GAN review request[edit]

I nominated Virgin Atlantic Little Red for GA a few months ago. An editor made a comment that they didn't want to review it and asked for a second opinion. Suddenly they shut it without warning or a fully explained reason. I have since renominated and I am now placing it out here, to ask the project for that second opinion in a new GAR please.

History of aviation in New Zealand[edit]

G'day all, I have moved the History of aviation in New Zealand article from user space into article space on behalf of its author Huttoldboys. It isn't really a topic I'm familiar with, so if anyone here is keen to help improve the article further I'd greatly appreciate it. Cheers, AustralianRupert (talk) 00:12, 13 June 2016 (UTC)

Hawker Hunter Tower Bridge incident[edit]

Should an article, even one titled "incident", be categorized as an "incident"? Or because it's not an accident, should it not be categorized under "accidents and incidents"?

Or should it be removed, per 3RR edit-warring [1] [2] [3] by a single editor with refusal to discuss in the article?

The claim has been made that this is not an incident (for WP cat) because it is not an accident or incident per the ICAO. However the ICAO definition of "incident" is "An occurrence, other than an accident, associated with the operation of an aircraft which affects or could affect the safety of operation". This is clearly an occurrence, and flying beneath a bridge structure would have to be seen as "could affect the safety of operation". Andy Dingley (talk) 13:12, 22 June 2016 (UTC)

It is clearly an incident, even though there was no damage or injuries. Therefore categorizing under "accidents and incidents" is correct. Mjroots (talk) 17:29, 22 June 2016 (UTC)

Notice to participants at this page about adminship[edit]

Many participants here create a lot of content, have to evaluate whether or not a subject is notable, decide if content complies with BLP policy, and much more. Well, these are just some of the considerations at Wikipedia:Requests for adminship.

So, please consider taking a look at and watchlisting this page:

You could be very helpful in evaluating potential candidates, and maybe even finding out if you would be a suitable RfA candidate.

Many thanks and best wishes,

Looking for feedback on a tool on Visual Editor to add open license text from other sources[edit]

Hi all

I'm designing a tool for Visual Editor to make it easy for people to add open license text from other sources, there are a huge number of open license sources compatible with Wikipedia including around 9000 journals. I can see a very large opportunity to easily create a high volume of good quality articles quickly. I have done a small project with open license text from UNESCO as a proof of concept, any thoughts, feedback or endorsements (on the Meta page) would be greatly appreciated.
