Yea, I've seen the same thing with other games and "item lists" on Wikipedia. Usually those kinds of things get the kind of depth they deserve (where each item on the list gets a page) at a title specific wiki site.

Seems to be lumping in flight sims with FPS's. Not the same. It's fine to read about an FPS and it says something like "Has the usual assortment of weapons: pistol, shotgun, assault rifle, grenades, etc." The emphasis is going around killing things with whatever weapon. But with a serious flight sim the focus is much more on the aircraft modeling, the aircraft is more important so the aircraft type is more important, IMHO.

You might consider to user the SimHQ articles as secondary source - SimHQ is clearly a "reliable secondary source independent of the subject"

Personally, I use Wiki very frequently for aircraft data, mostly to update performance configs in sim aircraft (esp. FSX).

But what are specs if not a list?

Then you get lists of aircraft numbers, who bought them, sometimes crashes etc etc etc. They are not games, but where is the difference?


I say it as I see it

I already use this nickname for more than 10 years - at least you took the time to change the artistic presentation. wink
There are other plagiarists, that don't even care to take that step: WhoCares grrr
Ah well, in the end it is for a good cause - so, who cares...
(Just kidding)
As long as you don't say that you use Wiki data for Sim configs - if you tried to argue flight models with Wiki data you would get toasted in the RoF forum lawncareby20mm
But you will always have the wrong data anyway, at least from someones perspective. Who cares...

My point exactly and something I wrote on the Talk page for the ROF article.

Personally, I'm about ready to just forget it all and let people like Eik Corell enjoy ruling their little fiefdoms. Apparently they draw great pleasure from such things.

The internet is full of "heid the baals", as we say. One called 'Kurfurst' might be familiar to old school IL2 players. There is History, and then there is Kurfstory, ("Kurfursts Story"). 'Kurfstory' is essentially a parallel universe in which nothing that actually happened in reality occurs, a dimension not of sight and sound, but of twisted mind. In this bizarre alternative reality, cogent, coherent arguments and factual truths are destroyed by a swirling maelstrom of Horsesh*t and entirely fabricated porkie pies, known as the "Kurf Horizon". Not a single true fact or reasonable point has ever been known to escape or survive its influence.

I just laugh at them. hahaha I've never bothered with wiki, and wouldn't know how to edit things even if I wanted to....which I definitely don't. Let em get on with it. Very sad, and they need to get out a bit more. smile


Yup have to love Barbi's uber Nazi revisionist history.

He has been banned from editing Wiki articles on WW2.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

I'd be most intrigued to know what exactly he changed on the WW2 article that could be considered revisionist.

Check out the Battle of Britain, Spitfire, Me109 articles.

Then there is the Banana board, where Barbi, and the one called Crumpp, tried their revisionism on the use of 100 octane fuel during the BoB.
