Nice to see you back, you have been missed! - Ahunt (talk) 23:57, 26 February 2011 (UTC)
Definitely. You might want to keep an eye on WP:AIR/NC#Systemic common name rule violations re: the revised m-d-n aircraft article naming format. Suprisingly, that is the first real objection to the new format we've had since it was implemented 9 months ago. - BilCat (talk) 00:26, 27 February 2011 (UTC)

Proposed infobox sub-template[edit]

RL, I've removed the Infobox Type from the Next Generation Air Dominance [http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Next_Generation_Air_Dominance&curid=26633845&diff=417052196&oldid=417052092 here. I've been thinking for awhile that we could use an infobox sub-template for development programs. I'm not exactly sure what info it could provide, but if interested, we could open this up for discusion at WT:AIR, and see if there's any interest in having it. Thanks. - BilCat (talk) 09:07, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Thorp Aero until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on good quality evidence, and our policies and guidelines.

Dragon Fly 333[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Dragon Fly 333, and it appears to include material copied directly from http://medbib.com/DF334.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details.

Speedy deletion nomination of AAI Corporation[edit]

You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles. See the Article Wizard.

Thank you.

A tag has been placed on AAI Corporation, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article seems to be unambiguous advertising that only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an encyclopedia article. Please read the general criteria for speedy deletion, particularly item G11, as well as the guidelines on spam.

If you can indicate why the subject of this article is not blatant advertising, Speedy delete contest button.png. Clicking that button will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the the article's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. You may freely add information to the article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would help make it encyclopedic, as well as adding any citations from independent reliable sources to ensure that the article will be verifiable. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Chuglur (talk) 06:12, 16 April 2011 (UTC)

ANI[edit]

Proper placements of references[edit]

Since you raised this issue on the ZMC-2 article, I am providing an explanation about the proper placement of reference citations. This information is drawn from Wikipedia:Citing sources;

How to format and place citations[edit] Inline citationsShortcut: WP:INCITE

"An inline citation is a line of text—such as [1]—that identifies a source, and which is added close to the material it supports, offering text-source integrity. If a word or phrase is particularly contentious, an inline citation may be added next to that word or phrase within the sentence, but it is usually sufficient to add the citation to the end of the sentence or paragraph, so long as it's clear which source supports which part of the text."

I do hope this clears it up for you. You will note that this is different from your previous explanation. From this explanation it is not necessary to cite in mid-sentence or at the end of every sentence. Just one citation at the end of the paragraph will suffice so long as the information contained in the paragraph is all drawn from a common source, and of a common topic. - Ken keisel (talk) 19:10, 17 May 2011 (UTC)

WP Aircraft in the Signpost[edit]

"WikiProject Report" would like to focus on WikiProject Aircraft for a Signpost article. This is an excellent opportunity to draw attention to your efforts and attract new members to the project. Would you be willing to participate in an interview? If so, here are the questions for the interview. Just add your response below each question and feel free to skip any questions that you don't feel comfortable answering. Other editors will also have an opportunity to respond to the interview questions. If you know anyone else who would like to participate in the interview, please share this with them. Have a great day. -Mabeenot (talk) 04:04, 29 May 2011 (UTC)

Hispano template[edit]

Evening Rlandmann. About 3 years ago you started this template. It has on it types 50, 56 57 and 60. I'm reading Lage's book on Hispanao aviation and there is plenty on the HA-50 project which nearly got built (full scale mock-up). There is also a brief mention of a preliminary proposal for the HA-60, though it got no further. However, there no mention of HA-56 or H-57 so far as I can see (the book has no index, a great irritation). Do you recall your source? There is nothing on the web.TSRL (talk) 19:09, 4 September 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of AEG early aircraft[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article AEG early aircraft has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Long-term unreferenced stub. Information should be expanded in individual articles or moved into the company's article.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Notification of pending suspension of administrative permissions due to inactivity[edit]

Following a community discussion in June 2011, consensus was reached to provisionally suspend the administrative permissions of users who have been inactive for one year (i.e. administrators who have not made any edits or logged actions in over one year). As a result of this discussion, your administrative permissions will be removed pending your return if you do not return to activity within the next month. If you wish to have these permissions reinstated should this occur, please post to the Wikipedia:Bureaucrats' noticeboard and the userright will be restored per the re-sysopping process (i.e., as long as the attending bureaucrats are reasonably satisfied that your account has not been compromised and that your inactivity did not have the effect of evading scrutiny of any actions which might have led to sanctions). This removal of access is procedural only, and not intended to reflect negatively upon you in any way. We wish you the best in future endeavors, and thank you for your past administrative efforts.

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Rlandmann. This message is intended to notify administrators of important changes to the protection policy.

Extended confirmed protection (also known as "30/500 protection") is a new level of page protection that only allows edits from accounts at least 30 days old and with 500 edits. The automatically assigned "extended confirmed" user right was created for this purpose. The protection level was created following this community discussion with the primary intention of enforcing various arbitration remedies that prohibited editors under the "30 days/500 edits" threshold to edit certain topic areas.

In July and August 2016, a request for comment established consensus for community use of the new protection level. Administrators are authorized to apply extended confirmed protection to combat any form of disruption (e.g. vandalism, sock puppetry, edit warring, etc.) on any topic, subject to the following conditions:

  • Extended confirmed protection may only be used in cases where semi-protection has proven ineffective. It should not be used as a first resort.
  • A bot will post a notification at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard of each use. MusikBot currently does this by updating a report, which is transcluded onto the noticeboard.
Please review the protection policy carefully before using this new level of protection on pages. Thank you.

Two-Factor Authentication now available for admins[edit]

Hello,

Please note that TOTP based two-factor authentication is now available for all administrators. In light of the recent compromised accounts, you are encouraged to add this additional layer of security to your account. It may be enabled on your preferences page in the "User profile" tab under the "Basic information" section. For basic instructions on how to enable two-factor authentication, please see the developing help page for additional information. Important: Be sure to record the two-factor authentication key and the single use keys. If you lose your two factor authentication and do not have the keys, it's possible that your account will not be recoverable. Furthermore, you are encouraged to utilize a unique password and two-factor authentication for the email account associated with your Wikimedia account. This measure will assist in safeguarding your account from malicious password resets. Comments, questions, and concerns may be directed to the thread on the administrators' noticeboard.

A new user right for New Page Patrollers[edit]

Hi Rlandmann.

A new user group, New Page Reviewer, has been created in a move to greatly improve the standard of new page patrolling. The user right can be granted by any admin at PERM. It is highly recommended that admins look beyond the simple numerical threshold and satisfy themselves that the candidates have the required skills of communication and an advanced knowledge of notability and deletion. Admins are automatically included in this user right.

It is anticipated that this user right will significantly reduce the work load of admins who patrol the performance of the patrollers. However,due to the complexity of the rollout, some rights may have been accorded that may later need to be withdrawn, so some help will still be needed to some extent when discovering wrongly applied deletion tags or inappropriate pages that escape the attention of less experienced reviewers, and above all, hasty and bitey tagging for maintenance. User warnings are available here but very often a friendly custom message works best.

If you have any questions about this user right, don't hesitate to join us at WT:NPR. (Sent to all admins).MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:47, 15 November 2016 (UTC)

  • When performing some administrative actions the reason field briefly gave suggestions as text was typed. This change has since been reverted so that issues with the implementation can be addressed. (T34950)
  • Following the latest RfC concluding that Pending Changes 2 should not be used on the English Wikipedia, an RfC closed with consensus to remove the options for using it from the page protection interface, a change which has now been made. (T156448)
  • The Foundation has announced a new community health initiative to combat harassment. This should bring numerous improvements to tools for admins and CheckUsers in 2017.

HF F.20[edit]

Hi, I have been exhaustively informed by several anoraks in England that a Henri Farman F.20 is a HF F.20 and not a Farman HF.20 as we have it. Can we rectify it? Comment? Thanks. --BeckenhamBear (talk) 19:23, 23 February 2017 (UTC)

TPS Comment - BeckenhamBear all of Henri Farman's aircraft appear in wikipedia as "Farman HF.XX" so it may be better asking this question at the Aircraft project talk page as it would change a number of different articles, thanks. MilborneOne (talk) 21:31, 23 February 2017 (UTC)

famousbirthdays.com is not a reliable source[edit]

Hi Rlandmann. I'm in the process of removing famousbirthdays.com as a source from Wikipedia, because it's not reliable (See Wikipedia:Reliable_sources/Noticeboard/Archive_153#Is_famousbirthdays.com_a_reliable_source_for_personal_information). I noticed that you've added it, and wanted to make sure you understood why it's being removed. If you disagree, let's discuss it. Thanks. --Ronz (talk) 17:02, 26 February 2017 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 10[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Barre (exercise), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Relevé (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.
