Ford Capri image[edit]

I notice you have placed an image at Ford Capri which is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike License. It is poorly indicated on the Wikipedia help pages, but noncommercial-only images are deprecated here and will probably be removed in future.

Good stuff! Nice to see another image contributor. There are huge numbers of articles begging for an image ... —Morven 13:03, Sep 7, 2004 (UTC)

Rail transport modelling[edit]

Hi - I hope you don't mind that I replaced the photo you uploaded to the "Methods of power" section. If you can find (or shoot) a photo showing the boiler of the locomotive, it would be more appropriate in that section. It's still an excellent image on the "Live steam" page, showing the contrast to the large 2-10-0. Could you put the scale of the Mamod engine into your photo caption, to point out the size difference - one might not realize it from the photos alone.

I also replaced the image on the Scale model page with something that is more appropriate - I think you must agree the Mamod is more a toy than a real scale model. --Janke | Talk 17:14, 11 August 2005 (UTC)

Altrop[edit]

My point Amos was that it is a rumour contrary to any evidence. If we include material like that in wiki we might as well add the moon being made of cheese.

Flickr Tag linking[edit]

Hello. I finally rediscovered my feature request after losing it for 2 months (very careless of me). Does your Flickr template exist? Nobody else contributed to that discussion. I suppose I'm nervous about what it might unleash. Ie, increasing the likelihood of Flickr tag spamming, perhaps. I'd be grateful if you'd let me know about the template on my talk page (as my Watchlist is so long I shall lose you if you reply here). Regards, --bodnotbod 02:47, 17 October 2005 (UTC)

  • Excellent work, sir: that's marvellous. --bodnotbod 13:55, 17 October 2005 (UTC)
    • Hmmm, doesn't seem to work very well on Ice cream, give it a try. Assuming the problem is that the pagename is more than one word, I think ideally I'd like to see it so that each word had a + sign instead of a space between words when it's transformed into the URL. I suspect something like that is going to be a lot harder to achieve. Let me know if the advice is to limit the template to one-word topics. Best wishes, --bodnotbod 20:01, 17 October 2005 (UTC)

Vandalism by User:203.26.2.2[edit]

I noticed you gave User:203.26.2.2 as final warning for vandalism (on that user's talk page. I have reverted two items of vandalism, Kevin Johnson and Inca Empire.

No, it really is broken[edit]

From here

When I try, it says 'the page cannot be displayed'. To be honest, I was going to make a List of fictional moles. I can only think of three, and one I'm not really sure it counts. Maybe it better be List of fictional moles and other borrowing mammals. AAAAAADDDR 11:22, 23 October 2005 (UTC)

If you read your comments above, you will notice both titles are red (or have a red question mark). Click the title of the page you want to create, and you will see a message that "Wikipedia does not yet have a page called List of fictional moles". Any text you enter in the box below will form the new page when you click the Save button. You could take a look at List of fictional rabbits to give you some ideas for page layouts, section headings, etc. Don't worry if you can only think of three fictional moles - others will soon add more if there are any. -=# Amos E Wolfe talk #=- 15:53, 23 October 2005 (UTC)

I know all that, but it really does say 'this page cannot be displayed', as in, the page is broken., there's a 404 etc. And now my row of links at the top, with my name and stuff, runs away and hides under the Wikipedia logo when I try and click it. Kid Apathy 18:56, 23 October 2005 (UTC)

Sorcery (disambiguation)[edit]

I noticed your recent edit to Sorcery (disambiguation). Disambiguation pages are not articles and as such have special style characteristics, which inlcude not providing excess wikilinks (which distract readers) and not using piping (which confuses readers). Wikipedia:Manual of Style (disambiguation pages) has more information, and I'm happy to answer any questions. --Commander Keane 16:06, 13 November 2005 (UTC)

Wikipedia now supports SVG images, would you be able to upload the image in that format? boffy_b 14:19, 8 April 2006 (UTC)

Agreed it would be nice to have a vector version, for example i just removed a traced shadow that looked really weired as it was the only one traced. But i'm sure i could have done a better job of doing so if i'd had the original vector source to work with. Plugwash 23:37, 7 May 2006 (UTC)

Maps of Sodor[edit]

Hi. I noticed that you removed the comment about 'Marthwaite' from the maps on Sodor (fictional island).

Good stuff!

Had you considered doing this elsewhere too? The same comments exist on North Western Railway (fictional), and maybe other pages too (sorry, haven't checked). I thought about copying your edit, but then thought it would be more appropriate for you to do yourself.

Unspecified source for Image:Rail-97651-amoswolfe.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Rail-97651-amoswolfe.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, then you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, then their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 00:08, 8 July 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Videmus Omnia 00:08, 8 July 2007 (UTC)

Orton Mere[edit]

Why have you moved this page? Where is the discussion/ consensus? Please revert yourself, Orton Mere is not just a railway station. 163.167.129.124 11:36, 11 July 2007 (UTC)

Looks like you haven't quite read the first para: "Orton Mere is a station[...]and several moorings for boats navigating the River Nene" David Underdown 14:34, 11 July 2007 (UTC)
The point is it is not just an NVR station, as anyone who has spent any time in the city would know. How many railway stations do you know that have "several moorings for boats navigating the River Nene" etc. The station is only one part of Orton Mere. Please revert the move as per my original request, as there has obviously been no discussion/ consensus reached for it. Also, I do not understand your comments here. 163.167.129.124 08:48, 12 July 2007 (UTC)

Oxford Wikimania 2010 and Wikimedia UK v2.0 Notice[edit]

Hi,

As a regularly contributing UK Wikipedian, we were wondering if you wanted to contribute to the Oxford bid to host the 2010 Wikimania conference. Please see here for details of how to get involved, we need all the help we can get if we are to put in a compelling bid.

We are also in the process of forming a new UK Wikimedia chapter to replace the soon to be folded old one. If you are interested in helping shape our plans, showing your support or becoming a future member or board member, please head over to the Wikimedia UK v2.0 page and let us know. We plan on holding an election in the next month to find the initial board, who will oversee the process of founding the company and accepting membership applications. They will then call an AGM to formally elect a new board who after obtaining charitable status will start the fund raising, promotion and active support for the UK Wikimedian community for which the chapter is being founded.

You may also wish to attend the next London meet-up at which both of these issues will be discussed. If you can't attend this meetup, you may want to watch Wikipedia:Meetup, for updates on future meets.

We look forward to hearing from you soon, and we send our apologies for this automated intrusion onto your talk page!

Orphaned non-free image (Image:Pete-Atkin-Album-Lakeside-Sessions.jpg)[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading Image:Pete-Atkin-Album-Lakeside-Sessions.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Aspects (talk) 20:35, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Dear AmosWolfe.[edit]

Thanks for your contribution to the page List of Great Central Railway locomotives earlier on today, it looks better than my own 48305 picture by far. I publish this because I will of course, as the possibly page's biggest contributer continue adding more information on the relevant subject in question, but it would be nice to replace any of my stock photos if the quality is superior to them. The images of D4067, 4141, 63601, 30777, 78019 and several of the LNER Teaks are worth replacing because when I took them they were either rushed from a carriage window or else taken with huge amount of sunlight clearly shown within them, plus the picture of 70013 doesn't always seem to "work" due to the wherabouts of the photo's taking being away from the railway itself, so see what you can find if possible. Yours sincerly. —   DuchessofSutherland (t/c) 20:34, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

Delapre[edit]

Why the renaming? I've had a quick click around of relevant links, and the only place I can see 'Delapré' rather than 'Delapre' is in the image banner on http://www.delapreabbey.org/. Northampton Borough Council uses 'Delapre', Ordnance Survey uses 'Delapre', and even Friends of Delapre Abbey uses 'Delapre' on the rest of its site.

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 04:45, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

Railway icons[edit]

[3] What's going on? Is this an official move, or some sort of joke? I obviously missed the discussion. I imagine hundreds of broken templates now.. eg Template:York Junction, Leeds and Selby Railway, 1840 Template:Hull & Barnsley Railway Template:Cawood, Wistow and Selby Light Railway are all bust, I had these on watchlist - no mention.

Can't some bot do this task, should I ask about this?Sf5xeplus (talk) 19:58, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

Also see Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Trains#Railway_icons Sf5xeplus (talk) 20:07, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. If a bot has been given the task should the icons not be changed manually at all? I wonder if the bot will come along and swap the ones you swapped...
I think the best thing to to would be ask the bot owner if it's still working.Sf5xeplus (talk) 11:32, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
It looks like you have been fixing alphabetically - when a bot can be got working it can start from where you left off.Sf5xeplus (talk) 12:10, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

More[edit]

See Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Trains#List_of_articles_already_fixed I've assumed you've fixed all the articles up to "Bristol", starting at "aaa" - is this correct.?

If you go further can you update the list. Thanks.Sf5xeplus (talk) 19:00, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

Template:Romford to Upminster Line[edit]

Amos,

I'm no expert on the line diagram templates, but for some reason your edits today to Template:Romford to Upminster Line broke the presentation of the main article Romford to Upminster Line. The problem was raised at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Trains#Someone with coding skills, and as a temporary solution I reverted your changes. Perhaps you can fathom out what went wrong?

BS template and WPBS[edit]

Hi, re this and similar edits: it's my belief that {{BS template}} should be outside the {{WikiProjectBannerShell}} (it's not a WikiProject banner), so I've started a thread at Template talk:BS template#Placement. --Redrose64 (talk) 12:11, 12 November 2010 (UTC)

CONT icons on waterway maps[edit]

Thanks for all your work putting CONT icons on waterway maps. I have had to revert a couple, however, as they imply a continuation where there is not one. The two branches on Trinity Broads do not go anywhere, and the Southwold Harbour railway branch stops at the harbour, rather than continuing into the North Sea. Bob1960evens (talk) 18:35, 23 December 2010 (UTC)

Can you please check that waterways actually continue somewhere before just adding CONT symbols on to the end of everything. I have just had to delete quite a lot from the Cambridgeshire lodes. Bob1960evens (talk) 23:55, 23 December 2010 (UTC)
I have just found the Template:River Thurne map. What evidence and sources do you have for a continuation of Martham Staithe beyond what was originally shown, please? My OS maps show it as a short stub as it was originally drawn. In some cases it has taken considerable poring over maps and books to get the details right, and now I suspect I might need to check lots of maps for inaccuracies caused by the addition of CONT symbols where there is no evidence that the waterway continues. Bob1960evens (talk) 23:01, 16 January 2011 (UTC)
Hi, I have just removed a CONT icon from Template:Aberdare Canal map, since there is no evidence that it ever continued beyond its terminus. Bob1960evens (talk) 10:24, 24 February 2011 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion, guidelines for use at WP:MINOR). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and all users will still be able to manually mark their edits as being minor in the usual way.

For well-established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 21:00, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

Hi Amos, a page I contributed has been listed for speedy deletion - but I am not sure how (where?) to put the hang on tag and a reason why it shouldn't be. Please help!

Speedy deletion nomination of Template:South London Line[edit]

A tag has been placed on Template:South London Line requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section T3 of the criteria for speedy deletion because it is a deprecated or orphaned template. After seven days, if it is still unused and the speedy deletion tag has not been removed, the template will be deleted.

If the template is intended to be substituted, please feel free to remove the speedy deletion tag and please consider putting a note on the template's page indicating that it must be substituted so as to avoid any future mistakes (<noinclude>{{substituted}}</noinclude>).

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Bulwersator (talk) 15:54, 9 December 2011 (UTC)

Aylsham Bypass Tunnel[edit]

Possibly the best sentence anywhere on Wikipedia: "The original East Norfolk Railway crossed Bure Valley Lane at this point, by means of a level crossing, but the combination of heavy traffic and small steam trains is not encouraged in modern transport policies."

Page protection[edit]

Do you want me to semi-protect your userpage? You seem to attract some particularly nasty trolling there.--Jezebel'sPonyobons mots 21:39, 12 February 2014 (UTC)

Yes please. I am assuming the recent spate of vandalism and trolling is as a result of my reverting of vandalism elsewhere on Wikipedia, and the messages left on talk pages of new and IP users. -=# Amos E Wolfe talk #=- 22:25, 12 February 2014 (UTC)
Done. I didn't set an end time so if you feel like testing the waters with unprotection in the future just drop me a note or make a request at WP:RFUP. I find that the majority of the time if your userspace is undergoing a spate of vandalism it means you're doing something right! --Jezebel'sPonyobons mots 22:53, 12 February 2014 (UTC)

I have immediately learned my lesson.[edit]

Making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia was a terribly selfish and unconstructive thing to do. I shall start contributing constructively at once and shall never countenance such irresponsible behaviour again.

With utmost sincerity,

Page moves[edit]

You expressed an interest on the UK Rail page for moving the pages Reedham (Norfolk) and Reedham (Surrey). I've put them up to be moved here and here, together with Whitchurch (Hants) here.
