pointless, confusing and does nothing to help a reader find out more about the person. YSSYguy (talk) 12:59, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

Which female person may you be referring to exaclty around this Encyclopedia so that we may not confuse your understanding and her gender status again? Kindly specify tasks required so that this author may reply accordingly to your specific ongoing gender confusions. Writing a general vague statement "Wikilinking" as suggested above is pointless "In one case" ( which case ? ), confusing "name of a female person" (which female?) and does nothing to help this author find out more about your specific edits and concerns around this Encyclopedia. (OJOM (talk) 07:34, 3 March 2015 (UTC)).

Don't fixate on one particular case, just stop linking to articles about rulers of Kuwait when the persons mentioned are or were not rulers of Kuwait. Ali Salem Al-Mubarak Al Sabah was not the same person as Mubarak Al Sabah, so don't link Mubarak Al Sabah. Mubarak Abdullah Al-Jaber Al-Sabah's mother Munira Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah was not Sheik Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, so don't link Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah. Abdullah Jaber Al Abdullah II Al-Sabah was not the same person as Abdullah II Al-Sabah, so don't link Abdullah II Al-Sabah. Simple YSSYguy (talk) 12:11, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
Don't argue about it, just don't do it. I can't be any clearer than that. YSSYguy (talk) 18:38, 3 March 2015 (UTC)

"just don't do it" is an unprofessional tone. Don't deliver unjustifiable lectures.(OJOM (talk) 06:37, 4 March 2015 (UTC)).

The "lecture", as you put it, is completely justified. The purpose of a wikilink is to deliver a reader to another article with more information about the wikilinked term. Let's say there is a sentence "the Kuwait Air Force is an arm of the Military of Kuwait"; a wikilink for Military of Kuwait allows a reader to go to that article and learn more about the Kuwaiti military. A wikilink for Military of Kuwait is of no assistance to the reader, because there is nothing about the Kuwaiti military forces in that article. What you have been doing is exactly the same - you have been in the habit of linking part of the names of people, to articles about different people, rulers of Kuwait; and those articles do not even mention people such as Munira Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah. In conclusion, the links are unhelpful, and such linking is against Wikipedia policy, so don't do it. YSSYguy (talk) 10:33, 4 March 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for taking the time to clarify policy.(OJOM (talk) 10:44, 4 March 2015 (UTC)).

Stop removing valid Failed Verification and Citation Needed tags in violation of Wikipedia policy. Stop adding unreferenced material in violation of Wikipedia policy.

Don't deliver lectures which factual verifiable experience knows little of like you previously did on other topics. This author is adding Encyclopedic facts as usual. (OJOM (talk) 12:00, 23 March 2015 (UTC)).
There is no lecture, just an instruction to adhere to policies. You say you write facts, but without reliable sources they are just wisps of smoke. In one edit I added a reliable source, which you then removed. Experience has nothing to do with it, except that your lack of such in terms of Wikipedia is leading you to make bad edits. YSSYguy (talk) 12:06, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

You are deleting facts this author is stating and calling it "instruction to adhere to policies". As far as " Experience has nothing to do with it"; agreed; however, this author is referring to the experience of verifiable sources. This author would have to respectfully decline about your suggested "lack of such".(OJOM (talk) 12:19, 23 March 2015 (UTC)).

It was impossible to know what you were referring to before, you wrote English words, but not a coherent sentence. No matter, the only thing that does matter is your mistaken belief that you do not have to adhere to Wikipedia policies. YSSYguy (talk) 12:51, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

Knowledgeable authors don't quibble about writings. The only thing that does matter is your unjustifiable mass editing of articles that are Encyclopedic facts. Don't twist wills around policies and referencing miracling "wikipdia policy". This author's contributions are all Encyclopedic facts so don't twist wills with "mistaken belief that you do have to adhere to Wikipidia policies". Wikipdia is for the factual volunteers and certainly not the uneducated should a respectful educated gentleman such as yourself plan on insisting on unjustifiable acts and claims.

Warrant Officer[edit]

Please see NATO Ranks under either Army or Navy Officer Ranks (the Army Officer Ranks section has a more detailed description) and you will see a separate category (WO) for US Warrant Officer ranks, as the US is the only nation to use WO's as a unique category of officers, subordinate to Officers (OF) but superior in rank to Enlisted Members/Other Ranks (OR). While Adjudant-Chef and Adjutant may translate to Chief Warrant Officer and Warrant Officer, respectively, they would be equivalent to British Commonwealth WOs (q.v.) or US E-9 and E-8 ranks, not W-x ranks. Also, the French "Major" (regardless of its English translation or linguistic equivalence) would in no way be equivalent to a CWO-5, again because US WOs/CWOs are officers vice Other Ranks (i.e., Enlisted Members). It would appear that the closest US equivalent rank to the French "Major" would be the US Army rank of "Command Sergeant Major" (CSM) or the USMC rank of "Sergeant Major" (SgtMaj) as both of these ranks are reserved for the Senior Enlisted Advisor to the Commanding Officer of a Battalion/Squadron ("Squadron" is used in USA Cavalry or USMC Aviation as battalion-equivalent units) or higher level commands. As such the CSM or SgtMaj is the most senior NCO in the organization, reporting directly to a Lieutenant Colonel or above, with the requisite authority, responsibility, prestige, respect, and status incumbant upon a soldier or Marine who has served with great distinction for over twenty years of honorable service. It would appear that the French Major would quite naturally fall within this rank equivalence. By the way of comparison, a CWO-5 would have, in addition to the above qualifiations, over twenty years of service as on officer leading troops, managing technical programs, training others, mentoring company-grade officers and other WOs, and advising senior officers with the combination of the technical skills of a master technician and the leadership skills of a field-grade officer. Truly special individuals and probably the rarest rank in the USA and USMC other than General and Lieutenant General.CobraDragoon (talk) 21:50, 11 June 2015 (UTC)

Warrant Officer[edit]

Thank you for your clarifications which are highly appreciated. However, there is a point to be clarified. Indeed, the French Rank of Major is a Sub-Officer and is equivalent to the term warrant officer in the British Commonwealth and the United States. Historically, armed forces using the term sub-officer have used it to refer to more senior non-commissioned ranks, typically from sergeant upwards, but often the term now covers all non-commissioned ranks. Similarly to the Canadian Senior ranks (Rangs supérieurs), the French language for Chief Warrant Officer form is Adjudant-Chef (adjuc) (english for Chief Adjudant/ Chief Warrant Officer) and Adjudant (adj) for Warrant Officer. However, the main point is that the rank of French Major is still the highest enlisted/warrant officer rank and holds the same enlisted rank designation across the board of the ranks in the French Navy, ranks in the French Army, ranks in the French Air Force and the ranks in the National Gendarmerie. Therefore, the rank of French Major can be considered the highest enlisted and Chief Warrant Officer rank commanding surely also the french equivalent of warrant officers being ( Adjudants ) or chief warrant officers being ( Chief Adjudants ) within by the various fields of warrant military specialties or occupations across the French Armed Forces enlisted ranks. On the other hand in the United States, the highest enlisted ranks have different term designations (contrary to Major in France) across the board in United States Armed Forces; Marine Corps (Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps), the Navy (Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy), the Army (Sergeant Major of the Army), the Air Force (Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force) and the Coast Guard (Master Chief Petty Officer of the Coast Guard). Truly rare ranks.(OJOM (talk) 07:50, 14 June 2015 (UTC)).
