Russia v USSREdit
I have moved your post to the bottom of the Adolf Hitler talk page. As you may not know new comments are placed at the bottom of talk pages and so this one is less likely to be overlooked there. Britmax (talk) 13:29, 18 February 2012 (UTC)
thank you sir!
As I've said on the aricle talk page, I cannot see substansive plagarism or close paraphrasing between Jones and the article. Indeed there appear to be closer similarities between Jones and other WP:RS's than there are between Jones and the article. I've raised the question on Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Aircraft to get more opions however. Your further comments are welcome, either on the article talk page or at WP:Aircraft.Nigel Ish (talk) 17:48, 4 March 2012 (UTC)
How to organize the fixing of a common error?Edit
I have fixed over the years hundreds of erroneous articles across many topics (though mainly history and technology) where the writers have used the term 'Russian' where 'Soviet' was actually meant. My changing of this should be uncontroversial, since it's a pretty clear cut case of historical fact (for example, that references to the "Russian Air Force" in World War 2 or the "Russian Space Program" during the 1960s are factually incorrect - there were simply no such things at the time). Remarkably, I find my changes undone quite often. Even though I do put a note about this on the talk page sometimes, I suspect that a lot of these 'undos' are due to genuine ignorance. How do I use the wikipedia system to create a single page that lets people know of the difference and why its important and give guides for proper usage? Ideally, this would be joined with some sort of banner that can be used on the 'talk' page of affected articles. There are likely to be between 2,000 to 10,000 such incorrect usages of the term 'Russian' in English Wikipedia today and probably considerably more, proportionally speaking, in several non-English versions. About 1/2 to 2/3 of the pages that I look at that could have this error, do.
- I suggest that you raise the issue at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Russia, which is the discussion board for editors interested in Russian topics. I notice that there is also a Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Soviet Union, but that appears to be sleeping. Stuartyeates (talk) 21:57, 17 June 2012 (UTC)
Hello, I'm DAJF. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Odakyu 30000 series EXE, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. --DAJF (talk) 13:02, 21 June 2013 (UTC)

Come on Dave, you're having an effing laugh. You know as much about japanese trains as any english language speaker, and so do I. My comments on the EXE are bloody commmon knowledge at this point to anybody who knows anything about japanese trains. Don't be one of those wikipedia pencildicks who insists on sourcing for the bloody obvious, though if you want a source, look up mike nakada's 'allaboutjapanesetrains' website. i'm sure with your knowledge of japanese, you could have found 100 references saying about the same sooner than it would have taken you to write back here.
It seems to me that an article you worked on, Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Kakamigahara Air Museum, may be copied from http://www.aviationmuseum.eu/World/Asia/Japan/Gifu/Kakamigahara_Aerospace_Museum.htm. It's entirely possible that I made a mistake, but I wanted to let you know because Wikipedia is strict about copying from other sites.
It's important that you edit the article and rewrite it in your own words, unless you're absolutely certain nothing in it is copied. If you're not sure how to fix the problem or have any questions, there are people at the help desk who are happy to assist you.
Going by your IRC log, and what you have said, this article is going to be deleted, as a copyright violation, and you said you no longer have interest in editing this article. So it will be deleted. Danger^Mouse (talk) 11:11, 4 November 2013 (UTC)
