1st Cavalry Division (Kingdom of Yugoslavia)

This is to let you know that the above article has been scheduled as today's featured article for December 6, 2020. Please check the article needs no amendments. If you're interested in editing the main page text, you're welcome to do so at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/December 6, 2020. Congratulations on your work!—Wehwalt (talk) 15:24, 16 November 2020 (UTC)

Thanks Wehwalt, the fact all these Yugoslav army units only fought in the April War makes it hard to shoehorn them all into April, so I'm happy to see them get a run whenever. Peacemaker67 (click to talk to me) 02:39, 24 November 2020 (UTC)


Thanks for the help !! I've asked the person who wrote the script to run through WP:URFA/2020 and delete the column that has the latest FAC/FAR link, because the page is just too huge and impossible to edit. Waiting to see if they can do that, which will leave us more room for comments. But maybe you can reduce the size of your comments by just adding the diff to people you've contacted, followed by your sig. Bst, SandyGeorgia (Talk) 00:57, 22 November 2020 (UTC)

Also, thinking in terms of standardization for sorting that colums ... I have used the terms "noticed", "At FAR", and "Satisfactory" ... maybe you can just put "Notified" followed by a diff ? SandyGeorgia (Talk) 01:12, 22 November 2020 (UTC)
Sure, wasn't really sure what was preferred there. Peacemaker67 (click to talk to me) 01:36, 22 November 2020 (UTC)
Still trying to figure it out, but had not counted on the hugeness of the file! SandyGeorgia (Talk) 01:40, 22 November 2020 (UTC)
Yes, very laggy on my iMac. Peacemaker67 (click to talk to me) 01:46, 22 November 2020 (UTC)
OK, how is it now? I put some instructions at the top for keeping comments brief and some ideas for moving articles off the list. (Which meant removing some of your sig files, as those can chunk up the already huge page.) Bst, SandyGeorgia (Talk) 22:12, 22 November 2020 (UTC)
Better now. I'll use that model from now on. Peacemaker67 (click to talk to me) 00:40, 23 November 2020 (UTC)

Is there anything here that needs to be noticed? If so, we should put that on talk and include the diff at URFA; Cla ain't comin' back to Wikipedia, so that comment won't help us move forward. Does the article have issues, or can we we pass it to "Satisfactory"? If it has issues, we need to list them on talk. Sure do miss Cla :( Bst, SandyGeorgia (Talk) 03:47, 23 November 2020 (UTC)

I've decided to start a thread on Milhist about the project articles that are on this list and don't have an active principal editor, so you can delete it. Peacemaker67 (click to talk to me) 03:52, 23 November 2020 (UTC)
OK ... but it looked OK to me ... are there deficiencies? I want to get the page off on the right foot, so we don't have people filling it with random commentary that doesn't head us towards yea or nay on FAR. Those that have no deficiencies can be moved off the list if several editors agree ... Bst, SandyGeorgia (Talk) 03:59, 23 November 2020 (UTC)
The key issues with most of the Milhist ones with no active principal editor I've looked at so far is a few missing citations and some questionable prose, but they really need someone to look at recent scholarship as well. That is why I am listing them at Milhist, to get a range of views. When I have a consensus on whether there are real problems with one, I'll note it on the WP:URFA/2020 page. Peacemaker67 (click to talk to me) 05:33, 23 November 2020 (UTC)
Thanks! Keep in mind not to be too strict ... we don’t need to defeature a ton of articles over a sentence or two here and there ... SandyGeorgia (Talk) 05:37, 23 November 2020 (UTC)
Also, because that page is so huge, be sure to mention the real deficiencies on article talk, with just a diff back to URFA ... trying to keep the page manageable. Thanks for the effort! SandyGeorgia (Talk) 05:39, 23 November 2020 (UTC)

Tito-Stalin split

Hi there! Long time no type. I was wondering if you could help me decide if Tito–Stalin split article belongs to Milhist or not. Off the bat, I thought it does not, but then I noticed The Great Game is within the project scope... so, I'm lost. Regards Tomobe03 (talk) 19:00, 23 November 2020 (UTC)

G'day Tomobe03, I think the incursions and Yugoslav deaths plus the coup plotting gets it over the line. Cheers, Peacemaker67 (click to talk to me) 22:53, 24 November 2020 (UTC)

File:Yugo History map of invasion 7th Army.jpg

I did a color correction on this file? Did I go too far? What do you think? --- C&C (Coffeeandcrumbs) 09:00, 24 November 2020 (UTC)

Hi Coffeeandcrumbs, thanks for your efforts, but I think it is too dark, makes it harder to read the markings rather than easier. Peacemaker67 (click to talk to me) 02:09, 27 November 2020 (UTC)

List of genocides by death toll

There seems to be a dispute there on whether the crimes committed by Chetniks should be included or not [1]. You could probably help those involved editors, since you have experience with such stuff. Ktrimi991 (talk) 22:36, 24 November 2020 (UTC)

Re:USS Missouri (BB-63)

Actually, a closer look shows all Iowa class battleships save but for Kentucky are on that list. I'm thinking A word in the Bugle wold be useful to alert editors that these articles need a look see and as a coordinator I'm wondering if this may be a good subject to build a march madness campaign around - specifically to get everything done between now and March. TomStar81 (Talk) 17:05, 25 November 2020 (UTC)

Hi Tom, if you could have a look at them all and let us know they are ok, that would be great. If you can't do that, please let me know? Thanks, Peacemaker67 (click to talk to me) 08:34, 26 November 2020 (UTC)

I took a preliminary look under the hood today using {{pagelinks|}} and {{Wikipedia:Featured article tools|1=}}, and thankfully Missouri's is good shape for the most part, a good 95% or so of the links and other FA-relevent material is still present and accounted for. Alt text needs help, and according to the checker I have one link resolved as being DOA, but on the whole this is still a featured article - at least as far as the toolboxes are concerned. I'll take a look at the others as times permits and let you know what I find. In the mean time, as a stop gap measure, I posted a notice concerning the list on the milhist announcements template in hopes that our contribution corps will see it and take some action. Happy Thanksgiving! TomStar81 (Talk) 12:18, 26 November 2020 (UTC)

Thanks Tom! Peacemaker67 (click to talk to me) 02:11, 27 November 2020 (UTC)

Sorry for the mega edits

Sorry for the re-edits of my comments on talk pages. I’m a bit obsessive compulsive and end up restructuring or refining my edits again and again when I think of a better possible way of explaining. A bad characteristic of mine that frustrates those trying to respond, I know. As you complained about me doing so before.... again apologiesOyMosby (talk) 01:47, 27 November 2020 (UTC)

OK. Peacemaker67 (click to talk to me) 02:07, 27 November 2020 (UTC)
