Welcome to the Military history WikiProject![edit]

Waricon.svg

Hi, and welcome to the Military history WikiProject! As you may have guessed, we're a group of editors working to improve Wikipedia's coverage of topics related to military history.

A few features that you might find helpful:

There are a variety of interesting things to do within the project; you're free to participate however much—or little—you like:

  • Starting some new articles? Our article structure guidelines outline some things to include.
  • Interested in working on a more complete article? The military history peer review and collaboration departments would welcome your help!
  • Interested in a particular area of military history? We have a number of task forces that focus on specific nations or periods.
  • Want to know how good our articles are? The assessment department is working on rating the quality of every military history article in Wikipedia.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask one of the project coordinators, or any experienced member of the project, and we'll be happy to help you. Again, welcome! We look forward to seeing you around! Kirill Lokshin 05:04, 30 June 2006 (UTC)

Your edit to propane[edit]

Hi, I saw your contribution to propane. It may be me, but it sounds a bit contradictory what you have written there. The 'green gas' in aerosols is propane (according to the website) .. but you changed the text to the opinion 'people think that green gas is propane' .. what do you mean now? --Dirk Beetstra T C 19:44, 13 August 2006 (UTC)

I said this because many people (myself included) are not convinced by the evidence. First of all, the man who conducted this research has a commercial interest -- namely, he sells the adapter that allows a player to use the commonly available propane tanks with gas-blowback guns. He/his company charges $30 for this adapter. I think it's in his best interest to see that every airsoft player is convinced that green gas == propane, so that everyone will own an adapter.
As we know in Wikipedia, peer review is important, and I have not read any other studies trying to prove this matter one way or the other, nor have I read any articles on the issue that say anything but "I'm no chemist, but...". Show me more studies on the subject, especially by someone who has no vested interest in the results. Until then, I'm a skeptic. --UNHchabo 22:29, 13 August 2006 (UTC)
OK, thanks for the explanation. I am reverting the edit, but will insert a 'reference needed' (maybe keeping yours there as well). --Dirk Beetstra T C 22:34, 13 August 2006 (UTC)
P.S. I see you remove discussions from your talk-page. In general that is considered 'vandalizing' (even to own talk-pages). May I suggest archiving? --Dirk Beetstra T C 22:34, 13 August 2006 (UTC)
I didn't think much of it, cause it's just the newsletter from the Military History WikiProject, not comments to me specifically. You are correct, so I think I will archive those newsletters somewhere. Thanks. As for the article, go ahead, I just don't want "green gas == propane" being presented as this is fact, since I'm not quite convinced of that yet. --UNHchabo 22:39, 13 August 2006 (UTC)
OK (it was just a warning, if you ever end up in an edit war or something alike, it might be used against you). About "green gas" = propane. I know that propane is used as a propellant gas in aerosols. I must indeed confess, for a 'gun like machine', I'd prefer to use something that does not burn at all (N2O?). I have given both a {{reference needed}}, I hope that your reference does not show up for the second one, but a more reliable source. --Dirk Beetstra T C 22:46, 13 August 2006 (UTC)
According to that article, most types of green gas are flammable (hence part of the initial speculation that it might be propane), but since there's no ignition inside the device, there isn't much danger of fire. The gas is used to propel the projectile directly, rather than rely on the expansion when ignited like gunpowder does. I don't doubt that propane works very well in airsoft guns, nor do I doubt that propane and "green gas" have similar properties. My contention is whether they are, in fact, the same substance. Also, other gases are used, like CO2, compressed air, and other refrigerants, just green gas happens to be the most common nowadays--UNHchabo 23:04, 13 August 2006 (UTC)
Except for the point that the actual research has been done by a company that sells propane (which indeed makes me sceptic), what other reason do you have to distrust their results? I mean, you must have more proof than that? Kind regards. --Dirk Beetstra T C 13:03, 14 August 2006 (UTC)
I don't have any evidence to disprove that claim, I just want to see more evidence to back up the claim before everyone accepts it as canon. It's like if Ferrari claimed that their new car outperforms Lamborghini's model. I have no means of proving or disproving this, so I just have to wait until some professional driver drives both and tells us what the deal is. --UNHchabo 04:27, 15 August 2006 (UTC)

Your editor review[edit]

Hi! I'm terribly sorry it's taken this long, but I finally got around to reviewing you at your review page despite having placed your stats there almost a week ago. I normally try to review people on the same day they request it, but I guess you just slipped through the cracks. Sorry! :) Daveydweeb (chat/patch) 03:37, 9 September 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:War at home.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading Image:War at home.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. -Panser Born- (talk) 18:23, 26 May 2007 (UTC)


Replaceable fair use Image:BerettaEliteII.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:BerettaEliteII.jpg. I notice the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the image description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original Replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or a similar) image under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that fair use images which could be replaced by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted 7 days after this notification, per our Fair Use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. MER-C 09:24, 23 July 2007 (UTC)


Orphaned non-free media (Image:G18 comp.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:G18 comp.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 05:13, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
