Proposed deletion of 1942 RAF Hudson Crash[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article 1942 RAF Hudson Crash has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

An aviation accident at night during wartime is not uncommon. Equally that one of the occupants was famous does not make the crash notable of itself - Referencing so far does not meet criteria of "significant coverage"

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist.

GraemeLeggett (talk) 22:02, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

That's a template message. I've toned down the alarmist triangle and wanted to let you know I've left a note about the issue of referencing on the article talk page. If there is anything to be said on Wikipedia about crash, it probably ought to go on William Parr's page; the crash doesn't stand out of itself save for his presence. GraemeLeggett (talk) 22:07, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

cider![edit]

Thanks for your work on the list of ciders in Dorset. I remember seeing the same format used for the Devon list and thought that we need a bit of a rethink. It currently still feels a bit like something you'd find in the yellow pages. For lists to be of use to Wikipedia, we should try and strive to add more than just the location and a website. Perhaps we could add other columns for the year it was founded and/or ceased operation. Maybe coordinates as well as just the name of the town (see List of Scheduled Monuments in Greater Manchester). Anyway, these are just a few tips on how to strive for greatness if you're interested in working on the article. If we set a good example for the Dorset one, it could be used as a standard for the rest of the cider lists. Jolly Ω Janner 09:36, 3 March 2016 (UTC)

Its from the format I found at List of cider and perry producers in the United Kingdom (which does include website links). I went on to create separate lists Cornwall, Devon and Dorset. I added an establishment date for the Cornwall list but sometimes the companies dont make it clear. Talskiddy (talk) 10:35, 3 March 2016 (UTC)
It's encouraging to see your work on improving the articles. There's a couple of pointers for improvement when looking to doing the same for other articles. One is that the map was too large for my screen's resolution. You could try moving it to its own section at the bottom, but it might just be easier to link to a map offline, as I have done in the article. Secondly, the coordinates were overly precise (four decimal places are normally the maximum for a building). I haven't amended all the coordinates yet. I may do it if I have have time, but hopefully you can get the idea from the revision history if you decided to take it on yourself. Jolly Ω Janner 20:52, 12 March 2016 (UTC)

Re: "William Noye lived at Carnanton, but may have been in an earlier house. Worth mentioning?

Europe 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Europe/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like Germany, Italy, the Benelux countries, Iberian Peninsula, Romania, Slovenia etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. If you would like to see masses of articles being improved for Europe and your specialist country like Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon, sign up today and once the challenge starts a contest can be organized. This is a way we can target every country of Europe, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant and also sign under any country sub challenge on the page that you might contribute to! Thank you. --MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 21:09, 7 November 2016 (UTC)

Sandbox and categories.[edit]

The reason that I added colons to the categories in your sandbox is that most categories that are used for articles in mainspace (that have been published) should not also be used for articles in userspace. For example, if someone copied the article on Winston Churchill to their userspace for work, that would be fine, but while there, it should not contain [[Category:British Prime Ministers]] otherwise, that would mess up the category. The standard way to do this is to put Colons after the double brackets, so [[:Category:British Prime Ministers]] which would make the show up as links rather than becoming part of those categories. While for the most part people can do what they want in their sandboxes, this is a case where policies should be followed and the colon added.Naraht (talk) 20:03, 4 December 2017 (UTC)

File source problem with File:James Polkinghorne.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:James Polkinghorne.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next seven days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged.
