WHO?[edit]

Keeps editing this page? I've been keeping it as updated as possible for I don't know how long, and someone keeps editing everything.

If there is anything to know about the station, I know it....

What is the point if someone else overwrites all the accuracies?

Why?[edit]

Why has it been reverted to a version that is full of innacuracies?!! It doesn't make sense!! --Differentgravy 14:59, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

Anyone shed some light...?[edit]

With so many RAF stations in the county, and historical airfields, there is no recognition of this in the station's programming.

Does anyone know what this is about? How do you recognise airfields in the station's programming? An hour of jet engine noises? --throup 00:12, 23 October 2005 (UTC)

Yeah, I'll delete it. --Differentgravy 22:09, 8 July 2006 (UTC)

What a mess[edit]

This para is particularly bad, on many levels:

"Only north of Lincoln is the FM frequency reasonably clear. Sadly, however, the good folk of the affluent Northern Lincoln Fringe villages rarely tune in to it because whilst the signal quality is good, the quality of the programming rarely matches the signal."

  • "Only north of Lincoln": no, it's fine across huge areas of the county. Lincoln-centric statement.
  • "Sadly": pov.
  • "affluent Northern Lincoln Fringe villages": what?
  • "programming rarely matches the signal": non-encylopedic.

That said, I think that some of the reverts have been rather reactionary. Is there no room for compromise - to describe the occasionally rather parochial content non-pejoratively and in context? TheVenerableBede 07:57, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

I think in respect of most of your points you're referring to the vandalised page - it's now been updated and locked. As for 'rather parochial content' - that is a point of view in itself (therefore the argument over in context and non-pejoratively is invalid), not a fact, so shouldn't exist. However, there should be some additions made to the presenter list, and some of the 'programming' section is out of date - can I suggest a return to this version? http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=BBC_Radio_Lincolnshire&oldid=62643077 User:Jameswick 23.34 20 July 2006

Absolutely. I just don't think that the content that keeps getting reverted is vandalism, per se, just bady expressed and bullishly asserted. The variation in signal quality in different areas of the county, the demographic of the listernership ("Affluent fringe" et al.(!)), and the nature, scope, and yes, quality of the programming should all be discussed in a radio station article ... just not like this. TheVenerableBede 08:04, 21 July 2006 (UTC)

Alot of things in that article are factually inaccurate, plus, "News reader gaffs" are not encycopaedic. I locked the page due to the heavy amount of vandalism/unneeded reverts. --Differentgravy 20:56, 21 July 2006 (UTC)

Please stop vandalising[edit]

It looks like someone is repeatedly vandalising this article. Please stop. Lee Stanley 21:57, 21 September 2006 (UTC)

BBC Lincolnshire[edit]

It's been ages since BBC Radio Lincolnshire was rebranded as BBC Lincolnshire. Why has it therefore been renamed from BBC Lincolnshire to BBC Radio Lincolnshire? I request the recent renaming (and the consequent overwriting of the redirect at BBC Radio Lincolnshire be undone.—GrahamSmith (talk) 02:29, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

The station's website is indeed headed "BBC Lincolnshire". However, the station consistently refers to itself on air as "BBC Radio Lincolnshire". -- Picapica (talk) 20:51, 19 May 2013 (UTC)
